7 Ways to Slay Your Ski Weekend in France

bridge view morzine france

I said goodbye to last year in style with a quick winter weekend in Morzine, France. While I love skiing and had a blast skiing in Chamonix before, I decided to use the time to rest up instead before the holiday mayhem. Instead, there was tons of wintry activities to look forward to, delicious cosy meals, and plenty of bubbles by the hot tub. Yas girl, I was ready. I strongly suggest you use up a bit of you holiday time to try a snowy weekend this year before the…

Preparing for Winter Wonderland: Walking Tips in the UK

Walking holidays in the UK do not end because it’s wintertime. I was shocked when our British friends suggested an outdoor getaway to Scotland in December last year! When it gets cold, I immediately think of fleeing to somewhere tropical. Not a place covered in snow. Or at least, I’m going to stay inside if there’s a blizzard outside. But I’ve learned that it’s wildly refreshing to spend time outdoors in the winter – especially as the short days make for less hours in the daylight. My mood was greatly…

Biking Benefits in London

B'Twin Triban 500 SE Road Bike by decathlon

My yoga practice is going just peachy, but let’s be real. I got to move my behind way more. Stretching and asanas made me feel active and worked well for a while to keep my heart rate pumping. But as my mental health began to improve, as my desire to be social, get out and, well, eat. And drink. I’ve noticed my weight creeping up again, which is discouraging after I had been working so hard. I wanted to find something to do in the city I could enjoy on…

Is the IAmsterdam Card Worth the Trip?

A polarization of beauty and sin, bicycle bells and flowing canals to windows filled with scantily clad women; it’s amazing this city functions so well. In fact, it seems to be exactly what we all should aspire to – adopting the idea of live and let live. No one seems to be scandalized by the tolerance of soft drugs and prostitution at all in Amsterdam. In fact, it makes the scenic areas of the city even more pleasing, as it shows how harmoniously sophistication and a little hedonistic fun can…

My Top 5 Perfect Island Properties Worldwide

I think islands are so fascinating. I’ve built a life where I can be as connected as possible, located near a large airport or big city at all times. This proves well for having friends and family across the globe and a career that takes me frequently to new destinations. But funnily enough I find myself going to islands more than anything else, feeling the tight-knit community and island vibe immediately soothes me. Jade Mountain, St. Lucia Most likely you’ve seen shots of this iconic hotel on a travel booking…

How Visiting a Nude Beach in Menorca Helps with Body Acceptance

Cala Macarelleta menorca spain

“Bonjour, do you have the time?” said the old Frenchman walking towards us on Cala Macarelleta beach. We were wading waist-high in crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, enjoying a perfect day. While X the husband tried to explain in bad French our watches were set on London time, I realized something unusual about the smiling, tanned man approaching us. He was completely naked as the day he was born. As was his grinning wife behind him – just a straw hat perched lopsided on her head. I tried to…

Splash Out in Tenerfie, Spain

yoga garanchico

Expecting more of an African island vibe considering it’s close proximity to the continent, I was so surprised that Tenerife was absolutely Spanish. There was no doubt – I could have been in the center of Seville instead of 600 miles from the mainland (or as they say, the ‘peninsula’). Tenerife Highlights: Outdoors How can you stay inside at all while on a sunny island? The beaches are perfect, as is the pool scenes at many of the upscale hotels. But I also really loved driving down the coastline and…

To truly develop your entire being, body and mind, all have to be considered part of the journey. In other words, when I drink a ton of wine, it’s going to make my mood real crappy too. Exhibit A: All the Tuscan wine I could carry home from Sasso Di Sole. Anything in excess, whether it’s food, fun or just dwelling on negative thoughts means you’re going have a bad time. Awareness of this and of your connections inside and out are so important to feeling good. As I started…
