12 Days of Giveaways on Makeup and Beauty Blog

A different Makeup and Beauty Blog giveaway every day for 12 days, sponsored by Neutrogena

I have been lusting after and dreaming about this bag for more than a year, I kid you not.

First time I ever saw it in person, a lightning bolt of love struck me right in the heart.

BOOM!

boomI remember it like it was yesterday…

I was in San Francisco waiting to meet a friend for brunch in front of a restaurant in the Marina on a sunny day. As she walked up, my eyes locked like lasers on her purse — the Louis Vuitton Salina PM.

Like the accessories weirdo I am, I kept sneaking peeks at it through the meal. Every time my friend looked away, I’d study her purse. It was almost impossible not to!

I totally ignored my eggs and banana pancakes (two of my favorite things in the world). All I could think was, “Oh, mah gawd, Becky! I need that purse!!”

Uh…then I found out that it’s $1,560, which is A LOT of cat treats. Consequently, the bag continues to elude me. Plus, Tabs has an exclusivity contract with LV that gives him exclusive rights to carry/wear the brand here in the offices of Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC.

Oh, well. Don’t ask me how he secured that gig. He never tells me anything. :)

But then Neutrogena offered to host this giveaway, and of course I jumped at the chance. A bag like this? YES! Maybe I won’t be able to tote the Salina PM around my town, but perhaps you will around yours.

This is by far the largest single prize in Makeup and Beauty Blog history — a $1,560 value — and I’m pretty jazzed. The winner of this bag will be a very, very lucky gal (or guy!).

The Louis Vuitton Salina PM Bag

“Elegant and compact, the Salina PM is a bag that’s charmingly feminine. Its finely worked long flat handles and supple Damier Azur canvas make it a delight to carry on the shoulder.”

  1. rachel says:

    Such a great giveaway, I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

  2. Allison says:

    Are you a crazy cat lady? Nope, crazy dog lady here.

    Describe your current favorite purse. My Kate Spade wristlet I got for Xmas (thanks Mom!). Its navy with white polka dots and too adorable!

    Do you have any New Year’s Eve traditions? Our anniversary is the week after, so we usually watch a movie and then have a champagne toast in our jammies.

    Umbrella or raincoat? Raincoat. I love hoods. Wearing some hooded Star Wars footie jammies right now! (thanks to my sister – Xmas present)

    Do you prefer to exercise by yourself or with other people? Myself or the dog

    How far is your commute to work/school? 1 hr each way (about 45 miles, but oh the traffic!)

  3. Anahita balsara says:

    What an amazing giveaway!! I’d love to win. My new Chanel spring goodies would look even better toted around in a LV.

  4. Agata says:

    OMG, this is so exciting! This handbag is stunning! I’d be so ecstatic if I won it!

    I like to exercise with other people, it’s much more motivating and fun!

  5. Taylor says:

    I’m not a crazy cat lady; however, I do have a pet rat. His name is Fritz and he’s pretty much the cutest little white rodent imaginable. I would imagine that owning cats wouldn’t make Fritz very happy – oh, not to mention the hives, sneezing and general misery that I would face due to a slight allergy! One pet rat and one child-like man is enough for me! :]

  6. Anni says:

    No U.S. resident unfortunately. That is ONE lucky winner, the bag looks fantastic.

    I wanted to partake anyways, because, yes, I’m that crazy cat lady. One of the main reasons I hang around your blog so much ;) My cat unfortunately had to be put to sleep last year and I miss him very much ever since. Especially now with my thesis due in six days time, looming over my head, it would be so relaxing and soothing to have him hang around. Ahh well..

    Congrats to whoever wins the bag, it’s soo pretty! <3

  7. grlnxdor says:

    You say “Louis Vuitton”? I say Yes, Please!!”

  8. GinaTheresa says:

    I love your questions! I prefer to exercise alone – don’t understand the appeal of gyms and aerobic classes. How do you really rock out when there are a group of people watching?

  9. Deanna says:

    My friends say that I’m becoming a “crazy dog lady,” because I always want to rescue dogs that aren’t wanted. I currently have 2 large dogs, and we rescued one of them from a shelter 5 years ago. He was abused by his former owner, but he has adjusted very well and loves me a lot. It breaks my heart to see dogs that were abused or just no longer wanted! I want to take them all home with me!

  10. Yes, I am totally a crazy cat lady. I have three cats, two of them are energetic kittens who are very busy boys!

  11. Margaret says:

    Definitely a crazy cat lady!

  12. LolaAM says:

    Umbrella for me! Haven’t worn a raincoat since I was a little girl. It was pink with purple hearts. ☺️

  13. Michele says:

    Karen is my favourite cat lady! :)

  14. Rosa says:

    Beautiful!

  15. Cristen says:

    I am totally becoming a crazy cat lady! I have three and the time and money I spend with/on them is a little crazy sometimes but they are worth it! My current favorite handbag is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Turnlock Python Shine Messenger. I have it in grey so it’s the perfect neutral that goes with everything and it holds a ton of stuff! I’m starting to see some wear and tear on it though so I wouldn’t mind a new handbag!

  16. Katie R says:

    Umbrella! I always carry one around with me…this reminds me of a funny picture I’ve seen: How to tell if a handbag is expensive. On one side of the picture there’s a girl caught in the rain without an umbrella and she’s using her purse for cover. On the other side is a girl in the rain hunched over her handbag sheltering it from the rain with her body. I lol’ed so hard!

  17. Ivy says:

    omg! It’s cute!

  18. Aida says:

    I’d have to say I am a crazy animals lady lol. I love them all! We have two cats, but I we want a puppy soon, a chocolate lab baby :). I can’t wait!

  19. Amy stonger says:

    I hate umbrellas. I feel like they are more trouble than they are worth so I stick with my raincoat.

  20. Ellen says:

    Holy. Crap. Awesome giveaway!

    Umbrella, but only because I don’t have a cute raincoat.

  21. Jessica says:

    I walk to work so when it rains, I use a hoodie. I like being hands free!

  22. Natty says:

    Hmmmmm. I would have to say I am a crazy cat and dog lady! I’m nuts about my min pin as you are about Tabs and I just recently (like within the week) found a kitten (she found me actually lol) which I am nuts about too!

    Love your blog!

  23. Lauren Sutherland says:

    I’ve been using a teeny tiny cross body bag.

  24. Michelle says:

    NYE Tradition? Staying home, copied up. Watch movies, eat pizza, play games. I used to watch Times Square, but not in the last couple of years. Largely I have watched whatever death defying stunt they air. Happy New Year!

  25. Cheryl says:

    Hey girl! You’re the awesomest blogger, you know that?! I wish you had a good Christmas celeb with your families and cheers to the coming new year. I hope the new year brings you much more love, makeup, & maybe a new addition to your family. My mom always tells me to wear polka dots or stripes on New Year’s Eve since they symbolize money. Hehe.

    Take care, Karen!

  26. Portia says:

    Crazy dog lady currently, my Boston Terrier is absolutely rotten!!

    The bag is beautiful!

  27. meredith says:

    I prefer to run by myself but practice yoga in a class.

  28. Erykah P says:

    Thanks for the giveaway i’ve been wanting a Louis Vuitton purse for a while now :-) my current fav purse is my steve madden baffy tote

  29. sienna says:

    oh boy, am i crazy cat lady! i keep talking about getting another cat to keep ours company, but really, i just want another cat!

  30. Brittany says:

    Crazy cat lady for life.

    I have a 15 year old tuxedo cat. We ended up fostering 3 kittens this summer…and keeping them. Beast, Murphy, Duffy, and Angus :)

  31. Lisa says:

    That bag is so, so cute. Argh! Can’t take my eyes off it! lol

  32. Andrea says:

    I’m a crazy dog lady too. I have 4. But I wouldn’t trade them for anything!

  33. Cheryl says:

    I love bags that double as a great purse and as a work bag that can my essentials. Looks exciting!

  34. Diana says:

    Love your blog, visit pretty much every day. Love your products review. Thank you.

  35. Sharee says:

    omg…i would probably die if i won this!

  36. Crystal F says:

    Current favorite purse? Well, I’ve only been able to use one, as it is my workhorse- my Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag. It’s been worn well for the past two or three years but at least it kind of looks like a real purse.

  37. Tiffanie says:

    What a beautiful handbag! Thanks for the awesome giveaway opportunity, Karen!

  38. Candace R. says:

    I LOVE handbags! But what girl doesn’t? Oh my gosh to win this bag would be AH-mazing!

  39. Andrea says:

    My current favorite purse is the Michael Kors Signature Tote. It’s the dark brown color and I love everything about it. The side pockets hold my keys and lip balms. There’s a divider to help keep my stuff organized. I just simply love it. But this purse looks lovely! I’ve never had one this color.

  40. Angela says:

    I wish I liked raincoats. Umbrellas, ftw!

  41. Brian aka Roulette says:

    Cat lady, no…Doofy dog guy? YES! Wow Kare-bear you hit the jackpot with this one. Good luck to everyone! I wish I was smart enough to figure out twitter to enter that way too. Hahaha…

  42. Cai says:

    I looove hello kitty! I guess that makes me a cat person!

  43. Gina says:

    My current favorite purse is a Chanel-esque black quilted little evening bag with a gold chain strap that I got on sale at Aldo, I wear it even when I’m just running to the grocery store :)

  44. Janice says:

    This purse looks fabulous!

  45. Lillie says:

    That bag is absolutely gorgeous Karen!

  46. Cindi says:

    I adore all animals, dogs being my favorite pet…
    Thanks, Cindi

  47. Joanna says:

    I usually like to exercise alone. I become self-conscious if I’m around too many people. Yikes! :)

  48. KPrice says:

    What a great bag! Thanks for a chance at a giveaway.

  49. Marisa Wagner says:

    Hey Karen,
    Ok rain coat or umbrella?
    Both! I love wearing my leopard print raincoat and rain boots with my pink umbrella that reads, “until this I was having a great hair day!’”
    Crazy cat lady?
    Definetly crazy dog lady my pomeranian Pretty Paw gets dressed in her little outfits everyday and I am her personal asstaint so I push her in a pink stroller. My husband ( also part of her “pawonterauge”) gets to carry her bag when she goes shopping!

