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…...

Suede Meets Denim.

Okay it happened! Philip and I spent an hour all by ourselves! His mom was in town and she volunteered to take care of Sofia-Malou while we were strolling around the city hand-in-hand without having to worry whether the little one would wake up and seek the book hehe. This was the longest time I’ve been away from her and it went great. The two of them were having so much fun that I don’t even think she’d noticed my absence! So far so good, but still can’t help but feel a bit anxious regarding the transition of me looking after Sofia 24/7 and having someone to look after her occasionally. I wish we had initiated the process a little...

Let’s Talk Teeth Whitening

Since I gave birth, I’ve been drinking so much coffee that now I don’t even like vanilla lattes anymore. The stronger the better if you ask me! And it’s quite noticeable on my teeth that I’ve been living on caffeine over that last 6 months. They’ve definitely lost their perfectly white shade, so I’ve been trying to find a solution to fix their colour without affecting them too much. I’m saying that because the only two times I’ve had them bleached, the dentists used an overly aggressive teeth whitening treatment (with a laser and a special whitening paste). Even though my teeth turned perfectly white the whole process was way too painful!  My gums were literally burning from the paste and laser, and my...
