My International Christmas Giveaway 2014 *closed*

It’s the jingling & tinselling time of year again, and my 2nd International Christmas Giveaway begins today. Read now how to enter, the giveaway ends on Monday!


This very symbolic and beauteous Mnya II bracelet (€145) made of cruelty-free, amethyst coloured silk with an adornment hand-crafted from ethical and ecological gold by Amalena has caught my eye in summer, as I visited select brands during the eco showroom in Berlin:Beautycalypse-Christmas-Giveaway-MnyaII-Amalena-AmethystI have now purchased one for myself, and one for one of you to win – so I like to see it as a sort of a luxurious friendship bracelet. The colour also splendidly reflects one of my BEAUTYCALYPSE colours: amethyst, emerald green and neon green.

ON A RELATED NOTE: I had the opportunity to talk to the Amalena founder Johanna in autumn, and there is an interview with her and other wonderful changemaker founders coming soon. You might also have spotted the brand name in my post on ethical gold, and I applaud you for noticing.

It was also a spontaneous decision on my part – as you know, there is no marketing strategy behind BEAUTYCALYPSE and no advertisers to please. I thought it would be a beautiful way for me to say Thank You to you for being here 🙂
And another Thank You goes to Amalena who have generously suggested to take care of the international shipping for me!


Well, partly because the decision was spontaneous, partly because I want the winner to receive the prize well in time for Christmas, and mostly because it’s a readers giveaway, and I want this giveaway to reach you, my dear Adventurers, first.
