About Me

Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach

George Bernard Shaw

Big hello to everyone!


My name is Elena and I am excited to have you on my website, which is, in essence, my personal blog. Originally having background in teaching English in my native country of Ukraine, I have experienced a change of careers a few times. Apart from teaching, I worked as an Interpreter/Translator, an Office Administrator, an Assistant to Account Manager in an IT Company and on a Help Desk in Customer Support. After moving to the USA, I decided to try a career in Sales. I had an absolutely amazing experience working in an Auto Dealership as a Sales Associate. At present, I am involved in couple projects of my own. One of them is my website.

Thinking over how to best describe myself, I will ask my horoscope to help me. Almost everything you read about Pisces can be applied to me: easy-going, intuitive, sympathetic, artistic, compassionate, understanding, impressionable. On the dark side: escapist, idealistic, secretive, lazy, impractical, melancholic. I like to think about all things in the world. I do not stop dreaming, mostly that one day this world will be a better place to live in, with no wars, sufferings and deprivations.

While dreaming, I continue living my regular life, taking care of my family and friends. I enjoy a good laugh in good company. I love the outdoors and watching animals. I continue trying new things, developing new hobbies and interests. I believe that CHANGE is an essential part of a human being. As it was once said: ‘Only fools and dead men don’t change their minds. Fools won’t and dead men can’t.’

Since I have tried different things and hobbies, I was often asked to share my opinions and experiences. For this website, I picked a few topics which may be of interest to you, too. They are shopping, cooking, fashion, traveling and meeting new people and attending various events. Sometimes, it is just a product/service review that I am excited about, because it worked for me and it may work for you, too. I might add some other topics if they start playing an important part in my Life. Whatever it will be, I invite you on this journey with me.

While I am not sure if I can call myself 100% professional in any particular field, I can definitely consider myself a solid amateur-expert in a little bit of everything:-) All the content on this website is written by me and most photos taken by me. Since I am not a native speaker, I ask you to be lenient with me. I hope you find something for yourself here. Welcome to my World!

Amateurexpertly yours,


Share and Enjoy
