Secret to Motivation | Fitness

As much as i love working out sometimes it’s still hard to get motivated and i know that there a lot of tips and tricks out there which helps you to get yourself up and do something for you body on a regular basis. And one thing is for sure – workout clothes play a huge part because for some reason i’m someone who’s so much more motivated when i’m wearing cool workout clothes – it simply gives you a good feeling and make your training more effective which obviously helps to get the result you are looking for!

So when it comes to workout clothes i’m someone who’s not only wearing tight fitted pieces but i’m also the type of person who only wears dark colors to the gym! I don’t know why but i was never a big fan of those crazy bright colors a lot of people love to wear. For that reason i’m super happy that new H&M  Every Victory Collection offers a lot of those pieces which are not only right up my ally but also affordable too. H&M developed the line in collaboration with the Swedish Olympic team and let me tell you i’m pretty amazed by the quality and the fitting as well (especially the pants will suck you in all the right places but definitely in a comfortable way). So here are my favorite picks that i’m currently wearing on high rotation!

Blue Off The Shoulder Dress

As you might have noticed that i’ve recently worn a lot off the shoulder looks and i thought it’s about time to share a look that’s actually out of my comfort zone. As you guys probably know i’m someone who loves to add some sort of a masculine touch to my looks but this time it's different. Because in my opinion this specific dress that i wore last week couldn’t be more feminine.  In this case i opted for nude sandals which gives the whole look a very balanced feel without being overly discrating from the lovely details of the dress. I don’t know why but somehow this dress always reminds me of Sophia Loren but also of Brigitte Bardot which is defnitely not a bad thing. So if you’re looking for the perfect, super comfy midi dress, look no further because the super light fabric seems to be the perfect option for those upcoming hot summer days!

Start Working Out at Home | Fitness

A few weeks ago i published my first post about my fitness journey which actually plays a huge part in my life since i already mentioned that i’ve always been pretty athletic and always enjoyed being active. So today i want to talk about my experience when it comes to working out at home.

A year ago i tried out Kayla Itsines’s 12-week Guide but after week 8 i realised that i’m not the type of person who loves to follow a certain plan which someone else created. So since youtube not only taught me how to use a camera properly and get your color grading to the next level when it comes to photoshop i thought it might be also the right place to search for workout sessions that i can choose by myself. Because whenever i’m trying out something new i noticed that i get much more motivated and enthusiastic in contrast to a finished plan. It’s not about loosing weight it’s all about getting leaner, stronger and fitter! So first things first - we all know that nutrion plays a huge part and it’s true that abs are made in the kitchen but today i’m showing you my favorite workouts when it comes to train  at home! I know that at the beginning it’s really hard to get motivated and overcome the inner laziness – especially when you thinking about working out at home – hello cozy couch! But like i said it’s all about trying out different exercises and have fun with new ways to train your body instead of following a certain plan which in my opion often put yourself under pressure follwed by a negative impact on the brain – and in all honesty i have always been a strongly believer that you should have a nice balance when it comes to your personal training programs and simply stay away from anything that screams „this is the only way that works“ because what works for my body might not work work for you since everyone’s different – starting from the metabolism to the bone structure etc.

Denim Culotte & Off the Shoulder Top

Something different today – nope - quite the oppostie i would say! An off shoulder top combined with a culotte! Obviously a trend that just won’t die! But let’s be honest – this concept of showing your ankles or shoulders seems to be working for everybody this summer! So what your waiting for –  try in a bright color or bold print to spice up your erverday look!

Black Culotte

Let me introduce you guys to the ultimate pants that you can rock to any occasion! I got thise culottes a few weeks ago and ever since them i found myself wearing this piece of clothing like nobodys business – at the beach, out for dinner, for a stroll in the city, at home you name it! It’s super adaptable and comfortable at the same time which is of course not only a mayor selling point but also super important when it comes to packing for your next trip!

"NOW" | Bread & Butter by Zalando

Have you ever experienced a FOMO (fear of missing out)! Usually i’m someone who’s pretty chilled when it comes down to it but last week was one of those moments where i have wished i could be at two places at the same time! Because exactly one week ago i was acutally invited to the Launch Event of the new „Bread & Butter“ concept which will be hosted by Zalando for the very first time in September! Unfortunately i already confirmed another trip for that day and so i only had the chance to see a few glimpes of the event via their Snapchat.

But let me tell you - this is just the beginning and I’m happy to tell you more about it! You may ask yourself what’s so different since the Bread and Butter already existes since 2003 which is acutally  known as the B2B fashion fair during Berlin Fashion Week! But we all know the fashion industry is constantly evolving and changes are on the menu every season! And that’s why Zalando decided to aquire the trade fair last year in order to make it accessible to ALL! Which means that from the 2nd to the 4th of September 2016 everyone will be invited to participate at the Bread & Butter – online and offline!  It will not only be focused on fashion where you will find the latest fashion innovations and a lot of brands displaying their latest pieces (which you can also  shop right away), the new concepts also includes concerts with upcoming new artists (big bonus in my opinion) and a conference like the panel discussion which took place during the preview party based around the motto "NOW" last monday! Tank Magazine CEO Caroline Issa was hosting the panel who explained the whole concept followed by an on-stage discussion between speakers such as Dirk Schoenberger (Creative Director Adidas), Jeremy Abbett (Creative Evangelist Google), Matt Chlebek (Music Curator Boiler Room) and Marina Hoermanseder (Fashion Designer) about the the developments of trends, authenticity and social media influencers!

Personally i think it’s a great way to give everyone the chance to be part of this event (sounds more like an amazing fashion festival) in order to  interact with  each other and to get the opportunity to talk to the brands and experience the latest products by themselves. So as i already mentioned i wasn’t able to join the event but i’m happy to keep you guys updated about this brand new format in the next few months since a lot of cool things will happen during the B&B in September!

Personal Style Uniform | Culotte

If there is one piece of clothing that i would wear for the rest of my life then i would probably choose my much loved culotte! These pants truly became a big part of my signature look that i can wear to literally any occasion. Because personally i think it’s important to find your personal style uniform that gives you a good feeling about yourself and makes you happy whenever you stand in front of your wardobe which should be full of pieces that you really love! So this time i went for a mix and match situation – which means that i combined to different striped pattern and threw over this amazing scarf that adds a little bit more color to the whole look! Since i also became a big big fan of sneakers over the last few months i choose this simple white pair to create a more sporty look!
