How to choose a good avocado?

Most of you probably know how important is this fruit in our diet. For some of you who don’t I decided to write a short post.

First of all fresh California Avocados are sodium and cholesterol-free and contain unsaturated fats. When used instead of other fats, avocados can be a satisfying addition to a calorie-reduced diet. Avocados are included in dietary programs from some of the world’s leading nutrition organizations.

One-fifth of a medium avocado has 50kcal and contributes nearly 20 viatamins and minerals, making it a nutrient-dense food choice.

Today I have bought 2 avocados. I managed to buy them very cheap although it makes me very mad that it’s so hard to find an edible fruit. They are often hard and need to wait a few days more at home.  I must admit, I ate it for the first time when it was completely raw, hard and it tasted like a grass. Lots of months had passed before I made up my mind to buy it again.
Only ripe avocados without discolorations are suitable to eat. The fruit should be soft, the skin dark and flesh yellow.

I hope it will help you!


Green Coffee Supplement: My Impressions

After trying green coffee extract for weight loss for a little over 5 weeks, I have to say I’m disappointed. I lost almost no weight though I never missed a pill, not to mention I’ve been eating pretty light dishes because of the summery weather. I can’t say I recommend it, though I do know people who swear by the stuff. I suppose every person’s body reacts differently to different substances… Oh well, I tried.


Outfit for a friend’s wedding

Hi everyone! I didn’t think that such a little cat can be so time-consuming. Just like a small child ;) But at last I have found some time to write a post about my small problem.


In July I’m going to a friend’s wedding (finally!). I’m so happy to go there and see the most important moment in my friend’s life! The whole ceremony will take place in a beautiful and really modern hotel.  There will be almost 150 people attending, so you can guess that the party is going to be huuuuuuge.

I’m only worried about one thing. What should I wear? You know that I like everything that is connected with fashion, but this time I have no idea for my dress… The first question actually is: dress or pant suit? Remember that everything will be very modern… No matter whether it will be a dress or pantsuit, I don’t seem to have ANYTHING appropriate in my wardrobe. I need to go shopping. But recently, before I go shopping, I’ve gotten into the habit of doing some research to check some shops’ websites to see if there’s anything nice and not waste time later on. Remember – time is money ;)

I know only one thing, It should be something in bright and vibrant – the wedding is, after all, in the middle of  the summer.

So in the end I found a few really interesting outfits.

Our new little girl

Sorry I didn’t write so long but I had so much to do. I’ll try to fix that ;)

Like every child, my little daughter has always wanted a pet. My husband and I were waiting for the perfect time to adopt one. We decided, after reading hundreds of articles, that a cat will be the best for us and of course for our little honey. I believe that adopting, instead of buying, poor sad homeless animals is one of the ways of healing the world. So we went to the animal shelter to find our new family member. I was shocked that there are so many homeless animals! At one point, I even thought about adopting  more than one cat…. But my husband wouldn’t be happy with that at all.

We focused on one little kitty, she was rather shy but so cute and funny in some strange way ;) Her story is sad, as she lost her mum and she was nearly died of malnutrition. Some people found her in a basement and helped her.

We went home and prepared everything for Isis (we called her Isis ;)). We bought her everything what she’d need e.g. a little basket to sleep in, a scratching post.

At that time our daughter was at her granny’s, and we wanted to surprise her. We realized that having a pet is her dream, so everything had to be perfect!

Isis is going to bed down in our daughter’s room. Now, she has to understand that having a kitty is a huge responsibility and of course she’ll be taking care of Isis. This is really important, because in fact it is her cat.







Isn’t she cute ? :)














Last summer we have spent in Antalya, Turkey. In the beginning I was quite scared to go there because our daughter was young that time (not mentioning she is a blonde). My husband convinced me to go there. And after all I can’t say any bad word about this place…


We have decided to plan this trip by ourselves, to not use any travel agency. I know it can be more risky but also … cheaper. We have book a plane tickets and hotel via Internet. My husband called the hotel to make sure that everything is all right.


