November Rain Waterproof Poncho Review And Giveaway

In Giveaways, Reviews, Style by eva.katona@yahoo.com106 Comments

There’s no bad weather just bad clothing! I wear sneakers or wellies, gilet with a hood and jeans from autumn to spring. My husband keeps making fun of me, how I became a “Surrey Mummy”.  Well, we’re not going to sport an evening gown to drop the kids off at school, are we? What I was actually missing is a …

Fornessi Carry Me Wrap Review

In Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

I use baby carriers with Babi a lot, sometimes even at home to calm her down (teething…) or help her to take a nap. It also played an important role in establishing breast feeding in the first few weeks. It’s good to keep more than one, just in case, or for different tasks. I have never tried less constructed baby …

Why Holiday Prices Are Higher During School Holidays?

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. In families, where both parents work, one of them HAS to take days off, unless you have other baby sitting solutions arranged. So now that you’ve got the kids for a whole week, …

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

When Susie from This Is Me Now  tagged me with the #RockingMotherhood tag to take part in this lovely challenge, I got a little nervous at first. I immediately loved the idea, but, really, am I rocking this motherhood thing? Patricia from White Camellias had this wonderful idea to celebrate our achievements as mamas, the way we see them and take …

Vegan And Raw Mini Energy Bars

In Foodie Me, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com6 Comments

We all know, just how bad refined sugar is for us. If you ever tried to cut down on your sugar intake, you know how hard it can be. Low-sugar and “sugar-free” substitutes are not healthy either (and they taste terrible). Dried fruits are great to satisfy your sugar craving. They are full of fibre, and antioxidants (especially figs and …

Skinny And Vegan Mediterranean Vegetable Soup With Pearl Barely 

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com3 Comments

You know the type of craving, when it’s cold and gloomy outside and you’re dying for a hot, satisfying soup. But you suddenly realise that you have nothing at home for anything “classic”. Then, you start to search through the fridge and the cupboard for possible ingredients. I quite enjoy this actually, letting your tastebuds and nose to take you …

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 …

I’m Happy It’s School Term Again, Does This Make Me A Bad Mum?

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 …

Vegan Paneer And Butternut Squash Curry

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

It's so good to have a big bowl of spicy and warm comfort food on a cold winter day. Vegetarian and vegan curries can satisfy the pickiest meat eaters too. The spices do the trick. If you can't get vegan paneer, you can substitute it for other vegan cheese, as long as it's soft enough. Add extra chickpeas, spinach, or …

I’m back! ? It’s been a long time, but I have a cute, 7 months old excuse. Sorry I had to miss you for a few months, but finally it feels like I’m getting a hold of coping with two children. Total amazeballs and absolute shocker 7 months. Anyways, December. No better way to return to my favourite linky, it …
