30 Upbeat And Mellow Songs For My Labour Playlist

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

The Time Magazine recently published an article about Spotify releases birthing playlist which gave me the idea to make my own “mix tape”. It’s not only fun (I always liked to make “best of” lists in my head, like in High Fidelity) and gives you the satisfaction of doing some preparation for when in labour, but it could work as your last …

Review: Aquatopia Antwerp – Doesn’t Worth The Money

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

A few weeks ago we visited my cousin who lives near Antwerp and we wanted to spend a couple of hours in Antwerp: visit some children-friendly place and have a nice lunch near the train station. We found both challenging. Our first idea was the zoo, but most of it was under reconstruction so we decided to visit Aquatopia which was just …

Cauliflower And Paneer With Coconut Curry

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love paneer, it’s a good base for vegetarian curry recipes and by adding it to literally any veggie curry or replacing meat with it works out always for me. With cauliflower I am a bit ambivalent, I usually need a masking flavour to make it tastier. Curry is one of them. This time however, I was craving coconut curry and …

Quick Super Cheesy Zucchini Risotto For Kids

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Well, obviously, it’s not only for kids and because it’s got no wine in it, it’s not exactly a risotto. But tasty and cheesy, Bobcat loved it. I cooked it last night when I was craving curry and Bobcat is not a huge fan of curry (at the moment. He used to like it, but he’s quite picky nowadays). So …

My Baby Shower Wish List – Gift Guide For New Mums

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Frankly, I have a lot of things already and no need to buy them again, since my daughter will be my second child. I do believe in recycling and also that you don’t need half of the stuff the adverts telling you to buy. Second time around, we all do things differently as we’re more experienced. Or at least that’s …

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love finding new ways how to make avocado a little bit mor attractive for my family. Instead of trying to make them understand how good is avocado for them (it contains very little fat, but lots of Omega 3 and 6,  fiber, potassium, vitamins E, K, B6 and C and protein) I rather just create tasty food with these super …

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com4 Comments

Well, that was a busy March! I don’t even know where to start 🙂 1. Bobcat turned two. He’s a big boy now, just unbelievable how time flies. We had my parents staying for a few days and we threw not only one, but two parties: one for the family and another one for our local mummy club friends. I came …

In Life, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Simply sent me these washing tablets to review them, as I often do eco – and baby friendly product reviews. Their washing tabs fall into both category. As I already wrote about it, my son had mild eczema, now he is on the mend – but we follow some strict rules. To ensure that he’s skin stays eczema free, one …

Nautical Birthday Party Ideas For Children

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com5 Comments

I decided to go for nautical themed decoration for Bobcat’s 2nd birthday party. I really like nautical design (of everything) and it’s easy to coordinate. Because it’s easy to coordinate colour and pattern-wise, it doesn’t cost an earth either. Unlike character based theme parties you can easily find substitutes if you need to. There’s also plenty of opportunities for a …

Barcelona Revisited (Hotel SB Diagonal Zero Review)

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

We travel to Barcelona every year or two because I love there, it’s one of my favourite places in Europe. I lived in Spain for a few years, it feels like home 🙂 It’s always good fun, very child-friendly and a lot warmer in March than in London. This time we wanted to be near the beach but still close …
