I have a very special treat for you today. In my opinion there aren´t much more comforting foods out there than awarm cinnamon roll with a fresh and zesty cream cheese frosting and since you all are my people I believe you think the same way.
Following Rach Parcell for years I always wondered about her perfect cinnamon rolls and now I know where the recipe is from. The site is called The Food Nanny and let me tell you the cinnamon rolls are too die for. I made them several times and they even get better and easiert every time.
They are goey on the inside with lots of cinnamon and sugar and cross but soft on the outside. The cream cheese frosting is optional but we like to eat it like that in this house so here it isn´t an option. Super easy three ingredients cream cheese frosting. I use one package of creame cheese (300 gramms), half cup of confectioners sugar and a big squirt of lemon juice. I mix everything together and add it onto the still warm rolls. If you want it to melt down even more you could also add butter to the frosting.
That´s it for today, but I could honestly rave on about this delicous recipe for hours not that I need to. Bake it and see for yourself.
anyone hungry and doesn´t know what to cook from time to time. Well as much as we love to cook sometimes we just don´t know what to make anymore and also shopping for groceries never was a great task and now with Covid it is even worse. So how convenient would be a service that deliveries your weekly to your doorstep and all you have to do is cook, not even meassure the ingredients. That would be awesome am I right! I thought so too and went for it. I have known about Hello Fresh quite some time reading about it in an ad here and there put finally set up an account two months ago.
Hello Fresh is a meal-kit service that offers different meals every week. You can choose between three to five meals per week. We did three. I think this is a great amount cause on somedays we get take-out and other days we cook favorites.
I am ordering our meals over the app. It is very easy to navigate and there is not much you can do wrong. So subscribing to the service doesn´t mean you need to take their services every week. If you don´t like the menu or are out of town you can skip the weeks you don´t need food. We pay weekly so you don´t pay any money for the weeks you skip.
You can choose from every dish Hello Fresh offers for the week or you are putting in a filter like vegetarian, family friendly, low carb and express dish.
Sometimes a fresh produce isn´t available due to weather or traffic so they will notice you with an e-mail and exchange it for a similar item or give you some money back.
In conclusion the service is a great idea for everyone who hates grocery shopping, has no time to grocery shop, has not idea what to cook or who wants to try ususual dishes but not buy everything by themselves. All the meals are pre-portioned so there won´t be any waste of food.
Delivery worked out very well so far. You can decide by yourself when your Hello Fresh order should arrive. We timed it for Monday and it always turned up on time. The perishable foods are cooled with ice packs and everything else is packed in several bags with all the ingredients you will need for the dish. The box itself is very sturdy so I don´t think the produce will be damaged ever.
We are very pleased with the whole service and will continue to use it.
There is a discount code that will be valuable till the end of the year for Hello Fresh Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It is fresh21 for 50 Euro off on your first month (10 Euro off, 10 Euro off, 5 Euro off, 5 Euro off).
Hopefully this was useful for you guys. If you have any questions left feel free to ask. See you.
how was your day? I got a color refresh today at the salon and am more than happy about my red hair. Other than that there wasn´t much today although it has been the most April day ever. We had rain, sun and thunderstorm and strong winds today which was totally crazy cause there was a new weather every half hour.
For the outfit – how cute are flower print pants. I bought these last year to wear postpartum and totally forgot about them but they have an elastic waistband and still fit.
One thing I love print pants for are all the different colors you can combine with them and that creates such a variety of looks and never gets old.
The way I styled it this time would probably be mom glam. I paired my flower print pants with a white blouse and a sage colored military jacket. Sage is huge this season and in my opinion it is a great color to wear into Summer. Since it wasn´t to warm and we went to the park I have worn golden plateau sneakers with it. I definitely loved this look a lot and it´s great to wear while chasing after your child cause everything was so comfortable and stretchy.
Going to review our meal kit delivery service Hello Fresh for you guys tomorrow. So if you are interested make sure to check back.
welcome to my new series – a full face of —. Since I love make-up and often try out new products I decided to start a new series on the blog where I create a full face of make-up from one brand. I think this will be really funny and helpful cause we can have a look at a specific item from a variety of brands how it will actually look on the face.
