I am not going to lie, getting closer to 30 is scaring me. After 25, I’ve definitely started to see the changes on my skin. I ask myself the paradoxical question though, do I see the change more because I am paying more attention to it, or I am paying more attention to it, as my skin is bothering me more? Normal healthy skin has a nice epidermis with a smooth cornified, or outer, layer that acts as a good barrier to water and environmental injury. Skin color and tone is even and unblemished. Components such as collagen (which provides skin firmness), elastin (which supplies skin elasticity and rebound) and glycosaminoglycans or GAGs (which keep the skin hydrated) are all abundant. However, science tells us, after the tender age of 20 our skin starts producing 1% less collagen each year. Let alone all the pollution out there, and good luck…

I’ve suffered from PMS since I can remember, seriously the most horrible time of the month for women, I naively thought. I could also see the similar symptoms among my friends, which made it normal to suffer? Throughout the years I used various apps to track my periods but little did I know that PMS is all related to our hormones and that if we could understand it better, we can tackle it better too! Then I found AVA bracelet and it transformed my life. So, what makes the Ava Bracelet different than others? You can use Ava bracelet for 3 different reasons (which I will mention below), however, mine was to understand my body better by tracking my cycles. Unlike the apps we tend to use, Ava bracelet checks the important parameters during night (skin temperature, resting pulse rate, breathing rate, HRV ratio, and the amount of sleep you…

London is incredibly pretty and sparkly this Christmas. So I wanted to make it even more special and memorable this year, and experience a fine dining during festive season. While I was checking restaurants at Bookatable, I have come across this amazing offer: free champagne! I was actually surprised to see how many restaurants there are with this offer and how easy Booktable made it for us to see the restaurants with this offer! You can have a look at the restaurants here. It probably took me couple of hours to to choose though, as there are just too many restaurants that I am looking forward to visit, but in the end having heard great reviews about this specific restaurant, we decided to go ahead with Ormer Restaurant. Shaun Rankin has opened the restaurant, who has received a Michelin star in 2005 for his first restaurant. He held this for…

Christmas time in London is very special, but I think this year London has outdone itself. I’ve never seen this city as Christmassy, it’s almost all the restaurants and stores decorated themselves making sure they are all ready for the sparkliest time of the year.  Sketch is one of the most well-known restaurants in London, not only because of the quality of its cuisine but also because its gorgeous decor and of course famous egg shaped toilets. This year, however, they took one step further and redecorated their famous toilets for Christmas. Having seen this all over social media, and wanting to check out their Afternoon Tea for a very long time, I decided to visit the gorgeous pink room, aka The Gallery, and see what’s it all about! David Shrigley’s mind blowing art pieces decorates the walls of the famous pink room, hence the name. Once you step in,…

I was so beyond the moon when I heard that The Blogger Programme is taking us to New York! Having studied there couple of years ago, I had nothing but good memories there and couldn’t wait to add even better ones! On the day of our travel, we met at the lounge of United Airlines in Heathrow, once I see my influencer family, I already knew it was going to be an incredible trip! United airlines’ lounge was actually great, and some of us had already started drinking mimosas! I remember looking at the amount of food choices and getting even hungrier. And considering we had a 7 hour flight, meant that I could eat as much as I want! Once we got on the plane, we found that me and Massiel were actually sitting next to each other. I wasn’t feeling tired at all and knowing she can never sleep…

I was planning to go to Split for a long time, so when I heard that The Blogger Programme is planning a trip there I was beyond happy! Plus I was going to get together with my TBP family! There are not many airlines that fly directly to Split unfortunately, but  luckily Wizz Air does fly directly, and they have low fare flight options.I have flown with them couple of times now and the service also compared to the other low cost airlines have always been much better! They have a great wide choice of food on board, and the staff is just lovely! Located in the Eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, this city has always mesmerised me. While landing at Split, I could see the stunning shore, and why people can’t stop talking about the Dalmatian coast. Once landed, we were welcomed by the beautiful weather of course. Even though…
