Behind The Scenes In Greece

After months of planning, jewellery selecting, model casting and imagining, the location was set; the beautiful island of Kefalonia, Greece. Famous for its turquoise shores and the most perfect sunlight that makes the jewellery come to life, we were off to do what we do best; seek out adventure.

Hidden amongst the hills of Mount Aenos, F Zeen Retreat is on the Southern side of Kefalonia located near Lourdata beach. A tranquil and picture-perfect corner of the island which would become our home for 3 days. And what a beautiful home it was.

An early start on day 1 for hair and makeup, our beautiful model Nohemi stepped in to gear so effortlessly. She effortlessly captured the essence of Daisy with her lovely brown eyes and perfectly poised hands – her ballerina background shined through!

Day 2 we had fun, playing in the (freezing cold) sea and exploring the capital Argostoli, where we caught the attention of some intrigued locals. With unlimited beautiful backdrops, secret sun traps and endless natural light, our months of planning was becoming a beautiful reality.

We hope you all feel inspired and love them as much as we do.

When it comes to food, the Greeks know how to put on a spread and the hotel’s focus on wellness meant we always felt energised and perfectly satisfied throughout the day. Their traditional Greek Salad was a real winner - none of this sprinkling of feta malarkey but instead a whole slab! And you can’t beat freshly baked bread with plenty of olive oil to accompany it. Breakfast was a a variety of fruits, cheeses, breads, eggs, anything you could desire really. It was fair to say we got the day off to the right start.
