Hi guys

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

and welcome to my second gift guide for Christmas. Today´s theme is the homebody. This is a kind of person I can really relate too cause as soon as it gets Winter I become a number one homebody myself. It is dark and cold outside and I love to cuddle up on the sofa with a cozy robe or a cozy blanket and sip a cup of hot cocoa. 

Most of the gifts are under 50 € so they are pretty affordable but in fact this is always hard to say cause it depends on how much you can and want to spend. 

How far are you with your Christmas decorations and gift shopping? I almost have everything. Decoration is done and today I am starting to make Christmas cookies.


I have nothing planed for the weekend than staying at home and test cooking some meals I want to make for our Christmas dinner. 


Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Casual Saturday # 15….

…..

Hi guys,

it has been quite a while since our last Casual Saturday post (about + 6 weeks). I just had so much content I wanted to post until the end of summer and beginning of fall but we are back on our Saturday chat today. 

Eating:
We had been to our favorite restaurant two weeks ago and although I am always eating the same I still love it. Baby octopus with lots of vegetables and such a tasty sauce with garlic.
I started making pumpkin pies weeks ago and turned out so delicious I already made it twice. The pumpkin spice cake with cinnamon bourbon buttercream frosting from Mara from M Loves M. I found this recipe while browsing through her food section. Believe me you won´t be disappointed at all.

Shopping:


The first purchase I have to point out is this bag I got from Mango I ordered two weeks ago. The Van Mil bag and I love it not only because it looks a little like a high class designer bag. I wanted to have a bigger crossbody bag with a zipper and a flap (so I can double close it) for our upcoming trip so that nothing can fall out or no one can get in to quick. Only available online.

Off course there are some fall items I have purchased for our living room and kitchen but I am posting my fall decoration next week.


I finally got two pairs of boots I wanted for such a long time. A pair of hazeelnut colored over the knee suede boots from Zign and a pair of navy blue Hunter boots. I love both of them although they are totally different.


The Hunter boots fit true to size and they are super comfortable also the rubber material is so soft. The hazelnut otk boots also fit true to size but they where to tight for my calfs so I had to send them back. So sad. Now the search has begun again. Maybe that is the downside of dancing too much. You have to many muscles in your calfs.

Another thing I got is an embroidered top from Dorothy Perkins.

So what can I say about the embroidered top. Embroidery check. Ruffle sleeves check. Insert heat emoji here 🙂

And the last one for today is this beautiful make-up case for travelling from River Island. Ordered it via Asos. The pattern is gorgeous and it has the right size for all my make-up brushes and beauty products. It is hands down the most beautiful one I have ever got and also the most practical one. I am using this definitely as long as it lives.

TV/Book:
I am pretty ashamed that we are still watching PLL (but the end is in sight) but in fact we don´t watch much TV. Whether we are at the gym or I am reading and Florian is planing on some soccer tactics. 

But there are great books out and I have read tons of book reviews and got a lot of books so I finally had to start on reading them all. I finished The Girl on the Train this week and now I am reading The Obsession from Nora Roberts. If I am through every book I might write a book review for a fall and winter reading list.

I am pretty happy that it is October all ready and we are heading to the black forest to see the fall foliage in its peek in two weeks. Also I am thinking a lot about Christmas these days. How I am gonna decorate and what I am gonna cook this year and also about some presents. Maybe too early?! What do you think ?

Bridesmaid dresses with Millybridal….

 (post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affilate Links-not sponsored)
with the upcoming wedding season the demand on bridesmaid dresses is really rising. June, July and August are the main wedding months. Bridesmaid dresses can be required through the bride herself our you are free to get one you really like and feel comfortable with. 

These days there is a such a variety on different styles, colors and materials that it can be a little overwhelming if you don´t know at all what you would like to wear here is a little help. First of all you need to decide if you would like a short or a long bridesmaid dress. 

I found these gorgeous dresses at an online shop called Millybridal UK . The shop is specialized on wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and prom dresses. One of the best things is if you are in between sizes you can get a customed dress for only 15 pounds extra. 

But let´s have a look at my favorite picks starting with long bridesmaid dreses

These three are totally different in color and shape but they are absolutely gorgeous. I love pastells for a wedding cause it matches best with the wedding dress and the contrast isn´t to hard (and I love the kind of fairy background) but I have seen a few wedding photos with dark bridesmaid dresses lately and I have to admit I really start liking them too. 

 (from left to right)
1. A-line sweetheart chiffon dress
2. Empire sweetheart chiffon floor length ruffle dress
3. V-neck a-line chiffon dress

And here are my suggestions for you for short bridesmaid dresses. I prefer the long ones and I would always choose a long over a short but it is ocassional and based on the brides wishes.

 (from left to right)
1. Asymetrical strapless chiffon dress
 2. Scoop neck chiffon tulle dress
3. One-shoulder ruffle chiffon dress

 Which ones are your favorites and do your prefer long or short dresses?  I would love to hear. 

Thanks for stopping by. 

Take care. See you.
