Five Things. The perfect dress, a book about a book store and glasses.

Hallo meine Lieben,

hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday! How was your Thanksgiving? Hope you had a fantastic time with your loved ones.
Please check out my friend Celeste's Five Things as well.


1. This dress.


I love everything about this dress. Seriously. I feel like I need to own this and that does not happen very often. The color is fantastic. The cut, the little heart, everything. Well, it might be a bit short but other than that...I am so in love. I rarely fall in love like that with a dress...The clothes by Vaute Couture are all so wonderful. The dress is made of vegan satin (100% recycled fibers). It is perfect. Period. 


2. This granola bar.


I recently discovered this granola bar in a whole foods store and thought it sounded pretty delicious. Not very surprisingly, it also tastes delicious. It is made with peanuts, cashews, raisins, mango, pineapple, coconut and curry. Foodloose also sell bars like "Sahara Dragon" (dragonfruit, ginger, peanuts, almonds, physalis) or nut mixes like "are you veda?" (mango, macadamia nut ,coconut, ginger, pineapple, papaya). 


3. Baking.


I really enjoy baking right now. Today I made vegan "Blätterteigtaschen" (pockets made of puffed pastry (don't know if that's the right word for it.)) filled with marzipan, chocolate, walnuts and raisins or apple sauce, almonds and chocolate. Both types covered with chocolate also. Lots of chocolate. Happy Katrin. 


4. This book. 


Saw this book in the book store last week and resisted buying it because I already have so many books to read. Can't believe I did that. But it sounds so fascinating that I put it on my list immediately. Here is what it's about:
"The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon away from life as a San Francisco web-design drone and into the aisles of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after a few days on the job, Clay discovers that the store is more curious than either its name or its gnomic owner might suggest. The customers are few, and they never seem to buy anything—instead, they “check out” large, obscure volumes from strange corners of the store. Suspicious, Clay engineers an analysis of the clientele’s behavior, seeking help from his variously talented friends. But when they bring their findings to Mr. Penumbra, they discover the bookstore’s secrets extend far beyond its walls."
I think I want to live in this bookstore. 


5. These glasses.


I think I made a final decision. I want to get these glasses. I hope I won't change my mind again because I am thinking about this forever. 


Have a happy weekend!

  1. Hej,
    this dress is just gorgeous! It is so pretty and this orange?! Really nice. I am still looking for a dress for Christmas, but can't decide which one to buy, as I've tried several the last weeks.

    And can I come over to eat all of your baking stuff?! Pretty please! :-D We're going to bake gingerbread houses with the kids and their friends tomorrow! Can't wait for it

    Have a nice weekend!

  6. Blätterteigtaschen sounds delicious! We make things with puff pastry all the time, but I never would have thought of the combination used in blätterteigtaschen. YUM!

  11. You should definitely buy that dress, Katrin! It's ok to splurge every once in a wile and you sure deserve it!

    That book actually sounds very interesting. Now I want to read it, too, haha. However, there's a huge pile waiting for me to read them :/.

    Hope your Thanksgiving was great! Hugs,

    Miki.

    1. I guess you are right and it is okay to splurge once in a while. But the dress really is expensive....but so cute! haha.

      There is a huge pile of books waiting for me as well. And so many I am planning to get. :)

      Hope you are having a great week, Miki! Hugs!

  12. Love that dress! It is gorgeous! And I'm sure you'd look beautiful in it :)
    That granola bar looks like something I need to try. And baking definitely makes the world a better place. I need to make Christmas cookies soon :)
    That book sounds amazing. I want it! :D And the glasses are awesome (my new ones are brownish, too, a little similar to these) - so I'm definitely thinking you should get them :)
    Ich hoffe, Du hattest einen guten Start in die neue Woche, liebe Katrin.
    Ich drücke Dich gaaaaanz feste!

    1. What's a peppermint bark? I have never heard about that but anything vegan and sweet sounds good to me. :) Chocolate makes me happy too! :)

  14. Oh my gosh, love those glasses! And if that granola bar is a German thing, I'm going to have to go hunting for it because it sounds great. Any idea which stores carry them?

    1. Can't wait to get the glasses! I bought the granola bar in a Biomarkt. I am sure you are able to find them there or in a Reformhaus. Let me know what you think! You can find all their products here: http://www.foodloose.net/produkte/
      You can also order online!
