Once a year my family gets together for a week of skiing in Saalbach, Austria. Saalbach is the largest ski resort in Austria with over 270km of slopes. We have been going to there for the past 12 years or so and have yet not had a chance to try every slope because there is so much to discover. This year we went for a week in mid-February. The weather wasn’t as good as it could have been with a few foggy and snowy days, but we also a couple of really nice sunny and warm days. We had a lovely time, filled with lots of skiing, yummy food, visits to the gym and spa. Below are a few of my favorite pictures from the trip. Hope you enjoy! Continue Reading…

Shrove Tuesday aka Pancake Tuesday is just around the corner. Funnily enough, this was never a day I looked forward to. In Austria it is typically celebrated by dressing up (think kids carnival dress up) and I just never liked it. Then I moved to England and found out that on Shrove Tuesday, it is perfectly acceptable to eat pancakes for dinner…I was immediately up for it!

After graduating from University and starting full-time employment I quickly realized that the two main components of my wardrobe consisted of office work wear and workout gear. I no longer have real use for those comfy jeans and slouchy tshirts that I used to wear all the time when hanging around the house. Now, during the week I wear my office outfits and I spend most of my weekends in gym wear. Continue Reading…

Banana (n)ice cream | Health Inspirations

For many people, eating breakfast can be a real chore. Just the thought of having to “waste” 10 minutes in the morning is a dreadful thought…10 minutes that could be better spent in bed. I have never had such a problem. Quite on the contrary, my morning cup of coffee and breakfast is what makes thought of getting up in the morning a little bit more appealing. Continue Reading…

The fact that it’s Friday is reason enough to celebrate! Another long week at work has come to an end and two glorious days of R&R (and doing laundry and cleaning the flat, of course!) are ahead of us. Friday also makes the perfect day to reflect back on the week and share a few of my favourite things (reads, products, stories, blogs, blog posts, recipes, etc, etc, etc.) from this past week. So here we go…. Continue Reading…

Root vegetable chips | Health Inspirations

Last week at work I was given a crate full of fresh fruit and vegetables so I challenged myself to create a new recipe. The veggies that I got weren’t anything I wouldn’t usually buy, so for exactly that reason I forced myself to think slightly outside the box and create something I had never before made.

For Christmas this year I was gifted a membership to Love Me Beauty, a online boutique that recommends beauty products for your personality and needs. I was immediately intrigued… Continue Reading…

Happy New Year. I hope you have all had a wonderful festive season and wild New Year’s celebration. I spent two weeks at home in Austria (as you may have seen from my instagram) and loved every minute of it. I’ve been back in England for a week so thought I’d get back into the swing of things and finally post another recipe. Continue Reading…

Last week I went on a whirl-wind trip to New York. We were all hoping for a winter wonderland, but when we got there we realized that the temperatures were more Spring-like than anything else. I managed to squeeze in quite a few fun things into just about 2 days and decided to film the highlights of the trip which include Top of the Rock and a nightly boat cruise around the Statue of Liberty.
