A Pretty Chic Giveaway


While I love my iPhone and am slightly addicted to my e-mail and the internet, I am more traditional when it comes to taking notes. As a blogger, I always need to be prepared to capture unexpected inspiration. I usually carry a camera and a small notebook in my handbag for when blogging moments arise. I may jot down blogging ideas that come to me out of the blue or to do something as simple as making a list of items to buy at the grocery store or making a note of a doctor’s appointment.

These chic little notebooks from Pretty Chic SF come in several cute patterns and fit the bill perfectly. Pretty Chic SF has teamed up with La Dolce Vita to giveaway one of these notebooks to a lucky winner.



1. To enter the giveaway, simply visit Pretty Chic SF and leave a comment on this blog post telling me which pattern is your favorite. In order to officially enter the contest, you must follow La Dolce Vita on Blogger, Facebook, or Twitter (if you already follow LDV on one network, please choose to follow on another). Please include your e-mail address, so that I may contact you if you are the winner.

4. Post about this giveaway on Twitter with a link to this blog post for another entry (follow La Dolce Vita on twitter in order to show me your tweet). It is up to you to return to this post to enter your additional entry after tweeting about the giveaway.

Good luck, everyone!

  1. I’m a pretty big fan of the hounds tooth pattern. Love the color palette they use for all of them though!

  2. I’m a notebook lover – in fact, I go ga-ga over pretty much any paper product! And these notebooks are lovely, Paloma!!

    I’m already a follower of your blog via google and Facebook, but I just deleted my Twitter account.

    And if I could choose a fave from Pretty Chic SF’s Etsy site I’d pic the Blue Geometric. It was hard to choose because I luv several!!

  3. I just signed up to follow you on google and will do a post about it tonight. I LOVE the gray zebra print, I’m a landscape designer and this would be PERFECT to stash in my bag when a great idea strikes! Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Love this giveaway, something useful and very pretty I might add. Thank you for such a great giveaway, I would love to be put in the drawing, Kathysue

  7. I just got the keys to my new apartment and was surprised to see an old skeleton key on the key chain that is still in use, so maybe it’s a sign that I should pick the skeleton key print as my favorite!

    Though I’d never turn down a cute houndstooth print, it would match the file folders on my desk!

  8. She is SUCH a great etsy seller (and very sweet girl as well!). These notebooks are too cute! I would love to win one of these for a friend of mine who loves pretty organizing! Oh, and I’m a follower of your blog on blogspot πŸ™‚

  9. I love these adorable notebooks! I also loved your idea about keeping one on hand to jot down blog ideas. My fave is the grey houndstooth. I have a very new blog and would love to do a post on your give away. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  10. i am OBSESSED with the white with the gold keys. they are all cute but this one wins because both the colors and the pattern are classic. while keys may be a little bit trendy right now, they are most definitely always in style and anyone could tote one of these around!

    LOVE IT!

    ps i keep a little notebook with my at all times as well to jot down….it’s just so much better than taking creative notes on an iphone πŸ™‚

  11. These are such darling notebooks! Like you, I use my phone/laptop for pretty much everything in my life, but I always carry notebooks in my purse with my camera for any inspirational ideas. Thanks for showcasing these! My favorite is the blue geometric notebook. I follow you on twitter @nelsonles

  12. I LOVE the Grey Hound notebook! I also LOVE your blog, especially being a Houstonian, I learn something cool and new everyday about my own city from you! πŸ™‚

  13. First~ Thanks for such a great giveaway! I LOVE notebooks:).

    My favorite is the coral geometric.

  14. I love the coral geometric version! I am a HUGE list person and I love to have a little notebook handy to write out ideas and to-dos. Great designs!

  15. My favorite is the black geometric! Despite how great my iphone is, there is definitely something about being able to write an actual note!
