25 Reasons to Love Your Mom Like Nobody Else in the World

Happy Mother’s Day Peeps! To celebrate those lovely and unique beings, I wanted to share with you all something a little more unusual. I do not feel like there is a need of a specific day to celebrate my mother, but it still nice to be reminded to take her for granted. My mother is a warrior; she has been there since day one, and even though I literally, physically and mentally put her through hell since then, she never gave up on me and loved me so deeply I can’t even understand. She is the one who gave birth to me, who went through pain, horror, doubts and fear for me; she is the one who fed me, who taught me how to walk, who later taught me to believe in myself, who supported me and showed me that everyone is unique and that nobody is worth more than somebody else. She taught me that hard work pays, that ambition would lead me to do everything I wanted, that self-love is the essential and …

The Hidden Truths Behind “Beauty & the Beast” Enchanting Disney Story

I am speechless. Dazzled. Enchanted. Astonished. I am indeed a feminist, who loves fairy tales. And Emma Watson. I love the fantasy, plot and romance of those stories. Mixing all those ingredients together, it might end up being quite difficult to be fair and sincere while talking about feminism in Disney movies. I’ve heard so many things about how Beauty and the Beast was breaking away from the gender bias, removing what’s been a very delicate subject in the animated movies industry (talking about its daring sexual inclusivity here) as well as finally empowering its female heroine, that I was both excited and intrigued to see its premiere, just to verify my beliefs and the many rumours. After watching it, I admit going straight to bed, simply to keep the dream alive and find sleep on those enchanting tunes and wonderful pictures. The day after, trying to make a little research for this article, I came across things I’ve never thought I would come across. There was, among all the virtual ink that movie has …

Why the Smartness & Tenacity portrayed in “Hidden Figures” will empower you like Nothing before

I am going out of my comfort zone. Me who like to talk about food, yoga and wellness in general, I am trying to inspire you channelling other sensations within you. The heat of tenacity, strength, togetherness and activism. Do not only give me the benefit of the doubt, but try to reflect upon what’s following, trying to take as much as you can from it; simply so that you can be empowered, too. What comes in mind when thinking about historical movies focusing on brilliant minds, we can expect, as Lenika Cruz puts it in The Atlantic, “a tale of ego”. Films like The Theory of Everything or The Imitiation Game do talk about those scientists’ struggles as individuals, but frame their lives as inaccessible – a genius that we, people, cannot even fancy. Hidden Figures sets apart as it is not a film of ego, but of brilliance. It’s a story of tenacity, willpower, strength and struggle; even though there is a little glorification of those characters, there’s no such thing as individual …

8 Ways to Love 2016 & Make 2017 Glow (or any other year!)

I plead guilty for I have sinned. Well, if you consider not publishing anything for a month a sin! I indeed had to take some time off, away from social medias and from my digital world for several reasons. First, if you’ve been following me on my social medias, you might have understood that I’ve lost someone incredibly close to my heart. Therefore, as my holidays were kind of messy, full of unforeseen events, horribly sad moments, I did not have the heart to publish a thing. I felt like my entire being has been knocked down; I could feel my cells drained from all their energy. I tried to write from time to time, but what came out either where blank pages or dull lines of words, tasteless, emotionless. I believed it to be the right choice not to share anything with you all, as I really wanted to take time for myself as well as keep that place a universe of happiness. However, now that I am starting to feel myself again, I …

My Yoga Journey + Yoga Afternoon Events Reviews + Big Surprise Revealed!

I believe that if you’ve been following me for quite a while, you’ve noticed that I am not only fond of healthy food, nice details, expressive pictures (aka. perfectionism) and declaring my love for life, but also of the yoga world. It would not be easy to say how much it has brought me since the beginning; and to be honest, I would never have pictured me like so a few years from now. Before giving you crispy but only a few details on my yoga journey, as well as telling you about the events I threw and the big adventure I am about to start, let me just introduce it all to you with this. It took me days, months, and even years to come up with all these ideas and to have the courage to bring them to life. There’s no magic behind it, just a strong will, determination, passion and a hint of quirkiness. What I am about to tell you today might not appear to be that impressive (this is how …

Monday Motivation – 19th of September

« Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. » – Maya Angelou  I’ve been trying to read a little more for a couple of days. Creating recipes, writing articles, studying, practicing yoga and socializing do not leave that much space for another creative activity like reading. However, I know that I need that “literary brain food”, that sparkle of inspiration, these meaningful lines that usually make me fly away. Not only does it inspire me to bring a few changes now and then in my routine, but it really opens my mind and spirit to new ideas, discoveries and thoughts. Anyway, in one of my desperate attempts to take time and read a few lines, I came across Maya Angelou’s work and a few of her famous lines. Two of them really struck me; and this is one of them…
