Workout

Have you ever participated in a themed run? Well but have you participated in a cinema run that actually explains and shows you places that have seen in the movies? Well I did! and it was fun! And all these places we also captured by camera for a living proof that were there.

The fun part that this run was quite patriotic – all Latvians! not snobbing other people, but it was organized by an outdoor training club in Riga and as were visiting Milan they set up this activity, where I was happy to take a part in and explore a little bit of the culture and also make new native friends living in Milan. ( Was not aware that we are so many here).

How the run went – here are summary and pictures. Read More

Fit food & Drinks, Travel

Who doesn’t know Milan? Capital of Fashion, Design and Inspiration of many artists as well as models, starlets and celebs. A wonderful place to soak-in culture, get creative and be inspired. However last years been noticing that Milan is improving more also on healthy food trends and following the global trend for urban cities offering bigger and wider healthy lunch selection. What makes foodies, vegans and healthy eaters happier and life easier ( talking of leaving that pre-packed salad at home and going out with friends for lunch).

This time wanted to share with you one of my favorite, healthy hot-spots of Milan – That’s Vapore. This place is truly green (in thinking and interior) offering a nice concept lunches served in baskets that are freshly prepared every day. Milan there are just 2 places but they are expanding and opened their first place also in London (Baker Street) as well.  Read More

This week you can definitely feel the changes in the air, not only in temperature dropping but also with all the things happening around me and seems that with the change with the season is getting active not only sports clubs but also different events – sporty events. There was already several runs, Fluo run, The Color run (pity I had to skip it due to my Japan trip) and now there are another interesting event/run coming up in Milan this weekend that you should check it out! Unfortunately cannot participate as I am under antibiotics for this week (got unexpected medical intervention) , so I will be cheering for all the girls taking part in it (…aaand silently envying them), as it looks it will be some great event!

Hello Kitty coming to Expo Milan 2015 or Japan Day in pictures

Last week had been real intense and full with vivid moments, like a Japan Day and special parade at Expo 2015 Milan. As working for a Japanese company than this was a major event for us as Hello Kitty is the ambassador of Japanese Pavilion in the expo, and as I work for Hello Kitty it has been intense period. So Saturday finally came and we could enjoy the parade fully.  As I have a wonderful summer kimono  I got it during my trip to Japan than this was a great opportunity to wear it and so I did it. (I must say I got a lot of attention as after all being a blond girl wearing kimono is not something you see every day therefore got asked many questions about the Japan, the fair, the expo, opening times, requests to translate things from Japanese to English, take pictures, etc., so felt as famous as Hello Kitty itself of all that attention).

Here is how it went in pictures. Read More

Happy Monday hot Milan! Ready to confront another work week? I am! Determined, charged and ready for new challenges and achievements – one step at a time!

If you were following me on Twitter and Instagram you already knew that went running a mile with Nike Training Club Milano to show how fast I am. and I must say, it went even better than I thought. Hadn’t been able to run more than a month not even talking about speed running, so was pretty nervous but all good that ends good and just jump right in and confront my fears just by Doing it without too much thinking! (too much thinking kills the courage, so I am not hesitating but just taking opportunities and accept challenges when they comes in front of me without much consideration if the feeling is right.)

It was such a great pleasure to meet and see so many smiley, active and positive people at one place and coming together to do something fit and just enjoy their Thursday evening sporty not by regular bar hopping and Milan apperetivos, even though there was a bar – a juice bar with a freshly squeezed smoothies to recharge our batteries after our mile along the Naviglio.

Hello in Monday! Another weekend has gone by and time to return to a daily routine. Some of us get some rest and relax while some of us, had been busy bees this weekend, like me, and did million things. Active rest is the best rest for me so also this weekend tried to explore and do new things and spend weekend fit.

On Sunday at Milan’s artificial lake- Idroscalo was first Fitness parade – Milano Spring Parade with many courses, exhibitions and music to get prepared for summer, get in shape and move to the music. As one fit missy with an explorer spirit always try out new and fun things of course I headed there as well to see and try for myself several activities and courses.

In my to do list, after studying the program, was a stage – dance class with a MOMA (dance school in Milan) instructor, Zumba (to do some aerobics and burn some calories),  Kangoo Power class as well as Nike Training Club class. Plan thut burns, huh?  Read More

This week Milan is sunny and can totally feel the Spring in the air therefore I decided that today I will go to work again with my bike – my lovely Mr.Holland.

As I have moved out of the city center than bicycle comes here handy to speed up things and also is a great way to exercise while you are not really exercising – just reaching your destination, which you would need to do anyway – one way or another, so why not use this occasion to burn off some calories and cycling is a perfect way to burn off calories, it is fast and efficient and no pollution!

Hello Kitty says – “Say Hi when you see me” and after last Friday I can say the same thing.

Had a great fun posing for a Hello Kitty and Katy Perry special Prismatic tour t-shirt. The best part was going wild and rocking that T-shirt around the Milan.

The original picture is on their official Facebook fan page here.

But the real fun/jumping workout behind it you can see only here.
