Julia and her passion for sewing

with No Comments

Julia has a very special passion for fashion. She sews all her cloths herself. It all started when she was a little girl and she picked it back up a few years ago, because it was so much fun to her. By now, it’s not just fun but also an expression of sustainability and avoiding exploitation of sewers in the fashion industry.

Authentic blogging

Blogging is supposed to be fun. And hopefully not just for a while, but for all times to come. What does it mean, to be under pressure? It’s important to stay as authentic as a blogger as you were in the beginning, even if it’s hard.

It’s hard to believe. But sometimes, your life can change in one single day. That’s exactly what happened to me last week, at least to my understanding and handling of fashion. Sometimes it only takes one 90 minutes film about Fast Fashion and Fair Fashion that changes you a whole lot…

“Difret” and girls in Ethiopia

A lot of people have heard of the female genital mutilation and the problems that follow.

This traditional custom happens in many places on earth, for example in Ethiopia.

With the publication of “Difret”, this cruel happening is making it’s way into the movie theaters and spreading awareness.

3 weeks through New Zealand

In 3 weeks we made it around the southern island of New Zealand. Not a too busy schedule through the rainforest, driving by beaches one can dream of, seeing mighty glaciers and feeling the soft sand while you jump into the ocean.

New Zealand is covered with nature beauties. And if you don’t spend too much time thinking about all the tourists (especially on the west coast), you can really enjoy the silence of the country.

Nun ist es nicht einmal mehr eine Woche, bis ich gemeinsam mit Philipp in den Flieger nach Afrika steigen werde.
Ich hatte mir zu Beginn immer gedacht, dass es sich ja “nur mal wieder um einen Besuch in Afrika” handelt. Aber so langsam realisiere auch ich, dass wir tatsächlich 6 Monate weg sein werden.
