Lucky Bloke condom





Hello everyone! Did you know it’s National Condom week until the 21st of February? I didn’t, but now that I do, I thought we should celebrate by giving away a sample pack of FREE CONDOMS from Lucky Bloke! Lucky Bloke is a site that sells the best of the best condoms, and also reviews them. They’ve been featured on Huffington Post for tips on safe, awesome sex.

I’m giving away 1 condom sampler pack of your choice! There’s 16 different packs to choose from (!). Each pack contains 12 condoms and some packs have extra goodies, too! And if you’d rather have a lube sampler pack, you can! Each pack has a value of $18.99. That’s nearly $20 worth of free condom-y goodness.

You could win the “Sexy Superhero Hook-Up Survival” Kit!

How To Enter

It’s really easy to enter (that’s what she said). All you need to do is answer this question in the comments: if you could name your own line of condoms, what would you name them? My favorite answer wins! Be creative.

So don’t be shy! To enter, you don’t even have to use your real name (though if you win, I’ll need your info.) You could win FREE STUFF! FREE IS GOOD. Note: this contest is WORLDWIDE! Anyone — ANYONE — can enter! And as many times as you like.

UrbanNATURES Jewelry Giveaway!

UrbanNATURES jewelry by Almie Rose

UrbanNATURES jewelry wants you guys to have a City Scape necklace and bracelet, like the ones above! Here I am showing them off SUPER SEDUCTIVELY:


UrbanNATURES is a charitable fashion jewelry brand that donates 15% of its proceeds to a non-profit organization. This necklace and bracelet depicts a city skyline, so in order to enter to win, I want you to write one line about your favorite city. You can tell me what your favorite thing about your city is, or what your favorite city is and why. For example, my favorite thing about LA is that magical hour at 4 AM when there’s no traffic on the 405 freeway.

Want your very own necklace and bracelet? IT’S YOURS! Just:

  • Tell me in one line your favorite thing about a city you love.
  • Like UrbanNATURES on Facebook.

Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway!

Almie Rose in Shabby Apple for Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway

Shabby Apple wants you to feel simply lovely and I want to help so we’re giving away one free dress! My birthday this this Thursday but I want to celebrate by giving YOU guys something. In the photo above I’m wearing the “Boogie Woogie” dress, courtesy of Shabby Apple. It has a Betty Drapertastic retro feel to it. It fits great, though I did have to get it hemmed, which was to be expected. I’m doing this giveaway because I love Shabby Apple’s dresses because of their perfect vintage, early 1960’s feel to them. While not genuine vintage clothing Shabby Apple is an inspired new take on old favorites, from Mad Men gowns to Bardot stripes. And the dress I’m giving away doesn’t have to be this one — you get to choose from a huge selection of Shabby Apple dresses.


Here’s how to enter!

1. Like Shabby Apple on Facebook.

2. Follow Shabby Apple on Instagram.

3. Leave a comment with your first name.

Note: Giveaway is only available in the United States. Sorry!

I’m going to choose a winner at random. The giveaway starts today, 10/21 and will go until Friday, 10/25. If you’re the winner, I’ll have to verify that you liked Shabby Apple on Facebook and followed on Instagram and then you’ll get to choose a dress!

Hpnotiq says Bling It On! Enter to win a year’s worth of getting your nails done. Seriously.

bling it on hpnotiq

Full disclaimer right here, holla. This post is sponsored by Hpnotiq, some very pretty liquor. All thoughts and opinions are mine. Come at me.

Nail art is not something I’m very good at. I love having nice looking nails. A bright color, or a red so dark it’s almost black, or shimmering white — those are glam nails to me. Because most of the time, I am biting them. I want to be like those nail wizards who can paint things on their nails like The Last Supper or Billy Joel’s entire discography. One, I got zebra striped nails. Proof. Here is a photo of me holding a cup of coffee in a hotel room in Vegas. Because why else would I have zebra stripes? I was honoring the fine city of Las Vegas. And you can tell those are my hands because of how stubby and childlike they are.

There’s got to be a way to make money off of having a 10 year-old’s hands. And I don’t mean in a jar. That’s just terrible.

And here’s my confession: I didn’t do those myself. I would put a sad emoticon here, but it’s more powerful if I hang my head in shame. So picture that. Picture me doing that. Got it? Good.

So for those of you who can do nail art on your own, this is your time to get NAILED (I’m sorry, that was terrible. Not as terrible as jarring 10 year-olds hands) because Hpnotiq is giving you a chance to win some dizzying prizes. Or maybe makeup is more your thing. Maybe you could win with your GLAM MAKEUP!


This probably isn’t what they mean though. I would lose.



    • Love glam things? From now until July 28th 2013, Hpnotiq wants you to show them how you GLAM LOUDER to win fab prizes! During each 2-week challenge you can submit photos in different categories to win – including the glammest nails, makeup and overall look. Entries can be pictures you snap yourself or images you find online.
    • Ready to Bling It On!? Here are the glamorous prizes that are up for grabs: One year of manis/pedis worth up to $1,200, a $1,000 gift card to Sephora or Ulta, AND a chance to win the grand prize trip for you and three friends to go shopping with a celebrity in Los Angeles! Even better – the grand prize winner will star in a professional photo shoot for the chance to be in a real Hpnotiq Ad!
    • Want to enter? Hpnotiq’s Glammest Nails Challenge is going on RIGHT NOW – but hurry – the entry period for the glammest nails ends at 11:59:59 a.m. EST on June 30th! For this challenge Hpnotiq wants you to show them the glammest nails, nail art or nail finish that you’ve ever seen or done. Think you can nail it? You can enter as many times as you want! Snap a pic of your own, or find a pic online.  For this round, they’re choosing 4 lucky winners to receive free mani/pedis for a year valued up to $1,200!!!

GO FORTH. And then drink some of this:

FauxReal T-shirt winner!


You guys are awesome. I asked you to tell me where you would wear this hands-over-boobs t-shirt. My favorite answer wins the tee. There were so many favorites. HERE ARE THE HONORABLE MENTIONS:

In the bedroom while having sex just to really fuck with my partner’s head. — Chris O

I would use this T shirt during a long wait in a queue to buy the new iphone 5 this way I would be killing time looking at those who are looking at me, and making friends :) — Annie Avilés

I’d wear it in line to vote. People at the polling place need to lighten up. — Mandy

To my own funeral. :-( — flumpy doobis

I would flash dance in a bank to “I Like To Move it Move it.”, then proceed to the bank teller and request all they moneyyyyyy! ;) – Elizabeth Nicole

When I *casually* bump into the 10th Doctor, ask him for a photo and politely ask him to stand behind me acting as if he’s grabbing my boobs ;) — Lee Lian


But THE WINNER of my very first t-shirt giveaway with FauxReal is…

I’m flying to California in a couple of months. I’m not the best flyer — I used to be fine but now I get anxiety attacks especially with the full-body scanners. I cannot handle those. I refuse to through them though the alternative is not really better: they get a female TSA agent to do a full body pat down. So, please, imagine me, standing there with my arms out, wearing this shirt, as a pair of gloved TSA hands touches me along the bra line…… — Stephanie

Congratulations, Stephanie. You win, because fuck the TSA. Email me with your info to claim your prize!


Thanks to everyone who participated and keep checking in for more giveaways!! I have another one coming up soon.
