How to Find Your Personal Hygge?

I finally purchased this amazing The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living! Of course, I missed everything, it became a bestseller two years ago but I dived into my motherhood so deeply that I missed everything including this amazing book I am reading now. So, hyggie book … what this book is about? Candles, lighting and knitted socks with reindeer? Is this a comprehensive receipt for a happiness? Some of my friends think this book is shallow, like, come on, we are not Danish and our life is hard and hectic, nor reindeer neither homemade bread will make our life easier.

Spring 2018 Home Decor Must Have List

Yaaaay! Spring is finally here! Easter Bunnies are everywhere, the sun is shining, the sky is getting clean and clear blue, nature renovates its decoration and so do we. It is beautiful time when suddenly you stop and look at the sky,  the air is still cold with a mild but persistent and promising smell of changes; time for new hopes, new plans, and new beginnings. It is also a great time to add a gentle spring touch to our homes.

How to Recharge Your Energy When You Feel Exhausted

It is a middle of February. Christmas mood is gone and there are at least two months until the real spring. Outside is below zero. Energy is below zero. How to survive until summer and recharge your energy? Everything I have found searching for some useful recommendations was: fall in love with yourself or be healthier/fitter/stronger… And it is good. But I want to talk about inspiration. Being a stay at home mom and having same day routine every day very easy to lose inspiration elsewhere between the endless laundry and sleepless nights. When I feel exhausted, my family feels it as well. So it is not just me suffering but people I love. Therefore I always try to find ways to switch the grumpy mode into something more positive.

This is what helps me to stay motivated, all of the below methods are very simple and do not require any investment, even going out.

Easy Clear Skin Diet To Try Now

After I left cosmetologist last time and left 170 Euro as well, I decided that I am exhausted.

I am tired to buy expensive care treatments for problem skin. I am tired of visiting cosmetologist every three weeks,  of trying new exfoliation product, new “amazing” moisturizer, new “super effective” facial mask new whatever. I think I tried everything and still,  I am not happy with results.

So I understood I have to change something. I know that I use high-quality skin care products, so this is not the reason. I know that my cosmetic is perfectly compatible with my oily and problem skin. So the last thing I had to deal with (frankly, it had to be the first thing of course) was changing my food habits.

After doing some research I developed super easy diet plan, I want to share with you:

How to Decorate Rented Apartment to Feel Like Home

When you move every several years you start missing home… This relaxed feeling of being surrounded by your favorite things, knowing the places for everything, light and a scent of your lovely home. Once it was a lot of fun for me, to furnish and decorate new place every time we moved, but when you move every two years it became a painful routine. In the beginning, I spent a LOT of time planning and matching, I just felt I have to change everything to create a comfortable atmosphere, and these changes cost a fortune every time. Fortune I obviously did not have, not to mention it was not the best investment. Therefore, after N-th move I made a list of several things that would cost less than $300, and most of them can be purchased online and the main thing: they really make you feel like home.

5 Minutes for Gorgeous Hair

I have very special relationships with my hair. I can give up on an outfit, makeup, or nails but not on my hair, it is the must. When I have clean, healthy, good-looking hair I just feel beautiful. The only problem is that since I became a mom, I have approximately five minutes to pamper my hair. All these two-hours-DIY-masks are not for me, as well as going to professionals to take care of my hair. I just do not have time for it.

So, what I did in this post, I just gathered some advice and products I use to keep my hair beautiful and healthy.

5 Small Lifestyle Changes With a Big Impact

The day-to-day choices you make influence your health and your mood. All of us want to have a healthier and happier life, but even if want to change something in our lifestyle, it requires more than one day. I believe that it is easier to start from small things which create our daily routine. Here is the list of simple strategies:

How to Grow a Minimalist Wardrobe During Maternity Leave?

It appears maternity leave is a perfect time to declutter your closet without stress and start enjoy owning fewer things. During my maternity leave,  I used to wear only five things from my huge closet: a gray cotton t-shirt, a pair of black jeans, soft hoodie, a pair of sneakers and a leather jacket – these were all my clothes during first months of my maternity leave. Of course, I did not go to the office so I could afford myself a very simple look, but even if I would multiply this modest outfit by five or by ten, my wardrobe was far more crowded.

All skinny and tight clothes annoyed me, as well as all polyester things that felt as if I was wearing a plastic bag. I was dreaming about a monochrome and classic minimal wardrobe (well, this is not true, I was dreaming about some extra sleep hours actually) with natural fabrics – linen, cotton and wool clothes, so this was a great opportunity to get rid of all strange yellow and pink plastic dresses.
