Hey Gorgeous, The Blog


Dec 19

The BIG Relaunch Giveaway!

Guys, first of all thank you so much for yesterday. I am actually exhausted today from all of the love and support given through the blog, facebook, twitter and of course all of the cards, gifts, texts, calls, and emails. I had no idea the new look would be so well received and I am just thrilled to end 2012 on this positive note. I’m in the process of putting together my 2012 Wrap Up post (like I did last year here) and I can’t wait to add this week to it. But today I have even more good stuff to share and it’s that the huge giveaway I’ve been planning in celebration of the relaunch is OPEN.

Basically one lucky reader is going to win a Hey Gorgeous Events tote. And that tote bag as shown above is literally filled with incredible goodies from some of the best vendors and artists in the industry. Next week I’ll be blogging photos of the items going into the bag but let’s just say there’s something custom from Oatmeal and Lace, something cozy from Plum Pretty Sugar, something lovely for your iPhone from Emily Ley, something to send notes on from both Anastasia Marie Cards and Lemon and Lavender, something to dazzle in your ears from Vatne Designs and something to hold from Palomas Nest. There may be a few goodies in there from The Caramel Jar and Big Yellow Dog Designs too.

Yes. One person will win ALL OF THAT. I could do cartwheels about it!

So to enter it’s easy peasy. Go be a fan of the Hey Gorgeous Events facebook page. And leave a comment below letting me know what your most excited about for 2013. For extra entries you can tweet the giveaway but you have to include one of the above vendors in your tweet for it to count! You can also update your facebook status and include one of the above vendors in that status as well, for another extra entry. Next week I’ll be sure to share lots of gorgeous photos of all the stunning items sitting in that bag for one lovely lady to get her hands on. Talk about the perfect gift!

Happy giveaway day, blogettes! Let’s do this. Photo by Kelly Braman.

  7. NIcole Hess says:

    What I am looking forward to the most in 2013 is my husband graduating from college. He worked to support our family and allow me to be a stay at home mom until March of this year when he suffered a severe back injury and could no longer keep his job. He jumped into school, and has worked so hard to get through it for his family that he is due to graduate 4 months ahead of schedule. I am so proud of all he has done! I can’t wait to celebrate with him when he graduates from college for the 2nd time :)

  8. Geri Coates says:

    I am SUPER excited about the birth of my second child, another baby boy. Happiness :-D

  9. Andrea says:

  10. Really, I’m just obsessed with the new site & commenting on this blog.

    My heart can’t even truly handle all the expectation I have for 2013. 2012 was about Hope & going into 2013, my heart couldn’t be more full of it. BUT! The real excitement for 2013? The belief I just can’t seem to get out of my head?

    In 2013, I will be the exception to the rule.


  11. Christine says:

  13. I am most excited to win that prize bag! :) A new year is always exciting, I look forward to new adventures, fresh starts, successes and even failures, and the idea that we really don’t know what the next year will bring but that we’ll go at it full force and try to rock it like always!

    Congrats on the Relaunch, Rhi! I’ve been following you here, on FB & instragram for about 8 months now (since I found your DIY ribbon wands while planning our wedding) and I’m so excited for you! :) Everything is so lovely!
    What am I most excited about for 2013? That’s a hard question! I have so much to look forward to, but to name a few- our best friends are getting married in August & we are MOH and BM; experiencing all of the fun the first year of marriage brings & building OUR life- I love being a Mrs.! Possibly embarking on new adventures professionally (you’re a big inspiration for me there!) Also, possibly a move & purchasing our first home!
    Best of luck & warm wishes for a great holiday and Fabulous 2013!

  184. Abby Grace says:

    You know what I’m excited for in 2013? I’m stoked to do things the way I WANT to do them, not the way I think I’m SUPPOSED to do them. I’m excited to refine my client experience to make my clients feel loved like crazy, and I’m excited to finally feel like I can step up and be confident in my decisions because I, in and of myself, am qualified, and not because I feel like someone’s given me permission to do so. So there. :)

  185. I am most excited to meet my sweet baby boy. My husband and I are so thrilled for the expected arrival of our son, Zane just a few weeks after our one year anniversary! And we thought 2012 was a great year. Yay for 2013!

  186. I’m so excited about 2013 because I forsee great adventures. travels and meeting my special prince. I know this because my dead grandmother came to me in a dream on 1/31/12 she had a huge grin and reached out to me and clasped my hands together and told me to prepare for great adventures, a new love and unique travels. I woke up doing my happy dance in bed. 2013 bring it on!!!

I am excited for what 2013 will bring me, hopefully lots of new clients :) I am ready for whatever it will throw at me, it may be a struggle at times but exciting at the same time. Seeing you and others like you keeps me inspired. Keep up the great work Rhi.

    I’ve been following your FB page for over a year! Love every post, pretty picture or inspiration! Looking forward to 2013 because I feel some big changes coming in my life, looking forward to facing challenges and enjoying moments. I also look forward to seeing all the Hey Gorgeous weddings you post in 2013 too!!!

