[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Irgendwie wird mein Look immer “sportlicher”. Jeans + T-Shirt geht halt immer. Heute war mal wieder ein guter Tag - das sind die Tage, an denen man auf Menschen trifft, momentan immer. Auch wenn Abstand und/oder Masken dazwischen sind. ♥️ #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

Ich bin ja ein absolutes Papakind. Und trotzdem gibt’s von uns zusammen irgendwie kein schönes Foto. Dafür diesen legendären Faceswap. Ich finde, mein Papa geht super als Asterix durch. 😂 Auf jeden Fall: schönen Vatertag, lieber Papi! Ohne dich wäre ich aufgeschmissen. Einen besseren Helden hätte man mir nicht geben können! ♥️

#mybodyisnotyourquarantinenightmare - ich hab‘ mir viele Gedanken dazu gemacht, ob und wie ich so ein Foto posten möchte. Schließlich bin ich die Erste, die immer wieder sagt, dass dieses ganze Nacktheitsding, vor allem bei den Plus-Size-Bloggern, irgendwie Überhand genommen hat und in den sozialen Medien gefühlt nur noch das klassische „Sex sells“-Prinzip für Likes und Klicks und Reaktionen sorgt (dass die meisten davon von ekligen Typen Ü40 kommen, lassen wir dabei mal bei Seite). Trotzdem sage ich auch immer wieder, dass es wichtig ist, auch stinknormale, unbearbeitete Körper in den Medien zu sehen. Nicht zuletzt, damit sich das Bild irgendwann auf Dauer in unseren Köpfen festsetzt, dass auch dicke Körper etwas Normales sind - nicht ein Grund, sich zu schämen. Es geht dabei nicht darum, ein „ungesundes Körperbild“ zu glorifizieren oder zu sagen, dass Dicksein toll ist. Und immer wieder frage ich mich, was die Kritiker denn glauben - dass jemand kommt und sagt „Hey, so fett will ich jetzt auch werden!“? Nein, dafür sorgt unser Schönheitsideal nämlich an jeder Ecke. Und so ist auch jetzt gerade, in Zeiten von Corona, Quarantäne und Selbstisolation - so scheint es zumindest - das größte Problem der Leute, dass sie ja zunehmen und fett werden könnten. Als gäbe es auf der Welt grad kein größeres Problem als Gewicht zuzulegen. Es werden unzählige Memes gepostet, Vorher-Nachher-Corona-Albträume, Witze darüber, wie man sich jetzt vollfuttert,... Ja, dicker werden ist kein Ziel, nichts, wonach man strebt. Aber wenn ich Bilder sehe, auf denen dünne Menschen neben dicken Menschen zu sehen sind und sich darüber lustig gemacht wird, dann ist das weder unterhaltsam, noch irgendwie cool. Es ist verletzend. Für all diejenigen, die auf der „so werde ich nach Corona aussehen“-Seite abgebildet sind. Mein Körper ist kein Quarantäne-Albtraum. Genauso wenig wie er ein Ideal ist. Mein Körper ist mein Körper und ich bin dankbar für ihn. Er mag seine gesellschaftlichen Defizite haben und ab und zu nervt mich der Anblick auch, so wie jeden von uns, aber ich bin dankbar, einen gesunden und funktionierenden Körper zu haben, der mich durch diese Zeit trägt und (mich) nicht aufgibt. ♥️

• Recap | November •

By Posted on 4 5.8K views

It’s been very quiet. The last two months were very intense and I was almost giving up. I will write about this in my next #TTGU post, which I’ll be writing in the next days and hopefully publish soon. But first, let’s recap November (and then, there’s still a very exciting December recap ahead – plus my recap of 2018, which is probably gonna be very emotional). 

November started with work and my first work day on Sunday – it was fine for me, since I really like my job and it’s fun to be around fashion and people. I’ll continue my job at the Kurvenhaus Hamburg next year, but will add another one, hopefully starting in the middle of January. We also had our Christmas party in November and I’m happy to say that I’m part of such a lovely team and that I feel that I get along well with everybody. 

November also started with a doctor’s appointment I was very scared of. I had to see my gynecologist for a follow-up check because they had found some cell changes in April. I was very nervous but luckily, everything seems to be back to normal again. She did not confirm it, but maybe quitting the pill has kind of caused this little incident. Who knows. Anyways, I’m thankful that everything’s okay. And I’m just writing this, because I want to spread awareness: visiting your gyn is important. As well as checking your body, especially your breasts, regularly.

I was part of the jury for Vollkommen. Braut.’s model casting for their new bridal dress line, together with my dearest → Silvana Denker (who shot the pictures). We were even filmed, but unfortunately, the video isn’t available online anymore. But you can find all pictures → here! :)

And, of course, there’s the happiest day of November: the 26th, official day of my divorce and funnily, the day I got a new tattoo (actually two, but I’ve only shown one of them yet). I’m glad that everything’s finally over and I get the chance to move on without any worries. And with an amazing new tattoo by → rei.ink – she was the best choice ever for this little piece of art on my arm.

At the “Deutscher Bloggerpreis 2018” • Best sushi I’ve ever had at Matsumi • Having a Skin Gin G&T at the “Made in Hamburg” fair • New Tattoo(s)! • My favorite cocktail at the FONTENAY bar after a wonderful Christmas dinner with Ernsting’s family

Yay, there’s finally my second look from my photo shoot with Süperb and Secondella! Now, it’s actually a little bit too cold for this outfit, but it’s nothing a pair of tights and a cozy warm jacket can’t fix! ;) I must say that this t-shirt is one of the best-fitting shirts I’ve ever worn. Klara, the designer of Süperb, added bust darts to this shirt for a perfect fit – plus, it’s a fitted cut and in the end, this is simply an amazing t-shirt! And I’m pretty sure that you’re all gonna love this electric blue tulle skirt (which has pockets, so you just have to love it!). We went for a more sporty and casual look and added fun sneakers with neon yellow furry details and found the perfect spot for our happy photo shoot. I hope you all like it! Have a great weekend, everyone!

• Recap | October •

By Posted on 2 5.3K 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 6.2K 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! :)
