Christmas eve

Christmas eve is for me the most important Christmas day. In Germany we open our presents on christmas eve. So as a child it always was the most exciting day for us 😉.

I always loved going to the church and seeing the performance of the birth of Jesus and singing some Christmas carols. 

I always want to give my family the most amazing presents because they are my life and I would be nothing without them, I love them so much.

But it’s not about the prices, it’s about the thought and that’s all that matters.

All the stuff is from Asos 🙂 (except for the presents for my mum).

My little sister (she’s taller than me) creates a bit of a new style. Loads of her stuff is just too small and very childish so I wanted to give her a few new things.

New Look

For my brother I first had some shirts too, but I wasn’t really sure if he would 100 percent like them so I sent them back.

Now I’ve got this for him:

I actually really love it, I think it’s so cool and every friend is going to love it too.

He also loves to keep his shoes clean so I got him this stuff :D.

For my dad we always buy him books because he loves reading, but it can get a bit boring always receiving the same so I got some other things for him this year. I know this sounds at first terrible nobody wants to receive them as a child but now I would love getting them: SOCKS 😊. The socks my dad owns are so old, so I ordered him these ones:

I think they are really nice. And I also got him this slippers because his ones are old too and I think they look really nice and comfy.

I had to think a bit about what I want to get my amazing mum, but than I found 3 amazing things which I am so obsessed with.

Last year one of her mugs broke and she wanted to buy a nice one since that happens but she kind of forgot about it. So I ordered her the mug which broke. But I thought it would be much cooler if the mug wouldn’t be just white. I got her a mug with the skyline of Hamburg. We visited Hamburg  together this year and went to see Lion King so I thought the mug sums our adventure perfectly up.

Villeroy und Boch

When we were in Hamburg I used my new eye shadow palette, my mum absolutely loved it and said that she would like to have the same one. We looked around the city but we couldn’t find another one, so I ordered her one for herself 😊.

Rossman for the German ones

And last but not least I created a gift card for her to go to a backstage tour for the musical ‘Mary Poppins’. She wants to see the musical for so bad and we already planning on doing that and we love to go to these kind of tours so I thought it would be the perfect gift.

Of course Christmas isn’t ‘just’ The time of giving, but it feels really good to give something back to my amazing family who supports me and is always there for me.❤

I hope you have/had the best Christmas 🎄. Thanks for joining me this year. I hope you enjoyed my first time attempting Blogmas.

Merry Christmas 🎄

Spitzbuben

As I said I really wanted to share another Christmas cookies recipe with you, but because I am sick I couldn’t do it yesterday. Today I took all the power I had and baked Spitzbuben. I hope you are going to love them as much as I do. 

I didn’t take pictures for every step this time so it wouldn’t take as long to do and I could go back to my bed.

You will need:

  • 250 grams of flour 
  • 1 tsp of baking powder 
  • 40 grams of vanilla pudding powder
  • 100 grams of sugar 
  • 175 grams of soft butter 
  • 1 egg 
  • 150 grams of strawberrie jam

Mix everything except of the jam in a bowl until it forms a cookie dough consistency. 

Cut out circles our stars and place them on a baking tin. Cut another smaller circle or star out of the circles. (Half / half)

Bake the cookies for 9 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius. 

Let them cool down. Place some jam onto the circles without an hole. Then place a cookie with a hole on top of it. Put the left over jam into a pot and heat it up until the jam is liquid. Fill the holes of the cookies with the jam and let them cool down.

At the end sprinkle some icing sugar on top of them. 

I hope you have/had a nice Christmas eve eve.

It’s Christmas eve in two days 

OMG…. I can’t even describe how fast time flew bye. I couldn’t wait for December to come around and now it’s nearly the end of the month.

First of all thank you to everyone who stopped by and joined me on Blogmas. I had more than fun blogging everyday. There are two more posts coming up so it’s not over yet. But unfortunately I got sick yesterday and couldn’t bake the stuff I wanted to show you, so I decided to write a little post up to don’t miss a day.

I am really excited for you to see my two upcoming posts but I also wanted to share the posts which were my favorites. 

Although I wanted to bake so many more cookies I am quiet pleased how everything turned out. I love baking so much, especially on christmas. 

I also had so much fun wrapping the presents I got for my family and making my own Christmas crackers for the first time.

Since I got an eye shadow palette by make up revolution I love creating new looks. I had so much fun creating some eye shadow looks for Christmas.

I know 2 months don’t sound like a long time for some but not seeing my friend for so long was really hard and I was so excited to visit her. I had an amazing wonderful day.

And of course decorating my Christmas tree. This always feels so special and I love how my tree turned out.

Get excited for my two last posts of Blogmas. If you are currently sick I hope you get better and enjoy Christmas.

Thanks for stopping bye. ❤

Shoes I like to wear when it’s cold outside

There’s nothing better for a girl than shoes ;). I collected a few threw out the years and I wanted to share my favorite ones with you.

I ordered them about 3 years ago on ‘Boohoo’ and I am so obsessed with them. I nearly wore them to death so I think I have to get rid of them at some point, but I just can’t.

I love these shoes. I got them last year for less than half the price in a German shoe shop

And these ones I stole from my mum. They are so comfy and so warm, I am so obsessed with them.

As some of you might know I went to Hamburg a few weeks ago and I bought these shoes there. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. They look so chic, but are still more than comfy. I wouldn’t wear them when it snows outside, but on a brisk day they are fine.

And again, stole them from my mum. But I think everybody needs some good black boots.

Let me know what your favorite shoes are.
