February GIVEAWAY!

Happy weekend, everyone! If you’re faced with impending bad weather back east or anxiously awaiting Fashion Week (which could be impacted by the bad weather) I have something to cheer you up. As next week is scheduled to be Fall 2013 Fashion Week in NYC—which will actually make sense if they have snow, I thought I’d offer a stylish giveaway for one of my readers. Recently, I reviewed The Style Mentors and Lessons from Madame Chic, two new, charming yet very practical looks at style—what it means, how to find yours, and how to integrate it in your life. Nothing too hoity-toity, mind you, just really good and useful light reading. I mean, really, how can you go wrong with tons of photos of well-dressed, famous fashionistas with tips on how to cultivate your own style? Or, a look at how Parisians view style and live by it? If you want to read more about either book click on the title link for my review.
 
 
 
 
 
If these books sound like great reading (and they are!) then you’ll be happy to know that for a minimum of effort you could win both! I’m even giving you a number of options for winning. Pick one (or more, nothing wrong with that!), then leave a quick comment so I know you entered.
 
  1. if you love books and haven’t already you can subscribe to The Gilmore Guide to Books. It’s blessedly pain-free: you’ll only get an email when I post a new review. Go to my site via the link above and enter your email address in the box above the Subscribe button.
  2. Join me on Facebook. Again, you won’t be deluged with status updates and kitschy stuff (OK, there may be a few adorable photos of cats and books but only a few). Go to your Facebook account, search The Gilmore Guide to Books and when my page comes up, click on the LIKE button.
  3. If you’re on Twitter and wouldn’t mind a bit more varied chatter from The Gilmore Guide then go to twitter and follow me: @GilmoreGuide. Again, I’m not posting about what I had for breakfast (unless it was REALLY good or ended up on my sweat pants) but my tweets are a bit more off the cuff and combine my interest in books with fashion, pop culture, food, Portland, and wine. Nothing too onerous. 
There you have it! Three ways to win two fabulous books for free. Given the hinky weather, upcoming romantic holiday, and other vagaries I’m going to pick one random winner on the 28th. That gives all of you time to enter and gives me time to get my Spring Fashion trends, picks and pans, as well as favorite collections pulled together AND means one of you will have something to look forward to in March. Enter now!

Just put Lessons from Madame Chic on hold at the library after seeing your post. Looks like a fun read.
