Waterloo Fire Fighters "Heat in the Streets" Fashion Show

Well the show was a rip roaring success yet again! our Waterloo Professional fire fighters have been there for CNIB in raising over $30,000 in this event!!
We are so proud to be involved with such an amazing organization. This man in the FabFem Sandwich is Mr. Mike Noonan a very humble man with a heart of GOLD!
He has dedicated his time and efforts to making this event run smoothly. Planning every detail and coordinating with the WFFPA ( Waterloo Fire Fighter Professional Association)
to sell tickets and tirelessly canvas to help raise money for CNIB and many other charities. Crystal and myself were lucky enough to have met Mike at the Total Woman’s show in 2009 and after meeting him
and all the amazing Fire Fighters in the WFFPA there was no doubt we would help in what ever way we could!

We gave away a FabFem Diamond Series Mega Super Model Experience. A total of a $1495 value package for the GRAND raffle prize!
Congratulations to the lucky woman at the show that won this package. We cannot wait to get to work with you.

Working backstage was a blast!!! It's always hectic getting 30+ people ready for the catwalk but let me tell you... between the dressing assistants, stage managers and the firefighters themselves doing quick changes etc. we didn't miss one cue! You all cannot imagine the pleasure I took in getting these guys made up in drag makeup!!! LOL Such great sports! It was also my absolute pleasure to work with the beautiful female firefighters. These ladies are so inspiring and really do encompass all that we hold true with the Fabulous Feminine!!!

Adele… girl I really don’t know how you do it… whoot hoot!

Here’s one of our most favourite morning show hosts from 91.5 The Beat Adele Newton - working the crowd in to frenzy for the WFFPA men and women fashion show volunteers.

Carlos, I do believe was being carried in by our strong and sassy women firefighters!
oh yes here is is. Don’t get to used to that Carlos!!!

Now Adele did seem to have a hard time consentrating on her HOSTING duties…
but who could blame her! With so many wonderful and amazingly HOTT Fire-fighters around who could blame her for sometimes getting a little lost in the view.

It really was a rip roaring good time… and yes that IS a SPICE Girl (it might even be the Chief…shhhhhhhh!)
All in all it was a fantastic night for a great cause and we are proud of our Fire Fighters, with much love and anticipation… what are you doing next year crew?????

Not ones to sit back and rest - they are Fire Fighters after all!! - our Waterloo Crew was out Thursday morning battling a monster blaze near the University of Waterloo.
We regret to report that we have lost our Mel’s Diner and other store in that plaza.
Our prayers are with everyone who fought the blaze and for the merchants who have lost their stores in the terrible accident.
Hugs... Crystal & Nancy xo

a little Inspiration...

Wanted to supply some inspiration on such a gorgeous day! This quote is often attributed to Nelson Mandela as it was part of his Presidential Inauguration speech. Beautiful words that we should all try to remember in times of doubt!

Wishing you all a happy and blessed Easter weekend with family and friends!

Hugs... Crystal xo

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Marianne Williamson
