ROBOROCK: The Future of Cleaning has arrived

Hello guys, how are you today? When I was a child, I was wondering when would be the best time to change my daily practice regarding some basic necessities. Naturally, when we decide that this time has come, we start thinking what would be the best (and easiest) to change.

We give our best to maintain the cleanliness of our home at the highest level and we try in different ways to clean our living space, but sometimes it takes a lot of time and energy to invest and we do not have time to do other important daily things or even more for our loved ones.

Times have changed and modern technology provides new solutions that will make our life easier. The experts from the Roborock company are changing our everyday life with their incredible products. I’m sure you’ve heard of cleaning robots, which can vacuum and mop different types of floors, but are they all really good?

There are many robot vacuum and mop cleaners on the market today with many options, but many of them are not developed enough to do the real work! Roborock, a company specializing in the development and production of robotic and cordless household vacuum cleaners, has made people’s lives easier around the world with its products. I was given the opportunity to test the capabilities of their new model of robotic wireless vacuum and mop cleaner Roborock S7 MaxV.

What are the advantages of the new Roborock S7 MaxV model?

The Roborock S7 MaxV is the newest flagship robot vacuum with precision structured light obstacle avoidance ReactiveAI 2.0, acclaimed intelligent mopping system VibraRise® and 5100 Pa extreme suction power, delivering convenience and powerful cleaning to households.

This incredible robot vacuum cleaner has a better Obstacle Recognition and Avoidance = Smarter Navigation system combining the best of both 3D structured light technology and an RGB camera system which is a better solution to achieve effective obstacle avoidance for security and cleanliness of your home.

In addition to improved obstacle recognition and avoidance, the S7 MaxV can also recognize furniture, including beds, sofas and dining tables, and position them in the map, allowing users to conveniently start a quick clean around them with just a simple click via Roborock mobile application, so when it comes time to clean it can be done quickly and easily in seconds and so you can set aside time for yourself and your family.

There is one more very important and interesting option which you can use an onboard camera and microphone, so you can watch and talk with your kids or pets on the Roborock mobile app, no matter where you are. Also, you can even drive the robot vacuum on the app to navigate wherever area you prefer to see and check the safety of your home.

In addition to a lightweight dust bag cleaning system, this model has a seriously stronger suction power compared to previous Roborock models. The new Roborock S7 MaxV model is strong and “brave” enough to pull out all the dirt hiding in your carpets and pull out all the dirt particles hiding in wooden floors with a maximum suction power of 5100 Pa. There are 5 suction modes which you can use: quiet, balanced, turbo, Max and Max+ mode.

Feel the power of double balanced cleaning when you are able to catch the finest dirt that you can’t achieve with ordinary vacuuming, using the power of a vacuum cleaner and a mop cleaner at the same time.

The Roborock S7 MaxV is equipped with the latest sonic vibration pumps which can scrub floors up to 3,000 times per minute, so you can adjust the cleaning to suit your floor types and personal preferences.

This model also has an option of automatic mop lifting, so the intelligent mop lifts when the carpet is detected. So, at the same time you can safely use the Roborock S7 MaxV to mop hard floors and vacuum carperts in just a single clean process. Using ultrasonic sound, the Roborock S7 MaxV recognizes carpet with extraordinary accuracy. Vacuum your entire home once to see every carpet on your floor, then you can choose to let it lift its mop to vacuum, or you can draw a No-Mop Zone right on the carpet to keep it away.

This model features the latest generation LiDAR processor, a brain that drives the exceptional ability of the Roborock S7 MaxV robot to find the most efficient and best way to clean your entire home. This system creates special maps that allow you to run a set of functions that you can control in the Roborock mobile application.

Your home will shine with special 3D mapping and your Roborock S7 Max V will more clearly understand the look of your living space. The S7 MaxV can even identify rooms (Bedroom, Living Room, Dining Room, Bathroom) just to recommend ideal cleaning patterns, such as suction power and scrub intensity to ensure the best clean of your living space. There is a possibility of adding furniture and various floor materials (carpets and bases) to create the most accurate image of your home.

Adjusting the No-Go zones and setting up invisible walls is very simple. You can always easily and simply define an area that a robot should not enter. Each floor in your home can have No-Go areas and invisible walls. You can adjust everything automatically after the level is recognized in the Roborock mobile app.

What is the secret to successful cleaning with a Roborock S7 MaxV robot?

This robot has a powerful rubber brush that is long-lasting and allows easy and quick cleaning of dirt and quickly moves dust into the vacuum cleaner jet. The brush is strong and resistant to tangles from hair and pet hair. This brush can successfully move over glass surfaces and always adheres to the surface for more successful and efficient cleaning.

The Roborock team of experts thought of your loved ones and pets who, due to their curiosity, can accidentally start cleaning, but this can be successfully prevented if the special option “Padlock for children and pets” is used.

Is the Roborock S7 MaxV the future of cleaning we’ve been waiting for? The answer is YES and finally the future has arrived and we can enjoy the charms of new modern technology and set aside time for ourselves and our family. Time is precious and we should think of our beloved and ourselves. Let the Roborock S7 MaxV take care of the cleanliness of your home, and you will have more time for your family and yourself. It’s time to forget about the classic cleaning, which will allow you the new Roborock S7 MaxV.

You can buy Roborock S7 MaxV in Germany via Media Markt and Saturn online shops.

V Canto: Is Love at First Scent Real?

Dear lovers of exotic and unique scents, welcome to another unusually fragrant story on the Mr.M blog. After fashion, interesting travels and life topics, I decided to share with you my opinion whether there is love at first scent.

The historical question is about true attraction and is there really love at first sight? Have you ever thought about the elements of fatal attraction? what can really affect mutual attraction? Is it maybe someone’s scent, voice, gestures or something else?

Scientists claim that there are theories of fatal attraction that can be based on the theory of scents. The sense of smell (olfaction) is one of the most important senses for the first impression. We use this sense consciously. For example, to smell a flower…

On an unconscious level, our brain relies heavily on smell. When we eat, we recognize by smell whether that food is good or not. Smell is one of the deciding factors when we fall in love. We are not even aware of how much information our brain receives every day using only the sense of smell.

December is a special month when the real power of attraction is celebrated and there is always the famous dilemma: What is the ideal gift for the New Year?

Of course, there are many ideas and people are different, so the interests are different. That is why it is important to buy an impressive gift that will always remind them of you and some beautiful moments. People say that a smile is the best gift, but the perfume and fragrant notes it carries are unforgettable.

I’m sure you remember the Italian perfume house Tiziana Terenzi, I wrote about their unusual perfumes, which with their unique and exotic fragrant notes win the hearts of people all over Europe and the world. If you want to be reminded of my story about Tiziana Terenzi’s fragrant world, visit the following link.

V Canto is a new line of perfumes from the family company Cereria Terenzi Evelino, behind which proudly stand Paolo Terenzi and Tiziana Terenzi, who are also the founders of the perfume brand Tiziana Terenzi. The “Divine Comedy” of the famous Dante Alighieri served as the inspiration for the founding of the V Canto line, and this unusual line of parfait uniquely describes the love for the homeland and the roots.

Inspired by the verses and places mentioned in the work itself, a line of unique exotic perfumes was created. The first perfumes were introduced in 2015, and since then, the Terenzi family has not ceased to delight with their incredible fragrant collections.

Why are V Canto perfumes unique? Each of the perfumes has the task of taking each person on an unusual fragrant journey with its exotic notes. Seductive fragrant notes are in an unusual way to evoke the story of human nature and become a faithful companion.

If you want to meet a person, perfume is a “mirror” of a soul because the scents we wear are a reflection of our character, they depict a human being in its purest form.

V Canto fragrant notes carry with them the beauty of medieval poetry, true art and the human soul.

