Valentine Anise Cookies

Valentine Anise Cookies

As we probably all know (it’s hard not to notice the ubiquitous heart-shaped, pink decorations wherever you look) – it’s Valentine’s Day this week. I hope all of you who celebrate it have a lovely time with your partners. Even though I’m not convinced by the commercial aspect of this holiday (you should show your love and appreciation every day, not once a year through buying overpriced themed gifts), I do enjoy all those cute, pink, themed things that we see everywhere at this time of year and I gave in to that mood.

Why my bag weighs a ton – what’s in my bag – essentials

Why my bag weighs a ton – what’s in my bag – essentials

‘The hell are you carrying in there? Bricks?!’

If I got a pound every time I heard that I’d be a millionaire now. I only have bare necessities in my bag though! A lot of them… sure… but I do need them all.

1. Hand sanitizer. Cause there’s nothing worse than accidentally touching something sticky and being unable to wash your hands.

2. Adhesive band-aid. Cause you never know when you’re gonna need it.

3. Tangle teezer. Cause one can’t live without a hair brush with hair as long as mine.

4. Chapstick. Cause leaving home without my trusty Carmex is like leaving home without an arm or a leg.

5. Handcream. Might not seem like a necessity but it’s genuinely my most used thing from this list.

6. Little nail file. Cause a broken nail with sharp edges is one of the most annoying things in the whole wide world.

7. Chewing gum. Cause if you happen to eat something you wanna refresh your mouth afterwards.

8. Umbrella. Cause if you leave it at home you’re guaranteed to be caught by heavy rainstorm. Even if it doesn’t usually rain, just leave the umbrella at home and it will.

9. A piece of paper and a biro. Cause… Hm. I guess it might be useful sometimes, right? I’m not a fan of writing things down on the phone.

10. Clear nail polish, especially if I’m wearing tights. Cause you wanna prevent that run from spreading.

11. A pack of pocket tissues. No need to justify this, I believe.

12. A tiny bottle of refreshing perfume. Cause I wan’t to feel (and smell) fresh, especially in summertime.

13. Painkillers. Cause you don’t want an unexpected headache to ruin your day.

14. Earbuds. Cause I need my music to go with me everywhere.

(15. Powerbank, in case I plan on being outdoors all day)

Phone, wallet, documents, keys… all the regular essentials everyone usually carries around.

It all makes sense, right?

Is there anything I’m missing that would make my life easier (and my bag even heavier)?

Although I have a lot of stuff in my bag I believe I have it all under control. I was a lot more unorganized in the past though. When I once lost a remote control from my tv I found it after a week… in my bag, of course. ^^’

A little throwback to January. Looks like all I did that month was eat and craft ^^’ Hopefully February will bring more diversity, although the weather is still wintery (we got hit by a fresh supply of snow last night…) and doesn’t encourage leaving the warmth and coziness of my house. I do however have one exciting afternoon planned for next week and I can’t wait for it!

Bye bye, Christmas!

Bye bye, Christmas!

I know, I know. Most of you are probably thinking: ‘Saying goodbye to Christmas now? It’s February!’. Well, in Polish tradition (which originates from catholic traditions), we’re allowed to keep all Christmas decorations and Christmas trees for over a month after the actual holiday, until February 2nd! Pretty cool, isn’t it? Having that lovely Christmas spirit at home for such a long time 🙂
