MY VITAFY ESSENTIALS

 

Hätte man mich vor ein paar Jahren gefragt, was ich von dem Einnehmen von Supplementen halte, dann hätte ich kopfschüttelnd davon abgeraten und vermutlich hinzugefügt, dass das nur eine weitere Masche der Lebensmittelkonzerne und der Pharmaindustrie ist, um gutgläubigen Amerikanern in Hollywood ihr Geld aus der Tasche zu ziehen, da genau dort die Nachfrage dafür bekanntlich sehr hoch ist. Doch das Einnehmen von Supplementen hat schon lange nichts mehr mit Fitnessjunkies aus Beverly Hills oder steinalten Rentnern in Florida zu tun, die sich so ein noch längeres und gesundes Leben erhoffen. Viel mehr ist es so, dass durch eine unausgewogene Ernährung bei mehr und mehr Menschen Mangelerscheinungen auftreten. Gründe dafür sind (neben der Faulheit beim Kochen) häufig eine rein vegetarische oder vegane Ernährung. Ich selbst bin weder das Eine noch das Andere, esse aber trotzdem kaum Fleisch, trinke keine Milch und esse auch keinen Yoghurt oder Quark. Teilweise weil es mir nicht schmeckt, teilweise weil ich es einfach nicht vertrage. Und das hat leider negative Konsequenzen auf meine Gesundheit. Deswegen habe ich mir ein paar "Hilfsmittel" zugelegt.

GET THE LILY GLOW

 

In den letzten Wochen wurde ich immer öfter gefragt, welche Produkte ich für meine Hautpflege verwende. Und zwar ziemlich genau seit dem Zeitpunkt, an dem ich damit begonnen hatte, die Produkte von Lily Naturalcosmetics zu benutzen. Dank des guten Wetters hat sich mein Hautbild zusätzlich verbessert und ich habe kaum noch Unreinheiten oder Rötungen im Gesicht. Eine wirkliche Pflegeroutine habe ich momentan nicht, da ich gerne verschiedene Produkte teste und ständig zwischen ihnen variiere - je nach dem, was meine Haut meiner Meinung nach gerade braucht. Das eine Mal ein nährendes Öl, das andere Mal eine Feuchtigkeitsmaske oder ein Peeling. Deswegen bin ich immer auf der Suche nach neuen Pflegelinien und habe mich riesig gefreut, als mich das Paket von Lily erreicht hat.

THE NEW ROSYFIT

 

Mein zweites Must-Have neben Avocado & Co. in meiner täglichen Ernährung? Tee! Tee bis zum Umfallen. Da ich (bis auf Iced Coco/Soy Latte) nur sehr selten Kaffe trinke, fängt mein Tag auch nicht wie bei den meisten Menschen mit einer Tasse Kaffe an, sondern mit einer großen Kanne heißem Tee. Ich trinke am Tag zwischen ein und zwei Litern davon, entweder grünen Tee, Kamille, Minze, Ingwer, Zitronengras, Matcha, Kurkuma oder Lavendel Tee; ganz abhängig von Tageszeit und Temperatur. Morgens gibt es meistens eine heiße Zitrone mit frischem Ingwer, den restlichen Tag lang verschiedene Kräutertees und am Abend, kurz bevor ich schlafen gehe, eine große Tasse Lavendel-Tee. Wenn ich unterwegs bin oder arbeiten muss, nehme ich mir meistens eine Flasche kalten Zitronengras-Tee mit frischem Ingwer und frisch gepresstem Limettensaft mit, den ich schon am Vorabend aufgieße und über Nacht ziehen lasse. Meiner Meinung nach gibt es kaum etwas erfrischenderes, als kalten Grünen Tee mit einer leichten Zitrusnote - und sehr gesund ist das Ganze noch dazu!

I'M NOT BORED

 

Hey peeps, I finally managed to write an article containing the link to each product you can see in this outfit (simply click on the little pictures in the gallery). It seemed like many of you have been really loving this look so I figured I would show you some more pictures of it (: It's a very comfortable and easy look - probably a bit to warm for the next few months - but you can't rely on the Germany summer, can you? So for the colder summer days, this is definitely a good outfit to go for.  xx

FLUFFY NUGGET

 

It's still too early to talk about summery outfits due to the low temperatures, so let's talk about fluffy jackets that give you the feeling of wearing your blanket all day long. I found this cute coat at a Zara store in Berlin - it was the last piece and it was luckily my size - so I decided to buy it. I'm not wearing this jacket on a daily bases because it's a bit too fancy for some looks, but I still try to combine it with a lot of different clothes to create some nice outfits. This time, I went for some blue boyfriend jeans, a pair of beige sneakers, a white blouse with frills and a silver bag - all found at Zara. The sunglasses are from A Vanity Affair and the name if the design is "The island Sunglasses Rose Gold". xx

