Read This If You Want to Create a Happier Life

Today we celebrate International Day of Happiness! How awesome is that? Not that we need a day to talk about it or celebrate it. We’re probably thinking about it a bit too much, a little too often and some of us may be obsessing about the question: Am I happy? So I wanted to share…

2017 – An Honest Review

This time last year, I was ending my 2016 blog post with the following resolution: I decided not to make too many plans for 2017. I have one main goal this time – become even better at dealing with change. Ha! Be careful what you wish for, they say. And that is exactly what the…

My First Supper Club

Two weeks into my decision to (once again) quit a corporate job for the dream of entrepreneurial ‘bliss’ and flexibility, I decided to organise a Supper Club. And so I made the first step towards this goal by booking a lovely little venue in East London on 10 Cable Street. A few weeks went by and it sold out. A combination of pride and panic was taking over me gradually. I didn’t sleep the night before.In the car, I called my dad and told him I’m not sure how I am going to do this…

Meet an Old Friend of Mine: Anxiety

Today is not about food. Today is World’s Mental Health Day and I decided to share my story of living with anxiety. I will also share what I’ve been doing to keep it in check and improve the quality of my life.

3 Key Reasons to Choose Organic Products

Organic is not fancy. It’s not just for the wealthy either. I grew up on a farm where my family grew their crops organically in an attempt to save money, not to waste it. So this is what I learned first hand from my father and grandfather, who have been growing crops for over 60…

When Life Gives You Lemons, Turn Them Into Easter Eggs

A couple of months ago I decided I needed to book my first adventure for this new year, as 2016 was so full of new experiences, travelling and the outdoors. So I had to keep it up! And so I did. I booked a wonderful 5-day hiking trip, over the Easter weekend – to the…

5 Things You Can Do to Instantly Feel Happier

I spend a lot of years understanding what I can do to feel happier, almost instantly. I entered my mid 20s with a few embedded thinking patterns that haven’t always worked in my favour: perfectionism, overachieving tendencies and a bit of anxiety. Changing your behavioural baggage, which is created by family, peers, background and education, requires some…

I Didn’t Hate 2016 – Neither Should You

Last week I was sitting on the sofa, in my cosy Bucharest flat, savouring a post-workout treat and contemplating 2016.  Facebook was inundated with jokes and memes about how shit the year was, how many great people we’ve lost and how everything’s changing. While 2016 wasn’t the best, I didn’t hate it. I started the year…

Let’s Be More and Chase Less

I’m 27. Some of you will say I’m so very young, and others will understand I’m basically feeling 30 (which is still young, but quite a milestone for a 20-something year-old). This is the age where you start questioning whether you’re actually going to ‘make it’. And by ‘making it’ I mean – meeting your parents/peers/society’s expectations…

Un Peu de Lumière in London

I am by no means a professional photographer and I actually did struggle to capture the beauty of the lights installations I’ve seen this weekend. This is my first time attending a Lumière festival in London. Although it was freezing this Sunday when I went to check them out, I was so fascinated by the…