  50. C says:

    Everyday I look forward to reading your blog! Happy 2014!

  51. Becky G says:

    Gasp! I can see my cat climbing into it for a nap when I’m not looking already.

  52. Kelsey says:

    What an amazing bag!! I’m definitely not a cat lady… My fiancé and I are trying to adopt a puppy soon!

  53. Leticia M. says:

    Sleep deprived here but wow great giveaway

  54. Kelsey says:

    When I go to the gym it pretty much has to be with someone otherwise I don’t feel motivated enough to go on my own. My mom has been super helpful and a great gym partner :)

  55. JudiC says:

    Yes I am a crazy cat lady…at least the crazy cat I live with seems to think so. Our family tradition for New Year’s Eve is to go to a local family-owned Italian restaurant here in Little Rock, called Ciao’s, for dinner. It is a wonderful place!

  56. Anna says:

    BOTH umbrella and raincoat :)

  57. Marty says:

    What a totally gorgeous bag…but definitely you should have one if you’re giving one away, right? It only seems fair :)

  58. Kristen Hartert says:

    That purse is amazing! I adore Louis Vuitton bags and have always wanted one! :) and yes I am very much so a crazy cat lady! I love my Sterling!

  59. Molly says:

    I’m a crazy dog lady. I show photos of my mini schnauzer to strangers on a regular basis. Would LOVE to get that purse!!!

  60. gaby says:

    My purse is all run down and I have been meaning to buy a new one but I’m saving up for college so I cannot always treat myself to awesome bags. I hope I win

  61. jessica says:

    That bag is beautiful!

  62. Priscilla says:

    Love the bag! I prefer hunter rain boots and an umbrella :).

  63. Jennifer says:

    My favorite purse right now is my hunter green Burberry. I bought it while I was in Italy and it reminds me of my italian adventures all the time.

  64. Jennie Hawes says:

    Amazing giveaway!

  65. Bethanie says:

    I’m no crazy cat lady, but a crazy dog lady! Great giveaway, I love Louis bags!

  66. Deborah says:

    Wow! My current favorite purse is a cute Kate Spade crossbody. :D

  67. Jeanne good says:

    Such a pretty bag!!

  68. Brittany says:

    I would die to win this…

  69. mandy f says:

    I want to win this bag! I love makeup, my family and friends and of course shopping :)

  70. Debbie says:

    Wow, would love this prize!!

  71. StrayCat says:

    I’m a crazy cat lady and a crazy bag lady! Purses are my FAVORITE accessory! I change my bag everyday to match my outfit. I know…..crazy! But I love bags and I would LOVE to add this LV bag to my collection! Thanks, Karen and Tabs!

  72. tricia says:

    I can totally see you rockin this bag karen. This is such a great giveaway, I can only dream of winning. Such a nice bag.

  73. Lisa M. says:

    Oh wow!

    My current favorite purse is my only purse, a blue-gray canvas Overland bag. It’s old and the zipper to the main pouch doesn’t quite close anymore, but I still love it. It saved my hip when I fell off a motorcycle so I didn’t get road rash and the inevitable scaring that followed. Yay purse!

  74. Marie says:

    i love your blog. :)

  75. Allison says:

    Wow, what a crazy giveaway!

    Hmm… I am crazy about my cat, Frankenstein, but I only have one. Does that make me a crazy cat lady or not? Also, umbrellas are way better than raincoats. It’s like a new fashion accessory!

  76. erin says:

    Yes on the CCL! We have one boy and two girls, which sounds fine until you hear that I foster kittens for the local humane society, so the cat: human ratio ends up around 6:2 sometimes!

  77. Sandy says:

    I have one purse that I use daily, a cross body bag. Never owned anything fancy like this LV bag. Rarely use an umbrella, I prefer a coat with a hood, one less thing to loose.

  78. Shana says:

    I have two orange tabby brothers — and I post pics of them on FB all the time :) So I am totally a crazy cat lady

  79. Joanne says:

    Crazy giveaway!

  80. Jess says:

    I’m a crazy cat lady :)

  81. ReneeP says:

    I am a crazy dog, mostly Pug, lady here. Looooove my pugs. I (we, fiance and son) usually look for restaurants that have dog friendly seating just to take my dogs out with us.

  82. Cheryl F. says:

    My current favorite purse is a Piazza Sorrento.
    Cheryl F. recently posted … The perfect guy

  83. I am the ying to your yang: I am a crazy DOG lady!

  84. Nikki says:

    I am a crazy cat lady. I have two adorable cats that I love!

  85. Maddie says:

    Raincoat! All my umbrellas break.

  86. Deyse Costa says:

    Yes please

  87. Olivia K says:

    I’m sooo a crazy cat lady, every yesr for Halloween I’m a cat, even my phone covers a cat.

  88. Trenea says:

    Naw no crazy cat lady over here. I love dogs though. I was considering gettingy my boyfriend a cat but I don’t know about that.

  89. Jennifer says:

    I’m not the kind of girl who buys tons of purses. I only buy that one gem that strikes me in the gut when I see it and then i wear it until it dies and it’s time for another. My current bcbg metallic sack bag (has been my every day purse for three years) and is on its way out. It’s time for the next punch in the gut kind of bag :) I hope this one comes home to mama! :)

  90. Footnotegirl says:

    Umbrella, hands down… raincoats make me feel all sweaty and gross.

  91. Katie says:

    This is an amazing giveaway! I hope I win!

  92. veronica says:

    I love this purse. I hope I win.

  93. Brenna says:

    Total umbrella person. My fav one has horses all over it.

  94. Sarah says:

    My current favorite purse is a black and chestnut cross body bag that I got in Italy.

  95. Gina says:

    I am a cat lady, but hubby is allergic to cat!

  96. Erika C. says:

    I love to exercise with my mom and with my daughter. Love spending time with them!

  97. CANDACE says:

    I’m not a cat lady, but I do love it when my friend calls me ‘Kitten’ – it just sounds so old Hollywood.

  98. Regan says:

    What Are your favorite New Year’s Eve traditions?

  99. Regan says:

    How do you celebrate your New Years?

  100. Chuck King says:

    I prefer a raincoat over an umbrella because it is hands free.

  101. Beth says:

    My current favorite purse is a small Coach bag that my husband saved up for a year to buy me for our eleventh anniversary. I didn’t even know that he knew that I was coveting that purse. Because we’re military and money is tight, most of my stuff is either clearance from department stores or from Target. That purse means so much to me because of the thought he put into it and what he had to give up to get it for me. :)

  102. Sara says:

    Wow, what a prize! Unfortunately my crazy cat lady tendencies are kept in check by allergies.

  103. Kathryne says:

    I am a Dog Mama! And I’m an absolute bagaholic that’s why I’m entering this giveaway. I salivate, haha!

  104. Nicole says:

    Umbrella gal, only because I’ve never come acrossa cute raincoat

  105. Charan says:

    I am a crazy cat lady. We have 2 boys, grey tabby and black. I refused to leave ireland without them

  106. Leslie says:

    Not a crazy cat lady, but I do love them – I’m just allergic to them! :( But I am a crazy dog lady! I think my puppy Rhys (a corgi!) would love you and Tabs! He’s a lover, not a hater lol.

  107. Elena says:

    My current fave purse is a big tote with skulls all over it that I received for Christmas. My other go-to is my black Marc by Marc Jacobs crossbody I have because it is black, simple and matches everything!

  108. sara says:

    That bag is gorgeous! Hope I win!

  109. Kenesha says:

    My mom is cat lady! I def can see why. Although I’m allergic to cats I would love to get one! ;)

  110. Stephanie says:

    I’m feeling guilty about not going to Zumba at the gym this morning. My entire family has come down with either a nasty cold, pink eye or a really REALLY sore throat that hasn’t gone away yet. (Yet I still feel okay enough to go shopping with my sister later today. Yes, I have my priorities.) ;)

  111. Katrina says:

    I’ve been using my Coach brown/black tote this holiday season. I like it because it’s so versatile – I don’t have to keep changing my purse depending on my shoes, coat, etc. I’ve already been thinking about a new spring/summer purse though and this would be perfect!

  112. Crissy says:

    LV = magnificent!!!!!

  113. Liv says:

    I picked up a really cute bag from Zara recently, which has been wonderful… But I’m sure that a Louis Vuitton would be a worthy competitor! I’m going to rock the boat here and say that I’m a crazy bird lady – yep I think nothing is more adorable than my little pet budgie, Pumpkin. I’m sure Pumpkin and Tabs would get along great, or at least Pumpkin would love Tabs as her favourite thing to do is to make new friends and pass judgement on my makeup… Pink lipstick is her favourite ;)

  114. Victoria says:

    Are you a crazy cat lady? A wannabe cat lady. Someday…
    Describe your current favorite purse. Black saffiano leather + gold hardware>>>>>perfection.
    Do you have any New Year’s Eve traditions? Watch Dick Clark’s NYE special on the telly.
    Umbrella or raincoat? Umbrellas are cute.
    Do you prefer to exercise by yourself or with other people? With other people can be fun, sometimes.
    How far is your commute to work/school? 10-15 min walk to classes, 30 min commute to work because I have to wait for the El. -_-
    Hopefully the odds will be ever in my favor ;)

  115. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I am definately a crazy cat lady.

  116. Anne says:

    Thanks for the informative and funny posts! I’m a makeup novice and I’m learning a lot from your blog. It helps that we have the same skin tone, as it makes it easier to decide on colors based on your swatches. I plan to check out those new MAC brushes tomorrow thanks to your demo (MAC just opened a store in my town! Yey!). I’m a cat lady but pets aren’t allowed in my building :( So I surround myself with cat-related items to compensate. I just received the Gund version of Grumpy Cat as a gift and he’s so cuuute! Get one!

