Cats love Primrose Bakery

Primrose Bakery was also another recommendation by  Anne's Cake Party (aka Anna Tsegeli) and it was a delicious experience. The truth is that this was the third time we visited this bakery and we had the chance to taste different cupcakes. My personal favourite is the toblerone cupcake, but all the cupcakes have an equally delicious taste. The shop is tiny but absolutely cosy and colorfull. It's a great place to eat a tasty cupcake or a slice of a Classic Victoria sandwich and drink an iced cappuccino.  

Also, If you are a baking nerd you will love these books.

Daphne Iliaki for MOHXA

We are so excited that our favourite brand for men's clothes MOHXA, has just released a brand new limited edition collection for women. The brand teamed up with the illustator Daphne Iliaki and the results are at least exotic.

Celebrating Daphne's vision of Mohxa clothing they sew together their mutual love for patterned wear in three garments and a tote bag. The collection is consisted by the original MOHXA lapel shirt for the boys, a dress and a long shirt (the shress) designed by Daphne for the girls.

The collection is available online at store.mohxa.com

A letter to Aggeliki from Athens

Dear Aggeliki,

I received your letter. London looks perfect and i'm really glad that you settled down in your new flat. Summer has officialy arrived in Athens and i couldn't be more excited about that. This means summer cinemas are finally open, inviting you to watch french films out in the open. 

You can literally dance in the streets, welcoming summer in the best possible way.

 It is like you 've fallen down the rabbit hole from Alice in Wonderland,

in a city full of wonders.. and you can't experience a wonder without wearing your favourite shades.

Sometimes you get lost in a little urban jungle labyrinth 

or inside the pages of a book transporting you to 1960s Paris, drinking coffee and playing chess in the bistro where Jean-Paul Sartre used to frequent. 

Always ending up near the coastline, watching the waves cover the sand. 

Looking forward to hearing from you. Lot's of kisses and hugs!

A letter to Georgia from London

Dear Georgia,

It was a really busy month with lots of ups and downs, but here I am in London and I have some photos to share with you from my recent adventures. So after a few recommendations from Anne's cake party (aka Anna Tsegeli) the first thing that I was really craving to taste was the delicious burgers from Honest Burger. They were honest indeed. Also, I have to admit that I'm a bit obsessed with Gingerella. You know me, I love a good old Ginger ale.

Another thing that I had to take care of was the shopping for my new flat. Here is a bright yellow cushion that whenever I see it I feel like it's almost summer, even if here the weather is so poopy.

A few days ago, I bought this lovely book by Mark Haddon. It's a mystery novel like no other. The detective and the narrator is a fifteen years old boy with Asperger's Syndrome. He knows a very great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour's dog murdered he set out on a terrifying journey which will turn his whole world upside down. I love this book, it's great.  

Finally, I'm also a bit obsessed with fresh smoothies with a bunch of different fruits and veggies combined with almond milk. Mmmh yummy!!

That's it for now! Lot's of kisses and hugs!!
