Ella Got Her Wings!

Hello everyone :)
today's post is dedicated to Ell, our little kitten that since we found her is always on trouble!
Her favorite thing is jumping off balconies and she has become good at this..
So we bought her a pair of wings..
The pink color doesn't really match her personality since she's an independent woman(like her owners) and she is as affectionate as an ox..
No no I'm just kidding, she is affectionate but since she is a little kitten she's full of energy and it's almost impossible for her to stay in one place for long!
Now we can only hope that her new wings will protect her from jumping off balconies again..
Isn't she lovely?

Ice Skating For Beginners

Hello everyone :)
Today it was a lovely sunny day so we decided to go for ice skating (obviously spring it's the best season for ice skating..)

We are not so good at this sport, especially me(actually I'm not good at any sport)
so we were really lucky that none else was there and we avoided the humiliation..
Efi took those photos because she is the only one who we trust to hold the camera on ice!
It's quite socking that every time I forget how cold this place is 
and although I had in mind to put something warm I totally ignored myself..
I also tent to forget all the basic staff about ice skating..
  • wear comfortable and warm clothes(don't forget the socks)
  • bring gloves
  • start slowly and try to maintain your balance by bending your knees.
  • don't look down because you're gonna lose your balance

These are the basic rules I've learned and I should remember next time..
Have you ever been ice skating?
Do you think it's easy?

The Terror Of Capitalism

Hello everyone,
as you may know I'm doing my internship as a journalist and today I had a huge task.
I was responsible for the video editing of the Bangladesh footage..
For more than an hour I had to look at uncut videos of the ruins including dead bodies and people crying or yelling for help.
I started to sweat when I heard people inside the ruins pleading for help.
It has become publicly known that this factory had large  cracks and it was ready to collapse but still the workers were not allowed to leave..
So it's quite obvious that the huge corporations that used those people and treated them worse than slaves have full responsibility for this tragedy since they knew that the building was a ticking bomb!
We pretend that we don't know that slaves still exist, we pretend that we don't hear the voices of the people starving and dying.
Ignoring the problem is not the solution, this monstrosity has to stop now.
Capitalism has won today and has cost the lives of 200 workers but we can still raise our voices against injustice cause everyday is a battle!

Daphne's Birthday!

Hello everyone :)
This was a crazy week.. Yesterday it was Daphne's birthday and we had so many things to prepare!
I baked her a cake and we got prepared for 2 days of celebrating :)
Here are some photos from our first night celebrating.
I'm really sorry for the low quality but we forgot to take a camera with us and the lighting was extremely low.
We were so ready to party!
We all wore high heels and even Efi wore makeup which is a clear sign of a special occasion.
Of course at the end of the night I had an embarrassing moment.
I slipped on the sidewalk and I fell on the ground while I was screaming in a high pitched voice.
It was really funny and it's a shame I don't have a video to show you. I wasn't hurt at all cause I landed safely on my butt..
So now you know why we didn't had any time to post but now we are back on scedule!!

Ella The Supercat

Hello everyone :)
Today I wanna share with you a problem Daphne and I have with our cat Ella..
When Ella was a small kitten she fell down the balcony (4th floor) and just few days ago she fell down the roof(5th floor)
When she was little she had broken her leg but now she is fine, I guess she has found a safer way to land..
But it's really weird and raises many questions how and why she keeps falling??
Is she trying to catch a bird?
Does she have any luck of balance or orientation?
Maybe she just thinks she's some kind of supercat or something..
We are extremely scared that if she had the chance she would jump from an even higher floor!
This cat wants to break the previous score..it's obvious!
So for now she is not allowed to go out, especially without supervision.
 Ella is surunded by people that love her and she doesn't seem worried about leaving the house..she just likes to jump from roofs that's all!
Is there any solution for this problem?
Is there any way we can teach her not to jump from balconies?

Recipe: Pork with red sauce and bell peppers


Today I made this awesome pork dish that's inspired from Pizza. It's actually schnitzel covered with tomato sauce and baked in the oven. It really turned out pretty much Perfect! So, since the original recipe is in Greek I decided to translate for you guys 'cause I feel like more people should know about it.



INGREDIENTS
800 grams of thin slices of veal or other light meat
salt & pepper
oregano
mustard
garlic powder
flour
sliced bell peppers
1/2 cup tomato juice 
1/2 cup concasse





INSTRUCTIONS

1) Wash and dry the pork. Sprinkle the meat with salt pepper and garlic powder. Spread mustard on the pork (both sides)
2) Cover both sides of the pork in flour and place them in an oiled pan

3) In a bowl mix well the tomato juice,concasse, a bit of salt, pepper,oregano and some olive oil
4)Spread the sauce on the meat and add the sliced bell pepper

5) Bake at a preheat over at 180 degrees for about 25 min
Anddd you are done!
Easy right?? This recipe is a great way to make something delicious and different when you are in a hurry


TIP: You can add lots of mozzarella cheese on top of the meat once you have taken it out of the oven, it will add deliciousness!!

Wigs From Aliexpress

Hello everyone!

Lately I've been obsessed with online shopping. Especially after I discovered Aliexpress.
For quite sometime I knew the existence of Alibaba but the site it's too confusing for me and you have to contact the seller in order to buy something etc etc
But Aliexpress is really similar to Ebay only that you can find everything and in a much lower price.
The catch is that you have to work extra hard to find what you are looking for in this site.
For some weird reason all the sellers are doing a horrible job in tagging their products making it difficult for us buyers to find what we are looking for.
For example, I like looking for wigs. All the time. So they usually tag the wig with just "elegant" "brown" "full wig" etc it doesn't matter if the wig is gradient or not, if it's two toned or not or if it has some unique feature you are looking for. They will just name it "pretty women wig" or something and you will have to look through every wig in the site in order to find the one you are looking for. Sometimes Google Image search can help... 

Another thing great about this site is their regular offers. And the free shipping. For anyone outside US free shipping is a miracle and a dream. So it doesn't matter to me if the item will take 1-2 months to arrive, all I need is a tracking number and free shipping and I'm happy.

So in some recent offers I've bought these 2 wigs:
I can't wait for them to get here! And of course review them for you :D

Have you bought anything from Aliexpress yet?

Daphne
