Maybelline Sensational Spices – Hot Sauce

 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.

and welcome to one of my rare Saturday posts, but the month of December is full with a ton of stuff and deadlines so  I need every possible day to share something different with you.

I love reading and I am browsing amazon every few weeks to find new books for me. And since there are more of me out there I am sharing this gift guide for the bookworm today. There is a whole lot more to a book than you might imagine. Like getting comfortable with a hot beverage and cuddled up into a warm blanket with your reading glasses. I have rounded up a bunch of things you could gift. 

 

reading lamp / City of Girls / page clips / book shelf / reading glasses / Kindle / faux fur blanket / monogram mug / wood tray / candle with book scent

Are you already done shopping for Christmas presents or do you still need to cross of one or two things of your list?

Hi guys,

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

we are in the countdown to Christmas or at last in the middle of preparations for the biggest holiday of the year. So with all the different customer services stores have to offer you can almost everywhere get your gifts wrapped and place them under the tree the minute you get home.

I don´t like to make use of this service cause first of all I love gift wrapping and second of all you can give every present a personal note so that the person who receives it knows exactly it is from you. It is so easy to personalize each gift.

These are the things you will need: gift wrapping paper, bows, little ornaments and branches, little cards or gift tags and eventually empty boxes. All of these things are available everywhere at this time of the year.

If you have soft gifts or gifts with a strange shape it is best to put them in a box first cause the present turns out more pretty if you have a rectangular box to work with.

The last of my presents are coming in tomorrow so I am going to be done gift wrapping by the end of the week. I like to wrap them up as early as possible cause it looks super decorative and festive under my tree.

Are you gifting a personal note with every gift or do you love the convenient wrapping stations at the department stores?