V Canto line has a large number of perfumes and scented candles, but this time I tried to find the right notes in the “fragrant paradise” of the Terenzi family that define my character and sensibility.

This line has 5 seductive collections of fragrant notes that will capture your heart, some collections are named after colors from Divine Comedy such as Blue, Green and Red, while two collections have special names such as Love Leaves and Souls of the Castle.

V Canto Isotta, a fragrance that is easy to remember and hard to forget! The purple color symbolizes nobility, wisdom, creativity, mystery and dignity, and therefore the Isotta packaging proudly has this color.

How did this idyllic fragrant creation come about and who served as the inspiration? This creation was inspired by one of the most important “souls” who ever lived in Gradara castle, Princess Isotta, the wife of Prince Sigismondo. A beautiful, charming and intelligent fatal woman, her behavior, only posture and manners were not only gentle and refined but also energetic. She was a sophisticated strategist, with unique skills in the art of diplomacy and war.

Wise and determined, able to command armies and rule with her Prince, she was as strong and determined as the essence of the perfume itself, which she used as a purely artistic inspiration.

What are the ingredients that make V Canto Isotta perfume so special? Isotta is a unique harmony of specially selected fragrant notes and belongs to the collection of the Souls of the Castle.

  • Top notes: Sorrento Lemon, Sicilian Grapefruit, Japanese, Spearmint, Eucalyptus
  • Heart notes: Bulgarian Rose, African Geranium, Jasmine Absolute
  • Base notes: Cedarwood, Vanilla Bean, Tonka Bean, Musk

These fragrant notes leave a gentle and persistent mark on its wearer. Unisex fragrant creation inspired by refined elegance and royal beauty.

Another fragrant creation I have chosen to brighten up my winter days is V Canto Malatesta. This creation is inspired by the essence of nobility and strength characteristic of the Malatesta family, one of the most important families in the history of Italy. The fragrant story begins with a bouquet of Italian citrus, where Sicilian orange and Calabrian mandarin sprout, accentuated with royal notes of oris.

The Florentine lily, as it is also known, is an essential symbol of the Italian nobility, and these iris roots are as rare as they are precious. This royal head rests imperially on a carpet of martial intensity that beats as if to the sounds of drums. The freshness of Italian lavender includes the softness of jasmine, while the strength of cedar and Tuscan leather is accentuated by sparkling pink pepper.

Who was the inspiration for the Malatesta perfume? The Malatesta were a noble Italian family, among the most important and influential in the Middle Ages. The most important of this tribal lineage was Malatesta da Verucchio, who, thanks to his military and political abilities, took the name Mastin Vecchio (old bulldog). His eldest son, Giovanni Malatesta (known as Gianciotto, Lord of Gradara), unfortunately became notorious in the tragedy of Dante Alighieri in the Fifth Canto of Inferno. Dante tells a love story between Gianciotto’s older brother Paolo and his beautiful wife Francesca. Eternal love that still resonates for centuries from the castle walls along and across the valley.

The most famous of all Malatesta was without a doubt Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, with whom the family reached the peak of its fame and fortune. This creation is inspired by the essence of nobility and strength characteristic of the Malatesta family, one of the most important families in the history of Italy.

What are the ingredients that make V Canto Malatesta perfume so special? Malatesta is a special harmony of fragrant notes and also belongs to the collection of the Soul of the Castle.

  • Top notes: Sicilian Orange, Calabrian Mandarin, Lily of Florence, Orris
  • Heart notes: Italian Lavender, Jasmine, Cedar of Lebanon, Pink Pepper, Tuscan Leather
  • Base notes: Musk, Vanilla Bean, Cambodian Oudh, Agarwood, Red Patchouli

The basis of this creation lies in the royal strength and elegance, in which an alliance of precious trees emerges, such as Cambodian oudh, agarwood and Indian red patchouli accented with vanilla and musk berries. An elegant and seductive creation that sums up the spirit of the kingdom in just one drop of perfume.

Dear perfume lovers, we have come to the end of this special story about unusual V Canto perfumes. How did you like this fragrant story of mine today and a review of the unusual notes of V Canto Isotta and Malatesta perfumes? See you in a few days with some new interesting fragrant story about one iconic perfume from the Tiziana Terenzi collection that will capture your heart!

Perfume is a gift that will always be a good reminder for someone really thinks of you. It is a memory that does not fade, an unforgettable scent journey.

Arpanu Medical: My experience with cosmetic nose surgery in Turkey…

Dear readers, welcome to another new post on Mr.M blog. After 6 years of Mr.M blog existence, I know that people who visit my blog are divided into two groups: hedonists who are fans of more interesting travels and fashion lovers who are looking for interesting fashion inspirations.

Today’s post will be a little different, but I’m sure it will benefit all of you who are thinking about cosmetic surgery. The previous post was a kind of guide through Istanbul and partially explained the principle of medical tourism in Turkey. Today’s post will be dedicated to our personal experience with plastic and cosmetic surgery in Istanbul.

My mother had an unsuccessful nose intervention more than 15 years ago, she did rhinoplasty with nasal septal deviation surgery – septoplasty in Serbia. My mother was very disappointed with the results and out of fear she decided not to do this type of intervention anymore. The years passed, my mother expressed increasing dissatisfaction and I decided to help her fulfill her dream – to finally breathe and get a better look of her nose.

On the other hand, I was not satisfied with the appearance of my nose either and I had a problem with the deviation of the nasal septum. Honestly, my desire to have a more beautiful nose prevailed and along the way I decided to improve my quality of life, if I allow myself to breathe better.

When was I aware of the moment that I would change myself? The moment I bought plane tickets for my mom and me through the Air Montenegro website, it was only then that I realized that I would finally do something nice and useful for my mom and myself.

Arpanu Medical Travel is a travel agent, certified as a medical tourism assistance agent by the Turkish Ministry of Health and has been an active member of the Association of Turkish Travel Agencies since 2011.

Arpanu Medical aims to be your reliable partner during your medical experience in Turkey. Each patient has their own unique customized program with health services provided by esteemed hospitals and private clinics in Turkey. The basic task is to combine health with comfort and safety while performing the selected medical program.

Through its close and intensive cooperation with renowned local health care providers, the company enables it to continuously expand the range of services, formulate unique programs and offer cost-effective solutions for patients.

All operations are performed by highly qualified doctors and medical staff in modern, fully sterilized operating rooms with sophisticated state-of-the-art medical equipment.

Arpanu Medical offers a large number of medical services in the field of: Hair transplantation, Aesthetics , Dentistry, Bariatric surgery – obesity, ophthalmic services, in vitro fertilization – IVF, Oncology, as well as regular Health Check-Up.

What does medical tourism in Turkey look like with the Arpanu Medical and how does the process go from the beginning to the end of the chosen program? All information about the process you can find on this link.

In this post, I will describe our experience with Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic, which belongs to the Arpan Medical travel group of medical institutions. Dr. Serkan Aygin founded the Dr. Serkan Aygin Medical Centre, which brings together highly qualified medical specialists, who provide the best medical services to patients with their experience.

Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic together with hair transplant services offered by Dr. Serkan Aygin also provides health services in the field of esthetics and cosmetic surgery.

The look of the clinic itself is modernist and you just don’t have the feeling that you are in a medical institution, but that you are in a museum of modern art. Dr. Aygin wanted to pass on his love of art and medicine to his patients, where in addition to exceptional service, patients can enjoy the beauty of modern art.

Before the first consultation with the chosen doctor, you get to fill out one type of questionnaire with basic personal information and about your health.

After the consultation with our surgeon, my mother and I realized that we had come to the right place. Mom and I were thrilled by the kindness of our chosen surgeon and Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic staff. The doctor listened to all our wishes and pointed out to us the possibilities, as well as potential solutions to our problems. My mother was offered a secondary rhinoplasty with a complete reconstruction of the nose and a cartilage transplant.

