I’m here with the second part of my travel diary from Athens. If you haven’t read the first one, here it is. I’ve already talked you through days 1-3, and here’s day 4, the day after the girls left. We started the day with breakfast/brunch near the area where we were staying. T. and I shared the fried eggs you see in the photo above in a cute little place called Monsieur Barbu. The red refreshment is homemade sour cherry juice. Read the captions under the photos to see what we did next, and watch the vlog at the end of this post, in case you missed it on the previous one.
Heyyy! I was finally able to go though the photos I took while I was in Athens, and I’m here to show you the diary from those days. I’ve already uploaded the vlog I filmed on my channel, but since it’s mostly in Greek, I wanted to make a post here as well. This is only part 1 though, because I had too many photos and I didn’t want the post to be cramped with them. We flew to Athens on Tuesday the 5th of September, with T., and arrived there late in the afternoon, but went straight to dinner with family/friends, so I don’t have photos from that day (you might want to watch the vlog though for some #foodporn). On the next day, my girls from Thessaloniki arrived too. You might already know them from their Youtube channels, on the photo above (left to right) we have Maria of Stylebows, Katerina of Kate Tzoe and Thalia of Miss Thalia. The reason we all went to Athens was because we were invited to attend the press event/launch party for Kat Von D Beauty, which is finally coming to Greece at the end of this month. The girls were too tired to do much, but here’s what we did… Read the captions under the photos for more….
A lot of you might wonder, “what does a post about baby showers has to do with a fashion blog”? The answer is simple though; It’s not just a fashion blog, it’s a lifestyle blog, which revolves around my personal life. And as you might already know, last month, I became an aunt for a second time, this time of a baby girl. We actually don’t have baby showers in my country, at least not in the same concept, but we do get gifts for the newborn babies and their mothers/families. So I wanted to talk about were you can buy such gifts online, and what kind of gift you should get.
This is officially the last post from my vacation to the Netherlands, and beware, it’s picture loaded. So let’s resume my “travel diary” from the place I’ve stopped. I’ve already showed you days 1 & 2 which were spent in Amsterdam, then, I shared my visit to the Keukenhof gardens which was magnificent, and I also shared a couple of outfits of the day (you can go back to see these ones if you’re interested). So now it’s time to show what we did after the gardens….After we left Keukenhof, we took a bus to Haarlem, to meet with Ioanna of the Colourful Bouquet blog, and then returned to our hotel for the night. The next day, was dedicated to Utrecht. We didn’t plan to spend the whole day there, but our arrival was delayed, and we decided to spend all day there to see the city, and meet with one of my cousins whom I hadn’t seen for a while, and who’s been living in the Netherlands for a few years now. The 5th day was all about Amsterdam again. I didn’t take many photos that day, but you can watch the video I’ll be embedding below, to see what else we did. First of all we went to Vondelpark, which despite the rain was amazing, then we went for a walk at the Jordaan District, and concluded the day, and our trip to Holland with a visit to Ripley’s Believe it or Not. Of course there was lots of food, and there are food pictures to testify to that. I hope you enjoy this post, and the photos I took for you. I’ll be happy to read your comments, so feel free to leave them below if you wish.
As promised, here’s the full look I was wearing on our visit to Keukenhof gardens. The original plan was to wear my grey midi dress with bare legs, and white sneakers, but the weather failed me so I had to layer up so as not to get a cold. When we arrived at Keukenhof, the weather was grey and cold, but around midday it turned sunny and warm. However I was happy to have chosen a less stylish, yet warmer option, cause when the sun set it was back to super cold weather. In my eyes, I looked super weird in this long dress, with jeans underneath and biker boots, but I had to layer with what I had. At least I got to open my jacket and remove my beanie and scarf after a while. The experience was magical, and I got to take some outfit photos even if I wasn’t so fond of this outfit. It is what I wore after all, and you’ll get nothing less from me. I don’t dress just for outfit posts, you know that. I photograph what I wear in real life, from casual looks and boots, to more formal looks with heels. Enjoy the photos and if you haven’t already, make sure to visit my previous posts as well, to see more photos of my trip to the Netherlands.
