Hi guys,

I know that Christmas time puts a lot of pressure on each and every one of us. There is the decoration we have to set up, gifts we need to find, there are family or holiday parties to host and menues to plan and don´t forget to send out the Christmas cards in time!!
 Thinking of all these different things might be overwhelming at first but you have to tackle it piece by piece and for the time in between I have 4 tips/activites to lower your stress levels and give you the possibilitiy to really enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.

#1
Grab a cup of hot cocoa, head to your sofa and turn on Netflix. They have so many Christmas movies on their channel. You will get in the festive mood believe me and it is also nice to cuddle up while it´s cold outside.
My favorites are:

A Christmas Prince
The Spirit of Christmas
The Grinch
A Christmas Kiss
Merry Kissmas
The Nightmare before Christmas
Miracle on 34th Street


#2
Be sure to create your own and unique Christmas playslist. Listening to your favorite Christmas songs whenever you like really is a nice change to the normal radio (in my opinion they chat to much and always play the same songs). You can listen to your playlist while driving in the car, wrapping presents or cooking and cleaning at home.
Be sure to check out my playlist for some inspo.

                                                                    

#3
Bake the Christmas cookies YOU love the most. As a woman we always try to please others and care about others more than about ourself. That´s just how it works but sometimes there is something you have to do for your own especially in stressful times. Search the recipe you love the most and start baking and if these are some your family members or room mates don´t like – good for you, so there is even more left.
Here is my favorite recipe. They are called snowflake cookies and super delicious. 

#4
Visit Christmas markets
The Christmas markets are everywhere these days so it is nice to spend an afternoon or an evening strolling around. Having some punch and some delicious food. Maybe you can find a last minute gift at the booths with all the pretty handmade things like wooden figurines or handcolored candles. 


It is good to unwind before the big day hits. 


We are going to visit a Christmas market on Sunday and I am also going to bake my favorite Christmas cookies tomorrow listening to my Christmas playlist. 

Do you have any other tips to lay back before the stressful three days of Christmas?

Hi guys,

               (post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
usually most people are on vacation during the summer months. Flying to culturel places or laying down by the sea but this is not granted or always possible. Many people can´t go on vacation maybe they won´t get this much time off or there isn´t enough money left for a trip.
So today I am sharing my 5 tips on getting as much summer feeling as possible without laying by the sea at Cabo San Lucas.

1. Wear your summer clothes wherever you go – whether it is to the grocery store, the city or to any kind of appointment. It gives you a different feel when you are wearing a flattering and airy and bright colored summerdress.

2. Get a deckchair and a palmtree for your patio or your balcony and go outside as much as possible. Laying in there with a drink and a straw hat in the sun completely changes your mood.

3. Decorate your home for summer. There are so many cute options with palm prints or flamingo prints. You can read my post about it here

4. Choose your summer drink. There are new creations every year and at the end of trying there is always one which tastes best. I made this rosé wine with russian wild berry lemonade and raspberries my winner. It is an old recipe from Monika Hibbs´s blog. I just love her creations.

5. Get some cute summer pieces for your wardrobe. I recently ordered this straw hat which says “chasing the sun….” from ASOS and this palm print bikini from SheIn. These are perfect pieces for you Summer atmosphere and really affordable.

Hope there is something which let´s you forget about the fact that you are at home in your vacation even it is just for a while.

Thanks for stopping by. 

Take care. See you.

Hi guys,

I was at home this week for vacation so we did a lot at the house and also where on two excursions so I am gonna tell you in two different posts what we did. 

I wore this outfit last weekend and I love this pair of culottes. I think this kind of pants is a hate it or love it thing. Some people love it and have several kinds of those and some hate them and would never wear them. Whether you like them or not (this outfit would also work for a normal pair of jeans). 

The blouse is from the Cindy Crawford for C&A collection (the collaboration was years ago but I still have it and love it). 

I love the straw bag with all the cute tassels. It is the perfect city bag for Summer to me. 

Thanks for stopping by. 

Take care. See you.

Packing for flying and travel outfit….

Pullover on sale !!! / Joggers also on sale

This is a little peak on my travel outfit.
….
Hi dolls,



this
was a tough one. First of all and for some background information all
of our last vacations we went were in a car ride distance so we went by
car and since Florian has a big car I had no probs on taking with me
what I wanted to. But now we are flying and your baggage weight is
limited on 20 kg per person so this is pretty bad and I wanted to take
as much outfits
with me as possible because there are so many great locations and
places for shooting pics – and guess what – I managed this in taking
some space from Florians suit case (he suggested this and of course I
took that chance). We might get a problem by flying back because I think
we are buying some new things for sure but that isn´t a current problem.



Das war wahnsinnig schwer. Zuallererst und für ein wenig Hintergrundinformation – alle unsere letzten Urlaubsziele waren mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Und da Florian ein großes Auto besitzt hatte ich keinerlei Probleme mitzunehmen was ich wollte. Aber da wir jetzt fliegen sind wir auf 20 kg pro Gepackstück begrenzt was für mich wirklich schwer ist da ich viele verschiedene Outfits mitnehmen wollte für so viele wie mögliche Outfitshoots. Und wisst ihr was – ich habe den halben Platz aus Florians Koffer bekommen (er hat es angeboten und ich habe die Gelgenheit sofort beim Schopf gepackt). Eventuell haben wir aber beim Rückflug ein Platzproblem aber soweit sind wir noch nicht.

I decided to take a carry-on with me – don´t know now if this is very practical – cause in case my luggage gets lost I need some of my stuff with me (chargers, some make-up, at least two more outfits, underwear,…). And the other reason is that I am carrying my expensive and fragile stuff in their cause most of you know how the guys at the airport treat the luggage.

As you are reading this I am already on the plane going to London !!! Yeah !!!
