If you’re already tired of leading a hectic life the majority of people are struggling with, welcome to the club! We understand your troubles, and if you would like to know how to deal with them properly, stay with us. Planning on a perfect holistic vacation is exactly what you need – some specialized retreats will help you bring your life in balance. The combination of physical activity, proper diet, and enjoying your own peace will surely help you manage that. Here are five useful tips that’ll help you do it.


Consider timing

While planning on a perfect holistic vacation, the first thing you should bear in mind is certainly timing. This is particularly important if you want to save some money, because off-peak times are much cheaper. Besides that, these are less crowded, too, which is one more advantage. If you tend to carefully plan and organise your activities months in advance, this can save you even more cash!


Give yourself a break


No matter if you’re an experienced yoga enthusiast, or just a beginner in this Hindu practice, it’s essential that you give yourself a break. Don’t be too ambitious and plan on visiting several retreats one after another – that will exhaust you and prevent you from relaxing and having a good time. Instead, choose the one that perfectly suits your needs and have the time of your life! In fact, it’s all about having fun. If your instructors are having a blast, you’ll have it, too! Apart from yoga, you can always choose some other activities, such as surfing, cooking, biking, etc., depending on what your retreat offers. You’ll inevitably spend some quality time there!


Go in groups

The rule says that it’s much cheaper to travel in groups than all by yourself, so take advantage of that and keep the money in your pocket. The group you’re travelling with doesn’t have to be that big – three people are just fine. You can even travel only with your best yoga buddy – that may cut your expenses by half! However, in case you don’t have a travelling companion, you should consider booking a double room. It’s much cheaper than a single-bed room, while there’s always a chance of getting a great random roommate who shares the same passion – yoga and holistic vacations!


Eat well – live well


Even though many people tend to go wild when it comes to food and drink while on vacation, the truth is that holistic retreats don’t advocate overeating and overdrinking. Everything is about balance – eating healthy in combination with exercising will bring you peace sooner than you probably hoped for. Don’t worry, if you weren’t aware of that fact, you’ll learn it very soon. Embracing healthy eating habits is one more step towards healthier life, which is even more enhanced with practicing yoga or any other kind of physical activity.


Ditch the smartphone

While nourishing your body and soul in a holistic retreat, your smartphone should be far from your reach. The reason is fairly simple – you don’t need the pressure of an e-mail pileup while being on your perfect vacation! The only thing you need your smartphone for is to order gorgeous swimwear online – you’ll need some stunning bikinis while staying there, so put your phone to a good use and get some fashionable pieces at affordable prices!


As you can see, planning on a perfect holistic vacation is not as tricky as you probably thought. All you have to do is to bear in mind your personal interests and preferences, because fulfilling your needs should be your top priority. After all, it’s a holistic vacation you’re planning on, and it definitely includes relaxing and dealing with the spiritual side of your personality.

giving sick the stick Autumun self care



Hello healthy people! So I came up with a short list on how I take care of my health during this autumn weather! I am committed to be healthy, and so should you! Cause preventing illness is my number one priority! Here is my autumn care.

  1. I start my morning with this healthy mixture, following it with a cup of water. The mixture contains ( 1 teaspoon of Honey + 1 teaspoon of cinnamon). I experimented its effectiveness by starting it when I had sinusitis, and after eating this mixture for 3 days It started to flush the inflammation. After 1 week, It flushed the inflammation completely. I really felt more than fine, and pain free. This mixture also help as an immunity booster. Do you need an immunity booster! Why don’t you try this out?

Besides, It has Cinnamon which is the most delicious and healthiest spice on earth! And the fact that it is mixed with Honey makes it a powerful (anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory) potion fights internal or external infections. Cinnamon has an effective anti-bacterial property, known for the (Polyphenols),(Cinamaldehyde) the effective compound in the cinnamon. See Cinnamon lip scrub for more usage of this mixture.



2. Hair breakage is a major problem, especially if you have a dry or thick hair! So in a weekly basis I use OGX ever straight Brazilian keratin Serum. It doesn’t only work its job of keeping breakage away! It also smells amazing like caramel!


3. Drinking something warm after long, exhausting day is my favorite thing, and I don’t mean tea! I love preparing oat soup the day before, cause I know I will be nourishing my body with it. I also drink some in lazy nights, and If I skip dinner, I won’t feel guilty or hungry either! -Let me know if you want my recipe for this oat soup-


4. Keeping a good moisturizer in reach is essential. Busy days will make you skip your caring routine, but skin is so prone in cold weather. Dryness contribute in skin aging, and weaken its integrity which makes it vulnerable to eczema or infection. I keep a moisturizer in my bag, on my night table, and another in my pockets!!