My mother’s operation was generally more difficult because of her condition, while my wishes were quite demanding because I had a specific vision of the look of my nose and face. The doctor was extremely patient, cheerful and smiling at the same time with a great deal of optimism, which gave my mother and me confidence that everything would be just perfect.

The next step was to schedule an intervention and wait for it! Excitement that is sometimes difficult to understand, but it is human nature to hope and strive for the best.

OPERATION DAY

As with any cosmetic surgery, a certain type of preparation is required, you receive all the necessary instructions from the chosen surgeon during the first consultation, so you know exactly what you can and cannot do before the intervention.

Before the operation, blood tests and diagnostics (heart and lungs) are performed in preparation for the intervention itself and general anesthesia. Our tests were done on the day of the intervention. My operation was scheduled for 9 am, my mother’s between 1 and 2 p.m.

It is important to note that the local transport between the hotel and the clinic is regulated so that you do not have to worry about coming to the clinic for the first consultation, going to the operation and examinations that follow after the operation.

After the preparations, our surgeon came to visit us before the operation to go through the list of our wishes once again and to confirm all the requests. Because of the great excitement, I can only remember the quick change into hospital pajamas and the smiling nurses who greeted me during my “journey” through the hallways to the operating room.

The picture was taken 3 hours after the operation

Most of people are afraid of general anesthesia because each organism reacts differently to surgery and general anesthesia. Since I had various types of surgery (perforated appendix surgery, jaw surgery, etc.), I had experiences with general anesthesia several times, sometimes I was conscious, sometimes I only remember the details of waking up from anesthesia through the dream.

This time I really had a wonderful experience because from the first moment of waking up from anesthesia I was cheerful and in the mood for conversation with people. Anyone who remembers my Instagram stories, you know that I filmed the moments after waking up with an ice mask on my face.

Before and after my nose job – rhinoplasty

The operation went great, I got a meal after a couple of hours where I had an appetite and I ate well and talked to the clinic staff. After a few hours, the anesthesia subsides and mild pain begins, which can be regulated with painkillers and sedatives, but if you believe me, I didn’t take it. My pain was mild and I felt more like a kind of discomfort due to the swelling present, nothing more…

Mother’s makeover: before and after secondary rhinoplasty with total reconstruction and cartilage transplantation

My mom on the other hand had a slightly harder night due to more demanding surgery, but after receiving two doses of painkillers and tranquilizers the night passed relatively calmly and we were both curious to see what we looked like, the difference was that I had a phone so I could look at “the mirror” while my mom was quite impatient because she had nothing on hand to allow her to look herself.

My mother had a more difficult recovery because her operation was demanding, since a secondary rhinoplasty was performed with a complete reconstruction of the nose and a graft transplant in the form of a graft. 7 cartilage grafts were transplanted.

Since I had surgery in the morning, the nurses came to me in the evening to let me know that it was time for a little walk. I admit, I was scared because I felt mild pain and discomfort due to the swollen face, but with the advice of the nurses, little Marko left the Instagram and the recordings and went for a walk around the corridors of the clinic.

I am one of those patients who are extremely obedient and have a few questions and a thousand sub-questions. I took seriously the task of not looking at the ground, but keeping my head straight all the time, and that first walk went in the best possible way.

My mom later went for a walk, in the early morning hours, she had a feeling of nausea, but the medication helped her get through it all!

4 days after surgery

RECOVERY TIME

How is the recovery period after rhinoplasty? Recovery is an individual matter and depends on the severity of the procedure, I can only share my experience with you. We spent one night in the hospital and headed back to the hotel. We wore a nose mask for 7 days. My mom had extra patches for her nose reconstruction which I helped her to take off after 7 days.

While wearing the mask on your nose, until you take it off, you receive instructions and certain medications that help you reduce the pain, swelling, antibiotics and other drugs.

Day 7: Removing the nose mask and it’s for shooting the first post-op results

Swelling and bruising, how to deal with these “visitors”? Swelling and bruising are the most common guests after nose surgery that you will hang out with for a while. There are various tips and tricks that can help alleviate swelling and bruising with the help of medications and ice packs. In time, everything comes into its place, you just need to be patient. Time heals everything…

One picture with our surgeon

Nose surgery is a very delicate surgical intervention that has great health and aesthetic significance. Deviation of the nasal septum can be a major health problem and difficulty breathing can reduce quality of life. On the other hand, the aesthetic aspect of rhinoplasty is important because it restores self-confidence and a person feels better when he sees a better version of himself in the mirror.

When you decide on this type of intervention, it is very important to find the right doctor who will understand your wishes and needs.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Arpanu Medical Group and Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic for this exceptional experience and it was a great pleasure to visit Istanbul and change myself. Also, special thanks to Air Montenegro, which made my adventure unforgettable, and I hope to pack my bags again for some new adventures and memories that I will remember!

Dear readers, we have come to the end of this special post from Turkey, which would not have been possible without the selfless help of Air Montenegro and Arpanu Medical Group, partners who made it possible for me to share my impressions of medical tourism in Turkey.

The picture was taken 8 days after the nose surgery

Time always flies when a person has a good time! A man is rich at heart if he has managed to explore the world and I am glad to always be able to find suitable partners for my projects that allow me to discover some new and unusual destinations in a completely different way during this global health crisis COVID-19.

I am honored to have the opportunity to work with companies that are at the very top in the each industry and I would like to thank them for this amazing adventure and for allowing me to experience the charms of Istanbul in a completely different way.

How did you like this story of mine today? Have you ever considered changing something about yourself and doing something special for yourself?

Letters from Turkey: Istanbul, City of Two Continents…

My dear travellers, I hope you are well and ready for a new adventure! After a long break after tsarist Russia, a magical adventure that we all experienced together at the beginning of this year in St. Petersburg, it’s time for a new destination!

Today’s post will be dedicated to the city that I truly love because of its oriental charm and cordial mentality of the people. As a person whose travel has become more than a passionate hobby, I must admit that I missed some little things like the loudspeaker at the airport, travelers who are excited to look for their passports and flight tickets, especially the youngest adventurers who see special edition of M&M sweets in the airport shop.

This time I had the opportunity to experience the ease of travel with the unique and elegant suitcases and travel accessories of the Italian house Bric’s. The Bellagio collection allows all travel hedonists to travel in style with appropriate travel pieces that captivate with true elegance, while on the other hand, the Life Pelle collection nurtures the beauty of leather travel pieces with which you can travel around the world.

Italian fashion house Bric’s is the best ally for any trip with style: the Bellagio Trolley Organizer and the backpack from the Life Pelle collection.

Bric’s story begins with Mr. Mario Briccola’s dreams of quality luggage and leather goods in 1952 in the Como region. The brand has become internationally known for its handmade luggage made of the finest Tuscan leather and the most modern, durable nylon. Although Bric’s has now outgrown the original workshop, love and a personal stamp for every piece made are still present in every piece today.

Now the second generation of the Briccola family is providing its heritage of quality, style and attention to detail which Mr. Mario Briccola started. Known as the best Italian brand for luggage quality, Bric’s continued to justify its reputation. From luggage over handbags to spacious cosmetic bags and accessories quality workmanship is easily noticeable.

Using only the finest materials such as micro antelope skin that is resistant to all weather conditions and leather tanned in plants, Bric’s luggage is made to withstand everything and give you a sense of security and the beauty of travel in style.

With several leading stores around the world, Bric’s continues to develop Mario Briccola’s dream and becomes a world-renowned brand in the field of travel. Bric’s is a story about family, hard work, crafts and a company where dreams really come true.

This adventure would not have been possible without the cordial support of my friends from Air Montenegro who allowed me to feel the beauty and security of traveling during the pandemic.

