What a week! I haven’t been having the best week so far: my job has been quite stressful, my goal to start going to the gym everyday hasn’t become a reality, I haven’t had time to blog as much as I wanted to, my internet connection is terrible and my laptop has gone mad. As a result of all this, my confidence levels haven’t been the greatest and I feel like screaming at the person from Talk-Talk at the other end of the phone! Anyway, after counting to ten and using my coping mechanisms I realized I needed to share them with you! As I said in my “Self-love for dummies” post, I believe that it is important to love yourself first and trust your capabilities above everything. I know how hard this can be and I know it’s not easy to be cheerful after a bad day but almost everything can be worked on, right?
Ah Paris…I couldn’t have a blog and not post about this city and it’s little magical wonders. As it’s one of the most visited cities in the world, everyone knows the main places to go to (Eiffel tower, Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysee, etc.) but I’m going to share with you my own personal list of favourite places and things to do. I believe Paris should be visited at least once and trust me, it’s hard not to love this place.
A few days ago I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Emwills (check out her cute blog here – thank you sweetie!) which is an award given to bloggers by bloggers. The main goal is to recognize new bloggers and show them support so they keep going. It’s a great way to put your favorite new bloggers in the spotlight and to get people to learn a bit more about your blog. The rules are quite simple:
‘Tis the season of love…and nothing says “I love you” more than something made with your own two hands. Although I believe you should show your partner you love them all year round, I do think it is nice to give your loved one a little something on this special day ♥ However, you don’t have to spend a lot of money! I have made a list that includes either things I have done before or things I found super cute online.
Let’s get creative: Continue reading
So I remembered something I saw quite a lot last year and decided to try it myself this year. It’s called a picture an hour. The idea is to document your day with one picture of something you did/saw/experienced every hour (I actually might put more pictures instead of one sometimes but the goal is the same ♥). Here’s my Saturday’s “a picture (or more) and hour”.
Today’s Blogging 101 assignment seemed quite complicated. The point was to write a post I would like my dream audience to read. After staring at the screen for what seemed like forever, I came up with nothing. But then I understood why. I want my dream audience to be anyone who is interested in reading what I write. Anyone I can inspire and that can inspire me. I want to encourage communication, keep the mind engaged and contribute in spreading the joy of life ♥
The truth is, no previous hobby has brought me more satisfaction than blogging. There are a number of reasons for this: I have grown, I have met new people and became part of a community. I have been inspired, developed new interests and learned some fun, incredible things. I have experienced the rush of every positive comment and that has kept me going. Continue reading
Today’s post is all about food – yum! ♥
So I had some friends over for dinner and made one of my favorite dishes: chicken stuffed with feta cheese and spinach. It’s an extremely easy dish to make and takes about 10 minutes to prepare. What I love about it is that after prep, you can put in the oven and do whatever you like for 45 minutes. Yep – that easy! The feta cheese is full of flavour and helps keep the chicken breast moist while cooking. And trust me, the result is amazing!
I am so excited today! No, not because it’s Monday (even though I told you to embrace Monday on my last post, it’s not my favorite day either!) but because today is the first day of my Blogging 101 course and I’m really looking forward to improving my blogging skills, especially because I’m so new to this. Now the first assignment is to write a post about who I am and why I’m here. So, here goes.
