The Summer Guide: Get the Looks, Moves and Explore Hong Kong's Best Beaches & Junks, by our very own Beach Babe

We all know the daily hustle can be exhausting and the worst part of it all, thinking about work after hours happens more often then we'd like to admit! Bringing too much work home can quickly get us down, make us anxious, sleep-deprived and just not someone fun to be around.

There’s nothing better than taking time to invest in yourself, show yourself some self-love and recharge on the weekends - especially during summertime! Here are some tips on

#livingmypurpose: Body Positivity & Embracing Strong Female Bodies

In conversation with Kate Telge & Ciara Williams, both fitness trainers in Bangkok, Thailand. We speak to them on their shared purpose of empowering women through health, fitness & wellness – to be grateful for our bodies and embrace what we have.

How to Meet Friends Through Fitness - Races, Marathons, Gyms

Running a marathon or race takes preparation. Planning is king because without it, you jeopardize any chances of performing at your full potential, and ultimately ending up disappointed. You may even take a step back and assess your life, sometimes revamping it completely because eating like crap, half-assing your training, and sleeping late isn’t akin to 'success'... All these lifestyle changes just for a couple of hours of running with a group of strangers (just as crazy and stupid

I’m sure most, if not all, of us have trouble with staying positive and being able to control how we react & feel in different situations.

I’ve spent nearly 3 years now on Instagram where I actively follow many inspiring people, and one thing that I was amazed by at the start was how positive some of them always seemed to be. Of course, social media is but a tiny portion of someone’s life - but at

The words in our heads, the words that we read, the words in the music we listen to, the words in the movies we watch, the words on the advertisements we see, the words that come out of our mouths, the words that we post on Facebook, the words on our Instagram posts, the words that we send to each other through email and Whatsapp
