Remember when I wrote about Clinton's much-heralded visit to Calgary here and here? Shortly afterwards, my friends Ayesha, Nathalie, Kat, and I bought tickets for the June 18th hootenanny, and then we were off on our styling the weekend girls trip!
|Kat, me, Ayesha & Nathalie|
- The fierce/excited/giddy foursome depart the Budget Rent-a-car office in Edmonton, ready to head on the QE2 and get the stylish job done. But then… what happens?… they merge onto Calgary Trail and turn into Starbucks two minutes later.
- Opening the door to our amazing hotel room at Hôtel Le Germain – it was spacious, beautifully decorated in a modern chic style – and the duvet cover and the bed itself were so cozy and comfortable. We were impressed! (Dajana: I fell asleep minutes after my head hit the fluffy pillowy goodness. It was pure linen love.)
- Dajana taking action in her Take Action Anthro dress so we could meet Clinton and asking him a respectable/good question! She introduced us girls to him, and he smiled at us warmly. It was priceless. (Dajana: Yes, I waved my arms around madly trying to get his attention & was successful in bringing him over to where we were seated. Yay! Mission accomplished.)

- Also priceless – Clinton taking an oath at the end of his presentation, and beginning it by saying, "I, Clinton Kelly, the fabulous..." We couldn’t agree more. Funny and down-to-earth, he was well worth the trip and the investment in some quality girlfriend time. Thanks, Mr. Kelly for bringing us together. (Dajana: Couldn't have said it better myself - thanks Ayesha! Take a bow ladyfriend - you did good. You come back now, y'hear?)

Ciao for now friends!
