Out of Comfort Zone

July 29, 2016

My first explanations is that I cannot be so perfect. This is immediately followed by an embarrassment and eagerness to change the subject as soon as possible. The truth is I never needed it so much to make me sign up for driving lessons. However,…

CAREER – REMEMBER THIS

July 27, 2016

Some decisions are better than others, and there are the right ones.  When you are looking at your career or even considering switching professions there will be thousands of moments requiring bold decisions.

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.

The Portuenses have a strong and defined personality, agressive at times but that is only part of the…

On Routine

May 8, 2016

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…

Marvelous Neutrals

April 17, 2016

I am massive fun of neutral colors – they are quiet and modest. Although I sometimes indulge myself in orange and raspberry red, the beauty of marvellous neutrals speaks for itself. It is the simplicity that is so beautiful. Natural colors do not call attention to themselves and know no season. If there is a good piece of clothing you are ready to invest in – I recommend you go for any of these timeless colors – white, beige, grey,…
