Favorite color: My favorite color probably is blue. From pastel baby blue to cobalt. I love it all!
Favorite number: 15, I don’t know why… It probably should be 40 since my name means 40 in Greek and I am born on 4 October but nope, it’s 15 haha.
Dream career: I would love to have my own company where I can combine my biggest passions, fashion, psychology, writing and reading.
Where do you see yourself living when you’re on your own? I already live on my own, together with my lovely boyfriend hihi. But in the end I don’t think I would stay in the Netherlands my whole life. Maybe New York someday? For now I am very happy with where I live… I do miss some animals though πŸ˜‰
Favorite way to travel: By plane, I love travelling long distances. But just in Holland, by car I think. I love driving, music on, singing, laughing out loud over the horrible radio jokes.

What do you do in your free time? I do a lot of different things. Hanging out with friends, meeting up with fellow bloggers, watching a bunch of TV series, reading, listening to music. 
Favorite clothing stores: I really like Zara at the moment but I like H&M a lot as well.. My favorite online clothing store is
Who would you like to see in concert? Metallica. I love rock music and I would really like to experience a concert of these guys. Last week I was thinking how these guys are pretty old already and maybe I will never see them perform on stage. That would be a bummer…
Favorite tea blend? Fresh Moroccan mint tea, yumm!
Do you collect anyting? Books and nailpolish haha. I actually have a lot of books that I still need to read. I really feel like it’s time to finally read all these books this year ^^
I can’t sleep without: A blanket, even during the summer I need to have (a very thin) blanket over me in some way haha.

If you were given 1 million dollars all for yourself what would you do with it? I would travel the world, see all the places I want to visit. Afterwards I would buy (or maybe it still has to be designed & build) my dream house, a car for my boyfriend and myself. I would also invest with a part of the money and I would help my family with things they couldn’t do before. 

Favorite make-up brand? My favorite make-up brand is Maybelline. I love their products a lot and I am very happy with most of the items I buy from them. I also love L’oreal a lot, mostly their lipsticks! Furthermore I really like brands like Dior, YSL and Chanel but I just can’t afford these brands.
Favorite treat to eat? Italian Icecream and Lasagna!! <3 

What is your favorite season? Spring and summer, I love the sunshine, the flowers, the chirping birds, the soft breeze. And besides that I love going to the beach hihi.
Do you sleep with your doors open or closed? Closed, no idea why haha.
Why did you start blogging? I first started blogging in January 2012 but that did not work out very well because I did not have a lot to say and to blog about. Then in January 2013 I started again with pretty much a whole clean slate and I had a topic to write about, fashion. Blogging started as a creative outlet. But besides that also the eager want in me to have my own space whether online or offline to write and share everything I liked or loved.

Do you have any magazine subscriptions? Nope, I love a lot of different magazines like VOGUE, L’Officiel, Elle, Cosmopolitan and much more. Therefore I just regularly check out the new editions in the bookstores and then I buy only the ones I really want to have. The other ones I scan quickly in the bookstore itself hahahaha. 
What were you doing at 12AM last night? Trying to sleep, pretty boring  I guess. Normally I am blogging around that time πŸ˜‰
Favorite perfume? I am in love with my YSL L’elixer fragrance! This is definitely my favorite at the moment I am sure that when this one is empty I am going to buy a new one.

In Amsterdam, Tourist for a day!

Hi all,

Last Wednesday I went to Amsterdam with my family and my love. I really had a nice time in Amsterdam and I seem to be there more and more often every week… During our visit to Amsterdam we went to Madame Tussauds, went on a boat trip and wandered around the Dam, the Westerkerk and besides that also did some windowshopping. 

We ended the day in Rotterdam in definitely my favorite Restaurant Il Carretto with an amazing Lasagna and as dessert the Gran Limone icecream! 

Ofcourse we also made a hell of a lot pictures and I would like to share some of those pictures with you! πŸ™‚ Hope you’ll enjoy!
