Models talk! Melody Vroom on How to change your lifestyle into a healthy one

mel2

Hi everyone,

I get a lot of questions from girls who want to change their lifestyle into a healthy one and don’t know how to begin with it. I thought, what better way to answer this question than with a blogpost? While reading this, remember that I’m not a nutritionist or an health expert, the tips I’m sharing with you are just things that work(ed) for me. Everyone has a different body, so everyone should do what feels right for them. These are just some tips to help everyone who wants to change their lifestyle and make it easier for them!

The first important change you have to make if you want to change your lifestyle is drinking a lot more water. I used to forget to drink water all the time and I mainly drank other things than water. When you start drinking enough water your skin gets better, you’re metabolism goes up and your overall health improves. Don’t drink more than 2.5 litres of water, doing this can damage your kidneys.

Another really important thing is to never skip breakfast. By eating a healthy, nutritious breakfast every morning you are full for longer and you won’t snack on bad food during the day because you’re less hungry.

Skipping snacks like candy, chips and other fatty or foods with a lot of added sugar and replacing them with (dried) fruits, vegetables, nuts, yoghurt etc. is the next step to healthy eating habits. All of these foods have great benefits. Fruits have a lot of fibres and vitamins just like vegetables, nuts have the healthy fats you need and yoghurt has protein. An example of a great snack is a mixture between carbs, fats and protein such as yoghurt (protein) with nuts (mainly fats) and fruits (carbs). This will keep you full until lunch/dinner and there are a lot of ways to keep healthy snacking fun so you grab a bag of candy much less likely.

Travel Journals from Fabienne Dobbe! Spotted in Istanbul!

unnamed

Hi, Spotted Style followers!

I am Fabienne Dobbe from Touche Model Management and this month I’m in Istanbul for modelling. I’m writing this travel journal in front of a heating lamp, because I’m freezing at the shoot and  I will tell you everything happening here in a bit!

I had a flight  to Istanbul on the 4th of November after I took my exam at school. During the first two weeks I did everyday castings and during the weekend I was free. So on my first Sunday I visited the Blue  Mosque with my roomies Dorin ( she is from Hungary) and Michalina  (she is from Poland).  After we visited the Blue Mosque we went to a little market next to it  and I bought some Turkish delight from there to bring   home. We went back Home and the week after we did a loooooot of castings again.

  1. The Tangle Teezer from Douglas

That was the 1st product on the list of our editor-in-chief Nadina. After friends recommended her the professional detangling hairbrush  for wet & dry hair, she got it and gave it a try. It turned automatically into her hair’s new best friend! Whenever she goes, she makes sure the Tangle Teezer is in her bag.

It’s ideal for all types of hair and can be used without any pulling or yanking. Tangle Teezer boasts a revolutionary teeth formation that delivers speedy and gentle results. Helps minimize hair breakage cause by mistreatment when detangling. Promotes healthy looking hair by noticeably increasing shine, leaving it looking silky smooth after styling.

  1. Treasure yourself by Miranda Kerr

‘’Sometimes, challenges and struggles are exactly what we need in our lives… May you welcome every effort, every struggle, and every challenge. May you open your wings and fly!  ‘’ – Miranda Kerr

A few weeks ago we were on the hunt for spiritual treasures  at one of our favorite bookstores in Amsterdam, Waterstone and we found the right one for us at that time. The book of the model Miranda Kerr ‘’Treasure Yourself’’ got our attention with its caption. You can’t judge the book by its cover, they say but in this case even if we have done it, we were going to be right. The book is as beautiful on the outside as inside. After we got the writing of the Victoria ‘s Secret angel Miranda, her world of positivity, greatfullness  and inspiration revealed in front of us. In the book she also shares about her experience and life of a model. It can be a great gift for you or one of your girlfriends.

Miranda Kerr is many things- supermodel, activist, wife and mother- but she is also an emerging voice in the world of self-empowerment. Now she has  written a book to shine the light of positivity on those who need it most. ‘’I wish to share my inspiration with you so that you will treasure and believe in yourself’’, she explains. ‘’If  you have faith in your abilities and accept who you are, you will uncover your unique gifts. We all have wings, but it is up to each one of us to have the courage to fly. ‘’My hope is that my words and affirmations I have included will help empower you to reach for your dreams, even in difficult times. With action, anything in life is possible.’’

If you are up to date with the happenings in Amsterdam, you probably have heard about the first Vogue pop-up store. The doors of the Vogue’s mini fashion heaven were opened for 48 hours in Keizersgracht 469, Amsterdam.
