Hello people, well this is very exciting, I am writing the one before last one post of my challenge! Gosh, who would have thought I will get to end. I certainly did not think so. Tomorrow I will be writing special PF 2014 post to sum up my year including the challenge, so this is my last opportunity really to sum up my day. As you know I got ill again, so I spent the day in bed. However I did try my best. Carrie in Sex and The City film says to Samantha  and Miranda after them getting her flat back to her just by using the phone and wi-fi during the “honeymoon” holidays in Mexico: “God, You two can rule the world!” Well I felt exactly like that. Messaging, texting, calling, social networking from comfort of my bed whilst eating a beautiful plate of cheese and biscuits and drinking countless cups of tea with honey and lemon. Simply joy!

 

I have been spreading the link to my challenge to pretty much every website I could, contacting my friends, who kind of thought about it in the past or planning to join me vaguely confirming and helping to make few people think differently about how to approach the resolutions with fun and not as I must. There is one thing I was wondering about, I have currently a friend, who lives in Belgium and he is learning Dutch. I have been trying show him ways of learning the language in more fun way. Is there anyone, who has great tips for that or fancies meeting up with him? He is a very street wise guy, loves to travel and is very funny. I told him perhaps starting a blog or something, where he can learn new word a day. There is a very useful page on Facebook, where you can learn useful “street” words in English/ Czech about three times a week, so I wondered perhaps if there is anything similar for Dutch. Any suggestions for websites, films, anything what comes to your mind, are welcome

 

What made me really happy today, my new student (you know that talented chef I have been telling you about) managed get through an interview and is invited for a trial period this week as kitchen porter. I am so happy for him. I hope he gets it! I have no doubt about him feeling like a fish in a water as soon as he is back in the kitchen environment!

 

So that is it, I cannot think of any other update, apart from feel free to share my link to the new challenge and I will see you tomorrow! Love Kat xx

Day 26: Welcome to the Maison Bentley Style Blog Party! 66 days to go!

Kat doodles about life:

Dear readers, since you are here most likely joining in with the Maison Bentley Style Blog Party, I would like to all welcome You dearly. The blog is called My journey on becoming full-time designer and it is exactly what it says on the tin! I have been blogging on and off for about two years (with rather more gaps than blog posts)and it has been only recently- probably in the last six moths- when I really got into it. And ever since being fed up of my life with four jobs and not much income, on 1st October I started a challenge to put my creative degree into full-time use and I am on fire ever since. Sometimes you just need that kick or slap or even both and that is exactly what happened to me, when I could not get the job I wanted purely because of not knowing how to drive. So ever since day 1, I have done my best to be productive, and then having to write about it in order to get that job (so if you have one for me, feel free to get in touch..:-). Obviously since this is daily challenge not every day my creative juices flow as well as during the others, but I hope this gives you some kind of idea and perhaps a kick to yourself about wanting to change your life and do something you always wanted. So feel free to join me in with the challenge whatever that dreams of yours is- giving up smoking, saving for a car or simply mastering your language skills or if you know any graduate, who does not know what to do with themselves finding the feet within the job market, send them to me!

Now since we are partying and celebrating new chapter in Maison Bentley Style Blog, I thought I show you some of my classic oldies, how I party in Czech style. Long gone are the days of dreadlocks,  too much drinking and nonstop party! My perfect night now is staying in with cup of tea, watching Xfactor, if I wouldn’t have to go to work on Friday and Saturday to work. Because to be honest when I finish at 3am, there is not enough time to get to the point of party spirit, where everyone is already by then. And after two glasses of wine I usually have enough… oh something tells me I getting old 🙂

Enjoy my blog and enjoy the party, Thanks for reading. Love Kat xx

So when it comes to Kat and a party…..

… there is always food involved …

Day 24: Things, which save the day for me! 68 days to go!

Kat doodle about life:

So- I have been busy with work yesterday and then I went out ( you could call it networking), so I apologize for the late post. Since falling off the bike, my body is suffering increasingly from lot more pain, so I thought I will share some of my personal tips for times, when your day is not exactly going the way you imagine.

DISCLAIMER: I am not taking any responsilibity of shown examples in case something goes wrong. I use these examples and they work for me, but obviously your health or situation may not be quite right for them to be used. “Just sayin’.”

Duck tape, double sided tape, super glue, superglue activator– many times I found myself in situation, when you need to quickly tape something or fix it. Duck tap is pretty much always the “saviour”. If you are using superglue and cannot keep holding little pieces until they stick for example when using thick one (especially in modelmaking), spray it with activator, the superglue freezes within seconds.

day 24 p2

Padlock– apart from the obvious locking your toolboxex, I did use it on my painting dungarees (plus I also used duck tape), when I lost the button. Or in case there is no sewing kit available. Not the most glamourous, but it will do, what you need it to do in emergency.

day 24 p3

Aloe Vera Gel (transparent)– I have been swearing on this product for a while. It is not this exact one as the picture, because I accidently bought lotion this time instead of gel. I use the gel for any cuts, burns, pimples, moisturize the skin. It works on everything and it soaks in within literally seconds unlike creams to make skin smooth and soft and heal fast.

day 24 p5

Food– any food really saves my day. On a hangover morning I really enjoy grilled English breakfast, bacon and mushroom sandwich or chicken sandwich. Smoothies are also great solution.

day 24 p7

Solulable paracetamol– Dissolve it in glass of water and it works instantly within half an hour rather than taking tablets. And it doesn’t have that horrible taste such as.

day 24p4

Deep Heat Rub– If I do too much exercise/Russian dancing, gardening or just like now I am in pain from falling off, I use this. It stinks up the bedroom, but it does work, or helps it to calm it down.

day 24p6

Water and cup of tea– I guess not much to say about that one.  I cannot leave the house or come home without one. I have a water bottle on the go when cycling constanly as I am always thirsty. If you want to see how hydrated you are and which products to use get keep your skin hydrated, well known British drugstore starting with B has machines in stores for you to be tested. When I had that test done, the lady had to do it twice just to make sure my result is correct. I had hundred percent hydrated, which only happened once before when testing someone else in that entire time she worked on this project. Asking how do I do  that, I just simply answered I barely use any cream, I don’t smoke and I drink water constantly.  So here is the secret.

What are your ways how to make the day better or your solutions in emergency situations? Please share with us in comments.

Back soon, whenever I return from working marathon. Kat xx
