To go self-hosted or not to go self-hosted – this question that had been in the back of my mind since the beginning of 2016. As much as I liked my blog I was craving a change but I couldn’t quite commit to leaving the comfort of blogger behind. And the prospect of self-hosting a blog seemed pretty daunting, it sounded like a challenge that could never be overcome by someone who doesn’t have a clue about HTML and coding. But my mind wouldn’t shake off the thought and now I’m sitting here, nearly six months later, and I can… View Post

I definitely consider myself a bookworm. Since I was young I have been dreaming about my future house and about turning one of its rooms into a library. And if I don’t have a spare room I’ll have to turn my bedroom into a library with a bed in one corner. Just imagine the scenario. I don’t think you would ever see me outside again. No, I would spend every single minute reading while sipping on a cup of vanilla tea or a hot cocoa. With reading I often stick to the same genre of books – I have to… View Post

We all blog for different reasons and mine have slowly changed over time. I went from sharing my love for beauty to sharing my passion for travelling and self-expression through fashion. But basically I talk about whatever is on my mind and whatever I’d like to share with the world. And despite blogging about different topics nowadays my reason for blogging is still the same at its core. I love to inspire others and be inspired by other bloggers, whether that’s in terms of travelling, lifestyle, beauty or fashion. And it isn’t only about giving inspiration to others, it is… View Post

Who doesn’t like a road trip, especially if it includes swimming at the feet of a waterfall? If you have read my first post about Croatia, you know that my family and me spent nearly all of our time relaxing at the beach taking a break from our daily life. But I’m saying nearly for a very good reason – amongst all the relaxed hours in Baska Voda we also decided to go on a day trip to Krka National Park, one of the two popular national parks of the country. So we got up early, packed the (rental) car… View Post

I hope you have all had an amazing summer so far. Mine has been eventful, to say the least and so I thought it was time for a good old life update post. Where should I start? (not just a rhetorical question, I’m genuinely thinking about where I should start.) If you have been following my blog for a while you know that I went abroad right after my birthday, to the lovely country of France. There I took part in a concept called ‘workaway’ which is basically the same as work & travel, only that you don’t earn money but… View Post

Remember the days when my blog was all about beauty? When I would talk about my favourites every month and describe my foundation routine? A lot has changed since then and although I don’t restrict my blog to certain topics a beauty posts is rarely seen on my blog these days. Today’s post is all about beauty, though not in the typical sense. This post is dedicated to a topic that is very important to me and that I’d like to be more openly discussed in the world of beauty: cruelty-free beauty.  As you might remember I used to be… View Post

Is there anything better than relaxing at the beach and reading a good book? I have already answered that question in my latest post about my holiday in Croatia, for me there isn’t. Whenever I go on holiday I spent hours at my local bookstore looking for the best holiday reads and I often search websites such as goodread to find new inspiration. For this year’s holiday I settled on three books that were all quite different from one another. One was the sequel of the highly discussed novel ‘Me Before You’, another one a novel written by Nicholas Sparks… View Post

 Exactly two weeks ago we got up very early to catch our flight to Split in Croatia and even though I’m certainly not a morning person Croatia’s beauty made the short night and endless queue at the check-in fully worth it. When we arrived at the airport we were directly picked up and brought to our hotel that was situated in the lovely village of Baska Voda. I had never heard of Baska Voda before booking our hotel and despite seeing some pictures on the internet I didn’t really know what to expect. When we arrived at our destination I… View Post

After talking about my plans for this summer in my last post I decided to turn words into action. So instead of spending the week at home I listened to my own preaching to fill this summer with exciting trips and exploring and thus bought a return ticket to Hamburg to visit a really good friend of mine. I was incredibly excited at the prospect of seeing her again as we hadn’t met up in a while and as she had moved flats in the meantime. But the best thing about true friendship is that neither distance nor time matter… View Post

  Summer has finally started. In theory at least. The weather can’t seem to make up its mind this year and it looks like it’s decided to just skip the hot season and head straight to autumn. But it’s only the beginning of July and so there is still hope for those of you who love high temperatures and who can’t wait to dig their summer clothes out.I’m typing this the sun has suddenly reappeared as if to underline my last statement. Anyway, I am really excited for this season as I got many things planned and as I can’t wait… View Post