Air Montenegro is a new airline founded by the Government of Montenegro at the beginning of 2021. The first flight of this company was made in June this year. Air Montenegro’s vision is to be one of the key pillars of tourism, to support the national economy and the economy as a sustainable company that will create a large number of jobs and reduce unemployment in Montenegro.

Responsible and sustainable business positively affect long-term relationships with society, resources and the environment. Air Montenegro also takes care of the safety and health of passengers and employees. It is important to note that Air Montenegro has received the international Safe Travels badge.

“Safe Travel” is a special tourist label that allows travelers to identify destinations and companies around the world, which in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have adopted global standards of health and hygiene.

Air Montenegro joined the European Association of Airlines of the Region (ERA) in October this year. One of the main goals of the Association, which has over 55 airlines, is to represent the interests of all members before major European regulators, governments and legislators in order to encourage and develop awareness of long-term and sustainable growth for the sector and the airline industry.

The first commercial flight of this company was on the route Podgorica – Sarajevo on June 1, 2021, as part of the Montenegrin national football team that traveled to Sarajevo. Regular commercial traffic of Air Montenegro was launched on June 10 with the route Podgorica – Belgrade. The fleet of this young airline consists of Embraer 195 medium-range passenger planes.

For all fans of the Montenegrin coast, the airline Air Montenegro has special offers for flights Frankfurt – Podgorica and Ljubljana – Podgorica and Tivat as well. These flights are performed throughout the year, so you have the opportunity to enjoy the natural wild beauty of Montenegro throughout the year. Also, one of the destinations in the region that you can visit with Air Montenegro is Banja Luka, which proudly bears the title of “Green Valley” as a symbol of beauty and greenery.

In today’s post, I will share my adventure and what a trip with Air Montenegro to Oriental Istanbul looks like! If you are ready to feel the magic of traveling during the New Year holidays, visit the Air Montenegro website and book your seat by the window so you can enjoy the enchanting view!

To get to magical Istanbul, the first thing you need to do is head to beautiful Tivat where you have two options: take a break and enjoy the beauties of Tivat and its surroundings or continue your journey to Istanbul and maybe during the return to experience the charms of wonderful Montenegro.

The flight to Tivat is maybe short, but the picturesque landscapes that you will have the opportunity to see will be worth as a new life experience that will not be forgotten. My sincere advice is to prepare your phones and capture these moments when you fly over the mountain ranges and suddenly see the beauty of the Montenegrin coast, these contrasts are just amazing!

Since I had the opportunity to visit Podgorica a few years ago, it was a great pleasure for me to have the opportunity to see what the Mediterranean part looks like and to feel the beauty of the coastal landscapes.

Just landing at the airport in Tivat was a fantastic experience because you have the opportunity to see the Bay of Kotor. I have always been fascinated by airports located by the water. As it was cold and changeable in Belgrade, the weather in Tivat was unusually warm and sunny for this time of year!

Do you remember the possibilities I mentioned a moment ago? I decided that due to the terms of the consultation with the doctors and procedures that awaited me in Turkey, it was best to continue my journey to Istanbul, so I had at least 2 hours to enjoy the beauty and smell of water in the Mediterranean.

The time at the airport passed quickly, while I picked up my suitcase and performed all the necessary procedures, it was time to board the second flight to my final destination – Istanbul.

The flight Tivat – Istanbul lasts about an hour and a half, maybe about 1 hour and 45 minutes, just enough to enjoy “life in the clouds”. Istanbul has more airports, it is important to know that Air Montenegro planes land at the new international airport in Istanbul. Refreshment and in-flight snacks are available on all Air Montenegro flights.

ISTANBUL

Are there words that can describe this picturesque metropolis that today has over 15 million inhabitants, yes you read well over 15 million people live in Istanbul! Some sources unofficially claim that about 20 million people live in Istanbul, but that is unconfirmed information. Honestly, I believe that about 18 million people live in Istanbul, so maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle.

Why do all roads lead to Istanbul today? Istanbul is considered the economic, social and cultural center of the Republic of Turkey. In addition, Istanbul is one of the most populous cities in the world, the seventh largest city in the world and the largest city in Europe. Istanbul is considered a bridge between East and West.

I admit that I have been to Istanbul more times than I have years and this city is one of my favorites because it has that unusual oriental charm and it is a city that never sleeps! There are many reasons why tourists come to Istanbul today, many come for good shopping, some for visiting cultural heritage, while some like me come this time for the famous medical tourism.

Taksim Square, located in the Beyoglu district in the European part of Istanbul, is a major tourist and recreational district known for its restaurants, shops and hotels. It is considered the heart of modern Istanbul with the central station of the Istanbul metro network. Taksim Square is also famous for the monument of the Republic, which you can see better in my picture with a simit (bagel).

Don’t miss the opportunity to catch the famous red tram number two and ride along the entire Istikal Street. It is a unique experience and will be remembered for a lifetime!

When you come to Istanbul, on the streets of the city you will notice the curled heads of men who have had hair transplants, masks on the noses of men and women who have solved their health and aesthetic problem, of course there are women in their golden age who proudly show that have regained their youth.

Since I came to Istanbul this time with the intention of helping myself, I did something beautiful and useful for myself in order to improve my health and beautify myself, I counted in myself how many people on the street really did something for themselves.

I admit that at first I was amazed while pulling the suitcase, I was not very active in counting, but I think I met at least 30 people who had some aesthetic procedure, mostly nose surgery or hair transplantation.

Turkish plastic surgeons are considered one of the best in Europe, perhaps even in the world. Also, other branches of medicine have been developed, especially oncology, which unfortunately has an increasing number of cases and patients come to Turkey to find a cure and their salvation.

In addition to aesthetic and plastic surgery, dental services are represented in Turkey, as well as services related to gastric surgery, procedures that enable significant and permanent weight loss.

Since many of you contacted me about obesity surgery while I was in Istanbul, I inquired a little about these interventions. Gastric surgery as part of obesity surgery is drastically cheaper in Turkey than in other countries in Europe and the world as well. Due to the large number of patients coming from Europe and the world, Turkish doctors have gained experience. Since there are several types of procedures related to obesity surgery, I am not competent to talk about it in more detail, but I can tell you that the prices are quite cheaper than in Germany.

Many people from Europe and the world went to Istanbul to solve this health problem and really managed to lose weight, but I note that it is necessary to be careful and choose the right clinic for any type of intervention. Obesity is a serious health problem and surgery to reduce the weight is serious and you need to find the right doctor to help you.

Most people who followed my experience on social media were interested in how medical tourism works in Turkey. Is it really based on the principle “you come in, go out and it’s over” and after a few days you just fly back home or is it just a fairy tale.

When it comes to plastic surgery, everything is extremely simple. The most important thing is not to make a mistake in the initial selection of the clinic and the doctor, and everything else goes according to plan. The second step is arranging an arrival in Turkey and the first consultation with a selected plastic surgeon.

At the first consultation, you meet the doctor and try to explain all your wishes in more detail so that the doctor understands the reason for your visit, as I explained in detail what bothers me on my nose and face in general. When it comes to communicating with the staff at the clinic, a large number of clinics have staff who speak some of the languages from your country or hire an interpreter who spends time with you at the clinic, as well as afterwards during the operation.

When you have finished the first consultation with your chosen doctor, his assistant will schedule an intervention. Sometimes the clinic immediately offers you the date of the operation, but in most cases the clinic schedules a consultation with the patient in the period when it can perform the intervention, so that enough time is left for the patient to decide after the first consultation.

Local transport around Istanbul, hotel – clinic – hotel is free in most cases so you don’t have to worry about how to get to the clinic and back to the hotel, everything is already organized. As for accommodation (hotels) when you go to Istanbul on this occasion, clinics mostly offer packages where hotels + transport around Istanbul and airport transportation and interventions are included in the price, but it is necessary to agree with the clinic in advance.

My mom and I were given an appointment for surgery which was two days after the first consultation so everything was very fast. You can use your free time to explore Istanbul.

