Some insight…

I’m 42 years old, Greek and currently live/work back home (after spending about 7 years in Brussels and, probably, before I move… again). I love movies and the cinema, having dinner with friends (and good wine), discovering exciting new books & music, shopping, traveling (which I just don’t do enough of) and just pure lounging about. I also love running and photography – which has been kind of a long -but not lost- dream. I have been vegetarian for about 7 years now and am also quite into animal rights, environmental issues etc.

  • Favorite Movies: Most everything by A. Hitchcock and Woody Allen, romantic comedies, mysteries, horror/ thrillers, anything by Tim Burton and animated films (Disney, Pixar etc.).
  • Favorite TV Series: Greys Anatomy, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory, Orange is the New Black, Love, Reign, Riverdale, Stranger Things, House of Cards, How to Get Away with Murder, iZombie, American Horror Story, Modern Family, Elementary, Once Upon a Time.
  • Favorite Books: Way too many to mention.
  • Favorite Music: Anything & everything (as long as it’s not extreme folk or hardcore metal).
  • If I could meet anyone, alive/dead/real or fictional: It would have to be (short & VERY random selection here):

Audrey Hepburn (to get style tips), Marilyn Monroe (to meet the icon), Woody Allen (’cause just looking at him makes me laugh + he plays the Sax, man), Jim Morrison (for the sex, drugs and rock n’roll angle), Angelina Jolie (’cause she’s the one woman I’d go for), Sean Connery (’cause he’s like good old wine), Muhammad Ali (’cause he flew like a butterfly and stung like a bee), Alfred Hitchcock (’cause he was THE master), Elizabeth Taylor (for her fighting spirit), Jacques-Yves Cousteau (for all the amazing sea stories), Maria Callas (’cause there never will be another Greek like her), Steven Hawking (for his intellect & brilliant sense of humour), Grace Kelly (just because she was purrrrfect!), Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, Shirley MacLaine, Walter Matthau, Billy Wilder & Blake Edwards (to talk old movies with) and finally James Franco/ Alexander Skarsgård/ Hugh Jackman (to fulfill the night’s eye- candy quota!)

    You’re Greek! Blame it on the Greeks happily feeding me here, but everytime I hear the word Greek I automatically envision honeyed breads. I tell you, you Greeks make the best bread in this whole wide universe! So powerful that it can’t match…when people say “Italian!” I don’t envision pasta, why is that?

    I seem to like talking about food huh? Haha!

  2. Greece? Jealous. Much cooler than the USA.
    Love The Girls’ Guide to Hunting & Fishing. One of my favorite books!!!

  3. Hi! Thanks a million for the award (& for enjoying Lifestyle Counter). Queuing a post for publishing as we speak 😉 XOXO

  5. Hey Polly!

    Again, thanks a mill for loving LC! Keep safe and in touch, XOXO

  6. Wow! Never met a Greek before in the time I’ve been traveling around the world. I’m a big fan of good movies and cinema too. my fav drama, romance and horror.
    I’ve tried Greek food (or mediterranean, I don’t know if it is the same) in many opportunities and i really enjoyed it!
    I have a crazy thought of getting married there because of the tradition and the beauty of the country. I highly recommend you to visit Australia when you get a chance. I’m sure you would love it. Hope I can get some free time to start reading your blog!

  7. Thanks for taking the time to comment! I suppose Greek and Mediterranean food have a lot of similarities. If you ever want to make/try something traditionally Greek though, do let me know. I’ll be happy to oblige 🙂

    Hope you enjoy Lifestyle Counter. Be safe and keep in touch… XOXO

  8. I found myself paging through your blog and it feels like my own, we love the same things, fashion, cooking/food, movies, travel:)))
    I’ve been to Greece two years ago and loved it:)
    You seem to be a great person and I do love your blog, so I’ll be back:)

  9. Hello and welcome! So glad you enjoy Lifestyle Counter. Look forward to hearing from you again (& checking out future posts on the Red Page…) XOXO

  10. Just found your blog…I am excited to get in and read more. My daughter spent a summer in Greece and absolutely fell in love with it, the food, the culture, the people! I would love to visit myself someday! Looking forward to your blog.

  11. Hello and welcome! Thanks for taking the time to drop me a line – and sorry it took me so long to get back to you… So glad to hear your daughter enjoyed her time in Greece – hope you get a chance to visit too, someday. I’m sure you’ll love it 😉 Stay safe and keep in touch, XOXO
