STARBUCKS Fashionable Giveaway!

Starbucks Turns Heads at Fashion Week!
Enter to Win This Giveaway!

We are so excited about this amazing GIVEAWAY. We’ve teamed up with Starbucks to offer 2 of our readers the chance to win a fashionable Timbuktu Starbucks Messenger Bag (retails for $110.00) in addition to 4 bottles of Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino Light, the favorite drink among the ever-so fashionable at New York’s Fashion Week. This rich beverage contains only 100 calories and 60% less sugar than their classic Vanilla flavor, making it that much easier to justify the indulgence and a favorite for weight conscious fashionistas. Vanilla Light Frappuccino definitely turned heads at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week!

To celebrate this release of the New Vanilla Light Frappuccino, Starbucks set up a lounge in the tents at NY Fashion Week. Each day hundreds of fashionistas, bloggers, editors, celebs and models alike were found relaxing in the Starbucks Lounge. You can view this highlight reel and see the fashion world drinking the delicious light Vanilla Frappuccino. Oo-la-la!

We love sipping Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino Coffee Drink Light, a creamy blend of Starbucks coffee and milk, mingled with sweetly divine vanilla flavor. Starbucks uses only the finest Arabica beans to fulfill your deepest coffee cravings – creating a beverage that is rich and undeniably luscious. And the best part? Vanilla Frappuccino Coffee Drink Light contains 50% fewer calories and 60% less sugar than our classic Vanilla. A perfect way to indulge yourself!

Tell us why you want to win this Starbucks Goody! Two winners will be chosen at random on April 5th, 2010. Giveaway is open to US and Canada residents only.

    Timbuk2 bags last FOREVER- I still have mine from college! And of course I love Frappuccinos. I haven't tried the light version yet but it would make me feel slightly less guilty about indulging…

    Found you from The Fashionable Housewife! These Starbuck's drinks are rare treats for me. I always go with the Mocha, but would love to try the Vanilla! As for the messenger bag, my daughter could use this! She'll be getting a laptop computer to take college courses in high school next year. She also isn't that in to purses, so a messenger bag would fit the bill perfectly!

    Starbucks and is light, which I have
    to drink because of cholesterol issues, I would enjoy trying. The bag is great looking and useful, too!
