Free Stuff

Dear fellow Fashion Serfs of the world, I wanted to alert you about the abundance of free stuff up for grabs during this holiday season.

There are SO many competitions/contests/giveaways out there on the interwebs at the moment. I shamelessly admit that I literally created a pinterest just to get myself in the running for a bunch of different prizes. We peasants gotta clothe our bods somehow, dontcha think?

Here’s a roundup of four ongoing contests and such, but act fast! They end soon. Or maybe don’t act fast at all so there are more chances for me to weeeeeeeen! Just kidding. But really, there are so many more out there, you just gotta sleuth around for the goods.

– Win £1000 to Spend at from Matches and Motilo (Pinterest) My entry is here.

– Pin it to Win it with Saks Fifth Avenue (Pinterest) My entry is here.

– Mix Well with Madewell (Pinterest) My entry here.

1,000th Post GIVEAWAY

I’ve reached a huge Tumblr milestone: 1,000 posts!

To celebrate I’m sponsoring TTYLUSA’s first ever giveaway. The prize for first place is an incredible piece from Mawi London’s Gypsy Rani line from the brand’s AW06 collection, valued at over $500.

The second place winner will receive a treasure trove of four vintage accessories delivered in keepsake boxes of my own design, seen below.

How do I enter, you may be asking? It’s SO easy! Just follow these three simple steps:

1. Follow TTYLUSA on Tumblr
2. Follow TTYLUSA on Bloglovin’
3. Then leave a comment with your email address at the very bottom of this post!

Two winners will then be picked at random at midnight (CST) Monday, November 26th.

NOTE: This giveaway is now CLOSED. Congratulations to the winners, Lacey of My Boring Closet (1st prize) and Rachael H. (2nd prize)! If you weren’t so lucky this time, fear not! More giveaways await 🙂

In the meantime, entertain yourselves with some gems from my tumblr archives spanning the last three years of my life.

Some people dismiss tumblr as a mindless forum hosting a hodge podge of pretty pictures and miscellaneous links. For me, Tumblr has served as an ever-faithful journal of what piques my interest at any certain moment in time. It’s actually been surprisingly fun to sift through the photos, videos, links, and quotes I’ve posted over the years. And it’s been especially delightful to realize how much I’ve changed in that short amount of time.

There are so many blogs having giveaways right now, just in time for the holidays! Check out Fashion Ocean for one too, but don’t forget to enter the TTYLUSA GIVEAWAY!
