Outdoor in Munich: Eisbach

Before I knew anything else about what to see in Munich I had the Eisbach on top of my list. You probably think „Why is a little stream so interesting?“ Well, since I’m a huge sport enthusiast I know about the Eisbach surfers and really wanted to see them live. Just past the bridge near the Haus der Kunst, the river forms a standing wave about 1 metre high. This makes the perfect surfing wave and therefore attracts quite a few of them. However it is also a really dangerous spot and only experienced surfers should take a ride here. We headed there directly on the first day we arrived since the weather was fantastic and there would actually be some surfers around to watch. When we got there the place was packed with people who also admired the guys on their boards. I could have stayed for ages and just watch them. Now I want to learn surfing even more desperately.

Home Workout Equipment

Some of you may already know that I’m a workout lover and therefore I considered it would be nice to give you a little overview on my equipment I use at home. Starting from left to right resistance band (red) I use this one mainly to do some feet exercise to strengthen my feet. Especially after my foot surgery was this my best workout-buddy Gaynor Minden Flexibility band (pink) It’s always important to stretch and in order to get more flexible I use this flexibility band to increase my side splits as well as working on my arabesque and á la second extensions (dance lovers will know what I’m talking about) light hand weights (pink) I got these from my Mum and try to do little exercise with them mainly in combination with sitting on the stability ball or lying in a bridge position. I don’t want too muscly arms which is why I always stretch after using them and try to do various workout routines Foam roller With the foam roller I want to …

#MCWorkout: Creating Daily Motivation

A few days ago we introduced to you our new section on the blog: #MCWorkout. And here follows the second post. When you are keen on tackling your body shape, you first of all should think about some motivation. Why do you want to this? What is the ambition to go through all those long hours at the gym or any other sport place. Mainly it should be something you do for yourself and your own sense of well-being. And sometimes a dose of inspiration is the right thing to get everything going. At the moment I am absolutely obsessed with Natasha Oakley’s Instagram account and her way of living. She and her best friend, Devin Burgman, are probably living the life everyone is dreaming of. Both stunning, traveling the world and mostly hanging around the luxurious beaches around the world. Besides their jet-set lifestyle they both have an absolutely stunning body. Not too thin and not to bulky, really athletic and curvy. This is why I made them my daily workout inspiration. If you feel tired of working out just look at an …

The Internationalist

During my daily life I am definitely a sneakers girl. I love to walk around comfortably in my Nikes, because they usually are the best option for each weather and situation that may occur. That is also why I decided that I would like to add one really simple pair of Nikes to my selection, that I can wear with every outfit on many occasions. So when I found this pair of black-grey mid high Internationalists online I had to have them. And let me tell you a secret, I even got them a little cheaper than usual with a Cuponation voucher. They are made of a soft material mix of suede and have a rubber sole. Since they are mid height, they feel warm even if the weather is still a little colder. Altogether, one can walk, run, dance or do whatever in those Nikes and one’s feet will never get tired. Sneakers – Nike Sunglasses – Ace&Tate Top – New Look Blazer – H&M Jeans – Noisy May

#MCWorkout: Introduction

This topic has been on our list for a long time and we finally found the courage to pick it up on our blog: it’s time to work out! From time to time we will create some posts which will run under the hashtag #MCWorkout. These will show you our routines, inspire and motivate you. But first things first. We have collected five facts for you which you should always keep in mind. 1. Miracles don’t happen over night Getting in shape is never ever easy and certainly not something that can happen in 24 hours. 2. Every body is different This is also something many people forget about. Some people achieve their goals faster than others. Seems unfaire but it all depends on your own will power. 3. Sport means sweating Yes, get over it. You will sweat and you face will be red. But hey, thats what it always should be like because afterwards you will feel great and full of energy. 4. Treat yourself Everyone eventually needs a break sometimes. This is probably the hardest part for me and sometimes I really …

February Inspiration

„Number one, like yourself. Number two, you have to eat healthy. And number three, you’ve got to squeeze your buns. That’s my formula.“ Richard Simmons With the Super Bowl final just around the corner (taking place tonight) it is the perfect time to pick-up another topic on our blog: Fitness and Workout-routines. It’s been on my mind for a long time now and I’m seriously thinking about giving you a more closer inside look into my daily training and how I like to stay in shape. Shortly before summer is approaching many girls AND boys are getting crazy about achieving the perfect beach body. In my opinion it is important to stay in shape all year round not only because of a changing season. Another thing I noticed is the change of eating habits in our society. People start to think about their daily nutrition and realize that a healthy and well balanced diet is just the right approach to make your mind and body happy. I completely agree to this. The important thing is …
