Win-It Wednesday: The Lancome/Violet Gift Bag!

Yay! Finally a couple of photos from the lovely Lancome and Violet By Design events this weekend. (Tomorrow: Marc by Marc photos–promise.)
There’s me with Lancome spokesmodel Selena Breed (who’s not only stunning, but also really funny and smart and into mini-cupcake icing) and celebrity makeup artist Daniel Martin (a genius who spent five minutes on my face and made me look very glam but very me at the same time–hard to do!). Then there’s me with Whitney from America’s Next Top Model–how cool is it that she showed up?
The crowd was so much fun–everyone got their makeup done and I got lots of book signing requests! These are official Penguin photos, but I’ll post some fun friend photos soon in a fun montage (I’m not the best at patchworking photos together on the blog, but I’m learning!).
Now, check out the gift bag swag (I snagged this shot from Miss Whoever-You-Are–thanks!)
lancome.JPG I scored three extra gift bags just for you blog readers, and I’ll be giving them away in the next week! They each include the February issue of Vogue, a copy of Violet on the Runway and Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover (which I’ve been using, and loving, since Saturday–it doesn’t hurt your eyes, which is key).
To enter, sign up for my newsletter in the purple box at left (it’s for book news, really, so it’ll just be a few notes a year). Or, If you’ve already signed up for the newsletter, you can just leave me a comment about anything that comes to mind–that counts too! Sign up or comment by next Wednesday, when I’ll pick three winners who’ll get gift bags. Sound fair?
PS-There’s also a current contest for any bloggers who are doing reading challenges (Young Adult Challenge, First in a Series Challenge, or A-Z Reading Challenge) to win a copy of Violet on the Runway. Visit Thoughts of Joy to enter!
PPS-The Page Flipper also has a contest going on to win an entire pack of books, so head over there, too!

    Sounds like fun! I think that someday I would like to go to a Fashion Week, not sure it would ever happen, but it would be cool!

    I’ve already signed up for the newsletter. I WILL get a copy of Violet on the Runway, if it KILLS me…

  4. Regina says:

    I signed up already. =] I’m really hoping that I can win this contest because I so far away and can never attend these type of parties. If I win I promise to keep everything in the gift bag with care! ;]

  5. Melissa says:

    Hoorah! I signed up for your newsletter and its nice to meet you too!
    I don’t thnk I’d ever see myself anywhere near fashion week, but you never know right?

  7. Irene Guberman says:

    I already signed up for the new paper, so I’m commenting. I have Violet on the Runway, though, I read it thursday :)
    I think the beginnig is a little bit rushed but once you get really into it you can see all the great details and things that come from personal experience. Overall it’s a really good book and I’m gonna order Violet by Design next

    That looked like so much fun. I would have loved to meet Whitney from ANTM. She was one of my favorite girls from that show.

  9. Wendy says:

    It looks like you had a lot of fun – I would have loved to be there! :)
    By the way, what dress (at least it looks like a dress) were you wearing? the top is so pretty!

  10. Thanks, you guys! It was fun, and I wish everyone could have come! There’s another Lancome event in Dallas coming up, if anyone’s near there…
    Whitney was awesome and sweet, btw.
    And the dress is actually from Target–the Luella Bartley designer series line. Here’s a link to some info and the red version:
    Alas, to find it now, you’ll have to turn to ebay. It’s a great dress, and I even wore it swimming after a friend’s wedding ( has evidence of that moment in my photos).

  11. Wendy says:

    I like the black version better. It definitely looks like a really cute dress… if only I wasn’t completely broke! lol.

  12. Nevin says:
