Boozy jelly shots

I have a number of weird little hobbies, and one of them is jelly-shot making. Majority of the parties I’ve thrown would feature some, and for the last couple of New Year Eves, without fail, I’d produce 100+ alcoholic jelly shots.

My Medieval England obsession

My obsession with English medieval history started quite a while back.
I was back home on holiday when I walked into the lounge where my dad was watching The Tudors with an encyclopedia on his lap. He was fact checking the series (as you do!) and pointed out that since I have moved to England, I should probably spend some time getting to know the history of the country.

I mean, I was sold straight away – watch a drama TV series and learn history at the same time –  ideal. That’s when I found out all about Henry VIII, his six poor wives and the English church reformation.

New series you HAVE to watch

If you ask any of my friends whether I am a TV series addict, their answer would probably be ‘Hell yes!’ or ‘When is she going to shut up about yet another series she is watching?’. The nice answer and the honest answer. Ha.

So now I’m taking it to my blog in a hope that someone with as much addiction to good TV series and strong dependence on new episodes and seasons coming out will actually appreciate the post. #highhopes

So, the series you absolutely have to watch is…

Is it time for The Apprentice to evolve?

I always wait for The Apprentice with a lot of anticipation, I have a very soft spot for it. You might say that it’s rubbish, that the candidates are stupid and the show is boring, and that’s your right. But when others enjoy watching Made in Chelsea and religiously follow the Kardashians, I choose TV shows that make me think about what I would have done in specific situations. I’m more interested in finding out who got fired rather than who slept with who.

Dishwasher appreciation post

Dear Dishwasher,

You have no idea how much I appreciate you in my life! I happened to live with one of your relatives for a couple of months, but apart from that time, for the last couple of years I’ve been good friends with the sink,  sponge and Fairy liquid.

Now, things have changed. Now I have you. Now I don’t have to worry about ruining my nails and I save up so much time!
