Ready for my close up! #frameyourbeauty
Ever since smartphones came equipped with cameras that face not just outward but also backward the selfie trend has exploded. But for me, I have been “doing” selfies as from the moment I had my first camera (1983). It all started with a high dose of curiosity; how does my body look like? Making a picture for me meant framing a particular part of my body and giving it extra attention. I discovered that I was able to make unnoted parts of my body very beautiful, just by framing them. My selfie fanatism didn’t just come with the rise of the smartphone, it comes from a genuine desire to explore my body, believing that your body is the greatest natural canvas.
Still, It is often argued that selfies reinforce the idea that what matters most in this world is how things, and people, look. It frames a beautiful part of myself that I feel secure about
I dare you to explore what the game of revealing and unveiling can do for you. Start loving your own body and make all parts loveable by framing them. Various effects like lighting, angles, and filters can even trigger the artist in you. Dare to watch yourself, even the parts which you might feel a little bit intimidated with. But framing your beauty will help you embrace who you are and how you look. I believe you are creating your own definition of beauty, embracing your flaws and challenging social norms.
Coming home for xmas
Confession: I am a total Xmas fanatic. I LIVE for the holiday season. While my usual taste can best be described as austere and intellectual, come Christmas, I’m into kitsch. Big time. Bring on the glitter, the glühwein and the sentimental songs!

Embrace your dark side – get inspired for Halloween
Imagine if there were a night where it would be socially acceptable to indulge your deepest darkest dreams. An annual opportunity for women to dress like their sexual fantasies – be it a blood-thirsty vampire or a flirtatious nun – without getting ‘slut shamed’. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well there is a night just like that, and it happens to be one of my favorite moments of the year: Halloween.
