Petr Shevchenko is a really good friend. Together we’ve had many laughs; he is kind-hearted and is always there to listen and encourage me. He is an amazing artist and I truly adore his art that channels so much spirituality and magic! His great talent will be showcased in a collateral event in this year’s Venice Biennale. Petr was born in Russia and raised in Switzerland and has been living in Athens for the past eight years, because he finds Greece wildly inspiring and loves its culture and people (Yes, he does!). He never ceases to remind me of the beauty of my own home country in fluent Greek, as he has become an avid speaker, turning our chats bilingual. I’m certain that many future interviews about him, will follow.

I was acquainted with the gifted Elvira Panagiotopoulou, founder and designer of the Di Gaia luxury shoes, as well as Phi-male, her new collection of hand-made espadrilles, initially through Instagram; her unique, contemporary designs with pop, sexy, and Greek elements, immediately drew my attention! Later on, summer 2018, in Patmos, I met Elvira herself, a successful, dynamic, and beautiful woman with an international reputation – undoubtedly a Greek success story, and I asked her to let me visit her studio, learn more and admire her creations firsthand!

Looking back on summer, my Grey Goose Spetses Weekend for the Regatta 2018 was definitely my highlight! I was so very fortunate to be a Grey Goose Greece ambassador for a second year and get to live, first-hand, the iconic brand’s sophisticated and tailor-made experiences. The Grey Goose team is truly a gem! Professionals, innovative and incredibly kind, they organized one- of- a kind experiences and events, in order to immerse us into the brand’s sophisticated, yet, contemporary philosophy. This time, I got to spend an exquisite weekend in one of my favorite islands, Spetses, get a front-row view of the Regatta, learn from the best mixologist experts how to prepare killer vodka martini cocktails, as well as taste gourmet vodka infused dishes at the Grey Goose Home – a beautiful Spetses villa, specially “formulated” for the weekend!

I adore writing and working with successful Greek brands that I support and Frezyderm is certainly one of these since for years now I‘ve been a big fan and use their products which are based on breakthrough technologies and are top quality! For this summer I’ve chosen to write about the absolute necessities, meaning what we all need with us on vacation!
“These girls need some laughter and happiness in their life”. That’s what Sofia Kouvelaki, Executive Director at The Home Project, told me. “They have been through so much trauma and hardships and I would like you to write and photograph them in a happy, therapeutic context. After all, they are kids, mostly teenagers and, despite their great stresses, they are also dealing with some very typical “teenage questions”… like, how to do their own make up! ”
So, this was my incentive to reach out and organize “The Home Project – Beauty Day”, sponsored by Smashbox cosmetics. With the kind help of Smashbox cosmetics, a team of five make-up artists came to one of the Home Project’s shelter for girls, and showed them how to do their own make up; they also provided them with a Smashbox beauty make-up kit bag to have. It was a day of joy in a therapeutic environment, it may have not changed the world, but it made fifteen girls very happy. We often forget that small actions do have an impact, and we all can find ways to help. People should help other people in need, as feelings have a universal language, they do matter and will always matter…
So happy & honored to have been chosen as a Greek Ambassador for Twilly d’Hermès, the new women’s perfume by Hermès! Inspired by the colorful, silk scarves, Twilly d’Hermès is such a daring fragrance, floral, spicy & exotic! “Designed for women who swim against the tide, impose their own rhythm and invent a brand new tempo ” – Christine Nagel, Hermès perfumer.
Can you think of anything better?!
LOVE to start my day with #Twilly !

This is the story of an artist, who is seriously in love with her home country, Greece, its rich tradition & folklore and… its fishing boats! I was honestly amazed by this young girl’s deeds and positive outlook on life, who found herself disembarking the 2:00 AM sea-jet on Schoinoussa, wearing bright fuchsia pants and looking out of place, only to win the hearts and respect of the local community within a few months! Christianna Economou (@chrieco29) in collaboration with “Agoni Grammi Gonimi”, a platform that designs and implements educational and social programs in remote areas of Greece, is reviving & documenting local traditions and crafts in the Small Cyclades. Her creations, fishing boats named “Fearless Boats / Καράβια Που Δεν Φοβήθηκαν”, are becoming symbols of local customs re-invention and serve to remind us that we should always appreciate and reflect on a country’s history and past… and that the best journeys in life are made on “Fearless Boats”…
