What's Coming to Netflix this November (2020) along with the second lockdown in Greece as well as in many other European (and not only European) countries?

Test and review: Bioten Tissue Mask Hyaluronic

This morning I decided to try the Bioten face mask (Tissue Mask Hyaluronic) on a clean face to see what effect it will have on my skin. According to the promotional message of the Bioten company this Hyaluronic Tissue Mask (with Hyaluronic acid) is the perfect solution for a dehydrated and dull skin. The face mask offers effective hydration, while fine lines appear smoother after use. Is this Hyaluronic face mask delivers its promises? Given its special price (in the Greek market you can find it from €1.30/face mask) I thought I had to test it out and write my review, so in case you need this, you could buy it too.

If you are here reading me it’s not because it was meant to be.

Renew Acropolis Symbolism

The Onassis Foundation improves the Acropolis infrastructures!
Antonis Papadimitriou - the president of the Onassis Foundation in Athens Greece - after his meeting with the Greek prime minister offered him the Foundation’s contribution on upgrading the infrastructure on the Hill of the Acropolis. More detailed they have decided to fund the installation of a modern platform lift (in place of the current lift and hoist), as well as the renovation and upgrading of the night illumination of the archaeological site.
Everything is an issue of education. The Acropolis, as a monument that expresses Athenian Democracy, cannot help but comprise a priority. The monument continues to stand there, with or without us. But we have an obligation to renew its symbolism, according to the needs of the age...

Day one for the Authentic Big Blue 2019

Hold your breath, dive into the big blue!

✍️ In autumn of 2017 we “revived” the legendary film “LE GRAND BLEU” (“THE BIG BLUE”) by organizing, in Amorgos, a unique event; an international free-diving tournament, the Authentic Big Blue; at the location where the most memorable scenes of the film were shot, scenes that created unique feelings.
The second ABB tournament was organized in September 2018 and it was an anniversary event since it was 30 years after the release of “Le Grand Bleu“ film.
The 3rd event will be held from today; 22 – 28 of September 2019 and will be focused on the divers who honor us with their presence every year. Inspired by the magical blue, with the aura of the island and the unique awe-inspiring landscape on our side; this year we create a special, sporting and tourist experience.

“The light blue shirt, sometimes I wore it and sometimes you wore it.”

“The light blue shirt, you never wore it again.”
And if so, why?
Today's photography may not represent your favorite style, but because the blue or the light blue color this year is in fashion (and every year it's style is in fashion to such an era that aries Spring), I have a simple, everyday suggestion for your to wear on your morning walks in the city's center.

My review on the Ciccus bar where earlier today I've enjoyed my first coffee of the day. Located to the Monastiraki area in the center of Athens, this cafe bar is quite close to the archaeological sites of Stoa of Attalos and Temple of Hephaestus so Ciccus is a really nice place to stop by while you are in the neighborhood.

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves ... and when one of them meets the other half, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other's sight...”
