Rosegal Review : Ombre Maxi Flowing Dress

Hi guys! Here is the other review I mentioned before. Featuring another gorgeous dress by Rosegal.com .  I adore maxi flowing dresses because they are perfect for both day and evening occasions. Since I am more into the feminine style now days, I feel more myself in a soft flowing long lovely dress. 

These photos are from the place I mentioned, where we will be staying for a week in the summer cabin. A space to breath and click back. When I packed for this getaway I made sure to take with me couple of maxi dresses that I can wear easily as I change from Bikini to regular outfit. I don't like wearing tight clothings when around water and sand. 

If you guys are interested in Ombre dresses for summer time, checkout Rosegals.com for great affordable collection. Casual summer dresses shouldn't cost a lot after all.  As for this lovely sleeveless purple and white dress.. find it here . It's made from polyester, easy to dry if around water. Perfect as a white bikini dress. 

I hope you enjoy this personal style inspiration and review. Enjoy!

Summertime, And The Livin' Is Easy

Hi my loyal readers. As I mentioned in my latest family diary post, summer is the most rushed season ever. I can not believe that it's already the end of July. Everything went quite well this month except for the weather being three seasons in a day. 

On our last grill picnic Julia enjoyed throwing stones in the sea, feeding seagulls and ducks. She also played the big sister roll with our friends little son who turned one year last week. She looked so adorable trying to play the grown up, walking around giving him toys and trying to feed him even. If I didn't have career plans on the table I would have consider giving her a baby sister or brother next year.

We will be spending this week in the summer cabin with Julia's grandparents. It's a lovely and cozy place by the sea to relax, exercise and enjoy the rest of July. We went on a boat tour with them and Julia was amazed. They placed a fishing net over night and got plenty of fresh fish. I am just hopping the weather will continue being as it is right now.

That's it for now, you guys can stay in touch and watch our live instagram posts. Cheeeers!

Rosegal Review : Spaghetti Strap Flowy Summer Maxi Dress

Hi guys! I am back with another review and personal style post. As you all know, I love summer maxi dresses. Couple of months ago when summer was about to start, I shared with you guys the "Spaghetti strap dress" on my wish list. Which can be both a day and evening dress depends on how you style it. 

I wore this dress to dinner last week with a leather jacket, golden accessories and black mid heels sandals. Those who follow me on Instagram must have seen it. And yesterday while we went out to enjoy the nature and eat lunch outside I wore the dress with brown flat sandals and a black summer hat, as you see in the photos. 

I got a lot of compliments about it. And besides that, it's comfy, the fabric is so soft and light. Just perfect for summer weather. I did not have lots of yellow items in my closet so I thought I would go for yellow since it's also perfect for summer and match my tan skin. 

Shopping with Rosegal.com was a great experience. Affordable prices, fast delivery and the product was just like the photos and description.

Milk And Gluten Free Almond Cookies





Ingredients

2 egg whites
200 g almond flour / almond paste
3 dl = 270 g sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
150 dark chocolate
Almond chips for decoration 

Method 
Preheat the oven to 175 c 347 f.
Mix all ingredients except the oil and the chocolate, until you get a almond dough. 
Roll the dough to a shape of a hotdog.  
Start slicing from the edge equal pieces.
Take each piece and roll it to a long stick. Then twist it to get this horse shoe shape. 
Meanwhile mix the oil with some egg white and brush over the cookies. 
Then sprinkle the almond chips over until they get stuck to the cookies.

Lay all pieces on a baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes. 
Take out the cookies and let them rest until they cool down and harden. 
Melt the chocolate while the cookies are cooling down.

Dip the edges of the cookies in the chocolate and let them dry in a cool temperature area.

Once they get dry you can keep them in a jar and serve them during your coffee break or afternoon tea.

Enjoy!

Friday Cocktail Recipe: Watermelon & Lime

Hey blog buddies! I hope your Friday is going well and you are excited for the weekend. My Fridays and weekends are different when hubby is away working. We actually have our Friday feeling days during the week. Last Tuesday for example I was out and about with a girlfriend of mine since art school and we had such a lovely dinner and girls happy hour. While Julia and daddy had some bonding alone time together. 

I spend my Friday evening playing with Julia, we might watch her favorite cartoon Little Princess and eat fruit salad until her bedtime at 19:00. Then when she sleeps I make myself a snack and watch whether one of my favorite reality tv shows, mad men, white collar or desperate housewifes. Depends on the mood :-). 

I hope you enjoy this cocktail recipe and make it as a treat for your Friday or weekend company. Have an amazing weekend! 





Ingredients

Fresh watermelon juice

1/2 of a personal sized watermelon, cut into chunks


4 cups fresh watermelon juice
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Our Summer Diaries




Enjoying summer with our daughter is one of the greatest things. Especially now when she is up walking and running around, exploring her surroundings. We did picnics, camping and grilling outdoors. As I mentioned before summer slips away so fast here because it's often very busy. And because most of the days of the week are actually cloudy and sometimes even rainy. This week for example I felt like it was already October whether. 

We have friends coming to visit us next week for three days and the week after Julia's grandparents rented a summer cabin for a week so we might be hanging out there with them and enjoy July before it ends. Then we are going to visit two of our friends in another city for couple of days and do a little road trip in the northern countryside. We will make sure to benefit from my home stay time.

My maternity leave will end by the end of August. And Julia will start kindergarten... OMG! I still can't believe it. I am both excited about it to be able to get myself and life back but in the same time I am going to be worried and miss her alot. Even that it's only few hours a day in the beginning.

Right now I am trying to focus on enjoying the moment and stay excited for getting back on track and finish all accomplished things that I delayed since I got pregnant. I am doing researches and making plans to get back in business. Woohooo!!!
