Summer lunch...

There is lots of food on Istagram, sometimes I feel like one of Pavlov's dog. My mouth is watering when I am looking at other foodie pictures. 

I have to say, I am feeling a little jealous, all the yummy food, freshly prepared in the finest restaurants and coffee shops. I decided to share my lunch inspiration....

So, my summer lunch on a budget is eggs with spinach, a fruit plate and ice coffee. Who needs Starbucks and expensive restaurants anyway?

Mexico 2015



Tulum beach

I am very much European oriented and most of my holidays have been taken in Europe, so when my partner suggest to me a holiday in Mexico I was sceptical. I had not heard much about Mexico apart for Chichen Itza and I read a little about the Mayan civilisation but that was it. As you see I am not a very adventurous person, that's why my lovely BF got me a package holiday.
I have to say that we had excellent time and package holidays have a huge advantage for me, because I am such a lazy person. We flew to Cancun with Thomson airlines and stayed in the Riviera Maya in Grand Sirenis Resort and Spa.
The advantage of a package holiday is everything is taken care of. The transfer, the food, the hotel, and what particularly worked for us was that we could book trips to visit Chitzen Itza and Coba. I have to admit that the trips were every well organised, we were supplied with plenty of refreshments and provided with professional guides who gave us plenty of information about the Mayan's and their culture.
One of our adventures was to explore the world outside our hotel. We took trips to the nearby towns such as Playa del Carmen and Tulum. The travel was very easy, we used local transport Collectivos which are small privately owned minibuses. Information about Collectivos was available in our hotel. My favourite was Tulum and its amazing beach. I could stay on that beach all day.
After visiting Tulum we decided to be more adventurous and we took trip to Cozumel on the ferry. The ferry are leaving from Playa del Carmen every hour.
The other place near to our hotel was Akumal, a small beach-front village where you can hire diving equipment and swim with turtles.
Mexico was brilliant it has tasty food, hot sunny weather and friendly people. If you are deciding to go for holiday I can recommend Mexico.

Life happens...

Life happens, when you least expect it. You are planning a rosy future and suddenly your plans are destroyed by circumstances. A few months ago I had lot of plans for my blog but life happened, my priorities changed and I had to deal with more important issues. I went against all the rules like "do not take a break from blogging " and I took a loooooong break, boohoo....
Well, let's face the facts: my blog was not a source of income, a girl needs to eat and pay the bills in London... I had to make some difficult decisions and sacrificed my blogging hobbies (boohoo again). But now I am back. Everybody deserves a second chance...
This picture was taken in Mexico.

Selling on Art Rookie.


I have been so busy the last couple of weeks and I have neglected my blog but in my defence when you are moving flat, having a knee injury and a full time job something needs to go and this time it was my blog. While I am still packing boxes, check out my new awesome shop on Art Rookie. Art Rookie is a cool website which supports young artists and designers. There is more to come...

Many times during long winter evenings I found myself browsing Instagram. I am surprise at how professional  some Instagram users' photos are.They look like they have been taken by professional photographers, with amazing lighting, backgrounds and styled to professional standards. You can see the effort and time that was put into it. I am also trying to have a "professional" look Insta account but with my full time job it is hard to spend a lot of time "instagraming".

 Do you spend a lot of time preparing your shots for Insta or are you more a catch the moment person? 

 The pics are from my Insta account....

New in January..


I deserve a slap... I have not been blogging since December, my last post was before Xmas but what can you do, sometimes things will go out of your control. I went home for Xmas to an "off line" zone and then I flew to the French Alps and now I am back in London with working wifi but with little time because we are moving flat, so my energy is spent on packing and organising.

This is the finished product of my "New in December" post. I tried to add some colour in photoshop and I have to say that most probably this is not my final "New in January" post, I will probably do more versions....
