And to continue with yesterday’s post, here’s what else I’ve been doing but with my cupcake company, Dolce Delights!
Young Women in Business (YWiB) SFU Launch Party
As a proud member of YWiB SFU, I was completely thrilled when they contacted me to partner up for the 2011 launch party. Sadly, I wasn’t even there! I heard it was a blast, however, and the cupcakes were gone within minutes. Looked like a super fun event though!
Invito Couture Grand Reopening Party
Another event that I sadly had to have missed. Invito Couture, a store selling beautiful gowns and cocktail dresses imported from Turkey, recently moved to a bigger and better (and more suitable) location on South Granville. The night was filled with wine and cupcakes — match made in heaven.
SFU Student Entrepreneur of the Year 2011
SEY. Okay, this is actually something I have been waiting for since last year. The name’s pretty self-explanatory. Hesitant to compete last year, I felt that I was ready for the competition this time around. Currently in the preliminary rounds, I’ll get to know if I made the second phase by Halloween. Crossing fingers. It’s kind of a really big deal and I am so excited to be taking part in this!
The 2011 Notable Awards
Now this one came as a complete surprise to me. I noticed an ad in the Metro paper last week that nominations were ending for the Notable Awards. What’s that? It’s basically an award that recognizes up-and-coming young professionals in various categories all across Canada. I had nothing to lose… and guess what… I MADE IT IN THE TOP 10 IN THE LIFESTYLE SERVICES CATEGORY! What the HELL. Pretty exciting news. Big deal? Kinda. I’m up against two Food Network chefs (OMG CHUCK HUGHES!!!) and local foodies, Erin Ireland and Gourmet Fury! Finalists go to Toronto nexts month for the actual awards ceremony. Please vote for me?!
And that’s, that! Some sweet news may materialize within the next week or so. God. I love being 22.
