Happy Resolutions for a New Year

It is funny that we wait until the 1st of each year in order to make our resolutions. Maybe its the glittery feeling of the night or the sparkling wine in our lipstick stained glass that somewhat gives the impression of formality to all of this. It may be just another day, but it is…

DIY Christmas Wreath. Merry Christmas!

I met a lady in the train yesterday whom I know from the gym classes I take. She is lovely, highly educated, but so far unlucky in life. When I asked her how she was, she told me “these days are a bit difficult for me, being lonely and all”… I tried to change the…

Drying citrus fruits for decorations

Do you ever notice that some feelings are associated with smells?  Today it had to smell like orange. And clove. It had to be Christmas in every way possible around the house, as Christmas is the best anti-depressant for the moody winter days. Drying fruit for decorations proved to be much messier than I thought,…

Fragile dreams…

I have a soul that likes to hide. Half in the light and half in some very dark shadows. These two extremes have somehow found an ephemeral balance to the point of a certain kind of numbness. Never before did I feel so lost in thoughts as I do now. And never before did I…

DIY Christmas decorations (Galaxy circles)

As promised, the second super fast and easy Christmas decoration is now online too! No particular skills are needed for this one either! So for this decoration I used kid’s modelling paste (air dries) and some glitter and other shiny “galaxy” shapes. Method: Cut a small piece of the paste (cover the rest of it…

DIY Christmas decorations (Christmas Stars)

This year Christmas came back home. And by home I mean my parent’s house, where I grew up and after my dad died was abandoned, as my mom couldn’t stay in such a “negatively” charged environment any more. So it remained empty for 5 years. Difficult, challenging and sad years where we had to go…

Cinnamon biscuits, friends and Christmas. (by Evangelia P.)

We had a really wonderful Sunday with friends today. A large brunch, some November ice-creams (it is always a good time for ice-cream), lots of laughs, love, new souls, and latte cappuccino’s! It could not be better. This whole meeting really made me feel that we are close to the Christmas season, when everyone returns home…

Rainy days

Rainy days have finally started, reminding us again that in one week it is actually December. Autumn is gradually loosing its significance, as we seem to be moving from summer to winter and then to summer again, completely skipping fall and spring time. At least here in the big city there is no such thing as…

Some thoughts on self doubt.

A wise woman once said to me “Change is a law of nature, but fortunately humans have the ability to re-adjust”. I often ask myself what is right and what is wrong. If I am a good person or a bad one. If I am too little or too much for each occasion. How my worth…

Homemade herbal bath teas.

I don’t think anyone will disagree that Saturday is the best day of the week. You have the time to rest, go out, do the things you were waiting for the whole week and still have one day of sleep to go. I tend to take my time and think more on Saturdays. I plan,…

Those early mornings

There is a particular time early in the morning that time moves slower. It is unfortunate that most of us don’t have the time (ironic) to feel those moments, the smells and chill and early dew. Everything moves in-between the seconds then and there is plenty of time to reflect and slowly prepare your mind…

My new love for handcrafted ceramics.

So these last few days I had to go out of town for some business visits, but I am happy I managed to meet with good friends and share some moments – and drinks with them. A lovely company of people, who I know from University times and with whom I have apparently formed that…
