Weekend Inspiration / Community

January 15, 2017

If you follow me on social media (if not, I recommend you do as it would make me very happy) you might have noticed that I recently became a mother. As with almost any project I embark on (isn’t it rude to call pregnancy a project?) I like to do a little research so that the unknown turns into less unknown. I would usually pick up few books here and there and so I did on parenting. Make sure you…

Weekend Away / Porto, Portugal

July 10, 2016

Porto is a fantastic city. It is typically overcast, some people do not like it, but I love its ‘dramatic and serious’ look as Rui Veloso puts it. Imposing, melancholic, even sad… but elegant. Full of class and history. It is the ‘invicta’ city as it was never invaded nor conquered and that fills the ‘Portuenses’ (Porto people) with pride and haughtiness. The Portuenses have a strong and defined personality, agressive at times but that is only part of the…

On Routine

May 8, 2016

Routine. Some of us loathe it some of us like it. I am definitely belong to the latter group. I like my life structured with reasonable standard deviation. I like to stick to the known so I can embark on exploring the unknown. Routine is like a foundation for me – it prepares me mentally and physically for next challenges.  You may have already realised that I was extremely busy due to the total lack of posts here but here…

Certainty

February 7, 2016

I am currently on the search and a mission to simplify my wardrobe. I want to re-vamp it in a way which would ease the masochistic decision-making process I go through every day. Not only I decided to edit my office attire but also my out-of-office wardrobe. I mean why do I need to look like a homeless since with small adjustments I can enjoy a fresh look during the weekends. I started with jeans. Black pair of classic Lee.…

The Art of Tidying

January 24, 2016

Sunday morning – such a bliss. Coffee freshly brewed, computer on and sun is shining. Considering London is one of the most gloomy and dark city I have ever lived in (expect Sweden) I have a good reason to celebrate. The whole week however was rather sunless. If not the daily workout and a few coffees a day (by now you may have realised I live on coffee) I would have fallen asleep standing. Nevertheless, yesterday while sipping (another!) latte…
