I love this picture, not because it is of me… I’m not that vain! It is because my friend Tara, from Tara’s View of the World, captured what I do almost 24/7 365. Talk! 🙂

I hope this quick post ties you over until I can get everything together to share with you what Blissdom Canada 2010 was actually all about. I did more things over the last week than I’ve done all year and did it on barely any food or sleep! 🙂 Thanks to the wonderful organizers and sponsors of this amazing event!
With organizers like: Catherine Connors, Alli Worthington, Barbara Jones and Paula Bruno how can you go wrong?! Thank you ladies!
A special thank you to one of the official sponsors of Blissdom Canada. GM Canada provided us with transportation and drivers between the different venues and parties. My taxi cab fund thanks you! The President of General Motors Canada, Kevin W Williams, even made us feel welcome during the first official session on Thursday. He was so down-to-earth in his jeans and casual “speech” and ensured us that the new GM is nothing like the old one. He made me want to trust him. I am looking forward to their recovery from the most recent economic struggles.

In the above picture, we’re on our way in a 2011 Chevy Cruze, to the Arta Gallery for the Kick-Off Party. Check out my new Purple & Black reversible poncho/wrap! Thank you to Northern Reflections for supplying my wardrobe for Blissdom Canada 2010. Another company trying to rebrand itself! 

It’s a time of new beginnings!
Tara is wearing a black long sleeve t-shirt, blue scarf and beautiful Dragon Fly necklace, all from Northern Reflections! You look amazing darling!!
On the first day of Blissdom, I wore this white, Stripe Ruffle Shirt, Glen Check Vest, Jeggings & beautiful silver and crystal rose choker necklace. I wore the Jeggings the entire conference, they were SOOO comfortable and stylish! The 2nd photo is of me with Scott Stratten from Un-Marketing.com – I was totally crushing on his AWESOME Social Media skills!
Day two – I wore those Jeggings again with the same white shirt but this time with a great black “Net Vest Shawl” and a great silver and rhinestone chain knot necklace. Even the black feather pin on my briefcase is from Northern Reflections?! It’s not all fleece and ducks anymore!! 🙂
Don’t Tara and I look great together!! 
I’m so happy we finally got to meet in real life! Yes, Blissdom Canada brought us together for the very first time in 3+ years of an online-only friendship! I wrote about it with a video of our actual first meet-up at the airport! Today I am totally suffering from major Tara withdrawal. We had to Skype and just pretend we were sitting directly across the table from each other. It sucks to be 21 hours away (by car) from each other but I am so, so, so glad that we had the few days together that we did!

  2. I never would have thought I'd like anything from Northern Reflections and scrolled through the pics, believing I'd hate them all. And then I couldn't find a single one I didn't LOVE! Wow.
