Hi guys,

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

we are in the countdown to Christmas or at last in the middle of preparations for the biggest holiday of the year. So with all the different customer services stores have to offer you can almost everywhere get your gifts wrapped and place them under the tree the minute you get home.

I don´t like to make use of this service cause first of all I love gift wrapping and second of all you can give every present a personal note so that the person who receives it knows exactly it is from you. It is so easy to personalize each gift.

These are the things you will need: gift wrapping paper, bows, little ornaments and branches, little cards or gift tags and eventually empty boxes. All of these things are available everywhere at this time of the year.

If you have soft gifts or gifts with a strange shape it is best to put them in a box first cause the present turns out more pretty if you have a rectangular box to work with.

The last of my presents are coming in tomorrow so I am going to be done gift wrapping by the end of the week. I like to wrap them up as early as possible cause it looks super decorative and festive under my tree.

Are you gifting a personal note with every gift or do you love the convenient wrapping stations at the department stores?

Happy finally Friday you guys,

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

I am so eager to finally share our Christmas tree with you guys. I opted for a classic color theme this year in red and green. The traditional Christmas colors. I personally think it is the prettiest combo I have done so far but this is probably one thing I say every year. 

The flocked white tree is from Fairy Trees I got from amazon three years ago and I still love it. I think the white makes is super christmassy and all the colored Christmas ornaments pop right out. 

So I added a bunch of tartan checked bows and glass candy canes to the tree. I like to have different ornaments and to play around with different textures and shapes.  The white tree skirt is also from amazon and cost about 20 Euro. I would say get one cause it totally adds dimension to the tree plus the white faux fur tree skirt looks great with presents on.

Another thing I enjoy decorating a lot is the mantle. Throwing a garland over it and adding the same color theme as on the tree not only makes it fitting in it also looks very festive. 

I am not ready decorating everything. My garlands up the stairs are still in the making but I can say that I have all the presents I need for this year. At least I have accomplished this. The rest of my decor should be up by the end of next week. Step by step is my new motto. I have to admit I am not as fit as I was before getting pregnant and I am tired more often. This bugs me a lot but I just can´t change it and in the end I am very happy the way it is. 

Did you decide on a color theme for your tree ? Have you set up already?

Wishing you a great weekend. I am going to post through the weekend so you can check back tomorrow or Sunday for new content.

Good evening to all off my happy readers,

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

it is Friday finally. I have been getting some last pieces I was missing to complete my Christmas decor and I am going to be done by the end of the weekend. Yeah for that.

So for today´s part I am sharing some cute little beauty sets to gift to your collegues, neighbours, to use as stocking stuffer or just ot keep for yourself 😉

There will be another beauty gift guide with a lot more ideas but for now I wanted to share these little and unexpensive things cause gift don´t always have to cost a lot to show someone you appreciate them.

Bare Minerals Lipstick Set

I recently got into Bare Minerals lipsticks and I have to admit I love them. The intensity of the color, the longlivity and all the gordeous colors. So I thought why not test a set out. It has half nude and half bright color kit. 

EOS Lip Balm Set

This is such a cute and inexpensive gift and also one every woman needs. There are two different scents in the pack so you could also easily spread it up.

Real Techniques Brush Set

A german brand that makes great quality brushes at an awesome price point. I got my first set for my birthday about three years ago and loved them ever since. They have several different sets also for travel. Their beauty blender also is my go-to and I always have an update at home.

Rituals Set

I am gifting a bunch of these every year during the holidays as these are all awesome. The smells of all are so so good and the sizes are great for travelling. Also the gift boxes are beautiful and make a nice piece of decor or a keepsake box.

Bare Minerals Gloss and Blush Set

Such a good deal on this set. A color matching full size set including a blush and a lipgloss. I came to know Bare Minerals products during the last Sephora sale and I like them a lot. They are great quality products. A little pricey but if you wait for sale opportunities or gift sets you get a great value for your money.

MAC Lucky Star Lipstick Kit

2019´s MAC holiday collection is adorable and I love it even more than the last two. The glittery pink all over the cases and the imprinted stars on the little lipsticks are to die for. Would make a nice stocking stuffer or a great surprise for the make-up loving gal in your life.

Hope this has given you some insight on what´s out there to get for this year. There are some tried and true classics but also always new products. 

Have a great weekend. See you back on Monday.

Hello my sweet friends,

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

Thanksgiving is exactly one week away from today so I thought why not post your current table decor as inspiration. If you are anything like me you always do the table decor first but I know that for many people the menu aka the food is much more important than to find wine glasses that match your table runner and your candles at the same time.

So for all of my food loving inspiration seeking gals – it is not to late. You can still have the table of your dreams plus the menu you adore.

I have already decorated for Christmas but in my opinion Thanksgiving is still a Fall related holiday so my Thanksgiving table scapes are always matching the Fall theme. Of course you can manage it as you like but that´s the way it is done over here.

The theme this year have been Fall flowers which can be seen on this adorable table runner I got off of amazon. The brand is called Appelt and I always get seasonal runners from them. The price and the quality is great and I am always very satisfied with their products.

After deciding on the table runner I looked for matching place mats. I have found these straw ones online and liked them a lot so I went with them. They would also work nicely for a festive BBQ table in the Summer months.

If I am working with warmer colors I always use my golden cutlery, napkin rings and the water glasses with the golden rim. They are from H&M Home and I love them and wouldn´t want any other.

Another highlight on my table this year are the dark orange wine glasses. I did not inted to buy new ones but they were just to pretty to pass on.

This table scape works great for Fall not matter the ocassion for your meal. I hope you are having a stressless time preparing for turkey day. Here is last years Thanksgiving table scape and this years Fall table scape
