September 2011 in pictures

     The only flower in my parents' summerhouse that survives through
     the whole winter! What a fighter...

     Some fruit and vegetables from our bio garden.
     One of those mini watermelons ended up...

     ...in an early halloweeny ornament!

     I fed the neighbour's dog with some leftovers and the poor thing fell
     asleep with his legs open cause his tummy was so full!

     Meet Cookie!!! Awwww my little baby!!! 

     On our return to Athens, there are these two hideous houses that
     literally crack me up whenever we pass them by... I call this one
     the "Bird House"... 

     ...and this is, respectably, the "Barbie house"!

     Back to Athens, a beautiful gloomy sky...

     ...and the first raindrops.

     Two beautiful buildings shot at sunset... 

     ...memoirs of an optimistic and prosperous city. 

     The entrance sign to a legendary restaurant and one of the most
     charming art-deco manifestations you'll ever come across in Athens.

     Who would believe this is a pic of Ermou str., shot 80 years ago?

     This is a solid example of why I'll always love my city and its people,
     no matter the hardships we're all currently faced with. See, these
     guys are not protesting against austerity measures: they are actors
     and opera singers from the National Opera, parading around
     downtown Athens to advertise a new series of performances with
     free entrance to the public.

     A trip to Ikea. I so want this platter!

     My attempt to sweet and sour chicken with noodles...

     French apple pie- of which the recipe kept me busy for a whole day!

     Did it taste yummy, at least? Nope, don't think so! *thumbs down*

     Having a beer with a friend. Love my contoured cheeks, if I may say
     so myself! tehehe

     I saved the strangest pic for the end: no, these are not UFO saucer
     disks- more like sunflowers hanging down to protect the seeds from
     getting wet...

Hope you enjoyed my collection of photos I shot during September!
I find it so relaxing to stray from beauty related stuff once in a while...

Much love to all    xx xx



  1. το barbie house είναι κι εμένα από τα "αγαπημένα" μου. δεν ξέρω αν έχεις πετύχει και ένα ροζ ρετρό αμάξι που έχουν μερικές φορές παρκαρισμένο απέξω! (κάντιλακ ή κατι τέτοιο)

  2. Χαχαχα ναι το έχω πετύχει! Έχει καθόλου άντρες αυτό το σπίτι; Φαντάζομαι να μένει καμιά ξανθιά γεροντοκόρη με καμιά δεκαριά τσιουάουα για συντροφιά...

  3. I really like this post , i think you should do more of them. :) xo

  4. Oh I'm glad you liked it, huniii! xx

  5. Υπέροχο ποστ!

  6. Αχ cookie je t' aime. Love dogs! Χαχα το barbie house είναι τόοοοοοοσο cult και επειδή έχω δει και το γνωστό ροζ αμάξι να σας ενημερώσω ότι το οδηγούσε άντρας!! Επίσης φοβερό το μποστανάκι σας! Εμείς έχουμε μόνο ντοματούλες, πιπεριές και μελιτζάνες αλλά σιγά σιγά ο μπαμπάς που τρελαίνεται να ασχολείται βάζει κι άλλα. Φιλάκια και να κάνεις κι άλλα τέτοια post.

  10. it seems that pink house is famous!i 've seen it myself(numerous times) and i was like "what they were thinking?" Haloween watermelon is so funny! Lovely post!

  11. The pink house is trendy kai esy eisai kakoproaireth :P (classico aksiotheato pantws)
    I love this picture of you having a beer casually...!!I might have to do one of these posts again cause I forgot how much I like them.
    Also, that picture of Ermou is so pretty..and you can see Kapnikarea in the distance...! :)

  12. @Glayki, σ'ευχαριστώ Γλαύκη, χαίρομαι πολύ που σου άρεσε! xx

    @mariza, όχι ρε συ, άντρας σε ροζ Κάντιλακ; Μπράβο αυτοπεποίθηση! Ναι, κι εμένα οι δικοί μου φροντίζουν αυτό το μικρό κηπάκι και είναι καταευχαριστημένοι ;)

    @FashionSugarBubbles, ναι το χρυσό μου! Είναι το καλύτερο σκυλάκι του κόσμου! xx

    @fashion written with a lipstick, hi lovely! I'm so glad you liked it! Yeah I made an effort to eat something "exotic" and kinda failed... To my defence, it was eatable though! haha xx

  13. @The Afternoon Tea, personally Autumn is my fave season of the year! Thx for the link ;)

    @afro, haha exactly! What was going on in their minds and came up with this pink-all-over theme? I see it's growing into a cult landmark! hehe xx

    @Athina, oh you should totally do a random post like this... To me it's therapeutic, in a way. Και κατά βάθος ζηλεύω το θάρρος του ιδιοκτήτη που γούσταρε να βάψει το σπίτι του ροζ και το'κανε! xx

  14. η φωτογραφία με τα λαχανικά και τα φρούτα είναι πραγματικά ένα αριστούργημα. δεν ήταν άσχημη ερμού 80 χρόνια πριν.

  16. Χεχε όλο το καλοκαίρι είχαμε λαχανικά ένα σωρό!Είδες και την Ερμού; Αγνώριστη!

  17. Haha, imagine if the owner of that Barbie house actually saw this post. Would it convince her (surely, it must be a HER) to change the colour?!

    Maria xx

  18. Haha, probably not! I think of her as a die-hard Barbie girl!

  19. Love these posts doll!!!
    PS: You have an eye for photography, I'm convinced now!!!


  20. Oh thank you sweetie! I only do the best i can with my crappy camera! Wish one day I'll be able to get a proper dslr camera, sigh...
