This Contest Is Over: WIN A Book and a Bikini: A Copy of Meeting Your Half-Orange and a Kushcush Bikini!

Note: This contest has been completed. But check out the book and bikini anyway, as they make for a perfect summer love package.

Who’s ready for a dose of sunshine? To celebrate the new paperback for Meeting Your Half-Orange: An Utterly Upbeat Guide to Using Dating Optimism to Find Your Perfect Match, I’m doing a giveaway: Win a brand new paperback of Meeting Your Half-Orange and a fabulous Kushcush “Milla” bikini to wear on your winter beach vacation while you read it! What a perfect way to attract your other half.

Kushcush is a Los Angeles-based company founded by designer Kerry Cushman (see the whole gorgeous line here and read her posts at Designer Style Diaries). Kushcush suits have been featured in W, In StyleOK!, Marie Claire, WWD and on the E! network and the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit book Heaven and have been worn by Kim Kardashian, Jessica Biel, Nicole Ritchie, Audrina Partridge, Nicky Hilton and others. And if you win the giveaway, it will also be worn by you! This “Milla” style is part of the as-yet-unavailable Spring 2011 line and flattering on absolutely every body—so good, the style made the Us Weekly Buzz-o-Meter because they thought so, too.

If you don’t have a beach trip planned yet, well, what better way to look forward to one than with a hot new bikini (hello, healthy body inspiration) and an optimistic book to read on the sand, right? The way I see it, “A Book and a Bikini” is the perfect formula for feeling fab about yourself as you set off toward meeting your half-orange.
