In Life, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com5 Comments

I’m now trying to reflect on Kate’s Post I’ve read the other day from a hoteliers’ point of view. School holidays can be a nightmare to manage.

My 5 Best Buys For My Second Baby

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

It’s probably quite a cliche, but also quite true: the second time you’re more relaxed and more experienced. You know what to expect. Until you realise, that your second child is completely different, even as a baby. There are some things, of course, which you try to do differently anyway, having learnt your lessons already. Like not buying all available …

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com6 Comments

That’s how it feelt in the last few days. Listening to my friends how they are having emotionally tough times as their toddlers are starting in the nursery or with a child minder. Most of my friends (just like myself) are typical helicopter parents to small children. But even though I feel like I’m being overprotective and worrying excessively sometimes, I …

Want, Need, Wear, Read – Why I’m NOT Buying The “Four Gift Rule”

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com7 Comments

You’ve probably heard this before: you ought to buy four (that’s 4!) Christmas presents for your kids: something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read. Personally, I couldn’t disagree more. Firstly, clothing items are not exactly presentable, unless your little one just started to discover her/his style (colour or character obsession at this stage really) and that’s …

Review: Eden’s Semilla 100% Pure Organic Jojoba Oil

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

I love reviewing new natural and organic products. This jojoba oil from Eden’s Semilla comes directly from this young U.S. based company selling natural oils and serums. It’s cold pressed and unrefined. We all know that means good quality, but how exactly? Well, the best oils are cold pressed. Using a careful pressing or grinding procedure and ensuring that the temperature …

If you think about it, it really is a tough job to pick a name for that little human being you love the most of all in the whole world. You have to make sure that they won’t hate you for giving them such a stupid name. 🙂 Nomen est omen as they said in ancient Rome: the name is …
