Giveaway: Confessions of a Shopaholic!

One of my favorite movies of the year was Confessions of a Shopaholic - the story of a flat-broke fashion junkie who writes a column on budgetting.

cpnfessionsofshopaholictwodiscdvd(Gee, I wonder why I’m a fan???)

This movie is beyond self-referential, it’s hilarious and cool, and I think everyone I know who saw it got a kick out of it.
Like, the all-important scarf.
Or the temple of shopping.

This movie is based on Sophie Kinsella’s best selling novels of the same name, about a fashion-loving New Yorker writer who trades frocks for finance and finds love! (Well, with a little drama in between.)

Even if you saw the movie already, you will want to read on, look what you will find on the Blue-Ray and DVD!

Both the Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD Editions of Confessions of a Shopaholic include:

• Bloopers
• Deleted Scenes
• “Stuck with Each Other” Music Video by Shontelle Featuring Akon

Plus, available exclusively on Blu-ray Hi-Def:
• “Accessory” Music Video by Jordan Taylor

• “Takes Time to Love” Music Video by Trey Songz

• Behind the Fashion – A collection of insider peeks at the making of Confessions of aShopaholic, including:

*Wardrobe by Patricia Field – A look inside her studio!
*Temple of Shopping – The inspiration for Rebecca Bloomwood’s fashion wonderland
*The Green Scarf – Learn more about the all-important accessory that drives
Rebecca to take desperate measures!
*New York Fashion Central – A style-centric tour of the home of more shopaholics
per square foot than anywhere else on the planet.
*Sample Sale Madness – The filming of the film’s hilariously chaotic shopping spree.
*Window Shopping – The Shopaholic team brings store windows to life along
shopping mecca Madison Avenue.

To add to the excitement, I am doing a contest – one grand-prize winner will receive the blu-ray of Confessions of a Shopaholic, and two runners-up will each receive a DVD copy. To have your chance to win, please share what makes you a shopaholic. Deadline to enter is June 26!

    I would love to see this. I like fun movies!

  • http://matthewanddeanna.blogspot.com Deanna

    I go to the mall every day for lunch and *ahem* window shop while I’m there. My husband constantly laughs at me with my bags I bring home. HOWEVER, he fully appreciates that I find Christmas, birthday, and baby presents on sale (75 % off) during the year and we spent a fraction on gifts that we would’ve spent if I waited until the actual holiday. He calls me a shopaholic, but I call myself a smart shopper. :)

    By the way, I’ve loved Shopaholic since it first came out- I hope they turn the other books into movies too.

  • Latoya

    What makes me a shopaholic? Well, I go out to the stores even when I know I don’t have any money! I tell myself that I just want to look around so that when I do get some I know exactly what I want to buy! And whenever Im bored I like to go to department store websites and see whats on clearance. Its hard habit to break!

  • Sara

    In between calls at work I’m shopping on the internet. Looking for the next “it” shoes. Or my next favorite smelling lotion, bauble, or dress. Hopefully my boss doesn’t see this…

  • Jennifer C.

    I am a shopaholic because I know what days my favorite stores receive shipments, so I can be the first to see the new merchandise! I would love to win the DVD! Thanks!

  • http://www.thatshideous.com deka

    i shop online sample sales constantly.
    i browse union square SF every week always finding something i have to have.
    i’m great at approximating when something i want will go on sale and for how much.
    i only work part-time and shouldnt be shopping at all!

  • http://auntiethesis.blogspot.com shel

    What makes me a shopaholic? Come peek in my closet..lots of the clothes still have tags and I bought them because I had to “have” them. When my friends need to borrow an item of clothing or accessory, they come shopping at “Shel’s Closet”.

  • Tracey Byram

    I’m always on the lookout for a bargain. I spend hours going from rack to rack and store to store. The perfect therapy for shattered nerves.

