What do I want to wear today? | Coffee Date

 photo Unbenannt-1_zps58dca656.jpg

I feel like the sooner the sun sets, the more coffee I need to keep my eyes open. Please tell me you feel the same (otherwise I'll have to consider a serious coffee addiction)!? Coffee dates have been a regular thing lately - sometimes with the boyfriend, sometimes with friends and many times with myself. This is what I would probably wear to all three of those coffee dates. I do own the loafers in real life and I am in love. When I'm not wearing my chelsea boots these are the shoes you'll probably see me in. And a super cozy cardigan with integrated scarf? Yes please!

Homemade chocolate nougat spread | nom nom nom

I'm no fan of Nutella. Boom. I said it. I don't like it. I'm aware that I must be one of very few people on the planet to say that. I think it's too sweet, too nougat-y (no fan of nougat either).
I also only tried this recipe for the boyfriend and never intended to eat one bite out of it. But as it turns out - I love it! It's sweet but not too sweet and it tastes really much more like chocolate than nougat. And the texture is just perfectly smooth and creamy. It's like the real thing, just tastes better!
I believe you could experiment with the amounts of sugar, chocolate and nougat to get the chocolate nougat spread to taste sweeter or more like nougat or more like chocolate. Or use dark or white chocolate! This was definitely not the last time I made this heavenly chocolate nougat spread.
Best thing: totally easy. Follow me.

Step 1: Gather all the ingredients.

Step 2: Pour the heavy cream into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Take it off the stove and start adding all the other ingredients one after another.

Step 3: Continue to stir until all ingredients are combined in a homogeneous, creamy paste. Fill into containers (2 x 250 g)and leave the chocolate nougat spread to cool for at least 1 hour.

Step 4: Enjoy right away or store in the fridge for up to 4 weeks!

10 good reasons to treat yourself to a bouquet of fresh flowers this week

Do you know that I love flowers? I do. Who doesn't, really?
Still, the chance that you will find a bouquet of flowers in my home is fairly slim, mostly because I'm constantly trying to get begging the boyfriend to surprise me with flowers more often. Right now we're at about twice a year... and of course every time I mention the flower topic he feels he has to wait at least two weeks, because getting those flowers tomorrow wouldn't be a surprise anymore ... right? Yeah... Sadly you can forget a lot of things in two weeks. Side effect: Every time I'm about to buy the most beautiful flowers for my home I'm like "What if he brings me flowers today and sees that I've already treated myself?" So most of the time I go home empty handed. Meh.

But this week I vow to take the damn flowers home, because they make me happy, they brighten up the space, they help me to focus and to stay calm and I need all those things so badly to get me through this grey Autumn weather. Also, they will look very pretty on instagram (Ha!). The boyfriend will learn, eventually (positive thoughts, Kathie, positive thoughts).
Let's treat ourselves with a bouquets of pretty flowers this week! Here are 10 good reasons why. I hope they brighten up your day.

Under the sea (we got no troubles life is the bubbles)

Finally - FINALLY! - I managed to finish the roll and get it developed! This is definitely the last post about our trip to France. I promise. But one of the best things to bring to our trip to France was definitely the disposable underwater camera! The French riviera probably the best place to bring an underwater camera anyway. Taking those pictures was so much fun and seeing the developed photos even more. They came out great! Some of them are blurry or dull, but that's the risk and the fun with disposable cameras - you can't delete and you never know what you get!
