Hi loves,

I am so exited to welcome you on this blog! I hope you like it, because I needed about two months to even get it started (I am not that good with technics…). In this first blog post (still, so exiting!) I  wanted to explain who I am, what I love and why I started this blog.

So I guess I should start with why I wanted to start a blog so badly. This is something I really wanted for some years now, but I was too scared all the time to actually do it. To be honest I am still a little scared, but finally the I wanna do this-part overweighed the I am so scared-part, so yay. And everybody I told that I wanted to start a blog basically forced me to do it then, so I had no other choice either, haha.

The reasons for me for starting blogging are basically that I love to write about the things that inspire me or that I wonder about. And I thought now would be the time to finally share my year-long haunt of pinterest wisdom. Besides I considered this a s a great way to give a sense to my obsessive list-making and photographing habits. Finally, there are a lot of things I would just love to write about, from fashion to food, skin care and beauty, traveling and mind setting. Which is why I made four categories: style, beauty, travel and life (creative as hell, I know).

To say a few things about myself, my name is Franka, I live in Germany, I am seventeen years old and I am currently visiting 12th class, so this is my last school year. Its probably the best idea then to start my blog just a few months before making Abitur. However, I love thinking about how to find your own style (not only fashion-related), to discover new countries (and especially their food, haha), following a healthy lifestyle and being happy about the little things (we are so gonna talk about that!), and generally how to live the best life.

I am trying to blog in German (and English), not because I am very good in writing in English, but rather because it is just so much fun. So I am really sorry for the language mistakes from time to time. If you have any preferances considering the language, please tell me, because I haven’t it all figured out yet.

Also I created an instagram account (@xenroses) several months ago to get this whole thing started and I already virtually met many lovely people, so that I really wanted to keep doing that.

Finally, the name. I intensely thought about this one and finally I called this blog en roses. I kinda stole it from la vie en roses, because firstly it is French which I really adore. I love that language, as well as the French savoir-vivre and the parisienne non-chalance. For me, la vie en roses means seeing life form its positive side, so happiness, joy of life and all that stuff.

Because I tend to see the things rather positive and I want to spread that thinking here, I thought it would match. And, en roses reminds me of en vogue, and as a passionate vogue-reader, I liked it even more. Finally, roses are some of my favorite flowers, which gives a pretty nice touch too.

So I guess I am finished with the first post one ever, I hope there are a lot more to come! Stay exited! Thank you so so much for reading.

Xx, Franka
