Fall checklist: the scarf

The next fall essential on my list is the scarf. Big, small, infinity, woolen, textile, monochromatic, colourful, with stripes, with fringe…I love them all. It’s one of my favorite accessories, especially for this season. And if you have a sensitive neck like me, the scarf is simply a must. You can pair it with shirts, t-shirts, tops and dresses and you’ll always look good and stay warm at the same time. Fall checklist: the scarf

Fall checklist: the moto jacket

 As the weather is getting colder in this part of the world, I, and I guess most people, start bundling up and craving more warm nights on the couch. I try to stay on trend, but there are a few essentials I’ve discovered work for every fall that comes and goes. I tend to share them every day of this week, so stay tuned.

#1 The jacket

Fall can be tricky – cold in the mornings and warm during the day, so I always wear a jacket. I have a few faux leather and denim ones, so I suggest you get at least one. If you go with the moto style, you can always try something like this:

Friday finds

Hey guys! This is something I’m considering trying. As I love to search the web for new and interesting things, most often linked to my interests, I’d like to share these finds with you. And hhat better day to do that than Friday – I’ve had all the work week to gather some very interesting things. I’d like to start with these:

The first one isn’t exactly a find but I’d love to share it nevertheless. It’s a project I’ve been working on from the start of the year and I’m really proud of. So, if some of you want to discover the beauties of my country, you can and must totally use this website, whose content is my doing:


The English version will be online soon, so I’ll keep you posted on this.

My other shares are proper finds. An inventive shoes designer whose flats can be turned into heels in one simple movement:


And these super cute jewelry I found on Etsy and really considering ordering one of those. You know I’m a sucker for animals:


Road tripping art

This past weekend I was be able to combine some of my favorite things – traveling and art. We went to the mountain city of Bansko for a graffiti fest. It was held in a secluded nice hotel in the woods just off the road to the ski slopes. The place has the fitting name “Secret hotel” as we needed around 40 minutes to find it. But it was worth it as we were warmly welcomed by a cool couple. And the next day was the Bansko secret graffiti collaboration – a great event with talanted artists, cool music, beautiful scenery and lots of laughs. Too bad we had to leave on the first day as Martin departed for the Czech republic this morning. I couldn’t take pictures of all the finished pieces but if I get hold of them a second post will follow. In the meantime, enjoy the ones I’ve got and I hope you spot the theme:


Hat craze

I still haven’t shared the photos and experience from my travels from the last few months but I’m experiencing some technical problems… don’t ask. However, I can share with you my new craze-hats. After I cut my hair I found that I like how hats look on me. I even bought 5 or 6 different ones but haven’t wore them more than once. I decided to change that and I think it’s worth it. What do you think:


Friday pin up


Paris week will continue soon,as I was a little under the weather. But today I decided to share today’s outfit as I’m super happy with it. The other day I finally went to a little vintage shop I was passing by for the last 6 months. After I’ve tried on 90% of the clothes, I bought 3 cute dresses and a blazer. This is one of the dresses – a blue Clockhouse piece with small flamingo print that I couldn’t resist. I matched it with white lace H&M platforms, a light blue H&M messenger bag, Swarovski stardust light blue bracelet, MAC Russian red lipstick and navy head scarf. I can’t wait to see what you think of the outfit.

Paris week: graffiti part 2

Today is the second part of the amazing Beauvais and Paris street art I wanted to share with you. You can see the difference between the storage house in Beauvais and the little streets in Paris. We were there with some artists and they took the camera that Space Invader had put in the wall so I was able to take a photo. I also loved the stencils that seemed very popular in Paris. Batgirl and the Skeleton playing with a brain were particularly cool. Hope you like them.















Paris week: graffiti part 1

I’ve been missing out on my maze a lot but I’m finally finished with my other works and projects. So I took a much needed break and I’m back for good with great stuff to share. First of all, this year is going to be my best travel – wise. I was in Romania in March, two times in Greece already, and me and Martin visited Paris, Vienna and Prague in the last two months. And I’m planning some more trips, but we’ll see.

So, what better way to start than to share the best trip we had so far – the one to Paris. I’ve been there a couple of times since I have some relatives in France (and, no, that’s not why my name is Manon, it comes from the opera) and I really liked the city. But this time I saw with new eyes, both the eyes of a grown up who knows all about history and the eyes of kid when we went to Disneyland. I have lots of stuff to tell you about this exciting city but first, I will start with the photos of a friend of mine. Yes. this will be our first “guest star” here on Manon’s maze. He took the pics for me as he knows how much I love street art and these pieces found in Beauvais, where I landed in order to get to Paris, are simply amazing. Enjoy!

Mints and Vespas

I think I found my favorite spring color and it goes great with my red hair, so double win. I matched my mint and bright yellow wedges with black jeans from H&M, mint top from Zara, denim jacket and my vintage bag with Vespas, that Martin bought me last year when we were at Legkada. This quirky accessory just makes me smile and completes the whole outfit. Stay tuned for the other accessories I’m loving right now..


A place to call home

I guess everyone has experienced the sensation to go somewhere new and to feel instantly at home, at peace with yourself and filled with joy. I love travelling, as you may know, and all the places I’ve visited have charmed me in some way. But there are a few I felt at home. And one of them is Greece. It’s not exotic, it’s not something unexpected, but the minute I cross the border I feel happy. I can  taste of sea food in my mouth, the sun on my skin and the clear waters of the Mediterranean or the Aegean sea spread before me. And being able to experience this a few times a year makes me very lucky, I know. And a few weeks back was one of those times. We visited Kassandra, which is one of the peninsulas of Chalkidiki and I’ve heard it’s very crowded and expensive but at the beginning of May it’s just perfect. Great hotel, lovely food, amazing beaches, astonishing views and warm people. I was glad that we could go to my favorite places, located on the other peninsula Sithonia, Nea Marmaras with the best tavern you can ever imagine Ta Kimata, Kalugria beach with the small pond where turtles live and Kalamitsi with the little island just off the beach and the amazing view of Mount Athos. If you ever get the chance – go, it’s totally worth it.
