haul

Obviously, the best period to shop is sales, so I couldn't resist and bought a few things I wanted to add to my closet and a knowledge book I have been looking for a very long time. Also, I've decided to shop winter/fall clothes on sales even though here in Greece sales start when fall ends, because it is more economical, makes more sense to me to wait and buy something I want half price and because I do not really "follow" fashion trends. So even if the pieces that are on sale won't be "in fashion" next year it doesn't really matter to me because I just buy whatever I like and suits my style.

inspiration, tattoos


Tattoos have always fascinated me but I am a person who likes changes so if I were to get a tattoo it would be a small one and in an area that would not be visible, at least, to me. If you are considering getting inked but would rather get a small tattoo than a complicated & huge one continue reading. There are a plethora of spots on your body that would look fantastic with a microscopic but still meaningful tattoo. Here are some ideas that might help you decide:



1. Behind The Ear


This area seems to be the best choice for a long-haired girl that doesn't want it to be visible. It also makes it easier if your workplace does not allow body modifications because you can easily hide it. In my opinion, the most suitable tattoo for this spot is a music symbol.


2. Wrist


Tattoos on the wrists are the most common ones. It is a small & visible spot; great for tiny and cute symbols or words. In case you do not want it to be seen you could always cover it with bracelets.


3. The Side of The Finger


Obviously, if you consider getting a tattoo on your finger it's going to be tiny and fade away quicker than on another part of your body. Despite that, finger tattoos look classy, elegant & cute.


4. Nape


The back of your neck is a great spot for a small or medium sized tattoo. It can be hidden having your hair down or displayed with a ponytail. If you ask me a phrase would be perfect for that spot.


5. Collarbone


Last but not least the collarbone is favorite areas on a woman's body. It is an elegant, feminine spot & amazing for a variety of tattoos whether they are lyrics or lines or symbols. If you love your collarbones like me it is a great way to draw attention to them.




These are some of the most common & my personal favourite spots to get your tattoo done. Of course the spots on our body are limitless, but whatever spot you choose make sure that the tattoo you are getting conveys a meaningful message. At least to me that's what tattoes are for; scars that remind me of things that I love and that is why I haven't got a tattoo yet, because the things I love are unlimited.


Have fun getting inked! Tell me in the comments below on what spot of your body would you have your tattoo done.

quotes


When I feel like I'm lost and forget my purpose, the core of my life I find quotes that inspire me relaxing,empowering and a reminder of who I am, who I want to be and what I want to do with my life. Roller coasters come and go. Turn up the music and do something that amuses you. Be creative and surround yourself with people who believe in you & support you; remember that they are your number one source of strength after yourself.



Magic lives within you always keep that in mind.

Austria, travel


Hello everyone! I hope you've all had a blast this Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year! 2016 was kind of harsh for me and as I've seen for most people. Nevertheless, last year I had some good & unforgettable moments too. Lots of them took place at the end of that year in Austria. I have to admit that this trip which lasted for only 4 days gave me the chance to return home more open-minded,tolerant & accepting. I learned few awesome facts about Austria and its history, found out another facet of my traveling buddy's personality; a friend of mine who I have known for more than 2 years and was taught that sometimes friends might need you to be confident for them as stupid as it may sounds. I found a piece of myself in Austria and I I feel the need to find the rest of them in other places. I guess that means more travelling for me. I want to visit places and meet new people,idiosyncrasies, learn new languages, other cultures,religions and enrich my mind with experiences.



This is the view of Vienna from the top of the Giant Ferris Wheel, one of Vienna’s most famous symbols. The wheel as well as the museum "Madame Tussauds" are located in Prater also called Wurstelprater, an amusement park for many, a place taken out of a fairy tale for me.



Cheers! While me & my friend were in Vienna we went to Palais Auersperg and watched a concert. The orchestra played pieces from Mozart to Johann Strauss. The building is like a palace and makes you feel special, as though you belong to the royal family and this is a typical Friday night when you go to watch the best orchestra in the kingdom perform only for your eyes to watch and your ears to listen.



"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."

Albert Einstein

Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known as "Sisi". Such beauty.


Baden! And yes everyday I would eat pizza. There was literally no time for us to go to a restaurant and eat, so we would grab a piece of pizza to satisfy our hunger. The only time we sat at a restaurant to eat was in Saltzburg and guess what....we ate pizza.


Besides Vienna we also visited St. Gilgen.

And of course Saltzburg. A dreamy place. A traditional place full of stories & memories.


I had an amazing time in Austria. And I do not regret this trip a bit. In fact, I'm planning to visit Austria again, because there are so many places I want to see again and much more I haven't seen at all. I highly recommend you visiting this heavenly & magical country. Next stop: Who knows!

Christmas, travel, Bulgaria


Last Christmas I visited Bulgaria. An underestimated country which holds a haunting beauty. I specifically went to Sofia and Borovets, I have also visited Bansko in the past. I have to say that Borovets is by far my favourite because of its forest and the skiing resort. I wish I had stayed a little bit longer and had more time to observe,feel & enjoy this place. Nevertheless I had a blast with my family in Bulgaria those four days. Here are some photos I took while I was there.



These pictures where took in Sofia. I have a lot more but I already uploaded too many in this post. So, if you wish to see more just visit my flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/103004439@N08/ or my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/erawtos/


The rest are from Borovets. Fell in love with this place!

And there's my mom down in the right corner hah

This lake looked like it had escaped from a fairy tale as well as the whole forest.

Our view from the resort in Borovets.

Hey sister! 

Wish I could live in here!


This is the view from the hall in the second floor of the apartment we stayed at. Loved it. If you would like to see the whole apartment and you're interested in visiting comment down below. ♥


Next stop: Vienna, Austria!!!

music, Christmas


Hello December! Christmas is near, my favorite time of the year. All the shops are decorated and I'm starting to get myself in the mood by lighting candles, lighting up the fireplace and listening to Christmas songs. From my perspective, there is nothing that can offer you the warm and coziness that Christmas Time provides you with. “Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder . In my family we actually have a Christmas-time-tradition; to gather one Christmas night, light up the fireplace, drink hot chocolate, eat and watch old videos of when me and my siblings were younger. Here is my Christmas playlist:

Enjoy the music!

fireplace, reading


What is a better way to read than sit in front of the fireplace in your pajamas? For me there's no better way. That's why yesterday I lit the fireplace , sat in the most comfortable neoclassic armchair in the house and read the "The Glass Menagerie", a memory play. A great piece of art written by Tennessee Williams and narrated by Tom, my favorite character; an inquiring mind that yearns for adventures.

Heres's my favorite quote of Tom in the play:

“Yes, movies! Look at them — All of those glamorous people — having adventures — hogging it all, gobbling the whole thing up! You know what happens? People go to the movies instead of moving! Hollywood characters are supposed to have all the adventures for everybody in America, while everybody in America sits in a dark room and watches them have them! Yes, until there's a war. That's when adventure becomes available to the masses! Everyone's dish, not only Gable's! Then the people in the dark room come out of the dark room to have some adventures themselves — Goody, goody! — It's our turn now, to go to the south Sea Island — to make a safari — to be exotic, far-off! — But I'm not patient. I don't want to wait till then. I'm tired of the movies and I am about to move!”

― Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie
