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…

Why not everybody should vote

Election day is over in Austria and, as with every election in the past years, I have seen loads and loads of facebook posts that told me that I need to vote, how important it is that everyone votes, that it is my moral duty to vote. You see, I’m not so sure about that. Everyone should have the right to vote, and hell…

Move in with your partner? Sure! But wait.

Moving in with your partner can be considered quite a big step. It elevates your relationship, it brings you closer to each other, you official say “That’s the person I wanna spend my life with”. You move your books, your clothes, your home – sometimes not only a few streets but even to a new town. That’s why you should…

Why blogging is actually hard

Blogging, per se, isn’t very difficult for me. I love writing, expressing my thoughts and it’s not likely that I will run out of ideas very soon. I have a million pictures on my computer for it and it’s fun channeling interests like fashion or fitness into the blog. What’s difficult about blogging is that you get yourself out there…

Do NOT put this into your cake!

Everyone who knows me knows too that I love experimenting in the kitchen. When it comes to cooking I like throwing together what sounds nice and mostly that turns out pretty well. Things are differently when it comes to baking and I know that. It’s about consistency and doing in what belongs in with exactly the amount thats suggested –…

Intermittent fasting? Yes, please!

You have probably heard about it already; it’s on facebook, it’s on the news, you can hardly miss it – a “new” form of diet (not “dieting”) that allows you to control your eating habits while not depriving your body of anything. I tried out some concepts already, like 6 meals a day, 3×3 courses, low carb in the evening…

Hustle – the word I hate most atm

There are lot of words that trigger unpleasant connotations in our head. Sometimes other people understand that, sometime they don’t. For me, one of the un-words (and my boyfriend will greatly disagree with this!) at the moment is “to hustle”. Sure. “To hustle” is all over social media. “Hustling” seems to say “Oh look at me I am working 24/7!”…

Making cleaning up fun instead of duty!

Cleaning up the apartment is something everyone of us has to do – even the lucky ones who have a maid (or a mum) who does the main things, we won’t get around mopping up, folding the laundry or washing the dishes from time to time. For many this is a tiresome chore, and they approach it as such –…
