Leather apron, Tonto slippers, Sweet Lullaby herbal tea and Jackpot Derby black tea – Des & Jen about their wish list:
“Cooking aprons are an important symbol in our family as we have always cooked a lot and we come from a family of chefs and restaurant-owners. Recipes are passed down from one generation to the next. Every year, our grandmother and aunt spend hours baking delicious Christmas biscuits. We adore the smell of freshly baked Christmas biscuits! Over recent years, we have become big tea fans and now drink it all year round. Slippers are a very important part of home life – since childhood we have always had to change straight into them as soon as we enter the house. So putting on slippers has more or less become a ritual.”
Desirée and Jennifer are twins, Viennese with Croatian roots, and they are passionate about fashion and all things beautiful. In 2013 they launched their successful blog Des & Jen, where they regularly report on fashion, music and lifestyle from all corners of the globe. Also on Instagram they are already followed by 95000 fashionistas.
