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

Another week has just flown by. There have been things in this week that could have easily been a few weeks away. I just don´t know how fast time flies these days. It is mind blowing and it probably will get worse when Spring and Summer with all its activities starts.


I have done pretty well on the meal front this week. Finally made a meal plan again and cooked strictly what it said

Steak and potatoes 

Potatoe soup

Pulled pancakes with applesauce

Beef wraps

Greek meat and rice in pita bread





It was a nice week with unusual warm temps for February so we went on a couple of longer walks and to the playground and we also headed out to a little day trip with the girls to get in some culture and cake. My favorite pairing.

We also had a Valentine´s Day date at home cause we didn´t have the nerve to go out and it was really nice. The steak was delicous.

Also we had one last carnival party for the kids until next year. My two little fairies dance the afternoon away.


Frozen birthday party planning has officially started this week. I had an appointment to order the cake and I also got some party decor now I need a little more and cute things for the kids goodie bags. So so excited !!!

Quote of the Week

Whatever you´re doing this week, do it with the confidence of a 4 year old in a Batman t-shirt


The Lady Jacket…

Has anyone loved the lady jacket trend as much as I do ? Maybe it is because I am overall a jacket hoarder. I just love outerwear and love to layer my way throughout the year. Lady jackets are definitley a thing I can totally get behind.

Now what is the definition of a lady jacket – what does this mean? The Lady Jacket is a structured, slightly cropped, collarless jacket. A classic stapel that dresses everything up immediately.

While a lady jacket looks amazing with a pair of casual denim I wanted to wear it over a black maxi knit dress and it was also a great way to combine it.

I have opted for accessories in the jackets colors like the scarf and the boots. Overall a nice look that works on so many levels and for so many occassions. 


How to create a photoworthy background for Valentine´s Day at home…


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

Don´t we all strive to take nice photos especially on the special days of the year!!! I personally like aesthetically pleasing picutures and I know not everyone agrees but in my opinion you do have much more joy with this kind of photos than having some trash or toys or anything else in the background you do not want to have. My meassurement of a great backdrop is do I want to frame this picture and have it sit on my sideboard ??!! A question you should ask yourself. If it is no a great homemade backdrop comes in handy and I am going to tell you how to get there.

Photoworthy Background for your Home Photos

For me personally it all starts with the balloon arch and then I go on from there. I make up my mind what colors I would like to have and then I go online and see what they offer. Most times I get a set but sometimes I buy the balloons individually. Totally depends.

So for this photo setup I went with a fringe curtain for the background and worked my way around it with a big balloon garland and some garlands. Since I had so much arch on the left I wanted to balance it out a little and got this flower string on the right. Cute and effective. You could also use this for kids pictures or some photos with your spouse.

The Valentine´s theme had to have bright red and whites and confetti balloons but there are no boundaries in terms of color combinations.


Plaid Coat…



If you have been following me long enough (or even just a little) you might know that that plaid is one of my favorite patterns. No matter if it is scottish plaid in the Winters or gingham in the Summer, I just love it.
