This month was supposed to be all about studying. Oh, well. I guess it didn’t go exactly as planned. On the other hand, I decided to go visit again the children that I used to volunteer with, and it was awesome. They are growing up fast and beautiful, and I couldn’t be more proud. I also practiced yoga regularly, started exercising and worked more seriously on my blog – this is just the beginning: Get ready for a whole new and professional look!
What I’m Reading
I’m very slowly making my way through Elizabeth Gilbert’s “The Signature of All Things”. At every sentence I wonder at the ability of this writer. Not only the content is extremely interesting, but her writing just blows my mind. If I didn’t have concentration issues I would have finished that book in three days.
What I’m Watching
Beside watching all the Harry Potter movies with my sister all over again, I also found a couple of very nice movies recently. The most remarkable to me was “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”. It’s all you can look for in a movie, it’s funny, but deep and meaningful. I can’t wait to watch the sequel!
What I’m Eating
It’s not so easy to create new vegetarian dishes… Anyway, I’m eating plenty of bio-veggie-burgers (wheat, soy, eggplant…). One night I dined with my family at a meat-and-burger-based place in my town. I thought I would have to eat french fries and ketchup, instead they made me a huge burger with no meat – onions, cheddar, mayo, tomatoes, lattuce… Yummy!
What I’m Drinking
My mom and I made a 30-euro shopping for… tea! Green tea, white tea, chai black tea, ginger chai, sweet black chai… We just can’t get enough!
My uncle discovered a brand which makes bottled iced tea (bio). My favorite flavor is white tea with extract of lotus flower and goiaba… You know, with 40°C, sometimes it’s just too hot for hot tea.
What I’m Writing (on the Blog)
I have started a new series with link up! The series is called TreatYoSelf&Plan, I share a post every Thursday with a link up button. The objective is finding the time to treat ourselves a little each week and set some goals for the following week. This way, we will build better habits and support each other in the process!
I also concluded The Importance Of Awareness series on PsychoTuesdays, and started hosting guest posts. If you have some experience with mental disorders that you want to share, I will be glad to publish it on my blog!
What I’m Listening to
My latino fever is back. Bachata is giving rhythm to my housework and tidying-up sessions. Since none of my friends in town shares this passion with me, I’ll share it with you!
What I’m Instagramming
Mainly, in June I posted pictures of my meals, ice-creams and relaxing moments! Sharing my little treats with my readers has been awesome! Incense, essential oils, tea, food… show me how you treat yoself!

What I’ve been up to
I tried to study with little success. I tried again, with little success. I’ll try again tomorrow. I met the children I used to volunteer with, who looked very happy to see me again, and my heart filled with joy. I bought so much tea. I watched a little show put up by my 14-year-old cousin who played the guitar for the whole family.
The children’s hugs after such a long time
My Grandma’s great news – I still can’t share it, it’s a secret between her and me, but I’m so happy for her!
Of course, yoga!
