You could win a Tag Heuer watch by simply showing your style! You can enter and leave a note letting us know which look you chose. Of course you could win one of those watches which looks amazing and is definitely working it since they start at $1,500! I'm looking forward to checking out the entries! If I had to choose, it would be so hard as I could see myself as more of a cross between Downtown Chic and Funky Fashionista!
I can't believe that we are already in Oct - how and where did the year go? I can't even think about the holidays this second so until then, let's continue to pamper ourselves in any way that we can. This week we have a giveaway that should be a lot of fun! PZI Jeans is known as the jean for the confident woman with curves. This denim brand carries the sizes 4 - 16 and has an inseam for 31", 34" 26" and 38". If you're looking to find your perfect denim, this could be it. Make sure that you check out this site and for this giveaway, we are giving away 1 pair of jeans and you will also receive a $50 gift certificate for the Bruno Jamais Restaurant Club which brings the French Riviera to the Upper East Side. This giveaway will run for a week and let us know what is your favorite feature from your favorite pair of jeans. I know that my favorite pair always looks great when I'm wearing them with heels or with cute little sneakers.
Ah hump day is almost over but I wanted to announce the winner of the Mommie Giveaway for Lucky Me Tees! Congratulations Hip Mom. I will reach out to you so that we can send you a super cute shirt! You have one more day to leave your comments on our giveaway that ends tomorrow - for Model Co Cosmetics. These winners will be announced on Friday! I just wanted to run this by everyone as I am working on odds and ends after watching Project Runway and Lipstick Jungle! Finally, for those that love dressing up, there is a party coming up where I think it would be fun to meet other readers from this site, Twitter and more. I will include more details within the next few days but the party will be on Oct 25th. Have a great night and I am on Twitter for about another hour or so!
A few weeks ago, you were introduced to Rachael Sage here on the Kitten Lounge who I feel is a mix of She & Him, Kate Nash and some of my other favorite artists. This summer, Rachael Sage released Chandelier and one of the songs that was released was Vertigo. In the last post, I included the audio but now, we have the video! I love the carnival vibe of this video with it's catchy tune. Not only will you be able to enjoy this video but it's giveaway time! We have 2 AMAZING gift packs of Rachael Sage. From now through next Tues we are looking for your comments that will be linked to this post. Play this video and tell us what you like about this song or when you would listen to this song. To me, this is definitely something that would be perfect for me to listen to while I work in Starbucks. Leave your posts here and I will choose 2 winners next Tues who will receive:
This week the amazing and aromatic people at Mistral have provided four great bath bars that are available for this week's giveaway! (This Sandlewood Hazelenut bar pictured here is actually Mistral's soap of the week and is available at a reduced price. You'll want to sign up for their updates so that you will get emails on what they're up to). I have to say, the first time that I found out about this great brand was while I worked as a manager at Anthropologie. I came across so many scents that it was hard for me to find a favorite! I really love that they include Shea Butter which is always great to provide extra noursihment for your skin.
On Thursday, during our normal beauty segment, you'll find about something that I find to be a lot fun about this brand but until then, this week's giveaway includes four bath bars that four individuals will win. Simply let me know what your favorite scent is when it comes to soap! Include your comments within this post! My favorite scent is Pomegranate (fortunately this is available on Mistral) I look forward to the responses and four winners will be chosen this Fri!
Today we are taking a bit of a breather since the week has been so busy! So instead of mentioning great places to get a drink or a way to make a new one, we want you to relax a bit and have something a little fragrant that you can enjoy in whichever way you decide to spend today! With notes of White Tea and Pink Peppercorn, there are definitely sweet smells to be had with the Hard Candy Fragrance and because of this, it was a natural choice in terms of our weeklong giveaway where 4 lucky winners will get to try this out for their very own!
Congratulations Dorian, Kam, Jennae and Michelle! I will definitely contact you individually but loved hearing about your favorite scents. It's amazing how many we go through and which ones we love no matter what. With that being said, I hope this is one that you will make a fave in your cabinets!
I love it! We have yet another great giveaway this week from our friends at Hard Candy! I've always been a fan of the makeup and I am so glad that they are providing 5 perfumes to be apart of our giveaway! Today, I would love to know what your favorite scent is? Five will be chosen. I have to say that I love Chanel No 5 - it's a great classic that can be worn whenever. A few summers ago, I was all about Burberry's Tender Touch. I wore it everyday and was so sad when I no longer wore this - so it was back to Chanel. Currently, on a special night CK's Euphoria Blossom is a nice floral citrus scent that makes you feel that much cuter! Let me know your fave and we'll see who will win!
When I get my weekly mani's and my bi-weekly pedi's, there is only one place that I run to (I simply refuse to go anywhere else)! Dashing Diva has multiple locations all over New York City and they are definitely my sanctuary when I need a little time out! I love their pink colors, plenty of colors, fun events and so much more. I do enjoy going on Fri's to get my pedicure and manicures with a nice cosmo (I was also a huge fan of their wine pedicure as well) Recently, Kitten Lounge attended Dashing Diva's event which had the cast of Legally Blond the Musical in attendance doing a Bend and Snap competition. The pictures included below are courtesy of Sarah Conley which you can see more of her coverage on Style It! This location which was off of Union Square is my favorite one to go to! It was really cute to see the cast members together and to see the winners of the Bend and Snap competition!
