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…

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…
