The 1 Thing I had to learn about Time

I remember very clearly how a friend threw these words at me: “Jecky, you have more ideas than possibilities”. Back then I was still a teenager who was way too influenced by American TV shows and glossy magazines, imagining that one day she would live a life just as glamorous as the one on O.C., California.

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to decorating your living room for fall

Even though I might call myself all equipped for fall when it comes to my wardrobe, there’s one part of my life I’ve been quite lazy with so far in terms autumn make-over: our apartment. I can just remember so well how motivated I was, when we just moved it – literally visiting interior shops on a daily! However, that first excitement faded away quickly and I found myself living with the same decoration (this exact one) for three years! That’s why when TK Maxx asked me whether I’d like to restyle my home for autumn I was like: You bet, let’s do this! Clearly I used that chance to create a new interior inspo blog post for all you girls out there feeling just like me when it comes to changing your interior 😉 The lazy Girl’s Guide to decorating your Living Room for Fall!

Beyond Technology: 5 Tips for better blog photos

‘Not another blogger talking about techniques for improving your photography skills’ you might think. But in this post, I’d like to capture something different. The tips I want to share with you today are neither about photography equipment, not technical stuff or apps for editing. I’d like to cover something beyond that, things to consider that are not obvious, won’t make you say ‘duh’ and that I had to learn over years.

My very first Q&A

Some weeks ago I’ve asked you guys to send me any question you might have for me because I had this very special post in mind: my first ever Q&A! I love how the mix of the questions covered everything from fashion blogging (obviously), over personal topics as well as my hood a.k.a. Erlangen city. So, let’s get right to it…
