I n this digitally downloadable world, it’s nice to get lost in the actual physical pages of a good book..

Sure a device is convenient, but the images don’t jump out at you like they do in a book and it’s so much easier to only half-read a page when it’s on a screen! So for any of my readers who want to be taken on a journey that only a good book can take them on, read on.

I had intended this giveaway to be for 1 of 3 books, only the third book is still in transit somewhere (and so I’ll do a seperate giveaway for that one).

This book giveaway is simple.  If one of these books takes your fancy, show your interest by filling out the form further below and if your name is drawn, that book could be yours (I’ll send it out to you in NZ free)…

In a nutshell:

  1. This is a free giveaway (I haven’t done one in awhile, and I mean who needs a reason!).

  2. The books are brand spanking new.

  3. Open to my NZ  or AUS based social media readers (FB, Insta).  (For postage reasons!)

  4. One submission (entry) per person.

  5. The only way you can enter is to fill out the entry form below.

  6. You have from today until 9pm Saturday 1st October 2016 (NZ time to submit your choice).

  7. One name (winner) for each book will be drawn at random but in order for a book to be included in the giveaway – there have to be at least two submissions (it’s only fair).

  8. You can select both books if you want but your name can only be picked as a winner once.

  9. All the fine print is further below so read if you need (yawn!).


The Books

book giveaway

 STYLED by Emily Henderson

I’ve loved this woman ever since she took out Design Star way back in 2010 (wait has it been that long…and what actually happened to that show?) Her ethos then was that your personal style (clothing) can and should reflect your interior style. Obviously I was sold on this idea and so too the fact that she has put all of her ‘styling secrets’ into a book. I own a copy and I have another copy to giveaway.


You only have to follow Gala Darling on FB to know how inspiring she is. She is also a kiwi girl (yay!) who now calls the US home. This book is an inspiring read, great for when you need to remind yourself how to love yourself more! Here are some more deets about the book. Again, I have a copy and I’m giving one away to… (possibly, maybe you if your name is drawn…)


If either of these books sounds like a bit of ‘you’ fill out the entry form below

– Sorry folks the giveaway is now closed –

By pressing submit you agree to the rules of this giveaway as outlined below:


Even though this is just a giveaway – no strings attached, for the sake of ensuring that there are specific guidelines (and to avoid any confusion) the fine print is below:

Official Rules of Entry for my Booklovers Giveaway #1: No purchase is necessary for entry. Submissions will only be accepted from eligible entrants as outlined below.  See *Who is eligible for entry. Submissions open on Thursday 29th September 2016 (NZ time) and close on Saturday 1st October 2016 at 9 pm NZ time. One entry per person (but one person can select more than one item per entry). All eligible submissions will be drawn at random at the conclusion of the giveaway. Winners will be notified by 5 pm Monday 3rd October 2016 unless there is difficulty in finding them. Winners will have 24 hours to contact me and claim their item once notified. If a winner cannot be found or does not make contact in time or does not wish to claim their item, another eligible submission will be drawn at random and contacted under the same conditions. This may reoccur until the item is claimed or failing that, until entries for that item run out. A list of winners will be acknowledged (by first name only) in this blog post on completion of the giveaway. There is to be only one prize per winner. All eligible entrants will be given one entry per item selected unless their name is drawn as a winner (in which case it will be removed from winning further items) or all prizes have been drawn and claimed. Items will only be given away if there are at least two eligible submissions per item (to keep the draw random). If there is no interest in an item (or no-one has selected the item in the form), this item will not be part of the giveaway.

*Who is eligible for entry: The giveaway is a fun gesture for all NZ fans of my social media pages and as such entry is only open to current fans of my Facebook Page (facebook.com/erenatepaastylist) and Instagram account (@erenatepaa) but it is not linked to or part of Facebook or Instagram or any other entity. Entrants must currently live in New Zealand and have a current physical residential address to post to in New Zealand. Submissions will only be eligible if they meet the above criteria and successfully complete and submit the form above.

Detail of items in this giveaway: All items are brand new and unused. No items are able to be exchanged for cash or refunded by me or any other party.

Nature of items and  transfer of items: Once the item is sent and received by you, the item and it’s use is therefore the responsibility and risk of the winner/new owner.

Sending of items: Items will be wrapped carefully and sent at my cost via tracked NZ post to the winners from Tuesday 4th October 2016 unless arranged otherwise with the individual winner. While every care has been taken to describe the item and every care will be taken in sending the item to the winner, I take no responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur in transit or once the item leaves my care. However I would ask that anyone who wishes to contact me for this reason may do so by emailing me at style@erenatepaa.com (I’d like to think of myself as a fair and reasonable person!).
