Advent Calendar Day 14: Nira Alpina Hotel

My favorite part about Winter definitely isn't wearing thick jackets, and it's not the slushy snow in Vienna either. It is going home to the mountains where my parents live to re-charge my batteries. Don't get me wrong, the Alps are just as beautiful in the Summer, but Winter in the mountains is so peaceful and calming. It is the only time I actually forget about my laptop and phone for a few hours. The perfect getaway, I guess. Well, today it is your turn!

Advent Calendar Day 13: Shanghai Tang „Gold Lily“

One of the all-time classics for Christmas presents has to be perfumes. Admittedly, I've had one under the tree most years and love it! A nice perfume doesn't exactly come cheap, so I always appreciate my grandma coming to my rescue. Well, today the Advent Calendar will spoil one of you with a special scent: Shanghai Tang „Gold Lily“.

Advent Calendar Day 12: Molton Brown

One thing I love giving others (and receiving) are scented candles. I do have a huge appreciation for them, however, it is something that I definitely consider splurging. That's why it makes for the perfect gift. Just like a luxurious bath set, perfume or other pretty things that you treasure...

Advent Calendar Day 11: JOUUR silk top

BonJOUUR day no. 11 of the big Advent Calendar. Today, I have a beautiful silk longsleeve "JULI" from JOUUR for you guys. JOUUR is a label founded by Jessica Weiss of Journelles, and I think I've said it before, but hello #girlcrush! Jessie doesn't do things halfway, she goes all in and is such an inspirational woman. No wonder her own clothing line turned out amazing!

Advent Calendar Day 10: eos beauty set.

When it comes to my various bags, my motto is "not without my eos lip balm". Those little round guys are my favorite discovery of the year. You can only imagine how excited I was to hear that they've expanded their collection to also include a few new products, such as hand and body lotions. Reason enough to set you guys up with a care package or two, right?

Advent Calendar Day 9: Braun

Today the guys finally get to join the fun with my Advent Calendar. We all love smooth skin, no matter if we're talking legs (for the ladies) or cheeks & chin (for the guys). That's why I've teamed up with Braun today. Up for grabs is a Series 9 electric razor that brings the intelligent Sonic Technology with 10,000 micro vibrations per minute to the table...

Advent Calendar Day 6: Clarisonic Mia 2

Nothing beats squeaky clean skin! Seriously, no matter how sick, drunk or tired I am, I never go to bed with make-up on. As someone who doesn't believe in tons of layers of cover-up, I think that good skin is the most important foundation for any make-up. If you feel the same way, you will love today's giveaway...
