Shh! I have a secret to tell you!

There’s this contest going on, and only a few people know about it, you’re one of them because you read my blog. (LUCKY YOU!)

In September I gave away memberships to Maghound, like Netflix only for magazines. Well the giveaway just got sweeter.

They’re offering you, as a reader of moosh in indy, the chance to win a MAGnificent makeover in NYC. Basically any human being’s dream come true. If it’s not your dream come true? You may not be human. But I’m sure you could make something work.

win a trip to NYC with me!

You and a guest, two nights paid trip to NYC, a makeover with an editor from People StyleWatch and a $1,500 shopping spree as well. (!!!!!)

Three other winners will win a $100 gift card to either Sephora or Macy*s. (!!!)


You can enter once per day per email address everyday between now and December 15, 2009. What’s more is when you enter you’ll automatically get one month of Maghound service free as well as 20% off your first six months of Maghound service.


This contest is only being advertised on 22 other blogs. When you enter you’ll be asked where you found out about the contest. You enter moosh in indy, and if you win? I GET TO GO WITH YOU AND DOCUMENT THE WHOLE DARN THING! Like your own personal blogger paparazzi! I’ll even bring my big camera and chase you down the streets of NYC calling your name! (And you still get to bring a guest of your choosing!)

I’m very fun in NYC. Which is why you should enter and win. Seriously, nothing to lose, fabulous hair (and wardrobe!) to gain. GO! NOW! (Dear FTC-I’m not being paid for this. Or bribed. I like Maghound. I like NYC. I like to give stuff away and I like it even more when people I know win.)


    Ok, pardon my all caps there, I got real excited. πŸ™‚

  2. I was just thinking, “I wish I could win a trip to New York.” Crazy! Let’s win this thing!

  3. I’m very nearly at a total loss for words..


    and thank you, with love.

  4. *annoying girly squeal*

    Could I love any city in america as much as I love NYC? Not one that I’ve been to.

    And in case you didn’t know, meeting you has recently been put on my list of things to do before I die.

    Yeah, I’ll probably enter.

  14. Oh my goodness, getting to go to NYC with Casey? I don’t remember which is more exciting πŸ˜‰

  15. I have never been to NYC and a makeover to top it off this would be a dream!

    Jenny Reply:

    @Jenny, Plus if I won I would finally get to meet you! That would be awesome!

  16. Everyone is better in NYC.

    I’d so love to go, but since I’m gestating and would prefer a makeover sans hugeness, I’ll be leaving this contest to everyone else.

    But I’ll be SO wishing it was me.

  17. Entered. Thx for the heads up.

  18. Eeeee!!! This is awesome! I hope I win, but if I don’t I hope one of your other readers does!!!

  19. I thought I would enter in order to give everyone else a chance at fun and beauty. ‘Cuz, like, I never win.

  20. Entered. Fingers (and toes) crossed. Wishing. Hoping. Praying.

  21. Ooooh how FUN!!!

  22. BIG droopy ugly cry sad face with tears. <– Canadian… *sobs* This really IS the best contest ever. Sigh.

  23. You know what’s really starting to irk me? I can NEVER win one of your fab contests! Sure, I could enter to win on some other website, but I really only want you chasing me through New York with your giant camera in hand.

  24. I never enter these things, but hells bells, I’m going to hit this one a few times.

    Also, when are you coming to dinner?

  25. Happy b-day to your adorable offspring!
