Curves, and what if you hate them

Curves, you can hate them, you can love them, but when you have them you have to deal with them. Honestly I have a real hate-relationship with my curves. I feel like my ass and my boobs hold me back a lot. I do not like them at all. I can not wear my favorite style, they are not actually sport friendly, they make me look fat.

They make me look fat. There I said it. This is the biggest issue I have with my boobs and legs. They make me look fat. I can repeat it a million times. But I can not change them. I could get rid of them with surgery, but first it’s not worth the investment and the risks. So I am trying to get rid of them with exercising, minimizing bra’s.. . I am jealous when people loose weight on their chest. Ok, I feel like a complainer right now.

Curves are “embraced” nowadays. And how hard I try, I do not seem to succeed in “embracing” them. They keep on bothering me. Why do I adore skinny people and why do I seem not able to get that fantasy out of my head. During the whole recovery process I always ended up wanting to be thin. Still. I feel amazing when I am able to run 10K, I feel amazing that I see my body become more strong. But I also want to loose my curves please.

So that’s when I thought, I do not need to embrace them because everybody else does. I just have to keep going. Exercising makes me feel good, one day I will succeed in loving my body.  But right now, I do not embrace my curves. I embrace the strength I have to push me for running 10 K 3 times a week. The strength to go boarding all day long! So thank you persistence for not letting me down!

Flamingos are hot and happening, hooked on those cute little birds like me.. well thennyou will love this piece of work. Ideal for all ladies who love to it a bit more special.

The following piece is even a bit more special. It’s a pink mandala. Ideal for those who love mandalas but would love it more subtile than a regular black one. You will notice that this one actually a bit less “in your face.” So if you are still in doubt a pink version might be the solution.

And yes flowers can’t miss in this post. The watercolortechnique is ideal for these kind of tattoos. I absolutely love the realistic part of these tattoos. Flowers are timeless, they do not have to mean anything, they can just be pretty. And those regular roses, we have seen them all, time for something new!

Nice thing about these pink tattoos is that they make boring design instandly more awesome! A normal design is more special when it’s completly in pink. Just because it’s not seen that often it’s already a better choice! Because honestly having the same tattoo as somebody else is not that pleasant.

What’s your favorite tattoo in this post? I fell in love with the mandala. I would love to have a mandala but often they are soooo big. This one is ideal for me. Perhaps on my back. Oh and yes that flamingo… yes that one is also amazing.

Co couture as a plus

I was looking for a bomber already a few weeks, did not want to spend too much and then this one popped up!

And that sweater! Seriously, how can you not love it? The color, the birds and you should feel it! It is so soft! I actually hope it will no be too hot for the following weeks.
Both of these items are timeless because I know I will wear it a million times.

Guess you can ser my style switches from tomboy/street to Parisian! I actually believe this is the best way to dress for me. I am not a girly girl. But I was planning on starting to wear dresses again! Haha let’s hope that next week I can show you some dresses. I still need to get a bit more confident to wear dresses!

Sad world.

Hi guys, I had another blog planned for today. But I rescheduled. I felt like my complaints, my clothes or my whatever was not important. It is not important. Today I just want to share love.

After Paris, Brussels,… it was that time again. We woke up with the horrible news that over 20 innocent people lost their life. Each day people are killed for no reason. And whenever it is close to home we are brutally awaken by the fact that it also could happen to us. For people in the Middle East it can actually happen each minute.

We do not need to pray. We do need to act. Spread love and conquer the hate! Not only in Europe but all over the world. Terrorism, drugwars, trafficing, it kills daily. Innocent lifes are taken. And we do nothing.

Ok, we can not save an entire world, but we can spread a vibe! A vibe of love, positivity and compassion! Don’t be a racist, don’t be homophonic, be openminded!

Do not live in fear. Fear is not what we should show! We should show positivity and strenght!

My thoughts are with all of you!

Dr Organic Lavender conditioner

Today I wanted to introduce to you my favorite conditioner! Not only do I love their skinproducts I also gave the conditioner a try… read why this organic, ecofriendly hairconditioner became my favorite!

Lavender.

This conditioner smells already amazing when I open the bottle! A smell of Lavender takes over the room. I take a small amount and rub it over my head. Heaven. The lavender smell is strong, not to chemical. Lush lovers can compare it with Sleepy! It actually smells the same. Lavender has a relaxing effect and that’s why I love it so much. I have a lot of stress and if something has a relaxing effect I have to try it.

The effect
I was looking for a great conditioner for a little while. I tried a lot of Lush products but they were not that effective. I need strong conditioner because I have so much hair! I let it dry to the air and don’t comb it. No I am not covered with dreads. I just try to grow healthy, long hair! Combing wet hair and blowdryers are so bad. This conditioner detangles my hair and it feels soft. Plus the lavender smell really lasts long!

Organic
I only use animalfriendly products. I am a big fan from Alverde, but it’s only available in Germany. I also love Lush but sometimes I love to try other products and save money! I bought this lavender conditioner 2 for the price of 1! I paid €8,99 for 2 bottles! Ow it’s a bargain. Dr Organic often has these amazing sales and I love sales.
Next the product has no chemical ingredients and that’s why it is ideal for everybody!

If you take a look at the picture you can see immediately the ingredients and that it’s free from damaging products!

Did you already try Dr Organic products? Do you love lavender because this is a musthave!

Lush’s MoM bath bomb

Another week another test! This week I wanted to tell you all about the Mother’s Day Bath Bomb. With a very correct but also rather boring name “MUM”. When you read this review you will know if this bath bomb is something for you!

Pinkish delight
The Mum bath bomb has these lovely pink, green and yellow colors and a real cool look. It was the reason why I picked it up in the store. You also had the dad-version,’ but I loved these colors more!
The letters are so cute that it’s absolutely a great gift! Yes the look and colors are already perfect.

Lemon and roses
The scent of this bath bomb is a mix of oranges, lemons and roses. Making it floral yet fruity. I liked it a lot when I grabed it up in the store. My boyfriend was not convinced. When I used this Mum the entire bathroom smelled so fresh. I love it. I have to admit that I was not really relaxed, it more awakend my senses.

img_7312

The result
You will have a fizzy bath bomb for a few minutes leaving a nice present and color behind. I do admit that I did not notice any moisturizing effects. It was nice to use, but not the most and best bath bomb that I tried. I find the effect to low for the price. Let’s say a bigger bath bomb is worth more the investment.

The little note did put a smile on my face.

Bought this combine it with bath melt or bubble bar to experience the full package and have a moisturized skin. I do prefer a bath melt instead of this bomb and they are only half the price.

Did you try this bath bomb? Did you enjoy it? Pro’s and cons?
