Happy Hump Day,

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

having a toddler who loves the water is one of the sweetest things. It is such a joy to give a bath to Emilia. She loves splashing around in the tub and playing with the water overall. I am super happy that she never had a problem with water. Never cried in the tub and although she isn´t a fan of washing her hair it isn´t a huge problem.

So to maximize her joy I went on the hunt for some baby bath gadgets and let me tell you I have found a ton of good stuff, not only for baby.

Amazon is my one stop shop for everything and it has gotten even more during the lockdown cause where do you get the things you want and need when every other shop is closed.

Baby Bath Gadgets

….

cushion // This will do amazing thins for your bones. Most of the time my husband gives Emilia a bath. He sits inside of the tub with her but if it´s my turn I am truly thankful for this cushion cause my knees really hurt after 30 minutes.

set of 4 water cups // Got this the other months for Emilia to play and she definitely loves watching the water run through. It is the cutest thing how she tries to fill them up all the time.

toy collector // This comes in very handy if you have lots and lots of toys in the tub with your little one. Just collect them with this great bath gadget before you drain the water. It holds a ton plus excess water will run through the mesh material. The toys can dry while stored away.

hair wash wale // I have seen this at another blogger´s page and I thought this was a great idea. We do love the water around here but hair washing it not in our top ten. The concept is great and it would work but now she knows what will happen when she see´s us getting the whale and isn´t happy about it at all. 

bamboo wash clothes // These are amazing. It is a set of 10 and the little wash cloths are super soft. 

bath mat // Added this to the tub to make sure she won´t slip and fall. It works out great.

bath towel // We have a couple of these towels, they are the best when it comes to wrap your little one tight and warm.

colorful cups  // Stacking cups are a new favorite in our house. Emilia loves to play with them now. She tries to stack and fills them up with water and splashes it around.

little boats // I thought these little boats are super cute but she isn´t as interested. Maybe later, maybe never.

octopus toy // This is a real hit. She totally loves her octopus toy and I like it to. It is super cute. The ring game isn´t her favorite but she loves to play with all of the things.

 

Shooting this post was so much fun cause Emilia loves the water so much and she takes up any opportunity to take a bath or go swimming.

See you tomorrow. July is going to be very interesting as I am starting a new series calles 31 dresses of Summer. Stay tuned.

Y´all know how much I love an organized space am I right !! I am sure there are also some of you around who value a label maker and acrylic organizer as much as I do. 

So for today´s organization edition I am sharing how I updated our bathroom cabinet. To be honest the bathroom is probably the only room in our house I don´t like. I think it is too dark and there is no space to put something else like a cart to add bath salts, flowers and towels in a decorative way other than that it is fine. It´s roomey and has lots of storage space.

So here is the problem. All the storage space in the world won´t help if you aren´t using it right and this is where I am sharing my process.

Tools I used for bathroom cabinet organization

Drawer Organizer // The acrylic drawer cases are the ones I have been using for about ten years now. You can literally store everything you like in there. From make-up to hair accessories to hygiene products to office supply.

Acrylic Container // I have sorted all of my travel sized bathroom products into these awesome acrylic containers. I divided it into different categories which makes it super easy to find and store away things. There are different sizes available but I went with the pack of 4 cause they fit perfectly into our bathroom cabinet.

Acrylic Tray // I planned on using this in a different way but it ended up in the bathroom with all the other organizational pieces but it fits all of my shower gels, oils and body scrubs perfectly plus it is super easy to clean in case something spills. This is another point why I love acrylic organizer / container. Easy to use and clean.

Medicine Box // To store all of our medication I got this huge box. It hold up all of our medication and also Emilia´s and Chloe´s things. The insert of the box has so many single compartments to organize everything you´ll put in there.

Lazy Susan // How amazing is a turnable organizer for your cabninet. It saves a lot of space and also has so so much storage space for all of your bath items. I organized things by category here. I have one lazy susan for all of my skin care and one in the above cabinet for all of my hair products.

Happy Monday my lovely ladies,

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

it has been an eventful day today. We went to the Tegernsee near Munich today for a day trip and it was so peaceful there and pretty. I just love any kind of lake. The glittery water, the wind and the all the shades of blue. It really felt like being on vacation today.

Now that it is officially Summer, not only on the calendar but also outside we did a cute little picnic in our garden on Saturday. I wanted to do so for about two years now and finally found the time and commitment. 

Summer Picnic

Having a picnic means eating great food at a surrounding that makes it tastes even better, but what to serve for a picnic. Eating outside on a blanket means you need good finger food that doesn´t spill or makes a lot of dirt if it rolls of the plate or falls on the blanket.

What to serve in terms of food

Any kinds of fruits, bread, cheese, charcuterie, dry cake, vegetables, any kind of salad in a jar, cookies and everything that will work in the heat and won´t spill.

What to serve in terms of drinks

Bubbly is great but to be honest I don´t like to drink a lot when it is this hot outside cause it makes me sweat even more. What always works is water with a splash of juice. It is refreshing, not boring at all and can be pimped with fresh fruit as well as cucumbers or herbs. But please do as you wish.

After seeing how much fun Emilia had at our picnic I am going to try and implement some onto our Summer bucket list. I mean I don´t mind enjoying good food and have her running around with such joy.

Have you guys some fun things planned for Summer time? I would love to hear some. 

See you tomorrow.

My birthday this year and everything that has changed….

Hi you guys,

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

my birthday was on Friday – I turned 31 this year and it still feels strange to have a three in my age. I wanted to share a little update over here what has been going on the last couple of months.

Looking back my last birthday seems like a lifetime ago although it only has been one year. ONE YEAR – were major things changed!!

I did those fun facts about me no one would suggest for a few years now but it somehow feels a little strange to me this year.

Looking back on my last year

The best thing that happened all year was giving birth to our little girl. She is the center of our lives and also the sunshine. She was born in march in the heights of the Covid 19 outbreak. Hospital restrictions hit us hard but in the end I was so happy my husband could be with me in labor and delivery the whole time. 

2020 was a tough year but not only in terms of the pandemic. We had so many plans and hopes for this year and most of them were crushed with no further ado. This was very hard to take and the constant social distancing and staying at home took a toll at everyones mental health.

Sacrifice was a big word for the year of 2020. I didn´t get a baby shower or a maternity photo shoot and our planned photographer to shoot newborn pictures at the hospital had also been canceled. I was very sad about all that but also over the moon excited for our new baby. 

And I know very well that me complaining over these kind of things is rather insignificant cause people do have relatives who died of the virus and doctors and nurses are working non-stop plus all the small businesses that are closed now and probably won´t re-open ever again but it was planned and I was looking forward to it and it was taken away from us. It is just hard to adjust to everything at once and not thinking about if life will ever be the same. 

On my last birthday I was still pregnant, we went out shopping and headed out for dinner with our family. We are miles away from getting back normality and it is very scary to not knowing what happens next. 

So this became much longer than I anticipated. At least I was able to bring some of my recent thoughts to “paper”. I think many people are feeling the same but are anxious to admit it because they don´t want to be judged for being selfish.

Anyways cheers to 31!!

See you tomorrow.
