GIVEAWAY with Lifestyle Maven!!! CLOSED

Good news dearies!  Cailen from Lifestyle Maven has chosen you to have the opportunity to win a signed copy of her new book, Well-Designed Living: A Guide to Designing the Home and Defining the Self!  And to spice things up she has added her own upcycled t-shirt necklaces in for the win!  Thank you Cailen!  

 


Now let's learn a little more about the woman behind it all:

What started the idea of writing a book?
I've always been passionate about living well; finding time for happiness, health and beauty in my life.  Prior to the book, I had been keeping a blog, Lifestyle Maven.



Who or what inspires you?
I'm completely inspired by craig (my fiance).  He challenges me to be better and always supports me in all I do.  Also, my family and friends are awesome.  They always have my back.  Other than that, I'm inspired by things I love,  both big and small; rainy days,  travel to far off lands,  holiday traditions,  falling leaves,  delicious cocktails, or  dinner with friends.

What do you enjoy most about being a writer/ designer?
Hmmm.... that's a tough one, because I'm inclined to say I enjoy pretty much everything. But most of all, I love being able to be completely true to myself and share (and preserve) my thoughts, ideas, creations, memories, and what-have-you.  I also love connecting with readers.  It feels so good when someone gives you positive feedback about something you've created.  That can just make my day!

Describe your book in three words:
health . happiness . home

What is unique about your creations?
The t-shirt necklace is a cool project i found in whole living magazine.  I'm all about scarves & pashminas; so the t-shirt necklace/scarf hybrid really appealed to me.  My sis and I started crafting them and, needless to say, many of our family members and friends are now enjoying their recycled t-shirt accessories.

For Extra Entires:

Luv this dual giveaway, it's just a great idea :)

I am Cailen's newest follower! How exciting she has her own book, that has always been a dream of mine (but other than the kind you can upload and create on Blurb.com it will never happen for me, lol).

That necklace is very cool too, I keep looking at these styles on Etsy.

I have been a follower of your blog for *some time* ;)
