My personal diary #atthemoxy:

The weekend had finally arrived and so did the big day! I have been looking forward to this Saturday for weeks already. Both excited and a bit nervous, I closed my eyes and imagined how it will look and what it will feel like. What is the big surprise? Last Saturday, after many years, the time came that I finally renewed my old eye tattoo – and all for a charity and good cause at the stylish Moxy Frankfurt East.

Let the adventure begin!

I packed my weekender the night before, curious about this playful hotel that everyone is taking about. I have driven past it a few weeks ago, admiring the golden facade of the bold and edgy building design. As I prepared hours before, it took me a while to decide which was the perfect outfit to wear on such a fabulous occasion. I knew that Moxy has a lot of pink elements in their hotel, therefore I decided on a chic pink cocktail dress with black over-knee boots. I topped off the look with my black feather fascinator, which I acquired on a wild Berlin trip and signature eye gloves.

When I woke up on Saturday, I felt like a naughty excited child on Christmas morning! I really love sleeping in nice hotels, even more so when it’s in my own city. Why not take a little break and make a mini holiday in the city you live in? What a novel concept! Therefore I decided to check in earlier and enjoy my day in bed at the Moxy Frankfurt East before the excitement and event started. After all my months of hard work, this was relaxation at its best.

I ordered a taxi and I couldn’t believe what arrived to pick me up. It was like being in a movie, because I have never seen a taxi like this before! A Porsche Panamera taxi was standing in front of my door. Now this is what I call driving in style. If the day has started out like this, then I knew right away that it would be one hell of an amazing weekend! I felt like a rock star being driven to my castle – simply awesome.

This was my first time inside the Moxy Frankfurt East, so I didn’t know what to expect. As I walked in, I was in awe of the space. I love this industrial, raw style with very high ceilings. It reminded me of the lofts studios I so adore in my hometown Toronto. The layout is great because the check-in is integrated into the bar area, giving it a very social, free-spirited and youthful feeling. The ground floor is really big, with many sitting and cozy lounging areas, along with a creative hub working space and dining area.

I could feel the buzz and excitement all around me. The staff was very friendly and checked me into my room within minutes. No waiting and no stress. I was welcomed with a delectable custom made cocktail and a crispy delicious diavola pizza – what more can I want on a Saturday afternoon? The Moxy Frankfurt East matches my requirements not only due to their superb service and efficiency, but also the dynamic and bold style. I know that this hotel will have a huge success because the rooms are perfectly priced with a good size. This gives everyone the chance to sleep in a designer boutique-feel hotel and afford it as well – the perfect concept!

I took the elevator to the 7th floor and had to laugh out loud when I saw the crazy surprise. The entire door of my room was covered with a “Crime Scene – Do Not Cross!” tape, like that of a real crime scene. What a wildly creative approach. Of course that made me want to open the door even faster! Stepping inside was like entering an unpredictable Fairytale. The wall was covered with a huge photo of a sensual woman covered in pink paint. The bed was decorated with feathers, a pink sequence party hat and the craziest of all – pink furry handcuffs with the keys beside them! There were bold slogans written all over the walls and many eclectic records around a pink record player. I have never seen anything like this before! What I adore is attention to details – and this Moxy hotel is definitely an expert in that.

The evening was approaching and my excitement was escalating! I got ready in my amazing room and was pleasantly surprised by the good quality hair products and the large shower. My hair needs a lot of care and thankfully the conditioner and dryer were top standard. I put on my sexy pink dress, left my crime scene room and joined the big party downstairs.

The DJ was in full swing with his mesmerizing sound and people were enjoying their creative cocktails by the sleek bar. Christian Henzler, captain of the Moxy Frankfurt East greeted me warmly and the Inktastic tattoo team was ready to go with their setup in the lobby. The people were lining up to get their artwork done live at the party. What I love about this event is that it’s all for charity. All of the proceedings go to the Kinder PalliativTeam Südhessen – therefore this was such an important event for me to attend and the perfect place and time to get my tattoo renewed. My photographer arrived in perfect time because it was my turn. I won’t lie, I was super nervous. The tattoo artist Zon reassured me that everything will be good and he was right. It didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would and the end results were absolutely stunning! I was so impressed with the precision and definition of his fine work – nothing compared to the dull thing I had on my shoulder when I arrived in the afternoon. I haven’t felt this happy in ages! What a fantastic feeling that everything worked out perfectly, even beyond my expectations.

If you’re curious, see my live tattoo video on my YouTube channel here:

I don’t know if it was the adrenaline after the tattoo, the delicious tequila drinks mixed with the dynamic Moxy atmosphere, but this was one of the best Saturdays I had in 2017! The cocktails were made to perfection with many unique and fresh ingredients. I had my dancing boots on and couldn’t stop dancing the entire evening. We took many photos and the queue for the tattoos was getting longer and longer. It seems like everyone in the city was there to get a wicked new tattoo that night – incredible!

