My home team, the Lakers, won the NBA championship! Fantasizing about watching them court side, à la Jack Nicholson, I entered the Right Guard "Win a Trip to the Finals 2010" Sweepstakes. While I won't have the luxury of sitting close to Jack, I did win Second Prize -- a $50 Gift Card from Walgreens! So people, it does pay to enter!
And speaking of luxuries, Small Luxury Hotels of the World via Elle Decor is giving away one four-night stay at one of their charming independent hotels located in more than 75 countries around the world. Choose from a variety of luxurious accommodations, from a serene spa retreat, to a rustic country villa, or an old English country house. You know I'm going to Paris. St-Germain-des-Prés's L'Hôtel, a dramatic expression of Parisian panache with decadent décor, a Michelin-starred restaurant, a romantic small pool and sauna in the cellars, and original works of art by Jean Cocteau, sounds tempting. So does the Relais Christine, a 16th century mansion turned hotel, which is hidden behind pretty entrance gates on the Left Bank. Then, there's the Hôtel San Régis, a lavishly decorated townhouse hotel, converted from a prestigious private mansion near Avenue Montaigne. Decisions, decisions. What would you choose? Jump into the lap of luxury and enter.
