We've got some VIP tickets to the Luxe Life event on April 25 that are just burning a hole in our little pockets. So we're going to give a pair away sometime today, plus more later—but you have to follow us on Twitter. The tickets'll give you access to shopping discounts, beauty deals, spa treatments, yummy munchies, plus you'll go home with a gift bag full of swag. [previously]
