I am a 37 year old child of communism / socialism. I grew up in the Balkans, but have been calling UK my home for nearly 15 years. I am a Biologist with a creative streak and a slightly dark sense of humour.
I love tea, or as some people here (UK) call it ‘herbal infusions’. It is the best universal cure for pretty much anything. I’ve been brewing an idea about writing a blog about beauty. Not just BEAUTY beauty, like skincare and cosmetics. But everyday beauty in life, that we often walk by or don’t stop to appreciate because we’re too busy or rushing somewhere. Some things that are ‘my cup of tea’.
Some people are naturally happy, cheerful and optimistic, but some people have to work hard to be like that. Some need a cuppa (cup of tea) and a time-out and be reminded about ordinary beauties. My Cup of Beauty blog is the place where I would like to share ordinary and less ordinary beauties, remind myself and any readers who pop in for a beauty cuppa that life can be more beautiful and fun and less ordinary than we often see it.
My ‘cups of beauty’ include (above all) laughing, learning, cooking, walking and hiking, taking photos, reading, cycling, listening to music and watching films; observing wildlife (including the ‘two-legged kind’).
So… pop in for a cuppa and feel free to comment, suggest, and express your opinions and constructive criticisms. I hope you enjoy it.
