Hello May! A change may just be around the corner (I love puns). April was a tough month for me. Unlike March. But no one can take my smile away from me, so April was a beautiful lesson. So here we go.

Song of the Month

Talking by Elderbrook. To me, it is so empowering. No-one knows that song, but I love to dance to it. It offers a confidence boost for those moments when you feel powerless in the world. And listening to the lyrics isn’t such a bad idea either. Go to my story highlight called MUSIC to see more special songs I love.

Workout of the Month

I have actually gotten into… cardio! Yup. I never thought I would say this myself, but here I am, writing these lines. What cardio have I been doing? Walking on the treadmill: speed 5-6, incline 15. It kills my legs every single time, I love it. Also the weather brought out a craving to go outside and skate again! I live near the Rhine river and skating along the shore just makes me forget about everything for a brief moment.

Favorite Moment of the Month

April has been rough, but there’s been just as many beautiful moments as tough ones. One of them was dancing it out to our favorite Latino music with my friend Mona* and having the most relaxed day with Laura the next day in my hometown Cologne (sleeping in, fair fashion shopping, delicious vegan food, luvluvluv).

Words of the Month

Stand on the rooftops of your worries.

Let today be the day you stand on the rooftops of your worries and know that by grace, through faith, there is freedom to be fearless even though tomorrow is unknown.

More words and inspiration.


Next week, I’ll be in Frankfurt for an exciting event and the launch of something very special – a brand (which I have yet to reveal – watch my stories!) going vegan and eliminating animal-derived ingredients from their products. I couldn’t imagine a better job than promoting a cruelty-free world. I really couldn’t. And soon, I might just be off to a destination I have never been to…

Another thing to look forward to are the Instagram Meet Ups we are hosting this spring and summer! With the first one being this Saturday in Frankfurt, ~1 pm. And you, reading this, are very welcome to come. The meetups we do are potlucks, meaning everybody brings a vegan dish to share and we end up with a feast. But not only the food is special, the people are, too. Social media brings us together and some people I met through Instagram have become the most important people in my life. So don’t let fear stop you from attending one of our meet ups! 🙂 You can choose your city and time:

  • May 5 • Frankfurt, Germany
  • May 19 • Münster, Germany
May 26 • Stuttgart, Germany
  • June 24 • Düsseldorf, Germany
  • July 27 • Salzburg, Austria
  • And hopefully one in Barcelona, Spain 🇪🇸 once I move there.

Are you coming? If you can’t, you’ll virtually attend through my InstaStories, hihi.

I wanna know: What are you looking forward to this month? And how did you spend the first day of May? Leave a comment! Did anyone else dance into the new month? That’s my ritual, and it’s the best way to restart and recharge. Never forget to #DanceItOut. ♥️
