Fashionista in the Kitchen Giveaway

I really don’t know about all of you, but the moment fall rolls around I have one thing on my mind, and one thing only; and that, darlings, is food. There’s something about the crisp autumn weather that instantly makes me think of home-cooked meals that are hearty and yummy. I blame it on the sheer fact that so many activities that take place during the fall season revolve around food. We have trips to the pumpkin patch and the apple orchard; trick or treating dressed in kitschy costumes where we literally beg for sugary surprises from strangers; and, above all else, the Thanksgiving feast.

But I digress, once such festivities are over we always manage to find ourselves the victims of too tight jeans and frumpy feelings and thoughts. To Mireille Guiliano, such things are repulsive and frowned upon. In her world, such musings do not cross one’s mind, for she knows the proper way to eat your heart out and still feel fabulous. And she wants to teach you how to do the same.

You knew it was coming, I’m sure…Café Fashionista has teamed up with Vintage Books to bring three (3) ravenous readers the chance to fill up on recipes galore from a true Parisian via French Women Don’t Get Fat a true essential for the fashionista who counts herself as both a Francophile and a foodie.

To enter the Fashionista in the Kitchen Giveaway:

For one (1) entry, leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, November 19, 2009 at midnight PST.

For two (2) entries, Twitter about this giveaway, and leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, November 19, 2009 at midnight PST with your Twitter URL.

For three (3) entries, become a follower of Café Fashionista on Blogger/Google Reader, and leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, November 19, 2009 at midnight PST (if you are already a Café Fashionista follower, please say so in your comment).

I will randomly pick one name out of a hat (who knows, it could be yours!), and announce the winner on Friday, November 20, 2009.

Good luck everyone!

And yes, this Giveaway is open to everyone – U.S. or International residents!


Fashionably yours!

Couture Cookie said...

I love food too... unfortunately. My problem is I don't cook, so I basically live on fruit, veggies and crackers. I could certainly use some inspiration in the kitchen!

Also, I'm already a follower of your blog but I don't do Twitter - Blogger and FB are distracting enough for me! Have a great weekend! :)
