Divas in the City
Sunday, 04 April 2010 00:00The city’s first Forum for Fabulousness. This event is an opportunity to join forces with other women who revel in their strengths and stay true to their values..
DivaGirl Inc. & Grace Corps Studios Presents
Toronto’s first Forum for Fabulousness
She’s got the upwardly mobile 9-5, company blackberry, one bedroom plus den, Pilates class pass and a weak spot for VIP sample sales. Everything is good on paper, but she’s searching for something more…and that’s not code for “boyfriend”. Call it meaning, passion or joie de vivre: She wants to be Diva-fied.
Are you living it large with fabulous Coach bags and Manolos but worried about making mortgage payments?
Does grandma bug you about when you’ll “settle down?”
Are some men intimidated by your success?
Do you play “nice” at work because you fear being called a bitch?
Are lifestyle differences (friends in the burbs) making friendships harder to maintain?
Have you hit a plateau in your fitness regime?
Women are poised to take over the world. Yes, we love outrageous proclamations –almost as much as outrageous footwear – but hear us out. We love men, we want men, but we don’t necessarily need them. We are starting businesses, buying real estate, traveling the world, postponing motherhood and staying single on purpose. (Gasp! On purpose??)
Yes, on purpose. Grandma may shake her head in bewilderment at your unfettered womb-- but we hear ya sistah. We understand. We hear it all too. When we choose to be ready, it will happen. We’ve learned that no love can succeed without self-love. So let’s revel in that: honest, unconditional, unabashed self-love. That is what Divas in the City is all about - loving yourself. We believe Toronto needs a forum for the fabulous females in our city – the movers and shakers who make no excuses for who they are.
Divas in the City presents the city’s first Forum for Fabulousness. This event is an opportunity to join forces with other women who revel in their strengths and stay true to their values. Divas in the City is a socially driven, goal-directed event that will feature seven experts in areas that are essential to the urban woman’s lifestyle:
1. Money- Divas & Money
Did you come up short for last month’s rent/mortgage after that sample sale?
2. Food- Divas & Nutrition
Is “diet” part of your daily vocabulary?
3. Fashion- Divas and Style
Are you bored of your style and wanting to personalize your look?
4. Purpose - Divas and Goal Setting
Does the term “Goal Setting” remind you of a cheesy exercise from corporate HQ?
5. Fitness- Divas and Physical Health
Do you keep your gym membership solely out of guilt?
6. Sex- Divas and Relationships
Does it feel like they lied when they told you women “peak at 35”?
7. Beauty – Divas and Self Care
Is your “beauty regime” limited to lip-gloss and mascara application in the rear view mirror?