I’m so thrilled that we raised a good amount for the Kinder PalliativTeam Südhessen. This is a very important cause. Feel free to donate as well:


All around the bar area were sweets and delicious candies that one could pack in a bag and take to go. So of course I was hanging around the candy area most of the night. I think that no matter how old we become, that part will never leave our heart and soul. It was getting very late but nobody wanted to leave. The event was going strong and everyone was having the time of their lives. I simply adore Frankfurt – my small cosmopolitan city with a big attitude – and once again I saw how the Frankfurters love to party. The bar area at the Moxy Frankfurt East is an ideal place to have after-works drinks, even if one is not sleeping at the hotel. It’s located on the Hanauer Landstraße, which is the creative and artistic part of the city, perfect for having some after work fun.

As I came back into my room and looked around, I saw how perfectly everything matched. This is what I call style, class, state-of-the-art design with confidence – exactly how I like it. I jumped into the comfortable bed and felt like sleeping on a cloud. I smiled at how perfect this weekend was. I can definitely say that this is one Saturday that I shall never forget. I will always have my magical eye tattoo on my back reminding me of how much fun we had.

Thank you dear Moxy Frankfurt East and Inktastic for having me there. I enjoyed every moment with you and will be back for more!


Wie man an heißen Sommertagen cool bleibt

Wie man an heißen Sommertagen cool bleibt 1365 2048 Galia Brener

1. Lass die Sonne draußen!

Auch wenn du dich darüber freust, die Sonne endlich wiederzusehen, solltest du verhindern, dass sie direkt in dein Zimmer scheint und den Raum aufheizt. Halte deine Jalousien oder Vorhänge über den Tag geschlossen um das Aufheizen zu verhindern.

Zwischen 10 und 17 Uhr solltest du Sonnenstrahlen vermeiden, verwende zusätzlich Sonnencreme, um dich vor den Strahlen zu schützen. Diese können nämlich für dich und deine Haut sehr gefährlich werden. Ganz nebenbei: Gebräunte Haut ist nicht wichtiger als deine Gesundheit!


2. Essen

Vermeide es, besonders große Portionen zu essen, da dein Körper sich während dem Verdauungsvorgang aufwärmt.

Ich lebe nach der Regel „Das letzte Essen kommt immer vor 18 Uhr“. Dadurch ermögliche ich es meinem Körper, alles Gegessene vor dem Schlafen gehen zu verdauen. Das bewirkt neben einem angenehmeren Schlaf auch die bessere Kontrolle des Körpergewichtes.

Für alle, die es scharf mögen: Scharfes Essen hat an heißen Tagen einen entscheidenden Vorteil. Zunächst gleicht sich die gestiegene Körpertemperatur der Umgebungstemperatur an und der Blutdruck steigt, was zu verstärktem Schwitzen führt. Aufgrund des Schweißes kühlt der Körper dann schneller ab und ihr kommt auch bei heißen Temperaturen gut durch den Tag.


3. Bleib cool

Wasche deine Handgelenke und Füße vor dem Schlafen mit kaltem Wasser. Alternativ kann auch ein Eisbad für die Füße sehr entspannend sein. Die Füße und ganz besonders die Sohlen sind sehr empfindlich, weshalb der Temperaturwechsel sich schnell bemerkbar machen wird.

Benutze Kühlpacks oder Eiswickeln am Nacken, den Gelenken, den Ellenbogen oder unter dem Knie, um deinen Körper abzukühlen.


4. Sport

Wenn du regelmäßig Sport machst, solltest du deine Trainingszeit auf den frühen Morgen oder den späten Abend verlegen, vermeide Sport am Mittag. Sollte dein Trainingsraum oder Fitnessstudio eine Klimaanlage haben ist eine Trainingseinheit mittags auch möglich.

Sport mit direkter Sonneneinstrahlung ist keine gute Idee, im schlimmsten Fall bekommst du dadurch einen Hitzeschock, der für dich und deine Gesundheit sehr gefährlich werden kann.


5. Achte auf die richtige Kleidung

An warmen Tagen solltest du lockere Kleidung aus Baumwolle oder Leinen tragen, idealerweise in hellen Farben. Die helle Farbe reflektiert das Licht effektiver als dunkle, während die lockere Kleidung aus natürlichem Material bessere Luftzirkulation ermöglicht und so den Körper besser kühlt.


6. Ventilatoren

Stelle etwas Eis direkt vor den Ventilator! Das Eis kühlt die Umgebungsluft und der Ventilator verbreitet die kalte Luft im gesamten Raum. Für unterwegs kannst du dir einen kleinen Ventilator besorgen, den du mit deinem Smartphone steuern kannst.

Schirm-Ventilatoren sind nicht nur praktisch an warmen Tagen, einige Modelle laden sich durch Solar-Panel sogar selbst wieder auf. Sogenannte „Bedfans“ helfen dir dabei den Raum während der Nacht zu kühlen.


7. Abkühlen und Einfrieren

Kühle deinen Bett- und Kissenbezug vor dem ein paar Stunden vor dem Schlafen gehen. Außerdem kannst du Cremes und Lotionen im Kühlschrank lagern, um dich beim Eincremen zu pflegen und Abzukühlen.

