Winner Announcement ~ Celebrate Girlfriends Contest

Pack your bags to one lucky Girlfriend!

It’s been an amazing month on social media for GoGirlfriend. Our first contest and we’re very grateful to Lansdowne Resort for sponsoring our prize (more below).

Without further ado, the winner is…drum roll please…


Pam Flynn, you WIN!!! By the way, this video was shot with our Nokia 920 as part of our Holiday Swap Challenge with Microsoft Canada.

More than 1,000 people entered this contest and the retweets and shares were fantastic. Our community manager, Meaghan, was up to the challenge though and did a fabulous job of connecting with everyone – thank you Meaghan!

Pam didn’t submit a twitter handle so we’ll be shooting an email your way to notify you. You have seven days to get in touch with us and claim your prize – December 30, 2012. If we don’t hear from you by then, we’ll draw another name – so get on the phone, girlfriend!

Talk about a great way to start the holidays, right?

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
