I'm NOT Gonna Feel Bad...

So if you have been on twitter in the past few days, you have seen all the BUZZ about the Toronto She is Connected Conference...

If you've not seen the buzz...well just scroll down to the recipe...

I found out about the conference through a Fabulous friend of mine this past Thursday. I went online, researched the event and thought it sounded like something I would take the day off of work for ( stay at home mom of 4). Who's kidding who...I would take the day off work to park cars if it meant getting a break...

So cut the BULLSHIT!! It sounded like an AMAZING event, with FAB swag, great sponsors and a room full of AMAZING women...Who the hell wouldn't want to go...

So I applied, and I got invited...AND I AM TOTALLY FUCKING STOKED!
There I said..out loud..well in black and white...but if you want to hear me say it, just call...

So now there is a whole bunch of Fabulous women..tweeting and twirping about NOT-being connected and NOT-getting an invite. Some even saying that they "must not be good enough to go"...or "it's WHO you know, not how your connected"...Come on..REALLY?

I have a lot of pet peeves..shit pisses me off easily..But one of my biggest is when Women shit on other Women...or Shit on themselves...Drives me nuts...and Yes..I am saying Shit a lot!

I didn't beg to go to this conference, I don't know any of the women running it, I'm not connected to the heir of the Caramilk Secret. I am a stay at home mom from Kitchener Ontario who works her ass off at what she does...and I'll be damned if anyone is going to make me feel bad for getting to do something cool...!

Yes I wish that every Fabulous woman I know got to go, who wouldn' a perfect world. Because all Fabulous women deserve to experience something cool...

When my girls went off to BlogHer and I stayed home cleaning shit out of my shag carpet...I told them all I was a Fabulous shade of Green with Envy, to have an amazing time, take tons of pictures and TWEET THE SHIT OUT OF IT!! So I could feel like I was there...

When some of my ladies jetted off to NYC for Disney's big announcement or Nate's show...same deal...KEEP ME POSTED!! CONGRATS YOU DESERVE IT!! ENJOY EVERY LAST MOMENT!

These are all things that should be said to your women friends or your twitter friends...Why is it so hard to be genuinely happy for others? Too enjoy others successes as well as your own?

I personally think I chat with some of the best people on Twitter...and to all of you who showed me some luv about the invite and about shakin it up at #mabelbliss and Blissdom...THANK YOU..I have worked really hard and I AM proud of myself...

So I am standing up in my Fabulous heels and shouting it from the roof top of George Clooney's House....



She's Connected Cosmo...

2 oz Hpnotiq
1/2 oz Chambord
3 oz White cranberry Juice

Shake all ingredients well with ice. Strain into a
Martini glass and garnish with fresh fruit and a kind word.

It Gets Better...

I'M NOT GAY...but I know gay people...

These gay people that I know...are some of the most amazing friends a person could have and I am truly blessed that they are a part of my life. So to imagine them being harassed or tormented in anyway, makes me sick to my stomach.

I'M A HUMAN BEING...and I am a mother of 4 fabulous children. It's my mission in life to make sure they grow up happy, healthy, confident, fierce, fair, honest, kind, tolerant and giving. It is out of my hands whether they grow up straight or gay.

I'M A SURVIVOR...14 years ago, on a snowy, cold February day, my beautiful older brother MARC BRUN committed suicide. He was 26 years old and he was my joy.

Marc wasn't gay, but he was tormented by something non of us understood, much like these young adults who take their own lives so tragically. Imagine having to live in secret, misunderstood. Feeling trapped because society says it's not a crime to call people names like Fag, Queer, Fruit or Sissy. Afraid to just your life.

As HUMAN BEINGS we are supposed to be the top of the intelligence food chain. So why are we the only species that purposely berate, ridicule & diminish one anther's existence. We are HUMANS yet we treat each other worse than animals.

I don't "know" gay, I will never understand what it's like a be so afraid and carry that kind of secret around.

But I "know" loss .........

Being kind can save lives.

- It Get's Better -



So if your 1 of the 2 people, besides my mom, who read my blog. You will know there are few things that I love more than Vodka...It's not that I love drinking it all the time, if that was the case I might be writing this from a tiny room with Lindsay Lohan as my room mate. I love mixing it... and experiment with it...and seeing just how FABULOUS I can get it to taste (just a sip).

So that is why this post is all about my DREAM JOB, well other than being George Clooney's Black Berry...Just imagine how many times he pushes those buttons...I digress....

Belvedere Vodka has
launched a search for the World’s Greatest Vodka Ambassador with “A Bartender’s Dream Job". One lucky bartender can win a $100,000 contract working directly with the brand.

They will get to travel around the world and teach people how to make FABULOUS cocktails with Belvedere Vodka and how to be, like moi...a VODKA LOVER.

You don't have to be a bartender to win this DEEVINE gig...You just have to be... like moi...A VODKA LOVER!

Bartenders and vodka enthusiasts are encouraged to show the world their creativity and talent by uploading video submissions to
Don't be something with the 3 F's...Fun, Fearless and FABULOUS...
