Here are some of my favorite songs and some quotes for those of you who need some late night inspiration. Good night, loves. xx
Hey guys! Today I wanna show you a quite simple but very comfortable outfit that I wore a few days ago when the weather was freezing cold but super sunny at the same time. That's why I had to put on my Dior look-a-like sunglasses, which I found on amazon. They are very cheap and affordable compared to the original Dior So Real sunnies. I love the shape of them and I wear them nearly every time there's a little sunshine, so I'm thinking about investing in the Dior ones. And as I went for a walk with my dog as usual I had to wear a jacket which would keep me warm, so I ended up wearing my Woolrich Arctic Parka in Dark Navy. The design is very simple and when you walk through the pedestrian zone in Munich during winter time, nearly every second person is wearing such a jacket, but I still think it looks very cool and because of its great quality it's a good investment to make. To keep my feet warm I put on these lined black boots by Zara. They look very much like a mix of Moonboots and Inuikii and since I love chunky boots very much, these Zara ones were a perfect and cheap alternative. And I didn't really felt a difference to Ugg Boots or Moonboots, so they are defiantly a recommendation to buy! Furthermore, I wore a pair of black jeans, a striped shirt by Vero Moda and a black hat by NoaNoa.
Hey meine Lieben! Heute gibt es einen kurzen Post von mir, bei dem es sich um eine leckere Alternative zu Fast Food und Fertigprodukten handelt. Eine gesunde und ausgewogene Ernährung ist sehr wichtig - das weiß jeder - und trotzdem wird diese im stressigen Berufsalltag leider viel zu oft vernachlässigt. Die Wenigsten haben Lust nach einem langen Tag im Büro oder in der Uni noch großartig zu kochen und meistens endet es dann damit, dass man zuhause zu Gerichten greift, die zwar leicht und schnell zuzubereiten, aber dafür umso ungesünder sind. Little Lunch hat genau für diese Leute eine Alternative geschaffen: Leckere Smoothies und Suppen, die satt machen, sehr preiswert sind und noch dazu voller gesunder Zutaten stecken. Ein Glas enthält jeweils genau eine Portion, die ihr super easy einfach in euren Rucksack oder eure Handtasche packen und für die Mittagspause mit in die Arbeit oder nehmen könnt. Die Produkte sind zu 100% aus Bioprodukten hergestellt und teilweise sogar vegan und glutunfrei! Es sollte also für jeden etwas dabei sein. Ich habe mich schon fleißig durch einige Sorten durchprobiert und euch eine kleine Vorschau meiner Favoriten zusammengestellt. Auf der Website findet ihr noch viele weiter Suppen, also schaut unbedingt mal bei Little Lunch vorbei! Zur Zeit gibt es außerdem eine limitierte Weihnachtsbox, die neben sechs köstlichen Sorten auch ein Rezepte-Booklet und einen Kochlöffel enthält. Ihr habt aber auch die Möglichkeit euch individuell eure Favoriten zusammenzustellen und nach Hause liefern zu lassen. Also seht euch unbedingt mal auf der Webseite um, falls ihr noch nicht alle Weihnachtsgeschenke beisammen habt oder euch einfach selbst mal etwas Gutes tun wollt!
