GIVEAWAY CLOSED..
THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE ENTERED! <3

i don`t say this quite often enough, but thank you all so much for continuing to support this blog! my favoriteeee thing is seeing your comments, tweets, emails, etc. i couldn`t have asked for better followers (i hate that word btw, but i don`t have a better one at the moment!)..you guys are always so positive and enthusiastic, it makes me so happy to see that there are such great people out there. through this blog, i have made some amazing friends (you know who you are) and have been able to do and go to things i would otherwise not have been able to. so, i just wanted to take this quick moment to let you know that whether you reach out to me or not, your presence is known and very much appreciated.

the first winner will receive a gift card to customize their own erin condren life planner. as you all know by now, i would probably die without it. i use it to organize my, my boyfriend`s, and kimchi`s schedule as well as use it as a backup brain to help me remember what i did throughout the year! this winner will also receive some little things that i use to help me stay organized


the second winner will receive a gold sonia kashuk brush set & e.l.f nailpolish set. i love using brushes because my skin is sensitive. it helps me keep my makeup sanitary and also makes it more fun to get ready! i have this set myself and love that it`s such great quality! it`s a great starter kit as well as a great addition to any makeup collection!

here`s what you gotta do:
1. you have to be a US or Canadian resident (sorry, it`s only because of customs costs due to the fact that this is completely paid for and gifted by me.)
2. comment on this post..tell me something about yourself so i can get to know you better!

those are the only mandatory rules, but if you see below, you can increase your chances 3 other times! please note, you can only have a maximum of 4 chances. for example, if you tweet the contest every day, it still only counts as one entry. if you follow me on facebook, twitter, or tweet the giveaway, please let me know your fb/twitter handles in your comment below so i know who you are! a Rafflecopter giveaway

  1. Hi Lauren, been a fan of your blog for a while but never commented until now. I really love your effortless style. It's so chic and modern, but best of all, I think it's attainable (unlike some bloggers whose clothes are crazy expensive/rare!). You're a great inspiration and I hope I have a chance at this contest! Also, your depictions of Chicago look amazing.
    Best, Iris

    Woo!! What an awesome giveaway, you're truly awesome Honey Chu Chu!!!


    Now, something you don't know about me...well I like to sort out my candies. For example, with M&Ms I'll sort them by color and then I'll see how many of each I have. Then I'll eat them to make them all the same number. Once I get the numbers all the same, I'll eat them by favorite colors. I do that with skittles or any other colored candies. Haha, now the whole world will know this!

    Hey LC! I've been a fan of your blog and had the opportunity, thanks to Saha, to finally "meet" you and interact with you. You've helped me through so much, fashion-wise, beauty-wise, and I can't thank you enough. Absolutely an inspiration and someone to always look to for creativity. <3

    Thanks for such an awesome giveaway! I really enjoy reading your blog and guess what? I also have an obsession with bows! Love your Aminah Abdul Jilil bow sandals! I'm a girly girl (nails, mascara, girl talk..) and I hope to win the Erin Condren life planner to express my creativity and plan my life. Btw, your personality really comes through on your blog :) - Diane

    Hi Lauren! I love reading your blog, for the food, fashion, and especially the organization tips. One thing about me... I am a list person! I make a list for everything I have to do, buy, shop for, study, etc. I feel disoriented if I don't start my day off with a list.

    I've low key been following your blog for years and think it's the cutest. Your sense of fashion it too cute and you add that hotness edge with your amazing tattoos :p Hmm, now about me. I'm a nursing student gone business student, and I love blogging about life as a mother, girlfriend, college student in my spare time. I also have started to play around with makeup a little more (thanks youtube), and trying to "girly" up my wardrobe after getting comfy in Js, jeans, and tees all these years. P.S. I'm totally jealous of your shoe and bag collection and I want to still kimchi. Just sayin'

  11. Hi Lauren, as you know I love your blog! Thanks again for coming out to our show, the next time I'll definitely make time to actually chat with you. As far as a random fact about me...I partly love your blog because its not only fashion, but your lifestyle. I love the fact that you adore your pup so much cause I am a huge animal lover. Last year, my sugar glider (flying marsupial squirrel), Doug, of almost 9 years passed away and it was one of the hardest deaths I've ever dealt with. I intend on adopting another furry family member, but currently I am too busy with work! My fb is Paige Shin-ae Elizabeth Kang and my personal twitter handle is Love__Paige

  13. Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway!


    Random fact: I don't enjoy eating bananas on their own! It either has to be baked in to something or have some sort of spread slathered all over it.

  14. LC I love your blog and your style! A fact about me is that I named my car Blueberry.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yay!!! Great giveaway! Soooo useful and very LC =)
    A random fact about me is that I earned a BS in Statistics & Minor in Accounting. Gave that up, and went back to school to follow my dream to be an Interior Designer. Still trying to find my place in life, but loving the path I'm taking.
    Best wishes to you and your blog. You're AWESOME!!! Good luck to everyone =D

    Hi! I've recently discovered your blog and I creepily went through every single post b/c I love it and you (stalker? Style Stalker, perhaps). I'm a Miami girl and love seeing all of your Chicago based posts.

