“Fühl dich Schön!” – macarons from the Schaebens event in Hamburg

In life

You know you are an adult when you skip halloween because you have tons of photos to edit for clients. Freelance life means that I actually rarely get a full day of complete relaxation – in fact, I cannot remember a day in months that did not include at least a few hours of solid work. Still, I wouldn’t trade my situation for the world.

Earlier this week, I was in Hamburg attending an event put on by Schaebens, promoting a daily 30-minute wellness and self-care routine for both the mind, body, and soul. I had an incredible time discovering a new city, and cannot wait to return to Hamburg as soon as possible. My trip was also made even more lovely, as I got to stay at the incredible Superbude Hotel in St. Pauli.

Current Giveaways

I just wanted to remind you guys that I have two amazing giveaways happening right now! One is for a lovely tote bag created by Wild Tussah, an ethical fashion brand working to help local artisans preserve their craft. Another is for two tickets worth 90€ for Bombay Sapphire’s “The Grand Journey” on the 4th of November at 9:00 PM in Berlin. I have attended Bombay Sapphire’s last event and it was incredible (and also featured an entire 5 course feast of vegan delicacies!) so I am sure this event will be just as incredible!

On the web

Love from Berlin's favorite links from around the web

001: Legitimately just binge-watched Haters Back off while editing photo work for clients. Now I was never a huge fan of Miranda Sings on youtube, but I am legit obsessed with her Netflix show. Hands down hilarious.
002: I absolutely love how many bloggers lately are sharing just what goes on behind the scenes, which is why I was obsessed with Jessica’s post. I am really passionate about making people (especially companies) more aware of just how much work goes into blogging and getting people to understand that bloggins is actually a career worthy of respect and monetary compensation.
003: Obsessed with this recipe for creamy vegan pumpkin mac ‘n cheese!
004: Why women’s skateboarding is even more punk than men’s.
005: LOVING Michelle’s post about
supporting your local girl gang. Ladies of the world, unite!
006: Absolutely in love with a pink-grey-blue combo for bedding. So cozy! (source: pinterest)
007: Completely obsessed with this Morrocan Spiced Chickpea Glow Bowl!

  • I need to start watching “Haters Back Off”, I’ve heard so many good things about it! Also loving that article about the business of blogging. It’s always interesting to read about what goes on behind the scenes of other blogs… it’s certainly something a lot of people probably don’t realize.
