Where to stay, eat, drink, shop and relax at hot springs in Iceland’s beautiful capital city
*NOTE:Unfortunately we are still in unusual times, and the COVID-19 regulations change rapidly. Please check here the latest information before making your journey to Iceland.
I already knew that September will start with a lot of work appointments, new projects and a travel destination that I have planned for the end of the month. But I would have never thought, that I would travel to Iceland on September 4th so spontaneously. My Icelandic friend and business partner, who lives in Vienna, asked me two days before the flight— if I can travel with her and her twins to Iceland for personal reasons. Without even thinking, I said “Yes, I will come and help you!”, and after a few minutes I realized “OMG, I am going to my dream island on Saturday, holy moly!”
Surely, I knew that this is not a typical work trip, nor a vacation—so I couldn’t plan too much. However, my friend was so kind to think about me and connect me with her Icelandic friends, who could give me tips on where to stay or where to go while I am in Reykjavik. So, the tips I am sharing with you here, are my personal as well as tips from the local insiders.
Finally it slowly feels like we are getting back to normal. Today, I am extremely excited to re-start the fashion category on my blog with a new exclusive brand— NEHERA.
NEHERA is an independent Slovak brand that is reviving the legacy of the famous brand that was founded in the 1930s and made history by impeccable design, quality, manufacturing and retail around the world. The craft tradition of the Slovak textile industry goes back to the first clothing factory, which was founded on the European mainland in Prostejov, the hometown of Jan Nehera, in 1868.
September is when we slowly start to say goodbye to summer days and welcome the beautiful golden season of fall. When everyone is going back to school and work, for me this month starts with a lot of work appointments, events, new projects and new travel destinations. On September 2nd, The Fragrance Foundation Austria honoured me to be one of the expert jury members of this year’s DUFTSTARS 2021.
Outstanding perfume creations were awarded at the DUFTSTARS Gala 2021, with the highest award in the perfume and cosmetics industry.
Need a bedroom makeover to create a beautiful and serene room— just like in a five-starhotel bedroom? Here are my tips on how to make your bedroom as fancy as a hotel room.
Luxury hotel bedrooms are mostly minimally decorated, with a neutral color scheme, have crisp white sheets and small décor details— all of these details play a crucial role in creating a calming space—something that gives vacation vibes. The reality is, our bedrooms at home don’t feel as calm as hotel rooms, but if you follow these few steps—chances are that you won’t want to leave your bedroom anymore.
Longer than ten years ago, we were just starting to hear about different beauty treatments, even lasers seemed totally sci-fi. We have also heard a lot about liposuction, but have you heard about fat freezing? Fat reduction is here to stay (or take off). It is the number one cosmetic procedure for the body that is growing over time.
No risk, no surgery, no downtime and no stitches. So these machines also do the work of melting before removing by making fat removal much more gentle with less pain and bruising.

Designers across the board have created their Spring/Summer 2021 collections, with creative cutouts and spicy bold colors to match the two-piece set.
Even though I turned 37 this year, I don’t see any major changes in my face, but prevention is better than cure. At the beginning of this year, I decided to visit Dr. Karin Bartsch to try Ultherapy. As we all know that, with age— face and décolleté area starts to loose the elasticity and firmness. No matter what skincare you use, the skin won’t be able to built collagen itself. When I heard about Ultherapy’s non-invasive, no-downtime skin lifting and tightening benefits— this treatment caught my attention immediately. Here is why I tried the Ultherapy?
