Starbucks Holiday Preview Celebration

WINNER UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much to everyone that entered. I SERIOUSLY wish I had enough tickets to give to everyone – all of your comments were so sweet! Limited space is a factor as always though, and to keep things fair we used random.org to select the 10 winners, who are listed at the bottom of this post. We will also be notifying the winners via email. So excited to have you join in the holiday fun tomorrow! :)


[Original Post] Things have been extra busy around here lately due to a special holiday event HWTM is styling for Starbucks this Tuesday in NYC… and I’m thrilled to be able to extend an invitation to the event to 10 of our readers… plus a guest for each! Yay :)

I know… we had you at “cake pops”, right? ;) The party will be hosted near Gramercy Park in Manhattan. The exact location will be disclosed directly to the ticket winners.

Please enter below by 4pm EST Monday, November 7th. Just post a comment letting us know you’d like to attend! The TEN winners will be drawn randomly and announced both here and on Facebook at 6pm EST on Monday. Good luck!! :)
