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 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?

FOOD: 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!

FOOD: 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
