It is very rare that i will share any foodie / recipe on this blog. But when i’ll do, trust me, it’s going to be worth it. 
Something you probably won’t know about me, is that i have a huge difficulty eating meat. Not only because i feel bad for the animal itself (although i’ll find it in my heart sometimes to enjoy it) but it’s just feels so difficult to chew. On top of everything i have a bad habit chewing too much, you can just imagine, that for me, meat is an endless meal. 
But what i do love, absolutely go crazy about, is salads! They can even have chicken in, i love them. And most of all the Greek salad. There is no secret or rare ingredient. But when everything is local, you cannot but just adore the smells, flavours and how fresh and healthy it is. 
The recipe is well known, i’m sure. But here’s the way i do it, in case you’re doing something different. 
Put everything together and that’s all. The portion above, is what i would eat for lunch by myself. The bowl, is a big size, salad bowl you guys. That’s how good it is. Give me a sunny day, greek salad and maybe a table by the sea, and i need nothing more! 
Oh and one more thing. My friend Petros is having a wonderful giveaway on his blog, celebrating 1k of Facebook, and he’s giving away a mountain cushion from his new collecting. Head this way to see more! 

I think i couldn’t be more sentimental than i am now. This project, has taken me more time than anything i’ve ever done before. Earlier this week, i mentioned the reasons why i blog.

I think i couldn’t be more sentimental than i am now. This project, has taken me more time than anything i’ve ever done before. Earlier this week, i mentioned the reasons why i blog. Well, this typeface is the result. I wouldn’t have put so much time in it, to learn, design, push myself to the limits (oh you can’t imagine). This feeling right now, is beyond happiness. 
Honestly, i would always complain just a bit on how expensive typefaces can be. I don’t think that’s something i’ll do again soon. Guys, there’s nothing more nerve-racking than creating a font. But also challenged. I’ll probably try again soon. At the moment i’m creating one more (this is an easy one though) for my husband’s new company. And who know maybe something new here soon! 
The font is free to download below. There are still a few things to change here and there, so if you find a bug please let me know in an email, and i’ll be updating the link in the process. Enjoy!

Last week, while i was laying out the week’s posts, i thought how happy that part of the day made me feel. So i wondered, why do i blog? 
I know for fact, that when i started blogging a few years ago, it was just for experiment purposes only. Trying to find myself, my style, connect with people. I kinda failed at that part, since i hadn’t taken myself seriously. Later on, last year on my birthday, i gave it another good shot. From times to times, the reason we blog might change. But it’s always nice to know what it is that makes us feel good. Here are my reasons: 
A lot of freelancers use their blogs as a way to showcase their work and to be known for it. And by all means, i’m the first to shoutout that the blog (at least for me) is the best way of getting known. But other than that, isn’t it just awesome, how a blog of an artist, is a journal of how he has grown and changed. Why do you blog?

This past week, i have been researching for my book about dreams. It’s a big part of the story and i just simply had to learn everything about them and how our beautiful brain works. The part that got my full attention, and the one i’m most focusing on are the recurring dreams. 
For those who don’t know what they are, you can simply read the graphic i made above. I’m pretty sure most of us have experienced them -of course- more than once. Repeating dreams can some times be annoying and maybe meaningless. Mostly, it’s a way of our brain to say, “dude, you’re thinking about this a lot” or you have simply combined the emotions of what you’re dreaming about with an object – symbol. 
I’m not usually the one to believe that dreams have a meaning, for me, it’s just a way of our subconscious to communicate with us, and our brain to unload all the information. When it comes to my subconscious, i know that it’s the one to trust. All my desires, inner thoughts, everything i can’t admit to myself is right there. 
If you would for example dream over and over again about painting, and it felt good. That would simply mean that this is what makes you happy and what you should do in your life. Sometimes recurring dreams are not so simple, and you may need to search for symbols and key people / things. But they do tend to link with extreme emotions, sadness or happiness. So next time you happen to be thinking about something a lot, your subconscious will help you realise exactly how you feel about it.

On Saturday, i received probably the most exciting package ever! Two wonderful pairs of glasses by Rowley Eyewear. And just in time i say, since during the earthquake period i broke my eyeglasses, and till now was walking around with a tape. 
So i’m not going to say just how awesome they are, you can see that on their website, but i’ll mention what an awesome quality they have, something you can’t actually tell from a picture. You can definitely how great they fit on the face. Plus the shapes and colours they come in, they practically make it so difficult for me not to bet another pair or two (in transparent frames).

Now to the rest of it. I’m totally obsessed with heels, jeans and boyfriend tshirts. In any other way, i would feel like i was totally overdressed, but like that, it’s just the perfect combo. Not too casual and definitely not overdressed.

Let’s talk girl problems for a minute. Why do there have to be so many shades? It’s driving me completely crazy. Problem is – i love them all. My weakness about hair is pretty known by now, and my obsession about changing them quite regularly. 
I had decided that i’ve had black way to long now. Transitioned to a bit of ombre, and on my way to blond. But what shade of blonde? They are all so good. California, dirty blond, with highlights? Natural golden blond? White blond? 
So many options, one decision. It’s kinda stupid to be thinking about hair that much. But honestly, that’s my obsession, hair always soothe me, and make me feel good. After all, creative people want to be surrounded by beautiful things, change, comfort and aesthetics right? What do you think? If you could dare, what would you go for?
