Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Super awesomesauce workout this morning, then I head to my "office" in the lobby of the Crystal Pool & Fitness Centre to do a little blogging...and I am thwarted.

It's like red threw up all over the lanterns, red table cloths, red decorations, red writing on the windows, and little Chinese ladies wearing red Mandarin collared jackets and cheongsams.  There is quite the impressive spread of home-made food that has been brought in by all these fabulous, rowdy women.  The sign outside reads:  The ladies invite you to our Chinese New Year Luncheon, Feb 4, 11 30 AM.

It should have read:  Suzie, run.  Run for your life...好吃 chow mein has appeared in the most unlikely of places.  Confucius say, caution: egg rolls and sticky rice ahead!

Much as I would have liked to have had a little taste of the year of the snake...I honoured the lunar new year by briskly walking home with the music cranked, dancing a little lion dance at each red light.  Rawr!  Or "slither" the case may be.


  1. Hi Suzie,

    If I remember correctly, you work at Mac. I came into Mac in the spring of last year, or the year before (can't quite remember). You helped me pick out products and taught me techniques that really helped me see myself as beautiful. What was the most rewarding of the entire process was to see how much of an incredibly beautiful soul you have. I remember you were lighthearted, funny, and making jokes. You helped me feel comfortable in my own skin and showed me colours that complimented my complexion. In that short amount of time you helped me see myself!

    I'm so glad to see that you're taking steps to improve your health. You are someone who gives so much to help other people feel beautiful, and i'm thrilled that you are taking steps to show the world that you're just as beautiful on the on the outside as you are on the inside. I'll be following your story, thanks for sharing it with the world. It's an inspiration.


    1. I do indeed work at MAC Elizabeth, you are correct!

      And thank you so much for commenting on my blog, the fact that you remembered me from our experience together warms my heart.

      I truly love what I do - it is amazing to be able to help people discover their beauty...I get to be your ally in the mirror. The person who confirms what you already know, and who introduces you to what you might not have discovered yet.

      It's a pretty amazing journey that I am now on...and I'm glad that you're laughing along with me. This is my chance to have a make-over...on the inside as well as out.

    So sweet! Am planning a visit to Mac soon to meet you and get some makeup advice for my wedding!


    1. I'm currently on leave, so I won't be there...but go in anyway, all our MAC artists are amazeballs!
