Kate Spade ‘Things We Love’ Book Giveaway

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 110 0


I’m really excited to be offering a giveaway that combines two of my favourite things:  Kate Spade and coffee table books!  I think just about every girly-girl has a major weakness for all things Kate Spade, and I’m certainly no exception.  My first “designer” handbag purchase was actually the Kate Spade Sam bag in a blue fine-whale corduroy.  I made that purchase over 10 years ago, and I’ve been a loyal Kate Spade fan ever since.


I’m also a huge fan and collector of coffee table books.  My collection is too large to keep in my tiny apartment so most of them are stored at my parents house until I one day have a space large enough to put them all on display (oh, the joys of living in downtown Toronto. . . space is definitely a premium).  So, when Kate Spade came out with this gorgeous book of all things they love, I was first in line to pick it up.  This beautiful book is full of bold colour, pretty patterns, and tons of inspiration.  I’m sure you will love it just as much as I do!

    I’ve never seen any Kate Spade merchandise in real life but I’ve seen bits and pieces on blogs and it looks really colourful and girly. I think there might be a shop in London now but I’ve never been 🙂

    I picked up the Cupcakes and Cashemere book a while ago and it’s an amazing source of fashion, home decor and cooking inspiration. As for reading, I can’t pick a favorite, I read a lot. Right now I’m reading Gone Girl and I can’t put it down, so good !

    I just finished reading “The Twelve”, which is the sequel to “The Passage” by Justin Cronin. Loved it! If you like end of the world/post-apocalyptic type books you will love it too. Both are very well written!

    BTW thanks for the giveaway- I love your blog!

    I actually don’t own much in a way of coffee table books but I do love Kate Spade! I am book worm and read about a book a week. This year, my goal is to read a little more classic books that I did not appreciate growing up and I will start with Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

Also, by boyfriend’s brother is an author and right now I’m reading his girls wearing black series (it’s like Twilight but a million times better!). You can find his books on Amazon under Spencer Baum 🙂

    I used to be a huge reader and I’m sadly not anymore now that I’m busy in school. But the current book I’m obsessed with is “50 Contemporary Fashion Designers You Should Know” – I found it at a Mario Testino exhibit in Boston! It’s a great book for someone in the industry to have!
