Don´t we all know the feeling of falling into a fresh made bed. I mostly know this from hotel beds which always have their very special and super fresh smell and I wanted to have this for my home to.
First of all I swapped out our bedding. I went with an all white ruffled bedding on pillows and blankets and I LOVE it. Love it. Looks so clean and super chic.
To set some color accents I added velvet ruffled pillows from H&M (I have linked them in the widget below), gray velvet pillows (they are also from H&M but could not find them to link) and the bigger turquoise pillows that match the duvet (set is from Ikea, still available but in another color).
All of the colors complement the hues that are already present in the bedroom. The light gray and mint shades create a super calming atmosphere.
Now for smells – I love anything Rituals related and one of my two favorite lines is the Sakura line. It smells divine like cherry blossoms and rice milk. So this is my tip to get your favorite body cream onto your sheets without staining – body mist. Simple is the answer. I got this body mist a while ago and immediately thought of it.
Using a body mist for you bedding is the perfect solution if you are sensitive to softeners and anything detergent related. I smells great but doesn´t stay on too long plus it is not overpowering or irritating.
Do you have and tips and tricks to get a fresh and divine smelling bedroom ? I would love to hear.
I definitely look forward on making my bed in the morning now cause I love the look of our new bedding and the decor pillows.
Next week is going to be all fashion related. I am sharing my last Winter outfits before we are diving right into Spring styles and colors.
we got Disney + in March last year when the Pandemic hit us and we were forced to stay at home and a short time after Emilia joined our little family so we stayed home even more and longer so this was definitely a good investment.
Disney / Pixar Animated Movies
I am a Disney gal through and through and love anything animated they ever made. Not only the princess movies but everything else too. I love love love Disneyland and everything with Mickey Mouse on it. In every city we are visiting and there is a Disney store I get a stuffed animal from a movie I loved.
Definitely great that you can watch all of the really old Disney movies like The Beauty and the Beast and Snow White.
To be honest I wasn´t a huge fan of the newer Pixar animated movies but there are definitely cute ones in the media library.
I hope to pass on my enthusiasm for Disney on to my little girl so that we can visit Disneyland together in a few years.
National Geography Movies
Not only did we watch several animal movies, we really got into the Bear Grills episodes. Thrilling and fascinating how to survive in the wild.
If you are a fan this is your streaming service. Not only offers Disney+ the old 6 movies, you can stream the latest Star Wars Movies with Raj and also the story of Han Solo plus The Mandalorian is exclusively on Disney +. We have been watching every episode religiously so far and it is one of the greatest shows I have seen in a while.
Seasonal / Holiday
Another category Disney+ offers are seasonal or holiday movies. For Halloween or Christmas for example all of the related movies had been accessable in one folder. So easy to find what you are looking for but it makes is even harder to choose from.
You can quit your subscription on a monthly base which is very nice cause you don´t have to remember a certain deadline or you make a one year subsription and save some money. Either way it is a good choice.
It definitely is a family channel. These are the first and foremost movie categories. If you are searching for another the adult category there are still Disney movies but not as plenty as other steaming services offer. I would say go for it and watch whatever you are interested in. You can watch as much as you like in one month and then cancel again.
and welcome to Christmas week. The countdown is officially on and I still can´t believe that Christmas is on Thursday. It is a huge blur for me this year and without any festivites it is a little unreal too.
We always made pancakes for Christmas morning but for this year I wanted to take it up a notch so how about a breakfast board??
Yes, my dearest friends it is easy, delicious and an absolute great idea. You could combine any kind of food. We made mini pancakes, waffles and bacon and put lots of toppings on the board too like jam, nutella, chocolate drops, berries and maple syrup.
This is THE real treat. I absolutely life for breakfast and was so so happy about it. To be honest I thought it would be harder to get everything done in time but it was very manageable.
Another great addition would be french toast. Or you serve a hearty breakfast board including bacon and fried eggs, avocado and toast plus it is so pretty on the eye.
I wasn´t sure if I would share a table scape this year cause all of our planned festivities have been cancelled due to the second lockdown but we are allowed to celebrate Christmas with our family so here we are. The minute I heard about the loosening of the rules for the Christmas days I was going all out creating a last minute table scape with things I already had.
I wanted to have a rustic table scape with lots of wood and greenery but ended up having no wood but lots of fir. I personally love how it turned out. The table cloth is old but I have never used it. I went with red plates and red gingham napkins for the country flair. For some glamour I added all golden accessories like the candle holders, napkin rings and the bootle brush trees.
As a little extra I love to add string lights. These are the fairy lights and make the faintest little light spots which are awesome for table lighting besides the candles.
I am pretty proud of myself for pulling this off in the short time I had. Normally I think about my Christmas dinner table scape for weeks.
