There are some big (and little) differences between the two cultures and how Christmas is celebrated… so let’s take a look!

Ever since I was a little girl, I always wanted to make an outfit my own. And that idea doesn’t stop at dirndls. Just because you are wearing your dirndl doesn’t mean you are confined to wearing a traditional white dirndl blouse, an edelweiss choker and mary-janes! I LOVE to get creative with the styling and customization of my personal dirndls and below are the 5 easiest ways to style your dirndl to fit your personality (or the event… because a backyard German dinner date calls for a different look than a wedding).

Those "Silly" things Oma did... that you do now!

Those "Silly" things Oma did... that you do now!

I think about my Oma often, many times it's because I find myself doing many of the things she used to do. When I was little I thought she was being so silly for doing certain things, but now... they may still be a little silly, but I do them too! Oma may have been doing these things to save money or by habit, but most of these habits are some that we should put into place in our own homes to live a more sustainable and zero-waste lifestyle. There has never been a more important time in history to start making little changes that will make a big difference in the future. It's hard at first to change, but let's take the lead from Oma!