Fall season calls for long afternoon walks, chai latte and movie nights. And outfit shootings since the lightening is pretty awesome and the temperatures are still warm enough to wear less than a super thick winter coat, Uggs and a XXL scarf. So today I went out and took some pictures, featuring some of my all time favorite clothes. Black leather (or leather look-alike) pants, chunky black boots and my latest obsession, a black crocodile look-alike leather bag. I love the material and I've been wanting this bag for such a long time but unfortunately it was always sold out. But last week I finally found it back in stock and immediately bought it (and as you can tell I ended up buying a few more pieces...). The bag kind of reminds me of the Chanel Boy Bag or the Saint Laurent bags in crocodile embossed leather (at least a tiny little bit). I'm obsessed with both brands and hopefully one day I will finally own one. But let's be honest, life should't only be about buying or dreaming about expensive high end designer bags, when there are so many more meaningful things you could spend your money on. Especially when you are young. So for now I am very happy with this bag by Zara. The size is perfect for fitting your purse, keys and some make up into it. And the leather is also super soft and looks high-quality. So if you were looking for a perfect black bag for your everyday life that isn't super pricy but still fashionable, you should definitely take a closer look at it. xx
As you probably have already noticed, I started doing more of these so called "mood boards". I always used to visit other blogs and websites and just went through all the pictures. To me, pictures and quotes are pretty much the two main sources when it comes to writing an article. So in the past I often felt like writing but didn't have the suitable pictures to complete my blogpost. And because of that I just let it be and didn't write at all. But as I want to write and post more frequently and I want to share my thoughts with you guys, I will be using pictures the ones you see in this post from websites like weheartit and use them to express my mood and to emphasize my emotions. I really enjoy looking at pictures and paintings, wether it's in a museum, in a magazine or on the internet. Both are a way of expressing feelings when you somehow don't find the right words to do so. It's not just about what you can see in the picture, it's about how the scenery, the expression on a face or simply the colors make you feel. And the same goes with music.
I went out for a walk through the woods and thought the weather was perfect for taking some pictures of one of my recently favorite outfits. I saw this sweater-dress combo on a friend of mine and I really liked it, so I kind of had to do some shopping... Right? This look is very simple but still feminin and chic. For some people it might be a bit too short but I think you can also wear this outfit with some skinny blue or black jeans if that's more comfortable for you. And as winter is right around the corner, wearing thin tights like these might not always be a good idea. Anyways, I hope you guys are all doing well and enjoying your week! I had some days off where I mostly just relaxed at home and watched some episodes (or seasons...) on Netflix, read some books or went for a little hike with my dog. The landscape photos you find in this post were taken this morning, right after last night's snow had thawed. I really enjoy taking pictures of the landscape and nature in general, so I figured I'd show you some of them in this article, even though it's an outfit post. Hope you like it anyways! xx
"We are all just a car crash, a diagnosis, an unexpected phone call, a newfound love or a broken heart away from becoming a completely different person. How beautifully fragile are we that so many things can take but a moment to alter who we are forever?"
Samuel. D Thompson
This quote has been spinning through my mind for so long, because it's such a simple statement with such a deep and powerful meaning. I stumbled upon it on a friend's Instagram and I probably already spent hours thinking about transience and simply the beauty of life. So I'm not going to tell you the details, but I still think anybody can relate to what I am taking about. After me and my boyfriend broke up I felt like crab and my world kinda broke into pieces. At least that's what I thought at that very moment. That I'm never going to be able to be happy and to smile again and that my life would never be the same again without him. And so on. Just the typical thoughts right after a breakup I guess. But of course, that's not what happened. The only thing I was right with was that I was never going to be the same person again as I used to be. And I'm glad about that. I have become an even more openminded, adventurous, introspective and creative person ever since then and I am so pleased with how it all turned out to be. I like myself a lot more today than I did a few months ago. I am more content and I appreciate the little things in life a lot more. I try to live in the present and be thankful for what I have right now instead of holding on to things and worrying about letting go. So I figure my mum was right when she told me that great things are about to come when everything seems to be falling apart and that old energy is clearing out for new energy to enter. Sometimes we need to let things pass, plunge into the change and just move it. And be patient.
Another phrase I stumbled upon was the following one: If a flower is already dead, you don't water it anymore. It's that simple. So why is it that humans do everything to save love when it's about to break but not to protect it while it's still "whole"? We always tend to hold on to things because we fear something great like that won't happen twice. But that is so not true! This way of thinking is so illogical because while we are holding on to things that have already passed new and even greater chances pass by. And that's probably why we think great things won't happen twice. They are happening but we are just not realizing them. But still, everyone of us holds so tightly on to what they have, even if it's already broken and unfixable.
