• Merry Christmas | Giveaway [CLOSED] •

My dear readers! It’s finally that time of year again – Christmas is here! Tonight’s Christmas Eve and I hope that all of you are with their loved ones, their families and friends and that you’ll celebrate with loads of love and food. Cause that’s what matters most, right? It’s not about the presents – and yet, I’ve got something for you that will hopefully make at least two people happy, yay!

I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and tell you that you deserve all the best in the world. I know that many of you aren’t happy when they drive home for Christmas to their families and get fatshamed or have to listen to a list of other things that are wrong with you and it breaks my heart to know that such a wonderful time of the year keeps being misused for something that sad – even though most of the people doing this don’t even understand how much they’re breaking you. So please, don’t listen to what they say about your body or you in general, your life choices, your partner or the one you don’t have, or anything else that’s actually your own business.

I want you to know that you don’t need to believe all this as long as you’re happy with who you are and what you’re doing. And even if you’re not, there’s no use in trying to please them by belittling yourself through their words. All that matters is you and your feelings. Don’t let them be hurt! I would like to say to you that you should step up for yourself, tell them that this is not okay and that you don’t deserve to listen to all that crap and if they don’t understand, you should think about next Christmas with people who don’t take family reunions as an excuse to tell you you’re not good the way you are. Because you are! ♥

[Werbung | Advertisement – collaboration with Wundercurves]

I’ve known the girls and boys from → Wundercurves for quite some time now, but we only managed to do a collab now. The wait was worth it, cause I got to choose this amazing outfit and show you a special look for winter! :) 

I really like the idea behind Wundercurves – you get to choose from almost all plus-size shops on one place. By today, they’ve already got one of the biggest global selections of plus-size fashion. Plus, you can get inspired by their very own magazine and they’ve got this super cool “Insta Shop” where you can find looks from other plus-size bloggers and directly shop them (or similar pieces). And if you want to be a part of it, just add #Wundercurves to your outfit posts on Instagram. ;)

They asked me to do a winter outfit and I decided to search for something that’s cozy but also has that special twist (you know me, I can’t do anything without adding something a little different!). Of course, it had to be a coat and since “teddy coats” are pretty trending right now, I went for this tri-colored version which is perfectly cozy and warm for those cold wintery days. First, I thought about adding a nice sweater plus jeans, but since I’ve been showing you loads of pants in the last months, I chose a comfy knit dress. It’s pretty tight, I know, and I wish I could’ve gone one size up but XXL was the biggest size available and I must say that this is definitely not a 2X, it’s very much smaller.

For my special twist, I added the red overknee boots I’ve already told you about. Of course, the actual look I had in mind with them, is still coming, don’t worry, but don’t they look amazing in this combo, too? I think they’re just that special extra the look needed to become one of those typical Lu styles. ;)

No outfit post today but another wonderful illustration by my dear Katarina Kühl (the first one is → in this post). The original picture also features Hayley Hasselhoff (you can see it → here), but since today is my birthday and I want to do a special post, I thought it’d be nice to use this version, which she sent me so I can frame it for our apartment. :)

So, today I’m turning 27 and even though there won’t be a party today, I’ll celebrate with my family and on Saturday with my friends – of course with our annual Laser Tag battle and some delicious food afterwards. :) “Same procedure as every year, James…” – but I really love traditions and having fun with my friends is such a great one! Tomorrow, I’m flying to Milan for an event with Marina Rinaldi, so even a short trip is part of my birthday fun! :)

And because I like sharing, I’ve teamed up with the S&J family for another very special giveaway (don’t forget the denim package from Monday!). I had already promised you a giveaway on the occasion of my blogiversary, so today I’m combining both and here we go – this is what you can win:


The winner can choose a dress of her choice from the Scarlett & Jo range (excluding the Couture line). Above, you can see all outfits I already showed you on the blog, so believe me – this is not an easy choice because all of the pieces created by S&J are truly wonderful and a pleasure to wear! I couldn’t even choose my favorite, but I guess I remember that many of you loved → the striped dress I showed you at the end of the year. Good news is that you can finally pre-order it, not only in white with black stripes but also in black with white stripes (and it will also be available sometime in navy with white stripes, I guess for summer). So for all of you who were anxiously waiting to buy it (or maybe win it now!) – you can find it → here! :)

