Wintery Leather Mix

1-IMG_1891

I really love my winter coats, especially my red one, but I do appreciate a good faux leather jacket as well. During the cold winter days, I rarely get to wear this beauty, but I try to add it as an accessory to my looks. This time I combined it with this leather and cotton pencil skirt. A double faux leather look with burgundy details. Lovin it!

Oriental Winter look

1-IMG_9941-001

When the weather gets colder, I start wearing pants all the time to work and neglect my skirt a little. I wear my pencil skirts with tights sometimes, but really totally forget about my maxi skirts. They skip my radar, but actually should be high on my favourites list as they give a little more coverage. My ones are actually floor-length versions (took me a while to find them), but with the fabric in mind, I try not to wear them when it is snowing or it's muddy and rainy. When we do get some sunshine, I will try to wear them more often this winter! This look is one of my favourites with my oriental printed maxi. Very comfortable for a day of running errands.

30th birthday look and dinner

1-IMG_2084

This was the look that I wore on my birthday at work and later for my dinner with my family. Only think I changed were my shoes for the night. This dress is a thrifting find. It is from my favourite brand for tall women, but I found it in an online sharing site. Good prize and it will definitely be one of my favourites for the summer!

Mr.B knew about my love for rose gold jewelry and got me this beautiful Thomas Sabo necklace with an infinity symbol for my birthday. Works beautifully also with my new watch from Skagen (not pictured here - see the previous post)!

Dinner at my favourite Spanish restaurant. We went there that night with my family - mom, dad, grandparents and my sister with her boyfriend. It was a lovely and delicious evening!

Birthday Tea Party

1-IMG_2171

As this year was my 30th birthday (see my look here), I wanted to make something extra special for my party. I invited my favourite girlfriends and we spent the afternoon making bathing pralinés. Later we had a wonderful tea party at my home and I decorated the place in turquoise (my favourite color for my livingroom), white, copper and also added some sparkles!

The candle holder is a DIY project and the dishes are vintage from my great-grandmother.

I instantly loved these owl muffins when I saw them first on another blog. The recipe is by Sanella and they really were the eyecatchers of my party. All the girls took pictures!

I bought all these ornaments at IKEA, the small round ones are from the Christmas collection and the bigger ones are in their permanent collection. Love them and they are still hanging right now, a week after the party! Definitely will reuse them for other parties. Great investment!

I also made some apple roses as they really look pretty on the dessert table - they need a little more preparation, but I used ready made dough, which saved me some time. The recipe is from my new baking book Fräulein Klein lädt ein.

Wintery decorations. The pegs are a DIY project and the candle holders are from NanuNana. Currently, you can buy similar ones at H&M Home.
