Direction Spain.

Summer Time
As I’m looking for my flights for this summer I came into the summer spirit and what else is better than creating some lovely beach day outfits on Polyvore.
I love this App so much. This website (also available at the AppStore) offers you the opportunity to shop in million shops around the world. You can choose between the categories of fashion, beauty and home decor and discover thousand of wonderful styles, combinations and gift ideas. You can choose what you are searching for and filter the stuff out your looking for. Also you can already see some combinations of other users for the item. So if you found a wonderful dress for the evening but you have pretty much no clue how to style it, than you can have a look in the upper section and see how you can dress up for a perfect night out! You can also search for your own clothes and get some mix and match ideas for the next date.
Have some creative hours…

What’s going on?

As you may have noticed, there was such a long time no blogpost or Instagram activity. There was a lot going on in the last couple of month.

Christmas. Of course there was this whole christmas thing going on in the pre-christmas time at my family house. This was also one reason I haven’t blogged. Christmas is very personal period of the year where all the family comes together to spend some joyful and merry hours together. We had baking sessions at my grandmas and tones of hot chocolates at our famous movie days to warm up after a long dog walk in the winter wonder land. It’s one of my favorite time a year as you can leave all the stress behind and completely calm down.

Happy New Year everyone! That all your dreams come true!

New Years Eve. Not quite sure what to say more  about this night than it was amazing. Too much food, alcohol,  giant fireworks, clubbing and dancing the night out. First we went to a friend’s house and had delicious self cooked food from my Brazilian friends. I think you can understand why I definitely had too much this evening, but who cares! I won’t tell you about the super delicious and creamy chocolate desserts as I don’t want you to collapse in front of your computer.

School started again and the last 1.5 years of high school have begun. Now we are all working and studying for our final exams. Google was definitely the best supporter trough out the last weeks. The coffee machine had a 24/7 work shift and the local Starbucks shops were financed by me and my friends. But hey, 1 of 3 exam periods are done.

New York 2014

 

United states of America. First on the list is New York again. I think my passion for this unbelievable city is already pretty clear but if you haven’t noticed yet it’s the place my dreams are made of, it’s the place where I fuel up my energy levels every single time, and the place to meet the best people world wide. We are going to life in the beautiful apartment in Harlem again and I can’t wait to share some impressions with you again!

If traveling was free you’d never see me again.

 

Spain. Can’t believe I’m going to meet all my lovely girls again. We went to Oslo the last time and it was the time of my life! They turned from strangers to friends. Can’t wait for summer days at the beach, chocolate for breakfast, wine for dinner and watermelon at the pool. Jealous? I’m sorry!

MUMA – Brazilian Body Tea

IMG_2467

IMG_3453

Hey there,

long time no see and I’m pretty sorry for my absence. Short update about my life will follow the next couple of days!

But first of all I wish you a happy and wonderful New Year 2015! Hope you all had a wonderful night with all your lovelies and enjoyed the time to  the fullest. Let’s take 2015 to another level and achieve something big. Have fun on the way to your goal and try to stay motivated. It’s okay to have a bad day, don’t bash yourself for things going wrong.We are all human beings and that’s what you should remember all the time. No one is perfect! Little advice for the next year. Choose to be happy every single day  and have a wonderful time. Best wishes to all of you from the happy owner of this blog.

One of my New Years resolutions (hopefully it will last longer than 5 weeks this time) was to get more energy, feed my body the right stuff and find the right balance for myself. I’m definitely no supporter of this whole healthy lifestyle as I think we all have just one life so if you crave chocolate, than have some. The right balance for me is between nourishing  your body with the right foods so and regale your soul with your favorite treats.

Fortunately I got the opportunity to try out the new health tea from the brand MUMA. This company supports you on your way to a better and healthier lifestyle.

“In an increasingly busy world, your health can quickly come second best to the lifestyle you put first.”

They sent me their Brazilian Body Tea 14 days Detox Cleanse which comes in a wonderful golden and shiny package filled with 28 individually packed tea bags. You receive 14 to go with your breakfast and 14 to relax at the coach or in bed with a cup of tea.

This tea promotes your detoxification, digestive cleansing and strengthening, antioxidant boosting, energy stimulation and deeper REM level sleep. For the ingredients check out the link below!

The kind of Teatox went pretty good. I felt energized, nourished and somehow lighter than I normally do, no bloating anymore and healthier as well (imagination over here) . I had my cup of tea whilst I had breakfast in the morning and the second one 30 – 45 minutes before I went to bed.

