TGIF: It’s the GOLDEN HOUR & #Totoro!

It's TGIF; Golden Hour! Celebrate with HelloSpace.Me

This week’s TGIF image is from JapanesePhotos.Asia. They are running two campaigns, one is about Japan travel info, stories, and photo give aways on their Patreon project. The other is a cost-share photo shoot, perfect for startups and small businesses wanting to make their products and prototypes look international, and have an association with Japanese quality and excellence. There’s only 13 days left to get in.

This photo is a sneak preview of JapanesePhotos.Asia’s latest Patreon post coming out shortly or in an hour’s time. It’s about seeing the house from the iconic classic movie My Neighbour Totoro, a photo shoot done with local model Chiaki. This this image, and the full travel info at Patreon.com/ablyth.

We’re slowly getting back into things after the summer break. We hope you had a great summer and didn’t get as badly sunburnt as Andrew did (hint: put sunscreen on the tops of your feet too). Here is yet another great photo to celebrate the coming weekend. If you have a photo you’d like to share, please drop us a line.

TGIF: Summer Holidays

We’re about to wrap up our summer holidays and get back into the thick of things. We’ve had a great time, including some adventures around the place. We hope you had a great summer, too. Enjoy every last drop of it while you can.

The best guilt-free healthy snacks to keep your energy up during the day

Special offer on HelloSpace.Me

We’re teachers, we know what it’s like to be dragging ourselves when we’re low-energy or weak with hunger. Thank goodness for the short breaks between classes where we can get a bite to tide us over. As you know, HelloSpace.Me is a socially responsible company, and so what can be compatible with our hunger pangs?

Chocolate bars are easy to get, tasty, but very, very bad. The palm oil used in chocolate bars is the main reason for forests being cleared for farming in countries like Indonesia. The cocoa plantations globally are starting to suffer diseases caused by mono-culture farming. That is, if one tree can be infected, then the disease can go unstopped across the whole plantation, which results in lower yields, and is a reason for the slow rise of chocolate prices. The other ingredients are not organic, and may contain organophosphates, and other chemicals that are allergenic or carcinogenic. However, your energy is low, you have a class to keep engaged and energised, and it’s still another hour or more until lunch or dinner.

Thankfully we have iHerb! Get healthy snack bars that use organically grown ingredients, which are also healthy. iHerb snacks are often low sugar but high in other things like protein or fiber to help you make it to the next real meal. Be guilt free and healthy at the same time.

Golden Hour!

It's TGIF; Golden Hour! Celebrate with HelloSpace.Me

We’re busy, you’re busy, we’re all busy. However, the weekend is the chance to forget marking and lesson planning, collapse onto the couch without (too much) guilt, and catch up on some Netflix, and eat food that wasn’t prepared in the microwave. It’s a time to escape a little and fly free. Be it weekend sport, hiking, feeding seagulls, enjoying sushi and a beer with a buddy, whatever you do to relax and unwind. Share with us what you do on your weekends. What we really want is your inspirational photos of the weekend, especially sunrise or sunset photos (we have to keep with the theme of “the golden hour”). Each week we will share the best of the golden hour photos to help kick off the weekend. Tell us what you got up to and share your photos here: Contact Us. Most of all, enjoy your weekend.

This is when we celebrate that time of week when we can relax and unwind with nothing but the best beer and sushi. Enjoy the weekend.

We have never heard of helium beer before. Usually, thinking about listening to two regular guys talking about and analysing a beer, in German, would be the most boring thing you can imagine. But not this…

Golden hour! Here’s to the weekend

The weekend is the chance to forget about marking and lesson planning, so we can collapse onto the couch without (too much) guilt, and catch up on some Netflix, and eat food that wasn’t prepared in the microwave. It’s a time to escape a little and fly free; be it a weekend sport, hiking, sailing, a pub, whatever you do to relax and unwind. Enjoy your weekend.
