#selflovesunday my story 

Growing up in a society that makes us believe we need to be thinner,more beautiful and always flawless is making it quite hard for every woman to love and truly accept herself. Because even those who seem to be perfect to others aim for more. When I was 15 and my body was growing into that body it is today and my hips got wider than the other girls hips  the emotion that I most connected to my body was hate and shame. So before even being fully grown up you already start to tell youself you are not enough, not good enough, not beautiful enough and not thin enough. I was trying out diets and worked out like crazy, I ended up being the thinnest I’ve been for the last 8 years and did it make me happy? No it left me unsatisfied still thinking I’m not good enough. And guess what I didn’t have the queue of man that I expected to have now that I was thinner. I realized that I will never have a healthy relationship with someone if I dont fall in love with myself first. 

It’s important to see which people lift you up and give you strength and which tear you down. It started with cutting a few unhealthy relationships and friendships out of my life, which is hard but you end up happier. The way to selflove took me a while and doubts find their way back every now an then. It’s ok to have those feelings, it’s ok to not always feel amazing! 

I gained back 2 sizes and I struggled with it every now and then but in the end I also gained a lot of self confidence as I realized I’m so much more than my body,my size or my weight. I’m all of my choices,thee good and the bad. I’m the way I laugh about stuff. I’m strong and I’m the woman that i always dreamed of being. I realized I start to become the woman I needed when I was younger, the woman that should’ve told me that I’m beautiful no matter what. That’s when I decided to be that role model for other girls and started my IG account. It helped me a lot to virtually surround myself with women with the same bodytype and look at them appreciating their bodies. I started doing that and receiving all the love and positive feedback overwhelmed me. To be an inspiration to young girls and women my age is is something that I never thought I could ever be and it makes me happier then anything! 

I hope you girls keep on shining and keep on going on our selflove journey. Let’s all be role models, for ourselves, our future children and all the young girls trying to love themselves

#selflovesunday is something I’ll be doing from now on. Sunday is usually the day I take some time for myself, it’s the day I’m doing my weekly skincare routine and take time to do whatever I feel like. Sometimes I just stay at home doing nothing or I go out with my loved ones. It’s the only day I really focus Weiterlesen

Looking back at 2016 

Usually I’m not really into the whole New Year’s Eve thing and I hate how everybody makes resolutions for the next year. But as this year is coming to an end I find myself thinking more and more about everything 2016 brought to me.

It started with one of the best decisions I’ve ever made: starting this blog! Weiterlesen

Reality check

(german version below)

I guess the most frequently comments or messages I receive are from girls telling me they wish they had my confidence or wishing they could accept their bodies like I do. But let me tell you this, we just show our best sides on social media.

Of course I choose the best pic out of 50, I always try to find one where I look as much as I look in real life, but still I wouldn’t choose one Weiterlesen

Sunday inspiration

I’ve been asked a lot of question about being curvy and many girls asked for advice. So I’m trying to bring the most asked ones together.

1. Let’s be real we all know that feeling when our thighs love each other a little too much and can’t stop touching each other in summer. Many girls told me that’s the reason why they don’t wear dresses Weiterlesen

express yourself

Talking to my friend Sofia yesterday made us realize that too man people keep hiding behind their style. Fashion should be something to express who you really are and how you feel. My sytle changed a lot after accepting my bodytype. Weiterlesen

show me your legs

Summer is here and it’s time for showing society that we dont care about their beauty standars. I love to show some leg in the right way (always feeling uncomfy in short skirts) a Shorts or a loose Jumpsuit are the best choice for me when the temperature is rising. Weiterlesen

Numbers

Why do we let numbers control so much of our happiness? Numbers on a scale, numbers in a shirt, number of follower… These things often let us think they define who we are.

A Shopping trip a few days ago made me think about it. I tried on a pants and we all know trying on pants is one of the hardest missions. They were supposed to have a wide fit, I didn’t even have a chance to close it Weiterlesen
