Norman Reedus Giveaway

The Sun’s Coming Up…Like A Big Bald Head.  This provocative collection of photographs by Norman Reedus is a limited-edition collector’s volume.  This engaging book is eloquently and accurately described in a quote by fellow The Walking Dead actor Andrew Lincoln when he writes, “These photos are capricious. One moment brutal, the next beautiful, sexual, and vulnerable in equal measure.  In the blink of an eye, innocence turns to experience and everywhere there are masks.  Some of the most liberating and exuberant photos involve masks.  But my favorite images are playful and bewitching.”

Many were introduced to Norman Reedus through his brilliant acting portrayal of Daryl Dixon, the crossbow toting, survivalist and expert zombie killer who stars in AMC’s television sensation, The Walking Dead.  But what many Daryl Dixon fans don’t know is that Norman Reedus is a mulch-faceted artist that encompasses acting, film making, cinematographer, model, painter, sculptor, and photographer.  Norman’s art work has been exhibited worldwide and currently shows in galleries in New York, Berlin and Frankfort. 

Norman Reedus - SerafinoSays.com

The Sun’s Coming Up…Like A Big Bald Head is Norman Reedus’ inaugural photographic book (published and produced by Authorscape), which is a collection of photos taken throughout 15 years of world travel with the underlying philosophy of making “disturbing images beautiful.”  The photographs range from a maximum security prison in Moscow, to the insane world of a John Carpenter movie set, to a Tokyo beauty contest, to the Georgia countryside and many more international locations inclusive of dozens and dozens of indelible characters along the way.

Nation “Put The World On Ice” Survey Reveals:

Did you know, more than 85% of Americans say they feel summer’s pace has changed since they were kids, with more than two-thirds (67%) of Americans admitting that they will not be able to take time off to enjoy the summer months.

In the second annual “Put the World on Ice” survey*, sponsored by Keurig and the Brew Over Ice beverage collection, with questions crafted by life advice guru Liz Pryor, it is clear that the typically slow days of summer are a thing of the past, making it harder for busy Americans to unwind and relax. While the pace has changed, more than 75 percent of respondents are embracing a new definition of summer fun by saying they would consider adding “doing nothing” to their daily to-do list.

A snapshot on the nation’s attitude toward a balanced lifestyle:

Balancing Act

  • We strive for something that we won’t or can’t make happen
    • 98% of Americans report that balance in everyday life is either somewhat or very important, yet 65% of Americans are not able to make time for themselves at least once a day.
  • Put the World on Ice
    • 66% of Americans feel that a daily iced beverage is an important pick-me-up.


She Thinks . . . He Thinks

  • Women feel the shift in summer’s cadence more than men
    • 88% of females feel that the pace of summer has changed since they were a kid, while 82% of males feeling like summer has changed since they were a kid.
  • Men and women value balance differently
    • 70% of women consider balance important while only 60% of males consider balance important.


Mama Says. . .

  • Kids in the house = Less “me” time
    • Nearly 65% of parents** “rarely, if ever” take time for themselves.
  • Kids out of the house = More breaks in summer routine
    • Half (50.6%) of those surveyed without children will take their planned breaks in the summer routine; as compared to 38 % of those with kids.


Our “Inability to Switch Off”

Liz Pryor, author, life advice expert and Brew Over Ice spokesperson is available for comment and interviews. She believes these results are an indication of the shifting American mindset. Liz can offer ideas and tips for Americans about how to shift mindsets and achieve a more balanced lifestyle with attainable moments built into the everyday.

*Survey results include additional national findings, differences by gender, regional statistics and parents vs. non-parents. Based on 2,000 respondents during May 2013. Additional and raw data available upon request.

**Parents are those with “children under 18 living at home.”

“It’s a Linea Pelle Giveaway! Win A Beautiful Dylan East West Tote Valued At $495!”

I consider myself fortunate to style hair for fashion stories that grace the pages of leading magazines. With this good fortune come sneak peeks at next seasons clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories that consumers won’t see on the pages of fashion magazines for many months. In 2008, I was on a fashion shoot that introduced me to Linea Pelle. I styled the hair for models with the handbags draped from their shoulders and instantly fell in love with Linea Pelle.

Now fast forward to 2010. You can only imagine how excited I was to be booked on a job that would have me styling the hair of the Vice President and Creative Director at Linea Pelle, Andrew Cotton (@ACLPLA). From this unique perspective, I learned from the Designer the detail that goes into their signature Italian leather which is always pre-washed with enzymes for a soft hand feel. In addition to a great shoot, Andrew was kind enough to give me a personal tour of his latest collection.

It is with great pleasure and excitement that SerafinoSays, iSave A2Z, Coupon MamacitaGimmie Freebies, The Dealyo, Madame Deals & Wheel N Deal Mama announce the Giveaway of the newest Linea Pelle Dylan East West Tote.

The only issue I am having with this giveaway is I am not eligible to win :(

Our sponsor for this giveaway is Linea Pelle!  Linea Pelle is a handbag, belt and leather goods company that creates casual luxury goods for women that appreciate that perfect fusion between style and function. With luxe looks that can travel from day to night, this Southern California based brand produces beautiful leather products mixing refined quality and attention to detail with an effortlessly cool style. Special washed, treated and custom colored leathers define the Linea Pelle aesthetic.
