Hello, I am a stay-at-home mom of three lovely daughters, I like cooking and culinary and I am interested in interior design, I am a chocolate lover and enjoy preparing all kind of desserts at home, I am keen on the idea of mastering my skills and I like experimenting with tastes and combinations. In my free time, I adore travelling with my family, hiking in the mountains and visiting crowded touristic sights and small quiet and calm places. I started this blog, because I don’t want to forget the details and the everydayness, and that is why I am writing. Have a nice time reading!

Real Estate Photography Tips

Here’s my advice!

Either get really good at real estate photography by studying the art and investing in the proper equipment or hire a professional who has already invested hundred of hours in knowing how to produce amazing photos. Don’t end up on this page.

Below is a photo that is better than most shots I have seen taken by agents. It’s not great but I want to give you an idea of what can be done after a shoot in Photoshop. Typical of agents photos are under exposed areas because of the lack of flash power, not using a wide enough lens, and washed out colors.

And below is a the same photo run through Photoshop. The exposure was raised, the blues were enhanced, the shadows lifted, the reflections adjusted, and the lens distortion corrected.…

Englishman in Halkidiki

Two years ago I didn’t know what Halkidiki is. Greece was a country I have heard a lot about, a country with ancient history, touristic sights – remarkable and enthralling, and some places too popular for their magnificent and picturesque views and their luxurious resorts. Only then very enthusiastic I booked a one week vacation in a place that seemed all wild and quiet, tranquil and far away from the crowds, a place that is not Cannes or LA, but is unique and inspiring. These all were my expectations and I can honestly state that I was not disappointed at all. When I landed in Thessaloniki, the capital of Northern Greece, there was another side of this impressive country that I noticed.

Travelling to Halkidiki – a lovely peninsula, in the Greek region Macedonia, I was left out of breath.

I never knew house hunting could be that much fun

Since I graduated from my high school many years ago, I have lived in so many places, starting with my small dormitory room I shared with my now best friend and ending up at my current home I live in with my growing family. To be honest I am not one of those people who get too easily attached to things or places and this doesn’t mean that I am not sentimental, but I simply believe that keeping the memories, the sensation and emotions in my mind, in my heart is far better than never leaving that very first home I rented where I could barely walk and find anything, because it was so small and so messy. Change is part of life, the most constant one indeed and I have to admit that I like it – it reminds me that I am alive and it makes me enthusiastic.

Cleaning the electronic devices easy and fast

computer-336628We all have them at home. Well, we not only have them, but we use them more than frequently – we check the news, the weather, our friends in Facebook, the new movie everybody is talking about, the new trends from the fashion week in New York, the sights in the city we are visiting next month, the best night clubs in the downtown, the way we can clean everything at home. Yeah. They are always on and even too often in our hands. And while we are cleaning, we have some priorities that do not include cleaning these devices at all – we are vacuum-cleaning, and we are on our knees on the floor removing the grime and right after that we start washing the windows and what happens at the end is us on the sofa in the evening watching TV and noticing the little kid’s fingerprints right in the middle of the screen and the awful stain from chocolate on the laptop.…

Travel like Robinson Crusoe or the islands to visit this summer

What do you think of when you hear summer? This word only and the memories of so many past ones are taking you to seventh heaven, but indeed it is freedom, sea and waves, endlessness, waves, seagulls, hot sand, travelling, calmness, book on the beach, backpack and a mountain, sharing, being lost and being together, timelessness, joy, sun, ice creams, dresses and swim suits, carelessness,  hugs and kisses, road trips, long flights, or short ones, packing and unpacking, chilling at home, new people, sensations, being insane not to be remembered. If summer is all of this, the emanation of this whole emotion is an island and what it may offer you – a party, all your friends, music, laugh, bonfire on the beach, the moon in the sky, talks that matter and sensation that warm your heart.…

Hand luggage – instruction for use

Every time you start preparing yourself and your luggage for a flight, you start asking yourself so many questions about that hand luggage. What should I take, which bag should I use, maybe a small suitcase? Should I take make-up and cosmetics or better not? Do I need a laptop, or a charger? Am I going to sleep on board, yeah, better take an eye mask, no, they will probably give me one? Oh, is this thing going to beep during the security check? For God sake, I am taking everything. No, I will put them all in the main luggage and take only the passport with me. The real and one only question is, however, how can we find the balance of not taking too much, but having everything we need for a lovely and calm flight? …
