How to do fashion photography when you're on a budget

"How can I start blogging without investing too much?"

With all the people saying bloggers are talent free people who are just trying to avoid having a real job and getting up at 7 am, it is easy to believe that blogging is not that hard. If you are a blogger yourself or someone who actually thought about all the work going into creating content you know it better. When I started blogging about 8 years ago (feeling pretty old here) all I did was snapping a quick pic with my Sony Ericsson mobile (feeling even older now) and write a few sentences about my day or describing what I was wearing in the photo. Nowadays the blogging industry is way more professional. But if you want to get started now, a big question - if you are not one of the happy ones where money is no problem - is popping up: How can I start blogging without investing too much?


The Apple vs. Samsung struggle

We all know about the constant fight about which brand you support when it comes to mobile phones.  Or technical stuff in general. Scrolling through my Instagram feed I certainly feel like the fight is over and apple won. But when I talk to my friends and family I get mixed reviews. My Dad works as a computer scientist and doesn't like Apple at all. As soon as he got an iPhone as a work phone his complains started. He doesn't like that you can't program the thing as you want. Which is obviously a problem only computer scientist would have. Also the fact he is not able to get the battery out or expand storage with an additional micro SD card is a no-go for him. My best friend on the other side is absolutely in love with her iPhone 8 plus. It's the only thing she loves more than me I think (no jealousy here). And I have to admit I really like the design and I have always been a fan of big mobiles. Also the portrait mode is GOALS. You can see it in full action in my last three posts.


Why I am a feminist and still watch "The Bachelor"

Some things in life are a match made in heaven. Like strawberries and ice cream, Eminem and Ed Sheeran or my baker boy hat and my Pochette Métis. But being a feminist and watching "The Bachelor" is definitely none. But here I am and I bet I'm not the only one. I love watching "The Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" of course. But how could a young woman, who wants sexism and discrimination to end, be into a tv show which is basically about degrading women (and men as well) to sex objects and presenting them in the worst way possible?


Why I hate New Year's Resolutions

I hate New Year's Resolutions. 

Don't get me wrong, I am happy for anyone making plans and setting themselves goals, but I just do not understand, why everyone needs to wait for a new year to do so. You can make resolutions every month, week or day. You can set yourself goals whenever you want. So instead of thinking about resolutions on New Year's Eve, I have my goals set up all the time. But because it always feels like a new start for many people (and I get that, too), I wanted to share my goals for the next months with you. Maybe it helps you get motivated as well.


My Highlights of 2017: What I learned and regretted

Welcome to the obligatory blog post about my 2017. Everywhere bloggers are sipping their Starbucks and getting their highlights of the last year ready to be up just in time for the new year. As I am no exception at all (Am I special for not drinking Starbucks though?) here is my personal review of 2017. I have to say it was a tough year for me. But I somehow managed to accomplish a lot of really great things and stayed happy throughout everything. I find it quite motivational to read how others experienced their year and what they learned or regretted, so I decided to give you little overview of my 2017.
