Eating watermelon!

June flew by for me. So quickly that blogging took a seat on the back burner 😅 I won’t lie, I was lacking creativity, inspiration, and motivation. But I am SO close to being done with my semester and have tons of ideas floating around in my head for you, so just wait…

Lately, I have been loving…


Dresses, skirts, sandals galore! June was a hot one here in southern Germany and the only way to attempt to combat the heat was avoiding clothes that were tight or uncomfortable. My all time favorite outfit of the month definitely has to be this dress from Espirit with these sandals from Paul Green.

I also could not be bothered painting my nails this month, so I rocked the Au Naturale look!


By participating in Shaun Week and following his hybrid calendar for the month! Kicking off on June 12th, Beachbody released a new workout every day for a week that Shaun T recently created. I hosted a free group and we did the workouts together every day and had so much fun! Shaun T then created a calendar to follow for 3 more weeks mixing and matching workouts from all of his previous programs 💪🏼


My Contigo water bottle! With such hot weather, water was a must 💦 I have the Cortland 24 ounce/720 milliliter bottle and LOVE it. One, it does not leak! Two, it is the perfect size – the portion of water is ideal, but it also fits into cup holders. Three, it is dishwasher safe! Four (and my favorite part), is the lid! It has an automatic seal to prevent spillage, but you can also lock it so that in transport you won’t have any accidents. The lid also has a handy carabiner that enables me to clip it onto any bag.

I have never had a water bottle last me this long (mine is 2 years old in the meantime). They have always ended up leaking or becoming nasty and uncleanable.


Still No Excuses! by Brian Tracy! I also added You are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero into the mix and am on the hunt for a third book to read throughout July! School definitely took over my life a bit and I pushed my reading to the side, BUT I will be reading lots as soon as my last assignment is handed in 🤗


New opportunities. As summer approaches I am excited to take advantage of all of the opportunities that it has to offer. I have a lot of ideas that I would like to bring to fruition, but I also am starting a new job in a little bit and am looking forward to seeing what kind of things I will experience! I feel like I repeat myself constantly, but I just am grateful to have found a spot in life where I am excited to start every day and chase things that I am passionate about!

  1. June 6. It was an average Tuesday and my mom and I decided to go for a walk to hit our step goals for the day. Little did we know that the most beautiful rainbow would accompany us the whole way! 🌈
  2. June 14. After a seemingly successful job interview, the stars aligned and my parents and I were able to meet up in the midst of a busy day for ice cream! It was so random but fun! 🍦
  3. June 15. It was a German holiday and the local orchestra, that my dad plays in, uses it to put on a little event for the day. No German festival is complete without potato salad, french fries, brats, and beer! My dad and I joined forces and did what we can do best, eat! 😋
  4. June 21. My final presentation for the project that seemingly overshadowed everything this semester! It was great to get that out of the way and move onto more pressing things. 📚
  5. June 27. Not only was it Tobi, my dogs, 14th birthday, but I finally got a job offer! After a long and annoying search, I finally got an offer and look forward to starting later this month! 👩🏼‍💻

I hope that June treated you all as well as it did me! I look forward to the memories that I will make in July 😌

With love,

Lena Marie 💕
