WIN! Baby Days: Indigo April 7, 2009

3sprouts-organic-chico-cream-foldWhen you’re thinking about gifts for baby (either your own or someone else’s), Indigo might not be the first place that comes to mind. But it should be. First, the soothing atmosphere makes it a great place to hang out if you’re eight months pregnant or up to your eyeballs in alligators at the office. Second, if you have children, they stay occupied in the play area while you saunter through the aisles checking out all the games, books, toys, decor items and clothing for babies.

You’ll find Yummy Bear Banks in vibrant colours, a Farmyard Fun book that helps little ones learn their ABCs and frames to showcase the World’s Best Looking kid.

Our prize from Indigo includes:

  • 3 Sprouts Organic Chico Towel, $34. Generously sized bath towel perfect for your new baby or toddler. Made out of 100% organic cotton.
  • Peachtree Baby ID Bracelet Frame, $45.99. Now the little hospital I.D. bracelet which your child once wore can now be uniquely displayed and cherished forever. The hand finished white shadowbox frame and spaced glass are designed to give a simple and elegant presentation.

TO ENTER, SEND AN E-MAIL TO SHEL@SHELZOLKEWICH.COM WITH THE SUBJECT LINE BABY DAYS

NOTE: If you have already entered your name for the Baby Days prize packs, no need to enter again. All names will go into the pot for the draws at the end of day Wednesday.

The last time I had a make-up lesson, Duran Duran was hungry like the wolf and Prince was driving a little red corvette. Needless to say, I can use a little refresher course. The good folks at The Body Shop have come to my rescue with a step-by-step Webisode (I learned that new word today) featuring their new Roseflower Collection for spring.

The short video is hosted by Chase Aston, an international celebrity make-up artist with a delightful British accent that makes everything he says sound fabulous. The Roseflower Collection starts at $14 and includes eye colour, blush, lip shades and more.

TO WIN A $200 BASKET: Click on the link below (or paste it into your browser) to watch the video then drop me a short e-mail with the answer to this questions. Name one of Chase’s two ‘must-haves’ for spring make-up. Hint: He reveals his picks near the end of the video.

Send your answer to shel@shelzolkewich.com by Friday, March 13.
