Southern Living Style and Giveaway

Giveaway Closed

kathy [email protected] is the winner. I have emailed you Kathy. Congratulations!


To say I love Southern Living Magazine is an understatement. Yes me, a girl born and raised in Oregon, and a transplant to Oklahoma, loves Southern Living.

I cannot remember how I first found Southern Living Magazine, but we have received it at my husband’s office and/or home for years. It is a favorite both at home and the office.

Of course I love their food ideas and recipes, but I also love just looking through their magazines. From the garden ideas to the home ideas, it is a magazine I never get tired of looking through.

So, I was thrilled when I was contacted about reviewing Southern Living’s new book Southern Living Style. This is a book full of ideas for the home and I loved looking through it.

They talk about defining southern style, style on a budget, why things work, and how to reclaim it, which deals with turning old finds into something new.

And the good news is that not only did I receive Southern Living Style to review, Southern Living is giving away one book, to one of my readers.

To enter: All you have to do is leave me a comment. (But I would love to hear what you love about Southern Living.)

The giveaway will end Saturday October 1st at 6 pm CST.

If you are reading this by email you must click here and leave a comment on this post. Replying to this email will not count as an entry.

For more information please see my giveaway policy.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of Southern Living Style to review, but my thoughts and opinions are my own.

  5. My mother subscribed to Southern Living for as long as I know. When a new issue arrived in the mail, the first thing I would always do was look at the house plan.

I know subscribe to Southern Living and love everything about the magazine. I wish they would still include a houseplan in each issue.

    I would love to win! I have years worth of Southern Living magazines I wouldn’t give up for anything. Oh, and the yearly cookbooks, too! My Mother is 86 and the one magazine that she still reads every month is Southern Living. When I didn’t live in the South it would come every month and remind me of why I wanted to come home. You know, most people don’t understand why a true Southerner never seems to adjust to living some where else, but the people at Southern Living really get it. First opportunity I had to move back home I packed up my magazines and came back to the South where I belong!
