The ExpatWoman 10 Day Photo Challenge

Are you a blogger, social media addict or an #ExpatWoman? Join in our new 10 day photo challenge and share your expat journey with us.

Blogging is a love of many people around the world, and is especially great for expats who live around the world to show their adventures and journey in their new countries.

A huge part of the blogging world also includes social media, which is undeniably a powerful tool to help connect each and every one of us to people with similar likes, interests and in the same place... Even members of the #ExpatWoman team are active bloggers and social media addicts.

It's September... Where has this year gone?

September is upon us, and with it comes a new academic year, fresh ideas, plans and a welcomed back to routine. It doesn't matter if you work or not, or you're a parent or not, everyone gets the feeling this time of year... Heads down, smart heads on. Summer's over. 
Schools have re-opened, and hundreds of thousands of students around the world head for the classroom and lecture hall. We're sure, like here in Dubai, traffic has picked up around the place during rush hour too? So folks, please take care on the roads wherever you are!

To help your child(ren) get settled back into their education, follow our ExpatWoman Back to School Guide, which includes tips on reintroducing a bed time, homework help and even handling those dreaded hairlice... Yuck!

Roaring about raw food

I am not a nutritionist by any means, though I do like to educate myself on a healthy lifestyle. I have never been one for counting calories or eliminating the amount of food I intake (I love food too much), but I am cautions of what type of foods I eat.

I am always looking up what’s good for you, what’s bad for you, what food will naturally give me energy or help me sleep. I think the reasons I do this is so I can make the most of life, and I enjoy eating foods that make me feel good on the inside.

So while I have been having my green tea in the morning and my chamomile tea at night I keep reading all about eating RAW. All I see on blogs and websites that promote healthy lifestyles is we have to eat RAW. It’s better for our bodies if we eat RAW. What is eating RAW?
