    Please pick me! This would be the perfect gift to help this college student make it through a rough season of finals!!

  2. KRiSTOPHER DUKES  |  7 April 2008 at 12:40 AM

    Because were I the gay man everyone assumes I am, I would lust for overpriced product the way I’d lust for a _____ in my _____.


    PS. Answer to my fill-in-the-blanks is “Bible” and “bookshelf,” respectively.

  3. Beatrice  |  7 April 2008 at 1:46 AM

    the daily obsession is truly a blessing to those who want to stay on top of what’s new & fresh yet classic & chic at the same time.

    Happy (upcoming) 2nd Anniversary!!!

    I’d love to get selected cause with all the love you’re sharing, there’s more than enough for me to share with some of the amazing females in my life.

  4. Heather Lipner  |  7 April 2008 at 3:42 AM

    I want to win to feed my obsession

  5. Araby  |  7 April 2008 at 4:20 AM

    I’m very pregnant and am in desperate need of some pampering. And, who wouldn’t want to receive a package filled with free stuff.

  6. Suzee  |  7 April 2008 at 4:35 AM

    Congrats on your 2 year mark – pick me if you want a hip fashionista and beauty junkie to win!

  7. cgb  |  7 April 2008 at 4:59 AM

    Sounds great. I really need all the help I can
    get….to look good! Its getting harder and harder…. 4 children, living in the burbs, driving a suburban (could be worse … could be a minivan!) and here is the worst part…
    ABOUT TO TURN 40!!!!

  8. Kim  |  7 April 2008 at 5:14 AM

    Happy (pre-) Birthday! I read your blog daily and wish you continual success in the future.

    I’m graduating this year and will be moving to the west coast! This package will definitely help with the new transition.

    Of course, I’ll also share this with my two sisters! We share everything. 🙂

  9. Heidi  |  7 April 2008 at 5:38 AM

    Happy Birthday TDO! You have inspired me and caused many lemmings. My bank account has suffered, but I am all the more fabulous for it!

  10. Lindsay-Jean  |  7 April 2008 at 5:41 AM

    Happy early birthday!! I would love to win because I am moving to Japan in less than four months, and although I’ll of course keep reading your fabulous blog I think I will have a hard time finding a lot of your obsessions to try over there – so I’d be ecstatic if I was chosen! Thanks for sharing your birthday celebration with all of your readers!

  11. Jen  |  7 April 2008 at 5:43 AM

    Happy early birthday!

    I’d love to win because I’ve had the worst few weeks ever, and this would totally brighten my day!

  12. Lauren  |  7 April 2008 at 5:45 AM

    I’m a huge fan of the blog and have been there since the almost-beginning! Great job everyone at TDO!

  13. Sarah  |  7 April 2008 at 5:55 AM

    I would like to win because I am the biggest product whore in existence – and I can never get enough!


    Happy Birthday TDO!

  14. Tory  |  7 April 2008 at 6:00 AM

    Could this giveaway get any better?!

  15. Jamie  |  7 April 2008 at 6:03 AM

    Happy B-day TDO!

  16. Maggie Shaw  |  7 April 2008 at 6:18 AM

    Because I need some happiness after a bad breakup! And I love new products! I’d be like a kid in a candy store.

  17. sara  |  7 April 2008 at 6:20 AM

    I read your blog each day and congrats on two years of success! I would like to win one of the prizes (who wouldn’t?) but especially because my birthday is the day before your anniversary. I can’t think of a better birthday present. Cheers!

  18. Julie  |  7 April 2008 at 6:33 AM

    Could there be a better giveaway?? Ever??? I don’t think so, and I’d be THRILLED to win this one. Thanks!!!

  19. ScarGrace  |  7 April 2008 at 6:36 AM

    Oh my gosh! I would love love to win that! Pick me! Pick me!

  20. Sonia  |  7 April 2008 at 7:08 AM

    because i love TDO & i love all kinds of products!

  21. Chiara  |  7 April 2008 at 7:11 AM

    I want to win because I’m in college and too poor to afford good make up! I usually get stuck with my mom’s leftovers!

  22. Claudia  |  7 April 2008 at 7:12 AM

    Happy Birthday! I have no good reason as to why I want to win. I don’t NEED any of what you are giving away. But, boy, would it make me happy if I did! 🙂 I guess that’s not a bad reason, is it? Please enter me, and thanks so much for such a great drawing!

  23. Lisa A  |  7 April 2008 at 7:13 AM

    Because what better way to start off a Monday than to win lots of makeup!

  24. Jennifer K  |  7 April 2008 at 7:13 AM

    Happy Anniversary! I would love to win because you have created many a lemming for my inner beauty junkie.

  25. Laura M  |  7 April 2008 at 7:17 AM

    I look forward to reading your site every day. I’d love some new makeup for spring and this package sounds great!

  26. Paula W.  |  7 April 2008 at 7:24 AM

    As an older girl who had dedicated this year to relearning everything about beauty, this would be a great crash course. I would love this!

  27. Stephanie  |  7 April 2008 at 7:26 AM

    omg this is amazing! i am a poor premed student who loves makeup but hasn’t been able to afford any since she started college! i hope i win!

  28. erin  |  7 April 2008 at 7:27 AM

    I want to win because everything on that list sounds amazing. Congratulations.

  29. Lisa  |  7 April 2008 at 7:27 AM

    First, congratulations on your 2nd anniversary!

    For months, I have only lusted after many of the beauty gems detailed and discussed on “The Daily Obsession.” Building a new business requires the inevitable sacrifice or two, so I have lived vicariously through the delicious postings found here. Winning your fabulous giveaway would put me in the game!

    Blog on!

  30. nar  |  7 April 2008 at 7:30 AM

    congrats on 2yrs! this giveaway looks amazing… would love to be picked!

  31. Cynthia  |  7 April 2008 at 7:31 AM

    It sounds fabulous

  32. karen dixon  |  7 April 2008 at 7:33 AM

    Looking at this list of products is dizzying and exciting. I am a busy mom of 2, now in my mid-30’s. With little time to shop and an increasing need for beauty products, I would LOVE to win this prize! Thanks TDO

  33. Emily  |  7 April 2008 at 7:35 AM

    I would love to win this contest because I’m new to the blog and have just spent the past two hours catching up on old posts! Can’t wait to add this to my bookmarks!

  34. Helen  |  7 April 2008 at 7:36 AM

    Congratulations on two years! I would love to win so I can finally see why everyone raves about these beauty products!

  35. Christine Mikesell  |  7 April 2008 at 7:39 AM

    Wow, this is a rather amazing prize. I’m not sure it would be psychologically healthy for me to win such a prize as I would be only MORE obsessed with beauty products, but that is a chance that I am willing to take!

  36. Lindsey  |  7 April 2008 at 7:39 AM

    Congrats, love the site!!! I hope this beauty junkie wins:)

  37. Sarah M  |  7 April 2008 at 8:07 AM

    Happy birthday!

    While I don’t need to win – I’d love to win to freshen up my look for summer. Thanks for entering me – and good luck to all!


  38. Carolyn Topete  |  7 April 2008 at 8:08 AM

    Because I love beauty products but can’t afford to spend my entire paycheck on them!

  39. Aurora  |  7 April 2008 at 8:13 AM

    I would love to win. Half of these products I’ve been dying to try!
    Thanks, TDO!

  40. Allison  |  7 April 2008 at 8:16 AM

    Happy Birthday TDO! What an amazing price and SO generous!

    I would love to win because I have been a loyal reader and looke to you on a daily basis for a slight escape from the busy-ness of the working world! Thanks for providing me with an escape from reality!

  41. Brenna  |  7 April 2008 at 8:20 AM

    I love everything about TDO & I would love to especially win the spectacular prize pack/giveaway above! I’m an unpaid intern so winning this giveaway will definitely help replenish my beauty supplies without costing me an arm & a leg & my personal style. Thanks!

  42. Bonnie  |  7 April 2008 at 8:24 AM

    Winning this contest would be a perfect birthday gift for me as I turn 50 on april 14 and could use all the help I can get

  43. Emmy  |  7 April 2008 at 8:25 AM

    Happy Birthday!!!
    It’s so much more fun to give on your birthday, isn’t it? Of course I’d be happy to help with the receiving part 😉
    I fancy myself a blogger without the blog – I test WAY too many products and then entertain my friends with the stories of victory and defeat!

  44. Sasha  |  7 April 2008 at 8:26 AM

    I would love to win because I wouldn’t have to spend any money on beauty products for like the whole year and could instead save my money in case I lose my job in this recession!

  45. jana borgen  |  7 April 2008 at 8:29 AM

    Wow! So many of those items are my obsessions too! Congratulations on your blog-iversary!

  46. lise  |  7 April 2008 at 8:32 AM

    what a way to celebrate – this is a fabulous giveaway! I’m in need of a make-over ever since having my active toddler a few years ago.

  47. Mary  |  7 April 2008 at 8:34 AM

    Happy anniversary! What can I say? I’d kill for these products!

  48. amy  |  7 April 2008 at 8:36 AM

    Happy Birthday!

    Please pick me, as I know you’re not going through your terrible twos – and that keeps me coming here!

  49. Amanda  |  7 April 2008 at 8:38 AM

    I ADORE The Daily Obsession, the epitome of style and taste. I would love to win this incredible prize and share all my new obsessions with my friends! Either way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TDO!

  50. Kate  |  7 April 2008 at 8:39 AM

    keep up the excellent blog girls. and yes, i want to win too!

  54. Jazabel  |  7 April 2008 at 8:45 AM

    Pick me because I am about to start law school and would love some new products to pamper myself before becoming a poor student again!

  55. Georgia  |  7 April 2008 at 8:49 AM

    I would love to win this package of goodie goodness because I want to play with makeup and be the envy of all my friends.

    Happy Birthday!

  56. Kristi  |  7 April 2008 at 8:50 AM

    Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you… ! amazing giveaway… lets just say this poor college girl would adore it!

  57. Jenna  |  7 April 2008 at 8:54 AM

    Please pick me! I’m getting ready to move to a city where I have no friends, and beauty products would definitely make up for being lonely!

  58. kate  |  7 April 2008 at 8:55 AM

    I am a poor law student, and these products would make studying for the bar so much more enjoyable!

  59. Sarah  |  7 April 2008 at 8:56 AM

    Happy Birthday! My b-day is coming up soon as well and as a hardcore beauty fanatic (I know, you can’t possibly relate right? lol) I would abso-friggin-lutely FREAK out if I actually won all of that fabulous loot! I’m also not above shamelessly begging, so please pick me!!!

  60. REGINA SANDERS  |  7 April 2008 at 8:59 AM

    Oh my! I would faint if I won this. I am such a beauty junkie! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

  61. Katie  |  7 April 2008 at 9:04 AM

    Happy Birthday and congrats, you ladies are amazing! This would be the perfect reward after an intense tax season. Please pick me!!!

  62. Lily  |  7 April 2008 at 9:10 AM

    Happy Anniversary!!

    Your site is absolutely brilliant…

    Lily x

  63. Carly  |  7 April 2008 at 9:11 AM

    Hey kids!

    Happy, Happy birthday! I’m a burgeoning beauty maven who’s just getting into makeup and products. As a grad student I don’t really have the budget for it yet, but I like to think that when I do, I’ll be in the know thanks to your blog and others like it!

  64. Rara  |  7 April 2008 at 9:12 AM

    Congratulations TDO! You’ve always been part of my Top 5 daily net surfing routine. I’d love to win this loot and totally transform into a true beauty junkie.

  65. tressa  |  7 April 2008 at 9:15 AM

    i really want to win.. is that reason enough? well my birthday is this week and I’m always up for a celebration. y not look good too? enough about me let’s talk about you – i luv the site. it’s great for the beauty fixes, info on sample sales and has had quite a few great interviews. keep up the good work!
    (and send me that prize!)

  66. Stephanie C.  |  7 April 2008 at 9:17 AM

    Could this giveaway be any better?! I would kill for this amazing loot! 🙂

  67. Jordan  |  7 April 2008 at 9:18 AM

    The biggest reason I should win is that I probably check this site at least 3 times a day while I’m sitting in class. Also I’ve been sick since last week and could really use the beauty products to make me look better!

  68. Jesslyn  |  7 April 2008 at 9:20 AM

    Why do I want to win? Because I’m the mother of an 8-month old and we have an agonizing few more days to wait till we find out if we’re already expecting our second. Because I have lots of products to help me be a good mom… but not much to help me be a good woman. Because I want my husband to easily be able to see his wife in the mother of his children! And frankly, because I’m a girl, and our bathrooms are tragically incomplete without great stuff like this!

  69. Meghan  |  7 April 2008 at 9:26 AM

    Pick me, pick me! I can certainly use a beauty pick me up – and just in time for spring!

    Happy birthday!

  70. Katherine  |  7 April 2008 at 9:26 AM

    The blog is awesome and so is this giveaway!

    – Kat

  71. Anne  |  7 April 2008 at 9:28 AM

    Who wouldn’t want to win this fabulous set of goodies. I wouldn’t have to buy any beauty products for years, and some of the brands are ones I’ve never even heard of.

  72. Katie  |  7 April 2008 at 9:28 AM

    Who wouldn’t want to win all of this stuff! I’m pulling my guilt card and think I deserve to win bacause I just had surgery Friday. On top of that no gym for weeks, so this will keep me from feeling like a big slob.

  73. Jessica  |  7 April 2008 at 9:30 AM

    I would love to win this because it’s as if The Daily Obsession picked out everything I would like or didn’t know I needed until right know, as was like let’s give it all away.

  74. Stephanie S  |  7 April 2008 at 9:42 AM

    I would love to win because there are so many products on the list that I haven’t had a chance to try yet. Plus I just moved to New York and I need to brighten myself up with a new look!

  75. Jamie  |  7 April 2008 at 9:43 AM

    I’d love to win this because … after a stressful day at work, what better way to unwind than with a basket full of amazing products? Plus, I totally want to be the envy of all my friends. 🙂 Happy 2nd anniversary!

  76. Jennifer Hoffmann  |  7 April 2008 at 9:44 AM

    I have never been disappointed with a suggestion from this site, only elated with the results! I love getting mail…and I can’t imagine a better surprise during stressful college finals! Keep up the good work and congrats on 2 years!

  77. Calvin J  |  7 April 2008 at 9:47 AM

    I would LOVE to win this for my wife, she is a makeup and beauty products addict!

    Thank You

  78. Melissa W.  |  7 April 2008 at 9:50 AM

    I stand on the edge of a shopping cliff. I’ve tip-toed closer to the edge, designer sunglasses here, boutique perfume there, purchasing a proper handbag by the end of the year is a must. TDO just might trigger the avalanche!

    Happy Birthday, Ladies!

  79. Michelle M  |  7 April 2008 at 10:10 AM

    Happy Anniversary TDO!!

    How could I not want the chance to win such an amazing prize? You all have amazing taste so I’m sure the goodies included will make any girl happy.

  80. Adina  |  7 April 2008 at 10:18 AM

    I would love to win because I am recently unemployed and can use all the help i can get in feeding my passion for luxury cosmetics. As a newer reader, I am so happy to have come across such a fabulous website!

  81. dami  |  7 April 2008 at 10:18 AM

    I would love to win because I’m a struggling college student w/ a 2 year old son. All the time not spent in school is spent with him. Which leaves me no time to pamper myself let alone buy new products to spoil myself with!

  82. Ashley K  |  7 April 2008 at 10:22 AM

    You guys are so sweet, giving us presents on your anniversary! I would love to win this set, which is soooo amazing btw, because I have been a loyal reader, checking your site once a day for as long as I can remember! Here’s to many many more years! Happy anniversary!

  83. Sara B  |  7 April 2008 at 10:29 AM

    Please please please pick me! I’m graduating in May and am stepping out into the working world, and need to look my best!

    Love the site! 🙂

  84. Becky M  |  7 April 2008 at 10:32 AM

    Congratulations on two years of hard work paying off! I am an 8 months pregnant working mama with a 3 and a 1/2 year old boy. If I don’t need some help in the beauty product department, I don’t know who does! PLEASE pick me!!

  85. Betsi S.  |  7 April 2008 at 10:34 AM

    Hmm, I just cleaned out my beauty closet last night! Now I might actually have room for all this fabulous stuff. Pick me please!

  86. Katie  |  7 April 2008 at 10:34 AM

    I want to win because I am building a house, planning showers and parties for my brother’s fiance (of which I am the matron of honor) and working a crazy job with crazier bosses! I have no time for beauty and I MISS IT!

  87. Natalie  |  7 April 2008 at 10:37 AM

    List a single reason why? It’s almost as hard as coming up with a reason *not* to enter! It’s so hard to know where to start in the world of big name makeup – this set would be a great jumping off point. Here’s to hoping…..Thanks for the chance TDO!

  88. Alicia  |  7 April 2008 at 10:39 AM

    What a great prize! I want to win because it is spring and I need a boost from that crappy winter….and I love beauty products with a crazy passion!

  89. Kym F.  |  7 April 2008 at 10:43 AM

    With all these goodies I can easily divvy them up between myself and 4 friends. That way, 5 women get to win this spectacular prize!

    Cheers to you on your second and best wishes for many more to come!

  90. Temi  |  7 April 2008 at 10:50 AM

    What an amazing giveaway.I would love to win all this stuff and share with my friends so pls pick me!

    School doesn’t leave me with much time to go shopping for myself–this sounds fantastic!

  93. Lisa Shull  |  7 April 2008 at 10:53 AM

    This is such an amazing offer, and I would love to win so I could show all my best friends how much I love and adore them! Finals season is upon us, and we could all use a little pampering. Thank you so much, and Happy Anniversary TDO!!

