Greece as you don’t know it

Imagine the little houses painted in white and blue, little shops full of traditional pastry and souvenirs, crowds of tourists walking down the steep stone streets. Greece – that’s the image we all have in our heads when we think about it. Well this summer, together  with my family we went on a bit different but just as exciting adventure to the little village of Karitsa near the Olympus mountain, where peaks meet the Agean sea and it seems as if the time has stopped. When we were laying near the infinity pool of our hotel, sometimes you could hear no sound at all, even during the day, other than the noise of a man cutting grass somewhere in the fields. That was the region of Karitsa – it indeed seems that time has stopped. In the village itself we hardly met a person understanding a word of english, and the only restaurant on the main square did not have a menu, neither prices of the meals. It was such a real and authentic experience and of course I did my favourite thing to get to know the place I’m in – went running, which was even more fun – greeting the few people I met on the road and seeing the old ladies and gents, coming out in the late afternoon hours with a coffee in their hand, speaking loudly in this language I don’t understand 🙂

I have to say that the place we stayed at – Dohos hotel, was absolutely lovely, and  I have rarely stayed at a place where there is not a single thing to criticise. The decor of the rooms was beautiful and full of details, every single one of them overlooking the infinity pool and Agean sea. They have their own garden where they pick herbs and veggies for the delicious food, and make their own marmalades, including one from vanilla fruit, which they serve at breakfast. On Sunday evening there was a delicious barbeque for all guests with awesome music, which made it a night we won’t forget. 🙂 What stayed in my mind most, though, was everyone’s genuine friendliness – people were just super nice and made sure we felt great at all times. As they say, people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel 🙂

Style Inspo: Rachel Green

Anyone else who has watched every single Friends episode multiple times? Let’s face it, we’re all guilty, and not even sorry 🙂 I, personally, can’t help but laugh at the same jokes, even when I know they’re coming, every-single-time 😀 But also, right from the beginning we knew there was something about that Rachel Green style. From that moment when she stumbled into the coffee house in a wedding dress, it was clear she could make a statement. She has proven it, after all, by scoring jobs at Bloomingdales and Ralph Lauren, so we can shamelessly admit that we got some style inspiration from Rachel one time or another, from that timeless 90s slip dress, to all the different kinds of dungarees, belted and fold-down, short or long. Every now and then she was giving lessons on layering like a pro. If there was a Rachel Green emoji though, it would probably be wearing her signature denim waistcoat. And finally, whether it’s the colours of that olive green flowered dress that go so well with Rachel’s complexion, or the cut, or the excitement because in this episode Rachel made out with Joey – but this dress is just perfection <3
