Portes Mykonos

When I landed in Athens at the end of August, I knew I would spend a few days in the capital city to see my family and friends. But for the rest of my time there, I had no plans on where to go. All I knew was that August wasn’t exactly how I would have liked it to be. But then again, there is nobody to blame for this. It’s me who decided to go on vacation in September instead of August…but I have a bunch of good reasons for it.

Portes Mykonos

The perfect picture island

My initial thought was to visit Spetses and Hydra. But then somehow I remembered how much I miss the Cycladic white washed houses, so Mykonos won. It is after all the perfect picture island, and I knew I would never get bored. Apart from that, last year when I visited the island, I left with a feeling that 3 nights were not enough and made up my mind to come back soon again.

This year I stayed at Portes Mykonos Suites and Villas. Portes Mykonos had exactly what I expect to find in any hotel: exclusivity and privacy, along with a sense of peace and serenity. I especially loved the people working there who became my friends, room with walls all made of glass which served as the reception, late afternoon light, and amazing interior and exterior designs that reminded me of Dior Cruise fashion show in LA. What else do you need for the perfect holidays? Hope you get the chance to experience this beautiful property yourself.

Let’s be honest: I wouldn’t consider myself the sportiest person in the world and I totally dislike going to the gym. On the other hand, I like to look and feel good with my body and skin. Therefore some action is needed.

I remember exactly one year ago, on the first of September 2016, I moved to Vienna’s 13th district of Vienna. I had some extra kilos that I had to get rid of. Residents of the 13th district, including myself, are lucky to have Schönbrunn gardens in the proximity.

I decided to take advantage of it and go running as much as possible, as often as possible. In order to stay motivated, I bought a new sporty outfit and I downloaded an app which tracks my daily steps and reminds me to be more active. The best hour for me to go running was during  sunset time. Approximately 2 hours before the park closes.

Be more active”! That is exactly what I say to myself every morning.

The idea behind this visual story is to share with you a little bit of this activity and hopefully to inspire you to be more active too. The last time I went running, Vichy came up with the idea to provide me with their Mineralizing Thermal Water to try out. Using it on my sweaty skin after running up and down the Schonbrunn gardens was tremendously refreshing!

This face mist is powered by15 essential minerals (and not just some plain water that you can get from the tap of your kitchen). Apart from the refreshing feeling, it moisturize your skin and give you a glowy look.

Apart from using it while jogging, you can also use it in the morning after cleaning your face, and before you apply the Slow Age facial cream. Or you can take it with you and keep it on your office desk for when you need that refreshing vibrant glow.

For travelers, don’t leave home without it. The spray bottle comes in a convenient travel size (available with 50ml) which is airplane appropriate and it works nicely for jogging as well, since nobody likes to carry many things while running, right?

How I use it: I apply it on a cleansed skin and I spray it all over my face in a circular motion. Then either you can leave on for a few seconds and blot it with a tissue or just leave it to dry without blotting it.

The most important thing of all is to keep in mind that using Mineralizing Thermal Water is a natural solution for boosting skin quality. Focus on having a healthy base because this can make your make up look even better on your skin.
