Carolyn’s Kitchen-Cooking in Style Giveaway!

Cooking is always something fun. I’m the type of person that loves “tinkering” with recipes I find or coming up with my own stuff!

Now those of you that have caught on…I love original styles and I love Pin Up Styles! Now you’re probably thinking where am I going with this (Alright Jenna-Cooking then Style? WHAT) But there’s an awesome company I wanted to share with you that is for Cooking AND style!

Carolyn's Kitchen-Cooking in Style Giveaway! 1

Carolyn’s Kitchen Online offers vintage-inspired aprons and dish gloves in a wide and beautiful array of styles. Carolyn West has created this incredible line with designs that are perfect for everyone! I love all of the designs and could find something for each of my friends easily! From her website-
Inspired by a gorgeous apron and glove set from Paris, Carolyn began by discovering 1940’s patterns and bringing them to life with her modern interpretive designs. “I wanted to bring back the glamour,sexiness, and cuteness of a bygone innocent era. The gloves and fabrics are new and nicer – it’s a new and improved version of the ’40’s.”

Carolyn’s designs have been featured in a variety of magazines and celebrity fans include such names as Bo Derek, Laila Ali, and Cheryl Burke!

Carolyn has been awesome enough to sponsor a giveaway for you readers here at For the Love of Baby! One lucky winner will win the Orange Sweetheart Apron and Matching Sweetheart Dish gloves!
