This summer I had 3 Weeks No Sugar Challenge (no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners). Scientists say: “It takes 21 days to form a new habit” (No, it doesn’t)). Life without chocolate, ketchup, pizza (sugar is hiding everywhere), sweet cup of coffee,pies, packed juice, candies seemed to be horrible and terrifying, but at the end of the second week you feel a “real” taste of food, find a lot of healthy and delicious new products and recipes. After this challenge, I become more sensitive to sugar, so I considerably reduced the amount of it. It is also a good way to be more attentive in your everyday life, to notice what you buy and what you eat.

When I was a teen, I had a small notebook where I wrote down different quotes and thoughts about love, life and people…For years, I have kept this collection of quotations. Here’s one of my favorite quotes by a German philosopher, poet and composer Friedrich Nietzsche:
“We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.”
Well, that’s still right for me and Valentine’s Day is one of the ways to show my boyfriend, friends and family, how much I love them! Chocolate Meringue Kisses will be definitely sweet and lovely present for your nearest and dearest!
Traveling teaches people far more than anything else. Sometimes one day spent in other places, gives more than ten years of life at home. Anatole France
I believe, a true travel is always a journey of self-discovery.
It also helps us to break habits: mentally, physically, and emotionally.Traveling abroad shakes up life attitudes and patterns. Our world is really so big and has so much to offer and to learn from. So, here is our little trip to Milan (Italy) or Milano (Italia) this winter! ♥ Read more
Fall.. the time my active nature becomes more calm and peaceful. Time for plans, dreams, reflections. Time for coffee with cinnamon, ginger tee, mulled wine, hot chocolate, latte.. somebody stop me, please!))
