#nocaptionneeded • …and actually no more words, either. ;) Just love – for this beautiful sunset, the wonderful day I spent before I saw this and everyone who’s reading this. ♥
#truewords • A few quotes that I reposted…
The first one is all about my work: it’s not about promoting obesity or an unhealthy lifestyle or saying that being fat is the best thing in the world – it’s about promoting to love yourself. Love yourself so much that you’re not afraid of showing it. And with that I want to inspire you to give “real” fashion a try, to be creative and play around with clothes and different styles! Don’t give up and be an inspiration for others too! And if I did this all for only one person who’s changed their mind, I’ve totally reached my goal! :)
The second one is actually a very sad truth, but believe me: it’s absolutely worth it. Being yourself is the best freedom ever and there’s no need to be like anyone else, even though they’re great too. But for everyone that you think might have a better life and be happier than you, there is someone who thinks exactly the same about you. Think about it! ;)
The third one is a little rant, yes – but to be honest, this is something that keeps frustrating me about my work as a blogger. Sure, not everyone treats me like that, but: how often do I receive e-mails from potential business partners who “found my blog and love it” and want to work with me. But when I tell them what my work is worth, they “don’t have any budget”, “are a start-up company” or just don’t answer anymore.
I’m not a little girl in front of a PC playing around with “Paint”. I may have started my work as a blogger from nothing, but it’s my job. I do not only spend passion and love on it, but also time, hard work and money. I really wish that people would appreciate that.
#helloberlin • I spent a great evening with Urban Decay in Berlin for their launch of the NAKED Smoky palette (find my review → here) and checked in at the Hotel de Rome (thinking about a tiny little review of the room – is that something you’d be interested in? Usually, it’s only one stay with events…). I’m normally not someone who calls for the room service, but this Club Sandwich (sooooo good!) was much needed after a loooong day without enough food (all brands should consider making plus-size versions of their snacks at events because they’re delicious but way too small! ;)).
#outfitpreview • I’m almost done with my → #BeachBodyNotSorry posts (still got two looks to shoot and two to post, so…), so today I’ve got a little preview of two “normal” outfits for you. The left one is for persona by Marina Rinaldi who sent me this beautiful shirt which I combined with my good old petticoat skirt, the one in the middle is probably my favorite outfit of the year – a mixture of casual and sexy thanks to H&M+ and Agent Provocateur ;), and the right one is one of six looks that I’m currently shooting for the latest Anna Scholz x sheego collection – you’ll soon get to see my very own lookbook on our blogs!
#happymakers • I’m not asking for much: little black boxes and what’s inside (especially when it fits!) make me very happy, sushi from my favorite sushi man back home does not only stuff me but also makes me smile, and a cold shower is everything – at the moment, summer in Germany is hot, sticky and sweaty – is there anyone who’d like to buy me a huge rain shower? :)
#welovehh • Isn’t this one of the most beautiful views you’ve ever seen? :)
