Advent Calendar Day 19: Stelton candle sticks

Since I just already some impressions from our living room earlier this week, I am excited to tell you guys about today’s giveaway! Up for grabs are 2 gorgeous and timeless candle holders (worth almost 100€) by Stelton. Even if you don’t love candles as much as I do (I would even go as far as calling it slightly obsessed), these will be perfect for the holiday season, or they would make a lovely gift! 

“Spread cheer in your home with the new Reflection candlesticks. The new slender, organic and feminine candlesticks for the home have been designed for Stelton by the Danish architect duo Halskov & Dalsgaard. The candlesticks are available in two heights with a polished surface that reflects the light. The heights of the candlesticks are complementary, creating a beautiful sea of light when several candlesticks are clustered together.”

Also, be quick to head on over to Kate’s blog if you love to travel! She is giving aways a little something together with the amazing 25 Hours Hotels … it’ll be worth your while – trust me!

Finding THE dress …

“Alles Walzer!” (let’s walz) – that is today’s motto! I am so excited to tell you guys that I will be attending the Opera Ball here in Vienna for the first time in February … such a dream come true! Naturally, the first question that popped into my head was “what on earth am I going to wear?”. That’s why I headed to Peek & Cloppenburg in the 1st district this past weekend to do a bit of dress shopping. Of course, I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous white gowns, designed exclusively by Atil Kutoglu for P&C. The modern interpretation of Sisi with the draped shoulder was literally too stunning for words … however, since only the debutantes get to wear white, my search continued. I want to wait until the actual ball to show you the dress, but I do have a few shots from the fitting to share today. Excited to hear what you guys think!

Advent Calendar Day 18: Thalia E-Reader

Those that love to travel as much as I do will have a real appreciation for today’s goodie: an eReader by THALIA. If you’re anything like me when it comes to packing your bags and suitcase, it is always a challenge not to exceed those 23kg which are allowed. Sadly, the thing that usually has to stay home is a good book or two. The weight is simply too valuable! But let’s be real, what would a vacation be without a good book? Can you imagine spending hours at the beach without a lovestory or thriller to read? Luckily, you can now win an eReader (tolino vision 2), which has room for up to 2000 books. Seriously! So while saving weight in your suitcase, you can basically take an entire library with you when traveling – or to bed. Sounds good to me!
