How Christian Louboutin vacations Portugal

I came across this article again even though it was written last September, but I thought I’d post it here since it combines my favourite shoe designer and my favourite destination. ¬†Although I am Canadian, my parents are Portuguese and the love for my culture runs through my blood. ¬†Travelling to Portugal since childhood, I’ve grown to appreciate the rich scenery and historic nature of the lands. ¬†From north to south, you see exactly what you expect to see in Europe. ¬†Unfiltered beauty, cobbled stone streets, historical churches and buildings. ¬†I will be in Porto this month and will surely make a stop in the Alentejo to experience the beauty Mr. Louboutin himself describes so perfectly. ¬†Read article here

5 Benefits of Watermelon

I’ve always loved watermelon. Practically watermelon everything from candy, gum, juice etc… I used to work in a corporate office where one of my coworkers ate watermelon for breakfast, lunch and a midday snack. ¬†I noticed that she’d do this starting in May and all throughout the summer. ¬†I asked her why the watermelon overdose and she replied, “how do you think I stay so skinny?”. ¬†Okay, I was sold, but I never took it to the extreme as she did. ¬†Even if i wanted to, I don’t think I could, I need substance. ¬†So I compromised. I would try to eat it at least once a day. ¬†Now, whenever summer is about to roll in, I eat and drink more watermelon. ¬†It’s not only delicious and yummy, it’s also super good for you. ¬† See the 5 reasons why:
1. It is the ideal drink to lose weight due to its low calories.

2. Watermelon is composed of about 90% water and contains vitamins A and C , as well as calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. 

3. It is the  perfect antioxidant : it is natural, it eliminates toxins and strengthens the immune system.

4. After doing physical exercise, it is a great option for re-hydration of the body .

5. Better yet, it helps keep your skin tanned longer .
