Paris behind the Eiffel Tower

Paris behind the Eiffel Tower1


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 travelled 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 behind the Eiffel Tower2Paris is its museums and galleries, its boulevards and shops, but there is something hidden behind all of these. There is something charming and enthralling that makes you want to come back and even never leave. Because no matter how impressive this same tower is, it’s nothing more than a …

Travelling with kids: the reality and some tips

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 any more. 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. Well, the little kids are always …

The mattress deep cleaning

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

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 in the property, you will have to say good-bye to the money from the security deposit instantly. And …

The dirtiest places in your home

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 2a.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, …

Keep your home organized and the move out cleaning will be effortless


The move out is said to be always time-consuming and tiring and for this reason, you are biased and you hate it before it has even started. The truth is that like everything else, it could be either an easy-peasy task or the nightmare of every living-being and it depends actually on the way you home is designed and arranged and mostly on the way it is maintained and organized. If you live in the mess itself, if you can never find a single object, book, cloth or whatever at home, if the dust is in such a great amount that you can hardly see the surface beneath, if the windows are so dirty that are opaque, then the end of tenancy cleaning would be annoying and hard for you and for the professionals as well (and oh God, you will need an expert help for sure).  …

Cleaning the living room perfectly in 3 simple steps


There are some things that the autumn surely comes with – the falling leaves, the coolness of the evenings, the calmness of the nature falling asleep and the desire to go home, to be safe, to stay there and to be at ease.

Your house turns out to be pretty important, you don’t want to go out, to spend the weekends in the windy and cold parks, you don’t want to wonder, you simply want to make a castle out of your living room and to stay there for good.

But how does this room actually look now, this room where cuddling you will watch movies and spend time with precious and loved people, this same room where you will read books, drink coffee and tea and wine, where you will chill and fill your heart with joys. Doesn’t this room deserve some special care now? I believe so.  …

something old

There is a lot of charm in a little something that belonged to person long ago, a person you didn’t know, who had a different fate from yours, who loved and hated and lived in a way that made him happy and gave him joy, or he ended up miserable and lonely. It is enthralling to have objects with history in your home that will make it more authentic and real as a whole. …

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 St. Peter, not because they are not worth it, hell no, they are majestic and impressive, but Rome is not only a city of sightseeing tours and buses with no roofs and people with cameras on the top of them, listening to a monotonous voice telling them some backstory of every building. Rome is experience. So when you want one, take your time, go there for as long as possible, for a week or a couple, for a month or a whole summer. Go there and relish the dolce far niente (the sweetness …
