Ladies let the shopping begin! If you enjoy shopping and high drama then you have to shop at The Paradise!!!!

Some period drama-loving friends and I are throwing a big online party to celebrate Masterpiece airing season one of The Paradise. 

There will be a premiere night Twitter chat, weekly recaps, and to kick things off . . . a fun contest involving one of our favorite pastimes – SHOPPING! This seemed appropriate as The Paradise is a Victorian-era department store where plucky heroine Denise Lovett is employed in the Ladieswear Dept. 

Read on to find out how you can enter this exciting contest and be eligible to win several FABULOUS prizes! 

1) Take a photo (camera pix are fine) of yourself shopping for one (or more) of the following items: 


I was supposed to stalk the Hosiery department, but I got sidetracked by the slippers!!! I’ve narrowed it down to these two pairs!

Let me know in the comments if I should go with the grey or the black and white with pink bow! 

This is how you can enter the contest!!!

You will receive ONE entry per picture of an item listed above (up to 8 entries.) You can earn a bonus FIVE entries if you submit a photo of yourself with a cute/crush-worthy shop employee. (Male or female.)

Hope you’ll stop by Sunday evening for the Twitter chat and all things The Paradise.

Happy reading and reviewing,


  1. Buy them both, Elizabeth! You need the grey pair to wear with your coffee. The blank, white and pink pair to wear with your mimosa. Life is complicated. It requires more than one pair of slippers.

    Looking forward to our big tweet during the season premiere of The Paradise this Sunday. Yay!

  2. Black not blank! Dang it, I hate it when I leave a typo in a comment. And I can't let it go without being corrected. I might develop a twitch later in the day just thinking about it. *overwhelmed by typos*

  3. I, also, vote for the black and white slippers with the saucy pink bow! They're just more girly and fun!

    Looking forward to our #ParadiseParty chat on Sunday night! Will be a blast, I'm sure. ๐Ÿ˜‰
