It’s ridiculous to say it because we’re having 27°C right now but I really, really want a coat exactly like tis one for autumn/winter. If you know where I can get one, let me know!

I wouldn’t wear this myself, I guess. But she looks pretty awesome, doesn’t she? Eyes, lips, hair – everything just fits perfectly.

Outline-less flowers on the chest. This is beautiful.

I need to get in shape for Freeletics again. I did my first Dione after almost a month today and just died of exhaustion during the workout. But I felt great afterwards!

LUSH haul

1

I’ve never been to LUSH before even though I walk past it every single day. The smell coming out of the shop kind of scared me off because it’s quite intense. If you’ve ever walked past a LUSH shop you probable know what I mean. But considering the fact that I support pretty much everything they stand for I decided to give it a try. I was desperately looking for a vegan shampoo, conditioner and body lotion, so why not LUSH? A huge bonus was that they tag their vegan products which makes this whole thing a LOT quicker. I went for the BIG sea salt shampoo, the VEGANESE conditioner and the VANILLA DEE-LITE hand and body lotion. And because you can never have enough sea salt sprays I had to take that one, too.
I can’t tell if I like the things or not because I have to try them for some time before I can set my mind on an opinion. But I’ll definitely let you guys

Ich war ja noch nie bei LUSH. Und das, obwohl ich jeden Tag dran vorbei lauf. Ich find den Geruch so krass, der da rauskommt. Das hat mich immer abgeschreckt. Wer schon mal an einem LUSH Laden vorbei gelaufen ist weiß vermutlich ganz genau, was ich meine. Aber in Anbetracht der Tatsache, dass ich alles unterstütze, wofür sie stehen, hatte ich beschlossen, mal was davon auszuprobieren. Ich war sowieso auf der Suche nach veganem Shampoo, Conditioner und Bodylotion, warum also nicht mal LUSH ausprobieren. Die kennzeichnen ihre veganen Artikel, was einfach der Hammer ist, weil es die ganze Sache wesentlich schneller und einfacher macht. Ein dicker Bonus also. Mitgenommen habe ich das BIG Shampoo, den VEGANESE conditioner und die VANILLE DEE-LITE Bodylotion. Und weil man ja bekanntlich nie genug Sea Salt Sprays haben kann, musste das leider auch noch mir.
Wie ich die Sachen finde kann ich erst nach einer gewissen Zeit sagen. Ich brauch immer ein bisschen bis ich mich bei so was festlegen kann, aber ich sag euch natürlich Bescheid!

June through my iPhone

June was crazy. Do you know the feeling when a lot of free time is over and you were always really, really busy but looking back you can’t thing of anything you’ve done? That’s how I feel. 2014 is halfway over. Can you believe it? Enjoy my little Instagram recap.

1
An all black ootd. I’ve fallen back in love with wearing all black. Also those true fruits smoothies are SO delicious!

2
The night the boy and I made a “desert dinner” which was pretty good! Amazing atmosphere.

3
Another ootd.

4
Festungsflimmern! Open Air cinema in Würzburg on the fortress I showed you in this post. It was pretty cold but the film (“HER”) was so amazing, the location was perfect and just everything about that night was wonderful.

5
The most beautiful curtilage I’ve ever seen? This is actually a restaurant in Würzburg, the oldest one of them all if I’m not mistaking. It reminds me of Romeo&Juliet.

6
Vegan Birkenstocks! Oh, I am SO glad they exist! I’m still hoping for a vegan version of the Arizona.

I hope you liked the pictures? There’s more on my Instagram account. X

Quickie

1

Not much to say today. This is me enjoying my after work coffee with almond milk (the BEST) before heading to a Biergarten (is there an English equivalent? Beer garden?) to watch GER vs. USA (WHICH WE WON! YAY!).

I’d definitely recommend reading Times They Changin’ latest post. Read it and then think about it. Just do it.

Hab nichts zu sagen heute. Feierabendkaffee mit Mandelmich, das beste Getränk der Welt und dann ab in den Biergarten zum Fußball gucken. Wir haben zwar gewonnen, aber Weltmeister wird man so nicht. Dennoch: Weiter so, Jungs!
Lest übrigens mal den neuen Post von Times They Changin’. Lesen, drüber nachdenken. Einfach machen.

