You can enter between April 7th, and April 25th, 2010. Users can vote on their favorite bags, and the grand prize winner will be selected based on the 50 favorites as voted by users.

  • Grand Prize Winner: $2,000 Bloomingdale’s shopping spree AND their bag will be produced by Rebecca Minkoff and sold exclusively at bloomingdales.com. (Winner is chosen by Rebecca Minkioff and a panel of fashion experts.)

  • Daily Winner: $100 Bloomingdale’s shopping spree will be awarded once a day.

You can see my design above… THE MELLANATOR! aka Mellan on the bag, because I’m an obsessive dog owner like that :) He’s green… well, he’s sitting on a bunch of green, enjoying life, happy as can be… It’s probably one of my favorite photos of him EVER, so it would be totally rockin’ to see him on a bag.

I’d love to see yours, so link me to your entry in the comments!

Balenciaga Giveaway

Win Balenciaga Paris!

I’ve been playing with this scent this past week, and it’s a sensual, sophisticated scent for spring. It’s a soft violet tempered by a woodier, muskier base. It’s a lighter scent that wears well throughout the day, but it’s not overwhelming. Definitely feminine but not girly or candy-sweet–grown-up without being totally on the edge.   And now, Temptalia is giving one away!

One (1) lucky Temptalia reader will win a bottle of Balenciaga Paris Eau de Parfum! (Retail value $130.)

Immediately, the demure violet note makes us think that BALENCIAGA PARIS is a light fragrance, as pleasant as sunshine. In BALENCIAGA PARIS, we find the first moments of April, floral breezes and blossoms from milder days. A spring-like feel: airy dresses and fleeting glances. A bouquet of violets also has an old-fashioned tone, the antique charm of a few dried petals that we find between the pages of a book by Colette, traces of memories, the work of art so fine that is the past

But soon, a peppery note reveals itself and swells over calm, mossy wood. Foliage that breathes in the secret hours of night. Then, another more nocturnal facet of nature expresses itself. A sensuality becomes clearer. The shadowy color of the liquid within already says something of its mystery.
It is a fragrance full of light with a few dark apertures. BALENCIAGA PARIS is a lovely paradox. It is a fragrance that becomes life, that melds with living. BALENCIAGA PARIS offers itself and guards itself…

How to win: Leave a comment sharing with me why you love to wear perfume!

All entries must be submitted by April 12th, 2010 at 11:59 PM PST. This contest is open to U.S. readers only as pursuant to your local state/country’s laws. Winner will be chosen randomly and notified via e-mail. This post will be updated with “winner chosen” when one has been chosen.

Congratulations to Steph Z.!
