it has been the prettiest Winter Day today. Lots of sunshine, no snow and mild temperatures. We spent some time outside talking a walk and having coffee and went back inside before the next snowfall. I want to be honest with you I like the snow the first few days but it is the end of January and this weird time when Winter is still in full force but we are craving Spring and flowers and lighter colors already.
Anyways I wanted to share this cute knit wrap dress with you cause I personally love both a great flattering wrap dress and a comfy knit dress. I got this one from SheIn the last month and first wasn´t sure about because it appears to be quite short but it is longer in the back and worn with tights and a turtleneck underneath to take away the focus from your breast made me feel much more comfortable.
Red and Black always looks great together and although I am craving Spring now I just can´t say bye to my beloved red knit pieces yet. I have a few more fashion posts for you guys and almost everyone contains something red. Maybe it is Valentine´s Day fever?!
Are you guys in lockdown where you live? I would love to know.
and with today´s post I am kicking off Valentine´s Day post season. This is my first post of the year regarding one of my favorite holidays.
I have posted tons of Valentine´s Day content over the years but never thought of making cute pink waffles. Now that we had so much time on hand and a waffle iron I made several different things in the waffle iron amongst waffles but for today´s post pink waffles it is and I am clearly not mad about it.
Being spoiled on Valentine´s Day with breakfast in bed or a sweet treat in the afternoon is definitely a very nice gesture but you can easily make them by yourself. All you need is a basic waffle recipe and red food coloring. The food color I am always using and is from Wilton and it creates the brightest shades.
This is the waffle recipe I have used. We made quite a lot of waffles since the first time for our breakfast board. They are the easiest of all sweet breakfast treats.
My pj´s are from Missguided and I got them from Asos. I could not link them via Shopstyle but I added some very similar and a ton of other cute pieces to the widget.
It snowed so much today so I got a ton of computer work done as we didn´t set foot outside. See you tomorrow with another style post.
Red Wine has become a huge favorite of mine over the last couple of years. I didn´t like it much when I was younger – maybe that´s an age thing – but now it is pretty much everything (besides champagne) I drink when it comes to alcohol.
Over the last few months (since I stopped breastfeeding) I tried out different red wines – mostly Cabernet Sauvignon – and I definitely found amazing wines for great prizes but also some that I didn´t like cause they were way to intense.
All of my red wines are dry. I find these the most enjoyable tastewise plus if they don´t taste good I find them to be the most aromatic to cook with.
The red wines I am reviewing today range from 5 to 12 Euro and I have a real gem for you for only 9 Euro. So now pour yourself a glass and keep on reading if you are interested.
Also I know some of you are doing dry January but this doesn´t mean that you can´t collect suggestions for the upcoming months.
A very light and good drinkable red wine. Low on acid. It is a dry cabernet sauvignon and a great wine for beginners. The Gallo wines overall are very tasty. The Gallo Cabernet Sauvignon costs 5 Euro. I got this one the second time already. In my opinon this is a awesome wine for gatherings cause it caters to the tastebuds of a lot of people. I give this one a B+.
My least favorite, in fact I used the rest to cook beef stew. It was way to heavy for me and I do like the real thick and heavy texture in a dark red wine but it had such a racy like taste and was somehow not enjoyable to drink. I am going to try the Merlot the brand offers soon but so far I am not impressed. The bottle costs about 7 Euro. I am rating this one with a D.
This has been my number one find. Costs about 10 Euro and has the best smell of berries when you open up the bottle. It is a very tasty wine but not acidic at all for a Cabernet Sauvignon. I would prefer this brand over every other I have tried so far every time. I have already convinced a dear friend of mine to try it who by the way loves red wine and she immediately got herself a small stack. This one get an A+. There is nothing I would change.
Another smooth and easy to drink red wine like the Gallo wine. It is a Cabernet Sauvignon but semi-dry. I also have the Shiraz but I like this one a lot better. It definitely is fruity and light. I personally would have prefered it a littlestronger but nevertheless is it a great wine. I am rating this wine with a B+. The bottle costs about 6 Euro.
I am sorry the review has taken so long but I had the worst technical difficulties over the weekend and couldn´t load up anything.
I am now back to my regular posting schedule so see you tomorrow.
I originally had other content planned for today and the rest of the week but I am having some website issues I need to fix first and therefore I can not load up new pictures so thankfully this post was already in the drafts otherwise I wouldn´t have anything left to post this week. But I promise you as soon as everything is fixed I will upload the red wine post.
Anyways who doesn´t love a cute faux leather skirt? I think I can see all of your hands going up in the air… I own a great amount of faux leather skirt whether they are short or midi, black or brown, ruffled or sleek I love them all and wear them frequently. Mostly in the Fall and Winter months because I don´t like them stick to my legs but that really is their only flaw.
A leather skirt instantly makes a look interesting if not sassy. I personally like to dress it down a little unless I am going out (but let´s be honest these days are gone with Corona, at least until the Summer). So for my outfit above I went with cozy knits and tights.
To be honest I haven´t worn this many scarves I did this season the last years combined but if you ask me why I don´t know. I love to add pattern or another color throughout a scarf plus it is super cozy and keeps you warm.
Have a great weekend and see you as soon as possible again.
