Spring’s here + lux weekend in Berlin

Hey friends,

just to prevent you from another “oh still that old post, nothing new on here, yawn”-moment ; a little update.

I spent the weekend in Berlin together with my dad and a big part of my family! We came together to celebrate my lovely cousin Claras birthday! For me, who watches every coin right know to save up money for amazing future trips (woooo) [trips in terms of travelling 😉 ]  these three days were luuuux! Went to a vietnamese restaurant the first day, bought TONS of fresh local organic veggies from a little village shop to make a nice potato-swede-cauliflower-carrot casserolethe other day, vegan choc-mint icecream at night (don’t take me as an example kids) aaaand a raw vegan acai-bowl (best thing are the raspberries and raw cocoa nibs) + “Macao” cocoa with maca + glutenfree vegan cookie @ HOPE Superfood Deli. Deeelish guys!! So, as I said, luxury, and I am really grateful for the quality family time we had together 🙂

Right, now I really have to study efficiently for my upcoming exams and nutrition study! By the way: it is spring already (NUTS!) I love love love it! Favourite time 🙂 Alright, hugs to you, stay healthy, cheers Jula xxx

A little summer dream

p1340934

These pictures make me dream of warm, dusty pink summer days.cats2Breakfast with a friend, coating oneself with that warmth in the air, the room bathed in light. You are about to slip into your favorite sheer summer dress and the strap sandals that are so perfectly adjusted to your feet because of long summer walks over the past years. p1340936

Until then, I enjoy my day off with capturing these visions via photographs and sharing it with you guys, hoping to stimulate you own sentiency for summery vibes ❤

 

love for flea markets

Hey pals,

I am so tired right now. It’s close to 2 am and I just got back from a house party, whose hosts I didn’t know at all. Wasn’t my type of party, too much smoke etc, and already super tired! Not surprising tho after a day like this; woke up early to spent the day at one of the biggest flea markets of the country (I guess) with my mum and sister, it was cold but I felt good and it was amazing to have them both around! I got a nice big wooden box and ladder (for half the actual price because the seller liked my eye colour so much 😀 ). Tomorrow (or rather later today) we’ll have a Halloween party but I already decided not to party too hard, as I just wanna feel good and not drained! 

So sleep well and remember : the best project you’ll ever work on is you! Haha, out of context but u know, it’s important xx    

My day through 20mm/f1.7

p1310959HEJ kids and lovers!

Life got upgraded yesterday; I bought myself a new lens, which is barely larger than the lid of a marmalade jar! It’s the Panasonic Lumix 20mm/f1.7 Pancake (did I hear pancake??) lens which is a prime lens and, obviously, extremely light-sensitive with it’s wide aperture!

I got it through eBay-kleinanzeigen.de which I currently am obsessed with! It’s so light that I am able to carry my fairly big Lumix GH3 in my purse all day! A dream!

So yesterday my sister and I went to a furniture shop to get me a mattress and pillow, then we wanted to collect a chair (via eBay again) but it didn’t fit my need. So we went to my new flatshare and put up my bed, had chinese take-away and cider and just chilled on the floor in that empty flat… real cozy, honestly 😀

The next days are all about moving in and moving stuff, so… weird. Anytime I moved in the last 2 years (abroad) I didn’t have too much stuff and no furniture. But I am so so so lucky and grateful to have those glorious people around who help me day in and out! Like in general… I am fricking thankful for my family and friends. They give me so much and deserve all my love ❤

Hello friends 🙂

Holidays started for me today, I’ll tell you more about that later…

What is it that I am doing these days? Well, I basically chill in my sisters flat, her housemates (and her ofc) just as the whole vibe in there is just so relaxing and nice! Also, Lara and I went to the lake yesterday which is approximately a 30 min bike ride, it was super hot but also so stormy haha, not that cozy. Today I went to the frisbee training the first time since the start of august, I was seriously too busy to go the last 2 weeks.. wow! So yeah.. now I’ve got one week left in Leipzig before heading to Berlin, meeting my lovely Anna and then driving to Danzig with the old squad from school times 😛 September is still completely free, I am having some huge ideas and am hoping to realize them (travel-wise) with one special babe.

Alright, I’ve got a lot to share with you guys. Lets start with these pictures my friend Lotte took of me when we were having our birthday party… She is quite talented, isn’t she?