Weekly Inspiration #9

This Weekly Inspiration is a bit of a girl crush one. I just recently found out about Nanda Schwarz, a German blogger with the perfect hippie style. I just want her hair, her nose piercing, her many, many ankle bracelets (is that how you call these things?), just everything. Enjoy!

Just look at that. It’s perfect.

Eyes, lips, hair, ear piercings and earrings.

I love leg tattoos! This one’s style is amazing. Look at those details!

Yoga again. I’ve been quite sick for three weeks now and can’t do any sports because breathing is a difficult thing for me right now. My body aches for movement and I already have a bad consciens for eating so much.

This is a line from a nice song of a German band called Kraftklub. In English it’s “When you kiss me the world sucks a little less.” I love the simplicity of this and I tell my boyfriend this every day.

The boy and I rewatched Star Wars Episode V-VI (again). I love this picture of Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. How excited are we about the upcoming Episode VII?!

Have you checked my Tumblr yet? I reblog a lot of pretty things I love and I feel like it reflects my personality quite well. If you haven’t already, do have a look! X

Fortress Friends

1

This week two friends from home came to visit us in Würzburg which was simply amazing. We ate (a lot!), strolled around the city and went up all the stairs to Marienberg Fortress. The view from up there is incredible. It’s easily one of my favourite places in Würzburg. You can imagine how it was back when dukes and duchesses lived up there. We were lucky with the weather: shorts and t-shirt without freezing!
The first picture above is actually one of my most loved ones with the boy. Can’t tell you what it is that makes this one so special. It just reflects us pretty well, I’d say.
Thank you, guys, for visiting and making the last days so beautiful!

Diese Woche kamen Freunde aus dem Westerwald zu Besuch und es war einfach wundervoll. Viel gegessen, durch die Stadt gewandert und tatsächlich die gefühlt eine Million Stufen hoch zur Festung Marienberg marschiert! Die Aussicht von da oben ist der absolute Wahnsinn. Auf jeden Fall einer meiner Lieblingsplätze in Würzburg. Man kann sich einfach total vorstellen wie es früher war als noch Grafen und Gräfinnen da gewohnt haben. Außerdem hatten wir riesiges Glück mit dem Wetter: Shorts und T-Shirt ohne zu erfrieren, und zwar problemlos!
Ich liebe dieses Foto vom Freund und mir. Definitiv eins meiner all time favourites. Keine Ahnung, warum. Es beschreibt uns irgendwie total gut.
Danke, dass ihr da ward, ihr Lieben, und die letzten Tage so schön gemacht haben!

Busy Times

1

Hello everyone! I know, it’s been forever. My life has been ridiculously busy the last few weeks and there was just no time to take photos or anything. I had my head filled with other stuff that required a lot of my attention.
I hope you guys forgive me!

My boy shot these ones today in a free minute when it was nice and sunny. The blouse is ZARA and I love the slightly transparent back because it displays my tattoos quite nicely. I love summer because I can show everyone my inked skin which is something I really like because I love and am proud of every single one.
I have plenty ideas for new ones but it’s a bit difficult to time with my work as you probably can imagine.

May through my iPhone

May went by quickly again, didn’t it? Enjoy my month through the lens of my iPhone.

1
My first order from LikeLife! A Cologne based fashion label with the most amazing shirts. And they only use vegan colours which is a huge plus. Check them out!

2
The Hemp Hand Protector by The Body Shop. This seriously is the best hand creme in the universe. I have a lot of trouble with dry hands because I have to disinfect them so much at work. This is pretty much the only product that had helped so far.

3
A selfie.

Found an accidental heart on Main river the other day. I love little wonders like this. They always brighten my day.

5
I LOVE tote bags. This one by peta2 is my current favourite. I like wearing my beliefs.

6
Enjoying soft summer nights on our balcony.

7
On Würzburger Stadtstrand (translate in English: city beach) the other day. A refreshing drink on a hot day. It felt like summer. Wonderful.

8
Couldn’t resist and got a Casio. I love this watch. It’s slim, stylish and just amazing.

9
Wearing my favourite new dress by VILA. I first saw that iPhone case by Alphabet Bags on Hello October (my absolute favourite blog) and just HAD to get it myself.

Vegan pasta I made just a few days ago. I improvised with the veggies I had and it turned out pretty tasty! I hope I can remember how I did it.