So with no further ado let´s dive into. Oh one quick thing to add. I did not pick my favorite brand at first, I just got the idea while standing in front of the Maybelline counter and started right away. There are tons of drug store brands so we will be having fun with make-up all Summer long into Fall if not into Winter. Which means a great variety on make-up looks as the colors shift from season to season.
A full face of Maybelline…
Face Studio prime primer pore minimizing // I always love to put on a primer underneath my make-up cause my skin never feels smooth like after, but if you use to much it will start to crumble very soon. At least this one. It created an even surface where I needed one (around my nose) and I think it is a good price point.
Dream Radiant Liquid in 01 Natural Ivory // Trying a new foundation is never easy for me. I usually stick with the ones I have and they work great for me so this category is definitely the hardest for me in terms of longwear and color. The color I choose was perfect for my skin so that was a win and I also though it held up really well without drying my skin out. One of the main ingredients is hyaluronic acid so this definitely helps. It is a nice foundation I would use for at home wear so I do not have to use my expensive ones for such mundane days but you can definitely wear it out and about. It has medium coverage and from what I tried it is not buildable. It will look like too much pretty fast. Other than that the Dream Radiant foundation is totally fine.
Fit me matte + poreless powder in 120 Classic Ivory // This powder so reminds me of my teenage years. It was my number one powder I used cause it was so affordable and I still like it. Color 120 Classic Ivory worked very well as a finish for my skintone.
Maybelline Fit me concealer in 20 // It was alright but I am very picky with my concealer to say the least (did not like the shape tape either and that is a worldwide favorite). I might choose a lighter shade next time cause it totally blended in with the shape of my foundation and I like to brighten up my under area as well as hide dark circles.
Fit me blush in 35 Coral // Blushes are still great. I have been using Maybelline Fit me blushes for year (I do have quite the color collection). The coral color looks very light and airy and adds a fresh touch to your cheeks. Perfect for Spring.
Master strobing stick cream highlighter // The first cream highlighter I have ever used and I honestly liked it. The application was so easy and it is very intense so little goes a long way. There are two shades available, this is the rose one. I always stayed away from cream highlighter cause I was told when you have oily skin this will only make your skin shine more but I did not experience this at all.
Total Temptation mascara // I have my go-to mascaras and normally I do not switch them but I was pleasantly surprised about the Maybelline mascara. The brush was great to apply the mascara and it did not smudge or run so overall a great product plus it adds tons of volume.
Master Shape brow pencil in Dark Blonde // To be honest I hate it. It is super soft and I have to sharpen it after every use cause there is not tip left to use and it feels so sticky when I apply it to my brows. This was my least favorite product from the whole make-up look.
Superstay Matte Ink in 60 Poet // Normally I love the Superstay Matte Ink glosses and I probably own ten different colors but this one was hard to work with. Maybe it was because of the light color but it cracked after a few hours and looked horrible on my lips. So when you are out and about you can not just wipe it off and reapplying doesn´t do the trick either. I haven´t had this problem with any other color (but they are all more vibrant or darker). Definitely not going to use it again.
Eyeshadow palette Nudes of New York // To be honest I am usually not an eyeshadow girl. I own a ton of palettes because I love to look at all the beautiful sparkly colors but when it comes to applying I go through phases. Some weeks I apply my eyeshadow everyday and then somehow I forget about it cause it ended up in my drawer. The palette has a good variety of shades so you can get many different eyeshadow looks out of it from casual to dramatic. Price point is also good but in my opinion the powder isn´t as pressed as in other palettes so you don´t get too much on your eyeshadow brush and it won´t come off as pigmented as it shows in the palette. Maybe that is just my opinion cause I have mainly been using the Coastal Scents eyeshadow palettes for over a decade now and they are awesome to apply plus pigmentation is wild. This is a neutral product for me but can absolutely be a winner for someone else.
Lasting Fix setting spray // I only use the MAC setting sprays so compared to those I didn´t like this one at all. In my opinion it doesn´t have a matte finish and doesn´t do anything for my make-up.
