Is Pilates The Way To Healthy Mind and Body?


Who hasn’t heard that Pilates is the sure way to improve your posture, tone your tummy and cure your back pain?

Before I met Paloma, founder of Paloma Gym, I found Pilates boring. I have been practicing power yoga for many years, and Pilates seemed too slow and without any effect. One of my dreams that never came true was to try Pilates on reformers. I never did because it’s just too expensive. At least in Switzerland. Thus, I continued with yoga hoping that one day I will discover a type of Pilates that will make my body work.

And the Christmas cookie marathon has started 🍪 I have made two types already and aim at four.
It’s hard when you work, run a blog and have a hyperactive two-year-old... if I were a good Czech wife, I would make at least 9 types of Christmas cookies (like my mother, sister, aunts and cousins) 🙀 but I just have different priorities🥳
Do you bake Christmas cookies? #christmascookies 📷 @alexanderramp

My computer stopped working and we spent the afternoon finding out whether it was the charging cord or the battery, Chloe-Sofia got fever (now sleeping like a baby after we gave her medicine) and my computer works again!

Strong and Voluminous Eyelashes for Christmas?


I want for Christmas are …. strong and voluminous eyelashes!

I have been using RevitaLash® Advanced eyelash serum for the last two months and as critical as I was, I have to admit that my eyelashes became longer and stronger.

“We are combining our award-winning favorites with some of the latest additions for irresistibly beautiful eyelashes or eyebrows.” Dr. Michael Brinkenhoff, CEO and founder of RevitaLash Cosmetics.

Has Body Positivity Gone Mainstream? Are You Ready To Love Your Body?


When I was growing up, body positivity and acceptance were no where to be seen. Women’s magazines were filled with models that all looked the same: Caucasian, skinny and bored. That was the standard of beauty in the 90s’ and I didn’t fit in. I began to believe that if I had to change myself to be happy. I ended up with an eating disorder, skin whitening cream, and acne breakouts.

Jump forward 25 years to meet Winnie Harlow or Ashley Graham in the cover of Vogue magazine.

Accepting yourself the way you are is one thing. Find your size and dress fashionably is another. That’s when Happy Size comes handy. This fashion label has been designing modern and stylish clothes for men and women of any size for twenty years. For this fall I picked these skinny black jeans and long-sleeve stripe t-shirt. Parisian chic that is not only stylish but comfortable and will look great with high boots and heels.

Do You Feel Too Small To Have An Impact?


I spend a lot of my time and energy on creating content. Whether it’s writing blog posts, editing videos and photos, connecting on social media or looking for the right place for a shooting. I learned that creativity helps me being present and feel meaningful. In the past, I wondered if I could really have an impact. Now, having an impact and feeling meaningful are sensitive terms. Pronounce it out loud and people will think that you don’t appreciate having a healthy child and an amazing husband. That’s not that at all.

I am talking about following my inner intuition and doing things for myself, not for other people. As women and mothers, we tend to forget about ourselves. We take care of others, we are soft. We put others first. And as amazing as it is, we also need to do things only for ourselves. Being it going for a walk, having a massage, reading a book, educating ourselves, exercising, learning skills that others may not find useful or going on a spiritual retreat.

If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try to go to bed with a mosquito in the room.
