My first Blog Award!

 I'm very excited today lovely friends due to many different reasons:
 Firstly my little blog reached 51 followers which in my book makes me famous! (51 people reading your non-sense-blabbering is a big deal!!). 
 Secondly, it's time to do my part of the deal and host my first giveaway! (I've made some nice jewellery for you lovelies and don't forget to check back tomorrow and leave your comment and you just may win them!! I love giveaways!). 
 Then, my first tutorial became a great hit (I was featured in "Βήμα - Βήμα", which is a lovely greek blog full of fun tutorials, thanks to amazing Happy Kathy!) and I've made lots of new, interesting friends!
 And finally, I got my first blog award from the amazing Cammie of "A woman's right to shoes"! (best blog-week ever or what??)

 And although I've always felt deep down inside me that I'm "Irresistibly Sweet" it's pretty awesome that somebody else (who is not a family member I have to point out), thinks so!! So, thank you dear Cammie!! Love ya!
 And now the fun part: I have to share 7 random facts about me and pass the award to 15 more "Irresistibly Sweet" bloggers!!

7 facts about me:

1. I love movies! I blame the fact that I have a vivid, insatiable imagination but there's nothing more relaxing for me than watching a good movie. I've watched tons of movies of all sorts, but I have a sort-term memory and I easily forget about them (especially if they're not good!). I also find myself many times to watch movies only to realize at the very end that I've seen it before, but it was crappy so I forgot all about it!!

2. I dislike manicures. In my scale of time vs. satisfaction, expecting me to keep still for an hour and decorate my nails is a total loss of my time!! I like the outcome, but can't make the effort! I also tend (after I manage to keep still long enough to do the damn nail...) to completely destroy it (by let's say scratching it against the table or something). Then I have to re-do 4 out of 10 nails and wait for them to dry... AGAIN! Do you see my point here?

3. I used to co-host a kid's radio show at the local radio station at the age of 8 (with more 8 year-old kids) . It was called "Good-morning kids!" or something equally imaginative and it was fun!!

4. I decided to study interior design after I suddenly realized one day (I was around 22) that I did not own a single woman's magazine (like normal girls of my age), but I was buying DYI, home-improving, decorating and architectural magazines!

5. I strongly believe that the only way to have a successful relationship (or any relationship at all if you're a bit like me) is to love and respect and fully understand yourself. I know it sounds hard, but if you challenge yourself and set up your boundaries, then you're able to give and receive love, trust, respect and understanding! (even if you and your partner are totally different). Don't you ever, ever, ever tolerate ANY form of abuse...

6. I have huuuge mood-swings! G. says I'm a bit like "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" (especially around those lovely days of the month! Grrrr.....!). In my defense I think everyone is having them, but many people are much better in hiding them... I suck at hiding my feelings (which I don't consider as a disadvantage btw!).

7. One of my favorite secret silly habits is playing a game called "Plants Vs. Zombies"!!! I think it's the best, more clever, well designed game ever!! I'm hooked on playing "Vase-breaker Endless"  which is an extra-game and I've reached level 51!! If you know the game you can see I'm clearly a genius!!

I hope you enjoyed that! And on we go to the list of "Irresistibly Sweet" blogs I'm nominating for the award!! Enjoy!


  1. Αγγλικά ομιλάω και κατανοάω αρκετά. Δεν ξέρω γιατί αλλά βαριέμαι να τα διαβάζω. Δεν παίζει να κάνεις και μετάφραση ταυτόχρονα για να μπορώ να σου υποβάλλω και εγώ τα σέβη μου ως κάφρος ;
    Έχεις άλλο μέλος κάφρο σαν και εμένα στο μπλοκ σου ή μήπως είμαι ο ένας και μοναδικός ;

