I am both honoured and very excited that Γ‰LISE was featured in the holiday issue of Boulevard Magazine (and that I got to wear my pajamas for the photos)! I’ve had lots of kind compliments and feedback regarding the article. One woman asked my sister if her mum was in the magazine; I’m hoping that was just because of my grey hair.

Regardless, it’s great to see something that im so passionate and spend so much time working on being shared within the community. I feel very lucky!

I was a bit nervous to be photographed by the talented Lia Crowe, but she was so kind and kept me giggling the whole time. Between Lia and Jen Clarke, who did my beautiful makeup, we had a blast taking photos in pajamas at the Fairmont Empress.

I was also fortunate enough to partner with Boulevard to help create their holiday gift guide. Alongside Lia, I compiled a list of my favourite local brands and businesses and selected items which are best for gifting. Whether it’s for the fashion inclined, the local enthusiast, the man in your life or simply for putting in a stocking, I think there’s something great for everyone in our Holiday Gift Guide.

The holiday issue of Boulevard Magazine is linked below, or you may pick up your paper copy at one of the city’s many distributors.

I hope you like it! Happy holiday shopping!
