How do you keep a work-life balance?
I try to keep a healthy lifestyle as much as I can. Running is part of my routine, I try to run at least twice a week otherwise I feel that my body is craving for some activity. With the pressure of work and the family life, I feel like running keeps me sane and allows me to keep the flow of creativity going.
What do you eat usually for breakfast?
If there is a bowl of cereals with raisins, almonds, nuts and dried apricots involved then I’m a happy person. I only drink one cup of coffee a day, and I skip it when I can. On Sundays, I make sure to have a traditional Tunisian breakfast which is homemade bread with olive oil, honey, hard eggs, milk, and Bsisa. My mom is a great cook and she taught me how to make homemade bread, jam, cheese and especially spices! So I always try to have homemade products around.
How is your beauty routine looking like?
I’m a big fan of natural products. I use unrefined coconut oil as the moisturizer for my face and body. It keeps the natural elasticity of the skin and helps to have a very soft skin too. I also use argan oil to prevent wrinkles. I also make homemade mixtures for body scrubs twice a month: I use extra virgin olive oil and coffee! It gives the skin extra softness and a lovely shining.
Where in the world would you like to live and why?
I would love to live in Spain, especially in Madrid. I feel like Madrid is so authentic, so “Spanish”. The food is great, the weather is fantastic and the people are easy going. But I must say that Italy is second on my list. I’m a big fan of Italian food and just the thought of being able to eat “Mama’s authentic food” every day is pretty tempting too!
How do you stay healthy during travels?
I’m an amateur of street food and I tend to try it as much as I can when I travel. I’m going to be very honest and say that, during my travels, I tend to try everything I want but with moderation. On the other hand, I always keep my running shoes with me. I love discovering new neighborhoods and meet other runners. I also keep a handful of nuts in my pocket as a snack to avoid being tempted by eating something I will regret when I come back home. Nevertheless, I enjoy my trips to the fullest and think that life is too short for diets.
