It's no secret I'm a big fan of The Body Shop. I've been buying their cruelty-free products for three decades (can I get an amen for Dewberry?!) and I admire how they've stuck to their principles even as they've grown into an international mega brand.
Remember these tees and posters from the early nineties?
I'm particularly fond of The Body Shop's location at CF Rideau Centre because it's staffed by a passionate team of awesome people. Shop manager Lindsay and her crew are a community-spirited bunch, and we've collaborated repeatedly to support local causes close to our hearts (i.e., cats).
So we thought we'd team up again!
Next week The Body Shop Rideau will leave its longtime home on the third floor (where it's been since I moved to Ottawa in 2000), and will move to the second floor right across from Magpie Jewellery and Second Cup. The new concept store is gorgeous and you're invited to the grand opening party!
What: The Body Shop Grand Re-opening Party
Where: CF Rideau Centre, 2nd floor
When: Friday April 21, 2017, 9:30am - 9:00pm
Swag: First 50 customers get a special gift with purchase!

Say hello: I'm co-hosting from 4:00 - 6:00pm!

That's me and Lindsay, snapped by Hello Lovely Studio at our December collab. So much fun!
Drop by the store any time next Friday and we may just have a few surprises up our sleeves. I mean, we can't give away all our secrets can we?!
What I can tell you is Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue will be on-site raising funds and sharing info about how you can help local kitties. I'll be co-hosting from 4:00-6:00pm so please come say hello! I loved chatting with so many of you at our event back in December, and I'd love the chance to meet more of you IRL as they say.
And for we shopaholics, The Body Shop has launched a slew of new products you'll be able to grab at the party. Tune into my Instagram Stories all week because each day I'll give you a closer look at a few of my faves!
Click here to RSVP on Facebook and we'll fill our shopping baskets together next week. See you at The Body Shop!
