Happy New Years Afternoon my ladies, 

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

I still can´t believe that the new year will be here in a couple of hours although I have been prepping our dinner the whole morning. 

We did not plan to do anything today (the original plan was to get tons of Chinese take-away) but my mom wanted to do a Winter BBQ so we thought why not and planned out our NYE dinner.

NYE Table Scape

My table scapes are usually planned in advance so this one today has also been a last minute table setting with all the things I still had from last year or years prior. To be honest I do not switch much for NYE. I love a gold and black (sometimes I add silver) setting as it always looks glamorous and that is the theme I am going for on the last day of the year.

The plates I used are perfect for any kind of entertaining. I have those in several colors and these are my favorites for hosting. They elevate a table setting immediately with their metallic shimmer. 

Candle holders are a must at every table scape. I have been using the gold ones for every ocassion every since I got them. Were a huge hit at Emilia´s baptism table and our Christmas table too.

Napkins are a great piece to set the motto for the table. I love using cotton napkins but occasionally use paper napkins too if they are as pretty as these.

Glamorous Living Room Backdrop

How amazing is this golden NYE backdrop I set up in our living room. I have been admiring these for years at other people´s NYE parties and never got one for myself but this was the year to go all out as we had sacrifice so much. I ordered this from Pink Party Dots as well and it was here two days after. The set up was so easy and quick, I did it all by myself.

Quick and Easy Side Dishes

Since we planned on having a BBQ. My husband will handle the grill I decided to go all out with the side dishes. 

I made parmesan rolls, the recipe is here.

Another side I planned are Caprese Sticks. I basically put mozarella balls, little tomatoes and a basil leaf on a small wooden stick and am going to drizzle some balsmamic creme on top before serving.

The bread salad an oldie but goodie from our holiday parties a few years ago. It is basically a lot of vegetables (I always use what we have), some arugula, bacon, pine nuts, parmesan cheese and bread crumbs on top. You can use any dressing you like. I always make a mustard dressing.

Stir fryed green beans are another favorite. I am using two cans of green breans and put them together with a cup of bread crums into a pan. When the bread crumbs are golden the beans are ready.

The last two side dishes I have planned are spinach dip (an awesome side dish to take to parties too, great to make in advance) and deviled eggs (got the recipe from Reese Witherspoon´s book Whiskey in a Teacup).

 

Wow this has been a much longer post than I anticipated. Just wanted to quickly share some last minute ideas with you guys.

I hope you are spending NYE safe. We are only allowed to be five people and everyone has to return to their homes by 9 p.m. so this will be a short dinner.

Happy Monday my loves,

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

today is the strangest of all Monday´s. It absolutely feels like a Sunday over here and after four days of dressing up and celebrating Christmas we are exhausted and didn´t do a thing today.

I have planned on organizing some things at home so we´ll see how this goes because I am not motivated at all.

We didn´t have any plans for New Years Eve and I personally didn´t want to do anything cause it just sucks wiht all the restrictions but now we have invited our dear friends and neighbours for a Winter BBQ and I suddenly got excited again.

So for NYE outfit inspo I would say go all out this year. There have been less to none opportunities to dress up in 2020 so now is the time to shine.

The look I am wearing above is what I have worn on Christmas Eve but it will totally work for NYE too. Sequins are the most beautiful to dress up and I would never change them for any other fabric.

Another awesome piece to add to a sequin skirt is a tulle shirt. How adorable is this one and also how great does it look wiht the skirt. 

I loved this look and felt so glamorous all of Christmas Eve. Maybe I will rewear it. Do you have plans for NYE or are you staying at home in your sweats??

FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!

Hi you guys,

(post contains affiliate llinks/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate LInks-not sponsored)

although it is very unknown if we are able to celebrate Easter with any other than the people you are in the same household with during this pandemic, nevertheless I put together a Easter dress lookbook for all of you who still want to dress up for the holiday.

I am a huge fan of midi and maxi dresses. I think there isn´t anything more feminine than a flowy dress for warmer weather festivites and they always fit no matter what you do. Super easy to dress up and of course also dress down. This way you can get a lot of use out of every single dress you own.

In this post I styled four different dresses in colors and prints and although they seem to be similar (two are exactly the same in fact) all are styled with other accessories than the one before. I always depends on where you life and what weather you have but adding a jacket and a pair of closed heels can make all the difference some time. I decided to imagine the weather will be nice and warm like it has been last week so I went with sandals, mules and espadrilles.

New Years Eve Hair Tutorial – go big or go home….

….

Hello friends,

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

welcome back to my blog. It is New Years Eve tomorrow and if you are still searching for a big and beautiful hair style I got you covered. I love curls in my hair and they usually last me for days so it is also super convenient. Spending 15 minutes on my hair and it lasts for about 4 to 5 days but this hair style I am sharing today is a little more time consuming. It takes about 35 minutes just to curl the hairs, no cooling and styling time added. 

But if you want extra volume and a hairstyle to impress I would say this is for you – go big or go home am I right 😉

hairstyle, hair tutorial, New Years Eve, 2020, hair, beauty, Madame Schischi, hair care,

I start with clean and dry hair. You can straighten it before curling if you want but I don´t think it is necessary. 

hairstyle, hair tutorial, New Years Eve, 2020, hair, beauty, Madame Schischi, hair care,

I part my hair in different sections about 7 (it depends on how thick your hair is and apply heat potectant spray on every layer. I am using the curl hold spray from ghd. It is supposed to support your curls to last longer and also protects your hair from the heat. After combing my hair through I start curling my hair. 

hairstyle, hair tutorial, New Years Eve, 2020, hair, beauty, Madame Schischi, hair care,

These are the hair clips I am using to hold every individual curl. I got them off of amazon. They are sold in sets of 50. I used about 65 for all of my curls.

For this style it is super important to curl really small sections of hair. About 1 cm thick but not more. That is why you have a ton of curls at the end. It also gives you the most volume. I am using the T3 Whirl Trio curling wand with the smallest barrel. I always hold my curling wand upside down and wrap my strand of hair away from the face. Hold if for about 10 seconds and as tight as possible.

Loosen the curl and let is slide down the wand. Then hold it until you can lay your wand aside.

Clip it immediately as long as it is hot and and don´t uncurl your strand of hair. It has to cool down first. Repeat the same for your whole head is what takes the most time but the more acurate you are working here the better the curls look and hold in the end.

That´s how it look after you are done curling. Let them set and cool for about 20 to 30 minutes. If you haven´t done your make-up before that is how I would use the time.

After removing all the hair clips this is what it looks like before combing through.

I didn´t use a comb or brush at all. I just used my finger to comb through my hair as the curls stay tighter like this. Also adding a volume spray or hairspray or a combined product like the one I got from bed head is a must. I keeps your curls in place while they are still looking bouncy and natural.

We are going out for an early dinner tomorrow and then head home straight after because Chloe is terriefied of the fireworks and I wouldn´t want to leave her at home alone. Also I am super tired in the evenings as the bump grows a lot these days so we are enjoying a low key New Years Eve.

Wishing everybody a great celebration and see you.
