Goodbye 2013

When it comes down to prepare this post we always think “What happened to this year?!”. Somehow it comes really slowly, the end of one year and the beginning of a new one. However it still always feels as if we have created this post just a few days ago. And now we do it again. One year, gone so fast and with it so many memories to keep in mind. What has been most memorable then? Here a little list which is really just captures some things We traveled a lot this year – Amsterdam, London, Praha, Palma de Mallorca, Madeira, Weimar, Istanbul, Paris, Roma and Venice. We hope to be able to add some more beautiful places to our list in the next year. Traveling is such a passion, you ca never get enough of it. We have done an interview with the Tagesspiegel about Midnight Couture. Additionally we also joined the BlogStars and Stylight blogger network. So many opportunities have come along and we are so grateful for it. And you made this actually possible. BIG THANK YOU …

Here’s a post about food and healthy eating and we’re sure you will love! So, here comes the deal and some tips for you … The holiday season is upon us, and all over the world this tends to mean that December and January become a time of decadence. Hearty feasts, sweet desserts, and perhaps a few extra spirits tend to be in order this time of year, and in the name of festivity it’s all well and good. Part of the beauty of the holidays is that we all “let go” a little bit and indulge in some treats and pleasures we don’t ordinarily enjoy on a regular basis.

What to wear for a Christmas Brunch

We all know what Holiday season sometimes can turn into – a stressful marathon of dressing up appropriate to every occasion possible. That is why we thought it would be nice to have a little guide what to wear for different festivities during Holiday season! Firstly, we thought a cozy sweater with a statement necklace and leggings would fit perfectly to a Christmas Brunch among friends and family. Sweater – Mint&Berry (found on Zalando) Necklace – H&M

Midnight Couture wishes a Merry Christmas!

It has grown to be our little tradition to surprise our readers with a special shooting each year for Christmas!

What is more, this year we have been supported by numerous people and we are very thankful for everything! Thanks to the marvelous photographers team of Johannes Räbel and Reinhardt&Sommer for gorgeous shots and the right equipment. Thank you very much Zalando for providing us with the latest fashion for the shoot. Last but not least a big thank you to Calma Hotel in Berlin Mitte for the location!

French Tea Time

Yesterday, we gladly accepted an invitation to our first French Tea time ever at Concorde Hotel Berlin. We surely knew the old tradition of English Tea but we have never experienced the French version up until now! One thing we can tell for sure- it was more than delicious and involved for example freshly made apricot macarons, madeleines and the finest jasmine tea ever! Thank you so much for having us, we are already excited for the next event that may come up.

Chocolate Cornflakes Cookies

For these delicious chocolate cornflakes cookies (my absolut favorite) you need: 250g butter 2 eggs 180g sugar one pack of vanilla sugar 350g flour 5-6 cups of cornflakes 100g dark chocolate 1/2 pack of backing powder 125g raisins Preheat your oven to 180°C Crush the cornflakes and chop the chocolate into small crumbs (if you have a good mixer or mixing machine the cornflakes will break in the mixing process). First you mix butter, eggs, vanilla sugar and sugar together. In a separate bowl we combine the flour with the backing powder. Then add it to the butter etc. mixture. Now you need the chopped chocolate and the raisins, all in there. Last but not least add the cornflakes. Form small heaps on the metal sheet covered with baking paper. Bake about 15 to 20 minutes on the second rack at 180 degree (upper/lower heat). Check after 15 minutes, it all depends on how big your heaps are. We do rather little ones because you can get more out of the recipe in the end. …
