Snake chic in fusion with Argentina


Last night my friends and I went to an Argentinean dinner event which was held at the Athens Ledra Marriott hotel. We tried all sorts of fine cut meats and enjoyed the wine tasting of Argentinean’s finest grapes. Of course the famous tango was one of the highlights of the evening.

Fashion Shoot with Elle Russia

Back in the days when I used to work as a Marketing Executive for Capsis Hotels & Resorts I had organized a number of fashion shoots with glossy Russian magazines at the company’s luxurious resort in Aghia Pelaghia, Crete called the OUT OF THE BLUE, Capsis Elite Resort. Here is a story that we shot with ELLE Russia in September 2008. Days spent shooting after all the pre-event work has been done and all arrangements made are actually great fun. I will share more fashion stories in the coming week. Enjoy fashionistas xoxo ES

Destination Istanbul - Spectacular!

For my 27th Birthday I headed to Istanbul for a long weekend with my friend M. We stayed at the Pera district which is a vibrant place to be especially during the weekend when the city is enjoying the sounds of music, excitement and the buzz of the upcoming weekend. If you are planning to catch up on sleep it’s definitely not the location to be in, however if you are into bar hoping and enjoying the night, you have found your place. An approximately 1 hour and 20 minute flight from Athens, Istanbul is a perfect destination to enjoy great nightlife, food, shopping and sightseeing.
Hagia Sophia an important monument both for Byzantine and for Ottoman Empires.
On Saturday night we met up with my high school friend Ezel whom I haven’t seen for over 12 years and he took us to a special place where one can enjoy the traditional Turkish drink raki and meze.



On Sunday M and I headed to the Istinye Park shopping complex for some shopping therapy