  117. Susan G says:

    Amazing prize! Cat lady all the way (sorry to my doggie, whom I love to death!) It depends on my mood, but I usually like to go to the gym, because they have all kinds of awesome equipment I neither have room for or can afford, and I find it motivating to be around other like minded people, esp. since I usually go at 5:30 AM. Current favorite bag is a black croco print Brahmin Anywhere Convertible satchel. Can use it on your arm or cross body. First Brahmin and I have to say, I am loving this bag! Small touches, like the lining of the bag (which is sueded and sooo soft) and the magnet at the tail end of the zipper that keeps the tail tucked under instead of flapping around make it extra nice!

  118. Deanna says:

    I’m a total crazy cat lady too. My felines name is Rambo and I love him and all of his crazy obsessing over cat treats.

    I commute to school twice a week and it takes about an hour. Luckily, both of my jobs are within a mile of my house, so no worries there!!

  119. Dinah says:

    Omg! This giveaway is crazy! I love your blog! =)

  120. Steff says:

    Crazy dog lady. Would love to be cat lady too, but hubby says no cats. :(

  121. lillian says:

    Can’t wait for the New Year. Fresh start.

  124. Rachel says:

    My favorite purse is probably the orange Tignanello Perfect 10 my mom got my for my bday last year (70% off!!), but I’m currently carrying a Dooney & Bourke nylon pouchette in black that I got from my work celebrating 10 years there. It’s small but fits perfectly under my arm and keeps me from overloading! I just wish it wasn’t black – I love having a pop of color in my bag!

  125. Kelsey C. says:

    My current purse is a coach patchwork tote I got for Christmas of 05. I’m a crazy dog lady with two australian shepherds, which goes with the excersise question of I like to do it alone discounting the pooches.

  126. Sarina says:

    merry christmas! love reading your blog! it makes me happy!

  127. Megan says:

    I was just swooning over a Michael Kors purse but this one definitely takes the cake.

  128. Elizabeth S says:

    I am not a crazy cat lady, but I have a few crazy cat lady friends. So I can appreciate it! :)

  129. Kim says:

    I’m crazy and I love cats and my family calls me the cat lady…
    I can’t wait for the new year for a new me… 2013 not so great. Love to win a giveaway to start it out right!

  130. Mary says:

    I’ve been wanting a new purse for a while and would be ecstatic if I won this awesome Louis Vuitton bag! My current favorite purse is a black leather cross body from Coach I got about 3 years.

    I’m a total crazy bunny lady!

  131. Tabitha P. says:

    i have never owned a bag that cost more than 20 bucks.
    i would be thrilled to own such a nice one.

  132. Awesome giveaway!!!!! I drive almost 100 miles daily to and from work but I love my job and look forward to great things in 2014.

    Happy New Year when it rolls around!!!!

    This bag is beautiful, I’m a sucker for purses! My absolutely favorite bag I own is a Fossil Crossbody bag in a gorgeous teal color, it’s perfection! It fits everything I need, and it’s stylish… it adds just the right amount of pop to any outfit!

  138. Libby says:

    I looove this bag! My current purse is a rose gold Isaac Mizrahi :)

  139. Sejal says:

    I would choose an umbrella over a raincoat any day, probably because I don’t have a raincoat! It’s easy enough to bring along an umbrella for the day in case you’ll need it.

  140. Lyse Davitt says:

    I would be a crazy cat lady but my husband stops me — we have one pup.

  141. Lindsey says:

    After xmas sales are waiting for me! Shopping tommorow

  142. Belladatura says:

  146. Katie says:

    That bag is so gorgeous! Love your blog!

  147. Camille Domingo says:

    whoa. whoa. whoa! i’m not a big fan of LV, but this is pretty awesome! my daily bag for now is my marc jacobs “totally turnlock” satchel. it’s pretty simple and soft. MJ just knows how to capture my heart (or wallet. whichevers). i don’t know what my next acquisition will be, but i have time to figure that out (trying to limit my buying habits…).

    thanks, karen and tabs! and thank you, neutrogena! kick ass!

  148. Kelsey says:

    I am totally a crazy cat lady but the best part is I’ve converted my husband to be a crazy cat guy. We have two cats, one of who looks a lot like Tabs and they really are awesome to have around.

  149. Chelsea says:

    I always love the questions you post – they’re super helpful! I prefer to work out alone… I sweat more than I’d like to admit, and I always feel super self conscious when other people are around and can see how yucky I look during/after my workout. I also feel more comfortable testing out machines I haven’t tried when I don’t have someone watching me.

  150. Lyndsay says:

    This giveaway is 100% insane.

  151. Ashleigh says:

    Are you a crazy cat lady? Allergic, but I am a bonafide crazy dog lady!
    Describe your current favorite purse. I’m currently obsessed with orange purses. Currently sporting a Tyler Rodan print purse in orange/creme/blue.
    Do you have any New Year’s Eve traditions? Typically it’s a party with friends, but this year going to a concert and which has been my family’s tradition.
    Umbrella or raincoat? As someone who resided in the Pacific Northwest for their schooling, I cannot say anything other than raincoat for fear of being called a tourist. ;P

  152. Laura says:

    My current favorite purse is a dark blue patent leather Kate Spade shoulder bag. Super light-weight and adds a little pop of color — also withstands snow and rain!

  153. Barbie says:

    I love working out with people because you can motivate each other and its less boring

  154. Lisa says:

    Currently, I am a crazy dog lady. My favorite purse just ripped, this would be perfect.

  155. Lisa Brown says:

    i am a crazy bird lady :)

  156. grace says:

    i love reading your blog and this is such an awesome prize! i hope to win!

  157. breyerchic04 says:

  158. Cindy says:

  163. Nicole says:

  165. Cheryl Lanner says:

    WOW! Winning one of these beautiful Bags is THE only way that I would EVER be able to have one so Thank you for the chance! :D

  167. Joanna says:

    Great giveaway Karen. Fingers crossed!

  168. Anna says:

    Yes I am a crazy cat lady! I have a sweet little tabby named Lucinda and she is a spoiled princess.

  169. Paula Carney says:

    My New Years Eve tradition is to eat pickled herring for good luck!

  170. Nikki Ngo says:

    Love cats but I’m definitely a yorkie lady. I have a spoiled one named Tobey =).

  171. Clarissa R says:

    I’m Brazilian and in Brazil everyone wears white for New Year’s Eve.

  172. Michelle says:

    Umbrella AND raincoat! Especially when there’s a lot of wind and the rain blows under the umbrella.

    Love your beauty blog, particularly the product reviews and swatches.

  173. Krystle says:

    I would love to win this bag!! :-)

  174. Paige says:

    Hi Karen. I have followed your blog for quite a while, but unfortunately don’t comment very often. You are sure to always provide me with a giggle!! I love your sense of humor.

    I am not much of a cat person because of allergies. Now dogs, THAT’S another story! I have two silver poodles who I would probably trade my husband for if necessary :-) I love animals, and do some work in rescue. I also LOVE LV purses, tee hee!!

    Thanks so much for all of your hard work, and for the give-away! Happy New Year!

  175. Allison C says:

    No, I’m not a crazy cat lady but I love them anyway. Oh, that bag is to die for!

  176. Cynthia F. says:

    Thankfully, I work at home, so it’s only 5 minutes from my bed to the coffee pot to my desk.

  177. Kristine Ayala says:

    We have a party for NYE!

  178. Tina Renee Barker says:

    I’m definitely a crazy cat lady. I couldn’t have children so all my attention & affection goes to my furbabies!

  179. meganlisa says:

    What a beautiful bag! Amazing giveaway!

  180. Susannah says:

    Yes, cats are my favorite. While I only have two of my own, I grew up in a house that rescued stray cats.

  181. Amber says:

    Oh my! This is the cutest bag. The cat’s outta the bag! (Hi Tabs) That bag is supa-fly, my oh my! ;) I’m full of rhymes and puns today, but I’d love to be styling with that bag on my arm. Thanks Karen and Happy New Year!

  182. Definitely not a crazy cat lady…I love my brother’s dog, Molly, though!

  183. aidaliz perez says:

    I don’t have any cats but most people that know me know that I’m a crazy dog lady. I have 3 beautiful children (English bulldogs) named Herbert, Baylee, and Molly. I’m sure they would think their mom would look fabulous carrying around a new LV bag.

  184. Rita Morgan says:

    If I have 3 cats , does it mean I’m a crazy cat lady? Then I am.

  185. Chris says:

    Umbrella, because I can still show off any cute outfits.

  186. Nisha says:

    Im not a crazy cat lady. I love dogs and had bad experiences with cats when I was younger. They are pretty to look at but I dont trust them at all o_o

  187. Crystal says:

    The bag I carry now is very classic looking. It’s black leather with a striped satin lining. It’s very open on the inside and is medium size.

  188. Zharlynne says:

    My family has big New Year parties. Prior to midnight we throw away all our old calendars and put up new ones. We have round fruits like grapes and oranges. We open all the windows and doors and my mom sweeps away things at the doorway and whispers something along the lines of well wishes for the new year after the clock strikes 12.

  189. Kristina says:

    One of my favorite bags has the cat from Cinderella on it! Does that answer if I am a cat lady?? Heehee ;)

  190. Lisa Gonzalez says:

    For new years you are supposed to wear red underwear for good luck, eat 12 Grapes within the last or first minute (can never remember). Oh and we eat a stew called menudo.

  191. Sherice says:

    I need need need to win this purse!! In looooove!

  192. Liz says:

    Gorgeous bag! Your giveaways are always awesome, Karen :)

  193. Rene'e Gaskins says:

    I prefer to exercise by myself. When I’m with a friend or my sweet, sweet daughter side by side on the treadmill, they want to begin a conversation. I just can’nt do it! First off, I’m huffing and puffing, secondly, I’m trying to make sure my feet do what they’re supposed to do and keep me planted on the treads, not on my bum on the floor!

