Summer is just around the corner now and even here, in London, we’ve had a few hot days already. Having ice cream every day is tempting, but probably not the healthiest choice – at least not store bought ice cream packed with sugar. That doesn’t mean we can’t have a nice, frozen treat whenever we feel like our body is beginning to melt. Yes, you heard it right – you can have a frozen treat every day and stay healthy! And here is how.
Just like me, my sister loves geckos. After all, aren’t they some of the cutest little creatures? I decided to broaden my horizons and give quilling a break whilst I experiment with other mediums. I’ve already made a card for Mother’s Day, and now it was time to make a card for my sister’s birthday.
Many of us are stuck at homes under lockdown, and it’s important to look after ourselves and eat healthily. But healthy doesn’t have to be dull and flavourless! Today, I’m coming with a healthy breakfast treat recipe. Perhaps slightly less healthy than a smoothie from leafy greens, but still made with natural ingredients, low in fat and sugar, but packed with protein and macro elements. And most importantly – delicious!

Tuesday the 26th of May was Mother’s Day in Poland. Ever since I discovered the joy of quilling, every card I ever made used that technique. Recently however, I’ve been feeling adventurous with painting and decided to make a card with watercolours. I didn’t go too crazy with the picture, I thought keeping it simple would be the best idea giving my watercolours experience (or the lack of it, ha!).
After moving to London in September last year, I had only one goal – to spend some time by the sea before autumn and winter come with their rain and cold. Busy with looking for a flat (I moved countries with an Airbnb booked for just 5 weeks – I needed something permanent ASAP!), I could only afford to leave the city on the first weekend in between flat viewings. I had one Sunday afternoon to spare – and I decided to use it wisely and see the sea and catch the last rays of sun. What a great idea it was!
It’s been a looong time since I last did any type of crafts. After moving out from my family house and starting a new life abroad I’ve been busy trying to figure out the adult life in the rare moments of spare time. Autumn has always seen a downfall of crafting for me – all of the occasions such as Mother’s Day or family members’ birthdays fall between March and July, so I usually do most of my cardmaking in that period. My dad’s birthday comes first, so his birthday card is typically my first quilling craft in the year.
Is there any food better than spicy, aromatic, warming curry for this cold, miserable winter season? I don’t think there is! This is what keeps me alive in winter, I usually end up eating some kind of curry a few times a week. And what I love about it is how simple and quick it is to make – hardly any effort involved! You can easily multiply the ingredients and prepare dinner for a few days in one go – it tastes just as good when heated up the next day. 🙂
I started writing this post in August last year and never finished it. September brought a lot of changes to my previously calm and boring life and I needed to focus on making it all successful. It’s a shame I didn’t get to post this when I originally planned to, but I do believe these photos are worth publishing, even with a massive delay. Here it is, a travel in time back to August 2019! (Everything below was written half a year ago)
I’m a great, unconditional fan of porridge. Some may hate it, but I certainly love it. It’s my staple breakfast which I eat on average 5 times a week – usually in the 5-minute, no-cook office breakfast version. It does its job and tastes great, but I’m always more than happy to use a chance to cook my porridge. Being in the festive season, I decided to create a Christmas version of my favourite breakfast. Here’s a recipe for my perfect festive, warming, aromatic, gingerbread porridge!
You probably know it already, but I’ll say it just in case: Christmas is just around the corner. Some of us have already finished their Christmas gift shopping. Others, perhaps, still haven’t even started. Whichever group you belong to, you might want to add some original, simple DIY gifts to your list. The idea I’m bringing you today will be perfect to use as a gift for someone who loves to bake. It’s very flexible too, so you can easily adjust it to further personalise this little present. The thing I’m talking about is a DIY cookie mix in a jar.
