“Build it and they will come.” One of my favourite movie quotes.
A few months ago Maggie asked me if I had ever considered an early access launch party for our VIP’s when we release a new collection. I’m embarrassed to say the thought never crossed my mind.
While I was in the States doing biz, I left Maggie, Dawn and Natasha with the task of planning the launch party. They had some pretty great ideas that they updated me with via email. I was getting more and more excited about the idea and the next thing you know, invitations were going out to all of our VIP’s and the RSVP’s were rolling in!
The evening was a huge hit! I am still floating around on cloud 9 here and I don’t ever want to come down.
This night was extra special for me. I was able to share my inspirations about my collection with our guests and talk to them about how the pieces made them feel. It was so rewarding to see how people identified with the 8 new colour combinations. They too could relate to the stories I had written about each one of them.
Sharing a glass of bubbly with some of my favourite customers, bopping around to 80’s music, trying on beautiful julz and sending them off with a great gift bag is definitely my idea of a good time.
Growing up, I was the queen of hosting basement parties with all of my high school peeps! In many ways I felt like I was re-living those days. The bliss of having wonderful people around me and knowing they are having a good time because I could make them feel special in some small way.
I am so grateful to everyone who attended and to my amazing team at glamjulz for their enthusiasm and dedication to making sure the evening was a smash hit!
I think it’s also important to mention that my Mom came with 2 trays of her amazing Gravlax, if you want the recipe I might just be able to get it for you!
We are also happy to announce that 10% of our sales from the evening will be donated to Halton Food for Thought, feeding kids in schools throughout our community.
I truly believe there is always a good reason to celebrate. Sometimes life goes by so fast that we forget to stop and be proud and take in those special moments!
I’ve already got a bunch of ideas up my sleeve on how we can continue to enjoy each other’s company and find a great reason to have a good time! Stick with me my friends, my high school basement parties will live on at the glamjulz studio!
I love to read your comments. Please tell us what the highlight of our VIP night was for you! We’re so happy you were there!
