Happy Thursday you guys,

anyone hungry and doesn´t know what to cook from time to time. Well as much as we love to cook sometimes we just don´t know what to make anymore and also shopping for groceries never was a great task and now with Covid it is even worse. So how convenient would be a service that deliveries your weekly to your doorstep and all you have to do is cook, not even meassure the ingredients. That would be awesome am I right! I thought so too and went for it. I have known about Hello Fresh quite some time reading about it in an ad here and there put finally set up an account two months ago. 

Hello Fresh is a meal-kit service that offers different meals every week. You can choose between three to five meals per week. We did three. I think this is a great amount cause on somedays we get take-out and other days we cook favorites. 

I am ordering our meals over the app. It is very easy to navigate and there is not much you can do wrong. So subscribing to the service doesn´t mean you need to take their services every week. If you don´t like the menu or are out of town you can skip the weeks you don´t need food. We pay weekly so you don´t pay any money for the weeks you skip.

You can choose from every dish Hello Fresh offers for the week or you are putting in a filter like vegetarian, family friendly, low carb and express dish.

Sometimes a fresh produce isn´t available due to weather or traffic so they will notice you with an e-mail and exchange it for a similar item or give you some money back. 

In conclusion the service is a great idea for everyone who hates grocery shopping, has no time to grocery shop, has not idea what to cook or who wants to try ususual dishes but not buy everything by themselves. All the meals are pre-portioned so there won´t be any waste of food. 

Delivery worked out very well so far. You can decide by yourself when your Hello Fresh order should arrive. We timed it for Monday and it always turned up on time. The perishable foods are cooled with ice packs and everything else is packed in several bags with all the ingredients you will need for the dish. The box itself is very sturdy so I don´t think the produce will be damaged ever.

We are very pleased with the whole service and will continue to use it.

There is a discount code that will be valuable till the end of the year for Hello Fresh Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It is fresh21 for 50 Euro off on your first month (10 Euro off, 10 Euro off, 5 Euro off, 5 Euro off).

Hopefully this was useful for you guys. If you have any questions left feel free to ask. See you.

Happy Thursday you guys,

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

if the last year has taught us anything it´s that your health is most important overall. With a world wide pandemic still going strong many people got sick and still aren´t recovered fully. 

Even if you are a mindful and healthy eater you probably won´t get enough of the vitamins you should have for a healthy metabolism and strong immune system cause most of the processed foods or vegetables/fruit don´t have what it takes to help you out in this department. 

Don´t get me wrong we try to eat as healthy as possible but sometimes you need support in certain areas of your live.

Supplements I am taking

First and foremost I am not a doctor and I have no medical knowledge therefore I am not recommending to take anything without talking to one. This is just an example what I take and what helps me stay as healthy as possible in these unsure times.

Vitamin C // Vitamin C is the classic, the mother of the vitamins. A few hundred years back and in some areas still Vitamin C was used to treat and prevent scurvy cause if you have a high shortage you teeth could fall out for example. Nowaday Vitamin C is used to protect cells and keeping them healthy, maintaining healthy skin and bones.

Vitamin D // Almost every adult has a shortage on Vitamin D which is definitely alarming for a country like Germany where we have access to everything. The body is able to absorb Vitamin D from certain foods like spinach, kale, soy beans and okras as well as from direct sunlight but still not as much as the human body would need to be satisfied. Vitamin D is important for your brain. It helps to lighten your mood but it will also support fertility plus taken together with calcium it helps to maintain strong bones and prevent diseases like osteoporosis.

Vitamin B6 // This also has been one of the vitamins I have taken since I found out I was pregnant. It is supposed to help with your energy level, boost your immune system and help with blood formation.

Zinc // Another great supplement. Zinc helps the immune system fight off bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. During pregnancy, infancy, and childhood, the body needs zinc to grow and develop properly.

Magnesium // I have been taking this since early in my pregnancy cause it had very bad ligament pain and taking magnesium three times a day helped a lot so I got very used to it and take it as well. Probably what helped to prevent sore muscles after starting to work out again but Magnesium itself has other great benefits too. It´s regulating blood pressure, supporting the immune system and helps with muscle and nerve function.

Selen // This is a new to me supplement I recently incorporated into my daily rations. It is known to help with thyroid function and protects your body from damage by oxidative stress. Selenium can also give you a great boost for your immune system and helps to prevent heart disease.

Omega 3 // Omega 3 or the fatty acid is known as the heart supplement. It can help prevent cardivasculare diseases and helps very well with inflammation. I have been using this for a while now but to be honest I hate how big the capsules are. 

Pill Box is from amazon and it helps me stay on top of my daily doses.

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.

Disney + Review…

….

Good day friends, 

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

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.

STAR WARS

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. 

Benefits

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.

See you tomorrow.
