Beautiful Mama! Beautiful Baby! Beautiful Bag!

Friday, October 16th, 2009

Jazz Artist, Amanda Martinez recently dropped by the Pink House boutique and brought a little surprise: Her gorgeous baby son!

beautiful Mom and Baby 001

beautiful Mom and Baby 002

We chatted about Amanda’s upcoming shows, the success of the Pink Bedroom Party, my fall 2009 line of handbags and enjoyed the gleeful giggles of her beautifully-bouncy boy! I just can’t think of a more brilliant way to have spent an otherwise rainy and gray afternoon!

Anyway … Their visit made me realized that the modern mother has evolved beyond the typical stereotypes of yesteryear. Step aside June Cleaver, Carol Brady and Elyse Keaton, and welcome the emergence of the real-life Supermom! Contemporary Mamas like Angelina Jolie, Katie Holmes and Jennifer Garner balance successful careers, philanthropic obligations and a busy family life, all the while looking fabulously fashion forward!  I don’t know about you, but I’m totally loving this whole modern mommy thing!

Casual Cross Body Unisex bag

One might ask herself, what do all urban Supermoms have in common? Well … They’re always the go, go GO!  That’s where my Casual Cross Body Unisex Bag comes to the rescue! It’s the ideal accessory for every Super-Mamasita. Perfectly convenient for diapers, wipes and designer bottom lotions, its super stylish cross body design lets marvellous mommies keep their arms ever-wrapped around their babies! Plus, it’s made from a durable and entirely wipe-able leather-like material, able to handle the real-life use of real-life moms!

The moral of this post is that women no longer have to sacrifice their fashion-sense for motherhood! Say NO to MOM-JEANS and hold-on to your fabulous super-stylie self!  These days it’s all about beautiful mamas, beautiful babies, and beautiful bags!

Spice Up your Playlist with Amanda Martinez’s AMOR

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Pink Bedroom Party guest and renowned Jazz Artist Amanda Martinez is on the move! She’s launching her new CD Amor, with shows in London, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa this month!

Ladies and gentlemen, Señoras y señores, my ipod playlist just got saucier! If you ask me, nothing spices up a chilly fall evening better than some sultry Latin jazz! It’s the perfect soundtrack for a fabulous evening under the bright lights of the big city, and romantic enough to be the ideal score for any quiet evening at home for “dos” – wink, wink!

Make sure to visit Amanda’s website to hear Amor the title track from her new CD.


If you love her music and know of anyone in these cities who would enjoy seeing Amanda perform live, please help us spread the word about her upcoming concerts!

Thursday October 22nd, 8pm Aeolian Hall, London

Friday October 23rd, 8pm Koerner Hall, Toronto

Saturday October 24th 8pm L’Astral, (* Brand new venue!) Montreal

Wednesday October 28th, 8pm National Arts Centre, Fourth Stage, Ottawa

I hope we’ll see you at the Toronto show, because “True Happiness is … Sharing the music you love with the world.”

Now, please excuse me because I’m suddenly inspired to throw on some red lipstick and practice my salsa moves!

Adiós amigos!

Ladies, do we have a treat for you! If you happened to have missed Dolce Vita’s Chef David Rocco on eTalk last week, fret not, because we have the clip that’s sure to make your day … and maybe even your next meal!


David takes a break from his regular routine of jetsetting around Italy, and stops to chat with Traci Melchor about this year’s Dolce Vita-inspired, Pink Bedroom Party hors d’oeuvre menu. He even shares one of the evening’s delightful delicacies with eTalk viewers.

Watch it now to get the recipe!

Can you say “deeeee-lish!” I totally think finger food is tres-chic! I’m most definitely trying this dish at home the next time I throw a fabulous little soirée.

One thing’s for sure, when people are passionate about what they do, any dish or any party is sure to be a big hit!

Connections, Community and … True love is … True Happiness …

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

The state of the economy made it quite a challenge to host another Pink Bedroom Party this year. Luckily, I simply adore a good challenge – it makes things far more interesting and rewarding, don’t you think?

Pink Bedroom Party 2009 was like a reunion of old friends, spiced up with fresh new blood! No economic doom and gloom here friends, only 600+ gloriously beautiful people, adoring positivity pink couture, generously giving to support our wonderful causes!!!! It’s all about spreading the L-O-V-E …

The night began with a speech by CFRB’s Bill Carroll, the MC for the evening. He jovially recounted how seven years ago, he met his wife, Sylvie, at the Pink Bedroom Party. Now, they are a picture-perfect family of four. How FABULOUS … I mean, can you imagine? Love connections AND giving to great causes. What could be better?


I wonder if Cupid’s bow struck again this year? I guess we’ll have to wait and see!

Overall, I’d say this year’s event was a great success! Passionate people came together to give to worthy causes, at a party fused with positive energy! This year, we raised far more than money – we raised awareness, and created a community that supports SickKids and Princess Margaret hospital! Together, we made a difference!

So, the moral of the story is to NEVER give up in the face a challenge! Emails are still pouring in daily expressing how much everyone loved the event and how they’re really looking forward to Pink 2010! I always say that fabulousness rubs-off and this year, the proof is in the PARTY! AND, what’s the icing on the cake? We just had Chum FM radio confirm, they would love to sponsor Pink next year!!!

What goes around comes around. Oh YES, it’s definitely all about spreading the Love, creating connections, building communities that care … And never forgetting that True Love is … True Happiness!
