I’m so tired today and struggling to get motivated, I’m not sure why as I slept plenty last night. I guess it’s just one of those days. Since forever I have been a hardcore coffee lover both the taste and the energy kick have me hooked but I’m always looking for a healthier alternative so as to cut down on the amount I drink. My quest for self improvement runs from health & nutrition through to fitness with a heightened level of spirituality. It’s not that I’m unhappy with myself I just believe there is always room for improvement and we should never stay in a position of being too comfortable. If you’re a regular reader here you will know that I’m currently testing out the many cool and independent brands in Germany. My latest discovery is ┼Łelosoda. This is a naturally caffeinated cascara brew made from sun dried coffee cherries which originate from the volcan Bar├║ slopes in Panama. This gives me the perfect midday kick with the bonus of no added sugar. Cheers! I would really like to drink this in a tall glass mixed with a good golden tequila and ice. I bet this would put me straight into party mode after a long week at work.

I was so excited to receive a stylish new watch this week from the Danish watch company BERING. It has a classic and minimal chronograph face with a stylish brown strap that I love. The style is versatile so I can wear it with both smart and casual clothes. Bering watches are inspired by arctic beauty and the brand have been campaigning for the protection of polar bears in the wild since 2011. This year they have created a limited edition watch that is available from September with $15 from each charity watch sold being donated to the “save our sea ice” campaign.
