Happy Wednesday ladies,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I definitely wanted to get this post up yesterday but Emilia did not want to sleep at her usual bedtime and I was to tired to write anything that would have made sense past my bedtime so here we are today.

Since I haven´t posted much of my daily looks lately I managed to get back in the swing of things and I can share these weekly styling with you guys. I always enjoy looking at people´s everyday styles so I hope you do too.

This is the first everyday styles round-up with all red hair. I am so happy that I changed my hair color. The red I choose is a little more on the cooper side (at least that is what it should be in the end, I have to go about 2 times more to get some color cause it takes a little until it stays in the hair) and I love finding styles and pieces especially colors that go great with it.

As always if you have any question feel free to ask and I am going to link as much as possible. See ya.

Happy Monday,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it definitely is a tough one today. Emilia didn´t sleep very well so I needed all the coffee and some ice rolling today. The ice roller is such a great and inexpensive tool and there are days in everyone´s life I am sure you´ll need one. I got mine a few years a go after Hayley from Blondie in the City raved about it a lot and I have never needed it more since I had Emilia. I mean she mostly is a good sleeper but some days are just jinxed.

So…

What are the benefits of ice rolling

Ice rolling has several benefits that shouldn´t be missed because they are so easy to achive plus the ice roller is only about 10 Euro and definitely brings great things with it. So here are the awesome benefits I was talking about:

 – ice rolling reduces swelling (much needed after hard nights)

 – boosts circulation which is helping to restore cells

 – can instantly reduce redness

 – can shrink the size of your pores

 – can calm inflammation

 – helps to keep my headache at a minimum (at least for me but it is worth a try if you get really strong migraines)

I definitely use it a lot these days. I keep it in my fridge cause it gets uncomfortably cold in the freezer plus it doesn´t roll as smooth when the plastic gets to cold. 

Hopefully we get more sleep tonight, so see you tomorrow.

All the details to Emilia´s Minnie Mouse Birthday Party…

….

Happy Friday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

the weekend is finally here and also the pictures of Emilia´s first birthday are back. How adorable has the Minnie Mouse theme been? The cake I ordered was so cute I almost cried when I cut into it. Also the cupcakes were the most precious I have ever seen.

I wanted to share all the items and info with you guys here on the blog cause I got some questions and sharing it on here means it stays on my platform forever.

The theme I decided was Minnie Mouse for my little girl cause I think it is an absolute gorgeous theme for a girl´s birthday party plus we gave a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal to her some months ago and she takes it everywhere she goes so I thouht the theme would be on point as she already knows and likes her mouse plus her mommy is a huge Disney fan.

And I know it only was her first birthday party and I probably went a little overbord but so what. We have been in lockdown for so long and restricted to do so much I wanted to have the most beautiful first birthday for her even if she won´t remember it. There will always be tons of photos and items for her keepsake box.

What to include into a Minnie Mouse birthday party

The Cake

The first thing I always think about when choosing a party theme is the cake. I love cakes and the looks of them and always wanted to have a tree-tier birthday cake for my child. Now I can finally have those. I have found various pictures of Minnie Mouse cakes on Pinterest and ordered a mix between 4 or 5 different cakes. 

Is one cake enough or is more required. To be honest the huge cake would have been enough cause we only invited the grand-parents due to the Corona restrictions but I wanted the little cupcakes too. A baker nearby make those and they tasted so so good plus how cute are the little cookie ears in the buttercream?!

The Decor

So party decor is right up my alley. In fact all decor is but who is counting. I get most of my party decor from Pink Dots Party Store. They have sorted their items by themes and/or color and you know me – I love great organisation. 

Here is what I got from Pink Party Dots:

red/white/black rosettes / red photo backdrop garland / red dot napkins / black dot napkins

The table decor includes some things from amazon as well as etsy. These three are my go-to for every party. The cupcake etagere is from amazon and holds 24 pieces. The black sequins tablecloth is from etsy. It is huge and looked so pretty. The Minnie Mouse letters are a download from etsy. I went to a copy shop to print them on thicker paper to cute them out and make garland for Emilia out of it. To be honest I was very proud of myself cause it turned out great.

The Photo Backdrop

Who wouldn´t want a huge ballon arch occupying their living room days before the party!!! No just kidding I loved our ballon arch. It was easier to assemble than I thought and I did it with a friend of mine and to say we were pretty damn proud of ourselves would be an understatement. I got the ballon kit off of amazon plus the band to attach the ballons. The whole ballon arch concept is self-explaining once you unpacked it all. And one more thing – if you are planning on doing one you need to get an electric pump otherwise you won´t make it out alive. It still took us some time with the mashine but at least it didn´t take our breath. Since I am no one for white walls I added the red photo backdrop garland (used the same one for NYE) and really like the way it looked. This was smash cake area and it looked so great in the pictures. Highly recommend getting one of these for any kind of backdrop you would need. They are inexpensive and so easy to hang.

The birthday girl´s outfit

Our little birthday girl had two outfits. One for her great entrance including the cake smashing and one to be clean and comfortable after. I got this adorable red polka dot tulle skirt on amazon and it came with a black onesie. It is really small. I couldn´t close the onesie and I also had to add more elastic to the skirt. It is one size fits all, if you are ordering the next size there will be a two on the onesie. It was okay for us cause I tucked the onesie into the tights and she only wore it for about an hour and didn´t seem uncomfortable. The second outfit was her comfy theme look. I got this red polka dot set on amazon as well and I was just as cute as the first. I ordered the 90 cm which was still a little big but better than the other way around. 

The Sentimentals

Since it was her first birthday I printed some pictures of her as a newborn and added the date. It is a personal touch and a very emotional experience to do so but I loved going through all of her newborn pictures.

Congratulaions for staying with me. It was such a long post but there were lots of details and I had so much fun planning it all for her even if we didn´t have guests other than the grand-parents. Hopefully next year will be different. 

Wishing you a happy weekend. See you.

Lavender for Spring….

 

….

Happy almost Friday,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

as you can see from the pictures our local flora and fauna hasn´t noticed that it is Spring yet. I hope this changes soon cause outfit picutres look ways better with a beautiful vibrant background.

If you are a longtime follower you know how much I love my dresses and Spring time is the perfect season to get me out of this lump of downtime after Winter and back into the mood of dressing up and wearing my favorite pieces plus some new ones that made it to my closet.

This Spring pastells are huge whether it is mint or blush or lavender. I love how great pastells match with my newly dyed red hair. 

I normally try to get away from black come Spring time but this dress was too pretty not to wear. It has a cute lavender and white flower print all over. The ruffles on the neckline are super cute and overall I would say it is a very “romantic” dress.

Are you guys dressing up for Spring now? Is the weather warm where you are?
