Giveaway Week!

This giveaway is now closed.  We're giving away a new book every day this week.  Please join today's contest!

I'm doing an entire week of giveaways here on the blog! If you follow the Couture Allure Facebook page, you know I've been downsizing my personal research library over the past couple of months.  Most of the vintage books are being offered for sale in my SewHallie Etsy shop, and more will be added this week.  However, there are several that I want to give away as gifts to my devoted followers here on the blog.  I know I neglected you last month, and I hope these gifts will make up for it!

Today's offering is the book, "Marilyn Monroe Unseen Archives" by Marie Clayton.  This is a sweet little 7" x 5 1/2" book that is chock full of 383 pages of photos and biographical information about our favorite screen siren.



There are hundreds of black and white photos in this book and loads of detailed information about Marilyn's life.  I know you'll enjoy it!

This giveaway will run for 24 hours only and the winner will be chosen at 7am Eastern Tuesday, February 12, 2013.  I'm not going to make you jump through hoops either.  Simply leave a comment here on the blog.  If you don't have a blogger profile, please leave your email address in your comment.  I'll choose the winner via the random number generator tomorrow morning and will contact the winner via email for shipping information.  And stay tuned for another giveaway every day this week!

Important!  If you live in the US, I will ship this book to you via Media Mail at no cost.  Unfortunately, due to the recent postal rate increases, if you live outside of the US, I must ask that you pay for the shipping, which could run anywhere from $14.00 - $21.00 depending upon where you live.  If you live outside the US and are not willing to pay the shipping, please do not enter this giveaway!

Marilyn kept me sane and dreaming big when I was 12. I read anything and everything I could to learn about her, old Hollywood, the good, the bad and hopeful. It was her story, and her influence, that gave me courage to come to Hollywood to peruse my dreams as a makeup artist. I did it, and would appreciate this to add to my collection!! Please and thank you. :)
