Casual Saturday #5….


….

Good morning and happy Saturday,

 (post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affilate Links-not sponsored)
I am really happy today cause the temperatures had been in the high twenties the whole week which means sandals and dresses as much as I can wear. 

The next week means spare-time for me and Florian is still at home (until the 31st) so we planned lots of fun things to do. We planned on visiting a famous lake near Munich and a botanical garden with a chinese inspred temple. 

Yesterday we had our first garden party on our patio. After setting up our furniture and getting everything ready outside we officially opened our patio. It was a really nice evening, having a BBQ with friends, good food, drinks and good weather. That is how I like my Summer evenings.
I didn´t have too much work upront. The flowers where made by a local florist and I only had to “cook” the salads. 

We didn´t really do so much cause I had some migraine episodes all over the week. Really bad ones. I especially hate when they are starting at night cause you can´t prevent the pain before it gets really bad so that you wake up from. 

On another note I now have a shopstylecollective widget on the bottom of most of my posts which makes shopping for you a lot easier but I still have linked all the items in the text too.

Food: 
So because I was ill most of the week I didn´t try anything new or really cooked as much as usual and nothing special at all.
But I made a “Bellinie cake” with peaches and champagne yesterday. It is one of my favorites cakes. It is pretty simple to make but it takes some time to get all the ingredients together.



And the other foods I made are the salds for the BBQ. They aren´t as simple as salad may sound.

 – an Italian noodle salad with pesto

– a gnocchi salad with parmesan and basil

– a greek salad


 (this cute oil & vinegar set just arrived in time from amazon)


and another dish I made are baked potatoes with bacon, cheese and leek.
Got this one from Instagram and it is simple, delcicous and makes a perfect side dish for a BBQ.

Reading:
I got the latest Instyle magazine and there are some amazing pieces like off-shoulder shirts, lace shirt and pretty sandals.

I also found a new blog (well, not new but new to me). It is about lifestyle, food and home decor. The beautiful lady is called Monika Hibbs and her tablescapes are insane. So so pretty.



 Shopping:
I hadn´t been interested in much this week but I am eyeing with these pink block heels sandals from even&odd. Arent´t they pretty and the color is so beautiful. Perfect for Summer. 

Also really pretty is this shopper from LYDC and this off-shoulder top from Vero Moda. 

Things are pink over here this week.


TV:
In fact there wasn´t a thing I watched this week. To much to do. Too tired. I wanted to be outside the few hours I had left in the evenig as the weather is so nice.



 Home: 
My bedroom tour post went up on Wednesday. You can read it here.

Thanks for stopping by. 


Take care. See you.

Spring Cravings…..


….

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

with
the first sunrays and the first flowers blooming I started to make
things new. I redecorated my living room and my kitchen in pastells like
rose, yellow, mint, lavender. I am totally into this colors and also
flower and gingham patterns. Everything mixed with white is so springish and of course there are lots of fashion options as well.

Mit
den ersten Sonnenstrahlen und den ersten blühenden Blumen hab ich
angefangen so einiges neu zu machen. I habe das Wohnzimmer und die Küche
neu dekoriert in wunderschönen Pastelltönen wie Mintgrün, Gelb, Rosa
und Flieder. Immer am Anfang des Frühlings bin ich total begeistert von
all den Farben die die Natur erzeugen kann und das wirkt sich auch auf
meine Garderobe aus. Mir gefallen dann die ganzen Farben und blumigen
Muster zu gut. Hier sind ein paar meiner Frühlings Must-Haves. Welche
gefallen euch am besten ?

Above are some of my Spring cravings I had an eye on since they started coming out – still at the end of the Winter but just in time for the first thoughts of Spring. The Coach bag already found its way into my dressing room 🙂

Thanks for stopping by. 
Take care. See you.

My top 5 restaurants in Regensburg….

