Happy New Year everybody! I hope you had wonderful holidays and wish you all the best for 2018. The last weeks whizzed by in a flurry, so my favourites list is a bit shorter this month. I hope you enjoy it anyways 🙂 Continue reading
One of my favourite Christmas activities is – of course – baking Christmas biscuits! Here in Southern Germany, we have a tradition of baking a whole range of different varieties throughout December, putting them all into little plastic bags (usually dotted with golden stars), and giving them to friends and family during Christmas gatherings. It’s like an unwritten law. You just have to participate. Continue reading
Yes, I’m back with ANOTHER garland DIY. After taking down my little “Mini Tassel Garland” while decorating for Christmas, the place it had been hanging on the wall just looked so empty. I remembered that I had picked up several rolls of festive washi tape at the craft store recently, so I decided to make this little festive bunting garland! Continue reading
Drinking a flavourful and delicious cup of hot chocolate is one of the best things about the cold season. As the days grow darker and the weather gets nastier, it is just the best drink to enjoy on a cosy winter evening in your comfy sweater, reading your favourite book. Continue reading
I recently went Christmas shopping and guess what happened…drawn to the warm and spicy smell emanating from my local Lush store, I ended up buying a couple of presents for myself! To my defence, it was pretty cold and rainy and I was freezing… Continue reading

For many people, Christmas is the most important holiday and the most joyful time of the year. We start preparing early for the big day and indulge in all the heart-warming Christmas activities such as searching for gifts and baking Christmas biscuits.
Last week, we went to the Christmas market in Basel, Switzerland. As a newbie to photography, it was quite difficult for me to take pictures there and I wasn’t sure whether I should publish them here or not. However, it was such a happy and fun evening that I wanted to share them anyway 🙂
It’s already the second weekend in December and that special Christmas feeling is spreading warm in our tummies. Golden lights and the smell of mulled wine and waffles surround us on every trip to the city. But between all the baking and searching for presents, I think it’s important to find some time for ourselves and simply unwind. These painted candle holders are very easy and quick to make. You only need a couple of glass containers, gold acrylic paint and a small brush. They also make unique and very personal Christmas gifts!
