Last week, we asked you to share your football-watching traditions. And I just have to say you all had me seriously jealous I don’t have one of my own. Seriously, just the thought of chili, nachos, and cozying up with friends and family has me wanting to find a group of football fans with room for one more. OK, enough about me. I’m sure you want to know who won the My Coke Rewards Tailgating Prize Pack. The winner is maroon, whose name makes total sense now, for this tradition:
“Fall weekends are like religious events for our household. My husband and I are die-hard Virginia Tech Hokies fans and we’re season ticket holders. Every weekend we wake up on Saturday already wearing some form of maroon or orange to support the team- yes, I jump at the chance to buy anything cute and sexy and maroon. We tailgate EVERY weekend, home or away. Home games start in the parking lot at 7am with the tent and solar satellite setup, while I cook the guys breakfast and make Irish coffee. When the team is away, we make our tailgate breakfast at home indoors, complete with VT-shaped pancakes, Irish coffee, mimosas, and delicious bacon. Mmmm, bacon. We have ESPN gameday coverage on in the kitchen and the family room until game time, and then it’s a frenzy of texts, phone calls, etc between family and friends who are all watching the game on TV either in the next town over or from across the country. There’s a good reason why we’re called the Hokie Nation.”

Linea Pelle is known for creating luxury leather and suede belts, handbags, and other accessories the celebrities and fashion insiders love. The Alex Suede Vintage Fringe Mini purse caused quite a stir because the boho-chic remains a coveted look. However, that much fringe can be difficult to carry off for some women. That’s why we like the Linea Pelle Suede Fringe Keychain. It gives a small dose of bohemian style without turning the wearer into a modern-day hippie (not that there’s anything wrong with that). This keychain will add some glam-chic to your keys and help you find them in that cavernous bag of yours. What’s even better? This is an exclusive keychain that wasn’t sold in stores or online.
WIN THIS! We’re giving away one Linea Pelle Suede Fringe Keychain and pouch, but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us about receiving your first set of keys by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14, 2010. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, Oct. 15. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. (Read the official rules here.) Good luck!

I haven’t been everywhere, but I think it’s safe to say after all the bizarre weather patterns last week that it is finally fall now! It’s also that wonderful month when drug stores turn into creepy candy cornucopias and the movie theater is flooded with horror movies. This week, there’s actually a bunch of exciting movies coming out! In honor of what would be John Lennon‘s 70th birthday, his biopic, “Nowhere Boy,” is in theaters. There is also the “talk to your friends about the fact that you made them godparents” fable, “Life as We Know It.” We find love in a psych ward in “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.” And then there’s a prison movie (“Stone”), a horse movie (“Secretariat”), and two horror movies (“I Spit on Your Grave” and “My Soul to Take”). Now go to the movies! Bring some candy corn. God knows there isn’t enough corn in your diet. Brought to you by the American Corn Growers Association. Not really though. Keep reading »
Attention all artists, art school dropouts, or people who have time on their hands and know how to use a pencil and the internet: Rag & Bone (one of our favorite collections) is holding a mural contest. The NYC-based line recently moved into a new space in lower Manhattan, and they’ve got a spare outside wall they need designed. If you think you’ve got what it takes (and want literally tons of people to see your work when they pass by the shop everyday), submit your design to Rag & Bone. Five finalists will be put up for public vote on the Rag & Bone Facebook page, and the winner will get to execute his or her idea (paints will be provided). Start sketching! [Facebook] Keep reading »
