I had such an AWESOME day yesterday.
Last week I got an email from the Downtown Halifax Business Commission asking me to be a part of their Wish List Campaign. It's a campaign they do during the holidays to encourage consumers to buy local.
Consumers get to choose something from a local store downtown and add that to their "wish list" and they stand a chance to win money towards buying that item.
So I went for my photoshoot yesterday shot at J & R Grimsmo (AMAZING store!) with photographer
Chris Geworsky. The concept was me sitting on Santa's lap and digging into my inner overly excited 4 yr old kid. (uhhmm that kid wasn't far away AT ALL)
Check out this behind the scenes video of the photoshoot that I had my friend Shariena take.
and a few pics
A couple of days ago I got an invite from Emma with The Black Business Initiative to a networking lunch event. I had to dash to this event after my photoshoot.
What I thought to be a laid back networking event during lunch was actually lunch with 100+ business professionals from major organizations in Halifax who gathered to network and hear keynote speaker Sean Wise whose business mind is IMPECCABLE.
It was amazing to hear him speak and a big thank you to Emma from the BBI for inviting me to be a part of the event.
sidenote: the lunch was yummy, you know I had to pull out my blogger card and snap some pics of the food..LOL.
