What can I say?

Two days ago, we arrived in Bol. Bol is located in the south of the isle Brac in Croatia. You can reach everything here on foot because it is a small place.

Some of you who know or follow me on Instagram, might know that the isle has a special place in my heart. The reason why this place is so magical to me, is that I have been here 5 years ago. It was the first couple-vacation of Jan and me. It’s really crazy how time flies by… Therefore, walking through Bol definitely wakes up old memories.

In that evening we went to Topolino and ate a gigantic Pizza which was very cheap.
Yesterday was a beach day for us. We took many pictures as always. Then next to the famous beach Zlatni Rat, we found a quiet place to soak up the sun.

After stuffing our bellies at Pumparella, we went for a walk and talked about the beautiful memories.

This is my second autumn outfit that is on my blog.  On Friday we took the time to shoot these pictures in Frankfurt.

As you might see, I kept this look quite dark because we are entering into the colder months. But I tried to spice it up with white details.

I wore my favorite thick brown cardigan. Which you have seen in my other posts. Also, I paired this autumn look with my black shirt and comfy jeans from Levi’s. The highlight of my outfit are my granny white pumps.  They have the perfect heel and are very comfortable. By the way, I think my white pumps give my outfit a vintage touch. Don’t you think the same? Lastly, I completed the whole look with my cute bag from Jessica Buurman.

How to be more Positive

How to be more Positive

Today I want to talk about staying positive. What I do to be more positive and how I deal with negative thoughts.

Lately, I have been letting negative energy into my life. And I have noticed that my thoughts changed me in a way that I wasn’t proud of. Those thoughts aka negativity made me do and say things I would never say. Furthermore, those negative thoughts, made me feel anxious and sad.

Now, you would ask yourself what did I do to overcome this and turn negative thoughts into positive thoughts? My answer would be – change your mind and thoughts! Because you are able to control your subconscious mind. When I started doing that, everything that happened didn’t affect nor consigned me anymore. I didn’t allow anything to control or change my happiness because I wanted to be the one that is in control of my emotions.

Ways to be more positive

– Be more grateful
– Not taking things personally
– Feeding my “subconscious mind” with positive pictures and
– Telling myself that I would conquer the world, haha!
– Lastly, not giving a fuck anymore

Also, it is important that you believe in good things and in yourself. Because if you don’t do that, how can you build more positivity into your life? 🙂

This is my personal way of being more positive in life. I hope I could help you guys or tell me what you do.

P.S. I really enjoyed writing this little post, because it made me smile. 🙂 & if you want to know more about the subconscious mind, I would recommend you this book.

Last week was such an exhausting week. Thankfully, we finally found time to shoot this look on Saturday.

After that, we had late breakfast and went mobile phone hunting for the babe in Frankfurt. Jan decided to go to Team Android.  Therefore he bought a Samsung Galaxy S8+ after using his iPhones since more than 6 years. I’m still thinking if I should switch too, but we’ll see. 🙂

As I have said, we drove to Frankfurt and took these pictures of my first autumn look. I wore my old faux fur west on top of my white blouse which I forgot to iron – please bear with me. Haha! I paired my grey jeans with my mules from ASOS, that looks like the Princeton Slippers from Gucci. Lastly, I threw on my new vintage sunglasses from Mango.

Now let’s move on to the most important part – my new bag.  I saw the Pierce bag the first time by J.W.Anderson and quickly fell in love. But it was out of reach for me because I don’t wanted to spend so much money for a trendy bag. When I found out that Jessica Buurman had the same one for a much lower price point and great quality, I couldn’t resist. 🙂  Jessica Buurman is an online shop where you can order designer lookalikes for great quality and a hella low price. You should definitely check their page out. Also, you will receive 10 % on your first order, so rush! I ordered my bag last month and it took very long to arrive in Germany.

By the way, the Pierce bag is available in 3 colors and is made out of leather. And this particular one is named ‘Elise bag’ on their page.

What do you guys think of my new bag?

See you in my next post!

Simple Pho Chay Recipe

Simple Pho Chay Recipe

Today I wanted to share with you my own version of making vegetarian Pho soup aka Pho Chay. As the days are getting colder and we have welcomed September, I thought why not share one of my favorite soups.

Please keep in mind, that this dish is inspired by a Vietnamese cuisine and this is the way I love making my own soup.

Pho Chay is the vegetarian or vegan version from Pho Bo. Pho means soup in Vietnamese and Chay stands for vegetables.

As you might know, I always try to keep my recipes short and quick.

Ingredients for Pho Chay 2 p.

3x cloves

2x star anise

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1x big onion

1 thumb sized ginger

2-3 x pak choi

1 liter of vegetable stock

1 teaspoon of soy sauce

lastly, some cilantro, spring onions, Thai chili, sprouts and Thai basil

Instructions for the Pho Chay

1.First of all put the spices ( anise star, cloves and cinnamon) in the heated pot and roast it a bit.

2. After that throw in the halved onions and ginger and roast them with the spices together until the color turns.

3. Then add in 1 liter of vegetable stock water and let the broth cook with the other ingredients.

4. Now it is time to throw in the vegetables that you like – my choice: pak choi & carrots

5. Season the broth with soy sauce and let the broth simmer for 15 minutes. After that remove the spices, ginger and onions out of the broth.

6. At this same time cook your rice noodles according to the package instruction.

7. After that take a separate plate where I add my favorites vegetables like Asian basil, sprouts, Thai chili, spring onions and cilantro.

8. The final & fun part: take a bowl and put in your cooked noodles, herbs and pour in your yummy broth and enjoy!

I hope you like this Pho Chay recipe and if you do, please leave a comment.

P.S. Don’t forget to serve the Pho Chay with hoisin and sriracha sauce!!
