Sunflower Walex

There are some girls who can really wear yellow, and then there's the rest of us.

Turquoise on magenta

Both pairs of clip earrings and bead necklace, vintage. Silver chain necklace with interlocking turquoise rope and bead bracelet, Accessorize.

These is just a selection of the turquoise jewellery I packed for my vacation. The thing with turquoise is that you can really wear it with just about anything in summer - maybe except other shades of blue.

Samos summer wine

It was a shame of me to always spend my summers in Samos and never having visited the Wine Museum of the Samos Vinicultural Cooperative.

This time my friends and I decided to fix that.

There's also this quite interesting perk that played a part in our decision:
After a brisk walk through the museum, you get to enjoy some wine tasting!

Here's sister Effie enjoying a glass (or two).
Quite fitting for the pic to be blurry, don't you think?

I was later even happier to discover that the Union of Vinicultural Cooperatives of Samos has issued a very cute and helpful cocktail catalogue complete with recipes, yummy pics and all, using only Samos wines (most especially the famous Samos Vin Doux, which is quite strong I tell you) using cocktail names like Vanillatini, Samos Sangria, Ginger Wine, Samos Mojito, Melon Smoothie, Samos Screwdriver and Samos Breeze. More info on the bottom of the page here.

And guess what, it's available for downloading in PDF form.

Cocktail season ain't over till we say so!

Summer reds

Red cotton skirt and straw hat, ZARA. Checkered top, PULL&BEAR. Bracelet and embelished sandals, Accessorize. Embroidered bag, A.L.E. by Attrattivo, courtesy of FALTSO

Τhese past few weeks, I've been living in such attire. Simple, loose clothing and all natural materials - cotton, leather, straw - as I can't stand anything heavier touching my skin during the Greek summer heat.

Cat napping

...or how I spent my whole weekend, along with good, albeit furry company.

(I've recently added a label for all posts containing his majesty, to see them just click Spyros below or here)

Let me quote you

"My patriotic duty as a Greek man of my age has been served by my buying of a copy of the current French Vogue with photographs and texts that make you believe you will live your/a myth in Greece. It also features hot topless models."