Also a question which was repeated many times was the time which you need to spent in Istanbul during the visit. Depending on the type of intervention, the period that needs to be spent in Istanbul also depends. Calculate that plastic surgery takes between 10 and 15 days, depending on the procedure you are performing.

These were just introductory information about medical tourism, you will get all the more detailed information in my next blog post which will be dedicated to the operations that my mom and I did in Istanbul.

This post will be interesting to you as a kind of tourist guide that you can visit and see in Istanbul before and after the procedure. The operations did not slow me down too much, maybe I rested for 2-3 days and after that I went out on the street to see people and try various Turkish delights!

Everyone who goes to Istanbul for the first time is eager to explore this city and that is why they first head to Fatih, the part of the city where Hagia Sophia is located, the Blue Mosque and other sights for which Istanbul is famous. Of course, there is also the Capali Carsi in the neighborhood (the famous Grand Bazaar) where you can shop for interesting leather goods, sweets and souvenirs. When going to the Grand Bazaar, prepare your negotiating skills because Turks are known as skilled traders and bargaining is an integral part of negotiations. Take 1 to 2 days to tour this part of the city, depending on how interested you are about this kind of sights and shopping.

When you are done with the cultural uplift so that you can brag to your neighbors and friends about seeing some important sights in Istanbul, you can choose whether you are more for a shopping marathon (shopping without borders) or a cruise.

Istanbul is a promised paradise for all shopaholics, without false promises Istanbul is a place where there is a price range from the cheapest brands you can imagine, affordable jewelry and interesting things to extremely expensive things. No one was left empty-handed in this city, everyone found something for themselves and bought it, whether it was a small thing or an expensive thing.

If you are a fan of luxury fashion, and honestly your budget can’t afford it, there are more than 10 outlet shopping malls that are bigger than usual shopping centres in Germany and Europe so you can find everything your heart desires from the most famous brands from previous seasons.

The most famous outlet shopping malls are: Optimum Outlet, Viaport Outlet, Starcity Outlet.

Of course there are others, but these are with a better offer of brands. These shopping malls are located on the outskirts of the city, so get ready for an adventure in local transport. It can be an interesting and unforgettable adventure!

My hotel was close to Nisantasi, a paradise for luxury shopping where you can find all the world famous luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Berlutti, Max Mara, Gucci and others.

Currently, the choice of brands on Nisantashi has been reduced as all the big fashion houses have moved to big malls like Istinye Park, Emaar Square Mall (new mall), Kanyon Mall and Zorlu Mall.

During my last visit to Istanbul, I visited all the mentioned shopping malls, but as soon as I took out my professional camera, security guards came to warn me that photography is not allowed, so unfortunately you will be abridged the modernist beauties of luxury shopping malls in Istanbul, so you will need to feel it by yourself especially now when seasonal sales starts.

Nisantasi is a meeting place for Turkish designers, so if you happen to pay attention, you will notice numerous fashion ateliers that simply entice customers with their creations to look at their latest collections. Diamonds on the dress, no problem! Everything can be found in this city which is located at the crossroads of East and West.

Due to that fact, Istanbul has become a paradise for shopaholics from the Far and Middle East who come to Istanbul to feel the European version of the Oriental East.

Nisantasi is a popular district of Sisli district on the European side of Istanbul. It consists of settlements such as Tesvikije, Mačka, Osmanbey and Pangalti. A popular shopping and residential district, it is one of the most exclusive districts of Istanbul.

Here, as I just mentioned, you can find stores of the most famous fashion brands, department stores, cafes, pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. Abdi Ipekci Street, the most expensive shopping street in Turkey in terms of rental prices, stretches from the Macka and Tesvikiye districts to the center of Nisantasi.

The Nisantasi district is unrivaled in terms of entertainment and cultural content. High class restaurants, cafes and pubs with various additional activities. In the neighboring areas there are large shopping malls such as Cevahir Mall which can be easily reached by public transport or a short walk.

Pangalti, which connects Nisantashi with Mecidiyeköy, is full of local shops and brands. In other words, Nisantasi can give you the opportunity to enjoy prestige and luxury with the ability to have everything at your fingertips.

When I’m on Nisantasi, I always like to go down to the neighboring district of Besiktas, the area where the famous stadium of the famous Turkish club is located and the part that goes out on the Bosphorus. The water always relaxes me and I like to watch the boats and seagulls that adorn this idyllic picture of Istanbul.

Besiktas is located on the European shores of the Bosphorus. The district encompasses important landmarks along the European shores of the Bosphorus, from the Dolmabahçe Palace in the south to the Bebek area in the north.

This area is home to lesser-known neighborhoods overlooking the Bosphorus where you have the opportunity to see expensive villas in Turkish series that we love to watch. I sincerely love this district because of the opportunity to go ashore and see the boats and to enjoy the beauty of the Dolmabahçe Palace, which I sincerely advise everyone to visit when they come to Istanbul.

Although this is a relatively small district of Istanbul, both in terms of population and area, Besiktas is one of the most important areas of the city due to its business and trade zones, historical institutions, universities and of course the fabulous view of the Bosphorus and waterways.

Here on the coast you can see locals resting and fishing, all the way to those curious tourists like me who came to admire Istanbul and experience this view of Istanbul and the Bosphorus, which we only have the opportunity to see every day in favorite Turkish soap operas.

In addition to shopping, Istanbul is ideal for gourmets because Turkish cuisine is rich and their specialties are unique. If you are more of a street food lover then only three words are allowed: Doner, Börek and Simit. Doner is like Greek gyros that is made exclusively in Turkey with chicken and veal meat with various side dishes, the price of one doner portion varies from 12 to 35 lira depending on the portion size and additives.

Börek is known to everyone, pastry that you will not forget, the price of one serving of Borek is around 15 to 20 lira and finally Simit who never let me down on the street because on every corner in Istanbul you can see an interesting red stroller with bagels that currently cost 2.50 Turkish lira , about 23-25 euro cents. To understand the ratio currency, 1 euro is worth between 11 and 12 Turkish lira.

Istanbul is a city that you just have to love because it gets under your skin. It is a city that awakens a special kind of emotion in everyone. Istanbul is a city with many faces and I am sure that each of you will find at least one that you will adore. This is a city that will delight you every time you visit.

Some people say that it is necessary to come to Istanbul at least until you find at least one answer to the famous question: “Why do you love Istanbul?“.

Every good adventure has its beginning and end, so after less than 3 weeks in beautiful Istanbul it’s time to go home… This adventure was special for me because I fulfilled my greatest wishes and thank you to everyone who took the time to send quick message and to give me words of support. In a few days I will share with you my experience and what my makeover process looked like.

At the very end of this post, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my friends from Air Montenegro who made it possible for my adventure to be just perfect. I sincerely hope that we will meet soon be again and discover the world together.

I invite all travel lovers to visit the official website of the new airline Air Montenegro and book your ticket to Montenegro or some European metropolis! They say that the New Year in Montenegro is magical, it’s worth checking out!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Bric’s for their trust and look forward to being a member of the Bric’s family and I am confident that together we will embark on new adventures early next year and write some new travel pages of the Mr.M online diary!

My dear adventurers, we have come to the end of this first special post from Turkey which would not have been possible without the selfless help of Air Montenegro and Arpanu Medical Group, partners who made it possible for me to share my impressions of medical tourism in Turkey.

Time always flies when a person has a good time! A man is rich at heart if he has managed to explore the world and I am glad to always be able to find suitable partners for my projects that allow me to discover some destinations in a completely different way during this global health crisis COVID-19.

I am honored to have the opportunity to work with companies that are at the very top in each industry and I would like to thank them for this amazing adventure and for allowing me to experience the charms of Istanbul in a completely different way.

