Welcome to my blog! I have been meaning to write my blog for quite a while now but I’ve never had a courage to start. It can’t be that hard, right? I would like to write about everything and anything including jewelry of course. This is my first post so I figured no better way for me to introduce myself and share few facts about me with you. Please feel free to comment, like or dislike, share, connect and spread the word. I hope you enjoy it!
- I am 100% Polish, I was born and raised in Warsaw, Poland. I came to the U.S. when I was 25. English is my second language so you will see many grammar mistakes in this blog. I apologize for it in advance. I would love you to correct me! Please do! I would love to improve my English.
2. My real name is MALGORZATA which is Margaret in English. Gosia is my nickname. You pronounce Gosia something similar to Gosha with softer “sha” almost like when you say “GO SHOpping” (minus “pping” part). Nick names for Malgorzata are also; Malgorzatka, Goska, Gonia, Gosienka, Gosiunia, Malgosia, Malgoska, Malgonia, Malgos. I may be missing some but let’s stick with Gosia 🙂
3. I used to be a flight attendant and I loved it except for the runs in my pantyhose..
4. I am obsessed with tiny things. Anything miniature – send it my way!
5. My favorite and lucky number is 7. I was born in 77, I was 37 last year, my sister is 7 (plus 1) years younger than me. Number 7 follows me everywhere, I mean literally – my shoe size is 7 too!
6. I’ve always had love for jewelry. My first ever jewelry project was resizing one of my favorite sterling silver rings. I was 13 at that time and my ring was too big for me so I used nail polish to fix it. I kept painting layers of pink nail polish onto the inside of the ring. I even did some “engraving” of my initials “MN”. I think I used one of my dad’s point tools. It’s not perfect but hey, I was onto something right?
7. I ‘ve never tried a corn dog
8. I am not a fan of running but I love biking and walking, hiking in particular
9. I am a huge dog lover but there is something about goats and rabbits I can’t resist
10. I was a raw vegan for a week
11. I’ve never broken a bone or been a patient in hospital (I’m hoping I haven’t just jinxed it)
12. My favorite album of all is LEGEND by Bob Marley & the Wailers
13. I can do front split but only with my right leg
14. I’m slightly obsessed with nail polish. Ask me of any color you need. Yep! I got it! 🙂
15. I can drive a stick shift. Well, at least I hope I still remember… for the past 4 years I have been enjoying an automatic transmission
16. I learned how to ski when I was 5. I think I was better then than I am now… something to work on this winter 🙂
17. My last one is the tastiest; My absolute favorite food is SUSHI
17 a. I’m sorry, I’ve lied… there is more than 17 but I have to stick with the title of this blog post and with my lucky number 7 🙂 Ever since I discovered in 1994 VCR tape with Cindy Crawford’s workout I have been hooked on fitness. In 1999 I received my aerobic fitness instructor certification. I don’t think fitness trainer was my calling (hey! never say never!) but I do like working out. We all know the health benefits of regular exercising but working out also helps me get to know myself better. It teaches me about motivation, discipline, and perseverance which helps to succeed in other areas of life.
17 b. The last one, I promise! I LOVE music especially live concerts and I love to dance
