29 things I’ve learnt in 29 years.

Today is my 29th birthday which I consider to be the perfect day to reflect on a few important things I’ve learnt in all of these years that have passed. So let me share with you 29 things I’ve learnt: Now is the only thing that’s real. The past has gone, the future is uncertain, so be present in this very moment. You will feel stress and anxiety fade away. When one door closes, another will open – always. So don’t be scared, take risks, life will always go on. There is a very close connection between your body and…

Halloween Breakfast – Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl

Okay, to be honest.. I don’t even like Halloween. However, I truly believe pumpkin smoothie bowls make a perfect Halloween breakfast. I mean, what else would you wanna eat on Halloween other than pumpkin? See? And since I’ve been obsessed with my pumpkin smoothie bowls this whole month of October, I thought I might as well share how I make it with you. I don’t measure out my ingredients when making a smoothie as I believe it’s always best to experiment a little to get the perfect taste and texture. Anyway, here’s how to make it: You will need: 2-3…

Autumnly Soy Yoghurt

If you love the taste of cold and warm food mixed together, this recipe is perfect for you. <3 This yoghurt bowl can be a whole breakfast or just a snack or dessert.

Liebster Award – Questions & Answers

I got nominated by Sandra from Lana Lifestyle to join in the “Liebster Award”. <3 It’s a German blogger game but I decided to give the answers in German and English as a lot of my readers don’t understand German. I’ll start with English, you can find German below. What makes you happy? There are so many things but I think it’s mainly the small non-materialistic things: a good book, beautiful music, nature, running, surfing, animals, doing something for others, feeling loved, delicious food.. If there was one thing you could change about yourself, what would it be? I would…

Oil Pulling – how & why?

Oil pulling has become a big trend recently and I’ve been doing it for about a year now as well – it’s actually one of the best routines I’ve added to my daily life. So, what is this oil pulling and why is it beneficial for your health? How to do it: Do it first thing in the morning, before drinking, eating or brushing your teeth. Take about 1tbsp of oil into your mouth. You can use any organic cold-pressed oil but it’s said that coconut oil is the most effective and I haven’t tried any other oils. Tbh the…

The worst is yet to.. probably not come.

85% of what we worry about never happens.. Five hundred years ago, Michel de Montaigne said: “My life has been filled with terrible misfortune; most of which never happened.” I’ve just read an article sharing this percentage information found out in studies. And I mean, yes.. I can totally imagine this to be true. How often do we imagine worst-case scenarios in our head that in the end never occur? At least I do, that’s one of my main struggles and the reason I worry so much all the time. I worry about things that will probably never happen! Anyway,…

Pictures or it didn’t happen? Let’s talk smartphones & social media.

“The best moments of my life don’t make it to social media.” I’ve seen this quote a lot and it’s so true. The best laughs and most memorable situations I’ve experienced don’t make it to my Instagram account. I’ve just finished this book called “Digital Depression” and although it’s already clear to me how obsessed we as a society are about with smartphones and social media, I really enjoyed reading it. It’s so well written, so up-to-date, so on point. You see people starring on their screens all day long – while shopping, partying, having conversations, being at work, going for…

Pancake Sunday

It’s Sunday! <3 Which means it’s time for pancakes, right? People always ask me for a recipe for my pancakes but honestly I don’t really use any recipe and just put together the ingredients by feeling. Anyway, I decided to measure the ingredients for you today and to write down a little recipe. Probably one of the easiest pancake recipes ever.. For one pancake stack you will need: 1 ripe Banana 100g of your favourite flour 150ml of your favourite plant milk 1tbsp corn starch 1tsp baking powder Mash the banana with a fork and put it in a bowl.…

I’m a person that loves winter (not driving through snow with my car though..). There are a lot of things to love about christmas time and winter time in general. However, not gonna lie – I often struggle with keeping a positive mindset during this cold and dark season as well. So let me share with you a few things that help me to cheer up and that make…

Identity Crisis.. at the end of my 20s?

When you are in your teens, you are confused. You don’t really know who you are or who you wanna be. You know that it is normal and you believe that you’ll have it all figured out once you’re and adult and “grown up”. And here I sit, more confused than ever.. For all my life I’ve felt this weird inner “identity conflict”. I feel too versatile to feel steady. I like so many different things that don’t really fit together and I get thrilled by different things, different ideas and different lifestyles so easily. One day I’m obsessed with this…
