Geneva really is the city that has it all. And I know that’s perhaps a rather bold statement to make, but following three days there earlier this month – I can safely say, it’s risen right to the top of my recommended city breaks list, because whether it’s gorgeous scenery, waterside dining, cocktails on the beach, boat trips, chocolate tours, fine dining, mountainous landscapes, hiking, shopping, culture or relaxation that you’re searching for in a break, this is the destination that ticks ALL the boxes.
I visited in association with Geneva Tourism in early September, for a long weekend stay with a group of girls. We had the most fabulous weekend and experienced all of the elements while we were there – blazing sunshine, clouded mist and a little bit of drizzle, however we soon discovered that whatever the weather, it’s a gorgeous city with a lot to offer.
After watching a rather hard-hitting documentary about our planet (and what we’ve put it through as of late) a couple of months ago, I’ve been looking into ways that I can reduce my own ‘foot-print’ on the planet.
From what I garnered from the film, we all contribute and are equally responsible for the overall safety and security of our planet and so we can all do our bit in helping to keep our planet healthy and to give it a long-lasting future.
As cliché as the saying goes, every little bit, does help.
I’ve been very vocal about my various health issues over the years, ranging from digestive troubles, to hair loss, to skin redness and anxiety. I feel incredibly lucky that I’ve had the opportunity to try a number of different treatments, through my blog, that I wouldn’t have otherwise heard of, in a bid to find the best solutions for this issues – and report my honest findings back to you guys.
I’ve had hypnotherapy, I’ve had consultations with expert dermatologists in London, I’ve had massage therapy (quite literally a talking therapy session while you’re having a massage, which was interesting to say the least), I’ve had laser treatments, I’ve had allergy tests. I’ve been on yoga retreats. Tried sound healing. And the things I haven’t always expected to help, have helped.
The living room in our new house is more of a ‘formal’ living room, as we have an open plan kitchen/diner/living space at the back of the house where our old sofa now resides.
So we practically started from scratch in this room – we had no furniture for it whatsoever – just four rather sad and blank looking walls to work with.
