Meine Lieben, ich war mal wieder faul. Darum habe ich die Arbeit jemand anderen machen lassen, hehe. Nein, Spaß beiseite. Aber ich hab tatsächlich einen Gastartikel für euch über 5 ideale Snackvarianten für den Winter. Schmökert mal durch und vielleicht bleibt das Eine oder Andere ja hängen und ihr habt es im Kopf, wenn ihr das nächste Mal Nachmittagshunger verspürt und eine Kleinigkeit zu snacken braucht!

Refreshing-christmassy DIY-Body-Peeling. Lavender, Orange & Lemon.

diy-body-peeling (1)
The past weeks it has become a bit quiet over here on the blog and on my social media channels – in contrast to my daily life, to be honest. I guess I have to balance this out, so a lot of things (or also: too many) things going on in life, balanced out a bit by keeping the blog and social media more quiet. Or whatever. Somehow, it’s a pity, but I think I couldn’t handle being fully active and attentive in both areas right now. As soon as life is becoming calmer again, I will have more head and time for the blog project again, for sure! But better posting little than nothing, right?
Right before Christmas I’m sharing a DIY-post for natural body care with you, presenting an idea for a sustainable, homemade Christmas gift. I’m a huge fan of body brushes and peelings and love experimenting with these things. This time, I combined citrus and lavender and that smells amazingly good! I hope you’ll having fun trying this out!

Balancing DIY Massage Oil.

Soon it’s already November. For me, this is the first month of winter. I know a bunch of people who don’t really like the cold season. I’m definitely not counting myself to them. I have to say, that I like every season almost equally. I’m really looking forward to that feeling of retreat, calmness and inner warmth now that I’m strongly associating with winter. A part of this is taking time for yourself. Of course, this is something one should enhance all year around. Still, as I associate it with winter in particular, I’m now posting a DIY recipe for a balancing massage oil. You won’t need a lot of ingredients and it’s prepared easily and quickly.

Last week I tried one further way of fasting: souping.
Until then I had only tried alkaline dieting and juicing. As the intermediate season like between autumn and winter is really suitable for doing a cleanse, I decided to do one again, but in another way. Read here how souping works, how I felt during these days and what foods and drinks I had.

Zurück aus der Sommerpause. Endlich. Und ich muss sagen, ich habe sie genossen. So sehr ich das Bloggen auch mag, hin und wieder braucht es eine Pause. Ich nehme mal an, das verhält sich bei fast allen Dingen so. Urlaub muss einfach sein.
Dafür starte ich in diesen neuen Herbst mit etwas ganz Großartigem für euch: mit einem Gewinnspiel! Weiterlesen und mitmachen lohnt sich also!

Eco and Minimalistic Travels. A Try.

lifestyle-travels-minimal-eco (5)
Der Zero Waste bzw. Nachhaltigkeits-Vorsatz begleitet mich nicht nur daheim durch den Tag oder am Weg von meiner Wohnung zur Uni. Überlegungen dazu reichen definitiv weiter; diesmal bis rüber ins Himalaya-Vorland und zum Indischen Ozean. Das ist ein schönes Stück, das nicht so ohne weiteres und ohne Konsequenzen zurückgelegt werden kann. Wie man so eine Reise ein bisschen mehr im Sinne von ökologischem Bewusstsein gestalten kann, dazu gibt’s hier ein paar Überlegungen.
Spoiler: What’s in my bag?!?

The best Good-Night-Drink

food-good-night-drink (5)
Who knows it from his/her childhood: not being able to sleep and then a cup of hot milk with honey makes everything better? I had this often when I was a kid. Now I found an even better hot drink, that is vegan and better for you concerning TCM. Here’s the recipe!
(Especially in times I’m really busy this drink helps me to calm down – it really does wonders!)
