Hello my Beauties,

At least it’s beautiful warm and sunny weather here at my end of the world. What about you? Are you rocking your wedges, sunglasses and shorts?

You probably have read yesterday’s post written by {Pink Lady Beauty} on how to find brands and discover new products from all over the world. Let me guess, you got excited?

So today i will sum up a few things for you and share 2 great tips. I can’t believe saying that, but there are 3 different giveaways running under my name right now, that you might be interested in joining.
I guess two of them you already have found on my own blog.
Avene and The Little Fox

The third one is new, but not less exciting. If you like trying new brands, this is the one for you to enter! 
You could get lucky!

A few weeks ago Miss Angie from {My So-Called Chaos} did an interview with me, asking questions about my background, why i decided to start blogging, what my beauty regimen is and what beauty advice i had for her readers. 
I really liked the fact, that Angie tried finding new & different kind of questions. Thanks for that, Angie!
Hope you enjoy finding some new facts about me, my Beauties. 

So if you know me well enough, of course you guessed there would be some kind of a giveaway following the interview, right? Well you wont be disappointed.
How do you feel about a 5-piece set of Aqua skin care products by the german brand Balea? 

The set includes:
1) eye roll on with thermal water (for a fresh start in the day)
2) peel off face mask with algae extracts to moisturize your skin
3) day time moisturizer in gelcream form with “blue extract” (with spf)
4) moisturising serum for intensive care (which usually goes under the cream moisturizer)
5) Aqua spray (especially great for summer or for your purse on the go) similar to Avene thermal water.

I used the aqua spray and the peel off mask last year quite a few times in summer & loved it. It’s really refreshing.
Does is sound good to you? That’s not everything. 

There are going to be two winners this time. That’s right.

The second set includes: a Strawberry Shower, Scrub & Moisture Set from The Body Shop.
1) Strawberry Body Polish – gentle daily exfoliation and cleansing
2) Strawberry shower gel
3) Strawberry body butter
4) Bath Lily

My quick tip for you today would be on the Velvet Diamond nail polish by Misslyn. (5,95€)
You know how this whole liquid sand or sand nail hype took over the nail polish world?! So Misslyn brought their own textured polish collection on the market and became quite popular already here in Germany.
Here is a german online store, that does european shipping.
velvet diamond 85 royal blueThe one i have here is  in 85 royal blue, which is a really suiting name, if you ask me. The effect is velvety and matte as it claims to be. Love how th little sparkling glitter give that polish something special, without being overpowering at the same time. It dries really quickly and is almost totally opaque in one coat.

The actual application was very easy, as the texture is buttery and goes on very smoothly. There was no chipping for almost a whole week, which is really great!
For a little variety i added 124 Heavenly stars by GinaTricot on my ring finger, since this top coat has same kind of blue & rose glitter in it. So if you prefer using a clear top coat over your textured polish, you can totally go for that one.

What kind of textured polishes are you wearing these days?

Until next time – stay beautiful.
