Maria Callas: The exhibition of the summer









she was called 
La Divina
and there is good reason for that.
Maria Callas
The voice of all times was a fascinating, pationate woman, with a sense of style and class that no other woman ever matched. 
I was very glad to visit today the exhibition taking place at the center of Athens, perfectly curated at the Theocharakis Foundation.
More than 200 personal items, photographs, and mementos of her life in three floors
 collected with love by the collector Nico Charalambopoulos
and several other sources
offer the visitor a unique portrait of the singer, the diva, the woman.

 15 May – 30th September 2017


9, Vas. Sofias Avenue & 1, Merlin Str.

Open daily: 
10a.m. – 6p.m.


Closed for summer holidays:
August 1-25

A Royal wedding











I am so romantic when it comes to weddings!
I felt so happy to see a trully British wedding unfold when Pippa Middleton, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge walked down the aisle to marry her longtime boyfriend, financier James Matthews in front of about 150 guests at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire, at a  11:30am service. May they live happy and well and long! 
And may we be happier!

All white house ... by the beach















Do I lovE  a house by the beach!
Do I lovE me white!
Yes I do! 
When I found this home on TUMBLR my heart skipped a beat.
I love the sofas
The wooden armchairs 
(I have a pair that can be perfectly transformed)
The throw
and most of all the bedroom
!!

Let them eat CAKE in Athens








A week ago, I received a couple of friends in Athens. 
As they don't visit often, I took them for a stroll in the most beautiful part of the city, next to the Acropolis, the Kolonaki area. 
Athens's fashion and good life district has always been home to me, and I trully love living in the city center. 
As it wasn't morning enough for coffee and midday enough for lunch, I chose CAKE , an american-style coffee house, owned by the Elliott clan, once neighbors in my hometown of Kifissia.
We tasted a lovely and light carrot cake, a stevia mousse and a quiche that was an absolute delight. We had a quiet time connecting with each other, with the discreet personel gently atteding to us. And we left happily ever after!
Though I might visit again soon as I do covet those mugs! I do believe though -and I said so to the lady in charge of the shop- that a line with their delightful pink and green trademark colors would be a success. I'd definitively buy the latte cups!
