Fashionable Shoes

It’s springtime when melting snow leaves muddy and wet ground and makes our jeans, pants and shoes dirty. As a good variant of remaining tidy – rubber boots. Many years ago they were not so pretty and we wear them only when working in the garden or going pick up mushrooms or berries in the woods.
Today we can easily find fashionable rubber boots designed especially for fashion-conscious women. Green, yellow, glamorous red, polka dot boots…they are still practical, convenient and what’s more really beautiful.

Summer Preparations

Spring is the time to prepare for summer. When preparing, women mostly think about their
figures and beauty and I am not an exception. Diets, special cosmetic procedures, exhausting fitness…everything to become more attractive and good-looking this summer.
Looking for the healthiest food, I 've found out that Acai (little purple berry, pronounced “ah-sah-eee’”) helps to lose weight with minimum efforts and what's more is packed with antioxidants, omega oil and amino acids so necessary for our health. To tell the truth I was surprised to learn that such little berries provide so rich health benefits and are referred to as a “superfood”. I believe even if Acai Berry Superfood doesn’t help to lose all the excess weight (if the aim is to lose weight), this little palm fruit will be useful for health in any way.
A long time elapsed since my last post and here I am, happy and like a giant refreshed. Though time flew quickly, holidays were COOOOL!!! It was a busy month for me and fun at the same time. I saw so many friends of mine; met with so many new interesting people that I can say for sure these holidays were a success and were much better than previous ones.

Tradition of Decorating Fir Trees

I adore decorating Christmas tree and suppose all of you decorate it with pleasure. But why do we decorate it and where does this tradition spring from? In the 7th century a monk from Devonshire came to Germany to spend much time in Thuringia in order to teach the Word of God. According to the legend, he used the Fir Tree because of its triangular shape, to describe the Holy Trinity of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. People began to idolize the Fir tree as God’s tree and it became a symbol of Christianity. In 1510, the first Fir tree was decorated in Riga, Latvia. Today we can buy a great variety of decorations, at that time there were mostly candles twinkled through the nights.

Dec. 3rd, 2008

This is my first year when I didn’t go shopping for Black Friday. I was tired of the throng and hours of waiting. My friends bought too many things and Christmas gifts and saved a pretty penny. But not me and I was not disappointed surprisingly.

Holidays Preparations

As I promised myself to change my bad habits to "put off till tomorrow what I can do today", this weekend I did shopping. It’s just November but I have already bought gifts to my daughter, friends and grandma. I adore giving presents and preparing them as well. Next weekend I am going to continue my preparations as the list of relatives and colleagues seems to have no end (LOL...). I hope there won’t be any unpredictable cases and this year I won’t spend hours standing in a queue on the eve of the holidays.

Wedding Anniversary Gifts

In December my parents will celebrate their pearl wedding anniversary. Looking for a gift for them, I was surprised to know that even flowers can be presented according to the year of anniversary. Probably I haven’t been interested in gifts like flowers before and preferred to present keepsakes. So it amazed me and aroused my interest.

Looking for the Top Deals


Watching the Top Ten we can object that this or that position is, say, better than previous one. We do so as we have already used, for instance, those credit cards or have visited these stores or hotels. So we can say which one of the presented is really best considering our own experience. 

If we can’t, Top Ten gives us some reasons why this particular product, whether it is top resort, cosmetics, credit card or anything else, stands among the best deals.

Love and Fate

Do you believe in dating online? I have never visited such kind of sites and didn’t believe, really, that it can be serious until recently when my friend has found her mate online. My husband and I were surprised to learn that they were going to get married after such short period of time when she told us their “online” story. But when we saw them together we understood everything: they are happy and only this is essential. The moral of the story is that no matter where and how you meet your better half, you can’t escape your fate.

Our Fluffy Cavy

We decided to get our family a Cavy as our daughter wanted to have one. I didn't want to have any pet at home until my child grows up but I couldn't restrain myself when I saw this cute white cavy at the pet shop. I can't say that I love rodents as most of them smell badly and look not so pretty as this white "fluffy" so now we have one more member of our family.

Gifts, Postcards...Christmas

Are you preparing for the Christmas holidays? Probably, some of you may think that it's early. I also thought so yesterday when my friend Jill asked me about my plans. It was not a big surprise for me as every year I tried to start my preparations much beforehand but...as usual didn't. So this year I am going to change my bad habits to "put off till tomorrow what I can do today".

We are always mad looking for something we are in need of. Be it a yellow dress, nice purse, a journey of your dreams, or just a new credit card for your expenses - we are all idealists, I believe, and need only the 'best of the best'. Usually we spend days or weeks to find that special something we are in need of. Why do we need so much time and are ready to spend it? There is no definite answer. As for me, I spend it just aspiring to be perfect and in some cases to save money. Say, I can buy cheaper pajamas, save on travelling or make a beneficial credit deal. This is all the cost of spending my time. That's the way I think.

Eat Lemon - Be Healthier

Do you like lemon? You may say oh, it’s sour, but you are able to eat it just because of its vitamins as you know for sure that it is one of the healthiest fruits. Right! Lemon strengthens our immunity. Whether you eat lemon or drink lemon juice you get a Vitamin C. There is no other fruit that contains such an amount of C and that better protects you against bacteria.
What’s more this citrus contains calcium, magnesium and potassium. So if you eat lemon, you can be sure that your teeth and bones will be always OK. I was surprised to know that lemon juice helps grow and build the bones of the unborn child, so it’s very useful for pregnant women.
You may wonder why I am talking about lemon. Winter is coming…be prepared!

Autumn...

Autumn is on the threshold. It's great but a little bit sad as it means that soon sunny days will be over and the mood will be not so joyful. I like autumn because of beautiful nature. It seems that everything around changes its colors and becomes bright and cute. But when leaves falling I always miss about summer and think about coming cold winter.

To Autumn
O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stain'd
With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof; there thou may'st rest,
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe,
And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
Sing now the lusty song of fruits and flowers.

'The narrow bud opens her beauties to
The sun, and love runs in her thrilling veins;
Blossoms hang round the brows of Morning, and
Flourish down the bright cheek of modest Eve,
Till clust'ring Summer breaks forth into singing,
And feather'd clouds strew flowers round her head.

'The spirits of the air live in the smells
Of fruit; and Joy, with pinions light, roves round
The gardens, or sits singing in the trees.'
Thus sang the jolly Autumn as he sat,
Then rose, girded himself, and o'er the bleak
Hills fled from our sight; but left his golden load.

William Blake
