#DARETOBARE challenge and giveaway!


‘Tis the season to start showing some skin!

In Florida, we usually skim over spring and go straight into summer weather come May. My friends and I are already spending our weekends soaking up the sun, having BBQs, and planning day trips to the beach.

This means more time in swimsuits, shorts, and minidresses; and I’ll take all help I can get for soft, firmer-looking skin that feels as healthy as it looks. You, too?

Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion with Q10 is a lightweight moisturizer with Hydra IQ Technology. It’s proven to firm and tighten skin’s surface in as little as two weeks, while simultaneously providing up to 24 hours of hydration for softer, smoother, and more toned skin. After using Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion with Q10, my skin felt soft and lightly hydrated — without the heavy, greasy feeling of some other body lotions — and looked toned and firm!

    Such a great selection of accessories – although no cute dresses in my size. I would definitely splurge on either the beautiful Mar Y Sol Valencia tote for the perfect summer bag…or the Tory Burch Eddie Snake Ballet flats. I had a similar, less expensive pair that fell apart after 2 years and these are just what I have been looking for! I will definitely be trying the Nivea cream too – I could use some firming and toning for sure!

    This is the best giveaway, gosh! I’m loving Shopbop right now, what a great site! My current dress obsession would be best described by the Dolce Vita Hanni Sleeveless Dress in white, because it can be dressed up, down, or anywhere in between and has a gorgeous open back.

  53. 5.31.13

    Shopbop.com is my nirvana {err Nivea}. One trend that I totally would embrace this summer with my crazy moisturized and firm skin would be the one piece bathing suit. Loving the insanely chic Marc Jacobs one piece that looks like liquid metal. In the meantime, I will be over here doing squats!

    What a great giveaway! I love ShopBop, but I’d say I’m lusting over the Madewell Transport tote so that would be my first choice.
