Last week, we asked you to pledge to lead a healthier life and help those in need, in exchange for a plush Nautica “Sleep In For The Cure” bathrobe. And the winner of the prize is bdubs629:
“In 2008 I got diagnosed with Celiac Disease where I have to eat gluten-free. Having this diagnosis take place while I was in high school was difficult, but the extra 20 pounds I gained for my senior year was horrible. Because I was finally absorbing nutrients from my food the weight was gained in about a month and a half. My ex broke up with me because I wasn’t “pretty anymore” and his friends claimed I was too fat for their group.
Now 2 years later I am in college and a totally different person. I pledge to finally start mentally healing my emotional scars! I want to exercise, not to lose weight, but get that connection with my body again! I want to stomp out the negative feelings about my body that other people have imposed on me years ago. I will be sexy! I will be healthy!”

Avon offers one-stop shopping for the woman on the go. The company offers cosmetics, skin care products, clothes, jewelry, and other accessories. For this fall, we’ve fallen in love with Avon’s Zip Up Bag — that deep plum color will add a punch to autumn neutrals. Animal jewelry is all the rage right now, and the $14.99 price of Avon’s Animal Magnetism Ring can’t be beat. The Cabochon Stretch Bracelet is another fun way to add color to your look this season. You can also bring attention to your sexy collarbone and neck with the Mixed Chain Long Necklace, which has a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Finishing off our list of Avon must-haves is the Belted Print Dress, which can also be worn as a tunic and matches the Zip Up Bag well. Find out how you can win the prize pack after the jump.

Fashion’s Night Out is upon us! And now for a very trying question: Would you rather celebrate the event in New York City or Paris? Interestingly, FNO already happened in Paris, and unfortunately it was no big whoop. We were there and trust us, the NYC lineup sounds like Disneyland on crack compared to what went on in gay Paree. To be in la France, you do get the amazing benefit of being in the fashion capital of the world … but you’d probably get the “real” Fashion’s Night Out experience in New York. Which would you opt for if you got to choose? Keep reading »
Between makeup, moisturizer, lip balm and the like, your purse often ends up weighing about 1000 lbs. We’re always looking for products that make it possible to schlep one less thing around. And that’s why we love Votre Vu’s fantastic little Duette — a hand creme and lip balm in one! Duette comes in a scrumptious almond scent that smells so good you want to eat it (trust us, don’t) and is an innovative, easy way to carry less. Now if only we could figure out a way to combine our wallet and our lipsticks into some super-powered purse device.
Oooh, la-la! “Project Runway” alum Christian Siriano sent his latest collection down the runway at New York Fashion Week, and his flowing looks were coupled with his newest footwear designs for Payless Shoes. They’re pretty hot — from the sculpted wooden heels to the red octopus straps — although, some of them do look a bit … familiar. (A previous collection seemed “inspired” by Alexander McQueen’s heels.) What we want to know is what they look like when they end up on the Payless shelves. After the downgrade, will we still love them? Guess we’ll have to wait to find out. [The Cut] Keep reading »
