• Recap & Thoughts | #BeachBodyNotSorry 2017 •

As usual, I want to do a short recap after my #BeachBodyNotSorry project and share a few more thoughts about the looks with you. I know that this year’s project wasn’t that “beachy” at all because of the photos I had to take in our garden. I only managed to do one shoot in Hamburg at the Elbe and even this one isn’t at the beach. I’m a little sad about this because, of course, beachwear looks best at the beach. But sometimes, we have to change our plans. And wearing your bikini and swimsuit at home is no shame at all. :) At least I got the chance to spend some time in the sun during a super hot and beautiful summer here in the south of Germany.

As every year, it’s extremely important to me to show you that beach wear is for everyone. You don’t need to hide and you don’t need to wrap yourself in tons of fabric so nobody will notice that you’re not skinny. I’m pretty sure that you all want to have fun in the summer and that nobody wants to sweat in long-sleeved clothes instead of jumping into the water. I also want you to see a body that’s not photoshopped or somehow “perfect”. I have some major cellulite around my thighs, I have stretch marks around my belly and hips (which you can’t see this time because of the high-waisted pants or swimsuits), I have a hanging belly, I’m super white,… The world is still missing enough unretouched photos and “natural” bodies.

P.S.: You can find two exclusive pictures (one of a not shown look on the blog) on Instagram, so don’t forget to check my account – @luziehtan! ;)

There are posts that aren’t written as easily as you’d think. Today’s post is one of them. I’m still not ready to tell you exactly what happened cause it’s a long and disturbing story and I will need some time to find the right words for it. I just feel like right now, I’m finally ready to write down that I’m single again.

It’s hard to read these words after such a long time in a relationship, after a marriage that didn’t even last three years, but I’m already at a point where I survived the hardest part and feel confident enough to share these news with you.

Being single again at 27 comes definitely unexpected. It’s weird and it’s not fun and I wish I wasn’t, because I’m clearly a person who doesn’t like to spend her time alone. Yet, I’m learning to be alone and I’m also learning how to be my own person of trust. As you can imagine, the separation led me to start the therapy of which I already told you in June. This was an important step of my evolution. As I told you, I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety for a long time and something as horrible as what happened now definitely put me in the worst state one can be.

Even though I’m not completely ready yet to take you with me on this story of my new journey, my new start, I feel like I’m on a good way and the path is leading me to a better version of myself. Even though I hate being alone (which I’m actually not, cause I’m living with my parents right now and I feel safe and loved), I’m pretty sure that all this is a good thing for me – it’s giving me a new chance to get to know myself and evolve from depression and too much fear to a strong and independent woman – and I’m already making a lot of new steps.

CinemaxX kindly invited me to watch “Embrace” with a few other lovely women (best company ever to watch this movie!) on May 11. I know it’s been some time, but of course, I want to drop a few lines about the movie and what I think about it.

You all know that body positivity is my daily routine. It’s very important to me and when other women share the same message, it makes me very happy. The fact that the documentary movie “Embrace” found its way into German theaters is so amazing, even though it was very disappointing to see that in most of the cinemas who showed it, the movie was only played once on one single day. This documentary should be obligatory for young people – mainly girls, of course, but also boys. Because they also know the struggle of body shaming and self-hate. And if they don’t, they might learn an important lesson about women and how it is and feels like to live in a body that’s never good enough – until you decide for yourself to change this feeling and embrace yourself.

• Private XV | Naked •

By Posted on 28 2.9K views

I guess you can see what today’s Private post is about – well, it’s not about literally being naked, but the real #nomakeup without exceptions. No foundation, no concealer, no mascara, no filter. Because this world needs to see more naturalness, more realness – and less “perfection”. The picture above was taken right after removing my make-up and I felt beautiful at this moment. The ones below show my happy self after taking a shower (yup, these are selfies and the sun was shining so brightly I couldn’t help but take some shining pictures!). :)

To be honest, today’s post is not a favorite thing for me to do because I love make-up, I’ve loved playing with it since I was a little kid, and I love wearing it to make myself feel ready to face the world. I love showing me like this, all made up. It sounds pretty dramatic, I know, but make-up is kind of my cocoon when I want to feel great and beautiful. And this is a fact that actually makes me a bit sad – because we’re all beautiful without make-up. We don’t need to hide behind several layers of BB Creams and powder, behind shimmering eye shadow and the perfect “cat eye” liner. And yet people expect a woman to wear make-up – because that’s what a woman’s supposed to do. A woman’s supposed to be pretty. If she isn’t/doesn’t wear make-up, she “doesn’t care about herself” and “isn’t interested in looking good”. Brands sell stuff to make you “shine bright like a diamond”, give us the “fake lashes look” and plump up our lips to be “kissable”. Celebrities post their #wokeuplikethis pics on Instagram and simply “forget” to mention the one-hour routine with their make-up artists before posting a selfie with the hashtag #nomakeup (but hey: it’s really not that easy to achieve a natural-looking make-up, it’s even harder to do than smoky eyes!). But why lie to us? Lie to ourselves? Because women need to look pretty?

With today’s post I want to contribute to the real #nomakeup thing – because I like myself like this. I go out like this and I love my face without make-up (as much as I love the routine of putting on all these products and seeing the final result – it’s just so fascinating!). This is me at my purest.
