Norway has been the first Scandinavian country I’ve visited not only this year but in my entire life. I’ve had my eyes on Norway, Sweden and Finland since forever, but I never came around to visiting as somehow these countries always seemed unreachable. How come? It might have been because of the cooler climate, or the absence of Scandinavia in media that delayed my visits for a while. Whatever it was is long gone now, as I finally took my first step on Nordic land, and I had the pleasure of discovering Oslo at its most colourful time of the year.
Although 2016 marks my 10th anniversary of living in Britain, I haven’t given up to the stereotype of a Spanish holiday once, until this year. There was no specific reason I haven’t visited in the past, other than my interests gravitating more towards city breaks and a cultural variety of things to do versus the sun, sand and sea situation in which resting is the number one priority. I prefer walking tours, man made attractions and architecture. This year I had an opportunity to experience both of the destination types of Spain, the coast of Costa Blanca and the city of Madrid.
It’s time to endeavor out on another life’s adventure and start a new era of your life. How should you begin it and what are some things to keep in mind? Here are some tips I wish someone had told me before my time at university.
Choosing the right university for you
When it comes to choosing your home for the next three or four years, it’s important to consider the following: university and subject ranking, location, cost of living and student satisfaction. As my current uni (University of Surrey) is ranked as number one for my particular field of study, it was obvious it will land in my top five picks.
What I also paid a lot attention to however is the university accommodation and outdoors. Everybody desires to live in comfort and beautiful surroundings! The nature incorporated within the university grounds gave me space to chill out with friends and sometimes even study (I know, right!) but for the most part, it gave me a space where I could unwind and clear my mind.

For this day I have been waiting months. It almost felt like it was one of my friends (and not one of my role models) has published a book. What kind of book you may ask? A book that has the potential to transform lives through changing eating habits, inspiring to live a healthier, more active life, and giving a perspective on living differently. A vegan cookbook.

I found Niomi through the YouTube platform about three years ago, but it was only in the last two years that I took real interest and became a true follower. There is something different about Niomi. To me, Niomi became my role model not only because of her great and light-hearted personality, but also her values and strength she portrays. Positivity and a great attitude to life is what I truly admire in people. There is something comforting about her videos, something true that I can’t necessarily point my finger on. It’s the feeling of being home (as cheesy as it sounds). It’s the comfort of not being judged by your life choices (e.g. the way we eat) but instead being slowly guided towards a life that is fulfilling and true to yourself.
I must share with you my admiration for this product, I just do. Because, the fact that coconut oil is a miracle, is not subject to any doubt. If you are wondering about whether to implement a miracle in your life, I am sure that after reading this post, you will not even think twice about it.
Coconut oil has been visiting my house for a long time – I used it much earlier, before the outbreak of the fashion for “superfood.” But – I did not use it for culinary purposes, but only for cosmetic purposes. Yes, coconut oil is associated with the culinary part, and we forget how precious and sensational it can be as a cosmetic! I will write far too much about this too, so do not worry. 😉
Relationships are like a mirror, they show us what we need to learn.

Mimi Ikonn is an entrepreneur, YouTuber, and a passionate maniac of self-growth. Along with her husband, Alex Ikonn, she co-founded Luxy Hair and Intelligent Change (Five Minute Journal and Productivity Planner) and the Dreamers & Creators in London. To me, Mimi differentiates from the majority of famous public figures as she has relatively humble beginnings, yet has proven to create her own success and dream life.
After following Mimi and Alex for years, their new projects and products have always excited me and kept me alert for every one of their launches. When I first heard Mimi is writing a book, it was like she has finally heard me. Although watching her videos gave me a great deal of information, I always dreamt of having her advice on hand whenever I go. The Bingo Theory, being a book based on relationships, sounded like a perfect match as at the time I have been struggling with this aspect of my life.
