The MOST Effective Weight Loss Recipe!

Hey everybody!
Today I want to show you how you can do a super delicious Stir Fry with rice. This is not only very easy and fast, but also incredibly healthy and thus, also perfect for everyone who wants to get in shape for summer. This is such a basic recipe that I make almost every evening. I hope you enjoy it as I also lost quite a bit of blood while cutting the sweet onions :) 

Stir Fry with Rice (Vegan)

Ingredients (makes 2 large portions)
  • 120g of rice in a cooking bag
  • 1 onion
  • 1 peperoni 
  • handful of various veggies (here I used: sweet onion, sweet corn, broccoli, sugar snaps)
  • soy sauce
  • coriander
  • ginger


 1. Boil the water in a small pot with a bit of salt.

2. Once it starts boiling, put in the rice in the cooking bag. Cook it as long as the package tells you (here 10 min).

3. While the rice is cooking, cut all the vegetables.

4. Add a bit of olive oil in a pan and head it up.

5. Add all the veggies and fry them till they are slightly brown.

  6. Add the cooked rice. Mix it up and flavour it with salt, pepper, soy sauce, ginger and coriander.

And then you are done in about 15 minutes with an incredible delicious meal! For this recipe you can use so many different vegetables, you can add chicken or shrimps, so that it never gets boring.
It is really satisfying and still healthy. So please give it a try and tell me what you think about it!

Have a delicious food day! :)



Little Known Ways to Find Your Skin Undertone

Determining your skin undertone can help you to make the most flattering choices in make up, jewellery and fashion. Choosing the right colours for you, can make your skin, hair and eyes appear to be more shiny, radiant and glowing. There are different, easy techniques to find out which skin undertone you have. 

Skin undertones

The first one is the cool undertone where you have got rather blue, pink or red undertones. Celebrities with a cool undertone are Januars Jones, Scarlett Johansson, Lucy Lu, Anne Hathaway.
The second one is the warm undertone where you have a more yellow or orange undertone. Celebrities with a warm undertone are Nicole Kidman, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston.
The last one is the neural undertone where there's a mix of warm and cool undertoneExamples of celebrities with a neutral undertone: Dita Von Teese, Alyssa Milano, Kelly Clarkson, Victoria Beckham.

The Vein Test

The easiest way to find out your skin undertone ist to look at the colour of your veins. Just look at your veins on the inside of your wrist. If they are more blue, you have a cool undertone. If they are more green, then you have a warm undertone. If you can tell probably ore they are a mix of both, you are a neutral undertone.

White Fabric Test

Pull your hair back in a tight ponytail and out a white towel or T-shirt around your neck and shoulders. If your skin's reflection ist more blue, you have a cool undertone. If your skin looks more yellow, you are a warm undertone and when your skin looks more green, then you are neutral.

Silver/Gold Test

Put on silver and gold jewelleries and have a look which flatters you most. If silver look better one you, you have a cool undergone. If gold looks better on you have a warm undertone. If you think both look good on you, then you might be neutral.

There is also the possibility to determine your undertone by looking at your eye and hair colour, however, I am not a fan of this techniques, as there are so many exceptions in this techniques. For example, I have green eyes (cool), but dark blond hair with a red undertone (warm). This technique only works for a few people.

These were the techniques to find your skin undertone that worked for me. I hope this was helpful. Let me know which undertone you are!

All the best,


How BenjimanTV saved my life

Hello everyone!

How are you? This blog post will be different from my other posts. This will be a personal message to Benji, also known as Benjimantv who is Judy's husband and also has his own youtube channel (Link) and uploads great food pictures on his Instagram account (Link). I am not silly, I know that he probably will never read this, but I really have to thank him. If you want to know why, then keep on reading.

Dear Benji,

firstly, congratulations on birth of your lovely girls Keira and Miya. Also with having your sweet daughter Julianna and the wonderful Judy, you are having such a beautiful family!
You are not only a great father and inspiring considering your regular workout routine, but also an amazing cook. And that's actually the point of this post. You are focusing on cooking healthy with lots of vegetables while keeping it tasty. Additionally, you are combining Japanese food with international recipes. I love the excitement that you put into buying groceries and preparing the recipes and in the end, sharing that all with us.

