UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson spoke at the launch of UN Women’s He for She campaign, aimed at expanding the network of male allies to work with women and girls to bring about equality of the sexes. It seeks to kickstart a global solidarity campaign, beginning with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The “Harry Potter girl” seeks to mobilize one billion men and boys over the next 12 months as advocates and agents of change for gender equality.

topic: stop the cold – tea

ChanterellesHey guys! Last day in London for little over a week – I’m off to Stockholm tomorrow and return on the 4th of October. I’m going home to hang out with family (and eat chanterelle toast). However, this morning, for the first time in like 6 months, I woke up with a slightly sore throat. I think being on holiday and not eating right and drinking loads the last couple of months has taken its toll on my body – its saying NO.

So I’m home today, drinking a homemade ‘stop the cold’ tea – Hot water with 2 spoons of honey, two spoons of lemon juice, a dash of vinegar, cinnamon and ginger. Not too bad actually! Topping it up with awesome whole food nutrition capsules and big healthy smoothies.

Good Morning! I’ve been up since like 6.30 this morning – when Matthew started to prepare for his 200Km ride today. He was gone by 7.30. So I’ve been eating honey toast in bed, I’ve finished my painting which is being delivered to a girl in Stockholm end of this week (Behind me), and I’ve started on some new sketches. I think my day at Tate Modern yesterday checking out Kazimir Malevich inspired me.

I’m about to get ready and head down to Clapham and Tess’s place where we are going to have brunch and chill all day. Later I might meet a friend from school and go to a gallery opening.

Because my whole weekend was spent having fun on Tess’s Hen Do. Myself and her closest friends + sisters surprised her on Friday with lots of champagne, balloons and amazing food. We even had my friend Rosamund, who is a professional champagne taster in to make it extra special – Tess LOVE her bubbles.

But today is being spent drinking green smoothies, hot water teas and studying in bed. Might even have an afternoon snooze. It’s grey outside. So a perfect day to stay inside.

I’m sitting outside on the stairs to the garden and the sun is about to set. The mountain in front of me is coloured soft red and the sky is baby blue. These beautiful pink flowers keeping falling around my feet. Maybe fall is coming here, even though it is still 25 degrees outside at 8 in the evening. I can hear the crickets and birds singing lullabies and exotic spiders emerge in the bushes. I have worked on my spider fear while being here. I told myself that as long as they stay outside in their net I wont harm it as it is not harming me. I can hear the buzz from a bumble bee above my head drinking the last drops of the day of the remaining pink flowers before they close up. I can see the faded horizon of the sea if I stand up. The air smell of warm pine and I smell of salt water. My legs are brown and my tummy soft. My hair is blonder after countless days of sunshine. I say sorry each time I kill a little ant, but they are all over, eating my food. The skin on my nose is stained with freckles and I got a spot which allows me to have a third eye for a few days. My hands are washed and my heart filled with love. For myself, my life and everyone in it.

My love left this morning. Is he not the most handsome man ever, shirtless and all!? He is the best. We have since our friends left earlier last week, played Yatzy in the shade, we have had awesome lunches and fantastic dinners at the house and in small restaurants on the island. We have danced, and dived in to the pool and we have laughed, hugged and kissed. We have read books, chilling, watching the moon shine over the mountain top and just listened to the calmness of paradise…

2014-09-03 19.35.03-1But I’m also looking forward to some ‘me’ time for a few days. I will eat well, sleep well, study, read my book, write my first words on my dissertation and I’ll work on my tan (responsibly).  All this until grandma comes and joins me on Wednesday! Then I’m here with her until Friday.

my style: relax 100%

Our friends have left this paradise leaving me and Matthew alone. Today we have done absolutely nothing but fall asleep in the shade, read our books and dive into the pool when it gets too hot. Tonight we’re going to our local small village for some drinks and live music.

Time to shower the salt of my body and put on a floaty dress. Then a glass of wine and cheeseboard before we’re off!

Today is just too hot to do anything but laying next to or be in the pool, with shadow breaks playing Yatzy on the veranda. We do it the Spanish way today and will go down to the beach around 4-5pm when it is not as hot.

Here are some more go pro moments I captured yesterday when we all went down to our secret favourite restaurant with its very own beach.
