There are few things I’d rather be doing than relaxing on the beach with a good book. And while it may be cold outside (or an absolute tundra as the case may be), my 2011 swim collection and a sunshine-y new paperback are about to hit stores. To celebrate, we’re doing a giveaway to get you into an utterly optimistic state of beach bliss!

Win a fabulous Kushcush “Milla” bikini and a copy of the adorably inspiring book Meeting Your Half-Orange by Amy Spencer!

On Harper Bazaar’s “Hot List” and #1 on Star Magazine’s “Must List,” Meeting Your Half-Orange: An Utterly Upbeat Guide to Using Dating Optimism to Find Your Perfect Match is an inspiring and charming read that reminds us to look on the bright side in life and love. Although I’ve been blissfully married for 10 years, I love the message in the book (so did Glamour, Cosmopolitan UK and Jillian Michaels!) and found many areas of life to apply the book’s power of positive thinking. Read for a healthy dose of optimism or share with your single girlfriends. And for a daily dose, check out Spencer’s blog at

If you don’t have a beach trip planned yet, well, what better way to look forward to one than with a HOT new bikini (hello, healthy body inspiration!) and an optimistic book to read on the sand. Kushcush has been worn by Kim Kardashian, Jessica Biel, Nicole, Ritchie, Audrina Patridge and Nicky Hilton. And if you win the giveaway, it will also be worn by you! This “Milla” style is part of the Spring 2011 line and flattering on all body types – so good, the style made the UsWeekly Buzz-o-Meter because they thought so, too!


Contest runs from Tuesday, January 11th to Friday, January 14th at 12 midnight.

To Enter: Comment below with one thing you “love” about yourself or your life. Maybe you love your friends. Or your job. Or your quirky sense-of-humor. Or your freckles. Or, uh, maybe you love your taste in bikinis and dating books. That’s it. Just tell us what you love in the comment box below and you’ll be entered to win!

Every Kushcush bikini reads “Love Your Bikini ” on the tag. Now it’s your turn… tell us what YOU love!

Happy thoughts and best of luck!



Note: Contest is only open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. One entry per person. We’ll choose the winner from comments on and in a random drawing. Be sure you are using a working email with your comment, as we’ll be notifying you via email after January 15th if you’ve won to get your address and bikini size.
