Empower yourself – remember these 3 things!

Women are often exposed to judgement – by our peers, people near to us and ourselves. While the judgement for sure can be positive and negative, it all influences our decisions and feelings – what we wear, how we express ourselves, often even how confident we feel about ourselves. But is that really necessary? No, definitely not. Judgment, in form…

Fennel – vegetable of the season

It’s getting colder and we need our immune system to toughen up. I don’t know how healthy or sporty you are, but now is the time to equip your body with the necessary weapons for the cold months! We all know that we should eat more vegetables – at least 5 times a day! But if you have a lot…

Outfitpost: Casual Sundays

I can never decide for my favorite season. Now, with all these colorful leaves and the earthy smell in the air, I’d definitely go for autumn.   Red ALWAYS works. Especially in fall. I love the many ways you can insert red into your outfit – lips, nails or clothes. You don’t go out on Sundays – you’re having brunch…

3 ways to improve your blog-productiveness

Being relatively new in the blog business, I don’t face a lot of problems coming up with ideas or finding time for my blog. Normally, I just write whenever and however I please. Lately, however, I have discovered that I waste a lot of potential and productive time, simply by being too unfocused and inconsistent. I might have good ideas,…

Ways to meditate 1 – Guided meditation

Guided Meditation for me was the logical point to start this journey. The notion of just closing your eyes and switching off your thoughts may seem difficult to you at first – as it seemed to me. While everyone is so thrilled by the idea of “meditating”, I always wondered how they do that – concentrate on themselves, don’t letting…

Ways to meditate – the series

Meditation is maybe the most traditional way to relax, free the mind, and calm down after a stressful period. While it is generally thought of originating in India and the buddhist religion, meditation has long found its way into the western culture and our hearts. I personally haven’t done meditation, in the traditional sense, for a very long time. I…

Jewelry – finishing your outfit in fall/winter 17

These little sparkly things are supposed to be “girls best friends”. Well, I already have a pretty awesome best friend, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t absolutely adore jewelry too! It’s been quite a blessing, the invention of fake jewelry, because, if we’re honest, they really look damn good, and if we want to keep up and change our…

That one advice that gets you started

As I’ve already mentioned, starting this blog was kind of a, personal, challenge for me. I can imagine that there are many things that you always wanted to do, but never dared to because you didn’t feel ready. Quite frankly I think that the notion of being “ready” is one of our greatest problems in modern day society. Why can…

The #metoo movement

I do consider myself a feminist – so of course the #metoo movement, the movement asking women to raise awareness to the frequency of sexual harassment and assaults, is something I would like to comment on. On the first glance, it’s a great movement. But unfortunately, to everything good there is also always a negative/difficult side. What is positive about…

Time to move – but not feel lonely!

Moving, at the moment, is quite an important topic for me. I have already moved various times during my life  – I moved from the apartment in one part of Linz to another. Finding new friends wasn’t particularly difficult. I went to school, I grew up with them, we had neighbours, and, of course, I also had my parents. Being…
