A Big Thank You and a Round up of Favourite Posts from 2012


Wow. I can’t believe that 2012 is coming to a close. It’s been a massive year which saw me take up blogging back in March as a bit of fun, and amazingly – people started to read Absolute Amy.  I’ve covered topics from motherhood, fashion, charity events, reviews, beauty, recipes and giveaways. Thank you SO much to everyone who’s come and said hi, taken the time to leave a comment, other bloggers who have supported, inspired and encouraged me along the way and all the people who have shared what they’re loving in their life, because that’s what blogging is all about – sharing fashion finds, recipes, things for the kids and everything in between – so we can all live a more fun, meaningful and stylish life.

Greek Island Holiday : Part Two

Kastellorizo is one of the few places in the world that will never cease to take my breath away, it is so incredibly beautiful.  It’s a very tiny and unique island, so tiny in fact that you can walk from one end of the island (where I’m sitting in the photo below at the Megisti Hotel) to the other side in around 30 minutes.  It’s also where my husbands family are from, where we had our wedding  three years ago and where our daughter was christened last year – so it holds many, many happy memories and we were really excited to head back there for a family wedding.

‘If you like Pina Coladas…..’

I love how the boats are all painted in beautiful bright colours

Fruit salad with yoghurt and honey at Radio Cafe

One of my daily rituals in Kazzi is to head to the amazing Radio Cafe to indulge in one of their delicious fruit salads and cappuccinos.  This is no ordinary fruit salad, it’s a delicious combination of peaches, cherries, strawberries, kiwi fruit and melon all topped with greek yoghurt and honey – YUM!

A beautiful doorway and one very cute kid!

Little Miss and Mummy

We also had a day trip to the gorgeous Turkish town of Kas (pronounced Cash) while we were in Kazzi, it’s only 20 minutes away by boat and has an amazing outdoor fresh produce market as well as dozens of gorgeous shops full of hand made jewellery, pottery, bags, shoes, clothes and linen.

There were trays and trays of cherries – YUM!

Gorgeous handmade pottery 

Of course, all of this was just the lead up to the real reason why we were back in this magical part of the world – a very special family wedding, and Little Miss was a flower girl.

 And what a cute flower girl she was!

The wedding itself was AMAZING with champagne cocktails and canapés kicking off the festivities, followed by the bride and groom making their entrance with a bridal waltz and fireworks.  A feast of delicious greek food was washed down with Moet & Chandon and guests danced under the stars until the wee hours of the morning.

The happy couple

And so yet another Greek odyssey has come to an end….. now all we have to do is start planning our next trip 🙂
