Blogger_LU


#blogger_LU
Even though it's just a hashtag it has been determining my everyday life for the past few months. Because in fact it is not just a hashtag but it is also a group, a community and a fanpage and has a long story behind it. As I've been mentioning it like a thousand times I will keep the story short: I wanted to have an active blogger community in Luxembourg, I met up with Anouk and she agreed, we founded the Facebook group Blogger_LU which now also has a belonging fanpage and we have since then been organising monthly meetings which allowed me to get to know some of the cutest people around Luxembourg. Obviously it wasn't as easy as this. We needed to find members which at the beginning wasn't as easy at it is now (because meanwhile the new members find us). Also we are a group of really different people and I feel like everybody has a different idea of what blogging and the blogger community in Luxembourg should be like. So being the one who had the idea for the group I've always felt responsible for what's going on in there, which literally gave me some sleepless nights, even though some people may not understand why. Nonetheless my chief aim was always to fight for the respect bloggers in Luxembourg deserve and I feel like today we've reached one of many milestones:

Cooking Made Easy: Vegan Hot Chocolate

vegan hot chocolate healthy low calorie almond milk

I must admit that the combination of the Holiday season and my exams nearing doesn't make me the healthiest person on earth. Well actually this is a huge understatement 'cause the truth is that I really can't stay away from chocolate, cookies and co. Ooops... But that doesn't keep me from eating lots of fruits and veggies every day and it also doesn't keep me from trying healthier alternatives like this vegan almond milk. At first I was a bit skeptical but if you manage to find the right balance between all ingredients you'll end up with a hot chocolate that tastes too good to be healthy!

XL Fall/Winter Scarves


Yesterday when I was rushing to my car in my workout clothes to drive to my workout session I had to admit it to myself: It has been getting damn cold over the last few days! So girls, it's time to pull out your beloved oversize scarves. I bought mine at H&M last year and I love the combination of beige, rose and neon pink. Only bad thing: All of my coats are grey so they don't really match my scarf. Time to get a new coat I guess... In case you haven't found the perfect oversized scarf yet you can get inspired by my little selection. Oh and do you know what's my favourite way to wear scarves at the moment? Just wrapped around the shoulders and then tied with a belt in the waist area. This gets you a super cosy and elegant look!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... Time to think about presents for your beloved ones! In fact in Luxembourg we don't have this Christmas stocking tradition but therefor on December 6th we get something from Santa Claus into our boots if we put them outside the front door. So whether you use these present ideas to fill stockings, boots or an Advent calendar, I'm sure your mum, sister or best friend will adore them! (I certainly would...)
