About Once in a blue moon…

Welcome! My name is Ingrida! I’m originally from Lithuania however due to my job I moved to Melbourne, Australia three years ago. I’m a loving mother & wife, IFBB Figure competitor, self-taught photographer and I love experimenting in my kitchen. After getting annoyed by friends (just kidding) requesting recipes, I decided to take my passion to the next level and share my food journey (and a bit of everything else) with you =)


It took a long time for me to come to this decision as I knew that writing a blog requires lots of time and excellent writing skills. Do I write? Yes, I do! My job is about doing research and writing scientific articles and reports. But this is a completely different story (if interested, check my professional profile). My Lithuanian teacher used to say that my essays are too “mathematical”…. Well, I guess that’s because I prefer simplicity over exaggeration and embellishment. This is completely true and you will find that some of my posts are pretty short, straightforward and without preamble.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you will find my blog interesting, inspiring and encouraging to discover your own destiny!