My mornings normally consist of a huge cup of coffee as you may know from my previous blogposts, so I was kind of afraid how I should survive the next 14 days, but trust me its easier than expected!

Love,

Alexa

One day…

As it comes to holiday our typical day routine looks pretty the same everyday! As I already showed you one day of my life at home I thought it is time to present you kind of an update! So here it is, one day in pictures.

Good morning everyone!

Oh and guess what the oatmeal queen has for breakfast as usual? Quakers golden syrup topped with the sweetest raspberries from the farmer’s market near by and a huge cup of my beloved almond milk coffee latte! What is your breakfast tradition and favorite oatmeal topping combinations? 

IMG_2550

Off to the beach like well to be honest everyday! This is what summer time looks like! Tanning, ice cold lemonade, fruits, magazines and cooling down in the water! Summer holiday I fell deeply in love with you.

Getting ready for dinner and having a super delicious and healthy end of the day at a restaurant near the sea side. Had this super yummy appetizer before my ordered Tagliatelle with fish filets in a curry kind of sauce. 

Tomato sauce infused Bulgur with teriyaki grilled chicken and a mint yogurt dip on the side.

So my lovelies, this is the end of a typical calming and sunny day during my lovely trip to one of the most beautiful islands if ever been to.

Have a wonderful time and enjoy every second of this amazing summer! 

What’s in my bag?

As summer finally arrived and we have to pack our bag for the beach I thought I could share with you my typical beach essentials. As it may sound like a quick and easy thing to stuff everything for the beach in one bag, for me it’s a big challenge to pack and organize everything so I do not forget about anything and to be prepared for every situation! I created a little check-list- collage for myself so I will never forget anything again and thought this would be the perfect way to present you my goods.

IMG_5536.PNG
1. Finding the right beach bag isn’t as easy as it may sounds like! For me it is important that I can fit everything easily in so it has to be a huge one but also with some possibilities to organise my stuff inside. So I found my lovely Vanessa Bruno bag in the nude colour tone! It has a little pocket on the inside for phone, keys and little things and is easy to close with a little sipper! As those bags come in all those different colors I’m pretty sure that I’m able to say they are a statement piece for everyone!
2. Magazines and my iPhone are the beach basics and definitely a must! I love just laying on the beach and getting some new inspiration and motivation from all those different magazines! And as you already know I do own a little inflows toon notebook so this has to be in my bag too! One more basic? My iPhone with earphones for some music!
3. Flip flop! Do I have to explain anything? No ? I think we all know these are the go to shoes for very beach day!
4. If it comes to salty water and sandy air skin care is more important than normally ! The skin and lips are getting dry and ask for some cream or lotion! My favorite ones are the eos lip balms and the Victoria secret lotion and body mist I bought in New York earlier! They give your skin what he desires and let it look like a beautiful treated body!
5. Polaroid cameras are one of my favorite things during the summer time! Even if I thing there is no better way to Collect memories just my living the moment end enjoying every second, my second one is to shoot some photos and have a lot of fun while looking at all those stupid faces and poses you did in those moments. Afterwards you can make your own summer collage at home or pin it on your walls!
6. Wallet: ice cream safer!
7. I’d like to bring my favorite white thirst with me all the time we are spending a day the beach. If you have to go to toilet or go and grab some ice cream I like to just throw my top over my bikini and I’m ready to go.
8. Towels? No explanation necessary but you can’t imagine how often I’ve missed them at the beach as I realized I’ve forget the simplest things !
9. Sunglasses! It’s pretty the same as the problem with the perfect beach bag! There are so many different kinds of glasses and finding the right one which suits you perfect and supports brilliantly your facial features is a long search! Round, cat eye, the pilot one? But most importantly you have to look at the protection it offers you! Keep going, there is the perfect glass for everyone of us !
10. Of course beach days won’t be beach days without buying some ice cream on the beach bar near by but you should also bring some little treats with you! To stay hydrated I like to bring some watery fruits like melons with me and also some berries and apples to grab and snack on! And never forget to drink enough water throughout a hot day at the beach! I’d like to put some lemon slices in my water bottle as well! Fresh and fruity!

