CHRISTMAS: rum truffles and marzipan potatoes.

hello, my dears! i have started my first christmas bakery session some days ago and today i want to share some of the results with you. this time i'm sharing some photos of my rum truffles and marzipan potatoes with you. i have made them last year for the very first time ever. marzipan potatoes are an all time christmas favourite of my dear brother, so i wanted to try out the recipe to gift him with some of them on christmas eve, and i succeeded. the rum truffles are a bit elaborate, especially if you grate all the chocolate yourself. each time i do that i have to time 30 minutes more for my baking session.

you can find the recipes of the rum truffles and the marzipan potatoes below.

i'm wishing you a wonderful holiday season!

IMPRESSIONS: autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.

i know that autumn has nearly come to an end but i didn't want to share these beautiful photos with you which i have made several days ago while strolling around my neighborhood. the lake is only 5 minutes afoot from my home - a beautiful place of peace and tranquility.

have you already heard of the new online fashion store the design and concept really appealed to my eye and thus i decided to introduce it to you. i have also found a nice selection of clothes and accessoires i want to share with you in today's post.

at the first glance you think that the store is filled up with young streetstyle fashion & the concept (shop, TV ad's and connection to the most influential social channels such as twitter, facebook, youtube and instagram) also seems rather tailor-made for youngsters, but i believe that fashion victims of the generation 25+ will also find a lush, attracting and pleasing selection of fashionable clothings and accessoires. you can realize that while looking at all the great brands offered there: marc o'polo (i have fallen in love with this brand many years ago), valentine gauthier for vila (beautiful colour blocking styles sharp patterns), desigual (extraordinary, brash, colourful coats you HAVE to fall for), tommy hilfiger (still in love with the preppy look), little mistress (wonderful formal dresses and fairy styles), MANGO, french connection, joop & many others. also offers the opportunity to register online and choose favourite styles, colours and so on so that whenever you visit the store, you will be provided with your personal, individual fashion feed showing you only apparel and accessoires pleasing your eye - i believe that this is a very innovative concept. what do you think?

i hope you like the selection of my favourite styles from
and now it's up to you: what do you think about the store concept, presentation and of course, selection of clothes?
what do you think about the feed concept?
which styles would be your favourites?

OUTFIT: it's easy being with you - sacred simplicity.

the header of todays outfit ( ... featuring my beloved riveted glasses & chanel necklace, purple silk blouse & midi vintage skirt from mummy, a yellow pop of colour clutch and oh so high boots) is one of the beautiful lines in the song 'rather be' by clean bandit. this song is pure beauty. i truly love the statement of this song, speaking of unconditional love: love in it's purest form. 

just have a look at the lyrics & feel them. these words are pure poetry:

i love it when musical harmonies go along hand in hand with finetuned lyrics, building a symbiosis of love and beauty. this is creativity. this is artistry. this is true love - sacred simplicity.

NEW IN: black is beautiful, butterfly heels, cable knit, gourmand perfumes, foodie stuff & make-up.

hello my dears, today i've got a new haul for you! beautiful (black) clothings from H&M (my very first cape and an elegant basic silk blend woolen shirt) and a blouse which reminded me of the tribute to marimekko collection which has been available in the H&M shops many years ago - maybe you will remember the collection or single pieces when seeing my new blouse in today's new in post. and there are shoes, and gourmand perfumes ... so many beautiful new things for a beautiful life 

what i am most happy about is my new cable knit sweater from zara, which i bought second hand at - i have had a very similar one when i was 15 and i loved it very much. but one day it was so threadbare i couldn't wear it anymore. i have searched for this model ever since and finally some days ago i have found it and i'm nearly permanently wearing it, overly happy
