    Digital Detox

    A couple of weeks ago I watched The Social Dilemma (highly recommended) and it gave me the idea… well, more the urge to check myself and the way I use social media. Then I went further than that and I completely cut off social media for the weekend. Here’s how it went. The thing is I don’t consider myself an internet addict. I haven’t had a Facebook profile for years and I use very few social media platforms. I kinda knew how the whole thing works and how fake is it and because of that, I thought that I am in control. But then I watched The Social Dilemma (available…

    Four seasons in Amsterdam

    Long story short, my SO and I were in a long distance relationship. He lived in Amsterdam and I visited as often as I could. And this is the sorty of me falling in love with Amsterdam. First of all I’d like to clarify that the past tense is not because we broke up, but because WE MOVED IN TOGETHER. And just now that the stress of moving is behind us and we settled in, I started to realize that I miss Amsterdam. And not just because my partner constantly reminds me how much better it is than Vienna (where we’re living currently). I, also became quiet fond of the…

    September is the new January

    Tips to relax and recharge before the big last hustle of the year kicks in the door. January is all about resolutions and setting goals for the new year but somehow I’m pretty sure no one expected to write “SURVIVE 2020” on the top of that list. We couldn’t even imagine the kind of world we’ll live in by the end of the summer and I think I speak for everyone when I say: “We made it so far, let’s just take a deep breath and pour a glass of fine wine. Of course, it’s easy to feel lost and beaten in a time like this when nothing is certain.…

    I need a break

    Lately, I got into a rut but I thought I can just force myself to run faster than my problems. The reason I write this article is that it didn’t work. I was very keen when I started this project. My knowledge of blogging was little but I was full of ideas and I knew what I wanted. Slowly I got into it, I learned a lot of new things and read a crazy amount of article about blogging. And every time I thought, I got this, some new topic came to my attention and I realized that I still don’t know anything. In the meantime, I was playing in…

    Restart

    Hey beautiful, it’s been a minute! This post will be a little bit personal for more reasons. First of all, because I started my blog in January 2020 and now I am halfway through the year, so there is no better time to take a breath and look back on what I accomplished so far. Second of all, you might have realized that I had to leave my blog for one month but I am finally back and I can’t wait to continue the work! The reason for my absence was that I had exams coming and I take my studies seriously. But also blogging which quickly became my passion.…

    Why I quit caffeine and how it worked out

    Everything about health benefits, methods, and alternatives. And if you saw the title and your first thought was to get a coffee, this is for you. (This post contains affiliate links. That means if you make a purchase after clicking on a link I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.) Let me just say that this wasn’t easy for me. I am the biggest coffee lover of them all. I love(d) everything about coffee, but I was a bit shocked to see, how much I depend on it. The reason I recently realized that I am iron deficiency anemic. Lately, it got so bad, I…

    Pieces of places

    Yep, the day has come when my creative energies became so low that I’m here to share my travel pictures/stories with you. Until now I was okay with the whole quarantine situation, you know I was doing my thing, planning and keeping myself busy… and then one day… bam. Emotional meltdown. I came across a lot of throwback posts from bloggers and couldn’t help but get nostalgic about my own trips. Honestly, I don’t miss the travel, I miss my boyfriend who I travel with. It’s no secret (I mean I bitch about it every time) that we are currently in a distant relationship and Coronavirus hit us hard. The…

    Shop conscious, save money

    Save money, time and energy with some simple tricks. Have you ever seen a dress and thought to yourself you have to buy it immediately? But time passed and you didn’t wear the dress not even once? Yeah, me too. One of my most memorable mistakes was a shiny, metallic, golden pair of jeans (as fabulous as it sounds). It kinda looked like this. (Told you it was fabulous.) Of course the moment I saw it I felt the connection and thought my soul needs this and who am I to deny such pleasures from my own soul? This is pretty much how women feel about high heels. Anyway I…

    WFH: sanity is overrated anyway

    Is it okay just to catch your breath and be a little irresponsible and lazy during quarantine? The COVID-19 came, saw, and rearranged our life quicker than we were able to cough. The most important change for the lucky ones (and I hope they know how truly lucky they are) is the change to home-office. The media reacted quickly and hundreds of articles came out about staying productive and working effectively. The most common tips: wake up early, take a shower, change to daywear. Well I have a different one: Be the chaos. Does anyone try to tell me that I should put on a bra and jeans if I…