  94. Kate Young  |  7 April 2008 at 10:54 AM

    I would absolutely love to win this! I’m in college in NYC, and the crazy weather and pollution have made me sad and drab. Also, I adore this website and beauty in general.

  95. Duffi  |  7 April 2008 at 10:56 AM

    Oh, I just discovered your fabulous website! Please pick me, because I could put so many of those products to exceedingly good use! Not only would I look so much better, so would all my friends! so please… pick me!

    And congratulations on the anniversary!

  96. Tiger Friberg  |  7 April 2008 at 10:59 AM

  97. Maya Shaff  |  7 April 2008 at 11:11 AM

    Wow! There are so many wonderful products listed here–I am already “obsessed” :). I hope for YOUR birthday you get products as amazing as these!

  100. Kat  |  7 April 2008 at 11:21 AM

    I would love to win one of these packages so that I could share it with my sister and my mom while hosting a family “girls’ day!”

  101. Jenna  |  7 April 2008 at 11:22 AM

    Seriously amazing! I want to win so I can share it all with my precious friends and family. There is definitely something for everyone 🙂

    My co-workers would enjoy them too!

  106. Lindsey F  |  7 April 2008 at 11:39 AM

    Happy Birthday TDO!

    I hope to win because I need to replenish my stock of beauty products before I depart for the Peace Corps in June.

  107. Becky  |  7 April 2008 at 11:39 AM

    Happy Birthday! After being wiped out by tuition and the IRS, this would save me from being forced to eat Ramen for three months (rather than skimp on beauty products!)

  108. Krista  |  7 April 2008 at 11:39 AM

    Great package!!
    I’d love to win because I’m starting my own business and workin’ like a dog with what sometimes feels like little financial reward…so it would be fun pick-me-up! Plus, I’ve never won anything before!
    Happy birthday!

  109. lauren  |  7 April 2008 at 11:41 AM

    I would love to win because I am a beauty product junkie.

  110. Aly Rizzo  |  7 April 2008 at 11:43 AM

    I would love to win because I’m almost done with college, and considering that I’ve neglected my looks for my studies, I need to enter the career world with a fresh face. Pleeze! Thanks! ^_^

  114. Anna Marie C  |  7 April 2008 at 11:51 AM

    i’d love to win because i definitely need a pick me up. i’m obsessed with beauty products…but when you’re an ER doc, who has time for beauty?

  115. Jessica  |  7 April 2008 at 12:01 PM

    I would absolutely DIE if I won this because first of all, I love reading The Daily Obsession for all of your awesome picks that I can’t find anywhere else, and second of all because winning this would make my year… no, it would make my LIFE! Thank you TDO I love you!

  116. Brooke  |  7 April 2008 at 12:06 PM

  117. JB  |  7 April 2008 at 12:08 PM

    Happy Birthday, TDO!

    Who WOULDN’T love to win all those amazing prizes? 🙂

  118. corinneyb  |  7 April 2008 at 12:11 PM

    Wow, happy birthday/anniversary! Winning your giveaway would make an awesome 30th birthday gift – it would totally distract me from my 30th birthday!

  119. Elissa  |  7 April 2008 at 12:11 PM

    Happy Birthday!

    I would love to win this! I am a cosmetic junkie caught in withdrawal. I have just moved and can’t even shop at Walgreens! It is a sad state indeed.

  120. Allie  |  7 April 2008 at 12:14 PM

    I want to win because I am a beauty products addict AND a Daily Bosession addict! 🙂

  121. Michelle  |  7 April 2008 at 12:15 PM

    There’s really 3 reasons I’d to win:
    1. Because I never win
    2. I am a product junkie/addict/fan/specialist and love to spread the word about the best products to my friends and people around me.
    3. I’ve finally discovered how to get that perfect shave (for legs) – confirmed by my b/f who tells me its like I never shave (the biggest compliment ever!) and wants to know my secret!

  122. Lydia  |  7 April 2008 at 12:19 PM

    I want to win this because it looks totally awesome!

  123. Brankica  |  7 April 2008 at 12:30 PM

    Woo congrats! I would love to win because I’m sick and depressed… 🙁 Nothing seems to be the way it should be in the last month or so… *tear*
    Congrats to whoever wins! SHARE! 😀

  124. Silverin  |  7 April 2008 at 12:32 PM

    I can see me now! – if I won all those goodies, I’d be like a 10-year-old at Christmas, sitting on the floor, surrounded by paper and boxes, and bottles and jars and tubes and compacts and…

  125. Ivanna  |  7 April 2008 at 12:33 PM

    I would love to win because I adore your blog! It’s a great mix of beauty/fashion/insider advice–love it!

  126. Diann K  |  7 April 2008 at 12:33 PM

    Why pick me from all these amazing ladies? good question! First all, I love to celebrate birthdays, no matter how old I get – and am like a kid celebrating other people’s birthdays! I do love trying new products and would gladly give some of the booty to others I know as well. We ar emoving next week to a new house so in addition to being “house poor” we owe a big chunk to the IRS, so sadly I will not be able to shop for a while..

  127. Loeffler Obsessed  |  7 April 2008 at 12:36 PM

    Dear TDO,

    I would love to be the winner of this fantastic give-away. Ever since I first starting reading this, I have really been able to share my passion and love for products, clothing and accessories! I enjoy getting the lastest and greatest of the products that we all love.

    Thank you for being around for 2 years and I look forward to the next years!

  128. Shanmei  |  7 April 2008 at 12:37 PM

    Winning would be a dream come true. I love your blog for giving us beauty obsessed hopefuls a chance.

  129. Sarah R.  |  7 April 2008 at 12:38 PM

    Happy Birthday TDO!
    I would love to win because I can’t afford to buy all of these products on my budget, and I would love to get the chance to try them with my friends!

  130. gina  |  7 April 2008 at 12:41 PM

    I’d like to win because what better way to celebrate daily obsession than win a whole bunch of NEW stuff to obsess over?


  131. Milan  |  7 April 2008 at 12:49 PM

    Please pick me! My makeup obsession knows no bounds! Plus this set would really help a girl on a budget like me. Thanks!

  132. rachel  |  7 April 2008 at 12:50 PM

    Wow! It’s a beauty bonanza. Who wouldn’t want to win? I don’t have a story. I just think this is an amazing collection of products that I’d love to try.

  133. coachwife6  |  7 April 2008 at 12:51 PM

    Happy birthday! I would like to win because I love trying new items!

  134. Shari H.  |  7 April 2008 at 12:53 PM

    Happy Anny! I would love to win! I’m a full time grad student and can’t afford to buy many new items and I’m such a beauty junkie! Please, please pick me!

  135. eye4style  |  7 April 2008 at 12:53 PM

    Wow, what an amazing package of goodies! My beauty closet would be stocked up for years!!

  136. Michelle J  |  7 April 2008 at 12:57 PM

    These are all of the products I’d love to get my hands on! I’d end up sharing with my mother and best friend, but it’d be a great selection for all of us!

  137. linda mccorkle  |  7 April 2008 at 1:00 PM

    I don’t know if I am any more deserving than the next person but I sure would like to win the giveaway. I am truly a product junkie and am always looking for the next great one.

  138. Stacia Jaye  |  7 April 2008 at 1:14 PM

    I am in desperate need for some new beauty products. Please pick me :o)

  139. molly grace :]  |  7 April 2008 at 1:20 PM

    i would love to win because i’ve been working and saving money for my car and even towards college to help my mom out and this would be a fantastic reward! :]

  140. Marla  |  7 April 2008 at 1:22 PM

    I work too much, I’m still wearing Bobbie Brown brown eyeshadow (OLD) and never have found the right eyeliner, and with a better look I can go on to make partner and make a female-friendlier world. And the haul will be shared with mom, mom in law (both could use some new products and tips), sis in law now too busy to be on top of trends, assistants in the office, etc.

  141. Pam  |  7 April 2008 at 1:24 PM

    I would love to win because I’m obsessed with beauty products, but I’m a medical student with a lot of debt!! Would love to start my residency looking and smelling great!!

  142. Jessica  |  7 April 2008 at 1:24 PM

    I could really benefit from this giveaway. As a college student it is so hard to be able to afford quality products. Good luck everyone!

  143. Teri  |  7 April 2008 at 1:29 PM

    Congratulations on your Second Anniversary. Kudos and much more success to you.

    As I do not think it would be totally fair for me to win, being a fella beauty blogger, I would love to hear the screams of sheer delight of the two that are chosen to win this awesome prize.

    Best of luck and keep up the fantastic work – I am obsessed right here with ya.

  144. Erin  |  7 April 2008 at 1:31 PM

    I’d love to win this fabulous prize! So many great items to experiment and play with but I just don’t always have the extra cash to treat myself.

  145. Kristy Victoria  |  7 April 2008 at 1:34 PM

    I should win because otherwise I’d never get the chance to try half of these products!

  146. Kathryn  |  7 April 2008 at 1:35 PM

    Happy happy anniversary!!

  147. Penny  |  7 April 2008 at 1:36 PM

    Happy 2 years! And many more!

    I am a recovering tom boy and I work in an office. For the first time in my life, I want to look fantastic! I’ve been trying out different products to see what works best for me, but there are so many out there! It’s going to take a long time to work through all the neat products that I’ve read about here and on other blogs. This would give me a pretty good jump start at catching up on all the fabulous I’ve been missing.

  148. noel711  |  7 April 2008 at 1:38 PM

    Hey Ladies!

    Congratulations on your ongoing success!

    Love your blog!

    As an ‘over 50’ professional woman,
    my time is limited, as is my budget (still
    helping my lovely daughter through college!).

    But your terriffic words and suggestions lift my spirits, and make me smile, even on rainy days…

    Why should I be a winner? Because over 50 women need love, and fabulous products too!

  149. leslie k  |  7 April 2008 at 1:39 PM

    ahhhhh!!! desperately would LOVE to win!!! my makeup needs a major overhaul like you wouldn’t believe. i had a MAC obsession for too many years in college and to say the shades are clown-like and garish would be an understatement. also, i can never find great underwear and truly believe that you have amazing suggestions and perfect recommendations for me! this package looks AMAZING.

    p.s. happy bday!

    –longtime reader, firsttime commenter

  150. Anna  |  7 April 2008 at 1:43 PM

    Honestly, there’s probably no REALLY GOOD reason why anyone SHOULD win a $3200 bag of beauty goods. In fact, such a gift probably enourages vanity, and the Bible would absolutely hate that.

    That said, I am enduring Junior Spring of my highschool year. First of all, I should win it because I am in highschool, which is notoriously the best (?) and also worst (agreed) years of your life. Put Junior Spring college MADNESS into the mixture, plus three AP classes, and you’ve made for one sad little adolescent (who, contrary to stereotypes, does not like to run around screaming about how she hates her parents or how they are ruining my life, and I do not spend my life at the mall or hanging out in creepy parking lots). Therefore, throughout my adolescence I have worked hard, thus far refrained from giving my parents heart attacks and seizures, and have maintained my sanity.

    Where’s my gift basket?

  151. Shelly  |  7 April 2008 at 1:44 PM

    I want to win!

  152. allyson  |  7 April 2008 at 1:45 PM

    This prize is totally amazing. I want to win it because I love products but usually can’t decide on what to buy. Please pick me!!

  153. Scrangie  |  7 April 2008 at 1:46 PM

    Wow! How cool! I’d love to win cause I love products.. LOL

  154. Erica  |  7 April 2008 at 1:48 PM

    If I could only afford such products (I dream of them daily) I’d be the happiest girl in all the land.
    I’d sure love them for free!

  155. Wilkinson  |  7 April 2008 at 1:49 PM

    My girlfriend would love me forever.

  156. Jen  |  7 April 2008 at 1:49 PM

    Congrats on your anniversary-this is a great site!!!
    As to why I’d love to win: i’m a product junkie and looooove trying new things-not afraid of anything, and the majority of what’s on the list is untried and desirable~! Thx for the chance and all your hard work!

  157. Ashley Wilber  |  7 April 2008 at 1:54 PM

    I would love to win these beauty goodies… I am a bride-to-be on a very tight budget and really could use it all! 🙂

    I’m sure whoever wins it will be a very lucky gal!

    Good luck ladies!!!! 🙂

  158. Heather S.  |  7 April 2008 at 2:07 PM

    Because this will help me transition from the harsh Chicago winter, to the (hopefully) beautiful Chicago spring and summer…without scaring too many people with my pasty, pale skin.

    Plus, it would be a great gift for my mom for Mother’s Day…she share’s my love for beauty products and I think this would make her year! 🙂

  159. Robin  |  7 April 2008 at 2:10 PM

    I want it!!! I am a stay at home mom and desperately need the glamour.

  160. Judy  |  7 April 2008 at 2:12 PM

    Absolutely love your site! It is a staple in my daily routine! Keep it up!


  161. Hoan Ta  |  7 April 2008 at 2:14 PM

    I would love to win something like this. I’ve never tried one thing from that list of items. I think it would be a great opportunity to try these brands and branch out. I also believe that I would be generous to those around me since that is a lot of product.

  162. Rebecca  |  7 April 2008 at 2:20 PM

    I’d love to win because not only could I try things I’ve never even heard of, but I could review them for all to hear about. Most of all, I’ve been short of money for a while and would love to be able to share wonderful bath and body products with my best friends, Mom, Mother-in-Laws, and sister.

  163. Sania  |  7 April 2008 at 2:21 PM

    I love Lancome! I’d enjoy this grand prize if only just for the Lancome items, but would love to try everything else!

    Happy anniversary!

  164. Diya  |  7 April 2008 at 2:32 PM

    Happy Birthday, TDO! I was hoping to start my very own blog -I’ve been so inspired by this one – and this package would be the perfect inspiration for me and my friends. Keep up the good work!

  165. Ashley Wood  |  7 April 2008 at 2:38 PM

    I would love to win because anyone and everyone deserves to be pampered! I love beauty products and there are so many that I love and use and many that i would love to try!

  166. Janeen  |  7 April 2008 at 2:41 PM

    I love tdo and read it everyday to hear about new beauty products and designers… i would also love to try out all of these amazing products!

  167. Alexandra C.  |  7 April 2008 at 2:43 PM

    Congratulations! I’ll be graduating in a little over a month and a half and as a soon-to-be frugal post-grad it would be nice to have some amazing products that I can only dream about.

  168. Lauren Mac  |  7 April 2008 at 2:51 PM

    Because I’ve already told my mum that she can have all the Jurlique products (she’s Australian too and ever since we moved to the US she hasn’t been able to afford the luxury of her favourite Herbal Recover Gel). You wouldn’t wanna disappoint her!! And I’ve never won anything before so make this poor students dreams come true

    Love the site. Always checking for updates!

  169. Lisa  |  7 April 2008 at 2:52 PM

    Happy 2nd anniversary! I’d be absolutely over the moon if I won. I’m finishing my first year of university and this past month (not to mention the next month) has been hectic and unnecessarily stressful so such a prize would be a huge pick me up. Not to mention, something to share with my mom for her birthday and mother’s day!

  170. shabbi  |  7 April 2008 at 2:54 PM

    Happy early Birthday! I want to win cause I’ve been sick for the past few weeks and this would a great gift to cheer me up. I love makeup and would love sharing it with all 6 of my sisters!

  171. Rachel C.  |  7 April 2008 at 2:54 PM

    What a sweet giveaway!!! OMG and Happy 2nd Anniversary :o)

    I would totally love to win because there are sooo many of these products I have been wanting to try out. Happy Birthday!

  172. Ms E  |  7 April 2008 at 2:54 PM

    This would be a spectacular birthday gift! I love trying new things and this would be super fun!

  173. Cory  |  7 April 2008 at 2:55 PM

    i too am a tired college student looking for something fun to do (not to mention that I am a beauty junkie). I have been reading your site forever and would love to win

  174. Carrie  |  7 April 2008 at 2:58 PM

    hope its me 🙂

  175. David  |  7 April 2008 at 2:58 PM

    Pick me, this would be the best present ever for my wife.

  176. Olivia  |  7 April 2008 at 3:01 PM

    Hope I win!!!

  177. Dave W.  |  7 April 2008 at 3:04 PM

    Pick me because I am a good husband and father, and would like to make a present for my wife and daughter. Isn’t that sweet?

  178. dana  |  7 April 2008 at 3:05 PM

    i’d love to win because i never have the money to buy myself fancy things!

    happy anniversary!

  179. Tracy MW  |  7 April 2008 at 3:06 PM

    I like makeup!

  180. Katie  |  7 April 2008 at 3:13 PM

    I have super-sensitive skin, but don’t have enough money to buy the kind of makeup that doesn’t irritate my skin.

  181. Hazel  |  7 April 2008 at 3:22 PM

    I want to win this because makeup is awesome!

  182. Haina  |  7 April 2008 at 3:22 PM

    I love TDO! Happy birthday. I love new stuff. =D

  183. Lora  |  7 April 2008 at 3:28 PM

    I’m hoping it’s me…i’m nursing a broken heart.

  184. Jenni  |  7 April 2008 at 3:31 PM

    I want to win because i’m poor and my best friend always brags to me about all the expensive products she buys!

  185. Taffy  |  7 April 2008 at 3:32 PM

    I’m Canadian and can’t enter this contest but if I could enter I would say…Pick me please because I lost my job last year and could use a little good luck. I’m lucky to make the rent so please give some one who is in my kind of situation a chance! Good luck everyone!

