There are those certain books that everyone knows. These are the books that you immediately recognize as it is tucked into the back of an airplane seat, held by someone reading on the bus or peeking out of a purse. They sit happily on your book shelf, they sell over 3 million copies, and they turn into movies starring Kate Hudson. Something Borrowed is one of those book phenomenons. It’s a feel-good book and one that when you’re finished, you feel lucky for having experienced its charm.

We are feeling extra lucky and feel-goody because Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Baby Proof, Love the One You’re With, and Heart of the Matter, has teamed up with Spa Week. Emily’s new book Where We Belong, hitting shelves July 31st, is the Exclusive Book Sponsor for the Spa Week Spring 2012. Almost all of us here at Spa Week are personal fans of hers and half of us have read at least half her books, so we couldn’t be more excited!

Our partnership with Emily is a great way to further encourage personal wellness by making sure to take time for yourself to do your favorite things.

In addition to sponsoring, she’s letting us borrow some of her favorite things, and we’re giving them away! Enter for your chance to win a goody bag (more like duffel bag) of over $2,500 worth of prizes – all curated by Emily herself!
