Grey Goose sophisticated night at Cycladic Museum, exquisite five course meal accompanied by the best Grey Goose Martini cocktails and of course, the best clan – our Grey Goose family! Oh, and also Santa was there too and yes, he brought presents! Merry Moments! #Made to celebrate #GreyGoose
Invited by Sophie Ravier, the woman behind The Yoga Mama Club, I travelled to Sifnos to do a yoga weekend retreat for the closing of the summer season. I thought I was going there just to chill a bit from my continuous state of anxiety and get my muscles fired up again with the help of my bestie Zoe Karamani, who is an amazing Ashtanga teacher. But this was only part of the experience… The Yoga Mama Club is about rebooting and feeling inspired; it is really about Sophie Ravier’s energy & good intentions that aim to bring people together and offer a mini, rejuvenating, soul-soothing break.
Greece is trully a blessed country, with divine greek islands that you can visit all year round! One of my favorites is Symi that I recently visited for a long weekend to celebrate my beloved friend’s Zoe’s birthday! We were a group of four girls with a check-list of paradise beaches, amazing tavernas, bars, shops and hidden knucks to visit… And we did go everywhere – trust me! Here are our tips from the weekend:
I’ve known Eugenia Kokkala-Mela since we were both teenagers, spending our greek summers in Spetses. So, I was thrilled to write this post about HEROES, her sophisticated Souvenir Shop – an absolute gem in Athens, Plaka! She has always been this incredible beauty, so opinionated and educated that carries the air of a Greek girl that has grown up and lived most of her life abroad.
#ANTIPAROS, a small Cycladic boho island, carefree and original that has attracted many worldide celebrities over the years! Especially on the last week of July and first weeks of August, the island is really buzzing with life and its tiny town, with traditional restaurants and bars, is crowded with sunkissed, good-looking people, both local and international. Antiparos can be a great place for family holidays and can be lived in a very tranquil & serene way… But my memories from this island – especially on the first weeks of August – are those of an alternative & unpretentious party scene! Throughout summers, I have witnessed lots of hook-ups and beginnings of love stories taking place there. And I have to admit that I, too, have fallen under the spell of the island on a rare blue moon…
A few weeks ago, GREY GOOSE invited me on a one of a kind press trip. I got to visit (and record in detail) Le Logis, GREY GOOSE’s home located in the Cognac region of France! The property itself is a 17th century French manor (once home to the lords of the region), with impeccably elegant interiors that depict the brand’s class & style. As for the exterior, grounds carefully planted and landscaped, there are vineyards and a greenhouse with a variety of fruits and herbs from the local countryside.
I’m falling in love with #SKIATHOS over time, and the more I visit it, it’s becoming evident to me that, at this stage of my life, this is my favorite Greek island to be! I had been many times in the past in Skiathos, but I can’t say I was as infatuated as I am today. As with every destination, however, if you visit it with “the right people” and get to go to “the right places“, then you get a sense of the local vibe, you find all the hidden gems and have the best food! You experience the best of what the island has to offer and get to see the sheer beauty of it!
I recently visited Los Angeles together with another blonde lady… She is from Belgium and her name is none other than Stella Artois! She quickly became my new favorite beer and companion (Martinis were put on hold for this trip..!), not only because of her lovely fair color and delicious taste, but also because she combines another favorite element of mine: Stars! “Stella” means star in Latin and that’s why there is one in every bottle!
