Why we shouldn't give up on our dreams


Since, I came back from our holiday (to my home country), I have been struggling concentrating and working on my posts. I have a list of topics I want to write about, but I just can’t come around to sit and transfer my thoughts onto the “white paper”. Something is just missing and I am… just not the same… 

I started this blog thanks to my amazing partner and his incredible support and belief in me and my abilities. He was the one to “plant the seed” in my head and carefully water it for a few months. How he got so determined to do so… The answer lies somewhere between September and December, 2013 - my third trimester of the pregnancy and also the months which I spend retaking a semester at University.

When life takes us on unexpected journeys


There are those little or big things you wish for, every time before bed, or every time you wake up, or simply when you see them happening to other people. You might wish for a passionate love, great job or a friend (the cool mother from the baby class, who speaks to everyone, knows everything and has remembered your baby’s name straight away!)... The list is long. What about when your wish suddenly comes true, but it’s nothing that you have expected and actually, disappoints you? Sadly, it can be a true story.

Sunday's Kitchen: Mushroom Frittata with Cherry Tomatoes and Basil


Not long ago I shared with you a new cooking gem that we found, called Healing Foods. We are still discovering the book, but my excitement hasn't vanished just yet. I love the amazing facts that the book reveals and all of the so-irresistible-looking recipes. And on top of that, they are all healthy! I deffinitely recommend it to every household, where it should be kept as a guide to improve your health through food. If you feel like your body constantly needs something extra, Healing Foods may contain the answer.

Weaning Continues and Chicco Happy Snack Highchair Review


Weaning has been on our agenda for quite some time now, and not surprisingly - it is really a big and important step. Also, a very confusing one! It is true that loads of help and information is available, but nothing becomes really clear until you finally started doing it yourself! We began our journey a month ago (you can follow some of our experiences chronologically HereHere and Here) but the real deal started just now, when our highchair arrived. And what a chair, I couldn't be more pleased with our purchase and I am going to tell you why in a very short while!

Sunday's Kitchen: Mushroom Risotto Sprinkled with Parmesan and Soy Sauce


This week's dish is again inspired by the summer and it is a light, delicious and very easy meal to cook. Apparently, the Mushroom Risotto has become one of my mum's new specialties and she treated us to it, during our holiday (2 Weeks with my Family). 

2 Weeks


Undoubtedly, the good times pass so fast and I am once more typing from the keyboard of my laptop and reminiscing about the heartwarming moments I just recently spent with my family. I am already used to coming and going, but even after 4 years of separation and reuniting with my other half of loved ones, it still feels like the first time. The first time I went away in search of my happiness. And 4 years later I found it, in the smile of my little boy, who just met his mum's family for the first time.

A short summary of an eventful week and a Sunday's Refreshing Homemade Lemonade



It has been a while, actually it seems like it has been ages, since the last post, but it has been such an eventful week during which we crossed some BIG ticks from the "have to experience list"!
