I know it’s going to be a huge challenge but I’m 100% ready. I’m going to need every single readers help with voting. First and foremost – I’m SO excited to be nominated. It’s the semi-finals right now and voting ends on Monday. Let’s just say every vote at this point counts. If I make it through to the finals I’d definitely use it towards the blog – making it an even more desirable place to come visit daily. Just think – new blog re-design, new original content series shot professionally, and more!

GIVEAWAY: Ormonde Jayne London Perfume

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I wanted to do a special giveaway with one of my favorite brands of perfume, Ormonde Jayne. About a year ago I was introduced to Ormonde Jayne by a friend, Violet Devereaux. The moment she opened her bottle of Champaca for me, I was head over heels in love.

Ormonde Jayne, the London-based perfumery kindly contacted me asking if I’d like to host a giveaway and have one of my lucky readers receive a bottle of their Champaca perfume.

For those of you who want to know what Champaca might smell like, it’s a tiny pale orange flower from India. Related to the magnolia and deemed sacred in the Indus Valley, the Champaca flower absolute is a heavenly, creamy, floral scent – both elegant and intimate. Blended with neroli and bamboo and underscored with fragrant rice and green tea notes, this is a distinguished perfume of rare beauty.

Want to win a bottle for yourself? It’s simple; leave a comment and your email below. The winner will be drawn on Friday, February 19th, 2010 at noon PST. Look forward to reading your comments.

Good luck, lovelies!
