Fashion Flash Beauty and a Book Giveaway

I’m so excited to be bringing you another Fashion Flash Beauty and a Book Giveaway. Fashion Flash is an influencer/blogger group for women over 40. Each month we host giveaways that pair a book with beauty products. Right now we have several different giveaways going on. Follow the group on Instagram to see all of the fantastic giveaways going on at any given time.

I had so much fun hosting last time that I couldn’t wait to get started again. This month I have a fun Valentine’s Day themed giveaway for you. We’ll be looking at a book from Nancy Herkness and giving away some fantastic prizes.

Second Time Around by Nancy Herkness

The book is titled “Second Time Around.” It’s from the author’s Second Glances series. If you love reading romance books that aren’t of the cheesy variety, you’ll want to check this one out.

About the book:

“Kyra Dixon, a blue-collar girl from the boondocks, is dedicated to her job at a community center that matches underprivileged kids with rescue dogs. When she runs into Will Chase–Connecticut blue blood, billionaire CEO, and her old college crush–she’s surprised that he asks a favor from her: to be his date for his uptight family’s dreaded annual garden party. If his parents don’t approve, all the better.

Kyra’s not about to say no. It’ll give her a chance to be oh-so-close to her unrequited love. What begins as a little fling turns so mad hot, so fast, that Kyra finds herself falling all over again for a fantasy that won’t come true. How can it? She doesn’t belong in Will’s world. She doesn’t want to. But Will does want to belong in hers.

All he has to do now is prove it. Will is prepared to give up whatever is necessary to get what his heart most desires.”

About the author:

Nancy Herkness is the award-winning author of the Wager of Hearts, Whisper Horse, and Second Glances series, as well as several other contemporary romance novels. With degrees in English literature and creative writing from Princeton University, she has earned the New England Readers’ Choice award, the Book Buyers Best Top Pick honor, and the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award, and she is a two-time nominee for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award.Nancy is a native of West Virginia but now lives in suburban New Jersey with a goofy golden retriever.

peace and love necklace by Nancy Davis

Next on the list for this giveaway is a beautiful necklace from jewelry designer Nancy Davis. The Peace and Love necklace is from her boutique collection and is valued at $58. I love this necklace because 1. I love hearts  2. It’s fun to wear and  3. It’s so sparkly and pretty and 4. Most importantly, I love what the necklace stands for and the foundation that it supports.

Jewelry designer Nancy Davis “has dedicated her life to inspiring hope in the lives of others. In this she finds peace and love – the inspiration for her jewelry collection and clothing line. After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Nancy launched the Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis in 1993, a not-for-profit dedicated to eradicate the disease. To date the foundation has raised in excess of $30 Million to fund the Center Without Walls, a collaboration of the nation’s seven foremost MS research institutions.”
