SHOP THE LEOPARD TREND:

 

I finally jumped onto the Leo print bandwagon because animal prints are trendy right now. Maybe, you have seen insta girls and fashionistas wearing dresses, skirts (mini – maxi), blouses and swimwear in that particular print.

When I was younger, I think 13 or something like that. I really disliked the Leopard print because I found it tacky and ugly. Also, the print was associated with sex in the 90s – 00s. Even underwear in that print was considered indecent in that time. The bad thing was, that I was conditioned by society to think the same damn way. Which is very stupid, because at the end of a day it is a piece of clothing that has animal prints. Also, isn’t it crazy that people think they know about people’s sexual habits/sexuality due to a certain print?

Sure, some will say that you are what you wear. But I am convinced that people just enjoy the print and can wear whatever the fuck they want to wear. If you wear band tees, that doesn’t mean you are a rock chick. Maybe you enjoy the band or you simply like the style of the T-shirt. And, there is nothing bad about it. So, I hope that we stop judging people unconsciously for the choice of their clothing. Okay – enough with the rambling. 😉

How to style the Leo print trend

Since the Leo print is a statement piece, I would always go with colors like white, grey, black and beige. A Leo skirt can be paired with a white or a black T-shirt or top of any sleeve length. The tops can be plain or have minimalistic prints. A top or a blouse with prints looks good with a button down midi skirt in beige or in light brown. Furthermore, you can wear any shoe you love, I would opt for white sneakers like Allstars Converse chucks or black sandals.

I’ve also fallen for the Leo print trend and wore a lightweight blouse by H&M, distressed jeans skirt with the matching 90s sunglasses to complete the vintage vibes of my outfit.

Now, on to the big no. Never mix the Leo with zebra/snake print because it can look disguised. And please don’t combine the animal print with polka dots, stripes and so on.

See you in the next post!

Last week I celebrated my birthday. And I want to thank my Mama and the universe that I can experience life with all its ups and downs. And this brought me to the idea to talk about my past passions.

Age 27 was a time that thought me many lessons because I’ve experienced a lot of failures. And, I am glad that I experienced those obstacles to become stronger mentally and emotionally and cope with the future. Furthermore, I am happy for the woman that I’ve become/can still become because I am constantly learning. But I am still the hopeless romantic girl and the daydreamer that I’ve been since I can remember. This means that I accept myself and I don’t want to ever give up these characteristics.

Lately, I want to be more in touch with my roots. My roots are what you can consider your ‘old self’. Which stands for something I enjoyed doing in my very early childhood. I think that time defines you and shows you your real passion because as a child you did what made you fun and you weren’t so influenced by your parents, friend and others. Also, you didn’t do what was cool or trendy at that time.

As a little child and a teenager, I loved drawing portraits of my family and people in magazines. Sometimes, I drew anime cartoons too. Furthermore, I like to sing to good vocalists and write my own sort of poems and song texts.

In conclusion, I just want to spend more time drawing, singing and writing. You know connecting to your true self and practicing your passion is a life goal.

Do you have things that you enjoyed in your childhood?

Feeling stuck..

Feeling stuck..

Whenever you feel stuck, especially mentally. I think it’s time to travel and explore new places. You don’t have to visit a foreign country to escape from everyday life. You can literally drive by car to the nearest city that you have/haven’t been to. I am very sure you would see its beauty! Also, in every city, you can explore the nature, the exotic plants. In addition, different cafés, good restaurants, and places to just hang out. Don’t forget that every place you plan to visit always has its own personality and attitude. 

We didn’t drive far away and visited a few locations in Germany that are not so far away from Frankfurt. I hope you enjoy the pictures of our little trips.

A day of gratitude

A day of gratitude

About Jey wearing jeans shorts and basket bag About Jey wearing jeans shorts and basket bag About Jey wearing jeans shorts and basket bagFirst of all, what is gratitude?

Gratitude means being thankful. Also, it helps you see your situation in a different way.

In times of Social Media, we tend to compare our lives to others and forget that we already have everything that we need. We are so caught up wanting what others have that this could possibly lead to dissatisfaction and even to unhappiness. Sometimes, I am guilty of comparing myself too.

And to be honest, anybody can practice gratefulness. The fact that you wake up every day and experience life is a reason to be thankful! Also, I am very sure that you have people who love you which is the most important thing in life.

Being healthy is another reason to be grateful because once we fall sick, we then wish to recover as soon as possible and tend to forget how good life was before the sickness.

Now, I want to show you the way I practice and stop comparing myself.

Why you should be grateful 

  • Healthy habit – a positive mind is a healthy mind
  • It grounds you – even successful people need it
  • Can prevent you from depression 
  • You focus on the things you have
  • Because the most of us have a roof over our head
  • You let go of things that you currently don’t have in life because in the future you could have it if you really want and work for it.
  • Reconnects you with family
  • You have a positive outlook on life
  • Keeps you motivated because you have something to ‘fight‘ for

How I practice gratitude / How you can practice gratitude

  • Whenever I feel down, I just write all the things down that I have. Like for example my family, friends, being healthy and much more.  
  • I help and give people compliments. Because it makes me feel content and people feel valued.
  • Try to write things down in a journal that you have in life like family, friends, people who helped you or even compliments from a stranger
  • Try to eat healthily and do sports so that your body can stay in a good condition  

How to stop comparing yourself to others

  • Detach yourself from anything that could make you unhappy like: Social Media, friends, Family who always put you down or give you the impression that you aren’t good enough.
  • Instead of looking at what others do and feeling bad. Try to change that energy into building the dream life you’ve always wanted.
  • Finally, remember people only share the highlights of their life.

To put it in a nutshell, we’re unfortunately capable of comparing our lives to ‘dream lives‘ BUT we are also capable of enjoying the things we have if we practice gratitude daily and change the view of a situation.

Taking a Walk in the cold

Taking a Walk in the cold

Jey in Seligenstadt Seligenstadt Klostergarten Jey in Seligenstadt Jey in Seligenstadt Jey in SeligenstadtHappy first day of March.

I can’t believe that two months of 2018 went by so fast.

For the upcoming months, I’m trying to post weekly on the blog. So that I can be much more consistent with my content. I will share more photographies, lookbooks and perhaps a bit of my skincare because I think it might be interesting for some of you.

I currently wish it was much warmer than in the pictures.  Thankfully, the sun managed to show itself on the freezy weekend. I really don’t know that it could be that cold in Germany. We went for a quick walk and took a few pictures in Seligenstadt. I was covered up in my jacket, jeans and boots. Also, I wore my new brown sunglasses which elevate this boring winter attire a little.

Write you soon & I hope you like the pictures.
