The Lesson Those 5 Months Taught Me

It’s been exactly 5 months since I became the mother of the most lovable little one – Sofia-Malou. It’s been a wild rollercoaster and it seems to me that I won’t be off it anytime soon.  5 months ago I was telling myself that the first 5 months would be the hardest and then all of a sudden my life would go back to normal. Meaning – I’d be able to leave the flat by myself with Sofia being looked after by Philip or someone else. I actually bought us tickets to the Weeknd’s concert (Monday 20th, February) because I assumed that by that point we’ll be able to leave her with her grandparents. Well, it’s not gonna happen. And while...

3 Things I See Differently Since I Became A Mother

My experience as a newbie mommy has changed me a lot – not only in the way I do things, but also in the way I think of and understand life and all that’s happening around me. I catch myself reacting in ways that used to be far from typical for me and for the first time I managed to set my priorities straight. So let’s talk three things that my experience as a newbie mom has changed for me. The Way I Choose To Spend My Time If you know me, you’re probably aware that I’m a social butterfly. Being surrounded by people, constantly communicating be it face-to-face or over the phone charges me with so much energy, I end...

A Quick Recap.

Happy New Year! Did you smile a lot during the holidays? I hope you did! My December?  A bit challenging. A year ago I received the most chilling phone call from a childhood friend to let me know that my best friend has committed suicide (more here). A year has passed by and I still live in denial. I thought that once I begin writing about her I would be able to come to terms with reality and move on. Yet, I often find myself staring at the phone, hoping that she would give me a call to make a sarcastic remark about that sick joke someone made that she is gone. For a year I’ve been postponing seeing our mutual...

Family ‘Hygge’

There is nothing cosier than spending time with the ones you love. Or as Danish people like to say it’s all about the ‘familie hygge’. I’ve tried to explain what ‘hygge’ means in some of my previous posts,  but if you haven’t come across the word – it refers to everything that’s cosy, happy, and snuggly… And, of course, ‘hygge’ has a different meaningt for everyone – Philip once told me that every time he considers something ‘hygge’, a specific childhood memory comes to his mind.

Monday Motivation: Let’s Walk the Walk

I can’t even believe Philip puts up with that – I mean me constantly rearranging the flat and creating all those ‘blogging corners’ just for fun. In case you’ve forgotten there is a dress hanging on the wall in the living room (a lacy one that I haven’t even worn yet (here)), magazines and cameras all over the place, and now a few pair of boots lined up right next to his PlayStation. But if there is one single thing I literally despise is spending a lot of time at home. And here I am forced to do precisely that. So in order to feel sane, I’ve turned our living room in this blogging perfect space with different corners for writing,...
