Desire – so light and poetic, slightly melancholic and yet full of passion. Who’s speaking of desire seems like they’ve seen everything there is in life – lived a hundred lives – a traveler that’s home to nowhere with endless stories to tell. Who’s speaking of desire has friends everywhere and eats the most exotic meals, has tanned skin and salt in their hair. Who’s speaking of desire sits in a rocking chair on the veranda and sparks the flame of wanderlust in the innocent hearts of their countless grandchildren.

But I have desire.

I got taken aback by the coldness of reality. Germany – the land of poets and thinkers, and nobody seemed to find a better word for this feeling? Sehnsucht. The literal addiction of longing. An addiction? And I have this Sehnsucht. The desire – but nothing about it is light and poetic. I dream of living a hundred lives, yet I don’t make the most of the one I already have. It feels like walking on the spot. The years pass by and although you stumble restlessly around, you don’t seem to have moved, to have changed. Everything is pushed to “later”.

“Well this? This is just a temporary job. Well, actually it’s not the best major to study one could wish for, but it’s only for three years.” And suddenly you notice how you’re suffering through it, being expected to bring your best but only giving the average. We let the years walk by, yet we want to see us march. Confident and with a straight step towards DREAM.

But isn’t the way the goal? And any way we walk it its highest quality? Is our way less valuable if we stumble or stand still, without regret to have missed something, just to watch the flowers at the corner of the sidewalk? Are we actually capable of enjoying one thing, without the fear of missing out on the other? Though we chase the feeling of “perhaps missing out on something”? Are we taken aback by being overwhelmed? That the Better and Prettier of others are constantly standing against our own happiness? Fact is, that the own life with its hard but beautiful sides doesn’t stand a chance against the instgramfilters.

Taking mean screenshots of stupid pick-up lines, but not having the courage to talk to that sweet guy on the tram. Is it the subconscious that tells us that there could always be something else around the corner? And when paths cross you’re hesitant because there could also be something better. And who the heck tells me what “the better” is? Because I have this desire anywhere, at any time. Sure, I’m comfortable here, but what if I could feel even more at home somewhere else? And where is this somewhere? Where is the grass greener, and can I catch a glimpse on it from the couch, if only to see if it’s worth getting up and on the way?

I thrive on this desire, every wind blow moans into my ear that I “should do something of my life – do something meaningful – that makes you happy as well”.

This desire is chasing, faster and faster. It robs my sleep and poisons my mind. It’s a deceptive companion, shoving that inner watch in your face whilst taking valuable time from you. I run, I haste and yet- yet I have the feeling of standing still. Of waiting.
So while my inner self is running for its life, chasing the sense of life. I’m waiting. For something better to come around. But please tell me the secret of how this is supposed to work? One running around, headless and the other waiting naively.

And now I understand. Desire is an addiction, it poisons the heart and fogs the mind, if we taste too much of it. Yet it pushes me. It is a welcomed friend, to share laughter and tears with, to get advice from, even if wrapped a little harshly. Advice that I tend to understand when it’s too late, yet right on time. It’s a compass that can only lead you if you know your aim, though this won’t be the North for most of us. And even if I wished for this friend to leave, to stop pressuring me and to stop laying on my chest. I am happy every time she takes my hand and shows me that desire is worth it. It’s worth it to follow her because – even if it’s not always easy to stand still, to put your luck into other’s hands and wait for something better – it gets you closer to your goal.

I have a new word for desire – a good, true friend. A piece of me that only wants the best. That pushes me, not chasing me, though I need to understand this more.

I hug you, my loyal friend and companion.

Amely Rose german fashionblogger in Bonn between the cherryblossom – fashioneditorial – spring outfit - kirschblüten altstadt Amely Rose german fashionblogger in Bonn between the cherryblossom – fashioneditorial – spring outfit - kirschblüten altstadtAll blogs post the same… good, that I am no blogger.

Well, I have a blog – and Instagram. And yes, I mention it like once or twice in any conversation. Perhaps I choose the most instagrammable food when I order something at a restaurant, and I might be guilty of arranging the table set up to match the aesthetic. Okay, I’ve moved entire tables every now and then – to an entirely different restaurant – at the other end of the city – because the table cloth fits the wall color. And yeeaaah, I might have brought along my own food – disgusting to taste, but fantastic to look at. Because lets be real, a messy, greasy kebap probably doesn’t get me to a thousand likes.

But to make things clear, You Only Live Online.
I’m living so online, that my latest Instagram post looks more similar to the 23485930572 other #fashionistas and #influencers, than my own reflection in the mirror. I’m living so online, that I double tap the beautiful sweater of the next to me on the train, waiting for the tags to pop up and buy it right ahead. I’m living so online, that a voice in my head started developing, correcting myself that “that’s pronounced bal-en-si-AA-guh (Balenciaga)”. I’m so online that I get upset and disappointed when I meet somebody in #reallife and he actually looks like he does in his profile picture. I am so online that I love children so much – until I push them aside to get them out of my shot. I am so online that I only mention something meaningful, if I announced it with #realtalk. I’m living so online that I proudly wear the color of my generation of Millennials. It’s Millennial Pink and if you didn’t know this – somebody show me the door ‘cause I’d like to leave. Or in my time – the “X” in the right corner. I am so online that I’m scared of warning waves, though I’d volunteer to become an unpaid, walking ad pillar and free billboard #notsponsored. I am so Facebook that I have three thousand friends, but celebrate my birthday with no more than two. Me and that annoying voice trying to break the ice with: “it’s pronounced LOO-iVWEE-ton” (Louis Vuitton).

