Sponsored: A Colorful Brunch with RiceDK (and Mini Giveaway)

Hello everyone, happy Monday! Those of you who have been following me for a while know that I love a colorful home with bright furniture and many bright and colorful pieces of homeware and decor. Who couldn't then be a better coop partner than Rice DK?
RiceDK is a Danish company for colorful kitchenware and homeware and has everything for you to make you happy "when you are cooking and baking, washing and cleaning, relaxing and enjoying the magic of everyday life..." Just wonderful! I have been buying RiceDK's kitchenware for a while now and this time, I got to choose some new pretty new pieces for my home which I am now showing you with a colorful spring brunch. :) Most of the items are from the current spring and summer collection 2015.

A colorful spring brunch with RiceDK

Most of the dishes I use are from RiceDK (some are from IKEA) and I love all the pops of color which they add to my home and to my everyday life. I chose those cute heart-shaped egg holders, plates, bowls, cups and even cutlery. Wow, so so pretty!
The mixture of shapes and patterns is so lovely and since I got all those pieces of kitchenware, I enjoy eating even more. ;)
Back in April, I then prepared a colorful brunch for some of my closest friends. I made a food table with sweet things, savory treats and drinks and prettily decorared my kitchen table.
The bowls are filled with orange-vanilla-coconut rice pudding with raspberries, there's juice and raspberry-coconut milkshakes, mmmhh!
On the counter you can find even more declious things which look extra pretty in all of those bowls from RiceDK and which match the rest of my kitchen really well.
Apart from buying fruit juice, I prepared infused water with fresh mint, lemon and orange.
Moreover, I bought a cake and donuts, made fresh waffles, a fruit salad, prepared sweet scrambled eggs with fruits, made fresh spring curd with chives, cucumber, tomatoes and onions, prepared cheese, vegetables and made a tomato herb butter after a recipe I got from my best friend aentschie. I love the combination of cake stands and bowls and how they prettily displays all the food.
All those things were so so delicious and looked even more tasty on those colorful plates with the lovely patterns. Eeeeeks, colors make me oh so happy!
What I really loved was the combination of food table, buffet and kitchentable.
The rice pudding was one of my favorites that day. While writing this blogpost, I wish I could eat all of this again now. ;)
Oh those colors of the dishes! And did you spot the cute watermelon cups? Eeeks!
We all ate way too much and I had leftovers for a few days and even brought some things to work. :D
Mhhh, this was good!

Sponsored: What I Wore // Win a Shirt from mydearlove

Hello lovely readers! It's been a while since my last outfit post, it was late October, wow! :) Today it's time for a new one. :)
Dungarees: c/o mydearlove
Shirt, cardigan & hat: h&m
Earrings & sparkling ring: sixx
Sneakers: osco

What I Wore: A Spring Outfit with mydearlove

This time, it's a really special outfit post, because it's for a collaboration with the wonderful indie label mydearlove. Anke & Moni design and create the most wonderful and magical clothes and I got choose something for my own wardrobe, yippie! :)

Spring is slowly coming and although it still is really fresh outside, I got to wear my pretty pair of dungarees for the first time and my friend Alexander Rentsch was so kind to take these photos of my outfit. If you need a photographer in Berlin, hop over and check out his fantastic work! :)
Because I love white shirts with lovely prints, I've chosen this "Do what you love Mydear" shirt.
One shirt is for me, one of you can win the other (more information at the end of this blogpost :)).
The most important piece of this outfit is the wonderful pair of denim dungarees which I got in the long version (available as shorts in Anke's and Moni's shop). For me this was quite a challenge, because wearing a pair of dungarees means stepping out of my comfort zone and natural clothing style. :)
The dungarees have great pockets and a pretty bib, embellished with a white zig zag ribbon.
To make this outfit look even more casual, I decided to wear my beloved black hat which I got last year.
Those dungarees are so comfy! I think they aren't only nice for a casual everyday life outfit, but would also be great for travelling.
There's even a front pocket, so pretty.
Yippie, happy girl! :) I love cooperations with indie brands and with promoting handmade products, this is so much fun! And mydearlove made the dungarees for my individual measurements, what a pleasure. We've already been following each other for a while, so the pleasure for me is even bigger. :)

Haha, and please don't laugh at me: I chose the yellow cardigan for a fresh spring style and when then looking at the photos afterwards, I recognized that my outfit slightly reminds of a Minion. :D But nevermind, Minions are awesome and some of the happiest creatures ever, so why not! :)

Win a Typo Shirt from mydearlove

To share the happiness with you, mydearlove is giving away this wonderful shirt for you in size M.
