Best Birthday Gift EVER. ♥️

Best Birthday Gift EVER. ♥️

Sorry, dass es momentan keine neuen Fotos von mir gibt, der Februar hat mich voll erwischt. 😷 Als kleine Entschädigung gibt’s einen Spucki in vier Akten - das Thunfischmanöver. In Wahrheit giert er natürlich auf den Salat. 🤓 Thunfisch hatte er nämlich zu dem Zeitpunkt schon längst bekommen! Diese kleine Bilderserie ist noch aus dem letzten Jahr und in der Horror-WG entstanden - in wenigen Tagen haben wir uns wieder und dann hole ich Spucki zurück nach Hamburg. Dann sind wir endlich wieder vereint, in einer Wohnung nur für uns zwei. Ich bin fast so aufgeregt wie beim ersten Mal, als er endlich zu mir durfte. ♥️

Sorry, dass es momentan keine...

Remembering those easy summer evenings, those little moments without any worries, with my baby boy, the most perfect view, stunning sunsets at every end of the day, music surrounding us two while sitting there on the window... I want them back. And a functioning nose (God, I hate being sick). But most of all, I wish for inner peace, I wanna be calm on the inside and know that everything’s okay, that everything’s gonna turn out fine. And just for once I want to know how it feels like when everything actually goes fine and smooth. I’m sick of struggling. I’m sick of fighting all the time. I know I’m strong but I’m sick of having to be strong every second of the day. Dear Universe, if you can hear me and are willing to grant me a wish: please guide me to a good life, a happy life and take away all those worries and struggles. 🙏🏻 #realtalk

Aus den Archiven von vor 2 Jahren - als ich mit einer lieben Freundin Tee trinken war und wir ganz schön viel gelacht haben (ich grunze übrigens, wenn ich mich nicht mehr einkriegen kann). Oh, was freu‘ ich mich schon drauf, Ende Februar im Urlaub in die Heimat zu fahren, runterzukommen, meine Eltern in die Arme zu nehmen, Spucki auf dem Schoß zu haben und meinen 30. Geburtstag im kleinen Kreis mit Freunden zu feiern. Und dann hoffentlich wieder genauso viel zu lachen! ♥️

Um die Woche komplett zu machen, gibt‘s dann noch mein Sonntagsoutfit für euch. Den freien Tag verbringe ich mit Filmen im Bett und erhole mich vor allem von gestern, damit ich morgen direkt wieder mit 10 Stunden in die neue Woche starten kann. Happy Sunday, ihr Lieben! 😘 P.S.: Ja, Nippel - weil: no bra, no problems.

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Letzter Arbeitstag der Woche - ich bin ganz schön im Eimer, aber das soll mir natürlich niemand ansehen, also heute besonders hübsch gemacht in schwarz. Mein allerliebster Lieblingsrock ist mir mittlerweile zu groß und das macht mich traurig, aber mit einem Gürtel kann man ihn noch einigermaßen fixieren. Die Bluse ist zu kurz, um sie zu Hosen zu tragen, also ist das hier die perfekte Kombi bei zwei schwierigen Kandidaten für ordentliche Outfits. Ich hoffe, die meisten von euch müssen nicht samstags arbeiten, aber ich wünsche euch allen einen wunderbaren Tag! 🖤 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Eine Arbeitswoche mit Lu - heute mal mit ein bisschen Ausschnitt. Zur Feier des Tages wurde ich heute von einer Kundin zur Schwangerschaft beglückwünscht - kann man auch mal machen. Im Gegenzug wurde ich heute aber überschwänglich gelobt, für besonders nette und (Achtung!) kompetente Beratung! Wenn ihr also eine Brille braucht, wisst ihr Bescheid, zu wem ihr kommen müsst. Meine Möppis und ich empfehlen euch da gern was Schönes! So. Morgen noch. Vielleicht doch nochmal ein Kleid? Mal sehen. Erst mal duschen und dann ab ins Bett. Ein bisschen kränkel‘ ich und um ehrlich zu sein, sind die drei 10-Stunden-Tage (trotz einer Stunde Pause) doch immer noch ziemlich bescheiden, vor allem, wenn Tag 3/3 auf einen Samstag fällt, da ist nämlich Anarchie im Laden. Was man nicht alles für sein Gehalt tut...

I’m finally ready to show you all photos and the video of this year’s → Plus Size Fashion Days in Hamburg. It’s been an incredibly exciting time and I’m proud to say that this was my third time on the catwalk and I’ve been booked by so many brands – it was a pleasure and honor to walk for them and it’s so great to know that they trust me to represent them.

Above, you can see a picture from the rehearsal – this is my most casual self: black leggings, black t-shirt, sneakers and a cozy cardigan (it was pretty cold at the location during the training, fittings and rehearsals).

