Hi, I’m Christine, a lifestyle blogger and content creator based in Munich (Germany). I’m a woman who enjoys an edited home, loves a well-curated wardrobe, and values a simply elegant life.
lessbutluxe.com is my online home where you’ll find everything that resonates with my goal to create a beautiful everyday life with less. Less stuff. Less stress. But more of the good things!
So if it’s your first time here, welcome! Let me inspire and support you to go from overwhelming to delightful, from clutter to elegance and style.
The idea for lessbutluxe.com was born in the aftermath of a burnout and significant life change. I had worked in marketing for over two decades before I found myself in a role that wasn’t for me. In previous positions, I had gone through times of frustration and uncertainty too. But this time was different. I was no longer able to power through. So I plucked up the courage to resign and left corporate life to freelance and write.
This move gave me the freedom to rethink my life as a whole. I figured that the signs of burnout and depression hadn’t accumulated because of something that was missing. I had been stressed and overwhelmed because of having too much of everything. Too many choices, too many tasks, too many things to take care of. So I decided to declutter and simplify my life and find new ways to add value to it.
The No. 1 Rule I Live by Every Day
When I started my journey, I felt I need some guidance. I found it in a simple yet effective rule. And this rule is to always choose quality over quantity. As a result, I can enjoy all that I have and pursue – a beautiful home, a quality wardrobe, fulfilling activities, rewarding connections, and so much more. But without adding clutter, complexity, or stress to my life.

Why I Blog in English
I’m often asked why I blog in English. It’s indeed a lot more challenging than writing in my mother tongue – and occasionally challenging for my readers, too, I suppose. I’m glad there is software like Grammarly that helps me write better and make fewer mistakes.
Anyway, it’s absolutely worth the extra effort because writing in English provides a unique opportunity to connect with inspiring people like you – no matter where in the world you are.
