We are VERY excited for today’s giveaway. Those of you who follow me on Instagram, or who have come to any of our recent book signings, have probably seen my own Hayden satchel, which I splashed out for, Treat Yo Self-style, some time last year when GiGi was running a sale. I get tons of compliments on it — I actually wrote down the info about the brand, GiGi New York, on a scrap of paper for one of you at our Chicago book event — so when GiGi asked Heather and me if we’d like to give one away to Fug Nation, we were delighted and we jumped at the chance. The winner will be able to choose the color from the options in the slideshow above (black, navy, cobalt, stone, ivory, white, or saddle [which is the camel color], some of which are embossed to resemble python), and can also have it personalized. We just want to give you nice things!

You can find all the stats on the Hayden satchel at GiGi’s website, and because I have one, I will very likely be able answer any questions you might have about them, too.  (In a couple of weeks, we’re also going to be able to bring Fug Nation a special discount code for GiGi’s site, so you can go crazy and buy yourself a whole pile of bags if you want.)

THE TASK: We will have BUT ONE winner, and I will choose that lucky person at random. But to make it fun, please comment and tell us the one thing that you always have rattling around the bottom of your bag. (Mine is lip gloss.)

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Sunday night, July 26th.  FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. The contest is for US residents only.
