If you happen to be driving down Robie Street (towards the MacKay Bridge), and take a look to the left, or coming toward Bedford on the Bedford Highway, or you’re driving down Coburg Road towards Spring Garden, or in Bayers Lake passing Cost-Co you might just recognize a familiar face.
Recently I had the opportunity to not only be featured in MicMac Mall’s holiday campaign, but I also got to choose the talent, AND personally style them. Talk about a stylist’s dream come true. It’s so funny because I can’t tell you how many times I’d been at the mall, or out and about shopping and had someone tell me I ‘should be featured in those ads”, and that I “could totally do it”.

What a great team I’m so happy with how everything came together. Here’s a great little video that was put together of us getting ready for the big day.
