Hi guys,

we are officially beginning the last weekend of 2018 today. Anyone else just recognized?? So it is really time for some New Years Eve inspo over here.

I have been on the hunt for a gorgeous sequin piece for NYE for a while now and now I have two and can´t decide which one to wear. Absolute misery over here!!

So the first one I ordered was this strappy sequin dress from SheIn. I think it is kink of cool. The length is okay with black tights (don´t like my dresses to short) and the sequins are really cool. They are more on the holographic than on the glittery side but they sparkle so that is absolutely fine with me.

I decided to wear it with a black body suit with baloon sleeves I got from SheIn as well. First wanted to wear it with a blazer but I wasn´t quite sure cause if I take off the blazer I only have thin straps and I don´t like my arms at all so the bodysuit is the right choice and the sleeves of it are so beautiful.


I am coming up with the second sequin look tomorrow.

Do you like NYE or is it too much of a procedure to get through? I am not quite the fan but I like the sparkly outfits.


Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Modern Christmas Dinner Table Scape in Pink, Black + Gold…

….

Hello friends,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
are you making progress in your Christmas preparations? I definitely do. After decking the halls and wrapping all of the presents and visiting several advent markets I have finally tackled our dinner table. Like every year our families come together on the 25th of December for a Christmas dinner I am hosting. 
I have a different table scape every season (it usually matches the color I have decorated my tree) and this year I only made a little change. I wanted the table scape to be black, gold and pink like the ornaments on the tree but (I recently discovered this) the gold on the ornaments is silver – oh boy. Since I already had all the pieces I needed and didn´t want to get everything gold in silver I just went with the gold.
Here is a picture I took as inspiration:

So I got a black tablecloth and started to decorate. The black and white place mats where the hardest to find (or at least I thought so) but since Ikea has a lot of different ones I decided to have a look at their site and voila they went straight into my cart. I really thought this is going to take ages to find similar ones but these are very similar. 

I decided to go with white plates rather than black ones and I also didn´t have any black so since I already got everything I also didn´t want to get out again to get new plates. The pink cotton napkins are from amazon and they are great. A super soft and well made material and the color is so pretty. 
The water glasses are H&M and I am using these over and over again also for our Thanksgiving dinner (view the post here). They are at a great price point and look great.
For a festive touch I added these little pink rose arrangements to the table and also the glittery champagne bottle ornaments and brass candlesticks with the rose pink candles.

It isn´t a typical Christmas dinner table in the traditional way but it is in no way less festive. I am probably gonna have red all over next year cause at some point I miss the traditional colors. 

By adding the Freixenet bottles (by the way my favorite bubbly drink) I wanted to make sure that everyone can handle the aperitif situation as they like. I always have some folks who don´t like the bubbly at all.


Since I am serving a menu there is no need for several matching dishes to place the food on the table.The only thing I forgot in the pictures is my water carafe with the golden rim. 


Do you have planned your table scape already and what are your colors this year? Or maybe I have given you just as much inspo that you setting it up like this?


As always thanks for stopping by and check back every day this week for lots of Christmas themed posts.

Wedding Wednesday – which wedding shoes I am wearing and why I decided against the Hangisi model from Manolo Blahnik….

 …..

Hi guys, 
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
ever since I watched the first of the Sex and the City movies one since never went out of my mind. The moment Big revealed the perfect walk-in closet to Carrie and she put a pair of royal blue Manolo Blahnik Hangisi onto the shoe shelf. As I saw this pair I knew which shoes I wanted for my future marriage.

Now that the moment is here – and I couldn´t be happier about it – I am not so sure about this pair of shoes. I got two issues about them. The first and biggest is the price. They charge about 900 Euro for this pair of shoes. I know it is a Manolo Blahnik but it still is only satin and not even leather. Although I still love it. The second factor is I don´t think I want a blue pair of shoes to my dress cause I have a romantical fall theme for my wedding and the hues are orange and burgundy. First thought about it is pretty good cause you got some new and something blue in one pair of shoe. But I wanted a more elegant pair of shoes. I know that they are available in creme and nude and white hues but theses don´t have much of an appeal to me.

 So the search went on…
As I found a pretty similar pair for a fraction of the cost I gave it a try. They are from River Island (similar here and here) and cost about 70 Euros. The blue is exactly the same and the application on the tip is different but it is a bow made of rhinestones and who could resist a bow. When they came in I wasn´t sure about the sizing cause the size 37 was to tight on the front but fit in the lenght so I ordered a 38 and that was perfect on the front but there was way to much space in the shoe. I couldn´t take this one cause I needed a size inbetween and they don´t offer half sizes.

So I ordered three more pairs. And I had an eye on one in particular which I loved on the website and I loved for real and I took at the end. They are all true to size so order the size you always take.

But let´s first have a look at the other pairs. A white pair from Dune London (similar here) which is a pretty close dupe to the Hangisi model I think and I really liked it. It has this nice brooch on the top of the heel and it fit quite good (I was walking around in the house for about an hour in every shoe) but in my opinion it was a little to high to get through a whole wedding day. They are about 140 Euros.
The second pair I tried on was also white. A really bright white. It has a pointed toe and a band to wrap around your ankle and tie (similar here and here). I think this would be a really nice shoe for a short dress but if you got a long wedding dress like I do you won´t see much of it and it was also to tight on the front so my toes didn´t have any space at all. Again not my pair of shoes. They are about 50 Euros.

The final pair I took is beyond beautiful. So artistically and ornate and mine. The brand is called Menbur and the model Ceti. Menbur is a brand which makes evening shoes and bags and bridal shoes and bags. The specilized on this segment on the market. The shoe has kind of a champagne color and a lace cover up all over. It has apricot colored flowers and rhinestone applications on the tip and I couldn´t be more in love with a shoe at all. It has a pointed tip but not to tight and the heel is high as I like it but not sky high so you coulnd´t stay or stand a whole day in it. They are about 100 Euros.

What do you think of MY pair of shoes ? I have listed a bunch of others in the widget below.

Hi guys,

(post conatins affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)

I finally got my christmas tree ready. I am beyond excited to share the whole tree with all the beautiful ornaments today cause I really love how it turned out. The flocked branches make the tree look so frosty and wintry.

For this years color theme I decided to got with this pretty green color paired with single white and silver ornaments (I had a red tree last year you can view it here).
The one things I wanted on my tree this year so badly where the candy canes and aren´t they cute?


I really love Christmas time and I can´t tell why it´s this way in particular. Maybe its the Christmas markets or all the lights everywhere or maybe it is the festive mood and the gift giving. All the deocoration and the punch or the children´s joy. It might also be the right mixture of it. Or maybe it is because of all the great Christmas songs so I am sharing my ultimate Spotify Christmas playlist with you guys. These are my favorite songs for Christmas time. They are on evey time I get home until I go to bed.


What do you love about the most wonderful time of the year?