  186. Rachel  |  7 April 2008 at 3:33 PM

    I want to win because I’m absolutely beauty product obsessed! I’m going off to college soon and I want to show up at my dorm room looking fabulous, and leaving a trail of drooling boys in my footsteps 😉

  187. Jenn  |  7 April 2008 at 3:37 PM

    Happy birthday 🙂 What a fantastic contest you have going on! I have a soft spot for beauty products and jewellery (I design and creative my own to pay my way through university), and your blog makes me so happy 🙂 Too bad I’m Canadian *sighs* but I love you guys anyways! 🙂 You’re going to make a couple of girls very happy…

  188. Rachel  |  7 April 2008 at 3:40 PM

    I want to win because I’m turning into a beauty junkie and I seriously don’t have the cash flow to support it!

  189. Deirdre  |  7 April 2008 at 3:42 PM

    Who doesn’t love new and exciting goodies!!Looks like great stuff to add to the obsession!! Happy 2nd TDO!!!!!!!!

  190. Kristen  |  7 April 2008 at 3:42 PM

    Happy Birthday! How fun! I could play for hours with all these goodies!

  191. Danielle  |  7 April 2008 at 3:43 PM

    As a struggling graduate student it’s hard to afford the good stuff. I wanna win so my outside will be as fierce as my inside.

  192. Emily  |  7 April 2008 at 3:44 PM

    You should pick me because I’m a broke college student who cannot buy any of these goodies for herself, but would love them ALL!

    Happy 2nd Anniversary! : )

  193. Gabby  |  7 April 2008 at 3:46 PM

    Hello, my name is Gabby and I am an abosolute beauty junkie. I drool at the sight of a Sephora and jump with glee if I make a discovery of an amazing product at the drugstore. The only problem with this is that I am still a student and I have a minimum amount of money. My mom and sister yell at me and convince me not to buy another mascara or hand cream, and thus I leave empty handed and sad. If I were to win this package I’d be able to fill all of my beauty dreams and maybe even share with my mom and sister :].

  194. Sabrinah  |  7 April 2008 at 3:54 PM

    I am in love with TDO! You are my homepage and I am here at LEAST once a day… So Happy Glamourous Birthday!
    I would love to win all these products I lust after!
    please pick me… the college student that is obsessed with TDO and make my beauty dreams come true!!!
    major love.

  195. Daisy  |  7 April 2008 at 4:06 PM

    Happy Birthday!!!

    I want it because I’m not a poor college student but a poor high school student that is a soon to be poor college student in…5 months. My makeup addiction is just starting and I would love to add more fuel to the fire.

  196. Deserey M.  |  7 April 2008 at 4:06 PM

    You MUST pick me! I just flew in to Phoenix last Thursday & they lost ALL my make up!!! I NEVER, I mean NEVER check my bags unless they make me. I seriously can pack light like no-one’s business. I’ve never wanted to be the one who loses their bags & have watched many friends who have balked at my fear of checking bags, cry when theirs are either torn to pieces(bahamas) or never show up(Spain).
    But I was going to be here for 2 weeks & I’m supposed to be doing the make up for my cousins wedding on the 12th (plus a few make overs for my fam in DESPERATE need).
    SO I brought along everything(everything that mattered, which is a lot) & because of the liquid limits, I had to check my bags with make up. I originally was only gonna check the liquids, but then I still had too many bags for the plane. I can downsize my luggage, but not my make up….yes I know I have a problem 😉 I wanted to send it in the mail but my boyfriend SOMEHOW convinced me I was ridiculously paranoid & that it would all be okay. Well, lucky for him he’s still in Los Angeles because I swear if the daggers in my eyes weren’t any bigger…let’s just say he’s glad he’s not here 😉
    I swear it was all I could think about on the plane, call it a gut instinct. So you can only imagine the angst I was feeling as I’m waiting for my bags to show up on the carousel & then NOTHING! The airlines didn’t have much sympathy, they didn’t even believe me when I said how much make up that had been lost & how much it was worth. They just said why would you spend so much money on cosmetics?!!! What a daring question for a true beauty addict!
    I really don’t think they were lost, I believe they were stolen by the people that screen your bags. My mom has a friend that works at the airlines & said that they do it all the time. All I can say is DAMN, I knew it!

    Now all I can do is sit here & imagine some girl rifling through my bags & breaking open my make up cases amazed at her new treasures 🙁 Damn her if the beauty gods don’t do it themselves! Seriously, this visual hurts as much as imagining my man with another woman…..did I mention I’m addicted to beauty?

    I have hair that goes down to my booty 😉 And one of the things that was in my bags is this special exotic oil that was made especially for my hair when I was in Morocco! I treat it like its the fountain of youth & the bottle is gorgeous as well. Priceless. Now its GONE along with all my other special hair care products & my Mason Pearson brushes 🙁 Thank God I didn’t bring all my skincare but I did lose my essentials that of course happen to be the most expensive. But honestly for me the real tragedy is my beloved make up!
    I basically owned the entire Nars line which is now GONE!!
    ALL my Shu is GONE! ALL my Mac GONE!! Smashbox GONE! Tarte GONE! Make up 4ever GONE! Laura Mercier GONE! Bobbi Brown GONE! Lancome GONE! Prescriptives GONE! Chanel GONE! Georgio Armani GONE! Estee Lauder GONE! Benefit GONE! B.E. GONE!! Urban Decay GONE! Stila GONE! Becca GONE! Cargo GONE! Scott Barnes GONE! Skii GONE! The list goes on….
    Seriously, I could cry. Actually I already have, but thats not the point. Now I don’t even know where to begin on rebuilding my collection that has taken soooo much time & money to create. And this happens to come at a time in my life where my wallet is faaaar from swelling. PLEASE allow me to have something to go home to….not just an empty vanity. I AM the #1 beauty addict, and I just lost every beauty product that I love & adore….please help!

  197. Shelly  |  7 April 2008 at 4:08 PM

    I’m turning 40 this year! It’s time to throw out all af my old dusty makeup and get a fresh new look. Winning this would sure help!

  198. Lola  |  7 April 2008 at 4:09 PM

    Please pick me. 2008 has not gotten off to the greatest start and this would be a lovely way to turn things around.

  199. Lauren L  |  7 April 2008 at 4:10 PM

    Happy Birthday!!! I’d love to win! Pick me! I’m having a rough time right now and this would be the perfect pick me up! Like retail therapy without the debt!

  200. Valerie  |  7 April 2008 at 4:11 PM

    I’m heading off to college soon, and I would love to stay stylish…and how am I supossed to do that when college burns a hole in my pocket? Please pick me! 😀

  201. Melissa  |  7 April 2008 at 4:13 PM


    Id like to win because a gal like me needs a bit of pampering!

  202. sarahPUFFY!  |  7 April 2008 at 4:14 PM

    First off, happy birthday.

    Second, as to why I’d want to win le’giveaway:

    As a teenage blogger, I always want something nice and high end to review. Sadly…I can’t buy it all – remember, I’m a teenager, and as much as I dream for the day that money will grow on trees, I know it’ll never happen – but hey, I can hope.

    I’d just like the chance to have a ton of products to share with people on my blog, and maybe even have the chance to share some of those products with friends, family, and my [very few!] readers. It would be a great experience.

  203. Hallee  |  7 April 2008 at 4:15 PM

    I should win because I am 34 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child, my limbs are starting to swell, and my other 2 kids are sick with strep! I need a fantastic pick me up like this prize!!!

  204. Amanda  |  7 April 2008 at 4:24 PM

    Oh, please pick me! I’m a poor college student with no job … I have absolutely no budget for pretty beauty items.

  205. Heather T  |  7 April 2008 at 4:25 PM

    I would love to win this fabulous prize because I just broke up with my boyfriend & nothing makes you feel better post breakup than a makeover!

  206. Pat Powers  |  7 April 2008 at 4:27 PM

    This would be an excellent combination Mother’s Day/Father’s Day gift for us. It would help offset the cost of us both buying way too many products already this year. 🙂

  207. Aisha  |  7 April 2008 at 4:30 PM

    Ohhh I hope I win! That would be so amazing! 🙂

  208. Cheryl Bamberger  |  7 April 2008 at 4:41 PM

    I think I have an addiction…. and I would love to win to have my fix !!! Happy 2nd anniversary! Remember you are fabulous.

  209. Keriann  |  7 April 2008 at 4:45 PM

    Oh I’m so excited! Happy happy birthday to one of my favorite wicked pleasures!!

    This blog always has new things to tempt me-so you basically have kept me employed so I can buy the stuff you tell me about!

  210. Naomi  |  7 April 2008 at 4:45 PM

    I’d love to win… as you can see from my blog, I tend to spend more time and $ on baby/kids stuff, so it would be great to have some, umm, LADY THINGS that have nothing to do with mommyness!

  211. Geri  |  7 April 2008 at 4:58 PM

    Who wouldn’t want to win any one of these nice things, let alone a huge package of them?!

  212. Susan Whittlesey  |  7 April 2008 at 5:03 PM

    Please pick me! I want to win this to give to my daughter, who is away at college and obsessed with all things beauty.

  213. Anne Young  |  7 April 2008 at 5:04 PM

    I would adore having all of these beautiful things.

  214. Robyn  |  7 April 2008 at 5:05 PM

    I want to win to try these products out!!

  215. Emily  |  7 April 2008 at 5:06 PM

    omg i’d love to win these! they’re all amazing. this would seriously make my life(:

  216. Christen Lee  |  7 April 2008 at 5:07 PM

    Hi there! i’d love to win this group of products – i’m a product junkie but i haven’t been able to indulge myself since last november when i lost my job. anything to get my mind off the joblessness would be tee-rific!

  217. Heather  |  7 April 2008 at 5:09 PM

    Why do I want to win? Who wouldn’t want to win this fabulous giveaway?! But here are 3 better reasons:

    My mom passed away, I just had a baby and have aged 10 years because of it, and in the fall I’m moving to a country where such beauty products are very, very scarce.

    (…so I really hope I win oh great and wise random number generator…)

  218. Mobina  |  7 April 2008 at 5:13 PM

    Hi ! Well first off, happy early birthday ! I love this contest you’re doing. My mom finally said that I can use makeup but I don’t know where to start. This would be a great way to get to know products and see which ones are my future loves. I love fashion and mixing around different prints and colors with clothes. I’m sure that if I have the makeup, I would be able to experiment with that as well. Well, thanks again for having this contest.
    Take care !

  219. Marti  |  7 April 2008 at 5:14 PM

    What better giveaway to win than this one? It’s the BEST! I hope to be the lucky one!

  220. Kelly  |  7 April 2008 at 5:14 PM

    I could use this so bad! I’m a poor graduate student! Please?

  221. Kate  |  7 April 2008 at 5:16 PM

    I would love to win this contest because I’m on a seriously limited budget and would never have the opportunity to try the vast majority of these products. Happy blogiversary!

  222. Andrea  |  7 April 2008 at 5:17 PM

    I’m going to be returning to work after being a stay at home mom for 9 years. I REALLY need some products to update my look.

  223. Quynh  |  7 April 2008 at 5:22 PM

    This would help me get over the stress of numerous school activities and to help me get ready for the trip to Viet Nam this summer, so that means saving more money to travel!

  224. Courtnie  |  7 April 2008 at 5:27 PM

    I would love to win this prize because.. well.. I never win anything! Not only that. I would never have to buy any cosmetic again, and most of my paycheck goes to that. I’m finally coming into my body as a woman and this would make me entirely too happy to win this!

  225. Brittany  |  7 April 2008 at 5:28 PM

    I just broke up with my fiance of three years this weekend. It was a difficult decision, but I realized that I needed more out of a partner than he was giving me. I’ve decided that I need some serious changes in my life. I’m aiming for an entire life makeover. I just joined the YMCA, so hopefully I can get into better shape and also make me more motivated and a happier person in general. All of this products would make me incredibly happy, plus it would help aid me in my life makeover.

  226. Sarah T.  |  7 April 2008 at 5:31 PM

    I would love to win this contest because so many of the items that are part of the prize are on my wish-list of items I have always wanted to try but could not afford (plus brands that are hard to find). Everything looks so amazing. I would be over the moon to win this!
    Good luck to all- 2 people are going to be sooo lucky- I hope I get to be one of them! 🙂

  227. Kyl  |  7 April 2008 at 5:35 PM

    Why do I want to win?

    Who doesn’t like to WIN?! Plus, I’ve never won anything ever in my life. Ever. This prize would definitely make up for all those other losses!!!

  228. Joanie  |  7 April 2008 at 5:37 PM

    I am a stay at home single mother to a 32 year old handicapped daughter (she has cerebral palsy- can’t walk or talk, communicate, etc.) and it’s a 24/7 job that I have done on my own for 32 years. I don’t have a lot time for myself but when I do, I wish that I could have stuff like this to take a minute to pamper and makeup myself with to just have some “me” time and to feel good about my appearance. I have also never ever won anything in my life and I hope I win something someday. This would be a delight to win.

  229. Amy A.  |  7 April 2008 at 5:39 PM

    What an amazing giveaway!!! Happy Anniversary TDO!

    I deserve to win because I’m a po’ grad student without the budget to shop like I’d need to in order to find the “right” products. 🙂

  230. Joyce Weinman  |  7 April 2008 at 5:47 PM

    I am new to the make-up blog world, but I love the daily obsession and makeup loves me!!! I would love to win some make up to try out and learn the newest trends. Thanks for the info!

  231. Samantha Michelle  |  7 April 2008 at 5:47 PM

    Happy Birthday! I am obsessed with your blog. I would LOVE to win this! So many of the items in the prize are exactly items I have been dying to try myself as well as other items would be perfect to give and share to my mom (who is turning 50 this month) and my little sister & some of my girlfriends- if I won I’d share the wealth! Oh I hope you choose me! Love ya!

  232. Jackie  |  7 April 2008 at 5:48 PM

    I should win because I’m a poor student and I need some new products to keep me looking good this summer! This summer will be my first summer as a legal adult (I just turned eighteen, woohoo!) and I’m going to be free at last! I want to enjoy the start of college as much as I can and I want to look good doing it!

  233. LA Blogger Gal  |  7 April 2008 at 5:49 PM

    Wow, what a killer prize package. I think if I were to win something like this I’d finally be able to try even half the products I keep reading about. Please oh please pick me!

  234. Kristina  |  7 April 2008 at 5:51 PM

    I’m a beauty product junkie in progress and have only recently discovered the joys of beauty blogs. It’s a good thing I never knew what I was missing… Well, I suppose it was good for my wallet. 🙂

  235. Merry  |  7 April 2008 at 5:54 PM

    I love reading about great beauty products and have a huge wish list for when I finish my law degree and have extra cash! Looking good on a budget can be a fun challenge, but sometimes its hard to with limited funds and studying cuts into shopping time. I’d love some new stuff so I can look my best when interviewing for jobs. I know a sincere smile goes a long way towards making you look great, but perfect hair and makeup helps! I’m way more confident when I’m wearing the perfect shade of lipstick! Plus the lavender bath stuff sounds like just what I need to get me through finals…please pick me?

  236. Jennifer Stewart  |  7 April 2008 at 6:04 PM

    Happy Anniversary TDO! You are one of my daily obsessions! I would love to win because I work at a small school where the benefits are NOT financial. It would be such a kick to be able to bless our wonderful teachers with little goodie baskets of these awesome products that they just wouldn’t be able to have otherwise!

  237. Rebecca  |  7 April 2008 at 6:05 PM

    I wish I could afford to buy all the cool stuff you tell about! It would be so fun to win some of it! I could be a fabulous fashonista instead of a tired mommy with peanut butter in her hair!

  238. megan  |  7 April 2008 at 6:05 PM

    Happy Birthday and congrats on 2 years! I would love to win because there is nothing better than pampering yourself with the fab products you are giving away!

  239. Morgan  |  7 April 2008 at 6:10 PM

    Happy Birthday TDO! After discovering you a couple months ago, this blog has quickly become a daily must-read!

    I would love to win this prize because it is an amazing assortment of beauty, skincare, hair products and apparel that would make my little heart jump for joy! Thanks for celebrating your anniversary with such a great giveaway!

  240. Meghan Olsonoski  |  7 April 2008 at 6:10 PM

    I want to win because this is a fantastic way to feed my beauty obsession that you help to fuel!

    Thank you guys for creating and managing an amazing blog full of great information! Happy Anniversary!

  241. julieta  |  7 April 2008 at 6:23 PM

    wow, amazing selection! i want to win because i am moving to paris and i need to dress the part 😉

  242. Liz  |  7 April 2008 at 6:34 PM

    Can I get bonus points by telling you I’m deploying in two months? Months and months on an aircraft carrier, desperately needing to feel pretty. Now, I probably won’t be able to use the bath salts on a ship, but perhaps in port… 🙂
    Happy birthday! Love the site.

  243. Erin Bedard  |  7 April 2008 at 6:39 PM

    Happy Birthday TDO!

    This site has become a must-read for me after discovering it about six months again. I’d love to win this prize because the products are fantastic, and many of them are already on my wish-list. I’m a grad student, and I have absolutely zero disposable income, so the chances of me being able to actually buy them are slim to nill.. *sigh*

    Anyway, congrats again on two fantastic years, and thanks for celebrating with such a great giveaway!!

  244. Laurie  |  7 April 2008 at 6:40 PM

    Happy 2nd b-day Daily O! This would be an awesome gift to win! I think I should win because I am a poor graduate student, which is much poorer than a college student and for longer, and am curently living in East Tenneessee, which it not the beauty capital that everyone claims it is, actually no one claims that, but still. So after one of you fabulous blogger introduces new products, I have to buy it online…when money allows. I want to win because it would be awesome to be “in” with the cool products rather than 4 years after when cooler things have come along. Please pick me! It would make my graduate school life so much better!

