Bullet journal for bloggers. What works for me, and what doesn’t?

06 September, 2021
“A BuJo Junkie” is a term to describe a person obsessed with bullet journaling. I am NOT that person. A bullet journal is not my obsession, but it definitely is my hobby. I don’t try to force everything inside a bullet journal – I treat it more like a tool to achieve my ideal planning […]

It’s calm, sophisticated, walkable (!!), NOT located a million miles away from my house (sorry, Lusail Marina!), and bursting at the seams with hip eateries […]

Time management for moms: how to get the most out of your day.

21 February, 2020
Time management for moms is a topic really close to my heart. As a Type-A organizing freak, over the years I’ve developed a borderline unhealthy obsession with productivity, being organized, and doing everything in a structured way. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve attended courses, learned by experience, and thought myself more or less an expert. AND THEN I […]

5 truths about raising an expat child.

“Where are you from?” – I asked Adam once, quite curious about what will he say. He was 3 years old at the time. “Germany!” – he answered, without any hesitation. Wait, what!? I was expecting “Poland”, maybe “Tunisia”, but why on earth would he associate himself with a country he has no links to? […]

A lot of people who I talked to in Qatar seem to have one thing in common: after a couple of years in the Middle East, somewhere between long working hours and questionable lifestyle habits, they managed to gain an impressive amount of weight. Myself included. One of my colleagues (+8 kg in 5 years) […]
