Giveaway Time! Win a set of 3 Mont Bleu Nail Files!

Friday, October 24, 2014

Happy Friday!

I have a little treat for you today! I was recently contacted by the PR of Mont Bleu if I'd like to give away a 3-piece set of their nail files. I agreed to run that giveaway, because you my fellow readers really need to try their glass files!

Ever since I started painting my nails I have been using nothing but crystal nail files. Unlike emery board or metal files, these will not damage your nails and they will last you forever (unless you drop them on tile floor - RIP little OPI crystal file). 
Mont Bleu is a Czech Republic based company that seriously makes some of the best glass nail files I have ever tried! I have one of their standard size files at home and always carry one of their travel nail files in my purse - you never know when you tear a nail, so it is good to keep a file handy.

I will draw the winner on November 1, 2014. Afterwards, I will provide Mont Bleu with the winner's e-mail address. There are four color variants to choose from (Black, Orange, Gold and Lilac). The company will contact you and arrange shipping of your prize. Open internationally.

Throw Back Thursday ~ My Favorite Halloween Manicures

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Every year I wish Halloween was a big thing here in Germany, too. There is something about spooky decorations, Halloween candy and trick or treating that I really like. And of course I adore everything pumpkin! So I cannot help it, but I also have to wear something Halloween-ish on my nails, too. If you are looking for some nail art inspiration or simply enjoy spooky nail designs, check out some of the Halloween manicures I have done since I started this blog!

[Foodie Post] Banana - Peanut Butter Mug Cake

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

One of the things I probably love most about Autumn are gloomy afternoons. When the weather is chilly outside I love to get cozy on my couch. I light a candle, make myself a hot cup of tea, grab a blanket and just dream away. To round up a pleasent afternoon I treat myself to a yummy piece of cake. But let's face it, on such days I am just too lazy to go and get something from the bakery or bake some cake myself. Recently I discovered mug cakes and went a bit crazy experimenting with different ingredients and flavors. The combination of banana and peanut butter is one of my favorites.
