Last week, we had a $50 gift card for BedHead Pajamas! Congratulations to user peacefulangie! Angie, I've sent you an email with all the details, but if you haven't received a note by next Tuesday (the 29th), send me a shout-out at

While I never quite get the chance to escape traffic in LA, I'm already worried about what holiday traffic will mean this weekend. With Labor Day on Monday, there's no better time to step away and take a break from your normal workweek. The laundry can wait, and you don't need to spend all day slaving in the kitchen. Now, where's the beach bag? If you're headed to the ocean, I'd recommend getting there early this weekend. Follow the locals, and don't be afraid to walk a bit. The beach is often super crowded right near the parking lot for a reason.

If you're headed to a cookout, don your favorite floppy hat and sundress. This weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, and it's time to peel back the winter layers. However, I'd recommend slathering on the sunscreen, especially if this is first time your legs have seen sunlight in months. And if you're rocking a faux glow, remember- that spray tan isn't going to save you from skin damage.

What other accessories do you need for the beach or pool? Well, Easter may have been last month, but we're still dreaming of the crystallized sugar and marshmallow whip that make a Peep. While you may want to stock up on the sticky treats during Easter, you can still enjoy their cute faces year round. This week, we're giving away $50 worth of Peeps swag, filled with a beach towel, lunch bag, stainless steel water bottle, and a plush mini clip.

To win, leave us a comment below by midnight on Thursday, May 31st. We'll announce a winner next Friday. Good luck!