Tiziana Terenzi: Passion for Creation, Crafts and Candles

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another new post on Mr. M blog! Today, through fragrant notes, we will feel the beauty and splendor of Italy, which many consider to be the cradle of hedonism. Italy is a country that is known for fashion, craftsmanship, exceptional cuisine, wines, but also for making quality perfumes.

People say that people are close when they know their favorite fragrant notes and perfume is an ideal gift that reminds a person that they are loved and each fragrant note carries with it a certain association.

Tiziana Terenzi is an Italian family brand, a passion that has been maintained for three generations, where the love for creating and preserving crafts is something that makes this brand special. Tiziana and Paolo Terenzi decided to create a fragrant kingdom as a tribute to their father.

The inspiration for their fragrant creations is found in nature, fire, the flame of the candles, for which this brand has gained world fame. The hypnotic power and beauty of fire are always present in our lives, connecting us with great symbolic power with emotions.

Tiziana Terenzi is not just a perfume, but a true journey through emotions and memories without artistic compromises. Fragrant notes are a display of the true essence of life, including all its imperfections, tensions, inconsistencies, everything that makes life simply beautiful.

The focus is on unique creations, natural and priceless raw materials and carefully selected, because every single creation that leaves the space of the Tiziana Terenzi brand factory is a “child” of this fragrant family.

Tiziana Terenzi perfumes cannot be worn as an ordinary piece of clothing, these fragrant notes are for those people who like to indulge and allow themselves to explore some new dimensions of life, fearlessly experiencing its essence to the core. These perfumes are complex creations that are not fully revealed, they need to be felt and enjoy the beauty of the scent.

To experience a perfume with this type of fragrant structure, it takes time, patience, perseverance and wisdom. These are perfumes that do not really reveal their essence and purpose to anyone.

Who is behind this brand? As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, this fragrant realm is a story about one family.

Tiziana Terenzi, the creative director of the brand, is a professor of applied art and design. In her long career, she has had the opportunity to collaborate with numerous top jewelry brands. Her sophistication and love for “extraordinary elegance” are reflected in the extraordinary craftsmanship details of every Tiziana Terenzi perfume.

Each of the perfumes contains details of 24-carat gold, hand-made Italian glass, details of wood from rare species from the forests of Italy and leather details of the highest quality Italian leather. She achieved great success with his special fragrant collection Luna, where she expressed her skills and knowledge through lids that represent real masterpieces.

Paolo Terenzi is an extremely talented and respected Italian perfumer. An artist in his work, very unconventional, his philosophy was created to “compose beauty”. His biography is as unique as his fragrant masterpieces: a professional musician, a law graduate and a philosopher who studies chemistry and physics with unlimited imagination and a special sensibility.

Mr. Terenzi works exclusively with natural raw materials, which he collected personally on his travels around the world. In his unusual and unique collection, he uses about 300 most precious notes that he mixes to create extremely complex and sophisticated rich perfume structures.

He has collaborated with many well-known international fashion houses for years, but together with Tiziana Terenzi, he founded his own brand.

Today I will present you two perfumes from their offer: Orionis and Orion.

Orionis is a perfume from the Assoluto special collection. Assoluto is a collection created from the fire of memories and recollections, which warms and illuminates the Luna collection, inspired by mixed moments of life, precious pieces of mosaics of stars and a magical web of fantasy.

How to describe the Assoluto collection? A dreamy mix of knowledge and magic of real experiences where the result is the creation of precious drops that are reserved for people with refined taste. Stylistic perfection is achieved by handmade Italian jewelry that adorns these rare and valuable perfumes.

The perfumes that make up this collection in addition to the perfumes you can see in today’s post are: Tyl, Adhil, Dubhe, Velorum, Alioth, Lyncis.

What are the ingredients that make Tiziana Terenzi Orionis perfume so special?

  • Top notes: Saffron and Incense
  • Heart notes: Gray Amber, Musk, Patchouli
  • Base notes: Musk, Vanilla, Benzoin

With its rare oils, scarce essences and priceless molecules, Orionis is a homage to one of the brightest stars in the constellation Orion, which is a true masterpiece of this Italian luxury art perfumery.

Another perfume that won my heart is Orion, a perfume that belongs to the exclusive Luna collection, inspired by the beauty of miracles.

After more than twenty years of patient and dedicated work on finding and storing rare ingredients, the Tiziana Terenzi brand has presented the exceptional perfumes that make up this special Luna collection.

You can see all perfumes from the Luna collection at the this link.

Orion is a special perfume, intense, very strong, but also gentle. The fragrant notes of citrus make it refreshing, while the scent of pineapple and apple awakens your senses. This exceptional fragrant harmony is spiced with thyme and oregano.

What are the ingredients that make Tiziana Terenzi Orion perfume so special?

  • Top notes: Bergamot, Red Currant, Apple, Pineapple

Roja Parfums: Chypré Extraordinaire, a fragrance to remember…

My dear travelers and fashionistas, how are you today? I am sure you are doing well and you are ready to enjoy my story today. Late last year, I shared with you my experience with Roja Dove perfumes, luxurious fragrant notes that are simply impossible to forget.

If you want to remind of my reviews of Roja perfumes from my collection or want to get better acquainted with basic terms such as “Pyramid of Fragrances”, I believe this post will help you.

Today I will tell you something more about the most famous Roja perfume from the “Haute Luxe” collection that captivates all your senses – Roja Chypré Extraordinaire perfume.

The name Chypre comes from a French word meaning the famous island of Cyprus. The forerunner of today’s chypre perfumes is François Coty’s perfume, which in its original composition had perfect notes of oakmoss, labdanum and bergamot, and the name Coty Chypre perfume was created due to the need to indicate the fact that all ingredients were mostly from Mediterranean countries.

Roja Chypré Extraordinaire consists of the classic structure of Chypre – a typically woody and mossy scent that shows the subtle strength of character. This fragrant creation represents something completely new and extraordinary in the perfume world. Paying homage to the eponymous island of Cyprus, together with the unusual fragrant notes of cedar and sandalwood, it revives the beauty of Mother Nature. The extraordinary scent of bergamot is mixed with juicy and sweet peach, whose softness is recognized through the indulgent heart of creamy Tuberose, and in this way this fragrant story has a unique velvety and soft touch that inspires all your senses.

What are the ingredients that make Roja Chypré Extraordinaire so special?

  • Top Notes: Aldehydes, Bergamot
  • Heart Notes: Geranium, Rose de Mai, Orange Blossom, Jasmin de Grasse, Tuberose, Ylang Ylang, Cistus, Heliotrope, Violet, Blackcurrant Buds, Peach, Plum
  • Base Notes: Clove, Cumin, Patchouli, Moss Base, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Amber, Orris, Styrax, Leather, Civet, Musk

Mr. Roja Dove, one of the most famous perfumers in the world and the founder of the British house of fragrance Roja Parfums at the promotion of Roja Chypré Extraordinaire perfume said:

“I have a great love for Chypre perfumes. I find them convincing – their magnetic attraction is simply impossible to resist. Impeccably refined and tailor-made, they require attention and respect. These perfumes are difficult to make perfect, I love harmony and all the challenges that come with working with this type of perfume. In this fragrant composition, I combined the moss with the warmth of a classic Chypre with an unexpected bouquet of sensual white flowers and a juicy fragrant note of peach. For those who share my love for Chypre fragrances, this contrasting blend of materials is completely unexpected and also the reason why this creation is truly extraordinary. ”

Roja Parfums – A treasure of luxury fragrance notes to remember

My dear readers, welcome to another story on the Mr.M blog. Today’s story will be a little different from all the previous posts you’ve had a chance to read on my blog. I will do my best to bring you closer to an interesting kingdom of fragrant notes that remain etched in your memory…

Each of us experiences certain scents in our own way, some of them are extremely important and dear to us and we always remember them fondly. Have you perhaps heard of the term “Fragrance Pyramid”?

