Book Of The Month and Beauty Video Inspiration

The book of the month is definitely Sophia Amoruso’s #GIRLBOSS.  I saw that some of my on-line friends were reading & loving  it, so I’ve decided to give it a go myself. As I am writing this, I’ve read 63%, it is a page-turner, and is easy to read. #GirlBoss is not really about the tips on how to build your business but rather Sophia’s life-story, her experience, and her opinion on certain things; the book is written in a sincere  and entertaining way. GirlBoss book Sophia Amoruso makeup4all #GirlBoss is very inspiring, and I love the fact that it’s about being true to yourself and your identity, and that you don’t have to follow the common path to

Makeup for Little Girls, Would You Get It?

I guess we all have a special little girl in our life,  it may be our daughter, niece, sister, cousin or just someone we know.

In my life – it’s my precious cousin Sophia whom I adore.

And since the holidays are approaching, I totally want to spoil her with a beautiful present.  A beauty related present would be awesome as we could have fun together, me with my ‘grown -up’ makeup and Sophia  with her set for little girls.

Luckily these days there are a lot of beauty products formulated for little girls so they don’t have to ‘borrow’ their Mum’s makeup as we once did.

She looks a bit different now and her hair is so much longer but that’s the newest set of photos I have. She adores lip glosses and nail polishes.

This is why the TownleyGirl press release I’ve got the other day really caught my attention.

They offer a cruelty-free and non toxic ‘makeup’ range for little girls. They have so many different sets: Nickelodeon Victorious, Sanrio Hello Kitty, Disney Princess,  Disney Fairies and Nickelodeon  Dora The Explorer make-up kits.

Clean And Lean Diaries. Part 3: Week 2. Impressions.

I was very happy that so many of you liked Part 1 of my Clean and Lean experience.  And thank you for contacting me on Twitter and via e-mail, but don’t be shy leaving your comments here, as well 🙂

This time it won’t be so detailed, as there were only four new dishes, that I haven’t featured before.

This week it took less time to prepare everything because I already knew how to cook most dishes, plus I have already bought almost all the ingredients, and organized everything. So I had to make only few grocery shopping trips, to buy some fresh fish or berries. And, yes, I did have free time this week.

At this point I really got used to such schedule, and didn’t miss or crave anything, like in the first week. I love how everything is organized, and I don’t have to worry about anything: what to buy for dinner, where to eat lunch etc.

Unfortunately, I had some major health issues (which I still need to take care of), so I did end up eating an ice cream to cheer myself up, which was cheating, obviously.  Other than that, I enjoyed most of the meals a lot.

Speaking of ice-cream, that was probably the only thing that I really missed. Any other food? Maybe potatoes, as I love baked, roasted or mashed potatoes, mmm.

Here is the meal plan:

Ins and Outs. November 2010

This is just a post in which I’d love to share the things that I’ve been loving and not this month. I hope you will enjoy it 🙂

Pasta and spaghetti with wine.

Both in restaurants and at home. I’ve made the one you can see on the photo.

Films with Romola Garai.

She is my inspiration of November, post on this coming soon.

FCUK ‘Whatever” T-shirt.

Whatever is like one of my favourite words. I love this t-shirt a lot.

Jonathan Ward Candle in Dance in Summer Rain.

Do you remember my post about the candles? So many people told me to get the Jonathan Ward London candle, so I did. It’s an amazing candle that makes your room full of divine scent and you don’t have to burn it for hours. The price is £20 and they ship Worlwide.

Photo Of The Weekend. January 19th 2014

This photo was not taken today, so I am cheating a bit, but did not get a chance one take it today, my camera battery is dead right now.

Here is a pair shoes – my red flowery Dr. Martens, they are among my favourites, and they  always get tonnes of compliments, by the way.

Dr. martens red shoes

So why am I posting shoes you may ask? The reason for that is simple, I’ve been walking a lot lately. I try to walk for at least ah hour every day, often it’s to the places that
