It finally feels like spring – hallelujah! I can’t wait to spend a little time outdoors this weekend relaxing. I’ve managed to sneak out for a few bits here and there but at this time of year I’m always anxious for some sun on my face. (Please please please)

Have a wonderful weekend you guys!

Eat Your Greens Vol 2


[ winter abundance bowl // the big salad // // roasted potato and paprika chickpea salad ]

Funny story: I had the first recipe saved on my computer for a little while, waiting to be used. Coincidentally someone I know in real life posted a yummy looking pic to Instagram this week and, lo and behold, when I asked what it was it was the abundance bowl. So it’s doubly approved in these parts I guess!

Ammos Hotel, Crete Pool

The Ammos Hotel is a offbeat yet upscale choice west of Chania. The relatively small 33-room hotel was initially constructed in the 80s and was given a full revamp in 2008. The owner, Nikos Tsepetis and the designer, Elisa Manola, kept a firm hand on the overall design which included both the interiors and furnishings.

The white exteriors seems pretty par for the course but the interiors reveal bright colors and details that set this hotel well apart from the average in the area. Rooms feature large bathrooms with Corian countertops, custom teak furniture and subtle art deco-inspired details. Gooms feature balconies or terraces with ocean views while suites also offer kitchenettes.

Surprisingly though, the shining star of the hotel is the food. The Ammos has garnered a reputation as something of a foodie destination in the area for serving up amazing Greek dishes like meatballs and calamari for dinner along with wonderful wine from the local monasteries. For breakfast, expect mizithra cheese, yogurt, tiropita pies, alongside with eggs and bacon.

The restaurant itself is breezy and open concept, featuring a wild collection of mismatched designer dining chairs. A Bisazza wall mosaic, arabesque tiled floors and a glass curio cabinet filled with treasures from local flea markets enhance the eclectic feel.

The tiny onsite spa offers a rather large range of treatments including salt scrubs and Thai massage.

I thought this was just my obsession but it seems the fashion world is agreeing with me. Marble prints are having a moment right now. They are black and white and kind of reminiscent of tie dye, so they are perfect for casual summer wear. When I saw this Phillip Lim 3.1 geode print, I totally swooned. I mean, how gorgeous is that print? Nature doesn’t make mistakes, right? (And on that note now I am wondering why it’s so common to wear flower print but stone print still seems so unusual.) But this is all proof that marble print works in all forms – even on shoes and tote bags.