Hi dolls,

we all love to go out for dinner (I really do – because I like to cook extraordinary things which means a lot of dirty dishes) so here is a recap of my top 5 restaurants in Regensburg.
Florian and I usually go out for dinner once a week (Wednesday is our date night) and we always take another restaurant to try out new food from other countries or restaurants which just openend.

So today I am showing my top 5 restaurants in our area to you where we love to go over and over again. 





#1
Kullmann´s Diner
 Best burger in Town

This restaurant really defines a restaurant with great American food for me. The inventory is reproduced like the restaurants from the 60´s with red leather chairs and bar stools. They offer the classics like burgers, sandwiches and chicken wings but they also have a variety on different steaks, lots of delicous salads and many options for vegetarians.
I can recommend the:

– Tribeca Diner Sandwich (this was mine)
– Kullman´s Roadside burger (this was Florian´s) – both served with delicious curly fries.

 #2
California Kitchen
Beach House

In my imagination this really could be a cool californian beach restaurant where the surfer crowds stop by for lunch or dinner. Is has this wooden and rustic but still comfortable furnishing. The kitchen is light and mexican infused. They got different kinds of salads, chicken teriyaki, burritos or quesadillas filled with vegetables or beef and homemade sauces and burgers as well.


I can definitely recommend the:

– Caesar chicken saldad. The chicken is so juicy and the dressing tastes really great.
– Old fashioned burger with extra cheese. They have a special burger bun only made for their restaurant and this is so good. Also the sauce on the burger is just created for this one. The whole combination tastes awesome.

#3
Sandwiches and Ale
Marple & Stringer


An apple cider, a wooden rustic inventory and delicious fish & chips – that´s what it takes to visit a good english pub. I first was a little sceptical about this one cause the spot is tiny and pretty old and I haven´t tried English food before but we have eaten there many times since the opening. It is a nice and sometimes welcome change.

I can recommend the:

– Fish & chips with 3 different sauces – great to dip
– Pulled pork sandwich – tender meat, a crispy fresh bun, cole and pickles and of course a perfect smoked BBQ sauce


#4
Tiziano Ristorante-Bar
The best Italian restaurant I have ever been to

A small and romantic Italian restaurant with dimmed light and super modern interieur. This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the whole world. The food is so delicous everytime we go there. Usually we are only heading there for a special ocassion since it is a pricey restaurant but this is totally worth it and they are dog friendly. 
(Booking a table is highly recommended – they are always full)

I can recommend the:

– Baby octopus with vegetables (spiced so well with garlic and herbs) and the octopus is so soft – just on point. My absolute all time favorite.


– Spaghetti scampi with scampis and a sauce with lots of garlic.
– Fettuccelle mare e monti with zucchini, scampis and tomatoe sauce.
 –  Fettuccine guilietta e romeo is pasta with mushrooms and beef. I don´t like mushrooms at all but this tasted so so good. 


Florian ate all the pasta. He is trying out a different one each time we go there but I am always picking out the things I want to try. 🙂

#5
Weltenburger
Homecooking interpreted tasty and new

This restaurant is probably the nearest to the Bavarian food traditions. They serve anything you could think about when you are looking for this direction. 
The furnishing is rustic and old-fashioned but this is typical for this kind of restaurants.


They cook traditionally food but with a modern twist. For example I ordered a double-burger and the bun was made of bavarian pretzel dough. So really cool and it tasted great. 

I can recommend the:
– Weltenburger,  double Burger made of a pretzel bun with french fries and a tasty barbeque dip
– Weltenburger Beercutlet, a cutlet with lots of fried onions and fried potatoe slices
– Schwabenpfandl, little pieces of pork meat in a sauce made of sourcream, broth and mushrooms and some kind of noodles

 They are brewing their own beer which you can also order.



There are many more good restaurants but these are definitely my top 5 I would recommend to anyone and visit anytime.


Maybe when you are visiting my area you can try out one or two. Feel free to contact me if you would like some information.

Thanks for stopping by. 

Take care. See you.
