Internet vs. Reality


Hi guys, I hope all of you are doing well 😊

Today I would like to share some thoughts with you regarding my personal observation during the past couple months. Yes, I’m going to write about this unfair difference between internet world and reality. A lot of the famous people I follow on Instagram lately shared their own opinion about how this “perfect world” actually threatens our real one. And it’s true…sad, but true, because we are all comparing our lives with the other ones…even when we deny that. For example I love to take pictures, when me and my husband are on a vacation somewhere I’m always begging him to make me some nice shots…he’s always never happy about that fact and we always have a little kind of a fight about…pictures.

I’m honestly saying that I don’t use any photoshop or any other modelling apps of a kind to touch my pictures. I only use the Instagram filters and that’s all…, but when I saw friend of mine to moderate her picture before adding it on her page, I was like “why?!” . Do we need to look unreal in the virtual world or this is something that we kind of always wanted to look like that and now with all those programs we could add some touch ups on our virtual life.

this one is one of my favorite pictures…and there is no filters on it 😘

Sometimes I feel like all the other pictures on Instagram for example are much better than mine, rather that I’m trying really hard to get nice pics…, but than I just say to myself…”do I need this?!” .

This is a condition actually that threatens a lot our generation…to compare, to sneak into the others “life” and calm ourselves that we also have this “perfect” life. But this lifestyle isn’t perfect at all…to be a professional model or an influencer, you should always be “perfect” and this actually is very stressful and leads to a lot of mental stress even to some psychological problems.

Nothing perfect just us

Guys, live your life and enjoy your days! Don’t try to be perfect for this picture, for this internet post…for anything…our generation needs more randomness and more realness.

After all, what is more “perfect”, than reality?!

Thank you guys for reading my thoughts ❤️

Have a great day to all of you!

Me than vs. Me now


Hello guys,

On this very special for me day I would like to share some thoughts with you… On this day…seven years ago… me and my husband started dating. Seven is very important number for me and I believe is my lucky number…I’m born on 7th of April, my school number was 7 and etc.

Seven years… my longest and meaningful relationship ever…seven years ago I was just a girl who was looking for her greatest love… seven years later I’m a woman who’s trying to keep this sparkle every single day!

But this is not the main topic today. Recently, me and my husband had a lots of misunderstandings between us… I caught him in couple lies…and all this was connected with his best friend and his girlfriend. Long story short we had a serious conversation what marriage and relationship is and how some bad influence could ruin something that you have for so long, something strong and meaningful as your family. Yes, sometimes our friends are not as much friends as we are for them…and that showed us clearly last couple days.

I’m honest person and always go into relationship/ friendship or so with honesty. This is extremely important for me to be able to build trust and fruitful relationship. But unfortunately not everyone in my life responds the same…it turns out that some people in our life that we used to call friends are not…and that sometimes not only hurts, but betrays your faith in this people.

Of course I can forgive…, but I’m truly not sure if I can forget…

My previous me…seven years ago probably would bye for that…but now…I don’t think so… I grow up and become much wiser… at least I believe so 😃

So after all I wanted to share to you guys my advice. Never stop fighting for your happiness, love and the truth. All that matters in this complicated life is your own happiness!

Wishing you all amazing week!

Talk to you soon 💖

XOXO

Life is all about choices we make…and stick to them 💖


Hi guys,

Hope all of you are doing well. For the past couple months a lot has been happening and in the meantime everything is still the same ( in a good way of course)

You can stay at home or just enjoy the the rain outside… it’s up to you 😜

Lately I’m trying to focus on my mental health and stability by practicing more yoga and I feel wonderful, fully positive and energetic after a session. That’s why I decided to talk to you guys today and focus on the inside stability and how important is that for our health and life in general.

Sometimes you get passionate about kind of a sport and than it feels harder to stay on track and be able to make 2-3-5 workouts for a week…, but here is the moment where you should push your self a little, because after couple months it will come naturally to keep your own rhythm…and the same is happening with all other choices me make… sometimes we are the one who are not giving them a chance to improve our lives.

All we need is 🌞 and a 😊
Balance is the key 💖

It doesn’t need to be a strict plan that we need to follow…sometimes we need to let ourselves to be spontaneous, to learn to listen our inside voice.

It’s not about the perfect picture, or outfit or captured moment…sometimes it’s worth it just to enjoy your own time/day/ moment…without thinking about what’s next on my list… just truly get your self in those moment and live it…💖

Thank you guys, really…thank you for being with me from the very beginning of this blog journey 💖

Have a wonderful weekend!

xoxo

The terrible two’s


Hello guys, it seems like forever from my last post. Today is a very special day for me and I would like to share it with you 💖

On this special day 2 years ago, I said YES to my beloved husband, best friend, partner and everything else what that gorgeous man means to me! And I never regret that!