    I'm an attorney, hence the Fashionable ESQ (esquire) portion of my blog name.

  17. Thank you for doing this giveaway! Fact about me - I am OBSESSED with AllSaints and that is how I found your blog, by doing a google search for an AllSaints piece (forgot the name or what it was) about a year ago and I found a pic of you wearing it! <3

  21. I wish I had something interesting, but right now I don't. But something about me: I love concerts. I love music, in general, but I feel that concerts really help to enhance the experience. I would love to be able to work in that field someday!


    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! :)

  22. I always read your blog or check your instagram as a little pick-me-up when I'm feeling uninspired. A tidbit about me is I'm moving (from Canada) to Japan in early 2014. Love to win this giveaway

  24. Moo Young Baek12:36 PM CST

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway! I just moved to Seattle from Philly and I am definitely enjoying the blog. Keep up the styling!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi Lauren, I've really enjoyed keeping up with your blog. I think you keep your looks really simple and streamlined, which is how I usually like to dress myself, in a no-fuss type of way, but seeing you do it in a much more sophisticated way makes me feel like I can dress in a more sophisticated way too! I also like that you take selfies, albeit really glam ones, lol. I like your more professional photos, and I do like photoshoot type of blogs, but when you post selfies, it makes you seem more relatable to people who don't have the time (or the skills maybe, like me hehe) to devote to a full spread for an outfit. Some people only have time to snap a quick photo in front of the mirror and get out the door, but still want to share their fabulous outfit with the world.
    You probably don't remember this, but when I first started following your blog, I commented I liked one of your outfits, and you helped me find leather shorts on the world wide web aka virtual shopping mall and that convinced me that you're a nice and sweet person. =]
    and something about myself...um, I'm going to NYC for the first time in my life soon for vacation and I'm pretty excited, and I'm from SF, so that should help me rack up some frequent flier points. Also, I recently went to a health screening at work, and they said I was 5'2.5" and I've always been 5'2" so I grew half an inch! It's probably human error, because I most likely haven't grown in over 12 years, but I'll take that .5 inch. lol I'll shut up now. sorry I ramble.

  27. I really love your style Lauren. I, too, look at your blog when I'm feeling uninspired. About me...hm...I'm a big fan of football and although the Texans totally suck right now, I am still a loyal fan. :)

  28. Hi LC! I've been a big fan of your blog. You kimchi and your bf make such a cute lil fam!

    Something about me: i have a CKCS named Noel and my instagram pretty much only consists of photos of her... and food. haha (instagram id jaydotcee)

    ReplyDelete
  29. what a great giveaway! it's rare to see this kind of gratitude from bloggers nowadays…especially since this is a genuine gift from you (rather than a sponsored product courtesy of the company).
    your authenticity really comes through via your blog posts and I wish you a continued success!
    something about me: I'm a first-time mom to a beautiful 2-year old daughter who reminds me every day to be grateful for the simple things in life.
    (side note: when I got pregnant with my baby, I couldn't handle spicy foods, which is unheard of bc I'm Korean. This past month, I had my first bite of kimchi without doubling over with horrible stomach pains, which is a huge relief. bc, as you know, life is better with kimchi!)

  31. Yay for giveaways! You probably don't remember this but I still the email you sent me with all the restaurants you suggested and I try to go to at least one of them when I'm in Chicago. I absolutely loved the spicy pork rinds and everything at The Publican!

    A random fact - I break out into hives when I eat coconut or shrimp. However, there are only two shrimp dishes that I will risk the hives for - my dad's ketchup ginger shrimp and mayo shrimp.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I thought I'd posted a comment but maybe it didn't go through :( Thanks again for this giveaway!

    Random fact: I'm allergic to coconut and shrimp - I break out into hives when I eat it. However, the only two shrimp dishes I'll suffer through the hives for are my dad's ginger ketchup shrimp and mayo shrimp. Completely worth it!