We have spent in Antalya 2 weeks. The best thing about this place … the weather is guaranteed! I was sunbathing all the time until I got a beautiful suntan. My girl finally learned how to swim. She was so happy there!!!


Turkish people turned to be so nice and with so great sense of humor! That was one of our best holidays ever!


Anyway, before going there we have read really useful travel tips( ).Thanks to this you can easily know how to cooperate with people over there to not get into any troubles!!!







Yesterday took my little girl to the cinema. It’s been a long time since I had such a good time watching a film for children! And the animation was done incredibly well. The 3D effects were breathtaking! I looked at those two princesses and I felt … jealous! Can you imagine? Wow, are those girls ever beautiful!

I actually think fairytales are good for little girls to teach them a bit about how cruel the world can be… and how blind love can be.

Another thing, though—it seems nowadays animated movies are more for adults than for children. Many of the jokes are too hard for children to understand. In the cinema, mostly only the adults were laughing. It’s a bit sad that children now can’t really enjoy the animated movies that were in fact made for them…

wedding anniversary

We are going to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary. We want to have a big party. I know 7 years is not a lot but I know a Chinese saying that the 3rd year and the 7th year are always the hardest. If a couple withstands 3 and later 7 years together, there is bigger chance they will be together forever.

That’s why we want to invite our family and close friends to spend this time with us. We have been preparing for this party for a long time. One year ago, we started to prepare our own liqueurs for our guests. Recently, we bought bottles of wine and some juices for the children. I also found a US company, that produces labels for all sorts of beverages. I think Bottle Your Brand’s products are pretty cute. Have any of my readers used this company? If so, can you tell me your opinions? I’ve read that many people praise them but I want to be sure.

My mum promised to help me with the cooking and baking because we need a lot of food. We are also planning to hire a babysitter to take care of the children and organize some games for them. My friend recently did something like this and it turned out really well, with both the kiddies and the grownups having fun.

I hope everything goes well.


Do you have some experiences with organizing an anniversary party? Do you have any tips for me?


Getting slim

So I went on a diet. I decided to start this year with the resolution to lose weight.  I don’t want mess up my family’s habits so I decided to cook for myself. My family and I have never had bad habits. Now, I just want to eat often to speed up my metabolism. I know how imporant it is in buring calories. So, of course I must give up eating sweets…

Waking up at 5 a.m., sweating my butt off at the gym, carrying all sorts of heavy things to work – all of these things aren’t as tough as not being able to eat one small piece of chocolate. Especially if you have daughter at home, who is as big a fan of sweets as her mum. But my adoring husband decided to surprise me and bought us a sushi set.

Today, we tried to prepare our first sushi – it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! Unfortunately, our daughter told us she would not eat raw fish…

Happy New Year!!!

Hi sweethearts! Nice to be with you here again in 2014!
The party we went to was great! I hadn’t had that much fun in ages! I drank and ate so much! Now, of course, it’s high time to start watching out for my weight. I’ve already made a New Year’s resolution! I want to lose 7 kilos and be a trim and fit 34-year-old mum.

My friend and I have already got out gym membership, and we’ve decided to go every day before work. My husband said we’re crazy… Maybe, maybe. He is laughing now, but I’m sure he’ll stop chuckling and appreciate the results in the end.


That’s our target!


New Year’s Eve outfit

This year we are finally going to celebrate New Year’s Eve out of our home. Our daughter is staying at her grandparents’ home after Christmas so we can make some plans for party. All the mums out there know what I’m talking about! It’s been such a long time since I’ve been out with my husband—just the two of us, I mean. Not to mention going to a party… Finally, here’s my chance to feel like I’m back at university again! The problem, of course, is that I don’t know what I should wear. It won’t be any big ball,  but just a small party at my friends’ home.

I’ve already found some outfits. Alight ladies, please, make the decision for of me!
