Another day of confessions... who's super stoked about the Royal Wedding? I know I am! Kate is a commoner and she snagged her prince. Go girl! I am so goosebumpily excited to see the wedding on the 29th, as is most of you, right? I have been watching all those lovely documentaries on William and Kate, Princess Di, Her Majesty, etc and it's just fun to watch. I think Kate and William are a perfect matchup and the 29th will be a day to watch! Besides, I want to copy cat her style. She's pretty fab. Only one thing that kinda perturbs me are the comparisons done with Princess Di and Kate. I get where they are coming from because Princess Di broke down barriers and was the People's Princess and there are a lot of hopes for Kate. But... she isn't Diana. She's Kate Middleton and will be fabulous on her own without having to walk in Diana's shadows. Go girl! Rooting for you from the misery I like to call home, the desert of Arizona.
It's British Fever!!!
If you haven’t already checked out the Sourcebooks British Babes Book Brigade Facebook Page (where you can participate in giveaways and interact with authors like Elizabeth Chadwick, Jill Mansell, Helen Hollick, Sarah Bower and Phillipa Ashley and more…) then you should before next week because the page is about to go royally mad!!
Check out what's going on over there:
The royal wedding is only a week away and we are going to be celebrating all next week. Starting Monday we will be doing a giveaway every day until the big celebration on Friday. But these are no ordinary giveaways – these are royal wedding prize packs!
3 winners will be randomly picked each day:
- The 1st place winner will get a William & Kate wedding memento (it is top secret for now (just like Kate’s dress J) but check the page out on Monday to find out – oh and they are all different so there will be a different memento each day). Along with that they also get their choice of three books from any of our British Book Babes.
- The 2nd place winner will have their choice of any two books from any of our British Book Babes.
- The 3rd place winner will have their choice of one book from any of our British Book Babes.
