Does long distance work?

My boyfriend will be leaving the country next year for studies. Long distance is something that has come up. Is there anyone who has experienced long distance relationships? What are your thoughts? Advice? It sounds really hard. Please let me know in the comments below!

The weirdest DIY “photography studio”

Most normal bloggers have to deal with crappy lighting and mediocre phone cameras. So do I! So people definitely ask me “how do you get semi presentable photos?” Unfortunately if you don’t own photography lights the only other chance for a good shot is natural lighting. So a sunny day is your best ally. But unless you want to look like a crazy person shooting a flat lay in the middle of the street you have to do it inside the house. You will need:

  • A big sunny window
  • A cute (preferably white ) blanket 
  • A big surface 

Set your blanket as your background on the area that the window is overlooking and use your phone to take the photos. Some editing and the photos are ready to be posted.  If it works it’s not stupid!

    A scent to remember 

    I love the idea of people smelling a particular smell and immediately connecting it to me. With a billion of amazing fragrances in the market you could wear a different one every day for your whole life. It is tempting to say the least. But it’s really amazing to think my friends, my family, my boyfriend are somewhere smelling a girl wearing the same cologne and instantly think about me. I love walking out of a room knowing that whoever walks in next will know I was there. I love when my boyfriend says I miss your smell I know exactly what he talks about. It took me years to find a smell that I loved and suited me, my character and I what I wanted to show the world. And I found it. That smell for me is Dior Addict.

    Dior Addict Eau de Parfum unleashes fresh and captivating top notes that blend Mandarin Leaf with Tunisian Orange Blossom. 

    Intense and vibrant, it reveals a powerful heart of Jasmine Sambac Absolute that blossoms with soft femininity and sensuality. The base unfurls in the deep and exquisite warmth of Bourbon Vanilla. 

    A soft and seductive trail tinged with light. 

    Although it is the perfect smell for me I unfortunately realized that although amazing for the colder months it was to heavy for Greece’s hot summers. So I had to make a compromise. I decided to wear my favorite perfume for as long as it’s cold outside and switch it when the weather starts to get warmer. So I went in search again for the perfect summer scent. I chose Armani Code,  a fresh, sexy, feminine blend of zesty blood orange, ginger, and pear sorbet softened with hints of sambac jasmine, orange blossom, and lavender honey, warmed with precious woods and vanilla.

    There is definitely a theme! Everyone is different some people have a signature scent and some don’t. Either way check these two out. You might fall in love like I did or maybe you’ll have to keep searching a bit longer. Your perfect scent is out there. 

    What is your favorite scent? Let me know in the comments below. Maybe you’ll be the reason I’ll decide to switch things up!!!

    What I love about winter 

     
    It’s that time of year AGAIN!!! I love those cold months. There are these particular moments when the weather is really dull, it’s raining outside and you’re snuggled in your oversized sweater drinking hot chocolate and watching old classic movies that make you feel sooo nostalgic. Or when you sit for literally days doing nothing but getting lost in the pages of your favorite book. And then comes the holidays. No matter where you live or what you celebrate we all get the chance to be with friends and family and just feel blessed and loved. I love all those things. So we should cherish and feel grateful about those moments and enjoy them as much as we can because these will be the happy memories of our future!!!!

    Why you’re a winner


    No matter who you are and how “good” your life is on the outside depression can get you. This huge creepy monster is here to stay. It is whispering. It’s telling you to lie down. Why should you get up anyway? It’s telling you to stop trying. You can’t do it anyway. Now it’s screaming. Pain. Pain is the solution. And now you yell back. Or maybe you whisper. No… Still you’re fighting. You get out of bed no matter what it says. You push harder because you can do it. You take a hot bath. You take care of yourself. And every little thing that you do to take care of yourself is a stab to the chest of that ruthless monster. You weaken it enough so that someday you won’t be able to hear its screams…

    Taste the  Mediterranean-Dacos 

    Dacos is essentially a salad. Healthy and appriopriate for lunch and dinner as well as a sider or a starter. It’s also really quick and easy to make. Definitely a win win! So let’s get to it!

    You wil need (one serving):

    • Whole wheat barley rusk
    • 1 tomato
    •  Greek feta cheese
    • Olive oil
    • Oregano
    1. Break your rusk and put it in a deep plate. You’ll want to drizzle it with water to soften it. You can always add more.
    2. Chop up your tomato and add it to your plate.
    3. Do the same with the cheese 
    4. Drizzle some olive oil. A little goes a long way! Add more water if you feel that you need.
    5. Top off with some oregano
    6. You can serve it up with some lemon water

    That’s it. Quick,easy and tasty! Enjoy!