Of course we had some problems, fights and all that bad energy things that could go through our lives, but that is probably inevitable… We had our bad moments like every other married couple and probably we’re gonna have them again in the future…who knows, but my point is to learn how to accept… to accept the person in front of you with all his negative parts, because everyone has his own bad part. To try to focus more on your love…on the topic why you love this person, not why you are mad at him at this moment…of course this is easy on a daily basis with our every day things… it’s very hard when it comes to more serious things like lies, cheating and betraying the trust between two people in general… in this occasions probably this is not your true half with whom you could spend a happy and joyful life.

There is periods between each couple, but the most important thing of having a healthy and happy marriage is to solve your problems with love and care, to look in the eyes of your partner and remember why you chose to say “yes” to this person exactly and also when something is touched with a positive energy, I strongly believe that that kind of energy is coming back to you…and the opposite…if you start with a negative vibe…all that is coming back to you!

So what I’m trying to say is that this world needs more love and care in general 💖

There is and there are going to be a lot’s of terrible two’s, four’s…tent’s and etc. Let’s try to go through this periods with love and care to our partners. In my opinion, this is the right way to a happy life, marriage and relationship in general… like they says… “until death do us apart”

Have a great day guys!

When everything goes wrong…


Hi guys, welcome back to my page 😊

Hope all of you are doing well and enjoying those beautiful summer days!

Today I would like to share some personal experience with you. What are you doing when all of your business, personal and etc plans goes totally in a wrong direction.

All that just happened to me and I decided to share that experience with you guys. As a very neat and extremely organized person, you need to know that I always have a schedule for the day. Long time ago when all of my plans were interrupted by the destiny’s hand, I always used to get mad, to react on the situation with such a negative emotions… I’m glad that nowadays I could handle most of that feelings and remain still and calm in much more situations.

Of course there is still some misunderstandings which could shake me from the inside, but I’m really trying to react in a positive way… If something doesn’t go well, I’m trying to look at the positive side and act with positive thoughts, instead of negative ones.

You know that everything in this life happens for a reason and when the destiny isn’t giving you the things you want, maybe this is because you deserve something even better 😜

You always have at least two choices in life and your right choices are in your hands only!

“Feel the rain on your skin, no one else can feel it for you…”

Everything could go wrong, but if we manage to stay calm and react in a positive way, the results would be much better! Remember that after the rain comes a rainbow 🌈

Have a great weekend ahead guys and remember to stay positive 😛

Crossroads


Hello guys, I know I didn’t post anything lately, but there was a lot of circumstances about my absence here.

Have you ever had that deep inside filling that you don’t know (for a thousand time) how to proceed with your life. How to make space for the real important things… I’m going through something similar now… I deeply know what I want in my life, but don’t know how to make the steps to achieve it… or when I’m trying to make those small little steps the things are always going on a wrong direction… I don’t know, I really feel very unconfident right now, probably that’s why I didn’t wrote anything for such a long time.

I really need to make some order in my life… to have the real vision how my job and personal life would go further, but… I don’t know from where to get started for example, or sometimes I punish myself that I’m probably not motivated enough…

Sometimes this little crossroads makes a big mess with our lives…,right?!

One thing is for sure…whatever is meant to be…it will be…it will make some space and take the right part of your life…in the right moment!

I don’t want to sound naive, I just believe it… I just want to find the good part of the coin.

We all have our moments of doubts, insecurity and pretty bad thoughts… , but we need to find our own ways to get out of this conditions, otherwise the situation would become worse.

So I want to say is… stay positive guys, no matter what happens… find a way to see the better half 💖

Thank you all for reading my confessions 💖

Top 10 amazing places in Bulgaria


Hello guys,

Today I would like to share with you some really amazing places in my home country. Due to the past year…with all the lockdowns, coronavirus spread and travel restrictions we (me, my husband and our friends)decided to discover some “hidden” places in our country.

Probably some of you know, some don’t that here in Bulgaria we have small sea cost, we have mountains, we have a lots of mineral water resources, good wines and etc.

That practically makes our small and beautiful country year round travel destination.

For the winter for example…we have couple ski destinations like Bansko and Pamporovo, but a lot of the people don’t know actually how beautiful Bansko is during the summer. That is what I discovered past summer and I’m pretty sure that we’ll go there this summer again.

Bansko in the winter
But during the summer is sooo beautiful as well

We have really small sea cost comparing with our neighbour Greece for example, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t have pretty sights and breathtaking sunsets.

My heart was won by Veleka beach this past summer…such a beautiful place where the delta of Veleka river hits the Black sea. So at one side there you have the view of the river and on the other side the beach… amazing!

