We’re in July now, with half of this year gone. Who can believe this? Time flies so fast! My brain still feels like it’s 2019. I wanted to post a little recap of June 2021. Places I’ve visited, foods and activities I enjoyed. Join me on this little time travel if you wish. 🙂
Who doesn’t like a random fun fact? It’s always great knowledge to use in pub quizzes, to throw in a conversation with friends or just to learn for our own satisfaction. Information sinks in so much easier in form of fun facts, doesn’t it? Today, I compiled a list about something I can’t live without – coffee. Grab your latte or americano, sit comfortably and enjoy. 🙂
If you’ve been following my blog for a long time, you probably know that I’m an animal person. My huge hobby is learning about reptiles, but I’m generally interested in all types of animals. I love watching nature documentaries, I love visiting zoos and I watch loads of YouTube videos about keeping exotic animals as pets. When my life situation allows it, I plan to get some snakes and lizards and a few high maintenance insects – but for now, I became a mum of two six-legged girls.
The pandemic forced the majority of the world to stay at home at some point. The longer the lockdown was, the more boring it felt. Even the nearby park with cute, friendly squirrels wasn’t enough to fill all of my spare time. It felt a bit like long, dark winter evenings, just with considerably more sunshine. One of my favourite time killers in winter are jigsaw puzzles, and it was one of the things I did a lot during lockdown.
This year, I decided to take a look at astrology – an interesting, though controversial subject – and each month examine one star sign and the personality features it allegedly entails. Last month we had a look at Aquarians and – to my surprise – the overwhelming majority of you claimed that the star sign, even if not the most important factor in determining one’s personality, played an important role and often influenced our choices. The characteristics of Aquarian personality seemed to match Aquarian representatives fairly well. I’m curious to see if the trend continues. Today, Pisces take over and they’ll reign until the 20th of March.
I love my kitchen more than any other place, really. I like to have it well-equipped, but I also like to have it pretty. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with rose gold homeware (and judging from the amount of rose gold items in homeware stores, I’m not the only one). I recently went through online stores in search for the prettiest rose gold kitchen I could find. Here are my top picks!
Happy Valentine’s Day! To all of those celebrating the holiday with your partners – I hope you have an amazing time. And if you’re one of those spending the day on your own (just like me! high five!) – I’ve got something for you! A list of interesting facts about Valentine’s Day. So treat yourself with some sweets, maybe a warm cup of delicious tea as well, sit comfortably, and – hopefully – enjoy this quick little read.
Oh, lovely food. We’re blessed to be alive in the 21st century, living in developed countries where supermarket shelves are packed with an extremely wide variety of products. We’re lucky to be able to choose between different brands and types of food. So how do we choose which item to purchase? I’d highly recommend that we read ingredient lists and make conscious, wise choices. And – hopefully, in the future – force brands to increase their standards. Reading ingredient lists can help you save money, stay healthier and avoid disappointments. Here’s why.
We’re now about to enter the Valentine’s week. Do you celebrate the holiday? And if so, do you exchange gifts with your other half? If the answer is yes but you still haven’t decided what to get this year – I’ve prepared a few ideas! And if you’re one of those cringing at the heart-themed, couples kind of items shown on display of most stores at this time of year – sorry for that! The Valentine cringe will be over in just a few days. 😉
Please forgive me for giving in to the ubiquitous Valentine’s mood – it will soon be over! But before that happens, I’d like to share a few more things. Today, I’m coming with another mandala – heart themed this time. It’s also a great occasion to finally launch a new section on this blog – downloadable resources! I’ve been meaning to do this for ages, and now, having released my Christmas themed book and a few colouring pages, it feels like a good start. So without further ado – here’s what I have for you today!
