APIVITA

Stumbled across APIVITA in Amsterdam’s Bee Beauty on Roelof Hartstraat, the store front attracted me. This product originated out from Greece. All products contain between 80%-100% natural products and has none of those really bad things like, SLS, ALES, ALS Parabens, MIT, BHT Petrochemicals (Mineral & Paraffin Oils) Synthetic Perfumes (Phthalates , PCM) Genetically Modified Organisms…

Waiting for Winter

Now I am not saying that I am wishing winter to come early… But I will be honest I can’t wait to get my knit on. Knit headgear is always a winner and the great thing about it is that you can never have too many. I need to start knitting these puppies instead of…

Turkish Beach Towels

I was in Nice, France this past weekend and saw a few people using Turkish beach towels on the beach. By the end of the weekend I was hunting down one to buy. They are so much more elegant than normal beach towels and they dry way quicker. They are also lighter to carry and so…

Nice Nice

I spent a long weekend in Nice, France this August. The sheer beauty of this city is astonishing. It has everything from beautiful buildings to a gorgeous coastline. I could really spend a whole summer here soaking up the sun, swimming, eating and shopping. My notes: – Definitely go in summer… but be warned all…

Hitting the underground, the London underground

I’ve been absolutely dying to go to London since my early teens. It took me longer than anticipated, but I got there, and it was amazing. I love this city, I could very easily live there. My notes: – Catch the Hop on, Hop off bus, its very helpful to get a good bearing of…

Celebrating Easter Swiss style

For Easter I decided to visit some friends in Zurich. Unfortunately the weather was bad, rain, lots of low hanging clouds, so I didn’t get to see all the great mountain surrounding views that I had heard so much about. Also a key thing to take note of is that they are Catholic there so…

Head First Down the Slopes of Innsbruck, Austria

In March, I decided to give skiing a try… so Innsbruck was the battleground. I have heard horror stories about first time skiing trips… but I can say that I survived but not without my fair share of tears, bumps and bruises. Innsbruck is a lovely little city, both to look at and to shop. The…

Snowy Stockholm, Sweden

I loved Stockholm, even though I went at the coldest time of the year, January… The whole weekend I was there, I think it hovered in the -10C, total madness. This city is amazing and so beautiful. I stayed in the Old Town which has beautiful little streets and shops that you can get lost…

48 hours in Istanbul, Turkey

I spent 48 hours in Istanbul during a work trip. It is a vibrant city, loads of colours, noise and craziness. I stayed in Ortakoy, it’s a lovely area near the Bosphorus. On the weekend, during the day it’s lively with markets and at night its the same. Two things to keep in mind, firstly…

Surreal Santorini, Greece

The definition of heaven on earth is Santorini… This is where I want to retire. If you are single, in a relationship, married, widowed you will find peace and happiness in this place. I went the end of september and the weather was still so amazing. Everyday sun, no clouds, no rain. Happiness lives everywhere…
