So my video finally worked itself out and I can now announce the winners of the 2013 TCFKAG Shops Promotional Contest.  It may become annual - or I may have just stuck 2013 in there for factual clarity.  YOU NEVER KNOW.  But annnnyway, back to the point.  

Just to make sure you all knew everything was on the up and up, I filmed myself putting the names (well, usernames or nicknames) into a bowl and then Monotasker (my husband for those who don't follow my Tumblr) picked the names for us. So it was all very official.  Check out the video - it was my first attempt at iMovie editing, so don't make fun of me (or totally do - its fairly hilarious how difficult I found editing a simple video was.
Don't want to watch a three-minute long video you find out who won?  Well I understand that - so the winners are listed after the break!

As the headline suggests, I'm having a little contest.  Since my blog is like a new baby bird, trying to spread its wings and fly, I'd like to give it a little more readership by getting some word of mouth going.  But, I wondered, how should I do that.  So I sat down to think about one is want to do.  And I thought and I thought...and I turned into a heavily muscled man made of bronze.    
But then inspiration struck like a bolt of lightening - I'll have a prize!  Who doesn't like a prize?  What is the prize you ask?  How do I win the prize?  WHAT'S GOING ON HERE????   
Okay so here's how to enter and how to win.

  • Promote TCFKAG Shops on your own blog, facebook, Tumblr, or wherever you have readers or followers who might do what you say (ideally you would say something nice, but content is not a requirement of entry.)  
  • Take a screenshot of the promotion or a link to the promotion and send it to me at
  • One entry per website, but if you have more than one blogging platform you can enter for each one.
  • The contest starts today and ends Thursday, May 30th at 11:59 PM.
  • At that point, all entrants will be entered in a random lottery.
  • Three (3) winners will be selected to win personal shopping from me via email.
  • Email personal shopping can take the form that most suits your interest but can include any of the following: (1) style advice based on pictures of you in outfits you already own, (2) wardrobe refresh advice, (3) shopping advice (of course), (4) dressing for your body-type advice, (5) gift ideas for those you know and love or (6) on-line shopping lessons (give a woman a fish, she eats for a day, teach a woman to fish, she eats for a lifetime.)  But the process will differ from what I do on the website because it will be interactive and involved.  You can ask follow-up questions and the answers will be better matched to your tastes and needs.  Plus it'll be fun.

So - if you're interested - START PROMOTING.  Word of mouth is the best way to spread the news about a new blog and I'd love to get some more regular readers!  Let's do this thing people...I'll give periodic updates during the course of the week about how its going.  And lets just hope it doesn't end up like this.
But instead ends up more like this!
