TRAVEL: exploring Zadar & Nin

It’s been a little quiet around here, because I decided to actually (like really!) take a few days off for our short get-away to Croatia. Most days I didn’t even as much as touch my laptop and it felt amazing. Fueled up with energy and with tons of pictures for you guys, I am back in Vienna today, ready to tell you guys all about our past 5 days. On Thursday, we left Vienna at 1am and headed south towards Zadar. It was Mike’s crazy idea to drive all night in order to be in the sun by breakfast. While I felt like I was in a coma for most of the drive, he got us to the Falkensteiner Resort & Spa Iadera (detailed hotel review will follow) safe and sound by 7am.

CRAVINGS: shorts, please!

Those that follow along on Instagram (@vickyheiler) have probably seen that I am currently in Croatia, enjoying a few days off and lots of sunshine. When I was packing for this trip on Wednesday, I noticed that while I have plenty of espadrilles and bathing suits, my closet does not offer too many options when it comes to shorts. Which is what I am currently craving. Last year, I got a pair of One Teaspoon denim shorts, which I have been wearing a lot, and last week, I ordered this pair by Cameo, which I think would also work for meetings. I definitely want another pair of One Teaspoon shorts, but also need shorts that can be worn to the office.

HEALTHY LIVING: detox round 2

It has been almost exactly 6 months since the last time Kathi and I detoxed (check out our detox diary HERE), and in order kick-off the bikini season with a little help, we decided to go for round 2! Unfortunately, our schedules are so busy right now, that we were only able to squeeze in a 3-day juice cleanse, but I guess a 3-day cleanse is better than a no-day-cleanse, right? Since the last time around went fairly smooth for me (I didn’t get hungry at all during the 5 days and felt pretty good, even made it to the gym once), I decided to step it up a notch this time around and went for the Super Green Delight.

OUTFIT: resort style attire

After (almost) finishing my entire to-do list today, I am ready to pack for Croatia tomorrow. So excited to head south towards some sunshine! Since Summer has been m.i.a. here in Vienna and temperatures even dropped down to 13°C over the weekend, a suitcase full of summery clothes is making me pretty happy right now. In anticipation of our trip, I threw on my personal take on “resort style attire” with white palazzo pants, a straw hat (my favorite item of the season) and an ocean mist colored bag.
By the way, if you guys have any recommendations (food, islands, beaches, …) for the area of Zadar, Croatia – please share!
