giveaway: hanky panky and sir alistair rai

December 27th, 2010 · Print Print

I hope everyone had an amazing holiday!  And for you East Coast-ers, hopefully you’re not stuck somewhere because of this winter’s first snowpocalypse (and likely not the last, sigh).

I assume you guys all made out like bandits over the holiday, and everything on your list is checked off till next year.  But if any of you are thinking you might want a couple more stocking stuffers, I thought I’d extend the Christmas spirit for another week with a giveaway!

The lucky winner of this basket will get a gorgeous Sir Alistair Rai scarf (the red is their bestselling pattern!), two pairs of low-rise Hanky Panky panties, and assorted hair and beauty products from L’Oreal, Keihls and more. 

To win, leave a comment below telling me what you’re going to be doing for New Year’s Eve!  I’ll announce a randomly selected winner next Wednesday.  And by then, it’ll be 2011 — can you believe that?!

    I have no idea what I am doing.  I know..I sound so exciting, but sometimes I can barely stay awake until the ball drops.  I think have a case of the “getting older”.  Happy New Year!

    Love your blog! I rang in 2011 with my boyfriend’s awesome family, drinking champagne and playing the game “Things.”

    Happy New Year to all!
