Summer time is perfect for inviting friends and spend the time out in the backyard or at your dining area! As far as our outdoor living space, we are not finished yet but working on it like crazy to get things organized and planned and it will soon be revealed on my blog (the outdoor furnitures have arrived and are so beautiful, can´t wait to show you guys).

For me, when inviting friends or family, I want to make everything look pretty and inviting and IT makes so much more fun decorating food or beverages on dishes you find pretty or are in your favorite colors – to have a beautiful setting is KEY, haha. One of my favorite colors for kitchen accessories or dishes is white, grey and turquoise and you´ve probably already noticed my obsession on my instagram account, if you follow me. So it is no NEWS that I fell immediately in love with the nordic touch design of the dishes and tableware which I received a few weeks ago by the beautiful online store called der karierte hund.

Der karierte Hund, an online shop, which was founded by Bettina two years ago, offers beautiful selected home goods and Bettina loves to pick out her items from various fairs and exhibitions! She only offers items in her online shop what she would also love to see in her home because to feel comfortable in your own home is an important point for her – for me as well, I love to be at home and feel comfortable! Also when I received the package it was so lovingly packed AND the material of the packagings are made out of recyclable paper!!

ALSO, and I am sure you don’t want to miss this, to celebrate their two years after founding, der karierte Hund offers a discount of 22%!! on all items (except for books and articles on sale) until July 9th 2017!

Here, you´ll find the products which I showed you in my pictures above:

handmade glasses with little bubbles inside, hight 14 cm

the handmade mugs out of stoneware, the mugs are quite robust (don´t they show a perfect nordic touch?)

galvanized metal tray, diameter 38 cm (only a few more left so hurry)

*what I also love is the matching carafe to the glasses

*also have to show you the beverage dispenser

If you are interested on how I prepare my matcha chai latte which I usually drink up to two to three times per week, like a tradition and some me-time, leave in the comments below and I write you my easy peasy recipe. 

I hope with this post you found some inspiration maybe for your next barbecue party and in case you have any questions I would love to read from you. 

xo, Sabrina

One of my most frequently asked question is how I style my hair so I thought it would be good to write a whole blog post about my hair style routine.

When it comes to my hair I am always concerned to damage it because it took me so long to get there where I am right now without using any extensions (have never worn some by now). I am also a big fan of using products without sulfates and this now since years – I can highly recommend this to you to try it out because since I am doing so my hair structure has improved so much! Of course, it takes time and the first times using products without sulfates the hair doesn´t feel that good and it was way more difficult to comb through BUT it will improve, believe me! When you follow me on my Instagram you have probably noticed that I love to wear my hair either naturally (have natural locks) or I like to curl it and get some nice curls in it! One also new trend is to wear the hair straightened so I am more than excited to show you two of my favorite hair style products when it comes to curl and straighten my hair!

A few weeks ago I started using the Philipps MoistureProtect Straightener which I received by notino.de, an online shop on which you can find over 55.000 products from 1500 brands out of Europe and the whole world. If you should not be satisfied with an article you bought you can return it within 60 days! and as they don´t have a warehouses the products will be shipped immediately – how comfortable this is because if you crave about a product you don’t want to wait for a long time, right :-). But now let´s come to the BEST part of notiono.de that they help people in need for example abandoned children, mommies with difficulties or very sick children – how exemplary they act and you can contribute by shopping on their platform!

Now to the Philipps MoistureProtect Straightener, how beautiful it looks with the white and golden finish?! Just with the look it received the Red Dot Design Award, WOW! It is quite easy in hand and the sensor technology protects the moisture of your hair while using it. There are three adjustable temperature settings and the sensor diagnoses your hair 30 times per second which will protect it from major damage! Make sure to go over your wisp in one flow and don´t stop your iron otherwise your hair could break – what I do is to go over my wisp once and after that comb through one more time and go over it again.  The floating plate really goes easily over your hair and it will look so shiny and healthy – I just love the result! The temperature which I used this time was 175.

It is a high quality product but in my opinion worth to invest every penny because if your hair looks good, you look and feel good and nothing worst than damaged hair!

For my hair style routine and after the use of a straightener or curler I love to use the oil by Nuxe. When doing curls I recommend you just to add some drops of oil on your hand and use it on the tips of your hair in order to make the curls last longer. Notiono offers a few of the Nuxe oils but I chose this one as you can also use this on your face or even body – don´t have to note that it is also a perfect attendant for a travel weekend as this product is so reversible. If you use this oil in your hair it will look shiny but not greasy which is very important to me. A few times per week, I also use it by night with my regular skin night time routine, sometimes just the pure oil or if you think you need an extra portion of care mix it under your moisturizer. It is also ideal to say goodbye to dry lips and it is a good lip primer as well when using bold lipsticks! As I have a quite sensitive and dry skin, it is a good partner after taking a shower to put some oil on your elbows and feet as well and your skin will feel super soft and nourished!

If  you have any more questions concerning these two products or if I left a question regarding my hair style routine open, please feel free and write me in the comments below or by DM.

ALERIN – ORGANIC BABY WEAR

A few days ago I did an unpacking on my instagram account on which I informed you that I received a cute package by the Danish brand Alerin. If you follow my profile on instagram you probably already know that I love love love cute baby stuff for my Emma Rose and even more if I know they have a good background concerning their production and origin.

Alerin was founded by Paloma and she tries to use organic materials, free of harmful substances, whenever possible and that gives me a good feeling as an always concerned mommy. Further more, environmental protection concerns all of us and to contribute in little things like that counts! What I also do have to point out is that the Alerin products are ethically made in Spain by local Spanish designers and craftsmen and I REALLY appreciate such a work which came together with a lot of work in advance by Paloma!

Emma loves to wear shoes, to take them on and off alllll time long :-). On the pictures above Emma wears the Mary Janes and can we please just talk about how gorgeous they are? The cute little details on the front of the shoes and this pink leather – I am a sucker for pink! They are handmade! and the mold inside shapes the feet perfectly.

On the picture above Emma wears a hair clip with a large bow and it has the color beige but is also available in a few more shades. When Emma was a newborn I loved to put her headbands on, I was like crazy with it, we had them in almost every color, I know :-). Since two or three months she refuses to wear any of them but still let me put on her hairclips or hair ties or hats. And of course, concerning hair clips, we already have a large selection of colors to match her clothes – it is just a girls thing and I love to have little girl :-).

So in case you have any questions concerning the products I would love to hear from you in the comments below or per direct message.

WEDDING WEEKEND

As probably most of you already know through my instagram we had a blast at the wedding weekend of a very good friend of mine! All the loving details, the weather was perfect (during the day it was quite warm but in the evening it cooled off but was warm enough to be outside) and we had a lot of dancing during the evening. You probably also know this feeling when you feel so happy of someone you love that the love has been found and he or she had her absolutely dream wedding  – it was way too gorgeous!

I love my Elisabetta Franchi dress which is unfortunately already sold out but I will try to link you some similar ones below. As for my shoes I decided to wear sandals as the wedding startet quite early in the afternoon and I wanted to feel comfortable as chasing my little toddler is no fun in high heels ;-). I will link you some cute similar sandals as well as mine are already sold out.

What I wore:

NURSERY REVEAL

I am so happy and excited to finally share Emma Rose´s NURSERY since we moved into our house in December 2016 last year!

In my last blog post I already showed you some of her nursery items in our flat in which we lived while we built our house and it has always been a big big dream of mine to plan my future child´s nursery. Ok, which mom doesn’t ;-).

As a design I chose the colors pink, gold and white and added some feather elements to it as it makes everything lighter. You can read all the infos and my opinion regarding the furniture here. During the last couple of months this room came more and more together and I loved to pick out unique items in which I felt immediately in love at first sight. It was so much fun to me to plan her room as I love details and wanted this room to be just perfect. What you don’t see in those pictures, Emma has a separate cupboard out of this room (it is right across from the door) in which we store things like bedding, clothes, shoes, baby stuff, books and a LOT of toys. Every day being in this room I feel so happy as it turned out how I imagined it to myself and for sure it will go on growing as it is normal while babies grow up. There is also some place left for some touch ups but as I said before a home grows and I love how it is right now!

Here I listed you our baby items:

Wrap chest, bed & armchair Märchenwelt Kinderzimmer

Changing mat Märchenwelt Kinderzimmer (what I also love here)

Lamp ananas Little Roomers

Unicorn Newbornmusthaves

Teether Loulou Lollipop

Diapers Lillydoo (go to “search” on my blog in order to see my review)
