HEY GUYS!
this is a long due post about how my life changed the last two weeks.
i had this plan in my head for some years now and like everyone else, i was too scared to leave my day job as i have a 6 year old kid and i was raised to think that security is something rare and you should be grateful if you have one.
i was also afraid to dive in the unknown. i know that opening a cupcake boutique here in my town was brave but fast forward to two years and three months, I FINALLY DID IT!
i knew i couldn´t do it alone so all the connections i gathered from blogging was tapped for help and boy i am glad that i have generous sponsors to help me realize this life long dream.
Kitchen Aid for the kitchen equipments, without you, there would be no Cupcakes in Couture & Cupcakes,
Maisons du Monde, for sending all these adorable furniture that makes this place a whole lot nicer and comfortable,
miavilla for sending furniture for the clothes section,
 Farrow & Ball for giving me the paint for the whole store
and lastly to my friends & readers for supporting this new journey for me.


It is so surreal to start something, plan everything to the last detail and then see it all come to reality and receive overwhelming feedback. If someone told me before when i first came here to Germany that i will be owning a shop in 10 years time, i would have said, NOO WAYY! But yes, here we are and i cannot even put to words how i feel right now.
I lay in my bed at night and i still cannot believe that this is actually reality and not a dream anymore.
so if you are around Offenburg, please come by and let´s have coffee!

My favorite childhood fairytales always ended with: "And they lived happily ever after.." My fairytale would end up in this.. "And she opened Couture & Cupcakes.."

hey guys!!
how long has it been? two months? i lost count.
i haven´t forgotten about you.. i was just super busy cooking up a plan!
WE ARE OPENING A CUPCAKE BOUTIQUE.
today was my last day at work and we will be beginning with the renovations.
THIS has been my uniform for these days as we are super busy running around town to various offices and picking out stuff for the store!
a crisp white shirt, comfy leggings, sandals and of course a minimalistic coat which is a MUST HAVE this fall (although the weather here in my town has been super crazy, very smart to always have a light coat with me!).
i have never been a fan of summer dressing as it leaves pretty small window for creativity (read: denim shorts + tee) but thankful that these clothes are perfect for cold summer days as well.

HERE´S A QUICK PEEK TO MY STORE! IT IS SO PINK, I WANNA SCREAM!!! so excited as i will give away one Kitchenaid Mixer in Pink in time for the opening! SO WATCH OUT FOR IT! image image image
Thank you to Farrow & Ball (Nancy´s Blushes & Calamine, in case you´re looking for the perfect pink!!) for the paint.

i was invited to Warsaw, poland yesterday to attend a fashion show for Reserved´s Fall/ Winter collection.
they are launching the polish brand soon in Germany and one thing i can tell you, it´s gonna be amazing! there are already a lot of pieces in my wishlist.
they´re upping their game especially for the german market and i thought that they were really successful in doing so!
i cannot wait for the online shop to open and for you to see what i am talking about.

Masha did a great job with the photos and this was basically the "tourist-y" part of the trip.
one day wasn´t enough to concur warsaw but from the small parts i saw, i will definitely be back with le boyf (which has polish roots by the way) and miguel!

are we all enjoying the 40 degree weather?
ME NOT SO MUCH!
i love it when i can wear black and throw on a jacket over my shoulders.
but this heat, OMG. 
my mind cannot even think of a witty text to accompany these pictures, so random musings would have to do for now.
