A LITTLE ABOUT ME

My name is Armina Mevlani. Many of you know me from my TV shows, others as the girl who represented Albania in Miss World and some as the Creative Director of a magazine for almost three years, time in which I wrote many articles on fashion and other domains. But, there are also some of you who do not know me and I want to leave out what I have done so far, not because I do not find it agreeable; on the contrary, it helped me become who I am, but because this blog is the beginning of a new chapter in my life and I want to share new things with all of you.

My blog is called “Rebel Heart” due to the fact that in my rebel teen years I used to refer to myself as a rebel heart. I also wished to make it a tattoo, but my parents wouldn’t allow me to. Today I decided to personalize it by naming my blog after it. It all came naturally to me and all those who know me, know what “rebel heart” means to me. Rebel Heart is me.

Given that our hormones are…

Daily Habits for Healthy Blood Sugar

08/08/2022

A quick bio lesson: Your body needs energy to maintain normal function. You get that energy from food, which your body breaks down into smaller parts and can either absorb and use or excrete. When you eat carbohydrates, your body breaks them down into glucose, a simple sugar that’s your body’s primary source of fuel. Glucose travels through the body in your bloodstream, and it’s taken up by cells—in the muscles, the brain, nearly everywhere—to be converted into energy that…

Balancing act: how to succeed in the age of hybrid working

08/08/2022

People don’t like commuting – so what?” Such was the aggressive – and very public – response that Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan Chase’s chief executive officer and a billionaire titan of Wall Street, made to the suggestion that hybrid working might be here to stay. That was in May 2021; a year later, he had changed his tune, acknowledging in his annual shareholder letter that at least 40 per cent of employees at America’s largest bank would work partially remotely,…
