And then everything changed

Things have been quiet here on the blog for almost a month. Before you all get mad at me: there’s a good reason. The best reason ever: I had my baby! 

Easy recipe: Carrot Cake

Have you ever had carrot cake? As in, a cake made with carrots? I must confess I had never actually tried it, even though it is a very popular cake! Recently I really wanted to try it, so I did what every savvy person does: I googled a recipe. And since…

Why I don’t have a birth plan

When I first announced my pregnancy, there were two questions everyone asked me. First was how I was dealing with the morning sickness. The second question was if I already had a birth plan. Because apparently, every woman has a birth plan set in place even before they get pregnant. Kinda like…

What will happen to Curvy Life Stories?

EDIT: I pre-wrote this post, with the intent of publishing it before the baby arrived. However, as I already shared on my Instagram, baby decided to come early on the 23rd of February.   I’ve been blogging for a decade now, consistently over 6 years and on this blog since 2011.…

Stop asking me if I plan on breastfeeding

And stop trying to convince me to do, by listing all reasons why I have to be a part of the breastfeeding club when I tell you I don’t know if I will.  Breastfeeding, like tattoos or choosing to color your hair, is something very personal. When did it become OK to…

Coffee shops in Linz: Die Brüher

I have been living in Linz for almost 3 years now. And in this time I have tried my fair share of restaurants and coffee places in town. But there was one place still on my list: Die Brüher. A coffeehouse specialized in, you guessed it, coffee! They offer a variety…

Fibromyalgia – what it is and how to deal with it

As some of you may know, I suffer from a chronic autoimmune disease called Fibromyalgia. I haven’t written much about it because I wanted this to be a happy and positive space. But life isn’t always positive (or happy) and I have gotten some requests to write more about the…

Gender reveal: what are we having?

I must confess, I totally forgot about telling you guys what the gender of our baby is! We found out at around 18/19 weeks and, naturally, wanted to tell our family and friends first. Somehow, it ended up slipping my mind and I ended up never saying it here or…

Are all vegans pushy and judgmental?

I am not a vegan, I’m not even a vegetarian, even though I do follow a mostly vegetarian diet. But I have vegan friends and I also know some very nice people who are vegan. Just like I know some very judgmental people who are vegan.  However, I have been…
