Last week I had the pleasure of being on a panel chatting about ethical fashion. Starting the imperfect conversation. At the end of the day, two of the most important things is 1) educate yourself! Learn why ethical fashion is something so important to care about and 2) ask questions. Please do not be shy about reaching out to brands you love and asking questions about their manufacturing and environmental processes. This keeps brands accountable to their customers, and with enough people asking the same questions, things can start to get better in the fashion industry and for the people behind the scenes making our clothes, it can mean a brighter better future for them and their family! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I also want to say a major thank you to Jocelyn of @thevirtualeffect for organizing this amazing event! You light up a room and bring people together in such a wonderful way. Also mad love and admiration for all the amazing women up there with me @andreabeca.work, @janislgalloway of @publicityroom , Claire of @unbelts and Lorna of @msichana.inc 🖤

I’ve had a fabulous time today making new connections at the Virtual Effect event Elevate: A Pursuit of Fair Fashion.

My biggest take away, as a consumer, is to really question the corporate social responsibility and ethical supply chain management of the companies we chose to support with our buying power. I encourage you to do the same.

Last night was a beautiful gift to all of the women that were at Elevate. We were fully blessed with the presence of @tawshadawn and her sweet daughter Sophia. Tawsha shared her journey, “bumps” and all. The grace and strength this woman carries left me without words. I honestly can’t even try to put last night into words that would do the evening justice. Tears, laughter, real and raw truth, support, smiles, and hugs ❤️. Thank you Tawsha for bringing us an evening of perfect elevation.
I was so warmed by the volume of donations we were able to collect for @winhouseshelter , thank you ladies for your giving and generosity.
Thank you @cafeblackbirdyeg for hosting us! Excellent as always!

Next Elevate is October 16th, stay tuned for registration details!

If you’re like me you’d score a great deal on something and be pretty pumped, that little high of something new, another piece for your wardrobe, quality or not, didn’t really matter much. I never thought about the implications of a sweet deal, you know that $5 t-shirt, never kinda worked backwards to what that meant for the person, most likely a woman overseas, making it. So if the store is making a profit and the clothing manufacturer is making a profit, off of $5, what does that mean the person sewing my shirt made? I can tell you this, it certainly isn’t a living wage and the conditions she or he works in are likely not that appealing and maybe not even safe. If you don’t know what I mean do a quick google search of the April 24, 2013 Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now please know, I’m not saying this to make you feel guilty, I state it only to bring awareness. I honestly believe that when people know better they do better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With that intention, along with the support of some amazing #yegfashion faces, we are bringing you Elevate: A Pursuit of Fair Fashion on September 13th. Grab your tickets today (link in bio). It’s going to be an evening of connection, fun, learning, and creating a conversation that can lead to a movement which leads to change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hope to see you there ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

@duvalcanada posted this quote today and I loved it so much I had to borrow and share it! The impact that kindness has limitless; you honestly don't know how much showing kindness to someone can mean and maybe right when they need it most. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Would you agree?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Be kind and be gentle......to one another and yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Elevate evenings bring me so much joy and fulfillment and last night was no exception. We heard from Lori at @suityourselfyeg which is an Edmonton organization that provides professional attire to women in challenging financial situations. This business wear allows them to walk into job interviews and new roles feeling confident and professional. If you aren’t familiar with them please take a few minutes to check them out.
Our speaker last night was Sabina Eng @mowyee of @theprojectofnow When I met Sabina a few months ago I was so sparked by her energy and spirit and last night she absolutely showed the Elevate women the same beauty. She is a firecracker full of life and personality and showed bravery in sharing her personal story. The pearls of wisdom from past guests that she shared on living in the Now were diverse and so valuable! I count myself so lucky to have women like Sabina take time to share and connect with the Elevate group.
And now for the donations we were able to collect for @winhouseshelter it honestly gave me goosebumps. Please scroll through the photos to see the school supplies this incredibly generous group of women brought last night. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart ❤️ Thank you to @cafeblackbirdyeg for hosting our group!
I’ll be announcing our fall schedule soon so stay tuned! I’m so excited for what’s ahead for this group!
Also make sure to check out Elevate: A Pursuit of Fair Fashion open to everyone on Sept 13th. Tickets are $30 and available through Eventbrite (link in bio). It’s going to be a night filled with experience, learning, and energy, I can’t wait!

How do these weeks keep flying by so quickly?! I hope your week has been wonderful and incredibly productive! I have been trying new technique to help me focus my day and be as productive as possible, and so far it has been a very good change!
This week’s Friday Favourite is an Edmonton organization called @suityourselfyeg . They are a wardrobe for women association; providing new and gently worn business attire at no cost to local disadvantaged women who are looking for work. I am so excited that we have Lori from Suit Yourself speaking at Elevate on Tuesday. I can’t wait to learn more about what they do and how we can help!
Hope you have a beautiful weekend!

Raise your hand if you’ve ever figuratively stepped back in a social setting and noticed you were being some weird BS version of you, but not the real you 🙋🏼‍♀️ I realized over the last couple of years that there were certain people I would be around that would drain me, that left me feeling really crappy, that made me feel less than. When I figured out why I was feeling this way and set my boundaries, I became unapologetically me. When you can be yourself around people, and I mean really you, a weight is lifted and situations don’t feel like work. This will mean certain people will drop away, both in your personal and professional life, and that’s ok, that’s when you’ll have the space for the people who are truly meant to be in your world. .

You know those pinch me moments in life? I recently had one when I was asked to be on @theprojectofnow podcast with @mowyee and @nathans_beard
I am so honoured to have been asked and to have had the opportunity to share my story with this really incredible podcast.
Take a listen and let me know what you think (link in my bio)! Also, check out the other great interviews they’ve had.....another reminder as to why I love Edmonton so much! 📷 @ladyluckstudiosphotography .