  196. Natasha B says:

    I am excited about finally putting into motion a business idea I have been sitting on for two years (yes, I have wasted two years thinking about it instead of working on it,) Hint hint: It involves the wedding industry. It’s so easy to sit back and hope things will happen, instead of actually taking action to make them happen. I’ve been inspired by so many wonderful wedding industry professionals and wedding bloggers (especially you Rhiannon) over the last two years.
    2013 will be my start to MAKING THINGS HAPPEN!

  197. Amanda L. says:

    Rhi, you are an inspiration. And this giveaway bag is amaze-balls!

    In 2013, I’m most excited about spending another year with my handsome hubby, making our new house a home, and living with increased passion, dedication, and love.

    Cheers to a happy New Year!

  198. Emilee Walch says:

    Hey Rhi!

    For 2013, I am most excited for some new beginnings and seeing where my career takes me this year.

    And of course, to see what YOU to this year! It’s been incredible watching you build this brand and business from the ground up. I’m glad I’ve been around to see it all from the beginning (Pink Sugar Desserts, anyone?!)

    Happy New Year, beautiful!


  199. I’m excited for the fresh start that comes with a new year, and the ability to apply last year’s lesson to this year. Happy 2013, doll!

  200. I’m a follower of your facebook page. 2013 is exciting for me, because I will be challenged to discover what I’m passionate about and what career I want to pursue.

  201. Priscilla Christine says:

    Hi Rhi,

    I am a huge fan of your work. I randomly found your instagram and I can’t get enough of that and your blog. I hope to one day use you as my wedding planner even though I am all the way in CA. Anyway, I am most excited for my own career growth in 2013. I just recently graduated college and fell into a job I love.

    Thanks for inspiring us all.

  202. I am excited to put HEART first this year and to pursue my heart’s greatest passions as purely as possible:)

  203. Malia says:

    Disregard that last comment please! I was having issues with my browser, I meant to say this:

    2012 was an amazing year and I know this year will be even greater. I set one goal for myself so far and that’s to read 40 books this year. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but I’m excited for all the good reads this year.

  204. Cherie B says:

    How lucky would I be to win this?!
    Fingers crossed!

  205. Just liked your facebook page! I am most looking forward to building my nutrition business in the new year!

  206. Jennifer says:

    I am excited to spend quality time with my hubby. He is in the military, and was gone quite a bit last year, so I am looking forward to some much needed quality time together… and maybe work on a baby too. haha! =)

  207. Heather says:

    2012 was an absolute amazing year, but what I am most excited about in 2013 is getting married to my best friend in Zanzibar, Tanzania. Zanzibar is where we got engaged in 2012 and Africa has a very special place in our heart because we both run an international development non-profit that works to create a world beyond poverty by investing in groundbreaking ideas, empowering local leaders, and engaging communities. We want to share the magic and culture of Africa with our closest family and friends.

    I have been following your blog, FB page and twitter for about 6 months now as I am originally from Northern Michigan and we were considering having our wedding there. Even though we decided on Africa, I still greatly respect the business you have built and love your work! Thanks for being an inspiration!

  208. Amanda says:

    Congrats Rhi! My goal for the year is to be more positive and to make those around me as happy as I can. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for 2013 xox

  209. Missy Black says:

    I’m excited to relax and “let go” of some heavy issues I’ve been carrying around with me in 2012. I’m ready to rise like cream to the top, just like champagne bubbles. More smiles and a lightweight attitude!

  210. Mackenzie says:

    I am most excited for our delayed-but-going-to-be-worth-it Honeymoon!!!

  211. krista says:

    I think I’m most excited about all the adventures I hope to go on and all the great people who I will get to adventure with. Im a recent college grad so I foresee lots of exciting things in the coming year!

  212. Amanda says:

    What I’m most looking forward to in 2013 is not comparing myself to others any longer. It’s no good for me–it gets you nowhere. I’m looking forward to becoming a better version of myself!

  213. Victoria says:

    Rhi, I have never enjoyed reading descriptions of products more than this! You have such a big talent for what you’re doing, and like most of your fans I can tell you love what you do.

    I am most excited for learning how to be “me” again. I lost sight of the things I want most in life, and now that I’ve realized it, I want 2013 to be the year I push myself in school, push my limits finding a new job and most of all not being afraid to have big changes happen in my life.

    Thanks for all the inspiration you provide! Its very much appreciated.

  214. Sara Pensinger says:

    I am SO so very excited to to watch my sweet baby boy, Lennon grow, giggle and explore life in 2013! I also can’t wait to have tons of fun, love and laughter with my hubby <3

  314. Hi Rhi! I have been a huge fan of yours since I discovered HGE in 2011! I interned with Honey Bee Invites and we always looked forward to your posts and inspirations! I am currently planning our wedding and would have been over the moon to have been able to have HGE plan & design our big day (but that old budget thing has inspired me to take the planning on myself)! You have such an amazing talent and your passion inspires me to follow my dreams!

    I have always loved the start of a New Year! What I look forward to most in 2013 is marrying my best friend. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have met such a selfless and caring man. We are moving to a new town and it helps knowing he is so supportive of my ever-changing endeavors!

    There is my sappy post! Thanks again for all the fun and inspiration you share! :)
