My Go-To Breakfast|vegan

Hey guys,

today I thought I’d share my go-to breakfast with you. I’m seriously eating this almost every single day. It’s perfect on the go and really quick to throw together. Here are the ingredients:

  • one apple
  • oats
  • flaxseeds
  • walnuts
  • dates
  • soya yogurt

 

All you now have to do is mix everything together and you’re ready to go. When I take it with me to uni I put the yogurt extra, because I personally don’t like it when it has that mushy consistency.

I also wanted to just give you a quick update on how my workout and everything is going. I have been going to the gym a lot lately and started lifting weight, which I really do enjoy. Unfortunately my body isn’t really used to it, that’s why I felt really down yesterday and just did a light yoga session and went for a walk outside. I think it is really important to listen to your body, but still do something, like go for a walk or do a quick and easy workout at home. Just be easy on yourself and don’t push it. Try to slowly increase the intensity of your workout sessions.

Anyways, I hope you all have a nice weekend.

See you next time – xo

#MusicMonday

Hey guys,

thought I’d just make a quick #MusicMonday post again, since the last one I did was in September. So this time I decided to just mention the last three songs I added to my Spotify playlist.

okay so I went to a concert a few weeks ago and Kuult was the opening act. Simply put, I fell in love with their music and especially this song. It’s upbeat and just lifts my mood every time I listen to it.

  • Symphony by Clean Bandit, Zara Larsson 

found this in the Spotify charts and yea it’s catchy. I like it.

do I even have to say anything? I mean, who doesn’t love Ed Sheeran ❤️

trying to get my shit together.

Hey guys,

so I thought I’d let you know what I’ve been trying for years and now seriously want to pursue… Get serious about working out and eating healthy.

I hope that writing this down and sharing my progress with you might actually help me do this for real now. I still have to figure out how often I can go to the gym now that university starts on Monday and I have a lot to learn about meal prepping. At the moment I will have Wednesdays and Fridays off, but I seriously have to find a part-time job. Being used to earning money and now being completely cut off, will definitely be hard. I do have a few savings in  my account, but turns out I’ve been spending more money than ever this past month. This will be a really hard time.

So, back to me trying to work out more and eating more healthy. I have a gym membership for about three years now and there were times where I went regularly and times were I didn’t go for months. I recently got back into going at least two to three times a week with a friend of mine. We’re usually just hitting up some of the courses that my gym offers and feel really good afterwards.
Thanks to YouTube though I’ve been following a lot of Fitness channels and been loving them ever since. Didn’t really change anything about my motivation in actually working out though. Yesterday I was at the FIBO in Cologne though and I actually got the chance to meet two of my favorite YouTubers (Nikki Blackketter and Rob Lipsett) – super nice guys by the way – and just being there and the vibe that was going on, made me want to be serious about this now. I can’t always just say I’ll do it, I have to start and once I’ll see the results I know it was worth it.

Of course another big part in working out and getting my body into the shape I want it to be, is eating healthy. I’ve been vegan for almost two years now and I have to admit I haven’t really been the healthiest one. I like to eat, I like food and I looooove sweets. In my opinion eating healthy doesn’t mean you’ll have to cut out special foods and all that – it’ll just makes you crave the more if you do – you just have to find the right balance. I thing that starting Uni on Monday will actually help me to get into being more healthy easier, because I am forced to meal prep as I have no clue if they have any appealing vegan options there.

So in the following months I’ll try to keep you updated about my progress with meal prep posts and maybe a few fitness posts, even though I’m not sure how to actually write and structure on (any tipps?). I also put it on my bucket list to get more into blogging now that I will have more time to dedicate to this blog. Hope you guys are excited and will follow my blog to not only see if there will be a transformation in my body, but also how things at university will go.

I’d love for you to share your stories with me. Just leave a comment and let me know if you already started working out more and getting healthy or if you do want to start with me – always makes more fun when you know you’re not alone and can share your struggles and experiences. Until next time – xo

 

PS: I also had to share the pictures I made with Nikki and Rob at the FIBO 2017.

