Crazy people all around

Last night I accidentally put my phone on silent so my goal to wake u early.... well just I will just say it didn't happen! Oh, I didn't put my alarm because well... my friends always send me morning messages and I use them as an alarm as well!! Don't judge, it's very useful.

Then I had breakfast and wanted to go out and maybe buy a book. Then I found out I had one i haven't had the chance to read yet so i started it today and it is really uplifting and romantic. It's called Three Amazing Things About You by Jill Mansell. It's really really good so I was trying to resist the urge to sit home all day long read and listen to Ed Sheeran who want's me to give him some love. 

I didn't do it though and I am proud (small victory). I had to do something for my mother. My mother has a small restaurant called Petra's in down town Athens and after 2 years of running the restaurant and cooking someone from the government showed up and asked for some papers she didn't have (because she didn't know she ought to have of course, very common here). So she is supposed to so to a seminar but it was at 2 o clock, the worst hour of the day for her to leave the restaurant. I had to go to the seminar and asked for her to be excused. I have to go again on Friday and take the books she has to study to give the exam (if the exam actually happens of course, an other common thing). And of course i had to pay for the seminar. 
Anyway i had to walk 5.6 kmh total, so that was really good since I still can't convince myself to go to the gym. Then I had an ice cream with my best friend... But I walked! (No idea why but I feel the need to eat something sweet every day, I have to stop that somehow)

Go to the gym. That's an other thing I have to start doing again. It's weird. As I told you yesterday I don't really have the motivation to do many thing. I used to go to the gym a lot. I love working out, it makes me feel better about myself. 

Ok that's something I will do tomorrow. I promise you that I will go to the gym. Fingers crossed. 

In USA all they speak about is Kim Kardashian's new baby and here all you here all day long is if we will stay at the EU or not. Actually if we are going to still Euro as our coin after this Sunday. I had to use the metro today and I actually heard a fight between a young who was against Euro and an old one who was pro Euro. Yes this happened. People are going a little bit crazy this days in Greece. There is a strong uncertainty in the air. 

Anyway. This blog is kind of my way out of all of this.

See you tommorow,



Trying to get through reality

Ok this is it. I am changing some things. This blog used to be about fashion and don't get me wrong I am still very much into it. The reason I didn't update so much was because i started it when I was still studying for my degree and although that was hard, working in fashion was of course taking up all of my time.
I worked at an atelier for a little bit more that a year, which I loved but after that i wanted to try something else. So i started working for a website as a fashion editor. That was cool for a little bit and will love doing that again but with a little bit more freedom. I mean not someone else telling me exactly what to put on my article. What's the point in that right?
After that i worked for a very famous Greek Stylist and later on a greek fashion company which realised after a few months that they couldn't support my salary. So they fired me.

Here I am now reading books all day long, movies, tv shows and trying to get out of bed every morning. Because when you don't have any obligations for the day, believe me when I say you feel that there is no reason to get up and live.

Trying to find a job in the fashion industry was always very difficult, but try finding one in this economic crisis is just impossible.

So to keep me a little bit motivated I am going to use you as my therapy.

I always had a thing for trying new recipes, which of course I found on Pinterest. I am going to post here some that i have found were good because as you know there are many recipes for exactly the same thing. God (and my boyfriend) only knows how many Cinnabon recipes i have tried.

Oh! In the picture it's me and my two best friends, the middle one has just graduated and the short one (sorry) just got married, i was her maid of honor, or as we say koumpara in Greece. These two help me a lot and they keep trying to motivate me. So they deserve being in the photo :)
