REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: BassBuds in-ear headphones

by thedemuremuse on May 13, 2014

Headphones are pretty much the bane of my existence. I’ve had such a hard time with them in the last three years, where I’ve had to replace 4 pairs in that timeframe. I’m not hard on them by any means, but I wear them often (commuting to and from work, weekend runs, and most recently while commuting between countries and cities on the tube).

This pair of BassBuds couldn’t have come at a better time, as my previous pair of headphones went kaput a week before this package arrived! I received a pair of limited edition, 24k gold plated, high performance ear buds with crystal accents. I have never gotten compliments on headphones before, but this pair is particularly hard to miss! One of my coworker jokes that I must be taking fashion too seriously now that my headphones match my watch haha!


My favourite thing about these headphones, aside from being stylish, is the fact that there’s a mic and play/pause buttons built right into the tangle-free cord. You have no idea how many pairs of headphones I’ve gotten tangled in the past while running and then having to stop to untangle the mess is such a time sink. I can also easily take calls without having to stop to pull my phone out to answer it (buttons on cords… super nifty!).

BassBuds is offering up a pair of these beautiful limited edition ear buds to one lucky winner!

Disclosure: I received these ear buds courtesy of BassBuds for a review. All opinions are my own.

GIVEAWAY: London Retro glasses of your choice!

by thedemuremuse on January 6, 2014

Let’s start the new year out with a fun giveaway, shall we? Right before the holidays, I did a review for a pair of BABS frames from London Retro. I fell in love with the vintage-feel of these frames and loved their unique design. As a huge lover of eyewear, I can’t say how liberating it feels for glasses so be so much more accessible these days. Instead of having to wear a single pair of frames for 3+ years, companies have been driving the prices of eyewear to a point where it’s now possible to buy more than a pair a year, which is pretty great for someone who likes to change things up in the accessories department!

London Retro has a modest selection of curated, uniquely vintage-themed frames that are perfect for any season. Today I’m offering a chance to win a pair of glasses (of your choice!), including Rx! What a great way to kick off the new year!

GIVEAWAY: 5 pairs of Wits + Beaux socks (5 winners)

by thedemuremuse on September 16, 2013

A couple weeks ago, I posted a review for bold socks offered by Wits + Beaux with the help of my friend who has made it a regular habit of wearing bold socks every Friday. Thanks to the sweet team behind Wits + Beaux, this month I’m giving away a pair of socks to 5 lucky readers!! How awesome is that? As someone who loves a fun pair of socks, I can’t tell you how jealous I am for the winners of this contest! Wits + Beaux’s designs are great and make me wish I had bigger feet (uhh, maybe not bigger than they are now… I take it back) so I could wear these!

Here’s another fun, but more casual, styling of the Hero socks that you could win for yourself, or for that special guy in your life:
