    Thessaloniki: What I did, What I Brought and What I Bought

    As you may have read in my April favourites, we went to Thessaloniki at the end of April. It is super close, just under 300km away, so we went there by car. This post is not going to be a travel guide or anything like that, just because I cannot tell you where to go or what to see. I am not the type of person to goес to museums and landmarks on my first visit of a new place, because I prefer to experience a city as a local, not as a tourist. That being said, here’s my experience: How did we get there?  We drove by car. It…

    The Non-Glam Products in my Daily Routine

    We all read about the glam routines – the stunning highlighter, the boujie clothes, the brunches… Which is why I wanted to give the spotlight to the less glamorous things. Why not share about my favourite toothbrush, or my favourite razor? If these things help my daily routine in some way, then why shouldn’t I share them with the world? If it could be useful for someone, why not. I can think of a lot of these products, but because I don’t want this post to be too long, I will share only a few. I may make another one of these in the future, let me know if you would…

    3 Things Successful People Do Differently and Why I Don’t Follow Them

    Lately I have been seeing so many blogposts and articles about what successful people do differently than non-successful people. How they wake up super early to meditate and have breakfast, they spend their Sundays planning for the week ahead, they workout on the regular and eat healthy, and so on and so forth. Here is why I don’t do those things.  Eating healthy and planning your meals is all fun and games, but life happens, and I am okay with it. I mean, yes, whenever I can, I would opt for homemade food (as long as we can think of something because we live in a constant “What should we have…

  • 8 Things My Mom Taught Me

    It was almost a year since the last time I was home when I went to visit in November. Nostalgia hit me and I started thinking about the things I have taken for granted. I started thinking about all of the things my parents have told me that I have just shrugged off with a nonchalant “ugh, parents”. Now that I look back, I realise that they were right all along. This is just a short list of the things my momma said to me, or I have seen her do; things that I have always taken with a light hand and it is only in the last couple of years that I…

  • ’18 Beauty and Fashion Resolutions

    ​​SMXLL Happy new year   It is that time of the year again. The time of the year when everyone decides that starting now they will change their life. Everyone will become their healthiest and best self. For the 24 years I have spent on this planet I have found that nothing starts with a Monday, a beginning of a month, or a beginning of a year. So I have decided that I will not try to be a health guru all at once, but instead I will slowly gain progress and by the end of the year I will be able to say that yes, I got better at these things. I might even make a check-in in…

  • Are Christmas Gift Guides Over?

    I recently stumbled upon a WordPress post (sorry, I don’t remember the blog. Let me know if you know it so I can credit them accordingly!) asking if Christmas gift guides are over. And I have been thinking about this ever since.   I find that every year, each blogger or website post extensive Christmas gift guides – for parents, grandparents, beauty junkies, fashionistas, tech lovers, vegans and so on and so forth. But are they helpful? How many of you have found the information in such gift guides actually useful? Have any of you clicked on such a guide with the idea ‘I don’t know what to buy my…

  • 5 Things I Have Stopped Buying to Avoid Clutter

    Minimalism. The world has started shifting to a much more minimalistic approach to life. With movements like Freeganism (living a cost-free life by garbage-surfing and borrowing from friends) and people turning to zero-waste living, the human race has started taking control over keeping the planet litter-free. But although we clean our wardrobes, homes and lives, what do we do to avoid gaining the said clutter? Below are the things I have stopped buying in order to live a more minimal life and, let’s face it, cut on the tidying time at home. ~~~ Минимализъм. Светът започна да се изменя и да подхожда доста по-минималистично към живота. С движения като Фриганизъм…
