We were staying in Paris

I think there’s hardly a city portrayed more on Social Media than Paris: glitter eiffel tower snaps, flashy Dior store fronts or green chairs at Tuileries. Even if you’ve never been there, you could probably name a hundred more images that are oh so typical for the French capital. However, my feeling of Paris was slightly afflicted by the one and only time I had visited the city: around 12 years ago on a winter school trip. All I remember was cold wind, long queues and boring museums (teenagers just have no appreciation, right? 😉 ).

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 für mich außer Frage, dass meine diesjährige 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 fatiguée.

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.