Veleka beach
Amazing view

On the other side, close to Veleka beach you could find one wild and extremely beautiful beach, called Silistar.

Silistar beach
The breathtaking view above Silistar beach

There is one more amazing place, I recently discovered, this place is called camping Zlatna ribka, right next to the well known city of Sozopol.

Camping Zlatna ribka
And… the breathtaking sunset there…🥰
One of the best beach bars there- Le Musch

So… we went from the winter through the summer, but there is another year round destinations with great SPA, food and wine experience. Me and my husband just came back from one of them called Wine and SPA complex Starosel. We loved that place…

Wine and SPA complex Starosel

Amazing place which combines hot mineral water, great wine, food and a lots of activities either for adults or for the kids.

Of course there is more places like Starosel, Midalidare for example is another wonderful wine and spa destination, not only for relax and some getaway but even for your dreamed wedding.

Midalidare estate
Amazing wedding party

Speaking of weddings I couldn’t not mention our wedding in the magic little village Golyama Zhelyazna, right on the Sopot’s dam. It’s not a coincidence that the place is called Heaven’s bay or Rayski Zaliv 🥰

Night view
Sunset on the dam of Sopot

There is a lot more places in our small country like the one I mentioned before…with the variety of wineries and mineral water resources there is great places like Chateau Copsa, amazing SPA destinations like Hissar, Pavel banya, Banya village, right next to the town of Bansko and many, many more… so if I inspired you a little give me a tumb up and consider to visit our beautiful country in case there is no more lockdowns, travel restrictions and etc.

Does the positive vibe helps…?!


Hello guys,

Today I would like to talk to you about those moments when you feel like everything underneath is falling apart despite all the positive thoughts you have in your mind.

Yes, there is moments like that in everyday life… and yes, those moments pass too… sooner or later

The only difference between going through those moments with as much as possible positive thoughts is that when it’s all gone you would be able to recover faster and easier… and yes, it is hard to actually apply those rules when you are really upset… oh boy, tell me about it… I’m mostly that kind of person who just need one flame… and the fire / storm / scandal is 100% sure… yes, a pure Aries 🙈

But I’m trying… really I’m trying to minimize the problem, not to make it even bigger with a nice fight for example. And yes, for me the positive vibe really helps in most of the times ☺️

So… my advice is to take a deep breath, make a nice dessert instead… or go out (if you can… with all this lockdowns) and enjoy some free quality time 💖

Whatever you choose to do… do it and keep your mind clean from negative thoughts 💖

Have a great week and start of the new month 🍀

New year new challenges…


Hello guys,

How are you in this cold weather. Hope all of you are healthy and happy!

Today I would like to tell you more about how my year started. I decided that 2021 will be different for us, because of the all changes we made last complicate year.

So first I decided to turn into myself and start a really healthy life. I decided to turn to a nutritionist for a complete and balanced meal plan and now I’m finishing my first week of this change.

I decided to stay away from all my negative thoughts and feelings about our new apartment and stop chopping this topic with my husband, so after all whatever happens with us in the future, at least I will be sure for myself that I did everything that I could.

I’m pretty sure that this year will be challenging too, even more than the last one, but this is something good. Challenges come to our life’s to change it in a good way, I strongly believe in this! Even in the worst scenario ( for example friend of mine just lost her kid due to a cancer… I really don’t know what to say to her now…it’s hard…).

All I want to say is that yes, life is hard… I experience a lot of shakings in my mood, doubts in my own abilities, but if you let all those feelings to take advantage of you the situation would become even worse.

I decided for myself that I’ll stop making all those big plans for everything and try just to have an idea of what I’m gonna do or where we’re gonna go and etc. I would like to be more flexible at the end of this year, more the type of person who’s trying to solve the problem, not to analyse it forever.

So this is practically my most bright new year’s resolutions. What about yours? I will be very happy if you share some of them with me in the comments below.

Have a great day and weekend!

The positive part of 2020


Hello guys,

In the very end of this year I would like to turn back and think about of all the positive things that happened to us. I mean, yes, 2020 was a very hard year for all of the people in the world…some of us lost friends or family members, some of us lost their main income, some of us went through this year with other personal issues due or not to coronavirus… but instead of looking back with regrets… let’s be thankful for the lessons we learned and continue in the New Year with more positive thoughts!

I understand how hard could be that, but in the other way we won’t win anything if we stay on the negative side of the situation.

Whatever happens in the future with the spread of the coronavirus… let’s trick it with more flexibility, with calmness and more smiles 💖

First I would like to say a big Thank you to all of you, who read, like and are actually interested in my blog page! Thank you guys, I really appreciate it, this page was a dream that came true this year, because I was able to say to my self “ What are you afraid of?! Just do it!”

