How I chose best Gardner in Ljubljana, Pro Horto Strgar

  A year ago, my family moved into our new house with a big garden.I never thought that gardening is my thing, but I decided that I will try my best to learn more about trees,bushes, flowers and planting. For start I had planted a very clear idea of how I want our garden to look like. Since I am romantic and love fresh flowers, I imagined my garden to be as fairy-tale as it is possible next to the pool (which was my husband wish), and at the same time functional for I knew I didn’t have time to be too busy with it. But looking for a right gardener was not romantic at all. When we first tried to hire a gardener, me and my husband got into a big fight, because potential gardener that we interviewed, was only listening to my husband wishes. And that was that garden needs to be as clear a...

Flirting with anti ageing procedures

  My first visit to plastic surgeon happened eleven years ago when I was living in Charlotte. I was sent there by my family doctor for removal of few moles and he suggested that it shall be done by plastic surgeon for minimal scars and best outcome. Since then I have been back and forth about thinking of the pros and cons of plastic surgery and if or when to start with non invasive minimal procedures. With explosion of the products and media pressure to look beautiful by standards that are changing from season to season , the question is what shall be used for one to feel good or the way they want and not to over do it. Since my first visit to plastic surgery I have done chemical peels, but never tried botox. I never considered it, because I am too scared of needles, all side effects ...

Benefits of Physical Therapy

  In one of my previous posts I was writing about all the advantages that come whit regular exercise, but I didn’t mention that once you start exercising and discovering your body all over again, you can encounter some uploaded physical pain. This fall I organised group of Friends for a cross training class, because I wanted to add more diversity into my workout routine that consisted mostly of pilates.After few workout sessions, one of my friends got back pain problems, that were not just physical pain, but also all the emotional pain and upload she was uploading for past two years and maybe even longer. She needed to stop herself for few weeks and get into physical therapy to restart her body as well as her emotions and position herself all over again. And as we were debating over t...

Miotto, best kept secret in furniture industry

  I have to admit that I visited Miotto show room with my architect when I was renovating one of my apartments, but it never occurred to me that Miotto is a furniture brand developed and founded in Slovenia. It is collaboration of a Slovenian co-founder Vasja Srebrnic and Harvey Norman (Australian furniture retailer). Since it has such an international name, I assumed it is an Italian brand. Until few days ago when I met with Miotto co-founder and co-owner and he told me story about as they call it “best kept secret in furniture business”. Miotto embodies all current trends in interior design and offers complete living concept. What I really liked it that furniture design doesn’t compromise in texture, that are rich and sophisticated and of highest quality but at completely affordable...

Good things happen when you exercise, Sunny Studio

Even though I was moving with my husband, what I remember most while relocating, is feeling anxious how will I accommodate to new environment and meet new people. I knew I will have to form new friendships, if I didn’t want to spend my days without friends and support group. I didn’t want to stay home all day and wait for my husband to come home from his work. So when you are moving to a new country or new town, after settling in, it is beneficial to subscribe yourself to local gym, yoga or pilates class, because that way you can meet new people, that are not involved in your workplace or your husband workplace. Not only will you meet people, you will get into regular exercise routine with benefits of social life, support group and stress relief. Not to mention being guilt-free for eating ...

Living in Slovenia

Let me tell you why after all these years living abroad, my family decided to come back to Slovenia and why I want to raise my daughters where I grew up. Even though it was such a blessing to live and study in the USA, travel throughout Russia, most of the Europe and living a year in a Rome, I found that little pleasures are the ones that will make us be best versions of ourselves. As my father often said to me, “it is the people and good times that will make you feel the city and not buildings”. After extensive thinking and trying to count my blessings, I found that opening sink and pouring clear water in my glass while living in city centre and overlooking green trees out of my window is one of the biggest blessings. Did you know that Slovenia is first state in the European Union that ha...

What you need, BetterLifestyle team gets it done

I stopped counting how many times I moved, after my ninth moving. To make my life easier, I started looking at movings as a way of jet-setting. It is all in how we perceive things and see it. The glass can be half empty or half full. I decided long time ago, I will live easier if I pour champagne in my glass. So movings can get easier if you decide so. And I would say that first and most important thing is to learn that it is ok if you ask for help. Hire help if you can and let the professionals do the work for you. Educate yourself before going to a new place about local options regarding best schools, best neighbourhood to live in, health care option, banking option and afterwards you will want to know best places to dine, entertain kids, work out and free time options. If you are reloca...
