a soap and a bag

label: still here — CV @ 12:03 AM

I found this wonderful website with information about all kind of ingredients in cosmetics a while ago. Today, as I was taking a new piece of soap to sauna, I had the box in my hand and decided to check the ingredients list. I have been using Roger&Gallet soaps for years. I adore them. My sensitive skin adores them. I was really scared to check the ingredients, but the result was more than surprising to me. There was only 1 ingredient in the end of the list that was red, while most of the things were double green. Whoa! I like surprises like that. I am comfortable to recommend Roger&Gallet to anyone now. For years I used Sandalwood line, but they discontinued it. Now I am looking for a new favourite. Bois d’Orange was not for my taste. Today I opened Fleur d’Osmanthus and it smells wonderful.

It is nice to know, that my body does talk to me. I have never liked pharmacy lines like SebaMed or others so much even when they are considered good and harmless. They do not feel good. I checked their ingredients too – red, red, red. No wonder my skin does not like them. I have always had a feeling for products that are “wrong”.

On the other hand I also have a disappointment. I used to like Moleskine. Until I bought the myCloud Reporter Bag this spring. It broke in 2 months. I did send them a message, but there was no reply. I think I am going to switch brands and try my luck with Leuchtturm1917 next. I do not like things that cost like they are quality products, but do not last as such. Even more I do not like being ignored.

another morning

I woke up at 7:30AM because the birds outside were giving such an alarm that it was impossible to sleep. Summer!

my blog is back

label: still here — CV @ 11:50 AM

This time it took time to get my blog back. Also I have some “restoration” to do and I am so sorry that all my private posts are gone. I lost a lot of diary posts that I wrote to myself and now they do not exist. This makes me sad. Not everything you send out to internet is there forever to stay.

another realization

I don’t think I am a workaholic. Office is just the only safe and stable haven I have had throughout the years.

Child’s life can be very frustrating. Imagine …

She sees something really interesting across the room. With a mighty effort she crawls all the way across the room. She reaches out for that cord/book/whatever and her fingers almost touch it and … and then her mother lifts her up and puts her back exactly where she started. Damn!

Seems like it was a breaking point for her too. She has been eating without any fights since that evening 2 nights ago. Double amounts! Seriously, I made porridge tonight and then I made more and she ate it all. She ate the whole can of puree today in 2 mealtimes! Whoa. Usually it took 3-5 meals and I still threw 3/4 away.

I truly hope this isn’t one some few days phase.

I hit the wall today. I totally lost my temper while trying to get her to eat her evening porridge. I’ve been fighting almost every mealtime for her to eat since she turned 2 months. Today I couldn’t cope any more. It is so frustrating! I can’t understand. Why she wouldn’t eat?

She learned to send air kisses. Smack!

Is this the bottom? Lowest of the low? Definitely feels like it, but I know that it can always get worse. Probably it will. FML.
