Hello!

How goes it today!!

Last night I had the privilege of attending the book release for Crave Vancouver’s 3rd Edition. They call it “The Urban Girl’s Manifesto“. Most major cities in North America have their own version of Crave.

I’ve been flipping through the book this morning and wow, what a great book- for women, by women. It’s full of resourceful information of ¬†Vancouver’s best female businesses. Everything from Spa’s, fitness, financial planning, dog stores, fashion, baby clothes, photography, restaurants and so much more.

I really want to go to Bandidas Taqueria on Commercial Drive- mexican and vegitarian-YUM!

I also met Jennifer and Rachel, the design consultants behind A Good Chick To Know. They are not only super sweet and friendly, they are also very talented and inspiring. They are both moms (they each have a daughter- almost born on the same day!)

Andrea of Go-Lucky Photography took many of the pictures in the book.

Another one of my favourites is SKN Holistic Rejuvenation Clinic in Yaletown 

(I heard a rumour that SKN is going to be featured in Flare Magazine! Sawweeet)

Although, I personally didn’t make it in the book, my makeup skillz did! I did the makeup for Ravy and Amy from The Bombay Brow Bar. Get the best brows in Vancouver at BBB

The event was held at Canvas in Gastown

2 of my gals, who made a really good point that people in Vancity wear to much black- I am guilty of this- Love their color
Crowd Shot
My ONLY complaint of the evening was the bartender. Yikes, sorry sir, but I tended bar for years and this is NOT how you serve a $10 glass of wine
2 ounces (equalling $5 a sip), wet glass with disgusting lipstick on it! Then, when I asked for a new glass, he just poured it into another glass. Can I say- ANNOYING?? Girls, has that ever happened to you?

HOWEVER……the CRAVE COOKIES made up for it:)

Congrats to all the women in Crave! And Best of Luck in your continued success!

My quote today is this: All the so-called “secrets of success” will not work unless you do. ~Author Unknown
(all these women obviously know that!)

Have a great day everyone!
