The Haute Hostess Giveaway

Dolls, it should come as no surprise to you that I absolutely adore the smell of fresh-baked desserts; unfortunately I’m a complete disaster in the kitchen, and am downright incapable of whipping them up myself. That, of course, has never stopped me from trying to become the haute hostess that I’ve always longed to be. But alas, my attempts at success have never really come to fruition; yet I am convinced that my luck would change if armed with a sassy weapon…like a cute apron! I can’t help but feel that a pretty apron has the power to completely change one’s culinary skills; to give a girl the confidence to take her cooking capabilities to new heights. And now one (1) of you aspiring chic chefs has the chance to take one of your very own home.

It’s true my loves! Café Fashionista has teamed up with Flirty Aprons to bring one (1) of you lucky lovelies the cuter than cute Women’s Apron Original Frosted Cupcake – a dreamy cupcake-covered, pastel hued pretty that is an absolute must in one’s kitchen!

To Enter the Haute Hostess Giveaway:

For one (1) entry, leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, January 21, 2010 at midnight PST.

For two (2) entries, Twitter about this giveaway, and leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, January 21, 2010 at midnight PST with your Twitter URL.

For three (3) entries, become a follower of Café Fashionista on Blogger/Google Reader/Google Friend Connect, and leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, January 21, 2010 at midnight PST (if you are already a Café Fashionista follower, please say so in your comment).

I will randomly pick one (1) name out of a hat (who knows, it could be yours!), and announce the winner on Friday, January 22, 2010.

Good luck everyone!

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


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Flirty Aprons for the picture.

You are so cute! I'm a disaster in the kitchen too... thank God for Lean Cuisine frozen meals. I wouldn't even try to make cupcakes or anything remotely similar.

But even disasters like me need cute aprons! I'm already a follower, as you know. Have a great weekend, xoxoxox.

The Haute-Shopper said...

Oh my goodness, this is so adorable! Fab giveaway! The only thing that would make baking cupcakes more fun would be wearing this!

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Jacqueline said...

The apron is so cute, but I can just imagine how dirty it would get when I make manicotti. I would love it anyway! xoxo

Aaaah! How much do I adore this apron? I'm just getting into baking - I got lots of baking-related things for Christmas including a darling polka dot tin and some cute silicone bun cases. This apron would just finish off my 50s housewife look!

Joanne said...

Fashion does influence how we feel about ourselves. So maybe you're on to something, a stylish apron to inspire our culinary skills!

I love great kitchen aprons. Have I ever told you my mother was a pastry chef? She would have loved this post. Take care, dear!

polka dot said...

How funny, that's my other pet name for people ('cupcake'), I even spent six long months almost starting an organic shea butter skin care line with a 2nd cousin, called cupcake cosmetics. (Actually, even tho I'm not doing it, the products from the supplier in Kansas are GREAT - I still use them, so does my mom. She just ordered more from me. It's on my blog roll as 'Shea Essence' if you're interested. I get these yummy scented skin creams & put them in my own glass jars.)

I think I might have become a follower for like the third time. I've just won a contest, maybe i'm on a roll! ; ) xox