  194. Rhia says:

    I always keep an umbrella in my car. I haven’t worn a rain coat since I was in elementary school. Thanks for keeping the posts awesome and hilarious. Wishing you all the best in 2014!

    Awesome giveaway!! And I’m totally a crazy cat lady. I have 2 and they’re my children :)

  200. Beaulevarde says:

    I would prefer an umbrella, because I keep thinking of the fact that I have to take the raincoat off and what if I have to pull it over my head, then my makeup and hair would mess up.

  201. Christine mercier says:

    I love my midnight blue Dooney & Bourke bag… I prefer something different and unique.
    And if I had the room, I would be a crazy dog rescuer!! For now— just my 10 year old shelter shepherd, Tuff.

  211. Maria says:

    well this is exciting! the first time I bought a LV bag was in Las Vegas and it such a fun memory. thanks for the chance to win!

  212. Justine says:

    I can’t deny that I’m definitely the crazy dog lady! Everything revolves around my 5 furbabies cuz i want the best life for them. When I read your blog, it makes me happy to know that there is someone out there that loves makeup, and loves their pets even more!

  213. Laura says:

    I prefer to work out by myself – I don’t like being all sweaty in front of other people!

    Hmmm we’ll as far as whether or not I am a crazy cat lady I lean more towards dogs but cat’s do indeed have a place in my heart. I had a bad experience when I was little that has unfortunately carried over into my adulthood :( I will say though that I absolutely admire Persian cats. They are soo beautiful.

  227. Are you a crazy cat lady?

    Our New Year’s tradition is to leave town, thus ending the debate of whose family we’ll spend it with. :)

  238. Lacey F says:

    Yep, crazy cat lady reporting in. I have 3 and my hub has to stop me from bringing home every cat I lay eyes on.

  239. Lynn says:

    I’m a crazy cat lady for other people’s cats. The first hour with cats are just fine…then i start getting itchy throats and eyes. I dont get why…i lived with my friend’s cat for a few months and I was good!

    Thank you Karen! I hope you have a wonderful New Years

  240. Melissa says:

    Sadly, I’m allergic to cats, but they are super cute!

    I live right across the street from work, its great! The only bad thing is, if my boss needs something she calls me to come back! (But I do get paid!)

  241. Tiffany says:

    wow karen, this giveaway is epic!

    and i tend to prefer exercising in a group setting….it keeps me accountable!

  242. Chelsea says:

    Are you a crazy cat lady? Yes, and a crazy bunny lady!

    Describe your current favorite purse. A Carlos Santana cross-body bag in a camel color. Perfect for walking!

    Do you have any New Year’s Eve traditions? Nope!

    Umbrella or raincoat? Raincoat, umbrellas don’t work in wind very well.

    Do you prefer to exercise by yourself or with other people? By myself, but classes can be fun.

    How far is your commute to work/school? It was a half mile walk, but with my new job tomorrow it’s only about a 15-25 minute drive, so still not bad.

  243. dannette says:

    I happen to be a very crazy cat (7!) and dog (1!) lady! :)

  244. Heather USA (Rafflecopter: Rosie Areola) says:

    I’m more of a crazy dog lady, but I do feed the stray cats around here lol I’m an animal lover more than a human lover ;)

  245. Robin says:

    Umbrella or raincoat? Neither. I live in So. California so we just make a run for it!

  246. Anjali says:

    I prefer to exercise with others.

  247. Kim says:

    Holy…this giveaway is ridiculous. STUPID, even. Wow!

    I felt the same way about my first pair of a particular faincy shoe – I just could not spend that much cabbage on a pair if shoes. C’mon, man…how good can they fit?
    How. In the world. Could I justify that.
    After a year of lusting and emotional turmoil, I scored the exact pair of booties I’d been oogling from afar at a sample sale.
    Worth every penny. And this bag will be, too when you get your hands on it.

    Plus, you can stick Tabs in it for those short errands and visits to the vet! Bonus!

  248. Gail says:

  277. Evelyn says:

    I’m not a crazy cat lady yet, I’m not home enough to have a cute furry friend. I will however adopt a pet in the future! I keep that cheery thought as I commute almost 2 hours each way to work every day. fun huh? :) Happy New Year folks!

  278. Elaine says:

    I am a crazy cat lady.

  279. PetraElise says:

    Am I a crazy cat lady? Well, technically no, but I could go that way. I used to have three cats (all passed on due to extreme old age, so I had them for a very long, happy life). After 5-6 years with no cats, only dogs, we got a tripod kitten back in June, and he now rules the house. I really love having another kitty around, but for now will just stick with the one.

  280. Nicolle says:

    After being married 10 years my husband and I have spent a lot of New Years together- some out partying and some in with a movie marathon- but this one is special. Our twins were born on November 13th and had to spend time in the NICU. Now they are both home and we couldn’t ask for better dates to kiss at midnight.

  281. Rebecca says:

  286. Britt says:

    Uhhh yes please!!!

  287. Stephanie A. says:

    Whoa…if this bag were mine, I might never carry another! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

    I am an (unwilling) cat lady. I have 2 heathen babies that I was SUCKERED into taking 4 years ago. They drive me bananas, but I couldn’t imagine not having them!

  288. michaela says:

    what a totes amazing giveaway! (pun intended)

  289. Emily Rehse says:

    I am turning into a crazy cat lady. Our 3 year old George (named after the Weasleys for his red hair) is king of the castle! After Christmas we made him a cat condo out of the shipping boxes everything came in. But like every 3 year old boy, (cat or human) the idea of trampling the boxes was just that much more fun. So our 12 pound feline decided to go all Godzilla on his city of condos.

  290. Christine W. says:

    This crazy cat lady would love to win that bag!

  291. Silk Mandel says:

  298. Lissan says:

    My favorite purse right now is a cross body Steve Madden. I live in Seattle so an umbrella is a must :) Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  299. Amber G says:

    This bag is stunning I don’t think I’ll ever be able to afford one for myself though!

    I’m an umbrella and raincoat kind of girl.

    “Are you a crazy cat lady?”

    Yup. So much so that at work, I am known as the “Cat Whisperer.”
    I’m a dogwalker/petsitter…and am known to get even the shiest, most scaredy-cats to come out for chin scritches. :)
    And of course, I have my two furbabies — one cross-eyed Balinese mix and one Munchkin (dwarf cat). They run the house. ;)

  311. Michelle says:

    I am definitely a crazy cat lady. I have been around cats my whole life, and I am now lucky to have two 1.5 year old gray tabbies. My phone is full of pictures of them. I catch myself looking through these pictures on the subway and sometimes at dinner!

  329. Tennyoceres says:

    I’m deathly allergic to cats. :( My friends’ cats seem to know this and instinctively play nice and cuddle with me. Can’t resist the purrs when I pet around the collar. It’s great until the Claritin wears off.

  330. Becky B says:

    Lovely handbag! I’m not a crazy cat lady :( I miss having cats. However, I have a crazy dog and she’s crazy enough for me and her.

  331. Natalie B. says:

    I’d say I’m a crazy pet lady! lol I have Neo (a boxer boy dog), Isabella (a fluffy grey 14 year old cat), Pookie (a black 7 month kitten) & Willy and Lilly (a white w/purple parakeet and purple and blue parakeet). The dog & cats are rescues. So, yes, crazy “pet” lady here! :)

    My current favorite purse is a camo print one from charming Charlie!

  337. kristi says:

    That is a gorgeous purse. I would love to win.
    I like to exercise with others. I find I have more motivation with a friend there pushing me to keep going. If I’m on my own I am more likely to stay home instead. Besides it’s more fun when you have someone to talk to.

  338. Amber says:

    Whaaaat! Karen, this is insane! Can’t wait to hear how many people enter this one!!

  341. Lulubelle says:

    I’m more of a crazy dog lady at this point in my life, but I started off with two cats. They’ve since passed on, one at 19 and the other at 17. I loved having them!

  342. I am a crazy dog lady in training..lol

  343. C.L. says:

    I like the protection of raincoats but they’re not in style, so it’s umbrellas for me. If they are big enough and windproof they are perfect.

  344. Monika says:

    My favorite purse right now is my Longchamp La Pliage bag. It holds everything and acts as a great bag for work and class. It will always be a bag that I replace when my current one gets torn up. Love it!

  345. Christy Peeples DuBois says:

    Ok…… I stated as a prior comment on one of the giveaway days comments that I would hate to have to pick a favorite of the giveaways…… Well, I now can easily do that. This is my favorite.

  346. millie says:

    i don’t think i’ve ever worn a raincoat. i prefer umbrellas. i have cute ones too, love my polka-dotted ruffly one my sister got me from the philippines.

  356. Sandy says:

    Hi Karen! My New Year’s Eve tradition is to stay home with my husband and two kitties and watch the ball drop on Times Square on the TV. If I am feeling really crazy, I might have a sip of champagne at midnight. :)

  357. Salma S says:

    Umbrella, DEFINITELY. I hate raincoats. I mean they’re just sooo … ugly? I dont know, just really bulky and unnecessary in my opinion.

  358. JMCHICAGO says:

    My work commute is 30 miles one way. I know it’s quite far from where I live but I love my job plus I work with amazing people. Couldn’t ask for more.

  359. Maria says:

    I used to wonder at your obsession with Ryan Gosling. Until I started watching Supernatural on Netflix. About a year in I realized I was and am fully obsessed with Jensen Ackles. I hate his last name but woah does he make me swoon and now I get your celeb crush thing. Anyway, happy Sunday!

  360. Diana A. says:

    OOOO! I would luvvv that bag!

  361. Rebecca says:

  362. Rochelle says:

    I’m not a cat lady…def a dog gal, but an animal lover in general, sans snakes.

  363. Kristy says:

    I wish I could be a CCL! I am a cat lover who is allergic to cats! When I worked with animal rescue groups, I would take allergy medicine before going to the shelter to take care of the kitties.

    This is a wonderful giveaway, Karen! I hope you’re having a lovely holiday.

  364. Marta says:

    I like better umbrellas than rain coat. Awesome giveaway!

