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

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.

Veganism

Hey guys,

so today I thought I’d just talk about something that’s been on my mind a lot recently. As you already know I am a big YouTube fan and am watching quite a lot of different channels. The thing that I recognize more and more lately is that veganism is a topic that’s coming up a lot. So I started reading comments whenever the topic came up and it’s just that there are cruel things people say, that I just don’t understand.

How can you say veganism is wrong? How can you say humans are designed to eat animal products? And how can you judge anyone, no matter if they’re vegan or not and say that out lot while being sure you’ll hurt their feelings?

For me it just doesn’t make sense. Yes, I do think that the vegan lifestyle is the right one, BUT I’m not forcing it on anyone. That’s just not the right way to do something like that. In my opinion people have to chose themselves to go vegan, they have to want to become vegan. People have to be openminded about that lifestyle and educate themselves.

I mean I’m probably not the best vegan out there either. I’m fully living on a vegan diet – still eating way too much junk food, but yea, I’m trying. Also I’m trying to buy more and more vegan beauty products and all that, which is a struggle sometimes, but well I’m sure with time I’ll master that as well.

I know being vegan or going vegan isn’t easy, especially in the beginning, but it’s a step in the right direction. Go and watch some movies or speeches on Netflix and YouTube and just educate yourself. Even if you don’t want to become vegan, just do it so you’ll maybe understand why other people made that decision and try to tolerate and accept it.

I know that maybe some people get harsh when you comment on their eating habits, but that’s just life. Everyone is that way. And yes, I also would like to scream at my friends when they’re making a stupid comment about how my food looks so good, even though it’s vegan or that it tastes good, even though it’s vegan. Like WTF?! Vegan doesn’t mean that it has to taste bad. Vegan doesn’t mean that your food can’t look nice. It’s not like I’m making a comment about them eating dead animals. It does get annoying at times, but I try to just ignore it and simply reply to their comments with information about veganism.

I guess this was like a post full of me rambling and I don’t even know if it makes sense, but yea.. If you don’t agree or do or don’t understand what I was saying, please do comment. I’m not going to force this lifestyle on anyone, I just want people to understand and accept why I decided to go vegan. I would also recommend everyone to go and watch Conspiracy the movie’s available on Netflix in most countries and really opens your eyes to what is going on with our planet and how people are trying to cover up what’s happening to it.

Really hope you somehow enjoyed reading this post and that I will see you guys with my next post – xo.

What has been going on in my life lately.

Hey guys,

this post will only be an update post, as I have had a cold almost all week and even though I’m finally getting better, I hadn’t had much time to create something else to post about.

As I already mentioned I am currently doing an apprenticeship and I actually had another important test on Tuesday. It went better than I thought it would, but there were some really tricky and hard questions asked, which I’m not sure I answered correctly. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see until the results come out next month.

Other than that I had the rest of the week off, but as I’ve been sick I’ve pretty much been in bed all day, except for the last few days as I’ve been feeling better and got to enjoy the sun. So glad it’s finally getting warmer again!

Also I’ve been reading a lot of blogs to get inspired and find topics I can post about. I tried to get as far back as I could on those blogs, to see how other bloggers started and which posts got a lot of feedback and comments, so I know what other people actually enjoy reading about. The thing I will be struggling with though, I think will be like fashion posts and all of that, as I don’t have that much variety when it comes to clothes and I don’t have a professional camera. I hope to get one sometime this year, but they are freaking expensive. What I also noticed it that many bloggers, also do make YouTube videos. I am also trying to get into all of that as I think it’s kind of interesting and you know what they say -a picture is worth more than a thousand words. I actually already uploaded a video on my YouTube Channel so make sure to check that one out!

I’m also trying to get back into my schedule of going to the gym at least 3 times a week, now that I am starting to work again on Monday. I hope I will fall back into a routine, because I really enjoy going to the gym.

So yea, that’s basically what’s been going on in my life lately and I hope you’ll have a nice Sunday and enjoy the sun ☀️☺️ – xo.
