Lamps Plus Giveaway in Radiant Orchid

Pantone Radiant Orchid Lamps Plus Giveaway | Frock Files

Every year, I get a kick out of Pantone’s announcement about their color of the year, and this year I’m especially excited about their selection: Radiant Orchid! To help you kick of 2014 in a Pantone perfect way, I’ve partnered with Lamps Plus to give away one of the Radiant Orchid lamps from their Color Plus Lighting Collection.

On a personal note, I think that our Lamps Plus lamp has actually helped stave off the slump I felt last year during these very short days. We live in new construction with no overhead lights in the bedrooms or living room. We put our Lamps Plus lamp in the corner living room and — voila! — it went from cavernous to cozy. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it has made all the difference in the world for my mood. When it gets dark at 4pm, I actually look forward to turning on the lights and getting cozy with a hot cup of tea.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment about your favorite room in your home (and why!), and follow Lamps Plus on Twitter and Instagram. The winner will be announced this Wednesday, December 18th on my Facebook page, and contacted directly by email. Lamps must be ordered by December 31, 2013. Sorry, the drawing is only open to US residents 18 and over.

Frock Files is Two!

Frock Files Second Anniversary Giveaway

Frock Files is officially two years old! Yep, two years ago I dusted off this old domain, logged into WordPress, and wrote up a post about my favorite underwear. Even though it’s a little embarrassing to look back at where things started, it’s also a reminder of how much I’ve learned since then.

When I began this blog, I just wanted a place to store things that I loved. From there, I peeked timidly into the world of social media and found myself swept into an amazing community of creative, inspired people who encouraged me to keep going. Though I’m still figuring out my own rhythm, the blog has grown by leaps and bounds over the past year. And I continue to be thrilled by every comment, like, and link back! I feel so lucky that you all come to visit whenever you can.

To celebrate two great years, I’m giving away a few things to make the season brighter. To enter, leave a comment below telling me about the one thing you’re most excited about this holiday season. For a bonus entry, tweet about the giveaway with the hashtag #frockfilesturnstwo. I’ll announce the winner on Friday!

Indulge Your Summer Skin (and a Giveaway!): CLOSED

Frock Files | Nivea Indulgence Giveaway
The change in the seasons makes my skin crazy. Throughout the winter, my skin gets dry and flaky everywhere – especially on my cheeks, my elbows, and my legs. And while summer offers a reprieve, I still find that I need to get into a routine to get my skin looking healthy. Participating in the Nivea Indulgence challenge for two weeks gave me just the push I needed. Here’s how I’m taking care of my skin this summer:

Eliminate: One of the things I neglect is exfoliation, so when Nivea sent me their Touch of Renewal lathering body scrub I was excited to see how much of a difference it made. The changes weren’t just in the rough spots, but also in areas where my skin had become a little congested, like my back. I’ve also begun to exfoliate the skin on my face using a glycolic serum once every three days.

Get Oily: As someone with an oily T-zone, I thought it was totally crazy the first time an aesthetician suggested that I try cleansing with oil. But it turns out that she was absolutely right! Check out my post on how I began cleansing with Jojoba oil, which I’ll continue to do all year long.

Find Balance: Because of the humidity and heat in the summertime, a lot of people forget to moisturize – I’m guilty of doing the same. But sweating takes a lot of moisture from your body and so does the sun, so it’s important to get some moisturizer into your routine. Once I started using Nivea’s Touch of Smoothness moisturizing body wash, I found that my elbows got smooth and no longer required extra moisturizer to keep from becoming ashy in appearance, and I switched to a lighter moisturizer for my legs.

Hydrate: Drink. More. Water. It’s so much easier to drink water when it’s warm out, so make use of this time to get your skin glowing! The more hydration you can bring your skin during the warm months, the better off you’ll be when it gets chilly again.

To help you get your summer skin glowing, Nivea is inviting you to join in on the indulgence. They’re offering one Frock Files reader a gift box containing the two Nivea products mentioned above, a $50 Bed Bath & Beyond gift card, and a cloudlike, fluffy robe.

Entrants must live in the U.S. and be at least 18 years of age. To enter, let me know what you’re indulging in this summer in the comment section below, and don’t forget to log your entry in the Rafflecopter! This giveaway closes on Sunday, June 30th at midnight and the winner will be contacted by email.
