geox nebula - perfect for comfort and style!

Considering our feet have to take so much, they are often neglected.  I do not compromise when it comes to my feet.  The one thing that I invest in is shoes.  I will cheap out on clothes, but when it comes to my feet, I research and am willing to spend a good amount of money.

Over the years, I have had my lot of feet pain.  I have had a few injuries, back pain, and not wearing the right shoes exacerbated that pain. So a day out walking around, exploring the city, or shopping and more importantly doing immense amount of walking while traveling, was torture!

About 10 years ago I decided that I couldn't let my pain get in the way of enjoying my everyday life. So from then on, I have taken serious interest in what shoes I wear. And let me tell you, it's life changing! as in I can walk around all day and still have no pain. It means me walking the streets of Rome or the seawall in Vancouver, and actually enjoying it!

Geox is a brand that I had heard of here and there and knew that COMFORT was synonymous with the brand.

But let me tell you partnering up with Geox was eye opening - as in, what was life before the NEBULA by Geox? I don't know where I have been living!

I was in need of new trainers, my old ones were done. My struggle was that I wanted my trainers to be both stylish and comfortable.

I was so glad to have discovered the NEBULA by Geox and I cannot describe this shoe better than they do themselves:

"Resulting from the fusion of a modern design with maximum comfort, Nebula represents the peak of GEOX technology.

Designed for travelling the world, perfect for any season, they naturally adapt to every movement of the foot. This is the perfect shoe for those who love to travel with style and personality, without compromising on comfort. Wearing them is like walking on a cloud."

here is the thing, yes the NEBULA shoes by GEOX are stylish, and go great with my mostly casual look, but the thing that sold me was how passionate they are about the technology that goes into the shoe to make it Comfortable, Breathable, and Adaptable to different Feet.

When you wear the shoes the efficacy of the technology becomes evident - no exaggeration here but it feels like you are walking on a cloud. The shoe itself is so lightweight.  and the best part about the ones I have - the top of the shoe is water resistant and the sole is waterproof - which makes it perfect for the rainy Vancouver weather!

 I am amazed by the technology of this shoe,  the net breathing system and  the inner breathing system allows for 360 breathability along with temperature regulation, but what  blows me away is the comfort! I have worn them out on a day of running errands and long walks, and my feet love them! In fact I have worn them out for an outing with  friends, well because they go so well with my casual look - like this denim jacket and baseball cap!

 honestly, if you are looking for comfort and style, hands down GEOX takes the win! I cannot tell you how many friends and family members I have recommended this pair of shoes to!

My lovely day in kew gardens








In all of my time being a resident and visitor of London, I have never been to Kew gardens. So because it was one of my good friends Sonum's favourite places and because I love flowers, trees and gardens we blocked off a whole day for it. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. In fact, we found ourselves comfortably lost in the gardens with something awe-inspiring at every wrong turn and off the track path we chose.

My favourite part in particular was the good half an hour we spent trying to climb a tree ( perhaps illegally...not really sure about the rules on this...oops..?) and miserably failed at. Climbing a tree used to be so much easier as a kid but I swear I'm more fit now, so I don't know how that works? We also spent a long time trying to make our way to the tree top section of the gardens but kept getting sidetracked by something else and before we knew it the park was closing...so I guess I've left that for next time!

My friend Sonum also painted me a floral painting that I asked her to make of my personality and it is definitely spot on. We ended the day in Shoreditch eating at Dishoom--a must try Indian restaurant. I had heard a lot about this place and the amazing food that they serve up and when we actually got around to having it I'm not going to lie it lived up to the hype and the design concept is also excellent.

My day trip to oxford was like nothing had changed (except my stress levels)










The last time I was in Oxford, I was writing the hardest final exam of my life, wearing silly harry potter clothes called subfusc, graduating with a Masters in a ceremony conducted in basically all latin, and emotionally saying goodbye to some of the best friends I have made and some of the best times I have had, all associated with the lovely buildings and natural surroundings of this beautiful city campus that has been around since the 1100s.

This time around, my friend (and old Oxford flatmate, O the many nights of despair have we shared) Nila and I, went back for a day trip and visited our friend from my program Richard. I thought that in my memory I had embellished just how beautiful and wonderful Oxford actually is but I was wrong and it was so much better than I remember it...with just as many tourists! I think the reason for this was that this time I was there and I wasn't stressed, underslept, overworked, exhausted and anxious--you know, all the things that go along with trying to survive an intense Masters program. It was a little bitter sweet though, as it was weird to be a visitor in a place you once called home. And while the Alumni card gives your perks and still gets you into your old college and other places and gems other people can't go, it was sad walking past my old home and not being able to go in.

All in all it was a great day which started at the Pitt Rivers, moved onto our old college Lincoln, Christ Church meadows and ended with a must have penne arrabiata from Gino's (a family run pasta place tucked away from the touristy area that we ate at far too many times that the family knew us all very well).
