Tony A. Gaskins – Real Love Tour Montreal!

  
After Toronto, Los Angeles, Miami, Jacksonville and Tampa, the “Expert” Tony A. Gaskins, certified in marital relations life coach and speaker, will be in Montreal on Saturday, July 18th as part of his anticipated The Real Love Tour. The Bonaventure Hotel (900 Rue de la Gauchetière O, H5A 1E4) will host this interactive conference which is designed to open a dialogue on seeking and maintaining healthy relationships. You don’t want to miss out on this event!

Tony A. Gaskins is one of the most sought-after motivational speakers in the United States. Followed by millions on social media, he devotes himself to his seminars and lectures on different subjects such as love, business, success and self-development. He was featured on many television programs including “Tyra Banks Show” and famous “Oprah Winfrey Show”, where he shared his troubled past in the world of drugs and violence. He is also the author of several books, a professional life coach (to many NFL and NBA athletes), a relationship consultant and producer. Most importantly, he is a husband and father. 

On July 18, men and women, couples and singles are invited to benefit from Gaskins’ expert advice on how to remain happily married or on how to invest the work necessary to meet the ideal partner. 

“We live in a society where the divorce rate and the number of singles is rising steadily. By inviting a renowned expert from the United States, we, in Montreal will be exposed to a perspective from a different culture which will enrich our knowledge.” said Golda Simon, President and Founder of Gold Diva Events

Considering that nearly 41% of Canadian marriages end in divorce and that many people remain single despite themselves, this seminar is pertinent to our current society and definitely worth attending. Translation services will be made available. 

TICKETS range from $ 30 – $ 60 | $ 100 VIP Cocktail

If you can’t make it in person, there will also be a Live Webcast for only $17

Get your tickets here and for more on this event, please visit www.reallovetourmontreal.com.

Camilla Belle in Preen!



Camilla Belle attended the Moët & Chandon event honouring Brand Ambassador Roger Federer‘s history making 1000th career match win at the Four Seasons Hotel last Saturday (March 7) in Beverly Hills, California. She showcased such flair in a beautiful printed Preen Pre-Fall 2015 wrap dress. The British designer duo have caught my attention with this wonderful piece that plays with layers, prints and colours. Belle accessorized with a white box Lee Savage ‘East Stack’ clutch and heeled it off with black strappy Brian Atwood sandals. Her makeup was kept minimal for a soft yet natural look and she completed her overall vibrant look with the perfect black mani/pedi.

RSVP presents A Culture Chic Affair – April 4, 2015! *TICKET GIVEWAY*

Will you be in the Nation’s Capital on Easter Long Weekend? If so, make sure to attend the RSVP presents A Culture Chic Affair on April 4, 2015 at 6pmDelta Ottawa City Centre, 101 Lyon St, Ottawa, Ontario (Canada). This is an event you don’t want to miss so mark your calendars!!!

Culture Chic Affair was designed to promote local businesses in Ottawa, Ontario that cater to African, Caribbean and other major cultures that exist in Canada while also supporting charities to help make the community a better place. This event will be promoted through food, music, fashion and art. It will help support and establish new and existing companies by providing them with the recognition that they deserve.

What to expect:        

I had the wonderful opportunity to interview RSVP Events Canada about this upcoming event, inspirations and future projects. Check it out below…

More about this event:
RSVP: This elegant, upscale event will feature 5 to 6 exclusive designers from Ontario. Just to name a few designers lined up, we have Jena & Emilia FashionWidlyne Rose and AMM Line Productions
What inspired you to host such an affair?
RSVP: I* am in the events industry and deal with clients from all sorts of different cultures. Most of these clients want to incorporate culture touches to their events. With no one to really cater to them, it was hard to make this happen. We are constantly digging deep to find local vendors to cater to them. Hence why we decided to create the event to promote and showcase the vendors that I* eventually found out that they actually existed, but did not have the support and recognition. 
Why is it important for Canada to host events such as this and for everyone to come out?
RSVP: I* think Canada lacks support in the Culture side of things especially in the Afro/Caribbean area. We have a lot of amazing companies in Ottawa/Ontario and within Canada that are basically unknown. This event will hopefully get them on the map and on the road to success. We urge everyone in the community to come out and support them. 
Can you tell me more about RSVP Events Canada, your role and how you got involved?
RSVP: I* Co own RSVP Events. RSVP Events is Ottawa’s top “one of a kind” certified wedding, corporate and specialty event planning firm. We specialize in creating unique and creative events starting with your vision, expectations and style. Like most event planning companies we stand by our professionalism and attention to detail. Our mission is to alleviate as much stress as possible while designing and developing lasting memories and catering to our clients’ needs so that they can actually enjoy the event. I* created this event with my lovely team (a dream team of 10 amazing girls) and we are excited to see it come to life. 
What other events can we expect from RSVP Events Canada?
We are always creating great events. We will keep you all posted.

Chrissy Teigen in Temperley London!

4th Annual NFL Honors - Arrivals
Chrissy Teigen looked ravishingly beautiful while attending the 2015 NFL Honours event at the Pheonix Convention Center with her hubby John Legend, who looked quite dapper himself (but back to her)….She was a vision from head to toe in Temperley London. She showed off her toned legs and taut tummy by pairing a sheer sand tulle crop top and a patterned high-waisted ivory skirt featuring a thigh-high-slit. She accessorized her look with a silver Rodo clutch and nude Stuart Weitzman sandals.
