Schoolhouse Electric Giveaway!

Schoolhouse Electric Giveaway!

I’m going to let you in on a secret: I’m constantly wavering back and forth between staying in our condo or moving into a single-family home. But ever since we redecorated our bedroom, I’ve been leaning toward staying because I’m falling in love with our home again. Next on my list is the kitchen, which is fine but bland as anything, and I’ll be turning to the stylish accents of Schoolhouse Electric!

Funnily enough, I hadn’t known about Portland-based Schoolhouse Electric until I’d left the city. My friend Kirsten Neiman of Restored Style fame took over their PR awhile back, which got my attention because Kirsten has better taste than pretty much everyone I know.

Schoolhouse Electric Giveaway!

Since then, I’ve become a huge Schoolhouse Electric fan girl and I’m thrilled to be partnering with them for this 14 Days of Holiday Love giveaway! If you’ve got your eye on one of their fabulous pieces, you absolutely need to enter to win a $100 gift card. Here are five ways for you to enter:

1. Visit the 14 Days of LOVE giveaway Facebook page.
2. Follow @Schoolhouse on Instagram.
3. Follow @FrockFiles on instagram.
4. Share your favorite Schoolhouse Electric item on Instagram and be sure to mention the giveaway and @FrockFiles and @Schoolhouse.
5. Visit Schoolhouse Electric on Facebook.

And, since I couldn’t resist, I’ve created a roundup of the things I would love to see under my Christmas tree this year, for me or for James! Okay, so the chair would be pretty obvious all wrapped up. But a girl can dream, right?

Gift Guide: For the Coolest Kids

Win $150 to the DLK Shop!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4

If you’re anything like me, you probably have some pretty cool kids in your life. Take my niece and nephew, for instance. These were kids who, from day one, had their own sense of style. Where I grew up in a time where everyone wore matching Sanrio-themed leggings and had basically the same haircut, Akira and Jolie make their own fashion rules, accessorize with freedom, and hop on trends before I even know that they exist. (Jolie, at age four, showed up in an asymmetrical moto jacket and little black boots the last time I saw her–all chosen on her own.)

So I’m not going to the usual kids stores to shop for my favorite littles. Not only do I want to buy them unique things they’ll love, but I also really want to support indie sellers this season. So it was a relief when my friend Kim of Design Life Kids (DLK) opened her online boutique, which is chock full of hip, fun clothes, toys and accessories for kids (along with a bunch of covetable houseware items for their parents), all in one place!

Today, I’m joining up with Kim and our fellow bloggers (and true friends) Lindsey of Cafe Johnsonia, MJ of Pars Caeli, and Melissa of Lulu the Baker to give away one $150 gift card to DLK so that you can get a jump on your holiday shopping! To enter, leave a comment below naming your favorite item from the DLK boutique. For bonus entries, like DLK on Instagram–you won’t regret it; Kim has the loveliest photos of her beautiful girls! Lindsey, MJ, Melissa, and I will also be posting our favorite DLK items to Instagram today, so for more bonus entries you can re-gram one of our images.

The contest closes on Thursday at midnight EST and will be announced on Friday morning on our Instagram accounts! Best of luck!

14 Days of Summer Love – MZ Wallace Giveaway!

MZ Wallace Giveaway | Frock Files

A couple of weeks ago, I read an article about extremely high achieving entrepreneurs and learned a secret to success: simplify. Many of them eat the same things every day, wear just one color all the time, and live by a very regular schedule, all because eliminating those choices allows more room in their brains for their businesses. Although I’ll probably always be someone who goes through three wardrobe changes before leaving the house, I can see how this type of streamlining comes in handy.

In fact, ever since I began using my MZ Wallace Fiona tote, I haven’t had to switch bags at all, and that’s actually relieved a lot of stress. Whenever I used to switch bags, I’d inevitably forget to transfer something important–lip balm, sunglasses, parking pass–but now that I can use the same bag for almost everything, I could pass for a Girl Scout. I’m so prepared!

Snack Time Just Got Hotter

Buffalo Style Chicken Jerky, Dried Mango and Nuts Trail Mix // Frock Files

Whenever I go out, I try to take anything unnecessary out of my big bag, but I’ve come to realize it’s all necessary — including snacks. I tend to go from totally fine to absolutely starving in a snap, so I always try to carry something to munch on. The problem I run into is that everything transportable that I can leave in my bag tends to be so sweet, and that makes me feel funny. So when Molly’s friend John came to me with samples of his Meat n Nuts mix, I said, “Yes! Yes! Send me samples!” And he did. And now they’re gone.

The “meat” component of the Meat n Nuts mixes come sealed in their own little pouch and are made of dehydrated grass fed beef and free range chicken. Although the name conjures images of meat n’ potatoes kinds of dudes, the mixes themselves have been thoughtfully created over two years. The team searched high and low to work with ethical farmers who create high-quality products. It’s been a labor of love, and that’s something I can get behind.

Grass Fed Beef and Free Range Chicken Jerky + Nuts Trail Mix // Frock Files

The mixes come in three delicious and unusual flavors: honey siracha beef jerky with dried cranberries, cracked black pepper beef jerky with nuts, and buffalo style chicken jerky with mango. I can’t decide which is my favorite, but I’m a sucker for mango.

Want to try Meat n Nuts? It’s not in stores yet, but leave a comment with the flavor you’d most like to try and you just might win a pack of your own. The team is also running a Kickstarter, so share the link to that page and you’ll get a double entry. The drawing will happen on Friday afternoon. Good luck!

Meat n’ Nuts sent me product for this post but all opinions are my own. This stuff really is super delicious.

14 Days of Love Giveaway | Eat Boutique

14 Days of Love Giveaway from Eat Boutique from Joy Uyeno on Vimeo.

Happy Valentine’s Week, friends! If you haven’t heard by now, I’ve teamed up with thirteen other incredible bloggers and each of us are hosting a giveaway each day up to Valentine’s Day. We’re calling the series 14 Days of Love — and the giveaways are pretty fabulous. You can follow along each day by liking the 14 Days of Love Facebook page.

Today it’s my turn, and I’m working with Eat Boutique to give away a custom foodie care package worth $185! Eat Boutique originally started as a respected food blog, but once owner Maggie Battista began putting together care packages featuring gourmet food from small batch vendors, they were so in-demand that she opened a shop. Today, the shop is thriving and Maggie is well-known for her spectacular local events. She’s even signed on with a publisher to pen a cookbook! All this couldn’t have happened to a nicer person, either. Maggie is a total bright light.

And for Frock Files, she’s put together a very special care package filled with all of her favorite things! While you can buy all kinds of care packages at Eat Boutique, and every item in this package is available a la cart in the shop, this specific package is the Maggie Special, created just for you. Everything I’ve tasted from the boutique has been mouthwatering and delightful. (My favorite are the Fixx Chocolates with praline crisp with passion fruit pate de fruits, which are pretty much two bites of heaven.) You’re in for a treat. Scroll down and leave a comment to enter the giveaway!

Since the video moves so quickly, here are all the items in this care package:

Evy Tea Green Tea Fig Pomegranate // Empire Mayonnaise Co. White Truffle // Sofra Rose Petal Jam // Simple and Crisp Pear Fruit Crisps // Fixx Chocolates: Andy’s Bar // Didi Davis Rose Sugar // Treat Bake Shop Spiced Pecans // EHChocolatier French Hot Chocolate // Morris Kitchen Syrups Grenadine // Boncora Biscotti
