NEW YORK STORIES #22: DISCOVERING NEW YORK'S MURALS

7:24 PM I am from a city that is highly decorated with beautiful art. Many people who don't like graffiti feel offended or call my city ugly — I enjoy this beyond and I will never feel bad about it.
IT'S ART, PEOPLE!
I love walking pass my favorite sprayed walls, getting new inspiration or …

#TREATINGMYSELF: SUPERMOON BAKEHOUSE, NEW YORK

7:05 AM "Stay wild, moon child." Ahhh, I love myself a good marketing, but I love a great baking offer the most. Before my last trip to NYC, I wanted to explore so much, but one of my top things on my list was something fancy. I believe my usual eating style is pretty simple and yes, a bu…

DEAR RUNNING #4

8:33 PM Dear running, dear Africa. Today is a special running dedicated post! I always love to sum up how my training or recovery goes — simple stuff. Updating you or any running interested person, but this also feels like a diary!
It's always good to write down success or down moments to remem…

MY FIRST CLEAN-UP #FORTHEOCEANS

10:41 PM On my birthday in December I had one big wish: I wanted to do my first clean up action! We do not have an ocean here, but I live close by the lake and river, so I decided to head to our river which enjoys way too much human life. I grabbed my sister and two trash bags, one for each, to col…

#TREATINGMYSELF: HA CAT CAFE, NEW YORK - CLOSED

7:49 PM My love for China Town is huge, I'm mad serious! I already told you how much this place inspires me and what a great area it is to just enjoy some recreation walks while exploring their crazy food world.  This is actually how I found the place which I want to present today!
While I was …

NEW YORK STORIES #21: MY DEAREST VINTAGE STORE: L TRAIN

3:44 PM During my visit I wasn't really in the mood to shop much - I wanted to check out some vintage stores, just because it's more fun to shop vintage things in the Big Apple. I'm actually never in the mood to go, because since vintage stuff is getting more and more popular, the store…

NEW YORK STORIES #20: MORNING ROOFTOP YOGA - MY FAVORITES

3:43 PM I remember some years ago, before yoga got so goddamn popular, I was secretly hoping I would master this activity in a minute.  I read that it is perfect for runners and also it's not only about handstands and crazy figures - sometimes yoga feels like meditation and that's why I was…

CINNAMON NO RAISINS PLEASE BAGEL

8:19 AM New York ruined me in so many ways, haha. Considering food – this city is heaven on earth! As a kid I really enjoyed eating all the bad candy and junk food, while now, being more older and open to ANYTHING, I try to eat myself through the city as much as I can – there are no limits. One th…

ECO FRIENDLY TRAVELLING

5:21 PM The last months I was travelling a lot – Paris, New York, and now South Africa – different countries, different rules. While I am actually a really passive traveller, I became more conscious the last months when I visited different destinations. This might be because of the oceans and the p…

MORNING VS EVENING WORKOUTS

6:54 AM Today I want to discuss something which I always had on my mind, but I never did a research on it… Last year, when I trained for Paris, I had a strict running plan and I tried to work out as much as I could. When I was off from work, I had the freedom to plan my workouts throughout the day …

#TREATINGMYSELF: BY CHLOE., NYC

7:53 PM One thing I love the most about New York is its eating culture. Each time I am there, I am on the hunt for the best restaurants or bakeries where I can experience the latest food trends. I am not a sucker for trends, but if I hear good press about certain things, why shouldn’t I try it as w…

NEW MUSIC VIBES - MY CAPE TOWN PLAYLIST

10:33 PM Oh wow! More and more I am realizing that I will be leaving for South Africa really soon! Only a few more days! When it comes to travelling in general, I really enjoy the excitement and all the general planning that happens before I leave! Next to a lot of ahead planning (for the blog also

NEW YORK STORIES: TIME TO WAKE UP, SOHO.

2:23 PM Sitting on my desk, writing this post, reflecting on New York makes me somehow sad, but also happy. I am definitely excited to come back home soon, but when I am far away from it, I start to realize how strong my feelings towards this city are - actually a good feeling, no time to be sad. 

OFF COLOR BOOK CLUB: WHAT'S ON MY LIST FOR 2018