  365. Mandy says:

    I am completely and absolutely a crazy cat lady! Love my Tuffy to death and would do anything for him!

  372. Erica says:

    I may be a crazy cat lady! I love kittens, they are just so cute!

  373. Aina Yao says:

  374. Sherry says:

    Oh my gosh Karen…can’t believe you’re having a Louis Vuitton giveaway!! How generous and kind you are!! It is such a beautiful bag. I can’t even imagine owning a LV. Anyway, I’m most definitely a crazy cat lady. I spend an unbelievable amount of time doting on my silver tabby Persian, Smokey. I just lubs him soooo much!! By the way, the checkered pattern on the handbag remind me of the checkerboard square on Purina cat food. See…I am crazy. My cat actually has eaten nothing but Fancy Feast wet food, since we got him. He loves his Fancy Feast!! On another note, I do frequently exercise with other people, because I really enjoy aerobics and Zumba as well. I really like the whole class exercise thing…it’s a lot of fun. Well, thank you for being so sweet and have a Happy New Year!!

  375. M.S. says:

  405. Katelyn says:

    Hi, Karen! I hope you, El Hub, and Tabs are having a wonderful holiday season!

  418. Merritt says:

    I’m not a crazy cat lady, I’m totally a crazy dog lady. It seems that every lost or wayward doggy ends up finding a home with us. We’re at 5 now, but we’ve had as many as 6. That’s a lot of dogs in a 3 bedroom ranch!! :P

  419. Thomas Murphy says:

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  420. Alisa Yao says:

    Not a cat lady yet, but slowly turning into one

  421. Melissa says:

    Oh how that bag is making my heart go pitter patter!

  422. FreshEyre says:

    Current favorite purse ? The Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC, but I could be persuaded quite easily to love this beautiful LV – wish me luck !

  423. Lauren says:

    I am more of a crazy dog lady myself, but I do love me some LV. Can has plz?

  424. Vanessa says:

    My commute is 3 miles.

  425. Varsha says:

    Wow,amazing ..thanks Karen and happy new year to you 3!:))

  426. joey says:

    cat lady all the way baby!!

  427. Wanda Stoner says:

    I’m not a crazy cat lady because I am allergic, but I love little dogs. If I could have a bunch of little dogs, then I would.

  428. Alexia Abby says:

    My current FAVORITE purse (one, that I cannot possibly afford) is the LV Damier Ebene Canvas Portobello PM. It’s so elegant and beautiful- I have a serious crush on this bag! =)

  429. susan says:

    I’m a raincoat kind of person.

  430. Anna C says:

    I only have one cat, but I do believe I qualify as a crazy cat lady…my 18 year old cat has his own mug and handcrafted Italian ceramic dishes (no bowls for my precious!), a pillow on my bed, and only the finest kitty cuisine. I know that in his little kitty heart he would want me to win this purse :)

  431. Valerie C. says:

    I like to exercise alone in my old shirt and shorts with no makeup on :)

  432. Cristi says:

    I love all things cats and love the posts that show the latest in adorable cat merchandise you find about town or online! Naturally, I adore all your Tabs posts, too!

  433. Jill says:

    I prefer to work out alone–I run about 50 miles per week and I enjoy the alone time!

  434. Jennifer says:

    Not a crazy cat lady, but I am a totally insane dog lady! Different strokes (ha ha–as in stoking/petting a cat or dog) for different folks. Just wondering, didn’t Tabs originally employ you in San Rafael? How did he feel about the relo to Novato?

  435. Jisu Kim says:

    my commute to school takes about an hour

  436. Lauren says:

    In Portland, Oregon some people can be pretty serious about the “umbrella vs. Raincoat” question. “Real Oregonians don’t need rain gear” they say. And there’s definitely plenty of people who abide by that rule. When the rain starts you see them pull up the hood on their sweatshirt (it’s also an unspoken law that you must own at least one) and run for it. I prefer an umbrella personally (A cute compact one with black and white houndstooth all over.) but the rain coat is a must while riding my bike. I’m just trying to stay dry until the 4 months of blue skies and sunshine that make up for other 8 months of solid gray rain.

  437. Wendy says:

    Love the bag! Happy New Year, Karen!

  438. Gemi says:

    I actually just recently got my first purse ever… and im 17 lol. Purses never appealed to me much before, but now i love them!

  439. Susie says:

    What a beautiful bag! Now that my kids are teens it seems like I can finally have something nice. I remember sitting in the Nordstrom Cafe, feeding my son sweet potatoes. Needless to say, it landed all over my new bag and shoes. And people wonder why I keep my purse in the car and wear washable clothing and plain leather shoes?

  440. Theresa says:

    This is a wonderful and very generous giveaway but did you finally get one for yourself?

  441. Sarah says:

    Love your blog, reviews, and photos!

  442. Marisol n says:

    I like to exercise on my own. By the way, if I win this bag, you can come over and borrow it ;)

  443. Megan says:

    This is an amazing giveaway Karen! I have to say I think I am probably more on the crazy dog lady side. I only have two dogs right now, but I’ve had as many as six at one point time, and I’ve loved them all. Tho if I ever had a cat I could probably switch over pretty easily to team Crazy Cat Lady instead. Both are cute and cuddly and lovable :)

  444. Liz says:

    Suuuuch a beautiful bag, I have been reading your blog for a few years now, but have been too shy to comment-I do always really appreciate your encouraging and up beat attitude. My New Year’s Eve tradition is take-out Chinese food :)

  445. Betty says:

    So excited about this giveaway!!!

  446. Natasha P. says:

    Exercising: Well, I hate doing it period. But I REALLY hate doing it in front of people at all – so I prefer to do it by myself! I’m wayyy too self conscious.

  447. Kathy F says:

    I love cats ( and dogs).

  448. mrsshukra says:

    Always use an umbrella – rain or shine.

  449. Abigail says:

    It’s been a family tradition to eat 12 grapes and make wishes for all 12 when the clock strikes 12.

  450. latanya says:

    I would use both an umbrella and a raincoat

  451. Michelle says:

    I am a cat lady and proud of it :)

  452. Angie says:

    I’m proud to say that I’m a total cat lady. I love my two babies. This is one amazing bag! It would be amazing to win it.

  458. Mary says:

    Wow, can’t pass up a chance at a prize like this. Karen, you’ve asked for reading suggestions before… might I suggest something more substantial than the young adult books you favor? The Brothers Karamazov, Crime and Punishment?

  459. Hannah says:

    Beautiful bag! It would be a dream to win it.\

    Currently, I’m adoring totes made of saffiano leather and I really like the style of MK’s Selma.

  474. Christina says:

    Lol – did she catch you giving it the eye? I’m totally the person who will lean over on the subway and compliment a stranger or ask where they got something. I’m that person. Hopefully Neutrogena will hand one over to you too – you totally deserve it for this past year of wonderful posts – I’m really enjoying your venture back into videos (I’m a reader from the very very beginning!)

  475. Ginnie says:

    Wow! What a great giveaway! I’d love to be a crazy cat lady, but unfortunately my husband is allergic;)

  476. Mary says:

    I am a TOTAL crazy cat lady. We currently have nine. It’s not like we planned it, they just show up and we feel bad and then boom, we have another cat.

  477. Eliza says:

    I’m totally a crazy cat lady. Half the photos I take are of my cats! (I’m not a very good photographer, I’m just enthusiastic.)

  478. Barb says:

    I’m not a cat lady, yet. I’m pretty sure I’ll have about 10 by the time I’m 70 :)

  479. cocochanelno1 says:

    Yep, I am a certified crazy cat lady. We have three, but I would love to live in the country and have more.

    Favorite handbag is currently my Dooney large satchel, in tan leather band black suede. I need a Samsonite!

    I LOVE your blog and swatches, Karen. And I have no idea how you create the Tabs ads, but they are a hoot.

    Happy New Year from Texas!

  482. Mich says:

    I’m such a crazy cat lady, I only have one cat, but she’s like my child and I get really jealous when she goes to other people over me.

  483. Celi says:

    Whooooooa. I could carry my cat in that! ;~}

  484. Jenn says:

    Amazing giveaway! Glad you’re making YT videos!

  485. Vi says:

    Thank you for this great giveaway! I would love to win because it would be my first LV bag!

  486. Katherine R says:

    My current favorite purse is a Coach wristlet. I don’t like to leave a “real” purse in the backroom at work. It is perfect because it fits into a pocket so I don’t have to worry.

  487. Emily says:

    I wish I’d asked myself umbrella or raincoat this morning because DAMN NEW ENGLAND GOT SOME CRAZY RAIN TODAY.

  488. April says:

    I would love to win this! Amazing!

  489. Vidhu says:

    I just love your blog. You’ve enabled my love for makeup for many years without even knowing! Fyi, my wallet hates you.

  490. Jenn says:

    I am a total crazy cat lady- I have four furry friends!

  491. Jenn P says:

    I prefer to work out solo! If I work out with someone I spend more time gabbing than working on my fitness. I can go to the gym with someone but I gotta do my thing, and them do theirs!

  492. Graciela says:

    I prefer to exercise in a class setting because it motivates me to keep going.

    My current purse cost about $20.00. This would be an amazing treat.

  493. Becca C says:

    Absolutely work out with others type of person. I got into Crossfit back in May and love it!

  494. Janet says:

    Wow, what a great giveaway! Hope you have a good New Year’s, Karen! :)

  495. Kelly L says:

    Growing up I always wanted a cat, but my mom is allergic. Now that I’m grown up I have an Italian greyhound, she is the best dog ever and now I can’t imagine life without her. Happy New Year!

  496. Liz says:

    Umbrella! I love the pop of color I can have with this seasonal accessory.

  497. Holly says:

    Awesome giveaway, Karen!

  498. Mandy Sark says:

    I’m definitely a cray cray cat lady. My favorite mug proclaims it. It says, “I decorate with cats.”

  499. anhchi nguyen says:

    I carry a cross-body bag all the time for safety issues.

