It’s winter, dark and a completely new year has started. One thing I promised myself for this year is to be nicer to myself in 2011, so in this post will be about nice & healthy experiences. I realised that sometimes, I seemed to forget myself and prioritize other stuff, so already a week before New Years Eve, I decided now it is time to be nice with to in the sense of:
- have a look at what I eat in the sense of avoiding E-951, E321 etc…(For those of you not yet aware of what (these) e-numbers are, we’ll get back on this topic shortly in a separate post.
- have a closer look at the products I use for my skin & hair; one thing important for example is that they should be paraben free. So, one of my favourite cosmetic brands is the Greek brand Korres that I quite recently discovered.
- allow a treat every now and then, for example do a visit to the spa or schedule a lovely massage.
In a previous post I wrote about newly launched organic massage candles and that post inspired me to plan a healthy Spa weekend combined with visiting friends in Madrid. So I checked with my friends and did a quick search online what’s available and here you have a summary:
Love the concept, I think found where I will do my first treat! Check out Ecobar & Spa, and their unique concept. As they state, “Ëcobar & Spa is the first “eco-center” in Spain that combines its three business lines: eco-shop, spa & wellbeing and organic Nordic-Mediterranean and Japanese food“. So my plan is to do a treatment, have a nice lunch and check out there store as well. All in one!
Antaura (at C/Argensola 16) is an organic delicatessen market place. So for those that want to make dinner at home instead of going out, this place seem to have a good selection of organic and good food products.
I have heard a lot about anti-ox products & diets but never really tried them so I found a restuarant called Silk & Soya that caught my attention. They offer anti-oxidant menus at Av. De la Ermita and I think it is worth checking out.
So, time to start planning…
