Valentine´s Day Candy Board…

With Valentine´s Day around the corner sweets are found at each and every supermarket so I went along with it and created a cute and sweet candy board for Valentine´s Day or Galentine´s Day.

I love making holiday inspired boards and table scapes to this was right up my alley and although I can not eat most of it cause of my gestational diabetes I enjoyed it very much to make. 

To make it Valentine´s Day apporopriate I added as much pink and red candy as I could possible find (not an easy task in Germany I might add). 

This board would make such a great spread for colleagues, a cute board for a Galentine´s Day party or just a sweet treat for yourself. 

When I make a candy board I always start with the cute little bowl where I put small items like M&M´s, little chocolates or things like that. 

After that I like to put all kinds of cookies and chocolate bars on the board to get some straight lines and after that I fill all the wholes up with soft candy like marshmallows or gummy bears. One things I also always love to add is something salty like popcorn or pretzels. 

I used a wooden board I have had for many hours but you could take any you like. It just has to fit the amount of your products. 

The cardigan I am wearing here is from SheIn. They have such a great variety of cute and affordable cardigans for every kind of holiday.

Finally !!! I am finally sharing our redecorated living room with you guys. It took way longer than I expected and I was very annoyed at the end also I had some obstacles before even editing the pictures cause I accidentally deleted the pictures twice and on the day I was shooting the sun was shining the whole time but when I was done with cleaning it was gloomy so it wasn´t super easy to shoot but I think we did a great job.

Another point why it took a lot longer than I thought was that I had some ideas I wanted to incoroporate until the end plus I had to get plants/flower and print out some pictures and while this would have cost me half a day before Emilia I now have to break it up into two or three trips. 

So with no further ado here is our old but new redecorated living room / dining room. I absolutely love how it turned out. It now has such a comfortable and cozy boho chic vibe to it. 

Furniture : sidebord Hauga / TV Stand Kallax / Kallax compartments Drona / showcase Billy, doors Oxberg / chairs old the new model is called Bergmund / baby book case amazon / table is from a carpenter, it is oak / round coffee table bonprix / carpet bonprix / cow hide carpet Ikea / sofa XXXLutz / toy basket Wayfair / 

Decor : books amazon / pillow case H&M / planters H&M check out my recent finds here / moss balls Frank / flameless candles Frank / fake hanging plants Ikea here and here / gold pot Ikea / bull head Frank / all of the frames are from TK Maxx or our local drug store

I went with lots of earthy tones and glamed it up with gold accents in the decor. To cozy it up big soft cushions were a must. The majority of my decor is from H&M Home, TK Maxx, Ikea and bonprix. I personally like to shop affordable but good looking pieces. After linking all the pieces I incorporated into this room this could easily be a commercial for the Ikea catalogue 😉

The cinnamon colored accent wall was the last thing I changed before ticking this room and I definitely love how it turned out. Vibrant or dark accent walls have become super popular over the last couple years and it is a trend I totall dig but getting rid of a dark wall is a whole other project.

How to organize several parts of your home…

….

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

With the new year always comes the urge to start fresh around here (or at least to get organized, put away the Christmas decor and have a clean house). I have done lots and lots of organizing throughout the two years of the pandemic and some areas still need improvement but I am getting there. It gives me such a peace of mind and makes me love our house even more when everything is neat and has a place to go. 

With all the things Emilia has and has gotten for Christmas it is even harder to keep it tidy around here and I manage as best as I can but that will be another post for you guys where I specifically share want I did and why.

Now let´s have a look at the last areas I gave a proper cleaning. I am going to link as many boxes and little helper I used.

 

Kitchen – Spice Drawer

This was such a huge mess. I didn´t know half the things I had and always bought more cause I couldn´t find anything up to the point when I got almost crazy finding some of my spices and dediced to clean out the whole drawer.

I got these little glass containers in a set from amazon and they are super handy. They fit great into the drawer, they come with stickers to properly label your glass containers and a funnel to avoid messes. Love that the lids are labeled. 

 

Hallway – Shoe Closets

 I definitely am a little ashamed to share the before picture of my main shoe closet but yeah that is the real truth. I haven´t sorted this one for about two years and it definitely showed. I purged lots of shoes I don´t want to wear anymore as well as shoes that don´t fit anymore after my first pregnancy although I would say my feet are back to normal at about 95%. 

I sorted them by category. Flats and mules on the top and heels from the middle to the bottom. Sneakers in the middle. The super cool shoe riser are from Ikea and pretty awesome cause sneakers take up a lot of space and this way you save lots of space.

Bedroom – Make-Up Vanity

If you follow me for a time now you might now that I love Ikea a lot and could make proper advertising for them by sharing parts of my home so of course I do have Ikea furniture in my bedroom as well. My vanity and the Alex container are both very handy in terms of storing make-up and little beauty gadgets. I have gotten baskets over the time to properly store all of my belongings and of course my labelmaker could not be missed.

My lastest H&M Home Finds…

….

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

The New Year brings lot´s of new projects with it. I planned on changing some little corners around the house plus we want to redecorate Emilia´s nursery to make a shared girls room out of it. Since we are having two girls close in age we decided to give them the big room and put them together.

We recently painted a wall in our living room in the most gorgeous rich caramel color and I love it even more now. I can confidently say that our living room is done after about 1 1/2 years of making small changes. Going to reveal it in the next week (hopefully).

So for our next project I have been gathering ideas and already ordered some wallpaper and small home decoration like pillows and blankets and curtains to get a little closer and coordinate the colors I want to have. Also every time I go around with a folding rule in my hand my husband has a mild panic attack cause he is afraid of what else I am planning to change (anyone else´s too!!).

H&M Home has become a stop shop over the years not only for seasonal decor but also for all kinds of decor, pillows and planters for example. We don´t have a store nearby so I have to order what I like but that´s not a problem at all. Never had shipping issues and the breakable pieces are usually packed really safe.
