Have the most instagrammable ski holiday in Ötztal, Austria

*Collaborative post.

Ski in style and stay in the most luxurious ski apartments in the Tyrol region in the lovely Ötztal valley. If you are looking for both an unforgettable and Instagram-worthy winter experience, this is the place to be.

 

Why Ötztal?

The Ötztal Valley is incredibly picturesque with perfect powder slopes and snow-capped peaks. According to the Otztal Tourism website, it offers everything to make any skier’s dream come true – 6 ski areas, two glacier mountains and more than 350 slope kilometres. For non-skiers, there are also many activities to fulfil your winter wonderland fantasy, from winter hiking to ice skating on a frozen lake.

Hint: Don’t forget to visit the small village of Oetz tucked away on the south of the valley, an enchanting village with beautifully painted buildings that offers the best of Austrian hospitality.

Where to sleep?

To have the ultimate experience, I’d recommend staying at luxury ski apartments in Otztal at the All-Suite resort. These are highly flexible apartments where you only pay for what you really need. For instance, if you are too tired to cook after a long day of skiing, indulge yourself at their Delis Bistro & Grill. Alternatively, if you want to cook your own meals, each apartment comes equipped with state-of-the-art appliances to give you the luxury of a hotel in the comfort of your holiday home.

For the cherry on top of the cake, by staying at these apartments you will have access to their luxurious spa centre where you can unwind at the heated pools and enjoy the scenic mountain views at the same time. The spa centre has indoor and outdoor heated pools, natural bathing ponds, saunas and relaxation areas. Scrap the ski, this is where I’d spend my holiday.

Read 52 books a year challenge

*Affiliate links and Collaborative post.

Last year, I read 52 books and I couldn’t believe I actually smashed my reading goals! The plan was to read a book a week, and share the title of the book on social media every week. I was ahead on some weeks, and some weeks I was so behind. The year ended with me not be able to share the names of the last 4 books I read last year, because it was a 6 in 1 book, and there was no time to share all of them during the festive period when I was pretty much offline. I enjoyed the reading challenge.

The books I read are all non-fiction, and each book teaches me something new. I am glad I enjoy reading so much. It is one of the last things I do before I go to sleep. I enjoy reading a good book on my Amazon Kindle before dozing off on my king size bed. It is a super relaxing way to end the day. I sleep better when I read prior to dozing off!

I think having a comfy bed also helps and I recommend you check out King size beds from Bed Guru. Quality sleep is very important for your wellbeing, which is why you need to pay special attention to your bed, bedding and your night routine.

 

Read 52 books a year challenge

I am starting off the year with this amazing book – Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide to Evading Relationships That Drain You and Restoring Your Health and Power by Christiane Northrup. It is a great book that teaches you how to protect yourself as an empath. I have learnt some new tips and I will be trying them in the next few days. The book is packed with so many wise words, it is definitely worth a read.

Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide to Evading Relationships That Drain You

Here is a brief description of the book –

In Dodging Energy Vampires, Christiane Northrup, M.D., draws on the latest research in this exciting new field, along with stories from her global community and her own life, to explore the phenomenon of energy vampires and show us how we can spot them, dodge their tactics, and take back our own energy. You’ll delve into the dynamics of vampire-empath relationships and discover how vampires use others’ energy to fuel their own dysfunctional lives. Once you recognize the patterns of behavior that mark these relationships, you’ll be empowered to identify the vampires in your life too.

 

 

I finished reading this book and I am now reading another book from the best-selling author. This is my second book of the year and it is titled – Making Life Easy. It is a great read so far. I am seriously learning from Christiane Northrup, and I can’t wait to finish the book! It is filled up with wise words for healthy living on every page. A must read for every woman, if you ask me.

Making Life Easy

Here is a brief description of the book –

Dr. Northrup explores the essential truth that has guided her ever since medical school: our bodies, minds, and souls are profoundly intertwined. Making life flow with ease, and truly feeling your best, is about far more than physical health; it’s also about having a healthy emotional life and a robust spiritual life. When you view your physical well-being in isolation, life can become a constant battle to make your body “behave.” When you acknowledge the deep connection between your beliefs and your biology and start to tune in to the Divine part of yourself, it’s a whole new ballgame —and the first step in truly making your life easy.

 

 

I am looking forward to the 50 other books I will be reading on my Amazon Kindle this year. What are you reading? Are you doing the read 52 books a year challenge?

 

Send Money Overseas with Paysend

*Sponsored by Paysend, use offer code STELLA for one free transfer.

I remember growing up in Nigeria and how difficult it was to send and receive money from country to country. We had to rely on middlemen and reference codes and numbers to get money across and from loved ones. It took a lot of time and multiple phone calls to get this done. I am glad this is no longer the case. It is now so simple to send and receive money abroad thanks to companies like Paysend. For those who have never heard of Paysend, it is a money transfer platform that allows you to send funds from card to card, or from bank account to bank account to over 70 countries. Headquartered in the UK, Paysend is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Paysend has a global 24/7 online support so help is always available.

Send Money Overseas with Paysend

Here is how my experience was with sending money to Nigeria with Paysend and why you should use this money transfer service –

It is secure

Some days ago, I decided to send money to Nigeria through Paysend. The whole process took me a few minutes and it was seamless. The first thing I did was to set up an account on the Paysend website with my details. Once that was done and my email address was verified, I could start sending money. To sign in, all you need to do is to type in your mobile phone number. Once that is done, you get a text with a security code to sign in. I love the sign in process as the security code bit gives me an extra piece of mind. The process feels a lot safer than just a regular password.

 

The rates are good

I sent money to Nigeria from my bank account to another bank account so there were no additional fees. However, if you are sending to a bank card, the fee is a flat £1, €1.50 or $2 . The process was very straightforward. All I had to do was type in the recipient bank details and the money was sent. The exchange rate was good as well. I compared it with other websites, and the rate I got from Paysend was the highest so their rates are quite competitive.

 

It is easy to use

Paysend is such an amazing money transfer service. I am glad it is now available for when I need to send money abroad. The fact that I can send money on their website or Paysend App on my iPhone makes it super convenient. This is one money transfer service I can see myself using over and over again. Paysend makes sending money as easy as ordering takeaway! The platform definitely takes the stress out of sending money to family and friends in Nigeria and beyond.