"Es ist Zeit für einen ganz besonderen Tee - Deinen Lieblingstee!" Diejenigen von euch, die meinen Blog schon seit längerem verfolgen wissen bereits, wie gerne und vor allem wie viel Tee ich trinke; ganz unabhängig von der Jahreszeit. Meiner Meinung nach gibt es (neben Kokoswasser) nichts erfrischenderes als kalten Grünen Tee mit viel Ingwer und frisch gepresstem Zitronensaft. Und da ich täglich an die ein bis zwei Liter davon trinke, freue ich mich immer über Nachschub an neuen Teesorten. Ich achte sehr darauf, woher die Inhaltsstoffe kommen und welche Zutaten für den Tee verwendet wurden. Es gibt absolut nichts gesundes daran Tee zu trinken, dessen Inhaltsstoffe vorher gespritzt wurden oder anderweitig belastet sind. Bei meiner Suche nach neuen Bio-Tees bin ich dann schließlich auf Lieblingstee gestoßen. Lieblingstee bezeichnet sie selbst als eine "Online Manufaktur für Lieblingstee", die neben Eigenkreationen auch sehr ausgefallene und seltene Sorten vertreiben. Von Grünem, Weißen, Schwarzen Tee über Teeblumen bis hin zu Matcha und Jasmintee findet ihr im Onlineshop alles, was das Teeliebhaberherz höher schlagen lässt. Der Gründer und Inhaber Oliver Hausmann war so freundlich mir einige Sorten zur Probe zukommen zu lassen, damit ich mich selbst von der hohen Qualität und dem intensiven Geschmack überzeugen kann. Doch noch bevor ich den Tee das erste Mal getrunken habe war ich schon sehr von dem schnellen und aufmerksamen Service des Labels angetan.
Today was a pretty hectic day. My alarm rang way too early for a Sunday morning 'cause there was a lot of work to do and since the upcoming week won't be less stressful I'm trying to enjoy my evenings at home to the fullest. Snuggling up in my PJs, wearing my monkey socks and doing a face face mask while listening to music and having a cup of hot tea is what really helps me to relax and calm down. I totally need this time for me to think about almost everything that has been on my mind the whole day long more deeply. I figured that if I make up my mind and take some time to think about my feelings and emotions consciously I feel more balanced and pleased. I started to ask myself why I am feeling the way I am feeling in certain situations and if being angry or feeling sad is reasonable or just an excuse for something else I might messed up or feel unsatisfied with. Sometimes it's easier to be angry and pissed instead of overthinking why you feel this way and maybe just admit that you're simply hurt. I strive to live a more honest life which starts by being honest to yourself and I figured that if I question my feelings and face my emotions I feel more calm and settled. So in that moment it doesn't matter if I feel pain or love or desperation or anger or pure happiness, I enjoy it and I take my time to overthink every single one of it. Because it makes me more aware of myself as the person I truly am and not the person society tells me to be. Overthinking my feelings and being such an introspective person makes me a more creative person which inspires me to new ways of thinking. We always get taught to act rationally instead of making decisions more intuitively as it would be our human nature. I wanna make decisions out of love and happiness and not because I am told to do so by other people. As you look back on your life you will see that the decisions you made out of love are never the ones to regret. But that's another story. So for today (or shall I say tonight?) let's just end this little train of thought, go to bed and get some sleep. And for the ones out there who still need a little bit of inspiration, here are some of my favorite writings which I stumbled upon during the last couple of days. Good Night! xx
As I already told you in my recent post, I'm totally into chunky military boots. I just feel the most comfortable walking around with this kind of shoes. So it's no big surprise that I had to buy a black pilot jacket that goes perfectly with my new boots to complete my look. But to give this very simple style a little twist and a more feminine touch, I combined these two pieces with a cute floral dress. I love the pattern and the material is also super comfy, so for fall season it's just the perfect buy. I didn't really know which bag to wear with it, think I might need to buy a new one soon haha! Right now I'm working on a new beauty blogpost for the girls, so stay tuned!
