[Advertisement | Werbung wegen Verlinkung] The people we meet and who change our lives are what matters. Never forget that. 
It's not about things and possessions, about money and wealth.
It's about love and friendship, about those who make us laugh, those who cry with us, those who we can talk with for hours, those who are there for us when we need them the most, those who we can trust and who can trust on us. ♥️
P.S.: There are many more people that should be with me in a photo in this post - but we keep forgetting to take them. Remind me next time to do a dorky picture with you! 🤓

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Mood nach meinem ersten Arbeitstag: DEAD. 13 Stunden Hardcore auf dem Schlagermove ist dann doch ganz schön heftig für den Anfang, aber ich hab‘s durchgehalten und bin stolz auf mich! Leider kam ich heim und das Internet war tot, also gibt‘s heute keinen chilligen Netflixtag und ich kann so auch leider keinen neuen Blogpost hochladen, aber das hole ich die Tage nach! Bis dahin gibt’s schon mal dieses passende Foto von @sungheeseewald 💕

Oh hello, weekend, is that you? 🤓

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Wenn ihr dieses wundervolle Foto im Kopf abändert, könnt ihr euch vorstellen, wie ich gerade aussehe, während ich hier versuche, mein kleines, aber feines WG-Zimmer etwas wohnlicher zu zaubern (#nomakeup und die coole blaue Folie ist dann eher sowas wie Schraubenzieher und Müll). Da das Foto natürlich viel, viel schöner ist (und ja, die Realität ist sicher auch sympathisch, aber lange nicht so sehenswert!), gibt’s mit diesem ersten Foto heute den Einstieg in eine grandiose neue Strecke, die ich mit der wundervollen @sungheeseewald geshootet hab‘. Den Look gibt’s übrigens auch bald als Outfit auf dem Blog, Internet aber erst ab morgen wieder, also seid ein wenig geduldig mit mir. 💙 Ich schicke euch allen ganz viel Liebe aus Hamburg! 😘😘😘

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Wenn ihr...

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Moin Hamburg, du hast mich wieder! ⚓️ Wie aufregend das alles ist! Erste Nacht in meiner ersten WG, nach meiner ersten richtig langen Autofahrt, mit Spucki im Gepäck, einem richtig coolen (wenn auch erst mal nur kleinen) Job in der Tasche, in meiner allerliebsten Lieblingsstadt der Welt (auch wenn ich eigentlich echt nicht genug davon gesehen habe, um das zu sagen - aber Zuhause ist halt, wo das Herz sich wohlfühlt!). Hoffen wir mal auf einen richtig guten Traum, der dann in Erfüllung geht! Auch wenn ich erst mal auf dem Boden schlafe - gilt das dann trotzdem oder darf ich nochmal, wenn ich ein richtiges Bett habe? ♥️ Größter Dank des Tages geht neben dem Universum (zwei fette Staus, die auf der anderen Autobahnseite waren) an @theblondefreckles und @i.am.taesh - Danke, dass es euch gibt! Und natürlich ein Extradankiii an @jfcreations.photography für dieses traumhafte Foto, das so stummfilmlike zu dieser Aufbruchstimmung bei mir passt! Hamburg, ich bin ready für dich und alles, was kommt! Das wird großartig! ♥️ #hamburgloveistruelove (ist ja übrigens mein persönlicher Hashtag für meine übertrieben große Hamburgliebe und darauf bezogene Posts - wehe, wenn mir den jemand klaut, haha!)

[Advertisement | Werbung wegen Verlinkung] It’s Saturday, so don’t forget: „Get yourself a girl that can do both.“ 💁🏼‍♀️ Übrigens bin ich die meiste Zeit eher links, wobei die Pizzaschachtel nur Attrappe ist. Mein Herz gewinnt man an Gammeltagen mit selbstgemachtem Popcorn (salzig und mit Butter!). ♥️ Aber es wäre ja langweilig, wenn man nicht ab und zu auch mal die Femme Fatale im Korsett rauslassen könnte. „Fehlt“ (nicht wirklich) jetzt nur noch ein Mann mit gutem Geschmack, der dieses Wesen mit mindestens zwei Persönlichkeiten haben will... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Haha!

• #BeachBodyNotSorry | Selfies •

By Posted on 6 3.8K views

Now that’s some major flashback to 2009 – this blog post consists of selfies only (I’ll forever remember myself taking the first pictures for my blog, putting my camera on a stack of books, hitting the self-timer and running through my room for some awkward poses)! I took them last weekend when it was super hot and sunny and I just felt like sharing all the fun and good vibrations I was feeling that day. I originally thought of taking these pictures only for Instagram, but then I decided that even though the photos aren’t of super high quality and I’m not wearing any make-up at all, my hair not properly done and without any concept, just on my parents’ terrace, this is real and deserves to be posted. I wanna be real, I’m not a model, I’m a normal person and even after more than 9 years of blogging, I’m still that same person – just fatter, haha! :)

I believe that #BeachBodyNotSorry is also about this – no perfection, just realness and fun. I mean, who wears a full make-up to the beach? I don’t. Most times, I don’t even wear (water proof) mascara, just sunscreen, that’s all. Of course, my blog is about pretty things and taking editorial-like pictures is a lot of fun and I love the results, but I also love these honest pictures. I love that I was having fun, that I was not caring about how I look. And that’s just the message of this project. Don’t care – enjoy yourself. ♥

