So I am Russian. I will be getting British passport next year so I had to get a visa to go on holidays with family to Portugal this weekend.
It's proven to be very difficult. Hard to find the website, then it was all in Portuguese. So took me absolute forever but the appointment I could get was this Tuesday when we fly on Saturday.... I really didn't think I would be making this holidays....
However.... The lady who I had interview with was very helpful and I had my passport with new shiny visa just few hours later.
To be honest all the staff in Consilate General were very helpful. Even if you had to wait for a bit but everyone were leaving very happy.
And I also had an interesting day out. I had an protein juice thing from this place... As we know juicing is in right now.
Then I wondered around the shops. Couldn't really go very far.... So Antropologie fun, I just want to live in that shop. Or buy everything! So many wonderful things they have.
Then wondered in Carnaby street.
Check out these awesome light-bulb as decorations!
Mama also had some sushi from Itsu and Wasabi... Wonder why there isn't either of these in Cardiff. We have lots of burger places why not sushi chains too?
But the bus journey proved all too much for me, was so totally exhausted after....
But holidays here we come!!!

You might already know that I love the monthly subscription boxes. However I have cancelled my much loved Little Box. It was sad but had to be done, my drawers are full of stuff I don't have time to use. Or even energy. Being a Mombie (it's a real thing!) last thing I want to deal with make up and such.
But husband pointed out these little things make me happy so I though I give something else a go... And here we are
Fun idea, box of goodies for your little one depending on how old they are getting and such. It's nice. They also offer great introductory discounts, check out their Twitter and Facebook pages. But I think I found it is a bit strange like some one else picking up stuff for your preciouse little one and it is a bit too much money for my liking.
Don't get me wrong they send great stuff, but I needed up with more stacking cups... But grown up cup will be super useful and I always use the bowls from Munchkin. The cutlery set solved my future dilemma and Egg totally loves his new bath toys... And this fun guy
But the feeling of something arriving gone away after £30 monthly and that weird feeling of some one butting in your child's toy buying...
So i have been trying to cancel the account. And that's when I got really unhappy.
It took me few attempts to get b touch with some one, there was no option on the website. And then they have emailed me that we are still getting the next box due to their cancellation policy. I didn't even think twice about that since Birchbox and My Little Box were so easy to start and cancel. I guess I should have looked into that in more details. Silly me but I am not impressed. We were meant to get like a gadget box or a mainly box of some sort for a change.
Over all good idea but ... Strange and too much cash. Give it a try but beware of the cancellation policy.
