Tell Us Your Crush For Our Valentine’s Day Contest, Win Prizes!


Happy Valentine’s day week, almost! I know some of you are probably in relationships. That is fine. Some of you are probably not in relationships. That is also fine.

However I hope everyone IN THE WORLD has some manner of unrequited crush. If you do not have one, that is not fine, you should cultivate one immediately. If you need an incentive to do so, we’re giving away a fantastic pack of perfume prizes.

All you need to do is e-mail Jennifer [at] and write 600 to 800 words about your crush. And, of course, tell us your full name, mailing address, and birthdate (so we know where to send the prizes to) as well as the name you’d like the piece published under (if you’d like to keep it anonymous, we understand). We will post your submissions through Valentine’s day week, and vote for the best one at the week. In addition to glory, the winner will receive:

Price: 1.7 fl. oz – $52

Heidi Klum’s new fragrance. Surprise! by Heidi Klum
Price: 1.0 fl. oz. – $28

SOUL2Soul Vintage by Faith Hill
Price: 1.0 fl. oz. – $24.50

Closer by Halle Berry
Price: 1.7 fl oz – $35

If you need inspiration on crushes you might have some of mine, in no particular order:

Jeremy Irons. Forever, apparently.


Max Irons. Maybe? Feels weird but right.


Gordon Gekko


Jay Gatsby


J. Pierpont Morgan


I guess any character on The Hour, honestly, any of them, even the women.


Brian Williams, but that is like the blogger equivalent of saying “George Clooney.” Everyone loves Brian Williams. He is hilarious.


Scrooge McDuck in non-duck form.

If you write about any of these people, I will push very hard for you to win, but also, I will have to duel with you for their imaginary love. So, trade-offs.

      Adam Levine!!! He is so hot. Not only does he look good, but he is talented. His expert opinions on the Voice are so helpful to all the contestants.
      I might add, I’m old enough to be his mother, but he may not know it, but a lot of women in my age group agree with me.
      His face is actually on a ornament that is a small Christmas tree. My co-worker gave it to me last Christmas. This small tree is on a stick that is stuck in plant in my office. It’s Christmas everyday, just being able to look at him!!!!

      I have a HUGE crush on Beck. I saw his Midnight Vultures concert in Dallas and swear he was gyrating toward me. I swear! Don’t even try to tell me any different- my husband constantly tells people we were seated way too far back for this to be true – but he’s just jealous. :)

      My hugest crush is MATHEW MCCONAUGHEY. He is totally hot, and
      seems to be down to earth and smart. I have watched all of his movies
      just to see him. He’s a great actor too!
