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.

Good evening ladies, 

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

welcome to my new series – how to “at home date nights”. I have called this series to life because we are in another lookdown and also we weren´t able to go to a restaurant since November. It just sucks that you have no where to go and a lot of people I know are getting really sad. 

I am one of them, missing the easiest things of life. Going out for dinner, or to a movie or to play billiard or meet with friends. None of it is possible and I think it won´t be possible for a great amount of time.

Anyways, today is episode one and I am sharing a very easy but oh so great thing to do together. Cooking together. I mean everyone must eat so why not share the task. We love to cook together. It is our time to talk and recap our day and / or plan things together.

So why not make pizza. Everybody loves pizza and making it from scratch was a lot easier than I though. I have a love / hate relationship with yeast so take this from me – it was super easy t make the dough. 

For the recipe you need one block of yeast (if you only have dry yeast use two packages), a pinch of salt and sugar, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 500 gr. of flour.

Crumble the yeast into 250 ml of warm water, add the pinch of salt and sugar, stir it up and let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Put the flour and olive oil into a bowl, add the water – yeast mixture into it and kneed the dough until it is smooth. For about 5 to 10 minutes. Now put it back into the bowl and let it rise at a warm place for about an hour.

The dough is enough for two pizzas. Now you have time to chat and choose / prepare the ingredients you want to have on your pizza.

Put them in the oven for about15 minutes at 190 degrees. Pour yourself and your spouse a glass of wine while waiting. 

It is a great way to spend time together and dressing up for your significant other wouldn´t hurt either. It is all about making an effort after spending your weeks in sweats.

Happy Sunday and a belated Happy New Year to all of my cute gals,

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

I hope you had a great week. I personally am no huge fan of looking back on the passed year and never watch any of these types in the TV and especially with Covid hitting last year I really don´t want to go through it again. Although I must say giving birth to Emilia was the best day of my life and it also has been last year in the middle of the pandemic.

But one type of posts I always love to share and look back at are my top ten posts of the last year. I love seeing what you guys liked best and always try to go on with the most liked types of posts.  

So with no further ado and also because it is Sunday and I have nothing new to tell cause we didn´t do anything else than lie around here are my top ten blog posts of 2020.

How cute are those pictures with my little girl? She is such a happy camper all the time and it seems like she loves the camera.

I am sharing all the things I have in my diaper bag today but first of all I wanted to share which one I use. I do have several large shopper bags like the LV Neverfull or the Tory Burch Gemini Link but I also got a classic diaper bag. I used the diaper bag for our walks as I only needed to have the baby´s things with me but now after lockdown I find it much more convenient to carry a shopper handbag around with me.

The diaper bag I got is from SkipHop. I love all of their things. I got the changing pad as well as the wet clothes pouch and use it all the time. My most used handbag I use as a diaper bag is my LV Neverfull or my Coach Market Tote. Both have the perfect shape to add one of these great felt organizer you can get of amazon. A organizer can transfer any bag into a well sorted place to keep your things. 

What is in my diaper bag?

– diapers (of course)

– wipes

– lotion

– extra pacifier

– extra set of clothing

– wet bag

– summer hat

– socks

– burp clothes

– toys

– hot water / tupperware to pour in

– bottle with breast milk

– teething toy

– blanket

– changing pad

– sun lotion

– portable white noise mashine

This looks like a long list and it is quite the amount of things but everything you will need with a baby. I always check twice before leaving the house and so far I haven´t forgotten a thing we needed but it has definitely changed us. No getting out the door last minute or spontaneous here anymor but I wouldn´t want it any other way.
