Happy Birthday to my niece!

Teenagers are hard to shop for. Haha, I sound so old right now!

Got a bunch of mini travel sized Balea cosmetics, a Clean and Clear facial scrub for my niece

My niece has a birthday today and here's what I got her: a cosmetics bag, a Clean & Clear Morning Energy facial scrub (I've heard great things about this one), a bunch of tiny travel-sized goodies - Balea deospray, a Rexona deo stick, a Balea young face cream, a Balea feet softening cream; and a very cute floral notepad.

I really hope she likes these!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas tree holiday card

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful time with your families, just like me. I'm visiting my parents' house for the holidays and it's lovely!

Healthy Christmas treats - chocolate covered nuts

The holidays are always hard for those who try to eat healthy. This year I tried to stick to chocolate covered nuts. They were so yummy! What is your favourite dessert around Christmas?

Cute snowmen home decor

When I came my mom had already decorated the house. Every room is filled with snowmen, Santas and whatnot. Me and my dad decorated the tree, which you can see at the top. I love that some of the ornaments are over 50 years old! So pretty!

Traditional Bulgarian Christmas Eve meals

Traditional Bulgarian Christmas Eve meals

There is a tradition in my country to eat vegan on Christmas Eve. We also have an uneven number of dishes - homemade bread (with a lucky coin hidden in it), beans, stuffed cabbage and peppers, baklava. Everything is so delicious on this day, I just love the tradition and all the homemade meals!

Turkey stuffed with rice and pickled cabbage for lunch on Christmas day

And of course on Christmas day we have turkey stuffed with rice and pickled cabbage for lunch. It's so delicious and also healthy.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas in my red sweater

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely time with your loved ones and found everything you wanted under the tree. xo

Kids in the Park

Fun photoshoot with kids in the park

A while ago I took my nieces and nephew in the park for a short photo shoot. Needless to say when you have a bunch of kids and a big lawn  inevitably there will be a lot of running, laughing, laying on the ground and generally - a lot of fun!

I hope I can take them out to play in the snow now that it's winter and take more pictures. It's been a while since I last made a snow angel or a snowman, lol.