I’m not gonna make this post like the typical New Year’s resolutions, this year I’m just thankful… for all that things, that happened to me, to all the lessons I learned, to all of my friends and family!

2021 is a new chapter… you all are capable to do whatever you really want to! Yes, it’s not easy… but after all it’s worth it, believe me 😘

Thank you all for staying with me this year!

I promise to share a lot of new adventures with you in the next one 🥰

Stay healthy and positive!

xoxo

Happy New Year!

Late fall getaway


Sometimes we all need to escape for the weekend and just do nothing.

That’s why I decided to give for my husbands birthday a little getaway from our daily routine as a present. And it was really nice and relaxing. We both need that for sure.

I highly recommend this place for a little spa getaway. It’s perfect for couples who doesn’t want to live the resort. The food, the view the people…everything was great!

If the situation wasn’t like that and we weren’t living in this pandemic world, probably we will travel to another place outside our country, but it is what it is and we were happy to spend the weekend just us two, no matter what is the situation outside.

Beautiful nature of Bulgaria

So after all…we came to an agreement that we definitely should do it again, if we have that possibility… if the situation allows us that.

It’s nice to spend couple days with your husband like the good old times… 😎

Have a great weekend guys!

And if you can give yourself a little getaway…just do it, it’s worth it! 💖

Living in a pandemic times… how to avoid the panic and live a normal life instead


Hello everybody,

I’m writing today about this very painful topic from the beginning of this year, the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lately our situation here in Bulgaria increased and we are having more and more positive cases, so yes, nobody is pretty sure if we won’t experience another lockdown in the next couple months. So again nobody could plan anything and I’m not talking about some weekends getaways, but even Christmas holidays, New Years Eve and etc.

I’m wondering however what happened with the seasonal flu and viruses that were so common in this season, because everything that you could hear nowadays is COVID-19, all right, but what happened with the flu…

I don’t want to go deeper in my thoughts about the line between the seasonal flu and the Covid virus and is there a line at all, so just wanna tell you guys to try at least to live normally, to eat more healthy food, to try to exercise more….living a healthy life is the first step of protecting yourself from all those viruses.

With the consuming of more vegetables and fruits we are increasing our chance not even to have a better immune system, but to feel better in our own bodies. In addition to that if we add some light exercises to our daily routine, that would help our metabolism to start working faster and to get rid of some extra pounds/kg. Doesn’t that sound’s good?

Trying to keep things in a normal way it’s not always an easy job, but we could give it a try 😎

I’m that kind of person who always try’s to make the things look in a more positive way, so whatever happens in the next few months, no matter how many plans we have to reschedule just let’s try to be more positive 💖

Just keep your minds and bodies healthy, smile more and enjoy your time always, even if you have a bad day…do something for your self…something to make you feel better and happier!

Thank you everyone for reading my blog today!

If you like it, you know what to do 👍🏻

Have a great afternoon guys!

Three years…time flies 💖


Hello guys, I’m writing today, because I feel very nostalgic and happy at the same time. My little boy, turned three years couple days ago.

I still can’t believe when this years passed…

For the all of you who don’t know me, he was born prematurely in 35th week of my pregnancy. He was tiny little baby and now is one happy little boy ☺️

I feel so thankful every single day, since I saw this little eyes, arms and feet…to be a mom it’s the happiest thing that ever happened to me 💖

Thank you, my dear son, for all those little moments every day, for teaching me how to rediscover the world with you…for choosing me for your mommy! I love you to the moon and back!

Thank you guys, for reading my story!

Have a great Sunday evening!

Do we take our partner for granted?!


Hello guys, in this sunny autumn afternoon I’m thinking about our relationships and how sometimes we take our partners for granted without even noticing that.

Yes, with our busy schedules during the week and even weekends, somehow we stopped being romantic. We just go through our tasks and at the end of the day, we are so tired of that routine that we just turn Netflix or some YouTube channels and just fall asleep after. And did anyone actually notice that this routine is repeating again and again… and if we don’t wake up on time from this bubble we take the risk to destroy our relationships.

I’m not sure if we women notice that situation more often than men…, but sometimes it really hurts when you went through that conversation several times in your relationship and your partner still wakes up in the morning, knowing that you two are alone (the kids are not in your bedroom) and you could have some privacy and instead of hugging and kissing you, he takes his phone and open the newsfeed or Facebook…

I’m not trying to say that every day should be exciting adventure for you, because sometimes it’s really nice to just stay at home with your partner, instead of going out, and pour a glass of wine, turn the Netflix on…but let’s not get so comfy with that and try to pay more attention to your relationship. Do some new things for both of you, travel to new places, discover new things together…if we don’t make the effort to keep the flame of our marriage/partnership, believe me, it won’t last for long… In the times we live, into the quick liquidity relationships and hectic daily life…we have to at least try more often to spend some quality time with our partner.

