In the year 2000 I was 16 years old and life sucked. Because I failed maths, I had to repeat a year with a bunch of students I only knew by sight and it was extremely hard for me to get to know new people and habits. I cried for three month until Christmas until I got used to the new situation. Who knew that I would meet my dearest friends in that class and that 17 years after this, my whole circle of friends, would be based on those new friendships. It turns out that I was wrong about a lot of stuff and that things happened differently as I imagined. I made a list of things I would tell my 16-year-old self if I could.
When I first installed Instagram on my phone the app was quite different form what it has become. I think it was 6 years ago and at that time everybody was changing the signature square picture by applying filters called Juno, Reyes, Valencia and Willow. I liked that feature because I thought it mae my photos look professional.
I looked up the history of Valentine’s Day and what I found is that one legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.

Welcome summer, we missed you so much! Now it’s time for bikinis, cocktails and pool parties. If you’re looking for a dope pool float, don’t surf away, just check out my list of the best inflatable toys. Forget the old-fashioned boring mattresses, it’s 2016! Now you can buy floats in all kinds of shapes and colours. Here are my favourites:
I have not always been plus sized, but you know what happened? Life! Life happened. And it’s ok, I’m not saying I love my body, but I never loved it. I always felt fat, even when I wheiged 62kg. Quite the contrary, I feel more self confident now, not because of the weight, certenately not, but because I’m older and many things in life become so much easier when you’re older. What never changed is my need to look good.
There is no shame buying plus sized clothes, the only shame is when they look hideous. Thanks Asos, Mango, Missguided, Boohoo and recently River Island too, girls with curves are able to find stylish fashion at a reasonable price. Since summer is slowely but surely coming, dress season is also coming and here are my favourite dresses available on the net right now.
It’s Eurovision Song Contest time! Yay! The gay Super Bowl is back! Make yourself comfortable on your couch with some friends and a couple of beers and watch the first semi final tonight at 9 p.m. Watch it on PHOENIX if you want so see it in German or on FRANCE4 for those who prefer it in French. You can also stream it online on the ESC web page.
Now you may ask me why do I watch it? On one hand I like traditions and I have always watched it since I was a kid, and there is also the fact that I love to make fun of people on tv. Nobody gets hurt, I can do my jokes and feel funny, it’s perfect. This is why I have always been a fan of the Eurovision Song Contest. In the past, I was even a member of the Luxembourgish fan club of Eurovision, the OGAE Luxembourg. With a couple of friends I helped to organize several charity galas with original ESC singers and I even co hosted the show three times. Whether you love it or hate it, the Eurovision Song Contest is part of European music culture.
