My mood these days: desperate queen. 🙆🏼‍♀️ Bin nach wie vor nicht gerade glücklich (und man sieht es mir an) zur Zeit, aber das mit dem Aufstehen und Krönchen richten mache ich halt einfach wortwörtlich. Wäre ja blöd, einfach aufzugeben!

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Happy Sunday! No clothes, no problems - oder so ähnlich, haha! Ich bin ja nicht so der größte Fan von irgendwelchen deepen Sprüchen unter Instagramfotos, die meistens nicht mal wirklich zueinander passen, aber eins kann ich euch sagen: auch in dunklen Zeiten sollte man nicht vergessen, dass es wieder besser wird. Das muss ich mir grad selbst immer wieder ein bisschen vorhalten, denn seit einem Monat läuft hier einiges nicht so wie es sollte, aber ich will auch nicht aufgeben. Ich kämpfe grade sehr mit allem, vor allem auch mit mir selbst und meinem alten Ich, den Depressionen, Ängsten und Zweifeln. Ich weine viel, auch oft einfach so ganz plötzlich, dabei will ich nicht mehr so negativ sein, auch wenn es halt nunmal grad sehr negativ ist. Aber ich hab‘ mich in den letzten 1,5 Jahren so sehr aus dem Loch gekämpft, in dem ich war, und da will ich nicht wieder zurück. Ich habe so viele positive Veränderungen in meinem Leben erlebt (und glücklicherweise auch mit euch auf dem Blog geteilt) und schaue immer wieder mit Stolz darauf zurück. Ich will stark sein. Für mich selbst und meine Zukunft. Also kämpfe ich weiter und dann lasse ich auch diese dunklen Zeiten wieder hinter mir! Tschakka! ♥️ (Und WTF? Wie konnte dieser Post jetzt so unschuldig anfangen und so tiefgründig enden? Upsi.) | 📷 @theblondefreckles

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Happy Sunday!...

Yay, there’s finally my second look from my photo shoot with Süperb and Secondella! Now, it’s actually a little bit too cold for this outfit, but it’s nothing a pair of tights and a cozy warm jacket can’t fix! ;) I must say that this t-shirt is one of the best-fitting shirts I’ve ever worn. Klara, the designer of Süperb, added bust darts to this shirt for a perfect fit – plus, it’s a fitted cut and in the end, this is simply an amazing t-shirt! And I’m pretty sure that you’re all gonna love this electric blue tulle skirt (which has pockets, so you just have to love it!). We went for a more sporty and casual look and added fun sneakers with neon yellow furry details and found the perfect spot for our happy photo shoot. I hope you all like it! Have a great weekend, everyone!

• Recap | October •

By Posted on 0 1.5K views

Okay, okay, something’s extremely wrong with my timing – it’s almost December and there’s still no October recap online yet! So here we go… As you can imagine, my “new life” is pretty busy and I’m trying to focus on my work, since I have to make some money to be able to continue living here in Hamburg. Right now, it’s a pretty tricky situation and I’m hoping that in the end, everything will turn out alright and fine and that I don’t have to go back to “Plan Z” – going back home to my parents. But hey, that’s nothing for a recap post, it’s gonna be something for a #TTGU post that I want to write in the near future. Until then, let’s have a look at my highlights from October!

I was supposed to start working on October 2, but I caught a cold and was pretty knocked out, so I could only start at the second week of October. No worries, though, I’m still learning a lot, but it’s also a lot of fun and I really have amazing colleagues with whom work doesn’t feel like work. :) And there are so many lovely clients! It’s fun to help them choosing the right outfit and feeling a bit more self-confident and yes, I’m also super proud that especially thanks to my Instagram Stories (I keep uploading my ‘work look of the day’, so feel free to stop by my →  Instagram profile), there are also people coming around to see me. :) It’s so great to meet you and get to know you!

I had it already checked off my →  #SingleBucketList 2018, but I went for it for a second time: I went to another concert! Yay! This time, I didn’t have to travel far, because it was a concert here in Hamburg – I went to see Beach House, one of my favorite bands, which you may know from my musical recap of 2017. And it was an amazing evening, absolutely stunning. And yes: I went there alone again!

But here’s another point of my bucket list: go to a bar alone! I actually did it! At first, it felt weird and I was a bit nervous, but I felt like doing it and just went for it. Done. It was absolutely fine and even though I felt a little bit uncomfortable in the beginning, I quickly got used to it and already did it a few times more. Super easy, since I’m an extrovert and communicative person! I’m pretty proud that I made it happen. :)

Last big event of October was a vernissage which happened to be a huge meet-up of so many people from the plus-size blogosphere! There were people I haven’t seen in about 4 years and it was like a class reunion. So much love and →  so many positive vibes! And a great vernissage!

• Recap | September •

By Posted on 6 2.6K views

Time flies! October’s almost over and I haven’t even written my September recap yet! I’ve really been pretty busy, and here’s what happened last month…

September started with the year’s most fashionable event – the Plus Size Fashion Days! I still have to write an extra post about it, so I hope that you can still be a bit patient with me – I’ll post as many pictures as possible!! And I really hope that – as every year – there’ll be a video as well! :) This year, my mom finally made it to the show – she visited me at home and went to see me on the catwalk and we spent a day in Hamburg together. I’m still happy that I got to have her here with me. ♥

I had two trial days at my now new job, in order to see if I like it and if we’re a match – and I got the job. Right now it’s just a temporary work thingy, but we’ll see how everything works out and maybe make it a part-time job! :) I’m happy to let you know that I’m working at the Kurvenhaus now, so if you’re here and looking for a plus-size shop in Hamburg, come around! :)

September was my sunset month – I wanted to see as many sunsets as possible, sitting at my happy place. Well, didn’t work out as good as planned, but I got to see four stunning sunsets and took a lot of pictures. I also met a few friends and also new people and had a great time! Especially at the Junipalooza (it’s a Gin tasting festival), where I made new friends and found the most amazing Gin ever (Warner Edwards “Rhubarb Gin” – gosh, it’s just perfect!).

And yeah, September 26 was the most important day of the month – my divorce! I wrote about it → in this post and with this, that whole chapter of my life is finally over and I can’t wait to continue my marvellous life! :)

• Lu zieht an. x Süperb | Cold Shoulder •

By Posted on 8 2.7K views

[Werbung | Advertisement – collaboration with Süperb & Secondella]

There’s finally a new outfit for you! And good news: the dress is still available and on SALE! :) I’ve teamed up with the local plus-size brand Süperb and the local luxury second hand shop Secondella for a photo shoot and some new looks and this is the first one I want to show you! Good thing it’s still warm enough so if you feel like getting this amazing cold-shoulder dress, you’ll even be able to wear it just like that and not freeze to death (or let’s say: your shoulder will not be too cold, haha!). ;)

I got the chance to meet the designer, Klara Stenzel, and have a private fitting with her and get to know the brand and I must say that I love the idea behind the brand, which is all about the perfect fit. The clothes are perfectly tailored and will definitely make your curves look their best! This dress is definitely a bestseller and also my personal favorite, even though there are a lot more amazing pieces and you’ll get to know a few more of them, so stay tuned!

I’m also extremely happy that I got Secondella as my second (haha!) partner for the shoot, because I got to choose perfectly matching accessories (and was horribly sad that I had to give them back, because I love them all!) so we could create these cool looks. And of course, I’m also happy that I got to work with one of my favorite photographers, Julia Marie Werner – she’s absolutely amazing and I adore her work, you should have a look at her page! This cute guy next to me is her lovely dog Tschikko and we felt like he’s the perfect photo partner for me – #couplegoals, haha! ;)
