Perfectly Aligned

Yesterday I put on my high heels and went for a walk with Sofia. Awwww, I missed that casual-chic city look! Since I moved to Copenhagen my style has changed a lot. I have matured and so has the way I wear my new identity. Plus, it’s almost impossible to stumble upon anyone wearing stilettos in daylight here, which probably explains why everyone who crossed my path had a question mark on their face. But who cares? Now that Philip and I live a little bit closer to the city, why not go back to my city self? My biggest mistake during my stay in Copenhagen – I did my best to fit in. I tried to make Danish friends and to...
   

Embracing the Transition with a Spring-Fresh Look

Change is never easy.  The transition grabs you by the hand and takes you on a journey – sometimes rocky, sometimes smooth – but always exciting because you’re on your way to some place new. Even the seasonal transition can be tricky. Do you ever get the so called ‘Spring Break Blues’? I’ve decided to embrace the transition and celebrate it like a Dane! Going for a Spring fresh look despite the chilly wind.

I mean, seriously! The other day people were already sunbathing and it was just above 14 C. degrees. Me?...

Still Breastfeeding While Gradually Introducing Solids

I can’t believe that my baby girl is already eating solids with a a spoon, while sitting on a chair! If you’re a mommy you can probably understand my excitement and if not – one day you will. It was a struggle for me to decide how to handle the transition from full-time breastfeeding to breastfeeding and cooking for my little one. I was aiming for the 6 months milestone before introducing solids to Sofia’s diet, but then I realised that what works for other babies doesn’t necessarily mean that it would work for my own. The thing is – in Denmark babies are almost exclusively breastfed and most moms start with the solids around month 4. In Bulgaria most babies...
   

The Way Of Seeing

I tend to take the role of the saviour. If you find yourself in a difficult situation – I’d be there. I’d hold your hand, I’d listen and talk you through the whole thing. I won’t give up until you’re motivated enough to get up, dust yourself off, accept the situation and move on happier and with eyes all clear and ready to discern the beauty of the University. When it comes to me dealing with my own trash? I’m proactive – I get things done, I change the course of the events rather than wait around until someone does that first. Only that it took years for me to learn that. There was a time when I was more...

The Monday After

 The big packing has begun (more about what’s going on here)! Philip and I spent the weekend rearranging the flat, throwing things out, and sorting the rest in boxes. The flat feels empty and its cosiness has almost evaporated. I can’t help but feel nostalgic, blogging from our couch and looking at the empty shelves. Philip and I managed to turn his bachelor’s pad into our first home and it’d been years since I last called a place ‘home’. And here we are already embarking on a new adventure. Even though our life in boxes is bringing my anxiety levels up (yes, I’m still learning to control my perfectionism and not let it get the best of me), we decided to get all the annoying tasks out...

We Go Baby Swimming and Partying, I mean kinda…

In today’s vlog we’re going back in time again to see Sofia-Malou joining her first swimming class with her daddy. This time I was only taking photos and cheering 🙂 Then we went to celebrate Philip’s father who had 40 years anniversary since the establishment of his company! 40 years? Freakin’ impressive, especially having in mind that he build it all by himself. With this vlog we’re getting closer to actually making the bridge between the past and the changes we’re going through now. To see more click here. PS. That’s Sofia-Malou’s auntie (P.’s sister)… and to be honest they look much more alike than Sofia and I. Seriously, people thought I was the auntie…! But that’s okay. Mommy under cover....
   

NO, I’M NOT PERFECT

No I’m not Perfect, but I’ve done my share of trying. Perfectionism  – my biggest excuse and reason to complain. ‘I have no time to write and do my online studies. I have to clean before I can sit down and get some … done.’ I believed myself for a long time. I prioritised dealing with the physical trash and piling up the mental one. The less I blogged and read the heavier the burden in my chest felt. It was me postponing the inevitable – facing the results! It’s easier to live in blissful oblivion than fail, right? And then you can always justify it – with ‘Well, I haven’t had enough time on my hands to work hard, so of...

PRELUDE: AUNTIES IN ACTION

Today I put together some old footage (here) that would eventually shed a light on the everything that’s taking place right now – you know, Philip, Sofia and I moving and all that. Philip and I were indeed going through some tough times and now looking back I have to admit that  the signs are there. It was pretty obvious that we were growing apart, talking only about work and spending less and less time together. I excused that with the fact that were newbie parents still struggling to successfully juggle work and life. A denial. That’s what it was. I wasn’t ready to admit that there was a lot more to it. I was crazy excited that Vicky was gonna visit us for...

WE’RE SOOO DOING THIS!

Apartment sold – one way tickets bought. Next month we’re moving to Bulgaria and we take it from there. We have a lot to take care of – sell some of our belongings, pack the rest and ship it to Bulgaria, and also acknowledge that we’re actully moving away. Me. I need to do that. I’ve gotten used to Denmark and its unconventional ways (you can read more about my first impression of Denmark? here). So if you have just moved to Denmark all motivated to go around greeting people to ask them out for a cup a coffee and share your life story – maybe you should reconsider the place. Think of it that way: a coconut – it takes time to crack it open…...
   

‘Loving Tan’ – You Sure Are!

I missed my tan! I haven’t sunbathed or visited the tanning booth for before I got pregnant. To be honest back in the day I was a little bit obsessed with tanning, which, I KNOW, is sooo not good for you. But it wasn’t until I had Sofia in my belly that I actually decided that enough was enough and visiting the tanning booth was left to rot away in the past. Now, not only have I gotten used to my pale looks, but also I have no intention of sacrificing the quality of milk by visiting the tanning booth. A myth or not I would rather stay away from it especially as I plan to breastfeed for a little bit longer. And then...

The Best Damn Soft Ginger Cookies

I bake literally every day. It’s getting a  bit ridiculous, because it’s not like we really feel like having home-baked goodies all the time …but baking does get my mind off things. It’s my 15-minutes time alone where I can focus on measuring the ingredients and nothing else. I literally switch off. Today I omitted the oil and just as I was taking the batter from the fridge all ready to go into the oven I had to add the olive oil… Yep, that’s me. But the cookies turned out great, so no worries :). Tomorrow, the moms from my mother’s group are coming over for coffee at my place, so that’s my excuse for baking today.  To make the cookies – preheat...

BOOM… It’s here!

It’s here! My brand new watch by BOOM watches that I designed myself! And yes, I do have a thing for watches. Not that I ever use them for their real purpose, I have my phone for that…so it should come as no surprise that my watches are always a lil bit behind or forward. Plus, my watches serve a better purpose – to spice my outfits up. So no…I didn’t really need a new watch until I discovered BOOM. I was able to pick the main parts of the watch myself and decide on its final look. And what better for an indecisive individual like me, right? It took me some time to decide exactly which strap I wanted because let’s be honest – all of them...
