Keep Calm & Carry on!

 Hello everybody!! How are you?
Long time, no see!! But then... I do believe that to form a proper "relationship" it takes time and effort! I missed you all terribly, but that was one hell of a month (or two)!

I bought this skirt on discount (10 out of 45 euro) and made myself happy on October!

 And no... you're not seeing weird things - it's winter here in Greece. But since this is a post that basically sums up what I've being doing, I thought I'd add some old pics that never made it to the top! So.... my news:

  • Remember when I quit my job? It was pretty urgent that I should find another one. Bad news - that's not easy lately around here. I got really lucky when I bumped into someone I knew 5 years ago. We used to work together for another employer. The employer was not a good person (trust me). The guy quit and I made the employer fire me (that was a big victory - trust me again)! We appreciated each other because of that. As it turns out, the guy (his name is Panayiotis and I know you're getting confused by now), now runs a company of his own and he hired me!!! YAYAY (I've-got-a-great-job dance).
  • Here comes the hard part: I have to learn this new job (which is completely new to me). I'm a personal assistant to the boss and a security consultant for a big security company that we work with. We install security systems, cameras e.t.c. but our company is also involved with telecommunications and sound systems (I know... too many things to learn)!
Check out my modest bag (gift from my friend Elina)!
  • I had to go through mental tests (thank you friends, family and new boss for believing I'm gonna fail them....) and police check to get my license as a "security consultant".
Good thing I carried another bag at the doctor's office!!
  • I work with the boss and 8 more people. Four of them are girls. Everybody is nice with a good sense of humour and the ladies of the company love my jewellery!! 
  • I've made tons of jewellery that I either gave away or sold and never got any pictures.... (typical me)! Thank you Emma, Maria, Helen and Fofi for giving me your old, boring jewellery and the permission to be creative! 
Through the bathroom mirror: Getting ready for a bachelorette party!
  • I don't have enough time to be creative or blog anymore. I work six days a week and my days are unpredictable... I could work for 6 or 12 hours and I travel quite often! I'm TIRED!
  • I have a flu now (G. has it too) which is a perfect time for BLOGGING! (although I'm feverish and coughing a lot)!
  • I miss your blogs guys.... I'm so sorry I can't leave you a happy comment each and every day... Here is a looooong list of links of the blogs I adore but cannot follow often and you can send the love to each other, right?? 
  • Please give my regards to:



  1. You look really pretty and I like that top and I really love the skirt at the top of the post too. I think Greece sounds so amazing, enjoy your winter there.


  2. Agapi mou, gongratulations with new job!!!
    καλές γιορτές . είθε το 2012 να μας φερθεί καλύτερα.
    είθε ναγαπιεσε πάντα
    φιλιά απ το βορρά : )

  3. Thanks girls!! Demie dear... Καλές γιορτές και με υγεία!

  4. Κοριτσάραααα χαίρομαι που σιγά σιγά μαζευόμαστε χεχε από αύριο κάτι θα ταξιδεύει για να σε βρει φιλάκια πολλά!!! :))))) Χριστουγεννιάτικο δωράκι!!!

  5. Γειάάάά!!! Πού είσαι, κοπελιά! Χρόνια και ζαμάνια! Κατ'αρχάς, συγχαρητήρια για την καινούρια δουλειά. Μικρός που είναι ο κόσμος ρε γαμώτο!!! Πάλι καλά που βρέθηκε μπροστά σου ο Παναγιώτης και βρήκες αυτή τη δουλειά γιατί πλέον το να βρεις δουλειά είναι πιο δύσκολο από το να σκαρφαλώσεις στο Κιλιμάντζαρο. Ακούγεται ενδιαφέρον επάγγελμα πάντως! Ελπίζω να είσαι ευτυχισμένη και να σου αρέσει.
    Κι εγώ άρρωστη είμαι :( Με κόλλησε ο αδερφός μου και τώρα έχω ΕΝΑ συνάχι...τραγικό. Περαστικά μας, μικρόβιο! Από την άλλη, πάλι καλά που κρύωσα και έκατσα σπίτι σήμερα, γιατί δεν την παλεύω με το σχολείο και τα φροντιστήρια. Βαράω υπερωρίες κάθε μέρα, αλλά τέέέλοσπάντων! Ελπίζω να σε δούμε πιο σύντομα, αλλά επειδή ξέρω ότι δεν είναι εύκολο, θα σου πω από τώρα καλές γιορτές με υγεία και ευτυχία, και εύχομαι η νέα χρονιά να σου φέρει ό,τι δεν σου έφερε η προηγούμενη και ακόμα περισσότερα!!! Πολλά φιλιά!!! <3

  6. ΚΑΙ ΕΠΙΣΗΣ (όλα τα είπα, αυτό το ξέχασα), οι φωτογραφίες είναι πάρα πολύ όμορφες! Μια κουκλίτσα είσαι! Και οι τσαντούλες ΤΕΛΕΙΕΣ!

