Carpisa – an Italian brand…

…..

Hi guys,


don´t we all agree that Italians make the most beautiful shoes and handbags. So it is no suprise that they brought a brand like this to us – CARPISA.

I first found this store a few years ago when I had been to Verona in Italy. They didn´t always have it there because I had been there before and I would have recognized it. So we went there last year as we visited Lago di Garda which is pretty close to Verona (about 45 minutes away).


It was pretty clear that I had to get back to one of their stores during our vacation this year too cause they have lots and I had seen some bags on their online store I was pretty interested in but I wanted to see them in live first.


So glad there is a big store located in Bolzano.
Those are my finds which I absolutely love and some outfit pics how I styled the bags I got last year.
Rusha – color metal gun – love the color, so trendy at the moment and the shape is so nice. In fact it has lots of storage and you can wear it by using the short handles or the strap.
Gifa – color turquoise – had my eye on this a long time cause the color is just so bold and beautiful. I couldn´t decide between the two available shapes first but I took the smaller one cause it is still big enough.
Exile Summer – color white – wasn´t sure about this one first but when I saw it in person it totally had me. The turquoise stones and the studs are just so beautiful.

matching belt – color white – I always wanted a matching belt to a bag I own.

Also got the cutest bag charms a tassel for the Gifa crossbody and a little bag in a pastel yellow shade (but unfortunately I can´t find them in their online store).
All of the bags are so gorgeous and so detailed and I almost couldn´t decide which one to choose. It always takes me a long time to decide. I am so glad Florian is so 
They also have a collection where Penelope Cruz designed a few pieces for and with them. Those pieces are also really pretty but they sell out very fast. 
The whole collection includes leather and non-leather bags (and they sell suitcases as well now) so they really do have bags for every taste and wallet and have you seen the little turtle all over their products. This is the cutest brand logo I have seen in a while.
 Thanks for stopping by. 
Take care. See you.

Casual Saturday #12….

Hi dolls and happy happy Saturday,

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

this was a rough week. In fact we only had one evening off but we made the most out of it. I am hosting a fun mexican eveinig tomorrow and I am really planing on building up a fun tablescape. 

We really didn´t do a lot of stuff which you would be interested.

I had line dance on Monady and Wednesday and my usual dancing lesson on Tuesday. And I started to go to the gym so I had a guiding in on Friday. 

Food:
 It was so hot this week so I only made cold and easy food.

I made this awesome cauliflower  pizza. 




 We also tried this inside out coffee I have found on Mara´s blog M loves M. It is a really cool idea to make ice cubes from your coffee and fill in the rest with cold milk. Such a cool idea for a hot day.




Shop:
This had been a week full of stress so there wasn´t to much going on in this category.

I have found this super cut crossbody bag from Mango with this round metal handle. It is called the Zina bag and available in black and this creme shade and it looks pretty familiar to a high-end designer bag.

 

I also got this clock for my office. I like the wooden / metal mix and I think this is going to look pretty good behind my desk.

The last thing I got was this hairspray for my mom. It is the Living Proof Control Hairspray and it should control your hair so it is not getting frizzy.

 TV:
The new Game of Thrones episode was live on Monday and of course we watched it and I must admit we forgot so much that was happening. Maybe there exists a summary somewhere so we can update a little. 
 I also watched The Bachelorette on Wednesday – in fact only the last 40 minutes – and I can´t believe that they are already going on the dream dates. It fells like it has just started. 


So that´s it for this week. I am now pre cooking and decorating for tonight. 


Hope you are all having a nice weekend. 


Thanks for stopping by. 


Take care. See you.

Hi dolls and happy Monday,

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

since it is so hot everyday and we are swimming so often I thought  would share What I got in my beach bag today.

I got this shopper from bonprix and it makes the best beach bag ever. The stripes and the braided handles and the cute pink anchor print are just perfect. I added this super big and soft towel with anchor prints to my nautical theme.


When we are at the lake or just out swimming I am usually carrying the same things with me. 
A sun protection spray (I love Ambre Solaire from Garnier, the smell is so good and it isn´t sticky at all), of course blotting papers cause I don´t wanna glow that much, a lip balm with spf to protect your lips from drying out, a hand desinfection gel cause we all know how disgusting restrooms can be, my tangle teezer brush to tame my beach hair, a nail file in case of chiping nails and a refreshing water spray which makes a fine mist in a  lime scent.


My cover up is from SheIn and I love it. It is so beautiful.I  have paired it with a pair of shorts here but if you are small like me (1,64 m / ) it fits as a short dress too.


What are your beach favorites to take with you ?


Thanks for stopping by. 


Take care. See you.

Casual Saturday #7….

Mug and plate is H&M
Cookie recipe from HRHH

….


Hi guys,
 (post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affilate Links-not sponsored)
another week is finally over and we are getting closer to our vacation each and every day. 

I already started packing as it is really warm in Italy and I want to wear as many Summer dresses I can and on the other note I want to take as many outfit pictures as possible cause I won´t get these backgrounds back to soon. But I planed a seperate post on packing.


Shopping:
I am still thinking about these pair of adidas sneakers. I have ordered them in white and sent them back and now I might get the pink ones. I can wear a kids size easily so they would be cheaper too.






Another thing I purchased is this clear acrylic organizer from amazon for my make-up corner in the bathroom. In fact I am just sitting on the bath tub and use the windowsill but I can´t open the window that easily when I have to remove every single thing so this cute little organizer really is a win for me.


I also found this adorable bag from Hallhuber. Doesn´t it look like a little cloud ?
It is from the 40 years of style collection and just so adorable. It is available in several colors but I love the baby blue shade. The bamboo handle is just the coolest and it has also an extra bag inside for all the smaller things you carry with you.


Reading:
I don´t know if this counts for reading (cause afterall I use it as a coffeetable book) but I got the latest Lauren Conrad book – Celebrate and I almost read it at once. This is something which I am really interested into. Tablescapes, decoration, menus, table manors and table settings and so on. It is the perfect book (and I also lost All in good taste from Kate Spade) if you want to improve yourself at those themes.




Food:
I tried out several things and my favorite of these week where the buffalo wings lettuce taccos. These where delicious I couldn´t get enough and I am not eating really much for dinner usually.



Another thing I tried was this shrimp / rice / broccoli dish. It wasn´t bad – Florian liked it really much – but I didn´t like the sauce. I might try this one again but with a different sauce.




And last but not least a vegetarian option. A chickpea curry. This was by far my favorite. So so good. It smelled so good I wanted Indian food immediately.

If you want to have any recipe information you can E-Mail me. Most of the recipes are from foodguidevideos from Instagram.

We also tried out a new restaurant in Regensburg.It is called bar Ravel –  a spanish tapas bar. I always wanted to try one out but the closest I got was the Greek tapas bar in London. I have a few pics on my Instagram stories so hurry.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend. 
Take care. See you.
