Best of 2014 
as Greek as it gets
Who made an impact last year
in my personal humble opinion..

Λίγοι και σημαντικοί φίλοι/φίλες και συνεργασίες για τις οποίες είμαι ευγνώμων και περήφανη. 
Άνθρωποι που αποτελούν κίνητρο, καλλιτέχνες, επιστήμονες, προϊόντα και υπηρεσίες με Ελληνική στάμπα και καθόλου φρου φρου και αρώματα.. heart emoticon
