You might have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet lately on both my blog and my YouTube channel, and that happened for a good reason: I had a beautiful baby boy last year. 😍

But that does not mean I was too busy to come up with new ideas (well, to be honest, I was quite busy for the most part of this period, but now things are kinda back to normal).

Introducing Lovelyroo

Motherhood is a wonderful thing and I decided it would be awesome to shift my attention to some activities that could nicely combine my interests for craft and handmade stuff with the present and future needs of my family.

And so Lovelyroo was created!

The idea is to be a shop of creative digital items to make the lives of parents and children more enjoyable, satisfying, and wholesome in the long run.

Starting with reward chart templates

The benefits of reward charts (also known as behaviour charts) are well studied and clearly defined.

Most parents immediately recognise the benefits of teaching children of all ages the importance of good behaviour.
But it is also important to know how to use reward charts with children.

Sometimes it can be tricky to figure out which tasks and activities are appropriate according to the age of your children, so don’t worry, I already wrote a blog post covering that.

More products coming soon

I’m planning more digital products to be available real soon, which for them I’m exercising my creativity to come up with a beautiful collection of cute animals to be part of my work.

So expect more blog posts as soon as I make the next products available!

Spend these 3 days in Athens visiting the most important and historical sites in the city, followed by extraordinary food of course.

Travel itinerary • 4 days in Santorini – Greece 🇬🇷

Santorini 4 days itinerary.
Santorini 4 days itinerary.

Our idea of going to Santorini was, of course, because I really wanted to go there since forever, also to have some relaxing days to rest a bit from our busy holidays in Europe. We got 4 days there, but in case you just want to check the main spots on the island, I would say 2-3 days are enough.

Something that I feel I must say is that I was a bit disappointed. Look, the place is beautiful indeed, but the photo perfect areas with those cave houses are super touristic. When I travel I like to see how the locals live, and there I had the impression I was in a theme park. All those houses are rentals, shops, restaurants, or hotel for tourists.

The locals live on the further areas of the island in very normal houses. I saw just one or two suburbs with that architecture you imagine when you think about Santorini. Putting it aside, the place gives you a lot of options to just chill and refresh yourself under the burning sun of Greece.

Anyways, I had 4 amazing days there, which I’ll be happily sharing with you now.
If you want to get straight to the point, here you can get my Google Maps with all the main attractions conveniently marked for you.

Keep reading if you would also like an overview of these attractions.

Day 1

Explore Thera, Firostefani, and Imerovigli

Take your time to stroll around these three suburbs in Santorini. Going up and down the alleys, there you will find those beautiful and white cave houses, a few shops, and restaurants, all facing the super blue Mediterranean sea.