As every year, I feel like these are the most intense days of the year. I’m pretty sure, actual models don’t think so as this is their job – but for me as the tiny nugget I am, this is something so special and exciting and at the same time horribly exhausting because there’s so much to do around the final result, the fashion show. It’s very stressful, positively, though, but I’m pretty much completely useless after the event. Plus, this year, I got very sick afterwards. But it’s worth it. This is such an important event, with such a honorable message. An event of true diversity in terms of plus size, with people of different sizes, different heights, different skin tones, different stories, beginners and professionals, women and men. And this is exactly what the world needs. ♥

In the beginning of January, I went to a very special store opening – “Vollkommen.Braut.” is a curvy bridal concept store and as you can imagine, this means: plus-size pleasure all around. :)

I somehow made the mistake not to try on a wedding dress during the preparations for our wedding because I thought that since it was only a civil wedding, I didn’t need a “real” dress and would only be sad after trying a few on. Well, I was right – but I also missed the incredible feeling of looking like a princess and how amazing it is to wear a wedding dress. Even if it’s only for a few pictures during an event. I mean: how stunning must it be to try on dresses for your wedding and then finding “the one” (to be honest, I think I even found it that day, but that’s a different story, haha!)?

But let’s talk about the store: I decided to do a little post about it because I’m sure that there are a few brides-to-be out there searching for THE DRESS. :) The selection at “Vollkommen.Braut.” starts from EU size 44 and goes up to a 58+, featuring brands like Callista (I’d say that this is the brand you have to try!), Bridalstar, Romantica of Devon, Lohrengel and Ladybird. And of course, since this is a concept store, you won’t only find dresses but also accessories and shoes and loads of inspiration. The collaborating local stores and service providers are “Curvy Shapes” (lingerie), “Bunny & Scott” (cupcakes and cakepops), “urban spa” (beauty), “Blütezeit” (florist), “Marryhair” (hair stylist), “Carmen Boch” (goldsmith) and “Wortkunst mit Herz” (speeches and weddings).

The store isn’t too big but that’s just what makes it perfect. Making an appointment means that you’ll have the whole store just for yourself and your family and friends, so you can try on your favorite dresses with no stress, nobody watching and therefore be totally relaxed. The two owners, Regina and Nora, are absolute pros when it comes to bridal dresses and will assist you perfectly!

After the click you’ll find some impressions of the day, including a few cellphone snapshots of me wearing some amazing dresses! ;)

P.S.: If you book an appointment and mention that I’m the one who brought you there, you’ll receive a so-called “Welcome Pass”, which means you will be gifted a voucher for an accessory that matches your dress. ♥

From October 28 to 30, it was finally time for the Plus Size Fashion Days again. I’ve been super excited because this year, I was booked more often than last time, got the chance to present a piece designed by me and was part of the → “BODYLOVE” walk by Silvana Denker and Happy Size (which meant: getting almost naked again!).

Like last year, because of the catwalk training, fitting and rehearsals, unfortunately I had no time to visit the workshops and daytime events around the show, so I can’t tell you more about them, but I visited the opening party and on the last day, I was able to have a look at the marketplace. All in all, these were some super busy and positively stressful days, just like last year. The feelings are intense during the preparations, it’s a mixture of happiness (especially because of all those amazing people, the atmosphere is super friendly and helpful and I absolutely appreciate this! ♥) and nervousness, a bit of fear (“Will I trip on the catwalk?”) and loads of excitement. The adrenaline level seconds before the first walk is incredibly high and the feeling when you step out into the light, pose and see all the faces looking at you is amazing. Oh, the goosebumps! It’s simply great. And the best reward for everything you’ve done the days before the show.

Last week, I went to a very special event with five amazing girls – from left to right: Cécile, Sofia, Farina, me, Sophia and Verena. We were invited by → C&A to talk about strong women and how fashion influences personalities, and for a makeover which each of us did for another girl. I was styled by Sophia and had the pleasure to dress up Verena. It was an exciting day and we had lots of fun together, as you can see in the pictures! ;)

There’s also a video up on the → C&A Blog, don’t forget to watch it! ;)

I’ve already talked about the effect of fashion and everything that’s possible with it in my → last post, but I want to say again how fascinating it is that fashion is able to either influence and enhance someone’s personality or change it (in a positive way). However you feel on a day, you can make your style look like it or give it a completely different touch. You can accentuate special features of yourself or – if you feel like it – hide something you’re not 100% happy with. Fashion is for everyone and that’s why we shouldn’t be limited in our possibilities. Even though our bodies are different, we should all be able to wear whatever we want, whether we’re skinny or fat, tall or short, blonde or brunette,… Let’s all express ourselves through fashion!

Dressing up someone else can be super easy if you know this person. It’s funny how you instantly know what you want her to wear when you do this kind of makeover. And even if you don’t, it’s cool to see how you can make the person look and maybe even influence her own style. It was great to see our makeovers at the end of the day – everybody chose the right look for the other girl – and I think that we all look absolutely amazing!
