Driftwood Spoons

DIY driftwood spoons

I love nautical home decor. And anything inspired by the sea and the coast. So for me driftwood is the most stylish way to decorate the house. I love collecting it from the local beaches and putting around the house. Today I found really unique DIY project – driftwood spoons. They look amazing, and I can see them being popular on the summer garden party, or picnic on the beach – I love them! What do you think – would you try this project yourself?

Super (Fit) Mummy

super fit mum

I have been reading an article about a stunning 33-year old mum of one girl, who prides herself on her amazing figure, abs, six-pack with no sign of fat and of course the strict regime. It’s the whole lifestyle choice, working out in the gym, very specific diet, no snacking… She looked fantastic, with beautifully shaped bum, belly and thighs. I could never ever tell that she once was pregnant. her belly muscles were so tight, incredible. But one sentence from the article stuck in my mind – that she too has got moments when she wants to sit in front of tv and have a snacking evening, but “it’s all about priorities”… Now, I don’t know if I could ever be able to resist a snacking evening in front of tv – at least once a week – in the name of priorities. I’d rather enjoy the munch fest, and then go for a run in the morning. I am rather slim, but nothing compared to zero-fat-on-my-belly scenario. I think I wouldn’t enjoy my life that much, that any trip to supermarket, food fair, family outing would be restricted by my mind telling me – ‘control yourself, think about your belly!’. I think I’d rather have smaller portion of my favourite food, just to try it, than to completely change my diet to follow regime. What are your thoughts?

One Month to Live

Must Be This Tall To Ride

This is Paul Coakley. He's my age and he died Tuesday. This is what love looks like. This is Paul Coakley. He’s my age and he died Tuesday after just a month of knowing anything was wrong. I think this is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. I think this is what love looks like.

Someone important died and I never got to meet him.

He was married with three kids and has a fourth on the way. He and his wife learned just before Christmas that he had cancer. He had surgery the day after Christmas.

He died Tuesday.

I didn’t know Paul Coakley.

But we have a bunch of mutual friends.

They all say he was amazing and I believe them because they’re pretty amazing themselves. Every one of us knows someone who represents the best of humanity. Those people with an endless supply of kindness and smiles. With infectious laughter. That squeeze the most out of life while constantly giving more of themselves…

DIY Balloon Dipped Jars

DIY Craft Mason Jar Projects baloon dipped mason jars2

I’m spending this morning on Pinterest, trying to work out their analytics – who knew they provide analytics! You can actually see who your audience is, what they love, where they come from and which of your pins are the most popular. Of course, being a female, my attention is being tested number of times, as I get directed to the different boards, to see what’s trending. And while I’m ‘checking’ the boards, I end up pinning things I love myself. I suppose that’s why I love my job 🙂

But as I was checking the DIY Home Decor on Pinterest (a hot subject right now), I found this really quirky craft project – Balloon Dipped Mason Jars! Don’t they look fantastic? And as the base is a rubber, is perfect to put on the glass or ceramic surface, without the risk of sliding. And I love the idea of cushioned base for the jars – I wish I had it on all my glasses and cups!

All you need for this project, is some colourful balloons – you can use some left over ones after the birthday party – pair of scissors and few empty jars.
