In honor of today (Black Friday) and Monday (Cyber Monday), I thought I’d get in on the action and do a weekend-long giveaway of something awesome: one year of free shaving with my personal favorite razor, Harry’s! Isn’t that a men’s razor, you ask?

I’ve partnered with Darling Magazine to give away two pretty prints—the Darling Magazine mission statement print, and the persona print of your choosing (I consider myself part Achiever, part Stylist). I personally am in love with the Issue No. 3 prints by Emma Block (shown at the top), but if you win you are welcome to choose any one print from the Issue No. 1 collection or the Issue No. 3 collection. Also, is that mission statement not the most inspiring and uplifting thing? Such good thoughts to dwell on. I think it would make a nice addition to a gallery wall.
