Lula Giveaway

Saturday, 1 May 2010


Here's my surprise, I'm giving away a copy of Lula with the Orange Blossom cover to one of you.

When I lived in small-town Manitoba, it was impossible to get a copy of Lula, but Anabela would send one to me every time it came out. I would love to pass on her kindness and send a copy to someone else who can't find one.

I love Lula for it's unabashed celebration of femininity and pretty things.
To enter let me know about your favorite girly thinks, leave your info and I will draw a winner on Friday, May 7, 2010.

My favorite girly things include painting my nails crazy colors, wearing footwear that looks good, but is not good for me and frilly dresses.

Favourite girly things: sighing wistfully over boys and unrequited whatever, painting each nail a different colour but unifying them with a sparkling top coat (it's spring, I feel entitled), baking non-stop, wearing an apron when I clean.

Yep.

I love long hair, pearls, heels, painted nails, white dresses, makeup, and bikinis.

oh, how lovely! I've been wanting to capture a Lula magazine, but it's so difficult to get a hold of (small town living here).
Girly thoughts: watching Gilmore Girls, giggling, baking (& eating) cupcakes, ogling vintage dresses, kittycat & puppydog snuggles.

My girly-meter hasn't worked properly for a while, but here are some non-tomboyish things I enjoy:

1. Changing my outfit three times a day, often first thing in the morning, occasionally without noticing.

2. Whitney Houston.

3. Sitting curled up in as small a ball as possible (difficult for 5'9")

4. Petting any and all visible cats.

5. Baking apple cakes and "accidentally" leaving them at friends' houses. Hmm, this verges on motherly.

6. Making squeaky sounds of protest when woken up early; luring the waker-upper into cuddles to avoid having to get out of bed.

So I lose the girlyness contest but will check back often, maybe pick up some pointers :) Thanks for hosting the giveaway, Erica!

I love full skirts and ruffled tops, clothes with lots of layers like soft cottons, it has such an airy feminine feel to me. Paired with macarons and champagne, bubbles and pretty colors in food form, I think the girly girl hidden inside me would explode (into daisies? rose petals?)!

cristalle said...

YAY!!! I somehow can't find it anywhere. You'd think in NYC, it would be available. My fingers are crossed!!!

Erica- Sorry for this blatant self promotion, but please enter my giveaway- we're giving a necklace!!

Julie said...

painting my nails, doing my sister's makeup for prom, holding babies, sipping tea in the rain, giggling about boys even though we're almost grown up, wearing black three days then HOT PINK, hugging really tight, sharing an anthropologie magazine and picking what we'll get when we're rich and famous, walking through a door that was held open, playing volleyball, low rise jeans, spice girls, making my own skirts, swing dancing, walking through doors that are held open, being a sister

just some of the things...

I went to a women's college so when I think of girly I remember all of the things we used to do like; singing out school songs, making small gifts and crafts for our sisters, singing karaoke, telling ghost stories, picking flowers in the gardens, stealing out to smoke in the gazebo in the middle of the night when we couldn't sleep and just being with my best friends.
