Passion for Coco Noir

Coco Noir… sounds very mystique, sensual and femme fatal! A Chanel lover cannot avoid the destiny of owning this luxury black bottle, thus here it comes shooting straight to the top and lands next to its previous generation No5. and Coco. However after reading numerous reviews it also carries a sense of mixed feelings! Created by Jacques Polge and Christopher Sheldrake, the world was waiting for the launch. The spotlight, the critique and the great expectations. At first you feel a slight scent of the Coco Mademoiselle coming from the bottle and then the darkness fades and tenderness appears. Baroque it no longer is, but give me a chance to shine…screams Coco Noir! Until next time lovelies. xoxo ES

Passion for Malie Kareli - Birthday Celebration

Happy Friday everyone! In this post I would like to share the photos from our evening in Malie Kareli where we celebrated my aunt’s birthday on Wednesday. Malie Kareli is a village located 25 kilometres from the center of the city, and it is an open air museum of wooden architecture and folklore art. Here visitors can find old traditional wooden houses, chapels, windmills, churches, cathedrals and other masterpieces of wooden architecture. We had dinner in a traditional restaurant.

Passion for a day at Sia

On Sunday my family and I drove to the St. Anthony Monastery on the River Sia. This is the place where my mother and aunt spent their childhood summers. As a tradition women should wear skirts and scarves around their heads, so I sort of transformed the look during the visit to the monastery. Afterwards we went to the river where we had a picnic for the rest of the day. My cousin took me for a ride in the boat where we picked water lilies. I believe that the photos speak for themselves. Until next time, keep exploring. xoxo ES

Passion for Archangelsk City

Happy Monday everyone! Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead. I would like to share with you some photos from a stroll around Archangelsk, which is where I was born and raised until I was 8 before moving to Athens, Greece. The first photo is a statue dedicated to the famous artist and story teller, Stepan Pisahov.  His statue is a landmark in the city located on the boulevard close to the museum. Pesahov’s museum housing more than 150 of his works however the building is currently under repair and only a few of his works are exhibited in another museum which I visited. Coming up next a trip to the monastery. Until next time. xoxo ES

Passion for Nature - Summer in Russia

Happy Thursday everyone! The week is almost over and it feels great to be on holidays. Here are a few more photos from the last weekend spent at the dacha (summer house). The dress which I am wearing was worn by my grandmother during her honeymoon and must be more than 50 years old. It is definitely a vintage piece! The weather has changed drastically over the past few days and it is around 10 degrees Celsius, freezing in August. Enjoy the rest of the week. Until next time. xoxo ES

Passion for "Dacha" - Summer in Russia

Good morning fashionistas! Have a great start of the week. I am writing to you from Russia, after 11 years I am finally visiting my home town where I was born and lived until I was 8 years old before moving to Greece. This place is full of childhood memories and it feels great to reminisce about the past. The first weekend was spent at our summer house or else in Russia it is known as the “dacha”. A place where you can totally unwind, enjoy the nature and appreciate life! The headband which I am wearing was made by my aunt who picked fresh flowers from the garden. Welcome to Russia!
