New York State of Mind

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…

Oh! So Croatia

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…

4 Easy Ways to Achieve Your Skin Goals

Of course there are many organic and “non-organic” ways of achieving a glowing skin. The below article is just couple of easy ways that I know and do to achieve a younger looking, glowing skin. Healthy Eating – Eat your greens, kids! Because you become what you eat, and if you want to glow from within this has to be through the food you eat. Here in the UK, people mostly just pay attention to what it says on the food label and could easily eat a microwaveable soup if it is 2 of your five a day. What they don’t realise is while they are heating that soup in that plastic, they are consuming all the chemicals as well, also I don’t even want to talk about the sugar and sodium inside those already made food options. Hence, don’t just check the label. Cook it at home, and buy…

Summer is finally here and It’s finally that time of the year again: bikini season!

Got so many compliments every time I wore it, and it is very flattering due to tummy control! You can find…

A Balanced Jetlag Diet

How do I keep a balanced and healthy lifestyle? Being a blogger and almost every month travelling to another country, flying 10-12 hours a month, may look good on insta, but is horrible for the health & skin.While doing my job, the most frequently asked question I get is. How do I keep my glow and still look youthful. The answer is below: Healthy eating Luckily we millennials are very lucky. We have access to healthy food wherever/ (almost) which ever country we go. The thing is: it’s not the abundance of it, the habitual factors are what stop us. That’s why from a very early age, I unplugged the “oh I’m so sad” and “food can make me feel happier”relevancy in my brain. Yes of course I eat bad stuff, we all do. But it’s always controlled. I love my body and want to keep it healthy. Being healthy…

Afternoon Tea at Bermondsey Square Hotel

Afternoon tea in London probably rates quite high on the to-do list of anyone visiting England’s capital. There’s just nothing like the traditional British afternoon tea. . So when I was going to an afternoon tea at Bermondsey Square hotel with my friend, obviously I was over the moon! And I think this has to be some of the best afternoon tea I’ve ever had as we were treated like absolute royalty by the Hotel staff and the tea and cakes really just spoke for themselves…oh and the clotted cream and scones. Yum! We were given a selection of traditional British finger sandwiches, warm plain and fruit scones served with delicious Cornish clotted cream and a selection of rich fruity jams. Completing the afternoon indulgence, the Afternoon Tea was served with a selection of the Chef’s daily home-made cakes. Everything was incredibly fresh and tasty. We were licking our fingers at the end,…
