Sādhanā

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Speaking of yoga and the year of self-care, today marks the 19th consecutive day of me doing yoga and I'm pretty psyched about it! (Here is a pat on the back).

Earlier this month, a couple of my friends and I joined in Adriene's 31 days of yoga revolution. Have you heard of it? It's a fun (and free) yoga program that you can do at home. It actually goes beyond just the poses and gives you the tools to explore your own body and mind - kind of like self discovery.

As hard as it was at first to make a habit of setting the alarm clock an hour earlier and committing to actually following each video to the T, by this morning I woke up looking forward to what's ahead...

So what actually made me decide to give this a go? It was Claire's video above entitled Sādhanā. The word itself has many translations, but in its simplest definition it means a personal daily practice where you connect with yourself on a very deep level. Watch it, maybe it will trigger something in you too and help you get more connected to your core-self...

P.S: Better than coffee.
P.P.S: Plus, yoga cityscapes.

Indian Elephants (in Knit Jumpers).

Monday, January 23, 2017




This is so sweet! Recently the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in the northern city of Mathura in India got a lovely surprise when a group of local women knit the most beautiful wool jumpers for all the rescued elephants. With the near-freezing temperatures at night, it’s the only way to keep those gentle giants toasty and comfortable:)

It warms my heart to know that there are still people who care…Isn't this lovely?

P.S: And this place + this :)
P.P.S: Remember those two?

Fashion Trend: Circle Bag










Do you own a circle bag?

Recently, after seeing how sassy they are, I finally caved in and treated myself to this oxblood number. Honestly, it was the best decision ever, since it fits all my clothes, makes my rather boring winter coat look somewhat stylish and it's actually super roomy too.

Now I'm thinking about scoring one of those bigger round straw beauties for summer. What do you think about circle bags: thumbs up or down?

P.S: If you're looking for something bigger and bolder, here is one that you might fancy.
P.P.S: Plus, this coat is a must...

If you desperately need easing into this cold Monday, brew yourself a cup of coffee, pull up those socks extra high, wrap yourself in a blanket and enjoy this beautifully calming photo series by Mihail Onaca. This brilliant Transylvanian photographer has an eye for capturing those tiny everyday (coffee and food) moments and making them look incredibly poetic. Ah...

P.S: Coffee mindfulness.
