while you are reading my Casual Saturday posts you are probably sitting on the sofa with a big cup of coffee in your hands and pj´s still on (at least that´s what I am doing – probably until lunchtime but who cares on a Saturday anyways) and that´s just how I intended it to be. Gathering some thoughts and inpso for a full weekend ahead.
We haven´t planned to much. I am at home today most of the day cleaning and tidying up and outfit preparing for shooting tomorrow and I also should start packing. Tonight we are out for Indian food (our favorite) with my in-laws and that´s mostly it. On Sunday we don´t have any plans other than shooting some looks and maybe have coffee in the city .
In fact we didn´t watch that much this week cause either one of us wasn´t at home or we decided to play the new game called Conan Exiles. But while having dinner we always watch Two and a half Men (amazon video) or Modern Family. We are going to start Knightfall on the weekend since the weather is going to be really bad and the trailer was really catching.
I have to admit I didn´t do much shopping this week.
I got another one of the MAC mini in color D for Danger cause I somehow lost that one and a face spray from Mario Badescu. The other thing I got and love (last week) are the black pair espadrilles from Asos Design I also have in off-white. And the last thing which isn´t probably as interesting but super comfortable are these faux fur slippers for at home. Available in blush, black and gray. The are offered for prime shipping and holy cow are they comfy and oh so soft.
The week in posts:
Monday – Give me all the Spring dresses – navy + flower print…
Tuesday – Easter Outfit Inspo – White lace + red pleats…
when you read this I am probably already out and running errands. I have a long list today and I am not sure if I can tick off every little thing but let´s see. I still need to get some things for our trip and I also have some appointments today. Also I am trying out make pulled pork at home for our cuban sandwiches for dinner tonight. Let´s see how this will work out.
But anyways, since Easter is right around the corner and you want to try something new regarding your Easter bruch traditions today is the day. I have made my famous carrot cake for years and always in the shape of an actual cake but for this year I wanted to make it a little cuter and went with carrot cake cupcakes instead.
The recipe absolutely stays the same (you can view it here) I just filled the batter into a smaller cake tin. I used 1 tablespoon of batter for each which made about 24 cupcakes. The frosting also stays the same, the only difference it that you should probably use a piping bag to add it onto the cool cupcakes.
I garnished them with marzipan carrots but in fact you can use whatever spring or easter like animal/food you prefer.

aren´t there pieces from time to time that catch our eye and have also caught a whole bunch of bloggers eyes. There are. For the colder time its usually a pair of boots or a warm blanket scarf everyone is wearing and for summertime a pair of wedges or what I have found – a dress. This maxi dress with the high side slits which can be knotted in the front or not appears to be in so many different bloggers closets that is has become a total trend article. It is from amazon and under 20 Euro and comes with prime shipping. I got it in the color gray but it is also available in black.
For the look I have paired a denim jacket (I have been loving the denim jacket/dress combo lately and try to wear it as much as possible before it gets to hot) and my favorite pair for espadrilles (I recently got in black) to point the look towards Spring and Summer. The handbag I am wearing is my Gemini Link from Tory Burch I got myself for my birthday. It matches perfectly with so many things of my wardrobe and also holds a ton of stuff. The perfect bag for travel or work or errands. Since it wasn´t super hot and to add some coolness I went with a black baker boy cap.
how about some Easter outfit inspiration for you, after sharing my tablescape and a few of my recipes I wanted to style a look which would look so nice and pretty for any Easter festivity. I have worn this exact look for our Easter brunch last Sunday and it was a total hit. Super comfortable and oh so springish.
The skirt I am wearing for this outfit was a total steal I got from H&M a few weeks ago. They had a current 70 % discount and I snagged it for about 7 Euro which is amazing (it is still on sale). The quality is really good and the pleats are really thick but not too sturdy. They will wash nicely without fading over time. Adding a white lace shirt instantly creates a dreamy and romantic touch. Of course I have worn my favorite pair of espadrilles which completetd the look perfectly.
Lady Danger was my first ever MAC lipstick. It is the one I am wearing in the pictures above. If you are looking for a bright orangy red, this is for you. I don´t wear it too often but the color was bright and perfect for the Easter look.
I also had a lot of luck this day cause it was warm and beautiful outside so I didn´t have to freeze either. Finding out what to pack for our upcoming trip cause the weather changes daily!!!
