This spring get sneakers and slips ons with prints!
Prints like:
Geometric, floral, cosmic, animal prints...

There are several choices for higher and lower budgets that are equally great to alter your spring/summer/happy mood-mode style!
A nice "safer" choice would be the animal print since it’s easier to combine with almost everything and is in fashion for quite some time so we are used to it and therefore more comfortable to create nice outfits.
A nice "refreshing" choice would be the floral print since the colors and the shapes of the flowers are beautiful and reminds us also of spring!
A nice more "edgy" choice would be the geometric or cosmic print since those require more inspiration and fantasy to be combined.

Just go with what makes YOU comfortable and happy!

Deco pallets!

It's not new the pallet furniture concept!
Apart from being a deco trend, I find this kind of furniture creative, chic and costless!
There are several ideas via the internet to be inspired of and videos to get the know-how, so next time you come across used “abandoned” pallets get them and be creative!

Re-discovering the center of Athens (Vol.I)

Visiting new (to me) places, tasting new (to me) flavors as if I am visiting a new city, while I’ve lived in its suburbs all my life! Getting to know a city is refreshing and interesting, and it’s even better when it is “your” city! 

The three places for Thursdays night out over the last month were:

“Pairidaeza” – A “Paradise” at Karitsi
Cool with vintage air and deco, Pairidaeza is a great cafĂ© bar to have a coffee / drink, or (even better) start your night out! Variety of drinks that along with the antique furniture form a retro bar background, while professional bartenders “capture” your attention with their tricks! Food is also on the “menu” with nice dishes, friendly environment, Jazz, Soul and Funk music, and “service at your needs”!

“Mama Roux” – Jazz and food and vice versa!
An all day bar restaurant near Monastiraki metro station – easy access / no car / no parking/ no worries! Simple but unique decoration, in an industrial space where all types of people gather, intellectual, hipsters, younger, older, couples or groups…Along with its international cuisine and its personnel, it gives the sense of an international place where you can relax by drinking your wine or beer and tasting culture flavors by listening to Jazz music!

“A for Athens” – We can pick THE view!
Right across Monastiraki train station – again easy access, no car, no parking, no worries! Entrance on the left side through the hotel lobby and the elevator takes you straight up to the terrace. Enjoy drinks at one of the best roof views admiring the magnificent Acropolis and Plaka!
