About Stella Toulson

Hi, my name is Stella, I like reading books, travelling, visiting museums and getting lost, I like poetry and art in all their forms. I adore my home and I believe that it is a reflection of mine, of my ideas and emotions. In my free time I enjoy hiking, simply walking in the park or jogging in the mornings. I like the nature in its purest form and I love discovering it. I started writing in this blog because I wanted a diary – somewhere I can write everything I am keen on and I can talk about the things I want to keep in mind, and I believe that we all have a lot in common. Be humane! Have a nice time reading.

The All-Natural Cleaner we are desperately in love with

The All-Natural Cleaner we are desperately in love with

We like being able to choose. The shelves are full with products and the variety is great, so we go in the supermarket and stay there for too long, trying to find the best one. But are they good after all? Are they worth it? Aren’t they full of chemicals? Aren’t they bad for our health? What is more important our well-being or the well-being of our homes? So with so many doubts we end up going home either with too many detergents or with none. But the truth is that there is another simple solution – easy and effective – the all-natural cleaner, which we could make at home and which does miracles. Tested. Guaranteed.   More

But what you need for that time of the year, you may wonder. You need blankets and cushions at first place.

Things You Need To Do When Going For A Cruise Voyage

Things You Need To Do When Going For A Cruise Voyage

A Cruise trip or cruise voyage is primarily a trip on a Cruise Ship done specifically for pleasure purposes as an opposition to trips made on ocean liners for transportation purposes only. Cruises are done from a starting point, through a specified route and usually back to the starting point which clearly defines its purpose. For those that love the sea life, its quality of air and the beauty of water bodies, Cruise trips are great leisure options for you. Just like every other recreational service, the need for money comes in as a prime factor to determine whether or not a cruise voyage is for you. We’ll now discuss more on those things you might want to consider when planning a Cruise voyage.

Well, as stated earlier, you need to be fully aware of the options, promotions and prices of the cruise variants available out there. Popular cruise types involve Alaskan cruise, European river cruises, Mediterranean cruises. All these cruises offer virtually the same kind of service although with a couple of modifications to suit their customers’ taste. As you could be lucky to have a cruise service provider nearby, some other people prefer travelling to other continents and countries to get a glimpse of what it looks like, cruising in other geographical locations. Many of these people are from the US and want to have a taste of European river cruises and possibly Mediterranean cruises too. For them, a factor needed to be considered is the availability of European vacation packages.

Food, wine and la dolce vita

Food, wine and la dolce vita

Italy is simply a country. It is famous with its ancient history and many touristic sights, because, well, all roads lead to Rome. If you ask me about Italy, however, I won’t think of this aspect of it at all. And no, it doesn’t mean that I don’t like the Colosseo or the Fontana di Trevi, or the Leaning Tower of Piza, I adore them all. But Italy brings you so much more than photos with famous sights and tours on double-decker buses. Italy is not meant to be seen with a map in one hand and a camera in the other. More

All you need is a week in Halkidiki

All you need is a week in Halkidiki

You have now that job you have always dreamed about and you soon moved out from the place you’d lived since graduation, and now come home in the wonderful flat with three bedrooms and a sunny living room in the London’s center. You got promoted last year, you have e boyfriend who loves you, your family lives only half an hour drive away, you meet your friends often – you go out and have a drink, or you simply make a picnic at the weekend when you eat and laugh and share those precious moments. You have to be happy, don’t you? But in the reality only one little thing stands on the way to your flawless happiness – the fact that you are too tired. This lovely job exhausts you and the maintenance of this delightful house as well. And sometimes you want to sleep so desperately at the weekend that the only thing that convinces you to get up is the fear of losing your friends and all your social life. Last year you went on a trip to New York and the year before you visited India, you were amazed and impressed and inspired, but you came back home even more jaded. And now you definitely don’t want an 8-hour flight and the following jetlag, you don’t want the crowds, the queues and the noise. All you need is definitely a week in Halkidiki – the most magnificent Greek peninsula.   More

The simple bathroom cleaning in 4 steps

The simple bathroom cleaning in 4 steps

How gross is this room indeed? It stores grime and dirt and too many bacteria, it needs a regular clean-up and some special care, but the whole tidying is so annoying and unpleasant, that every time you think of it, you are either having a panic attack or going absolutely mad. But, hell, just do it! It is a simple clean-up, for God sake, you can cope with it. No matter if you will complete it in a week, planning a task for every day or you will find strengths and perform it in a single day, you just have to. Because how would you feel if you invite guests and they visit your awful bathroom with tiles with hard water stains on them and cobwebs in the corners or how would you feel if you fail your inspection after the end of tenancy cleaning because of this room only?

How would you feel if you invite guests and they visit your awful bathroom... Click To Tweet

It’s insane. Do not procrastinate. As simple as that.

Benefits of Gardening

When I was a little girl, I recollect an experience when a girl relocated into a broken house right down the road from mine. I keep in mind feeling bad for her considering that her residence looked unfortunate and also broken. She was certainly damaged and couldn’t manage anything even more then just what she had. Little did I know that this lady’s home would wind up being the most stunning property in town.

Benefits of Gardening2Each year the area outside her residence would blossom, not just that but she had blossoms popping up ALL YEAR LONG! Horticulture is what brought that little females house to life each and every single year. She was a gardening genius! Because I have actually been wed and moved right into my own little house I have actually assumed a great deal about that woman. More

The price of end of tenancy cleaning

The price of end of tenancy cleaning

When we have to use a service, we usually want to know how much it is going to cost us first and then what it will include. The same goes for end of tenancy cleaning, which is becoming more and more popular amongst the people who rent. The end of tenancy cleaning is very exhausting if you are thinking of doing it yourself. If the price is right for you, you might as well consider hiring a professional cleaning agency.

Landlords want their properties to be cleaned professionally

It has become the norm that the landlords want their properties to be cleaned professionally in order to return the security deposit back to the tenant. This is done with the sole purpose of having the property properly cleaned for the next tenants. More

How to get rid of the cobwebs?

How to get rid of the cobwebs?

If there is something worse than noticing a spider at home in your bedroom this is indeed noticing a whole cobweb right over your bed and imagining the hardly possible scenario of a spider walking on your face while you are sleeping happily and nicely in your cozy and comfy bed. These things are renewing, we have to admit, their removal is hard and sometimes too strenuous and their appearance – too soon and too unpleasant. The truth is that they are truly awful and not the best view ever, so when a guest stops by and meets a whole bunch of spiders in the bathroom, for instance, he will be shocked and he may even panic. And in addition their removal and non-existence is even part of the end of tenancy cleaning, which makes you hate them even more. Oh, how sad it would be, if you lose the money from your security deposit, because of a single stupid spider and its frightening cobweb. Please, don’t let this happen.  More

My favorite summer place at home: the balcony

My favorite summer place at home: the balcony

The summer is a season that matters, it is a sensation, it is freedom in the heart, wind in the hair, darker skin, less cares, beautiful sunshine, full moon and a lot of time spent outdoors. Summer is a season full of emotions that makes me want to stay out, to scream, to run, to climb, to sunbath. It is indeed my favorite season.

But I will save the joy in my heart for a little bit later and now let me take you back to the reality. And here nothing is that flawless.

You are going to work every day, your job is challenging, your lifestyle tense, it is blooming hot and you even hate the stupid sunlight that makes you anxious and unable to see a thing without sunglasses. And yeah, summer is a wonderful season to be away and an awful one to stay in the city.   More
