Charlotte aux fraises

I celebrated my birthday in Chania. Like last year. Ria, my favourite Chania based pastry chef, made this Charlotte aux fraises for us. We have the same birthday, so we celebrated this year and last year together. We did nothing special, our day was nice and calm. We went to a lovely restaurant which recently opened for the summer season and had lunch there. Afterwards, we came back home. There were not many options left because of the freezing cold outside. To be honest, I was expecting a better weather for my birthday in March. Nevertheless, I am feeling grateful for the chance to celebrate my birthday in Chania once again and for this delicious Charlotte aux fraises.

Pottery: how, when and why

Pottery: how, when and why

I started experimenting with clay during the first lockdown in Vienna. It was a way for me to entertain myself at home, as I spent all the lockdowns alone …

I bought clay and started with making ring holders using my hands. When the lockdown was lifted, I searched for pottery courses in Vienna but they were all fully booked. I remember how desperate was I for not finding available courses loI…

One day I accidentally passed by a new pottery studio, which happened to be in my neighbourhood, and asked firstly if they offer lessons, and secondly if there are available places. This is where and how I had my first official lesson on the wheel.

Months later I came to Chania for a two months stay. This is where I got really lucky with pottery because the ceramic studio was 2 minutes away from the apartment I was staying at and ceramic courses were offered in my mother tongue!! This is where I really got to learn working on the wheel. I posted the lessons on my YouTube channel if you’d like to watch. Overall, I created 9 ceramic pieces and practiced a lot. The ceramic pieces in the photo are my favourites from what I created so far.

For the moment pottery is my hobby. But I find it so fascinating and I hope I will continue to play with clay and create beautiful things, that I can then give away to friends. Also curious to see how this new hobby will evolve for me and where it will bring me in the future…

Assuming things remain the same, the study estimates that accumulation will become 600 million metric tons by 2040” – National Geographic.

It’s been one year since I got these two pair of shoes. They are from Vivaia, an eco – friendly footwear brand that is making an effort to create sustainable and washable shoes by recycling plastic bottles! I washed my pointed-toe flats several times during this year, and they still look like brand new. Vivaia’s machine-washable shoes (flats and sneakers) can fully withstand a cleaning cycle in the washer or a quick hand washing. I have them in two colours: Deep Ebony and Ash Rose. They are flexible and comfortable! Sustainable and washable.

A Love Letter to My Greek Sandals

A Love Letter to My Greek Sandals – Backstory

A decade ago, I bought my first pair of Greek sandals and have been in love with them ever since. This article will be a long-winded and rambling piece about how much I adore these shoes and why I think everyone should own a pair or two in their lives (or ten or fifteen). Consider this your guide to everything you need to know about Greek sandals, and why you should consider taking the plunge yourself. You’ll never regret it!

Why I love my sandals

Greek sandals have been around since ancient times and they haven’t lost their popularity since then, especially not in the summer time! They are one of the most iconic styles of footwear ever created and there are still many companies that produce Greek sandals to this day. Here’s why I love them so much and why you should too!

They are comfortable and perfect for the warmer days. They can be dressed up or down and go with everything. I can wear them in the rain and they don’t get ruined. When it’s cold, they’re stylishly warm. There is nothing like a good pair of sandals!

ANESIS, a Greek brand specializing in women’s shoes, sent me these three pair of sandals. They are going to accompany all the happy moments in summer 2021. Thank you Sofia!

Peace of mind

Peace of mind Old Venetian Harbour Chania Crete

If you’re like most people, your stress levels are at an all-time high, and it’s completely understandable. The world seems to be more chaotic than ever before, and it’s hard to know what’s going on – or even how to process the headlines that appear in your social media feed every morning. With so much confusion and uncertainty swirling around us all the time, it can be difficult to find peace of mind. Luckily, there are some great steps you can take to help you find peace of mind during these turbulent times.

1) Take time to think about what matters

2) Do not feel obligated to use technology on every vacation

3) Small changes add up to bigger impact

4) Don’t let work dominate your life

5) Define your role at work

6) Cut out media overload

7) Minimize the decisions you make during the day

8) Prioritize quality time with friends and family

9) Reduce stress by eliminating things in your life that give you stress (People, Jobs, etc.)

10) Book a Vienna Photo Session with me : )
