Days in the city

The past days have been rather quiet and predictable, but not dull at all! I enjoy this season the most; everything feels very refreshing and new. Despite the fact that the weather seems to be regressing (after 18 degrees, we went back to 5!!), I crave for some time by the sea reading a book, without being annoyed by rather talkative people!

 So, long story short, I finished reading Lolita (marvellous book!), I went to the University and after that I met with my best friend for a coffee and ate that delicious chocolate muffin, and later on we discovered a very well hidden underground bookshop!! I also finished cross-stitching the small rose and I'll send it this week to my grand-mother!

During those days I wore my brand new braided headband made by my mom! You can also see it at this post at the Petit Tricot blog!

The past week a group of bloggers from Thessaloniki were invited to the presentation of the new Accessorize and Monsoon spring collection On the occasion of the renovation of one of the Accessorize shops. It was a sweet opportunity to meet the girls, Joanna and Dimitra, who organised the whole thing, and get to see all the new things in the shop! 

 We were rather enthusiastic with all the shiny and romantic necklaces and earrings, the floral and retro sunglasses, the stationery and of course the countless bag designs!! Everything was based on the five styles: Eden, Bloom, Debutante, Geisha and Indigo. India and Bollywood were the main inspiration for most of the accessories. The shop was the first to be renovated; neutral, calm colors and quirky colourful details along with the lighting offered a refreshing result! We were glad to learn about the new designs, but -mostly- we were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to choose our favorite thing and take it as a gift!

 Despite the fact that I was dizzy with all the necklaces, pendants, rings and hair accessories, I chose a backpack with really interesting and beautiful motives, which will accompany me from now on, as it is handy,     comfortable and ideal for those heavy books I'm carrying everyday!

 Once again, thanks a lot, Joanna, Dimitra & Accessorize!

Spring stardust..




books & yarns

leisure time

cross stitch


 The last few days I felt rather uninspired and that's why I didn't post anything new! Fortunately spring came along, my winter job is coming to an end, which means that the weather is sunny most of the time. So, it's the flower time of the year, which I enjoy the most!

Today I went downtown and I bought some yarn, threads, a book and some flowers! I am cross stitching this flower -which looks really small and simple, but it's not!- for my grandmother, I'm reading Lolita and I'm about to finish knitting my jumper before I start knitting my scarf!Soon enough you'll get to see all the knitted creations at the renovated Petit Tricot blogspot. Me and my mother really want to give this whole thing a try, so we'd really appreciate it, if you could stop by and drop a line or two!Also, for inspirational reasons, Petit Tricot got a tumblr blog!

 What have you been up to lately?!

 I'll be back soon!
