Sorry for being MIA last week.
I didn't manage to write a blog post over the weekend because I was busy on the day that I usually do it and it seems that if I don't follow my routine, everything just falls apart ;) Do you also need some kind of a routine to follow so that you stay on top of things?
The following subject was supposed to be featured in the previous entry but I got too carried away with my uncool blazer obsession story and decided to wait till next time to post it. (Squeezing everything in would have made the post superlong).
babble – paplanina (saying something in a quick, confused, excited or silly way)
MIA – nieobecna (missing in action)
to follow a routine – postępować zgodnie z wcześniejszymi przyzwyczajeniami (to do what you always do)
to fall apart – rozpadać się
be/ stay on top of something – mieć pod kontrolą (to be able to control a situation or deal with it)
to be featured – znajdować się, zostać załączonym, uwzględnionym (to be included)
an entry – wpis
to get carried away – dać się ponieść emocjom (to become so excited about something that you do not control what you say or do)
to squeeze something in – wcisnąć
Today's another instalment of me messing around with the Google search engine. This time round, I got excited about the go-to expression, which is used when you refer to items (or abstract ideas) that you reach for
- as your first choice;
- automatically/ without thinking;
- when you are pressed for time and have no other option but your trusty solution.
an instalment – partia, odcinek (part, episode)
to mess around with – dłubać w czymś, grzebać w czymś (spend time doing various things that are not important, without any particular purpose or plan)
to refer to – wspominać (to talk about)
to reach for – sięgać po
I am pressed for time – brakuje mi czasu (I have little time)
trusty – wypróbowany (able to be trusted, especially because of having been owned and used for a long time)
My go-to dress is probably my little black dress (LBD). It's simple, classic and always goes with any colour of shoes and a lipstick.
LBD – mała czarna
My go-to lie is, “Oh I already promised Chris that I'd hang out with him. Maybe we can meet up later in the night though.”
to hang out – to spend time with
When my hair is acting up or I simply don't want to be bothered with it, my 'go to' hairstyle is a braid pulled to one side hanging over my shoulder.
to act up – tu. nie chcą się układać (to behave badly)
be bothered with something – kłopotać się czymś, zajmować się czymś (to worry about something, take a special care of something)
a braid – warkocz
|BRAID PULLED TO THE SIDE|
My go to excuse is explosive diarrhoea. I usually add a few details like I have been on the toilet all day.
diarrhoea – biegunka
My go to cologne is Polo Black. I like to use an unscented deodorant with it.
unscented – bezzapachowy
Here is my go to pick-up line. It's not one of those cheesy ones that will get you slapped. I have used it at least 10 times and it worked every single time: Hello, my friend over there said that I couldn't start a conversation with the most beautiful girl in the room. Can you help me out?
cheesy – tandetny, oklepany
at least – przynajmniej
every single time – za każdym razem
that will get you slapped – spowoduje, że zostaniesz spoliczkowany
|SOME SLAPPING ACTION|
A: You look grumpy. What's up?
B: It's my go-to face.
grumpy – naburmuszony (easily annoyed and complaining)
I'm continuing this Healthy Eats series by showing you my go-to breakfast: a delicious, filling and healthy combination of yoghurt, cereal and berries.
healthy eats – zdrowe posiłki
filling – sycący (If food is filling, you feel full after you have eaten only a little of it)
My go to workout song is Fighter by Christina Aguilera. It's been on my list for over 5 years now and it STILL pumps me up!
a workout song – piosenka przy której ćwiczę
to pump me up – nakręcać (to make someone feel more excited)
When it comes to hot drinks in the winter, my go-to Starbucks order is a tall decaf sugar-free vanilla soy misto.
an order – zamówienie
decaf – bezkofeinowa
misto – kawa z mlekiem (Café au lait)
Hope you enjoyed.
See you in my next post :)
