A Very Ridiculous Giveaway.

Hey there! As a thank you to our awesome readers we decided to do a fun beauty samples giveaway...and then promptly forgot to do it. This is to your benefit because the stash of giveaway stuff has grown during our time of slackness. So, now we have a Birchbox overflowing with awesome samples that we're giving away to one of you. I know it sounds a little eye-rolling, like THANKS FOR GIVING ME YOUR FREE CRAP, LADIES, but wait! There's some good stuff in this box, stuff we'd not mind keeping for ourselves.

You guys have been great about putting up with our nonsense and we almost never get shitty comments which is very appreciated. It's basically a bribe. Check it out:



Oooh, there could be anything in there! I will give you some highlights:



And! So much more stuff that I will just let you wonder about. Why, there could be anything in there! Maybe a pony! (There isn't a pony.)

GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED! The winner will be announced on Wednesday December 19th.

  1. I just recently found your blog and I am enjoying it very much. And, hey, I sure could use a Birchbox full of great samples!

  2. There are so many things I love about this blog, but in all honestly, the snark makes me giggle. And I need to giggle.

    Also, you make me buy stuff that ends up looking good on me. So there's also that.

  3. I think out of all the style/fashion/whatever blogs I read yours is my favourite because it's the most fun to read. Plus you mock the Shobbit. It's also nice to see "normal people" clothes on a fashion blog.

  4. Can someone tell me what "Make Up For Ever High Definition powder" is actually used for? I don't really understand where I'm supposed to put it.

    You guys give fashion help that actually works on normal people. That is what I love about this blog.

    1. It's just fancy face powder for setting your makeup!

  5. Snark is an art form with you guys. Love it. Love you!

  6. I always get good ideas from you guys on new ways I can put together outfits from stuff I already have in my closet. And of course your relentless mocking of the Shobbit.

  7. What I don't like about your blog?!? Blasphemy! What do I love about it? The snark, the beauty reviews, the outfits, shopping your closets. Just the other day I had to pull up your blog in the middle of CVS to find the name of a lipstick that Marianne had recommended. One again LGFTB saved the day!

  8. This is one of my favorite blogs - love the practical fashion advice!

  9. I LOVE the snark. It's also really refreshing to see real people, with real and accessible wardrobes with a fashion blog. Not to mention, you are hilarious.

  10. I love the product recommendations and the purses!

  11. I love your sense of humor and you do great reviews of beauty products and always look so stylish and real. I'm not a huge fan of your blogs about SHobbit, but just being totally honest. Love you guys!

  12. I love this blog and all of your nonsense (which is always good, of course). I especially like it when your nonsense involves hot redheads.

  13. This is a sweeet giveaway, and I'm assuming it's international but ignore me if I'm wrong.

    Anyway I like that your blog isn't full of the typical 'la-dee-dah I'm a happy blogger girl all the time and I'm so sweet' airs & graces. If you get what I'm saying.

  14. I like your blog because of the pictures you post of yourselves in what you are actually wearing. You re-wear pieces in different ways, you try different things. For the first time, I have started to believe that decent fashion is do-able without being a NYC model. Real people, real sartorial choices.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't want to win (let it go to someone with less stupidly-sensitive skin) but I DO want to say that you bitches be my idols and THAT is why I keep popping in. You're beautiful, fashionable, brilliant, and so fucking snarky. I wish I were, too.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love that you seem to be 2 normal gals with style I can totally relate too. I love (and I've said this before) that you combine high-quality more costly items with Target value finds. I love that you use profanity, and I love the occasional photos of super hot dudes.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like the style posts. Always great outfits that give me ideas and good suggestions for affordable finds.

    But I LOVE the ridiculous conversation posts. They are why I consistently check LGFTB before other blogs.

  20. I love the blog because you both seem down to earth and funny. I just find this blog a refreshing place amongst other fashion blogs. The snark is hysterical and you don't do ridiculous poses. :)

  21. I don't always read fashion blogs, but when I do, I read Looks Good From the Back. Ha, I've just secured my place your naughty list for that one! But seriously, I want to win the prize.

    I'm not getting it, am I. Damn.

    Hopefully yours, gkcovert at verizon.net

  22. Agreed with all above. So many style blogs are either boring or ridiculous. That you two manage to be neither seems like a small miracle.

  24. This 43-year-old mom of a 5-year-old needs all the help she can get.
    You know I love this blog, and Adrienne and Marianne's hairs collectively mystify me.
    The outfits are cute too.

  25. I actually really like how simple your blog is. Not complicated or assuming. Thanks for the daily style fix.

  26. I love the humor and the outfits that you actually wear. I would love it if you included some 'wear around the house' outfits since I look like I was abducted by Homeless Amish people when I'm at home.

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love that the things you wear/highlight are often things I might actually consider buying (unlike, say, Kim France, both because I'm a grad student and unlikely to spend $200 on a shirt and because it's all waaaaay too unstructured for me, even though I love her blog) and because your sense of style is worth emulating, and not insane. I hope that doesn't sound condescending or anything, but yeah. I like you because you're real. So thanks.

  30. I love your blog because you two are hilarious. Separately and especially together. And you somehow manage to write a blog where I feel like I'm just talking to my friend about my day and my outfit rather than being talked down to like a lot of other blogs!

  34. I love the posts snarking on the sartorialist and Daniel Craig posts it goes without saying (except that long hair picture, which nearly made me weep, and not in the good way). I love both of your style as well but a funny blog is a good blog and yours is a great one!