  500. Yao says:

    Not a cat lady, but I’m getting there. Is it b/c I’m in my 30s now?

  501. Shannon says:

    Watching “Finding Bigfoot” with my kitty by my side and loving’ that handbag!

  502. Lucy Nguyen says:

    Thanks a lot for the giveaways.
    I like Umbrella

  503. Kristin says:

    I would love to own that bag! Right now I am carrying the Michael Kors Hamilton tote which I love, but hey, I’d also love to own this bag =)

  504. Leonie says:

    definitely a crazy cat lady!!!

  505. Michelle says:

    OMG that bag is gorgeous! And I think I prefer umbrellas, haha.

  506. Leonie says:

    crazy cat lady! forever

  507. Jessica says:

    Yep, I’m absolutely a crazy cat lady! Love your blog (and Tabs’s contributions, of course)!

  508. AudreyS says:

    Umbrella or Raincoat? Being an Oregonian, we tend to be quite snooty toward umbrella users. I don’t even own an umbrella and, if I did, I’d use it for shade on a hot day. I particularly dislike that many people who are carrying an umbrella tend to absentmindedly twirl it and the spokes are right at my eye-level, which could be quite perilous.

  509. Melissa says:

    I commute 30 miles one way to work. I live in Los Angeles, so the commute time is what is so stressful…takes me over an hour with traffic. This bag would really brighten that commute!

  510. Temeika says:

    Such a lovely bag. Whoever wins will be a very lucky lady (or man). Welp…I hope everyone is enjoying a happy and healthy holiday season. Best wishes, all.

  511. Brittany Alfonso says:

    Working this NYE! No cats, no dogs, just more sleep. With this bag, might actually have to go for some sunshine

  512. Erin says:

    I’m a swimmer, so have no choice but to go to the Y to workout (swim laps). I would prefer to have the pool to myself but that never happens.

    I am so in love with this bag. :)

    Thanks for hosting!

  513. Mindy says:

    I love the color of this purse.

  514. katie says:

    I would love to be a crazy cat lady unfortunatelly I’m allergic:( no kittens for me!!

  515. Carolyn N. says:

    I’m more of a dog person, but I love furry friends!

  516. Patricia says:

    Raincoat over an umbrella as long as the raincoat has a hood.
    I’m a crazy dog and cat lady.

  517. mkdallas says:

    I love my two fat cats!

  518. Kati says:

    My current purse is and Dooney and Bourke but it is quite warn out. I love it very much but it I am getting sick of the same old same. Cats make me sick, but I have a pet lizard who I love to pieces. <3 Thanks for the giveaway!

  519. amy pugmire says:

    I love a good raincoat and boots. I also work at home. So I don’t go far!!

  520. Jocelyn says:

    What a great giveaway! Oh to win would be a dream come true! I haven’t gotten a new purse in years, and never one as glamorous as this one. I am starting to interview for co-op next semester and this bag would go great with my outfits to make a great impression!

  521. Karen K says:

    I’m a crazy lady but no cats are involved. Umbrella. Florida is too hot for raincoats. I’d burst into flames in the rain. True story. Ooh wee! LV pursie! Best present evah!

  522. Anusha says:

    This is gorgeous..thank you for this opportunity

  523. Amber M says:

    Yes I am a crazy cat lady and I don’t care who knows it!!!

  524. Kristy M says:

    I actually LOVE to exercise by myself. I am always around lots of people at work, and at home my three little minions (children actually, but I prefer to call them my minions!) all keep me very busy. So having some alone tiime all to myself to work out is priceless!

  525. MeMe says:

    I would LOVE to win!!!

  526. Jill says:

    I think I might be a crazy cat lady in the making, lol. I have a big orange kitty that I got from the shelter 3 years ago who is really sweet. I’m currently trying to befriend the 2 stray cats that live on my street, they’re very cute but they’re afraid of people. I probably look like a weirdo talking to a cat that’s hiding in a bush, but oh well :)

  527. Kati says:

    I am allergic to kitties, I am a crazy lizard lady!

  528. Sara says:

    I’ve been taking group barre classes and I love it! Even though sometimes I’m embarrassed about needing to take a break or doing fewer reps, I think that if I were alone working out I would just completely stop whenever I got tired! Working out in a group definitely motivates me.

  529. Shanda Enriquez says:

    I am not a crazy cat lady, But I do have two cats.

  530. Amanda says:

    Definitely a cat lady. My kitty Socks, who has passes on, used to love riding around in strollers. He was a spoiled thing and I miss him every day.

  531. My first reaction to my friend’s LV bag (Neverful) was exactly like yours! But much more obsessive haha! I’m sure she thought I lost it!

  532. sarah james says:

    I don’t mind being labeled the crazy cat lady of the neighborhood. I enjoy helping and loving the fosters i take in until they find their forever homes. When I was battling breast cancer, it was the cats who were at my side more often than a lot of my ‘human friends’. They are very special to me and i can only hope to save as many as i can while I’m here!

  533. Karen says:

    Prefer to excercising alone!!

    Hey I I win maybe we could share the bag ; ) 3 months with you and then 3 months with me and then you and then me and then…

  534. stacey says:

    I’m so excited about this giveaway that I just dumped an entire cup of hot chocolate down my pants. marshmallows and all.

  535. Anastacia says:

    If it wasn’t for my apartments rules I would totally be a crazy cat lady. I only have one little kitty and she is my heart and soul but I would love for her to have a couple friends.

  536. maria lara says:

    What a great giveaway! I hope I win, I have never won anything!

  537. Nell says:

    Yep, I’m a crazy cat lady. I have two of my own but if I win the lotto one of the things I will do is open a cat sanctuary. So many kitties in need.

    Umbrella for sure and exercise alone. No current favorite purse (hate my purses right now!)but this LV is gorgeous! Thanks for the fantastic blog and the chance to win! Happy Holidays! – Nell

  538. Chey says:

    My current purse is a Betsey Johnson and I love it! It’s so cute but edgy and girly at the same time. :) I always work out by myself cuz I feel judged cause I’m a little chubby :P

  539. Lori says:

    I am a crazy Siamese lady!! My Meeser is my world and he came with his own eyeliner!!

  540. Dee Dee says:

    Ok, so when you say crazy cat lady, would you say that letting your cat be in charge of your apartment when you travel is crazy or crazy smart? I mean, she is 13 after all, almost the same age I was when I was babysitting other people’s kids. It’s not like I leave her with my credit cards or anything. That would just be odd. :)

  541. Birdiebee says:

    What a beautiful bag. I have never had a purse/bag that cost over $20. This is a wonderful giveaway!

  542. Candace says:

    Wow, I was totally lusting over this bag earlier today! That means it’s kismet that I win it……..right? LOL

  543. Marie says:

    I’m a crazy cat lady :)

  544. Eva says:

    Do you usually keep your New Year’s Resolutions?

    I try. At this point my resolution is just to survive my last semester of school.

    Happy New Year!

  545. Jovanna R says:

    How fabulous to come across your blog and finding some great reviews on products I’ve been wanting to try but now FANTABULOUS giveaway. I can’t wait to read some more.

    But alas, I’m not a crazy cat lady yet but once we get ours I know I will be and not ashamed :)

  546. Miki says:

  547. chana says:

    I would love to have that purse! I am somewhat of a purse addict! They always fit! That style is really fabulous!

  551. Marisa says:

    Are you a crazy cat lady? Nope, (at least not yet lol =D ) I actually prefer dogs, but like most cats too, so maybe I could someday become the “crazy cat lady”, lol =D

    Describe your current favorite purse. Right now the coolest purse/ handbag I’ve seen is the Harveys Seatbelt Bag, yet although it is made from recycled seatbelt material, it is still really adorable, my favorite part is the pink elephant design ion the inside. http://www.zappos.com/harveys-seatbelt-bag-ltd-fall-2013-medium-tote-ltd1

    Do you have any New Year’s Eve traditions? Yes, staying up all night, watching movies while eating popcorn and candy.

    Umbrella or raincoat? Umbrella.

    Do you prefer to exercise by yourself or with other people? Either, but generally I find it more fun to exercise with others.

    How far is your commute to work/school? Not very far.

  556. Laura Case says:

    I’m definitely a crazy cat lady, that beautiful purse would be able to cart around a bunch of treats for my kitty. I would love to win that purse, what a dream come true.

  557. Lindsey O. says:

    I definitely consider myself a crazy cat lady! I really love cats and everything cat related :) I’m from Hawaii so we have our local New year’s traditions (a lot of Hawaiian, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, etc. food!). I currently go to school in southern California and I live in the dorms so it’s easy to get to class :)

  558. Alexandria says:

    My favorite current purse is the one I just bought yesterday afternoon! It’s a Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Percy purse in Cardamom.

  559. Ayen says:

    I am a crazy cat lady! I snuggle with my neighbor’s cat (lol) he comes here everyday and stays outside our porch even if it’s ten degrees outside! Though we still dont know his name,we like to call him sylvester! He’s the cutest and most friendliest cat i’ve ever known and me and my hubby love him to bits!

  560. Le Q says:

    Crazy Bag Lady

  561. Rebecca says:

    I am allergic to cats

  562. Erika says:

    Love your blog and personality!

    I prefer to exercise alone. That way I don’t have to worry about how I look when I’m really pushing myself!

  563. Winola says:

    Yep, I’m a crazy cat lady and it’s all because my beauty-full 4-legged daughter decided to adopt me over 7 years ago.

    Like your 4-legged son, Tabs, she too is a tabby!!

    Tabbies 4-ever!!

  564. Emily Walker says:

    I really love umbrellas, but I rarely have it with me at the right time. I have a small polka dot one, and a large purple one. Furthermore, I do not own a raincoat, and I need one. I live in an area where rain is a very good possibility on a daily basis. I need to both carry an emergency umbrella, and buy myself a rain coat. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

  565. Marsha says:

    Oh wow that is one gorgeous purse. I usually carry a Vera Bradley bag since they are lightweight and made in my home state. I am a former fashion and makeup maven who has been off track (mommy, career) and am trying to get motivated to return to my formerly fashionable way after losing weight. Thank you for your fun to read blog.