Back to the giveaway – all you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment by February 28 and tell me a little bit about you:

Where are you from? How did you find my blog (and for how long have you been a reader)? And is there something else you want to let me know? :)

This time, the giveaway is open for Europe, so please feel free to participate wherever in Europe you are from – I’m really looking forward to reading your comments! It’s always great to get to know you all better! :)

The winner is Sandra T. – congrats!

• Giveaway | Ganzkörpermassage bei Diana Otto [CLOSED] •
Sorry, this post is only available in → German.


Etwas, das man sich eindeutig zu selten gönnt, aber doch so wunderbar ist, ist wohl definitiv eine Massage. Es ist jetzt schon ein Weilchen her, dass ich “meine” Frau dafür gefunden habe – die liebe Diana, über die ich bereits → hier geschrieben hatte. Seitdem versuche ich, so oft es geht, bei ihr vorbeizuschauen, denn gerade als ein klassischer Bucklig-vorm-PC-Hocker ist mein Rücken (und vor allem mein Schulterbereich) ganz dankbar drum, wenn er nicht einfach nur ein paar gelegentliche Streicheleinheiten vom Mann bekommt, sondern auch mal fachmännisch entknotet wird. ;) Aber an der Stelle soll unbedingt noch erwähnt werden, wie grandios auch die Fußmassage ist! ;)

Und weil ich so zufrieden und glücklich mit Diana bin, haben wir uns gemeinsam überlegt, zum neuen Jahr auch jemanden von euch zu entspannen. Dafür gibt es eine 60-minütige Ganzkörpermassage in Dianas Zauberhänden von uns geschenkt. Außerdem habe ich mir von meiner Seite aus überlegt, daraus einen kleinen Verwöhnnachmittag zu machen und selbst vorbeizuschauen, damit wir vorher noch gemeinsam einen selbstgebackenen Kuchen essen und Tee trinken können, bevor es für den Gewinner ins muckelige Wellnessstübchen geht (ja, ich bin jetzt schon neidisch, hihi!). :) Vielleicht habt ihr darauf ja Lust?

Um zu gewinnen, müsst ihr Folgendes tun:

1. Gebt → Diana auf Facebook und gerne auch → mir auf Facebook ein Like. 2. Hinterlasst bis zum (einschließlich) 8. Januar 2017 hier einen Kommentar – dieses Mal ganz ohne Vorgabe, aber vielleicht habt ihr ja was Nettes zu erzählen? :) 3. Denkt daran, eure Mailadresse entweder im vorgegebenen Feld anzugeben oder, falls ihr mit Facebook kommentiert, einen aktiven Account zu verwenden, damit ich euch im Anschluss kontaktieren kann.

Wichtig: die Anreise wird nicht übernommen. Es wäre also gut, wenn ihr aus Hamburg oder Umgebung kommt oder das Ganze mit einem Ausflug hierher (lohnt sich ja schließlich auch nicht nur dafür!) kombinieren könnt/wollt. Das Gewinnspiel gilt lediglich für die Massage und gerne auch meine Anwesenheit mit Kuchen und Tee. ;) Außerdem sollte dieser Gutschein bitte dieses Jahr eingelöst werden, aber das genaue Datum wird mit dem Gewinner besprochen.

Gewonnen hat Marianne – herzlichen Glückwunsch! :)

Teilnehmer unter 18 Jahren brauchen eine Einverständniserklärung des/der Erziehungsberechtigten
– Der Gewinner wird nach Beendigung des Gewinnspiels in diesem Blogpost und unter seinem/ihrem Kommentar bekannt gegeben – ich bitte um anschließende Kontaktaufnahme per Mail (luziehtan @ hotmail . com), um den Gewinn zu erhalten
