I’m grateful for waking up in a hotel bed and the seconds just before the plane lands. Grateful for a beautiful 2. day in Paris, the opportunity to explore this city, for sunshine in our faces and all these streets and corners and stunning architecture. For all the “wow”s, for rain & sun at once.

For us girls bonding right away, so many wonderful & meaningful conversations, fuelled by real connection and authentic interest – which can be a very rare thing in this business, often being so superficial and competitive. For not traveling alone but being joined by @elenacarriere on this super chill flight back to Hamburg, for a drive on the taxi backseat through this city, smiling, overflowing. And the angels celebrating with me (& letting me know through numbers & synchronicities, yes I’m that weird.) Continue reading

I’m so grateful for my first ever trip to Paris, for being in the city of love, for when I heard @kris_the_cat’s voice in the lobby and ran to hug her tight, for having her back after we had to say bye in Venice last September, I’m grateful for sweet acquaintances and sweeter smiles, for lovely Paris vibes, for being invited to this amazing hotel, given such beautiful opportunities and most importantly: for the changes made by a big company, steps towards greener products, more sustainable packaging, natural herbal formulas – and no animal being tortured in the process. So grateful and relieved that change is happening!!!

Ahh how much I love preparing food for other people! And especially when I can surprise them with how delicious and satisfying a healthy plantbased recipes can taste.

After over 3.5 years of being vegan I sometimes can’t believe that so many people still think this diet is restrictive and you basically chew on celery sticks all day. Far from! You can enjoy healthy but delicious vegan meals without missing out on anything. And honestly guys, I’m not the type of person that stands in the kitchen for hours, creating recipes with 76439 ingredients. All my meals are quite simple and I never weigh or measure anything!

So my friend Linda is staying with me at the moment and today I decided to make some vegan pancakes for her.

I’m grateful for how one 5 min call with that soul mate floods my entire body with endorphins, lets me smile so big, takes my vision for a moment, gets me dancing on the street. How some connections are just so profound, so real, so pure that they can’t be described in words, making me wonder what we were in past lives and who you’ll be when I meet you again, forever thankful for having you in my life as a friend. And as much as my heart broke into bits back then – in recognizing you I found pieces of myself, in loving you I found home and in losing you my art…
