30 and… lost?

When I was younger I always thought that by the age of 30 I’d have my life “figured out”. Well, let me tell you.. I turned 30 last year and I feel more lost in life than I ever have before. I’m not gonna lie, often I feel like I’m a failure, I honestly do. Deep inside I know it’s not true but seeing what others my age or younger are doing I’m like “look at them, look what they’ve achieved, how they make their dreams come true, make money, start a business, travel to amazing places.. and what are…

Life Update – April 2019

On Instagram I asked you what topics you’d be interested to read about on my blog and I got a few people asking me about what I’m doing right now, how long I’m gonna stay in Australia, what the plan is. To be honest, there’s not too much going on right now and I’m pretty sure my life looks a lot more interesting online than it actually is, haha. Anyway, here we go.. Where am I right now? After 4 months in Queensland I flew over to Western Australia end of January and right now I still live in a…

About my life in Bali.

[Werbung, da Firmennennung / Advertisement]   I already left Bali 3 months ago after staying there from the end of May until the end of August so I’m a bit late but I still wanted to write a blogpost about my experiences in Indonesia, mainly in Canggu, Bali. While being there and also still after I got quite a few questions about how I like it, what I do there, if it’s easy and safe to travel there,.. so I want to share my experiences. Why did I travel to Bali? I actually didn’t plan on staying in Bali that…

Intermittent Fasting? Diet Update.

A few months ago I talked about why I’m not practicing intermittent fasting. In case you wanna read about this first, you can find the blogpost here. However, sometimes your eating habits change because of your current life situation or just because you choose to try something new. So actually right now I’m kinda practicing intermittent fasting by accident, just that it’s not breakfast I leave out but dinner. Before you judge and say it’s unhealthy, I only do it to lose weight etc. – wrong, that’s not the case at all. First of all: I actually never got the…

Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers. Pt. 2

This week I asked you to leave me some questions for a Q&A here on my blog. So here are my answers to your questions: 1. What are you most excited about now that you quit your job? You would probably think of something like “travelling, finding my dream job,..” but no. Actually for me the most exciting thing is to have the whole day for myself, to wake up thinking “Ok, so what am I gonna do today?”, to be able to go for a run when the weather is good, to say yes to events and meeting people just…

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…

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…

To be free.

So far in my life there had never been a point where I loved everything I do – except for when I was a child, I guess (although even back then there had been days I didn’t wanna go to kindergarten). In school I had to do stuff I couldn’t stand all the time. After school there was a phase when I had nothing to do except for a part-time job at Subway (actually my favourite job so far) but on the side had the pressure to write applications and go to job interviews. I didn’t enjoy the job I…

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…
