Then my [...]

I fell head over heels in love with Becky’s (aka Tortilla Girl) designs when I came across them on one of those happenstance web searches. At the time I was actually looking for a bag for personal use and came across this beauty, but then quickly became entranced by her clothing line. In particular her [...]

Entrepreneur Profile: Moop Bags

One of the things that has kept Lauren and I go through the book dreaming/writing/promotion process is the amazing, smart and savvy business gals we get to meet and learn about.

This profile, of one of my absolute favourite local clothing designers, kicks off our Boss Lady Profiles section (in truth we profiled a few gals eons ago, but given the long period of dormancy it seems hardly fair to count those). Eventually we’ll branch out, but for starters we’ll be profiling some of the truly [...]

Profile: Lunapads Products International

Before we jump into a profile of Lunapads, I would like to take a moment for some full disclosure. One of the things we are most excited about with this whole project (the website and book) is the opportunity to meet other business women, this profile however is of some very dear friends.
