my posts are for You

Yello-Mello My Dream Reader,

I am writing to you if you are about to improve your life by changing bits by bit. Change is always good and leads us to a new destination / situation. Its refreshing and DOPE.

Anything is possible and everything depends on you perception. How you gonna stretch your reality and where do you draw the line for enough. Enough is ever enough?

Have you tried to analyze your environment from a different angle and realized that your limits are determined by your mindset? Have you tried to change your mindset and accomplish something wonderfully new? How did it feel?

This is my honesty platform and I tend to share bits and pieces of my way of improvement according to my perception, which is leading me to the wonderfully-new-land. Well, enough of being sentimental and lets get back to business. 😛

What I can promise for You is loads of pictures about foooooood (love good food), running paths, updates about training for the half marathon, team stories. And if you allow us we will share with you our favorite motivational quotes for those of you who is doing something similar to keep your mindset on the right path! Furthermore, regular posts about Matthias our Hero, who is having his own battle against brain tumor. Our main focus point is Matthias and his surgery. We are on the way to raise £80 000 for a life-saving operation with loads of other people. On this site you can familiarize yourself with all the possible ways of connection with Matthias and donating toward his operation. Like clicking on the logo on the right hand-side.

Thank you for your time and attention. Hope you enjoy the site and we would be happy to hear from you, what you go through and what you think about. There’s nothing better than building a community, safe environment where you can socialize. Keep us updated and we will keep you as well.

Sunny day in London & food shopping

I took an advantage of a lovely sunny day in London and headed out to enjoy the rays. On the way I popped in to Whole Foods store to pick up few yummy things. Can’t wait to tuck in. I picked up some salad with sweet potatoes because I just love them. And yes…. Me and Erika eat sweet potatoes so often that we might become one soon. Surprise surprise 😊.

Life in London can be very hectic and stressful, therefore I’m so grateful for such stores as whole foods, so even if you don’t have time to prepare your own meal, you still can pop in and get some healthy and btw very delicious options.

I am so excited to post soon some pictures from our training and all the fun stuff we do.

We run for Matthias. Support us 🙂

Replace your sweets intake for some fruits instead. Eat more veggies and you will see improvement in your skin, metabolism and reduce bloating.

Blogging journey

Ever since I can remember, I had a blog. As a child I was super lucky as my parents were IT people. I think I am from the generation who had no home PC yet – definitely from where I come from. We always had a few PC at home, I remember more PCs  than bedrooms… 🙂

Luckily I always preferred fresh air, I grow up on the streets, but once the sun went down I was in front of the computer. Also because my parents liked X files, which was too scary for me at that time 😀

First it was basic chat I could use, and I was awake until very late. Then I had a MySpace account, where I could upload all my photos. I remember I was really passionate photographer in my teenage, so all party photos were uploaded. Maybe for some dismay. I wish I could find those pics, I am sure they are somewhere on the web… so scary.

The major breakthrough came years and years after when I started to work in Italy after Uni… we were about to create a Blog platform for the Gold Club, where I used to work. It was all natural for me, how to use it and what to do with it. I actually had to make all improvements. I made all pictures, videos and entries. Unfortunately I left a year later and since then the site is dying. Do not misunderstand me, my life turned out to be much better, the unfortunately part is for the blog, as nobody else updates it as well it deserves it. Such a waste, as the audience is there, hungry for the information. Well, what can you do?

Anyway, since then I created a few blogs on different platforms, to test and play with them, until last months, when I finally find the cause I am happy to stay awake after every late shift to spread the word. WE RUN FOR MATTHIAS is like the masterpiece of all my practice. The bonus is that I don’t have to make it alone. I have a friend, Veronika who takes the ownership and makes this journey amazing. We both aim for more audience, likes and traffic. Our aim is to get to as many people as possible, who would be willing to contribute £1 to support us on our charity running in September. All the money comes in, goes directly to the Matthias’ charity account. Who could have a lifesaving operation.

Please spread the word, contribute if you can or just simply join us on this beautiful journey. 🙂
