Hacienda Barrigona has so far been the most luxury hotel we visited in Costa Rica. It’s situated in the Guanacaste province in the Nicoya Peninsula, less than an hour drive from the cities of Samara and Nosara. How do I define luxury? Privacy, limited wifi, breathtaking setting, and kind people.
This year The Body Shop celebrates 25 years of Community Trade partnership with Tungteiya Women’s Association which covers its Shea butter needs. Over the years, the Association grew from 50 to more than 600 women from 11 communities near Tamale, Northern part of Ghana.
In addition to fair and regular wage, The Body Shop pays into a Premium fund which is managed by the women through Northern Ghana Community Action Fund (NOGCAF). The premium is transparently and democratically invested in community projects (schools, access to health centers and clean water, sanitation, a building to stare shea nuts, etc.). It has positively impacted the lives of 49,000 people.

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.
I am super happy to share with you our exclusive interview with Bastian Baker. Bastian is a famous Swiss singer who is funny, smart, handsome and still very down-to-earth. We interviewed him at his family home and got the opportunity to meet his parents who are also very nice people. He just finished his new album “Bastian Baker” which got great reviews. We talked about his World Tour with Shania Twain, tips to achieve success, his health routine (watch out-he loves burgers!) and his new album.
