We have been traveling a lot lately and with family in town, and not so much time to update my blog. I apologize!! Trying to catch up now!! I have been wearing a lot of colorful outfits and one of my favorites this summer is the off shoulder tops. They are so cute and feminine and go great with jeans or shorts. Perfect for a day out with the kids or you can even dress it up with some bold accessories and go for a night out! And of course, my favorite – easy – braid, which is my go to almost every day!! Because let’s be honest, a mom of two busy boys don’t have much time to do her hair ; ) I linked below my favorites off should tops!
We got back from Italy recently and had the pleasure to stay in a little town called Riva Del Garda, which is right on the northern side of the Lake Garda. One of our favorite things there was trying the delicious Limoncello in the city called Limone Del Garda. Limoncello is a classic Italian lemon liqueur mainly produced in Southern Italy, especially in the region around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the coast of Amalfi, and islands of Procida, Ischia, and Capri. But you can find it everywhere in Italy. It’s absolutely amazing!! Since I am so passionate about this liqueur, and not everyone can just run to Italy and purchase a bottle from Limone, I decided to share a recipe I found. So now you can make Limoncello at home and with easy ingredients, and enjoy it with your girlfriends on a hot summer day!!
Pare the zest from all the lemons, taking care not to include any white pith. Put the zest in a large clean jar and pour over the vodka. Cover with a tightly fitting lid and leave for a week, shaking the jar each day.Put the sugar in a heatproof bowl and pour over the boiling water, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the vodka and peels and leave for a further week, shaking the jar regularly.
Strain into decorative bottles, adding a few strips of lemon zest to each bottle. Cheers!
So while in Italy I decided to go shopping and get a nice, and comfortable, summer dress. But a dress that would easily transition to Fall. And I found this one at H&M!! They were having great sale and I got to score those beautiful blue tasseled earrings as well. I am so in love with this look, and the hat just brings that lovely island vibe. You can dress up the look wearing some high heels and go for a fun night out.

Okay, everyone already knows that I love Prague! It’s one of our favorite cities around here. We had family come to visit and we got the chance to show them all the precious details of Czech’s beautiful capital!! There’s always a charm that is so characteristic of it’s old down historic buildings. It’s just so precious to me and every time we go there I see the city and photograph it in a different perspective. Love Love Love Prague
We got back from Italy and had some busy events to attend in our town. Last weekend was the Kirwa festival here in our village in Bavaria and the boys got to dress up and wear lederhosen!! Which I think is absolutely adorable. Since I noticed that I needed to update Logan’s photos, I took this around town for a quick and fun shoot wearing the lovely German traditional outfit.
