5 things: welcome Spring!

I have to confess that Winter 2015-2016 was not that bad this year in Spain. I haven’t figured out if it the new apartment’s heating system or that this winter was not as bad as the last one.

Enough said about Winter and let us welcome Spring. First of all I already have my bucket list written down for this season and second of all I am über excited about putting away my coat. There is something magical about taking out clothes I love that I haven’t worn in a while. You have to see me «unpacking» the spring/summer clothing it feels like Christmas all over again… I am like «oh this is cute» and «oh I forgot I had this cool piece here».

My Spring bucket list:

  1. Terrace make-over
  2. Spring cleaning (yup I do look forward to this)
  3. Buying more flowers
  4. Picnic in the park
  5. Spring color nails
  6. Outdoor planting
  7. Donating clothes

As for what has been going on lately, I want to share 5 things that are feeling a lot like…Spring.

1) Light colored nails while writing some new lyrics and adding chapters to my book.

2) I did cut my hair a month ago and it grew so fast. I think I am going to be needing another haircut before Summer.

3) Baking some paleo cinnamon banana-apple pie. I think this will be a good tutorial in the near future for the blog. (Btw: It was so yummy)

Proud of my roots: 6 things I love about being 1/2 Greek

smallindian

When I was a little girl I remember feeling a little ashamed of my Greek second last name «Frangopoulou». You have no idea how many nicknames I got thanks to that.

Today is a whole different story. I love being half Greek and half Italian. It makes me feel special. Thanks to my mom I learned how to speak fluent Greek and I love going to Greece and understanding everything.

Here six things I love about being Greek:

1) The food is spectacular. I love Greek salad and feta cheese is my favorite cheese of all time. Not to mention my mom’s «moussaka» and her amazing easter «chureki».

2) My mom and I speak Greek when we want to say something private so no one will understand. It’s a plus when we do it with a little giggle.

3) I spend most of my Summers in Greece and I have to tell you: make this trip one of your lifetime’s bucket list, you won’t regret it.

4) You get to be a smart-ass when you hear a word that has a Greek root. Remember the movie «My big fat greek wedding»? Remember the bride’s father, how he used to tell people that every-single-word had a Greek root? Well, that’s me most of the time.

5) I just love the smell of Greek coffee.

6) I have a tatoo on my left wrist that says «Pistevo» that means «I believe»

I have to thank Andreas Dermitzakis for this lovely article in the Greek newspaper!
