As well, there were 3 stages where presentations and such were occurring. There were also people offering health and wellness information, posture checks, gym passes etc.
I had a complimentary styling done on my hair by Angelina Fitz-Henry from Cowboys & Angels (and I looked great!)
I grabbed the business card for The Nu Me Boutique, as my birth mom has shopped there since they specialize in products for women who have had mastectomies.
As well, there was a booth about Thermography, which is a non-invasive, radiation-free monitoring of breast health. And another booth offered information about mammograms and the Ontario Breast Screening Program (toll free information number is: 1-800-668-9304.)
Latasia - has cool jewelry. So did Stella & Dot and -- crap, the one place did jewelry, scarves & purses... but I am currently blanking on the name. EDITED to add: it was SheBella!
Wicked is coming to Centre in the Square - which is pretty exciting... though there are other events coming up too.
There were a number of booths that had tea products; my favourite being Distinctly Tea.
I saw a line up at the booth for Align-Right, as a lot of women were purchasing pillows.
I grabbed some information from two different booths about senior care, one was Home Instead and the other was Warm Embrace.
I grabbed an information sheet from Lotus Meditation.
My friend purchased some clothing made from bamboo from Yogainn Sakuja, who told us that he is working on a website and when it's reading it should be elaNela.com but if you are interested in his products, you could contact him at elanela7 AT gmail DOT com.
There was a booth for Spanner. I've never been there before, but my friend was keen on it as she's shopped there before.
The one talk we were able to attend was "Weight Loss Revealed" presented by Bruce Kahn, author of The Fat Fighter Diet. Afterwards, my friend's mother purchased his book & some supplements from the Fiddleheads booth. Now Bruce also gave out a website address re: his personal training, but I don't remember what it was. If I found out, I'll link it in this entry later.
There was a booth with sample shakes from the Body By Vi program. Two shakes a day and one healthy meal, but I am not into meal replacements.
I was given a day pass for GoodLife Fitness. Though I'm not sure how I feel about GoodLife.
I grabbed some information from some friendly house-cleaning ladies from Polished Expectations (which I plan to pass on to one of my friends).
I tried to get close enough to smell some of the products at The Body Blessed, but it was too crowded.
There were many more booths and representatives there but these are the ones I was given information from.
There was just so much going on, I found it challenging to take everything in but it was enjoyable and I'd have to say that I don't know if I could have handled being out that long without the medication I am on.
