Hudsons Bay- Winter Gala 2017

Another holiday season gears up.... and could you really have Christmas (if you celebrate it) without The Hudsons Bay co.???  The trees, the décor, the overpowering smell of 'youth dew' (its a horrid perfume)...  Love being a part of the gala-making friends, & taking friends!!!  This year my LOVELY assistant was Crystal. Crystal was the largest influence in my life while I was deciding to work on cruise ships.... and without ships, I couldn't do what I do now.... So thanks Crystal, you have ROCKED my LIFE! 

Proud to have been invited to join The Green Vanity to provide makeup touch ups(GLITTER) and lash applications to the guests of the Sugarplum Ball.  Please invite me back.... 
(I have not used that much glitter since the nineties!!!  *LOVE*)

May 6, 2017 -Heros Amazing Race.

It was a day of cheering on the teams that were racing around Vernon, to win some SERIOUS prizes and bragging rights.  Teams had to solve a riddle to figure out the location, THEN do the challenge.  So much fun, and thanks to my LOVELY volunteers for keeping things in the studio so upbeat and running smoothly!


INTRODUCING - Raina, of Lutz Nutrition (our master of Kombucha and everything nutrition)

Collaborating with The Green Vanity-Nuit des Dames fundraiser 2017

Have to say that was one of the most entertaining fundraisers EVER, and I wasn't even participating!! Lol... got to be part of "team GREEN" with Nikki from The Green Vanity, doing clean beauty touch ups for the photo booth... harassed my favorite photographer Alisha and her right hand woman... toping it off I made some new friends from the Karmic Bazar in Kelowna .... #happygirl #thegreenvanity #collaboratewellness — feeling fabulous with Nikki Hunter at Coast Capri Hotel.

"Nuit des Dames is a ladies-only event in support of Central Okanagan Hospice Association and Swinging with the Stars. Enjoy a night of pampering by the Kelowna RCMP. Be greeted with a beautiful rose, escorted to your table, and served an incredible plated dinner.

Spend the rest of the night dancing and being entertained. Special guest DJ, photobooth, silent auction, and 50/50 draw. Guaranteed to be a night of fun, all while supporting a great cause, to provide compassionate care, comfort, support, and learning to those who are in the last stages of life or grieving in the community."
