Is there a climax to broke?

Oh yes, flat broke. That's what I'm gonna be when &other stories open their store in Cologne this fall. Ah well, at least I'll look nice.

Long time no see

Well, hello peeps. It's been a long time since I wrote something, a year almost. It's not that I didn't have something to write about, quite the opposite. Most of the time I'm so overwhelmed by all the great things I see or all the thoughts I have, that I just end up writing about nothing at all.
Like most of you, I guess, I get lost in the deep waters of the internet for hours and afterwards I feel like "What am I doing here? Instead of looking at other people's life, I am wasting valuable hours of mine."

The other reason I was in a blogging-numbness was because I took it too seriously. I thought I had to decide for one topic, to make my blog specific and known for something special in order to make it interesting for you. But instead of coming up with something creative, I just stopped blogging completely because - obviously - this goal was in my head, but not in my heart.

Then I realized, if what I blog about is interesting fo me, it is special enough. And because I'm interested in not only one and one topic alone, my blog should reflect that. If some of you happpen to like those things, too - great.
I started TO CHANGE HORSES to have a diary of the things I like or find funny and to be able to share it with everybody. It's that simple - it's what blogging is all about. Get lost with me, and we will live happily ever after :)

Zero-Calorie-Cake








Obwohl ich ihren Blog schon lange lese, habe ich erst vor kurzem entdeckt, dass die talentierte Jordan Ferney von OH HAPPY DAY mit dem nicht weniger talentierten Paul verheiratet ist.
Ein Typ, der Ölbilder malt ist eine Sache. Ein Typ, der Ölbilder von Torten malt - hallo??? Der spielt in derselben Liga wie ein Mann der Gitarre spielen und singen gleichzeitig kann!

"Paul collaborated with his wife, Jordan on this series of cake paintings. This started when Paul asked Jordan what she would paint if she were an artist. They began a collaboration where Jordan art directed and Paul painted. A lot of baking and painting later resulted in this charming series of 50 small cake paintings. The show was held at Paul's studio in San Francisco where of course they served seven kinds of cake. The show was very successful and completely sold out."

Okay, die Tortensache war eine Kollaboration mit seiner Frau, aber das macht es ja nur noch toller!

P.S.: Die Zuckerstücke sind auch als Print zu kaufen!




Although I've been reading her blog for a long time now, I only recently discovered that the creative and talented Jordan Ferney from OH HAPPY DAY is married to the equally talented Paul Ferney.
A guy who draws oil paintings is one thing. But a guy who draws oil paintings of cakes - seriously? He's in the same league with a man who can play the guitar AND sing at the same time! I love it!


"Paul collaborated with his wife, Jordan on this series of cake paintings. This started when Paul asked Jordan what she would paint if she were an artist.

The show was held at Paul's studio in San Francisco where of course they served seven kinds of cake. The show was very successful and completely sold out."


Okay, so the whole cake thing was a collaboration with his wife, but that makes it even sweeter :)

P.S.: You can buy the Cake prints online!

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Ach Sommer.
Schneller als ich superkalifragilistikexpialigetisch sagen konnte, warst Du auch schon wieder weg.

Dabei bin ich in voller Shopping-Laune, aber Shopping in Gut & Grün. Auf meiner Suche nach Kleidung ohne schlechtes Gewissen hab ich jede Menge tolle Sachen gefunden. Unter anderem dieses Outfit, das ich sehr gerne in den Biergarten ausführen würde.
Übrigens ist es wirklich schwer, fair & ökologisch produzierte Schuhe zu finden, die meinen Geschmack treffen und die KEINE Sneaker sind. Diese hier sind zwar vegan, aber da hörts auch schon auf... Hat noch jemand Tipps?

What rhymes on summer? Bummer. 
Before I could say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, it was gone.
Damn it! I was so enthusiastic about finding Good & Green summer outfits. Like this one for example. By the way, it's not that easy finding shoes that are fair & eco-friendly produced and stylish at the same time. The ones below are vegan, but that's it... Can you help?

Free your hands!

Rucksäcke schleppen sich ja nun schon seit langer Zeit wieder durch alle Stores, Blogs und Magazine. Aber erst seit ich für den Job ständig meinen Laptop in diesem Fjällraven dabei habe, weiß ich sie so richtig zu schätzen. Besonders toll finde ich die Modelle von Baggu (gefunden bei Oh Joy).


Backpacks have been making their way back into fashion for some time now. But only since I am using this one from Fjällraven for carrying around my business laptop,  I discovered their true merit! I especially like the ones from Baggu (found on Oh Joy).
