Last day of giveaways – day 10 – the Gingerbread House + giveaway winners….



….

 Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links/Giveaway-not sponsored)
by browsing my recipe tab you will probably notice that I love to bake. Finding new recipes to try or creating some by myself is a real pleasure to me although it takes a lot of time and dedication and overall patience. So most of the time I am reaching for easy recipes which look like they made a lot of work. Gingerbread houses are one of these. Not only do they look adorable they also taste really good. So if you get tired of looking at it just eat it. 

Over all the Christmas cookie baking we often forget about how much fun it is to make one of the gingerbread houses (at least over here). And it is even more fun and so eary if you can use a template. So for today´s giveaway I a have a whole set of gingerbread house cutters for a stressfree baking.

Also I am sharing a recipe below so you can bake your own right after receiving your package. And let me tell you it tastes delicious but be sure to make enough so your house won´t miss anything.
Ingredients:
for the dough:
– 250 gr of honey
– 150 gr of butter 
– 250 gr of brown sugar
– 400 gr of flour
– 200 gr of almonds, grounded
– 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
– 1 teaspoon of gingerbread spice
– 1 tablespoon of cocoa
– 1 egg
– roll out the dough and cut out all the shapes you need for your house
– bake for about 25 minutes at 180 degrees
– be sure to let them cool down before you glue them together

for the frosting:
– 500 gr. confectioners sugar
– 2 egg whites


– mix it together and be sure to have a creamy consistency, if it is to dry it won´t stick same goes the other way

10 Days of Christmas Giveaways – Day 8 – skin care secrets…

….
Good morning guys,
 (post contains affiliate links/giveaway/Post enthält Affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Giveaway-not sponsored)
I am back (after a little break) with giveaway #8 from my 10 days of giveaways series. Last week has been such a whirlwind and I had so so so much to do that I made a promise to myself, I am never ever again going to take so many appointments for ones week. I totally forgot about one and almost forgot a second one too.
But this weeks posts are going to be back regularly and in order (I need that for my sanity and also you guys know what´s up each day).
But let´s get to today´s topic. Who gets super dry skin in the winter months and hates it? I bet there where many hands up in the air. Me too guys, but I have found a product line I love and always switch back when winter time rolls around.  

The Neutrogena body lotion is my absolute favorite when it comes to dry, itchy and flaky skin. There probably isn´t a feeling I hate more than getting out of the shower and having the feeling of tight skin. Everybody who get´s extreme dry skin knows what I am talking about when I say your skin feels like it is too small for you.

I use the Neutrogena body lotion for very dry skin after every shower/bath. It enriches your skin with the moisture it needs while it soaks in very quick and leaves a smooth and enjoyable feeling on your skin. Also the hand cream is the perfect addition to throw into your handbag for when your are on the go. Washing and sanitizing your hands many times throughout the days (flu season is right around the corner) leaves your hands dry and itchy. Also the prettiest nail polish doesn´t look good when your hands are dry and bloody.

So for this reason I am giving away two sets of Neutrogena body and hand lotion. Be sure to enter below cause the cold is rolling in and you´ll be needing all the help to take care of your skin. Good luck.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

10 Days of Christmas Giveaways – Day 7 – the business girl…

….

Good morning friends,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
who doesn´t know the pain of getting ready and out of the house on time every morning. There are days where nothing works or nothing fits or everything takes too long and again you are running late. There is only so much you can prepare the evening before to save steps and save time but also this is limited.
One thing I really like to have on hand no matter where I go is coffee. Isn´t the world a much nicer place with a cup of hot and fresh coffee in you hand. You get me right?!

So whether you are going to work by car or the public transportation, a thermal coffee mug is always right on place. You have your coffee with you it immensly helps to look over some things. But why a making coffee at home and take a mug with you. So here are 6 reasons why you should consider on using a thermal coffee mug and brewing your coffee at home:

– not waisting time waiting at a coffee shop
– not spending to much money on a cup of coffee
– carrying around a chic and sophisticated coffee mug
– not spilling your coffee over your jacket or handbag (who isn´t familiar with that)
– reducing trash by using a reusable mug
– coffee stays hot much longer
 For all of the reasons I am giving away one Emsa thermal coffee mug in a beautiful snow white shade to one lucky reader.
Be sure to enter my giveaway below. 
Thanks for stopping by. Take care.

10 Days of Christmas Giveaways – Day 6 – cuddle up…

sweater Monki currently sold out similar tree sweater here and here / lips NYX Perfect Red liner Spicy / Santa mug local similar here and here / mermaid blanket old similar here
….

Good morning friends,
(Post contains affiliate links/Post enthält Affiliate LInks/Werbung/Markennennung-not sponsored)
who doesn´t love to cuddle up on the sofa with a hot beverage and watch Christmas movies during the advent time? I know none.
My absolute favorite Christmas movie this year is Christmas with The Kranks. I have already seen it three times and it is hilarious each and every time but also touching. I really like a good mixture in a Christmas movie. And I love Tim Allen. I watchend evey episode of Home Improvement.
So since normal blankets always tend to have a spot where the cold comes in, a mermaid blanket (got this one for Christmas last year from my SIL) goes around yourself and also covers your feet so you don´t freeze. I think the concept is great and it is looking really funny and cool somehow. I like it a lot (and Chloe always tries to sneak in). 

So for today´s #10daysofchristmas giveaway and because the temperatures dropped so much I am giving away a cozy mermaid blanket in a beautiful blue color.  


I still have 4 giveaways left so be sure to check back every day and then we are running on normal schedule again. I have planned two huge gift guides to give you some gifting inspo as well as and also this years table scapes from our holiday party and for our Christmas dinner and two traditional recipes you could even use for Christmas dinner.


Be sure to enter below and good luck.
