Venetian Harbour of Chania, Crete

photo 5 (9)

I can’t be in Rethymno, Crete without visiting Chania’s beautiful Venetian Harbour. The old port is pretty and much bigger than Rethymno.  From Rethymno, we took a comfortable one-hour bus ride to Chania for less than 10 Euros.  Like Rethymno, Chania is also full of shopping, churches, old buildings, cafes, restaurants, and many smokers.  We even saw a very old woman with no teeth smoking outside the bus station in the heat.  How sad! But overall, it was a fun, but humid, day.  My favorite part of that day was probably shopping at Juke Box music store where the owner, George A. Korkidis, was so nice, helpful and a lot of fun.  He made our music shopping such an experience that we will always remember Chania for.  Enjoy the slide show below of my photos.  For those of you viewing this from your email, click on the post title to view the photos in your browser.

Eating Healthy Doesn’t Have To Be Boring…

I hope that you had a great 4th of July holiday weekend. I am sure you spent the long weekend eating, barbecuing, celebrating, and other fun, but not so healthy activities. It’s now time to get back into your healthy habits. A diet full of greens will not only energize you, but will also heal your Heart Chakra, too! Don’t forget your exercise and sleep to keep those wrinkles and dark circles away. This summer, Crete is on my agenda and I’m getting ready for another fashion show that I will be directing and styling on September 17. So I do not have a choice but to make sure I get in great shape! Besides getting up at 5:30am to train with my accountability partners, I make sure to eat healthy so that I stay energized and productive at work. See below for some creative ways to eat healthy as you get in sexy-beach shape. Have healthy recipes to share? Email me.