Because of you, I have rediscovered my passion for healthy cooking, enjoying cooking and actually carrying about what I put into my body.
The thing is that I have a rather hard relationship with food. 4 years ago I became anorexic. The cause were personal problems in school including bullying. It took me a long time to find a way out of this illness and only stopped therapy 1 1/2 years ago. Since then my relationship to food stayed pretty difficult as I swapped between an incredible healthy lifestyle to eating total crap.
It was never that bad that I only ate fast food because I always stayed an athletic person and never wanted to ruin my body totally. However, I stopped carrying about food, I didn't enjoy eating and didn't want to eat any veggies explicitly.
You not only pushed myself back into my old fitness level, but also revived the conscience of eating healthy and actually carrying about what I put into my body. I am also not talking about a temporary change as I already changed my whole eating habits for one month now and I am not even thinking about changing this any soon. As everyone says, fitness and health is made in the kitchen and I can totally confirm this.
So thank you so so much, Benji! By sharing your healthy and tasty recipes with the world, you have changed my life completely. You helped me to come back on track and to actually build up a healthy relationship to food.
Thank you very much for this!!!

All the best,

5 Drugstore Products That You Need to Have

Hey everyone!

How are you?
I hope you are doing well. I am come right from a fantastic jog which I can totally recommend in order to boost your mood. Today I want to tell you my five favourite drugstore products, that you need to have. I tried to pick international makeup brands so that you can purchase these amazing products almost everywhere.

Product № 1

My first recommendation is the Soft Sensation Lipcolor Butter Ultra Vibrant Color by Astor (Link). This is a dupe to the hyped Chubby Sticks by Clinique. They cost instead of 20€ only 6,50€. All colour are very rich and long lasting while still giving the lips moisture and not drying them out. 

Product № 2 

Next comes the NYX Powder Blush in "Mocha" (Link). I added it to the drugstore section because I don't think that it is an high-end brand even though you can't buy it in the drugstore here in Germany. The shade "Mocha" is a soft mid-rose colour which works especially good on pale to medium-pale skin. It is not that highly pigmented, but this makes the application much easier and makes the look really natural. 

Product № 3

My absolute favourite product ever is the Essence I love Extreme Volume Mascara (Link)! I think this is one of the cheapest mascaras that you can get in drugstores. It only costs 2,75€ and is the best mascara I have ever used. It gives amazing voluminous, thigh and long lashes - a total all rounder!

Product № 4

I love the Catrice Camouflage Cream (Link). In Germany, there hardly existed any camouflage that wasn't totally overpriced. Catrice's Camouflage is a great cheap version to the Mac Concealer. It has more coverage than a regular concealer without creasing or making these dry patches around a pimples. Seriously, since I am using this on top of my foundation, everyone thinks that I have super clear skin. 

Product № 5

The last product is the Essence Eyebrow Stylist Set (Link). I am sorry for the bad condition, but as you can see, this product is well used. It includes a small brush with whom you can define blond to brown eyebrows. I am not sure whether you can purchase this in every country, however, if you are able to get in anywhere, please give it a try. 

These were my 5 drugstore products that you need to have. These are really products that I use on a daily basis, so you can definitely be sure that these products are the best out of my collection. I hope they work as good as they work for me. 
Do you know one of these products?

I wish you a wonderful day!



A big surprise and a massive comeback

Hello everyone!

Who has ever thought that I would sit here and write a blog post for you after such a long time?
I am really sorry for those of you that have been waiting for another post and I am also really grateful for all my lovely readers that kept on following me.

So why did I take this ridiculous long break?
My last post was in October. Since summer I had a lot of problems in my life: my heart was broken, I moved in my first own flat, I began studying for the first time and therefore, had to find new friends. Combined with emotional problems and a total confusion in my head, my struggle was complete.
I hope, you respect that I don't want to go too much into detail and you still can't accept that because I had so much in my head, I couldn't find a rational, clear moment to write the blog. Also I really wanted to enjoy writing a post and not being supposed to forced myself to do it.

Two days ago, I looked in my blog and was so amazed by all your lovely comments and that you really enjoy reading what I am writing. Finally, I found my love for my blog again, the passion for writing the blog, taking the photos and being creative.

So here I am back with loads of ideas. I am fully motivated to write great blog posts for you and I hope so are you :)

Again, I hope that you can understand the break that my body just needed.

I wish you an amazing day!



Chickpea Feta Salad


Hello guys!

How are you? I try to keep up a healthy diet, however, during the last days I happened to have a few cheat meals. Thus, I thought it would be a great idea to soften my guilty feelings by preparing a healthy chickpea feta salad with bell pepper and lemon grass. This is a great protein and carb source based on legumes. So let's have a look:

Chickpea Feta Salad
makes 2 big servings

■ 250g chickpeas
■ 1 bell pepper
■ 200g feta
■ dressing: lemon grass, pepper, salt, oil, balsamico, herbs

This salad can be prepared incredibly fast, so there is no excuse why you shouldn't eat healthy after a stressful working day. I really like the taste between the chickpeas in combination with the feta and especially the lemon grass. I am currently really in love with lemon grass! 

I hope you liked this recipe. Let me know whether you liked it and tell me whether you also have a favourite food or spice currently?

Wish you a wonderful day!