So…after all…everything that matters is love. Love yourself, love your partner, family, friends….when we give love it returns to us…this is the circle of life 💕

Life is good, because there is you, right next to me!

Thank you all for reading my thoughts this afternoon, if you like it, you know what to do 😎

Have a great afternoon!

Parents need life too…,right?!


Hello guys, how are you? This couple weeks I feel not myself at all.

My little one starts to wake up at night again and not even crying but screaming during the night…I don’t know if this is the last teeth, just the “terrible two’s“ or the change of the season…maybe the mothers here who are reading my blogs could give me an advice how to proceed with that screaming and crying periods of “I want that/I don’t want it “… yeah…sometimes it’s hard to survive through the end of the day.

Calibri
A simple example

And on the next day you should be fresh and full of energy, because you need to go to work and etc. I’m not trying to complain, don’t get me wrong…I don’t know…just share my experience as a working mommy.

Because you know that it’s not only the happy pictures in the social media…everyone haves their own moments, right? We all see happy faces and clean houses and moms who looks like just got out of the magazine…but let’s face it, nothing of this is actually real and most of the time those people probably experience the same things like us.

And in the hard times with all that pandemic situation and upcoming cold season , if we don’t find our own happiness and happy place….nobody could be able to do it for us, right 😊

Sometimes I in person, experience a lot of hard times with my little boy. He’s turning 3 years next week and there is times when he becomes really fussy and frustrated for actually nothing… like for example the crises from last night “I want some water (he couldn’t reach the bottle by himself, he got angry) than started to scream “I don’t want water “…. all this drama in 3 AM…funny right?! And this recently happens often… I don’t know if that is normal or my kid is going through a phase…if you share your experience with me that would be very helpful guys ☺️

So, yes, right or wrong…rest or sleepy…we are all parents and we definitely need a break sometimes, after all we have rights too 😀

Thank you all for reading my blog today! Have a great weekend and see you soon 💖

Nothing is what it seems to be…but that’s why we love it


Hello guys, I know I wasn’t posting for a while, but like all of us sometimes, I’ve been through a let’s say…hard time.

The truth is that I thought that I could be pregnant with a second one, it turns out….I’m not…, but all those waiting and wondering “Am I?” just shakes my world in a bit.

Not because I don’t want to have another baby, I do…, but now it’s not the right time for me and I as a woman could feel when is the right time for something like that and when is not.

I think that even that we are living in 21st century sometimes women are not appreciated enough in some countries(or I’m not sure if this is because of the country you’re living and all the common habits, or it’s in your own DNA, no matter what kind of people and mentality you are surrounded). Sometimes men think that if you can handle one baby, why not make some more, especially if they are not that much involved in taking care of their kids. I have the impression, may be it’s just my impression, but in a lots of families men/husbands/fathers doesn’t take that much care for their kids when they are little, I mean they focus on their own job and career and don’t help that much to their wife’s/partners.

Believe me that’s not really good, because that’s why the woman became more depressed, more obsessed about the kids, she doesn’t have that much time for herself and after all as much as you adore your little ones you become unsatisfied of your personal life and that’s not healthy at all…we all know where that lead goes.

So my dear male friends, if you wanna have another baby, please, first talk about it with your partner…don’t make her feel like an incubator 😃

Being a parent is one of the best things in my life ( you all probably know that from my previous posts), but it’s not enough for me and probably for a lot of the women who is reading my posts… so discuss this topic with your partner and if he/she is not ready now don’t be pushy. Appreciate your partner’s decision and wait for the right time… and if something else happens and you actually turns out to be pregnant…don’t feel sorry for that and accept that the destiny wants you to have baby now, and there is nothing bad about that ☺️

Wishing you all an amazing day.

2020…expectations vs. reality


Hello guys, I hope all of you who are reading this post are healthy, smiling and in a really good mood today 😊

Today I would like to describe my expectations for this year vs. all those things which actually happened with me. At the beginning of this year I was full of thoughts for travel opportunities and new destinations in my life like thinking for a new home, visit some countries for the first time and etc.

At the beginning of this year the only scheduled event that actually happened was the birthday surprise trip to Milan with my mom, one of my closest friends and her mom. Our mothers are born in the beginning of February so we decided to organise a trip for their birthdays to Milan for some mommy and daughters time.

After that we were under lockdown for like two months…and all our plans for this year just had to be changed… we had tickets for Barcelona, we had plans with our friends for a summer trip to Kefalonia without kids and etc…I was devastated when I herd the news about changing the date for the Olympic games, but…this is life and sometimes we have to be flexible, we need to learn how to extract the positive vibes from the disadvantage circumstances.

