April 8, 2015

Instagram Challenge | Earth Day | #UGInstaFun

 

 

The next Instagram Challenge theme is EARTH DAY! This year marks the 45th anniversary of the day that many people consider the birth of the modern environmental movement. Whether you’re planning your own Earth Day event, exploring a new landscape, or opting to bike more and drive less, we encourage you to spend more time outdoors making a positive impact. Big or small, every action counts. We want to see how you’re showing your appreciation! While sharing your Earth-loving photos, be sure to use the hashtag #UGInstafun for a chance to win a $50 gift card. Visit here to see the entries we’ve received so far.

From all of us at UncommonGoods, we hope you have an impactful Earth Day!

Congratulations to @jce for winning our Architecture Instagram Challenge with this stunning shot of Taos Pueblo.

Instagram Challenge: ARCHITECTURE

March 16, 2015

Instagram Challenge | Architecture

The next Instagram Challenge theme is ARCHITECTURE. We can all agree that one of the best parts of traveling, near or far, is discovering the special landmarks that distinguish a new place. Here at UncommonGoods, nothing gets us more excited than interacting with beautiful craftsmanship. But even in our home in New York City, we tend to spend all winter rushing past our surroundings, ignoring this city’s beautiful details in order to find refuge from the snow. Now that spring is upon us, it’s time to get outside and explore! We want to see the architectural designs that make you stop in your tracks. While sharing your most wow-worthy photos, be sure to use the hashtag #UGInstafun for a chance to win a $50 gift card. Visit here to see the entries we’ve received so far.

Congratulations to @nellapasta for winning our St. Patrick’s Day Instagram Challenge with a photo of her holiday breakfast and her grandmother’s Irish tea towel!

Instagram Challenge: ST. PATRICK’S DAY

February 26, 2015

Instagram Challenge | St. Patrick's Day

It’s time to test your luck on the newest Instagram Challenge: ST. PATRICK’S DAY! For some, this timeless Irish tradition means bagpipes, kilts and corned beef and cabbage. For others, it means Guinness beer and four-leaf clovers. However you’re celebrating, we can all agree that this holiday is a great opportunity to put on our green party hats and officially bid farewell to those lingering winter blues. We want to see how you’re celebrating March 17! While sharing your luckiest photos, be sure to use the hashtag #UGInstafun for a chance to win a $50 gift card. Visit here to see the golden entries we’ve received so far.

From all of us at UncommonGoods, we wish you and your lads a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Instagram Challenge: FURRY FRIENDS

Instagram Challenge | Furry Friends (Part 2)

The next Instagram Challenge theme is FURRY FRIENDS. It’s safe to say that many of us are ready to bid winter a passive-agressive farewell. It was fun while it lasted, but, as usual, winter has overstayed its polite welcome. With exactly one month until the start of spring, it’s time to beat these lingering winter blues by introducing some more warmth and fuzziness into our lives. We’re excited to bring back our most adorable Instagram challenge yet! Whether it’s the dog that’s been keeping you cozy all winter, or the cat that’s already taken over your Instagram feed, we want to see your cutest non-human friends! While sharing your best shots, be sure to use the hashtag #UGInstafun for a chance to win a $50 gift card. Visit here to see the entries we’ve received so far.

Congratulations to @alexiswinston for winning our Comfort Food Instagram Challenge with this delicious shot! Her accompanying caption matches our thoughts exactly: “Comfort food is the result of an experience. For Kate, the experience that gives the comforting feeling to her food is a full day of baking; Kneading the dough with her own hands only to taste and share that process later.”

Instagram Challenge: COMFORT FOOD

January 17, 2015

Instagram Challenge | Comfort Food | #UGInstaFun | UncommonGoods

The next Instagram Challenge theme is COMFORT FOOD.  Our team is not one to shy away from this culinary genre. If you visit our Brooklyn headquarters on an average Wednesday, you’re sure to leave with a belly full of homemade sugary goodness. Unless, of course, you visit us with a thick trail of snow to clean up, like our recent visitor Juno. (Really, where are Juno’s manners?) But it’s messy guests like Juno that teach us the strongest antidote for winter blahs: simple, hearty, sentimental recipes. Even in bone-chilling temperatures, these meals never fail to trigger cozy nostalgia. With less than two months left of winter hibernation, it’s the perfect time to share what dishes give you that good ol’ comforting feeling. While sharing your delicious pick-me-ups, be sure to use the hashtag #UGInstafun for a chance to win a $50 gift card! Visit here to see all of the entries we’ve received so far and scroll down to view our favorite comfort food essentials from UncommonGoods. (Click on the images below to snag these for yourself!)

Instagram Challenge: WISHTAGRAMS

December 31, 2014

Instagram Challenge | Wishtagrams

The next Instagram Challenge theme is WISHTAGRAMS! As you may have seen on our homepage, we’re kicking off 2015 by celebrating the Wishing Ball. In addition to Jill Henrietta Davis’ beautiful craftsmanship, we absolutely love the concept behind her design. Each shimmering ball of hand-blown, blue glass comes with 52 tiny slips of paper for you to pause once a week and record a message of hope, inspiration, or gratitude. We decided to apply this same philosophy to the first Instagram Challenge of 2015! Whether it’s finally traveling to your dream destination, or mastering that hard-to-grasp yoga pose in your daily practice, we want to see a photo and caption that describes what you’re wishing for in the next 12 months. While dreaming about the year ahead, be sure to use the hashtag #UGInstafun for a chance to win a Wishing Ball and $50 at UncommonGoods! Visit here to see all of the creative entries we’ve received so far.

Congratulations to @heythererosetta for winning our Favorite Insta of 2014 Instagram Challenge with this unforgettable moment of her Golden Retriever at the lake!
