allow me to introduce myself..

Maybe this post should have been the first on my blog. I don't know.. but when I started blogging, I think I didn't really have a clue, what I was doing here - haha! And on the other hand, if it would have been the first post (which was 9 years ago..!!), so many things wouldn't match anymore, because I changed so much since I created this little online diary. Today I feel more comfortable with who I am and what I want. Today I am not ashamed of who I am and what I like. Today I am able to show you who I am. Today I want to show you more than fashion posts and meaningless words. Today I want to dive deep. Today I want to share everything with you, that is touching me. Today I want to spread love, happiness and wisdom, but also fun and more about life in general. Today I want to show you what my soul is all about and help you to connect with yours and remember, who you truly are. Today I want to walk this crazy journey called life - together with you!

When I was in Tulum, I found this cute wall at an amazing place (will show you which one in my Tulum food post) and I had this fun idea of posting these pictures and writing a bit more about me - so you get to know me even better. And since I started writing everything in English, I thought I'm gonna skip the German version today, because you all understand me - I guess?! Hope you like to read more about me... Let's go! ;)

I am 99% vegan. I make exceptions once in a while, but I would never touch meat. I do it for the animals, our planet and my health. You can read more about my WHY here.

I started my blog in 2010. Back in the days it was called ‚The Fruity Thing’, because I loved (and still do!) everything fruity. This is my first post, we took it in front of my grandparents before a family meeting and I was so happy about my new Burberry rain boots. I know it's super funny! :D

Since I was little, I was super into fashion and photography. I think the photography thing I have from my dad (but he loves being behind the camera and I also love being in front) and the fashion love from my grandma, but I try to buy less since a couple of years. Sometimes it works better, sometimes not, but I buy way less then back in the days.

I love my family so much, especially my mom! She will always be one of my best friends, the wisest, most precious human (with the biggest heart) I know and the most important person in my life!

I have a younger brother and we are super close as well, I still call him Babybro but he is not a baby anymore. :)

Most of my closest friends I have for almost my whole life and I am super thankful being surrounded by them.

I used to be a flight attendant for 1 1/2 years but it was not my thing.

I get super excited about dogs (animals in general!).

My friends mean the world to me and I would do anything for them!

I am the most direct person and will always tell the truth of what I think.

I am super social and often the one organizing meet ups with friends, but also need a lot of me time alone.

I love supporting each other and when people feel and act like there is not enough there for everyone, it makes me sad.

I am the person who gets super excited when the sky is in pretty colors.

I am a sun child, forever and ever.

Spirituality is one of the most important topics for me since a couple of years and I love connecting people with it and reading books about it. My fave book ever is ‚Conversations with God‘ and I encourage you, to give it a try!

I love fruits and veggies but also pizza and burgers - it’s all about the balance;) But naturally I am drawn to health food since I was little.

My first food ever was avocado and coconut yogurt and I still love it so much for breakfast.

I try to only use organic natural cosmetics for my skin and organic foods for cooking.

I am super emphatic. I cry when I hear a beautiful song or watch a sad movie. I cry when I had a good yoga class and I am deeply touched by the vibe. I cry often, when I’m home alone and meditate. I cry when someone shares a sad or beautiful story and I cry together with everyone else crying. Yes, I cry a lot, but I love it and wouldn’t wanna change for anything in the world. I always thought I am the only one who is like this, next to my mum (I have it from her), until I met Filip's sister, who is exactly the same - haha (I love you)!!

People will always tell me I looked superficial before they talked to me and then they are very surprised that I am the complete opposite. I actually hate small talk and love going deep (if there’s a connection).

I love traveling but also love coming back to my city, back to friends and family and back to my own bed.

I can't sit normal! Also when working at the office, I will sit cross-legged (like a real yogini pro) in my office chair and seriously feel most comfortable in this position.

I believe that there are no coincidences in life and we get signs from the universe, we just need to open our eyes and surrender.

I don’t feel comfortable talking in front of a bunch of people.

I get most excited about family meetings, when others are annoyed, I‘m here like ‚OMG - I can’t waaaait!‘ - counting the days. :D

For a long time, my mood has been made dependent from the number of my scale. And it is still something I need to work on..

I believe in god, angels, the spiritual world and in so much more. I pray every night and give blessings, but I don’t like religion because I think it separates people from another and I believe that we are all one. If you don't understand this last sentence (I also didn't get it for so long!), then please read 'Conversations with God' - I know I might sound annoying, but then you will.. ;)
