Long time, no see, I know…But I’m finally back. My blog actually turns 9 today, so I couldn’t stay away from that. I may not be very active around here lately, but I haven’t forgotten about my little blog. I missed writing here, and I actually had these photos in stock for quite a while now, but I didn’t have the time or the energy to write since my last blog post. We took these photos during our trip to Karpenisi, at the end of November, and I was meaning to post them, but I got so caught up with my Youtube channel, and all these Christmas videos I was filming and uploading, that my blog stayed a little bit behind. It usually happens around this time, because I’ve been doing Vlogmas for the past 3 Christmas’. But I didn’t do it this year, and I thought it would be different, but it really wasn’t. I can’t promise that I’ll be posting regularly here from now on, because the truth is, I don’t have any outfits shot yet, and the weather is too cold to be in the mood to photograph something, but I’ll do my best. Thank you for being here for as many years as you have. I’ll try not to be absent for too long from now on. For now, here are the photos we took near Karpenisi when we visited our friend back in November.
Last week I was in Athens again, for another Sephora event, that I didn’t want to miss. I didn’t take as many photos as the last time, because I was vlogging again, but here are the ones that I did take. Check out the descriptions under the photos for more details, and stay tuned for the vlog soon! 😉
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….
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 you might already know, I traveled to the Netherlands on the 8th of May, and stayed there for about 6 days, till the 13th. We arrived early at the evening of the 8th, so we didn’t have much time to do a lot that day. Since we were too hungry (hadn’t eaten anything all day), we headed to a place I wanted to try, called Jacketz, which specializes on baked potatoes with fillings and toppings, for lunch/dinner. It was delicious, but more on that on another post. After that we took a stroll around the city, which was cold and windy that day, had a walk near Leidseplein and headed back to our hotel, to get an early start the next day. On Tuesday the 9th, we started by having a nice breakfast at another food spot I wanted to try out, called Corner Bakery, which is as Instagrammable as it gets. hehe After that, we headed to Museumplein to take photos at the I Amsterdam sign, and then met up with Ioanna from The Colourful Bouquet who now lives in The Netherlands and she was our tour guide for the day. haha She took us around Amsterdam center, walked us through the flower market, the Red light district and many other places. Around noon, she left and we went to have lunch. After a short return to our hotel, we went back to Amsterdam for a night walk, and walked by the Red Light District again to see how it looks by night, before we returned back to the hotel for the night. It was a really full day, and we walked way too much, and I made sure to take as many photos as possible. The “outfit of the day” is coming soon, along with photos from day 3 in Keukenhof, and the days after that. So stay tuned. Have tons of content to share with you!