  245. Lisa Fischer  |  7 April 2008 at 6:53 PM

    Happy 2 year anniversary! I’m a new mom and would *love* to win this package – help me feel like a sexy lady again 🙂

  246. Mary Elizabeth  |  7 April 2008 at 6:55 PM

    Me me! I love beauty obsessions and reading your blog is a bright spot in the long day at the office!

  247. Michelle R.  |  7 April 2008 at 6:57 PM

    I would *love* to win because I am a total beauty product junkie and all my college student budget allows for is a new tube of cherry chapstick!

  248. Kara Gulbranson  |  7 April 2008 at 7:11 PM

    Because I’m going to be 36 in May and I’ve been in a funk!!! I’m tired of my make-up, the way i wear it, my hair, and i’m needing a serious pick me up. I been wearing my makeup the same for as long as I can remember! This would be a nice start… or try to go for a change!! 🙂

  249. Erin  |  7 April 2008 at 7:17 PM

    Because I’m a poor newlywed but I love fabulous things!

  250. Gauss  |  7 April 2008 at 7:17 PM

    Because it’s the first time I’m visiting your blog and I will become the most devoted reader if I win!!

  251. Cheryl Chan  |  7 April 2008 at 7:29 PM

    Congrats, you guys! 🙂

    I think I should win this because it would be absolutely thrilling to be able to have some products to use for prom!

  252. Billy  |  7 April 2008 at 7:35 PM

    Because as a beauty blogger, it’s really your obligation to nurture a young girl’s love for cosmetics.

    And a very warm happy birthday. You guys are fantastic.

  253. Melissa Hagadorn  |  7 April 2008 at 7:36 PM

    Happy birthday!

    I’d love to win so I could try some new products I may not have considered purchasing otherwise, and of course because I’m an absolute product junkie!

  254. Bobbie  |  7 April 2008 at 7:39 PM

    Happy, happy birthday!

    I’m about to graduate from graduate school… which means it is time to pay back all of my student loans… AND enter the “real world”… which means I will be needing beauty products at the very time I should be cutting back… yikes!

    That and I would just have soooo much fun playing with all of those luscious items. Better than any Christmas I’ve ever experienced, I’d wager.

  255. Holly  |  7 April 2008 at 7:42 PM

    Please pick me! I have been reading this blog since right around the time it started (has it really been two years??). It’s always been a nice get away from school stuff when I need a small break. I really am in need of some pampering – I’m getting ready to take my GREs, apply to grad school, finish up this semester (one more to go after this!), finals are coming up in three weeks, a test tomorrow, a paper due on Thursday, working 30 hours a week, putting in about 10 hours a week at a crisis center (volunteer gig), plus planning my wedding on June 14. My aunt was recently admitted to the hospital (diabetes related, she’ll be okay), and neither of my parents are going to attend my wedding (I live in Ohio and am having a “planned elopement” in Oregon).

  256. Michelle  |  7 April 2008 at 7:43 PM

    Wow, happy birthday! How awesome of you to give a birthday present to your readers instead of the other way around. I think I should get this gift because as a poor college student, I can’t afford to indulge my fanciful, girly side often. I’d definitely do these products justice, and enjoy them greatly!

  257. Heidi  |  7 April 2008 at 7:47 PM

    Please pick me!! I love all the products you’ve listed, but can’t afford them all! I’m a poor college students about to graduate with no job… it would really brighten my year up! =)

  258. Sarah  |  7 April 2008 at 7:48 PM

    I would love to win because I love to keep up with all things beauty but I’m not able to because I’m a poor college student.

  259. Diana A  |  7 April 2008 at 7:54 PM

    Happy Birthday!

    I would love to win because I am a new makeup junkie with the limited income of a college student (ie nada 🙂 ) and would love this to jumpstart my makeup collection.

  260. Elizabeth  |  7 April 2008 at 8:00 PM

    happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you … this is the best giveaway EVER. you guys rock.

  261. Teresa  |  7 April 2008 at 8:13 PM

    I read this blog every day! I love trying new products but hate breaking the bank to do so. This would be so awesome.

  262. Nicki Gray  |  7 April 2008 at 8:19 PM

    I would love to win because I live far, far away in little old New Zealand (home of Lord of the Rings). I don’t have access to special effects makeup like the movie crews, but would love some of the special effects I could create with your giveaway products!
    As for the US shipping address? My fab friend lives in New York and she would happily receive my parcel (for a small percentage of the products of course!!)
    Please pick me – most of the products aren’t even available over here, honestly, it’s like living in the Dark Ages …..

  263. sdpfeiffy  |  7 April 2008 at 8:20 PM

    Happy Birthday 🙂 I’d love to win because, wow, what a great gift bag 🙂

  264. katie s.  |  7 April 2008 at 8:23 PM

    Happy birthday TDO! keep up the great work!

  265. Jenna  |  7 April 2008 at 8:25 PM

    pick me! i live in the middle of a cornfield and the closest Sephora is over 3 hours away! I SERIOUSLY NEED THIS. i read your blog everyday, so good. pick me!

  266. Elizabeth  |  7 April 2008 at 8:27 PM

    Happy Birthday TDO!! Please pick me, I’m a stressed out, broke law student who is obsessed with anything having to do with makeup/beauty!!!

  267. Isadore  |  7 April 2008 at 8:32 PM

    I would love to win because I’ve not tried a one of these products. Pure virginal territory. I adore your blog and will continue to do so whether I win or not. Happy Birthday

  268. Stef  |  7 April 2008 at 8:33 PM

    I love this blog and read it everyday. I literally clicked on every single one of the prizes and of course now I am dying to win! I would love to get lucky but good luck to everyone!

  269. Liz  |  7 April 2008 at 8:35 PM

    Oh please pick me. I’ve had such a stressful year with the death of my mom, moving, and starting at a new school. Nothing says pick-me-upper as much as all of this fun stuff! Thanks TDO, and Happy Birthday!

  270. Nicole  |  7 April 2008 at 8:36 PM

    HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY TDO!!!! Wow everything you are giving away is amazing! Please pick me, I’d put all of this stuff to good use, I promise 😉

  271. Stephanie  |  7 April 2008 at 8:39 PM

    No pick me! I have *law school* finals – even worse than normal ones. Plus, I’m living off government school loans, meaning I can’t splurge on make up. (Although I do spend a good bit on polish.) : P

  272. Alexandra  |  7 April 2008 at 8:40 PM

    I live in a small town in central Wisconsin and I’d love to spread beauty to a state that could do much better to improve their public appearance. That means, If I win, I will make Wisconsin a prettier place to live by sharing these great products!



  273. Jean  |  7 April 2008 at 8:49 PM

    All these goodies would make a rough semester much easier to deal with!

  274. Lauren D  |  7 April 2008 at 9:08 PM

    Happy birthday TDO! I am so glad I stumbled across you a year ago and thank you so much for inspiring all of us to be that much more fabulous! I don’t have a sob story but I would love love love to have even a few things off that list – I’ll share I promise! 🙂

  275. Annie  |  7 April 2008 at 9:22 PM

    oh god, I spend most of my income on rent. how I could use some new products in my LIFE!

  276. Alex  |  7 April 2008 at 9:23 PM

    Happy Birthday!!! What an amazing giveaway– I want to win because I can’t find a lot of these fabulous brands in Virginia and I can’t afford this stuff. Also you guys rock!
    xxx Alex

  277. Janet  |  7 April 2008 at 9:25 PM

    I have no style. I need some. This would help!

  278. Roberta  |  7 April 2008 at 9:26 PM

    WOW! Birthy Hap-day! 😉

    What a way to discover some new colors that would work for me! Picking me would prove that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!

  279. Ruth Alexander  |  7 April 2008 at 9:26 PM

    I have thrown everything in my sink vanity out and want only the best back in there~and it’s my birthday too!!

  280. Allie  |  7 April 2008 at 9:31 PM

    Have a lovely, lovely birthday. I would love to win such gorgeous beauty give aways, because I love the art of the beauty regimen. From skincare to haircare, from cosmetics to perfume, from aromatic baths to mud wraps…It’s alchemy. It’s mystery. And to me, it’s magic. Beauty, undoubtedly, comes from within; but, a little cream, a dab of blush, a hint of tint, and sharp line of kohl on the eyes can never hurt.

  281. Alexa H.  |  7 April 2008 at 9:39 PM

    This is too amazing. I’d love to win, because I too am a poor college student.. but these products all sound great and really… who wouldn’t want to try them all? We can dream! 🙂

  282. Tam Pham  |  7 April 2008 at 9:42 PM

    I should win because I am a makeup whore!!!

  283. Irem  |  7 April 2008 at 9:46 PM

    Let’s see: I am a first time mom to an 8-week-old, have neither the time nor the money to spend on girly goodies. Looks like a very good to candidate to receive one of the packs 🙂

  284. Lynna  |  7 April 2008 at 9:48 PM

    This prize package is AMAZING. I would love to win because I am addicted to all things cosmetics.. including reading blogs about them, especially this one. This would be great to plump up starting makeup collection!

  285. Hanna  |  7 April 2008 at 9:53 PM

    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday dear TDO
    Happy birthday to you!

    I’d (almost) die if I won one of the packages..
    Alas, I am a poor student who recently discovered the joys of makeup and needs to feed this obsession!
    Please please pretty please, with a cherry on top, pick me 🙂

    ps: happy birthday!

  286. carolyn  |  7 April 2008 at 10:06 PM

    i’m a law student that has no time for pampering. this would be a wonderful treat post-finals!

  287. Jenny  |  7 April 2008 at 10:06 PM

    I want to win because I can’t work next year due to a school commitment…and this prize would probably get me through the year as far as beauty products go!

  288. jwalk  |  7 April 2008 at 10:17 PM

    What can I say? This is truly a FREE country.
    I’d love to get my hands on some of the brands/products that I’ve been drooling over for a while but never had a chance to try. ^^

  289. saidahb  |  7 April 2008 at 10:36 PM

    wowie zowie!
    congrats and happy second, tdo!
    I’d love to win the prize out of the sheer adventure– trying new products, reaffirming the love affair with old favorites, and sharing/introducing new things to friends and loved ones… i would have an absolute ball!

  290. Laurel  |  7 April 2008 at 10:37 PM

    Happy Birthday!! Like everyone else in the world, i think free stuff is the greatest thing ever. But…how many times do you get to say “I won a giveaway…and I actually love everything in it!” This would be an amazing giveaway that every girl can appreciate.

  291. ada  |  7 April 2008 at 10:54 PM

    Congrats on two years! I want to win because I love trying out new things!

  292. Laura Taylor  |  7 April 2008 at 10:55 PM

    Please pick me. I’ve fallen and I can’t get up … BUT … I’m pretty sure over 3 thousand dollars worth of pampering products could revive me!

  293. Laura Taylor  |  7 April 2008 at 10:56 PM

    See? I can’t even remember my own email! That’s how much I need pampering!!

  294. Sarah McQ  |  7 April 2008 at 11:24 PM


    I think I have a pretty good reason 🙂 In May I will be seeing my boyfriend for the first time in 11 months!! It has almost been a year that he has been deployed with the USMC and needless to say I would really like to look and feel my best. I think the abundance of products would definitely help with that!

  295. Lan Tran  |  8 April 2008 at 12:01 AM

    Happy birthday indeed!

    Please pick me! I’m a college student ready to turn the page to a new chapter in her life…and what better way than a personal makeover?

    (The best way to face nasty organic chemistry tests is to put on a fabulous face!)

  296. Seri L.  |  8 April 2008 at 12:08 AM

    Please pick me! I’m unemployed and struggling to find a way to not skimp on my skin care!

  297. tricia c  |  8 April 2008 at 12:15 AM

    i just graduated a month ago with my B.A in art/fashion merchandising, and this would really be a great graduation present for me.hope i win yay!

  298. Sun Yi  |  8 April 2008 at 12:46 AM

    OOO, I hope to win this for my mom. In time for Mother’s day!

  299. hazel  |  8 April 2008 at 1:01 AM

    I would love to be the winner, I need to be the winner! I have been working so hard running my own business (handpainted whimsies) and raising my 2 little girls that I haven’t made time for me. I believe LETTING GO has taken on new meaning! I need some inspiration to take a little time for myself each day, this would be it!

  300. Jessica  |  8 April 2008 at 1:04 AM

    Please pick me because my life is so complicated right now all I need is a little pampering to make it better. 🙂

  301. viridiana  |  8 April 2008 at 1:17 AM

  302. autumn-otong akpan  |  8 April 2008 at 1:20 AM

    why do I want to win..why wouldn’t I? Look at all the stuff that is to be won! I’d like to win because I haven’t tried alot of the products that are in the package. Also, it would be a great way for me to start off my makeover that I have been putting off for the past three months.

  303. crlsweetie912  |  8 April 2008 at 2:52 AM

    Single mom needs all the help she can get!

  304. Kristina  |  8 April 2008 at 3:00 AM

    Happy 2nd Birthday. I would love to win because i’m obsessed with trying new products and this basket would keep me occupied for quite some time.

  305. adrian  |  8 April 2008 at 4:20 AM

    Congratulations & Happy Birthday. Evebn though I of course wantt to win everything, I would love the blow out & deep conditioning treatment from Warren Tricomi. I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, & had 2 surgeries in 3 weeks. Before or after the Cheno, I would love to treat my hair & soul.

  306. adrian  |  8 April 2008 at 4:20 AM

    Congratulations & Happy Birthday. Evebn though I of course wantt to win everything, I would love the blow out & deep conditioning treatment from Warren Tricomi. I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, & had 2 surgeries in 3 weeks. Before or after the Chemo, I would love to treat my hair & soul.

  307. S  |  8 April 2008 at 4:29 AM

    2 years later and I am still in love… This gift bag would be the perfect way for The Daily Obsession to secure a well-deserved place in my heart. 🙂

  308. Polly  |  8 April 2008 at 5:07 AM

    Great giveaway.

    You might want to consider me because I”m pretty sure that I”m the only reader who milks a cow twice a day. My hands need something prettier than Bag Balm.

  309. Nicole  |  8 April 2008 at 5:11 AM

    Oh, please! Pick me! I really want to win because I’m a stay-at-home mom of 3 girls, and almost all of my spare time and cash goes toward them. What a treat to have some things just for me!! I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

  310. Jaime  |  8 April 2008 at 5:19 AM

    It’s a long shot, but I wanted to enter anyway. If you’re ever going to win the lottery, you’ve got to buy a ticket, right? 🙂 Happy Birthday TDO, and thanks for sponsoring a birthday giveaway!

  311. Alison  |  8 April 2008 at 5:55 AM

    I would absolutely LOVE to win this! I am in the process of reinventing my life and myself, and this would be a fabulous way to do that!!!
    Here’s hoping….. :):):)

  312. Laina  |  8 April 2008 at 6:06 AM

    I would love to win this. I am a newly divorced mother of 4 who loves makeup and beautiful things. Unfortunately, I can’t afford much of this stuff.
    The list is awe-inspiring!

  313. Deirdre  |  8 April 2008 at 6:09 AM

    I would love to win this prize, and then share it with my little sister. She will be going away to college in the fall and doesn’t know which make-up is right for her, let alone how to apply it.

    I would love to receive this prize and help her create an easy day look to wear on campus.

    Personally, the prize could also take me out of the rut that I have been in lately.

    Thanks for considering me.

  314. Casie  |  8 April 2008 at 6:16 AM

    Happy Birthday!! I love your blog and I visit all the time. I think that this would be such a fabulous wedding gift for
    me, as I am planning on doing my own hair and makeup. 🙂
    Thank you for the great giveaway.

  315. Laura  |  8 April 2008 at 6:29 AM

    Happy Birthday! I am product obsessed and would die to win this! (Yes, I have issues.)

  316. Angie  |  8 April 2008 at 6:32 AM

    Happy Birthday! Wow, what an amazing giveaway, thank you so much for sharing the blog’s birthday in such an incredible way!

    I’d love to be picked as the winner of this fabulous package, I’ve been a beauty junkie for a long long time, however working in the non-profit industry with my teenie salary makes large beauty splurges nearly an impossible thing… this package would be a dream come true!

    Thanks again!

  317. Robin  |  8 April 2008 at 6:34 AM

    Who wouldn’t want to win? This is a great prize! Good Luck everyone. 🙂

  319. Esther  |  8 April 2008 at 6:38 AM

    This would be a fabulous gift to share with my bridesmaids! They’ve been doing so much to help me plan my wedding, and I don’t have the money to show them my appreciation. It would be so nice to have such a great gift to give them!

  320. Courtney  |  8 April 2008 at 6:41 AM

    I love this site and I would love a chance to try all these amazing products on my poor graduate student’s budget! Plus, my husband couldn’t get mad if it was all free! 🙂

  321. Erin Collins  |  8 April 2008 at 7:18 AM

    I would LOVE to win so that I could share this with my mom! She is so busy at work right now and my dad has been in the hospital so this would really cheer her up!!!

  322. kara  |  8 April 2008 at 7:26 AM

    Pick me pick me. I don’t currently own any makeup. So I need some. Pick me.

  323. Becky E  |  8 April 2008 at 7:35 AM

    Happy Anniversary! My favorite things in the world next to red wine are beauty products and especially FREE ones! I’m a girly-girl in the middle of rural Wyoming trying to bring up my daughter the same way. If I win I’ll spread the girly-girl-ness throughout this vast wasteland of beauty products!

