Have an Egg-citing Easter weekend at Jurassic Kingdom!

 If you’re not planning to stay inside gorging on meat all weekend like some of us, you may be trying to think up ways to entertain your little ones over the Easter period. I did a bit of research prior to my son’s 2nd birthday and found so many special events…

A Night with Hypnos: The God of Sleep

Ah Hypnos, the God of Sleep. What a great guy. So calming, so gentle, and so very very dreamy. Unfortunately these days I rarely get to spend a night with Hypnos. Instead, my two little monkeys have invited Chaos to join us and poor Hypnos has been banished to the Underworld.

Book Review! Evanthia’s Gift by Effie Kammenou

I read a lot of books that are either based in Greece/Cyprus or feature Greek characters and I must admit that sometimes I can become disinterested with the Big Fat Greek Wedding type similarities and mechanical descriptions of the Greek landscape. Not so with my latest read EVANTHIA’S GIFT by the…

Do you believe in Santa?

I just wanted to write a quick blogmas post today to address the topic of the big guy in red. No I’m not talking about Papou in his festive pyjamas, I’m talking about SANTA CLAUS! I had a magical childhood and Christmas is at the forefront of my most magical memories. Each December…

Relax with Adult Colouring

Before you ask, NO, ‘Adult Colouring’ (with a ‘u‘!!!) does not involve a pencil outline of Kate Winslet lying on a chaise longue and some flesh-coloured crayons. There is nothing X-rated about the latest trend in relaxation techniques. In fact the most erotic aspect (if you are that way inclined) is…

Book Review! A Guide To Becoming A Film & TV Extra by The SA’s

No this is not a book by the SAS. It is by the SA’s! SA stands for ‘supporting artist‘ or in this case ‘sexy artist‘ as the authors like to be known. I used to be a sexy…er…I mean…supporting artist. Before I moved up to ‘lead artist‘. Then I never…

Can you be a top model AND a serious actor?

Cara Delevingne is literally everywhere these days. And I mean EVERYWHERE. On the catwalk, in magazines, TV adverts, music and now, the silver screen. In 2012 the ubiquitous model had a small part in Anna Karenina as Princess Sorokina, the marriage interest of Count Vronsky. This year she is set to…

A Christmas Waltz with Edward Scissorhands

Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands, has long been one of my favourite films, and no…not just because of Johnny Depp (although obviously he had a LOT to do with it). Aside from the heart wrenching storyline, Danny Elfman’s beautifully haunting soundtrack captivated me even as a child and I still can’t watch…

Smashing more than plates with WWE

The months running up to Christmas can be a hectic time so what better way to relax and escape from the manic day-to-day shenanigans than to go and see a wrestling match! Instead of my usual ballet/musical theatre trip, this week I nabbed tickets for my Greek man and I…

Summer Kindle Reading List

So you’ve waxed your legs (or chest), treated yourself to a manicure, dolled out the euros/dollars/etc, and packed the suitcase. Now all that remains is the most important task of all: Downloading a whole new set of books onto your kindle. While I still prefer a nice, clean-smelling paperback, I…
