I'm BACK! And a GiGi New York Wallet Giveaway

In answer to the inevitable question you’ve been asking yourself for the past ten days, no, I am NOT dead! I’m just lazy, and while some people can’t always distinguish the difference, there is one defining characteristic that separates the two states of being: online shopping. You thought I was going to say breathing, didn’t you? Well, to be alive IS to shop! And to be able to do it from your comfy couch, whilst donning stretchy harem pants with pockets (yes!) and your nerdy glasses because, since you’re lazy, you still haven’t gotten lasik and knowing that all your favorite online haunts have your credit card numbers saved so you don’t even have to stand up to walk the three feet to get your wallet out of your purse, well, that’s just icing on the consumer confidence cake.

What I’m trying to say is, I’m sorry for the absence, but I think you’ll agree that now that I’m back (and I promise, I’m really back—lots of good stuff lined up, including my Blueprint Cleanse experience recap), I’m practically better than ever. I say “practically” because, really, how can you improve on perfection? But enough self-promotion. What I really wanted to get to was another fantastic giveaway from my favorite Fine Leatha’ Goods retailer, GiGi New York.

You know I’m obsessedies with my All in One Clutch, so when the kind folks from GiGi offered to give away one of their gorgeous folding leather wallets to a very luck CupcakesOMG! Reader, I was basically doing back flips across the living room. Incidentally, the fact that I never learned how to do a back flip in gymnastics as a child had a lot to do with why I quit gymnastics. Nevermind that I was 5! I had drive and ambition!! And also that thing I said about being lazy before…I dunno, somewhere up there.
 I chose a wallet in black to match my All in One, natch, but they come in a slew of gorgeous colors, including their new metallics for the holidays! One of the things I love best about this wallet, aside from its gold leather interior, is its size. When I go out for a special occasion, I typically remove my ID, credit cards, and cash form my wallet because it’s simply too large to fit in my smaller “going out” bags. Not the case with the folding GiGi wallets—they’re compact but they have room for everything, including all those credit cards your computer autosaves when you shop online.
So, do you want one of these wallets for yourself? Or maybe you want one to gift to your mom, sister, or bestie for the holidays?? Well, it’s very simple. There are only two requirements:
  • Follow CupcakesOMG! via the Google Friend Connect button on the upper right side of the screen.
  •  Leave me a comment with the color wallet you love best, and your email address so I can notify you if you win!
You can score additional entries if you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram—just leave an additional comment for each additional entry notifying me you’ve done it. Giveaway runs through next Tuesday at 12 PM EST, when I'll choose a winner at random and reach out to you via email!

*We’re kinda on the honor system here because I think those rafflecopter tracker things are a big pain in the ass. THIS IS FOR YOU!!! In the words of RuPaul, don’t fuck it up!

Umm hi. Firstly, I'd like to draw attention to the fact that you have chosen to post this at 9:18, which is my birthday, which is.. A huge sign. A huge, metallic gold covered shimmering if-it-were-still-the-90's-would-be-bedazzled SIGN that this prize should go to your fave pastry chef. I have my Christmas company party outfit all planned out down to the colors on my tippy toes peeking out of my peep toed holiday heels! But what I don't have yet is a beautiful little gold accessory to carry around. I guess what I'm saying is... Why are you still reading this mumbling bumbling comment? Pick me!!

Gayla said...

Uh, as your mom I'm pretty sure I'm exempt from this little contest, but you could always buy me one...in gold...just sayin'...I'm your mom...

mirandamoriah said...

Ooookay, so it's not my birthday. That's hard to compete with, but I love the Fuchsia one! I love anything pink and all things girly :)

I quit ballet at 5, because we didn't wear tutus in our recital - we wore fisherman outfits. I mean come on, what's the point of ballet if you don't get to wear a tutus?

Gorgeous wallet.

Also, I love the classic black.