• Recap | April •

By Posted on 2 2.8K views

Who thought that → March has already been super crazy, will be surprised that April was even more intense. I’m so glad I’m making such a great progress and that so many amazing things are happening in my life right now and that I’m the one responsible for it – not others. :) I’m pretty sure I was the most dependent person ever and I’m finally coming out of my cocoon of fears and anxiety and now I’m just living. ♥

I did a few crazy but funny things like → petting a fish in our local Botanical Garden (it’s fun, he really seems to like it!), gave a homeless person some money and a donut and spent about half an hour talking to her about life (and received a picture of her dogs which is now in my calendar forever), ate cupcakes alone (nobody judging me, haha!), sold a few clothes at the “Curvy Bloggerflohmarkt” in Fürth (and met some amazing new people!), went on a few → strolls through Hamburg and also here around the lake (finally moving my lazy ass again!) and – probably the craziest but best thing: went alone to Bad Homburg to → watch a concert and got rewarded with the → best day ever in my life

I went to Hamburg for a few days, originally to visit the launch event of the new “Happy Size x Michalsky” collection (such a cool party with lovely people!) and added a few more days for business and some quality time with my friends. This included a very important meeting with my new management (yay, finally found someone to help me!), my → first time in Blankenese (can you believe that I never went there in my three years living in Hamburg? #shameonme) and an important understanding: last time, I realized that I’m ready to go back to Hamburg – this time, I realized that I’m ready to do whatever it takes to get there. What I’m trying to say: I’m ready to change everything in my life. I bawled a lot when I realized that. And this is overwhelmingly great. ♥

Some thoughts about all that: I already said it in my post about my game-changing day – it’s great to live the experience that you don’t need someone else to be happy. It’s kind of brave to make that first step and do something alone. It’s not that easy if you’ve always been someone asking others to join you or if you simply don’t like being alone, but oh, it’s so worth it to just not think to much about it and JUST DO. It’s incredible how free and strong you feel afterwards, how amazing it is to see and understand that being alone is not that bad, that being alone does not mean that you’re lonely. You got the best company by your side: yourself. And if you’re not able to have fun with yourself – nobody will make you sufficiently happy in life, I guess. Of course it’s always cool to have someone around, someone you love or someone you like to spend time with, but it’s so important to understand that you don’t need that someone. And I’m so glad I made this experience a lot this month. ♥

Books I read in April: Tina Brömme – “Wie programmiert man Liebe?”, Helena Steegmann – “Tage wie Chili & Honig”, Petra Hülsmann – “Hummeln im Herzen”, Laura Kneidl – “Verliere mich. Nicht.”, Mark Lowery – “Die ganze nackte Wahrheit”.
I’m writing this down because I’m wondering if you’d like to read a single recap to all of them or if you’d like me to do one post with a collection of short reviews? I’ve still got a lot of books on my crazy stack and I also decided to do a wish list on Amazon, just in case someone wants to surprise me, haha!

It’s finally #BeachBodyNotSorry time again! The sun is shining, the temperatures are hot and all we wanna do is go outside and have some fun! I can’t believe that this is already the fourth season of doing this project and still it feels like we all need it from time to time, cause there’s still the myth of “the perfect beach body” – which is total bullshit and nobody should listen to that. You don’t need a skinny body in order to go to the beach or to the pool or wherever you want to wear your bikini or swimsuit. All you need is yourself, your beachwear and the will to have fun. All those people around – except for your friends and family – don’t matter. Even if they give you that awful look: just ignore it. People will always stare, people will always have an opinion (about others, themselves and a lot of unnecessary stuff), some will force them on you, others will discuss it in private, others won’t even notice you. So why the f*** are you giving so much shit about their thoughts or words? ;)

So here we go, starting a new season of #BeachBodyNotSorry – this time, with a bright canary yellow bikini, showing my belly button, my stretch marks, my cellulite and my cream cheese white skin that could definitely use a little more sunshine (but well, I’m either cream cheese white or lobster red, so I’ll go for the feta and use some sunscreen…). ;)

P.S.: Since we got the same bikini in two different colors, there’s a guest in today’s pictures – my friend → Chrissi is wearing the “Maya” bikini in black, with the balcony top, mine is the tulip cup, both bottoms are the full briefs. ;)

BEST. DAY. EVER. Some may think I’m talking about my wedding day but nope – the best day of my life so far was Saturday. Not only because I managed to check off another point of my → Single Bucket List and got to see → Lukas Batteau, one of the most amazing musicians ever, but also because I did it alone. Yes. A-L-O-N-E. Somehow, that’s even another point of my bucket list because I actually went on a spontaneous adventure. Since nobody wanted to join me, I decided to go on an adventure by myself. So on Saturday, I sat in my car and drove all the way up to Bad Homburg. My first long drive ever alone. My first time going out alone. My first best decision in life ever.  Okay, I’m kind of exaggerating, but yes – the decision of going on this trip alone was definitely a game changer.
