#WIAW – Carbs

I feel great when I’m on a high carb diet, around 50% of my calories come from carbs. I tried low-carb diets when I was loosing weight and I was reaching the plateau. After 1-2 weeks, when the losing weight process resumed, I was going back to carbs. I am active despite having a job […]

10 Good things

1. New Sofa! The new sofa is finally here, after ordering it at the end of December. I’m happy with it, it’s exactly as I wanted it to be and it’s very comfy. The last sofa we had we got it from a friend after we moved in an unfurnished house. We had to buy […]

Jamie’s Italian review

Hubby and I went a few days ago to Jamie’s Italian for dinner. I was invited to review the restaurant. I had to take the opportunity as I passed by the restaurant a few times when I was shopping in Liverpool, but never got in. The restaurant is in a very good location, close to […]

Vegan leather jacket

Hubby surprised me when he phoned and said he bought something for me. I had no idea what he bought, I assumed it was something to eat. I wouldn’t have imagined he went to TKMaxx and discovered this amazing vegan leather jacket there. He obviously knew that I don’t wear real leather as I haven’t […]

Eating healthy while away with work

Next month I’m going away with work for one week, as I did for the last 2-3 years. Until now I made unrealistic plans of cooking and exercising. I had to change the way I approach this task to succeed in my plan of eating healthy. I have a pretty good idea what I will […]

It might come as a surprise for my meat-eating friends, but the best thing about being vegetarian is The Food! Although I think that gave it away considering the collage I’ve made. I wrote a post about being vegetarian 3 years ago and pretty much everything is the same. The only thing that changed is […]

My Christmas

I love Christmas, for me it’s the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with hubby and the dog. For the last years I blogged about Christmas and I want to blog again this year. I finally convinced hubby that he needs a Christmas jumper as I already bought one. Last year we had only festive […]

Walking in high heels

“How can you walk in these?” I hear this question many times I am walking in high heels. I love heels and I find them comfortable. I have a single pair of low heels because I’m always drawn to 3″-4″ heels and I end up buying them. Even thought they are so popular, I don’t […]
