Has Body Positivity Gone Mainstream? Are You Ready To Love Your Body?


When I was growing up, body positivity and acceptance were no where to be seen. Women’s magazines were filled with models that all looked the same: Caucasian, skinny and bored. That was the standard of beauty in the 90s’ and I didn’t fit in. I began to believe that if I had to change myself to be happy. I ended up with an eating disorder, skin whitening cream, and acne breakouts.

Jump forward 25 years to meet Winnie Harlow or Ashley Graham in the cover of Vogue magazine.

Accepting yourself the way you are is one thing. Find your size and dress fashionably is another. That’s when Happy Size comes handy. This fashion label has been designing modern and stylish clothes for men and women of any size for twenty years. For this fall I picked these skinny black jeans and long-sleeve stripe t-shirt. Parisian chic that is not only stylish but comfortable and will look great with high boots and heels.

Do You Feel Too Small To Have An Impact?


I spend a lot of my time and energy on creating content. Whether it’s writing blog posts, editing videos and photos, connecting on social media or looking for the right place for a shooting. I learned that creativity helps me being present and feel meaningful. In the past, I wondered if I could really have an impact. Now, having an impact and feeling meaningful are sensitive terms. Pronounce it out loud and people will think that you don’t appreciate having a healthy child and an amazing husband. That’s not that at all.

I am talking about following my inner intuition and doing things for myself, not for other people. As women and mothers, we tend to forget about ourselves. We take care of others, we are soft. We put others first. And as amazing as it is, we also need to do things only for ourselves. Being it going for a walk, having a massage, reading a book, educating ourselves, exercising, learning skills that others may not find useful or going on a spiritual retreat.

If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try to go to bed with a mosquito in the room.

Life Is What Happens To You While You’re Busy Making Other Plans


“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”

I got so busy with planning, organizing and stressing about it, that I forgot to enjoy the process. When Alex’s father passed away, I couldn’t stop thinking about life. How short and impermanent it is. And we forget to enjoy every moment. We stress about where we want to be, who we want to become and what we want to have, that life runs through our fingers and when we wake up, it’s late. Life is all about memories. Now, when I start stressing about something, I ask myself: “Am I going to think about it when I am dying?” And 100% of the time the answer is NO! I will not think about work deadlines and power games. In the last seconds, before I die, I will think about my family and the love I felt towards those who matter. SO as much somber as it may seem, it’s an exercise that helps me to keep perspective.

Knitting Against Forgetting // Tricotons Contre l’Oubli Avec Pro Senectute


Knitting Against Forgetting:

When I found out that Pro Senectute is launching a new campaign to raise awareness about dementia (and all versions of thereof), I knew I had to support it. My grandmother has suffered from dementia for years and my father-in-law, who passed away a few weeks ago, did too. There are 148,000 people in Switzerland that suffer from dementia and oftentimes, they go unnoticed.
