#FashionFriday

Hey guys,

I originally wanted to upload another post, but as it is Friday and I’ve only ever uploaded one other #FashionFriday post, I thought it was time to write another one.

This one is a pretty simple fall outfit though, as all the clothes I’m wearing are by H&M.
I have to admit that I am kind of obsessed with online shopping and I got really excited for this outfit while ordering it. I just couldn’t wait to see if it looked as good as I imagined it.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments below. 🙂

my skin care routine

Hey guys,

as I just recently started using new products for my skin care routine, I thought this would be an interesting topic to write about.

I’m not the kind of person that puts tons of products on their face or their body in general. For a long time all I used was some creme and that’s it. But cleansing your face is important, especially when you wear makeup.

So after my last cleanser and face lotion ran out I was desperately looking for a new one and found these products by Martina Gebhardt in a local shop that sells organic stuff. As I may have mentioned I am trying to include more and more vegan friendly products into my daily life and as they were standing by the vegan beauty products I thought I’d give them a try.

I’ve been using these products for about two weeks now and I have to say I really like the way they make my skin feel. It does feels soft and cleansed after I use them. I am also using both products in the mornings after getting up and before I go to bed at night. The Martina Gebhardt website recommends using both products in the morning, but only the cleanser at night as it is enough to moisturize your face, but I found that my skin does feel dry after just using the cleanser, so that’s why I am using both products in the mornings and nights.

If you want to check the products out you can get them here. I don’t know if they are shipping worldwide, but I saw that they do ship to a few countries in Europe! 🙂

Hope you enjoyed reading this post and I would love to here what products you included to your daily skin care routine.

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.

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.