So…after all, we managed to go to Greece, but with our toddler and we had such a great time, after that we went to the Bulgarian seacoast with our friend…and yes, we still have those tickets to Barcelona locked as a voucher, because after all nothing is gonna happen if we go there next year or the year after…, right? The world is not going to end with a cancelled flight 😉

I’m not trying to say that all this situation with the coronavirus is fake or made for the benefit of someone else, but in fact some people got some benefits from this crisis,right?!

Yes, a lot of people died with the virus, I agree… but somehow I still can’t believe that we all need those restrictions. Yes, we are following all the rules of the WHO, our doctors and etc. We were following all the rules from our government, we stayed at home as long as we had to…, but for example, when we were in a lockdown we had like 40-100 cases for a day…after that during the summer we were having regularly over 100 cases even more (I stopped paying attention to that scale somewhere in July, but I remember days with more than 200 cases… and we weren’t under those past restrictions)

After all, I used all those time for some quality moments with my family, for myself, for more positive things, for some homemade food and etc.

So yes.., I had another expectations for this year, but after all it turns out that the unexpected situations lead to lots of great memories💖

I’m wishing you all a positive day full of smiles 💖

September…a month to remember


Hello everyone,

In this sunny day, in the middle of September I’m thinking about the hot summer days which just passed, the plans for our vacations that we all had, for all those memories we made… and slowly start to setting up my mind with the thought of the upcoming fall season. All those colours and last sunny days…the mornings and evenings become chilly, but there is still shiny and bright hours in middle of the day… isn’t it pretty?!

Some of us start to feel a little depressed,right…and only the thought for the Holiday season cheers you up…right? 😛

In the past I didn’t enjoy a lot the Christmas holidays, but for the last five years that feeling got changed because of my boyfriend (now my husband). He made me feel the joy of that cold days…and showed me actually how nice is to have homemade dinner, nice movie to watch and sharing a glass of nice red wine (one of my favourites). Love could change everything, isn’t it? Now I’m thinking…why we have to feel so nostalgic about the past season (spring, summer, fall and etc.) and just don’t enjoy what the upcoming season is offering to us. Why is so easy for us to focus on the sad/nostalgic part of the things and just not turn your energy into a positive vibe for what is coming in our lives. Even with the lockdown situation this spring, most of my friends were acting in a negative way, instead of just accept the real situation and try turn it in a positive way for you. Isn’t it easier to feel sad instead of just happy?!

We are the only one responsible for our own happiness, if we refuse to see the beauty of the future and still feel stuck in our past…it’s no one else’s problem..it’s our own.

So yes, seasons change….and there is nothing bad about it…enjoy every moment guys!

Life is too short…smile more often 🥰

Hope my post gives you a positive vibe and makes you smile even once today 💕

xoxo

Healthy life or where is the thin red line


Hello guys, today I would like to discuss something different with you.

It’s all about the healthy life that literally deluge our everyday life. I mean…how many of you were having organic food instead of a random one ten years ago, how many of you used to go to the gym or make some home workouts…used to eat chia, avocado, quinoa and etc… How many of you are people who can’t live without activities. I’m one of them…I confess, but that’s because I used to play rhythmic gymnastics for 9 years and I grew up with sports in my life. But also, when I was younger I used to eat much more carbs, fat and junk food than nowadays and this is also because the healthy life has such a good marketing strategies not only in my country but all over the world. And it is something great, because one of the most popular diseases this days is the obesity of the population.

But I want to tell you something, mostly to the women who are reading my post (unfortunately we are the part of the humanity that is affected mostly by the fit and healthy bodies, trying to be and look perfectly in the eyes of the people around us) this is a thin red line and if you don’t know how and where is your limit the results of that lifestyle aren’t healthy at all…and yes, I’m talking exactly about anorexia and bulimia.

The joy of a salad is that it can be made up from almost anything and it will always provide you with a healthy, colorful, and fun food experience.

It all starts in your mind…someone told you “hey, it looks like you gained some weight” or even more innocent “ I like your muffin top” and than you decide to start living much more healthy life and to rid of those couple pounds extra…all right, good idea, to exchange the grease junk food with their healthy equivalents, to eat more veggies…but some people can’t just keep that and seeing how much weight they lost just want to continue that way…and this is exactly the begging of that spiral of that terrible diseases.

There is nothing wrong to want for your self to have a healthy body and healthy mind, to workout, to try to eat healthy and good food, but believe me if you start to feel good only when you see how much kg you lost…just stop for a while and make a cheat day or even week…my point is to learn where is that red line and to learn how to not cross it.

