Favourite cartoons

Adults watch cartoons too.

I’m one big child, specially when it comes to cartoons. I let myself watch them when I’ve ticked off everything listed on my to do list. It’s my time and I love it. These are not listed in any particular order, like them all and watch them all:

  • Phineas & Ferb: seriously, whatever it was you’ve dreamed of as a child, they made it, definitely a cartoon to live out childhood fantasies and don’t get me started on the music, I mean Love H√§ndel?! ūüôā
  • Freakazoid: his uncomplicated and happy personality is awesome, if I’m ever down, he puts me in a good mood. The rest of Steven Spielberg’s cartoons are also very¬†entertaining,¬†they used to run them¬†on Cartoon Network (when the channel was still watchable);
  • Tom & Jerry: the oldest ones
  • Dexter’s laboratory: I have such good memories of these cartoons as we would perform scenes with my cousins, I loved¬†all those¬†playtime days with them (and Dee Dee is awesome :));
  • Scooby Doo, Mystery Incorporated: sometimes surprisingly extremely creepy and morbid for a cartoon, but still had to watch all the episodes, they just draw you in;
  • Fish police: it is actually an adult cartoon, but I used to watch it when I was less than 10 years old and it didn’t appear to¬†do any damage ūüėČ
  • Droopy the master detective: not exactly a feminist cartoon, but given I am a feminist now and still don’t mind watching it, this one also apparently didn’t do any damage;
  • Tom & Jerry kids: we used to watch it on video cassettes over and over again. The charactes¬†are just cute, my favourite¬†part the one with the arcade machines, still laugh to tears when I watch it
  • Looney tunes: the old ones as well as the newer ones, taz being my absolute favourite, following right after is beaky buzzard
  • Beetlejuice: a bit disgusting at times, but excentric characters are just awesome¬†(in films, cartoons and in real life), so¬†it¬†fits the profile ūüôā

What about you? Do you watch cartoons –¬†in your own fun time? Which are your favourite – any recommendations? ūüôā

Owl city

owl city

I just got the chance to finally listen to the last Owl city’s album, Mobile Orchestra¬†and this whole post just flew to my mind. Adam continues to pour his soul into his music as this album is a continuation of his colorful artistic expressions. I meant to write about his music (the author is the amazing Adam Young) for years now. I just couldn’t find enough beautiful words to describe the mesmerising music and the feelings I get every time when¬†listening to it. I still can’t find all the words but at least found some, listening to the mentioned album,¬†to write about it now. Continue reading

Outdoors, however, is a different story. In nature the best and most beautiful music is bird songs, crickets, wind that gets caught in the tree tops, insects buzzing, flowing rivers and streams… Endless…

Best vegan hair mask

best vegan hair mask

Weather, dust, washing, brushing and different sorts of heat treatments affect the hair short and long term. It’s very good to nurture it every once in a while by using masks. I’m referring to long hair, I’m not familiar with treating short hair. Pixie ladies out there, you can let us know, how you take care of your hair. ūüôā

When starting with using hair masks I went for the natural ones first. So coconut oil. I would apply it, starting a couple cm from the roots down to the tips, put on a shower cap, warm it up with a hairdryer and leave it like that for two hours so it would penetrate the hair where it could. Then I washed it thoroughly. I would do this about once per two months. The problem was, no matter how thorough I was, I couldn’t get all the oil out and my hair would look greasy after it’s dried. But it also made it very smooth and silky, so I insisted for about a year. Continue reading

Favourite lifestyle blog and vlog

Christine Kobzeff, former Pinksofoxy. I found her vlog¬†“by coincidence”¬†some years ago¬†searching for something about minimalistic lifestyle, watched one video and got hooked.

This vlog (and blog) inspires to lead a more successful life, to be thoughtful and always be present or even to completely change a lifestyle. For one it made me change my interior design style, I mean, I was a minimalist before but this vlog helped me create an even cleaner space. It also got me into growing plants. Before I saw houseplants as solely functional (meaning I would only grow herbs, not that I did :)), whereas now I treat them like pets and look forward to every new branch, leaf or flower bud and am happy when I see them growing well under my care (more about growing indoor plants in one of my future posts, stay tunned!).

Short workouts with great results

I have been following Zuzka Light for some years now and she has the best exercises I’ve ever come across, perfect for executing at home, requiring¬†very little¬†time, space or equipment.

If, like me, you quickly get bored of repeating the same exercises, these are just perfect for us and for anyone, really. If you don’t get bored that easily, you can always repeat the¬†one you like, as many times as you like. Be careful not to do it to much, though. Moderation is key.

It’s best to do these exercises every morning. I do them before eating (I don’t eat breakfast, taking into account the natural cycle of metabolism –¬†more about this in one of the future posts) and, if I have time, one more round in the evening. The result is – you feel incredible and look accordingly.

The best thing is, we can moderate them to be as easy or as challenging as we want. And they’re free,¬†no fitness membership needed!

Here are some of my favourite exercises, together targeting the whole body, all muscle groups.

Something to begin with:
