Today, I want to share my laser hair removal experience I am having at Dr. Chichakli‘s clinic in Vienna, because it has quite literally changed my life. Body hair is an incredibly personal but also unavoidably political topic, since its presence is natural and its removal is tied to socially reinforced beauty ideals. I respect everyone’s opinion and everyone should choose itself either shun hair removal, shave or wax or pay for laser hair treatments. Since a teenager I am the biggest enemy of body hair, so this treatment is by far the best decision I ever made.
Last but not least, today I want to tell you everything about Bali and my personal favorite places where to stay, eat, shop as well as what to see and do in this beautiful tropical paradise. Some say this island is overrated, a paradise that has lost its way and getting dirtier every year. But really it has just devopleped transforming from a low-key hippie haven to a enormous soulful place, where you can stay smart but still find a barefoot vibe.
Hiding deep between the Dachstein mountains, approximately one hour far from Salzburg, with its lakeside views and charming old buildings make Hallstatt one of the most charming villages in Europe. There must have been fairytales born from this spot and so perfect, that China made an exact replica of the village to serve as high-end housing. When I heard about this fact I had to laugh, because they can really go too far doing replicas! *giggles*
It’s time to dust off your sparkly dresses and glam up your beauty routine.
By the end of this year, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate the last days of December and get ready for 2018. It’s cold and dark outside, but it’s time to sparkle and be colourful – especially with the right make-up products. Brave ones will continue wearing mascara and eye-liner pencil and lot of colourful pigments around the eyes. So that the look doesn’t appear too strong, lipstick and rouge should stay minimal. Overall for this season either eyes or lips should be remarkable, because less is more.
Whether you are looking for beautiful beaches, DJ’s or good cocktails, here I want to share my personal favorite beach clubs and the hottest addresses to chill and party the holiday hours in Bali. The best beach clubs cover the island from Uluwatu to Ubud, offering cool music, watersports, beautiful bamboo beach bars and sunset cocktail views. The best way to spend sunny or cloudy days are definitely lounging on a sun bed, cocktail in one hand, book in the other while listening to either the residential DJ or crashing waves. Whether you are spending your holidays in Seminyak, venturing down south, or have decided to go Island-hopping – here I have a list of Bali’s hottest beach clubs for you.
Since you can find everything online, travel booklets and destination brochures are long gone. Bali is loved by many travelers and holds a special place in so many hearts. Those traveling to Bali visit the island for many different reasons, and do things very differently to what I will try to recommend in this guide.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s „Eat, Pray, Love“ put Bali on the map as a single girl’s romantic „finding yourself“ destination. So if you are a devoted traveler and looking for a home, you might just consider dropping your bags for next several months. But overall, Bali is so much more. You can dress it up in accommodation or dress it down and still have a great experience, which is one of the main reasons why I love Bali.
“The richest human isn’t the one who has the most, but the one who needs less. Wealth is a mindset. Want less and appreciate more today.”
I am always fascinated by the association between the way we enjoy happiness on a daily basis and how we choose to live our lives. There are choices that you make every day, some of which seem completely unrelated to your happiness, that dramatically impact the way you feel mentally and physically. In our daily lives it’s easy to miss the forest for the trees and completely overlook some of the small, simple things that can disproportionally affect our levels of happiness and general fulfillment in life.
Sweating is the body’s way of regulating heat, cooling us down, and expunging toxins—but for millions of people, sweating is more than something that happens when it’s warm outside or after SoulCycle, thanks to a chronic condition called hyperhidrosis. Well, everyone who works in fashion knows it well – the rings of moisture have taken hold of new silk blouses or embroidered cotton-linen dresses. Oh, we won’t talk about the suede dresses. Unthinkable!
After Jimbaran, Ubud and Seminyak, we decided to spend our last week in Nusa Dua. A peninsula in South Bali and well known as an enclave of high-end hotels and resorts. The beaches are glorious – sand, deep, long and clean. We made the right choice and choose Conrad Bali for our last days in Bali.
