Giveaway Loot – Berenice Bejo’s earrings from The Oscars! (well…close).

Posted on

While many of the fashion pundits did not approve of Bérénice Bejo‘s Oscar gown (she’s the gorgeous gal from “The Artist“), she got high marks for her beautiful diamond and emerald dangly drop earrings.

Emitations (I just love this company) has a gorgeous pair of earrings that look like those very earrings and we’re giving away a pair to a lucky reader.  Tell your friends.  *Disclaimer – these were not given to us, but purchased, but we are happy advocates of Emitations jewelry – the quality is undeniable.  And if you have expensive baubles, chances are you can find a copy on their website to wear while traveling – leave your engagement ring home!

To enter, you must a) subscribe to this blog, b) make a comment here on this post, c) make a wish!  It’s that simple. You can Tweet it, Facebook it, Pin it, Tumblr it – whatever you want, if you have a friend who’d look great in these drops.   Here are some photos of Ms. Bejo and a photo of the actual prize!  Contest ends on March 15, 2012.  Good luck!

 

 

Goodness, we now return to our regularly scheduled programming.

It’s a long story.  Back tonight and tomorrow.  Some retro fun, a mind-blowing giveaway worth thousands to the lucky winner (psst – it has to do with that new ring you sport so chicly!) and some thoughts on trends.

We didn’t mean to be away so long, we hope our lovely readers won’t make us feel wrong.  So sit right back, have a glass of Champagne – we promise we’re back in the style game.

Cheers, F4 Fam of Femmes.

Sigh....

 

Show off that engagement ring with 2 FREE Zoya nail enamels. Yes, free.

An unexpected January beauty freebie.  No strings attached.  Simply go to the Zoya home page, choose 2 of your favorite colors and add them to your shopping cart.  You will only pay shipping at $6.95.  For your coupon code, add ZOYA2012 in that field – and voila!  You have 2 gorgeous new nail lacquers coming your way.

We especially like Dulcinea, a neutral nude-beige with rosy-copper shimmer and Tao, a shimmery metallic grey with a hint of blue.  I’d like to add that whoever gets to name lipsticks and nail colors has the very best job in the world, no?  Now, get those pretty digits typing, as this offer ends at 11:59 PM, EST.

Beautiful Zoya colors.

One sweet giveaway – YOUR wedding, planned by Dolce Parties.

The time has come!  We are giving away one of our highly coveted “E-Consultation” ($500) value to a lucky bride.  You can read about it here and here.  It’s insanely popular and we gals at dolce parties are really happy we added it to our services about a year ago.  After 10 years of full-service only, we branched out into this market as it was totally necessary, extraordinarily rewarding and fun to do.  Most of all, it gave brides all over the country the chance to experience full-service without the hefty price tag.

To qualify:  you must be a subscriber to this blog, must be engaged, must use the service by December 31, 2012 and can be located anywhere in the United States OR be planning a destination wedding, since we service all areas.  We work everywhere and have relationships with vendors the world over, so you needn’t be local (because we really aren’t!).

If you know someone who fits this description, send them this link, have them subscribe and tell them how to enter.

How to enter?  In the comments, tell us why you need a celebrity wedding planner.  We’ll choose one winner at random and then, you get to choose your 3-month e-consultation time period.  It’s that simple.  Value:  $500.  Again, go to the website to read every delicious detail of what the offer entails and decide if it’s something you need/want/MUST have.  A couture wedding planner – gratis – in the palm of your hand.

We are extending the giveaway.  Just comment by 8 PM Sunday, December 18, EST and we’ll announce the winner on Monday.  We cannot wait to welcome another fantastic couple into the Dolce family.

Mayjah Giveaway next week – tell your engaged friends.

Next week, we are giving away one of our highly coveted “E-Consultation” ($500) value to a lucky bride.  You can read about it here and here.  It’s insanely popular and we gals at dolce parties are really happy we added it to our services about a year ago.

To qualify:  you must be a subscriber to this blog, must be engaged, must use the service by the end of 2012 and can be located anywhere in the United States OR be having a destination wedding, since we service all areas, although we are based in D.C.  So, email your engaged friends, tweet this, talk it up.  We are thrilled to offer this wonderful gift to one very lucky couple.

We will post the giveaway next Wednesday and have 48 hours of open comments before choosing a winner, who will be announced Saturday morning.    The winner will get the most fantastic advice, vendor recos, planning tools, contract reviews and emotional support from Team Dolce.

Sorry to put requirements on it, but clearly, the giveaway needs to go to the appropriate winner.  And fear not, we will be giving another one away in March for all the girls getting sparklers on that special finger over the December holidays and Valentine’s Day.  This is for someone already planning and perhaps stressing a wee bit.

Color wheel – coming up.  So much deliciousness.

And the winner is….Deanna G! Beautiful Sephora Girl.

Now, please do invite friends to subscribe and comment so you can win – and please do subscribe via email and not in a Google reader to help our ever-lovin’ SEOs.  Goodness gracious giveaways abound here (not quite trips to Hawaii or Seychelles YET, but….).  Deanna, please send your info to info@dolceparties.com and sorry for the delay.  New posts this evening for #supersaturday, so pull up a chair today sometime after 6 PM.  We have gift-giving guides, Thanksgiving party tips and some gorgeous wedding goodness.

Congrats on your Sephora gift card, Deanna.  Now, go sparkle.
