Welcome to the weekend, lovelies! We’re so glad you’re here because we’ve got two new and totally fabulous advertisers here at SMP to introduce you to. If you’ve been around here at all this week then we know you’ve seen all the fabulousness that are the Cook Islands! A perfect place to escape to, especially this time of year! We’ve also got Empress Paper Crafts, purveyors of custom wedding stationery at an affordable price. Let’s take a few minutes to get to know them.

Okay, let’s just get one thing straight: The Cook Islands look exactly like paradise. Seriously, close your eyes and picture a cluster of 15 tiny islands nestled in between Fiji and Tahiti at the heart of the Polynesian Circle. Islands more secluded than Fiji and more off the beaten path than Tahiti. If you’re looking for a vacation out of the ordinary, this is it. Inside the same time zone as Hawaii, lies this magical place known for its white, sandy beaches and crystal clear water. You’ll relax immediately among the friendly people and laid back vibe.

If lounging around isn’t exactly your thing, don’t worry because there’s plenty to do! You can enjoy anything from kite-surfing to safari tours, snorkeling to lagoon cruising. You name, they have it in the Cook Islands. Click here for more info! You’ll be sure to fall in love with this unique place after just one visit.

You know what they say about necessity being the mother of invention? Well that’s exactly how Empress Paper Crafts began. Founder Charlene Li was planning her own wedding and was unhappy with the stationery selections she came across. She noticed a huge price gap between the cookie cutter invites and custom. And lucky for all of us, Empress Paper Crafts was born. Now you can have gorgeous, high quality custom invitations and stationery at an affordable price. These beauties will create the perfect first impression and since they collaborate on the design with all their customers, your vision will totally be represented.

It’s no wonder that all their clients say that creating the invitations was one of the most fun things they did in their wedding planning process! And now Empress Paper Crafts is offering 15% off all orders of custom wedding invitations for new SMP Facebook fans as of Jan 31, 2013. You’ll even get 5% off just for entering and mentioning SMP! One lucky winner could win $499 off their invitations!

So there you have it. Two fabulous new members of the SMP family! Welcome aboard Cook Islands and Empress Paper Crafts. We’re so happy to have you both! xoxo
