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.
As millions of others around the world, I felt bitter this morning when I read the news – Donald Trump is the new USA president.
It was a similar feeling to the 24th of June when Brexit results were announced – when you’re convinced that people know better (at least in your opinion) and then get a huge disappointment when faced with the reality.
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.
For our eight year anniversary Ben took me to Paris. Eight years together turned into something much more romantic and important to celebrate. We got engaged.
On the 26th of September, at 8 am, Ben dragged me out of bed to have a photo shoot. If you know me well, you can imagine how delighted I was at the prospect (if you don’t, follow me on Instagram:))
We met the photographer at Trocadero just when the sun was rising. Zero tourists, just other couples with other photographers – the place has got the view!
I’m sure that at least once every one of you felt like your life was a mess. Too much work, illnesses, overload with extra curriculum activities and household responsibilities, as well as partying a bit too much can make you feel like you’ve hit the rock bottom.
So how do you climb out? Continue reading “When your life is a mess.”
I think it’s about time I started blogging again and what is a better topic than telling you guys all about the amazing holiday I’ve just came back from??!
Ben and I went to Crete – a beautiful Greek island. We found an amazing deal on Thomas Cook that was definitely more than worth it. Continue reading “When Ben and Polina went to Crete”
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…
I wouldn’t have thought that I would be the ambassador of a TV series produced by 50 cents, but it’s. just. too. good. Continue reading “New series you HAVE to watch”
As George Osborne unveiled the Budget, one topic caught my attention immediately – the introduction of a new sugar tax on the soft drinks.
The tax is aimed at high-sugar fizzy drinks – the majority of soft drinks that you would get in a ‘meal deal’ or use as a mixer with alcohol. Continue reading “I couldn’t be happier about sugar tax”
