And The Prize Goes To … The Best Reader Fashion Tip

Last week, we asked you to share your style advice in exchange for an Anna Beck Designs Kecil necklace. Everyone can benefit from a little help in the fashion department, and you guys wrote up some awesome tips that’ll help us get dressed in the morning, but bellarose‘s comment was our favorite:

Don’t wear anything you wouldn’t want to be caught in an accident or disaster wearing. You never know what could happen during your day. Always look and feel your best! Your apartment could catch on fire and the only clothes you would be left with would be the ones you are wearing — hope you’re looking cute and comfy!

Win This! Sweet Lemon Products From The Body Shop

The Body Shop has long backed good causes — remember last year’s safe sex lip balm? — and this month the company launched a new campaign in an effort to raise awareness about the sex trafficking of children and young people. Through its LemonAid effort, The Body Shop will donate $15,000 to organizations working to stop sex trafficking, and we can’t think of a better cause.

The LemonAid campaign coincides with the debut of The Body Shop’s new Sweet Lemon line. Made with lemon seed oil from fruit handpicked on the Italian Riviera (how glamorous!), these bath and body products should keep you and your skin refreshed with lots of anti-oxidants, vitamin C, and a fresh citrus scent.


WIN THIS! We’re giving away a set of Sweet Lemon products from The Body Shop, but you have to work if you want it.

UPDATE: The winner is bexbales for this comment:

I keep two spoons in the freezer. While I am waiting for my coffee to brew in the morning I press the cold spoons to my eyes. Literally no matter how sleep deprived I am, the cool sensation wakes me right up and any trace of puffiness or dark circles disappears. I always end up looking fully energized!

And The Prize Goes To … The Best Way To Relax After A Long Day

How do you wind down after a rough day? We asked for your best tip for relaxing in exchange for a set of Calgon bath products, and we, like you, enjoy baths, soothing music, and a glass (or two) of wine. But SEMI-girl‘s comment stole the show since her relaxation strategy is twofold:

“My relaxing evenings usually take one of two forms depending on whether my boyfriend is home.  If I have the place to myself: bra comes off, sweats go on, plant myself in the center of the couch and moisturize/balm/cocoa butter every piece of exposed skin while either watching a movie I’ve seen a dozen times already or something wholesome and soothing like a PBS documentary.  If my boyfriend is home: he makes dinner, I replace the usual domestic beer with a vodka martini, nookie.”

And The Prize Goes To … The Most Rewarding Trivia Experience

Last we asked you to tell us your most rewarding trivia experience in exchange for a Smithsonian Channel swag bag. And boy, do a lot of you spend your time drinking and answering trivia. But, Bitsy Ravenclaw won the prize for this story because even we had to consult the dictionary after reading the story …

“A bunch of friends and I were playing Cranium one night just for the hell of it and one of our trivia questions was ‘What is the difference between inflammable and flammable?’ When the rest of the team geared up to say that they meant different things, my friend Craig and I shrieked ‘Wait!’ and without looking at each other we quoted Dr. Nick: ‘Inflammable means flammable? What a crazy country!’  It took another minute or so to convince everyone that despite the quote’s Simpsons origin, we were indeed correct. It was, we won, Simpsons humor FTW!”

Win This! Smithsonian Channel Swag Bag

We might love celebrity gossip and trashy reality TV, but we’re science, art, and history buffs, too. Some weekends, we even watch documentaries to enrich our knowledge and trivia reserves instead of putting on “Real Housewives” marathons. So if you’re anything like us, then you’re sure to enjoy quality programming from the Smithsonian Channel, including “Stories from the Vaults,” which lets viewers inside the museum’s private labs and get a glimpse of rarely-seen artifacts, and “Vampire Princess,” which examines the Count Dracula legend and offers another theory about a woman who may be the mother of all vampires that’s supported by scientific evidence. [$31.48, "Stories from the Vault"; $11.24, "Vampire Princess"]

Win This! We’re giving away a swag bag from the Smithsonian Channel that includes DVDs of “Stories from the Vaults” and “Vampire Princess,” a duffel bag, and a T-shirt, but you have to work if you want it! Leave a comment before 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 11, telling us about your most rewarding trivia experience. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner on Friday, March 12. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
