Last week we asked you to share some of the wisdom you’ve picked up on this road called life in exchange for a copy of Tania Kindersley and Sarah Vine’s Backwards in High Heels: The Impossible Art of Being Female. You astounded us with your sage words, but we liked leebs‘ comment best:

Win This! The Frisky Cotton Tote Bag

We all want to be good to Mother Earth, but figuring out how to help without rearranging your whole life can be tricky. So here’s our advice for becoming a little more green: Fold up a tote bag, and keep it in your purse at all times. Instead of letting cashiers put your purchases in a paper or plastic bag, take out your handy-dandy tote. No matter what you’re buying, whether it’s a new skirt or your weekly groceries, you don’t need another disposable bag to throw out (or, hopefully, recycle) once you get home. Just don’t forget to put your tote back in your handbag so you’ll always be prepared for your next purchase.


WIN THIS! We’re giving away five cotton tote bags to help you get your green on, but you have to work if you want one. In the comments, tell us your best advice for living more eco-friendly by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 29. We’ll pick our favorite responses and announce the winners on Friday, April 30. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

And The Prize Goes To … The Best Runaway Story

Last week, we asked you to share your experiences with running away. Wow, some of you really provided your families (and us) with some laughs as kids and teens, but the winner of “The Runaways” and Make Up For Ever prize pack is Scrabble for this story that involved strangers, the police, and a car chase:

“When I was about 6, I decided to run away by getting on a different school bus at the end of the day and going to my friend’s house. She lived on an unpaved road, though, and a thunderstorm had washed it out so the road was closed. When the bus stopped at the end of the road, everyone’s parents were there waiting to pick them up; a few parents offered me a ride home but I refused. No way was I going back to… whatever it was that I was mad about.



About half a mile down the road I got tired and sat down on the grass embankment to eat my crackers. It started raining again and I didn’t have a raincoat. A man jogged by and stopped to ask me what I was doing, but I refused to talk to him: I was very into the “don’t talk to strangers” rule. So… he called the police.



About 15 minutes later there were two cop cars pulling up to me. I panicked and started to run. Then “chased” me down (going about 4mph) and asked me if they could call my parents. So they did, and they offered to give me a ride home. But I said no because I wasn’t allowed to take rides from strangers. They laughed their asses off, put my mom on the phone to tell me it was okay to get in the car, and when I got home everyone was joking about my big car chase.”

Win This! Backwards In High Heels

Wouldn’t it be nice if right after you were born, someone handed you a how-to manual telling you everything you’d need to know to get through life? That way you’d understand, from the beginning, that there are many different types of love, failure’s OK, and certain kinds of men should be avoided at all costs. Tania Kindersley and Sarah Vine’s Backwards in High Heels: The Impossible Art of Being Female, a hardback with beautiful doodle-like illustrations, isn’t a self-help book, but it will get you thinking about love, careers, money, sex, and more, and the authors hand down pearls of wisdom for everything from doing your taxes without crying to avoiding late-night chocolate binges like helpful friends. [$15.61, Amazon]


WIN THIS! We’re giving away a copy of Backwards in High Heels, but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us a a piece of wisdom that you learned for yourself by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 22. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner on Friday, April 23. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

Win This! “The Runaways” & Make Up For Ever Prize Pack

You might not have realized this, but “The Runaways” didn’t open in theaters across the nation until today. No worries, though, because the film is as good as the months-long buildup.

And The Prize Goes To … The Best Book Choice

Last week, we asked you to share what book you’d download first if we gave you a Kindle, provided by Bravo. Our list of must-reads has multiplied enormously after reading your responses, but our favorite comment came from MSK:

I would download Pride and Prejudice (it’s a classic so I can download it for free — a working student can take all the help she can get!). It’s been my favorite book since I was old enough to read books that included words bigger then “see,” “Jane,” and “run.” There has never been another character like Elizabeth Bennett nor another fictional couple like Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I have read this book a dozen times (not to mention drooled over Colin Firth in the A&E adaptation like a hundred times), and will continue to read it over and over again. With a Kindle I would no longer need to worry about wearing out the pages!

And The Prize Goes To … The Best Reader Beauty Tip

In exchange for goodies and a gift card to Haute Look, we asked you to share your best beauty secret. While we learned a lot about how to get glowy and zip-free skin, we liked j2thelo‘s advice best:

I keep a container of baking soda in my shower caddy. I combine it with equal parts shampoo and wash my hair and scalp with it once a week. It is a great way to get rid of product build up! I also like to use it to exfoliate my skin. Cheap and fantastic!

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!
