Audrey is amazing!

Audrey

This is my friend Audrey.  Not only is she a beautiful person inside and out but she is an amazing Mother.  Audrey is one of those friends that I wish I could see more often.  Because of our hectic schedules, usually mine, we sometimes go for months without catching up.  Audrey recently had her second child.  A beautiful little girl.  Every time I see Audrey she inspires me.  Her skin is beautiful, her hair looks great and her body bounces back to it’s original shape immediately after having children.  I would say most of us would have a little twinge of jealousy looking at Audrey but I have learned to have nothing but admiration for my dear friend.

Audrey is, in my eyes, 100% committed to her physical and mental health.  Everything she eats is pure and comes from the earth, she is never tempted to eat anything loaded with preservatives or sugars.  She exercises because it makes her feel good.  She has such a friendly disposition and always seems centered.  This is not because it comes easily to her it is because she has made the commitment to herself.  Audrey is a woman that values herself and exudes confidence.

I had the pleasure of spending time with Audrey and her two children this week.  My visit was so enjoyable, the kids woke up at 9am, Audrey made us all a beautiful healthy breakfast, Audrey changed her daughter using cloth diapers and her 3 year old son was already looking forward to helping his mom work on the garden that day.  I felt like I was living in this amazing world that Audrey had created, calm, peace and happiness.

Whenever I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed I often think of my friend Audrey and how committed she has always been to creating a world that is right for her.  Keep believing in your self Audrey!  It inspires me to believe in myself everyday!

What would I do without Dawn?

I know I am the luckiest because I have Dawn!  Everyone needs a right hand man/woman in the office and I think we all strive to find that perfect match!  Fortunately for me I have known Dawn my whole life….since we were babies!  We are not related but grew up like cousins, our parents being good friends!

Dawn and I have such a special connection, it’s hard to describe but I feel like we read each other’s minds all the time.  When our next glamjulz collection is being launched Dawn and I will talk about where the inspiration for the next collection is coming from.  I will start getting all excited about things like, 80’s rollerskating movies, Xanadu, Roxy Music, neon lights….etc etc…whatever has inspired me through the years that I want to translate in beautiful julz.  Dawn just looks at me and says…leave it with me!  Bingo…the magic starts happening. Everytime!  Ahhh Dawn you got me again!  She always does.  Next time you are wearing a beautiful piece of glamjulz and wondering how did they come up with that colour combination?  Who thought to put those beads together?  You can think of Dawn!  Dawn takes what is in my head and makes it better!  That’s why she is irreplaceable to me and to glamjulz!  She’s also a total babe!  Don’t you think?

My first blog

How exciting!  My first blog!  I know many of you are pros with facebook and all the other social networking sites that are out there but I have to admit right now my wonderful husband is responsible for all of our glamjulz posts, I am not a pro in this yet!

I thought it would be appropriate to start my first blog by telling you all how wonderful my husband Wayne is!  I honestly don’t know what I would do without his support.  I am lucky enough to not only work with him in the business but I also get constant praise and reassurance about what a great job he thinks I am doing and how much he appreciates me.

I want to celebrate all of the wonderful partners, friends and relatives out their that help all of us to thrive and succeed!  What would we do without people who believe in us!  The sky is the limit!
