Açai Bowl

Until very recently, I’ve never tasted or actually knew what açai (or acai) was. It’s in the palm tree family, originally from Central and South America, nowadays cultivated for its fruits and hearts of the palm. This antioxidant-rich fruit has been known as an immune-stimulating, energy boosting fruit, normally seen in smoothies or in a bowl, mixed with fruit and milk. It’s called a power food and proven to help you...

Improving Your Workwear

Sometimes I forget that I’m writing for a variety of people with a variety of routines and, since I work mostly from home – or a coffee shop – I don’t focus a lot on work appropriate attire.

Styling Your Bedside Table

If there’s one thing I’m always doing around the apartment is changing the decoration and accessories. Not necessarily buying new things, but re-arranging everything.
