One of the best ways to say good morning is…to make breakfast to your loved one, right?? So, since I’ve been crashing at my friends place these last couple of weeks, I thought it would be a good idea to surprise her and her boyfriend with pancakes yesterday morning! You know, as a yummy thank you for letting me stay at her house 🙂
Happy spring season everyone!
Although the weather here in Greece is extremely summery, it is spring time finally, hooray!
I’m not quite sure if I’m totally ready to get rid of my knitwear and ankle boots yet, but i sure love the fact that the sun is up all day long and yaaaay the day is longer finally. I even gave myself a little break from work today and went to the beach to let Booky run and play. Oh boy, she makes me happy!!
Anyway, in order to celebrate spring to the fullest I decided to offer a discount coupon on etsy, for the rest of the month! So if any of you or your friends wants to purchase a necklace from myLifebox shop on Etsy, now is the right time 🙂 You will receive a 25% discount on every order only by entering the code “HELLOSPRING25” at the check out. So hurry up guys 😉
I searched over the internet to find a nice recipe to follow and I think I actually found the best one. But since I’m always some kind of a rebel when it comes to cooking I didn’t follow the instructions per se. The pancakes turned out really fluffy and delicious, so if you are a pancake kind of person write this one down, you will love it!! (recipe adapted from here with a few changes)

1 1/2 cup of milk

Besides that lately my favorite color is pink (that’s new, right?), there are a few more changes in my life that I haven’t talked about yet and I was really looking forward to the day I’d find some time to write a post about them. I know I have been completely absent for more than a month but things have been hectic and I decided it would be just better to deal with one thing at a time and stop trying to be a super woman.
As some of you may know, I have been studying architecture for the past 5 years of my life in Chania, Greece. Studying architecture can be very time consuming and demanding and right now I’m in a place where it couldn’t be more of these. Writing a research thesis and conduct a design thesis are the most important and difficult things one has to do in order to graduate. And now I ‘m doing exactly that.
In addition to that, me and my family decided that there was no point in keeping my apartment in Chania, since I do have a lovely apartment in Athens waiting for me. Therefore I left (or at least my stuff did) Chania and moved to Athens. But since I still have things I’m working on in Chania, I’m currently crashing at a friend’s place, which, although she is lovely and I really have a great time with her, is a bit new to me!
So, trying to write my thesis coupled with me moving out of my 5-year beloved apartment just drove me nuts during this last month.
That being said, I’m really sorry in advance that I’m not and won’t be much around. Considering my blog is most about DIYs and recipes, which need some kind of space to be done and photographed, I hardly can imagine to post in regular basis soon again. But, I’m planning on a couple of posts that don’t need that kind of space flexibility when I find time again!
However, I truly love this blog and I cannot imagine my life without it. Maybe I’ll need some extra time to catch up with you and your lovely blogs guys but I’m sure I’ll make it at the end. Thanks a lot for understanding and I really want you to know that I miss you 🙂
