Win It: The Royal Treatment in Minnesota Monthly

We’ll call this one a literal Cinderella story. We’re looking for you—the woman who wants and deserves The Royal Treatment—a makeover with me and stylist Grant Whittaker. After fashion advice (we’ll make sure the glass slipper fits perfectly), hair and makeup, and some prepping, you’ll be photographed for the February issue of this very magazine!

Oh, but there’s more, for your very own Kate Middleton moment—sorry ladies, I regret to inform that Wills is not available—the winner will nab a walk-on role in the Ordway’s production of Cinderella on December 15! You’ll receive three tickets to the show so you can bring your nearest and dearest to watch your star turn, plus you and your guests will each receive $100 gift certificates to Schuler Shoes. Treat your party to dinner at the St. Paul Grill with a $100 gift card, too.

Talk about happily ever after! Register to win on the Ordway site. Register now—I can’t wait to see you at the shoot!


Now, we don’t want to leave the men out, so i thought I’d drop in a couple of cool deals going on today around town. To celebrate the end of Movember, the men at MartinPatrick3 are offering 20 percent off all their shaving supplies!

And then there’s the splashy new opening of Kiehl’s out at the Mall of America (Minnesota’s first standalone Kiehl’s boutique, no less). To celebrate the end of Movember, Kiehl’s staff will be performing complimentary shaves from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. for men ready to get rid of their month-long growth, plus they’ll donate $50 per shave to the Minnesota AIDS Project. And ladies, if you bring your gents into the store, they’ll donate an extra $50!
