Pizza Recipe

Today I was in mood for a pizza
 but since the summer is here I must be more careful with the calories I consume so I decided to make my own pizza to avoid extra calories.
This is a simple pizza recipe that can be done in 40 minutes.
The ingredients you will need for the dough are:

2 1/2 c. flour
2 3/4 tsp. baking powder (if using baking soda use half and omit salt)
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. oil
3/4 to 1 c. water

Mix dry ingredients. add 3/4 cup water and oil. Stir until it forms a ball. If dough is stiff, add more water.
The dough will be soft, not sticky and then it's ready to be pressed down with your fist!
 For the topping of the pizza you will need
5 tomatoes 
1 onion 
2 tbs olive oil
some slices of your favorite cheese

  I used a grater to slice the tomatoes
I did the same thing with the onion
and then I placed them in a large pan with little bit of olive oil and I let them there for about 5-10 minutes until they boil.

After that the pizza is practically done because all you have to do is put the mix on the top of your dough and then place some cheese (I used my favorite diet cheese)
I baked it on the oven for 30 minutes at 400F  and this is the result
It was really easy, quick and tasty and low in calories :)

A Walk In The Garden

Hello everyone :)
This month in Greece is so hot that you can barely go out during the day..
But I'm really brave and I decided to to go for a walk at the national park and feed the animals.
The National Park is a lovely place in the center of Athens and seems like a tropical paradise..
Εθνικός Κήπος
I'm really happy when I'm close to nature.
All the little birds singing create a dreamy atmosphere.
I also love the ducks and the chickens
and the billy goats
and this peacock that was so excited when he saw me that opened his feathers.
I guess that because of my blue hair believed that I'm a male peacock.. so he stood in front of me for a long time shacking his feathers!
I must admit that I really liked this peacock, I would love to have one in my home.
So that was my trip for today..
Really soon I'm going to the greek island Milos for vacation but don't you worry I wont be gone for long :)
aww I love summer.

What are your plans for this summer?

I went to see Iggy! Youhou!

Hello everyone!
A few days ago I went to se Iggy Pop (and the Stooges) live in Athens. With him there were also Everlast and Prodigy.
But I went to see Iggy Pop :D
And it was awesome.
First things first, I re-cut my fringe, just for the concert. I know I will regret doing this (because it's summer and all) but it looks cool. Another thing is that I shouldn't have worn white shoes.

Here is the only pictures I took there, they are fuzzy and weird but they have to do. Because the concert was INSANE and it was so amazing that I didn't even think of taking more pictures. At the last song of Iggy I tried to take one or two just because I thought he was done playing and I was dying of fatigue.
But he was great. He played for 2 hours straight, he sounded like he hasn't aged at all and his energy was amazing the while time (he was supposed to play for 1hour and 15 min)
The crowd was going insane literally. Later on my white shoes were black and my hair was a huge mess but you know Prodigy were next so it didn't really matter.
And the next day my arms and legs were hurting SO bad!
Prodigy were great as well. But this was expected.
Everlast was before Iggy, and he was good I just thing his style didn't match the rest of the artists..
Gah! I had sooo much fun! (getting nostalgic)
Why haven't I gone to more concerts?
Since I was relatively at the front, there were lots of mosh pits going on. And I managed to save a girl! :D
hahahah I think she didn't realise but she was almost pushed to the ground and I grabbed her aside. I'm such a hero!
I'm sorry I don't have any good pictures for you guys but I hate being that one person that takes pictures all the time and is annoying to everyone else. If you have to take pictures sir stay at the back! pft!

And here is the make up I was wearing. Which did stay on all night! Despite the sweating and all that sexy stuff!
*impressed*

Small compilation of photos that I took that look like crap:

So yup, if ever Iggy pops up in your country just go see him ok?
Have you been to any great concerts lately??

Hello everyone! Recenlty I found this awesome recipe (via) and decided to give it a try! And it turned out amazing! You should definitely try this quick and easy recipe :)


You will need:
2 chicken breasts cut in pieces
5-6 tbsp of Mustard
1 tbsp of honey
3/4 cup of vodka
Juice from 2-3 lemons
salt
pepper
oregano
3-4 tbsp of olive oil




Put the chicken and the pepper in a pan and cook them until the chicken is white. Once that happens, add the vodka and leave it cooking for another 1-2 min.









In a shaker add the mustard, the lemon juice, the oregano, the salt and the pepper and stir them well. Add them to the pan.
Add water to the pan until it almost covers the chicken.
When it boils, and the honey and stir.








After that lowerd the heat and let it boil until the sauce is thicker.
And you are done!

This recipe would be perfect for a romatic diner or even a diner for the family. And it's low in calories as well! yay!

I hope you will try it out and if you do don't forget to tell me how it went :)

Floral Drawers

Hello everyone :)
Today I was in the mood for doing something creative.
For a long time I wanted to change my room,
so I decided to change my drawers!!
I'm gonna show you how I went from this to that!
As you can see these drawers are white and boring..
At first I took this wonderful floral wallpaper and one random book approximately at the size of one drawer.(I couldn't find a ruler)
and then I drew a line across the paper 
this line was my guide on where to cut the paper
and after the cut I placed it carefully on the drawer
and this is the result!!!
I'm really happy with the outcome!! :)
Now my room is more girly and more cute!!
What do you think about my idea??
Do you like it?

Today I was searching online for a romantic pink dress and I must admit that I found the most perfect etsy shop!!
The store is called  Lovely Melody Clothing and I have to admit that Keeratika Bthe owner of the shop, is really talented!
Her mother taught her how to make clothes and she loved floral and pastel fabrics (omg these are my favorite fabrics too)
All of her dresses are perfect!!
This summer dress almost made me cry..
The only problem I have is that I can't decide wich dress I love the most!

ps. B is a huge Harry Potter fan!
It just makes it impossible not to love her :)

New Hair Extensions

Hello everyone :)
As you may know I really love searching the stores for new things..
Recently I started looking for sunglasses and a hat because the sun hurts my eyes really bad and my hair fades super fast.
But somehow I ended up with new hair extensions.
I don't know how this happened..
This is my first time ever I wear extensions althought in the past I had many wigs!
I bought blonde hair extensions and I dyed them blue.
I'm not really satisfied with the result but I'm not sure If it's that bad.
I guess I'm not used seeing myself with extensions..
Anyway I know that the extensions are not the same color as my hair but I'll try to dye them again one of these days.

So how do you feel about them.
Do you think that this look is an epic fail or wearable??
