Nowadays, women are busier than ever: working hard during the day gunning for a fulfilling career that allows them to define themselves independently of their family role, studying part-time to ensure continued education, training to stay fit so they can enjoy life, planning date nights to nurture the relationship with their partner at home, all while raising and caring for a few kids who look to them for comfort, love and positive role-modeling. Being a modern woman can be downright exhausting!
So it is no surprise that an event designed especially to pamper women and allow them to embrace their sexy side has experienced such success in Ottawa. In its second year, Blush is being held on Friday, March 8, 2014 at the downtown Ottawa Marriott Hotel to accommodate growing demand.
Blush founder Bri Anderson-Jackson understands the importance of making time for herself as a woman. A wife and mother to seven children, Bri also works as a photographer and event organizer. How does she balance all these responsibilities? “I am the type of person who is always on the go, multi-tasking and getting things done. I make time for my business, time for the children and date night with my husband. I guess I wouldn’t be me if I was not surrounded by constant movement and a little chaos.”
Anderson-Jackson found her passion years ago in boudoir photography where she provides a platform for a woman to rediscover or play up her sexy side, no matter what age or size. It was only natural that this more intimate platform spill over into a larger-scaled event for more women to enjoy together: “I have always wanted to host a fun event for women only. I do not feel it is being done enough in Ottawa, so it only seemed fitting to do it in conjunction with International Women’s Day.”
Marketed as the ultimate girls’ night out, the cost of a ticket includes hors d’oeuvres, desserts, a drink ticket, the opportunity for a massage, nail polish application, hair styling, access to a photo booth, a chance for a professional photograph by Bri Anderson-Jackson, live musical entertainment by DJ Choice and DJ Casual, a pyjama party at midnight, the chance to win door prizes and a fabulous swag bag filled with beauty products.
So no matter your age, this evening is a chance to connect with friends, old and new, and celebrate your femininity.
