Weekly Update #1

weekly update 1 Stella Asteria

Hello lovelies. Happy Monday and welcome to my first weekly update here on the blog. First of all, I have to say I am sorry for missing many posts the past couple of weeks. Turned out that wedding preparations can be a lot, even if you are planning a wedding of eight people (including us two)! But now, ten days later, we are relaxed and happier than ever. I can’t wait to share more about this wonderful day with you.

On another note, these are my last weeks in Paris for this season. Soon, my husband and I have to go back to Mykonos for our business, where we usually stay until September, when we will return to Paris. So now I am trying to soak up all that beauty of this city by doing the things I love the most, like walking by Seine river, visiting my favorite museums and parks, and spending precious time with friends. We also visited the Montmartre and the Bois de Vincennes. There are so many things, places, people I am going to miss, but I know that with the work and everything in Mykonos, time will fly by so quickly. That said, I miss my beautiful island and my life there, and I am most thankful about it. But I am just not ready to say not even a temporary goodbye to Paris. And I don’t think I’ll ever be.

Plans

This week I have to do the thing I love to hate the most. Packing. All my adult life, I am moving two times per year. I am now an expert in packing and moving, and can fit a whole household into boxes within a day, but still… I also plan to do as many photo shoots as possible before we leave. I want to create amazing content for you guys and be more consistent on my blog, with minimum three posts per week. And as always, any topic ideas, recommendations etc are welcome. Don’t forget, I write for you. πŸ™‚

Things I’m grateful for

Getting married to the love of my life

The amazing friends I have made in Paris and my life here

I will leave Paris withΒ my two big questions about myself and some very important thingsΒ about my life, answered. I feel so contented.

    Hello, my lovely. It seems you have only just finished unpacking, and now you are off again. What an exciting life you lead.
    I hope you are having a lovely Easter time. I am. Yesterday having lunch with Italian friends. I came home with foods to last me three days. And today, in my garden. Planting onions and potatoes in the veg. plot. My bedroom makeover is on hold for a little while, but have taken three or four pictures to send you. Once I have worked out how to do it.
    Kisses, Jo x

      Hello my dear Jo! Such great news! Your Easter weekend sounds ideal. Meeting friends and gardening is so fun and rejuvenating! Having a garden of my own is one of my dreams! I had a great time too, we went to the orthodox church for easter with my husband, and later for dinner. It was also his name day πŸ™‚ On Sunday we visited the Montmartre and later at the evening we met with a good friend. We were supposed to go to a party near our neighbourhood, but the line outside the place was so big that we turned around and went back home, opened a (few bottles of) wine and stayed home talking and talking, and watching the Eiffel tower from the window. As Parisian as it gets! It was amazing!
      I am looking forward to see your pictures from the bedroom makeover! I have to make one myself too when in Mykonos, so inspiration is much needed πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week ahead!
      xoxo

    What Stella! I have missed too many of your Instagram posts and didn’t realize you were planning a wedding! Your photos are utterly gorgeous and you look stunning as always. I love the classic photos you took with the retro car in the background. How busy are you to be packing to move back to Mykonos for a few months! I’m still deciding whether or not we have time to stop by in Greece on the way to London from Paris as I’ve always wanted to visit, I’ll keep you posted!

      AH don’t worry Rina πŸ™‚ I didn’t leave any hints about the wedding, before the wedding. It was an almost secret wedding of six people, I will write all about it next month when I have the photos from our photographer. I hope you get to stop in Greece too, you will be so close that it would be a pity to miss visiting a couple of islands! Hope to see you in Mykonos! Hugs xoxo

      Thank you for your lovely words and wishes Emily! If I remember well you must have moved quite recently right? Not my favourite thing to do, but then I think about the reasons I am doing it and it’s more fun πŸ˜‰

    Congratulations on getting married, Stella! I saw how my cousins and aunt got married and those weddings are so wonderful. That’s probably what you are feeling right now, right? You feel so wonderful getting married to the man you love the most.

    On another note, I wish my job requires me to travel around the world. I don’t mind packing and unpacking all my stuff as long as I can visit every corner of the world. I wish someday I can.

    Love, Xeph

      Hi Xeph and thank you for your well thought comment. Regarding getting married is exactly how I feel right now, wonderful! πŸ™‚ I hope one day soon you make your dream come true. Packing can be a pain but it’s nothing compared to the joy of traveling and changing places.

    So in love with this look!
    As you know I’m having the same blouse in blue and it’s such a great piece.
    I’m loving your first weekly review, such a cool idea.
    Congrats again to your weeding, Stella!
    I’m wishing the two of you the very best for your future.
    And last but not least: enjoy Paris as long as you can!!!
    Sadly I’m going to be there in August when you are in Mykonos?
    Lots of love your way!

    First of all congratulations on your wedding! I hope you are having an amazing life as a Mrs. Loved all your wedding pictures too. So dreamy! I think it’s fabulous that you split your time between two, frankly amazing, cities – Paris and Mykonos. I wish that were my life haha! At least I can live vicariously through you.

      Thanks a lot my dear Yasmin! I am very thankful for finally being able to live my life between these so beautiful places. It’s almost time to leave Paris now. I am happy to go to Mykonos but honestly, I am already planning some 2-3-day escapes to Paris in between summer haha! I hope you come and visit both one day! πŸ™‚

  13. 17/05/2017 / 07:13

    Congratulations again on your wedding! You looked stunning. I love that you had such an elegant and intimate wedding. This is totally our style of wedding, we don’t like big display πŸ™‚ The big summer season is gonna hit soon in Mykonos. Wish you all the best, you will surely be very busy.
