Smoothies, shorts and skirts

Hi everyone, i will start with some good news, I got 82 out of 100 in the test in a course I failed twice! That is, i can finally put this course behind me and I can continue with my degree in literature.

Last week I got blood test results I did and of course the results showed that i have anemia, but in addition I lack various vitamins and I feel weak recently. I want to get what my body needs from natural ingredients rather than from pills so I decided that I want, among other things, to drink a smoothie every morning with all the products that will strengthen me and my body.

So I surfed the internet and found this video that, besides the recipes for healthy and nutritious smoothies, also gave me an idea for convenient storage of the ingredients that saved me the preparation phase. Tomorrow is the day when I buy groceries at the supermarket so I made a note of all the ingredients I need and I promise to keep you updated on the result.

It is also very important to drink a large amount of water, since I left the sugary drink and started drinking water my facial skin just became more radiant and healthier. There is no replacement for water. speaking of facial skin, I have to recommend Pixi’s Glow Tonic, it is slightly more greasy than the rose tonic I used to use but the result is more glowing, I absolutely loved it!

Recently, I don’t feel like eating heavy meals and I have no appetite so I decided to put some corn in the oven. I mixed some salt with oil and smeared the corn on the cob with the mixture and put them in a preheated oven at 220 degrees for 50 minutes. The result, Yami!

Later in the day, I arranged my closet. In the last few weeks, in this heavy heat of Israel, I can only wear shorts and short skirts, I can’t even wear long pants, just the thought of it makes me uncomfortable shivers. Here are some of my new shorts and skirts. Notice that everyone fits with a white T-shirt.

That’s it for this time, xoxo.

Third time, ice cream!

This day I started studying for a test that will take place in early June. This is a course in my literature degree, a course that makes me a hard time. I failed this course already on two tests, hoping for the third time to be a success. When I study for a test, I like to write in a notebook things that I should remember from the material while reading the textbook, it greatly facilitates me and helps me remember the material. And of course a kitschy girl like me will hold the most amazing notebook in the world. This is a spiral notebook I purchased in Accessorize store, on the cover theres a beautiful unicorn figure and there is also a zippered pocket for storing pages or documents.

In the afternoon, I took time out, made myself stuffed cigars with meat, made myself gravy and made a cherry tomatoes salad. This is a lazy lunch like me today but it was really tasty.

While eating I watched a new reality series I love “Alone – the beast”. This is a series from the History Channel, each time documenting three people who do not know each other who are trying to survive for a month with only the clothes with which they came. This is a very interesting series that, ironically, I love to watch while I eat.

In the afternoon the whole tribe had already arrived home and the mess started. I don’t know what the weather is all over the world but here were 36 degrees so I decided to go down with the kids to the backyard to enjoy some of the nature and the green. It was my day. Here are some pictures from the pastime in the yard:

See you next time!

A relaxing weekend

Friday began with breakfast in front of the sea. Usually on Fridays my husband and I sit down to have coffee in various cafes or restaurants but due to the situation all restaurants are closed and allow only Take aways, which is what we did. We chose a restaurant that serves crazy delicious Georgian food by the sea, we chose a breakfast that included Hachapuri, which is basically a dough filled with cheese, a real paradise, next to the pastry we also took two cups of coffee and sat down with the whole package on a bench facing the sea.
It’s something we wouldn’t do naturally, take take away to sit on a bench, we would usually prefer to sit comfortably in a restaurant, but we really enjoyed sitting in the open air like that, just the two of us talking freely.

On Saturday, we went to the sea with the kids. In general, it is still not allowed to go to the beach because of the Corona but we could not resist and miss a sunny and warm day like it was yesterday. So we dressed the kids in swimsuits, cut watermelon and went to the beach for the first time since last summer.

The kids were happy, they ran around, put out energy and had a lot of fun, they came home tired and satisfied. I love summer and I’m excited it’s already here.

Homemade pickles, brunch and wall rugs

My posts, starting today, will look a little different from recent posts. I realized that there is no need for to plan the content in advance, everyday life brings with it enough moments of inspiration and ideas that anyone can be inepired by and embrace them for themselves. So from today I will post posts in them I will share with you my daily life and the things I experience, the things that makes me happy and in general I will try to bring you guys interesting content, unplanned content that comes in motion authentically and flowing. Welcome to join me.

