Keeping Squats Low and the Music Volume High| Sudio Review

Gym days have been great! I’m past the sore days after a workout and I’m eating healthier every day, which really helps to stay active and to feel motivated too.

There was only one thing bothering me up until a few weeks ago. I love listening to music while working out. It makes the time go faster without me realising how much of an effort I’m actually doing. But it’s hard to find earphones that can keep up with all the movements. Until I decided to pay a visit to Sudio’s website.

I already own a pair of headphones from Sudio that really help me with my meditation sessions and my train journeys to London. You can read my review here.

But those headphones are not fit for the gym, they’re too big even though they’re very comfy.

I needed something smaller and practical, I needed a Vasa BLÅ – Rose Gold White, a wireless in-ear model with 9+ hour battery life, rose gold detailing, and studio quality sound. They’re not only stylish but they’re extremely useful because you can just put them around your neck even when you’re not using them.

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 –  TIGER15

Oblix Restaurant Review

For me, The Shard, is one of the most beautiful buildings in London and I’ve always been curious about the views from up there. So on my boyfriend’s and my second year anniversary, we’ve decided to have dinner at one of the Shard’s restaurants, The Oblix.

You have the option to have dinner at the restaurant or at the Lounge, where you can still order from the menu a la carte, but the ambience is slightly different.

We’ve chosen the lounge with live music and the same amazing views from the city of London. It’s when you are up there that you realise how big and energetic this city can be. In a way it makes me feel good about the fact that I have the privilege to work in such an amazing city. But I also loved the thought of every day being able to go back home to a calmer area such as Kent. It’s great to have the best of both worlds.

But enough with the views and let’s talk about food!

I ordered the lobster & scallop ceviche, jalapeno, coriander & sweet pepper. I haven’t eaten lobster in quite a while because not every chef knows how to cook a proper one. But I trusted the chef this time and, good thing I did because it was simply delicious. As a side, I went for the green beans, pancetta & truffled ricotta. Let me tell you, it was a match made in heaven.

My boyfriend ordered the sea bass, fennel & olives and for a meat lover, he had to confess he enjoyed it a lot. As a side, he had the mashed potatoes, garlic crisps, which, of course, I had to steal and I recommend it 100%.

For dessert, we both have very similar tastes and we both chose the pecan nut & chocolate bar, crunchy bourbon ice cream. One for each, because desserts were not made to share. We both agreed that it was delicious but we wouldn’t add as much pecan nut. It’s a bit overwhelming.

Overall, it was a great experience, and even though you might look at the prices and think it’s too expensive, I would recommend it at least once in your life. You will not feel sorry.
