NEW IN: sheinside, wedges, colours & crowns.



i've got a new haul for you ♥ i have made quite a bulk buying at sheinside a few weeks time ago and some days ago i have received my long awaited package with loads and loads of beautiful apparel & accessoires ... 

i have also bought a dolce & gabbana inspired golden crown for another shooting which should take place soon and a pair of second hand H&M wedges - my old pair got broken last year and i loved them so much because they were unbelievably comfy despite their height, thus i simply wanted to have exactly the same pair of shoes and fortunately i have found it at kleiderkreisel.de and bought it immediately XD 

... well i must admit that in terms of shoes and make-up i'm quite oldfashioned. i stick to tried & trusted items ... until they get broken ... or expire XD
how about you?

what do you think of my new precious wardrobe loves?

WEDDING DAYS: bridal bouquets.



the right choice of a beautiful and fitting bridal bouquet is essential for your absolute dream wedding. it should match the colour of your accessoires and the bridal decoration in the church and at the location where your wedding feast will take place. this will make your wedding perfect. 

my mother chose a green and white bridal bouquet when she had married at the beginning of the year. it was a bouquet made of calla flowers, white roses, a white organza ribbon band and green accents and thus matched with the floral decoration in the restaurant where we celebrated afterwards.



today i show you some very lovely bridal bouquets which i have found at tbdress, an onlineshop selling wedding and evening dresses and the fitting accessoires.



what do you think of my little selection and which picks would be your favourites? 


all the dresses shown above, and many more can be found at http://www.tbdress.com/.
if you want to see the whole selection of colourful wedding dresses, you can find it here: http://www.tbdress.com/Cheap-Wedding-Flowers-7930/

SHOPPING LOVE: stylesyoulove.de.


do you already know stylesyoulove.de? this is a website where you can browse through loads and loads of beautiful items such as clothes, accessoires and jewellery from many different onlineshops like ASOS, NET-A-PORTER, yoox, zalando and many others without having to browse through every single shop. i think it's a great and time saving way to get to know many new and beautiful items and to pick out your personal favourite choice. but it's not only a shopping portal, but also a very nice community where you can style your own outfits and put them online and share them with others. 



today i want to show you a little selection of my favourite jewellery chosen on stylesyoulove.de - i have put them in different categories, called 'candy crush' (showing different jewellery styles in cute candy colours), 'pink power' (showing different beautiful and pink styles), 'beastly beautiful' (showing animal inspired jewellery), 'cute'n'crazy' (showing nerd and kawaii inspired jewellery), 'diva glamour' (showing brash design and opulence), 'dreamy design details' (showing extraordinary and modern design jewellery), 'for the love of coco' (showing jewellery with pearls in black, white and nude which coco chanel would have loved), 'heart of gold' (showing different kinds of goldtoned heart shaped jewellery), 'modern romantics' (showing flowery and romantic jewellery styles) and 'pure beauty' (showing puristic and artful pieces of jewellery).

my favourite labels in the jewellery category were david aubrey, kenneth jay lane (their jewellery is always among my all time favourites), kenneth cole, nach bijoux and la formiga.

FOOD LOVE: cake pop maker test.





lately i have tested my new cake pop maker. i was very interested in the possibility to make cake pops much easier than in 'the traditional way' which indeed has been a very time-consuming and tedious activity ... the first time i have ever made cake pops i worked in the kitchen for at least FOUR HOURS - no joke! oO 

well i haven't expected that it would be this costly in terms of time because if i had known that before i wouldn't have tried out the recipe, but rather would have bought the cake pop maker much earlier XD ... the cake base does taste a bit different than when you're making a real cake which you have to destroy afterwards to form it into cake balls with marmalade as the base for the final cake pops. it tastes more simple, let's say 'basic'. the taste is less sophisticated in the end but they taste very delicious nonetheless. and it's a very nice and expeditious way to make your own cake pops - i have finished mine in 1 1/2 hours, which is QUITE a time saving, as compared to my first try!

