Relax is important

Do you take enough time to relax?
Taking time to unwind is important. Everyone needs to relax, the rest is necessary.
The idea is to give your mind, heart and body a chance to recharge.
I like to walk or cycle in the park (woods). It is a great way to calm down and clear your mind.
Walking or cycling also help you to switch off from the daily pressures. Getting fresh air also help you to relax and sleep better.

My another way how I love to relax is taking a warm bath.
It sounds simple, but a nice bath helps the muslces to relax. Adding aromatherapy candles, oils or salt to your bath encourages a feeling of calmness and relaxation. It feels great to let your worries dissolve into the water.

1.) Natural oils, such as coconut oil or olive oil, help to moisturize your skin and prevent dryness.
2.) The use of a loofa or sea sponge will remove dead skin cells to improve the appearance of radiant glowing skin.

Wishing you all a nice and relaxing time! :-)

Coffee break

I already mention in my older post that I'm a coffee lover.
I like to wake up in the morning and drink my coffee or stop after work in a nice cafe and relax for a while. A coffee shop is a place of energy. I love how it taste, smell and how it wakes me up.

Today was a rainy day, but that didn't stop us to go out. We visited an old bakery where we had our breakfast (proper French croissant, jam and cup of coffee). The place was very cute, with a Parisian ambiance. We had a great time.  :-)

A little reminder:
- Coffee can keep your skin healthy. 
- It gets rid of free radicals in the skin.
- Help in treating redness and inflammation of the skin. 
- Reduces the appearance of under-eye blue circles. 
- The best part ... it also helps you to get rid of cellulite.

Mix coffee grounds with olive oil (for cellulite). 
Now apply this mixture on affected area, wrap with plastic, leave it for 5-10 minutes and rinse with warm water.
Don't forget to use body lotion afterwards.

What does too much of coffee do to you?
Side effects: Insomnia, irregular heart beats, dizziness and headaches.
Coffee is also a known diuretic, which limits the body's ability to absorb water. For every cup of coffee drink at least the same amount of water to make up difference.
Consume your coffee in moderation, without sugar, cream or flavorings in order to maximaze health benefits.

Enjoy your cup of Joe, because nothing beats a hot cup of coffee in the morning. It is a great way to start the day.

Happy Summer!

Sunshine, sand, flip flops, skirts, shorts, cocktails ... walking barefoot ... awww, summertime!
I love summer, carefree time, feeling calm, being happy just by walking outside, while enjoying warm and sunny days.
Yes, it's time to relax and unwind. 
Take a rest, sit outside by the pool, put your feet up, sip lemonade and enjoy the world around you.

Have a great summer everyone!


Summer afternoon, summer afternoon: to me those have always been the most beautiful words in the English language.
~Henry James~

It's a smile, it's a kiss, it's a sip of wine ... it's summertime!
~Kenny Chesney~

Summer, summer, summer,
I wish it would be every day.
Summer, summer, summer,
Is taking my cares away.
When I'm sitting in the sun, reading my book
Or dive into the water, or take another look.
At summer, summer, summer,
Just .....
~Lyrics: Loft - Summer Summer

One of my favorite places during hot and sunny days :-)

Relaxing time

My week started very busy, I had so many things to do. But I believe, there's always time to relax, even if it's just for a little while.
One of my favorite places to relax is at home. It is a great place to chill and get away from the rush of normal life. 
Our home is lovely and cozy.
I love sitting with my boyfriend on the balcony, with our feet up, drinking wine and watching the sun go down. 
Plus, the view on Paris is always beautiful, it is a perfect place to dream.
Visualize a dream, chase a dream, live a dream!

When the stars are in the skies,
Make a wish then close your eyes.
Are you dreaming,
Angel singing,
Everything is right.
It's the magic of the night.

~The magic of the night lyrics, Enya~

What is your favorite place to relax?

Summer is finally here.
Are you excited?
I am, but with the sun and hot weather comes also extra care for our eyes and body.
Too much sun can increase the number of wrinkles under your eyes, plus overexposure to the sun damages your skin and speed up aging. 
So, this summer, protect your eyes with a stylish pair of shades.

Last week I received this lovely sunglasses from Firmoo. is the world most popular online store for eyewear. They cater for those who needs prescription lenses and those who don't.
That's why I was very happy to collaborate with them on my blog.
The sunglasses are very cute, colorful, just perfect for summer. The lenses are dark grey which gives a nice and modern look. The glasses came with a hard case to keep them well covered, protective sleeve, micro fiber lens cleaning cloth and tool kit.

Firmoo has such a wide variety of stylish glasses for an affordable price and hundreds of classic or fashion style frames.
They offer anti-scratch, anti-radiation and UV coating and tint, gradient tint and photochromic adds-ons...
The website is simply great. You can search by frame shape, upload your photo and do a virtual try on. 

For new customers only, Firmoo offers all frames on this page for free. Plus, full refund for dissatisfaction. Free offer include one frame, one complimentary case, one cleaning cloth and other accessories. You just need to pay for lenses and shipping.

Motivational quotes to inspire you

Hello Everyone!
Summer is just around the corner, so now it's the perfect time to get fit. There's always time to get that sexy body.
I'm one of those people who needs to be pushed or need a motivation. Sometimes I just prefer to relax and do nothing, but hey, that's not gonna help?
I'm trying to find the easiest way to get fit, but when it comes to working out it's always hard to start. My favorite sport is cycling, I cycle home from work almost every day. It is a nice way to see the city and one of the best way to exercise.


Here are some motivational quotes to inspire you.

Exercise is like an addiction, once you are in it, you feel like your body needs it.
~Elsa Pataky~ 

Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.
~John F.Kenedy~

All progress takes place outside the comfort zone.
~Michael John Bobak~

A fit, healthy body - that is the best fashion statement.
~Jess C.Scott~

Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out.
~John Wooden~ 

You must do things, you think you cannot do.
~Eleanor Roosevelt~

Good things come to people who wait, but better things come to those who go out and get them.

Healthy and delicious sushi

Do you like Japanese food?
I do, I love sushi a lot, it is very delicious and healthy. 
One of my favorite sushi is sashimi, because it is just the meat of the fish without any rice or extra ingredients. I always try to choose pieces that are rich in omega-3s. Salmon and tuna are low calorie, high in protein and also give a big dose of vitamin D.

I also heard that if anxiety and worries are consuming your day, you should try to eat salmon. It is the richest source of omega-3 fatty acids a nutrient that help calm and overcome your anxiety. Omega-3s also help reduce anger and irritability. 
Sounds great, isn't it?
The form of omega-3 that most strongly boost mood is found in salmon, herring, sardines and mackerel.
Bon Appetit!


I have to add one more thing. Sushi is the food I had the most success with to help my hair grow faster. 
Because as I already mentioned, sushi is extremely high in protein being made of rice, seeweed and raw fish, so it helps hair to grow faster. I eat fish at least once or twice a week. :-)
