Icy Winter walk

Winter hasn't arrived yet in Germany but the frozen top of the Fichtelberg still looks like a Winterwonderland! It' all Ice, no snow!

We continued our Advent experience with a visit to the Christmas market in Annaberg - very traditional and a delicious experience.

Winter in Paris?

1-IMG_0276

It's one of my dreams to travel to Paris, France. One day I will fulfill this dream and this would be a look that I could see myself wearing during the winter months. Black and red with a french BĂ©ret. I am practicing my french already, maybe I will be lucky next year!

When wishes come true ...

I wrote about my Winter wishlist last week and it seems like #dearsanta - #dearsally from LongTallSally has decided to grant me some of my wishes. I am so happy with my choices and they fulfill all my needs! The red, white and black look is once again a great combo.

The skirt is a little short for my taste. I like them knee-length, but as I plan on wearing this one with opaque tights only, I can get away with it. It actually opens with that front zipper, which is a little weird at first, but works just fine for me! And Mr.B says it's sexy :)

The jacket is very comfortable and super cool. I really love the feel of the material, the fit is not too tight and it is nice and long. Right now, I won't wear it as a jacket too much as it is so cold outside, but for outings with friends where you go to a place indoors, I can manage with a fleece jacket under it. I can see myself wearing it a lot in Spring and Autumn though!!

These gloves are new and totally awesome. Real leather and the tips of thumb and pointy finger can be used for smartphones - no cold fingers outdoors while using your phone anymore!!

What I love right now - No. 6/2014

Christmas and Winter, two of my favourite times of the year. I am super thrilled that the Advent season has finally begun, still got some Autumn pictures in this collection though, as well!

Hot tea and candle lights! A must during this time of year!

Weekend breakfast with Mr.B - we do have breakfast together every day, but the weekend is so nixe as we got a lot more time to savor in the food!

Fresh flowers are great any time of the year - now changing towards Christmas decoration and fir sprigs.

Drying our chillis. I am not sure when we should eat all of them as they are pretty spicy!

Great tartlets and our new birch candle holders.

DIY - Handmade Christmas gifts

IMG_5206-horz


This year like every year, I try to give thoughtful gifts to friends and family members. I am still working on my presents for this season (still a secret!), but wanted to share my little DIY projects from last Christmas with you!

1.Cookie recipe in a mason jar
I gave this cute little gift to several friends and family members. It is something different and a lot of fun for them as they can decide themselves when they want to enjoy this little gift from us. We gave it to people that enjoy baking and hope they will have fun and think of us while doing it. The recipe is from Frl. Klein and her lovely book "Weihnachten mit Frl.Klein" that I got as a little gift from Mr.B a couple of weeks back.

2. handmade cookies
I always bake a ton of cookies and we give them to grandparents, aunts and uncles that rather eat than bake the cookies. It's a little something even for those people that never want a gift or don't need anything. It's thoughtful and nice to bring something and our cookies are made with love and taste well :) Recipe by Frl. Klein once again (see above) - adapted by me.
This year, my friend J. helped me with the baking and she is also the master with royal icing. The cookies have never looked that good!

Apart from the royal icing and sprinkles, we also made some  double and triple decker cookies with nougat filling. I got the idea from Frl.Kleins second book that I already own since last year! I used the basic cookie recipe and after baking added the nougat in between. Finally I dusted the cookies with cocoa powder.