  • Anne

    I think its genetic and its been passed down from past generations lol I belong to countless beauty and fashion blogs and online sample sites! Hubby thinks I’m a bit koo koo!

  • Marti

    Shopping is my therapy, when I am sad it makes me happy, when I am stressed, it calms me down. Shopping is a reward for doing something right, it is a compensation for doing something wrong. Shopping is the answer to any situation. I am a proud Shopaholic.

  • Karen B

    Actually, I’m not a shopaholic anymore – I leave that to my DILs, grand/greatgranddaughters!

  • Heather

    I’m trying to be a reformed shopaholic, but I still go a little crazy for great shoes!

  • Cheryl W

    What makes me a shopaholic is when their are great sales at my favorite stores. I can’t resist going to check it out!

  • Margaret Smith

    I’m a shopaholic, but I do have one rule, never pay full price. I always buy items on clearance or that has a really good sale.
    Thanks so much!

  • Amber G

    I am a shopaholic because if something is on sale – I will snag it! Doesn’t matter if I need it or not. It’s so dumb…I will say, look I saved $50 on this Michael Kors handbag and neglect to mention that I still SPENT $500!

  • Lisette

    I’m a shopoholic because I can’t stop buying things on sale! Mainly books though so it’s not too bad haha

    I have read all the Shopaholic books, and love them! I have yet to see the movie and would love to win it.

    “Hi my name is Shelly, and I am a SHOPAHOLIC!” Yes, I will admit it. I can’t pass a sales rack or shelf. My eyes are always peeled for that wonderful sign marked SALE or CLEARANCE, two of my most favorite words ever. I will look and look through racks of clothes, dig through shelves and bins, just to find the right item. Oh, the joys of shopping.

  • Mia H. Beaudet

    What makes me a shopaholic is my daughter!! She always wants to “just look” but we always walk out with some bags of stuff!!

  • paul haddock

    The book was funny, I use the inet more

  • Jill H

    Well, I think my $30,000 in credit card debt will signify me as a shopaholic since that is all spent on clothes, furniture and electronics. Enough said :)

    I am on shopping detox right now from my husband. :(

    If I win, I’d prefer the regular DVD since I don’t have a blue-ray disc player (another item on my wish list ..hahah).

  • Lydia S

    Semi-annual replacement of credit cards because the magnetic data strip melts from the friction of running thru the card readers.

  • mj

    When you’re willing (like me) to spend hours and more digging through sales racks after sales racks, trying to find the perfect pieces to finish off the perfect outfits, you’re a shopaholic!

  • Tesa S.

    Haven’t been a “crazy” shopaholic for years, but recently found a store I really like and “bugged-out” a little bit. I used to be obsessed, but the economy has everyone tightening their budgets lately, and I’m included in that.

  • herblady

    Being online makes me a shopaholic! I have no interest in schlepping around to stores and waiting in lines to be attended to by rude salespeople, so being online is both a curse and a blessing! Now I hit all the sales I can every day and my hubby always wonders how much I’ve spent!

  • Nicole

    i can’t pass up a good sale and i live in the mall!!!

    Sale and clearance racks make me a shopoholic.

  • Ashley

    im a shopaholic because i have designer tastes.. without the budget

  • Charm

    I have become a PERFUME junkie! My husband bought me ONE perfume for Mother’s Day…and now I’m hooked. I have bought 3 new perfumes, swapped 3 perfumes with friends, and ordered (and received from friends) over 20 sample fragrances all within 2 and a half months!! It’s RIDICULOUS! My husband now says I have addictive habits….because once I get started with one thing….I’m just going to want more more more! Makeup is turning into another bad habit….and I rarely even wear makeup!!! I try to stay away from shoes because once I get my eye on one, I want to stay in the store forever! And we won’t even talk about handbags…

  • reeseG

    What make me a Shopaholic is that I will spend hours online to find the best deals for an item that I have been coveting. I love the thrill of the hunt I guess lol
