I know, I know, I have been a bad blogger this year. There was just so much going on.
I started a new blog and promise to keep it up to date. My focus on topics has changed a little bit, but I am sure you will still enjoy it.
Hope to see you all on
I am a big fan of Emily´s blog Cupcakes and Cashmere and it belongs to my daily reads. So of course, I was more than excited when she announced that she was writing her book and couldn’t wait for its publication. Thanks to my granny I even got that book way earlier than I expected 🙂
So enough talking. lets come to the serious question: Is it as good as her blog????
Emily divided her book in four sections: Spring, summer, fall and winter. Every chapter deals with seasonal style, beauty, at home and food and entertaining.
Sadly a lot of content is just from Emily´s blog and as a daily reader not really new to me. The pictures are definitely gorgeous, but I was hoping for some more original content.
Some of her articles are also a bit… lame for someone who is into this kind of stuff. The article about ‘blow drying your hair’ or ‘creating the perfect playlist’ seem to be more than obvious to me.
There definitely are some great tips: I am really bad with making curls, but with her tip it was quit easy and didn’t look like I ironed my hair and I can’t wait to bake her yummy looking berry cake.
So in the end: It is a great book for pictures, but I am not too sure if I would recommend buying it. The book is also quit small, so it also isn’t a pretty coffee table eye-catcher. Read the blog and you get the same. Nevertheless, I love Emily, but Lauren Conrad’s ‘Style’ was much more informative and I can’t wait for her next book ‘Beauty’ coming out soon.
This week is so special for me. My brother arrived from Germany and we will spend the next six weeks together. It is always great to see your family and I appreciate the time we spend together a lot more since I am living at the other side of the world.
His arrival also means that the next six months will be packed with trips. we will sound a weekend at the Sunshine Coast, meet my parents in Melbourne at the end of August and spend a weekend in a beautiful beach town called Byron Bay.
I will also travel to Sydney in October, my favourite place in Australia as I spend the best time of my life here and I will go on a big trip at the end of November. When I will return to Australia Christmas and New Years are not too far away. The time is flying 🙂
Of course my mum send me some amazing presents with my brother and I would love to share them with you guys
A cute little heart-shaped box with mascara, eye shadows and lip balm
A late birthday present from my brother. A gorgeous bag for my mobile
The Cupcake and Cashmere book. I love Emily´s blog and will let you know if I can say the same about her book
Nailpolish everywhere. The question is just: which one am I wearing first???
A beautiful new ring with a big brown stone. Mum just knows my taste

Here is my next round of my personal ‘happy makers’ of the week

Here is my inspiration for the last days:
Enjoying the last days of sun with a good book on my balcony
Expanding my collection of rings. I just love the big black stone which covers most of my hand
A new notebook for my new job. I can think a lot better writing things done with a pen and I am a big fan of to do lists, plus a little style book for all my new must have items
Yep gloves. While most of you get their summer dresses ready I have to start thinking about winter. Love the colour and the woollen pattern as it reminds me of my childhood. My grandma was knitting everything for me and my family
Just admit it: In times of emails and text messages a letter can make such a big difference. I always get excited to find one in my mailbox. With my birthday just around the corner I receive a lot more now 🙂
