Coffee maker

I have a really small kitchen so I need to spare as much space as I can. So I don't have room for a coffee filter or an expresso machine, so I found this coffee making device is a shop and thought it will be just perfect.

(picture: me, experimenting still with editing)

It works on the same principles as an expresso machine. You put water in the lover side, then it has a small part that comes over the water in which you put a few spoons of coffee and over it comes the upper side of the device. Put it over the fire and when the water heats, the steam goes though the coffee and ends up in the upper side. And there you have you fresh coffee :)
I think I'll make a cold cappuccino ;)

I'm going to meeeeeelttttttttttttt!!!!!

Damn it is HOT outside! I hate summer right now :S I would love summer if it would have warm (not hot and airless) days and cool nights, but here is just over the top heat!

Now moving on to the thing I wanted to share with you today: we're moving to a new blog soon. As soon as I finish with the "designing" and arranging part :)
Hope you'll like ;)

I need to do this as I cannot keep 3 blogs (yes, that actually crossed my mind :D):
this one (personal blog), a cooking blog (not yet released publicly, but it's up and running for a while now) and a craft blog (still in project phase). So I will do 1 single blog to include it all.
I'll try to make 3 list, so you'll be able to separate the 3 main themes of the blog... or some other method, still figuring that part out ;)

Enjoy the summer (if you like this heat)! It's just too much for me though.

The Story of Cosmetics

Many of you may or may not agree with the following video, but the baseline is true and you should consider the possibility to wisely choose your personal care products.

I, at least, am very selective with what I put into and on my body.
U can't even imagine what goes into our beauty and care products :S :(

Stay healthy!

Picture editing

Btw, I am total mess in editing pictures, so HELP anyone!?
Do you have good tutorials or guide books I could use?


I'm a girl that is satisfied and happy with a simple life...

...why is it that these days nobody believes this? Everyone thinks I'm making fun of them when I say that. I don't need much to be happy.
Everyone wants to be rich, successful, hot or famous to be happy, but that is not necessarily happiness.Ask famous or rich people! How many of them get suicidal because "their life is/was hard" or get hooked on on drogs or alcohol or sex as they cant handle their "exciting and happy rich life".
So this isn't a warranty for happiness, no matter how much you'd want to believe that.

I was born in a simple family (not poor that is true, my parents always took care that we have everything needed, but didn't pampered us from principle, not because they couldn't and they did well) and I think that this was more then enough for us to have a happy childhood, have fun, make friends and learn.
I look at kids nowadays: their vacation is fashionable only their parents take them to an exotic holiday and buy them a lot of unnecessary but "cool" stuff.
We didn't care that much about holidays and stuff (ok, maybe we did like barbie dolls, cars and cartoon hero dolls a bit), but friends and the possibility to explore the outside world was so much more fun and educational. I don't want see what kind of adults these kids will grow up to be...

Btw this post was inspire by an IKEA bedroom (it's amazing from where inspiration comes sometimes :P). More specifically, this one:

I was thinking when I saw this: "How cute and simple! This would be enough for a college or rented room. ok, maybe I would by an extra drawer, but basically this is enough for starters".
As long as you have your hope, dreams and you're not ashamed or lazy to work, the rest will come with time. Stuff come and go, so don't get attached to them. I realised that a long time ago, since I started moving a lot as I couldn't carry all my stuff around with me everywhere I went. Most of my stuff I have are still stored at home in my old room.

Oh, in case I haven't told you about this: i have stashed of articles on different themes: home, fashion, health, interesting articles, beauty, etc..
This is my "home folder" for example:

I gather all kind of pictures and articles that I love from magazines, brochures, internet, etc. This is where I found the room from IKEA that is above.
I am also a huge Ikea fan. Simple, affordable and very practical. Also, very versatile. The company and the furnishing product lines give you a huge range of ideas, support and a lot of room to juggle with them.
just look at these rooms:

How about you? What makes each and every one of you happy?

I wanted to write about my lovely friend for a long time now, but I just couldn't find the inspiration to describe her and her hobby in the most wonderful way :)
Bloo is a wonderful and smart foxy lady and her hobby is nail art.
We were room-mates for a while in college and she actually picked up this hobby from our other room-mate Phoebe who had (still does I guess :P) an obsession with having a different manicure each week. Well Bloo took this to a totally new level, to an art form which she masters quite well may I say (although she sees herself as a beginner if you would ask her).
This is not an abstract form of nail art which you need special training or tools for.
Of course you need a few shades of nail polish (whatever you prefer) a dotting tool or a toothpick (yes, you read right) and a whole lot of patience, creativity and exercise :)
The limit is where your creativity ends and Bloo has an imagination that knows no limits :D

She also makes nail design tutorials for who wants to learn to make the designs. These tutorials are detailed step by step from the base coat to the top coat, check them out on her YouTube channel:

Here are a few of her designs to enchant your eyes and make you wish to try this creative hobby ;)

Lunch Boxes


I was thinking that I should really start taking home made food to the office as well.
After gaining some unexpected weight (I really cant figure out how and why) I decided that probably my lunch food has too much calories ... if not then I really have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I don't eat junk food, anything that is processed food, too salty or sweet stuff (closer to non from the second category, better said), greasy food, fried stuff, etc. More then this and I'm going to eat only fruits, veggies and teas :D
Of course that I still have some occasional "sins" related my eating habits, but these are occasional and not from the above mentioned categories :)

sooo, getting back to the lunch boxes. Remember when we were young and small mom packed sandwiches and fruits to school? God, she screwed her brains out to make us interesting and tasty snacks to assure that we will not throw them away and we will eat it. I can only see this now, then it seemed so natural and normal.

Made a search on Google to see some ideas to lunch boxes and I found some cute and interesting ideas for boxes and recipes and I'm here to share them with you also, maybe you also have some thought of taking home made food with you ;)

THE CHILDREN’S LUNCH BOX by Linda Bugaziyanos over at

Take a look at this post, how cute these boxes are?! It would be a pitty not to make food this good looking :D

Some lunch box advices

other pictures found over Google (sorry, don't know the links anymore)

And a lot more :)

Now I need to go buy a bag and some smaller plastic or glass boxes to take my food to work as well ;)
Wish me luck!
