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

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.

In love with Concerts.

Hey guys,

as I just went to a concert yesterday, I thought I’d let you be part of my love for concerts.

I try to go to go to as many concert as I can without going overboard and spoiling that experience. My last concert before the one yesterday was in June 2015. Part of that is that I sometimes think they’re overpriced and even though I like that singer I don’t want to spend that much money on him or her. But when I do decide to spend the money I’m never disappointed. I just love seeing that person performing on stage and just be able to party with them and have fun. Some people don’t get that, they prefer spending their money on clothes or makeup, and even though I like to spend my money on that stuff as well I still love to just set aside a little bit to go to concerts.

At the moment I’m still in that after-concert-bliss and let me tell you, for me that’s such an amazing feeling. What can I say, I love seeing those people do what they love on stage and spend the time with other people who enjoy their music. Another thing I love about concerts, you meet new people and some even turn into very good friends.

Here a few pictures of concerts I went to in the last few years:

Selena Gomez – 14. September 2013

While I’m still living in that after-concert-bliss and don’t want to go back to work tomorrow, I hope you all had a nice weekend and will have a good start of the new week tomorrow. I’d also love to hear about the concerts you’ve been to and which one was your favorite. -xo

Things I Like

Hey guys,

I didn’t really know what to write about on my next post and still wanted to upload something today, so I decided to just tell you a little mit more about myself and the things I like. Hope that’s okay with you. I’ll just do different categories and start rambling a little.

Books

You could say I’m a little bookworm. I’ve always loved reading and just think it’s a lovely way to relax and get away from the daily stress surrounding us. At the moment I am kind of into reading series the “50 Shades of Grey”-type, even though I have to admit this series comes at the end of the list of books I like, sorry. I recently read the Hacker Series by Meredith Wild and The Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day, both of which the 5th book of the series is coming out this month!!! Can’t contain my excitement!!!

I also like to read a little Nicholas Sparks here and there. My favorite books of his definitely are The Rescue and The Longest Ride. Make sure to check them out if that’s what you like to read!

YouTube

Next to books YouTube is a thing of mine I can’t get enough of. I love “getting to know” other people and get an idea on how they live their lives or just get inspired my their videos and gain motivation. I am following a lot of different YouTube Channels, but here are the ones I check for a new video almost every day:

Zoella (I just loose this girl. One of the reasons I started this blog and wanted to get more into it), The Sacconejolys (this family is simply amazing and the kids are soooo cute!), Nikki Blackketter (an amazing inspiration if you lack motivation of going to the gym regularly. Watching her videos actually makes me more than excited to go to the gym and work out.), Jaclyn Hill (this woman is AMAZING! She is so gorgeous and hilarious. Even though I am noway near being able to do my makeup the way she does, I love watching her videos.) of course I have subscribed to a lot more channels but like I said those are the ones I check regularly.

TV Shows / Series

You could say I’m an addict when it comes to those. Netflix is my life! Even though I like watching a movie every now and then the think I’m really into is tv shows. I’ll just list a few of the ones I am currently watching or watched and hope it won’t get too long: Pretty Little Liars, Supernatural, Suits, White Collar, Criminal Minds, Castle, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill.. I’ve definitely watched more, but can’t think of them right now. Some of them I am still watching at the moment, others I’ve finished and some I just stopped watching at some point, because I didn’t have time to keep up at some point and forgot everything that happened at the next so I’ll have to start watching them from scratch again.

 Other Things I Like 

Can’t think of any more topics right now so I’ll just tell you other things I like to do in my free time, when I’m not doing anything of the things listed above.

I like just hanging out with my friends, go to the movies or out to eat or for a drink and just chat a little. I am dancing at a club in my town for like 17 years now, which is a pretty long time if you ask me. Also I enjoy cooking and baking if I have the time (made these vegan cinnamon buns yesterday: Vegan Cinnamon Buns and some pumpkin soup today)

That’s pretty much it I guess. If you are interested in anything else let me know! And I would also like to hear about your favorite books, YouTubers and TV shows / series, so I have something to check out when I’m bored! 🙂

See you next week (hopefully) – xo

some real talk.

Sometimes I have those moments where I feel like everything’s going wrong with my life. I am not able to do anything right, I feel like nobody’s there for me and listens and it’s just the worst feeling ever.

I don’t know if that will ever go away – I hope it does, but of it doesn’t I sure as hell hope I’ll be able to handle it better.

Sometimes I feel like I just have to justify everything I do. Someone’s always making stupid comments about the things I do or say and sometimes they are laughing at me and don’t seem to get how much they are actually hurting me with doing so.

Have you ever felt that way? Like no one seems to really get you. It’s annoying and I am kind of sick of crying about it and feeling stupid.

I mean I’m not doing anything wrong I just do what I think is right and I don’t understand why people have to make stupid comments just because they don’t understand why I am doing certain things the way I do them. It should be okay t make mistakes or forget to answer a text because you have other stuff on your mind.

“You can’t please everyone” is what I always try to remember, but then again I am a people pleaser and want everyone to be happy and satisfied. Does anyone know that feeling and maybe has some tips and tricks how to handle situations like that? I would really welcome them as I don’t know what to do and like I mentioned before I’m sick of getting super upset every time someone makes fun of how I am.

Kind of a depressing post, but I still hope you guys enjoy your Sunday and have a nice summer – xx
