Good evening ladies, 

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

welcome to my new series – how to “at home date nights”. I have called this series to life because we are in another lookdown and also we weren´t able to go to a restaurant since November. It just sucks that you have no where to go and a lot of people I know are getting really sad. 

I am one of them, missing the easiest things of life. Going out for dinner, or to a movie or to play billiard or meet with friends. None of it is possible and I think it won´t be possible for a great amount of time.

Anyways, today is episode one and I am sharing a very easy but oh so great thing to do together. Cooking together. I mean everyone must eat so why not share the task. We love to cook together. It is our time to talk and recap our day and / or plan things together.

So why not make pizza. Everybody loves pizza and making it from scratch was a lot easier than I though. I have a love / hate relationship with yeast so take this from me – it was super easy t make the dough. 

For the recipe you need one block of yeast (if you only have dry yeast use two packages), a pinch of salt and sugar, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 500 gr. of flour.

Crumble the yeast into 250 ml of warm water, add the pinch of salt and sugar, stir it up and let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Put the flour and olive oil into a bowl, add the water – yeast mixture into it and kneed the dough until it is smooth. For about 5 to 10 minutes. Now put it back into the bowl and let it rise at a warm place for about an hour.

The dough is enough for two pizzas. Now you have time to chat and choose / prepare the ingredients you want to have on your pizza.

Put them in the oven for about15 minutes at 190 degrees. Pour yourself and your spouse a glass of wine while waiting. 

It is a great way to spend time together and dressing up for your significant other wouldn´t hurt either. It is all about making an effort after spending your weeks in sweats.

Happy Monday, 

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

it has been snowing on and off for the last seven days or so, also it is freezing cold and January which officially matches the month to the weather.

There is no possibility of wearing heels soon so I finally got myself a pair of warm and comfortable duck boots. So far they have been great. I didn´t not freeze nor slip and they are waterproof where it is important.

The style is called duck boot because the boot was created by a man who was in need of a pair of shoes which could keep his feet dry while hunting ducks. Also some say the tip of the shoe reminds them of the beak of a duck. Another term for the style is bean boot. 

We definitely enjoyed the last few days getting fresh snow every once in a while because no one has to drive anywhere. To add some color to the look I am wearing above I went with a vibrant sweater including different colors. I picked out pink and wore my pink beanie as well as blush lipstick. 

In honor of Valentine´s day and also because we are in our second hard lockdown I am starting a at home date night series tomorrow sharing one funny idea each week. So stay tuned.

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

I hope you had a great week. I personally am no huge fan of looking back on the passed year and never watch any of these types in the TV and especially with Covid hitting last year I really don´t want to go through it again. Although I must say giving birth to Emilia was the best day of my life and it also has been last year in the middle of the pandemic.

But one type of posts I always love to share and look back at are my top ten posts of the last year. I love seeing what you guys liked best and always try to go on with the most liked types of posts.  

So with no further ado and also because it is Sunday and I have nothing new to tell cause we didn´t do anything else than lie around here are my top ten blog posts of 2020.

Happy Saturday you guys,

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

I am usually not posting on Saturdays but I had some time on my hand and have taken a lot of cute Winter looks the last few days so I wanted to share some inspo. 

We just came home from visiting a befriended couple of ours. They have a baby boy who is three months younger and I am always in awe that in baby age this is such a huge different. He started rolling over and Emilia is crawling everywhere at the moment. It is just amazing how they develop in such a short time.

Anyways let´s chat about the look I am wearing in the pictures above. I love a cape as much as anyone who wants to add some drama to a style but a plaid one including pink and orange is perfection itself.

The question was if I wanted to go with orange or pink and I went with pink cause I missed wearing my MAC Retro Gloss and this was the perfect ocassion to put it on again. 

Beige is a great color to pair with many others but Pink really pops with it. This was one of the outfits I felt very Gossip Girl with and I didn´t hate it.

We are now home cooking together and watching TV. Another hard lockdown is starting on Monday so there isn´t going to be much to-do.
