Holiday Time

Hello everybody,

we are packing our bags and leaving for the South! :)
While Katja chills in Sardinia I'll be heading to Ischia in the Bay of Naples. Our blog will be on vacation too, we'll be back with a lot of beautiful pictures from Bella Italia and travel tips at the end of July. Until then you can follow along on Instagram.

Have a great summer so far! I'm already looking forward to meeting you again! :)

Garden Jungle

Hello everybody,

last month I helped myself to a beautiful new one-piece bathing suite (covered with black and white jungle motives) by Viennese designer lila. I am a big fan of her designs as she often works with belts and ribbons which make it possible to wear her clothes in different ways and I like that her things are often very sweet but cool at the same time.
Anyways, as I didn't want to wear my new favourite bathing suite just poolside I decided to incorporate it into a usual summer outfit as well... :)

bathig suit: lila | lace short: The Kooples (old) | belt: ZARA (came with this dress) |
necklace: vintage | shoes: ZARA (similar)

Have a wonderful evening!

Gift Wrapping Idea: Tissue Paper plus Twigs plus Colour

Hi folks,

recently I helped myself to a new (beautiful) orchid, which happened to be wrapped in pink tissue paper. In addition two twigs were put in the pot as decoration. Both things, the tissue paper and the twigs, inspired me to a lovely gift wrapping idea that I wanted to share with you. :) It's really easy, but makes quite an impression.

What you'll need
  • tissue paper
  • twigs
  • spray paint in colour of tissue paper
  • glue (liquid)
  • scissors
  • adhesive tape 
How it works

First, wrap your present into the tissue paper.

Then, spray-paint the twigs and let them dry. Afterward cut them into pieces in the size of your choice and use the glue to fix them on your gift.

You can glue as many twigs on your present as you like. I chose two per gift to avoid the packages to look cluttered but that of course depends on the size of the gifts as well.

Have a great evening everybody!!

Bol, Island of Brac: The Caribbean of the Mediterranean Sea

Hey folks,

I spent a wonderful week in Bol, a picturesquely little port town on the Croatian island Brac.
Unfortunately I forgot my camera at home, so please don't blame me for the small iPhone pictures ;)
I would describe Brac as the Carribbean of the Mediterranean Sea. The water is turquoise blue and crystal clear.

Bol was build in 1475 and is renowned for its most popular beach, the Zlatni Rat ("Golden cape"). We spent most of our evenings in the lovely harbour and had some amazing food.
I can recommend the following restaurants:
  • Pumparela: best cevapcici in town and amazing seafood
  • Pizzeria Topolino: they also serve great Croatian dishes and yummy seafood. Plus: there is a great musician playing live music every night. I couldn't decide what I liked more: him or the food ;)
  • Varadero Cocktail bar: a great place with chillout music for your after-dinner cocktail ;)
My favourite dish was definitely grilled octopus with mangold-potatoe-mash (a Croatian speciality). OH SO YUMMY :))

In Bol I tried out stand-up-paddling for the very first time - and I instantly felt in love with this relaxing water-sport! You should try it out aswell. It isn't hard at all, but it still trains most of your core muscles.

There are also many windsurfing- and kitesurfing-schools in Bol. I borrowed my stand-up-paddleboard from "Johnny's" surfschool - super nice and cool dudes over there :)

On our last evening we walked along the coast and found this lovely zen-stone-sculpture.

I can really recommend the Island of Brac for a relaxing, chill-out holiday. It is also perfectly suited for families and elderly people :)
