10 FAVORITE PODCASTS TO ENHANCE YOUR LIFE AND CAREER

September 10, 2019

Over the past couple months, I’ve been getting so much into podcasts. I never thought I’d ever become a podcast person. Although I read lot of self-improvement, spiritual healing, sociology, psychology and career books, sometimes I prefer to listen to podcasts. It’s something different than books or watching TV and I love learning about new things in different ways. Inspirational podcasts give me another level of happiness and I consider it as a #SelfCare time, when I need to switch-off and motivate myself for new things.

If you want to try one podcast out, learn something new, become inspired, and get motivated or become better at your job, check out what I am listening to right now:

We wanted to go back to a method that’s more focused on producing solid content. A podcast has you really working your imagination as you disconnect from the world around you. It’s a fun, modern medium and lets us properly explore a topic in depth.” says Monica Ainley and Camille Charrière on Vogue.fr interview. Download it here.

JOMO: JOY OF MISSING OUT

August 28, 2019

In the beginning of the 2016 I was almost experiencing a burnout, which made me very unhappy from the inside. I used to attend every event, meeting people everyday, working non-stop, traveling a lot, going to the fashion weeks etc. I became literally like a robot, and everything became very static. I came to realize that nothing can make me happy, if I don’t fix my inside first. Slowly, I learned to say ‘NO’ and instead of events or meetings, I started to take care of myself and do more grounded things. As I no longer have FOMO “Fear Of Missing Out”, I am much happier and content with the person I am today. Therefore I want to share few tips, how you can also practice the art of JOMO:

HOW I TREATED MY ANXIETY NATURALLY

August 13, 2019

This is probably the most vulnerable and personal article I am sharing with you today. Have you ever heard about anxiety and do you know how it feels? It happens suddenly, and you feel a period of excessive worry. You start worrying about everything, even about the things you have to do. You worry about your responsibilities at work, and all the obligations you have in your personal life. Then the constant aching feeling that you are not doing enough disturbs you, and so the blockage of letting go of the fear becomes very difficult.

#PLASTICFREEPLANET: LET’S CARE TOGETHER

August 10, 2019

As much as I love to talk about fashion and cosmetic industry, there is nothing more I care about than our planet we live in. We need to protect the ocean that gives us the oxygen to breathe, that regulates the climate and brings us clean water to drink. There is ONLY one ocean that covers our planet we live in.

A 2014 study estimated that 8 million metric tons of plastic trash enter the sea from land every year. 90% of the plastic is not recycled and this creates a major problem. Why? Because plastics are synthetic chemicals that should not exist in our planet. Most plastics are not biodegradable (meaning the bacteria cannot break them down into harmless components the way it happens to the paper or wood). The worse happens when plastic ages; the sun’s light and heat break the plastic into smaller and smaller pieces. This tiny plastic confetti, along with larger pieces of floating plastic, creates a dangerous problem to our health and our planet .

NO SWEAT, NO STRESS: WHY I TRIED miraDRY?

June 24, 2019

Have you ever heard about hyperhidrosis? Today I want to explain my story. Excessive underarm sweating always affected my life, until I decided to microwave my underarms two years ago. I grew up in South East Europe, more precisely in Kosovo, where temperatures would reach 45 degrees from June to September. I always felt embarrassed to wear something colorful that showed the wet marks under my arms. Sometimes even in the coldest days of winter in Vienna, I’d have wet marks under my arms due to stress or being nervous.
