Getting back in shape

RESIZE I wish I look like the woman in the photo but after two children, (latest addition only 8 months old), gaining 3,5 stone in the process among other wonderful things 🙂 …Now happy to report I am back to my old self. Thanks to healthy eating, well … could’ve exercised more , and some special tea. I never thought this will work for me, but it did. Try it for yourself I promise, you won’t regret. tea


Unfortunately it’s not the only Thanksgiving where we kill an animal when we ‘celebrate’ something. Not even one family holiday goes without a turkey or lamb on the table and most of us are happily feasting on it without thinking it’s like a sacrifice, only now, we are eating the poor animal probably to feel less guilty (don’t kill it unless you are going to eat it) and then we even have the arrogance to say a grace. Can we actually be grateful and have great family holiday without the slaughter?!

Thanksgiving outfit

holiday outfit
Great outfit for any occasion, not too casual not too formal but classy and cool. Grey trousers are great, slimming (surprisingly) and interesting. Men, stay away from black trousers if you can, find them quite old-fashioned and dull! Don’t forget to accessorize your outfit with a colourful scarf and a wide smile, does wonders to any outfit 🙂

Would love to see my man wearing something similar.

Your Song: Lessons from an African Tribe


When a woman of a certain African tribe knows she is pregnant, goes to the jungle with other women, and together they pray and meditate until they learn “The song of the child.” When a child is born, the community gets together and they sing their song. When the child begins his education, people get together and he sings his song. When he becomes an adult, they get together again and sing. At his wedding, the person hears his song again. Finally, when the soul is leaving this world, family and friends are gathering and just like during his birth, sing their song to accompany him in the “journey”. In this African tribe, there is another occasion when the people sing the song. If at some point the person commits a crime or becomes aberrant is taken to the centre of the village and the people of the community form a circle around him. Then they sing “his song.” The tribe recognizes that the correction for antisocial behaviour is not punishment, is the love and memory of his true identity. When we recognize our own song, we have no desire or need to hurt anyone. Your friends know “your song” and sing when you forget it. Those who love you cannot be fooled by mistakes you have committed, or dark images you show to others. They remember your beauty as you feel ugly, your wholeness when you’re broken, your innocence when you feel guilty and your purpose when you’re confused.
