About Me

Hey! I’m Vita, and you’re very welcome to my blog!

I had acne. I was bloated. My hormones were out of whack. My hair was falling out. I was constantly fatigued. I was feeling inadequate. I was unhappy. I saw no meaning in life. I tried to empty that void in my heart by shopping obsessively (and racking up debt). I was in a job I didn’t believe in.

One day, I simply had enough and set off to fix all of the issues.

I tried tons of diets (from 80/10/10 to vegetarian or Paleo) and was wrong a hundred times, but what finally worked for me was finding balance and learning how to love myself.

That’s what my blog is really about: my lifelong journey of learning, discovery and self improvement. Come with me!

1625540_10151811914057127_457890099_nVitaLivesFree is a mixture of everything to do with a healthy lifestyle. I don’t restrict myself to certain topics, so you’ll find all of this:

  • Natural and DIY beauty tips and recipes
  • Tips precisely for acne (because I had it for 14 years and I know what it’s like)
  • Tips for healthy hair naturally
  • Delicious Ayurveda-inspired healthy recipes
  • My take on health-related topics
  • Tips for a healthy mind and self-improvement
  • Being active and fit (I haven’t done much in that field yet, but it’s an important part of my life, so I want my blog to reflect it)
  • Lifestyle or bits and bobs of my personal life

I am far from perfect, but I love myself. Just the way I am. At least most of the time. Sometimes, the demons try to come out, but I’m getting very good at silencing them.

I live with my husband Luca and three rescued pets on a beautiful subtropical island.

My skin is clear and radiant. I have boundless energy. Creativity flows through me once again. I’ve accepted my female body and my hormones have returned to balance. My hair is shiny and hydrated for the first time in ages. I have an inexplicable feeling of lightness and contentment.

I am simply happy to be. To be alive. To share my life with you.

This blog is about living free – from health issues, acne, excess weight, food cravings, emotional baggage, ego and of course the rat race.  I’ve been there just like everyone else but I’ve set myself free and built myself a life full of joy – now it’s your turn, and I’m here to help!

I don’t have all of the answers. But I’d like to help you with everything I know. With everything I’ve learned on this long and winded road of healing, both inside and outside.

I’d be over the moon if you stuck around. Say Hi to me, tell me where you’re from, what your biggest challenges are (or whatever else you’d like to tell me). I value our connection more than most things in this world, so please don’t hide in the shadows. Let’s share stories. Let’s support each other. Let’s create meaningful connections across the world.

You can either comment under one of the blogposts or email me directly. You can also find me on YouTube or Facebook. If you’d like to see more of my life (and my cute furry family), you can follow me on Instagram.

If you’d like to receive updates straight in your inbox, you can simply leave your email address here or write it in the box at the top hand corner. Or subscribe to VitaLivesFree via RSS feeder or Bloglovin.

If you’re looking for something specific, you can use the search box at the right hand corner, right underneath the menu.

You can read more about my jorney and all of the why’s on this page.

Let the beautiful holistic journey begin at this very moment!

And remember that I’m always here to support you. In your challenges, in your happy moments, and everywhere in between.

Lots of love,

Vita xx
