Release your Inner Girl with Tina and the Shopgirls Gallery Boutique #Toronto #BeThatMom

Last Thursday October 10, 2013, Be That Books partnered with the  Shopgirls Gallery Boutique in trendy downtown Toronto to host an incredible Girls Night Out!

The venue was spectacular. Shopgirls is a gorgeous boutique featuring all Canadian designed clothing, including the World’s most comfortable yoga jeans.  (Your butt will thank these yoga jeans!)  A sign on their wall reports on the quantity of “happy bums” that have walked into, and out of, this trendy boutique. Well, the number grew that night!  Shopgirls was generous enough to give away a pair of jeans to one lucky attendee of our event, and the ladies were treated to a 10% discount on their purchases that evening too.

While we sipped on flutes of Prosecco and dined on the luscious dessert bar and cutesy bags of popcorn, Shopgirls gave us the “skinny” on dressing for your shape and not worrying about your size. Our guests were turned into models for a fashion show and had clothes hand selected for their shape by the owner herself, Michelle.

Do you know what shape you are?

Check out the  Shopgirls Shape Guide, and get tips on dressing to suit YOU!

When it comes to clothing, you’ve got to “Accentuate the Positive….and Eliminate the Negative!” Focus on highlighting the parts of your body that you love, and draw attention to that, and no one (including you!) will even notice the things you might not love so much.

I also treated the girls to a mini workshop on how to get noticed and how to start getting noticed a lot more in your life! It’s all about keeping your head up, shoulders back, chest out, tummy, butt in and looking where you want to go. When you’ve got that down, it’s time to strut your way through life…with a smile!  Being “That Girl” and “That Mom” is fun, exciting and rewarding!

We were all surprised to have a true Canadian Celebrity attend this event… the fabulous Sandi Richard! Best-selling author of the Cooking for the Rushed Series , Host of Food Network’s Fixing Dinner, and Mom to 7 kids, it was such a treat to have this downright, awesome and inspiring woman join us for our night of girly fun. Some lucky attendees even went home with one of her Meal Planning Cookbooks…Eating Forward.  Never stress about what’s for dinner again,Ladies!

The best part of any event is giving back, and in true Be That Books style, we raised money to support 2 amazing charities: Because I am a Girl and Blessings in a Backpack. A huge Thank You to all of the attendees for helping us do our part to make the world a better place!

I feel so fortunate to have met each and every woman who attended this event, and I know that my life has been enriched by every hug I got, and gave, that evening.

I am truly thankful for the help of some incredible family and friends (you know who you are!)…Family makes the world go ’round, and keeps the sunshine in our hearts every day.

I am very excited to take my Release your Inner Girl night to Winnipeg, and I am praying this amazing mild fall weather keeps on rolling!