Yesterday, which was Tuesday, I started making a pickle jar with the vegetables I love: cauliflower, carrots and Kohlrabi. The vegetables are not ready yet, I will give them another day, and of course I have no idea how they came out (this is my first time) but I do not believe that such a simple task can fail.

how to make? I separated the cauliflower into relatively small flowers, cut the carrots into thin slices as much as possible and the Kohlrabicut into sticks, the vegetables I poured into the jar (I put the vegetables in the order that i cut them but I would recommend you to mix the vegetables before adding them to the jar so you don’t have to dig to the depths of the jar to get some greenery) I poured three glasses of water, one glass of vinegar, two tablespoons of salt, a little drops of lemon juice and a quarter cup of oil. I flipped the bottle several times to mix the ingredients and that’s it, two or three days and it’s ready. I love to eat pickles next to the meals and also as a snack alongside the wine or vodka redball (yes I know) that I usually drink on Friday nights, promising to keep you updated on how they came out when they will be ready.

I spent the rest of the day with my two boys (4 and 5 years old) and the 2-year-old baby that I was home with because of the corona virus but in the first second when I had a little time to myself, which happens when the baby falls asleep around 12 o’clock, I decided to pamper myself with a small snack.

I made two Fried Eggs, which I placed on two slices of bread smeared with pesto, and of course, I made myself a hot cup of coffee. While eating I watched Lydia Elise Millen’s YouTube channel, I love watching her content recently. Her YouTube channel, at least recently, revolves around home designing and this is because she recently bought her dream home that she still designs, fashion and beauty. Some may say that she presents a picture that is too perfect and even artificial, but for me, watching her content fills me with positive energy, the content inspires me, motivates me, and most of all, I love watching people that are happy and feeling good about themselfs, we have the opposite infront of us all day long. I encourage you to watch her channel if this content interest you.

Today was a super exciting and joyous day for me, today finally, after two months when the kids were with me at home because of the corona virus, they all went to kindergartens! Yas! Freedom!!! Those two months that they were with me at home were challenging, exhausting, funny, upsetting, those days were a squeezing emotions machine. It was difficult for the children allso as well, because in the end the life they known was taken from them. In addition to the quarantine, a person very close to me who I love passed away and another family member was hospitalized (thank goodness he is now in a good shape and healthy) For moments it felt like a movie, everything ran too fast and the extraordinary and extreme plot added to the feeling that it was some fictional plot and that we would wake up any second from the dream . it was not a dream, but it seemed like the beginning of its end, the children retorned to kindergarten and I started to breath again. This morning, after putting the kids in kindergarten, I decided to visit my sister and my mom, who lives with her, and sit down for a cup of coffee and a morning chat. The three of us sat in the balcony facing the sea and introduced me to the new crafts they created. In a previous post I mentioned the fact that my mom knits everything, including covers for decorative pillows, so get this three new pillow covers she knitted:

amazing or not?! In addition to my mother, my sister also has creative hands and head, she has also started to create insanely cool wall rugs

She uses a special weaving facility and special tools to create this stunning rug. The fabric she made has all kinds of different elements, for example, at the top of the fabric there are pom-poms and down the fabric there are wires that come off it. After talking to my sister, I realized that this is a very easy job to sink into and lose a sense of time so if you decide to try it, take it into account.

my sister purchased the facility and accessorise from amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/WILLOWDALE-Multi-Craft-Extra-Large-Develops-Creativity/dp/B07ZH96DXS

My sister also didn’t send me home empty-handed, and gived me three t-shirts

two of them she bought from the online store ‘NEXT’, the shirts are white with with inflated sleeves, the other shirt she bought from ‘MANGO’ but was small on her. So thanks to my sister for the presents and for the kindness. In general, I have to replenish my wardrobe with summer clothes, if you have offers for online sites that offer beautiful, high-quality clothing and that ships around the world wrote to me in response here.