Life changing decision?!

Hey guys,

I haven’t posted in a while. But I hope I’ll get the chance to post more starting in April.

But let’s just get into the reason why I named the post the way I did.
I decided to quit my job and go to university. I will be studying International Business Administration and I am suuuuuper excited about it, which makes me realize how much I missed studying.

The decision wasn’t made over night though. I knew I wanted to study for a long while and after finishing my apprenticeship, it just didn’t feel like the time was right just yet. I wanted to work for a little while, earn money and experience. Still, the decision to start now kind of came out of the blue, but I didn’t feel comfortable in doing what I was doing and I know that I don’t want to work as an assistant all my life. I need to challenge myself again, I need to learn more stuff and find a more fulfilling job.

I am super excited about all the things that are about to come and can’t wait for uni to start in April.

If you experienced something like that and kind of stopped doing what you did and started walking down a completely different path, let me know in the comments below as I would love to hear about your experiences.

See you next time  – xo.

 

why I suck at blogging

Okay, I guess I have to admit that I seriously suck at blogging.

The thing is I really want to get into it and dedicate my time to creating amazing content that people enjoy reading, but .. I’m always overthinking stuff. I think I do have something I want to talk about but then it turns out that I’m just not able to take pictures of it or that an outfit looked way better in my mind than when I have it on and take a picture.

I also think that it is pretty hard for a beginner to compete with all those amazing bloggers out there. Why would anyone want to read my blog, if there are hundreds of other blogs way better that mine. With professional pictures, amazing outfit and travel posts?

I know that at least some of them probably started the way that I did. With no experience and no professional equipment. So that’s just what I have to remind myself of – that as long as I love what I’m posting, it doesn’t matter if my blog is successful or if a lot of people are reading it. And that’s what I’m going to do. I will not pressure myself into posting something once a week or a month just to do so, I will post whenever I feel like it and whenever I have something to talk about.

Let’s just hope I can come up with something 😉

See you next time. – xo

MusicMonday

Hey guys,

I’ll make this one short and sweet. Here are three songs I’m obsessed with lately:

So obsessed with this song lately. Always been a die hard Jonas Fan and I really love the new music Nick and Joe are releasing lately. Make sure to check out Nick’s new Album Last Year Was Complicated which includes Bacon.

This one will definitely be my summer song 2016! So good. Just check it out, turn it up and enjoy.

Okay when it came to choosing a country song for this #MusicMonday I had a hard time. There are so many I love. I had to remind myself that there will be enough MusicMonday post’s in the future for me to share all my favorite country songs with you.

So yea here you go. Hope you enjoyed the post and let me know what you think of the songs, when you checked them out – xo.

Life update.

Hey guys,

as I am currently not sure what to post about I thought that I’d just post another update on what’s going on in my life.

Well, I am one week away from finishing my apprenticeship, which on one side is super exciting and scaring on the other. I don’t know if I’ll get a job yet or if I’ll  end up unemployed. Guess I’ll find that out within the next week – or at least I hope I will, because there are some business approvals missing yet so yea. Hope all ends well and I’ll start working at that position on 21st of June.

Also I wanted to post another #FashionFriday yesterday, but couldn’t get some photos done so you’ll have to deal with this one featuring my brother and me yesterday. He finally finished school and got this graduation diploma yesterday. The ceremony and celebration was really  cool and I enjoyed myself even though it was way too long. But anyway, I am very proud of him and hope he’ll find a path to follow and enjoy his life.

  • dress and jacket by Esprit
  • purse by Picard (and before all of you go, why is she wearing a leather purse when she’s vegan.. well the purse was my grandmas who died when I was very young, so yea it is something very special to me. At this point in my life I don’t think I’d purchase it myself)
  • shoes by Deichmann

If anyone is interested in the stuff my brother’s wearing, let me know in the comments and I’ll update this post including his outfit details.

Hope you’re all having a nice weekend! See you next time – xo.