    Hi Lauren! I'm Tricia. I've been following your blog for a while. I first came across it when Pam ( XppinkXx) gave you a shout! I saw you were a fellow Doggy mommy with awesome style and I was hooked! I follow you on all the social platforms- I know. I love your style! It's very downtown sophistication. It's my goal to restyle my wardrobe to fit in the medschool style standard, but on my strict budget. I try to take notes cause your girl was dressing like Molly the maid. What can I say? I'm learning! About me? Hmmm...I like black cars and white sheets. I've only ever had 2 boyfriends in my entire 26 years of life- no guy ever believes me. I have 3 tattoos and counting- I love ink! I take planning extra serious- I use post-it's as additional planning tools. I'm not kidding. I can't do my own hair to save my life!I'm 5'8 1/2in tall, and I feel like a bear around other women. I love that Kimchi's name is Kimchi! What made you name him Kimchi? My baby's ( my Matlese-American lol) was name Prince William. Not after the Prince of the UK, but after Prince as in Purple Rain, and William just cause I like the name. He passed this October :-(. I have Celiac disease. I always prefer to get big bills from the bank when I'm budgeting. Nothing makes you slow down on purchases quite like watching someone break your Benjamin and give you change! Trust! I have the flattest booty of any Afro-Brazilian girl ever, but I can twerk. JK, I can't twerk lol! Thanks for reading ! ^_^

  39. I love your sense of fashion and I like following your blog because I'm from Chicago too. Something about myself is that I'm trying to start up a blog as well, mostly about food, at http://fromchicago-withlove.blogspot.com. Thank you for this giveaway!

  43. Hi Lauren,

    ReplyDelete
  63. loving concerts and music IS interesting! i think people don`t appreciate the art of music as much anymore (and kind of for good reason with all these "kids" out there now). i used to play classical piano for over 10 years!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  71. ah! i`m glad your comment finally went through! writing dates on your beauty things is such a smart idea! i need to do that because sometimes i hoard them just `cause they`re pretty! weird thing..but i love leftys! i originally was, but because of a chinese superstition..my parents switched me to being a righty. sometimes i get confused and instinctively use my left hand! i`m still bitter about it haha.

  81. thank you so much for appreciating the giveaway! i do this truly for you guys! i`m so touched by your comment, it`s so endearing to hear. thank you again for being so sweet! congratulations on your baby girl! my boyfriend`s best friend just had her baby girl and i fell in love with her already! i also can`t really handle spicy foods! everyone in my family can except for me..i can barely even eat the meat at chipotle! but ever since i started dating the boyf (he`s korean), i`ve been loving kimchi jjigae!

    ReplyDelete
  82. i do remember the leather shorts! thank you so so much for following me for so long! i love hearing feedback and your comments are always the sweetest..just like this one! readers like you are the reason i continue to update! i wish you the best time in nyc! i went once in the last five years, but it wasn`t so fun..so i`d love to go back! san francisco is such a beautiful city! i haven`t beem back since i was little, but i remember it being one of my favorite places! yay for growing a little taller! you should know i hate odd numbers by now..so being 5'3" kills me! i always wish i was 5'2"!

    Hi Lauren!

    I absolutely love your blog :) Your style is killer and I'm super impressed that you use an agenda/planner, too! My parents are always nagging at me for still using paper to organize my life, so it's cool to know I'm not the only one who still prefers paper.

    It's absolutely lovely of you to offer a giveaway :)

  91. thanks janine! i remember things better visually, so it`s much better when i write things down! i think you should do whatever you know works for you! it`s easy to get sucked into electronics..but what happens if your battery dies, you lose your phone, or it gets wiped out?! i`ll always be pro-writing forever!

  94. Hi Lauren, I'm a huge fan of your blog and style. A random fact about me is that I usually eat anything for breakfast. People think it's weird that I can gobble down things like pizza, eggs, leftover chinese food, etc in the a.m. Don't get me wrong, I'll still eat "breakfast" items as well, I'm an equal opportunity food eater. lol! Thank you so much for doing this giveaway!

  96. hi ani! i`m just like you! if it`s edible, it`s definitely breakfast-able! breakfast is actually my favorite type of food, but i ususally go plain..2 eggs, hash, and ketchup!

  98. I love your style! The tats and the hair and your simple yet elegant clothing.Very effortless chic. I have purchased a few things at your recommendation, or that you have worn. Have a fabulous Christmas and New Years! I can't wait to see the pics of the awesome food from the parties you attend. Cheers!


    As for my "about me" I live in FL and I am really into a leather/combat boots/plaid/denim look right now. I just chopped my hair into the Julianne Hough bob, which I am loving. I just bought a red plaid skirt from ASOS which I wore with combat boots and a feminine black sweater to a holiday party. I love the tough with soft look.I def use your blog for inspiration!

  99. thank you for reading my blog! seems like we are both into styles with an edge! did you have long hair before chopping it? i did that once..i had the victoria beckham pob..and with super blonde hair too! it was so fun, but i don`t think i have the courage to do it again! it must be so nice living in fl..it`s getting so cold here! that look sounds so fun..i would love to see it! thank you again!!

  100. Yesss, my hair was past my bra strap, almost to my bottom. It was on point too, regular trims and glosses every 3 months without fail. It just wasn't fun anymore. It took forever to dry and style. I was slacking a lot, putting it in buns and it is sooo hot in FL. I took Julianne's pic to my stylist and got her exact cut. It works well with my texture. Sexy messy or sleek if I wanna work at it. It totally changed my face and looks surprisingly feminine which is good since I dress like a punk rock lumberjack :)
