Happy Birthday, italiagal! Ooh La La Giveaway!

I took a bit of a blogging break, Italian-style, as in during the month of August. Welcome back, readers!

Today is this blog's 3rd anniversary. It is also a special post because it is the 300th one. 

First of all, I adore this blog and am grateful for my readers. I have always loved to journal. This blog happens to be a public form of that. I am so happy that it connects me to others based on mutual interest or point-of-view. I hope to continue as long as I can!

Anyone who knows me knows I love a fabulous birthday celebration. So, to commemorate these two milestones, I am announcing a giveaway. Jamie Cat Callan kindly agreed to send an autographed copy of her latest book Ooh La La! French Women's Secrets To Feeling Beautiful Every Day along with a little note to my blog contest winner. I love this prize! If you haven't read this book released last May, you should and this may be your opportunity to land a copy! You can read my book review and my tangent on one of her topics on this previous blog post.

To enter, you must accomplish two things. First, leave a comment on this post about one thing that makes you feel beautiful. Second, like Jamie Cat Callan's Facebook page. You may enter anytime before 12:00 AM on Sunday, August 25, 2013. I will select the winner at random and announce the giveaway winner's name sometime on Sunday, August 25th. Be sure that I have a way to contact you to collect your name and mailing address should you be the lucky winner!

Good luck!


  1. I feel beautiful when I am eating and exercising as I should. I have already "liked" Jamie Cat Callan's FB page.

    I am excited for the opportunity to win her's been on my wish list for some time.

    Thank you


  2. I feel beautiful in a sexy red dress and high heels! I love to be glamorous for me and my hubby!


  3. I feel beautiful, when my young son looks at me and says, "I love you, mom" for no other reason than the simple fact that he loves me!! ♥


  4. I feel beautiful when I take time to create a great outfit. There is the time picking it out, trying on different options, until you look in the mirror and know you are rockin' it! Then you spend the rest of the day or evening walking tall and have that extra sashay in your step that let's people know you feel beautiful and confident.

    I have been following JCC for a while and would love to read her book! Now I am glad to find this blog as well. I am in search of elevating the everyday life and enjoying every moment (no matter what outfit I am wearing.)
