Honeymoon packing tip #10 – Make Room for RuMe!

If you’re like me, you never know when you’re going to find something you need – on a vacation, on your way home, or as you’re heading out. Since I love the planet as much as I love shopping, I have taken to carrying a reusable tote in my bag at all times.


Sure there are lots of these on the market but my favorite comes from
RuMe. They are super small and light when folded and large enough for groceries or a day’s worth of shopping when unfolded. Best of all, they are super sturdy (think groceries for the week) and they fit perfectly over your shoulder keeping your hands free. I also discovered that they can also double as a beach bag – here we are in Anguilla last month:

They’re available in an array of sizes and patterns so order one or a few to throw in your honeymoon suitcase. They would also make nice bridesmaid gifts or destination wedding Out of Town bags.

Nifty, Eco-Friendly Personalized Gift Idea

Staying hydrated is super important for summer brides and bridal parties! I love the idea of giving your bridesmaids and groomsmen personalized and eco-chic SIGG water bottles from CafePress.


You simply enter a personal message or date, select your design template (or upload your own artwork or photo) and voila, you’re done!

These bottles are great to bring along on your travels too…

Are you a Recessionista Bride?

Weddings are expensive but The Broke-Ass Bride just launched a cool new site called Bride$hare to help out today’s Recessionista Brides!


It’s a fabulous way to hook up with other brides to share the cost of rentals, decorations, gowns, bridal accessories and much more. Or maybe you’re just lazy and want someone to plan everything so you can just show up. Either way, recycling is good for the environment!

Tuesday giveaway! Aruba, Jamaica ooh I wanna take ya. To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama.

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.
