Summer in the City Girlfriend Giveaway - Contest!

You would have to be living under a rock to not know that Sex and the City 2 opens today and of course I am looking forward to seeing what my friends Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte have been up to!  We know the girls for their great hair and constant cocktails.  Of course being normal people, we don't have that kind of money but Goody, Andrea and Skyy Vodka can give us the lifestyle at a DIY price! Check out the nifty guide they sent to get your favourite SATC look -
I don't know how I feel about do-it-yourself brazilians, but I guess that's what the vodka is for...

Better yet, they have been good enough to offer up a prize pack to one of our lucky readers!

Here's what you can win:
Goody's entire Simple Style Collection - before they hit the stores!
A full summer supply of Andrea Professionals waxing products including their best selling Brazilian Hard Wax
Fiji Water to help hydrate after your girls night out!  - Oh who are we kidding, it's to help that wicked hangover you are going to have after consuming the -
SKYY Vodka Kit - complete with 750ml bottle of the official vodka of Sex and the City 2 (why don't I have an official liquor, that's what I want to know!) drink recipes and more!

Worth winning?!  Of course it is!  And don't worry, your chances are good I am absolutely not going to let Christelle enter even though she desperately wants that vodka!  This contest is open to Canadian residents 19 years old and older. All you have to do is join Beauty Crazed as a follower if you aren't one already.  You can either do it through Google or through Networked Blogs on Facebook - you can find both signups on the right hand side of the Beauty Crazed site.  Once you belong to our crazy family just leave a reply to this post letting us know you want in and which Sex and the City girl you are most like and why.   If you give the contest link a tweet and/or post it on your blog, there's an extra entry in it for you!  Including an e-mail address would be extra helpful and you can write it like this - info(at)beautycrazed(dot)ca - so the bots can't find you but we can.  If you prefer not to leave your info on a public post, please leave a post saying you want to enter and then e-mail us your info - info@beautycrazed.ca, please put "Summer in the City Contest" in the subject line.  Winner to be decided by random drawing and you have until June 11th to enter.

And because I love cocktails and think everyone should have a SATC2 party, I scoped out the recipes for you:


Glamour Girl - ode to Carrie Bradshaw


Fresh ice
2 oz. SKYY Vodka
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup (heat 2 parts sugar and 1 part water to a simmer, stirring, until sugar dissolves.  Let cool)
Splash créme de cassis
2 tbsp sugar

Place sugar on saucer.  Pour a splash of créme de cassis onto another saucer and tip the top of a martini glass into it to coat.  Dip into the sugar to form a rim.  Add ice, vodka, lemon and lime juices and syrup to a cocktail shaker.  Shake well.  Strain into prepared martini glass.  Carefully pour a few drops of créme de cassis on top of the drink at the side of the glass; it will float to the bottom.


Blonde Ambition - for Samantha of course


Fresh ice
1/8 of a fresh lemon
1 1/2 oz SKYY vodka
1 oz fresh orange juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
5 raspberries, plus one for garnish
Squeeze and drop lemon into cocktail shaker.  Add ice, vodka, orange juice, simple syrup and raspberries.  Shake well and strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with a raspberry.








Red Over Heels - pays tribute to Miranda


Fresh ice
3 red grapes, cut into halves
2 fresh basil leaves, plus one for garnish
2 oz SKYY vodka
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz simple syrup
Muddle grapes and bail in the bottom of a cocktail shaker.  Add ice, vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup.  Shake well and strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with basil leaf.












Park Avenue Princess -  for Charlotte, who else?


Fresh ice
1 1/2 oz SKYY Vodka
3 oz lemon-lime pop
1/8 of a fresh lemon
1/2 oz red wine
Pack a tall glass with fresh ice.  Squeeze lemon over top and add to glass.  Add vodka and pop.  Stir well.  Float red wine on top.
