2 Great Photography Books For New Parents

blurpixels photography still life photobooks for new parents

Today I wanted to write about two great photography books for new parents -as I am- that I got a few months ago. When we left the hospital, me & my little one and started creating a new life together at home, I realized that every day will be an adventure for us. Always something new for my little one to discover, to do, to achieve. As for me, I wanted to create a photo journal for him to own. All his beautiful smiles, new moves, plays, fun times with us, food experiences, little moments, all kind of details that gone by so quickly, as he grows so fast. I wanted...

A visit to the 360 bar always makes up your mood. It is all about that incredible Acropolis view, the lovely people, the great music, the delicious cocktails… In the heart of Athens and specifically at Monastiraki square, there is the 360 cocktail bar and it has is all! A beautiful roof garden, very friendly space and wonderful tastes. I personally enjoy a lot visiting roof gardens for a drink or dinner and not necessarily the most popular ones, but the view here wins my heart every single time. 360 offers a reach and tasteful menu either for food or drinks. We ordered the plateaus and a few cocktails and our evening...

New Style Fried Potatoes

Last Saturday, me and my husband, wanted to try a different recipe on a favorite dish of ours. And it was so successful, that we still talk about it. The recipe was simple, beef steaks with fried fries –a perfect dish for a diet, no…?– from the recipe page of Akis. I don`t think I have tasted more delicious fried fries. Ever! The meat was also fantastic but the fries were simply irresistible. Crunchy, well cooked, with a gorgeous golden color. The after-cooking mix was ideal to strengthen their taste, just don`t overdo it with the rosemary, it may be too heavy and a bit annoying. I still wonder how I...

I love Fall. I miss Fall. And it`s finally here. Don`t get me wrong, I love summer and summer in Greece is amazing but enough with that heat, we got plenty of that in the previous months! It`s about time to close the balcony doors, to warm up our home atmosphere, to take care a bit more of our living room space, to decorate our houses with sweet Fall colors, to bake cookies that make the house smell warmth and love, to enjoy hot coffees, light blankets, cauliflower sweaters, (by the way…my little one is so cute with his new long sleeve pajamas), to enjoy all kind of pumpkin recipes. If...
