{Travel Diary} Hot Hot Pink...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

My grandparents were rural farmers, so every time I go back to Greece, I love visiting their now unused land. It's just so beautiful and serene, and it reminds me of a childhood spent playing amongst the reeds and corn stalks with my cousins. We always had so much fun picking fruit and pretending that the creek below held magical water nymphs that conspired to capture us... Smart kids.

Happy Tuesday, lovelies! xx

{Travel Diary} Green & Blue

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
Hello lovelies! I'm back from my travels, and although I wish I could have stayed in Greece with my family forever, it sure does feel good to be home... I missed you guys! Now we get to play catch up — me with what went down during my trip and you guys with whatever you've been up to for the last two weeks... I'll go first.

My trip was amazing; I got to see family that I hadn't seen in (gasp!) seven years, eat all the delicious foods that I had missed oh-so much (including calamari, saganaki, real greek salad, fresh bread from the bakery and oh my God, the cheeses!), beach it up hard, revisit all my favourite spots in our hometown of Messolonghi (I was a bit of a party girl back in the day), and of course, spend time with my sweet grandma (yiayia!). She had good days and bad ones, but all in all, she seemed to be doing quite well — thanks to everyone who sent well wishes her way, I really appreciate your guys' support!

The only negative, aside from having to leave? The heat. It was stinking hot everyday single day, and as someone more accustomed to cooler temperatures, I was miserable. My hair always looked poopy, my makeup constantly sweated off (gross) and I was forced to take up permanent residence in front of a fan between the hours of 12 and 4. Not pretty. That's why it's a miracle I was able to take outfit photos at all, and I'd like to send a special thank you to my beautiful cousins Vasianna and Marilia for patiently taking my photos... You guys deserve a medal or something for putting up with me.

OK, that's enough about me, what did you guys get up to? I want to hear everything... Spill!

Thanks for reading, and stayed tuned for more Greece-themed posts this week. xx

Homeward Bound...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Welcome to my last scheduled post, lovelies! I'll be back home tomorrow, presumably jet lagged and suffering from some serious post-Greece depression (it's a thing, I swear)... But that said, I'm sure seeing my two loves (Mr. AiF and Meows, of course!) will perk me right up — the two of them seem to have that effect on me.

Thanks for reading this silly little blog while I've been out of town, and stay tuned for regular, real-time updates from here on out! And a special thank you goes out to my lovely friend Kastles for helping me take all these pics before my trip — you're a life saver, Kass!

Love you all... xx

Zig Zag...

I bought this dress for Greece, but because I'm pretty much the most impatient person ever, it made it's debut a week before my trip... Hey, a girl only has so much willpower, am I right? xx

Wardrobe Wednesday...


Nothing says summer to me more than stripes and straw hats, so I've had both on steady repeat this past month... And when I found these cute little shades at Forever 21, it was as if I had completed the holy trinity of summer dressing. Throw in a rosary for good measure, and you've got yourself party.

Happy Wardrobe Wednesday, lovelies! xx

Lucky Shorts...

I love these shorts, which were an oh-so thoughtful gift from my bestie, Kastles... I don't know how I've managed to keep them white for so long — let's just call it luck.

Happy Tuesday, love bugs! xx

Hello and happy Monday! As you read this, I'm probably drinking iced coffees (aka frappe!) and playing backgammon at the beach... Or at least that's what I hope I'll be doing. Either that, or anxiously swatting off mosquitos while my face melts off in the sweltering heat. It could go either way. xx

Red, White and Blue...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

There's nothing quite like a red, white and blue combo, and I couldn't get enough of this one today... These linen shorts are super old, but they've held up remarkably well considering they were a Forever 21 purchase. And when topped with a sequinned tank and statement necklace, they felt all shiny and new again... Gotta love the transformative power of clothing, right?

Happy weekending, lovelies! I can't wait to hear all about your plans, so be sure to fill me in in the comments! xx

Collared Whites & Leopards Brights

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

I was lucky enough to be sent a Press Moria top from one of my lovely sponsors, Shoppalu, and I couldn't love it more... It's super lightweight and comfy, while the cut and decorative trim have made it an instant favourite of mine. So when I was thinking about how I wanted to style it for this post, I figured there was no better item than my leopard Joes Jeans. And with the added kick from my trusty red flats, I was good to go...

Happy Thursday! xx

I still can't get enough of these H&M pants, even though I've practically worn them a million times before. This time, I paired them with a simple yellow blouse that offered ample ventilation (what can I say, it's hot!), as well as an old pair of sandals that had been seriously neglected lately. And with a little light accessorizing, I was out the door... Easy-peasy.

Thanks for reading, lovelies! xx

Go Time...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

As you read this, I'm ransacking my closet, frantically packing for my trip to Greece. I'll be leaving later tonight, and couldn't be more excited... But that doesn't change my intense packing-related anxiety. I'm one of those people who likes to be prepared for anything; stinking-hot weather, a night on the town, Armageddon — hey, you never know. Another equally shallow thing giving me anxiety today? What colour to paint my nails for this trip. I've had my nails bare for the last week — which is normally unheard of — in anticipation of, oh let's just go ahead and call it 'nail day.'  Do I want classic red? Mint? A snazzy neon? I can't make up my mind and the stress is getting to me... Help!

If you want to keep up with my trip over the next two weeks, be sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram! But if you would prefer the official recap when I return, that's cool too... Just enjoy the scheduled content I've prepared for you in the meantime. xx

Bon Voyage!


Hello lovelies! I just wanted to give you guys a heads up that I'll be heading to Greece for the next two weeks to visit my grandma... It's been seven long years since I've been back, and now that she's in failing health, I decided that I couldn't put it off any longer. I'm super excited to see my family again, eat as many olive oil-slathered foods as possible, and lounge on those sandy-white beaches (with SPF 300, if they make it!), but it's with a heavy heart that I'll do those things... Such is life though, right?

But I refuse to get all Debby-downer on you guys, so let's focus on the positives, shall we? I've scheduled posts for the next two weeks (fun!), and I'll be updating you on my trip via Twitter and Instagram, so be sure to subscribe to those if you haven't already to keep up with the haps!

Oh, and one more thing: I have a giveaway winner to announce! Congratulations to Danielle from Love and Look Pretty for winning a Flavor bracelet! Yay, Danielle!

Love you all,

Bermuda, Bahama, Come on Pretty Mama...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Today is all about simplicity: basic bermudas, stripes and sandals topped with a panama hat to protect my little noggin from all that blaring sun... Because really, what more do you need on a hot summer's day? Oh yeah, that's right — ice cream. How could I forget...

Happy Thursday, lovelies! Stay cool and hydrated please.