Atme mit deinem Mund in einen mit Eis gefüllten Becher. Kalte Luft einatmen wirkt Wunder!

Fülle eine Wärmflasche mit kaltem Wasser und friere sie ein. Wenn du dann schlafen gehst, kannst du die Flasche mit ins Bett nehmen und an die Gelenke oder Knie legen, um deinen Körper zu kühlen.


8. Trinken – Der wichtigste Punkt!

Wenn du viel schwitzt, verlierst dein Körper viel Wasser, was zu einem Erschöpfung oder einem Hitzeschlag führen kann – also trink viel!

Ich empfehle mindestens 8 Gläser Wasser, Tee und Co. zu trinken: Das hilft, die Körpertemperatur zu regulieren. Vermeide Alkohol, an heißen Tagen ist dieser nicht besonders hilfreich. Habe immer etwas Wasser bereit, falls du Durst bekommst!


Gali’s Drink Tipp:

Ich teste seit ungefähr drei Wochen den Pure Tea von Pfanner und bin sehr überzeugt. Ihr wisst, ich bin sehr pingelig was meine Getränke angeht, von daher war ich sehr überrascht und begeistert als ich sah, dass der Tee 0 Kalorien, 0 Gramm Zucker und keine Form von Süßstoff beinhaltet.

Immer nur Wasser trinken ist mir einfach zu langweilig, deshalb ist der Pure Tea die ideale Alternative für mich.

Der Pure Tea ist die Erfrischungslösung für heiße Tage, auf die ich und sicherlich auch viele von euch gewartet haben. Es gibt ihn in einer schicken, kurvigen Flasche, was das Halten und Tragen vereinfacht. Er schmeckt sehr angenehm und ist gut zu trinken.

Probiert es selbst!

Staying “Oh-So-Cool” on Hot Summer Days



• Even though the sun is beautiful, it must be shut out of the room in order to stay cool. Keep your shutters, blinds and curtains closed during the day. This will prevent your room from overheating.

• It’s very important to avoid direct sun exposure from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m and always leave the house with 50 SFP sunblock. The sunrays are very harmful and your skin must always be protected. Being tanned is out.



• Eat small meals regularly, because your body warms up while it works harder to digest large meals.

• I always follow my “Last Meal Before 6 p.m.” rule. This allows my body to fully digest everything that I have eaten throughout the day, leaving my stomach relaxed and happy when I sleep. This also helps to keep my weight in balance.

• For those who like it hot: eating spicy foods makes you sweat by increasing your body’s temperature, matching it with the one outside. This also increases the blood circulation and due to the sweating, you will cool down within an hour or two.



• Wash your wrists and feet with cold water before going to bed. An ice bath for your feet is also very effective. The soles of your feet are highly sensitive, therefore the temperature change will cool you off immediately!

• Apply cold compresses and ice packs and to pulse points at the neck, wrists, elbows, ankles and behind the knees.



• Do your sports only early in the morning or later in the evening, but never in between – unless it’s in an air-conditioned gym.

• Don’t ever work out directly in the sun, it can lead to heat stroke – which is lethal and can cause death or damage to the brain and other internal organs.



• Wear only cotton, loose clothing and light colors on hot days. There is a reason why linen clothing is so beloved in warm countries – it’s not just about staying trendy.

• Light colors reflect the heat away from the body, while natural materials and loose clothing help to increase air circulation around your skin and release heat and sweat that’s trapped under the clothing.


6. FAN

• For the ultra cooling effect, put ice directly in front of your fan. The ice will cool the surrounding air and the fan will blow it directly towards you.

• Get a small fan that is operated through your mobile phone. I got one for my iPhone, which connects to the charger port.

• Umbrella fans are great for hot days, and also come with a solar panel to charge itself on the go.

• Get the Bedfan, which really helps to stay cool while sleeping.


7. Freeze

• Freeze your sheets and pillowcases for a couple of hours before bedtime.

• Store your body lotion, moisturizer and Aloe Vera in the fridge, making it very refreshing as you apply it on.

• Hold a cup full of ice over your mouth and breathe into it.

• Fill a hot water bottle with ice water and freeze it. This works very well, especially at night, because you can sleep with this bottle in bed. Place it around your thighs, wrists, ankles and the back of your knees.



• Sweating can cause dehydration, which can lead to heat stroke and exhaustion – therefore drink, drink, drink!

• I recommend at least 8 glasses of fluids per day, which also helps to regulate your body temperature. Try to stay away from alcohol on hot days.

• Don’t forget to keep a full glass beside your bed if you get thirsty at night.


Gali’s Drink Tip:

• I have been testing the Pure Tea from Pfanner for 3 weeks now and am very convinced. You know that I am a snob when it comes to what I drink, therefore what really impressed me is that the tea has 0 calories, 0 sugar and absolutely no sweetener.

• I am super bored with always drinking water when I do my yoga, therefore the Pure Tea is finally a very welcomed alternative for me.

• The Pure Tea is a refreshing solution on hot days and comes in a chic curve-shaped bottle, which makes it easy to hold and carry around with you on the go. It tastes very light and goes down easy.