Each perfume has three fragrant levels of notes: top, heart and (bottom) base notes. You can feel the top fragrant note immediately after applying the perfume. At the beginning, it is very intense, but it soon disappears, and then other fragrant notes come to the fore, which take the place of the upper fragrant note. The life cycle of scents of higher quality perfumes lasts for hours, until we reach the base fragrant notes that remain on our skin for hours.

Today I present to you a part of the collection of Roja Parfums perfumes made by the eminent British perfumer Mr. Roja Dove, who is one of the world’s most respected perfume experts.

His many years of experience, passion, creativity and effort have been transformed into the perfect luxury bottles that adorn each of his creations. The Roja Parfums brand is known as the most luxurious fragrance house in the world. It is a known fact that this British brand works only with the highest quality and most expensive ingredients, which were personally chosen by Mr. Dove because of their value and unique fragrance.

From the legendary May rose, refreshing lemon and jasmine from Grasse to natural bergamot, through handmade boxes lined with real silk, perfume lids encrusted with 24-carat gold and decorated with Swarovski crystals – everything is made to meet the needs of even people with sophisticated and refined taste.

In the Roja Parfums collection you can find the best perfumes for women and men, perfumes that contain the famous Oudh (Oud perfumes), as well as unisex perfumes that can be used by both sexes due to their unique fragrant notes.

Roja Parfum De La Nuit No 2

The first perfume I had the opportunity to try from the rich Roja Parfums collection was Roja Parfum De La Nuit No 2, which belongs to the eponymous Roja perfume collection De La Nuit. There are 3 fragrant notes in this line and I opted for number two because of one specificity.

The De La Nuit perfume collection explores the way our hidden urges rarely surface during the day, but can still emerge from the shadows as the sun slowly sets. This extremely sensual set of fragrances allows us to explore the inner desires that are hidden in all of us, bringing some new seductive notes into our lives. Perfume De La Nuit No. 2 is “Seducer”, at first you may not notice the fragrant notes of bergamot, orange and lemon, but without being fully aware that you have succumbed to the power of the smell of rum and enchanting coconut.

Roja Parfum De La Nuit 2 Ingredients
  • Top Notes: Lemon, Bergamot, Orange
  • Heart Notes: Cistus
  • Base Notes: Cypriol, Patchouli, Rum, Vetiver, Guaiacwood, Tolu Balsam, Benzoin, Vanilla, Cocoa, Tonka Bean, Labdanum

The next fragrance from the Roja Parfums collection that enchanted my senses was Britannia. Britannia is a fragrance from the Roja Dove Imperial perfume line.

A fragrance that defines all the features of British creativity, Britannia is composed of ingredients from four continents. As an island nation, the British have always been researchers and have found new and exotic ingredients that have been incorporated into British traditional research creativity.

Roja Parfum Britannia

By mixing ingredients from distant exotic empires with indigenous ingredients, Britannia perfume elevates a true British sense of pride with its noble heritage, while at the same time embracing external influences. Definition of British manners, this unusual fragrance represents the embodiment of luxury in a completely different British way.

Roja Parfum Britannia Ingredients
  • Top Notes: Cedrat, Bergamot, Mandarin, Tangerine
  • Heart Notes: Rose de Mai, Jasmin de Grasse, Champaca, Heliotrope, Cassie, Violet, Peach
  • Base Notes: Cinnamon, Clove, Patchouli, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Cocoa, Orris, Ambergris, Musk
Roja Parfum Nüwa

The perfume I really wanted to have in my collection is Roja Nüwa Perfume. Like the previous Britannia perfume, it belongs to the Imperial perfume line of the fragrant house Roja Parfums.

This perfume is an oriental fragrance, rich, refreshing and soft, ideal for autumn when you need the discreet freshness provided by the flowers of the May rose and grapefruit.

Roja Nüwa perfume is inspired by the legend of NüWa, a gentle and lovely Chinese goddess who is said to have created humanity. According to one of the many myths, she taught her people to be creative and wise, introduced beauty through music, song and dance, and filled the world with flowers and incredible scents. This perfume represents the gentle harmony of May rose, jasmine and orange blossom, creating an idyllic floral song that is adorned with fragrant notes of sandalwood and vanilla.

Roja Parfum NüWa Ingredients
  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Grapefruit
  • Heart Notes: Rose de Mai, Orange Blossom, Jasmin de Grasse
  • Base Notes: Clove, Cumin, Pepper, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Vanilla, Peru Balsam
Roja Parfum Oceania

For the end, I deliberately left a perfume that really contains a refreshing scent of the ocean that instantly pierces all your senses, but there is one wonderful thing that I appreciate about Roja Parfums brand.

Mr. Dove is a big fan of the ocean and therefore a donation from every sale of Oceania perfume will be donated to charity organizations dedicated to the protection of precious waters. This fragrance opens with a wave of invigorating freshness of bergamot, lemon and mandarin. The scent of jasmine brings you a whiff of wind from a nearby island, while Sandalwood and Orris offer warm refreshing scents and the warmth of the sun, whose light is reflected on the waves of our oceans in your heart!

White teeth at home with Silk’n ToothWave!

Hello guys, how are you today? When I was younger, I kept wondering when would be the best time to start changing my daily life habits. Of course, when we decide that the time has come to change ourselves, then we start thinking in the direction of what would be best to change first.

I always tried to take care of my oral hygiene, but there was always the famous BUT moment,  this time in my case it was the whiteness of my teeth. I try to use toothpastes that will gradually whiten my teeth, but trying not to damage my tooth enamel.

Almost two months ago when I got the Silk’n ToothWave electric toothbrush I decided to give it a try. Reading the instructions manual for using and reviews on the internet, I realized that it takes 6 to 8 weeks to notice the final results.

I have to admit that I had given up using electric brushes, but due to the positive reviews of other users, I decided to give the Silk’n ToothWave electric toothbrush a chance and see if I would really get my desired results.

Because this electric toothbrush is different than other electric toothbrushes on the market. It not only removes plaque, but also reduces stains, discoloration and even tartar! So I had to try it to see if my teeth would get whiter or not.

When I started using this toothbrush the first thing I noticed was the softness of the brush head and the unusual silence mode. I admit, because of my problems with sensitive gums, I really liked it, but I wondered if this toothbrush would really be able to clean my teeth. As week by week passed, I finally noticed the results that I wanted to reach!

My gums are very sensitive and I used to notice blood during brushing my teeth before, but after I started using the Silk’n ToothWave electric toothbrush, I noticed that my gums had hardened and there was no more bleeding. In just six weeks, I was able to whiten my teeth and remove tartar from my teeth.

For me, this was a wonderful experience because I got exceptional and incomparable results with Silk’n ToothWave than it was with the previous toothbrushes I used. My teeth were cleaner for a long time during the day and I didn’t need to use chewing gum to avoid collecting food after a meal.

My co-workers thought I was crazy, but over time they realized that I was only thrilled with the results because they all knew about my obsession with whitening my teeth. At the end of this post you can see my results before and after using Silk’n ToothWave electric toothbrush. Silk’n ToothWave works with the special DentalRF™ technology which is able to remove plaque and reduce stains, discolouration and tartar with mild radio frequency waves.

The only thing you need to do is to be patient and set aside just four minutes of your time each day and let the Silk’n ToothWave toothbrush do its job.

Actually, you don’t have to change your dental cleaning routine at all, because all of us brush our teeth two minutes a day. So just replacing your old toothbrush with Silk’n ToothWave is the way to go!

This electric toothbrush has three speeds and modules of use, with the help of the user manual that comes with the brush, you will see how you can properly use this incredible brush and clean your teeth nice and easy.