  324. Steph  |  8 April 2008 at 7:51 AM

    Happy 2nd Anniversary! Thanks for giving us two years of fabulous reading. Good luck to everyone!
    I can’t think of any good reason except beauty products are obessively addictive! xoxo Steph

  325. meg jones  |  8 April 2008 at 7:53 AM

    happy birthday to a wonderful and inspiring blog!

    as someone who works in the beauty industry i would love to win a prize like this – i’ve recently been considering starting a blog of my own, much in the style of this one, beauty addict and blogdorf goodman. a prize like this would really give me somewhere to start.

    but either way, congratulations on your anniversary! this blog is always well-written and informative, and it’s been a pleasure reading it these last couple of years! well done!

  326. Kim  |  8 April 2008 at 8:03 AM

    Great site, just came here from make-up loves me. Happy Birthday. You are offering an amazing package with many products that I have been wanting to try. Why should I win? I love to look my best and I’m always looking for some way to do it!

  327. willikat  |  8 April 2008 at 8:13 AM

    I would love to win because I’m a beauty junkie, but restricted on spending since I just lost my job! I promise I’d make good use of it all! 🙂

  328. Lbrinkley  |  8 April 2008 at 8:16 AM

    OMG, I want to win I NEED to win because I am a product whore and, this will give me so many more product to whore around with, lol!!!

  329. Samantha Walker  |  8 April 2008 at 8:20 AM

    I want to win because I have spent the last 7 years living on a dairy farm in the middle of nowhere, taking care of my elderly parents, and am finally moving back to civilization — with nothing but chapstick and some hay in my hair….help!!

  330. Jessica TF  |  8 April 2008 at 8:22 AM

    Spring cleaning of body, mind and soul. I just started a body boot camp class and now I’m ready to enjoy all these goodies to help me work on everything else!

  331. Carol  |  8 April 2008 at 8:27 AM

    These products would truly validate my obsession with skin care, makeup and hair goodies. Plus, my husband would be forced to give up his bathroom drawer! 🙂

  332. Detti  |  8 April 2008 at 8:27 AM

    After three kids I’m still young and skinny, but I still need some help to look my best.

  333. Roselyn  |  8 April 2008 at 8:31 AM

    I simply want to win!!! Happy birthday guys!

  334. Jenny S  |  8 April 2008 at 8:39 AM

    I would love to win because although I’m obsessed with beauty and fashion, I’m still not sure how to put myself together so this would be a great gift for me to experiment with great beauty products!

    Congrats on your two year mark! Much continued success.

  335. Erica  |  8 April 2008 at 8:44 AM

    My adopted dog just cost me tons in unexpected medical bills, and I have no spending money for a while….this will help me out!!!

  336. Valerie  |  8 April 2008 at 8:59 AM

    Happy Birthday! I’m sure there are many deserving people who have entered. I don’t envy your job in selecting just two. I have not been able to buy beauty products in a while, so this would be a wonderful pick me up! Thank you.

  337. Ro  |  8 April 2008 at 9:01 AM

    Oh my goodness … this is like a birthday, Christmas and surprise wish come true! What a wonderful giveaway and how sweet of you to share your anniversary with us all. Happy Anniversary!

  338. Min  |  8 April 2008 at 9:03 AM

    I am a product fiend and a package like this makes me lust lustfully.

  339. Svitlana  |  8 April 2008 at 9:10 AM

    I want to win, because I want to save the word! Beauty will save it according to Dostoyevsky. 😉

  340. Carol Q  |  8 April 2008 at 9:25 AM

    Happy Birthday! I’m just as obsessed as you are with these products but I can’t afford them on a college student’s budget.

  341. lindsey p  |  8 April 2008 at 9:31 AM

    This would make my day!

  342. Monica  |  8 April 2008 at 9:32 AM

    As a wife, full-time employee, and mother of a 3-year-old son, I could really use some pampering! Please pick me! =)

  343. Kelly Samuels  |  8 April 2008 at 9:35 AM

    I’m a budding beauty addict and clothes horse and I really like reading your blog for tips and to find out what is current. Please pick me because I’m new to this and the package would help to induct me into the beauty/shopping kingdom!

  346. Allie  |  8 April 2008 at 9:50 AM

    Plus, I really love the Daily Obsession and so do all of my friends!!! Feed my addiction!

    <3 Allie

  347. Cindi  |  8 April 2008 at 10:04 AM

  349. Elaine Solochier  |  8 April 2008 at 10:09 AM

    Happy Birthday!!!!
    I would LOVE to win this because I have 3 kids, and I can’t afford to buy myself such wonderful make-up. Thanks.

  350. Beth  |  8 April 2008 at 10:11 AM

    ….thats extreme begging, but makeup is my first love, i cant help it!

  351. kavita  |  8 April 2008 at 10:11 AM

    this would be the perfect pick me up present after being sick with the flu all week!

  352. mariana  |  8 April 2008 at 10:29 AM

    i just found out my job will not be renewed for next year and i am not sure when i will be able to afford nice products again.


  353. clare stella  |  8 April 2008 at 10:44 AM

    Happy Anniversary, good people! I would be so thrilled with this generous and wonderful selection of products. I love reading this blog and learning about new products that make life exciting and fun. As a Substance Abuse Counselor I don’t have a lot of time and money to spend on high-quality beauty products so receiving this gift basket would be a perfect chance to try all kinds of new stuff. Thanks for allowing me to enter this contest.

  354. Christina H  |  8 April 2008 at 10:52 AM

    Congrats! I’ve been a beauty junkie for 20 years and I’m always in search of the next “holy grail” product. I’m thinking that the gift basket could contain several that I might not know existed otherwise. Imagine all the poor cosmetics not being able to reach their full potential by being enjoyed by a seasoned junkie! A travesty, you must agree.

  355. Katy Morris  |  8 April 2008 at 10:55 AM

    Wow! Happy Anniversary TDO!

    This is my tenth wedding anniversary year, as well. What better way to continue wooing my husband than with a well-deserved beauty overhaul!

    This kit just has everything…just like TDO!


  356. Marley  |  8 April 2008 at 11:21 AM

    I saw this giveaway and decided that for the first time in my life, this is a contest I can’t resist entering because the reward is just too great to pass up!! I’m a college student in the military and sharing these goodies with all the girls in my company will help us feel like women again when we always have to wear our hair up and wear boy-ish uniforms 🙁 You would make 10 girls very very happy if we won!

  357. Tracey B  |  8 April 2008 at 11:24 AM

    wow…I would definitely love to win those items. My reasons for wanting to win…I am turning forty in May!!! *arrghhh* I want to feel alive and refreshed again and those products would certainly help with that 🙂 I am also celebrating my 10th year wedding anniversary in April – it is a banner year for me.

  358. Andrea Ch  |  8 April 2008 at 11:34 AM

    I would love to win! Reason: Makeup is expensive, and I’m just now learning to use everything. It would be awesome to have these things to experiment with!

  359. Candy  |  8 April 2008 at 11:36 AM

    Happy Birthday!

    I would love to have the chance to try out all these TDO certified products. I rarely have time for myself and don’t have the resources to indulge since I’m putting myself through graduate school. Help a girl out 🙂

  360. Colleen R  |  8 April 2008 at 11:38 AM

    Happy 2nd Birthday!

    I used to be a huge fanatic of beauty and makeup trends each season. I’ve had to forgo many of my “extras” once we were faced with infertility. It’s an expensive venture as many of the gals on this site can probably relate to. It would be great to have a chance to indulge in such an awesome package you’ve put together. I have many other fellow wanna-be-mommie friends who I would love to share so many of these items. Some of which might help along in the process… *smile*

    Good luck to everyone!

  361. Sara  |  8 April 2008 at 11:45 AM

    Happy Anniversary!

    Please pick me. I’m getting married in less than two months, and I could use lots of fun new products to try out for the big day. Plus, I have a sneaking suspicion that my future husband plans to put the kabash on my beaty product consumption once he’s got me legally cornered, so to speak. Hehehe. But I love him anyway!

  362. Tina  |  8 April 2008 at 11:58 AM

    I enjoy reading the fashion bits on this post and I would love to win because I am a beauty product junkie and May 1st is my 43rd birthday.

  363. Alli  |  8 April 2008 at 12:00 PM

    All of these amazing products would help this newlywed look beautiful for her husband.

    Happy happy birthday!

  364. kim koenck  |  8 April 2008 at 12:02 PM

    Happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear TDOoooooooo, happy birthday to Youuuuuuuu! I want to win for dos reasons; 1) I just graduated from college and the harsh reality of student loans are putting a kink into my love of trying/obtaining new products and 2) I love trying new products and being brutally honest about them to anyone who’ll listen/read. XOXOXO, Great job on making it to two. Kim

  365. Veronica C.  |  8 April 2008 at 12:06 PM

    I am a self admitted makeup junkie. I desperately need to have my makeup fix. This, of course, will definitely help.

  366. Lynn P  |  8 April 2008 at 12:15 PM

    Winning your contest would be a perfect way to start spring!

  367. Renee  |  8 April 2008 at 12:15 PM

    I want to win because I want the thrill of reading my name as the winner,anxiously waiting for the delivery and finally opening all the goodies and feeling like I did as a child at Christmas.

  368. Tiffany  |  8 April 2008 at 12:23 PM

    Awesome! Happy Birthday! I would love to win this, I can never get enough of beauty products.

  369. Erin  |  8 April 2008 at 12:23 PM

    I want this because I’ve never even heard of half of these brands and I need to branch out from Estee Lauder and Jane (drugstore love affair)!

  370. joann  |  8 April 2008 at 12:28 PM

    Happy 2nd birthday ! I have so many reasons for wanting to win one of these very generous packages,my biggest reason is that I don’t have the money to buy all of those terrific products and I’d really love to have them !

  371. Angeline  |  8 April 2008 at 1:02 PM

    I would absolutely love to win this! I am a very hard-working nursing student who does school full-time and works at a bar full-time. I literally have no time (or money) to really splurge and pamper myself. Reading beauty blogs is the little pampering thing I do for myself everyday! I know in a year when I’m an RN, I can afford these things, but right now I would love a teensy tiny break and have some fun, new products to make me look beautiful!

  372. Rachel Daily  |  8 April 2008 at 1:09 PM

    ~*~*Happy birthday!!!*~*~

    If I won this I may just die! Being a college student I have no money whatsoever for the necessities much less for anything related to beauty and it breaks my heart because I am a product and fashion junkie! I would love love love to win this amazing pack and just reading the products made me so extremely excited.

    I hope I win! Thanks for the great giveaway I can’t wait for the announcement!


  373. Liz  |  8 April 2008 at 1:20 PM

    Fun, fun, fun! I’m getting married and these products would be wonderful to give out in goody bags to my sisters, bridesmaids, lovely friends, etc. at my upcoming shower. Should I win, I promise that I won’t just hoard all the fabulousness for myself! =)

  374. Lauren  |  8 April 2008 at 1:29 PM

    Id love to win so I can review and try these products for my own obsession and it will keep me blogging, reviewing, and using products for my viewers on Youtube and readers on my small youtube related blog. This is my big obsession and I would be so ecstatic to win! Christmas x $3,200!! Congratulations to the two year anniversary!

  375. Greta Thurfjell  |  8 April 2008 at 1:29 PM

    Awww. This made me so happy until I realised I have to move to USA before the 13th to win. I’m a 14 year old who lives in Sweden and have this teeeeeny amount of cash which means I can buy like one nail polish and then I’m broke. If I would win this, I would probably die. And then I would resurrect and dance around and tell all of my friends that I won! I won! I won! And then I would teeeeeest, test until my skin was drenched in beauty.
    Unfortunately, this seems like just a dream as I live in ****** Sweden. Well well, we don’t get much fun up here, so it’s worth a try…

    Lots of kisses to you, my fellow beauty nerds!

    (P.S. My cousin lives in the US and maybe maybe maybe she can receive the package and then send it to me if I happen to be the winner…)

  376. Louisa  |  8 April 2008 at 1:41 PM

    It sounds absolutely amazingly fantastic. I would love to win and try all the products!

  377. Claire D  |  8 April 2008 at 1:47 PM

    I want to win because I could never afford all of that on my own! I would love to try and use all the products.

  378. Wendy C  |  8 April 2008 at 2:01 PM

    TDO, how do we love you??!! And do you ever love us! Truly Divine and Over-the Top is the only way to describe this. I would love to win because I just turned 41, have lost 43 pounds, I like who I am and have discovered that the better I treat myself, the better I am to others. Beauty products make you feel and look amazing! Congrats on your 2nd anniversary, TDO! xoxoxoxoxox

  379. Jennifer Nobriga  |  8 April 2008 at 2:21 PM

    Ok…seriously…I would wet myself if I won this…really.

    Anyway, Happy Anniversary to a blog that I have to read everyday!

  380. Emily  |  8 April 2008 at 2:32 PM

    I can’t afford my rock n roll lifestyle, but this could help get me there!

  381. Judy  |  8 April 2008 at 2:32 PM

    Congratulations and Happy Anniversary! You always pick the best jewelry!

  382. beautypopstar  |  8 April 2008 at 2:49 PM

    Aaah, I have no US shipping address… but I’s love to win! maybe next time…

  383. honey  |  8 April 2008 at 2:56 PM

    happy anniversary!

  384. Heather Giustino  |  8 April 2008 at 2:59 PM

    OMG, *please* randomly pick me!! : ) I would love to win, because having a baby who is just getting over being sick, and a hubby who is just getting over being sick I’m not allowed to get sick. And even though I know that I am, this fabulous prize would definitely help me feel a lot better! What an awesome giveaway!!

  385. nazanin fallahi  |  8 April 2008 at 3:15 PM

    ooooh. pick me, pick me, pick me please.
    i’m so product obsessed and never have enough. OK, I don’t NEED any of that stuff, but I’d really appreciate it. and it would seriously make my month.

  386. Chris  |  8 April 2008 at 3:24 PM

    Because my wife would be REALLY excited about all this stuff, and she loves this website!

  387. Rachel  |  8 April 2008 at 3:37 PM

    pick me. because i never win anything.

  388. BeckyL  |  8 April 2008 at 3:46 PM

    I want to win because I haven’t tried ANY of these products before and I’m not in the best financial situation! I’m very curious as to these products and hope that I can win!

  389. Kirsten  |  8 April 2008 at 3:51 PM

    I want to win because nothing is more fun than experimenting with new looks and also because i love love TDO.

  390. Becky  |  8 April 2008 at 3:51 PM

    I’m going to be graduating college at the end of May and it would be amazing to go into the “real” world with so much awesome stuff!!

    Happy birthday! 🙂

  391. Abigail  |  8 April 2008 at 3:52 PM

    I want to win because I’ve never won anything and I really want to try out these products!

  392. Bobbie  |  8 April 2008 at 3:54 PM

    Happy anniversary guys! woo hoo!

    I want to win because I LOVE everything beauty and haven’t tried any of these products yet.

  393. Kathryne  |  8 April 2008 at 4:11 PM

    Happy early birthday!

    Wow! What an amazing prize package.. I would LOVE to win this because I am desparately in need of some new beauty products to fill my makeup bag! I think I need to experience different makeup brands too. I”m basically stuck in a rut. Help me!!

  394. Mary Ann  |  8 April 2008 at 4:36 PM

    Happy Anniversary!

    I’d love to win this! I’m trying so hard to learn makeup trends and how to look my best but I don’t have any of the right products. I’m a beauty newb! My beauty collection is meager and no matter what I do I still feel like I don’t look my best – this would help me on my path to finally looking gorgeous!

  395. Lisa Marie  |  8 April 2008 at 4:36 PM

    I’d consider myself really lucky and blessed if I won this, simply because I’m a girl who, for the summer, is really motivated to lose weight and get in shape. I was was born with a movement disorder, CP, and it’d be in my best interest to lose a few pounds (okay…a lot more than a few!) to not only feel better about my looks as a person, but to feel good about what I can do physically instead of what I can’t do. Plus, it’d be kind of cool coming back after the break looking really pretty to start of my junior year of college! 🙂 I know they say that beauty is truth and truth is beauty, and I hope that, if my goals are in indication of the happiness that’ll await me when I reach them, this will just make me feel even more greatful for the journey that awaits me!
    Thank you for reading this!

  396. Heather  |  8 April 2008 at 4:36 PM

    I can’t believe it has been two years! Congrats! I have been reading your blog for about a year and half now and always love what you have to say. As a med student I would cherish this gift package. Love the blog and here’s to many more years!

  397. Karina  |  8 April 2008 at 5:18 PM

    I should win because I am graduationg high school this june and will be entering university going into fashion merchandising. This would be great to start me off as the most fabulous freshman at school.

    Happy Birthday, by the way!!

  398. Sifat  |  8 April 2008 at 5:40 PM

    My sister, who is an engineering student like me, once jokingly said that she pays attention to fashion because she doesn’t have to look like an engineer, even if she is one. I’d love to win because after a rough and hectic semester with little time to take care of myself, I think I’m at risk for what my sister poked fun of: looking like the average cartoonishly unfashionable engineer.

  399. Sharon  |  8 April 2008 at 6:12 PM

    Congratulations on two years!
    I love your blog and try to read it everyday!
    Several items in your giveaway are
    MY current obsessions…I am sure someone very deserving will receive it!

    Keep up the great blog!!

  400. Neon  |  8 April 2008 at 6:28 PM

    Because I would share!

  401. Michelle Choy  |  8 April 2008 at 6:50 PM

    I want to win because I have never, ever won any kind of giveaway so awesome like this one
    and I want to pamper not only myself.. but my MOM whom rarely uses makeup!

    Thank you, thanks, Gracias, thank you! !

  402. Angel Hu  |  8 April 2008 at 7:20 PM

    Because I can never have enough.

