It’s hard to believe that it’s been one year since we relocated to our new studio space on W. 1st Ave in Kitsilano.  More over, I’m thrilled to be celebrating three years of being in business!  My how time flies!  I feel very humbled and extremely blessed for the success my team and I have had over the last 3 years.  The outpouring of support from everyone around us has been overwhelming.  From our loyal clients to our industry friends, and of course our family – THANK YOU!

The idea of a one-stop beauty and style studio was a dream of mine for many years.  In fact it was conceived back in 1997; I still have my notes, journals and sketches of what I wanted to achieve in my career.  It has been a long journey of learning, growing, falling down and getting back up etc., and in the end, I managed to manifest my dreams into the reality that I live today.  It’s remarkable what you can achieve when you stay focused, have a tenatious spirit, work hard, and love and respect the people around you!

Thank you to everyone who made it to my “Gratitude with NadittudeTM” soiree; I’m always so impressed with everyone’s kindness, support and love!  Special THANK YOU to my amazingly talented team (Vanessa, Annelie, Julie, Roberto, Laine, Cathy, Jason, Madeline and Rebecca).  You are always open to accepting new opportunities and working together in such a positive way!  It truly is a pleasure to work with each and ever one of you!

Thanks, Angel Casanova, for doing such a beautiful job on all of the salon upgrades and renovations!  You nailed it, my friend!

Merci to all the sponsors and vendors (mentioned above) for your generosity, time and for helping me bring this event to life!  Holly, these photos capture the vibe of the evening so vividly!

To my friends and family, especially my mom — Thanks you for always being so encouraging, loving and nurturing.  You have been my sounding board, cheerleaders and fans since day one; GRAZIE!

Of course, to my partner in crime, my right hand man, my husband; who I am so incredibly in love with — thank you for putting up with me and my crazy ideas and late nights.  You are my rock and I would not have achieved my goals without your love and blessings!

Salute, Everyone!
