[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Just a gentle reminder that you’re great - whether you’re a @victoriassecret model or not, whether you’re skinny or fat, whether you’re short or tall,... no matter your gender, your skin color, your sexual orientation. You’re great. And never let someone else tell you you’re not. Don’t forget to love yourself first, because with self love, loving others is easier. ♥️ | 📷 @sungheeseewald

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Das Schöne daran, wenn man in einem Klamottenladen arbeitet? Die riesigen Spiegel für Selfies! 😜 Haha, nein, tatsächlich gibt es da vieles, was wirklich Spaß macht: all die tolle Kleidung (die wiederum kontraproduktiv für den Geldbeutel ist, haha!), die netten Kunden, die lieben Kollegen und natürlich auch die Möglichkeit, styletechnisch anziehen zu können, was zu einem passt. ✌🏻 Und ja, auch die riesigen Spiegel sind natürlich praktisch, damit ich euch meine Work-Looks zeigen kann! Hoffe, ihr habt Spaß damit, auch wenn ihr sonst eine andere Qualität von mir gewohnt seid. Für Instagram finde ich das aber ja ehrlich gesagt vollkommen in Ordnung. 😊 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Heute mal selbst hinter der Bar gestanden und was gemixt: eine kleine Abwandlung mit Quinquina statt Dubonnet vom 1920er „Opera“ - mit @isleofharrisdistillers Gin, @luxardoofficial Marschino, @capmattei Quinquina Rosso und @thebittertruthcompany Orange Bitters. Bin ein bisschen in love. 😍 Und wie schön ist bitte das Produktdesign von Flasche und Martiniglas vom wunderbaren Isle of Harris Gin? ♥️

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] When women support each other, amazing things happen! 👭 Das Schöne an solchen Events: all die positiven Vibes, die da in der Luft liegen, die Liebe, die wir uns gegenseitig entgegenbringen! Ich wünsche mir eine Welt, in der wir Frauen uns nicht als Konkurrenz sehen, sondern verstehen, dass wir nur gemeinsam stark sind. Neid und Missgunst bringen uns nicht weiter. Genauso wenig wie all der Online-Hass, der leider vor allem von Frauen immer wieder groß angeschürt wird. Das klingt immer so nach Weichspüler-Miss-Universe-Contest, aber können wir uns nicht einfach alle mal ein bisschen mehr akzeptieren, tolerieren und lieb haben? Aufhören mit dem Vergleichen und hintenrum lästern? Wir stecken alle im gleichen Boot, wir sind Frauen (auch die, die nicht als solche geboren wurden!) und wir sollten füreinander da sein und aufeinander stolz sein. In diesem Sinne: ein großes Wowza an die Mädels vom #mysizerevolution Shoot, aber auch an jede einzelne von euch da draußen! ♥️ | 📷 @oliverreetz

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! ;)

There are posts that aren’t written as easily as you’d think. Today’s post is one of them. I’m still not ready to tell you exactly what happened cause it’s a long and disturbing story and I will need some time to find the right words for it. I just feel like right now, I’m finally ready to write down that I’m single again.

It’s hard to read these words after such a long time in a relationship, after a marriage that didn’t even last three years, but I’m already at a point where I survived the hardest part and feel confident enough to share these news with you.

Being single again at 27 comes definitely unexpected. It’s weird and it’s not fun and I wish I wasn’t, because I’m clearly a person who doesn’t like to spend her time alone. Yet, I’m learning to be alone and I’m also learning how to be my own person of trust. As you can imagine, the separation led me to start the therapy of which I already told you in June. This was an important step of my evolution. As I told you, I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety for a long time and something as horrible as what happened now definitely put me in the worst state one can be.

Even though I’m not completely ready yet to take you with me on this story of my new journey, my new start, I feel like I’m on a good way and the path is leading me to a better version of myself. Even though I hate being alone (which I’m actually not, cause I’m living with my parents right now and I feel safe and loved), I’m pretty sure that all this is a good thing for me – it’s giving me a new chance to get to know myself and evolve from depression and too much fear to a strong and independent woman – and I’m already making a lot of new steps.

• Private XI | Interaction •

Not much time and I will have been blogging for 8 years (10 to be precise, but this blog has existed for “only” almost 8 of them). Back then in 2009, blogging was different. After I started blogging about my daily life on a personal blog (and believe me, this wasn’t as interesting as it might sound because it was only about school and music and pretty sad all the time), I found out that there’s more – fashion blogs, beauty blogs, well, blogs about a special topic. One day, I was sick in bed (uh, tell me something new!) and decided that I wanted to do a fashion blog – but not a typical fashion blog. One that’s only about my outfits. And that’s how “Lu zieht an.” started.

At first, it was kind of weird. My few friends (half of them were men) were never that interested in fashion. They were pretty basic when it came to outfits, while I was rather “different”, extrovert and extravagant (hasn’t changed, right?). Of course, they left comments because they were my friends but – let’s be honest! – they surely weren’t really interested. I began to follow other fashion blogs – and beauty blogs. Commenting was the most important thing, interaction with other bloggers, with your readers – discussions and simply nice words. When you left a comment on someone else’s blog, people would come and check out who you are. And leave a comment. That’s how you grew your community, your followership – your reach. And it was worth a million because active followers are what keeps a blog alive, what makes a blog a blog and therefore something different than a magazine. Something personal yet public – a place to be for everyone.

• Recap & Thoughts | #BeachBodyNotSorry 2016 •

By Posted on 6 3.6K views

It’s already pretty cold outside but I still want to quickly talk about this year’s #BeachBodyNotSorry project and have a look at the beach outfits I wore this season. I kind of felt that plus-sized beach bodies were more present than ever in 2016. Of course there were a few very important moments like → Ashley Graham on the cover of “Sports Illustrated” or the most recent → “All Woman Project” launched by Clementine Desseaux and Charli Howard (featuring some amazing beach wear by Phylyda – I hope I can work with this brand next year!). But we also had bloggers showing their beach bodies everywhere and it makes me proud to say that I’m a part of this – again.

Unfortunately, this time I couldn’t show as many looks as → last year – on the one hand, there simply was a lack of new beach wear (I just didn’t want to wear everything again, but neither did I want to spend loads of money on new stuff – cause our summer in Germany isn’t long enough to hoard uncountable masses of bikinis and swimsuits), on the other hand, I missed almost 90% of our summer because I was very sick. Even beginning to shoot before the start of the official beach season wasn’t that helpful, so I only managed to do five looks (plus two “covered” beach styles, meaning: one with a kaftan and another one wearing transparent stuff over my bikini).

So let’s recap my #BeachBodyNotSorry looks of 2016…
