Casual Saturday #4....


....


Hello and happy Saturday everybody,
 (post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affilate Links-not sponsored)
We are preparing for mothers day over here so I don´t know where to start cause in fact we didn´t do anything else important.The week was short for both of us. Florian only worked until Tuesday and I did until Thursday. We had several appointments so it was easier to take days off. 

I had line dance on Monday and on Tuesday so nothing else happened there. On Wednesday we where invited to Florian´s cousins birthday party. Thank god it was a warm day and still warm in the evening cause you can´t attend an outside party with bad weather. I got a Coastal Scents Go Cairo palette and a flower bouquet as a present. You can never go wrong with flowers and I knew that she liked make-up and I got her this L´oréal eyeshadow palette in nude beige. The nude shades are a staple for every girls make-up drawer. 


The yearly fun fair started yesterday and I wanted to go so bad because I need to get updated and restocked on new spices. They have a little wooden store where they sell the best spices I have found so far. The problem is that they attend only two times a year so I have to know upfront what I need. 
 I ended up buying a lot. 

 House:
We set up our patio furniture last weekend and I love how it turned out (plannig a separate post about it soon). We got lots of fresh and colorful flowers. Now Summer can finally come. Now the only thing I am still looking are deckchairs. I already have a small table from Polywood. A red one, so I am not quite sure if I take two red or two grey deckchairs.



Food:
I only tried out two new recipes. I was curious about the egg roll in a bowl recipe I have seen so many times all over social media. So I had to try out this one cause who doesn´t love egg rolls.

The second one are baked burritos. I have read about it some time ago and with all the Cinquo de Mayo posts it came back in mind. You fill your burritos with all the ingredients you want to have in them and then you put them into a baking dish. Sprinkle some grated cheese on top (you can also use cheddar but I wanted gouda cheese) and put it into the oven for about 30 minutes (or just how you like it - I want a real crispy cheese crust). Really simple and so so delicious.

Shopping:
I have been eyeing with a few things but I am still not quite sure about it. It would be this bag. I love it but who needs a black one in Summer. 
Another thing I have been thinking about is this pair of studded heels. I already have the baby blue one and I like wearing them so much.


                 
So here is what I ordered this week. A bikini with a palm tree print and I am so looking forward to this. It is the ultimate Summer pattern for me (sorry flamingos) and a beach blanket for our Summer vacation. It is a round one so I am pretty excited how it turns out.
Also two off-the-shoulder dresses, an orange one with short sleeves and a gingham one with long sleeves. 


TV: 
There wasn´t really anything this week I was interested in. I have seen that Game of Thrones is going to be continued in July so there´s this. I have watched Peter Pan (the Disney movie) and I still love it. It is my favorite Disney movie back when I was a child and until now. 

Thanks for stopping by. 

Take care. See you.

Casual Saturday #3....




....

Hi guys,
 (post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affilate Links-not sponsored)
we accidently skipped a week but I had my monthly favorites post last Saturday. We didn´t do so many things.

House: 
I got a new rug for the living room. Obviously there is a rug thing going on these days. But this one is so chic and it totally revalues our living room and let´s be honest - the old rug had to go after Florian spilled beer on it and Chloe bleeded and peed on it.




Food:
As ususal there is a lot of cooking I did. We tried out filled peppers with minced meat. I got the recipe here


Another thing we tried was a salad (is it still a salad when there are the most of the ingridients other ones than salad?) with a sliced cutlet with some hot sriacha sauce, avocados, cheese, peppers and corn. So so delicious. 

 The third thing we tried is this roasted chicken and spaghetti menu. I never thought of eating chicken with noodles but it was really good. The sauce was made of melted cream cheese and capers. I had 


Shopping:
I lately got a new addition to my bag collection. The Corolla K bowling bag in white from Valentino Handbags. And by white I mean snow white. I had been looking for a white bag so so long but whether I didn´t like the white or the shape or the size or it just was too expensive. 




Another thing I got is this super cute ethno clutch for going out on Summer evenings. And how cute is the tassel. Maybe I was a cat in my earlier life.



This belt (I ended up giving the rest of them back cause they where all similar and I don´t really needed them) and how cute are these sandals?? They have palm trees on them (insert heart emoji here!!!). 

 



TV:
There are two things we started this week and we are still watching the Good Wife (season 3 currently). First of all we started the Stranger Things on Netflix. I wasn´t so sure about it first but after reading all the comments that it is a must watch we started last Monday and after watching two episodes I had to stop. It is just too scary for me so Florian is watching it when I am out at my dancing lessons. 
And the second one is Girlboss. I am so happy they made a series about it. I read the book and this is more the kind of thing I am watching on TV. 

We are planning on setting up the patio furniture today and hopefully it won´t rain until tonight so we can get some steaks and corn on the grill.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend.

Take care. See you.
