Free the Sound| Sudio Review

There’s nothing that gets me more upset than being in the middle of a meditation section and getting interrupted by external noises. Or even when I’m on the train listening to my own music and the person next to me has really bad quality earphones, so I can hear their horrible taste in music.


But recently, I found a new pair of wireless earphones with 24+ hours of playtime and it only takes 10 minutes to charge!


It has an impeccable balance of instrumental tones and noise clarity. I was very surprised with the sound quality and definition, but most of all because every time I listen to music or do my meditation it’s like a whole new experience.

The brand is called Sudio and you can get 15% off by using my code at checkout –  TIGERONAGOLDLEASH15

Reasons to start cycling today

If you haven’t yet discovered the wonders of cycling, you are about to, after reading this post. Either you’re a minimalist, Eco friendly, or whatever you like to label yourself, owning a bike and actually use it, is great in so many levels. Here are a few reasons why you should get a bike, now.


1. Exercise. I’ve decided to quit the gym since May. Most of the times it just made me feel guilty for not having time to go there. But you know what I have time to do? To cycle! Because I do it to go to work every day! Cycling burns an enormous amount of calories, and takes you places whilst you’re doing it.

2. Green. Bikes don’t release toxic gases. And they don’t take that much energy to make and transport. They run on good old clean human energy and extra calories!

3. Takes up less space. Bikes can fit in doorways, in the front garden, in alleyways, and in sheds. They can be parked on lamp posts, fences and railings. They’re great for city dwellers, studio flats, apartments, not to mention Minimalists!

4. Easier to maintain. Bike pieces are cheap and a lot of bike shops will help you out for free if you buy the parts from them.

5. Faster. One of the things I’ve been enjoying the most since I’ve got my bike is look at people stuck in a traffic jam and me still being able to cycle all the way through.

6. Quieter. There’s nothing more Zen than the silence of a bike, maybe my house on Sunday mornings when everyone is asleep, but not the point. Imagine the morning rush with no horns or beeps, engine hums and roars or people venting their road rage. Just a few cyclist’s bell things and the quiet clicks of the pedals running.

And these are just a few reasons why I’ve decided to get a bike. If you have more, please share on the comments below!

If you’re curious to know which bike I got head to my Instagram where I’ve been sharing a few pictures!

Chewsy Natural Gum | Review

I’ve always been a chewing gum fan, until I had to wear braces for 2 years and my addiction had to kind of slow down. I literally stopped buying gum.

After having my braces taken away and being able to chew gum with no difficult at all, I didn’t have the need to have it anymore. The addiction stopped. But this happened until I decided to try natural and sugar-free chewing gum.


Chewsy is the only 100% natural and sugar-free chewing gum in the UK made with only 5 natural ingredients sourced from trees. That means no aspartame, no artificial flavours or sweeteners, no preservatives, and no plastic gum base.


It has an extremely soft chew, and sweetened with natural xylitol for healthy teeth. And because they only use natural ingredients, their gum is biodegradable. Thumbs up for that!


The regular chewing gum is filled with a lot artificial stuff including aspartame, acesulfame-k, BHT, and a plastic gum base.

I definitely recommend you to try this healthy and tasty gum!
