DIY OAT MILK / TWO WAYS

8:39 PM It's no secret...I talked about it a lot on the blog. I said good-bye to dairy. Nothing bad, I still don't regret it! I only miss my milkshakes... The only frustrating thing that I face too many times is the struggle of milk shopping. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of op…

DEAR CAPE TOWN VIDEO #CAPETOWNFEELS

11:58 AM It feels good to close chapters, even though it's hard sometimes. I wanted to talk about Cape Town forever, you might have noticed it... Fact is this place is really beautiful and still super exotic to me, so I wanted to share the tiniest things I experienced.
I prepared myself well …

#TREATINGMYSELF: ROSE CORNER CAFÉ, CAPE TOWN

6:07 PM This post feels special to me. It really is.  I was so excited to share this special place with you...it's actually my last post about Cape Town (before I share the video with you). I had a lot to share, a lot to talk about, and a lot to just swallow down - the blog helped me a lot to e…

SNACK TIME | TESTED: JUSTIN'S

12:05 PM Time to swell in delicious food fantasies... I am still caught up in this weird jetlag thing and all of a sudden spring left us...It's Monday. Maybe I should just stay a bit longer in bed? 
Being back from New York is always a weird feeling. I had the best food and treated myself beyon…

EARTH DAY: HOW TO START CARING

2:18 PM What a lovely day to celebrate Mother Earth today! I just got back from New York,  fighting with this horrible jetlag, but I don't want to miss one day of this awesome spring we are experiencing here in Germany! For Earth Day (which should be every day!) my sister and I decided to swea…

TALKING CAPE TOWN: LONG & LOOP STREET GUIDE

8:57 PM Thinking about Africa, one imagines the distances between the cities and the real size of the continent. Africa is huge, man, but on the map, I though that Cape Town has something of a village, but not a big city or such. See how naive I was...when I arrived, I realized again that Africa is…

EVERYTHING BUT THE BAGEL CHALLAH BUNS

1:26 PM With spring being here now, I took the chance to clean the house a little bit. Spring cleaning is always a pain in the butt, but somehow I love saying good-bye to all the unimportant and old things - making room for new stuff or just enjoying extra space. My kitchen cabinet seems to be gett…

#TREATINGMYSELF: UNFRAMED ICE-CREAM, CAPE TOWN

7:38 PM While getting ready for Africa, my first exciting thing I did was researching food places! I read that South Africa is a bbq nation, so I invested some extra time to find all the cool places I really needed to see (and taste). I can't have bbq all day, so I prepared a list of spots whic…

WORKING OUT WITH OLD NAVY

4:11 PM In my post #alldemlabels I talked about our society being victims of all the shiny things which are screaming label names...I know I know. I am one of these people, too! I celebrate adidas everytime they drop something and I love Nike for creating awesome running shoes all the time - but th…

BO-KAAP IS MY HAPPY PLACE!

12:43 PM I am so happy to be finally sharing this post with you! It's nothing special actually...maybe another fresh image of me...not hiding or such...just enjoying life in Africa. Hi again! Meet my favorite corner of Cape Town - Bo-Kaap. I fell in love with this neighborhood! Up the hills, hig…

DON'T WASTE YOUR FOOD!

7:24 PM During my research of plastic free supermarkets or alternative ideas for a healthier grocery trip, I found a lot of critic on food waste. Something which I noticed from myself as well...but I never really knew how to take care of that! 
I am happy to live in a country where it's normal …

MEDITATING ON CLOUD 17 #INMYCALVINS

3:52 PM Right now I am getting ready for my next trip...home is calling! I can't wait to be back in New York, but there's so much stuff I need to organize right now...this is the perfect moment to sit down and turn everything off. Putting my phone away, my laptop - anything. Time to slow do…

DIY REUSABLE FOOD WRAPPING MADE OF BEESWAX

9:38 AM Before starting my fight against the plastic and ocean pollution, I was actually doubting if I could do all of this. Being new to this, I asked myself a thousand questions and I had zero answers which didn't calm me down. I was lazy and naive then and said to myself that I'm maybe n…

RECREATIONAL SPOTS IN CAPE TOWN

1:52 PM One reason why I love running is the fact to spend more time outside! Where I live, all my running routes happen to be surrounded by nature and a lot of green! A spa for my soul and lungs, haha. No matter how stressed I am, as soon as I find myself in between trees and bushes, I feel comfor…

#TREATINGMYSELF: NY SLICE PIZZA, CAPE TOWN

8:31 PM Going to Cape Town meant for me to try all the crazy and exotic things Africa has to offer. I got my favorite food, but I love exploring anything new! In South Africa, I ate the craziest stuff and I reconnected with flavor and seasoning in general. One day, I had to admit, that New York is …

CONSCIOUS SHOPPING WITH REWE (FOR MY GERMAN READERS)

3:34 PMToday’s post will be published in German only, since I am writing about a supermarket which is located in Germany, and therefor this post is mostly a little educational note for my German lovebirds! As an ocean ambassador, I try to exclude as much plastic as I can, because we really don’t n…
