[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Yesterday was a #Negroni kinda Valentine‘s Day - yay! ♥️ Ich hab‘, wie schon prophezeit, gestern gearbeitet, hab‘ danach die ganze Kitschliebe von mir gespült, was gegessen, Netflix angeschmissen und war dann sehr spät noch auf einen Cocktail im @botanicdistrict - und habe den Drink sogar von einem netten Fremden spendiert bekommen (danke!). Kann man auch mal machen! 🤓

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] #meinkörperistkeinkostüm - auch wenn Frau @barbara.schoeneberger das offensichtlich anders sieht und sich, vermutlich nicht mal gewollt, mit einem Fatsuit auf dem Cover ihres @barbaramagazin und in einem passend dazu geposteten Video lustig macht, in dem sie im gleichen Fatsuit Essen vom Buffet in sich reinschaufelt, lacht und behauptet, das wäre „nichts gegen Dicke“, weil sie „ja selbst eine“ ist. Dicksein kann man sich nicht an- und wieder ausziehen. Seine Haltung gegenüber dicken Menschen kann man allerdings „ausziehen“ und ihnen respektvoll gegenübertreten, egal, was man davon hält. Menschlichkeit, Akzeptanz, Toleranz - das ist wichtiger als ein provokantes Zeitschriftencover auf dem groß „Stimmt was nicht?“ steht. Ja, da stimmt einiges nicht! Und weil so viele es nicht verstehen oder nicht verstehen wollen: #bodypositivity heißt nicht, Dicksein zu feiern, sondern jedem Menschen die Freiheit zu geben, sich selbst schön und gut zu finden, egal in welcher Form sich der Körper befindet! #plussize #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Outfitideen ausprobieren - das hier könnte ich mir ja super für ein Date vorstellen. Zum Beispiel am Valentinstag. Mit mir selbst. 🙆🏼‍♀️ (Muss bestimmt arbeiten und werde dann so viele Pärchen sehen, dass ich das ganze Liebesgetue danach unter der Dusche wegspülen muss und es mir dann gammlig im Bett bequem mache - just saying. Haha!) #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Things I like to wake up to on my weekends: a special delivery from @dexcom 💚 Finally got my new G6 and I couldn’t be happier! We’re talking about: smaller sensor, better sensor (how is that even possible, the G5 was already perfect!), no more finger pricks (YAAAASSSSS!!!), 10 days running time and - as usual - being able to manage it all through my smartphone. 19 years as a diabetic (in May) and all I can say is: THANK YOU, DEXCOM - you’re making this all a lot easier. Plus: I feel like a sexy cyborg. 😏 #dexcom #dexcomG6 #dexcomwarrior #diabetestype1 #type1diabetes

• Lu zieht an. x Süperb | Cold Shoulder •

By Posted on 8 3.9K views

[Werbung | Advertisement – collaboration with Süperb & Secondella]

There’s finally a new outfit for you! And good news: the dress is still available and on SALE! :) I’ve teamed up with the local plus-size brand Süperb and the local luxury second hand shop Secondella for a photo shoot and some new looks and this is the first one I want to show you! Good thing it’s still warm enough so if you feel like getting this amazing cold-shoulder dress, you’ll even be able to wear it just like that and not freeze to death (or let’s say: your shoulder will not be too cold, haha!). ;)

I got the chance to meet the designer, Klara Stenzel, and have a private fitting with her and get to know the brand and I must say that I love the idea behind the brand, which is all about the perfect fit. The clothes are perfectly tailored and will definitely make your curves look their best! This dress is definitely a bestseller and also my personal favorite, even though there are a lot more amazing pieces and you’ll get to know a few more of them, so stay tuned!

I’m also extremely happy that I got Secondella as my second (haha!) partner for the shoot, because I got to choose perfectly matching accessories (and was horribly sad that I had to give them back, because I love them all!) so we could create these cool looks. And of course, I’m also happy that I got to work with one of my favorite photographers, Julia Marie Werner – she’s absolutely amazing and I adore her work, you should have a look at her page! This cute guy next to me is her lovely dog Tschikko and we felt like he’s the perfect photo partner for me – #couplegoals, haha! ;)

• Time to grow up | IV – About getting divorced and unspoken words… •

By Posted on 18 5.9K views

It’s been a bit more than two weeks now, since I finally got divorced after about one year and a half. This was the last step of finishing a chapter of my life. I’ve been thinking a lot about what to write in this blog post. I feel like the divorce is putting a new label on me, even though I’m finally free. Even though I’ve been literally waiting every day for this moment, when my marriage is finally officially over. It felt like a huge weight lift from my heart when I came out of the court after those fifteen minutes, during which I had to see my ex for the last time and officially state that this marriage is over and that I definitely don’t pretend to make it work again. But being a divorced woman kind of labels me, even though it does not define me. This is something I will have to accept and surely will, as soon as possible. I’m glad that it’s over and I want to wear this label as proud as I can, because it all changed me in the most positive way.

The only thing is: I wanted to finally say something and had no chance to do so. You must know that our break-up happened without any personal contact. My ex decided to end our relationship taking the easiest way out: leaving me at my parents, driving back home alone without telling me so, hiding somewhere when I came after him, and then simply writing me a message on WhatsApp that it’s over. It was humiliating. I mean, the person I’ve spent 8 years with, decided to treat me so disrespectfully to end a marriage the most inappropriate way – via text message. And not even with an explanation. Back then, I decided to just take it like this and not say anything. But with the time going by, I wrote a letter to him which I actually wanted to give him on the day of our divorce. A letter which, at first, I was hoping he’d read because I had so much to say about the way he broke up with me. A letter which I almost forgot of after some time because it just became irrelevant – there was no need to say anything anymore. Just one last sentence.

But I didn’t say it. There was no chance to say it. So I’m writing it down.

I’m thankful for the past 18 months. Thankful for the chance to rewrite my life, to change myself, to be who I am now and who I’m going to be in the future. I’m not thankful for how I was „disposed“ but thankful for the decision to do it like this because it made everything easier for me. I’m thankful for the chance to understand that a person like this was never worth it to make my happiness and my life dependent of him, and to understand that I’m the only one to make my life the life I want to live. I don’t need someone else to make me happy.

So here it goes:

Thank you.

• Recap | August •

By Posted on 4 4.5K 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!

I finally found the perfect shoes for this dress, a few months ago in the SALE! So happy about this, because they’re super comfy and elegant. And these kinds of shoes are the best. :) I’ve never really been a very maritime person, never explicitly bought stuff like that – but two years ago, I received this amazing dress from Marina Rinaldi. And since I wanted something to remind me of my comeback to Hamburg, I thought that these sea horse mules are just perfect. Plus, they perfectly match the dress. :)
