MONDAY MOOD BOARD: SHOEGAL OUT IN THE WORLD’S FIFTH BLOG BIRTHDAY

Yesterday it was Shoegal Out In The World’s 5th blog birthday. I almost forgot it to be honest. I am so glad that five years ago, I took a leap of faith and publish my very first blog post. Since then many things have changed around here but I am still here blogging my heart away. I feel the need to thank you all for these wonderful five years. Shoegal Out In The World wouldn’t be what it is if…

OCTOBER GOALS & A LIFE UPDATE

The last couple of months have been a blare. Summer came and gone and suddenly we are ten days in October. I feel I need to put things in order and start prepping for the months ahead. I love cocooning at home during the winter months and I am currently in a serious nesting mode. My business had a serious toll the last couple of months on the blog and the number of posts I posted. I have several drafts…

FALL BUCKET LIST

The only appropriate post for the first official day of fall could only be my Fall Bucket List. Fall is probably my favorite season and I can’t wait to enjoy all the things it has to offer. I love creating these lists as reminders to stop from time to time and mix things up. It is so easy to fall into the everyday routine and never-ending to-do lists. Instead of waiting forever for the perfect moment, small fun intermissions from…

FIVE WAYS TO FIGHT POST VACATION BLUES

I feel like I have to welcome back myself after this unintended blog hiatus that took place the last couple of weeks. To be honest, I didn’t realize that the post vacation blues had been the major reason for lack of posts. After returning from my vacation in the island of Kithira, I felt relaxed, energized but not really in the mood to get back to reality. I wanted to extend summer for a few more weeks. So I planned…

END OF THE SUMMER PARTY WITH PAPERLESS POST

I will start this post with a statement. I love snail mail. Every time I receive a card or an invitation through the mail, I feel a sense of excitement. Through the years, I have developed a habit of keeping cards and invitations from people dear to my heart as keepsakes. But I also send out cards to friends and family for their birthdays, the holidays, thank you cards or for no occasion at all. On my desk, I keep…

RECIPE: AFFOGATO AL CAFE

A few days ago while browsing through Pinterest I found a dessert recipe that combines two of my favorite things coffee and ice cream. It is so easy, delicious and perfect after a fulfilling meal or a daily indulgence. Affogato al Cafe Serves 1 Put a few scoops of best-quality vanilla ice cream (though you could also use chocolate ice cream) in a bowl, sundae dish or cappuccino cup. Pour over a shot of freshly made espresso and serve immediately. You could also…

AUGUST GOALS

Happy August! I might be on vacation, but this doesn’t mean, I am not setting new goals. Since August is the last month of summer before heading back to school, I am keeping things simple. Just three goals for this month, no pressure at all. Still on a summer mode for sure! Spend as much time as possible on the beach. Upon returning from our vacation, I plan to still hit local beaches a few times per week. I love…

FRIDAY FINDS | WEEK 03

TGIF!!! Actually, since I am on a vacation, I don’t really care what day it is but whatever. It’s nice spending time on the beach, eating great food, reading and enjoying the island life in general. But even though, I am on a vacation, it doesn’t mean I should leave you with some weekend reading. No, I did my homework on time and I found some interesting readings, that I hope you like them. Happy weekend! Emily Henderson’s website is…
