The untold truth about being a twin


I've realised that for a lifestyle and twin blog, there is a serious lack of twin content. I wanted to write this post to not only add more twin content but to explain to what it’s like having a twin.  

For a very set pair of twins, we have a surprisingly little
amount of photos together  

Appreciating the old - Weekly Instagram themes

I always wanted to have an Instagram theme but I've never been able to settle on one; so ever since the start of February I decided to have a new theme every week. I've not only done this to keep my feed new and exciting but also to develop my photography and editing skills. By changing every week I'm forced to look at for new editing styles that I likely wouldn't have tried before, really building on my presets on Lightroom.

This weeks theme is film and was inspired by my grandparents. They were telling me about when they came to England and the work they done to support their (our) family. This theme is about appreciating the old so we can develop in the future.


Weekly Instagram themes - Why I love Rome

If you follow me on Instagram then you'll notice I've going through a bit of a Rome meltdown this week. I found all my photos from Rome and it made me reminiscent from when I was there a year ago. I fell in love with the city (admittedly not straight away) and wanted to explain why.


The Music Revolution

From the minute I get out of bed until the second I get back into it, I’m listening to music. Almost like a drug, music is slowly taking over my life. It’s only when you think about how often and on how many devices you listen to music through that it starts to get concerning. Think about it, how different would everyday tasks be without music?

Why I love London so much

Admittedly, I'm a little bias being a born and bread Londoner, but London is the best city. There's something special when you're there and something you miss when you're not. When I'm, in Kent, I find my self constantly moaning about how much better London is, I actually do this where ever I go...
Here are the reasons why I love London so much!

Goals for 2017

Everyone I know keeps saying 'new year, new me' and setting themselves new years resolutions. I'm not a fan of setting new years resolutions because are doomed to fail. One of my friends said they were going to quit smoking but ended up just reducing it to weekends. I mean fair enough but still - fail. I'm more of a set a goal when you think of one, it just so happened that I thought of the new goals at the beginning of 2017... 

Here are my goals (not resolutions) for 2017!

What I achieved in 2016

Despite what everyone is eager to remind you of, 2016 wasn't all bad. After seeing all of the 'thank god it's over' tweets (and even sending out one of my own) I thought it would be fun to write about some of my achievements.

Christmas With The Greeks

For many, Christmas means an intimate family gathering with a quiet dinner and some friendly games. For us Greeks however, Christmas is a time for guilt, having all 200 cousins round and playing one too many cut throat card games.

We often refer to ourselves as speaking Greenglish (a combination of Greek and English). I mention is because we do the same with the Christmas food but instead of substituting dishes (like we would words), we make both! I'm talking English stuffing balls, Greek stuffing (rice with liver), turkey and lamb (with a bird on the side for good measure), plus every trimming under the sun. Surprisingly we always have left overs...

Things I Appreciate

Recently, I've not been uploading which is strange as I have posts written - ready to publish. As odd as this sounds coming form a lifestyle blogger, I didn't want to release my posts on surviving winter at uni or how to hide the fact you're short, I wanted to publish something with a bit more thought behind it. Over the past few weeks uni has hit me hard making me slightly more philosophical then usual, hence this post on things I appreciate.


Bloggers
Blogging buddies couldn't have a bigger influence on my life even if they tried. They're there for inspiration, support and advice. Besides, if they weren't there then I wouldn't be able to watch Maff play pool, absorb some of the joy CJ spreads or see Peters amazing photos.

Thoughts You Have When You're Early

Ask anyone I know to describe me and they'll say one of two things, 'Mario's short' or 'he's always early'. Somehow I have the mentality that on time is late drilled into my head. These are some thoughts I have whilst loitering around, waiting for my friends.