5. Your favorite tea: Autumn and winter is all about your hot cup of tea! isn’t it? Herbal tea particularly. My favorite tea is ginger and lemon! Powerful if there is a germ are incubating inside my body!



6. Healthy Snacks:

I always recommend having nuts or dried fruits as snack! But how about mixing it all together!! These bars are on of the most delicious snack that I make sure to eat! You can buy dried fruits from your local farmers market, because why not!?


What do you do to keep yourself healthy in Autumn??

Bootea review 28Days teatox journey guide


This Summer vacation was a bit long, and disappointing, exactly like the start of 2016. I didn’t comply to my fitness plan during the past 3 months. I would do jogging 2 times a week. Maximum 3 times. And to be honest, it’s not the kind of workout that really works for me.

I pretty much broke out every eating rule, too. It was so much fun though, being adventurous with food this summer. But I had to stop being disgraceful to my body. Since I had 6 weeks to kick start before my fall semester. I thought of doing a detox, and lose some of the weight I carried throughout this summer.

This post isn’t sponsored. All opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. 


I have tried a mini Detox (14 Days) from an American Company 2 years ago. But My friend Stephanie from Bunnychoice Blog suggested Bootea, and I kinda wanted to try it for sometime! The delivery was quick in 5 days for a worldwide shipping. So that was a Pro! It arrived as this cute Box, and let me take a moment to appreciate how much I love this shade of green and pink.


The 28 Days Teatox contains, 28 bags of Daytime tea, 14 bags of nighttime tea, meal plan.

I am not going to review the meal plan, because I didn’t really need it, and it is kind of stuff you pay for.





Why I Started This Detox by Bootea teatox: Reasons for you to do so

  • Clear my skin from some acne, and enhance its radiant and illumination.
  • Lose some weight
  • Set my body in a healthy mode, AGAIN

How does Teatox work?

In general, Detoxing Tea works up in 2 ways. . If you want just a detox you have to focus on a healthy  food.  If you want to lose weight, you have to focus on working out with ahealthy food But detox doesn’t work if you still consuming junk food, and following unhealthy lifestyle.

Summery of Bootea Teatox:

You have to plan 28 days of healthy meals. Start Night time Bootea Teatox at night, count it the first. The following day drink Day time Bootea Teatox. Night time tea is for every other night. Day time tea is for every day, preferably in the morning.

This is how tea should look like! I enjoyed writing notes to myself!





The water however, shouldn’t be fully boiled. BUT nearly boiled, or else it will be burned! When you burn your tea, It should look like this. And it tastes like a burned mint! Tea doesn’t lose its effectiveness if it is burned, but is better if you are careful with it, so you get full efficiency.



What Happened to me When I Drank it?

First morning after Night time tea, I had a gigantic cramps for few minutes I almost felt like I am giving birth! But few days later cramps were minor, then no cramps. I had a small headache the following day, as a result from coffee withdrawal, and I don’t recommend drinking coffee during your detox days and I didn’t drink coffee too! I usually have throbbing headache if I didn’t drink coffee, but the tea helped me with it! The second day I didn’t had any headache at all!! After 2 weeks the laxative effects was less (from night time tea), almost diminished in the 4th week.


Fitness Tip:
  • The Tea isn’t a magical tea, that burn fat by itself. You should work for it.
  • I recommend 45 minutes of jogging, or fast walking + 15 minutes of cardio. For 4-5 days a week.
  • Do dirty workout! The one that makes you sweat your ass out.
  • Once your stomach started to be cold, that’s mean you sat your body in burning fat mood. I noticed that tea enhance this trick! This cool sensation will stop after you finish your workout, but when you shower with a warm water, you’ll be able to feel it.


Food Tip:
  • Don’t eat food that will produce gas like onion, cabbage, beans.
  • I can eliminate dairy product as you might need them, but if you can replace them with almond milk, cocunut milk, calcium supplements, that would be better.
Overall & Results:
  • It motivated me to lose weight , and to eat healthy as I usually do.
  • I lost 5kg , and I am one size smaller.
  • It tastes like herbs, not sour, just neutral herb majority wouldn’t find it difficult to drink it.
  • My skin is amazingly soft and smooth.
  • It really helped to remove the double chin!!
