Is productivity the ultimate goal?

It must have been about end of last year that I followed a bunch of – let’s call it – female career empowerment Instagram pages. I was missing some drive and thought those accounts have the potential to give me the necessary butt-kick from time to time. Also, what Instagram affine woman in her 20ies doesn’t enjoy to be addressed as a boss babe or female hustler, especially when the message is packed in pretty letters in a pink colored square? 😉

Meine Sonnencreme Suche hat ein Ende – mit Annemarie Börlind auf Ibiza

Juhuu, endlich ist die Zeit gekommen, ein paar sommerliche Vibes hier auf dem Blog zu verbreiten. Und das von meinem all time Favorite Reiseziel: IBIZA! Obwohl ich nun schon zum 5. Mal auf der Insel war, hatte ich bisher noch nie so viel Zeit in die Recherche nach einer passenden Sonnencreme investiert. Doch da meine Haut im letzten halben Jahr super empfindlich geworden ist, schnell mal zickt und zu Allergien neigt, stand es fĂŒr mich außer Frage, dass meine diesjĂ€hrige Sonnencreme was Inhaltsstoffe angeht absolut unbedenklich sein muss.

Your girl is social media fatiguée

Nope, this isn’t just another Instagram complaint post, so you can keep on reading 😉 While the days got shorter, the light got gloomier and some people might have developed autumn depression symptoms: I found myself in a stage that I first didn’t know how to categorize. After looking at it for some days, I think I’ve found the right words for it. I am not angry or frustrated with Instagram. I somehow ended up caring a little bit less about it every day until scrolling through the app felt just like ‘meh’. I am social media fatiguĂ©e.

Working part-time = hardly working?

What, you’re working part-time? Are you sick? Do you have a kid? And what do you do with all that free time?

Yes, those are the exact questions I got asked by several people already when they heard I work ‘only’ part-time in my corporate job. I have never really shared this decision with you guys and neither have I updated you on how my life feels now. Am I getting bored? Do I finally have time to tackle all these To-Do’s that were in my head constantly? Am I happy? What are my plans for the future? Let’s look at my part-time corporate girl self: six months in.

Embracing Fall w/ CLUSE

Let me be quite honest with you – I am not one of the many bloggers who mention how much fall is their favorite season in every Instagram caption. Sure, as an ‘into-fashion’ kind of girl I do appreciate the increased outfit possibilities (helloo, layering!!) but I am 100 % a summer child and I am usually having a hard time accepting the transition from this sunny warm season into fall. However, when CLUSE asked me to spend a – to me – perfect autumn day with their new La Garconne Butterscotch watch I totally accepted the challenge. Its result? Today’s blogpost including a new favorite autumn-ish breakfast, photo footage from our cutest local coffee shop and foolproof tips on how to get REALLY cozy.
