First Christmas Giveaway of the season!! CLOSED!!!

THE GAME IS CLOSED!!! We are definitely feeling the Christmas spirit and we want you guys to feel it too. So in order to do something special for our avid readers we teamed up with Gosh and Tigerlily for some wonderful giveaways. All you have to do is: Add us on Snapchat (@rvkfashion) and leave your comment on facebook. We will pick the winner by the end of this week – GOOD LUCK!! Let´s see what we have in store for you:                                              Catchy eyes mascara gives curve and “cats eye effect” to the lashes. It will also provide delicate separation and definition. The fantastic brush and bulk make the application smooth and the Catchy Eyes Mascara will not clump or flake. Furthermore, there is only need for one or two coats of mascara. After the first layer the lashes will already have the curve effect. 2. Use alone for a radiant even finish or use it for strobing with a few drops where the sun would naturally hit your face, includingthe bridge of the nose, tip of the chin, center of the forehead, cupid’s bow, brow bones, and cheekbones. 3. Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid gently exfoliates built-up layers of dead skin, just like your skin did naturally when you were younger. It also effectively unclogs pores, optimizing skin renewal and clarity for remarkably smoother, perfect-looking skin, smaller pores, a refined texture, and less visible lines and wrinkles. You will see results the first time you use it! 4. Apply blush, bronzer, foundation, and even concealer effortlessly with this multipurpose brush. Clean brush regularly in warm, mild soapy water and dry flat before use. 5. This Gosh strobe kit is…


GIVEAWAY: Iðunn Box

GIVEAWAY: Iðunn Box

We’re all a little indecisive about our makeup and skincare products because hey, one wrong move and you’ve entered breakout/dryout city. At the same time, products in Iceland are quite expensive, especially if you have to import them. Therefore it can be arduous, costly, and inconvenient to try out new products to figure out what routine works best for you—and trust me, figuring out your ideal skincare routine is all about trial and error. Thankfully there’s the Iðunn Box, a monthly subscription box with a mixture of trial-sized and full-sized products containing everything from masks to makeup. I was lucky enough to get the September box, which I reviewed on the RFD snapchat (rvkfashion) and have been avidly using since. I was incredibly impressed with the selection of the box—from the Anatomicals Puffy The Eyebag Slayer Eye Mask (which I now sleep with) to the Essie Sand Tropez nail polish, everything was super timely and great. My highlights? Paula’s Choice Daily Smoothing 5% AHA: If you have acne or discoloration, this stuff is probably the best thing you can do for your skin. Yes, you’ll have a few weeks of purging, but after that, your skin will be smooth and dewy and sexy and perfect. I’m not even kidding, I started using this stuff last year and I have had no problems with acne since then (and my skin used to be disgusting.) Therefore I was so jazzed when I saw it in the Iðunn box because I want everyone to try it. AHAs are so much better than physical exfoliation and BHAs if you have acne, but they’re pretty hard to find. Paula’s Choice though, is the holy grail of AHAs. Still not convinced? Just read the reviews on the Paula’s Choice website. Seriously, this stuff is like the caviar of skincare…


GIVEAWAY: Viðja Jewelry

GIVEAWAY: Viðja Jewelry

If you follow us on Facebook (and you really should!) you’ll know that we’re currently doing a giveaway with Viðja jewelry. What’s Viðja jewelry? Well, it’s a new Icelandic jewelry brand designed and run by Þórhildur Þrándardóttir. She just started it this year. In Viðja, each unique piece is handmade using materials like sterling silver, 14 karat gold, freshwater pearls and mother of pearls. “I like very minimalist style and form with clean lines.” Þórhildur tells me. “I started to make my own jewelry because I couldn’t find jewelry that i wanted to wear myself.” She’s currently in school to be a goldsmith. “Nobody was doing exactly what I wanted to buy.” Viðja’s pieces are minimalist in the chicest way. They are statement pieces for sure, but they aren’t ostentatious or garish. Their beauty is nuanced, restrained, and oh so classy. You could easily transition them between a walk in the park and a cocktail party. Þórhildur tells me she looks at the jewelry as an extension of her own style, which she describes as modern and sophisticated. “[Viðja] is a little casual and edgy.” My favourite of their line? I’m obsessed with these shell and silver earrings. I would pair them with a silk camisole, black blazer, and distressed motorcycle boots. I’m totally with Þórhildur—casual and edgy is the best. The Giveaway:  Fancy some fabulous earrings—the ones in the above photo—for you and your friend? Simply like our Facebook and Viðja jewelry and post a comment on our giveaway post to tell us which one of your friends you think deserves to win a pair. Winners will be chosen next week!
