There wasn’t exactly a big choice of hotels in the vicinity of where we were going to get married. Three hotels qualified in theory with two of them quickly disqualifying (one for their terribly unfriendly owner, one for looking a bit out-of-date). So we ended up booking a room in a business hotel. At least they told me there was going to be food for me at breakfast.
Who knew that Mr A was such a keen assembler of bunting? That Mum was perfect at bringing pompoms back to life that had been sitting in banana boxes for months?

Some time after Christmas my maid of honour had enquired whether I would be ok with her arranging some sort of bridal shower. Hating the hordes of drunk brides-to-be who regularly roam Vienna with their trays encroaching on strangers to selling them Jägermeister while having to complete “funny” challenges such as shaving a man’s leg I reluctantly agreed, dearly hoping that day wasn’t going to be hell.
As many of you will have seen on Snapchat, June 2016 has definitely been my busiest – and most successful – month as a blogger so far.

During the hot and dry summer of 2015 my balcony garden had ample time to thrive and throw off fruit. While last year I couldn’t wait to get going and planted the first seeds as soon as February, I was

A few months ago I came across Brautkästchen, a box filled with cute things every bride will love. (“Brautkästchen” translates to “Little bridal box”) Fond of all things that come in boxes – and in the mail – and are pretty, I was immediately hooked and read up all about it.

Long after your wedding guest will have forgotten about the music you spent sleepless nights picking, the meticulous balance of colours in your decorations and how your papeterie – from save the date- to thank you-cards fit together – they will still remember one thing about your wedding: the food. Continue reading Aliciouswedding: Let’s talk about the food, baby
While 2015 was gone quicker than I did appreciate it, for 2016 I’m striving to not let life overtake me again. Seriously, what happened last year?! All of a sudden it was Christmas while I still hadn’t processed the end of summer.
It was back in November when the lovely Laura from Lush Austria contacted me, asking whether I would find some pre-Christmas spare time for a VIP tour at their newly opened store at Donauzentrum in Vienna. Of course I did! Continue reading Aliciouslife: VIP shop tour at Lush