BODASKINS

 

My go to outfit for a an effortless and cool everyday look? A pair of skinny blue jeans, a white basic t-shirt, some black leather boots and a black leather jacket. The most important thing about such a minimalistic and simple look is the high quality of your clothes, especially of the shoes and the jacket. I'm not a fan of synthetic leather and that's why I only buy real leather jackets and boots. In my opinion, imitation leather tends to look cheap and worn out after a little while. Real leather jackets however will look even better the longer you wear them, so they are definitely worth the higher price. I used to wear a leather jacket by Allsaints (here) and I was very happy with the quality, but I wanted to have another one, even more "biker-style" kinda jacket. So when I heard that BODA SKINS was launching an event at the Soho House in Berlin, I decided to come and join them.

¡BARCELONA, TE QUIERO!

 

Hello peeps! Here's another post about my weekend in Barcelona in which I'm telling you more about my stay in this beautiful city. On the second day, we went to "La Barceloneta", a neighborhood near to the sea with tons of restaurants and bars close to the beach. It's one of my favorite districts of the city and especially during summer it's a great place to spend the day in the sun. But before we did a little shopping, we had breakfast at a cute little café called "OMA". I went for a french toast, eggs benedict and a cold-pressed green juice. It was sooo delicious! You should definitely try out this spot when you're in Barca (: Oh, and you should also visit Brunch & Cake, a super cute café offering the most beautiful dishes. Only looking at their pictures on Instagram is mouthwatering...

ANOTHER NEXT

 

Hello there! Today I want to tell you more about a rising stationery label from Sweden. The brand is called Another Next and they just came out with their very first collection called "The pioneers". The collection includes a planner, a sketchbook and a notebook (check out the gallery below). The only difference which can be seen from the outside is the different color of the rubber band. Apart from that the books all look the same from the outside. The design in general is very simple and minimalistic and it's all about clear and defined lines, a delicate typeface and a lot of blank space for your personal ideas and thoughts. I am totally into this plain and typical Scandinavian design and I can't wait for university to finally start so that I can use my planner everyday. I already wrote all of the birthdays and upcoming events into it; even my next travel destinations. And that's another great thing about the planner: It's designed for the next 18 month. So you can definitely make a lot of plans and really get things done. I am a total freak when it comes to making plans and schedules and I truly feel like this company has completely understood what people like me are looking for. And if this appeals to you, don't forget to participate in my giveaway, which is international, so literally everyone can join it. If you are interested, take a look at my Instagram to find some more information about it. xx

PARC DE MONTJUIC

 

¡Estoy enamorada! Well, at least I'm in love with my new sweater by Oh Yeah! Berlin. The material is super soft and feels very gentle on the skin. I love the minimalistic design and the cute little heart on the left chest. My style in general is very simple and basic, so I like it when clothes have prints or other little eye catchers on them to add a little special feature to it. You can guess that his army jacket by Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply (here) was rather of my taste. I bought it last summer when I was in New York City and I've been wearing it ever since. I mean... how cool are the patches on the sleeves? Oh, and if you're into patches and cute prints just as much as I am, you can use my code YEAHLEAPERLINGER to get a 20% discount on your whole purchase. You should definitely take a look at their website for more inspiration! For the rest of my outfit I decided to go for a simple pair of blue jeans by Zara (here) and a pair of silver sneakers by Stradivarius (here). The bag is from Sassyclassy (here) and the sunnies are from Amazon (here). xx

GLITTERY BEES & VELVET MOCCASINS

 

When we decided to go to Barcelona, the main reasons were actually the warm temperatures and the sunny weather. At least, that's what we thought would expect us. But as soon as we arrived in Spain, we realized that it was even colder and windier than expected (iPhone weather app is just not reliable at all haha). Gladly, I took one of my favorite sweaters with me on this trip since most of the stores only sold summery clothes. I got this sweater in three colors - that's how much I love them! I got them from H&M and they are super soft and very comfortable to wear, especially when you're traveling. Unfortunately, they don't sell it anymore (or at least not during summer season), but I found a similar one on their website (here). Bag (similar here), sunglasses (similar here), shoes (similar here) and jeans (here) are all from Zara. My rings are from a little jewelry shop in Ensenada, Mexico and from Vero Moda Pieces (here). xx
