GiveAwAY TuesdAY--Gaga for Charity!

Happy New Year Dahlinks! And I'm determined that it's going to be a good one :) So one of my resolutions is to continue to be regular about my blog, post (hopefully!) useful and fun info and continue my GiveAwAY TuesdAY (does this qualify as a meme? At least for me?).  And gark--I realize it's MONDAY--this whole holiday thing has me totally befuddled--so let's just PRETEND that it's Tuesday. Next week it'll all be normal. Yes.

To that end, TWO things I'm thrilled I got to do in 2011 were to see the Savage Beauty exhibit--the retrospective of Alexander McQueen's work--at the Met... (No photos allowed in the exhibit--but I took these snaps of the windows at Bergdorf Goodman who did a fantastic public display--I think I need that clutch bag!)


...AND visit Gaga's Holiday Workshop over at Barney's New York (see mine and Vin's visit to the workshop by clicking HERE). I got the cover for my brandy-new iPad at the Workshop, but I thought it would be cool to put together a little Gaga prize for GiveAwAy TuesdAY--which kinda goes with another of my resolutions for 2012--to give back.

25% of all sales from the Workshop go to Gaga's Born This Way Foundation, which will, when it goes active sometime this year, will "focus on youth empowerment and equality by addressing issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development and will utilize digital mobilization as one of the means to create positive change." (their words were pretty good--why try to paraphrase?) And she's working with her mom on this. <3

Onto the goodies! Have a look:

Oooo--how about a close-up?
Oooo nice!

For this giveaway the winner will receive:

<3 1Gaga's Workshop tote-bag
<3 3 Gaga's Workshop stickers to keep and share :) 
<3 1 tube of Born This Way Lipgloss by NARS
<3 1pair of Red Shoe Earrings--the "armadillo" shape was dreamed up by Alexander McQueen, one of Gaga's favorite designers--so also included is:
<3 1 Postcard picturing the Jellyfish Armadillo Boot from the Savage Beauty exhibit
<3 Gaga's Workshop shopping bag and post card

  3. Thank you for this super amazing giveaway, I love Gaga's Born This Way Foundation and what it stands for, last year my son's best friend was being bullied and know body knew, he was such a beautiful young boy and was so nice, he was liked by everyone from all grades, he just had that personality, in the end he killed himself, he was only 15, so very sad. Gaga's foundation is so important and I'm so glad she started it.

    I'm a blog follower as well, I hope you and your family had a wonderful Holidays!!
