What’s on your list?

I wonder if you are a fellow “Friends” fan? I must have watched all of the episodes multiple time and they still make me laugh.

 

Do you remember Ros’ laminated list of 5 celebrities who was allowed to sleep with?

 

Today I wanted to share my list, with a difference:) Because we’re not going to talk about sleeping with celebrities, but the experiences I want to have in my life:)

 

What do you want to do when you grow up?

“What do you want to do when you grow up?” my Dad used to ask me with an infuriating regularity. I hated that question because frankly I had no idea what the hell I wanted to do when I grow up. I was too busy being a teenager, having meltdowns and trying to get by at school.

 

The more he asked, the more annoyed I got, because I felt I…

My story

Last week you read an apology letter to my Body, and today I wanted to take it a step further and share a little bit more of my story with dieting and body image.

In this video I’ve shared what I was led to believe at a very early age, habits I developed and what I did to overcome them. I realised that what I was craving…

I cried in Rome

I spent four days in Rome recently crying my eyes out most of the time and I’ve never been happier.

 

These were tears of happiness, pure joy and gratitude.

 

20 years ago (can’t believe it’s been that long!) I spent 3 months in Rome, living with a host family and working as an au pair. It was the first time when I was going to be away for that long and…

It all kicked off with a lunch with a friend on Friday. We were meant to meet, have quick catch up over food, and then get on with our days. We parted 6 hours later because I had dinner reservation with the leading man of my life. We coached…

And so it begins

This is when it all starts. A new beginning, one might say. Which by the way always makes me wonder – can you have an old beginning? But I digress.

Friday was monumental, I didn’t believe the day would come. I walked out of my office for the last time. After four years (and 8 years in the building) I left with a bunch of flowers, presents, memories, experience and…

Fear? Who is talking about fear?

Six weeks ago I made a big decision, took a gamble, and resigned from my well-paid, secure job. Did I mention the holiday package and a pension plan? And by the way – I don’t have a new, better job to go into. In six weeks’ time (after I finish serving my 12 weeks notice) I will be unemployed.

From a newsletter I’ve just received from Jacob Sokol:

Growth comes from…

Best time to start…

… is now. It is my third blog and it still feels exciting. The very first one, I started 10 years ago, when I first arrived in the UK. It was very personal and a way to keep friends and family updated. It still exist, but I don’t post there anymore.

My second blog, ChilledOnions, I started in 2013, around the time I was seriously evaluating my options. I kind…
