Give it away, give it away, give it away now!

I seem to have a charming effect on children lately; previously, my relationship with children was one of mutual avoidance. However, directly after I shot this photo and was going to my camera to check the results, a little girl broke free from her mother's hand to hug me and say, "I love you." I know. I didn't even have any candy on me.

Dress: thrifted. Shoes: Nine West. Earrings: Target.


I feel weird telling you these stories, because I fear they come off a bit smug...

Smug bitch!

...but really I'm just sharing my utter bewilderment with you. Children love ladies in black, I suppose, and soon, one of you will too! Even though there is no candy in my bag, there is this...


Ta-da! A brand spanking-new iPod Shuffle!

...the prize for this latest contest!! Everything you need to randomly listen to songs that you love (I load mine with gay nightclub music for working out), including the Shuffle itself, earbuds and dock.

How to Enter:

1) Follow me on Twitter, then leave a comment on this post.

2) Post about this contest on your own blog, then leave a comment on this post.

3) Become a follower of this blog, then leave a comment!

You can say anything you want, but I'm hoping your comments will include which album you can't wait to get next, as I'm always looking to expand my repertoire. ;)

You can enter this contest any time between now and July 5, 2009 at 12 pm. The winner will be randomly generated, and posted on or around July 6.

Good luck everyone!

Yours,

Elissa.

Great giveaway! My Ipod just died on me and no amount of resuscitation would work. This is just as I'm starting a new exercise program so I'm bummed about that.

I follow you on Twitter. Although it's been out for a while I recently have been playing John Mayer's Continuum and love it.

To be honest the only thing I really wait for would be the Live DVD of Michael Jackson.. THAT would be something, would beat any CD! But if I had to say a CD, then a new album by Enigma would be fun!

I want to get the Mitch Hansen CD "Endless Day" as it has songs Mitch wrote and sings about Twilight. Some very beautiful songs too.

Chris said...

Great pictures. I love your yellow bag.

I love most music written by women, but I haven't heard a lot of new music lately. Maybe by the end of the summer there will be more.
