[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Eigentlich dreht man sowas Hübschem ja nicht den Rücken zu, aber wie soll ich euch sonst ein kitschiges Pärchenfoto von mir und meiner großen Liebe präsentieren? ♥️

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Another day, another look. Hatte letztens mal meine unpraktischste Bluse zum arbeiten an. Mit den Ärmeln kann man super Sachen aufsammeln und an Dingen hängenbleiben. Ich mag sie trotzdem. 🖤 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

Mood.

Mood.

Fancy Spot mit lustiger Hand - letztens dann doch mal vor der Arbeit ein nettes Plätzchen für ein schnelles Foto gefunden, aber das klappt auch nicht immer. Trotzdem: hier mal wieder ganz in schwarz, mit meinen bequemen Sneakern und natürlich mit Brille. 🤓 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

Mal die Perspektive wechseln... aus der Ecke hab‘ ich die Elbphi nämlich noch nie angeschaut. Dabei ist es dort irgendwie ganz besonders schön! ♥️ #hamburgloveistruelove

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Long Time no Spiegelselfies im Kurvenhaus - ich war vorgestern kurz dort und hab‘ mal wieder ein bisschen gestöbert, da konnte ich es mir nicht nehmen lassen, mal wieder ein Outfitfoto im Lieblingsspiegel zu machen. 🤓✌🏻 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

[Werbung | Advertisement] Nach Sushi kommt... genau, Waffeln. 😍 Wohlverdient nach dem Feierabend gestern gab‘s mal was Süßes, bevor ich nach 10 Jahren mal wieder richtig feiern war (say whaaaaat?). War auf jeden Fall lecker und danach ist man pappsatt, beste Basis für einen lustigen Abend! Vielen Dank @wonder_waffel @wonderwaffel_hamburg! ♥️ #hamburg #hamburgfood #hamburgfoodie #wonderwaffelhamburg

[Werbung | Advertisement] Mein 4800stes Bild zeigt mich bei dem, was ich am liebsten tue: Sushi essen. Auch wenn‘s mir für meine Verhältnisse in der Mittagspause ein bisschen zu schnell gehen muss, bin ich aber ganz dankbar, dass ich ab und zu mal bei @yoshi.im.alsterhaus vorbeischauen kann, um mich für solche Wochen wie diese zu belohnen, wenn ich 3 Tage hintereinander von 9:45 bis 20 Uhr arbeiten muss. Die Arbeit macht natürlich nach wie vor Spaß, aber grad Tag 3 von 3 ist schon irgendwie so eine Art Endgegner für die Füße (egal, wie bequem die Schuhe sind). Ich glaub‘ ja immer noch nicht, dass ich mich daran wirklich gewöhnen werde, aber das leckere Sushi macht es irgendwie wieder gut. ♥️ Vielleicht mag ja nächstes Mal jemand mitkommen? Ich schicke euch liebste Grüße aus dem Feierabend! Morgen noch, dann ist Wochenendeeee! 🎉 P.S.: Können wir bitte mal drüber sprechen, wie perfekt diese Nigiris aussehen?? Nicht mal nen Filter brauchen die! 😍🤤 #alsterhaus #japanesefood #japanisch #kobebeef #sushi #sushihamburg #yoshiimalsterhaus

Feeling my new glasses. 🤓 Not sure how I‘m gonna survive these hell-ish temperatures this week at work tho. Can’t show up in a bikini, sad fact.

Feeling my new glasses. 🤓...

[Werbung | Advertisement] Und mal wieder ein Futtergruß aus der Mittagspause! Dieses Mal nach meinem selbstgemachten Salat mit einem leckeren @foodloose Nussriegel! Ich hab‘ da eine schöne Auswahl bekommen, die mir die Mittagspause (wortwörtlich) versüßt und obwohl ich noch nicht alle probiert habe, bin ich wohl jetzt schon der größte Fan von „Coco Caramella“! Hätte ich mal zwei davon mitgenommen, haha! Mit dem Code „summer19“ gibt’s momentan übrigens 15% auf das ganze @foodloose Sortiment! 🤓 #eatbettersnacks #foodloose

You know that situation – after 8 years in a relationship you get kicked via WhatsApp (very short version of my break-up) and then you’re kinda lost with your 27 years – on one hand, because you’re desperately sad, on the other hand, because you somehow got used to that other person and living together with him. You already know what happened → after the break-up, and I’m proud that I’m able to say that I fought my way back into life. I worked hard on my anxiety, created a → bucket list and already checked off a few things, and I had a big goal: coming back to Hamburg.

