You are cleaning too slowly? Here are the reasons why.

You are calm and happy every Saturday morning, when you have planned to clean up your entire home, and you even find something soothing in this whole procedure, you are not annoyed at all; it’s not a stupid duty for you. And yes, you are getting started with a surprising enthusiasm just after you have drunk your morning coffee. And the whole day you are not sorry at all, because you know that it is all worth it, but later in the evening when you realize that you haven’t done even half of the things you wanted to do, you are indeed disappointed. You know you have the right cleaning products as you have made a research earlier and you have found those that are strong and eco-friendly at the same time, you even have the cleaning tools that the professional team recommended you during the end of tenancy cleaning, but something is still going wrong, because the whole cleaning turns out to be not effective at all. In fact there are some little things that you usually neglect, but in the reality cause you a lot of trouble. So next time, pay attention to the details!  

The pre-move in kitchen cleaning

You know how stressful the whole move out is, right? And you know how relieved and happy you feel when it is all done. Yes, the whole planning and packing, the time you spend making a research for the best end of tenancy cleaning company in London (thanks God, I chose the right one), the after tenancy checklist, the inventory one and the inspection of the landlord, the transportation. It is all done! And you think that you save and you won’t have to give yourself this trouble soon, when in fact you end up waking up in your new home, walking somehow to the kitchen and making a cup of coffee. And while you are waiting for it to be done, you take a look at this room and you are more than unsatisfied by what you see. Yes, it looked perfect when you came here with the real estate agent, but now you can more explicitly notice the imperfections and some little details that surely annoy you. Ok, the paradise you lived in for the last 24 hours was just destroyed and the reality happened. So instead of complaining and procrastinating now, you better get started and make this kitchen the one of your dreams.  

Sea, sand, salt, us

Close your eyes for a second, open your mind hear the quiet and calm noise of the waves, feel the sunshine on every part of your body, the humid air soaked with emotions of other people at other shores, or in a boat in the middle of the sea, and your heavy breathing, the salt on your skin, the slight gentle breeze in your hair, open your eyes, see the perfectly blue sea with no end, notice its motion that calms you and excites you in the same time, see the reflection of the sun in the waters and the sun itself – dazzling and bright, see the sky in one of its million shades of blue changing every time you look up, see this place with no borders, which destroys all borders in your heart and make you want to fly. Breathe slowly this air full of tranquility and freedom.

Why your best holiday could be in Halkidiki only?

It is summer again, but there is no beach, no breeze, no salty and tanned skin and no holiday, for now, you are stuck in the office. But every single time you see a Facebook post of one of your friends lying on a beach somewhere with a Mojito in one hand and a lovely novel in the other, you are trying to kill your envy with thoughts about your own holiday. The main question now is which destination you should choose and where you should go? The first option is the touristic sight – that city or country that is full of history and architecture and tourists and there is nothing other than crowds and queues and people and yes you should go in Egypt and see the pyramids, you should take a look from the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and take a photo from the Empire State Building.

My dream house in Halkidiki

You all know Greece – the land of the timelessness, of the complete tranquility and the nonchalance of the people that almost borders on unconventionality and madness. Greece is blue, magical and free. Greece is the home of my soul and that is why I wanted to build a home here. So this is the reason I bought a house in Halkidiki. And it’s not a simple house – it’s one of those lovely small white buildings with blue shatters. It has spacious rooms, high ceilings and a history; it has even balcony. And on it you can drink your coffee when you wake up late in the morning (is it morning around 11a.m.?), you can have Greek yogurt with figs from the garden for brunch and just relax. On the same balcony you can prepare your lunch cooking on a grill the fishes meshed only a couple of hours earlier that you bought from the local market. Or you can simply be at ease, looking at the sea that is 100 meters away, relishing the breeze and the sunshine, the coolness and the heat. You can spend your evening with the one you love, two couples of ouzo and so much to share. On the next day, after you have jogged on the lovely endless Halkidiki beach, you can Continue Reading
