Cheerful and blustery (plus a giveaway)

We’ve had a blustery few days here, but I won’t complain because I love the cold and we got our first snow! I love wearing my cheerful red coat this time of year, especially when it’s topping off a sequined sweater (hard to see in the pictures) and a new-to-me tweed skirt. 

And now, on to the giveaway news! I received a few deluxe sample bottles of Donna Karan’s new fragrance, Woman, courtesy of Vogue! I actually really love the scent, even though it’s a little heavier and stronger than my other perfumes. If you’d like to enter to win a sample bottle (.24 fl. oz.) of Donna Karan’s Woman (the perfect stocking-stuffer for someone who loves to try new fragrances), enter using the Rafflecopter widget below. I might even throw in a bottle of my favorite Essie polish.
