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 really appreciate a great sushi delivery service. And unfortunately, to be honest, this one is not the one for me yet because we had to get the box ourselves. That’s because they’re located in the south and our home is not in their delivery area. Of course, takeaway is also a good option, since I actually prefer eating casually at home, watching my current favorite series and not having to look like I was ready for the red carpet (oh, the drama!), but this means I’m still searching for the sushi delivery service of my dreams.
By now, we’ve tried a lot but usually end up picking up our food ourselves because our favorite restaurants either have no delivery service (Sushi Lô) or it’s just way too expensive (Raw like Sushi) and in the end cheaper to just drive there and get it. Sounds pretty pragmatic but that’s us – living the casual way. ;)

Last year, we tried one of Steffen Henssler’s restaurants here in Hamburg – the sushi restaurant “Ono” (which actually needs a review up here, guess next time I’ll have to take a few pictures!). The second one is “Henssler & Henssler” and nearby the new delivery service “restaurant” (it’s not an actual restaurant, just a reception and the kitchen). I actually wanted to get my food driven up here to my door, but unfortunately they don’t serve all of Hamburg yet. Normally, we wouldn’t drive so far to get our sushi, but I was way too curious, so we made an exception. You can actually pre-order your food for takeaway on their website, but that didn’t work – so we made a call (and had to wait quite a bit – actually, the service is good but veeeery slow, so don’t try to hurry!) and ordered by phone. And this is what we got…

I can’t even say how much I enjoyed going out for dinner in Rio. :) Those two luxurious dinners we had (find my post about our dinner at the “Mee” → here), were definitely two highlights of our vacation. Not just because it’s luxury, the food was simply delicious! And this is coming from someone who’s normally not very interested in Italian food (gosh, many people will think I’m crazy, right?). I don’t really care about pizza and pasta, but this time I wanted to give it a try, especially because the FASANO is known for its great food, including sea food. But if there’s something that I’m even less interested in, then it’s sea food (well, except for oysters, haha!) and cooked fish (but please give me anything raw – one day I’ll become a sushi myself!). So I chose a few classics from the Italian cuisine and I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, this was one of the best dinners I ever had and I can definitely recommend booking a table and enjoying dinner at the “FASANO al mare” – maybe even the same dishes I had. ;)

Back in Germany, it’s not only time to unpack the suitcases (check!) but also to remember the good times and incredible experiences we had in Rio de Janeiro. The city doesn’t only offer beautiful places but also great food (don’t miss the chance to eat your way through ALL of the fruits, and of course, if you love meat, you have to try a “churrasco”, for example at “Carretão” in Ipanema).
Since I was little, one of my biggest dreams has been to visit the hotel “Copacabana Palace”, THE legend of Rio and the place where all the rich and famous stay. The building is on Avenida Atlântica, the street running along the beach of Copacabana, and is definitely a gem – one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen. Of course, I was very curious to see how it looked inside! So as we were on vacation, plus the exchange rate from euros to reais was pretty nice, we took our chance and booked a table at their Asian (actually Pan-Asian) restaurant “Mee”. There’s also a great Italian restaurant at the Copacabana Palace, the “Cipriani”, but as we already had dinner at the FASANO in Ipanema the night before (blog post coming!), we went for this exotic dinner. And we were pretty lucky that night – not only was the dinner extremely good, but we also had some famous company: thanks to “Rock in Rio”, there were some celebrities dining next to us – Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, Tommy Lee, Guns N’ Roses,… (we probably just didn’t recognize the rest of them!). Pretty exciting, huh? :)

If you’re a sushi lover like me, you’d better not skip a visit to the → east Hamburg for some uber-yummy sushi.
A few weeks ago I was invited to a “Sushi Tasting” and believe me: this was one of the most delicious evenings ever!

I really enjoy sushi and already visited a bunch of restaurants, from cheap to expensive, here in Hamburg, in my hometown, all over Germany and even in Brazil (by the way: that’s where I grew to love it!). One day I’ll probably transform into a tiny little nigiri and eat myself. ;) Fact is: wherever I go, I like to try sushi when I’m hungry.
That’s why the Sushi Tasting was extremely interesting for me and, of course, my expectations were high, as I knew that this was going to be a great experience. The east is well-known for its gastronomy and a place to be in Hamburg. The restaurant offers not only sushi, but to be honest: after this great menu, I don’t even want to eat something else there. ;) But I’ll definitely give it a try (there are some nice dishes on their menu)!

When you enter the hotel, it’s more like entering a stylish restaurant, with a big lobby, Yakshi’s Bar and two lounges. It’s a pleasure to walk in, walk along the bar (or even stay for a little cocktail – I can highly recommend the non-alcoholic “Green Manga”!) and go downstairs to take your seat in the restaurant. The location is extremely beautiful, based on an old iron foundry, the façade of which was maintained and which gives it a very special touch, cozy and still luxurious. It reminds me of a wine cellar, which is a perfect association, as their wine card includes a wide selection of wines and champagne. This evening, I stuck to one of their east exclusives, which was the perfect choice for my sushi.
