How to Be Alone (And Love It!)

How to Be Alone (And Love It!)

Whenever I have one of those rare nights just to myself, I usually opt for a slow night in with good food, a show and maybe some knitting. This week though, I'm home alone for a full 7 days, so I knew I wanted to get a bit more creative with how I spend time alone. Now a week might be nothing to you – I've had my fair share of across the globe long distance years and temporarily abandoned flatshares, too, and it sure is a huge privilege when spending time alone is one of many options instead of loneliness being the default one.

Midweek Happiness

Midweek Happiness

The last couple of days have been a quite nice mix of work & play – I got back from a lovely family vacation in the mountains, my heart full with impressions of this planet's beautiful nature, and was excited to get back to work. Despite a rather huge work load these weeks, I'm really enjoying working on the projects I have on my plate right now. Earlier this week, I share about the beginnings of my self care journey, something I'd love to incorporate more about here, and I loved the conversation around self care that started from it. Thanks so much for joining in and sharing your thoughts, and I hope you have a lovely week!

The beginnnings of a self care journey

The beginnnings of a self care journey

Lately, I found myself gravitating towards books that in one way or another bring up the question of how we’d live life if we were more aware of its limits, like Paul Kalanithi's When Breath Becomes Air or Chloe Benjamin’s The Immortalists, both of which I think are brilliant, by the way.

As much as I might have changed in many capacities over the course of my almost 29 years, what always has, and, I guess, always will be most important to me are the people I spend my life with. Sure, many of the hats I wear are an important part of my identity, but first and foremost, I always think of myself in relation to others - as a wife, friend, daughter (in law), sister (in law), cat mommy, you name it. Leave me with someone I love and I’m a happy camper, no matter what (ok, unless I actually had to go camping).

Not a Valentine's Day outfit

Not a Valentine's Day outfit

Malte and I never celebrate Valentine's Day, but we do love going on dates! It can be as low-key as a long walk (for which I probably would have opted for flats though) or dinner, date nights are always a favourite around here. I feel good in my own skin when I wear skirts or dresses and Malte loves them on me, too, so more often than not they're my go-to for our dates.

Beauty Favourites: Feed me!

Beauty Favourites: Feed me!

When you read this post, I'm probably on my way to our annual family ski vacation which feels like an excellent opportunity to share some of my current beauty favourites. During the colder months, my skin is typically on the drier side, so I'm particularly partial to nourishing products. Here's what I've been using lately – it's also what I'm bringing with me for the next couple of days in the snow!

Midweek Happiness

Midweek Happiness

To me, one of the many upsides of being self-employed is that I'm able to work from many different places – something I don't take advantage of as often as I wish I did. There's a lot on my to list this week, but since we have a family birthday and an important thing at my mum's work tonight, I figured I could cross off those tasks a few hundrer kilometres further south just as well. These past couple of days have been filled with so many lovely conversations with friends and family, and I couldn't be more thankful for that. WIshing all of you a very happy week, too!

A favourite Travel Uniform

A favourite Travel Uniform

Since I'll be spending a good part of tomorrow on the train to go visit my parents, I thought I'd share one of my all time favourite travel uniforms. It's cosy, comfy, and all pieces are very versatile so I can easily dress them up or down once arrived. A huge tote bag carries everything I need right with me - and believe me, that's a lot! The minimalist purse is a concept I yet have to wrap my head around, and until that happens, I'll happily continue lugging around all the things for whatever situation might come up (think sudden snack needs or a back-up knitting project).

Ethical Fashion Show Look

Ethical Fashion Show Look

Earlier this year Malte and I attended the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin, a sustainable fashion and lifestyle trade show hosted at Kraftwerk, a beautiful location we had actually considered for our wedding a few years ago. It was an absolutely gorgeous event; we heard some very interesting talks and of course there were so many wonderful brands to discover - I still haven't gotten around to reprocessing all the information. While writing this post I realised that I took less outfit shots than I though I did, but at least I can share this one outfit with you!