  566. Liz says:

    Happy New Year!

  567. Kimberly says:

    Umbrella kind of girl. It is too hot where I,m from to wear a Rain Coat.

  568. Ugh I never win these giveaways but I won’t give up !!! I’m determined lol

  569. B.W. says:

    I’m a umbrella kind of girl~

  570. Caroline says:

    I’m a closet crazy cat lady. If hubby found out I may not have a hubby. ;).

  571. Sutton says:

    I’m more dog crazy but I do enjoy my cats

  572. Krista J. says:

    awesome giveaway!

  573. dijana says:

    I would loveeeee to win this Ive never had a designer bag! :D

  574. Van says:

    I too have been wishing and dreaming and strategizing on the acquisition of a LV bag so to win one would be a dream come true.

    Personally I prefer to workout in group classes, for me its a much better motivator than spending 45 mins alone on a treadmill or elliptical ..ie the lands where time stands still.

  575. Sarah says:

    I know they say it’s more beneficial to exercise with someone else to keep you competitive and motivated, but I always go solo. It makes me less grumpy, and I have my marathon-running husband to keep me motivated and accountable.

  576. Angelica Saldivar says:

    lovely bag!!

  577. Sabrina says:

    My commute to work is (without traffic) typically a 12 minute drive, with morning or afternoon traffic it is anywhere from 20-30 minutes typically.
    When making up my workout for myself, I prefer to do it alone. When doing any kind of running or “boot camp” style I like to do in a group.
    Umbrella or raincoat are better than nothing!

  578. Anna says:

    I prefer to exercise alone- I see it as my meditation time of the day.

  579. Leah H says:

    I am not a crazy cat lady but I come from a long line of them! Haha I do love cats though, just not quite on the level that my Mom and grandma do :)

  580. janika3689 says:

    I am not a crazy cat lady, I find cats cute but I don’t think I would ever own one.

  581. Julie says:

    I am a total crazy cat lady! I was always a dog person until I adopted my first kitten, and now (3 years later) I am officially a cat person (and have adopted a second, as well!)
    Julie recently posted … Love It or Toss It? #1

  582. Joy Johnson says:

    Karen – I need to win this bag because it matches my cat’s fur and I’d be able to carry her all around town. Her name is The Mama, and wouldn’t you just love to see that winning photo? *crossing fingers*

  583. Natalie Anderson says:

    I love this purse!! I just bought an Ivanka Trump purse at Marshall’s that I really love.

  584. Cathy says:

    Umbrella for me. Thank you :)

  585. Irene says:

    I drive about 45 minutes to get to work because I have to drop my kids off first otherwise it’d only be 15-20 minutes. Exciting giveaway.

  586. Jennifer Pham says:

    I like cats! But I don’t own any.

  587. Majick says:

    Of course I’m a crazy cat lady, but I do hope the days of trapping and neutering ferals is behind me; that was a really “crazy” time.

    My favorite handbag is one my DH bought me on our honeymoon 23 years ago. Very cool printed leather, no designer. I put it somewhere “safe” and now I really wish I could find it.

    THis LV is REALLY cool and I’m not a big “logo” type person. I would love to win.

  588. Cherie Montorio says:

    I am not a cat person. I love dogs. I have two, a pitbull and a chihuahua. They are my world.

  589. Tuhina Dayal says:

    This LV is beautiful! I’m an animal lover – but don’t have any right now because of my crazy job!

  590. Tasneem says:

    Currently I am lusting after Kate Spade. But, this bag definitely stopped me in my tracks too!

  591. Kate says:

    My current favorite handbag is the large Borough handbag by Coach in the color alpine moss. It was a Christmas gift from the Hubs, and I love it. I am not a crazy cat lady myself (allergies), but I do love cats and my mom can be considered a crazy cat lady. Good luck to everyone!

    Kate

  592. Crystal says:

    My boyfriend’s mom could be considered a crazy cat lady. She currently has 5 cats & counting. She can’t stand to see strays so she just takes them in. I am an avid animal lover. I could probably be considered a crazy dog lady. I treat my dog like he is my child. Most of my comments, posts, pictures on social media are about my dog & nothing else.

    And it is worth noting that I might just die if I win this.

  593. Basak says:

    I am a lucky person who commutes to work in ten minutes. Nowadays though it is more like a 30-min trip due to driving via the daycare :)

  594. Brenda says:

    For New Year’s Eve my family celebrates big. We go all out with fireworks, awesome food, drinks, desserts, music, and we look our best! And my New Years resolution is to start to work out but that never happens so this year I am going to Change it up :-)! And I like to work out with my husband!

  595. Makai says:

    Wow! What a bag! Happy new year, everyone!

  596. Whitney says:

    I got three crazy cat lady themed gifts from my secret santa this year… I didn’t think I was one until she decided for me! What an amazing giveaway!

  597. Liz says:

    I was born a crazy cat lady. Why else would I have kittylitter.net as my personal domain? LOL. Numbers have ranged from 3 to 11 in residence at any given time (not counting fosters), currently settled at 4.

  598. Rachel says:

    I’m a cat lady, but i’m not crazy!

  599. Peggy Wan says:

    I am not a cat lady due to allergies but I am for sure a dog lady.

  600. Jess Scull says:

    This is my dream bag! Thanks for the chance!

  601. Sophie says:

    I am allergic to cats
    My favorite purses are by Spartina449

  602. CC says:

  603. Amy says:

    My crazy cat would fit perfectly in that bag :)

  604. Tanya Holland says:

    I am allergic to cats but I am a crazy lady.

    A new NYE tradition I want to start off is burying all my troubles for the past year near the beach and watch it wash away.

  609. tomate farcie says:

    I love red lipstick!

  610. Suzy says:

    I am a crazy cat AND dog lady – I have 3 dogs and 1 cat (a rescue)

    I think they are my substitute kids, and I’m okay with that :)

  611. Lisa M. says:

    Our New Year’s tradition is a small party with the family.

  612. Brenda says:

    NYE traditions…more like superstitions because we have to fill our home with lots of fruits (mostly circle ones for money). My mother-in-law used to hang grapes too. Serve sweet sticky rice so we as family can stick together; noodles for long life and ham or some kind of Pork dish for prosperity. We all wear polka dots and carry coins in our pockets and jump when the clock strikes 12.

  613. Amelia says:

    I. Am. In. Shock. This is a fabulous giveaway! I. MUST. WIN. IT. MUST. MUST. MUST.

    Am I a crazy cat lady? You bet. Do I have a cat? No, my husband is deathly allergic. So how can I be a cat lady? I live vicariously through other cat ladies!! I have a co-worker who has a Facebook page for her amazing cat and I am a fan. If I see a cat, I think about what it would be like to take it home. But I love my husband so alas I must forever live through others. Sigh…

    I must add that I love your site! I am obsessed with Nars and your reviews of Nars products are just perfect. This site is so not good for my wallet! :o)

  614. Amy says:

    Wow! This bag is a piece of art! Winning this is not just a dream come true, it’s like the best-of-all dreams come true. Fingers crossed !!!

  615. Brooke says:

    I am not a crazy cat lady…I love cats, but I’m more of a dog person!!

  616. Maxine says:

    What an amazing give-away. Thanks Karen!

  617. Linda says:

    This is an amazing giveaway!

  618. Shweta says:

    Not only do you have great taste in make-up, but also in bags!!!

  619. amym says:

    My current favorite bag is my cognac Coach! It would quickly be replaced with this LV though!

  620. Angel L says:

    Are you a crazy cat lady? Crazy about cats and dogs

    Describe your current favorite purse. Don’t have a favorite but I am partial to the classic Coach bucket

    Do you have any New Year’s Eve traditions? DH, daughter and I stay in pj’s and eat snacks all night – Champagne at midnight for us and sparkling cider for my daughter. – We also have tv series marathons – we save a particular series all season on DVR and then watch all episodes back to back. Fun!

    Umbrella or raincoat? neither. I like to feel the rain on my skin.

    Do you prefer to exercise by yourself or with other people? hmm I prefer not to excercise haha

    How far is your commute to work/school? 15 minutes on way to work.

  621. hayley says:

    Hi, awesome Giveaway!! And yes I am a crazy cat lady…

  622. Clare says:

    I’m just a crazy animal lady, full stop. Cats, dogs, horses, goats, you name it! My first thought on seeing this (stunning, spring-like, utterly gorgeous) bag was that my new puppy would fit perfectly into it – for errands around town. I’ve found that people are much less likely to tell you no dogs allowed if they’re tucked into a classy-looking bag:)

  623. Melanie says:

    I’m gonna miss my 5 minute commute to work. LA traffic is horrid.

  624. Jennifer says:

    My favorite purse is the Healthy Back Bag by Ameribag. I have them in nylon, leather, and a few prints. They’re always comfortable to carry no matter how much I stuff them. Since I’m the family packhorse I have to carry a lot!

  625. Supriya says:

    I am actually scared of cats, so I would never be a crazy cat lady lol :)

  626. Lorraine says:

    In San Francisco, I need a good raincoat. because you can never find the umbrella when you really need it.

  627. Stephanie G says:

    I don’t have a favorite purse, in fact I don’t even own a designer purse! Shame on me right? I’ve been stuck in diaper bags and whatever kind of bag we can throw sippy cups and snacks into for the last several years. I could really use this!!!

  628. Julie L says:

    I’m definitely a crazy cat lady! I have 3; Noodles, Mepp, and Dixie Mao! :)

  629. Alexis says:

    I absolutely love how you put your cat on your blog! I would be a crazy cat lady, but sadly, my boyfriend hates cats. I tell him he has no heart. I have a cats all of my life and the past few years have been really hard for me because he won’t let me have one. :( your blog is amazing. Two of my favorite things, cats and makeup!

  630. Nicole says:

    Gorgeous bag! Love your blog!!

