‘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!

  1. I would either go with the Madewell Dionne Sleeveless Dress or the Air by Alice + Olivia dress Draped Boatneck Dress :) ottaviamontingelli (at) gmail dot com


  2. Oh my! I’d love to get a pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes so I could show off my skin this summer in a pretty dress :) Thanks!


  3. I like the Band of Outsiders dress for something shorter to show off some leg, but I’m really into finding new maxi dresses right now so my favorite maxi is the Lunaria B dress.


  4. I would love to get one of these dresses–


  5. 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!


  6. Wow! What a sweet giveaway…Thanks for offering it! At the moment I’m lusting after comfy, t-shirt-like dresses, like the ones made by Splendid. Any would do! ;) Would looove me some Nivea lotion along with the chance to be able to shop at Shopbob :D


  7. I love the color and style by PJK Patterson J kincaid. Carvin dress would work for day,beach or night:) And enough skin so show off Nivea at work. And these legs and arms could always use a little extra help:) BlessingS suezanne


  8. I’m loving the Rebecca Taylor Aurora Tie Waist Dress! So feminine and soft….great to show off tan, toned legs! Love Nivea :)


  9. What a great idea for a giveaway! I would love to wear the MinkPink Wonderland Mini Dress! It’s great for going out, and I love the bold, neon print!


  10. 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.


  11. 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!


  12. 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.
