Babyface vs Today. Dann mache ich halt auch bei der #10yearschallenge mit! Auf dem ersten Bild war ich 19, auf dem zweiten noch 28 - gehe ab nächstem Monat steil auf die 30 zu, ha! Ich finde ja, die 10 Jahre haben mir gut getan, sowohl optisch, als auch erfahrungsmäßig, wobei 8 davon nicht viel gebracht haben, erst in den letzten 2 ist ordentlich was passiert bei mir. Aber so ist das halt - man wird älter, man wird weiser. Manchmal auch nicht, ist auch okay. Hauptsache, man gibt sich Mühe. Man darf auch Fehler machen und scheitern, denn nur so lernt man. Und das Wichtigste: niemals aufgeben. ♥️

New year - same me! Still single (and happy!), still a friend of underwear and no-make-up selfies (cause „duh!“), still in love with great drinks (even though it‘s just a Gin Tonic in my hand). Let‘s hope that 2019 is gonna be as awesome as we all expect it to be! ♥️

New year - same me!...

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Heute war der letzte Arbeitstag des Jahres und weil es ja fast schon Silvester ist, hab‘ ich mich für ordentlich Glitzer entschieden. Mein Silvester wird ja gemütlich daheim ablaufen. Das ist somit mein letzter „Work Look“ 2018 und ich bin gespannt, was ich euch nächstes Jahr so präsentiere, wenn ich im @kurvenhaus_hamburg arbeite. 😉 Und Zeit für einen Friseurtermin wird‘s auch (stimmt‘s, @sha_di___ ? 🙈♥️). Der Look ist übrigens bis auf die Boots und den BH komplett vom Kurvenhaus oder Crispy (Blazer von Zizzi, Top von Zizzi und Jeans von Levi‘s). ✌🏻 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

• Time to grow up | IV – About getting divorced and unspoken words… •

By Posted on 18 5.4K views

It’s been a bit more than two weeks now, since I finally got divorced after about one year and a half. This was the last step of finishing a chapter of my life. I’ve been thinking a lot about what to write in this blog post. I feel like the divorce is putting a new label on me, even though I’m finally free. Even though I’ve been literally waiting every day for this moment, when my marriage is finally officially over. It felt like a huge weight lift from my heart when I came out of the court after those fifteen minutes, during which I had to see my ex for the last time and officially state that this marriage is over and that I definitely don’t pretend to make it work again. But being a divorced woman kind of labels me, even though it does not define me. This is something I will have to accept and surely will, as soon as possible. I’m glad that it’s over and I want to wear this label as proud as I can, because it all changed me in the most positive way.

The only thing is: I wanted to finally say something and had no chance to do so. You must know that our break-up happened without any personal contact. My ex decided to end our relationship taking the easiest way out: leaving me at my parents, driving back home alone without telling me so, hiding somewhere when I came after him, and then simply writing me a message on WhatsApp that it’s over. It was humiliating. I mean, the person I’ve spent 8 years with, decided to treat me so disrespectfully to end a marriage the most inappropriate way – via text message. And not even with an explanation. Back then, I decided to just take it like this and not say anything. But with the time going by, I wrote a letter to him which I actually wanted to give him on the day of our divorce. A letter which, at first, I was hoping he’d read because I had so much to say about the way he broke up with me. A letter which I almost forgot of after some time because it just became irrelevant – there was no need to say anything anymore. Just one last sentence.

But I didn’t say it. There was no chance to say it. So I’m writing it down.

I’m thankful for the past 18 months. Thankful for the chance to rewrite my life, to change myself, to be who I am now and who I’m going to be in the future. I’m not thankful for how I was „disposed“ but thankful for the decision to do it like this because it made everything easier for me. I’m thankful for the chance to understand that a person like this was never worth it to make my happiness and my life dependent of him, and to understand that I’m the only one to make my life the life I want to live. I don’t need someone else to make me happy.

So here it goes:

Thank you.

• Recap | August •

By Posted on 3 4.2K views

Whoa, what happened? It’s been some time since I last updated you guys on the blog and I’m really sorry – I guess, life has happened, and an absolutely amazing summer which I tried to enjoy to the fullest. So… let’s recap August!

August started with my first festival ever – “A Summer’s Tale”. But I didn’t go there as a visitor, I went there for work. Three days of foodtruck fun at a pretty nice festival, even though unfortunately, I didn’t pick up much of the music (and missed one amazing band, Grizzly Bear, but shit happens, huh?). It definitely wasn’t easy, to be honest, I was completely exhausted after these days cause it was super hot and therefore even hotter in the truck and we were all working real hard. But it was worth it. Even though I realized that this won’t be my favorite job experience ever. It’s fun to work with people and I like to communicate with everybody, but physically, it’s way too hard for me (to be honest). Apparently, life saw this too and yelled “Hold my beer!”, cause my next job experience is about to happen soon and I’m excited to see where it’s gonna lead me to…

I finally had a new photo shoot in August, with the most wonderful → Julia Marie Werner, in collaboration with a → friend’s agency and the brands → Süperb and → Secondella, and I can’t wait to show you the cool looks we shot on yet another hot summer day. :)

I went to a casting for a movie in Berlin, had my first job interview, met new friends, including a visit from → Mona from the Netherlands, and I had a model job on a little fashion show at the Kurvenhaus, a local plus-size store here in Hamburg, just a week before the Plus Size Fashion Days (but these remain for the September recap). :)

All in all, August was a very hot month, full of new experiences and wonderful people. I got to know who my friends are and went on a few strolls through the city, found two new jobs, but am still searching for a new place to live, so that’s gonna stay interesting for a while. But I’m on it. And I’m curious to see what’s gonna happen next!

I finally found the perfect shoes for this dress, a few months ago in the SALE! So happy about this, because they’re super comfy and elegant. And these kinds of shoes are the best. :) I’ve never really been a very maritime person, never explicitly bought stuff like that – but two years ago, I received this amazing dress from Marina Rinaldi. And since I wanted something to remind me of my comeback to Hamburg, I thought that these sea horse mules are just perfect. Plus, they perfectly match the dress. :)

• Time to grow up | III – About fears and worries… •

By Posted on 20 7.1K views

Now that everything got pretty much serious, after → moving and my start into the „normal“ work life (even though that was kinda „light“, since it’s still not a very regular story), being „alone“ (even though I’m sharing a flat with my friend, I’m most of the time on my own) and the whole changing, there are a few fears that said hello again and about which I want to write today. Who knows, maybe it helps to put them into words and see what you’re about to fight – kind of a #BucketListofFears.
