#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 .

A TRAVEL GUIDE TO MÉRIDA, MEXICO

February 3, 2019

The Yucatán Peninsula is more than a white-sand-beach exotic destination. This area has so much to offer, such as the unique and vibrant city Mérida. When I planned to visit Mexico, I definitely wanted to make a short trip to Mérida, which is the capital and largest city in Yucatan state in Mexico. Though it’s called “The White City” (named after its limestone buildings), Mérida has the kindest people, eye-catching colonial architecture, a unique heritage, charming museums, art galleries, great traditional Mexican food and many more.

Indeed, it was the first time I have visited Mexico and now I am very excited to tell you everything about this trip.

FAVORITE ROOFTOP BARS IN NEW YORK CITY

October 17, 2018

The city that never sleeps, has definitely the best rooftop views. If you are planning to visit New York City and don’t know where to go for the best cocktails, appetizer and views. Here are my top favorite rooftop bars in NYC:

1 Rooftop Garden & Bar

One of my favorite rooftop bar in NYC, has a beautiful open air rooftop space with outstanding views of Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. Open seasonally, the lounge poolside with NYC skyline views and handcrafted cocktails from the rooftop bar, then you can cool off with a dip in plunge pool (open seasonally). Go for afternoon cocktails and bites, to enjoy the best view over the Brooklyn Bridge. Try the Poolside cocktail, with a delicious watermelon taste or my favorite Heatstroke cocktail. For food, I suggest the Black Bean Burger and Tuna Poke.

Bar SixtyFive at Rainbow Room

Probably the most exclusive rooftop bar in NYC, on the 65th floor of 30 Rock. Located on the west end of the 65th floor, adjacent to the Rainbow Room, Bar SixtyFive at Rainbow Room hast the highest outdoor terrace bar in New York City. In a very classy space, you can have curated cocktails, also wonderful Sunday brunch. Excellent food and desserts, as well as a award-winning brunch cocktails, is worth to experience it once.

THE PLAZA 1920’s LIFESTYLE EXPERIENCE

Get ready for the exclusive insights of my “Golden Twenties” experience at Vienna’s stylish hotel – Hilton Vienna Plaza. Located right in the heart of the famous Vienna’s Ringstraße, The Plaza is in walking distance to St. Stephen’s Cathedral and other important sights of the city. The building was built in 1872 as a primer hotel (Hotel Austria) for the World Exposition, which was due to take place a year later (the Ottoman Foundation of Ahmed from Constantinople and an Egyptian assembly with mosque and minaret has been constructed at the same time).

WMW

March 5, 2018

What makes us want to travel and explore the world? Of course, the cultural differences we encounter. Being able to understand the humans from their cultural standpoint of where they come from and what they believe, as well as where those beliefs come from. Therefore I want to talk about the World Museum or Weltmuseum Wien (former Museum of Ethnology) in Vienna, which is the largest anthropological museum in Austria build in 1876. Located in the Hofburg Imperial Palace, WMW has a comprehensive ethnographical and archaeological objects from Asia, Africa, Oceania, and America. Since November 2014 the museum was closed due to renovation and was reopened on the 25th of October 2017.

Ethnological museums are witnesses to the cultural diversity and changes of our human societies. – WMW

Today, I am taking you inside the Museum of fine Arts in Vienna, which is one of the most important European museum buildings opened in 1891. The magnificent architecture creates a fitting setting for the artistic treasures assembled by the Habsburgs, amongst the most breathtaking in the world. The collections range from Ancient Egyptian and Greek and Roman Antiquities to Medieval Art and the splendid Renaissance and Baroque. So the museum is divided into eight different collections, some of which are housed in the Hofburg and in Schönbrunn Palace.