  403. Elizabeth M  |  8 April 2008 at 7:28 PM

    I love love to win this because I always want to try new products but never know what to buy!

  404. Jenny  |  8 April 2008 at 7:30 PM

    Please pick me! I’m moving to NYC next month and I am in desperate need of a “look update!”

    Please! And HELP!

  405. joyce  |  8 April 2008 at 7:32 PM

    because i want to be as stylish as TDO.

    happy birthday!

  406. Anastasia  |  8 April 2008 at 7:32 PM

    I would be thrilled to win because I have never used any of those products before! 😀 I would LOVE to finally be able to try them out 😀

  407. Alison Lazareck  |  8 April 2008 at 8:36 PM

    Does this come with a brown paper bag to hyperventilate into? I think my breathing might stop with elation at winning….

  408. Madelin H  |  8 April 2008 at 8:45 PM

    As a stay at home mom, its fun when I get the chance to pamper myself and play with new products.

  409. Jessica S.  |  8 April 2008 at 9:04 PM

    This would be so awesome to win, I am a nanny so I dont get to dress up and feel pretty that often at work but when I go out I party it up!

  410. willa  |  8 April 2008 at 9:08 PM

    I am a college student and couldn’t possibly afford all the lovely products I read about and lust after in your blog!

  411. Joan Cimi  |  8 April 2008 at 9:15 PM

    Who wouldn’t want to win all that loot!!!

  412. Dana  |  8 April 2008 at 9:30 PM

    Wow, this stuff looks decadent and beautiful. I should win this prize because I currently go to college in Baltimore and don’t have the means to treat myself to lovely things like sea soap and lavender body oil. I can just see it…. after a hard day of 5 hours of class, my very own recoup spa night; incredible.

  413. carol woroniec  |  8 April 2008 at 9:41 PM

    Love to experiment and try new things and beauty products are my passion. Always looking for something better than the best. Happy B’day and may the most deserving gal win!

  414. literaturegirl  |  8 April 2008 at 9:46 PM

    I would absolutely adore to win this prize because this year has been monstrously tough for me. My grandfather, my great grandmother, and my beloved dad all died in the space of 5 months. I also was rejected from the college of my dreams. I’ve sort of sunk into a depression and I need something to lift me out of it. I know that winning this prize would be a giant step in the right direction.

  415. rosiered  |  8 April 2008 at 10:29 PM

    I would love to use this gift to bring joy to those around me!

  416. Marissa  |  8 April 2008 at 11:06 PM

    I would love to win because I’m in school to become an esthetician and I would love to try out these products to find the best to use on my clients!

  417. caseyk  |  8 April 2008 at 11:14 PM

    happy happy happy day of birth!!!
    its like in grade school when the birthday girl/boy would bring goodies for everyone else to enjoy… but only WAY BETTER 🙂
    congrats and keep on.

  418. Alice  |  8 April 2008 at 11:30 PM

    happy birthday! I love to play around with new products and share with friends : ]

  419. Victoria Peterson  |  9 April 2008 at 12:07 AM

    ~~ I would love a few beauty products to brighten the gloomy weather in Seattle! You could help this Pacific Northwest student shine through the rain! ~~ best:)

  420. Michelle  |  9 April 2008 at 3:05 AM

    I’d love to win because there are things in here I never would’ve heard of, much less tried, if I hadn’t visited your site.

  421. Hunter Claire  |  9 April 2008 at 3:07 AM

    Je vous souhaites un joyeux anniversaire!
    Happy Birthday!
    Please help out a stressed out english assistant finish up the year!
    gros bisous

  422. Bernadette  |  9 April 2008 at 4:53 AM

    Happy Bday!! I’d love to feed my daily, beauty obsession!

  423. Jackie  |  9 April 2008 at 4:59 AM

    Happy Early Birthday!
    As someone facing her 30th birthday in a month and not so happy about it, a gift like this would ease the transition and make my birthday something to celebrate after all.

  424. Gwen Bierbower  |  9 April 2008 at 6:15 AM

    Happy B-day D.O.!!!

    You should pick me because I just had to have surgery for vulvar cancer 🙁 and this would really cheer me up!!!

  425. Kim  |  9 April 2008 at 7:20 AM

    I would review everything and post it on ‘a site that shall not be named’ – because product reviews generate/kill so many lemmings! And they’re helpful to all!

  426. Elaine  |  9 April 2008 at 7:24 AM

    Please pick me – my birthday is on April 11th, and this would be the absolute best b-day gift I could imagine!!

  427. Nancy  |  9 April 2008 at 7:27 AM

    Please pick me, I am trying to write product reviews but I’m broke and I really need something great to review!

  428. Carol  |  9 April 2008 at 7:28 AM

    Happy Birthday! I am just starting to get back into wearing makeup and beautifying myself after having a baby so this would definitely come in handy and save my wallet because everything seems to be spent on the baby these days!

  429. Olivia Kim  |  9 April 2008 at 7:34 AM

    Because ive never won anything in my life before!

  430. Lori  |  9 April 2008 at 7:57 AM

    As a busy stay at home mom of three there is never enough time or funds for myself.
    What a great prize this would be to pamper ME for a change. Happy Birthday 🙂

  431. Cinthia  |  9 April 2008 at 8:00 AM

    Please pick me, this would be a great birthday present for me. I so need something like this in my life for it would really turn my luck around. i would be so happy!

  432. Jessica  |  9 April 2008 at 8:29 AM

    Because it would be super awesome!

  433. Kristi B.  |  9 April 2008 at 8:33 AM

    First off, Happy birthday! I am soo proud of you guys, i loveee your blog and it is a highlight of my day when i get to read it and you have new postings. I love everything you guys have to say and it is always so amusing!

    I would love to win for many reasons, but one is that I attend the FIDM school in LA to pursue my love with beauty and I major in marketing and merchandising. So with winning of this basket, it would further my beauty dream of owning or marketing for a beauty company. So with every ounce of product i receive, it helps me in my schooling and with my passion.
    Please consider me for your winner, thank you soo much and keep up the GREAT work!!

  434. Marianne Mayer  |  9 April 2008 at 8:43 AM

    I love love love the daily obsession !!!

    Does my obsession love me ? ;-)….


  435. Stephanie C.  |  9 April 2008 at 8:47 AM

    Happy birthday TDO!! I love this site!

    What a fabulous package you have put together here. I would love to win this, my inner product whore would have so many goodies to try! What a great way to get ready for the summer!!!

  436. Stephanie  |  9 April 2008 at 9:01 AM

    Oh how you would make a stay at home mom feel oh so pretty with all those wonderful products she can’t afford to pamper herself with. They say 90% of moms let themselves go, and you could help this mom get a little of herself back. Happy Birthday to you!!!!

  437. Janet in California  |  9 April 2008 at 9:57 AM

    Happy Birthday! I really enjoy your site.

    I want to win because I turn 50 (!) this year and I believe I still own some make-up from high school. 🙁 Time for a make-over!

  438. Shefali  |  9 April 2008 at 10:00 AM

    I’d love to win because this is an AWESOME giveaway, but more importantly, I would love to share some of these amazing products with my two cousins who can’t afford to have any of them. One of them is getting married and for her to have some of these great products to use at her wedding would be so special, especially because she is opting to do her own makeup so she can save money. To have some of these products would really make her day.

    Happy Birthday!! I love your blog!

  439. Lisa  |  9 April 2008 at 10:09 AM

    I would SO dearly love to win this package! I have worked hard at losing 72 pounds and try to reward myself with gifts of beauty to not only learn to reward myself with gifts other than food but to learn to pamper myself a little which I don’t do very often. But it takes major $$$ to give myself these kinds of rewards and I tend to do it with drugstore products as that is what I can afford. I would love to be able to try some truly lovely and luxurious products. I tend to live vicariously through beauty blogs such as this and it would be so exciting to get to try what I only read about. It’s an ULTIMATE reward for my hard work! Thanks so much for your consideration and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 🙂

  440. Julie  |  9 April 2008 at 10:26 AM

    I want to win because I live, eat, sleep, dream beauty products!

  441. Ashley  |  9 April 2008 at 10:45 AM

    What a cool giveaway! Happy anniversary!

  442. Kathy Wang  |  9 April 2008 at 10:51 AM

    I want to win because these products are fabulous!! and I love this site!

  443. C Abrams  |  9 April 2008 at 10:58 AM

    I’d love to win because the last few years of my life have been somewhat of a beauty desert, and I’d like to reintroduce some self-love (and makeup!) to my world.

    And oh hey, congratulations!

  444. Amanda  |  9 April 2008 at 11:05 AM

    What great prizes!

  445. Katie  |  9 April 2008 at 11:09 AM

    Happy Birthday TDO!! Congrats on 2 years of amazing blogs. So your birthday is April 13th?? So is mine! It would make my sweet 16 even sweeter if you chose me to win these amazing products! Plus I would love to share everything with my mom and sister- they always ask me for beauty help and sometimes i just don’t have the products to help them. Plus my mom is such an amazing woman and deserves to be pampered! (as do all moms)
    Thanks so much!

  446. Brenee  |  9 April 2008 at 11:30 AM

    OH YUMMY!!

    I want to win, b/c I have finally mastered… while figured out, this make up thing!!
    Thick foundation out…tinted moisturizer in.
    I lust for high quality products, but with grad school in the horizon it’s not possible.
    I pray your random selection lands in my favor:)

  447. Jessica  |  9 April 2008 at 11:33 AM

    A package like this would be an amazing lift right now, but I’m not going to advertise issues of depression, bdd, dermatillomania, etc. etc. because it is quite apparent that everyone here has their own valid reasonings for wanting and maybe even needing this lot. So, should I be chosen, great! (Really, really, really, really great!) If not, I know it went to some other deserving TDO fan. This is an incredibly generous giveaway you’re doing and I respect the participation of the brands involved. You guys are doing something really good here, and I don’t see this as something to “lose” – two people win and it’s a fantastic benefit for them. The rest of us know that the world has just gotten a little bit better. No loss whatsoever.

  448. Katya P.  |  9 April 2008 at 12:03 PM

    Congrats on your anniversary! And thanks for keeping this great site going. Why should I win? Because it’s taken me some time but I’ve finally realized that beauty products are better for the soul than they are for the face ♥

  449. Rachel E.  |  9 April 2008 at 12:49 PM

    I am 27 and just recently started wearing makeup because before I didn’t really know what colors worked for me and I am not very coordinated with applying it. Recently I have really been trying to learn and I am realizing how great makeup is! I have been trying to catch up and start my beauty supply at sephora but the products are expensive and I have a long way to go. I would love to win these exciting beauty products!

  450. lucy  |  9 April 2008 at 1:07 PM

    happy birthday indeed.
    it’s simple why i would like to win.. winning things is so fun.
    i also heart product, i heart bags, and i heart undies which there seems to be a lot of. 🙂

  451. Berlene  |  9 April 2008 at 1:21 PM

    I want to win because this is the ultimate giveaway and I could share with my daughter. Happy Birthday!

  452. jk  |  9 April 2008 at 1:24 PM

    why should i win? quite simply, i need make up to live. ever since my first compact of bright blue bonnie bell eyeshadow and glittery pink bottle of wet n wild polish, i have been addicted to all things cosmetic. recently i changed jobs and have been forced to cut back on my sephora, bliss and cosmetic counter expenditures. I’m crushed–i just don’t feel like myself without my three different kinds of mascara (water proof for rainy days, lengthening for drama days, etc.), my box of 80 shades of lip gloss and my heaps of sparkly, matte and tacky eyeshadow! I visit your site and many other beauty sites daily just to get my fix.

    I would love to win this gift pack of awesome beauty products to keep me excited for weeks on end!

    eta: i just read all the awesome posts above me, and i can’t understand why anyone would want to give this to a makeup junkie like me. 😉 good luck picking one! happy birthday!

  453. Karina  |  9 April 2008 at 1:26 PM

    This is such an awesome gift! A lot of these items I’ve been wishing to try but don’t have the income or the time to do so. Last year was especially rough on me, what with my good friend’s murder and the rape of someone very close to me. I’m trying to change myself from the inside out this year, which began with my boyfriend dumping me while I’m overseas. I have to go back and move all of my stuff out of his place, the place I’ve been living for nearly three years, and find a place on my own…I’ve never lived on my own. Some obsessions of TDO would certainly make the transition from “engaged young woman” to “single girl” much easier. Good luck to everyone!

  454. taka  |  9 April 2008 at 1:29 PM

    Happy B-day! and because i’m a newbie to makeup and this would be a great way to start a collection!

  455. Kelly  |  9 April 2008 at 1:30 PM

    I would love to win this because I’m a poor student who’s just getting into make-up… Not having to choose between gas and a new basic essential item would be awesome.

  456. elysef  |  9 April 2008 at 1:30 PM

    holy crap, what a loverly giveaway. I am drooling a little bit.

  457. Jessica  |  9 April 2008 at 1:37 PM

    This list looks like heaven to me. I have a serious beauty obsession, but unfortunately my current budget/salary definitely doesn’t support the lifestyle I WISH I could live 🙂

  458. emily marie p.  |  9 April 2008 at 1:47 PM

    your blog is constantly up on my computer screen. i look for tips on fashion and beauty as well as many other things! i also want to thank you for having this blog, i cant even imagine how much work goes into it. i am so grateful for what you do and your advice, so i can always stay chic!
    i deserve this kit because i am coming out of my second battle with clinical depression. since october, i have completely let myself go. i rarely washed my hair, or shaved my legs, so you can forget about putting makeup on everyday. before my depression my nickname was ” smiley” and i was known as the girl that spends WAY to much time playing with makeup. as i am beginning to feel like myself again, i realized how important it is to take care of yourself, and in turn how that improves your mood. so now the razor has comeout of the package, and my body products are getting their first use in a while. this gift would help me to get back to my normal beauty product obsession. i am finally starting to feel good about myself, and i know these products will make me feel even better!
    thank you so much for giving this amazing gift, i know it will make two TDO readers extremely happy!

    xoxo, em

  459. kim p  |  9 April 2008 at 1:53 PM

    I am a product junky and love to try new things.

  460. Susanna King  |  9 April 2008 at 1:58 PM

    What wonderful prizes! I want to win because I love feeling beautiful and trying new makeup and beauty products. Also, I am stingy (as you can see from my blog) and I would much rather win this much beauty stuff than buy it outright. 😉

  461. Carlina Harris  |  9 April 2008 at 1:59 PM

    I love makeup, unfortunately I can only afford the cheapie kind. Not only that but some of the makeup I have in my case have been in there since the glory days of college! I would love to celebrate my upcoming b-day with a suprise goodie bag!!! Thank you TDO for all you do for us fashionista’s!!!

  462. Mary Blanton  |  9 April 2008 at 2:11 PM

    Because I am bored at work. Happy Birthday!

  463. Karina  |  9 April 2008 at 2:17 PM

    First, Happy Birthday!

    Second, well, I really want to win because I think my self esteem could use the boost. I recently got out of a physically and emotionally abusive marriage and well, I just want to feel pretty.

  464. Keri Mercer  |  9 April 2008 at 2:18 PM

    Happy Anniversary! I really want to win because I would LOVE to give these to my mom. I love beauty products and as a former beautician, my mom was the one who taught me all about makeup when I was younger. Now she lives on a limited budget and can not afford to splurge so I try to spoil her but can usually only get away with that on birthdays and Christmas. She hates for me to spend money on her. So this would give her no excuse since it is free! 🙂

  465. Carrie  |  9 April 2008 at 2:43 PM

    Happy Anniversary! I would love love love to win this because, well, what girl wouldn’t want to win it! And, as the one glam girl in my office, winning all these products would make me that much more glam! I’m a new subscriber, and The Daily Obsession is my new obsession!!!

  466. Kat Dobson  |  9 April 2008 at 2:51 PM

    I want to win because working on a non-profit salary does not allow me to splurge on fabulous products. I’m 21, I should be dolled up, not running around with circles under my eyes!

  467. jc  |  9 April 2008 at 2:58 PM

    A very happy anniversary! 2 years! That’s like forever on the internet. And hopefully many more years to come.

    I think I should win because I’m about to step out into the real world after 4 long [and beauty-less] years at a major art school. I want to put my best fresh face forward into such an already competitive and beauty hungry art industry. And this very lovely package might just be what I need after being drained from caring about my looks by my rigorous shooting schedule!

    Oh and my birthday is kind of coming up soon, so this might make for an exceptional gift!

  468. Ann H.  |  9 April 2008 at 3:13 PM

    Me! this exhausted consultant has been traveling cross country to California every week nonstop since january 🙁 My skin, hair, and makeup needs help and an update! Would love to try new products and take some time for myself once in a while.

  469. Julia Hatten  |  9 April 2008 at 3:15 PM

    Happy anniversary!! Please pick me. I love your website, and I absolutely lloovvee everything in the package! I live for makeup and hair products! This kit is filled with things I lust for day and night…And my birthday is soon! This might just be the best present I could ever receive. Thank you!

  470. Carleen Pruess  |  9 April 2008 at 3:41 PM

    Happy Birthday to a great site! I would love to win this because I adore trying many new products. I would give half of the stuff away again as gifts as well!

  471. Kirsten  |  9 April 2008 at 3:52 PM

    Happy Birthday! Love this site, it is quite literally one of my personal “daily obsessions”! Why wouldn’t I want to win? All of those products… it would be like HEAVEN to win. I am a total product junkie, I just can’t help myself, as my banking and charge accounts most certainly reflect. If I only had a dollar left to my name, I would probably spend it on new type/brand of chapstick or something like that.

  472. Julia  |  9 April 2008 at 4:03 PM

    I would love to win the 2nd anniversary giveaway because I could share the booty with my similarly product-addicted friends and family. Congratulations on the milestone!

