To be inspired. 

As you all know, we attended CommYOUnityYVR’s screen night event at the Settlement building in Gastown on Saturday, June 10th. The power of personal connection is truly amazing because to give and connect with creative people in this world is divine. We want to start off by thanking Kiana Heighton for bringing everyone together and making this night happen. The whole team did a spectacular job with setting the relaxed, yet fun ambience. For those who haven’t been in the Settlement Building, the decorations and natural lighting coming from the windows turned the place from feeling cold to cozy; it’s what made the place look so unique and beautiful. It had the guests feeling cool because of the airy, open mood. This became so evident as the night went on and the space continued to fill up. People continued to vibe off each other’s energy and the night became that much better. We can vouche for that because the moment we walked into the building we both felt the burst of connection; a warm, tingling sensation. To be in a room that allows relationships to be built by countless supporters and entrepreneurs is truly influential. The evening started off with short delightful conversations with old friends, while leading into business like conversations with others.

Spread love and give these humans a follow.||#thebeautyofnetworking

We love to hear each other’s stories and business goals. After all, listening to what others have to say and seeking support is key to learning something new everyday. We listened to Alanah Morin introduce the group of individuals that took part in putting the night together. Alanah is also a member of Community For A Sustainable World  (@communityforasustainableworld)and the Co-founder and Director of Operations.

As the evening carried on we got to know what each entrepreneur is challenged with, what community means to them, and a little about the industry each entrepreneur works in.

So what was our big take away from this night?

Networking is a big part of getting yourself out there, but you don’t always have to focus on that. To be present at a night like this reminded us how much we appreciate and enjoy genuine conversations. Laughing while working is great for your soul – work doesn’t always need to be serious – #laughalot.

Before our business foundation can even begin to support and empower other businesses we must understand where others are coming from. Therefore we like to start every conversation by: asking questions, finding commonalities, and just listening. We’re not perfect, but over time the more events we attend, the better we’ll get at doing these 3 things. So our second take away from this night is recognizing the power of your words and communication. So we are making it our goal to voice wisely and to not expend it wastefully from now on.

Shoutout to COMMYOUNITYYVR once again for a fun and giving evening.

Vancity Business Babes Anniversary Bash número DOS

So tonight we attended Vancity Business Babes Bash – hosted by Danielle Wiebe at SKYHANGAR in Pitt Meadows. Those who have never been, believe us when we say it is beautiful. It’s in the middle of nowhere and the building is quite big and spacious with high ceilings; it had a helicopter inside the building. It was pretty cool that Danielle decided to host her event there because not only did it have lots of parking, but we loved the idea of it being far from the city.

Anywho, moving to the good stuff tonight – feelings. Let’s quickly discuss how we felt today by starting off with you know when people say they feel inspired and motivated after hearing a speaker, watching a movie, reading an article, or being surrounded by a loved one?…well, that’s what tonight did to us.

The event consisted of several vendors and several entrepreneurs. We were both amazed at the amount of people that arrived from different cities just to attend and hear from those on the panel tonight. We had of course, Danielle speak about starting Vancity Business Babes (VCBB) and her accomplishments within the past 2 years, along with 3 bloggers which had recently started their business. They discussed their strenghts and weaknesses, and shared with us their story on how they got to where they are today. This was nice to hear because it was a reminder that not only do we struggle, but others do too throughout their journey of building a name for their brand or company.

You know, Kleyra and I are huge on surrounding ourselves with positive people and continuously learning from others to grow. That being said, it’s not always easy to do that in the business world. VCBB hosted an event tonight that allowed us to collaborate with businesses and take away awesome tips to keep in mind as we continue to grow as a business. One thing that was mentioned today that we really liked was that VCBB strives on collaboration and not competition. It’s quite an amazing experience to feel and know that the business women who came tonight helped empower and support other local businesses. Walking out those doors triggered us to want to push our limits once again and really just go home and get things done – so we did just that. Kleyra got her laptop and started brainstorming some more and I put my working boots on and got my head in the game. I started scheduling and asking myself, “now what is the next step?”

We both became super excited about moving forward with the new stuff we had in mind and actually started implementing a plan to reach out to businesses more and get them to want to work with us. We’ve got our working boots on and now there is no stopping us. We’re on a mission, just like every other business woman that we saw and met tonight.

Keep an eye for the next VCBB event because you may find us there!!!

Now go make things happen.

Daily Arbonne Intake

I’m sure you’ve seen our posts on Arbonne and so we wanted to share with you all our everyday essentials with some of the products we use.

To begin, we will start off with our daily Arbonne Protein shake. It comes in 2 flavours, vanilla and chocolate. We take this every day to start off our morning with high protein. We also like to make a shake before or after a workout. You can add banana and other fruits with it!

After breakfast, around noon time if not after noon time, we take an Energy Fizz stick. Our days start around 3:30am or 6:30am-7am, and for that reason we take this to give us a bit of kick to continue our day. With that in mind, this isn’t something you have to take daily; we just do it because of our early mornings to start work, school, homework, and house work; as you can see, we have long days. Aside from that, we take our energy fizz because also tastes yummy. It comes in two flavours and my personal favourite is pomegranate! Most of us don’t like taking things that leave us with a bad taste in out mouth, and trust us when we say this wont!


Moving forward, we use our awesome tasteless Fibre Boost! We use this when prepping dinner.

Have you ever loved anything tasteless? If not, try this. This allows you to add and mix it with anything while providing you with 12 grams of fibre. You can read more below.

Lastly, we drink Arbonnes Herbals tea. We drink one cup at least once a day. We give this to our mom as well – she loves it! It makes us feel cleansed, relax and good. Usually at night is always nice to have, as well as mid day. You can take it whenever, really.


….AND that’s a wrap!

Below is a picture on how you can use everything together – excluding the herbal tea, but including the Greens Balance. We do take the Green Balance, but not on a daily basis – not because we don’t like it. It is just as important to have your greens daily, but we simply do it by assuring we eat our greens. So we take it when we don’t eat enough throughout our day.


For more questions or information, you can go to our GoArbonne page or email us!


From us to you,
