And the winners are…

Thanks to everyone who entered the custom postcard contest.  The lucky winners are Mely and Pita.  Read below to see how they plan to incorporate the postcards into their weddings.  Congratulations ladies!!!

Mely:  I am on the road as we speak – about to leave London St Pancras for Paris Gare de Nord on my way to study abroad with my darling fiance. We’ll be gone until new years and while I’ve planned most of the wedding, I procrastinated on invitations. I have this dream where we send post cards to all our guests as Save the Dates/Invitations from France, but finding 150 non-touristy post cards and mailing them internationally is almost prohibitively expensive. How much better would it be if we were able to show a picture of us abroad to get our relatives excited about our wedding (not to mention cut down on the number of postcards I’ve promised to write…)

I would totally use these and it would fit so well with our globetravelling personalities and our families and friends could enjoy a lovely photo of us from somewhere in France. (I promise, not the Eiffel Tower. Maybe a quaint scene of us at a cafe or in front of a grand cathedral…) Oh the possibilities!

Pita:  I hope I win this giveaway. I’d use the postcards as a thank you notes to our guests and also use it for the out of town bags since we’re doing a destination wedding.

GTB postcard contest

For my wedding, I used Custom Postcards to share instructions with our guests on how to upload their candid wedding photos to our Smugmug account. Cute right?

GTB photo postcard

What’s the next best thing to a spa treatment on a tropical beach getaway? Pevonia Botanica’s Tropicale De-Aging products!

For the last few weeks, I’ve been slathering myself (and my ever growing belly) with their Mango-Passion Fruit line and I can’t tell you how yummy I’ve been smelling. Even the Globetrotting Groom has noticed my soft skin.

Aside from smelling great, the body balm is rich, creamy and moisturizing but totally not sticky or greasy. The saltmousse scrub works great to polish away dead skin and the mist is so deliciously moisturizing. Best of all, the natural, organic products are formulated with Shea Butter, Collagen, Elastin, Pomegranate and other anti-aging tropical fruit extracts. So maybe I’m even starting to look a little younger! And they care too – Pevonia products are eco-packaged (recyclable/biodegradable), non-comedogenic and cruelty-free (no testing on animals).

All brides need soft skin. Wanna try it? Thanks to the kind people at Pevonia Botanica, I’m giving away a Tropicale Papaya-Pineapple Gift Set valued at $80! Just visit the Pevonia Botanica website and comment below with your favorite at home product or in spa treatment by midnight on Monday, July 6.

And, if you don’t win, you can experience Pevonia Botanica products at home or on your next vacation since their products are used at several top day spas and resorts around the world.
