GIVEAWAY!

Let's kick off the year with a giveaway! Yea! 
How about a 2-part prize! :)

First, the winner will receive the amazing and inspiring book "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide." It is a new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, and it will move you, just as it horrifies you. The authors are trying to start a movement to raise the status of women and help end global poverty. They feel the best way to "fight poverty and extremism is to educate and empower women and girls." 
I received a copy for Christmas and I feel it is so important, I'd like to give a copy to another lucky lady!



IN ADDITION to the book.  
I will also send to you a wonderful ORANGE linen scarf, because right now, on  
a pina colada blog,
I"m lovin' orange and lovin' scarves.  

Good Luck to you all!

  1. Hey! Read your post on Or so she says... Really good! I'm going to put that book on my list--or maybe I'll win it! And I'm obsessed with orange. I love all the decor in your post about orange. I can't actually wear orange because it makes me look weird so I surround myself with orange in every other way I can. :)

  38. Good Morning and Happy Sunday!
    I found your blog through SITS and am very happy I did.
    I too love the color orange... but have done so my entire life- thus the orange mini van, orange compact car, cell phone, clothing, accessories, etc... if a day goes by when I don't have something orange on, my family wonders if I am ill... LOL!
    Orange has a super power- it can brighten even the dreariest day and lighten the darkest of moods... It's like Prozac only better, but just as addictive!
    I'll be sure to check back often -- I really like the thoughts on the sidebar... words of wisdom from very wise women.And as soon as I figure it out I will be posting your button on my blog... darn technology!
