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...

• Recap | October •

By Posted on 2 4.9K views

Okay, okay, something’s extremely wrong with my timing – it’s almost December and there’s still no October recap online yet! So here we go… As you can imagine, my “new life” is pretty busy and I’m trying to focus on my work, since I have to make some money to be able to continue living here in Hamburg. Right now, it’s a pretty tricky situation and I’m hoping that in the end, everything will turn out alright and fine and that I don’t have to go back to “Plan Z” – going back home to my parents. But hey, that’s nothing for a recap post, it’s gonna be something for a #TTGU post that I want to write in the near future. Until then, let’s have a look at my highlights from October!

I was supposed to start working on October 2, but I caught a cold and was pretty knocked out, so I could only start at the second week of October. No worries, though, I’m still learning a lot, but it’s also a lot of fun and I really have amazing colleagues with whom work doesn’t feel like work. :) And there are so many lovely clients! It’s fun to help them choosing the right outfit and feeling a bit more self-confident and yes, I’m also super proud that especially thanks to my Instagram Stories (I keep uploading my ‘work look of the day’, so feel free to stop by my →  Instagram profile), there are also people coming around to see me. :) It’s so great to meet you and get to know you!

I had it already checked off my →  #SingleBucketList 2018, but I went for it for a second time: I went to another concert! Yay! This time, I didn’t have to travel far, because it was a concert here in Hamburg – I went to see Beach House, one of my favorite bands, which you may know from my musical recap of 2017. And it was an amazing evening, absolutely stunning. And yes: I went there alone again!

But here’s another point of my bucket list: go to a bar alone! I actually did it! At first, it felt weird and I was a bit nervous, but I felt like doing it and just went for it. Done. It was absolutely fine and even though I felt a little bit uncomfortable in the beginning, I quickly got used to it and already did it a few times more. Super easy, since I’m an extrovert and communicative person! I’m pretty proud that I made it happen. :)

Last big event of October was a vernissage which happened to be a huge meet-up of so many people from the plus-size blogosphere! There were people I haven’t seen in about 4 years and it was like a class reunion. So much love and →  so many positive vibes! And a great vernissage!

• Recap | September •

By Posted on 7 5.9K views

Time flies! October’s almost over and I haven’t even written my September recap yet! I’ve really been pretty busy, and here’s what happened last month…

September started with the year’s most fashionable event – the Plus Size Fashion Days! I still have to write an extra post about it, so I hope that you can still be a bit patient with me – I’ll post as many pictures as possible!! And I really hope that – as every year – there’ll be a video as well! :) This year, my mom finally made it to the show – she visited me at home and went to see me on the catwalk and we spent a day in Hamburg together. I’m still happy that I got to have her here with me. ♥

I had two trial days at my now new job, in order to see if I like it and if we’re a match – and I got the job. Right now it’s just a temporary work thingy, but we’ll see how everything works out and maybe make it a part-time job! :) I’m happy to let you know that I’m working at the Kurvenhaus now, so if you’re here and looking for a plus-size shop in Hamburg, come around! :)

September was my sunset month – I wanted to see as many sunsets as possible, sitting at my happy place. Well, didn’t work out as good as planned, but I got to see four stunning sunsets and took a lot of pictures. I also met a few friends and also new people and had a great time! Especially at the Junipalooza (it’s a Gin tasting festival), where I made new friends and found the most amazing Gin ever (Warner Edwards “Rhubarb Gin” – gosh, it’s just perfect!).

And yeah, September 26 was the most important day of the month – my divorce! I wrote about it → in this post and with this, that whole chapter of my life is finally over and I can’t wait to continue my marvellous life! :)

• Recap | August •

By Posted on 4 7.8K 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!

• Recap | July •

By Posted on 8 8K views

Oh July, you were a tough month! It’s so crazy how my life changed completely in only one day in July, on the 8th, when I sat in my car and drove to Hamburg to finally chase my dream to live here and be as independent as possible. I already wrote about → the first two weeks in my new column → #TimeToGrowUp, which I will update as soon and as often as possible, because I think that this is one of the most interesting times of my life and hopefully will show many other people who struggle with the same or similar problems in life, that you can achieve anything if you really want it and decide to fight for it. It’s a battle, it really is, but it’s absolutely worth it, even though it’s pretty hard.

It kind of wasn’t as easy as I expected to say goodbye to my hometown, my friends and even my therapist, because this time, leaving was different. I had changed a lot in this past 14 months and my relationship to my hometown and everything around had grown to be a bit different. I clearly miss my parents a lot, even though I know that leaving them is necessary and the right thing to do. I also miss my friends, especially my best friend who helped me a lot when I had to come back and stay for God knows who long it would take. And also my new friends, the friendships I made in this special changing time of my life. I miss my favorite sushi restaurant, my favorite bar, I miss driving around my hometown and the next city, finding a parking lot much easier. I miss driving to my photo shoots and having my old blogger life back for a few hours. I miss many things. But as much as I miss them, I’m happy that I made this step and left it all behind. Because leaving doesn’t mean to forget. I’m utterly thankful for everything I had in the past year, the safety of my home and my parents, the friendships, the possibility to “blossom” in a known environment. And I will forever remember that time of my life and how much it made me grow already, even though there’s still a lot of work to do. 

So, for the moment, I’ve settled down in my little room, I’ve got everything I need, I got a bed (or something like it, still need an actual one, my back is gonna kill me soon), I got a desk, I got a few clothes (wasn’t prepared for THAT kind of summer, though!), I got my cat and he’s got everything he needs (even though he could clearly use a little more space but I’m glad that he’s a very comfy little guy who sleeps most of the time and is okay with our current situation – he’s not going crazy and he gets a lot of love from me and also my friend!). And I got a job. And it was already super hard – I knew it wouldn’t be easy but I kind of underestimated it a little bit, concerning the physical work, especially in combination with these temperatures (which are even higher in the truck). I’m also looking for a second job, because my work at the food truck will not pay for everything and I will definitely need more money, especially when I want to move out of our shared flat, which is supposed to be in five months.

This month, I didn’t manage to do something from → my bucket list, except for maybe sitting in the park alone – it wasn’t on my bucket list but is definitely a part of “doing things alone”, which is something I still need to do more often. So no official check-off, but something to mention. I didn’t like it, by the way. I felt very lonely in the middle of many people sitting around me with their friends or partners, doing picnics or drinking beer. Since it was very spontaneous, I didn’t bring a book and I guess that it would’ve been a bit nicer if I could’ve read something. Next time, I’ll make sure to have a book with me. Oh, and since I’m already talking about it: only read one book this month – “Wenn’s einfach wär, würd’s jeder machen” by Petra Hülsmann. As all books from her, I loved it. :)