NEW IN: magazine clutch.




not long ago i have received my long-awaited and personalized magazine clutch which dear lary from 'a mint loving unicorn' had crafted for me earlier. she's also a fashion blogger and also very much into DIY, just like me, and she's also tailoring and designing her own dresses - thus a really creative mastermind. i was so happy when i received the clutch because it's simply my style: brash, individual and very fashionable! ... i also like the CC symbol in the middle very much - as if she had known that i cherish chanel to bits 

guess i will take it out soon - can't wait for that :)
... and what do you guys think of my new MagBag?

FOOD LOVE: homemade butterfly cookies with fondant.




aren't these cookies looking lovely and absolutely delicious? i must admit that i have baked these cookies a very long time ago - last year. and i simply forgot to put it online. forgive me that! sometimes there's simply no time and i've got loads of work to do ... sometimes i'm very stressed and life has a quite firm grip - sometimes negatively spoken, mostly positive. and now there's a time when most of the things seem positive. there are exciting new experiences waiting for me and life isn't always simply about being safe and sound, but about being courageous and to see what's going on in this wide wide world - and maybe to find something more beautiful and bigger than anything you've had before. so this life is about being lived - and it wants to be lived, because of all the beautiful things that happen on your journey through it. preserve these memories, experiences and thoughts in your mind, your head, your soul.

have a wonderful week 

p.s. i made these cookies out of butter cookie dough and added fondant to it which i previously coloured green. i can tell you guys that this is really taking up time - but it's worth it, because those cookies were really mouthwateringly delicious - so if you want/need the recipe, feel free to write me!

OUTFIT: all you need is love ... but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.





... but too much chocolate isn't good, too. i had to endure that the last days because there was way too much easter chocolate and yes, if it comes to chocolate truffles, bunnies and pralinés i simply cannot say no - which isn't very healthy if you're lactose intolerant. XD but here's something nice: my new chandelier for the living room has arrived and it looks fantastic! also we will visit my new flat again today to see what still needs to be done and today we'll also visit the DIY market to buy wall paint - pink, petrol blue and white (it's gonna be legendarily colourful XD), and also some black paint for a tree which i want to paint into my bedroom and some golden paint for lovely flowers which will grow upon it, and also some white paint for porcelain vases which need a new colour and look. ahhh can't wait - i'm so curious :D

ART: matt sartain.






today i want to introduce you to another fantastic contemporary artist and photographer - matt sartain (click). i think the overwhelmingly beautiful pictures speak for themselves. i especially love his travelling woman and the levitating man (the latter reminds me somewhat of one of my favourite artists, caspar david friedrich, although sartains works are much less melancholic or dark).

Louis Vuitton Torte mit High Heels

Designer Label Cakes, Cookies & CupcakesDesigner Label Cakes, Cookies & Cupcakes

look at what beauty, innovation and creative talent i have found in the depths of the internet - a very good and lovely friend of mine and a fashion freak just like me sent me the links some days ago and i'm so happy she did so. i truly LOVE cakes and cookies and designer beauties and these are ... a must see for everyone who simply feels the same. aren't these details breathtaking? those double c's and the monogram canvas of the louis vuitton bags and the true perfection of the louboutin heel and michael kors bag ... guess i have fallen in love. and i also guess that i would not have the courage to eat those cakes because they are way too beautiful ... what do you think?

XD

INTERIOR LOVE: interior ideas for a colourful home ♥




since i will move into my new flat soon i'm in search of nice interior ideas to create my very own and perfect feel good place. 

i already have some ideas in my mind - i'm especially in need of many colours. i would love to have a petrol blue coloured walls in my bedroom with a floral bedding, many photo frames and vintage furniture and a freehandedly painted black tree with golden blossoms and a living room featuring baroque and pink accents in addition with white and brown wooden furniture. 
the kitchen will get a nice country style in addition with shabby chic details (and i already have a very nice kitchen in prospect, with white furnishing and lovely golden handles ♥). i also would love to put some white ornamentally decorated outdoor furniture for the balcony. 

oh, can't wait to proceed working on my new dream flat and to eventually move in ♥♥♥

today i want to show you some very lovely inspiration for a colourful and individual home. 

how do you like my finds and which would be your favourites? ♥
