So, I started thinking…When we think about fashion events, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? I don’t know about you, but I think of SWAG!! Also known as the “free stuff” that companies and brands give out at events; swag is what a lot of us look forward to. And that’s just what you’re going to get.
Torrid, the destination for trendy plus-size fashion, wants you to win this fierce package worth $275! You’ll get a Hello Kitty Black Patent Embossed Overnight Bag, Hello Kitty Denim Wallet, Leopard Sequin Laptop Case, Black Zip Studded Wristlet, Z. Cavarrici Couture Sunglasses, Z. Cavarrici Couture Perfume, Supermodel Candles by Whitney Thompson, and assorted hair accessories.
Carolina Pad, a place to find fun, trendy, and cool stationary, caught my eye at BlogHer 2010. I knew I had to get them involved in this giveaway. Their products are not only fashionable, but very practical. It’s what every lady on the go needs! Carolina Pad’s notebooks, binders, and other products definitely stand out from the crowd. You’ll have the chance to win this ultimate “red hot” prize pack!
T.J.Maxx, a brand name and designer fashion haven, wants you to bask in their 60% off department store prices with this $100 gift card! With over 900 stores nationwide, you’ve definitely got options. Maybe you can get those pair of shoes you’ve had your eye on or that handbag that calls you every time you step into your local T.J.Maxx. You’re welcome Maxxinistas!
Lingerie.com was created to bring you the sexiest lingerie! And no giveaway would be complete without a little bit of sexy. I know you’ll definitely feel sexy in these sheer thing highs with the back seam in black and white. If this doesn’t get someone’s heart pumping…well…we will just leave it at that.
Cosabella believes that a women’s lingerie should be able to reflect her every mood. Being that they offer their collection in more than 30 colors, there’s a chance they’ve got all the moods covered.

Sofia Valle is not only smart, but she’s creative as well. If you need jewelry to tie your outfit together, just check out her web site! She even donates a percentage of her proceeds to Turning leaves Foundation, a children’s foundation for Chronic Illness. The “Brown Sugar” necklace below will make a great addition to your fall wardrobe.
Size Appeal believes that clothes should “enhance and not inhibit curvy women.” That’s exactly what they do with their “to shop is to live” philosophy. Just look at their logo! “Be bold and sexy, because you can.” You’ll be able to do that with a $50 certificate to spend on whatever you like on their web site!
For the month of October, Eucerin wants to educate people on the science behind skin aging and teach them how to take the necessary steps to prevent wrinkles and keep their skin looking healthy. And this is what you’ll be able to do with one bottle of Daily Skin Balance Body Lotion and Hand Creme. Don’t forget to take the Eucerin Skin FIRST Pledge.

New York, New York…you stole my heart. I love this city and lucky for me the 2010 BlogHer conference was held here. I had so much fun making new friends, networking, and learning from the best in the blogging world. Plus there was so much swag! Amazing!
But, it wasn’t the perfect trip…let me briefly explain. My flight out of LAX was delayed and made me miss my connection. I was rebooked which delayed my arrival by 6 hours! I checked into the hotel and that night my laptop crashed. My cell phone battery was dying after only 30 minutes of being fully charged and the camera I borrowed didn’t work. I was having a tech nightmare. So, the photos you see are via my cell phone (after a new battery) and a small Kodak hand held camcorder. I apologize for the quality.
I promised to not let any of my technical difficulties ruin my time in New York. Besides, I had some fabulous clothes courtesy of
**BlogHer Recap: You already know I had an amazing time! Not only did I meet amazing women, but I had to the chance to get my makeup done at the P&G Home, I got tons of swag, and I met model Veronica Webb (very nice) and Bruce Jenner. I even took the time to talk to HauteLook, Shop Style, and White House Black Market about carrying extended sizes. ASSETS by Sara Blakely were on hand and we had a great conversation. Hopefully, I made great connections! Here’s a slideshow of some pics:
In honor of my trip to N.Y.C for BlogHer 2010, I have partnered up with Lingerie.com for another great giveaway! This amazing city is such a fashion inspiration and I can’t wait to take it all in! One thing I’ve always loved about this concrete jungle is the night life.
Imagine yourself going out for “A Night in N.Y.C.” and you’d really like to add a sexy twist to your outfit. Nothing is sexier than wearing a piece of lingerie to spice things up.