The only thing I admire of reality is it’s high definition, resolution and color depth. Nice graphic card universe, gotta hand it to you. Will Instagram get that upgrade soon or…? I am so snapchat, that sometimes when I wake up I panic and look for my dog ears. I am so online that I don’t tape my webcam. I need the stage, I need the audience – even if it’s just a FBI guy.

All blogs post the same stuff – good god I’m happy that I’m different. That’s why here are some beautiful pictures in front of cherry trees. And guys – you can’t imagine how exhausting it was to photoshop the other bloggers out of them.

Ricarda M, beauty, review, pflegeprodukte, vegane_creme, secrets_of_beauty, Amely_rose,Hello summer!
Hello long evenings outside at sundown.
Hello short dresses and vibrant colors.
Hello sand on the skin and salt in the hair.
And most of all – hello light make up.

When you take a look at the calendar you’ll notice that summer is right around the corner. And following the rising temperature it’s time to shed the layers of textile that cover our bodies. This doesn’t just count for clothes, but also for your skin. By going without heavy make-up that vanishes so quickly, with every drop of sweat. But if you’re into make-up you’ll know the challenge that is “no make-up-make up”. Because besides the expectation, you’ll need a bunch of products to look fresh and natural – all day long. But there’s an easier way to that. The right skin care prevents problems and takes care of anything make-up tries to hide. And that’s why I’ll show you the amazing Secrets of Beauty by Ricarda M.

 

Secret of Beauty
The magic of this line lies in the word “hyaluronan” – at least to some part. Because this range of products is packed with highly efficient ingredients, that work in perfect harmony. Here are my five highlights for your all-inclusive wellness feeling.

Immediate Lifting Effect!
The Anti Aging Boost 24/7 Face Cream is basically like the soft focus Photoshop tool in a 200ml pot. This moisturizer protects the entire 100% of the light spectrum (no matter if UVA, UVB, blue light or infrared) with photoprotector, extracted from the blossoms of the butterfly lilac. This also protects the skin from again and reduced hyper-pigmentation (discolorations like freckles or aging spots) up to 70%. The lotion is the ideal protection from natural and artificial light and shows a significant reduction of wrinkles (about 53% after 2 weeks of regular use and 57,8% after 4 weeks).

Application: You can use the lotion in the morning and in the evening, spread evenly on face, chin and neck.

The clearer of the future!
This guarantees the Skin Refiner Clearing Water, coming in a beautiful 400ml pump bottle. One of the exciting ingredients is the extract of the red clover blossom. It balances the state of your skin and refines the pores (reducing the up to 80% within one month). Another result with regular application lies in matt, glowing and even skin. It also reduces redness and soothes any irritations, to calm the skin. As a highlight, it increases the antioxidant protection by 57%.

Application: You can use the Skin Refiner Clearing Water up to three times per day on your skin.

A true wonder of moisturization!
That’s what the Hydro Boost Dermafiller Serum (60ml) is all about. It works IMMEDIATELY and increases your skins moisture by 91% right after application.

Application: Apply a few drops of the moisture boost in the morning and evening, gently massaging it into the face, chin and neck area. Tip: It works ideally right after your daily skin lotion.

The rEYEvulotion!
A true revolution comes with the Redesign Eye Contour Cream in a 60ml dispenser. The cream improves sustainably the quality of the entire eye area. Plus it reduces wrinkles or crowsfeet visibly! Short things short – the thin, fragile skin around the eyes is getting stronger and younger within only two weeks. The treatment improves the visible youth of the eye contour and builds up the entire substance of your skin.

Application: Gently pat the cream around your eye area.

Stop the Wrinkle!T
he last little helper is the
Special 3D Wrinkle Killer. But don’t worry, it’s not as aggressive as it sounds – and of course not to your skin. He just wants to care. And that’s what the Wrinkle Killer does best, it basically works like natural botox – whilst improving the relaxation of the muscles. It smooths the relief of the skin and fills wrinkles from within, especially around your forehead and eye area. With immediate results!

Application: The Wrinkle Killer can be applied up to three times a day. On the forehead, the eye area and wherever wrinkles are visible.

 

This skin care line is ideal for any skin. Soft, delicate and caring, but with an immediate, visible result. I already recommended the great Vitamin C care range by Ricarda M (you’ll find that here) and just like then, I am absolutely in love with the products. What makes Ricarda M’s products so special is the philosophy behind it that you can feel in anything I just talked about: Highest quality on highest, international, scientific standard.
