Feeling a bit hot and sweaty? Yes, Stylers, summer is officially just three weeks away. Which means a few things.
1. I will go to the beach and actually swim in the water. I’m wuss when it comes to water temperature.
2. I will dust off my summer cocktail recipes and declare happy hour on a
daily weekends-only basis.
3. I will aim to wear as little clothing as possible while still maintaining a moderate sense of public decency.
4. I will only cook outside on the Weber.
All of the above will somehow get me through the stickiest months of the year that really don’t seem to agree with my delicate disposition. Umm, hello swollen cankles I’m looking at you.
To help YOU get through the summer stickies, I’ve put together my last multi-draw giveaway of the year. A massive 25 Styling You readers will win something pretty from a total prize pool of $2700. And yes, one very, very lucky Styler will win the new Uberkate Love Lines necklace. I’ve actually sent my husband about six trillion “hubby hints” about this one … and the earrings pictured below. I’m sure he’ll come through with the goods. (And if you want to
double triple your chances of winning Uberkate for Christmas, make sure you head over to see Mrs Woog and Bec and Amy at The Makeup Case. They’ve got their Uberkate Santa hats on too.)
Read on for what you can win. You’ll find that instead of the random draw, I’m asking you a question (What’s your favourite summer style memory?). I’ve also got a new entry form system. Hope it works better for you. Do let me know if you have troubles. Sorry, I know you like an easy entry but I’ve had legal advice that the random draws could get me in the poo. I don’t want to stop running giveaways, so I hope you’ll still be happy to enter.
