It's about time for a giveaway!

Happy Tuesday all!

             How was your weekend? Mine was a lot of fun! Ry was away with the boys and so I got to do some funny girly stuff with my cuz downtown. We went shopping at Metrotown which I think is the biggest mall in BC:) My cousin introduced me to Forever 21! I'm officially hooked. Love their clothes and the accessories were pretty cool too! I have to take a picture of the owl earrings as they are too fun. We spent over two hours in the store..ha! Just so you have an idea...this place is two floors of bliss:) I went a little crazy as I haven't shopped for myself in a LONG time. It felt really good  and brought me back to the days when I had no responsibilities and could spend at free will...ahh good times.

We stayed downtown all day and enjoyed dinner at The Brewhouse in gastown. I had one of the best lagers I've ever had and chowed down on a portabello burger. Sorry no picts. I didn't want to lug around my big camera and my blackberry died too:) I need to get a point and shoot for times like those!

Anywho, Since it's been such an amazing month here on Contagious Health I though it was perfect timing to give something away to my amazing readers!

First up!

One of my favorite health crusaders just wrote a new book...

I recently saw Kris in two different interviews ( here and here) and just love how radiant she is and how she is so REAL! I don't have the book yet but I am planning on it soon. If you are curious what other people think about the book check out the comments on Amazon!!

Second is a book that I NEED in the kitchen.

This will be a huge resource for anyone who cooks and bakes. I know I've had a few flops when baking without the usual eggs and dairy.What a great resource to have!

ahh, I remember going to the mall and spending money at will! Things change when there are other people in the picture. ;) Glad you had fun!

And what an awesome giveaway girlie!

I would love to get my paws on these because I'm always curious about substitutions - what's appropriate, how much and how-to's and also gotta love Kris Carr! I support her mission, her passion, plus I believe in her message. She's likable and relatable. Good combo.

Fave place to shop is just about anywhere! Even the grocery store! But I love to shop at Nordstrom but haven't been in awhile. ;)

I would love to have the books because I too think that Kris Carr is awesome! And I've also had my fair share of slops with vegan substitutes haha

My favourite places to shop in Canada are Aritzia for social situations and Lululemon for working out or just for being comfy. Those places are quite expensive though, so I don't go often, even though I love them! Don't want to wipe out my bank account! That's why I love going to Target when I'm in the states. Much more reasonably priced.

I never win anything so here goes nothing :) I am the worst shopper ever- I have been spoiled by my access to wholesale suppliers so that's where I get all my super power foods from.

Why do I want those books? My continued research so I know where the gap is for the development of my own :)

Girl, isn't forever 21 amazing? Hot trends for cheap...can't beat that!!

I used to shop there when they were only in the us of a ;)

I would love to win the first book because I read amazing reviews on it and it is so up my alley :)
