#boyfriend tag – How Well Do You Know Your Partner?

CATEGORY: LIFESTYLE

Have you ever tried a couple’s quiz such as #bozfriend tag? I have to say it’s more fun than I expected. And the bonus – you get to know your partner better.

I am curious to see your reactions. I will post one video every week to see if it helps me foster new conversations, create new bonds, and reach more people.

P.S: Next time, Alex and I will try to #Meet My Husband quiz since it may be even more fun than the #boyfriend tag.

2019 @artbasel with @laprairie exceeded my expectations. Besides learning about La Prairie’s novelties, we had a guided tour through the Unlimited Sector of Art Basel - it makes a huge difference when someone brings you closer to the artist and for the first time I could fully appreciate what the artists were trying to communicate. 📷 @alexanderramp

“The Sun” by Ugo Rondinone....

Is there a quote that you live by? Since I cut my hair, many people asked me why I did it, whether I am OK or going through some middle life crisis. Well, this quote sums up how I currently feel about the “short, natural hair” question: ••• “You don’t have to defend or explain your decisions to anyone. It’s your life. Live it without apologies.”••• 🌈 #quotestoliveby 📷@alexanderramp

Happy Wednesday, everyone! The sun is finally out, the weekend is near and I just can’t wait to rest and go to @artbasel on Friday! Do you have any special plans fpr this weekend? 🌈 #artbasel #happytime | @skechers_schweiz

Have you ever tried a couple quiz? In this #boyfriendtag video I’m asking Alex (and vice versa) questions that made us both laugh out loud. Click the link in bio to laugh with us 😆 #relationships #lol

How often do you disconnect from social media?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I spent the last three days with my childhood friend and her daughter and as she is not on Instagram, I decided to live Instagram-free while she was here.
It was hard not to be checking constantly what other people are doing but after 24 hours, I practically forgot about the need to be constantly connected. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We had a great time time reminiscing about our childhood friends, Facebook stalking our exes and exchanging mom tips. And to be honest, as much as I like Instagram, I realized that it distracts me from making videos and writing blog posts. That being said, I will connect and keep following people that inspire me but if I want to keep creating meaningful content, I have to stay focused. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I am super excited for tomorrow since my girlfriend (which I know for 35 yrs!) will come with her daughter to stay with us for 4 days. I am curious to see how Chloe-Sofia will react and if she is open to sharing her toys. One thing I know for sure - she will not want to share her “Pappi.” 👶

I am super excited for...

I am not Muslim but I was pleased to discover that the management of Chloe-Sofia’s daycare acknowledged Eid Al-Fitr and even our office gave us a day off (even though Muslims represent a minority at our office) made me feel happy that I live in a country that is inclusive to all religions. So Eid Mubarak to all of you who celebrate today!

I gave myself permission not to work tonight and go for dinner with my girlfriends. Why? Because I have just recorded my first vlog (coming soon) where I talk about 5 types of people you need in your life in order to be happy... and friends are one of them. So in order to practice what I preach, I am treating myself to a 🍸 and a #girlchat. #selfcare

On Wednesday we celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary and although it may seem as not much, let me rephrase it: •
When Alex and I met, we were both divorced and happily single. I was actually quite critical about “all men” and thanks to Alex’s patience I changed my mind. •
The other day a friend asked us about marriage and whether it changes things in comparison to “just dating.” •
For us, it made sense to get married since we believe in the institution of marriage. But it’s not for everyone, it’s not compulsory, and one should know very well if he/ she wants to do it. •
Our marriage works because we talk A LOT. When I get angry, Alex pushes me to talk about it and reflect on what I said which is so hard... hard for my ego, which is why I dare to say that marriage is about working on yourself, learning to compromise, letting go and having a common purpose. Marriage is hard not because you are supposed to be faithful - that comes naturally when you’re married to the right person. Marriage is about non judgment, being best-friends, companions and cheerleaders. It’s about allowing the other to grow and be fulfilled. I think that marriage IS amazing because it’s like an every day mindfulness practice. 🌈 •

What The Heck Does Marriage Have to Do With It?

Marriage is hard work not because you are supposed to be faithful – that comes naturally when you’re married to the right person.

Empowering Waste Pickers Through Community Trade Recycled Plastic

CATEGORY: LIFESTYLE

In May 2019, The Body Shop launched its new Community Trade programme “Community Trade Recycled Plastic” which aims to improve the livelihood of informal waste workers in Bangalore, India. By the end of this year, The Body Shop will buy two hundred and fifty tons of waste PET plastic and recycle it into its haircare bottles (starting with the Shea shampoo).

The fact that the Shea shampoo is the first product that’s packaged in Community Trade recycled plastic feels like coming full circle. It symbolizes two sets of women from different cultures and continents who work hard to create a better livelihood for themselves, their families, and the whole community.

Does Instagram Make You Feel Like a Loser?

CATEGORY: LIFESTYLE

If your answer is yes, then you should take an Instagram break and listen to an episode from Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations with Devon Franklin. I am going to be honest, in the last few months, I have felt anger and disappointment towards social media.

Why?

Because every time I was on Instagram, I felt like a loser. Seeing other people’s perfect lives and polished photos made me feel inferior. One day, though, I looked at the whole “issue” differently – are those people happy? Is their marriage working? And more importantly, I asked myself why I kept following people that made me feel so bad.