  473. Kristi  |  9 April 2008 at 4:05 PM

    As a poor grad student about to graduate into the “real” world, I could use a stash to kick off my new career and this new phase of my life.

  474. Heather  |  9 April 2008 at 4:12 PM

    I can only afford a tiny fraction of this much makeup in a year. This much variety would be amazing.

  475. Sarah  |  9 April 2008 at 4:21 PM

    Let’s see… new mom…currently living with grandparents… husband is away in another country… I would love for some free products!

  476. Margaret Angeloff  |  9 April 2008 at 4:28 PM

    Please choose me! I am a product fanatic and i read your blog frequently. Plus I need a serious pick-me-up as my husband just got called active in the marine corps (he’s been out for 2 years) and he is being sent overseas in ‘support of Iraqi Freedom’! 🙁 This would keep me my mind occupied elsewhere… Keep up the great blogging!

  477. Rebecca  |  9 April 2008 at 4:40 PM

    omg, wow! this give away is so great! I think I should win because in a few months, I’m going away to college and my parents are making me buy all of my own books! that means no extra money for make up. 🙁 If I won, I would be able to get through the beginning of college being smart AND looking fabulous!

    Thanks for making this giveaway available! I love your blog! 🙂

  478. elizabeth lee  |  9 April 2008 at 4:50 PM

    happy birthday TDO!
    i think i should win because my sisters have been stressing so much about school and my dads job and this would be a really great treat for us all! some free products would be the perfect pick-me-up and an awesome gift for the end of the year!
    thanks for the great giveaway!

  479. Courtney  |  9 April 2008 at 4:51 PM

    I have a daily obsession with reading about your daily obsessions! I read this site every day before I check my e-mail!!! I love it and I would love any freebies to spice up my dull midwest college life!!!

  480. kara  |  9 April 2008 at 4:54 PM

    congratulations on your 2 year birthday! i would love to win this contest because i have been out of work for quite a while, and so my boyfriend and i can barely pay our bills and eat let alone have extra money for me to spend on the makeup and skincare things that i love more than anything else! even though i can never buy anything, i still obsessively read up on everything and lust after many, many, many things! anytime one of my friends has a beauty question or needs help with their makeup, i’m the first one they call, and i would definitely share this amazing gift with all of them. thanks for offering us this amazing contest and good luck to everyone!!!

  481. Melissa  |  9 April 2008 at 4:54 PM

    Great blog for introducing me to many new products. I would love to win because I am a freelance makeup artist in addition to a full time job. Having new things to try and use would be very appreciated in helping the many wonderful women I get to work with. Since I have to work both jobs to financially support myself, I can’t always afford the newest product out there. Thanks for your consideration! 🙂

  482. alain  |  9 April 2008 at 4:55 PM

    first off happy birthday!!! i would love to win because i would like to give it all to my mom who’s always been my beauty icon. she has always been fearless and regal in her beauty application, but because of her very frugal nature has always stuck with only drugstore products. words can’t describe how happy i would be to see her face if she were to win all of these prizes!

  483. Jane Zhang  |  9 April 2008 at 4:58 PM

    Happy Early Birthday, TDO! I’m a huge makeup junkie and a full time poor graduate student, so I need something to feed my addiction without putting a dent in my wallet! If I win, my bank account thanks you =D

  484. Jen L.  |  9 April 2008 at 5:30 PM

    Happy Anniversary! I’ve been just getting started into skincare products and makeup at an older age–26. Amazingly fun blogs like this one keep the learning process more enjoyable! ‚ù§

  485. Mel H  |  9 April 2008 at 5:32 PM

    I’d love to win – I’m in a total rut with my makeup and style overall. A bunch of new stuff to experiment with is exactly what I need to develop a new look I can feel confident about!

  486. Tricia Alexander  |  9 April 2008 at 5:33 PM

    Everyday is a new adventure when you are 62 and I am always looking for new makeup, new hairstyles and new fragrances. Everything is exciting right now and winning great new products would be whipped cream atop an ice cream soda.

    I would love to win this prize to share with my friends and family. So often we’re focused on the things that worry us, stress us out and the littlest thing can absolutely make someone’s day. I would share the winnings with a song in my heart and and a huge smile on my face knowing everyone at The Daily Obsession and me together really gave someone a little spark of happiness. Thank you for the opportunity to post. Even if I don’t get chosen, maybe a reader here will feel compelled to make someone smile with a similar gesture. 🙂

  488. Shyre  |  9 April 2008 at 5:39 PM

    I’ve given away a lot of products over the years that didn’t work for me, so now it’s time for that to come back around!

  489. Mouse  |  9 April 2008 at 5:52 PM

    I love makeup but have a hard time spending money on expensive products, so yay! Free stuff!

  490. Kristina W. (Krissy)  |  9 April 2008 at 6:15 PM

    I am trying really hard to get into makeup. I have researched and researched. I have watche multiply videos on how to line my to applying foundation. However i do not have the fund to purchase the quality makeup that i would like. This would realy help me get ont he right track.

  491. Devin  |  9 April 2008 at 6:26 PM

    I LOVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS! I spend so much money on them and, like many posters here, I am a starving student. Yes, that’s right, I starve so I can buy pretty lingere, M.A.C. bronzing powder for the pale-all-nighter-complexion. And, thanks to a scholarship from my school’s study abroad office, I’m going to France this summer and I’ll get to try/buy new products I’ve never heard of before! This package will save me loads of money since I plan to be as broke as a joke when I return to the states…..and have glowing skin, great hair and pretty undies to show for it! Thank God you can eat cheap over there!

  492. Nina C  |  9 April 2008 at 6:37 PM

    As a college student on a limited budget trying to expand my beauty repertoire this package would be such a boon. It is hard for me to buy lots of things to try and end up with something that doesn’t work for me. (I am also the designated makeup person in my hall and having new products to share would make my girlfriends very happy!). Having new things to experiment with would be awesome!

  493. lindsey  |  9 April 2008 at 6:58 PM

    Please please please choose me! My boyfriend of TWO YEARS (just like you guys!) just got engaged and I’m dying to have a new look and special makeup for the wedding.

  494. Sara  |  9 April 2008 at 7:01 PM

    I’d love to win this because I love to try new products!

  495. Kirsten Lahnemann  |  9 April 2008 at 7:05 PM

    I suffer from a very painful yet incurable nerve disorder, RSDS. Playing with makeup and other wonderful products helps to lift my spirits on even my darkest days.I would absolutely love to win because I am the biggest product whore any of my family/friends know of! Everyone I know loves to come over for a makeover, or just to try out the latest and greatest. I’m told that coming to my home is like visiting a spa! I just can’t resist trying out anything new, and I’m a sucker for clever advertising and great packaging! There have been months where I have spent more money at Sephora than on my mortgage! SSSHHH! DON’T TELL MY HUSBAND!
    Thanks for the always enjoyable site and Happy Birthday!!

  496. Theresa  |  9 April 2008 at 7:06 PM

    Happy Birthday!!! Love the site! I’m stuck in a beauty rut and am trying to get out, so I need some new products to help me!

  497. Cynthia Lesiuk  |  9 April 2008 at 7:23 PM

    If I win, then I won’t feel so guilty for the 1/12 of my life I spend skulking around these wonderful blogs, finding more products I can’t live without!

  498. Diana Blaszkiewicz  |  9 April 2008 at 7:36 PM

    I can’t believe I haven’t heard of Daily Obsesh until now, but I’ve been reading your past articles like crazy!
    Happy Birthday and thank you for sharing your bits of beauty wisdom with us all!

  499. sara l.  |  9 April 2008 at 7:53 PM

    WOW! Why do I want to win??? Have you seen that “make me drool” list of awesome products? LOL! This Mommy needs to get her groove back and this would be just the stuff to make it happen! LOL! Thanks for such a generous giveaway!

  500. jenny lawrence  |  9 April 2008 at 8:19 PM

    Why do I want to win?

    well, lets see, i am 25 weeks prego and instead of growing out, i am growing wide. hehehhe…i would love a little beauty boost to enhance the prego loveliness.

    LOVE the blog….check it every day.

  501. gracieO  |  9 April 2008 at 8:30 PM

    WOW this is the BEST give-away I have seen anywhere. Better than celeb swag!! What sane woman wouldn’t want to win :o)

  502. uyen  |  9 April 2008 at 8:32 PM

    First off, I would like to say that I love your style of writing. I’ve just started reading this blog, but I am going to go through all the archives. Even the ones from two years ago. 😛 Congrats on the two year anniversary by the way ! 🙂

    I would love to win this package because I am a beauty junkie. (: I blow most of my money on cosmetics and beauty doo-dads and, well, now I’m broke like most of the other people on here. I’d love to share this package with my friends and family too because we are all, sooo… broke. Haha. My friends adn my family and I are always looking for new looks and this would help it. I’d especially like to share it with my friend who is always calling herself “fat” and “ugly” and I think this would help her boost her self-esteem. 🙂



  503. amy  |  9 April 2008 at 8:50 PM

    Winning something like this would make me feel wonderful. I need that right now. Thank you for making this possible!

  504. Monique H.  |  9 April 2008 at 9:13 PM

    happy birthday!!

    i would like to win because, simply put, i love beauty products!!!

  505. Laura  |  9 April 2008 at 9:25 PM

    I would like to win b/c I graduated from law school a year ago, have a ton of debt and still no job. I’m trying to grow up and use the right products but can’t afford to right now. This would be PERFECT!

  506. Sarah  |  9 April 2008 at 9:31 PM

    Happy Birthday 🙂

    As a broke, 5th year college student (who would be a product junkie if I could afford to be) I would LOVE to win!

    Thanks for the awesome contest 🙂

  507. Erika E  |  9 April 2008 at 10:21 PM

    I would love to win because I am a forever-broke college student and would love to have a chance to try out all these great products that i otherwise could never afford. And honestly, who doesn’t like winning???

    Happy Birthday!

  508. Carrie  |  9 April 2008 at 10:36 PM

    To help me feel bee-you-tee-ful.

  509. Jennifer Hale  |  9 April 2008 at 10:41 PM

    It would be nice to try so many of these things that I can only walk by and drool at in Nordstroms…

    Thanks for a great chance TDO!!!

  510. Anna Slonimsky  |  9 April 2008 at 11:19 PM

  511. sheila  |  9 April 2008 at 11:25 PM

    I love everything that’s included! I’m in real need of a makeup makeover, and this would be a great start! May I also add that i’m a poor graduate student that loves finer things…
    pick me, pick me =D

  512. Audrey Weber  |  9 April 2008 at 11:35 PM

    Hey guys at TDO! Happy Birthday! I must say I am a huge fan of your blog and your commitment.

    I’m sure that anyone who wins one of these wonderful gifts will be very happy, me included. Please consider my plea because I have champagne tastes on a beer budget, and can’t afford very much. A basket full of beautifying products would really help my with my situation right now.

    Good Luck to the winners and may YOUR birthday at TDO be filled with even more goodies!

  513. Dawn  |  9 April 2008 at 11:48 PM

    As a stay at home mom of two boys, I rarely get a chance to splurge on myself. My extra dollars are spent on replacing lost gym shoes, replacing jeans that mysteriously get holes in the knees and paying for extracurricular activities. I almost never splurge in products that might actually make me look better, younger, more put together. I can’t tell you what a treat it would be to actually win something for myself. And I would be forever grateful!!!

  514. tritawan ruttivut  |  10 April 2008 at 12:11 AM

    I’d like to win because this is a great opportunity to try all these great products from many of my favorite brands also get to explore new brands that I’m not familiar with. I’ve just began being a makeup and skincare junkie not too long ago and I’d like to try everything beauty related, this will be a nice way to fulfill my wish. Random drawing machine, please pick me!

  515. M  |  10 April 2008 at 12:11 AM

    I’d love to win this for my wife. She is beautiful and would put these products to good use. It’d be nice if I win, she’d be very happy and I would too.

  517. Aisha  |  10 April 2008 at 12:46 AM

    WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO WIN ALL OF THIS..lolz! 🙂 guys have great items..would love to win them..since I am a home-maker and I can’t splurge my hubby’s hard-earned money on my beauty cravings! 🙁

    Wow! What a giveaway! Congrats on 2 years. I’d love to win, to try things myself and to share with other wonderful moms in my life. I’m a mom to 2 little girls, most of my friends are young moms and we don’t have much time or funds for these little indulgences.

    Happy Birthday! It’s my birthday too (no, really! I’m 32 on April 13th!)

    I could tell you all the reasons I would love to win, but they would sound so pathetic and silly to say out loud! Let’s just say that I’m long overdue for some pampering and winning would be the only way it’s going to happen. 🙂

    Either way, love you blog – so glad I found it!

  528. Kassie  |  10 April 2008 at 10:25 AM

    Woah. Can I just say that whoever wins this (me me me pick ME!!) will be one lucky lady. This is freakin’ awesome!

  530. Erika  |  10 April 2008 at 10:35 AM

    I would like to win because I’ve never owned anything spectacular or as beautiful as all these products would make me feel. I have a 55 hour a week job, running around after kids and their parents… and I could only imagine how happy winning would make me feel and how fabulous I would look! I’m long, long overdue for some fun!

  531. Valerie  |  10 April 2008 at 11:16 AM

    I love freebies, and these goodies are just too delicious to pass up! Keep up the fantastic reviews and posts! Cheers

  535. Amanda P.  |  10 April 2008 at 12:40 PM

    Happy 2nd birthday! I’d like to add my name this growing list of those that could really use a beauty pick me up. I’m pregnant, due in a few weeks, while everything you read says you are glowing and radiant, it’s often hard to feel that way when you are packing on the pounds and having a hard time getting around. Nothing about me feels pretty! With so many wonderful things included, I would also enjoy sharing the loot with some amazing and supportive women in my life!
    I appreciate your insights, interviews and all the work you put into this classy and informative blog. Thanks and keep up the great work!

  536. Tammy M  |  10 April 2008 at 1:06 PM

    Happy Birthday! 2 years, wow!
    Please pick me because I just started to get into the higher priced stuff…and this would really “jump start” my collection!

    I love looking great! and these products would help me keep looking great. =)

  548. Tamika G.  |  10 April 2008 at 5:08 PM

    I am a new reader, and would like to wish you guys a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! 🙂 I look foorward to sharing the next 50 with you as a faithful reader. Like many, I am a college student, although an untraditional one (I’m 35–yikes!) I am also the mother of two young girls, 11 and 9 who take absolute delight in “helping” Mom use the few items she’s able to eek out of the budget from time to time! *chuckle* As much as I would love to win, I would love to “nominate” someone else in my place. That person is my mother. She has given of herself so fully in helping me obtain my dreams, as well as others. She single-handedly manages a household of 5 females (NO EASY FEAT!!) as well as caring for her mother. I would love to see her win one thing in her lifetime, to see the joy she would receive. She has never pampered herself, and I know it would help her spirit, which admittedly gets a little down from time to time. I have such plans on how to repay her, but they have to be deferred until after grad school and the big bucks. This would be such a great start in my saying “Thanks, Mom….for everything. I couldn’t have done this without your love and support!!” Thank you for any consideration!

  549. Mikey  |  10 April 2008 at 6:31 PM

    This (and new posts) would be the only things getting me through to the weekend!

  550. Lisa  |  10 April 2008 at 6:34 PM

    even though I dont win,
    I <3 the daily obsession!!
    its a blog that i recently came across
    and could not live without.

    thanks! 🙂

  551. LC  |  10 April 2008 at 6:45 PM

    What an amazing opportunity! This would make an amazing job for my friends and me graduating from college this year!

    Pick us, please! 4 years at Harvard aren’t easy!!

  552. Alicia  |  10 April 2008 at 6:55 PM

    I want to win because…. who wouldn’t want to win such great stuff? 🙂 I am a new reader, and am so excited to find my obsession is not alone. I love all the new stuff, but tend to spend my play money on star wars action figures for my 5 year old. i should win because: it’s spring and we are supposed to get 3-8 inches of snow tonight! winning will make it less sad when i’m scooping us out this weekend. congratulations on the anniversary.

  553. Lauren  |  10 April 2008 at 8:09 PM

    My birthday is coming up, this would be a great present for me!!!

  556. Michelle  |  10 April 2008 at 9:17 PM

    I would love to win such a luscious selection, who wouldn’t? I would share it with my other entrepreneurial friends who need some spring sprucing just as much as I do. In any event, I must tell you I am always inspired by your paper goods posts, just the best on the web, period. Thanks for your always illuminating posts and making everything a bit briter for all of us.

  557. Michelle Rosborough  |  10 April 2008 at 10:24 PM

    And myself. I think I’d like to make myself feel better too.

  575. Tess  |  11 April 2008 at 1:14 PM

  576. Gloria  |  11 April 2008 at 1:44 PM

    I would love to win because I am a college student who is just now beginning to develop an interest in beauty products… and the kit would be a wonderful start before I enter the working world! 🙂

    Congratulations on the 2 yrs!
    Speaking of 2 – I have two amazing tots (3 1/2 and 1/2) and I think this bag would be a kick start into reclaiming my beauty and image in this new phase of womanhood! Who says you can’t look fabulous at the playground?!

  585. Esra  |  11 April 2008 at 8:18 PM

    Well, I am a very BROKE, junior in high school, who really needs to look GLAM you know … with your help right now obviously since I will NEVER be able to see all these in my make up bag.. pshh 🙂 I could acually stay up here and right an whole essay on why but if I don’t go to sleep my lovely dark circles under my eyes wont go away since i dont have all these amazingly awsomely great products:) Well Happy Birthday! & More happy years to come !

