A Night with the Ladies of Lunapads

Hang out with the ladies from Lunapads tonight! They are a great example of a sustainable company – they’re a Certified B Corp as well as a part of LOCO and Climate Smart. I’ve wanted to meet these ladies for a while now, perhaps tonight I’ll make that happen!

“Get Polished” at Metrotown!

The lovely event assistants

On Saturday, June 22nd Metropolis at Metrotown kicked off “Get Polished,” the mall’s summer nail polish workshop series. This was the first of three workshops, called “Find What You Love,” took place over Saturday and Sunday. Shoppers got a chance to sit down, relax, and get their nails did!

There were many adorable mother-daughter participants who watched the step-by-step video while carefully applying their own polish. The end result was a beautiful chevron pattern! Many were already happy with their first coat of purple polish. Just take a look at cute little Sophie showing off her painted thumb with the help of her mom, Justine.

Because there were so many layers to the chevron pattern, a super fast drying top coat called Seche Vite was used. And let me tell you now, this product is amazing! It seriously only takes less than a minute for your nails to completely dry; they look extra shiny too. And want to know how the chevron pattern is done? Quite simply, once the base layer is pained on, stick two reinforcements (yes, your good ol’ school supplies) to form a heart shape and polish on your second layer. I can’t speak for every stylish woman reading this post, but I for sure learned something new.

Did you miss the first workshop? The second and third series take place during the following dates and three workshops run daily from 11am, 1:30pm, and 4pm. All workshops are by donation to Beauty Night-Burnaby. Register at Customer Service for  workshops – you get swag bags, nail trivia, prizes and more!

  • July 6 & 7: “Geometric Chic”
  • July 13 & 14: “Pretty in Polka Dots”

PS. Upload a picture of your nail art to Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win a $100 gift card! Make sure to mention @metropolisatmet and the hashtag #metropolish to qualify.

Style SEEN: Moule Yaletown Grand Opening

Treana Peake signing Sue's Obakki piece!

When Moule held their Grand Opening party, the highlight was definitely seeing style darling Sue Ennis excitedly get her unique Obakki editorial piece signed by designer Treana Peake. In fact, she tracked it down after seeing it in the Obakki catalogue, and miraculously found one of three ever made!

In attendance were Michael Gorenstein and his adorable young son, Sabine Costello, Moule District Manager and Julia Cathcart, designer for Rachel Mara. Also to be seen were store manager Mara Maldonado and blue-haired associate, Hiiro Prince. And of course, the lovely Sue Ennis.

We were all delighted by the vintage popcorn and hot dog machines, confectionary table, and great atmosphere.
