 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.

A look back at 2018 – my most read posts and more…

….
Good morning friends,
hopefully you are fit again after NYE and ready to start the new year. I am not sharing any resolutions but I wanted to share a quick look back on the last year. Favorite looks, what we did, what happended and overall my most liked and read post.
Comfortable winter day                            Streetstyle winter – neutral and chic in brown

January

My birthday is on the 15th of January so usually it is super cold and snowy and just the right weather to be bundled up inside but we decided to spend a few days in Vienna, Austria to celebrate.
 
Our trip to Vienna was great. The city is beautiful even in the grey winter months. So much culture and history and restaurants.
February
I personally love Valentine´s Day. I know it isn´t a real holiday and I also know that you should cherrish your loved ones year round and not only on one day but I think there aren´t any cuter or sparklier red and pink things year round so I love this day. And isn´t it always nice to spend time with someone you love.

Maritime Vibes                            Easter Candy Baskets

March 
Started to plan our wedding and finalizing on important details like the dress, the suit and our shoes as well as the flowers and our invitations. This has been the most productive month in terms of wedding planning.
April 
Celebrating Easter with a huge family brunch in the color of the year of 2018 and hoping that Spring would come soon. There have been a few warm days but nothing temporary.

Living room reveal                    Our engagement photos

May 
We took our engagement photos in May. I know this was be a little late but I totally wanted to have beautiful weather and flowers in the pictures.
 
Finally remodeled the guest room. I turned it from a sad box room into a fashionably guest room. So happy how it turned out in the end.
 
Fixed on from finally finishing the guest room I decided it is also time for a little living room do-over.

Pink Flamingo                                                     Ruffle shirt and apricot lace midi skirt 

June 
We went to Lake Garda in June and it was the best time I have ever travelled to. No crowds at all. A seat in every front row at the lake restaurants and no long lines. Since we have been to Lake Garda a few times now we decided to spend on day in Milan. The architecture and history was so amazing we where amazed for days.
July
My bridal brunch took place in July and it was a really nice morning spent with all the invited girls, chatting, getting to know each other and overall looking forward to the big day.

August
My bridesmaids and I packed up for a fun and relaxing weekend in Marienbad, a small spa town in the Czech Republic. We talked so much and had so much fun. I really want to to this all over again.

September
For Florian´s birthday I decided to make a do-it-yourself tacco bar and it was a hit. Everyone loved it.
 
And of course one week later the big day has arrived. Our wedding day. It was the most beautiful day I have ever had so far and got to spend it with the love of my life.
A few days after our marriage we flew to Santa Ponsa, a small town on the island of Mallorca.

Oktober
Bunte Beauty Days with my SIL and I made the most hyped recipe I have seen in quite a while – pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (which are delicious by the way).

November
Made my first ever Thanksgiving dinner and it was a total hit. Absolutely loved my table scape, my favorite of the whole year.

December
So many celebrations going on around Christmas time. We celebrated the start of the holiday season with our closest friends and I also cooked for our annual Christmas party on the second holiday. 
 
NYE was spent with a bunch of our friends playing a crime dinner. This was really really funny and definitely worth a try.
 
Hope you enjoyed it. I tried to keep it really short as there are so many “Year in Review” posts out there and I als get annoyed at some point.
