OK, so I know that this is primarily a DIY/Crafting/Decor blog but occassionally I'll post about something completely "off-topic". Well, today is one of those days.
Today, I am posting about ~FASHION~!
Well... sort of... in a round-about way... I guess you could say so.
Are you familiar with this guy?
|(by the way, isn't that wallpaper Cool?!)|
Ding ding ding!! Yes, it's Clinton Kelly! For those of you
who have been living under a rock for the past 7 years who don't get cable television, he is the host of the fabulously fun fashion show "What Not to Wear" on TLC, along with Stacy London.
In addition to being a famous TV host, Clinton is also an author, a national spokesperson for Macy's and he even has a clothing line sold on QVC. Yes, this man gets around.
And to top it all off, he's friends with ME. Yes, like "in real life" friends. Isn't that cool!?!
~Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me? Don't you? Don't you?~
Well, before I get all cocky, I should probably slap myself back into reality because it isn't like we're best buds or anything. We don't talk on the phone all the time or have drinks every summer in the Hamptons. *sigh* One can dream, though, right?
BUT... we did go to High School together (we even had a few classes together if memory serves correctly - French perhaps?). AND... we're friends on Facebook where he does actually write on my wall every so often and frequently "likes" my posts and photos. I haven't seen him in person since our 10-year HS reunion (which was a looooooooong time ago) but we have talked about getting together next time he is in the DC area. *fingers crossed* He is a really hilarious guy, but, I'll admit, not for the faint of heart. He tells it like it is. Certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but I sure would enjoy hanging out with him over drinks one night!
Annnnyyyyyywwwwaaaaayyy... he recently published a new book.
When I saw this announcement, I decided to go out on a limb and ask him if he would mind autographing a copy for me to give away to my readers. I even offered to pay for the book itself (+shipping) if he'd be willing to send one to me. Well, sure enough, he responded immediately with a "hell yes!" and within a week I had two signed copies of his book in my hands - one personalized for me (squuee!) and one to give away to YOU! (Needless to say, he wouldn't accept my money! He's so cool!).
So, there you go.
It's GIVEAWAY TIME!!!
The winner will receive an autographed copy (sorry, not personalized) of Clinton's Book "Oh No She Didn't".
All you need to do to enter this giveaway is leave a comment. About anything! That's it! :)
Since this book has nothing to do with DIY/Crafting/Decor, you do NOT need to be a follower of my blog (although it would be nice! :) **Giveaway open to US and Canada residents only** (sorry, International folks, but I can't ship the book overseas)
Just for full disclosure: This book is Rated PG-13 and may not appeal to all readers. To quote Clinton's recent email to me... "i was drinking bourbon when i wrote it. makes me sassy." 'Nuff said.
This giveaway will end at NOON (EST) on Wednesday, December 8. The winner will be chosen via random.org and will be announced no later than Friday, 12/10.
