Travel diary: Christmas in Elati 2013!

Hello! So I know Greece is most known for its islands but it can also be a great winter destination too. There are so many amazing places to visit! Two years ago we decided to spend Christmas in Elati. Elati is a small village in Trikala and I believe it's named like that because it is full of firs (fir=elato in Greek). I think it's safe to say it was the best Christmas of my life! The place was magical! Every house roof was covered by snow and you could see christmas decorations everywhere. You truly felt the spirit of Christmas!
We stayed in a small and cozy apartment which had an amazing view of the village and it even had its own fireplace! So, when it comes to food I think we overdid it a little bit.. I tried wild boar for the first time and it was so good.. The local food was great in general and the people were so kind and welcoming. We also visited the ski resort in Pertouli but unfortunately we didn't have the chance to ski or surfboard.. Here are some photos of the village and some other places we visited..

Firs! Firs everywhere!

So we stayed three days in the village and the last day we visited the "Grinder of the Elves" (Μύλος Των Ξωτικών) which is the biggest Christmas village in our country. It really felt like we entered a whole new world! There were so many small houses selling every type of candy you can imagine! They even had small houses that were entirely made by chocolate.. For a few hours we felt like being children again.. I highly recommend visiting the Christmas village, it will be such an unforgettable experience!

Om nom nom...

The maxi dress.

Hello again! I bought this dress 2 years ago and I just love the way it hugs my body.. I paired it with sandals and long necklaces for a more bohemian look. I'm all about the details so I also wore a bright pink bra underneath for a pop of colour.

Balmain x H&M favorites!

Balmain x H&M favorites!

The collaboration all fashionistas around the world have been waiting for is here! H&M releases their new collection with the parisian couture house Balmain on 5th November 2015. I'm sure by the time you read that you've probably already seen the powerful ads starring top models Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Jourdan Dunn.
The collection stays true to the Balmain strong feminine silhouette and I'm really impressed by the rich embellishments and the details on the dresses and the blazers.
Here are my top picks:

1. The beaded velvet jacket: We first saw it on Kendall Jenner and it looked so good! I'm amazed by the details on it. Such a statement piece! 
2.The simple tee: A versatile piece with the logo of the iconic brand on it. Chic!
3.The suede thigh-high boots: Paired with the jacket they would make such a powerful combo!
4.The gold embossed ring: I'm into gold toned jewelry and the oversized rings are a favorite of mine!
5.The suede ankle boots: Probably not my cup of tea but they look so rad I couldn't help but feature them!
