It's just timeless and classy :) And there are some great ideas around as how to decorate your home with wood... here just a few of them!

I absolutely love the vase in the middle at the top... just gorgeous!!!

cheer up!

The weather hasn't exactly been great these last few days... but that's about to change and I am really looking forward to these hot pre-summer days. And I am looking forward to some more cherry blossoms and magnolia blossoms. 
So here a few pictures to cheer you up and prepare you for the days to come. More from me later this week when I have more time.

I love [Babu's Bakery & Coffeehouse]

This is going to be a post unlike the ones I've done before. I am going to recommend you a super cute coffeehouse in the very heart of Zurich. As I fell for this place when I first went there and still am absolutely in love with, I thought I have to share it with you. Should you ever be in Zurich (if you're one of my readers that do not live here), you need to visit Babu's Bakery and Coffeehouse.

Everything about this coffeehouse is adorable: the mix and match furniture, the beautiful gold-rimmed and polka-dotted tableware, the yummy breakfast assortment (waffles, pancakes, yoghurt with berries, muffins, bagels, eggs...) and the super tasty coffee variations. I simply love to go there for an ample brunch or a coffee and cake in the afternoon. 

Having started today with the aforementioned ample brunch I feel like nothing can cloud my day. And even if the sun isn't shining: I'm in a state of bliss!

Coat it!

Hello and welcome back everyone! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend!? I certainly did! It was - undeniably - pretty stressful and packed with action and family but it was nevertheless great.

I spent almost a week in Germany to attend a wedding on wednesday before Easter and have some time with my boyfriend in his "old home". I really enjoyed our mini-holiday even if I almost froze to death and ate too much. The best things about this little trip were: attending the wedding of my boyfriend's best friend and getting super cute wedding favors, going to the cinema to watch the Hunger Games for a second time, attaching an engraved lock to the lovebridge in Bamberg and buying a super cute dress and 2 pairs of shoes...

But - as I mentioned before - it was cold! Really cold! Nothing you'd enjoy after a week of almost constant 20° C degrees... so you really needed a nice warm jacket or coat! That's why I thought I'd share with you 4 of the most amazing (and crazy) coats I've seen lately. I especially love the beige coat with the studded sleeves. Ah, I think I fell in love *sigh*

lots of kisses

Deer DIY

This weekend has been super duper stressful... there were tons of things I had to do and just too little time. 

The annual tax declaration was waiting for me, I had to write a 1000-word paper for one of my courses at the university and study for the midterm exam of another one. Additionally, I finally took the brown belt karate exam which meant almost 3 hours of hard core sweating and fighting - but it was definitively worth it. And packing for my one week trip to Germany was also part of the deal. 

This was definitively not a weekend that allowed me to spend my time creatively for a little diy project. But I am really looking forward to the week after Easter... the Easter holiday week. As soon as I will have some hours of free time, I will do this deer silhouette canvas. 

What I love about this project? you need almost nothing to do it: a canvas, one colour of your choice, and a picture of a deer which you have to transfer to the canvas. Super easy, right?! 

I wish everyone a great start into the next week!
