Stop hating your body

Today's canons of beauty are hard to follow. Lean&flawless body, fine ass, full lips, flawless skin, long legs, shiny blond hair, eyelashes as curtains - long&thick, white teeth, tanned body, nice tits, flat stomach, skinny nose .... and so on and so on. 
Every day media provide us with further doses of information on the latest trends in fashion ( what we should wear in order to be trendy and cool! ) and beauty ( what cream we should buy to stay  forever young!) Anti wrinkle cream for dry skin, anti wrinkle cream for oil skin, anti wrinkle cream for combination skin,  night cream, day cream, anti aging cream, youth perfect, cell renew, triple active, anti imperfection, dehydrated skin, oil skin, combination skin, smoothing cream, illuminating cream, pro dark spots cream....and so on! 
We are constantly under huge pressure to fit in to media/society high expectations but lets face it, nobody is perfect! Even that 20 year old model who is advertising the newest anti wrinkles cream. ;)
We very often forget about something greater than fashion trends or beauty products. I'm talking about our inner beauty!!! And about that is the book I've read lately.

  1. Cool stuff, and so true:) The focus on our looks goes to such extremes that it borders with obsession, if it's not obsession already. I didn't even know that there is so many "beauty" treatments. And it's money, money, money for the "cosmetics" industry. But does all of that make women (and more and more often men) to look better. I strongly don't think so. On the contrary, look at the fake looking faces covered with tones of, how it's called, foundation. Even women or girls with spotless skin use them which is a shame! Whats more attractive than woman's natural skin, even if it has some spots. For me the "painted" faces look like plastic dolls, the opposite of attractive! And what about hair? How damaged they are after the assault of all the dye chemicals. They look like some kind of old, (ab)used mop. You can even notice the damage in some more honest hair dye commercials. Brr!!! Any way, i call all the "plastic" stuff: NATURAL BEAUTY KILLERS. Oh yeah, that's what they are. Women, girls come back to your senses! You are so beautiful without all the crap;)

    1. Hey M! Welcome back and thank you so much for your extensive comment! :D I mostly agree about you said, but I'm not against cosmetics. My point was that, we are worrying too much about our look and care little about who we are inside.

Being a mom

Being a mom feels like that ;)
But seriously, how it is to be a mom?

Sometimes I hate it, and I sigh to how my life was before, and then things get easier and I kind of enjoy changing dirty nappies several times a day and sooth my baby for hours during the night....
Who am I kidding??!! My life is over! Big time! And probably I'll never have so much free time I used to have before.
But sometimes I try to imagine how my life would look like without Zoe and it seems so predictable, so BORING! With her I never can be sure if I'll survive till the next day without going crazy! ;) Life became so unpredictable, so dangerous with such a huge amount of caffeine in my veins and constant lack of proper sleep.
 Being a mom is a wonder.
I am like: "how the hell I can still function?"

Being a mom is a challenge.
I think I can't do any more , I'm exhausted and I want to jump out of the window or throw myself under a bus ,and then my baby pushes me even more, so I need to suck…

6 weeks postpartum - the real story

After leaving the hospital the third nipple ( hemorrhoid)  was my biggest concern, but then I saw it! And I had to google straight away "how vagina looks like" ,because I was puzzled.
I said puzzled? Sorry! I was terrified! And I haven't looked there for another two weeks!
Then I finally got the courage to check the situation again, but unfortunately nothing has changed! WTF! I've been doing Kegel exercise since the second day after birth!
 I got 3 stitches and I thought I will be pretty tight down there ,but it turns out that giant meteorite left giant destruction! Sex is out of the picture for a while!

Baby blues? Well...guess.
Hemorrhoids , gaping hole, marathon feeding, sore nipples, general exhaustion... You name it!
 I cried, I was tired, I was angry, frustrated, depressed, but then I sucked it up and repeated like a mantra : THIS IS MY FIRST AND LAST BABY!!!

And here I am, 6 weeks and 2 days after Zoe has been born, asking my husband if he would consider anot…

Breastfeeding sucks! Things that nobody will tell you until you experience it!

CLUSTER FEEDING
Our baby girl aka Milk Vampire is one month and one day old today , and her mama (me) turned into a walking vending machine!
After another 6 hours ( on and off ) marathon feeding I take a big breath and I sigh "thank God is finally over", when she suddenly opens her big eyes in which I see milk madness!  I can't imagine how there is anything left in my boobs for her to eat! But  I know, if I won't feed her in that very moment she will scream like a mad man! Or mad baby - to be more specific.
On a day like today I wish I could put her back into my womb!  It's emotionally and physically draining, and I'm asking myself why I'm still doing it?  Honestly I don't know.
She is natural. She can latch so easily and maybe that's what keep me going?  Our little cobra :) She will shake her little head right and left in a short distance from my breast just to attack her prey ( my nipple ) by surprise.
If you're curious how strong that baby …
