My feel good Summer morning routine - mind body and soul

Hey you, good morning! Today, did you already stop to consider how lucky you are to be alive? How cool is that we both live on a small blue planet rotating in the universe? If that’s not a miracle, I don’t know what is. Today I’m sharing with you my “feel good” Summer Morning Routine that will hopefully make you want to get out of bed every morning and face the day mindfully.

Vegan Cherry Clafoutis

Vegan Cherry Clafoutis

Which are your first childhood culinary memories? You know, those foods that just like Proust‘s Madeleines, take you back to another time and another place with just one bite. Perhaps in your mother’s kitchen, or at your grandparent’s house, foods that are familiar yet so distant in time. To me it’s always fascinating how flavors and smells can trigger so many memories, even things we thought were long forgotten. Many times I ask this same question to my husband, as coming from different countries we didn’t get to experience the same types of food as children, and every now and then I try to recreate his favorite foods but Vegan,...

5 amazing benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

5 amazing benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

We’ve just resurfaced from a short but noticeable internet downtime due to moving (yes, once again! We’re becoming pros). As we walked around our new home among unpacked boxes and well, the usual mayhem that follows a move, one of the first few things that we took out of its box and placed carefully was our beloved Himalayan Salt Lamp. Not the most useful thing in a new, empty house you might think? Well, you could be wrong, and this is the perfect opportunity to tell you why, and how a Salt Light can improve your life & home, too.

Coconut-Banana bread (one-bowl, no added sugar, Vegan)

Coconut-Banana bread (one-bowl, Vegan)

I have a confession to make. I’m not too crazy about banana bread. No please don’t leave just yet! :-) You must be thinking, I came here for the banana bread and she doesn’t even like it?! Well, the fact that it’s not on top of my favorites’ list doesn’t mean that I don’t get to bake a good banana bread as often as I can. See, it’s one of my husband’s favorite cakes instead – ah, the things we do for love ;D But this is not a simple Vegan banana bread – I’m sure you have pinned and saved many of such recipes already. This is the perfect...

Spring Pamper Routine – Vegan & Cruelty-free

Spring pamper routine

Some of my most highly requested posts are cruelty-free pampering routines – I’m glad more and more people are interested in Vegan & Cruelty-free beauty. So now it’s the perfect time to do a new one as Spring is here and I’ve changed quite a few of the products I love & use (also thanks to some massive hauls in the past few weeks). Today I’ll be pairing some old favorites with some newly found absolute must-haves. I try to do this pamper routine once a week, mostly on Sundays when I’m back from trail running. Usually I’m not this high-maintenance, I even have simple minimalist routines during the week....

Italian Bean Soup, because winter is not over yet

Italian Bean Soup, because winter is not over yet

This week, thanks to warmer temperatures, even if we’re still one month away from the actual arrival of Spring, I really started feeling vernal. Blame it on the birds just outside our windows that wake up in the morning the same time as me – making me feel like in an old-school Disney movie; blame it on the daylight that starts to linger a little longer before giving in to twilight… Anyway, today I was about to share with you my most colorful, flower-filled, spring-themed smoothie you’ve ever seen… And then this happened.   I don’t usually share soup recipes, even though we cook and eat at least one each...

5 tips how to stay focused and motivated

how to stay focused and motivated

There’s something about the beginning of a new year that gets most of us excited to get organized, detoxed, start new activities, challenges, miraculous (?) morning routines and possibly a new sport. Truth is, new year’s resolutions could be started just as well all through the previous or following 12 months, but our minds work that way (it’s a bit like “I’ll start the diet on Monday” kinda feeling) and if a state of mind can finally make us set & work towards achieving new goals, let’s take advantage of it! Clearly, if you work from home like me, it’s crucial to have self-discipline. So this is the perfect opportunity...
