City of Girls: A Novel

My review of City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert, a vibrant tale about life, love, sex, and New York City that's long gone, but its magic still enchants many. City of Girls is a story told by Vivian, who is an older woman now. But she was once a young girl, considered a bit too unconventional by her … Continue reading City of Girls: A Novel

Missing London: in the shadow of Brexit and pandemic.

Initially, I wanted to wrap 2020 up in the last post, but last year was honestly something else, so I figured it does deserve some proper closure. The following post is mostly about the first half of last year and about living in London during the first lockdown. Of course, the situation in London (and … Continue reading Missing London: in the shadow of Brexit and pandemic.

Importance of kindness, and other thoughts on 2020

For someone who claims they love writing, I surely don't tire myself out. But every year, I get a sudden struck of inspiration- I guess I'm really into that new year, new me thingy. Except that this year was nothing like ordinary, so I suddenly realized my list is not going to be ordinary either. … Continue reading Importance of kindness, and other thoughts on 2020

Little habits to improve my every day routine

Well, first of all, it has been ages since the last time I've posted! I'm not proud of myself, but the work has been crazy, and I was quite busy, and oh, the time flies!

Oat flakes cake

Also known as "the muesli cake", it's one of my Mom's signature bakings and also one of everyone's favorites.

Best beauty products of 2017

When it comes to shopping, my life is a constant fight between me wanting to have all those pretty things and me knowing that I have neither enough money nor space to fit in all of my hypothetical goods (but to be honest, I think that's most of us, really). As consequence, I usually end … Continue reading Best beauty products of 2017

Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask- Lavender

I've already written about my love for Garnier tissue masks here. I adore the "classic" blue one since the first time I tried it, and I'm also obsessed with the pink chamomile mask, so when I saw a new, lavender one, I just went crazy. I mean...lavender face mask. It's like we are meant to be!😄 There's nothing … Continue reading Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask- Lavender

Colours of Autumn, Pictures of Home

I've just come back from holidays, and what can I say, there's no place like home! (Which, in my case, is Kielce, a city in Poland.) I've had the most amazing time with my family, and even though it was just one week, I feel like so much has happened. We also had lovely weather … Continue reading Colours of Autumn, Pictures of Home

Soap and Glory Speed Plump All-Day Super Moisture Marvel

Wow, that is a long name! Soap and Glory are, by far, one of my favorite brands.

Dedicated for dry and dehydrated skin, enriched with watermelon extract, hyaluronic acid, … Continue reading Soap and Glory Speed Plump All-Day Super Moisture Marvel

Lemon curd and coconut muffins

As I've probably mentioned earlier, I'm not a big fan of cooking, but I love making cakes and cupcakes and all kinds of desserts. Sometimes it takes me a while- or a couple of weeks- to pick up myself and bake something, but when it finally occurs, I enjoy doing it. The inspiration came from … Continue reading Lemon curd and coconut muffins
