1. Reading dares you to grow.

Before you can read, you must learn how. You must push yourself to interact with meaningless lines and squiggles until they transform into stories, characters and ideas. And once you master picture books, you move forward to children’s novels. Novels without pictures. Classic literature. Books in

2. Reading allows you to experience multiple realities.

We all have a uniquely valuable role in life. But many of us, even if satisfied with that role, often wonder what it would be like to live in a different place, work at a different job, or even be a completely different person. For brief moments of time, books release us from the constraints of our own reality. They take us beyond our world and into someone else’s real or imaginary one. They satisfy the curiosity of the elusive “What if?”.

3. Reading challenges your perspective.

When you experience life through the eyes of another, you encounter diverse angles on life’s most common situations. Talented authors will naturally inspire empathy for their characters, and empathizing with viewpoints different from your own can feel uncomfortable. Extremely uncomfortable. While reading doesn’t mean that you’ll agree with different perspectives, it does offer you the opportunity to understand them.

4. Reading helps you remember.

Reading isn’t only about discovering the new. It’s also a vehicle for reflection. Many bibliophiles can trace their love of reading back to a cherished memory, such as being read to by a parent or discovering the first book they ever loved (Winnie the Pooh, Dr. Seuss or Enid Blyton, anyone?). Re-reading those favorite books, or reading about familiar places, times and people helps us recall the details of our own lives. It reminds us who we are, where we are and how we came here.

5. Reading helps you forget.

Chronic escapism is by no means a healthy habit, but neither is dwelling on stressful life circumstances one hundred percent of the time. In short doses, allowing your mind to focus on things other than your challenges can be highly beneficial and even necessary. Reading, like exercise, offers a safe, healthy and productive replacement for negative thinking. It gives your mind a safe place to rest until you regain the strength you need to overcome your obstacles.

6. Reading means you don’t have to be alone.

During your life, you will experience numerous transitions. Changing schools, jobs or cities may require you to replace old relationships with new ones, and sometimes successful adjustments are harder or take longer than expected. Whether it’s through the comfort of a favorite book or through an emotional connection to relatable characters, books provide a stable source of companionship during the times that you feel the only person you can count on is yourself.

Which is the latest trend that celebrities get mad for?

Birkenstocks are like that childhood friend you maybe don’t talk to all the time, but when you do, it just feels right. At whatever life stage you find yourself, there’s a Birkenstock for that. The brand is the king of subtle reinvention, fluidly moving from its flower-child associations to become a favorite of the fashion set. And now Birks are sliding into your winter wardrobe, too, with a snuggly collection lined by shearling and wrapped in wool that’s like a full-on hug for your feet.

Pair them with a simply minimalistic grey-black outfit like the one that I am wearing from Antony Morato. The grey tartare jogger pants will give a casual and cool vibe! A black knitwear from premium cotton will complete the look.

How To Choose The Perfect Pair Of Shorts
Total look: Tom Tailor by Shopandtrade.gr

Total look: Tom Tailor by Shopandtrade.gr

I really enjoy wearing shorts during my vacation holidays. At Spetses it becomes a necessity because the island is a destination for many yatchs and everyone is in that kind of mood. I found the perfect pair this year from Tom Tailor. A simple beige pair of shorts with great length and amazing fit. Below you will find a simple guide on how to choose the perfect pair of shorts for you.


1. Pay attention to the fit and your physique. If you have long slim legs, choose slim cut shorts that end above the knee for a great look. If you are short and a little chubby, go for short shorts that are not too tight, because you do not want to look like a pressed sausage.

2. Wear them with confidence and pride and use classic patterns use as stripes, checks or solids.

3. Consider shorts for very casual events such as backyard barbecues at friends but avoid sloppiness: cargo shorts, a t-shirt and flip-flops will make you look like an unsophisticated college boy, while a pair of madras shorts, with polo shirt and boat shoes or loafers will make you look debonair.

4. Wear skin-toned or heather gray underwear when wearing white or light colored shorts. Otherwise, your underwear will show through

WHY VALENTINO ESPADRILLES ARE A GREAT INVESTMENT
Shoes: Valentino

Shoes: Valentino

Who doesn't love the Valentino espadrilles? But even though they're beautiful, the shoes come with a very high price tag! Is it worth investing this kind of money in a pair of espadrilles? We think it is and here is why.

1. Timeless
Just like the Valentino clothes these espadrilles are elegant and timeless. These shoes will be your go-to shoes for years and years to come.

2. Hot-buys

Valentino espadrilles have been hot-buys for a while now, one of the fastest selling items of the brand. Which means if you don't like them after a few months, you could still sell them for the same price.

