Someone stop me!!!

I cannot help it! I'm just adding blogs I NEED to read to my google reader on a daily basis! And then I complain that I don't have the time to read all of them :)
But I cannot help it! When you find blogs that are totally awesome and you just NEED to know what is going to be posted next on that particular blog, then there is no other option than to add it to the "to be followed" list :D (without later complains)

For example you can find out about stuff like Five Tibetan Rites
I read about it on this lovely blog : Iona Hearts.
Check it out! It has more of these interesting stuff in there ;)

So Tibetan Rites... have you heard about it before? I haven't. It looks like this:

Picture here

It is defined as "an exercise program for youthing"
The benefits are as follows: "looking much younger; sleeping soundly; waking up feeling refreshed and energetic; release from serious medical problems including difficulties with spines; relief from problems with joints; release from pain; better memory; arthritis relief; weight loss; improved vision; youthing instead of aging; greatly improved physical strength, endurance and vigor; improved emotional and mental health; enhanced sense of well being and harmony; and very high overall energy."
Looks promising to me and not hard to do, you just need to be constant in with the "ritual". Shall we try it? ;) although more info will be needed on the subject so wish me luck with the background search :P

Enjoy your life!

Presenting "Sweet, Sour, Bitter" Posts - Testimonial

I'm going to present to you from now on my adventures in the kitchen.
One thing about me is that I (almost) never respect a recipe to the letter, it is always personalized according to what comes in my mind (and my fridge:D) per the moment. I recommend you to try it. It is fun and you may just discover some new recipe that you will love more then the original one.

Cooking for me is fun, passionate, relaxing and healthy.

I have an extra small 2x3 m kitchen, but that will not stop me from cooking and eating what I want and love.

You will not find in my post way too healthy and obsessively clean cooking, because cooking is not about that!!!
Cooking is fun and adventurous and passionate and free.
"Free your mind and the rest will follow" said an old song, and that is what cooking should do to you as well.
Be open minded, relaxed and HUNGRY and I warranty, there will be little possibility for you to do something uneatable :)))

I am also not against meat or cooked food or anything else that became an obsession to people nowadays and are trying (unsuccessfully may I add) to prove that they are stronger then their own instincts and body.
Eat what your body is asking for, don't listen to everyone (unless they are nutritionists)! Eat a bit of everything. Diversity is the key and diversity is the only thing I ask from my food. Don't build up frustration! Rather cut down on the volume of "not so healthy food" or even better, find a healthy alternative, then to build up frustration. Think healthy and delicious!

I honestly admire vegans and vegetarians. I would never be able to do that.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE vegetables and fruits (they are the major part of my diet), but I could never give up a juicy fish fried on the BBQ or a chicken made in the oven with some potatoes and herbs... yamm, I'm hungry already :D
So if you don't share my point of view, just cut me some slack and move on.

My mom and grandma are my mentors when it comes to cooking, but I am proud to say that I posses a serious dose of born talent :P How much? well... I guess you will need to stick around and find out ;)

Enjoy life and food!



Soooo, we're here! Welcome to the new blog. Here is the link to my old blog in case you stumbled upon this one the first time.
Isn't this great?
I love the background, just fits perfectly the name of my blog. I know it's a standard Blogger background, but when you love something, you just do, you don't question a girls taste ;)
Finally one single blog, unified and easier to write to as I have more topics to write about, not 3 different blogs with different topics.
Maybe you don't know, but I was also starting a cooking blog for which I have at least 30 recipes ready to post and more coming every time I get into the kitchen :)))
From now You will see those here too, hope you'll enjoy it.
Later on today I will post the "testimonial" for that part of my blog as well, so You know where I stand related to this topic.
I will also post some of my craft projects which I unfortunately neglected for the last couple of years, but this cannot go on any more! This is one of the things that makes me happy and neglecting it just builds up frustration. As much as I don't have time for it, I will NEED to make time for it.
And third (but certainly not least!) I will continue posting stuff that I find inspirational, amazing and beautiful wherever I may stumble upon then. Stuff that make you go from "WOW!" to "OMG!", stuff that make you think, stuff that make you think "Why didn't I came up with this idea?" or "I want one of those!". You know what I mean! ;)
Hope you continue to enjoy reading this blog.
Take care !
