Another extremely hot Milan weekend is over but luckily for me, survived it by the swimming pool as trying to get some color before heading for vacations this weekend to a chilly Latvia. As it has been extremely hot last month here in Italy and in general south of Europe, than being extra careful when getting exposed in the sun is extremely important, especially when the UV index is as high as here and humidity is more than 90%.

Here are 7 the most important rules about Sun I have learned from Women’s Health, Cosmopolitan and dermatologists. Read More

A day getaway to Coast of the Dolphins – Santa Margherita Ligure

Have you ever had a feeling just that you are having overwhelmed by everything that you just feel like running away even if for a day, to relax and just get out of the city and change the air? Well I had this feeling and I knew I have to get away and these times the first destination that pops in m head is – beach! Because for me nothing is better than running away to a place where sand is under your feet and salt in your hair.. and as I have an explorer spirit who loves to try new things, see new places and have different experiences than chose to go to some Ligurian beach near Genoa.

Santa Margherita actually was visited by an accident as it was suggested by a kind man on the street when asked for directions to the beach at Rapallo. The place is really beautiful and definitely one of the pearls of Liguria. (Some more information about the city, attractions ,sport activities, accommodation, etc. can find in their tourism homepage).

But here are my day at Coast of Dolphins in pictures. Read More

Restaurant review: Alle Terrazze – a gem of Sicily

Time has come to take out my last card up from my sleeve at share the last part if my Sicilian adventure – the Historical Bathing Establishment of Mondello beach or nowadays restaurant Alle Terrazze.

The place historically had been established 103 years ago as a bathing establishment of royalty and elevated social class allowing them to spend their summers enjoying the sunshine on the terrace stretching out over the clear blue water and having a fine dining experience in beautiful saloons or sipping coffee overlooking the sea.

The place nowadays has kept the same values and beauty and offers a wonderful lunch and dining experience in this majestic historical building.

As a new experience and local food seeker that loves to try new things, tastes and enjoys wonderful view, especially sea view, than having a wild caught sea fish for a lunch was more than just “good idea!”.  Read More

Travel: Exploring Sicily – Mondello beach

Happy midsummer everyone! Today is Sunday, midsummer and also my name day therefore triple reason to make this day special. (Already started with some fit pancakes and homemade frozen yogurt (recipe soon will follow) ice cream). Also Sunday is about traveling and sharing my stories and tips and today is not an exception – I will share my second part of my Sicily getaway – exploring Palermo beach – Mondello.

Mondello is a beach for people in Palermo that can be reached in 20 min from Palermo with car or  25 min with a public bus nr. 806 from Palermo – stop Piazza Don Sturzo. (Time table you can find on AMAT homepage and ticket costs 1,4 eur (absolutely mandatory), the bus goes every 15 minutes, so no really need to rush.)

As our main objective of this short weekend break was to hit the beach and get some tan than that was exactly we did our second morning right after waking up.  Read More

Workout

Have you ever seen those girls in pictures posing on their hands or standing on on 1 feet or on head and look amazing and give a fun, fresh and new way of posing for pictures? Well I have and since than one of my fitness objectives has been to learn a handstand so I  can give an artistic, acrobatic and fun twist to my pictures too. Already put this on my visual board and to-do list for 2015 (which you can check here) so there is no backing out – just have to do it.

The first thing I did to get closer to my objective was Read More

Inspiration

Sometimes on Mondays we need some extra motivation and inspiration to make the week start right and set some new smaller goals and objectives to reach. This week did not start too good for me as I woke up feeling terrible this morning so I couldn’t manage to go to work, however now feeling a lot better and again full of energy and determination to keep going after my goals.

To do so – here is my weeks motivation – fit-inspiration to get back on track and dream big.

Travel: Daytrip cruise to Phi Phi Islands

In every trip there is a highlight – in my Thailand getaway it was definitely island hopping and exploring myself the famous Maya Bay where was shot the famous movie ” The Beach” with Leonardo di Caprio. Of course exploring this islands was kind of dream-come-true.

As we were at Phuket on peak season – Christmas holiday period than of course it was packed of tourists and that was the reason why everything cost at least double and was fully-booked. Therefore instead of 2 day trip around Phi-Phi islands with sleepover there we went for a day trip, which I must say was not bad at all.
