Call it home

call it home

They say it doesn’t matter where you live as long as your heart in it and I have to agree to it!

I had lived in many different places in the past in Hungary and in London as well but I always tried to make the most out of it. It doesn’t matter if it was a small or bigger room, living with many people, but my own space, my room was my castle! I always find a way to decorate within a low budget, I don’t go crazy spending a fortune on it, but rather rely on my creative self and using what sources or material I have. And of course, there are plenty of DIY pages and videos on the web so getting ideas shouldn’t be a problem. Continue reading

Weekend in Stratford-Upon-Avon

Weekend in Stratford-Upon-Avon

This year I decided to surprise my boyfriend for his birthday with a weekend in Stratford-Upon-Avon. We have never been there before and I found a good deal to use Wowcher, so I gave it a go!

My plan was to let him know about this journey just before the weekend, but I needed to be sure he is free on those days so I told him beforehand, but it was still a great present for him! We were excited about this short vacation, especially because we had only a few days off together lately and looking forward to spending more time together and just relax.

Spending Christmas with loved ones

Christmas without family

This is my 5th Christmas not being with my family, staying in London and spending time with my partner and friends.

I have lost a spirit in the last few years when I still lived in Hungary. The expectations bother me. Somehow everything has to be perfect for and during Christmas, nobody can say an angry word, we must love our brothers and sisters and we must be good for a few days.

I reached a point when I found this very dishonest. Why those `rules` state for only 2-3 days? We should be kind to others for the rest of the days as well. I believe it is okay to acting as it is a normal day like any other. And anyway – I remember – something always happened and we ended up in a fight. Continue reading

What to buy for Xmas?

What to buy for Christmas?

Christmas is coming and everybody is desperate to find a perfect gift to their loved ones. I like to find personalized gift ideas which I know the person will like it well. Birthdays, Xmas, Anniversaries or for any big event I make an effort to find the right gift. Most of the time I do it very well, but sometimes I just do not have any idea and stress myself out because the clock is ticking. Continue reading

Say yes to an opportunity – Three years together

Say yes to an opportunity - Three years together

My friend – who I lived with – invited me to a Hungarian gig party where I went; even I hardly know the band, but sounded fun. He also invited one of his workmates. We met in our flat for chit-chat and made a journey to the party together. The gig was awesome and the after-party was splendid. We definitely had a great time. The day after he sent me a friend request on Facebook and we started to chat… That’s how it started… 3 years ago… Continue reading

Perfectionism or Self-sabotaging

Perfectionism and self-sabotaging

I have read a blog post about self-sabotaging and it made me realize this is what I used to do!

Of course, I didn’t give a phrase to my actions at that time, but I always found a reason not to do something I really wanted to do. I always wanted to do something 100% perfect before I even started or practice it! But this is not possible – I know it now. Continue reading

Why and how I decided to start over in a foreign country

I realized I have never written about how I started my life in London. I was wondering why… I think because living in London is natural for me. I found my home here.

We all have the big decision in our lives which needs to be made without knowing the outcome. Have feelings about it – good and bad, doubts, fear, opinion, pro and contra argument. Continue reading

When to start fresh

You feel it. Always have a point when you cannot do it anymore. You need something new. A new house, a new job, a new friend or a new life.

I started to feel that something is missing or wrong 5 years ago. I was in a relationship, I had a decent job, I had my diploma but still… life seemed to be empty and I was not happy. Continue reading
