Contributing writer for LifeByHer

Secret project REVEALED !!!!

Long story short. The LifeByHer team was looking for contributing writers in different categories for their new media site … and I gave it a shot and applied for it. As you already know, I rather try something and fail, instead of having to regret not trying for the rest of my life. And now here we are. Can you believe it? I was chosen to be one of their new contributing writers! You will find my posts in the category ‘recipes’. Yeah, I know. Who would have ever thought that I’d become a part of such an amazing project ?! And more importantly of such an amazing community. LifeByHer girls, if you are reading this, leave me a comment down below.

What is

LifebyHer is two things:

  • a digital magazine sent to you every month. There you’ll find inspiration for everything a GirlBoss needs inspiration for … including fashion, fitness & health, hair care & styles, interior … and a little bit of everything. Just have a look here.
  • a brand new media site that you will be obsessed of! It is a source of inspiration that you have been dreaming off. That is where you’ll find my posts as well once it is up and running.

… and even more. It is a community, a friendship and a lifestyle.

Ashley Brooke LifeByHer Boss

The main mastermind behind all of this is Ashley. Just have a look at her YouTube Channel and her Instagram and you’ll fall in love with her immediately. With more than 83 000 followers on Instagram and more than 287 000 followers on YouTube she inspires a lot of people around the world. Together with the LifeByHer Team,  she creates all the content for LifeByHer and her YouTube Videos. The real BossBabe she is, Ashley also runs the blog What an inspiration!

I have the honour to call myself a member of the LifeByHer team since December 2017, when I got the confirmation that I was chosen out of many other applicants (still feels sooooo unreal to say this!).

Now that the secret is finally out, did you see it coming? What did you think my secret was? Let me know in the comments below.

That is exactly what I have been talking about in past blogposts (here, here and here), when I was talking about going after your dreams and rather trying things out, instead of always holding back and wondering ‘what if’. What if you fail? Yep, that is a possibility. But what if you succeed, darling? What if all of your plans and dreams become your reality? The possibility to have all of this come true is so damn worth the try!Dream big who said you can't have it all quote GirlBossHeaven

I am so proud of myself to give all of this a shot and I still can’t believe that it actually worked out. YAY! I’d love to see you check out once the site is up and running! I’ll keep you updated and let your know when it goes live!

Lots of Love,
from a really happy Franziska


Bio Végane Skinfood review GirlBossHeaven

OH BABY. I like it pure! Bio Végane Skinfood – Skincare Review

*not sponsored. Just sharing my experiences with you


What are the first thoughts that come up to you when hearing this word?
When it comes to skincare I did not have many options to chose from – hello, acne prone skin – so I went with what my dermatologist prescribed me. As I grew older, I became more interested in what I put in my body and what I apply on the outside as well. It just hit me one day, when I read the ingredient list on one of my moisturizers. All those weird ingredients I didn’t know and no sign of being cruelty free. Suddenly I felt the urge to throw those almost full products (I just had re-bought them. #error) in the garbage and not put it back on my skin again. I just didn’t feel right anymore. I began my research for new cruelty free skincare and I remember that I once saw this vegan brand on Instagram.

Bio Végane Skinfood skincare review GirlBossHeavenThey offer those packages, which include smaller sizes of different products so you can try them out first. Of course, they offer different product lines for different skin types. I chose the one for mixed skin and the one for demanding skin.
When my order arrived, I was really surprised what other stuff I found inside the box: pretty postcards and two small sizes of their serum as a gift. YAY for surprises.Bio Végane Skinfood skincare review GirlBossHeaven Bio Végane Skinfood skincare review GirlBossHeaven Bio Végane Skinfood skincare review GirlBossHeaven Bio Végane Skinfood skincare review GirlBossHeaven

How does my skin feel now?

Well, I know that my acne and sometimes shiny skin won’t go away no matter which product I use. Only my nutrition and genes have total control over that. Still I can support my skin with the products I put on it. After trying the Bio Végane products I found my perfect support system. I love the smell, the texture and the effects.


One more thing….

I feel like the topic of cruelty and vegan skincare products is not getting enough attention. As well as the role nutrition plays in the topic of skincare. Personally, I still have to learn a lot about that, too. 2018 is going to be the year of educating myself more on topics like this with a special focus on nutrition. Here (click) you can find my plans for this year. It is not easy to find the perfect and at the same time vegan skincare. You can expand this topic to the area of shower essentials, soaps, clothes, shoes etc. Personally, I only use vegan skincare, shower gel and hand soap. I still wear leather boots and I have a coat with fur on it. From today’s point of view, I would never buy such a coat again, but throwing it away now wouldn’t make it any better. I don’t think that it is realistic to start using/wearing all vegan and environment friendly products from one second to the other. It takes a lot of courage, research and in terms of clothes also money to find the perfect alternatives. Taking small steps every day is a good way to start. Always keep in mind what effects your choices have on the world we live in.
