I’ve always loved the word GORGEOUS. All my life the word has made me smile. It just evokes that kind of emotion for me. And – beyond that – I love what it means.
1. Beautiful; very attractive.
2. Very pleasant.
One of my close blogging-mama-designer-extraordinaire-friend’s – the uber talented Christine Koh – has created an incredibly special Greeting Card called Hello, Gorgeous over at Posh Peacock. I know I usually dispense fashion and beauty advice in regards to clothes and makeup and shoes and accessories… but I feel fashion and beauty (especially for moms) can be found in so many different “accessories” in our lives! Like a gorgeous Greeting Card.
But for me, it’s not just the beauty and gorgeousness of the card that makes it fashionable, it’s the story behind it.
In May, Christine’s friend and also a contributing writer to Boston Mamas) Sarah Feather (aka The Carcinista) died after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. After Sarah passed away, Christine wanted to honor her spirit. Christine writes, “Sarah was smart, funny, loving, and incredibly stylish. She also was wonderfully “old school” in her thank you etiquette — utilizing the US postal system — so I decided to design a greeting card in her honor.”
Christine set out to create something gorgeous… and that she did! The Hello, Gorgeous card is the beautiful result.
The colors (aqua and pink) were her favorite, the clovers are representative of an icon she loved (and I felt them fitting, as all of us who knew her were lucky to have her in our lives), and the salutation is classic Sarah (and I credit our mutual friend Paige for changing the original “Hello” to “Hello, Gorgeous” when I floated a mock up by her during the design phase). I love how these cards came out and the fuschia envelopes look fantastic with the cards. Also, they’re eco-friendly…printed on 100% recycled content using soy and vegetable-based inks. And I’m donating 50% of the proceeds from this card to benefit ovarian cancer research. A trifecta of awesomeness, no?
This card (literally) had me at HELLO and I placed my order this morning!
Be fashionably fabulous and honor Sarah by sending a Hello, Gorgeous to someone special in your life!
