Merry Christmas!

  Christmas is considered to be a family day. Most people do their best to visit relatives and spend the Christmas Eve with their families. But what shall you do if you are single? What is the best way to spend Christmas if you are single? What if you have no intention to listen to your relatives talking you into finding “someone” who would brighten your life?  What is bad in lonely Christmas Eve? Why cannot a single person just stay at home and watch favorite movies, eat pizza, etc? Why do people consider that sort of holidays as a bad thing? Have no idea…

Sales are everywhere. These days you can buy lots of things you’ve been dreaming but could not afford it before thanks to high prices. Last Friday I spent a great sum of money thanks to sales. Of course, I bought lots of things, but I overspent. Sales have two sides. On the one hand they let you buy lots of things at lower price. But on the other hand, sales often provoke people to buy.
As for me, I tend to overspend during sales weeks. But the worst thing about this is that I often buy useless things at that time. I know, it is really bad. But I could not control myself: I start buying and spend and spend money till my pockets are empty. Yeah, shopaholism is a disease!

Learning Spanish

bestseller book clubs

I’ve decided to learn Spanish. I like the way it sounds. I adore Antonio Banderas. Have you seen Desperado?  Well, I was fascinated by Banderas play in the movie.
I think, Spanish is sweet-sounding and beautiful language. Why not to learn it? I bought a teach-yourself Spanish book, as I do not have time for language courses. Now, I do my best to learn some words a day. My friend advises me also to buy a book in Spanish. She says, it will also help me to learn the language. Hope, I will be able to speak Spanish soon and maybe, will spend my next vacation in Spain.

 My friend Jenna is fashion addicted. She is buying only trend brands and spend hours (I would say, even days) in stores. She is always in the know what is going on in the world of fashion. She always looks fashionable…

But I think, she lost her own style in the pursuit of trends. Yes, she has labels but she often looks like thousands of women who cannot live without fashion pages in ELLE, Cosmo, etc.  She is speaking only about fashion, labels, trends. There is nothing in her mind but fashion. I feel suppressed when we meet and she speaks about fashion for hours. It really makes me mad!



When you are young, it seems that you never have enough sleep. Even if you sleep for over 8 hours, you feel like you would lie in bed for several hours more. Sometimes, I feel like I would sleep for 24 hours. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to sleep for over 10 hours often. Even when I manage to get 12 hours sleep on a weekend,  I always feel sleepy in Monday morning.

They say elderly people need shorter sleep to feel brisk in the morning. I wonder how many years should past till I would feel brisk early in the morning. And what shall I do now? How to get my sleep out now?

Put in Order your Finances

fix credit report

The crisis brought lots of loses. No doubt, no one wants to lose. If you want to take control of your finances, start with your credit cards. Check your credit report. Do your best to raise your credit score if you want to enjoy low interest rates and not to overpay for your purchases.
Also, calculate how much you spend on credit cards. Check, whether you use all the credit cards you own. If there are some that you use rarely or do not use at all, cancel the accounts. Think, how much you will save! If you have to pay rather high interests on your plastic, try to shift your balance onto a card with lower rates. Pay attention to
fair credit cards. They often offer favorable terms, rewards, and reasonable fees.


A friend of mine, Patricia is going to undergo plastic surgery. She wants to have rhinoplasty. She is sure that her nose is awful. Well, I believe she needs no plastic. She is an attractive girl with a beautiful nose. I told her many times my thoughts about plastic surgery, but she is listening to nobody.

It really makes me mad, that I cannot persuade her to quit the idea. I’m sure, her rhinoplasty will be just a waste of money and time. The thing is her nose is quite normal and cute, and nobody sees any flaw in her nose except herself. Think, when she undergoes the plastic, nobody will see the difference between her “new” and “old” nose.
