Something that I could relate to

Came across this video through a friend, and I can really relate to Smrithi. People sometimes do not understand the struggle of children that have to try and balance more than one culture. Smrithi explains this really well. I know a lot of people can relate to this so thought I should share it with you! :)

Out and About|Suvlaki

Greek food has always been one of my favourite. When we used to live in Germany, our parents used to always treat us to a Gyros meal at the little Greek restaurant in Heinsberg. In fact, when we do go back to Germany now and then, we still go there! It has sort of become our little tradition.

Hence, my sister and I decided to give Suvlaki a go! Continue reading “Out and About|Suvlaki”

Out and About|Palm Vaults

Featured image: @barrancooo

On my birthday, my sister and I had brunch at Palm Vaults. The café is decorated in a very urban way. You can tell even before entering the café, that you aren’t entering your normal cafés like Costa or Starbucks. You will be surrounded with pastel decor and plants hanging beautifully from the ceiling. Oh and if you are a vegan, you will be spoiled for choice!

To begin, I had a Lavender Latte and toast with tomato, basil and pesto. My sister had a mushroom toastie.

Made of Flaws


Before I start, I would like to make this clear. I am fully aware that this post might receive mixed responses, but I am prepared for it and this is purely just based on my experiences…

N.B. Most of this was written two years ago.


As long as I’ve known, I’ve always been bigger than the average person around my age. Between the ages of 8-18, I was a bit chubby, but health wise,  I became overweight as soon as I hit 19. I don’t know about other people’s experiences, but being the size I was and am, didn’t and isn’t exactly something that makes me happy. And just to make it clear… it’s not because I thought I was fat or I am self conscious because I hate the way I look. People never really gave me the chance to even make my own opinion about the way I looked and still look. I get people pointing it out to me straight away and all the time. When I mean all the time. Literally, whenever I go somewhere with my family.

Food Diary


This year so far, I have not been going regularly to the gym. I have been ill and only trained whenever I felt fit enough for it. But it is now time to get back to training properly again.

Even if you are not able to train straight away, the best way to start being healthy is by eating the right food. I try to plan ahead, which makes shopping easier and cheaper.

So to make things easier for you, I have made a Food Diary printable for you!

New Year’s Resolutions 2017


It’s that time of the year again! Like most people, I once again am going to come up with a few resolutions that I will stick to at least until the end of 2017.

This time last year, I did not actually come up with any resolutions. I was not in a state to. I came up with my resolutions for the year of 2016 a bit later on. Next to it you can see how I’m carrying on with the same ones. Except this time, the resolutions are a bit more achievable. Continue reading “New Year’s Resolutions 2017”

2nd December 2016


I have been so bad with keeping my blog updated and I would like to first of all apologise for it. However, I’ve got some good news for you! I have made sure that I will definitely be able to keep you posted as planned from now on!!!

Anyway… So you know how I said I am going to follow my routine religiously… That did not happen. I just had too much stuff to handle and too stressed out.

I quit my second job. Yes… I worked seven days a week. I was crazy. Don’t know what I was thinking. I did not sleep well and put on weight and lost weight dramatically. Not good. Also the reason why I couldn’t blog!

Finally got some sense and started to think about myself from now on.

Bought myself a new toy – The Fitbit Charge 2 :D

Hopefully it will help me stay on track!

How do you track your fitness? Does it help? Comment below :)

My Weight Loss Journey


Today I’m going to talk about something that I’ve never been able to speak about confidently before. Those of you who know me personally, already know that I started my weight loss journey at the beginning of the year, in March to be specific. Have I achieved my goal weight yet? Nope. But one thing that I have come to the realisation about, is that I am most definitely not the only person who struggles with weight loss.

To put it bluntly, I was obese. At the beginning of my journey, I went to the gym about six times per week and ate three times a day. I made sure that half of my plate was filled with veg, quarter of it with protein and the other quarter with carbs. Continue reading “My Weight Loss Journey”
