MoMo #77 – How to abandon self criticism and become your own biggest fan

Every time I’ve had a rough week, I notice a certain behaviour of mine that I always fall into. I criticize myself, nothing that I am doing seems to be good enough in those situations and I generally feel like I can’t do anything (right). This feeling should be familiar to a lot of you, as according to studies, women show this behavior on average 8 times a day. And even though this criticism towards ourselves only leads to even more frustration, it sems so hard to shut this negativ inner voice down. So what is there to do in order to abandon self-criticism and become our own biggest fans?

About military jackets and a more careless me

Walking around in a military blazer like this in public almost certainly makes some people think you are wearing a costume. That is exactly what happened when we were shooting this outfit. As we were looking for a good spot to shoot in, I couldn’t help but imagine how many passers-by must at least think: hm, this is interesting!

I’ve browsed literally every online shop to find the best baskets and straw bags for you (and me 😉 ) to come up with a list including everything from low price to high fashion and even a version from our favorite Swedish furniture retailer…

MoMo #76 How to spring clean your mind

Last weekend officially marked the beginning of spring to me: for this year’s first time I ate outside, fulfilled the blogger’s cliché of a picture in front of cherry blossom tree and – rather stereotypical – thouroughly cleaned the flat. And while I was getting rid of clothes and a lot of other stuff, I couldn’t help but notice that one area is spring cleaned up way too seldomly – our mind!

The come back of logo T-Shirts

My grandma always said, if you wanna meet the current trend, just put all the clothes you wear day after day onto a pile and after some time turn this pile around. Yes, in fashion every trend makes a come back someday – just like the logo t-shirt.

Lonely by blogging

Blogging – the dream job of all fashionistas, for which you don’t even have to leave the bed…but the assumed dream has its many disadvantages, too. One of which I want to talk about with you today – loneliness.