3. Comfortable
The majority of espadrilles often have a harsh interior lining due to the rope-like fabric to make the shoes. The Valentino espadrilles are however very comfortable as they are made from a slim leather.

4. Whole year round
Espadrilles are not just for summer vacations and the beach, they are the perfect shoes for many occasions and you could wear them during Summer, Spring and even during warmer days in the Fall.

5. A pair for everyone
Valentino introduces espadrilles in new fabrics and colors every season. So if you're not a fan of the blue leather espadrilles like me you might love the ones in white canvas.

I Love Horses

I find horses graceful, glorious creatures. There are so many things that are perfect about them; the way they are put together, the way they move, their fluid bodies and shining coats, the way they smell, their velvet noses and ticklish ears.

I find every one of them fascinating, different. Some horses are just simply magnificent. They are beautifully bred, handsome creatures with lots of attitude and character.

Why We Are Happier During Summer
Total outfit: Pepe Jeans London

Total outfit: Pepe Jeans London

There's something about waking up to sunshine, birds chirping, and warm air that puts many of us in a better mood. But why do we notice such a shift in our feelings and emotions when the seasons change? It turns out that there actually are scientific reasons you're happier in the summer; the warm weather and your sunny mood are no coincidence. It's rather common to feel more satisfied during the hotter, brighter months, and when this season gives way to the longer, darker days of winter (depending on where you live, of course), we'll once again experience a shift.

So what is it about summer that puts us so at peace? Why are we so much happier this time of year? Here's what we know:

1. Our Sleeping Habits Change Due To Light Exposure

The number of hours of daytime and nighttime have been found to have an effect on how and when we sleep. One study compared Norway (a country with large seasonal variation) to Ghana (a country with little seasonal variation).

2. Our Eating Habits Change In The Summer, Too

There are a couple of possible explanations for this one. One of the more simple reasons is that with the holidays of the winter seasons, certain types of foods are more abundant and frequent. But it goes deeper than that: It could actually come down to biology — our bodies' primitive instinct is to stockpile and store up for the winter months ahead. One study found that both our eating habits and our body weight change by season, with people consuming on average 86 more calories each day in the fall, compared to spring. Fall also brought more fatty foods than spring. None of this is to say that the foods we eat in the winter are "worse" than the foods we eat in the summer, by the way; they're just different, and they affect us in different ways.

3. Sunshine Can Be Great For Our Bodies

It goes without saying that there are very real, very scary risks associated with sun exposure, and that protecting yourself from harmful UV rays is tantamount. But sunlight is also quite vital to our health and happiness, and when you use it correctly, the benefits are significant. For instance, when you get sunlight, your body produces vitamin D from cholesterol, which helps your body absorb calcium. This is important for our bone health.

The Power of Red
IMG_2477.JPG

Red: it signifies power, boldness, and confidence. Whether you’re choosing lipstick or attire, don’t grab a the daring hue unless you’re feeling adventurous and want to make a statement. The color Red (it deserves to be capitalized) represents all things emphatic – stop signs, fire trucks and the #1 used emoji of all time: the red heart . You know me, I gotta go deeper than just making it all about what I have on…outfit details alone are boring, right?  Let’s dive into the psychology behind it. Red is a powerful color, so use its energy to communicate the emotion. It will be seen and heard; make no mistake! The color is completely contradictory and extreme, so it’s associated with superhero powers, danger, fury, or extreme love and passion.

The Floral Shirt

The face of men’s fashion is changing. The wardrobe of the modern male population has gone from the classic grey to the extremely alluring floral patterns. When it comes to wearing the bold and vibrant floral print, the art of pulling off this edgy look is something every man needs to learn. For all the men who are planning to go floral this bikini season, listed below are tips that may come handy for you. The floral appearance from head to toe is a bit tricky to pull off. Not every man can look dapper in the bold and vibrant patterns. Thus, it is advisable to contrast the shade with solid colors. Either wear a floral dress shirt or a bottom featuring the sassy print. You can even pair the button down with denim shorts. Nothing can beat the look of a man sporting a dress shirt with the white shorts. Floral printed shirt looks best with black jeans. Other than this, even you are wearing a floral coat, then, make sure that the shirt features solid color. The combination that contrast each other will make you stand out from rest of the mass.

A white men's shirt is the staple item you can never own enough of. A key piece for your wardrobe! For a spring look, you can go a little simpler with your outfit, making sure not to neglect the accessories that can help pull everything together. Grab a pair of pants, either tailored cotton or slim fit. Finish off with some white plimsolls and some light-weight sunglasses to achieve a spring vibe to your classic, put together look. I chose mine from Antony Morato.