My all point is that we should learn how to love our bodies whenever they are…stretch marks or not, cellulite or no…this is our body… everything could change nowadays…there is aesthetic procedures, cosmetics, healthy meal plans, home workouts and etc. , but if we don’t feel that love and respect to our own bodies nothing of that would be satisfying for us…and we will end up wanting more and more and all that efforts won’t be ever enough for us.

So think about it…look your self in the mirror and say “hey, gorgeous, you look amazing today” !

Thank you guys for reading my story today! This topic is really sensitive for me either, so if you like it, you know what to do 😉

Have a great day!

xoxo

One year down and forever to go…


I still remember the way my heart leaped when you got down on your knee and asked me to be your wife. Of course I said yes, and I’d say it all over again. Yes to you. Yes to this life we’ve made. A thousand times YES to our love!

On this special day last summer we said the official YES in front of our parents, relatives and friends…yes, everyone says the first one sometimes is the sweetest, but the sour one too. Our wasn’t the exception, but I truly believe that as many bumps we have on our road together as stronger we’ll stay as a couple and partners in this life…wasn’t that actually what people called marriage?!

It’s not always roses and unicorns, it’s not only dinners on the sea cost, watching the sunset together and enjoying each other company. It’s not only passion, love and sweet moments. I wish for us to keep going through all those moments together hand by hand, like through all happy ones too! The most important part is that I believe in us and in our love, I believe that we are able to resist the time and the difficulties and stay together still looking in each other eyes like on those day!

I love you, my darling and always will fight for our team!

Thank you all, for sharing this special day with me!

Have a great Monday!

xoxo

Multitasking…or just trying to survive


Hi guys, today I would like to share with you my experience as a multitasking mother, wife, woman and etc.

Nowadays is hard sometimes to be mother of a toddler, working 40 hours a week and trying to be also good wife, daughter, friend… housekeeper, cook…to work out 4-5 times a week, to spend quality time with your kid and with your husband…to be a good looking young woman with nice hair, always perfect nails…come on…who could do all that 😂 I mean…one day is just 24 hours…and for me, if I have to be honest, are not enough…

Sometimes my son goes to bed after 11 PM and yes, I don’t have the power to wash my hair for example after that time, because we usually wake up around 8 o’clock in the morning…and yes, mommy needs some sleep too.

Another topic is that we sleep almost 8 hours now, after our baby boy turned 2,5 years, before that we used to be awake several times during one night.

I don’t have someone who’s helping me with the domestic work…so I either have to send my son and husband out at the playground to try to clean the house meanwhile or have to spend also some quality time with my family. My point is that I rather choose to spend some time with my husband and kid than loose it with housekeeping…and no, my house is not a total mess but it’s not also like just got shot in a magazine, especially with a toddler in it 😄

Me and my husband are privileged to receive help with our boy from my gorgeous mother, who always takes him with her when we need a little break, because parents are people too and we as a lot of you probably need a break, to spend some time alone, to be able to do our own things as a couple not only as a parents. And for me this is very important…to keep that sparkle in your relationship.

Sometimes is better to leave some dirty dishes in the sink and to turn the washing machine later, because the time spent with your kid is priceless… the dishes could wait, but your kid won’t be a kid for a long time and one day you’ll miss all those little moments…. it’s priceless, believe me 🥰

Multitasking or not, there always will be hard times being a woman these days, but it’s up to us if we allow all those stereotypes and expectations to make our days harder or to just hug your kid, kiss your husband and go out for a walk with a sink full of dirty dishes 😉

Thank you for reading my story guys!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

After all, seasons change…so do people


Hello guys,

Today I’m thinking about how do we all change ourselves. Some of us for good reasons some of us change, because of a bad experience in life…and etc., but we all change during our journey, called life.

Definitely the birth of my baby boy changed me the most. He was expected baby, but suddenly once he was born everything I felt confident about taking care of a newborn, just disappeared. Sleepless nights( literally two years),crazy days…bottles, formulas…baby food…teething and all that… I was exhausted…

But all that is part of the motherhood and it’s worth every day and night. Now when I turn back to those days I feel so happy for the possibility to be a mom to this amazing boy!

To be a mom is blessing for me and yes, I don’t understand women who doesn’t want to have kids…, but this is only my honest opinion and nothing more. Everyone has his own right to choose either to be a parent or not. So no judgment guys, but it’s amazing 😉

even in this cases 🙈

Thank you everyone who red my story today, if you like it…you know what to do ☺️

Wishing you a great Friday and weekend ahead!

xoxo

Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn


No matter what happens there always is a sunrises and sunsets in our days and lives…so stop for a second and just enjoy that moments of beauty and peace.

