Giveaway: Cinderella Rules

On the other side of the Wardrobe servants sort out fancy slippers, shoes and boots.

Fancy a bit of chick-lit?

The Cinderella Rules
by Donna Kauffman

Description from the amazon:
THERE’S A LITTLE BIT OF CINDERELLA IN EVERY WOMAN . . .

. . . except Darby Landon, or so she thinks before meeting the three fairy godmothers of Glass Slipper, Inc. They guarantee they can bring out the princess in any woman. But they’ll have their work cut out for them with Darby, who’s more comfortable in jeans and cowboy boots than designer gowns. But when she’s called from her Montana ranch to squire her impossible-to-please father’s star client around the D.C. social scene, Darby has to turn into the queen of chic . . . and fast.

Between torture-chamber sessions of tweezing and teasing, and horrifying lessons on place settings, Darby finds herself drawn into a fairy-tale romance of the very adult variety with Shane Morgan, the devastatingly sexy (and reluctant) heir to one of the city’s largest companies. But when another Prince Charming arrives on the scene, Darby‘s caught between the woman she is and the woman she’s supposed to be, between two very different irresistible bad boys. Now Darby has to choose her own happy ending . . . and with the help of three very unusual fairy godmothers, this modern-day Cinderella is determined to stay dancing way past midnight—no pumpkins required.

  2. I learned that I am ignorant when it comes to shoes and that there are some crazy women out there! Giving up chocolate or sex for a pair of shoes? *shudders at the thought*

  3. I thought it was odd that a lot of women wear shoes that are too small for them! That's just a sad day! I always err on too big rather than too small (comfort over style, babe).

  4. I learned that the average woman owns 19 pairs of shoes!

  7. I learned that Darlene Flynn owns 7,765 shoe-related items. That's freaking crazy! Where does she have the room to put all of those shoes?!

    (I also learned I am NOT the average woman because I don't own 19 pairs of shoes and am not a size 8. Slightly depressing D: )

  8. I was stunned to learn that platform shoes, or chopines, were worn by prostitues to elevate them in doorway - thus by increasing their height, they were more easily noticed by potential customers!

    (thinking back to my high school years and 70's platform shoes ... don't remember ever getting propositioned, by golly lol)

  10. I didn't know why heels improved the sex life...but I was surprised by that reason. I got less than half of the questions right. I guess I'm not a fashion maven! *lol* I already signed the guestbook today.

  12. The average woman wears a size 8 which makes me happy as I am an 8 1/2 and always felt that was kind of big. I've always told people shoe size corresponds to IQ, lol...

  15. Signed the guestbook.
    After taking the quiz I learned most women wear shoes that don't fit proper. I'm so glad I'm not one of these women.

  16. I learned that wearing a 3-inch heel strengthens pelvic muscles, also increasing their ability to contract--it's an effortless, on-the-go version of Kegels.

  17. I find it amazing that 88% of women wear shoes that are to small for their feet.

  21. women spend 40 hours and 30 minutes shopping for shoes :D fascinating. I think for some girls, a lot more than that!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow! I learnt that women often wear shoes that are too small for their feet, leading to sprains and injury. It's pretty sad, considering women make lots of money nowadays (comparing to the past) and still can't buy shoes that fit...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Platform shoes were a way for prostitutes to get noticed!
    Did not know that!

  30. I learned there are women giving up chocolate or sex (???) for a pair of shoes.
    I think one thing has nothing to do with the other!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I learned that Darlene Flynn is really crazy for shoes!
    7,765 itens? That's 5 lifetimes worth of shoes (at least)

  32. I signed the guestbook. I learned that the contemporary stiletto was invented in the 1950s by Italian shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo.

  33. I had no idea Salvatore Ferragamo invented the modern stiletto (and that he made the 1st pair for Marilyn Monroe)!

    I didn't know either that wearing high heels was good for one's sex life (I mostly thought it was good for the confidence, not that it was good for pelvic muscles!)
