Gastropost Vancouver: Get Saucy, March 2014

I've always photographed my food when we go out to eat, and I usually post them in food related sites just for the fun of it actual taste. 

During one of my regular post of food pictures in Instagram, Gastropost commented on an entry and I decided to go and give it a try. 

Register and you get a food mission, sort of like a theme of picture they need for the paper and when you get chosen, you get a chance to be featured on newspaper, THE PROVINCE.

I did, and without really expecting to, I went with the motion of posting 2 pictures with the theme #getsaucy, which was food that has sauces on the spotlight. One picture did get in and I am so surprised that it actually made it into the papers. A small spot, but it is THERE!

La Roche Posay: Itch Free Day Drawing Contest 2014

I came across La Roche Posay as I was browsing through our local Shopper's drug mart and I like how the products are Paraben-free and Fragrance-free. I have been using several products before that and was on the lookout for something that would give me a better handling of my kid's eczema. I saw the cute packaging and and then I saw the contest.

My daughter, Kimi, decided to give it a go and drew a picture of our family with her idea of how an itch free day looks like to her... I decided to scan it and give it a go and decided to use Facebook to ask friends from all over the world to vote for her drawing. Some of our friends were kind enough to share the link on their page.

We did not end up with the most vote but I was sure that we got into the upper 10 most voted pictures. It will be up to the judge this time to see which drawing deserves the place on their limited edition bottles for winter and the $325 worth of prizes.

March 17th came and went, we were curious as to why no winners has been announced yet. My husband was quite excited and kept on checking the site if there was any winners already.

March 18th, my husband texted me that Kimi won the first price with a big smile at the end of his text. I thought he was joking as there was a lot of nice drawings as well but there it was, our little girl did win.

Congratulations to the 2nd to 5th winner. You all did such a great job!!!

Steph's Pole Dancing Stagette

Before you start thinking, Pole Dancing?!

This is a perfectly wholesome stagette with Pole Dancing instructor to teach us the basic of pole dancing as a form of exercise and keeping fit. Yes, it does involve a bit of sexy moves as much as the next dance and it was really lots of fun... although my body was aching all over the next day and a lot of bruises to show for. I guess I not so graceful on the pole or maybe just needs a bit more practice he he!

Kate's Über Chic Bridal Shower

This year, 3 of our friends here in Canada are on their way to become somebody's better half. 

...and with these are numerous bridal showers to celebrate that upcoming event in their lives.

First off, is a Breakfast buffet with a Tiffany Inspired Theme for the ultra chic soon to be bride, Kate.

Prepared lovingly by her sister, Shar. The decor was well thought off and coordinated right to the last detail. Kate's mom did a wonderful job keeping all the friends full with her cooking. If this is the way she prepared breakfast, it is not hard to believe why her kids stayed so long in her nest. I'd love to wake up everyday with these kind of home cook meals...

and small souvenirs for guest to take home; labels by yours truly
