Paris behind the Eiffel Tower

The city of lights, the home of romance, the capital of France and a place with too many labels, Paris. There are crowds there, many crowds and many people, and no matter why you are visiting this city, this is the first thing you will realize. Tourists who come here to feel the magnificent spirit of the city, immigrants who are seeking happiness, those who have traveled so much to come here and simply fall in love, people with different fates and people with different stories.

Paris is indeed its sights – the Louvre, the Montmartre, the Eiffel Tower.

Paris is its museums and galleries, its boulevards and shops, but there is something hidden behind all of these.


Travelling with kids: the reality and some tips

Your little 3-year old girl is the cutest one in the world. She is not one of the always-want-something kids, she is not crying so much (lately) and you notice some little things that show you how quickly she is growing up – she is not a little baby anymore. And you have always dreamed about a trip to Paris, or Barcelona or New York, and you tell yourself that she is old enough. For God sake, even for a second, you do not think about leaving without your little one. Ok, you are all done, obviously, you are more than brave, as well, or just too delude: the time will show. After packing for hours, taking at least two suitcases for a long weekend in Paris, you are about to go to the airport. For now, everyone is calm, threateningly calm maybe.


The mattress deep cleaning

The bedroom is not a simple room – it’s a heavenly place, where you could share moments, emotions, sensations with your beloved one, where you could cuddle and simply relax talking about the next day’s schedule or the travelling in the space, here you can read a book and escape the reality or you can light some candles and be at ease, forgetting the everydayness. And this place has its heart – the magical bed. Choosing a bed is like choosing a house because it should be comfortable and beautiful and it has to fit the interior design and it should be on a reasonable price and so on. But once you have it, do you really take care of it? Most probably no.

But you should, because the main part of the bed – the mattress, seriously needs a regular clean-up.


Fresh air, clean home, happy people

Let’s talk about… cleaning routines. What are you doing on a regular basis: vacuum-cleaning and dust removal? Are you washing the windows, are you arranging the closet? Are you moving the furniture so that you can clean behind them? Are you cleaning the bathtub? Or the coffee-maker? Or the carpet? We are so different that we definitely have different cleaning routines as well. But there are some basics – yeah, you cannot convince yourself that you are maintaining your home well if for instance, the air in your house is not that fresh? In fact, have you ever thought about the air? Seriously? This is not a regular task, it is even not on the end of tenancy cleaning checklist, though if the landlord arrives and notices that you have been smoking the property, you will have to say goodbye to the money from the security deposit instantly. And now as we are aware of the whole fresh air situation, the real question is what can we do?


The dirtiest places in your home

I have always thought that I am a fastidious person, who tries to keep everything perfectly clean at home, every room, every spot, every corner and every surface. I am that lady who always walks after the children reminding them not to touch the walls, not to go with muddy shoes on the beautifully white carpet. Yes, I am the same lady who can spend a nice relaxing day, shopping, reading a book and chilling, and then I can also clean the bathroom till 2 a.m. I am the one, who cleans the ceramic hobs right after I have made the pancakes on an easy Sunday morning and I am the same lady who cleans the coffee maker every week. And yes my home looks better than the average one. But lately, I understood that I was totally deluded. After I decided to hire SYK professional cleaners for a spring cleaning, as many experts tell that regular deep professional cleaning is what every home needs, I was amazed. And I won’t talk about the brilliant service, which I expected, but about some little details. They arrived fully equipped and ready to perform THE cleaning and if I have to be honest, I have never ever cleaned in my entire life some of the places they took care of.

All roads lead to Rome

or “Tutte le strade portano a Roma” “You may have the universe, if I may have Italy” said Giuseppe Verdi too long ago. And Rome is the emanation of Italy. Rome is perfection. And I do not want to talk about the Colosseo and the Fontana di Trevi, about the Spanish steps and the basilica […]
