What I Wore: Pink & Blue at the Funfair


Dress: asos
Clutch: h&m
Shoes: vans
Earrings: handmade
Turquoise rings: vintage, gifts from my Mama
Sparkling ring: gift from Flo

Hello and happy day everyone! Do you remember me telling you about my happy week in Vienna? During those days, Stef and I went to the Prater, Vienna's traditional funfair with an awesome vintage charme, and took outfit photos there. I already published my first funfair outfit shoot with the photos that Stef took of me and today I'm sharing the other one.
While we have been spending one whole afternoon at the Prater, alternately taking photos of each other, I also took tons of photos of the colorful signs and buildings with Stef's great camera, so this blogpost is a mixture of outfit photos and happy mood photos from the Prater. Enjoy! :)
It was tons of fun posing between all those colorful sings and scary clowns. ;)
Matching my clutch, I wore those pretty turquoise rings that my mother once gave me, perfectly matching my sparkling ring from Flo. :)
Those leather tassel earrings are handmade.
In a perfect dream world, I would go to a funfair every single day. :)
My great new vans (this time in blue) have again been a great companion. They are so pretty!
Happiest girl! I've always wanted to take photos at a funfair and when Stef told me about the Prater, I definitely wanted to go there and suggested taking outfit photos at that magical place. We had a super afternoon!
Such a magical place, I hope I can come back one day!

Recipe: Mango Colada

Hello and happy Monday! Before summer is going to be over pretty soon, here's for you a recipe for a delicious and fruity cocktail, a mango colada with a little bit of orange and pineapple. I planned it for my tropical food table in June and my best friend Anja helped me with making and decorating it, because I was running out of time before it was getting too dark to take photos. :) Let's go!

Ingredients for a Mango Colada:

What you need:
- White rum
- Coconut cream
- Mango juice or fresh mangoes to get the juice from
- Some orange and pineapple slices and some juice of both fruits
- Crushed ice

Make a Mango Colada Cocktail:

For making the cocktail and depending on the size of your container (bowl or cocktail glass), use a total of about 20% white rum, 40% mango juice, 20% coconut cream, 10%  orange and pineapple juice and 10% crushed ice.
As a first step, mix the different kinds of juice and fill it into the glass or bowl. Then mix alcohol and coconut cream and slowly pour it on top (then it's like on the photo that you have a yellow lower part and a white top part of your cocktail). Afterwards, carefully add the ice and then dcorate your glass or bowl with orange and pineapple slices.

Enjoy before the summer is over and check out my other recipes! :)
What's your favorite cocktail?
