Properties Overview: Halkidiki

The interest for properties in Greece is getting higher and higher and every year more and more people are renting and buying houses and apartments for an entire year. Greece seems to be the most preferred summer destination for a family seaside holiday and for touristic one. The prices of the properties went down last year, but not because of the lack of buyers, but because of the economic crisis. However, they won’t stay that low for a long time and you better know that NOW is the best time for buying a house? And why buying? When we are talking about Greecesea-418742_640 and, moreover, when we are talking about its pearl – the peninsula Halkidiki, a house there is like an eternal ticket to heaven. This is definitely a place you would like to go as a couple, as a family, with friends or whatever. It is always sunny and it is so charming and alluring. And luckily there are properties for any preference.

House 

You would like to go there with many people. You have a huge family and need a lot of space or you simply like travelling and gathering with friends all the time. Either ways this is your choice. The houses here are almost always with two floors, several balconies and a small garden. They are the perfection itself and as soon as you see their blue roofs and white walls, you will fall in love.

Apartment 

You would love to go with your family and friends, but a house seems too big for your needs. Buy an apartment with a lovely view and you will be just as happy.

Studio 

When you are going away, you are going with your closest ones only. So you need a room or two and a kitchen, nothing more. The studios are cheap and convenient, so they will be perfect for you.


How to be more productive at work and at home?

You are waking up in that lousy Monday morning, when the fog is too thick, the weather too cold and the mood of yours so bad. construction-646914_640Going out of bed, you are thinking of the million things you need to do today and the lack of desire you have. The coffee, which is said to be your one and only saviour, could not change your attitude and you are simply grumpy. On your way to work, you are hating your job, your everydayness, your life. And what you fail to ask yourself is how you could change that. How could you be more productive today?

Be more motivated  

It is all about ambitions and motivation in the today’s life. And this motivation won’t come from a post about how hard you should try, a post you have just noticed on facebook. The truth is that the motivation should come from you. You have to know your aims and goals and you should know why this is all worthy.frog-1339892_640 These are things you should never forget. So before you go to bed, instead of thinking about the workday tomorrow in a bad way, think about the trip to Abu Dhabi the next month and what made it possible.

Be more persistent 

In other words, don’t give up. The success is not for the ones who desire it most. The success is for those who are working for it the hardest. And there is no easy way to it. You will have to fight. You will have to sacrifice your time and energy, you will have to spend a Friday night at home studying or working, instead of going out. But in the end, you will be the one with the lifestyle you have dreamed of your whole life.

 

 

 


Do or Don’t: spending money on art

There is magic in art. It is unexplainable, but it makes you feel different, it moves you and excites you in a strange, but lovely way. Art is everything around you – it is movies and music, it is people, places, theatres. Art is the beauty in the ugly and unpredictable world we are forced to survive in. Art is the reality, art are all the fairy tales. purse-758770_640Art is the nature, but art is also everything else. Art is what you understand, what you know, but what remains unsaid, as well. Art influences you too often unconsciously. But the question is, if in this world full of doubts and uncertainty, in this practical and mercantile world, it is so worthy, to spend money on art.

Don’t  

You will give hundreds or thousands pounds on something that you will hang on your wall on leave on your coffee table. It will be pure beauty, but instead of saving for a new car, for a house, for your child’s education, for your bright and shiny future, you will spend them on decoration. Well the frames full of photos and the candles all over the house will make it look cosy, as well.

Do  

Yeah, you will spend some more money and you will get a unique, fancy and sophisticated painting. You will euro-1647400_640then place it on a wall in the living room and it will change the perspectives so much, that you could hardly remember what it was before, without it. It is worth it, a lot. A nice piece of art cannot be compared with photos, not because they have no value for you, but because a painting might make your home a lot more splendid and might bring it a spirit that could make it cosy and fancy in the same time.
