Behind the Scenes

If you follow our bfrend Facebook page, you might be wondering who Kiran, Kate and Brenden are! And what does a business school have to do with bfrend? These three amazingly hard working fourth year BBA Entrepreneurial Leadership students approached me to help them Ace their final business project at Kwantlen University! I of course wanted to help!

They have taken over a piece of  bfrend and have made it into their own business project! They are in the middle of selling bfrend bracelets for a 6 week period  for a very exclusive price, till March 16th. All profits generated from this business launch will be donated back to the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Venture Fund, which supports young entrepreneurs starting new businesses! And of course, at the end of it all they are marked on their performance, marketing strategy and sales profit.

I am 100%  in awe of their business ethic and their elaborate plan of action! I would love for all my readers to support them and help them Ace their final project! (Even liking their bfrend Facebook page will help!)

Colors available: Black, White, Hot Pink, and Turquoise

$40 for one bracelet, $35 each for 2+
S+H: $7.50 for 1 bracelet, $12.50 for 2+

work and play.

Happy Friday lovelies!

Wow it’s already been a week! I hope you’ve had a good one! Lots of sweets, treats and love on the 14th I hope! :) We had a fantastic trip away in Las Vegas. Everything from work to play! I was honoured to attend the MAGIC and PROJECT trade shows in Vegas. As overwhelming as it looked, it was fun to talk to all the reps and get a sneak peek of what fashion has in store for the next couple of seasons! Not to mention, how hard it was not to buy right then and there! Patience!

We had fun in the sun, ate yummy food, partied and shopped a little, okay a lot.

Here’s a little instagram photo montage:

Kate Spade Spring 2012

Happy Hump Day everyone! How is Wednesday treating you so far?? I hope you’re in the mood for something bright and fun!

When I first saw the Kate Spade Spring 2012 campaign- I was in love! I love everything about it, including the florence broadurst’s black and white japanese floral! Not to mention all the pretty pinks and peaches! A colour palate falling right under my name! I couldn’t resist and decided to share some of my favourites from the Florence Broadhurst collection. Hold on to your wallets ladies!!

Also, how exciting is this! A Kate Spade Pop-up shop!!  Inspired by the spirit of  favorite musical icons (think blondie and the supremes) Kate Spade NY  has put a rock and roll twist on their spring 2012 campaign. To celebrate, they’re setting off on a cross-country road trip this season in their very own tour bus-a pop-up shop! Outfitted in their favorite new print of the season, florence broadurst’s japanese floral.  Swing by for tour gear, prizes and other limited-edition exclusives, and to catch live concerts by the vivian girls at each stop.

I might just need to drive down to Seattle for this!
