In the beginning of April, I went to a very special photo shoot with Phylyda. I met six other inspiring women and we took part of an amazing diversity project, all wearing Phylyda.

I don’t even know what to tell you since I’ve already been writing a lot about diversity, empowering others and that feeling of self-love and the love and acceptance we all should feel for the people around us. That’s why I want to leave you with these beautiful pictures that hopefully show how amazing it is to finally embrace yourself, embrace diversity and embrace others.

I hope you all love this project as much as I do and I want to invite you to read some articles about the shoot and some of my old Private posts that relate to the topic:

I must admit – after correcting the colors and sharpness of today’s pictures, somehow, the legs ended up with some weird texture. Don’t worry, though – I didn’t retouch anything and you can obviously see my cellulite! With that in mind, I kindly welcome you to this year’s #BeachBodyNotSorry project! :)

I already got to know about Phylyda last year but there was no time for a collab left. I’m so happy that we managed to do something for this season and this also means that by now, I already own three bikinis from Phylyda, since I escalated at the pop-up store back in April. No “oops” from me because these pieces are worth every cent and their “mix & match” ability is level 100 – every combination looks just amazing! Lydia, the founder of Phylyda, asked me to shoot this combo and I happily said yes, crossed a fence, climbed down many rocks and positioned myself at the Elbe at low tide for a photo shoot that made many people stare (of course, it was so super sunny on that Sunday, so everybody was out for a walk…). And I loved it! Best way to start a new season of my favorite project. Can’t wait to do more of these shoots and I hope you’re also super excited to see more of them!
