Well, I don’t know about you, but personally I always panic when one of my male friends/relatives celebrates a special occasion and I need to get him a gift. If it is a gift for a female friend, you can never go wrong with high quality cosmetics/skin care products, or pretty and feminine accessories -at least, in most of the cases. But if it is for a guy? All I can think of is the case of my cousin: I used to get him an aftershave, for every special occasion, for many, many years. Name day. Birthday. Christmas. Easter. Successful examination. And many other times. No kidding, one day I visited him and I discovered a shelf full of aftershaves. It seems that I was not the only one who was going for the easy solution and was getting this particular gift for him. It was so embarrassing, I never bought an aftershave for anyone, after that!
So, over the years, I have made a small list of gift ideas for guys. Of course, not everyone is the same and not everyone is going to like everything out of this list. However, you can get some ideas and judge by yourselves if they match the particular person you have in mind.
And one last thing: you can adjust most of these ideas, according to your own budget. A gift doesn’t have to be expensive. Just the thought of it has a great value and it is something that must be greatly appreciated, no matter how much it costs. Thoughts and feelings are much more important than objects. 🙂
Let us start!

Smell good, feel good.
Today, I want to share with you my new discovery: the Cosmetic Kitchen, an Austrian brand with 100% vegan products. I stumbled across their line in DM and I was initially attracted by their simple, cute packaging. But little did I know -when I discovered their “do it yourself” spirit, I instantly fell in love with it and my first thought was to share it with all of you.

Today, I have some exciting news! My secret project is now revealed: Luna & Bernard. My own online comic is out.
I have been wanting to make my own comic since a long time ago, but I have been postponing it. I like drawing, but I am not that good at it, so I never felt comfortable enough to share my art. I have been thinking “someday, when I get better at it, perhaps…”.

Are you ready for a magical adventure?
Today, I have an exciting new post for all of you who live around Bratislava! And for the rest of you, this can serve as an inspiration to do something similar in your area. 😉
So today, I will tell you about our latest trekking adventure. This time, we went to Železná studnička, an amazingly beautiful part of the Bratislava Forest Park. Yes, you might remember the Forest Park from my previous post
. Actually, as you will follow our steps, wandering around, breathing fresh air and enjoying Nature, you will then take a hidden chairlift and magically transfer…. to the spot we’ve been on my previous post! (Ok: the chairlift is not hidden at all. And the transfer is not magical. But don’t spoil it for me with your realism, please.)

Pizza. Pizza. Pizza.
This week I’m going to share with you the easiest homemade pizza recipe. It’s so simple, there is no excuse not to try it out. The best part is that you can control all the ingredients you are putting in -this means that you can make the pizza just like you want it to be, and you can also adjust it to the particular diet you follow (gluten-free, for instance).
I know you are hungry, so I won’t say anything else. Let’s get started with the recipe!
