We’re leaving the mainland and heading for the islands for this week’s freebie giveaway. Well, I guess I don’t mean that literally (unfortunately) but we’re leaving it up to So’mace Lifestyle, a new design boutique in Honolulu, to bring the Hawaiian experience to all of us.
So’mace Lifestyle is a new gallery & shop spawned from a design service that started in 2004 by former New Yorkers Kaypee Soh and Edward Macey. The new boutique, which has a focus on sustainable and green design, is chock full of great art for your walls (wallpaper), for your floor (rugs), for your dreams (bedding) and- here’s where the prize comes in – for your sofa (pillows).
Kaypee Soh’s line of original pillows (view full collection here and here) is a mix of nature-inspired florals and graphic retro designs, all hand-printed in Washington state and hand-sewn in Hawaii. They feature 100% linen covers with a 20″ x 20″ feather/down and hypoallergenic insert. Plus, with two different, coordinated designs on each side, you can give your couch a fresh look just by flipping the pillow over. And one lucky reader will have the chance to do just that…
To win your choice of any one of the six pillows shown below, just comment on this post with the words “ALOHA” by Wednesday, February 18th at 8pm EST. And since Hawaii is such a popular honeymoon spot, we’d also love to hear where you went (or are hoping/planning to go) on your honeymoon. As you probably know, we actually left the lower 48 and headed the other direction for an Alaskan honeymoon. Not quite as warm, but it managed to be just as romantic.
So’mace Lifestyle will ship this great prize anywhere, so don’t hold back all you international pillow lovers! We’ll be picking one winner using random.org and announcing it later in the week as usual. Now, what’s Hawaiian for “good luck”?

I’d love to go to the Greek Isles — for the culture AND fun and the sun. :)
We took a cruise to the Caribbean for our honeymoon, and I can’t wait until we do it again next year for our 5-year anniversary!
ALOHA! Beautiful pillows.
We went to San Francisco, Napa, and Sonoma on our honeymoon. We hit up the city, went to Fisherman’s Wharf, and toured Alcatraz, then rented a car, drove along the coast on Highway 1 and ended up in wine country where we stayed at cozy cottages, had fantastic dinners, and drank amazing wine.
We went to the Florida keys for our honeymoon (which was lovely) but we’re taking a second honeymoon with some good friends in April to Aruba. Whoo!
We ate & drank our way through San Fran & Napa!!
Well, at the moment I’m single, but have two ideal honeymoons:
1)Somewhere on the Mediterranean
OR more realistically
We went to Cancun – the all-inclusive route! It was wonderful!
What a great post… it helped me escape from the cold and snow here!
Aloha! Italy for me once I find my groom :)
We spent our honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, it was fabulous!

For our honeymoon, we went to Paradise Island, Bahamas. Almost 23 years ago!

My hub and I went to St. Lucia – it was an amazing honeymoon spot!!!

We went to the Dominican Republic. It was amazing!

A bed and breakfast in Charleston, South Carolina :) And we just had our 9th anniversary on February 5th!
We didn’t have much money when we got married, so we drove from Richmond to Charleston, SC for a few days and then went to Savannah, GA. We had a fabulous time.
My husband and I drove to Savannah for our honeymoon! We loved it :)
We went to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It was fun, although not the tropical paradise we were expecting. We’re hoping for a 5th anniversary trip to Hawaii in a couple of years though!

ALOHA! We cruised around Hawaii and then spent a few days resting at the W — perfect vacation!
We went to Cuba on our honeymoon – actually it was a destination wedding so it was a combo wedding/honeymoon. We’ll be jazzy and call it a weddingmoon! All of our nearest and dearest were with us and it exceeded our expectations – and those of our guests!
Aloha! We went to Hawaii (Maui) on our honeymoon and stayed at the Ritz. It was awesome!!
ALOHA! Perhaps the Seychelles?
Love them all. Hawaii is one of my favorite places in the world.
I would love to honeymoon in St. Barths! I’ve heard its wonderful.
We actually went to Maui and had an amazing time. Would love to go back some time.
Aloha! We went to Nova Scotia on our honeymoon…in November, so it was considerably cooler than Hawaii, but I daresay just as romantic!
We rented our own villa on Turks and Caicos for our honeymoon. It was wonderfully relaxing – just what we needed after a hectic wedding weekend!
LOVE the toss pillows! We went to the Big Island of Hawaii for our honeymoon almost 10 years ago. We were hoping to go back for our 10 year anniversary but then the economy happened. Darned recession! Great pillows!
Aloha! Those are amazing!
We went to Riviera Maya, Mexico and stayed at the Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar. It was amazing and I couldn’t have imagined it any other way!
I would love to go to Fiji, and stay in one of those “cabninas on stilts in the sea” places. Looks soooo exotic!
We went to Puerto Vallarta, fabulous & sunny!! I wish we could be there right now!!
My husband and I were married on Oahu (we live in Houston) so it has a special place in our hearts.
