We are a little bit late posting this. HOWEVER, couple of weeks ago, 4 of us attended the Get Gorgeous Gala event hosted by Murale. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Murale, it’s a one stop beauty shop. They range from makeup, skincare, to fragrance products. They offer luxurious and prestigious brands. It’s kind of a branch off Shoppers Drug Mart, so you can use your optimum card to collect points!
This event was to help raise money for the Look Good Feel Better foundation. Look Good Feel Better is “Canada’s only cancer charity dedicated to empowering women to manage the effects that cancer and its treatment have on their appearance, and often on their morale.” Not to mention, 100% of the proceeds went towards this charity. Overall, Murale was able to raise over $3,600! Awesome job!

It was a great afternoon well spent. Sherry L. Abbott(2nd from the right in the picture above) who was a survivor of cancer was there to give a brief powerpoint presentation about this wonderful charity. She was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer at a tender age of 30. Along the journey her spirit was shattered, however she was determined that she would overcome it. 23 years later, she’s now the executive director of the CCTFA Foundation, and has also started an online community called facing cancer.
A little more on the Look Good Feel Better foundation:
-started in 1992 by the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CCTFA)
– has helped more than 130,000 women
-only cancer charity that offers 2 hour- workshops that empower women by teaching them how to look good through their journey.
They call it a…..
“makeover for the spirit.”
We also had a presentation from Chantal Guertain(above, pic taken from murale), the Editor for TheKit.ca , where she discussed this seasons hottest trends. Be sure to check out the website, there are plenty of beauty and fashion tips!
