Lazy day

Lazy Day

Wake up with no alarm clock. Let the smell of coffee and fresh baked muffins get you out of bed.
Go on with your morning routine, but with no rush at all. Dress up comfortably, put on your home wear or just stay in your PJ. Moving to make up, stay natural. If you can’t stand a day with no cosmetics put on your face, make just a little touch of mascara or lipgloss. You have to feel comfortable!
Take your time and enjoy your morning cup of tea or coffee. Prepare breakfast for you, your family or friends who spend the lazy day with you. Have fun making your meals, try fancy recipes which you usually don’t have time to make in the workaday rhythm.
Take blankets and pillows and read a book, watch a movie or just listen to music while sitting on a coach or in bed.
Try meditation, it’s so relaxing and it has influence over your life. Find out which part of the day works best for you. Personally, I love mornings, morning meditation is literally the greatest thing which can happen to my day.
During the day you can take a nap or just daydream while lying in bed, lightening candles and burning a joss stick.
Write a poem, draw, paint, sing, bake, do things you love. Isn’t it often like you love doing something or you have a hobby, but you have totally no time to do it?
A lazy day is the answer. As I said before, take your time and do what you really like.
After a lazy day, just before going to bed, listen to your favourite music. It’ll calm you down and make it easier to fall asleep.

Raspberry Tea

Raspberry Tea

Craving for a hot drink full of delicious sweetness?
Try out my favourite winter recipe!

Choose good quality raspberry tea (if possible, take one with no black tea inside, just fruits and flowers).
Then add pre made raspberry honey, made by putting honey and fresh raspberries into a jar. To make it flavored let it stay for a few days, then reverse the jar upside down and after a few days do the same and turn it upside up ūüôā
While adding raspberry honey sirup into your cup do not skip these whole fruits, it adds some extra flavor and makes it look really cute.
That’s basically it!

This raspberry tea is one of my absolute favorite things to drink in winter, also during Christmas time.

# Morning Essentials

# Morning Essentials

Day #2

One the most important of my morning essentials is a cup (sometimes a pot) of Green Tea. Green tea is definitely my favourite kind of tea, but still, I do love white tea and the ones made of hibiscus and fruit.
Talking about benefits of drinking this kind of tea, it’s good to know that it is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. Also it can lower risk of many diseases like cancer, infections, diabetes.
It is thought that green tea can help you with weight loss or with maintaining your weith. Also it can improve brain functions and help you with concentration or in eldery age it can protect you from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Personaly, I love green tea. It gives me a boost of will to live, my life energy every single day. In the morning, as it is not that warm (especially when the fall and winter season comes), the cup of my favourite drink warms me up and makes me feel cozy and relaxed, which is very important for me in the morning.
I absolutely recommend drinking green tea after waking up, it makes mornings a little nicer ūüôā

All the iced teas together

So yummy and so easy to make! Great for a baking heat of summer days! What is it? Homemamde iced tea!
All you will need is your favourite tea essense, any sweetener you like (you can also prepare an unsweetened version of the drink) and ice cubes. It is also good to add some matching seasonal fruits or mint leaves to make the taste more sophisticated.

  • Hibiscus¬† unsweetened iced tea with fresh mint leaves
  • Green tea with pickled pear flavouring sweetened with classic white sugar and decorated with red currant
  • White tea sweetened with cane sugar, decorated with blueberries
  • Classic black tea with honey and lemon

Have fun with experimenting with different kinds of tea and addings. Enjoy your drinks!

Croatia

Croatia

Croatia, ҆olta Island July 2013 and August 2014


Croatia.. the absolute paradise on Earth. Sea, sun, beautiful flowers and suculents everywhere. My family and I lived in an apartment with a small, but still pretty tarese with such a stunning view.¬† Every single morning, after waking up, I’ve been spending long hours on drinking my morning cup of tea, aromatic coffee or fresh orange juice and enjoying the sea views with romantic¬† music playing in the backgroung, which has just accentuated calmness and beauty of the island and of the moment.
All of us have been amused by swimming in the sea sessios, ice-cream-walks, photography trips, watching sunsets (once we’ve even went to see a sunrise). We were having fun from dawn to dusk and from dusk to dawn. We all have fallen in love with the place, so that during next summer we’ve visited exactly the same island, the same town, we have even rented¬† the same apartment. Both of our croacian vacation were perfect. I would willingly come there again and again. Wonderful place.