  7. Yay, dimi!! So happy to hear from you!

    And that's great news about the job. In the bad global economy, snagging a good job is a real accomplishment. I hope the work and environment turn out to be pleasant for you.

    One of my client's is a big security-alarm company here so I know a bit about that business.

    I love your maxi dress above. You wear it with panache!

  8. I knew you were busy with your job, but I didn't know it was 6 days a week! Wow. I hope you get a little time off for the holidays. :)

    Get better soon!


  9. Glad you got a new job Dimi!
    Να σαι καλά και καλές γιορτές

  10. Εξαφανιζόλ εσύ ; Που χάθηκες ; Παντρεύτηκες ;

  11. @Neraiditsa - Ευχαριστώ κούκλα! Περιμένω με αγωνία... και φυσικά θα το δεις όταν το πάρω!

    @Demy - Γεια σου μικρή της παρέας!! Σε σκεφτόμουν είναι η αλήθεια! Περαστικά σου σύντομα (και στον αδερφό), αν και καταλαβαίνω τι εννοείς - κι εγώ ξεκουράστηκα τώρα που αρρώστησα! Καλές γιορτές και σε σένα και ό,τι επιθυμείς! Την υγειά μας πάνω απ' όλα! Φιλάκια :)

    @Shybiker - Thanks Ally! I miss you guys... I hope so too (and it is so far), because the salaries suck big time in this country and they keep dropping! I like that dress too! (hence the panache)!! Love ya!

    @Jenn - Yeah... And you wouldn't believe what a big difference this one day makes! No time off during Christmas, but I got 3 days because of the flu! (lying down and coughing... but still). Kisses girl!

    @S.A. - Thanks Sass! Glad to see you!! Καλές γιορτές και σε σένα κούκλα!

    @Perinio - Πού είσαι βρε Πέρη? Άστα... μπίζνες!! (Ζήτω η ανάπτυξη!). Όχι ακόμα... κυκλοφορώ ελεύθερη ανάμεσά σας! (για λίγο). Σπεύδω να χορτάσω τα υπέροχα φωτισμένα άρθρα που θα έχεις γράψει και έχασα!!

  12. I love you and miss you terribly. What an amazing adventure you've been on. It sounds very exciting. I'm so happy for you.

    Email me anytime honey.


  13. Yay ya ya for you! I hope you're feeling better now too.

    The job opp sounds great and you sound happy in it! You're so young, learning will come easily to you... I look back on a difficult job i took on which I didn't know much about and it was scarrrryyyyy! Plus bloody hard work too, but when you're young it doesn't matter, least you have a job!

    Merry Christmas my little darling... I'm working flat out till next yr! So Xronia polla!

  14. No worries, Dimi! I'm glad to see you post and that you were able to find a job! I'm very happy for you and know you will do well.Your outfit photos look great! I especially like you t-shirt in the second photo and your gifted bag is beautiful.
    I hope you get well soon! Even if you are unable to leave comments on the blog, please feel free to stop by anyway. :)

  15. Thanks girls!! Many Wishes for the Holiday Season!

  16. I've missed your updates! It's so nice to hear from you and I'm really happy to hear about your job. I hope you feel better soon!


  17. Me too dear! I miss the days when I had all the time in the world to spend in blog-reading! I loved reading about everybody's news and outfits and I miss it terribly... Your wedding was one of the hot-topics of the year! It's delightful to see you so happy!! I'll try to post as often as I can from now on! Kisses and Christmas wishes!!

  18. Dimi, great to hear from you. And I'm so happy that the reason you've been missing is an awesome new job! Congratulations!!!!! Happy New Year, dear!

  19. The good news είναι ότι έχεις δουλειά γιατί πλέον όποιος έχει θεωρείται προνομιούχος! Τουλάχιστον είσαι ευχαριστημένη αλλά η κούραση, όπως και να το κάνεις είναι δεδομένη. Ελπίζω αυτή η νέα χρονιά που ξεκίνησε να σου φέρει ότι καλύτερο, υγεία, ευτυχία, πολλή αγάπη, λεφτά (βασικό στις μέρες μας) και τι δυνατότητα να ξεφεύγεις πού και πού και να ξεκουράζεσαι. Φιλιά πολλά! :-)

  20. hey! congrats on the new job... that's really awesome how that worked out... it's tough to find a job everywhere it seems! Also, does your bag really say "God Bless Blow Jobs"?! you are one quirky little mama :) anyway, I've missed you!

  21. Thanks Anzouya! Right back at you!

    @ALEX - OMG! You're alive! Happy New Year girl! Yes it does...! It's a gift from my friend Elina and designed by a greek graphic designer! We have a strange sense of humor around here... I missed you too dear!

  22. Είσαι η πιο σέξυ "γεματούλα" των μπλογκερς!
    Κάνε κράτη όμως φέτος με τη γαλοπούλα Ντιμάκι!

  23. Ω μερσί.. αν και εφέτος στο πνεύμα της κρίσης ομολογώ πως αδυνάτισα κάμποσο - γαλοπούλα θα έχουμε όμως? Καλές γιορτές!