As I previously said, you can choose between 3 vibration speeds modules. At its highest vibration speed, the electric toothbrush makes up to 48,000 vibrating brush strokes per minute. But the real deal is the DentalRF™ technology that really makes a difference in the way your teeth look and feel.

The smart timer also reminds you every 30 seconds to switch to the next area of your mouth. The electric toothbrush switches off automatically after 2 minutes of use. Best of all, Silk’n ToothWave is also waterproof, so you can use it in the shower or in the bath if you are in a hurry for work or some meeting, believe me I also had those situations.

You can buy Silk’n ToothWave at several online shops:

  1. Silk’n official online shop
  2. Boots.com
  3. Amazon
  4. Currentbody.com

Another Letter from London: Somewhere Between Rain and Wind…

My dear travellers, how are you today? I really hope that you’re doing great, because today I have a special post about London! I have not written posts on the blog for almost a month and I have to admit that this was hard time for me. Before I start with today’s post, I would like to take the opportunity to apologize for the unexpected break due to health problems and press trips where I was further “exhausted” so I failed to recover. For a month, I almost have a cold that I have not managed to heal completely because I was so active, instead of sleeping at my home and drinking some warm drinks like tea… Well, in the end, you never know why it’s good!

Many of you wrote to me on social networks and on the email when I will publish new posts and why I’m not active on the blog? All of you who follow my work know how much I love my blog, but sometimes some unexpected situations happen and I can not achieve everything at once. I promise that we will be hanging out more often this month, and believe me this pause on the blog may be good because you don’t know how amazing new interesting  posts I’ve prepared just for you guys!

Why did I get sick (again)?! Because in the past few weeks, I changed few countries, few totally different climate and time zones so I lost many hours of healthy “beauty” sleep and believe me it’s not good at all! Turkey, Russia, and England totally three different climates, time zones that it’s completely normal that if you’re getting sick on this trip, you just need to start praying to God that you can not return to even more sickness… What happened to me, of course, while I’m writing this post the best friends of mine today are the drops of nose, wipes and a tea. Great!

London was the last stop on this special European “cruise”, you are wondering why I did not start in chronological order like any normal blogger usually do… I think this time has won this little love for the English capital which I had the opportunity to visit in January of this year and I already knew that I’m going to visit again this year, but I did not know exactly when…

This time I had a little more time, full three days, so it’s much better than 48 hours! Believe me when you’re sick, 72 hours looks like an eternity to you. The worst thing that can happen to you when traveling is to GET SICK! The biggest damage is that you came to enjoy and discover something new, but your organism obviously has some other plans for you… Finally, my crazy personality won, so I cried in the room at night with the high temperature, and during the day I was playing a role of the real “Londoner”.

Now I have one “serious” question for you guys, listen up! When you are traveling, do you like to “put in” your schedule and Sunday as well or do you like to avoid this day? Usually people when they plan to travel, they tend to be from Wednesday to Sunday or Thursday to Sunday. Simply, just to have little time to get ready for a new working week. In my case, when I have possibility to arrange my trip, I like to spend that famous day in a certain destination.

Of course, for some it is not interesting at all, but a big metropolis like London, central core on Sunday is almost empty, I know it well because the true British people love to spend their free time at fairs, which are related to the lifestyle itself (food, sweets, teas and other deacons).

I spent this beautiful Sunday on the streets in the heart of London because I like to see nice things, no matter that in 90% of cases I have no financial opportunities to follow these trends, but I always like to see beautiful things and get some inspiration.  Sunday is my favorite day for me in London, because I have all the streets for myself, there is no crowd and I can pretty much look around the shop windows… Lucky me! 🙂

London is a city that is famous for its climate because of the rain and probably you will have more chances to see the Queen in the supermarket buying a bread, rather than a beautiful and sunny day. London as a city is very beautiful and does not bother me personally when it’s cold, rainy and even foggy because in London you can always do something interesting. The only thing I do not like is their obsession for renovating of the building, so every time I visit London always, but literally I always find some London symbol covered as it is being renovated, as you can see in the picture above… Thank God and the Germans do not like so much to renovate , otherwise I would be crazy already…

In the picture above, you can see the most visited place and best spot for the photos if you want to show people that you finally visited London! Who was not in London before, has the feeling that the Picardy Circus Square is so big and reminds a little of New York, but after that same person come to London and realize that this is a big misconception and that Piccadilly Circus such a small square, but that does not mean that it is not beautiful… You should not be blind and to believe to the pictures at IG, because you can disappoint yourself later.

Let me now return to the beginning of this adventure of my travels which started with a trip to Turkey where I had the opportunity to work with the world airline company Turkish Airlines where I met the culture of Eastern Turkey, once again I had an amazing ride with the train after the adventure in India, with a famous train in Turkey that received the label “Turkish Orient Express” – Dogu Express, I meet new colleagues, made some new friends from the Balkan and Eastern Europe region. After this adventure I went to Russia, and as you see, Turkish Airlines has followed me everywhere. I can not wait to share with you all my impressions from Turkey!

Well, I know well that I turned off the topic again, but what to do when I am too much creative and childish and always I want to share with you as much as I can, so I love to write! I like this part of London because I know that I’m getting closer to my most favorite building in London, located in Regent Street at No. 121… That’s the biggest Burberry shop, I like to say the biggest Burberry department store in the world!

The most famous British fashion brand Burberry has captured the hearts of their loyal fans around the world with their eternal elegance and classic trenches and coats, but also Burberry print also became synonym of England and the United Kingdom in general. A fashion story lasting more than 150 years continues to intrigue the world. That’s why, a few years ago, they opened a unique Regent 121 store where literally they have everything, but EVERYTHING! You need some runway model of trench? limited collection of scarves? This is the place for you! Each time I visit this store, my heart just wants to jump out because it would like to take everything home, but of course we come to the real border of reality and the dreams where you realize that if you succeed to buy just one thing, you will bring with you Part of England.

As far as I’m concerned, they could lock me up here to sleep, I would not be upset at all, I do not think I would sleep at all and I would suffer from chronic insomnia because of such nice things here… I think Burberry should consider my proposal to be the part of ” live “inventory of their fashion family and that would be my happy end for me!

During this visit to London, I thought at least a million times: “God, why my photographer doesn’t apply for a visa of UK!”. All this because of these almost half-empty streets that would be ideal for making some photos, but I didn’t have anyone to take some photos of me. On the other hand, how I was ill maybe at least I hid a little my “perfect” look at the moment because of huge fatigue and exhaustion.

The photo which you see above came from the need to try to take the photo of a gentleman who you can see on the other side of the street with red jacket because I liked the jacket very much and I was convinced that it was the same red jacket that I saw on the previous day at a sale in a department store, but it was not my size… Of course, when it was on 70% discount and when I wasn’t the lucky one to get it, but at least this picture turned out fantastic! As I wrote at the beginning of this post: “I believe that everything in life happens for a reason!”.

This building called Liberty House will always remain in my memory when I once was with a friend in London and when we found ourselves near this unusual department store I said that it would be good to check if they have the jacket from the brand that was on some big discount in another shop, she was so horrified and she just had strength to answer: “Marko, how can you look for a jacket in the museum, do you see that is a house in a famous tudor style ?! You’re crazy! “. A few minutes later she was convinced that it was an unusual department store so she did not want to talk to me for a couple of hours because she felt some sort of a shame. ?

My dear travellers once again we have come to the end of our travel adventure. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! This post will be my first for this month and there are lot posts to come soon. See you next week, with some new interesting stories!

At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from the London City Tourism Board, my friends from Sony who have challenged me again to use new little monster Xperia XZ3, new member of Sony Xperia family. All the pictures that you saw today in this post were created with the help of my new little friend Sony Xperia XZ3 and I began to think that I no longer need to carry the camera on the trip with me. This was a unique opportunity to introduce you a little better with a lifestyle of the city like London and I hope I’m going to visit soon one of my favorite cities in Europe.