  2. I can't see you on my followers list... are you sure you've followed me already? :')

  3. Αγαπητέ Πέρη, να τα γράφω σε δύο γλώσσες, όσο και αν αγαπώ τη μητρική μου - βλέπεις ότι είμαι λαλίστατη και μου παίρνει κανά δίωρο το κάθε post - οπότε λέω να το αποφύγω!! Να βάλω γκατζετάκι με μετάφραση στο πλάι, είμαι άσχετη και δεν το βρίσκω! (αν το ξέρει κανείς ας βοηθήσει)! Κάπου είναι ένα google translate που σου βγάζει όλη τη σελίδα, αλλά κι αυτό δε θυμάμαι πού?!
    Κατά τα άλλα τα σέβη τα δέχομαι σε όλες τις γλώσσες (και τα μεταφράζω μετά!) και όχι έχεις τα πρωτεία νομίζω στην καφρίλα!! (αλλά ο παππούς μου έλεγε ότι "Ό,τι έχεις είναι καλό αρκεί να είναι δικό σου!" - Κίσεζ!

  4. Dear Kristina, I'm on to it! Although your lovely blog is already on my bloglovin' list!! (but as an older, wiser woman I have to say that you don't have to worry really! Your blog is delightful - many more will follow you for sure! You'll see!) :) :)

  5. Nice answers. Maybe you could give us a warning when there's a major mood-swing coming!

  6. Θα σου γράψω κι εγώ στα Ελληνικά λοιπόν, έτσι, γι'αλλαγή. Είναι τέλειο που το blog σου μεγαλώνει και απλώνεται! Και καταλαβαίνω κι εγώ τον ενθουσιασμό σου γιατί "'ve been there, 've done that..." :-) Συγχαρητήρια γιατί το αξίζεις και σου εύχομαι πολλούς ακόμα followers και πολλά-πολλά ακόμη βραβεία! Όσο για τα 7 facts about you... "always a new discovery" ;-) Μ'εντυπωσίασες γι'ακόμη μια φορά! :-)

  7. Congratulations on your award, and thank you so much for passing it along to me!

    I never get manicures. I don't like it when strangers touch me. I don't know how well they clean their tools. Some of them don't speak English, and I think they talk about me. I can do my nails just as well as they can do mine, and it's a lot cheaper.
    I have many reasons.

  8. I LOVED this entry. You are so very sweet and irresistibly so. I love that you found my blog and that you started commenting. How else would I have found you? And now I feel like we're friends and that is wonderful.

    I am a big believer in self love too. I think that's the only way to really experience love with another person. Same as you.


  9. Thank you dear Tracy! Finding your blog was really cool and I love it! (I think it was through Shy's blog)! You're a delightful girl and I love your smile and good heart! I feel you're my friend too and I have my bets high that one day you (and Shy!) may come visit!! In my head we're having a great coffee (and lots of conversations)!! :) :)

  10. Congrats on the blog award darling! Hehe I love movies too, guess what I'll be doing tonight ;)

  11. Thank you J.L!!
    Oh, which movie?? Leave a comment with your review please!! Have a lovely day! :)

  12. Hiya sweet Dimi - the award totally suits you and you are very deserving of it. Thanks for giving it to me ... I'll share my 7 things a little later when I'm home ... am having a little tea break here at the office.

    Hope your week has been awesome and that the weekend is filled with loads of fun times and belly laughs ... and as Shy said, let us know when the mood swing will happen (and I agree, most women suffer, they just know how to cover it up better than others)

  13. Thanks dear!!And I can't wait to read your 7 things! Happy tea break! I'm glad you agree! :)

  14. Dimακι μου σ'ευχαριστώωωωωω!!!!

  19. @Cammie - Thank you, thank you! You really made my week (I'm an easy to please person!) and you're so great!

    @Leia - Thanks dear friend! You're the sweetest of sweet and I totally mean that! I hope I gave you a little smile! :)

    @Sick by Trend - Thank you David!! You too! (btw - What to you have to say about the political situation in Spain? Are you at all into the recent events? I'd love to hear some details!)

  20. Congrats on your fantastic blogging week! ;) I'm so proud! I hope you're still doing well. I've been so swamped lately, it's sad. I just haven't been able to catch up this month. :|

    I know what you mean about the manicure thing. I hate doing it but I force myself to do it anyway. I can't do my right hand for shizz, I'm constantly shakey, and I usually end up peeling all the polish off within a day anyway. So what's the point? But still, I carry on...

    I hope your weekend is a good one!
