Everytime I sit down and write another monthly update I can not believe hot much time has passed already. She is going to turn 6 months shortly and I still remember taking her home from the hospital like it was yesterday. 

Emilia started rolling from her back on her tummy last month and now she is quite the pro. Back and forth all day long and she is getting everywhere she wants – mostly with a little detour but she´s got time you now.

Teething toys have become very interesting the last few weeks. She likes chewing on them and makes the funniest squeekie sounds. I ordered a cute little fox from amazon as well as a banana from Nuby and she loves both.

She has grown to be a very good sleeper and sleeps through the night on 6 out of 7 days I would say. The first time she wakes up and needs to be breastfed is around 6 to 7:30 am which is a huge stretch, after that she fall aspleep again and sleeps until 9 or 10 am. She goes to bed around 11 pm and I know this is late but her last long nap is from 8 to 9 pm so this has become pretty normal for us. 

I haven´t started solids yet cause I want to wait until she reaches a full six months before I slowly introduce her to other foods. This is handled different by every mother I know so far but that´s what we decided and to be honest I see no harm in feeding her purely breastmilk a little longer than expected. So far she has shown no interest in any other food at all and she has grown great with my milk.

She is now wearing size 74 in all of her clothes. I got a huge bunch of new things the other weeks. Thank good for H&M and Zara for the cutest but affordable clothes.

Sitting is another favorite activity of her although she can´t sit up by herself but she loves to sit on my lap or on the sofa over lying around. We just got the seat for her Stokke chair so she can sit in there and “eat” with us at the table.

That´s it so far. I am really excited how she is going to react to other foods and if she likes it. Going to be an interesting period of trial and error.

Good day ladies, 

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

what a day this has been. I can not remember what I did the whole day (besides visit my granny) and how it is already night time. We made burger today and went on a walk to get some diet coke. Super random things happening over here but we have planned some interesting day trips for the weekend. 

The weather is supposed to stay sunny but it isn´t as hot as it was before so we are totally having Indian Summer weather over here which allows me to start wearing some of my Fall pieces not only for pictures but also for a full day of errands.

I got this adorable flower print midi dress at a sale in the middle of the Summer and immediately thought this would be an awesome dress for Fall. The color and the cut, plus it has long sleeves, are the perfect addition to this dreamy dress.

To add some edge and a definite Fall vibe to the look I went with a hazelnut colored moto jacket. It was quite the sunny day so I am wearing a pair of sandals but booties or pumps would work great too.

As for accessories – gold jewelry looks great with almost every Fall appropriate hue so that would always be my first choice. 

I have a nail appointment tomorrow and I can´t wait for my nails to get painted in the prettiest orange for Fall. So happy my favorite season is finally here.

See you guys. Take care.

Hi you guys

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

and happy Monday might I add. I just came back from a line dance lesson and now I am sitting in bed writting to you. Emilia is right beside me and playing with some toys. The weather was great on the weekend so I have taken a ton of Fall outfit inspo pics. I can´t wait to share them with you. Going to share lot´s of ideas on styling this Fall.

Denim on denim has been a huge trend for quite some time and if you break it down in to different colors it doesn´t look like a uniform. I went with black and classic blue here. The black culotte – a more feminine cut for a pair of pants is loosened up by a Rolling Stones band tee covered with a blue denim shirt. I love denim shirts, I own a couple and I always enjoy wearing them whether over a dress, over a t-shirt or on its own.

Adding some red accessories adds a little sass to the look. By swatching out the wedges this can be easily worn for the nicer as well as the cooler Fall temps.

So for this week my ladies I have quite the mix of different topics for you so stay tuned.

Wow I haven´t done a beauty post in a long time but to be honest there hasn´t been much that caught my eye the last two months. I almost exlusively stocked up on things I have already owned and other than that I didn´t need anything.

But times and needs are changing and after browsing the beauty websites I was finally in the mood for new things. I also have a bunch of things on my current wishlist plus I had been to Sephora this week and got some new goodies.

What´s new in my beauty cabinet ?

NARS matte lipstick //  My first NARS lipstick ever and I went for the color Rouge Insolent. It is quite the bright red and perfect for Summer or to brighten up your look. I would say the color is very similar to MAC Lady Danger. The lipstick has a matte texture and to be honest I liked it right away.

MAC Ruby Woo lipstick and liner // I have a ton of red lipsticks but after years of reading what a classic red MAC Ruby Woo is and how gorgeous is looks on every skin type plus it makes your teeth look whiter cause it´s got a blue undertone I finally caved and got it. It has become a quick favorite of mine and I love that the liner is the absolute same color than the lipstick.

Too Faced Tutti Frutti blush // I got the papaya flavor and the blush is so cool. I never had anything from Too Faced so this darling blush was a cute surprise. It smells awesome – like a fresh bowl of fruit plus the packaging looks so luxe and colorful. All of their products are created with such an eye for detail. This definitely wasn´t my last piece of their brand. The blush contains a beautiful corally shade and a golden bronzer. You can mix it together or apply it single, both looks great.

elf Illuminating Mist and Set spray // My local drug store finally carries elf products and I couldn´t be happier. The brand has definitely improved over the last couple years. I was so happy I got a bunch of things but haven´t tried everything yet which is why I am only sharing two different prodcuts with you today. I have used the face mist several times over my finished make-up to set it and I really liked it. In my opinion my skin stayed matte a lot longer than usual which is great for hot days plus it doesn´t smell gross and it is super affordable for under 10 Euro.

elf Liquid Matte Lipstick // Lip products are my favorite make-up article but I am sure by reading my blog you already know that. So no wonder I had to try the liquid lipsticks from elf. I have been into liquid lipsticks but sometimes I tend to dry out my lips and then the color cracks and it looks really trahsy. I hate when this happens. The elf Liquid Matte Lipstick holds up really well and doesn´t dry my lips at all. I have used it with and without a primer and it was fine either way. The colors are highly pigmented and the price is great for the prodcut. I got color Mauvelous -a matte rosewood with a purply finish and Praline – a dark nude great for Fall.

Face sponge // I recently found these little face sponges and have been using them religiously in my evening routine. I love the soft feel on my skin and they take of everything in combination with my cleansing balm plus they have a scrubing effect to take of dead skin cells. You can wash them and reuse the sponges.

Bath & Body Works body cream and body scrub // This set was given to me by one of my best friends and let me tell you the smell is amazing. The scent is a mixture of eucalyptus and spearmint and stays on your skin for a long time plus it has a great calming effect. Perfect if you are having a migraine or a headache. 

I really missed writting this kind of post for you and this seems to be a real good one as all of the products I got were great hits. 

Be sure to check back at the end of September when I am reviewing my Sephora buys.