Beach day

IMG_2357

Wohoo! We finally made it to the sea side and already spend a wonderful beach day with well not as much sun as a beach day normally stays for but I mean we spend the day at the beach and that’s what count! We started in the day with a lovely golden syrup quakers oatmeal topped with tones of super fresh and sweet raspberries from the farmers market near by and of course my favorite creamy coffee! As I took my bubble bath and packed my bag for the beach we were ready to take off. After a short stop at the city on our way before we finally made our way to the beach! As it was a bit too windy to lay down and just tan we decided to take a long and beautiful beach walk (my dog was thankful at all). We went to a restaurant in the dune and rest there for nearly 2 hours just sipping on hot coffee and enjoying the sunny weather. As we head home, took a shower we were ready for dinner at the harbor nearby. We enjoyed a super delicious food plate loaded with tone of super delicious fish pieces, black tiger king pawns, some potato wedges and some delicious herbage baguette on the side. To end up this wonderful day we treated ourself with a delicious chocolaty ice-cream afterwards and fell satisfied in our beds after a long and wonderful beach day.

Finally the luggages are packed, everything is stored in the back of the car and the apartment is ready to be left! Yes, it is travel time again and I’m unbelievable happy to spend some time at the beach again! Really did miss those long sea side evenings with sushi served on a surf board and all those summer rituals! So this is our last dinner before we leave! Steak served on a 300 degrees hot stone with a huge potato stuffed with the best curd cheese I have ever tried and a grilled corn cob on the side! My dish was pretty similar, 2 sweet potatoes instead of the regular one and some more veggies as a side dish! Have a beachy day everyone and enjoy every single summer second! Treat yourself as good as possible and always remember, we only have one life and live for a limited time so don’t waste any second of this wonderful period!

Interior design

As it comes to rainy weather, cold wind and dark sky out side it is time to get creative again! As I showed you in a previous blogpost what I do normally like to do on days like this I though I would go kind of in detail about one of my inspiration categories! Hell yeah I think you can call me interior junkie or freak or what ever describes this unbelievable addiction and love for furniture, colors and their effects and all those wonderful designs and combination possibilities! As I currently just relax in the bathtub enjoying chocolaty bubble bath there is a tone of free time to get creative and to start looking for some new pieces of furniture and some new decoration ideas for my room. As I’m not completely satisfied about my room at the time I though it would be fun having a change and maybe to create a complete new paradise for my self! So I head over to polyvore and some other interior design pages to have a look at their bed and decoration section! In the photo below you can see some of my favorites. Simple, classic and cozy. As I searched for furniture which combined all of these important aspects for me and my room I found all those pieces of wonderful designed furniture. Maybe it helps you to get inspired for some new combinations or pieces which will suit in your room as perfectly as well? If you could recommend some interior pages as well it would be amazing if you could share them with me! Have some cozy and inspiring time everyone!

Rainy Days

IMG_4884.JPG

Hey lovelies, I hope you all started pretty well in a relaxing and calming weekend and already enjoyed the Saturday as much as possible. As it started raining this morning I decided to not be sad about it but to exploit every second I have to stay in bed and create a wonderful home spa day just for myself. Fortunately I bought some new fashion and lifestyle yesterday so i was able to start my cozy day in bed with a huge almond coffee and a warm and extra sweet quaker oatmeal with some cinnamon! Sounds pretty much like a winter day with snow and the mood to stay in bed, and to be honest with you it felt like this too! But I really do love those kind of days too even if it’s summer! As I showered myself, pedi and manicured my nails a started to create some new pages in my inspiration book. I love this kind of activity quiet much and I think there could be nothing better than laying in bed with the most comfy pajama pants, sipping on a delicious hot chocolate and getting some new interior, fashion and lifestyle inspirations. Hope you all treated yourself as good as I did and had a creative weekend, too! ♡

Salad Nights

Last night we had a  ‘Salad-night’ out  at our favorite place in the last couple of months. They are known for their (not as big as maybe expected) salad creations section. After a long and exhausting day of work and tones  of unpacked cartoons full filled with the new collection of clothes and trying out some new combinations for the following seasons, a fresh and fruity salad was the perfect dinner. I enjoyed my greens to the full in a creation paired with some freshly picked strawberries, grilled salmon and a unbelievable delicious dressing existing of lime juice, honey and oil. As we watched the sunset from our favorite terrace place everything seemed to be perfect for one moment. Delicious food, sunset and the end of the week. This was the perfect start into a long, calming and cozy weekend. Afterwards I went home and completed this long day with a whole pint of my favorite peanut butter ice-cream and some chocolate bites. This girl can’t go to bed before she got her cravings satisfied! Enjoy your 48 hours of free time and better eat your chocolate treats cause that’s the only way to defend them from the chocolate monster! ♡