A few weeks ago and very unexpected I received a package in my house by Etro! I opened it and I couldn’t believe that inside the package was the pair of shoes that I have been obsessed with since they released them! The Paisley Run shoe! Designed as a common project between men’s and women’s collections, the Paisley Run sneakers are inspired by hiking shoes and made from jacquard fabric with a Paisley motif from the brand’s archives. I felt in love with them from the day I saw them and I can not stop wearing them! You can find them here.

Art Is A Form Of Expression
Black Pants: Versace / Black Tshirt: Massimo Dutti / Black Jacket: Armani

Black Pants: Versace / Black Tshirt: Massimo Dutti / Black Jacket: Armani

Art is an expression made visible by a form. The expression contained in the form is an attempt to translate the unnamed and the unknown. Intrinsic to our existence as humans is our quest to create meaning, and art allows that process to take place. Making meaning involves understanding our surroundings and marking our experiences. Art, at its root, is an expression and the artist is an expresser, translating in order to create meaning. Art expresses and translates, art acknowledges and reveals, art transfers and art intervenes. Art is an expression—an expression of feeling, belief, and character. The simplicity of that sentence is rather deceptive and seems tidier than its implications. Just the statement that art is an expression is complex and raises questions: What does art express? Why does art express? How does art express?

THE STATEMENT KNIT
Total Outfit by: Pepe Jeans London

Total Outfit by: Pepe Jeans London

When you hear the word “sweater,” what do you first visualise? A grey, greenish, navy or brown-hued, chunky knit combination - slightly baggy and oversized - automatically surfaces somewhere in your mind. Symbolically, it is warmth for a chilly day condensed down into a single garment that’s cut perfectly for wearing over a button-down shirt or roll-neck. The statement knit, a trend that caught our eye roughly a year ago, obliterates all that. Forget about cable knits; the finer the gauge, the better. With texture taking a back seat, it opens up the gates for colours, patterns, prints and graphics: If you can see it on a tee, bomber, or ski jacket, it’s now on a sweater, too.

Winter Well Lived With The Grey Goose Family
IMG_9097.JPG

Hello everyone,

A few weeks ago I had the chance to be reunited with my Grey Goose family again. This time we headed to the mountains to enjoy the wintery slops and of course a lot of Grey Goose drinks. The family was very excited and we all really enjoyed being together again. We had the opportunity to do some ski, enjoy the local food and do some spa. This time I will let pictures talk instead of me. Take a look at the following pictures and drink responsibly.

Tom Tailor Vibes

Blue, in general, is typically associated with elements such as the sky and ocean. But beyond that it’s a color that symbolises loyalty and strength. It is a calming color and one people might turn to if trying to relax.

When it comes to cobalt blue, which dates back to the 8th and 9th centuries, it is a darker shade of blue and one that started out being used often in Chinese porcelain.

And in terms of cobalt blue in fashion, it’s an incredibly fun, yet elegant, bold color to wear in the warm and cool months and great with all skin tones.

I love blue thats why I chose this total blue Tom Tailor looks which compliment my skin tone so much. A classic blue shirt with a classic blue pant is the perfect combo to look always effortless stylish.

A Sunny Sunday

Jeans and a T-shirt is the most basic outfit known to man, the most comfortable to wear, and thus one of the hardest to pull off. Because when you're only wearing two pieces of clothing and both of them are the most widely produced menswear items on the planet, finding the perfect versions of each—and wearing them together—requires the ability to know what fits your body best. It also requires you to know what tee goes with what jeans best, and which colors and washes just won't jive. Luckily, I found mine favorite at the moment by Pepe Jeans London.

The Ideal Christmas Cocktail Party Look
DSC02209.jpg

When the cocktails are a-flowin’, the suit separates should still be showin’. For cocktail attire, look to more relaxed tailoring, and embrace the split.

Try a blazer and trouser combination in navy, grey or black. See cocktail attire as the perfect opportunity to mix fabrics and colours. 

Then, pair with slim-fit trouser separates or chinos in a dark hue. Add a collared shirt, based out by a leather brogue, a buttery Chelsea boot or this season’s footwear favourite — the penny loafer.

Depending on the event, you may be able to go open neck.

Don’t forget to wear your favourite watch. I choose the Rado DiaMaster Petite Seconde!

Essentials you need for your date night wardrobe

Often, you’ll find yourself face-to-face with a girl you want to get to know a bit better. You strike whilst the iron is hot and find yourself going on a date sooner than expected, which means you need to dress as well as act the part. What you wear will be the first thing she notices about you. You should always be prepared to have your attire discussed as much as the merits of your personality and etiquette when she rejoins her friends. Choose a nice well fitted pair of blue trousers, a grey jacket, white shirt, black oxfords and pay attention to the watch! Choose a minimal leather strapped watch like my Rado DiaMaster Petite Seconde.
