James’ christening day! It was an absolutely gorgeous day filled with love and laughter, But I’m glad it’s over. Big events tend to stress me out especially when I’m the one organising them. But the day unfolded beautifully and was made possible by a big group of people I would like to thank.

I was standing in line for a hot cup of coffee and gazing outside the window at the people walking by, the twinkling lights and Christmas decorations and a sense of happiness washed over me. No matter what has happened or is happening this is the season for healing and recharging those batteries with lots of love from friends and family.
Please tell me you have baby clothes too! That was the first thing I said when I sent designer Anna Koumoushi an e-mail asking about the Made in Cyprus campaign.
James is two months old today! Wow right?
Our lives have definitely changed since he arrived on the scene but we tried to keep our summer holiday just the way it has always been. For Georgie. Which means Agia Napa, hotel living, beach, fun parks, ice creams, walks, late nights and breakfast buffets. So far all those boxes have been ticked. With a newborn in tow.
I decided to take a few days off blogging and rest up with the family during the Easter holidays. Our past two Easters have been spent travelling so this year we wanted to be with our families and really ‘feel’ Easter.
We took a one-night trip to the mountains where papa’s parents have a house in one of the villages, visited friends and basked in the sun. We ate ridiculous amounts of delicious foods, consumed our weight in chocolate eggs, played tsougkrisma and of course my family’s favourite Easter egg game, an epic egg hunt.
