Happy Tuesday friends,

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

hopefully you had a good start into the new week. It is day 11 in home quarantine over here and we are still in a good mood. There are lots of things you can do to distract yourself for most of the day, at least for us. Maybe it is easy to say for me cause we don´t have any kids in the house yet (waiting on baby girl to make here appearance but she for sure is taking her sweet time) but it is still a ton of time to pass without having the opportunity to go anywhere than on a walk.

I wanted to share some activities which we included in our daily schedule so time will pass a little quicker or at all.

What to do at home…

1 // Read – Now is finally the time to dust of all the books in your shelves and finally start reading them or get some off from amazon. I always have a bunch on my wishlist I plan on purchasing from other reviews.

2 // Watch Netflix – The time probably won´t come again were it is acceptable to binge watch for days. There are tons of great shows on Netflix. I have done two round-ups you can read for inspo here and here.

3 // Make a puzzle – We got a 1000 piece puzzle and believe me this task is going to occupy a lot of your time and it is super calming. It has been years since I have done a puzzle and I have to admit I love it.

4 // Play board games – A great way to pass time and interact with your partner but I would only recommend if you aren´t highly competitive cause you at least have to stay inside for another two weeks.

5 // Organize your house – Not everyone´s favorite but definitley one over here. Amazon still ships so you can get all the container or inserts you would need to organize certain rooms/categories in your home like the pantry, your jewelry or beauty corner.

6 // Do online workout classes – Many gyms or/and even dance studios offer online workout classes or dancing lessons. A fun alternative to sporting outdoors and also spend productive time with your significant other. 

7 // Take daily walks – If you are still allowed to do so this is a task which should be done everyday. Getting in fresh air, movements and sunshine is super healthy for your body and mind which is really important at the moment.

8 // Try out new recipes- Definitely another reason for a daily number 7 cause with all that time on hand I have never tried out more different recipes than these days. I already made these delicious flourless peanut butter cookies from The Lemon Blonde and a Dutch Baby (an oven baked pancake) twice.

9 // Do your taxes – If you should get super bored despite all of the activities you can still do your taxes for last year.

I hope you are all staying healthy and as much home as possible so far. It is a difficult and strange time but it will also pass like so many others did before and we hopefully come out smarter and more resilient than before.

Staying organized and ahead of the chaos is a huge prority for me and a good planner is totally necessary for that. I had the Erin Condren planner last year and totally loved it but you need a new one every year so I was looking for a more sustainable solution and came across this planner from Filofax which is called the Filofax Domino Soft Planner. I originally gifted it to my husband and liked it so much I ended up getting my own. 

The outside is made of a super soft leather which is available in so many pretty colors. I think it is super affordable for the fact that you could keep it for years to come. 

Not only the outside is pretty but the inside can be as well. I got the 2020 calender inserts for my planner in this gorgeous purple floral design. There are different flowers for every month and I think it is so pretty and definitely a highlight for the whole year. 

Filofax offers inserts for a ton of things. Whether you need a lot of blanc pages or you need extra contact information, list or different kinds of calendars. You can get post its as well as inserts for documents and pens. 

Another thing I always get for my planner every year are a ton of stickers. I just think they are super and make it a lot more fun to plan ahead.

So let´s conquer the year ahead of us and make our goals happen.

My experience with Jackie Giardina´s #31daylipstickchallenge…

 Hi you guys, 

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

in the month of December I participated in Jackie Giardina´s #31daylipstickchallenge on Instagram and it was just what I needed. She has done it before and I wondered if I could be this consistent a whole month especially now that I am home already waiting on the baby. This was perfect cause it gave me a reason to dress up everyday and not wear my Christmas pj´s through the whole month of December all day every day. Also I have worn some lipstick colors I bought some time ago but stopped using for some reason. This is the main reason of the challenge to use the lipsticks which aren´t usually your first choice. Perfect for me as I own tons of lipsticks but tend to wear the same ones a lot. I think I did a pretty good job. My challenge contained a lot of different red shades as it was Christmas month and I also love a rich red color. 

I joined in on day 5 cause I haven´t noticed it earlier and I think it is really cool that everyone who wants to can participate. I am definitely going to join another round if there will be one. All of the lipsticks I used are linked under the pictures or in the widget below.

Hi you guys, 

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

since New Years Eve is just around the corner I wanted to share some festive ideas for the host or the staying at home gal. We decided to stay in this year and make cheese fondue. Our first plan was to go out for fondue but every restaurant has a special menu for New Years Eve so you can only eat this and nothing else.

Cheese fondue is pretty easy to make as it only has a handfull of ingredients and simmers by itself which gives you time to prepare all the food you want to dip in or eat it with.

We decided to go with bread, steak and some vegetables. You really don´t need a lot of it as it quickly fills you up but it is so so so delicious, I mean what is not to love about melted cheese??!!

For the table decor I went all in with glitz and glam like golden and silver glitter and a sparkly table runner with matching napkins. I personally love a matching table. The golden plates are the same I used for Christmas but another color. In fact I think I have about 5 different colors of them as they always work great for ocassions like this.

A classic mix of black, gold and silver is my favorite for New Years but you could also get really creative and use navy and silver dinnerware or anything else you like. 

Do you have plans for NYE already ? Are you hosting or going out ? 

See you tomorrow.