Catch you later friends, take care:)

Throwback Portugal

 

 

1aaaaa

1aaaa

Just a little throwback to our b-e-a-utiful time (comment if you get it 😉 ) in Porto.. gosh, I remember how I couldn’t realize being actually there, on the road, in a car, at the beach, in our own house, all along. And I knew it would seem like a fairytale when I’d return some day. We didn’t stay as long as we’d thought, but this -to me- only means that we’ll be back soon. Looking forward to actually start surfing and feel the truly energetic strength of the waves… it’s not explainable but I felt something I haven’t felt before when jumping into the waves in February. However, I am grateful for the very moment, really am. Got football shoes today for frisbee… excited to try them out. My mum said I look like a little football fanatic boy when walking in them in our flat 😀

Much love and light to every single one of you, we are one ❤

 

Long weekend (+smoothie bowl)

As I am working from home it really feels the same, whether it is a official holiday or not, but I am using the long weekend to get some things done with other people. That’s why I’m heading to Berlin tomorrow to meet up with Anna and another friend, gosh, we see each other so rarely atm, but we are still deeply connected which makes it easier 🙂

Yesterday evening I went to Ultimate Frisbee the second time, alone, mixed with 20 or so students that I didn’t know. Well, it went super well! Believe me when I say that I haven’t done anything nearly as exhausting as this for a very long time… but our game was wrong haha and I even scored a few times 😀 Besides, the team spirit is really special… really good! Unlike when climbing or canoeing or cycling, you really are part of a team and have to “Work” close together! Bought a frisbee now and am ready to challenge Lotte next week haha ❤

1 banana, handful pineapple chunks, handful frozen berries, hot water (to defrost) topped with cacao, orange, pineapple, walnuts,coconut and berries!

This was my breakfast, smoothie bowls (and any kind of bowls) are just so photogenic! Apropos photos… there may or may not be new ethical clothing outfit pictures up here shortly! ❤

 

SUGAR(free)BABE

P1290790xxx

Awesome yet so simple lunch! Boiled potatoes with Mango-Papaya-Curry paste and “egg-salt” (Kala Namak salt), cherry tomatoes and fresh parsley! Many carbs, low fat. Reminder to myself: decrease bad sugar and fat intake! And eat as much as you need – not less, not more! Motivation Saturday haha! Haven’t had cocolate tonight… success! 😀 (I am not saying that one should be restrictive [as long as it’s nutritious food], I just know that sugar is highly addictive and bad fats really do nothing good for your body, so I want to be able to live happily without them 🙂 It’s really just the temptation because “healthy food” is actually 1879725 times better and tastier! 🙂 )

Also I was driving today, first time in Germany since forever! Feels good to overcome such fears (however, rather respect in this case) and to just DO IT! Because in the end you’ll be okay and get more comfortable every second. So in case that any of you guys fears driving a bit… it’s ok. The roads are wide and even. Try driving in Portugal haha! ❤

CHEERS; JULA

PS: Whuuaaa Anna (santigoldblog.com) just manifested meeting a musician (that she loves) personally! Read her story on her blog it’s CraZzzZyy!!!

How to get real

Take a minute and think about that:

it really can make a difference, don’t you think?

Is fear stopping you?

it certainly would, if I wouldn’t stop it from doing so first.I can get really nervous before doing something that I can’t completely control in terms of “what will happen/how will it be/can I do this/…” This happens the most when I am about to try something new. Music classes, group events, or – most frequent – sports. Whilst writing this I kinda realize that it could just be appointments in general which stress me out… mh. Anyways, I’ve always been a sporty kid. Not always by choice, but it played a huge role in my life all along. Strangely, it happens that I am super nervous before a training… even if I know what to expect! But it’s just the mind which tells me “Argh, you must plan, you have to schedule that and then you’re not even sure what will happen – whereas at home (aka comfort zone) everythings so safe and relaxed!”

_1290658Same thing today when Lotte asked me to come along to her frisbee class tonight. Whuat, today?? I was afraid of the circumstances… concerned about if I felt good enough, the weather conditions, my timing… however, I went. And it was great. Exhaustingly great and fricking cold.

_1290654 Not that it was simply freezing, it started to rain and then soft hail, wich really hurt our frozen hands! But we continued, dried a little, got soaked by the rain again and finally ended the training with contentment happiness! I definitely learned (once again)that I can approach new things more relaxed and laid back, because everything will work out fine 🙂

_1290723It’s a while ago that I felt SUCH GRATITUDE for my home and a hot shower, wow! I know guys, it’s uncomfortable to admit, but the comfort zone is so much cozier after leaving it (and then coming back) 🙂 Next we watched Game of Thrones and now I am super done, in a positive way! Looking forward to being productive tomorrow! Night! ❤

It takes courage to do the first action, everything that follows is your reward! The universe takes care of everything and gives you all that is good – if you only take the first step!
