About Me

When you are unhappy with your appearance, don’t be unkind to yourself. That’sΒ the fastest way to age. Be proactive. Take good care of your skin by giving it healthy, fresh fruits and vegetable. Keep it clean and neat. Remember to check your muscles for tension. If you find any, relax your face! Smile! You are beautiful!’ ~ Narine Nikogosian.

  3. Fish and chips are great. I had some the other day when I got back from the gym. I sort of wish I had waited another day because the chip shop was having a half-price day to celebrate their 10th year anniversary.

  4. Oh dear, the chippy must have been busy! I love fish and chips from time to time; we had a new chip shop opened just round the corner from our house so it’s always a temptation, especially because their fish is so deliciuos πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Kristina, Thank you for popping over to my blog and liking it. It is so nice to meet new people and their interests. I so agree with healthy eating. I was overweight for a long time then realised I only hurting myself so I set about a healthy lifestyle and now at 66years old I am fit and able. So much so I spent seven weeks in Turkey earlier this year backpacking around. I would never have been able to do that had I not taken on a better way of living. Thank you for your honesty and your beautiful recipes, ideas and tips. I will be visiting you often.
