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 ❤️

recent reads.

Okay, I have to admit this one isn’t that recent, but I wanted to share this series with you, because I really enjoyed reading it and thought that maybe some of you to there will as well.

The series I’m talking about is The Selection Series by Kiera Cass.
Kalyn Nicholson, a YouTuber I love, talked about the last book of the series in one of her videos, so I thought I’d just give it a try and bought the whole box on amazon.

The series plays in the future and the world isn’t what it is now. Countries have different names and the population is split into castes, which each represents a certain class and with the different castes you’re only allowed to do certain jobs. Also most of the countries aren’t democratic any longer, most of them are monarchies now. So the heir of the throne of Illéa (a future country) is looking for a future bride with the help of the Selection and that’s pretty much what the book is about. It kind of reminds you of the Bachelor, but I really enjoyed reading this series. I have to admit though that I enjoyed the first three books more than the last two, but just read the books yourself and let me know what you think!

Here’s what it says on the back of the first book of the series:

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime.

The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth.
To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels.
To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Them America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she begins to realize that the life she’s dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.”

If you already read the series let me know what you think of it. I mean which girl didn’t fantasize about becoming a princess one day?! 😜

I’m also always open to knew suggestions and always looking for new books to read, so let me know about your favorite series!

See you next time – xo.

#MusicMonday

It’s Monday!!!
Even though I had to get back to work today I’m excited, because I want to share the following four songs with you. They’ve been playing on repeat for weeks now and I’m just in love with them.

Even though I’m not heart broken at the moment, I’m soooo in love with this song. Just listen to it and you’ll know what I mean. ❤️

I don’t really know what to say about this one, just that I’m obsessed with it. ” Oh my man he got them real strong hands and after working all day out in that hot sunshine he comes walking in always lookin’ so fine” 🎶

I heard this song first when my brother was listening to it one morning and I instantly fell in love. It’s just a song for a good mood and I love playing it as loud as I can and singing along at the top of my lunges.

He’s German singer and a YouTuber I really love was part of the video to the song and used it for one of her videos, that’s when I fell in love with the song. Make sure to support him and check out his Facebook page.

Let me know what you think of the songs after checking them out! Would love to hear your opinion and also which songs you’re obsessed with lately. 🙂

See you next time – xo.

 

#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
