Living Abroad: Katerina - Czech Girl in the UK and the Netherlands

I can see that you like my interviews with people who lived or live abroad so I'm here with another one, interesting one! And I might be even happier because this time it's an interview with Czech girl who's already lived abroad twice and loved it :)

Hi Katerina! You're currently living in the Netherlends but before we get to that I'd like to ask you about the UK because you spent half a year there. Where exactly were you and why did you move there?
People often want something new and I was looking for new experiences and I wanted to find my boundaries. I spent one semester as an exchange student at the university in Bristol. Bristol is an amazing student city in southwest England. The UK is a great place for life I just need to forget the well known windy British weather that I couldn't get used to. I traveled a lot while I lived in the UK. I love their architecture, brick houses, old British pubs as well as wild countryside that looks like from Emily Brontë's or Daphne du Maurier's novels.

Blogging Tips: How to Break Through Writer's Block

I've been blogging on and off since I was 12 and I definitely know what it means to have writer's block. Throughout all these years I've found some things that help me to overcome it and I'd like to share them with you!

There are several things I do when I don't feel like writing. Sometimes it takes days but there are also periods when I don't want to sit down and write anything for weeks. I found a couple of ways how to overcome this struggle but there's one thing that never helped me: forcing it. So what do I do to start writing and loving it again?

Healthy Recipe: Avocado-Banana Brownies

It has only been a week and I'm already trying many healthy recipes because I want to change my meals as many times as possible so I'm still motivated to stick to my New Year's resolutions...

I love anything brown. It means there could be chocolate in it. And I looooove chocolate. Brownies are my favourite desserts. I could eat them every day, not kidding. But now I'm trying to lose weight and brownies are usually full of sugar which wouldn't fit into my diet (don't get me wrong, I'll definitely have some later but for now I want to stick to my diet plan as much as I can). But I've heard about brownies made of avocado or red beans. So I decided to buy avocado this time (even though I don't really like it) and found the easiest recipe I could.

New Year's Resolution: 5 Simple Rules of Healthy Lifestyle

Yes! I started my weight loss journey at the beginning of 2017! I really needed to do it and I'm glad I started... 

I know that there is a saying when it comes to weight loss: Nobody said it was easy. That is really true! I've started maybe a thousand times and as you can guess I never finished my weight loss journey... I feel that now I'm ready but I know that only time will say.
But... healthy lifestyle actually IS EASY! You can find (too) many articles that are far away from truth (and I want to start series where I'd explain these myths) but in the end you'll find out that all you need to keep your lifestyle healthy is to use your common sense! 
So what should you do to live healthy? 

Our society is known for its sedentary lifestyle. Every hour spent sitting is wrong for your body: it makes your methabolism slower, it weakens your muscles, it doesn't really help your spine, and so on.