I finally reached that goal last Sunday and now I’m diving deep into a new adventure. Growing up. With 28. Truth is: I stand by what I’ve done in my life and I stand by my decisions and who I am – but I don’t think that I’m actually grown-up yet (well, when are you?). I had a very sheltered childhood, always felt safe and then ended up in a long-term relationship – I’ve never been alone and I had always got it made, first from my parents, then from my now ex. And then I got thrown into ice-cold water and rescued myself back to my mom and dad – I think that’s a logical reaction, if you’re forced to leave the appartment in which you were living together and can’t find an own place that fast and cannot afford the costs because – and that’s what happens if a blog is also based on pictures – your job is ruined after a separation.

I want to be different. Don’t get me wrong, this is not going to be an “I’m so much better than the others” or “I’m such a special snowflake” post – but it’s going to be an honest one telling you that the current image of plus-size bloggers and/or influencers does not make me happy. In fact, I’m pretty annoyed right now by the whole way of appearance the business chose to go for. And I’m annoyed by the fact that I’m somehow a part of it.

I am definitely not prudish or pedantic, but I believe that the whole current “sex sells” thing is kind of becoming too much and also not really helpful for how plus-size actually wants to be seen by the world. We keep asking for acceptance and tolerance and at the same time there are so many of my colleagues posting clearly sexual, sometimes even pretty cheap-looking pictures or videos of them on Social Media, obviously looking for attention and craving for followers – not or just partly for the actual body positivity movement.

Yes, I myself have also already posted lots of photos of myself in underwear, even naked, and I’m a true believer that it has to be and is a part of body positivity and empowerment to love and also show yourself in a sexy way. But I feel like it’s kind of getting out of control and becoming a provocation and show-off instead of an actual statement.

I believe that sexuality and also pictures showing that fat people are sexy and have sex are important. These pictures have to be seen as well as skinny peoples’ sexuality in order to change something. The media needs women “like us” to show themselves the same way as skinny women in ads and on international catwalks. The world needs to see women of all kinds, without the “magic” of Photoshop but with the power of self-love and self-confidence that empowers other women to understand that they are amazing just the way they are. There is no need to look like a model, no need to try to look like an unrealistic ideal, no need to change yourself and force yourself into something you’re not. This also applies to disabled bodies, trans bodies and any other body that does not reflect our society’s ideal body type – the skinny and photoshopped one.

But I also believe that plus-size women can be and are so much more than just sexy. I believe that we don’t need to show ourselves all of the time in underwear or naked or upload provocatively sexual pictures when especially on Social Media the actual feedback comes mostly from very disgusting examples of men who don’t even give a fuck about our [body positivity] message but keep telling us how hot we are and then sending us dick pics or harassing us in any other way, while there might be only a handful of women who do think that this is awesome, but still too brave, so they say that they’d never do this cause they’re afraid.

You guys know how important body positivity is to me. And this post is not supposed to shame my blogging and instagramming colleagues. Still, I want to be different. I don’t want to be a part of the “sex sells” movement. Because I feel that I don’t belong to that kind of movement anymore. I don’t wanna promote body positivity by being naked all the time. By shaking my boobs in front of a camera. By showing my naked butt fullsized on a picture. By typing trivial quotes under racy pictures of myself I’d only send to my imaginary boyfriend.

I want to keep writing texts, inspiring and motivating you through words and an actual message.

Of course I’ll still be posting some underwear pictures from time to time. Just because they’re a part of it and because I’m a firm believer that we have nothing to hide as plus-size women. I know that “sex sells” will always be a thing and that’s fine – it’s been like that since what feels like forever and that’s okay. I just don’t feel like being a part of that. I’m actually annoyed that I’ve been a part of that superficial and hollow subculture. Being a fashion blogger is indeed a pretty hollow job if you don’t make it special enough by having a message. And of course, it’s also okay to be one without having a message – you don’t always have to have something to say and it’s not always about being a role model. I’ve never really seen myself as one, even though I know about the responsibility I have by posting pictures of me – however they look like. I know that I want to empower other women (and all genders/identities), I know that I want to motivate and inspire people. Show that being fat is not a problem or the end of the world. You are what you make of it. It’s on you to choose your way. And I chose mine.

• Hormone free | Update •

Today’s marks exactly six months after I’ve decided to → stop taking the pill! Yay! As promised, I want to do an update with my experiences after quitting the pill. The next one will be after one year in total, so see you again in December! ;) Until then, here’s what happened in the last six months and how I’ve been doing. I really hope that my experiences will help other women to see that a life without the pill is a great decision and even though there are some cons on the list, it’s definitely a better choice to live a life without that little hormone bomb – if you can. Of course, there are cases in which the pill is a solution for certain problems and I will not say that the pill is “all evil”, but if you don’t need it, you should consider a life without it, even though it’s a pretty handy little thing.
