Quick and easy sweet crispy pastries on a budget!

4th April, 2020
Angel wings - one of my traditional childhood favorite snack up until now. So easy to make. Light, delicious, crispy pastries that I could never get bored of. When growing up, my mum and grandmothers would make plates of massive piles of them for Christmas, Easter or special occasions such as birthdays and family gatherings. In my house, they are a regular thing because we simply love them. Perfect during lockdown where panic buyers clear all the snacks shelves as well as majority of the population forced to live on a budget due to the circumstances.

How to stay sane during lockdown - my daily mental health care routine.

30th March, 2020
Locking the country down, social distancing, sudden deaths of innocent population, not knowing how long it will remain this way for - had a massive impact on a lot of people and their mental health. Anxiety consuming your body from left, right and center, and that's very understandable with everything that has been going on in the past weeks. As humans we are creatures of routine. We always tend to get things done in certain order around same time each day. From waking up, eating breakfast, going to school or work, getting housework and shopping done and so on, it is very natural to become anxious about the changes that recently took place all around the country and worldwide, not to mention not being able to see your loved ones on top of it. The only way to overcome this feeling and be in control of your thoughts, body and your approach at this moment, is the correct mindset.

My easy step by step guide to meditation for beginners.

29th March, 2020
When I first introduced meditation into my lifestyle over two years ago, I truly underestimated the power of it. It taught me and benefited me a lot more than I could have ever imagine. I've learned to trust my mind and body enough to let go of any tension and stress, slow and deep breathing became natural and meditation began to play a massive part in my life. It is now something I really look forward to every day. In my step by step meditation guide I will walk you through it making it easier to understand and perform...

Fun acivities for your children during quarantine!

22nd March, 2020
In the upcoming weeks ahead majority of our bundles of joy will be spending each and every single day indoors due to nurseries and schools been shut down, which doesn't have to be boring at all. I don't know about your child, but my almost 3 year old daughter who owns more toys than I could have ever only dreamed of as a kid, hardly ever plays with any of them and if she does it won't last long. Here is a list of fun and creative games and activities that we have came across on the internet and tested out ourselves. Hours of creative fun without any toys involved.

How I managed to naturally reduce and control labour pains - my 2nd labour story.

20th February, 2020
Let's skip the introduction and all of the unnecessary part and dive right into it. My second labour was at least 50% less stressful and painful than my first one... All thanks to natural ways I haven't even necessarily practiced before hand. I'm a firm believer of law of attraction and the power of our minds. The plan was to use my mind skills when my labour began and contractions kicked in. Did I stick to it? Yes - and it was certainly one of the best decisions of my life which made things run easily and progress much quicker.

Our toddler's room tour.

2nd February, 2020
The response on our children room across our social media platforms is insane every time I post it. It's just a cute little interior full of toys and colours! Nothing too special - but very special to me. I never planned what this room will actually look like. It all happened very spontaneously and randomly. We've been through at least 20 different ball pits within the last year... From cats popping it with their claws to upgrading to a bigger size (more soft balls), and simply me - the mother, getting bored of the current pool wanting to change things up for my baby. If only this room was a little bit bigger... Ahh, the things I'd do to it and items I'd purchase, my head is full of amazing ideas. I love this place and I'm so very grateful to give my children the room they deserve and love. This room is a reflection of all I wanted as a young child.

Peri-peri chicken one pot.

22nd January, 2020
Since having a newborn I am all about one pot dinners. Tell a lie - I've always preferred them. Saves me washing up more pots and pans later !! Quicker to serve and easier to consume. What an extremely lazy intro, but I'm sure you feel my pain. I'm not no professional chef here, however when I create a dish that hits the spot I will 100% share it with you because why not.. Easy, quick and sooo delicious. Let's get right into it..

Christmas tree in our toddler's bedroom.

This year I decided to buy my little girl who's 2 and a half, her first very own Christmas tree. Not only did she enjoy putting it up and decorating it with me, it also cosied up her room enough to encourage her to play in it more often, as she's normally downstairs in the living room with me. She absolutely enjoyed the entire process from the start to finish line. We headed over to town, to shop for decorations for her and she picked the most amazing pieces. Overall this was one of the most fun and creative activities we have done together, and of course - very bonding.

Butter bean tomato soup with polish sausage.

21st November, 2019
I'm all about quick and easy meals. Cooking certainly isn't my favourite thing to do if I'm honest. And of course due to that, 1 pot meals are life savers to me. Check out this ridiculously simple family recipe that tastes absolutely amazing, and it's sooo filling. One of my favs since childhood days... And I never realised how easy it is to make it until I made it myself for the first time. This dish can be served on it's own, with bread or chapattis!

My favourite and affordable kitchen gadgets !!

15th November, 2019
I'm here today with a quick post dedicated to my kitchen, finally - as it's normally about Christianna's room lol !! I have been loving these gadgets for many months. My kitchen might not be perfect to some but it truly is to me. I feel so grateful to finally have my own place and be able to decorate it and do it up just the way I've always wanted to. It means the world. Last month I celebrated our 1st whole year of moving into our home and treated myself, and our home to some new bits and bobs. I want to change up few things, such us the curtains in each room but we will talk about this another time.. Let's dig right into it..