  586. danandmarsh  |  11 April 2008 at 8:42 PM blogged about your contest!!! Happy 2nd! I just love the great prizes and I want to be the envy of my friends!

  587. Janene  |  11 April 2008 at 8:53 PM

    I’m always trying to bring a little color and beauty to law school (yuck, right?), and this would be a great way to do it, since i don’t have the time or money to find and try so many products.

  588. Emilyann  |  11 April 2008 at 10:19 PM

    it would be great to have these, me being a teenage girl in highschool and all(:

  589. Noel  |  11 April 2008 at 10:35 PM

    Aww, happy 2 years! You were one of the first blogs I ever read, and the one of the few that inspired me to work so hard on my own blog (thanks SO much for linking to me, btw!).

    I’d love to win for many many many reasons — but they all sum up with the fact that I’m Asian and I was brought up to love free stuff :].

  590. Deborah  |  11 April 2008 at 11:37 PM

    Wow! Such a FABULOUS giveaway! Fun! Fun! Fun! Why do I want to win?! Who wouldn’t want to win? This is great stuff and it would be so AMAZING to win!

  591. Kara  |  12 April 2008 at 4:31 AM

    This would absolutely fantastic for me to win because I LOVE all beauty products, but my wallet doesn’t agree. I end up only being able to buy a new product maybe 3 times a year and that’s it, I’ve got to love what I got or don’t use anything at all. Experimenting at Sephora and Ulta stores can only be fun so so long… this would be like a dream come true!

  592. Cindy  |  12 April 2008 at 4:54 AM

    I’d love to win this prize package! I always try to be pretty and fashionable at graduate school, but my budget doesn’t allow too much splurging!

  593. Candice  |  12 April 2008 at 7:01 AM

    Happy almost birthday!

    I’d like to win because I travel wayyyyy too much to work to boring cities and have little time for pampering! And plus my skin hates hotel sheets!!

  594. Ro  |  12 April 2008 at 7:07 AM

    I am about to turn 38 and although I look great for my age-I could really use these nips in the buds!! 🙂

  595. Lauren  |  12 April 2008 at 8:18 AM

    my makeup bag just melted in the back of my car… usual obsession has now been turned into a mess! please help refill my bag and continue my obsession with products.

    Love this site! thank you thank you thank you!

  596. Allison  |  12 April 2008 at 9:15 AM

    I would love to try some of these things. Happy Anniversary!

  597. Kris  |  12 April 2008 at 10:16 AM

    Wow, I’m stupefied at the list! Why would I want this? Gee, only to be in product-sampling heaven from here to eternity (or many years to come, at least). Many thanks for the opportunity!

  598. Kassi  |  12 April 2008 at 11:44 AM

    I would love to win this, it would help out with my up-coming wedding, and then last forever! I think I would cry when I ran out of new things to play with and try out. Thanks for giving all of us this opportunity!!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

  599. Penny  |  12 April 2008 at 12:12 PM

    Happy Birthday TDO! I would love to win all of these goodies since my budget doesn’t allow me to buy such great things. Plus my two daughters want me to win so they can “borrow” them.

  600. Katherine  |  12 April 2008 at 12:19 PM

    I’ve never been much of a beauty girl before, but after trying on some new make-up (color!) and jewelry (shiny objects!) in NYC (a break from middle-of-nowhere PA where I teach), I’ve been starting to enjoy all the treats I’d before left to my mom and her make-up bag. It’s not because I became chic and glamorous over night, I just feel that way — I feel good. And not in the I-felt-badly-about-myself before way either. More in the I-hold-my shoulders-back-more-now way.

    A month after I began wearing foundation, admiring my newly-polished nail, and putting on eye cream before bed, my husband yesterday (who is always careful and kind not to tell me I look better one way or another) told me that he thought I looked more radiant than usual. I’m standing up a little straighter…

    Now I’m just having fun experimenting with my new-found enjoyment of products and playthings, and without a city at my disposal, I’ve started to read (OK, depend on) your blog for all things delightful. It’s my walk into urbanity, and I never miss my daily walks! Thanks!

  601. Sarah  |  12 April 2008 at 12:39 PM

    This would be amazing to win! I’m making the transition from maternity wear once again and I’m already celebrating with a few new things in my closet. I would love to crowd my husband out of our bathroom entirely with some new, wonderful things to further enhance the way I look and feel.

    I’ll use the beautiful card designs to invite a few pals over to obsess with me – and to hold the baby while I play with all the goods.

    Happy b-day to you! Thanks for sharing the gifts!

  602. MOTU  |  12 April 2008 at 12:39 PM

    ME WIN! ME MOTU!!!

  603. Lynn  |  12 April 2008 at 1:38 PM

    I’ve only recently discovered the ultimate in lid primers, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. And now, I’m ALL ABOUT wearing eyeshadows and playing, buying, and trying everything I can get my hands on! Long gone are those years of only eyeliner and mascara. I’m a free woman again!!!

  604. Elena Pantelis  |  12 April 2008 at 2:25 PM

    I want to win because I am from Greece and I live in Greece so here we dont have the opportunity to have all these american products!

  605. carol smith  |  12 April 2008 at 2:44 PM

    How could anyone not want to win such a beauty bounty?! Yes, please!

  606. Whitney  |  12 April 2008 at 5:41 PM

    Because the dog ate most of my beauty supplies.

  607. Sienna M.  |  12 April 2008 at 5:57 PM

    I’m a stay-at-home mom who also happens to be a beauty product junkie subsisting on a baby formula budget with Chanel tastes…. This would help balance my budget!

  608. Courtney L  |  12 April 2008 at 7:32 PM

    Wow, that is SO cool! Happy Birthday!!!

  609. robin barrows  |  12 April 2008 at 8:07 PM

    omg, hours of fun…
    love the blog

  610. Mirtha S.  |  12 April 2008 at 8:22 PM

    This is so cool! I promise to use each and every single one of these products!!! I’d love to win!!

  611. Bridgett P  |  12 April 2008 at 8:40 PM

    I’m a make-up junkie and need to feed my habit !! LOVE YOUR BLOG !!! CONGRATS!

  612. Janiece  |  12 April 2008 at 8:54 PM

    Happy birthday!! I would really love to win this prize. My skin (body and face) is currently going through a weird dry phase, and I would like to update my look and discover some new brands.

  613. Cristal Shalene  |  12 April 2008 at 8:55 PM

    I love, love, love products but due to my recent move from the city(so sad) I’ve packd most of my goodies away and am only left with few products to play with… Until the dust clears and the boxes are unpacked I’m sticking with the basics left in my purse…some gloss and tinted moisturizer. WOULD LOVE TO WIN SOME NEW STUFF so that I won’t have to wait until the last box is unpacked…You know that everything you want is always in that last box so…Good Luck to all…

  614. Jeannine McKnight  |  12 April 2008 at 8:58 PM

    I am obsessed with this prize and with your site. Happy birthday and best wishes for many many more! Thanks for sharing the love!

  615. Madison Lynn Monk  |  12 April 2008 at 9:06 PM

    While it would be so much fun to possess such an abundance of luxury products, I think it would be even more fulfilling to share the loot with all my girlfriends and colleagues — spreading the word about The Daily Obsession! Thank you for the opportunity 🙂

  616. Maria  |  12 April 2008 at 9:50 PM

    Happy Birthday! I’d love to win so I can share these products with my best friend who is living overseas and can’t get most beauty products–I’d send her a great care package!

  617. Jessica  |  12 April 2008 at 9:59 PM

    Happy Birthday! I love makeup and i can really use this prize, cant live without makeup, and i love love love love your site!!

  618. Robin  |  12 April 2008 at 10:03 PM

    Happy Blog-day!

    Congrats! and I would love to win this basket for my mom. She is an avid reader of your blog, but recently she has been in the hospital suffering her bout of cemo due to breast cancer. this basket would be a great surprise that i could share with her while she is still getting well. I would greatly appreciate you donating this basket to my mom on behalf of me, thank you so much! and keep up the great work!

  619. Charlotte  |  12 April 2008 at 10:31 PM

    Happy 2nd birthday!

    I’m a low maintenance girl who needs a bit of a pick-me-up now that I’m newly single ~ so I would love to win such a fabulous package that would garner me a mini-makeover!

  620. Anne Carrasco  |  12 April 2008 at 10:44 PM

    As a (first time) mother of a relentless 18-month-old troublemaker (his name is Kingston)– I say this with much love– I must admit that my free time is now usually devoted to recuperating. Once upon a time I, too, had the time (and money) to indulge in all that Beauty entails. Please help me find that happy ending 😉

  621. Sarah  |  12 April 2008 at 10:50 PM

    I would love to win this (amazing) prize because there are a lot of things on the list I’ve really been wanting to try out and there’s no way I can afford all of it. Thank you!

  622. Josephine  |  12 April 2008 at 11:06 PM

    My makeup collection is very small and I will like to win these goodies to add to my small stash. Happy anniversary 🙂

  623. Daisy C.  |  12 April 2008 at 11:08 PM

    happy birthday!!! Because I have been reading your blog everyday for at least a year!

  624. Paula in Seattle  |  13 April 2008 at 2:32 AM

    Happy Birthday! I would love to win this. I am at home on medical leave and it would transform into a vacation playing with this lovely products! I may not want to go back to work…

  625. Nate  |  13 April 2008 at 3:31 AM

    I know my mom would be really happy if I gave her this prize pack for Mother’s Day. My roommate was nice enough to point this blog out to me–I’m gonna feel kind of bad if I take it from her, but WHAT THE HECK WHY NOT.

  626. Tisa  |  13 April 2008 at 6:59 AM

    What an amazing prize package! Wow! I would love to win this as I love to try new products but never seem to have enough left after kids/hubby “must have items” to actually anything for myself! Thanks! ~ 🙂

  627. Komal Mehta  |  13 April 2008 at 8:31 AM

    I want to win because I am a stressed out unemployed law student who could use something good.

  628. Erin McKnight  |  13 April 2008 at 9:50 AM

    I want to win because I honestly have not won anything in my life (do a background check if you wish!), and what better an opportunity to break my losing streak, with beauty products involved, no less?

  629. Jessica  |  13 April 2008 at 9:52 AM

    I have been a reader of your site for over a year. I read about these products but I don’t have the money to buy. I will really like to win =) Thanks for celebrating it with your readers.

  630. Erin  |  13 April 2008 at 9:54 AM

    As a stressed out first-year PhD student, winning this prize would help me relax post-finals (before summer research begins!)

  631. Esther  |  13 April 2008 at 10:26 AM

    I am a woman in the 50’s and just started to take care of my beauty. I need new things to pamper and primp. Thanks for a chance to win and happy birthday.

  632. Delirium~  |  13 April 2008 at 10:29 AM

    When I saw that fabulous list of products my heart skipped a few beats. I’d love to win. Love to.

    This entire year has been filled with trips in and out of hospitals, the doctors cannot agree what’s wrong with me so they subject me to all sorts of invasive and painful tests and operations. I have gained 8 kilos from eating just because i feel sorry for myself. I feel ugly, bloated and simply quite unglamorous in my life that most of all resembles a Dr House episode. I’m quite in need for something wonderful :o)

  633. Kinchen  |  13 April 2008 at 10:33 AM

    I would love to win I love free stuff

  634. mel  |  13 April 2008 at 11:47 AM

    What an amazing giveaway! I’d absolutely love to win — some of the stuff in there has been on my “to try” list for a while now! Thanks for hosting and happy birthday, TDO! Here’s to your terrible twos… 😉

  635. deborah  |  13 April 2008 at 1:25 PM

    Happy Birthday!

    I would love to win because I love makeup

  636. Meredith  |  13 April 2008 at 1:32 PM

    I always love trying new stuff, and a prize like that would make me feel like a kid in a candy shop! A kid with $100 in a candy shop, at that! 😀

  637. Suzanne  |  13 April 2008 at 2:11 PM

    Oh please pick me…I am a beauty addict. Make-up is my medium. It is the medium of my 17 month old son. We would have a ball together.

  638. Sandra  |  13 April 2008 at 2:41 PM

    Pick me !

  639. Wendy  |  13 April 2008 at 4:33 PM

    I’d love to try out all those beauty products! Happy Birthday!

  640. Cadey  |  13 April 2008 at 6:15 PM

    Happy birthday!! I would love to win because all these products are fabulous!!!

  641. Tori Dunlap  |  13 April 2008 at 6:28 PM

    I have been married for nearly a year now, and it seems that I have just let myself go. I am trying to eat healthier, get in shape, and lose those first year pounds. Great beauty products would really boost my spirits too!

  642. Jenna aka the Travel Diva  |  13 April 2008 at 6:41 PM

    Happy 2nd birthday! I just recently found your blog and it’s the best ever! Great advice and awesome products to drool over – what more could a Diva want in a blog?

    Why do I want to win? I could really use a spring makeover – so all those awesome products would really help!

  643. Emma  |  13 April 2008 at 7:27 PM

    Like many a college student commenter before me, I’d love to experiment and indulge in these various products but just don’t have the expendable income to do so! I am about to graduate (read: finals and frantic job searching) and this would be a definite pick-me-up to get through those final few weeks.

  644. Cristina  |  13 April 2008 at 8:36 PM

    I want to win because I LOVEEEE cosmetics!

  645. Caity  |  13 April 2008 at 8:45 PM

    So much fun stuff!

  646. Holly Steele  |  13 April 2008 at 9:39 PM

    My mother has ALS (Lou Gerhigs diease) my sister and I are in the midst of trying to set up a foundation for her and others with ALS (Lou Gerhig’s). We are hosting an dinner and fundraiser in June and this would be an amazing gift, not to mention a great way to get your name on a program that will be distributed to over 200 guests and the media. I am cutting and pasting a little note from her doctor if you would like to call and confirm that my mother has this fatal dibilitating disease. P.S. My sister gave up her job on Wall Street in New York to care for her mother and and I gave up my job, and walked away from my home (gave it back to the bank) to care for my mother, so we could sure use a break;

    Miss Holly,

    I am writing to let you know that an RN from Delmar Home care will be contacting you to set up a home visit for the wound assessment-they will let us know what orders we need to write after the wound has been assessed. There will also be a speech therapist contacting you to set up an assessment of her swallowing functions as well. This way we will be better prepared when you all come to clinic on the 25th.

    I am still unclear as to Janice’s decision on the feeding tube and I have yet to be given a copy of her living will or advance directives. They can be sent to our office fax 314-977-6086.

  647. Andrea  |  13 April 2008 at 9:40 PM

    Happy Anniversary!
    I love your beauty tips and advise.
    I’m not sure what I’d do if I didn’t have a little guidance like I’ve gotten. Whether I win or lose, I’ll still come back and read your advice tomorrow. (And the day after that.) =D
    Have a good one,

  648. Andrea  |  13 April 2008 at 9:53 PM

    Wow, am I totally dumb? I forgot to explain why I’d like to win. Of course, who wouldn’t want to win so many great prizes. I would especially because I am a teenage girl who, like many other women, feel the pressure to look “attractive.” But not only would I like a self-confidence boost, but I would love to spend a “day at the spa” relaxing, at home.

    Happy Anniversary.

  649. Robin McMillon  |  13 April 2008 at 9:55 PM

    I am the sister of Holly Steele and the daughter of Janice McMillon (the daughter of the women with ALS) our mother use to be a vibriant woman, we describe her as part Oprah and Part Martha Stewart. In less than a year our mother has lost her abilitly to walk, talk, or do anything for herself. I am a renter. so it took a lot for my sister to not only lose her home and walk away from her job to care for our mother, she unselfishly did this alone and cared for our mother 24 hours a day 7 days a week from August 12 until February 14, when I moved to St. Louis. I am trying to keep my apartment in New York, but I have yet to find a job. When i arrived in St. Louis I noted that my sister (who has the entire Victoria’s secret) collection had stop wearing clothes, she was so tired she would throw on a coat and go to the grocery and the pharmacy in her pajamas. She stopped combing her hair and started wearing hats (Even in the house) havind a fatal illness (An ALS patient has a lifespan of 2 -6 years) is bad enough, but I have to wonder, how many people ever think about the caregiver. As I type Holly and I are in Michigan. Since she gave her home back to the bank she has 7 days to retrieve her belongings. After she got off your website I got on, I think she could really use your products, and our mother as well, it really would lift our spirits and we would be happy to supply you with documentation verifying everything stated above. Thank you and Happy Birthday, Robin

  650. Nicole  |  13 April 2008 at 11:59 PM

    I’d like to win because I’d never get to try all that stuff otherwise. ^__^

  651. Mariah  |  14 April 2008 at 3:03 AM

    I’m a poor student! This would be such a dream come true! I love being involved with the beauty scene online, but it’s hard when you can never afford it! LOL! 😀

  652. Sandi  |  14 April 2008 at 1:49 PM

    I’m a new mommy all over again, and my sister will be too in a week! These products would be a huge blessing our lives! YAYAY for feeling and looking your best!

  653. Sarah  |  14 April 2008 at 3:24 PM

    Of course, a complete case continues to be a case and must be durable in addition to
    good-looking. Well, Zazzle provides that covered as its designer iPhone cases are built

    Case-Mate with a few of its most popular cases, like the lightweight
    “Barely There” case, the tough “Tough” case, and the even more durable “Hard Xtreme” case.
    And the aforementioned wood finish cases will be the work of Carved.
    Simultaneously, DodoCase and Powis offers the canvas for anybody wanting to switch an artwork into a case for an iPad.

The Daily Obsession draws from the expertise of a coast-to-coast editorial team offering dedicated readers reports of the most luxurious products and trends.
