Because the Finnish knows how to colour up your lives – Finnish brand Marimekko provides you not only with clothes for the body but with clothes for your home as well. The lifestyle brand has just shown its Spring/Summer 2014 collection during Copenhagen Fashion Week and opened its awaited store on the shopping street of the Danish capital last week, showcasing both garments and interior goods. Asymmetric stripes, endless flower prints and intense colour mixes ruled the catwalk at the Radhus for a moment – providing the brightest refreshment among the Scandinavian designers together with Moonspoon Saloon. I believe that a Marimekko piece is a must have in every woman’s wardrobe with an attitude to enhance a joyous life. No matter what the next season’s trend forecast is, Marimekko’s imagery always take the fun approach in terms of colours and shapes while predicting the idea of ‘always look on the bright side of life’ feeling.
We, at SilkSoFine – as you guys might have already noticed – stand for a healthy and fit lifestyle, of course with a little place for cheating to satisfy those sweet cravings once in a while…It’s not about having a few pounds less on the scale or crazy diving into diet fads and get slim and sleek as the fashion world dictates, rather just finding the great balance in life. Living healthy is a lifestyle, which you choose, not tomorrow, but today. Thanks to our ever-developing-world you find gyms on every second corner, proper running shoes, personal-trainers and so much more, but as we highlighted earlier, health is much depending on the eating habits. We make small failures, which can easily be avoided just by incorporating simple good-to-know tips in the kitchen such as:
1. Forget the potato-meat match by replacing the carbs with fresh or steamed vegetables. Keep the carbs for the morning and start your day with whole fruits, freshly-squeezed juices and whole grain bread/muesli instead. If you crave sweets, morning is the best time to sin.
2. Incorporate organic and fresh ingredients. Shop at a natural food store or buy food from your local farmer’s market, or what’s better, pick some from the garden (cheaper and not time-consuming at all).
3. Physical activity is a key factor in weight control and good long-term health. It is as important as a good diet and good sleep. Think about simple thing just as walking instead of taking the tube.
4. Avoid excessive smoking and alcohol intake…If you go for cocktails, avoid the creamy ones.
5. If you crave sweets, replace ice-cream with homemade smoothies, cakes with fruit-salads and low-fat yoghurt, bonbons with quality dark-chocolate.
These are just a few cliches from us with love, but the more you read it, the more likely you give a heed to the words. And remember, there is ALWAYS a healthy option!
Wir bei SilkSoFine stehen für einen gesunden und fitten Lifestyle – wie ihr vielleicht schon festgestellt habt – natürlich mit Platz für die eine oder andere kleine Schummelei, um den süßen Hunger auch mal zu befriedigen… (more…)
I might be a little late with this post as I just missed giving you weekend tips lunch-wise, but lets keep them on mind until the next one. As we were recently providing you with spring body-shaping tips, it turned out that actually only 30% of the magic happens in the gym and the rest is in the kitchen. Since most of us is usually lacking time, it’s important to learn some easily manageable dishes with the usage of such ingredients as veggies, fruits, proteins, olive oil and seeds. Also it’s good to watch how to combine the different ingredients for the sake of getting enough of vitamins, protein, iron and to cover our daily needs. What could make cooking more fun is to buy stylish plates and cutleries – I prefer big spacious plates, which has some space to stylishly arrange the portions of food – also try to experiment with different spices, and switch ideas with your friends. To deal with a bit rough, yet true cliche, don’t forget: ‘You are what you eat!’
Es könnte sein, dass ich etwas spät dran bin mit diesem Post, da ich es genau verpasst habe, euch Tipps fürs Wochenende zu geben was das Mittagessen angeht, aber wir können sie ja im Gedächtnis behalten bis zum nächsten. (more…)
I have recently visited Malta twice, the breathtakingly beautiful turist resort, in the heart of the Mediterranean. With its not even half million inhabitants, Malta is also one of the most densely populated countries worldwide. Besides the welcoming nation, having English next to Maltese as the official language makes it much easier for the tourists to communicate. No surprises, Malta has a very busy sea traffic, which is also a great opportunity for the tourists to visit the neighbour islands, such as the most popular natural attraction, the Blue Lagoon on Comino Island, Gozo, or the 80 kms far Sicily. Malta’s capital, Valletta, is known from it’s historical buildings, narrow streets, cosy restaurants serving traditional Maltese dishes.
SilkSoFine Tips: the sea is very salty, the air is very humid, and it is always scorching hot, so your beauty package better includes hair conditioner, sun lotion SPF 30+. Sunshade, sunglasses and light clothing are a must!
Ich habe Malta kürzlich zwei Mal besucht, den atemberaubend schönen Erholungsort im Herzen des Mittelmeers. Mit seinen nicht einmal einer halben Million Einwohnern ist Malta eines der Länder mit der höchsten Bevölkerungsdichte weltweit. (more…)
