Fashion inspired by BBC Merlin

Hi guys,

since discovering Polyvore I have been enjoying it so much. I also just started my holidays so I have a lot of time on my hands.

Merlin is the story of the legendary wizard when he arrives in Camelot. Right after arriving he finds out that his and Arthurs fates are intwined and that he must help this arrogant prince become the future legend.

The show has a good twist on this classic story and is actually really funny at times. It has 5 seasons and is definitely something to look into.

If you want more information on the post just click on the picture and follow it to Polyvore.

Please enjoy:

Supersize vs. Superskinny

Hi guys,

serious post today! As you probably have noticed the whole media is really corrupt with skinny sized models and photoshop . But I think that the media has gone a step to far in the past few years.

It all pretty much started with the introduction of the first real plus-size supermodel. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing that they are stepping away from the super-skinny image, but they are pretty much leaving an extreme for the next extreme method.

Why are we advertising, especially to teens, that being obese is ok? Because it’s not.

It all comes down to balance, which you can only achieve with exercise and healthy diet.

Here’s why we have to get away from these extremes:

– Super-Skinny

skinny

  • You don’t get enough minerals and vitamins so you have a weakened immune system and are more vurnable to colds and the flu.
  • if you don’t get enough calcium it can weaken your bones so you can more easily get a fracture.
  • too little iron- get ready to be tired ALL the time
  • your menstrual cycle could fall out and if this happens for too long it could be impossible for you to have kids
  • if worst comes to worst your body might start eating it’s own organs and you could lose your hair and teeth.

– Obese

obese

  • Let’s just say the prospects aren’t necessarily better because you can get diabetes and you’ll have to live with it for the rest of your life.
  • you could be more prone to high blood pressure and raise your chances of a heart attack
  • again here you could have problems with your bones because your frame will have to carry your weight
  • getting pregnant might not be the problem, but giving birth could be harder.

I hope that this has been insightful. The most important thing is to find a balance and to be happy with who you are.

Lots of love

Winter Break: Bouldering Expidition

Hi guys,

one of the biggest struggles I have during break is to stay active. This means it’s easy for me to lose my routine and I spend hours binge-watching Gossip Girl.

So this break I wanted to get my routine down and be a little bit more active.

A great way is to go bouldering. It’s pretty much rock-climbing, but you don’t climb very high and you don’t have all the ropes to hold you up. It’s a tiny bit more dangerous but don’t worry there are mats everywhere.

So grab your friends and get in shape without it even feeling like exercise.

The Benefits of Motivation Boards<3

Hi guys,

if there’s one thing that fashion bloggers are obsessed with, it’s motivation boards. They help us get stuff done and make us feel like tumblr girls if you know what I mean.

I have more than one actually but you can also choose one option.

The first option is the typical “board”, you can buy a very cheap on at the craft store or you can get a magnetic one on which you can use cute magnets as accessories.

The only downside is that it gets full after a while, but that can also be a benefit because you can find new motivations.

Second option is great for all those studious girls out there that spend a good part of their day at their desk.

Simply get a clear sheet and put your motivations and/or accomplishments underneath it. Don’t feel like studying? Remember that time you had an A+? Suddenly you’ve found a new reason to hit the books.

It’s also a pretty cheap way to have a motivation board and has a double-use because at the same time it’s protecting your desk.

The third option is the electronic one. I use Pinterest, so if you want you can follow me. The electronic one is great because it pretty much takes up no space and you can follow other people and get inspired by them. Like all social networks it connects us and it can be such a positive experience.

There you go guys, those are the 3 options I use, and I promise you they are worth it. They help develop your style, reach your goals and be happy.

Enjoy your Saturday,

Lots of love

Ed Sheeran Concert <3

Hi guys,

my legs are sore and I’ve just finished my 5th cup of coffee, which only means one thing: I was at a concert last night. AND it was awesome. Ed Sheeran is seriously one of the most hard-working guys out there and he deserves the fame.

So sit back and enjoy the pictures.

Ed is such a funny guy and he really got everybody in the mood. Even when he took the Instagram picture, he just kept us jamming.

When he sang his hit single “The A Team” he asked us to put up our phones, so he would see a sea of lights. And as you see in the picture above, the result is breathtaking.

Hope you enjoyed this post.

Fashion On The Go: I Want To See…

Hi guys,

living in Europe is actually pretty great. We have a lot of freedom, and a lot of awesome cities that are pretty close together. This also means a lot of awesome styles that come together on very little space. Additionally each country has amazing and fascinating history.

But like every 17- year old teenager I want to leave home and backpack around the country and expirience amazing things that you only see in romantic comedies. Even though there is probably a fat chance of that happening, a girl can dream. And thats not going to end my travelling dreams.

Because, I Want To See…
