I love candles. It is that easy to say. Give me a scented candle with a cute picture on the front of the jar and I am definitely sold. I am weak in that way but that´s how things are. That´s also why I probably own more candles than a church and have no problem to supply the whole neighborhood should there be a blackout.
My personal favorite brands are Yankee Candle, Village Candle and the cute Fall candles from Bath&Body Works. My most used candle time definitely is Fall and Winter. There are so many cute Summer candles but I am in no mood to light a candle when it´s searing hot outside.
How to properly burn down your candles
The first and most important step is to cut back the wick. It should only be a few millimetres long. That is how you get a small and constant flame to properly burn down the candle. It is also recommended to cut it back after every time you light it up.
Another important thing is the location of the candle. For a evenly burnt candle there should be no breeze that disturbs the flame from burning evenly or you will have wax on the side of the jar that is left. Would be a total waste of money and product.
For the last step (probably not even a real one) your candle should fit seamlessly into your seasonal decor. Fall is my favorite so I went with a bunch of different pumpkins on my mantle.
Are you a candle person? And did you knew how important it was to cut the wick before burning it the first time?
FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!
I decided to shoot the nursery before baby girl get´s here simply because I am sure I will have plenty of pictures with her later on and it is just easier to take photos without a newborn (at least that is what I think).
The theme of the nursery is jungle book or lots of animals. It came together easily as the room was already nicely painted when we moved in so we decided to leave it that way and figure out what to do with the room as we needed it (side note – we both absolutely loathe painting so this was a nice surprise).
First thing I ever got for this room were the banana leaf curtains from H&M and then I went from there with all white furniture, a golden carpet matching the tipi and the floor and lots of stuffed animals you can also find in the prints on the wall.
One of the highlights definitely is the customized name plate above her bed. I have found it at an Etsy shop and it came very quick made of great quality. Going to link the shop here.
Since I started working on the room before we even knew what gender our baby had this makes the perfect gender neutral nursery.
Do you prefer more or less color for home decor in general ? Would you go with a green wall?
and welcome to my first holiday post regarding the Easter festivities. No one knows if it is possible to celebrate Easter with anyone else than the people you are quarantined at home this year but nevertheless I wanted to share a colorful Easter table scape in yellow and navy. I just love to create table decoration set ups. This is were I can be super creative.
For this years Easter holiday my color theme is yellow and navy. I absolutely love a bright yellow for every- and anything and my Easter decor for 2020 makes no exception here. The place mats are the same I have in several colors and I really like the material and shape. A woven place mat is perfect for Spring weather and upcoming holidays.
The cutest pieces of the whole table decor definitely are the yellow bunny napkin rings. The contrast with the navy cotton napkins makes the color pop right away.
Another cuter addition to the set up are the ceramic eggs in different colors and the little happy easter signs.
And for the frittata recipe, this is what you need:
– 4 teaspoons of milk
– 8 eggs
– 1/2 teaspoon of salt (if you want to add more feta leave the salt unless it is too much)
– scallions chopped
– 100 g cheddar cheese
– 150 g feta cheese
– 1 avocado to add as topping after baking)
– mix the eggs, milk and salt together and put into oven pan
