5 Home Made Face Scrubs

  Now is the time when we have time to take care of ourselves at home.  The simplest is to make it with natural ingredients that we find in any kitchen. When I was a kid I always saw my mother putting on her face mask with what I had in the kitchen and I didn't understand why she was doing it, so now I have come to understand her.  First of all, it is easier to use what you have at hand, secondly if you do it you know for sure what it contains (there are far too many chemicals on the market and you do not know what to trust anymore), in  thirdly it comes from natural ingredients and it doesn't cost you anything (because you already had them in the house).  I say you only have to win. I will tell you some scrub recipes for face and how to prepare our skin when we want to exfoliate. First of all, the skin must be clean.  I mean, they don't have to have make-up or cream on it. Once we have done well, we can proceed to the next step. The skin should be exposed to steam to open the pores, you can take a hot bath, apply a towel soaked in warm water on the face or you can steam on top of a bowl of hot chamomile tea.  If you opt for the latest version it is good to put on a towel for a stronger effect.  After 10 minutes of...

Cyprus or “Aphrodite’s Island”

Cyprus or "Aphrodite's Island", Greek mythology claims that this is the place where the goddess was born. I don't like the cold weather at all.  I mean I support it during the winter holidays, for a trip to the mountain and a sky session, but otherwise, I love the heat.  So, in winter, if you want to take an accessible break from the cold, Cyprus is a very good idea.  We were in Larnaca in the middle of January.  We had temperatures around 16-18 degrees and sun (but also clouds).  It wasn't beach time, but we took our vitamin D needs. I didn't go for the holiday, I had a tour with a show, but everything was so beautiful that I felt exactly as I was on vacation.  It's great to combine the job with pleasure. I think it is an ideal destination for relaxation, that is, it is best to go when the temperatures allow you to take a beach and swim in the sea.  There are not many to visit, so it is best to go and relax in the sun. Between the rehearsals and the show, here's what we managed to explore: The main beach named Finikoudes Beach. The cliff of this beach is full of restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy delicious food and admire the sea.  The prices are very affordable.   At the southern end of Finikoudes beach is the Medieval Fort. It houses a small Museum of the Middle Ages, which exhibits some collections...

Meteora, Greece! Suspended in the air!

This week we are thinking about Meteora, Greece. What place! What a marvel of nature! It leaves you breathless, opens your thoughts and fills your soul with positive energy and light. This year we chose Greece again as a holiday destination and decided to stop at this legendary place. Meteora (Greek Μετέωρα, ad literally "the middle of the sky", "suspended in the air" or "up in the sky" - etymologically referring to "meteorite") is one of the largest and most important Orthodox monastery complexes in Greece, the second after Mount Athos. A place that seems unreal, considering both the unique relief forms in the respective geographical area, as well as the location of the 6 monasteries on the peaks of the mountainous formations. At this moment the Meteora complex consists of 6 monasteries, one more beautiful than the other. The writings mention that initially there were 24 monasteries, but half were destroyed by the Turks, and the rest, up to 6, were destroyed during the Second World War. Some of them were abandoned and later reoccupied, now in Unesco heritage. The rocks on the top of which the monasteries are built are, according to ancient writings, rocks sent to earth from heaven, hence the name of meteors, to allow the ascetics to retreat and pray. Monastic life began at Meteora around the 9th century. Saint Athanasius being forced to leave Mount Athos, he comes here in 1334 with other monks and begins to raise on a rock at 613 m altitude a...

Walking Through Vienna

This week we arrive in Vienna, the capital of Austria. What a wonderful place! For Vienna, you definitely have to prepare your feet to go a long way because there are so many to see, both indoors, museums, galleries, exhibitions, churches, but also outside, so if you want to admire as much of this architecture as possible imperial city, the best option is to take a walk on the streets. As I mentioned in other articles, I like to explore every time I visit, so I prefer to walk or scooter / bike from one location to another. Vienna is a place of great political and cultural importance. Vienna's old town and the Schonbrunn Palace have been listed by UNESCO on the list of World Heritage monuments. This great city boasts of culture and art, a place that has a peaceful air despite the thousands of tourists and crowds. A place where things are in a well-established order and common sense prevails. What I noticed the first time I arrived in Vienna was peace. This place seems to have its peace of mind, even if it is crowded, each person has an intimacy to speak so as not to disturb the others, even if the cars make less noise there. I was surprised that I could hear my thoughts. After we landed, from the airport we bought City Cards that I had read so much about before. I opted for the valid 72 hours and paid 30 euros per person. Depending on what you choose...
