A Pretty Chic Giveaway

N_GoldKeyCoralAnchorBlueGeoHound[1]

While I love my iPhone and am slightly addicted to my e-mail and the internet, I am more traditional when it comes to taking notes. As a blogger, I always need to be prepared to capture unexpected inspiration. I usually carry a camera and a small notebook in my handbag for when blogging moments arise. I may jot down blogging ideas that come to me out of the blue or to do something as simple as making a list of items to buy at the grocery store or making a note of a doctor’s appointment.

These chic little notebooks from Pretty Chic SF come in several cute patterns and fit the bill perfectly. Pretty Chic SF has teamed up with La Dolce Vita to giveaway one of these notebooks to a lucky winner.

Please include your e-mail address, so that I may contact you if you are the winner.

I just got the keys to my new apartment and was surprised to see an old skeleton key on the key chain that is still in use, so maybe it's a sign that I should pick the skeleton key print as my favorite!

Though I'd never turn down a cute houndstooth print, it would match the file folders on my desk!

Very cool! I like the blue geometric. Thanks!

b said...

i am OBSESSED with the white with the gold keys. they are all cute but this one wins because both the colors and the pattern are classic. while keys may be a little bit trendy right now, they are most definitely always in style and anyone could tote one of these around!

LOVE IT!

ps i keep a little notebook with my at all times as well to jot down....it's just so much better than taking creative notes on an iphone :)