  635. Kristina says:

  641. lesleyk says:

    What a beautiful bag! Yes, I am a crazy cat lady. I have four and am currently making plans to relocate two of my babies with me when I move halfway around the world in two weeks. Yeesh. My loving boyfriend, who is staying here in Texas, will take care of the other two during my assignment abroad, thank goodness.

  642. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    Nothing like going out with a BANG on the final giveaway!

  646. Melissa says:

    I’m a crazy cat lady that just recently discovered I’m allergic to cats! I would love to win this purse. My dad gave me my moms old LV purse after she passed away last year and I would love to have one of my very own.

    I so wanted this bag for my BD, but got the neverfull GM instead.

  651. Danna says:

    Lately I have been carrying a brown, suede cross-body bag that I can fit my essentials in. I just haven’t felt like lugging around my big bag during the holiday shopping season.

  655. Cyn uehara says:

    I am a cray cray dog person. Thx for this great giveaway. I also love neutrogena!

  656. Cyn uehara says:

    Yes I commute to work. About an hour w traffic each way.

  657. Michelle says:

    Amazing giveaway! I got hooked on Kate Spade handbags due to your post on one of her sales. I don’t own a LV, however :)

  658. Michelle says:

    I’m a bit more of a crazy dog lady but I still think Tabs is the cutest! :)

  659. Mimi says:

    I’ve been coveting this bag for I don’t know how long now! My current have is a brown patent leather briefcase style purse with a croc pattern. Love it but sometimes it’s a pain to open :(

  660. KaySue says:

    I am lucky to have a very short commute to work – close to ten minutes each way.

  661. Taylor Beaver says:

    Love the blog and love the giveaway. And I’m totes a crazy cat lady! Keep up the amazing work!

  662. Anastasia says:

    What a beautiful bag… I can see why you’ve liked it so long! Wonder if Tabs would fit in there :-D Thanks for the giveaway offer, Karen, and happy new year!

  663. Shari says:

    I was never a cat fan until much like you, we were adopted by a stray piece of fluff who worked her sassy way into our hearts. Two years later, she reigns our little world, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Her name is Sweet Thing, but my niece christened her “Meow Meow” and it just stuck. :-)

  664. Kylie says:

    I like the bubble umbrella + long navy trench combo if I’m dressed up. If not, it’s my hooded North Face windbreaker!

  665. stacey says:

    That bag is amazing. I am a crazy cat lady and a crazy puppy lady!

  666. Daraya says:

    I prefer a raincoat, but I usually just end up using an umbrella! :)

  667. Valeria says:

    Love this bag!’

  668. Christeen says:

    I really like the color and style of the purse.

  669. mandy says:

    I prefer to exercise (when I actually do) alone, that way I am the only mortified by my huffing and puffing!
    Can’t wait for the giveaway!

  670. Bev says:

    Umbrella all the way! Much easier to pack away when it stops raining.

  671. Rachel says:

    I <3 Tabs!

  672. Aubrey says:

    My favorite purse is currently this Coach purse my mom got me for Christmas 2 years ago. It’s black with the signature C’s in grey and this lovely shimmery silver. The only complaint I have about it is that the shoulder strap (it’s a hobo bag) is a bit too thin but otherwise I loooove it.

  673. Amy says:

    That is quite the stylish bag! What an awesome gift for subbies! Karen, I am not a cat lady, but you make me wish I was! :) LOL

  674. Tania G says:

    Having to tote kids, bags, other things, I can’t also carry an umbrella since my hands are busy with other things. So it’s a rain jacket for me always!

  675. Charisma says:

    I prefer to exercise with other people, and yes I am a crazy cat lady!

  676. Mariel says:

    Exercise alone- just me and my I-pod.

  677. kristina says:

    i guess you can call me a crazy cat lady! i love me some cats! i like dogs but to a certain extent.

  678. Razzledazzle says:

    What a great giveaway! I love the purse, it’s gorgeous! I like to workout with a friend, but nobody ever wants to go to the gym with me so I always end up going alone :(

  679. Karrie says:

    I’m the craziest of cat ladies… 5 and counting!!

  680. Seriously, I’d totally be a cat lady.. but I’m allergic =( I’ve rescued a kitten before and kept him til we could find him a good home… sick the whole time but he has a happy life now =)

    TY for the giveaway <3 This is such a lust bag… I love the white Damier.

  683. Emmi Estero says:

    Are you a crazy cat lady?
    Kinda. I’m a sucker for kittens <3

    Describe your current favorite purse.
    Dem purple Michael Kors bag. Just perfect in it's Saffiano leather goodness

    Do you have any New Year’s Eve traditions?
    12 fruits in a bowl ~ like most Filipinos

    Umbrella or raincoat?
    Umbrella, ella, ella, eh

    Do you prefer to exercise by yourself or with other people?
    With other people, I think it helps motivate you more than working out alone

    How far is your commute to work/school?
    About 18 miles. But it feels like 40 with traffic :(

  684. Melissa says:

    I would definitely consider myself a crazy animal lady! We have two cats and a dog :)

  685. My favorite bag is my black, leather Prada bag. I had a matching Prada wallet, but I left it a Dunkin Donuts counter in Brooklyn. :(

    Anywhoo, love your blog. <3

    Happy Holidays! :D

  689. Susan says:

    That is indeed a gorgeous purse!

    I just received a Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5-Zip in Scarlet as a Christmas gift. I love the petite size (perfect for Disneyland and power shopping trips) and coral-y red color.

    I adore cats, but I don’t have any right now (my husband *thinks* he doesn’t like them…I need to convince him otherwise). I do have three chihuahua mixes that I adopted from the local shelter and, along with my husband and daughter,they are the loves of my life.:)

    I currently love my seatbelt bag (not a Harveys, but it will do)

  725. Dria says:

    So my new years tradition is lottery tickets and Chinese food is that wrong? nope I don’t think so. I decided my new years resolution is to take care of my skin and hair. I have always been embarrassed that I had course hair! I did not inherit my moms hair doh! I want to be a mermaid when I grow up… I’ll be 35 this year…awww that is scary. mid life crisis.. not really but the next person who asks me if I’m getting married or having kids I might punch in the face.

  726. Joy says:

    Thank you very much Karen! You are too sweet!

    I definitely am a crazy cat lady but I have to wait until I graduate to get a new kitty!

  760. Helena says:

    I prefer to exercise with my boyfriend. I can’t do it alone!

  761. Amy says:

    I would totally be a crazy car lady but hubby is allergic. We have a little schnauzer that we love to pieces though. She’s our only child so she’s a little crazy spoiled and people around us think we are insane.

  762. Jenny Williamson says:

    Wow Karen, you out done yourself.
    Who wouldn’t want LV bag! Pick ME!

  763. Myriam says:

    OMG! I have been in love with Louis Vuitton bag for has long as I can remember. The colors, the logo, THE QUALITY everything, unfortunatly it’s WAY too expensive for me. Never in this lifetime would I be able to afford a single bag at 1,600$. But I am sure it’s worth the investment!

  764. Amanda Dietririch says:

    Love this bag!

  765. LeeAnn says:

    Always umbrella! Never owned a raincoat. :)

  766. janemmontague@gmail.com says:

    pre-crazy cat lady here! I’m currently in the slow process of acquiring an obsessive number of overly-loved cats ( the house is a pregnant stray magnet, one of the wonders of the world no doubt). The most impressive event to date would be the litter born in my brothers drum kit!

  767. Lan says:

    Fa la la la la :)

  768. Joyce B. says:

    This is a beautiful bag. And I am also a crazy cat lady, I am owned by an 18-lb. tabby named Buddy. He looks a lot like Tabs, but he’s not a kitty model. Yet.

  769. kayla says:

    Yesss!! I am definitely a crazy cat lady!! That’s why I love it when you post pictures of Tabs! At my parent’s house we have five cats that are indoor and two dogs. My favorite bag/purse right now is from forever21.

  770. Amber J says:

    WOW, this tote is stunning! As for fitness, I always do it better when I’m with other people! Group fitness classes are my life. Heck, I have a personal trainer just so I have someone that has to talk to me while I’m grinding it out for an hour. Me solo = me not at the gym!

  771. Cezka says:

    My family has this weird tradition/belief where we have to open all doors, windows, & cabinets on New Years just to let the “bad” out & invite the fresh & new. It sounds bizarre because it is hahaha but I’m used to it. & we have to be SUPER LOUD to frighten away “bad spirits” its fun stuff actually

  772. Susan s. says:

    Im definately a crazy cat lady. I had to get a ranch in AZ to take in all my rescue kitties! My cat Nordie (short for nordstrom after one of the awesomest places to shop) likes the LV bag and says it can hold a lot of cat toys for them! :) You look great in the MAC Magnetic Nudes!

  773. Hillary says:

    I love cute rain boots! And that Louis bag!

  774. Rakhi says:

    what do you do with all the make up you have collected?? do you use all of them??or give them away to people?? :)

  777. Gpatrick says:

    Truthfully, I thought I’d never post anything about exercise or weight loss. It’s hard stuff. I just have one key of advice to anyone looking to start. Go with a friend. The process has been made that much easier by having a confidant and sweat buddy to get things accomplished with. Sometimes my iPod can’t replace that sound of advice and motivation, and although music is a motivation in itself, there’s nothing like having a friend there just to share the experience with.

  778. Sarah says:

    Currently loving my bargain of a purse – a tote from the Phillip Lim for Target collaboration! Hoping to get a slightly bigger purse so the Selina would be absolutely perfect! Happy New Year!!

  786. Katie says:

    Happy new year’s, Karen, El Hub, and Tabs! I’m not starting the year off very well – literally. Tiredness from the last two days emerged as a stuffy nose and sore throat this morning, ugh! I need to start eating right (all this holiday food!) and exercising again.

    I would love to win this bag for my mother (she’s been through a lot this year), but if she doesn’t want it, I don’t think she’d mind I keep it for myself ;)

  787. Elisabeth says:

    I am sooo a crazy cat lady, and proud of it! I love my two fur babies! :)
