Get Your Bliss On

Cocktail Deeva Shakin’ it up at Mabel Bliss ’10

BlissDom Canada is a 2 day, 3 evening conference that brings together the best in blogging, social media and public relations. It’s the 2nd year that the conference has taken place and Mabel will once again be joining all the fun. We’ll be kicking off the evening festivities on Friday with the Mabel Bliss power hour right after the last session of the day.

Last year the Mabel Bliss event was a hit with 5 minute make-over’s, profile picture photo shoots, yummy nibbles & more. This year it will be just as fabulous if not more and we can’t wait to watch the #MabelBliss hash tag light up. Cocktail Deeva will once again be shakin’ up Mabel’ Tini’s at this years good old fashioned glam event that is Mabel Bliss!

The Art of Defining Yourself and Your Creative World” with Cocktail Deeva – Dee Brun, Finance expert – Gail Vaz-Oxlade, Design Editor for Chatelaine –  Kimberley Seldon and CBC personality – Patty Sullivan. Co-Founder Tricia Mumby will also be play the role of Entrepreneur Tribe Leader over the course of the conference and act as a mentor for attendees on any and all entrepreneurial questions they have. I’ll be mixing and mingling throughout the conference & if you spot Julie, Tricia or myself be sure to stop us and say hi. We love getting to know our Mabel friends in real life!

Mabel Does City Quest 2011

The 5th Annual, United Way of Burlington and Greater Hamilton CityQuest Challenge was on Saturday, September 24, 2011. CityQuest is presented by the Hamilton International Airport and is a fundraising event to generate funds for at-risk-youth programming in the Burlington and Hamilton communities. The challenge is a city-wide scavenger hunt with teams of four scouring the community to find hidden gems, face fun challenges and try to accumulate as many points as possible to walk away the champions.

Mabel staffers Catherine, Melissa, Diane & Kim worked together as a team and had a blast participating in the challenge! They also did an amazing job of hosting bake sales & rallying friends & family to reach their fundraising goal for the United Way.

Team Mabel had to gather such items as a spare tire, a hard hat, fuzzy dice, eye glasses, movie poster and more! They also had to try to visit as many checkpoints as we could throughout the city. At each stop, they had to answer questions about the location. This Challenge enabled the team to see different parts of our beautiful city, Hamilton.

We are lucky to have Melissa, Diane, Catherine & Kim as part of Team Mabel! Way to go!
