I love Ballet

Yesterday I read on Cup of Jo about the City.ballet, the 12-episode web reality show developed, produced and narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker. I wanted to check out one episode to see what it is about and I could not help watching all the episodes at a stretch! Each episode which lasts around 6-7 minutes goes behind the scenes of the intense life of the dancers of the New York City Ballet. I found it so inspiring and enchanting! I have always admired ballet art and the dancers for their discipline and their ability to make something so hard to look easy! 
Check out the full series on Aol city.ballet 
and if you like it, I recommend you to watch the documentary film "First Position", you will appreciate further ballet performances! 

Εχθές διάβασα κάπου για το City.ballet της Sarah Jessica Parker, το τηλεοπτικό σόου, παραγωγός του οποίου είναι η ίδια.

November movements : Movember & Dinovember

Movember (the global charity movement which calls on men to grow mustaches during the month of November in order to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers) is not the only movement which is happening during November. 

Why don't you grow a moustach (growYourMo) & download the app Movember!

Some days I ago, my friend Maya refered to me the following link. I found the idea awesome! And I will definetely execute it as soon as the girls will become a bit older to enjoy it! The dinovember!

Recipes for toddlers who refuse to eat

Για ελληνικά πατήστε εδώ 
Lately my twins have became very picky with food. Probably it is a phase which I hope they will outgrow as soon as possible because it is getting too hard to keep them calm on the chair. As soon as they see a colourful plate (which means veggies inside), they turn their heads, push the spoons away and clamp their mouths closed...And consider that some months ago they were eating anything and everything they could put their hands on! I decided not to stress about it, but try to invent new recipes and "hide" the vegetables in the food they prefer. 
Three friends of mine and marvellous mothers send me three delicious recipes (& the photos) they do for their kids and not only!

Pregnancy Essentials

Lately, there are plenty of pregnant women around me which is great!Last week I received a visit from two friends of mine, who are in their 5th and 9th month relatively. I was so excited to see them! Apparently, we were focused on the pregnancy stuff, and I realised I have forgotten what it s like being pregnant (it s been more than a year since my experience)...I remember though some essential items that I had relied on during my pregnancy, so I thought I can share on this blog the gear that had been most helpful to me !
