Don´t we all know the feeling of falling into a fresh made bed. I mostly know this from hotel beds which always have their very special and super fresh smell and I wanted to have this for my home to.
First of all I swapped out our bedding. I went with an all white ruffled bedding on pillows and blankets and I LOVE it. Love it. Looks so clean and super chic.
To set some color accents I added velvet ruffled pillows from H&M (I have linked them in the widget below), gray velvet pillows (they are also from H&M but could not find them to link) and the bigger turquoise pillows that match the duvet (set is from Ikea, still available but in another color).
All of the colors complement the hues that are already present in the bedroom. The light gray and mint shades create a super calming atmosphere.
Now for smells – I love anything Rituals related and one of my two favorite lines is the Sakura line. It smells divine like cherry blossoms and rice milk. So this is my tip to get your favorite body cream onto your sheets without staining – body mist. Simple is the answer. I got this body mist a while ago and immediately thought of it.
Using a body mist for you bedding is the perfect solution if you are sensitive to softeners and anything detergent related. I smells great but doesn´t stay on too long plus it is not overpowering or irritating.
Do you have and tips and tricks to get a fresh and divine smelling bedroom ? I would love to hear.
I definitely look forward on making my bed in the morning now cause I love the look of our new bedding and the decor pillows.
Next week is going to be all fashion related. I am sharing my last Winter outfits before we are diving right into Spring styles and colors.
we got Disney + in March last year when the Pandemic hit us and we were forced to stay at home and a short time after Emilia joined our little family so we stayed home even more and longer so this was definitely a good investment.
Disney / Pixar Animated Movies
I am a Disney gal through and through and love anything animated they ever made. Not only the princess movies but everything else too. I love love love Disneyland and everything with Mickey Mouse on it. In every city we are visiting and there is a Disney store I get a stuffed animal from a movie I loved.
Definitely great that you can watch all of the really old Disney movies like The Beauty and the Beast and Snow White.
To be honest I wasn´t a huge fan of the newer Pixar animated movies but there are definitely cute ones in the media library.
I hope to pass on my enthusiasm for Disney on to my little girl so that we can visit Disneyland together in a few years.
National Geography Movies
Not only did we watch several animal movies, we really got into the Bear Grills episodes. Thrilling and fascinating how to survive in the wild.
If you are a fan this is your streaming service. Not only offers Disney+ the old 6 movies, you can stream the latest Star Wars Movies with Raj and also the story of Han Solo plus The Mandalorian is exclusively on Disney +. We have been watching every episode religiously so far and it is one of the greatest shows I have seen in a while.
Seasonal / Holiday
Another category Disney+ offers are seasonal or holiday movies. For Halloween or Christmas for example all of the related movies had been accessable in one folder. So easy to find what you are looking for but it makes is even harder to choose from.
You can quit your subscription on a monthly base which is very nice cause you don´t have to remember a certain deadline or you make a one year subsription and save some money. Either way it is a good choice.
It definitely is a family channel. These are the first and foremost movie categories. If you are searching for another the adult category there are still Disney movies but not as plenty as other steaming services offer. I would say go for it and watch whatever you are interested in. You can watch as much as you like in one month and then cancel again.
the weekend is very near but if you currently are a stay-at-home mom or working from home your days might look very similar. We are in our second hard lockdown in Germany which means shops, restaurants and schools are closed and will remain so until the middle of February.
We have gotten really tired of watching TV and I never thought I would say this. Our one and most occupying activity from the last lockdown has been our newborn baby but this time is different so we have been on the hunt for other things to do. Let´s dive into it.
#1 Coloring Book
I started this recently and I love it more than I have thought. The coloring book is from Johanna Basford and has the most beautiful flower patterns to color I have ever seen. I was mesmerized by it immediately and am so happy I got it. It takes quite some time to fill a whole page with color. Great to kill time. These are the pens I am using and I find them to be the best (Stabilo Pens / Edding Pens.
This has been one of our lockdown favorites from before. A 1000 piece puzzle is so hard to finish but that is the thing behind it. It costs time and distracts and is really funny if you are puzzling together. The puzzle is Jafar from the Disney Villains Limited Edition. Definitely going to get Captain Hook next.
#3 Playstation Game
Getting a Playstation game for more than one player to play the same game together was a first for us and I hesitated a little because I never play and am quite bad (my husband plays a lot of game and mostly every day so he is used how to play with the controller, I have always been more of a computer games girl) but it turned out to be awesome. Sackboy is so so cute and would also be great to play with your child. I am totally hooked right now and will be ordering Little Big Planet very soon.
#4 Daily Walks
Physical activity is very important. If you have to stay at home a lot getting on daily walks is cruel. The fresh air and moving around sets endorphines free which are very important to prevent bad moods / depressions and if the sun is shining you also get some extra vitamin D.
I have been organizing like crazy for the last few weeks. Room by room and drawer after drawer and I am happy to say that I am already through organizing every closet in the house. This leaves me feeling so happy and accomplished. Although the shops are closed I got everything I needed from amazon. Their pieces for organisation are next level.
#6 Cooking /Baking
Now is the time to try those recipes that have been sitting in your kitchen drawers for like forever. I have been making a ton of new things with our Instant Pot and also pinned some recipes I am going to try very soon. This is definitely a nice way to spend your time. If you are searching for a partner activity you can cook together.
The loungewear set I am wearing is from Monki and on super sale right now.
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.
