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. ♥

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. ;)

As usual, I want to do a short recap after my #BeachBodyNotSorry project and share a few more thoughts about the looks with you. I know that this year’s project wasn’t that “beachy” at all because of the photos I had to take in our garden. I only managed to do one shoot in Hamburg at the Elbe and even this one isn’t at the beach. I’m a little sad about this because, of course, beachwear looks best at the beach. But sometimes, we have to change our plans. And wearing your bikini and swimsuit at home is no shame at all. :) At least I got the chance to spend some time in the sun during a super hot and beautiful summer here in the south of Germany.

As every year, it’s extremely important to me to show you that beach wear is for everyone. You don’t need to hide and you don’t need to wrap yourself in tons of fabric so nobody will notice that you’re not skinny. I’m pretty sure that you all want to have fun in the summer and that nobody wants to sweat in long-sleeved clothes instead of jumping into the water. I also want you to see a body that’s not photoshopped or somehow “perfect”. I have some major cellulite around my thighs, I have stretch marks around my belly and hips (which you can’t see this time because of the high-waisted pants or swimsuits), I have a hanging belly, I’m super white,… The world is still missing enough unretouched photos and “natural” bodies.

P.S.: You can find two exclusive pictures (one of a not shown look on the blog) on Instagram, so don’t forget to check my account – @luziehtan! ;)

Here it is, the last look of this year’s → #BeachBodyNotSorry project. I’m very sorry and actually pretty sad that I couldn’t provide more different photos and styles but due to my current situation (no beaches, no actual photographer, plus: I was too sad during the summer months) this is all I could do. Now, it’s getting too cold for beach looks but as we all know: next year there’ll be a new summer season and I’m looking forward to new chances and new styles for my most favorite project of the year. :)

Since it’s already pretty cold and also a little bit weird to pose just in a swimsuit on the middle of the street in a small village, I decided to create a pool party look by adding a long kimono and high heels.

This swimsuit might be one of my absolute favorites. I love the print which is kind of watercolor-like. I also love the cut and the fit – even though this is a piece from H&M’s regular collection and “only” EU size 42. Sometimes, it’s worth a try to go for smaller sizes, especially because swimwear is very elastic. Of course, it shouldn’t cut into your skin but I’ve learned that swimwear does not always have to be chosen in your regular size. So that’s just a tip from my side. ;)
