Costa Navarino getaway

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

A weekend of sweet nothingness, buffet dinners and riding golf carts courtesy of L’Oreal Paris and Marie Claire blog awards.
Pure bliss.
For those of you wanting a mediterranean luxury escape , i would suggest Romanos over the Westin, unless you’re bringing young children with you, in which case the Westin, is the ultimate family experience.

Ios pirates weekend

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

Ios island has been my favourite for ever, so when Bianca and Freddie suggested we go for a long weekend in the beginning of July, i packed my new Ben Trill Bikini a couple of tees and some hotpants and i was ready for some long awaited nothingness under the sun.
Long live the Greek summer kids, may this one be the best one yet.

Hydra DESTE opening

by mariaflora in Uncategorized

This year, DESTE’s Project Space at the Slaughterhouse on Hydra island has been taken over by Pawel Althamer until 29th of September.

We were there for the opening night, followed by a dinner , under the stars set for 300 or so guests, a tradition held by our host Mr Dakis Joannou. What a magical night…
It was sooner than later that we ended up dancing the night away at Hydronetta and having to walk barefoot but oh-so-happy back, but hey that’s another magical story ;)

In an homage to the Hydra spirit i wore a crochet skirt by Zeus and Dione, a crochet crop top by a local knitter (Hydra has one the the loveliest crochet shops ive ever visited), a clutch by Thalatta, mules by YSL (those babies are a surprising comeback item from the dark past) cross bracelets and hoops by Folli Follie (Greek summer staple, those), and amongst an assortment of others a current favourite, a moon ring by Efi Armaou.
