Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers.

I asked you to ask me some questions on Instagram a while ago and actually got quite a few.. I’m going to answer them in German and English as I got questions in both languages. Oh and by the way, before I start: I also have a Tumblr account (plantifulalexandra) so there is always the option to ask me something there, even anonymously. So, let’s start answering.. Why and why did you start with Instagram? I actually scrolled down to the start of my account for this: I started in May 2015. And why? Well, I’ve been looking through Instagram already for…

How veganism changed my life.

Going vegan changed so much more for me than just the way I eat, it literally turned my whole life around. This probably sounds so cliché, I know, but it’s true. So here’s what changed for me: Veganism cured my unhealthy relationship with food Since being a teenager I had struggled with my eating habits and even had an eating disorder, you can read more about this here. Even after overcoming this phase, my relationship with food was never relaxed, I still had lots of disordered thoughts in my mind, was often restricting myself, then again eating way too much, having crazy cravings…

Staying healthy when working fulltime/having little time: Eating

Like I said in my previous post, I’d like to share some tips with you on how to eat healthy when you have limited time. So let’s get straight to the point, here’s what I’m doing: Eat a wholefood plantbased diet! For me this is the healthiest diet in the world and the cheapest and simplest as well! If you don’t have a lot of time between getting up in the morning and due to that have no time for breakfast, try to get up at least 15-20min earlier to get in a healthy breakfast – you will get used to this…

Staying healthy when working fulltime / having little time?

Many people say they don’t have the time for eating healthy and working out when they have a fulltime job. Especially a 9-5 job can be tricky as you leave the house in the morning and come home in the evening so you don’t have a full morning afternoon to get something done. I know how it feels, I just started working a fulltime job this week again but so far everything is fine. On a sidenote: No, I’m not sharing my experiences from 3 days of working, I already worked fulltime before I went studying and had quite a long…

Sacrificing your dreams for others?

So last night was really emotional for me. I had a discussion with my parents about.. well, basically about what’s the right way to live your life. I told them I want to get a job now after studying to – among other things – save up for travelling later in my life and where I plan on travelling. Of course, my parents didn’t agree with this. They say I’m not normal and I can’t just do this and that I have to think about my future. But.. isn’t this my future? Ah no.. I forgot. My future is to…

Staying positive can be hard sometimes.

I just got another refusal for a job I applied for so I start to get a little frustrated. I know I shouldn’t because this doesn’t make anything better and I should stay motivated. But this was a job I really wanted to do so it’s easier said than done. I even called them to get a feedback and to ask if there really is no change to get an invitation for an interview because I told myself not to give up that easily anymore. (Edit: Ok, they refused me because they need someone right now and not in a…

They say it’s never too late..

..to start a blog. 😉 Well, so the last weeks I was surfing on the internet quite a lot and found a lot of blogs and youtube channels that have been so inspiring to me that somehow this evening out of the blue I decided to launch a blog. I have absolutely no experience with blogs but hey – who has when starting a blog? 😀 In this post I just wanna introduce myself a little and what I plan to put on this blog.
