The New Year brings lot´s of new projects with it. I planned on changing some little corners around the house plus we want to redecorate Emilia´s nursery to make a shared girls room out of it. Since we are having two girls close in age we decided to give them the big room and put them together.
We recently painted a wall in our living room in the most gorgeous rich caramel color and I love it even more now. I can confidently say that our living room is done after about 1 1/2 years of making small changes. Going to reveal it in the next week (hopefully).
So for our next project I have been gathering ideas and already ordered some wallpaper and small home decoration like pillows and blankets and curtains to get a little closer and coordinate the colors I want to have. Also every time I go around with a folding rule in my hand my husband has a mild panic attack cause he is afraid of what else I am planning to change (anyone else´s too!!).
H&M Home has become a stop shop over the years not only for seasonal decor but also for all kinds of decor, pillows and planters for example. We don´t have a store nearby so I have to order what I like but that´s not a problem at all. Never had shipping issues and the breakable pieces are usually packed really safe.
Who else is awaiting the end of Winter ?? Yeah me too but to be honest it is almost laughable cause Winter will still be here about 8 weeks and we are all already fed up of it. Anyways since we are awaiting Spring with all its benefits I wanted to share a cute Winter look which reminds of Spring so much. The light and airy colors, the flower print and the textures.
Of course there weren´t -15 degrees outside when I wore this so keep in mind Winter looks a little different for everybody but most of us have bad weather and cold temperatures but why not wear light colors like cream colored booties and a matching shirt / jacket ensemble. Lighter and brighter colors instantly lift my mood and that is one thing that is really important in the midst and dark of the cold months.
The blouse and blazer are both H&M sale finds. They have so many great pieces at really low pieces at the moment. I always love to shop there after the holidays are over. The pants I am wearing are probably maternity already but nevertheless the denim section is full of fashionable and affordable pieces.
I try to continue wearing colorful pieces throughout the month of January and February but sometimes all I want to wear is black cause it is so dark and gloomy outside and I am just not in the mood for a pretty color. It is definitely time for the sun to come back.
I started the year pretty strong with some fresh fashion posts and also worked out quite often so I wanted to share one of our Christmas and NYE desserts we indulged in and it tasted amazing plus it is super easy and quick to make – always a plus for desserts cause they can definitely take quite some time to make.
Since I didn´t have a dessert bowl I went with these pretty gold rim glasses I got from H&M Home years ago. I just love the way the dessert looked in the glasses and the portions still weren´t too big.
– low-fat quark
– frozen mango or fresh (however you like it)
– vanilla sugar
I mixed the mascarpone with the low-fat quark and the vanilla sugar. I really don´t have written down the amount I used, I used mixed it together until I liked the taste. But I would say mascarpone and low-fat quark can be the same amount.
Let the frozen mango thaw overnight and blend it the next morning until it is smooth.
So for the Giotto balls I used a rolling pin to crush them.
That´s it so far in terms of preparation. Now get your glasses and start assembling your layered dessert.
I went with a layer of Giotto, mascarpone mix, mango, Giotto, mascarpone mix, cream and topped it of with some whole Giotto and physalis.
Everyone loved it on Christmas so I made it again for NYE. To be honest you could exchange the fruit for any you like. Would be super cute with strawberries for Valentine´s Day as well.
It has almost snowed everywhere to date so I wanted to share this cute look I have worn on the weekend for a long walk. Getting up and out during the cold and snowy Winter days is hard. I personally know what I am talking about. We have a dog and a child and get out frequently but it is much nicer in the Spring and Fall time.
Nevertheless I am sure walking around outdoors is better in a cute and warm outfit. The sweater I am wearing is from amazon and one of last years biggest blogger finds. I got one of them this year and to be honest I wished I bought it sooner (immediately ordered a second color). It has the perfect thickness, a little texture, great turtleneck and an amazing length to wear with leggings or slim cut jeans. I got a size medium in the color apricot. Could have done a small as well but I am happy with the little more oversized look.
So let´s move on to the leopard print faux fur coat – isn´t it fabulous !!! You should go and get one for yourself. Winter attire especially coats can be quite dark and boring but this one is so fun plus leopard print pairs so well with many different colors. The faux fur coat trend is still going strong and I think it will stick around for a few years cause all of us aquired so many teddy and faux fur coats and we need time to wear them down plus I think they are super fandy and a nice change to the usual black down coat.
That´s it for today cause we have a sick child on our hands and a tired mama. See you tomorrow.