I always connect the summer with the most beautiful sunsets and because I adore summertime, I love those moments….just sit somewhere quietly with a glass of cold wine in one of my hands and just watch that gorgeous colors in the sky, especially when I have a chance to watch this beauty from the sea cost.

After all all that matters in our lives is love…a grateful heart full of love, an open mind and a little pinch of positive energy… and everything will be all right 💖

Wishing you an amazing sunset view today!

Relationships…what do we actually know about them


Hi guys, today I’m thinking about our relationships…the relationship with our partner, with our parents, kids, with ourselves even. What do we actually know and what do we actually do to keep them stronger. How well do we actually know our partner for example, does he/she still surprise you with some new info about his/her’s personality?

Nowadays is very complicated to keep the sparkle in your relationship, that little flame which makes butterflies in your stomach. Some people think that they know each other so good, they love each other, they support each other and suddenly one day they wake up in the morning to realise that this is not their life anymore,they are not on that page…people could change and one day this person you woke up with could be a stranger for you and this is scary, because for example 10 years ago you and him/her gave those beautiful vows in-front of each other and now you are two completely different people. You have kids, mortgage and bills to pay, the kids have their own needs and etc. And one day this fairytale ends, because you wake up one morning to see that you actually don’t know your partner anymore. Well probably there is worst scenarios, but most of the couples have experienced that little crisis in their relationships and the only reason that happens is because we take our partner for granted, because we don’t fight for that love every day, we let our current problems (job, bills, domestic problems and etc.) to be bigger than the feeling of joy and love to our partnership, yes, because one relationship is a partnership too.We could talk a lot at this topic, but my point is to tell you not only my point of view, but to encourage may be some of you to swallow your ego and to say “I’m sorry” or “I love you” ;”I appreciate what you do every day” to your partner TODAY…even for those of you who are in love with someone and he doesn’t know that…go ahead, express your feelings, tell that person you love him…and for some reason if he says “I can’t answer back to your feelings”, all right… so this isn’t your true soulmate and you need to know that information to go ahead with your life and find that real one …the love of your life, the answer to your dreams. We are the only people who is responsible for our own life and happiness, remember that! And never give up on love 💓

So this became a bigger blog and my point was actually to see what do you guys think about that, to share your experience with me in the comments below. Thank you to those of you who red it,who left me a comment and like and hope reading my page makes you smile at least once today 💕

My life…my choices…my moments


Hello everyone, thank you so much for joining me in my new adventure 💖

In my previous post I shared some info about my life (if you didn’t read it, now is the time you could do it 😛) , now I’m gonna introduce myself a little bit more. My name is Elitsa, but you could call me Ell’s or Elly, I’m from Sofia, Bulgaria, I currently live there and I decided to start this blog,because this is something I really wanted to do last couple years, but I wasn’t maybe brave enough to start, or wasn’t the right time for that. Nowadays I feel much more confident to start and just type some of my thoughts, desires, choices, travel experience, parenting and etc. That’s my point…if you wanna do something…just do it, don’t worry about who’s gonna like it, who’s gonna criticise you and who’s gonna support you…don’t be afraid to start…even if you fail, you can stand up and continue fighting for what matters to you and what makes you feel happy! Life is too short, literally … so fight for you dreams and don’t let the fear or some kind of insecurity to take that dream apart from you!

Be brave my dears and smile to this world, let your minds and souls be full of love and the Universe will answer you back the same way 💕

Life as we know it


Today was the day when I finally realised that I could turn my hobby into something much more exciting…and yes, I decided to start this blog… so this is my first release…

Today I thought a lot about our life after the big step and I’m not talking about marriage, I’m talking about the decision to have a baby. For the people who doesn’t know me, I’m a proud mom of 2,5 years old baby boy…and yes, that 2,5 years was difficult…not only for me and my body, but for my personal relationship with my husband. We weren’t married when the baby was born, but our relationship changed a lot…and the question is who’s didn’t. These days I red a post for two people that I swore in God was crazy in love…and guess what, after their beautiful baby girl was born, they announced to all their followers that they are no longer together. Yes, when the baby comes everything is changing,right? There is no longer long dates, nights out, vacations and etc, except if you don’t have strong help so called also as grandparents. But even then…you two…are no longer just you too and if both of you don’t work extremely hard to keep that part of your own flame as a couple…everything goes apart. Probably some of you won’t agree with me and say that it’s just that faze, but let’s face it, nothing stays the same after your little monkey comes at this world. And I’m saying this in a good way, because we need that challenges, because we all need to grow up together and build that strong family we only dreamed about in the past.
This is life, either you accept the challenge or either fall in the deep rabbit hole…life as we know it, so fight for your dreams and follow them with hearts full of love.
