Popping-in at Marina Hoermanseder’s show during Berlin Fashion week

So I went to Berlin to see Marina Hermanseder show as part of our new and exciting collaboration between Sanrio and Marina for co-branded Hello Kitty line. The weather was wonderful:sun was shining and the Swarovski  embroidered crystals was sparkling especial bright giving a magic touch to the models outfits.

The line was colorful and fun with nice touch of Marina’s signature belts, bows and butterflies. Wonderful Louboutin sandals and heels gave extra glamour and summer chic to the collection. Needless to say that would love to have them all in my closet too. Both-outfits and shoes.
Here is my favorite picture from the show – with happy and smiley Marina herself after the show.

Portugal is famous for her sea dishes, especially for sardines, and what could be a better lunch option than having a fresh fish dish at the seaside right after an crazy morning between plane catching, check-in struggles and car renting misunderstandings? For us finding this small , local all-you-can-eat restaurant with fixed sardine menu was the highlight of the day and actually – of all trip as the best local food experience.

Our lunch stop was at – Mar a Vista. This place I came across as best local place recommendations in Trip Advisor. Which actually provided pretty accurate visitor description of the place and the order of the day: ” They bring you grilled sardines, potatoes and salad, then they bring you more sardines, some more potatoes and salad, and than some more sardines and some more sardines, and when you feel like you cannot eat anymore they bring you more sardines…till you stay stop!” ( From our experience – stop was not enough! we had to say “Stop” for 3 times together with “basta,basta!”  and some hand gestures to stop bringing as we had already plenty. But boy, I tell you – those were one delicious sardines!  Read More

” Surfing is a physically demanding sport. You need to be strong, flexible and have excellent endurance. The fitter you are, the longer you’ll be able to surf for. The faster you can paddle, the more waves you’ll get”. This quote by Surfingsite truly sums up the necessity of being in a good physical shape to try out your first surfing experience.

And I can definitely second this statement for being in a pretty good physical shape myself, but still here are some of my suggestions what helped me to get the best out of my first surfing lesson in Portugal last week. Read More

Signing up for an adventure is easier to say than actually do it. Especially when you are burying yourself in works, studies, and just every day routine and when the weekend comes you just want to stay in and sleep.

To become better than the person you were yesterday you should constantly learn, practice and improve. The same is for the workout – in order to get better results you should constantly improve your technique, increase weight and practice. To keep things interesting you should always switch between routines and incorporate some new exercises and challenges in your workout plan.

This is practice that I have been always following to keep things interested and body constantly wondering in order to improve. The things I like to do is to throw to myself a challenge –  like trying out some new workout routine by some trainer, like Victoria’s Secret Angel trainer Dan.
This time I tried out Nike Master trainer’s Sonja Moses workout routine and I must say it was not as easy as I was imagining it. Definitely felt the burn next day and sour muscles ( especially butt) so it means just one thing / definitely working! So try it out for yourself if don’t believe me!

..and just like that, another month has passed! and we can proudly say: ” Hello….

We want it or not the time flies, especially when you have many things to do. And this April has definitely one busy-bee month! 

First of all, I can say that been pretty good with diet sticking and working out regular, no traveling and eating clean and already seeing and feeling results! Clothes getting looser and seeing better body definition! Yeah, baby, yeah! 

Austin powers K dance

yeah, baby, yeah!

So this month is getting worse and worse on the busy-factor, because, well..emmm because this lady is getting married in 3 months! YES no joking! it’s happening, so no time to lose and especially when such decisions are taken last minute..

So can only imagine how many things to settle ( specially if you organize wedding from a distance) and more over now it is time to really get that fat crying because the ultimate prize is THE dress – the wedding dress to look absolute (my) best in it!

Getting in the Shape for a cause

..this is how I felt before my first swimming lesson!

Must say was soooo anxious and worried and definitely felt liek a fish out of the water. Especially as my mind was believing that I am too old for doing this and should have done it as a kid and my time has passed now. However my trainer was pretty cool and got me over this false concept pretty fast, so I am ready to take over the seas, go snorkeling in deep waters (which was afraid before and missed my occasion in Thailand).

..did miss this opportunity in Thailand as was too afraid and not confident at all about my swimming skills. ( Mostly did not want to be left behind to a sea creatures for lunch). 

But now I am facing my fears and learning to swim like I should to not miss this kind of occasion again!  So this May planning to get even better at this to take over the sea this summer!

Another thing planned this may is travels to organize everything for wedding: dress, location, catering, wedding planner and everything related. Wedding is in Latvia, but the outfits are chosen in Italy so Florence – here I come (this weekend!)

..and than of course creation, sending, saving, collecting, pinning and “hearting” Wedding moodboards on Pinterest and We Heart It is so on!

Let’s admit – it’s quite fun spending lunch breaks, and morning in public transport by checking out ideas, crafts and inspirations to pull together your own idea of your dream wedding.

To sum up – this month is going to be flying by, so let’s try to look to things with a cool head and from a different perspective and try to make the best out of it: with loosing fat and not the head! ( could be a slogan for a t-shirt! hihi )

What’s your May goals?

Sometimes we just cannot take it anymore the regular diet with it’s chicken/turkey,  salads and veggies and we need to freshen-up our everyday dish. My way to make the boring turkey/chicken to taste different is to make a meatballs. Which is fast, easy and delicious. as every time I am experimenting with different proportions and extras than I do not really follow a certain recipe, so just mixing up ingredients and go by intuition. 

So here come my yesterday’s meatball recipe. Remember this is a fit blog and a fit version of a meatballs so no frying required, just oven -to keep it light.
