Vacations at the beautiful Rhodes island

Hello everyone! Today I'd like to share with you some photos of my recent trip to Rhodes. Rhodes is a one of the largest Greek islands and is located at eastern Aegean Sea. We stayed at the city of Rhodes where the Medieval Old Town is located which is a declared world heritage site. Prior to my vacation me and Gracie sew several two-piece dresses so I had a whole new wardrobe with me. 
The first one is this cute vintage-printed dress. I really really love the print. It is one of the fabrics I wanted to sew in a long time and I'm happy that I finally did. It makes me really sad having unused cute fabric. 
Our hotel was near the "Elli" beach so I was able to enjoy swimming every day. Most beaches in Rhodes have sunbeds that you have to pay but you can also just place your towel and your own umbrella wherever you want. I try to avoid the sun as much as possible so I usually have my own just in case a beach isn't organised.

Rhodes is such a huge city and attracts tourists all year round. I have visited the island before in winter but honestly its so much more beautiful in the summer. 
Have you visited Rhodes or any other Greek island? Which one was your favourite?

Life Changes

Hello everyone. These days I am super excited yet really anxious about my future. As you may know me and Daphne were looking masters programs in the UK and we finally decided were we wanna go. The fact is that we are gonna drastically change our lives.
I am thinking over and over that this is just a small step and I try to convince myself that I am not anxious but now that the summer is almost over the dramatic voice inside me hopes I had more time.I wish I had the chance to talk to the future me just to reassure me that everything is gonna be ok.  I am not sure what is the point of this post since I can explain if I am afraid of leaving or I am anxious about the unknown. I am a shy person and I was never too social, I kinda hate being thrown in a new environment. On the other hand I wanna meet new people and start a new life as a real adult.I guess that I am really confused right because I bet I am coming across like an extremely scared person, this is far from the truth. Wow as I am writing this text I see how I contradict myself. I guess I am done with thinking for the day.

Pink Heart Handmade Two Piece Dress

Hello everyone :) Today was a cloudy day in Athens and it was such a relief cause I can't stand the hot sun forever. I try not to get a tan this year so I am using a ton of bronzer.
So today I decided to wear my new two piece dress. Me and Daphne were sewing day and night last week and finished many dresses. Fortunately we have endless fabric to sew till death do us party. This is the first dress I finished last week and it's one of my favorite! Daphne sewed 5 or 6 dresses, she was on fire. I can't compete with her skills. I am slow dressmaker like a sloth but my last creations are more professional looking and I made less mistakes. 
I also did my make up in a drag queen style. My inspiration was a mix of  Adore Delano and Roxxxy Andrews. I know that the make up seems conservative in the photos but it's really heavy.
I wish you have an awesome day!

Playing with cute cats

Hello everyone! Now that the weather is super hot we don't dare to go out  for long so we are going from house to house. This Saturday we were at Efi's house and we were playing with her cats. She has a wonderful garden and her cats are enjoying so much to play in the dirt.
Here you can see sir Meowlis looking like an aristocratic cat. He is so huge and cute. He is not fat but he has an enormous body. He is also terribly kind and although he doesn't like to have his pictures taken he poses tentatively.
 He is the most calm cat I have ever seen. He wants to be pet all the time, sometimes he is a little winy when we cook cause he is hungry 24/7!
In the picture above you can see Satanitsa. She is truly a little devil! She likes to get dirty that's why she is always rolling around in the garden.She extremely playful and sometimes we hug and pet her but if she's not enjoying it she will show it right away with her claws. Apart from that she is friendly and she hangs out with Meowlis everyday, they bath together and the sleep together!
 Satanitsa was so little when we first found her! She was begging for food and seeking hugs from strangers. Now she is a lady and she owns her own garden.
The two cats are living harmonically together for over a year now. They are both neutered so they are close friends.
 I love it when Meowlis is doing that pose! He is the cutest! :)
Have a nice week!

Throwback Thursday #9

Hello everyone :) These days I've been missing my shorter hair. I don't dare to cut them again but I miss my old bangs. I was feeling retro and cute.
Now I let my hair grow mainly because I haven't decided if I want to keep this color. Maybe I will bleach my roots or maybe I will dye them dark brown..

Rupaul's Drag Race Controversy

Hello everyone, these hot summer days all I wanna do is drink cold tea and watch Rupaul's Drag Race over and over again. I know that this show is really popular in U.S. but in Greece not many people can recognise Rupaul. That feeling of expressing yourself in every possible way even bending stereotypical gender rules seems extremely liberating. Drag performances are funny and entertaining thus I don't see the reason why someone can't enjoy the show. Unfortunately there are people who feel offended when they see Rupaul.I love it when it happens, I love the way boys can't explain what is so offending about it and they just claim that the show doesn't match with their aesthetic, as if their camouflage pants and the stained tank tops are avant-garde of aesthetic that can't be compromised.

 Last week I showed the video "Sissy that Walk" to a guy and when he realised that Rupaul was a man he started shaking, he asked me multiple times why I showed him that video, I calmly answered that since he was playing some music I wanted to show him a song that I liked. He didn't liked that explanation, he was red as a baboon's arse and thought that I implied he was gay. What is wrong with straight boys? Why they always feel the need to declare their sexuality and get offended if someone else is gay? Maybe they are afraid that the sexual orientation can be contagious and if they turn gay they will be really sick. Well it's kind of disturbing trying to explain to a straight guys that there is nothing wrong with the drag queens but it is always hilarious seeing them getting furious. The last this guy told me is that if  he hears this song again he will shoot himself... well I am always here to help.

A date with Sir Miaoulis the Cat

Hello everyone! Yesterday we went to Efi's house which is always great since it has plenty of food and cats. I usually bring Ella along since she adores Efi's male cat Miaoulis (who doesn't). When I got back home she kept sniffing and licking my hands. So today I'll present you Miaoulis the sleep master himself.This photo shows exactly how perfect Miaoulis is. Look at that belly and that face of disapproval. That is his regular face. So cute! "Leave me alone human I'm sleepy/hungry".
He is such a handsome cat. Here he is looking away wondering when is he getting fed as a reward for this photo shoot. I'm so used to the small size of Ella that this cat seems huge to me. Holding him up is not easy either.
His talent is sleeping. I mean we were sitting in Efi's kitchen and I jokingly asked Gracie if Miaoulis is dead since he was sleeping so much. She started shaking him and shaking him, we could see he was breathing but was not opening his eyes! I thought he was in a comma. But no, he finally opened his eyes looked at our panicked faces with annoyance and went to sleep on another chair. Such are the hardships of Mr. Miaoulis life.
