Recipe: Probiotic Chia & Quinoa Pudding

Hello & Hallo,

You might have seen all those new vegan probiotic drinks popping-up in supermarkets recently. A lot of them are super-delicious & taste more like desert than anything else. This made me think how else can I use them rather than just knocking them back.

Entrance – Chia Pudding!

Reformer Pilates at Heartcore — Torture or Treat?

Hello & Hallo,

Heatcore Moorgate

Heatcore Moorgate

I like pilates but it is not my favourite class. I tend to find it a bit boring & not intense enough. But that is mat pilates! …what about its tougher sister: reformer pilates?!

I have tried this at several studios now & let me tell you: IT. IS. HARD.

See what I think….

Yoga Teacher Training London: My Research

Hello & Hallo,

I love yoga! I just do! I love to go to classes – by myself or with friends (weekend yoga & brunch is the best, right?!). I bore my friends & family talking about yoga. I read about yoga. You get the gist 😄

There are hundreds of studios & providers offering Yoga Teacher Trainings and various different formats & length – intensive for a few weeks, over a few month or even years.

London in 2 1/2 Days

Hello & Hallo,

A few weeks ago my dad visited me in London for the very first time. Not just his first time visiting me in my new home but coming to London at all.

As he had never been to London we covered all the tourist attractions possible. But I also showed my dad what I love about London. He was only here from Thursday night to Sunday afternoon – a short stay! …I tried to cover as much of this amazing city as possible!

Day 1

The Morning at Borough Market: Borough Market has a great atmosphere & there is so much to see & smell. We spend a a while wondering around here taking it all in. This was the highlight for my dad!
