The wings are wide

I didn't sleep very well last night. I was tossing and turning and having crazy dreams all night long. I woke up this morning feeling a tad dehydrated. I suppose that's what a night with the girls and a lot of red wine on a Thursday will do to you. Perhaps my exhaustion is a result of the realization that this is just the beginning of a weekend jam packed with events and engagements. There will undoubtedly be much more eating, drinking and shopping over the next few days.

Last night was the Girls Will Be Girls event at Underworld. A few of us met up after work at The Granville Room to share some yummy appetizers and enjoy a couple glasses of Inniskillin Pinot Noir. Then it was on to the event, sponsored by Underworld, DC Shoes, Lou Lou Magazine, and Barefoot Wine. It was an evening of shopping, catching up with the girls, fabulous clothes and shoes, manicures, and me personally tasting every single one of the wines that Barefoot makes...plus way too many chocolate covered pomegranate seeds to count.
Out of Sonoma County, Barefoot's wines are delicious and very affordable, I definitely recommend that you give them a try.
Tonight, I'm heading back to the old hood to attend the Mavi Jeans launch party for the new store opening in Kitsilano on West Fourth Avenue, being put on with Strut Magazine. I'm looking forward to being able to check out Mavi's latest Fall/Winter collection, sip on "Mavi-tinis" and Strut cocktails provided by Skyy Vodka and walk away with tons of fantastic swag! The gift bags sound amazing: containing the latest issue of Strut Magazine, L.A.M.B Fragrance by Gwen Stefani, Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker, Gravity Pope discount coupon, Pure Nail Bar gift vouchers, Mavi Jeans discount cards, CDs from EMI, Rimmel and Vichy Laboratories beauty products. How can you go wrong with that?
The rest of my weekend plans include farewell dinners and birthday parties. As much as I usually look forward to down time on the weekends, for once, I am anticipating being out and about and having so much to do. I will be playing the role of social butterfly for the next three days.
