☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ Treat your guests to a fun holiday party drink while giving them a dose of Marine Collagen! For this receipe I used the coconut flavored Marine Collagen however they also have unflavored that could work!
•Light corn syrup or honey for rimming glasses •Flaked coconut for rimming glasses •8 cups ice (more or less depending on desired consistency) •1 cup pineapple juice •1/2 cup blue curacao •1/2 cup vodka or light rum (I used vodka) •1/2 cup cream of coconut • 8 tablespoons of @bend_skincare marine collagen
Rim the glasses: Pour a thin layer of corn syrup onto a plate and dip the rims into the corn syrup, then dip in coconut flakes.
In a blender, blend ice, pineapple juice, blue curacao, vodka, @bend_skincare Marine Collagen and cream of coconut until desired consistency is reached. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
Super fun and easy...remember my code above is valid from Dec.10th to 17th 2018.... visit Bend_skincare today
Friday was a sad day.... saying goodbye to the husband of a sweet friend, taken away suddenly and unexpected... so after getting home I decided to drag out the Christmas decorations early to cheer myself up (because each year I forget how much I detest the 3 days of mess) ...then getting out Saturday night with my girlfriends to celebrate a birthday, and ending today with finishing the Inside decor that made my family's eyes light up has reminded me, that being around those that truly care about you, and doing things you love is truly the best medicine a girl could ever want... #merrychristmas#iknowitsnotdecemberyet
Why I feel blessed to be in the industry I'm in? Because along this path I have met so many amazing people, so many talented designers, so many artistic souls, too many to count or name...some are only temporarily in my life but in that tiny moment their energy, or our conversation kept me so in the moment that I felt more alive then the day before....some have stuck around and I've been able to see them grow as designers and business people....some I can even call friends... this awesome creature pictured with me backstage at @atlanticfashionweek came into my life thanks to the intro by @nl_german and although it was a brief and crazy few days her energy left me feeling so amazing and rejuvenated and to remind myself to do more of the things that make me that happy! So happy to have met you @meljacdesigns cant wait to see where you go!!
This post is being made a little later then I usually do however finding the words to show my appreciation is always a process to do!
To the amazing team behind @atlanticfashionweek
I would like you all to know that nothing you do ever goes un-noticed and that I am appreciative of your support and dedication
The road traveled since I founded the very first Atlantic Fashion Week 10 years ago has been a long road. I have not only learned so much about myself, through determination and blind love of what I do, but have come to value the ability to trust others to own and be accountable for the roles they have taken on, and after 12 seasons, I have watched you all enjoy making them your own.. This is something very hard for someone like myself who tends to like to control the situation around me… but each of you in your own way makes me a better person... So along with my crazy love for all of Seasons 12 AMAZING designers who brought their A game every showcase, and to all the beautiful runway models and our dedicated event volunteers I want to also give thanks !! To our sponsors that supported the event and to the production crew, entertainment , DJs , Bar service....every role was important to our amazing end product... an incredible event for everyone to be proud of.... To the most amazing team in the world, the AFW Team, you all are what's considered a true family. Thanks for all the hard work and dedication. ~ Angela ☆ JODY EULOTH - Strategic Partners ☆ HEIDI FLEMING - Head of Make Up ☆ TINA BURKE - Head of Hair Design ☆ BRENT McCOMBS - Photographer ☆ MIKE SWEICH - Photographer ☆ KAREN DOHERTY - Redken 📸 Brent McCombs

What a wonderful evening tonight at the opening party for @judithandcharles ...thank you for the invite and the chance to meet this inspirational man @charleslepierres ... a wonderful chat learning about his Foundation and what inspires him in life #wearcanadaproud#canadiandesigner#judithandcharles
It's hard to wrap my head around it all sometimes.... it's been 20 years today that I watched you blow out your last candles... sometimes I struggle to remember your voice and other times I hear you yelling in my head when I should be listening to my instincts...like a wise conscience guiding me along as plain as if you were standing in front of me.... to the first man I ever loved, happy birthday in heaven 💖
So that's a wrap on @atlanticfashionweek season 12's Model Call... 148 model hopefuls came out over a 7 hour period and auditioned for our designers...that works out to one model every 2.7 mins for 7 hours straight!! .... this Year Marks 10 Years and 12 Seasons.....and the production of shows #41 ,42 & 43 and every year I am left so inspired by our Atlantic Canadian Talent! Thank you for the constant Inspiration and fuel to continue what I do!
Today I wake up the mother of a 20 year old 🤪 ... I dont know where the time went but I can tell you, I couldnt be more proud of the beautiful, loyal and loving young woman @max_drew has grown into... you are the light of my life and I am so very lucky to have you in my life. Happy Birthday Baby Girl 💖 #happybirthday#firstborn#20thbirthday
Today was one of those days that I didnt seem to have enough hours to get it all done.... but as I lay here in my daughters bed after "3 more books please" and hear my baby sleeping deeply, I instantly do not want to rush anymore....it can wait....
Every day we make the choice... stay in whatever situation that doesn't work for you...or take the steps to write a better ending... I chose to live a life that I make constant edits... some might not be popular... but they were right for me... no body can control your outcome except for you... #takecontrol#instaquote
