Last week was one of my craziest weeks ever - it spanned 3 countries - a wedding in Tormina - a google conference in Dublin, and a short holiday/exhibition-viewing in London. Taormina is really beautiful at this time of year, I had ony been in August and it's generally much busier then so this was really lovely - there's so much good food, shopping, walks - one of my favourite places to spend a few days.

I've teamed up with the Entertainer once again and set off on a new adventure - this time on an outdoor/beach personal training session with Jungle Spirit (one of the 2 for 1 services available on The Entertainer).
The Entertainer is a new 2-for-1 app that was launched in Malta - you buy, either as an app or as a hard-copy book, you then have a set of 2-for-1 vouchers for a range of different services that can be used any day & time.
I also got you guys a 10% discount on the product - simply enter CAROLINE10 in the promo code box in the shopping cart from the website.
The session lasted about an hour. I met my trainer Balazs at 7 a.m. at Exiles, straight away from his attitude, I knew this was going to be a tough session. It kicked off with a jog and run across the beach for about 15 minutes, part of which included running up and down steps and continued with a series of exercises including strength exercises, core work, and flexibility training.
After the hour session was done, I was well and truly wiped but I also felt really good. My posture felt better and my body felt looser. What I really liked was that it felt as though I had got a total body workout oot just for instance a leg workout or an arms workout. This was my first time training outdoors, I'm normally more of a gym inbound person. The great thing is he taught me some tips and exercises that I can use by myself at the gym.
Personal Training is a great way to get fit but it doesn't come cheap, at least with the Entertainer you can get 2 sessions for the price of 1 and they also have other exercise class offers you can mak use of.
If you decide to buy the product remember to use my promo and get 10% discount - simply enter CAROLINE10 in the promo code box in the shopping cart from the website.

If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you must know that I've spent the last two days at a Google Conference. I met so many interesting people, all of them running different SME digital companies - some startups, some non-profit, others highly profitable. One business owner who really caught my interest is the owner of a company called My Nametags. This product is really quite innovative and perfect for this week's family corner edition.

Who is RAOUL?
RAOUL, from the house of F J Benjamin is one of those brands that is currently enjoying a wave of popularity. Douglas and Odile Benjamin are the husband and wife power couple behind this Singapore - based brand. The new collection. Has just arrived to Malta, at Rebelli so I thought I'd stop by and have a look. I love the feminine, powerful cuts, the graphical prints and the combination of different fabrics. There's a lot of versatility in the range even as to which occasion to wear the pieces too - there are long, beautiful dresses, midi skirts, tailored shorts and kimonos.

From what I've heard, being heavily pregnant in summer isn't all that great what with the summer heat, summer weddings, parties, BBQs and events - apparently, generally, many pregnant women end up hot and bothered. Whilst clothes can't solve the heat problem, new clothes can hopefully generate a few smiles at the very least especially easy-to-wear summer dresses.

In Malta, we are blessed with many beautiful things but one thing we definitely aren't blessed with is weather-friendly hair and easily manageable hair (although the latter one does apply for a lucky few) The weather in Malta tends to be very humid, enabling our already rather coarse and frizzy hair to guess what ? Frizz.
So how do we beat the frizz and get long-lasting smooth and sleek hair? I sat down with Gordon Mayo, CEO and director of Toni and Guy Malta and asked him a few questions.
