Dream trip to Greece

Some lovely blogger-friends told me “waiting for thetrip to Greece post!” –  here it is! In 2012 the lovely Em (please check her blog out, really outstanding!) came to London and we met! She invited me to visit her in her city – Thessaloniki, lovely! 8 days with nice tours, great food, phenomenal views and some shopping too (shown here)! A dream trip!

Some years ago I was in Athens, Igoumenitsa, Corfu, Patras and Corinth. Now Em, her boyfriend and cousin showed me Thessaloniki, Panorama, Thermi, N. Epivates, Perea and Chalkidiki (I loved Skione!) Her mother is, for me, the best cook in the world and Em made melomakarona for me! I ate delicious things I didn’t know, learned more Greek words and saw great churches!

They were so lovely and patient – took so many photos (thanks)! I tried to show some now, not only 3 :) A lot, but the blog is a “diary” and these are my favorite pictures. I could split them into 2 posts, but… no. It’s now. Please bear with me let’s start the tour!

Birthday weekend

Thanks so much for the amazing birthday wishes!

They really made my day even brighter!

My birthday lasts around a week :) People start greeting me some days before it and end around the first week of February – I find it so cool! But in fact it was last Friday :)

To keep the “tradition” on Jan 30th I was on birthday mood, and wore this:

Nice MIssoni dress, vest - my design

Nice Missoni dress, knitting detail; vest – my design

“Tradition” means new clothes and shoes on my birthday and new year’s eve :)

Ankle boots, Sophia Webster

I got lots of gifts, calls, texts, emails… talked to my family and it completed my day…  more than presents, the love of so nice friends is what makes the day a real treasure.

Thank you so much for your sweet comments! I really love them!

Have a great day, full of sincere smiles!

Day, night and some more beach wisdom!

After 5 months away, I got back to the UK  a month ago and went to the beach here, too.  As I usually only post on Mondays,  please bear with me – lots of pics (a month!)  :)

I love denim – especially denim jackets. I thought of a

Day and Night  variation with the same denim jacket:

Day

Day: Craft n Clothes skirt (as in previous post); Jacket Conley’s; high heeled boots bought now in Tenby, at Peacocks; bag C & A Germany; jumper Next

Shoes jacket

Night: Conley’s jacket, Heine’s dress, Bertie shoes, Bijou Brigitte belt, Lulu Guinness pouch

Belt pouch

A bit of belt and pouch detailing

Shoes

Tenby

This is one of my favorite places in the world. Tenby in Wales

Tenby

I’m glad I went to Tenby again

Blurred

Sorry – blurry photo! I quite like this “effect”. Coat bought in the south of Brazil, scarf Burberry, bag slightly shown there :) Shoes, same Chie Mihara (in previous post)

 No less than Valentino... March 2013

If Valentino uses blurry pictures in his campaigns (March 2013) …  then I can do it, too!
