Like a christmas tree


♫ Au Revoir Simone - Fallen Snow ♫

Today my post will be super brief, 'cause it's Christmas Eve and i am not willing to lose a single second of this magical day! So the point of this post is:Did you say that you are a student on an island? I swim in the sea from May and i don't celebrate properly Christmas, that's what I heard! So here's a festive decoration for your home! Just enough(?) to feel spirit of the period! Use some dry branches and hang on them cinnamon sticks, beads etc. Of course, all of you are at yours parents houses for the Christmas, so you can make this crafty thingy with someone you really love, for example with your mum!

I wish you all merry merry Christmas this year! Have fun and kissizzz!

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
