On Sunday night dinner was served chez Eleni Psychouli, with homemade cheese & olive breads, meat soup with veggies, pies and greek delicacies. Unpretentious hospitality, inherent kindness and love is what always makes those nights with her the best time spent ever.
Friday was one of those days that nothing could go wrong.
Benetton launched “One fits All”, a new series of underwear and loungewear -that is actually One Size and literally fits all- so light, overstretch and soft that you hardly feel the cotton on your skin. A lucky few were invited to test the new products, in an event quite different than anything else: A one-hour class of Aerial/Antigravity Yoga *APPLAUSE*.
I have to admit the time spent at Swaha Yoga Center swinging from giant hammocks from the ceil was fascinating. And though I don’t want to make you jealous, it got better. 45 minutes of body massage after that and lunch at the restaurant of Acropolis Museum is what made me a happy woman for the rest of the week.

The new “Cranberry” lipstick by Amway, together with a piece of chocolate from Fresh that once had my name on, the Summer 2013 fuchsia Valentino sling-backs, the book I currently read which is Michel Houellebecq’s “The Platform”, my Jil Sander dream-come-true from Raf Simon’s very last collection for the house, the entire color palette of Korres summer nail polish , a long-desired collectible vinyl of my truest love, aka Arthur Russell from 1986 that I got from Discogs and the very new Nike Air Max that arrived in my mailbox,
I am over thrilled with Prada’s latest toy, the web application dedicated to parfume “Rossetto”. I’ve already spent several hours creating collages (some of which you see below) and I just can’t stop. A different idea pops in my head every five minutes.
You may try it but I warn you, it’s highly addictive
“A digital project born from the collaboration with Michael Rock and New York’s studio 2×4. A platform that will allow users to create their own moodboard starting from the suggestion of different backdrops, where iconography and graphics with different references are applied. All in line with the user’s creativity and taste and – of course – signed off with the graphics of the new Prada fragrance, red lips”.
And four for tea.

It has been nothing of an autumn since the 1st of September so, a few days ago, I took the opportunity to pamper myself with something like a holidays extension at Costa Navarino. Relaxation overload in a magnificent location on the west coast of Peloponese, that was quite a surprise for me, since I didn’t know the resort’s highlight: an immense beach with thin, blonde sand and crystal clear water. Could I possibly ask for more? I did actually. I made a good use of the Anazoe Spa, I ate gigantic breakfasts, Ι picked lavender for my winter closets and slept for ours on white crisp sheets, feeling as we speak, more than ready to confront the weather change.

Dear diary, today I had the best time.
I felt like a student attending an educational visit to a candy factory, only in this occasion it was a visit to the futuristic and of extremely high standards factory of Korres Natural Products. Lena Korres, George Anthoulakis and the rest of the Korres team were gracious hosts, in the most well organized event I’ve attended the past few months. A tour around the plant facilities, the production line, the homeopathic section, the laboratories where the evolution of new ideas takes place, escorted by a presentation of the history of the brand and usefull
information, were more than interesting and enlightening.
This wasn’t the first time i visited Korres factory, since when it was first built, together with the Vogue Hellas team we did an entire fashion shooting there- and one of my favourites. A blast-from-the-past post and more photos to follow soon.
Congratulations to Korres “family” for the hard work, the succesful penetration to the
international markets, the design, the unique quality check and the vision.

What i really needed for my easter holidays was to stay home. Just stay there.
And relax by taking some good care of the house, cooking, dying psychedelic easter eggs and taking the usual annual photos of my wisteria tree, in full bloom. I also enjoyed a semi-celebrational vegie thai dinner at Miss-Athenes’s. Very. And some good music. And a hair mask. And matching my eggs with details of the house.
I spent my Saturday noon at Fashion Workshop by Vicky Kagia, participating in the panel of the 6th Fashion Talk (Workshop’s series of fashion seminars), amongst publishers and journalists, debating on Printed versus Digital Magazines. A very interesting conversation and an exciting experience overall.
