3 Lazy Day Winter Office Outfit Ideas

Winter is in full swing, and isn’t stopping for anyone! Working in a professional office environment where a pair of joggers and a hoodie aren’t approved while having to wake up extremely early to catch our morning train can be tricky – especially when the air con isn’t working to our favour. But fear no more – here are my three favourite, quick-to-put-together outfits for those chilly days at the office.

The Danish Hygge – Copenhagen

Next on my list: Denmark. As you can probably tell, I am on a whim of ticking the beautiful region of Northern Europe off my list. For that reason, it was time to visit Denmark, the alluring country of eternal hygge and the most happy city in the world – Copenhagen.

Copenhagen – a place full of pastel-coloured streets, compact layout and hundreds of bikes on every corner, has greeted me in the most magical and freezing way possible.

5 Natural Beauty Alternatives To Swap For Today!

I have always been intrigued by how many cosmetic products women (and modern men) use on an everyday basis. It gave me some food for thought, because as much as we enjoy using them, it doesn’t always feel right to pack your skin with chemicals that don’t naturally occur in our bodies. For this reason I have been trying to incorporate products with more natural ingredients into my everyday routine and here are a few with which you can start your natural beauty journey today!

Hel yeah, Finland

Hel yeah Finland! I finally found you amongst Europe and enjoyed your beauty in full winter swing. Thank you for a great yet freezing and utterly magical time. Do you want to hear why I loved you so much?

First of all, lets realise you’re actually pretty big for the size of your population. There are only approximately five million people in an area of 330,000 km²! To add to that, there are over 180,000 lakes and over 2 million saunas in the country. Pretty impressive if you ask me, Finland! Continue reading

Oslo, Norge

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.

Hola, Madrid!

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.
