• I’m HERE

    I am HERE. And it feels like I’ll always be HERE. For you. For them. For the others. Sometimes it feels that I’m not HERE for me. Although I know I’m happy, the way I change every day scares me. I’m growing. Older with each day. And I’m not special. I thought I was that special person for you. But the days, months and years are passing as fast as the leaves are thrown in the air by the wind. And with each passing day. I’m losing my trust in your words. I’m HERE. And I’ll always be for them. But I wonder how long I’ll be HERE for you……

  • What is that makes us happy?

    I often wonder this…and I am sure that you wonder that too… Over the last 10 years I learned that being in a certain place does not makes us happier necessarily. However, being surrounded by the your family and the people you love does have that effect. Being happy is being able to know what you love and fill your life with what you love. Being happy doesn’t depend on the material things. Of course, being wealthy can certainly help but how many rich people we know that are still unhappy despite having millions. Being happy for me is being happy with who I am despite the way people around…

    11 Smart Ways To Prepare Your Home For Winter

    It’s just the start of November here and the temperature already dropped to 8-10C during the day and 2-4C during the night. The heating went on over a week ago as well as the floors were getting quite cold during the night already and as the girls spend a lot of time on the floor playing this was a must. I was hoping that the autumn winter will stay a little longer as I absolutely love autumn weather but I wasn’t that lucky this year…But hey let’s forget the autumn blues! We need to really prepare for winter! I mean my hubby is most of the time away and my…

  • My dream winter home

    The winter holidays are approaching and there’s a lot of thinking in our home at the moment. Now that we have a car to take us around we really want to spend holidays again somewhere where is proper winter. Living in the south of the country it means that we don’t always get snow for Christmas or if we do that is not as much as you would get in the mountains. The girls really enjoyed being able to jump into big snow and sleigh on proper snow. I know I am an adult now and I should not dream at things that are impossible to achieve but I do.…

  • Thoughtful gifts for new mums

    One of my friends had a baby recently and I have to admit that I struggled to find something suitable to buy for her. Of course I bought little gifts – a brush and some clothes – for her daughter but besides flowers I couldn’t think of anything else to get her.

FLOWERS I love having flowers in my home. And I think all women are the same. And when you just given birth and you receive…

  • Working at home VS working away

    Working at home VS working away

    It’s not the first time I am talking on this blog about my working status. You all know by now that for the past 4 years I’ve been at home looking after my two daughters and for the past two years i’ve mostly earned my living by working as a Freelance Digital/Social Media Manager. I am very lucky to be able to be around all the time for my girls especially when their dad is away most of the time. To be able to earn a little bit extra it’s just perfect as it lets me spoil and save a little for our future. However, I do sometimes miss getting…

    How to raise bilingual kids

    If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know that my girls are bilingual. Obviously, I am Romanian but their daddy is English so although we don’t live in England anymore I am trying as much as I can to teach my girls about their home country as well. They were both born at St’ George’s Hospital in Wandsworth, London. Miss K lived half her life in London and half in my hometown and if you ask her what nationality she is she will always say: “First english, than Romanian”. For my youngest, Miss A things are a little bit different you see. At first she looks puzzled…
