Valentine's Day giveaway: PH8 Tote Bag

Heya! Happy almost Valentine's Day! A friend hooked me up with this super-cute pink and white PH8 tote bag, so I thought I'd give it to one of my beloved FnF readers.

Enter to win by telling me:

1. Things you love. It could be your boyfriend, your worn-in American Apparel hoodie, flannel PJs, your sister, cold pizza, running in the park, mint chocolate chip ice cream....or, um, ME, Fired 'n' get the idea ;)

2. Your favorite magazines

3. Do you think love lasts? This has been an ongoing question over at one of my favorite blogs, Imboycrazy, and I'd love to hear your thoughts, too!

4. Your favorite romance movie

Later on today I'll be posting a vid of a short film about Valentine's Day my Godfather won an award for at the Sundance Film Festival years ago. It's so cute, creative and totally quirky. I love it, and I think you will too, so check back in!


  1. HI Ellen! Happy Valentine's Day Weekend! : )

    1. I love my friends, my family, my cat and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
    2. Favorite Magazines: The Washingtonian and I will have to add US Weekly because I subscribe!
    3. Love lasts - but you can't sit back and let love be. You have to work at it.
    4. My favorite romance movie - When Harry Met Sally

  2. 1. As much as I love lazy days cuddled up in a comfy bed, I really love being outdoors, experiencing something new and moving my body!
    2. I love Self Magazine, Fitness Magazine, Health Magazine and--occasionally--some trashy tabloids.
    3. I think love can last, but it is constantly evolving, so it takes effort to make it work.
    4. Not the most happy ending, but I am a sucker for "Titanic." (I wouldn't suggest watching that on Valentine's Day, however!"

  3. 1. I love naps, my family and friends, the sun, and shopping with gift cards.
    2. I love Glamour and looking at gossip mags while standing in the check out line.
    3. I think love works as long as you both are always working at it together.
    4. The notebook or gone with the wind. Classic heartbreakers/nearjerkers.

    No snow here... you girls stay warm and have a wonderful weekend of love ;)

  4. 1. Finding money in the pockets of your favorite jeans after doing your laundry. Not only are your jeans clean and ready for a week or two of wear, but you reunite with funds you thought you spent.

    2. Glamour is the most real/accurate women's magazine out there. Self and Oprah are also great. Most women's magazines portray women as people, not fierce cat-like, slutty dumb temptresses. And for a guilty pleasure, there is nothing like whipping open the latest issue of People (and sometimes US).

    3. There is no doubt in my mind that love lasts. Love can endure anything thrown at it if it faces it with understanding, a sense of humor and a lot of patience.

    4. My fave romance movies are Sleepless in Seattle, Love Actually, and The Goodbye Girl. I can't choose one. I'm a sucker for when woman is neurotic and the leading man messes up in sweet naive ways...

    and on that note, I am off to see Valentine's Day. I know it's going to be terrible... but it's Gal-entine's Day and it's only right to celebrate with a proper chick flick!

  5. 1) I love my family, friends and pets along with my Harley.
    2) My favorite Magazine is family fun
    3) I have been married for 22 years, and I believe not only does love last, but that mine will. My mom and dad were married for 48 years before my mom passed away. I can only hope I get to stay with my sweetie that long.

  6. Hey Ellen! Sorry, I'm late. I was out of town last week for work, so this weekend was spent catching up on my zzzz's. Hope you had a great weekend. :)

    1. I love leggings and soft tee shirts, my dogs Finley and Wilson, eating, watching movies on tv when you own the dvd, hearing little kids laugh & giggle, and more than anything, my family.

    2. My favorite magazine is US, because I can count on it arriving every Thursday or Friday.

    3. I know that love lasts... sometimes you have to work at it, but it does last. It's so apparent every time I talk to my mom. My dad passed away nearly 10 years ago, and my mom still hasn't "moved on". If you ever ask if she will re-marry or date again she always responds, "I'm still in love with your father."

    4. Love Actually

  7. I know I am late, but here you go:

    1. I love my husband, soft t-shirts, New Orleans, holidays, mimosas, dresses, manicures and getting mail.

    2. My favorite mags are Glamour, Instyle and Real Simple.

    3. Yes I believe that love lasts, it can be hard, but that spark is always there.

    4. Sleepless in Seattle, Gone with the Wind, Love Actually, Breakfast at Tiffany's, When Harry Met Sally, The Graduate (not your typical romance)

  8. Aww you guys are so cute! I love your answers for #3...I'm glad you're not jaded and believe in love as much as I do :) Hello, does anyone like Notting Hill?!

  9. 1. I love: My fiance, my evil kitten Marvin, my unfailingly supportive family, Wingstreet Boneless Medium wings from Pizza Hut, playing squash poorly and having laughing fits, lululemon athletica sports wear, lots of stuff I'll never afford, and the list goes on.

    2. I subscribe to Glamour magazine (really wish I could get the UK version, though), read Cosmopolitan on occasion, as well as O Magazine.

    3. Love lasts when it's right and when both parties recognize that compromise is a must,and that you may not always feel IN love. It's work, and you fall in and out of that passionate type of love while always loving the other person in some way.

    4. I recently caught Four Weddings and a Funeral - shows that you have to follow your heart and intuition.