Dashing Diva definitely loves the Kitten Lounge and its readers and is providing 3 Elle of a Pedicures (fit for Ms Elle Woods herself) which we will be giving away on this site on Fri the Fourth of July at noon! Getting a complimentary pedicure at the 3rd Avenue location (149 3rd Ave btwn 15th/16th) is definitely an amazing treat and a great way to enjoy the summer as well. To be one of the three winners, simply tell me your favorite pedicure shade (regardless of brand) as many of us go a little daring on our toes when it's the summer! All entrants must have access to NYC as it is valid here and all entries must be included as comments within this post. With so many shades, you're bound to find a favorite - my favorite "Chelsea in the Buff" or Vanilla -Rama (when it comes to mani's) and anything deep and vixen like when it comes to my pedi's.
I am so excited to share with you guys the Village and it also has a site that's online where you can order their yummie peanut butter. The Peanut Butter Co is known for their sandwiches that have a variety of flavors within their spreads. Peanut Butter is not only something enjoyed by children but by adults alike! Enjoy such sandwiches as the Fluffernutter, Peanut Butter Cup (this has Nutella and their freshly
ground peanut butter), Peanut Butter Club (including
two layers of peanut butter and two layers of jelly between three layers of bread) and more. If you're not interested in having one of their amazing peanut butter sandwiches, you will be able to enjoy salads and much more.
As stated before, there is also a site where you can enjoy a variety of flavors. Recently, I purchased Dark Chocolate Dreams which is a mix of peanut butter and dark chocolate! I was so excited to get this as I wanted to taste this. I have enjoyed this on mini pita breads as a great snack! There is also a peanut butter called Bees Knees which has honey in it. They are definitely creative and at least you can enjoy this nutritious food by ordering online if you're not in the city. With so many options, you're bound to find something tasty.
Peanut Butter & Co is so pleased to let you know more about their amazing brand, that they have provided a variety of jars of their rich and healthy product for 4 winners in our giveaway! Simply answer your favorite way to incorporate peanut butter in a recipe or your favorite peanut butter and jelly sandwich and you could be selected as one of four winners! Begin posting to this post and by Fri at noon on 06.04.08! I look forward to seeing your recipes, ideas and more!
First, I have to say thank you so much to everyone who participated! I love when people leave comments and share something about themselves! If you have always wanted to know what you could do to relax, I would definitely take notes from the people who left their great pieces of advice! But unfortunately, we only can have 2 winners although it was so close, I decided to give away 3 Spongelle Soaps!
Congratulations Jennae who was my favorite, I think it's adorable that she is able to relax while having fun blowing bubbles with her child. Obviously, she's a busy lady between doing graphics, blogging and also dabbling in yet another form of creativity! I checked out her site at Green Your Decor and I think we should all take notes!
Another kudos to Mary Jenkins! I love taking baths too and although I find to get the perfect one, it takes some time - it's so worth it. Check her out at Now Entering Momville - I definitely started reading it when I had a second and gave me some much needed laughs!
And finally, I love keeping it simple so how could I not include Theresa N who does yoga in her garden? Maybe it's because I grew up in the Midwest and sometimes miss those serene moments being out in NYC but it made me feel refreshed just thinking about it!
Congratulations ladies and thank you to everyone who put in comments as well. As a heads up and in honor of Fourth of July we have an amazing giveaway that will include two different items which is going to be fun. One involves a food that is definitely iconic when you think about Americana dining and the other is something that is quickly becoming a typical activity that we enjoy more and more! Both will launch on Mon and winners will be selected on Fourth of July so keep your eyes peeled!
I love giving away something amazing that makes us all feel good and I love getting to know more about all of you at the same time. Tomorrow, two people will be chosen for this giveaway randomly and all responses can be left via the comments within this post! The summer is here and we're all super busy, "How do you stay calm and refreshed as we go from one day to the next?" Let me know what you do and you could win! Maybe you shop certain places, do yoga, make something special - whatever it is it's something you enjoy!
Spongelle is an amazing scrubber that keeps your skin looking fresh, soft and it's like having a spa when you don't have the change to get one. In addition these soaps last for awhile! You can enjoy over 20 washes. I absolutely love the way they soap up when you use them and they smell really good as well. Tell me and the rest of the Kitten Lounge readers what you do and 2 of you can enjoy this. Extra bonus points go to those with Flip Cameras that would like to provide a "day in the life" of how they relax; however, keep it clean haha. I'll contact those entries that won. If you don't win this time, stay tuned as we have so many goodies from a number of sites that you will be super excited to know more about and to get!

This month we are giving away 5 Spongelles each Friday. Now for those of you that are not familiar with this fab spa product, let me tell you how amazing this feels with each use. These super cute sponges that come in a variety of shapes and colors have soap that is activated when water touches it. Spongelle can be used for a number of showers (ranging from 15+ to 30+). I love that it replenishes your skin while also having an exfolliant in it that makes sure your skin looks its healthiest!
