I will be hosting a “Simply You” evening, at my sister’s home, in Millidgeville. I won’t bore you with too many details but if you’re interested in attending, send me an email ( or give me a call and I’ll elaborate. You’ll get to view and audition Tina’s beautiful and affordable jewellery pieces.  Trust me – you won’t want to miss this evening…. The pieces are much better in person than on the web!  *grin*

Evenings or Weekends – Uptown, on Union Street:

Sudsmuffin: Your Bath Bakery offers your child and their friends an awesome, educative and CLEAN FUN experience.  Book a MiniMuffin Bath Bakery birthday or a “Cause I Love You” day. Prices are reasonable. And as they say, memories truly ARE priceless!
