My Travel Wishlist 2017

I’ve been looking for a travel bag for a long time, but I’ve been struggling to find the right now. Today I stumbled upon MAHI’s Armada Duffle Bag  (here) and as my birthday was back in June I’m adding it to my personal travel wish list. I just can’t wait to lay my hands on it, and then take it along with me to make some memories around the world. As MAHI gives you an  option for having your initials on it – I will be definitely having an AJ on it. It’s also big enough to fit some of  Sofia’s belonging, so that I will no longer have to carry two hand luggages. I‘m a little bit sick and tired of carrying...

Dining out With Our Baby at Ernie Hemingway

Philip and I are laid back parents. We dine out every time we get the chance, and Varna was no exception. We were visiting different restaurants every day, but the one that won our hearts was Ernie Hemingway with a terrace overlooking the sea and pretty marvellous interior.   That’s us when we we’re out. Philip behind the camera, me having a glass of wine, and Sofia taking a quick nap before she found out that we are out and about…you know, she has that duty to win the hearts of everyone around.  We went for the Bulgarian way, splurging on seafood and other tasty bits.. The calamari and salmon tartar were the definite winners! Their texture and taste were divine! And that’s Philip with his...

My Face Essentials For The Beach

I skipped sunbathing last year, too afraid to expose my bump to the sun. I guess it was exactly when Sofia-Malou was still in my belly that it hit me that spending too much time in the sun wasn’t at all healthy for  the skin (and my little one). It’s common sense, but I needed to have someone else to care about to actually stop spending hours under the sun. Also, I have a blemish-prone skin, which means that every time I squeeze a spot, it’s very likely that a dark spot will appear in its place. If you have the same problem, you are probably aware that sun can only worsen the situation. Exactly because of that I’ve begun applying sun protect...

My Postpartum Body

Before I got pregnant I thought I was leading a healthy lifestyle. In reality I was eating a low-carbs diet,  exercising a little bit too much and being way too conscious about the foods I was eating. The thing is – obsessing over what you eat and being a health-freak doesn’t really make you a  healthy living being. But it wasn’t until I conceived that I finally got in terms with that that and began to really care for my body and treat it with respect. I learned that eating less is far more worse than eating small portions but often. I grasped that exercising a few times a week is enough and there is no need for me to hit the gym every...

Happy Children’s Day, Sofia-Malou!

You’re a little bit over 8 months, Sofia. And quite frankly, that’s the biggest milestone you’ve reached so far. We’ve been inseparable since the day you came into my life. And that’s exactly the reason why I often fail to notice the extent to which you’re changing every single day. But here you are, only a few months away from turning 1 and already giving me kisses, copying different sounds and standing up all by yourself. You’re also kinda crawling, something I thought you’d skip and go straight to walking. The first time you gave it a go was a few days ago, when I was performing the Downward dog. You did almost the same in your attempt to get on...
