If I haven’t mentioned it before, I have the absolute coolest big brother. He has a very glamorous  job as a freelance event planner and has some amazing contracts…one of them is working with the Juno Awards (The Canadian Music Awards).


I have gone to the awards in the past and Ava has always begged to go…and as a HUGE surprise for her 13th Birthday Jeff got her and I tickets for the big show in Ottawa. Like that wasn’t huge enough, he got us wristbands for an autograph session called FanFare on Saturday at Rideau Centre. We got to walk the red carpet  and hang out in the Red Carpet Lounge with all of the nominees before the show, a once in a lifetime experience!!! And the added bonus, we each brought along a very lucky friend for a complete girls weekend.


Here we are at FanFare waiting to get autographs with Tyler Shaw, Ruth B, Coleman Hell and Marianas Trench. We thought it would be fun to get Ava a brand new pair of white chucks, have them autographed and then wear them to the awards the next night. She was a little unsure at first, but once she saw how interested the singers were and Tyler Shaw told her they were ‘sick’ she was just beyond!


They were really the hit of the night and both Ruth B and Tyler Shaw noticed she was wearing them the next night!


My beauty in her autographed shows and of course…duck face!


Here I am ready to go to the big show in my new dress and old school boom box purse!


The four girls on the red carpet…now that was a crazy experience! At some points people asked if we were ‘talent’, look at us just totally blending in…NOT!


These two girls looked amazing and it was ‘the coolest thing they have ever done’, and that goes for me too!


Here is Ava with her crush Tyler Shaw…and OMG he liked her photo on Instagram.


And me with my crush Jim Cuddy, sadly he did not like my Instagram photo…sniff, sniff.

Then we were off to watch the incredible show! It was truly a magical unforgettable night and I am so grateful to Jeff for going to all of the extra work to make us feel so special!

And on another exciting note, my Granny turned 100 yesterday…how truly incredible! That woman is still sharp as a tack and we are having a family celebration on Saturday, complete with a few surprises!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
Your friend in fashion…amy.
