The Seasonable Fashionista Giveaway

Darlings, need I remind you that, while each and every one of us favors a particular time of year (for me, it’s fall!), we must welcome all four seasons with open arms, and accept the special gift proffered from them all. As Yoko Ono once said, “Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.” These are words to live by, my loves, as they are an uncomplicated way of shedding light upon the beauty of life – year-round!

I know, I know; you may find it simpler to cook the hearty meals required to get you through a long winter, or perhaps dressing for the sultry summer is more appealing than layering for the cool chill of fall. Regardless of your preference, surviving twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three-hundred and sixty-five days a year is possible – at least according to Mireille Guiliano. Brace yourselves, kitty cats…something wondrous this way comes.

In true seasonable style, Café Fashionista has teamed up with Vintage Books to bring not one, not two, but three (3) of you lovable lambs Mireille Guiliano’s French Women for All Seasons; a follow-up to her bestseller French Women Don’t Get Fat, full to the brim with yummy recipes, and even yummier tips on entertaining, grooming, shopping, exercising, cooking, and everything in between to ensure that you live your life to the fullest from beginning to end!

To Enter The Seasonable Fashionista Giveaway:

For one (1) entry, leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, March 25, 2010 at midnight PST.

For two (2) entries, Twitter about this giveaway, and leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, March 25, 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/Twitter, and leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday, March 25, 2010 at midnight PST (if you are already a Café Fashionista follower, please say so in your comment).

I will randomly pick three (3) names out of a hat (who knows, one of them could be yours!), and announce the winners on Friday, March 26, 2010.

Good luck everyone!

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


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to The Hippo for the picture.

I love the summer. It's like Ada Louise Huxtable said: Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world.
