Thanks to all The Big Shwop Blog readers who entered the ecostore giveaway that we had last week. We used our favourite random comment generator. Sarah won a fantastic stash of body care products to keep her skin all lovely and pretty all summer. Nice work Sarah!
PS. I don’t just wink at perfect strangers generally. But my first name is Sarah too and I am compelled. Hope you dont be minding!
Congratulation to Hannah Webb! She has won the Pacific Goddess scent from their Original Range. It sounds amazing too – get a load of this,
“Inspired by the mysticism of the female deities in the Pacific, PACIFIC GODDESS is strong, creative and nurturing, Dramatic Alahehe, Goddess of Love, Hina, Goddess of the Moon, Patroness of Travellers, and Papatuanuku, the Earth Mother of all. Born of volcanic mythical legends, this wonderful blend is our most popular solid perfume fragrance.Test the waters! Its both soft and intensely rich, full of spicy yet delicate vanilla extracts.”
So without further ado, to decide the winner, I shall introduce the Random Number Generator again:
Congratulations Liz Ung! You were comment number 12 so its your lucky day. Yay! We will email you with the details.
You feeling like winning too huh? Make sure you enter the Pacific Perfumes draw - it ends today.
The Big Shwop is obviously full of incredible clothes. FULL. Its a beautiful thing. But its also so, so much more than ‘just’ the clothes. What makes shwopping so much fun is its an afternoon complete with MOMO wine to savour, music and sustainability talks, Trilogy skincare, Peoples Coffee, Kowtow clothing, Photo Booth Fun and ecostore.
Now ecostore have been alongside us, supporting the shwop concept, right from the beginning back in 2008. And they are back with us again, thanking each of our shwopkeeper volunteers with a Healthy Home Starter Kit and gifting every shwopper on the day with some ecostore laundry powder and lovely soap. So fresh, so clean.
It contains everything you need for beautifully healthy skin:
- Orange & Patchouli Body Wash
- Orange & Patchouli Hand Wash
- Light Moisturising Body Lotion
- Light Moisturising Hand Cream
- Body Butter
Brilliant. Just leave a comment below stating that you would like to enter, and make sure you like our facebook page. Easy! Entries close Thursday 15 December.
Kowtow Clothing is amaaaaaazing. Fair-trade organic fashion with a difference – kowtow’s collection is understated, clean and unashamedly contemporary in its approach.
But don’t be fooled into thinking that this is a label that just rocks out classic staples. Hell no. A kowtow piece might seem deceptively simple, but its often multi-functional, and certainly distinctive. Take for example their rail piece.
One minute a skirt, wrapped around and tied, nek minnit its a top – with the ties turning into sleeves. Oh-so-clever. I have a rail piece in black, and I wear it equally in both iterations and loooove it.
Its imaginative and that’s what makes their stuff so gosh-darn awesome. That and the fact that its incredibly soft organic cotton and everyone in its production has been paid fairly. Yeah – thats fashion that feels good on the outside and the inside.
Be at The Big Shwop this Sunday 11 December and keep your eyes peeled for Shwop Surprises – brand-new Kowtow clothing pieces peppered throughout The Big Shwop. What a score. Haven’t bought you and your friends some tickets yet? Heck, go do that now!
Gosia has also kindly offered Big Shwop blog readers the chance to win one kowtow rail piece, valued at $145. All you need to do is write a comment below to say you would like to enter and like our facebook page. Easy. Winner will be drawn on Tuesday 13 December.
I have been wanting a new fragrance for quite a while now. I have had a few signature scents here and there and I felt like it was time for a new one. But when it came to it, I just did not want to buy one over the perfume counter. I dont know, maybe its having a baby close to me now or maybe its a stronger awareness of what I am putting on my skin, but the fragrances I have devoured in the past all of a sudden seemed so fake, so manufactured. And I wasn’t feeling so barefoot and earthy, as to just throw on a couple of drops of an essential oil and be done with it, so I felt a bit stuck.
And then, in Iko Iko, my eyes feel upon some glorious wooden tubs of scent. Pacific Perfumes are made right here in Wellington, not tested on animals, are in beautiful sustainable wooden packaging and are delicious, delicious fragrant blends. I chose Rainforest. It was fresh, clean and divine. Exactly what I was after. Scentsational!
Anyhoo, the lovely ladies at Pacific Perfumes, have offered one as a giveaway to a lucky Big Shwop Blog reader. Just leave a comment below stating which perfume from the Original Range you would choose if you won. Entries close Monday 12 December.
Pacific Perfumes are also releasing 80 limited edition perfumes in time for Christmas. There are three blends inspired by the Victorian era and the kooky charm of the circus. They come in a cute 7g tin, and are 100% botanical using tuberose, amber, violet leaf, tobacco, fir, labdanum and vanilla. Keep your eyes on toggle where they will be released later on this week.
The randomly chosen winner will be announced on the blog on Tuesday 13 December. The competition is for the Original Range scents only.
P.S Apologies for using the term ‘scentsational.’ I appear to be developing my Dad’s propensity for terrible, terrible wordplay at an alarming rate.
Green Juice Inc. is a fabulous new Wellington company making super fresh green juice to cleanse, revitalise and invigorate. And when I say fresh – I mean FRESH. This stuff is made to order, daily and delivered to a place near you for maximum detox punch.
The juice is made from roughly 40% leafy green vegetables and 60% fresh seasonal fruit. Consider it an oil change for your body’s engine - it will make you feel all tickety boo and vroomy in no time. Yes, vroomy is a word, people!
The Big Shwop Blog has a weeks supply of Green Juice Inc. to giveaway to one lucky reader! You can choose the week you would like to start, and whether you would like to pick it up from their CBD, Mt Victoria or Island Bay depots.
To enter, just leave a comment below saying you would like to enter and also like their facebook page. Entries close Friday 9 December.
Thanks so much to all those who entered the competition to win a double pass to The Big Shwop on Sunday 11 December. Man, there are going to be some great threads and footwear up for grabs!
To make sure it was fair, I used a handy computer application to generate a random number. You can call me a geek, I don’t mind.
So Comment #5 was the lucky winner – congratulations Tracy – you have won two tickets to The Big Shwop on Sunday 11 December. Tracy wrote that she is bringing some unworn wedges to shwop that are a size too small. They sound fabulous. We look forward to seeing you, and your shoes, next weekend!
If you haven’t got your ticket yet for NZ’s largest eco-fashion event, pop over to our website now and buy some!
Simply leave a comment below telling us about one item you are planning to shwop and why. Did you buy it for a special occasion and have only worn it once? Is it the wrong size and you’ve been awaiting the day it’ll fit? Was it an impulse buy that was never quite right? Have you enjoyed it and are now happy to see it on someone else? It might be something fabulously vintage or perhaps designer, and of course it will be in tiptop condition. Tell us all about it.
Comments close on Wednesday 30 November. We will choose a random comment as the winner. So get commenting people and be in to win!
