Supporters beat consumers every time

Okay, this is a quote from Seth Godin not Blake Mycoskie, the Chief Shoe Giver at TOMS and author of the book “Start something that matters”, but it does sum up my feelings today and in general when we talk about branding and story telling. I must admit that when I started to read this…

Iamsterdam

Amsterdam – the city of freedom thas has been gained and lost at the same time. While I did not have any grand expectations of my trip there, I did indeed felt as if some part of me wished it was different. Cultural and mesmerising during the day, while packed and crowded by the night….

Are you moving in or what?

Hello, darlings! Found this in my pile of “stories that didn’t make the cut” and it was quite a trip down the emotion lane of how it was, when I just got my own place and how it is not. So I though I should share it with you, maybe somebody is freaking out about…

Evening darlings 

Haven’t posted for a while now. I guess when you work with texts and ads all day, there’s not much to put on the paper in the evening. All I want is to be quiet, to enjoy my time at the gym, listen to good music and cook something tasty. Go to sleep early and…

Short ride stories

I love to drive a car but there’s something magical about public transportation. Every morning I take the same bus unless I’m running late, which doesn’t happen often, but I have had my share of “can’t get out of the house today”moments. I know that every morning there will be a girl at the bus…

I like you

So here’s a tricky question. Would you ever say “I like you” to a person you feel close to if you wanted to make him or her feel special? I like ice cream. I like sunny days and movies. I like to listen to songs before I go to sleep. I like to see street…

Happy women’s day!

To all every woman out there – you’re amazing, don’t forget to sparkle!

40 Days of Great Fast starts tomorrow! 

For the last 4 years or so I have been feeling like my body needs a rebooting after the winter. So before Easter I fast for 40 days which is known in Western Christianity  as the Great Lent or Great Fast. During Lent many Christians commit to fasting or giving up certain luxuries as a…

How to have a fresh start?

Lately I consider myself a master of starting fresh, at the point zero.And I have developed a pretty good understanding of what is necessary to not loose it when you have to build everything from ground up. Recently I had to move from one side of the ocean to the other, leave my friends and…

Changing heartbeats

There’s a saying “All change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end”.
