Kendra Scott Giveaway!

17 Jun


Nothing brightens up a Monday like a giveaway, am I right? So as I’ve mentioned before, I’m the Editor of a beauty website based here in Austin, and the fabulous jewelry designer Kendra Scott is an Austin local as well. So me and my friends Evelyn and Nikki put this wedding video together,  along with a giveaway from our friends at Kendra Scott. We’re giving away four pairs of Kendra Scott earrings, if you’re interested simply watch the video and vote for your favorite hairstyle in the video comments 🙂

Yup. This happiness. Pure joy. There was snow in Central Park and these swings were totally calling our name. We waited our turn to get a couple next to each other, and then we were 5 years old. Em swung so high I was sure she was gonna swing right round the pole. Honestly is there anything better? Em’s gone back to London now and I don’t know when I’ll get the chance to see her again, but as she put it it was ‘the happiest she’s been in the last 10 years.’ Big call, I know. Our friend Katie who we stayed with conceded that it was in her top 5 ‘sections’ of all time. I’ll take that.


Yunno what else is pure joy? Winning a giveaway! And it’s time now for the winners winners chicken dinners!



Congratulations girls!
I’ll be contacting you shortly for your deets.
Thank you to everyone who entered, and muchos thank yous to MadeByGirl and HTC OneX+ for the opportunity to reward my lovely readers!
Hope you all have a stellar weekend 🙂

So things are shaping up around here! On my first night I laid my head down to sleep, and things didn’t feel quite right. So I got up and moved my bed to another wall. Laying there, things still felt a little off kilter… Three moves later I finally found a spot that was juuuust right. In an effort to save space I ditched a nightstand (you saw the pair here) and pushed my bed up against the wall. Here are a few flicks of my nightstand as it looks now.

Here’s a quick run down of what I keep on my bedside table:

  • table – a diy project using Ikea’s Rast drawers
  • antique lamp – Howl Interiors, a furniture design studio I worked at
  • orchids – my favorite flower, notoriously difficult to maintain
  • book – my favorite book of the moment, Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende
  • journal – my Q&A a Day journal, it asks you one question a day and lasts five years, so you can compare your answer for that question on that day over five years. What a great gift, thanks M
  • perfume – if I had a signature scent, this would be it: Soleil Liquide Memoire
  • glass of water – I always keep one by my bed when I sleep. Zara Home glass and Anthropologie coaster
  • skull print – gifted by MadeByGirl, it gives my space the edge it needed

You read right, GIVEAWAY time!
And now the most exciting part: MadeByGirl is giving away an item of YOUR choice to one super lucky Fuji Files reader!
This giveaway is now closed.
You could of course choose this gold skull, but there are so many good pieces to choose from. This giveaway will be open for one week (closing Monday February 18).
Good luck!
This giveaway is open to everyone, including international readers!
