Hello my friends,
Today's post is a desperate effort for me to get my mind off of things. For those who don't know, I live in Greece, and we're facing some real hard times. Today is a day that will go down in history. If you've been following the world news then you must be acquainted with the situation here.
I don't want to get political right now, I've expressed my views via tumblr and twitter but this is not the place for that. Some of you may wonder, with everything that's happening to your country how do you have the desire to talk about such frivolous and vapid things like fashion, vacations and shopping?
You have to keep in mind that this website is international and it is directed to people from all around the world. That has always been my intent: to keep it open and accessible to everyone and that's why it isn't written in my mother language (I've always felt more at ease writing in English anyway). I know that not posting today wouldn't hurt anyone but as you can see I haven't updated this blog in a while. I needed to do it today because I need to get away. I need to have hope. I need to interact with people who don't have the same worries as me. I've been discussing politics 24/7 with the people around me and on social media, trying to get my point across, trying to make my voice heard in this madness. I did what I had to. Today is going to be a long day. If what it takes for me to get through it is to talk about shoes and sunscreen, then so be it.
