LEAN-MAZING Celebration at Notable Awards 2018!
Wednesday night at the Notable Awards was definitely a night to remember! As many of you may already know, I was nominated for Fitness Influencer of the Year, so I decided to take this opportunity to celebrate with some Squadies and of course, a whoopsie or two (or 7)!
The LEANSQUAD team, along with a my good highschool friend Andrew and my buddy Jarin from Nude Vodka Soda hit the awards for its opening at 7 PM. We began our night with a glass of wine from Wayne Gretzky’s Estates as we wove through the crowded venue. There were plenty of premium wine and champagne booths lining the walkways that led into the main hall featuring a stage and a colourful lit up dance floor. There were also some couches and cozy areas to sit in, with Christmas lights all around, giving the venue a cozy vibe.
The award ceremony began at around 9pm with hosts Brandon Prust, ex-nhler and Maripier Morin. Over 50 awards were announced, one being The Fitness Influencer of the Year. I am extremely grateful to all the Squadies out there who voted, because thanks to all of you, we won! After finding out the great news, we headed over to get the award and got to take some amazing photos with the team and I also got a photo with Squadie Brandon Prust! We toasted a glass of champagne then enjoyed a bottle of Kronenbourg Blanc as we watched Dwayne Gretzky Band play 90’s covers.
There were some yummy food booths to choose from, my favourite definitely being the lobster mac and cheese and the pulled pork sandwich by Chez’s. Moving to the centre of the room, FLOW water, one of our own amazing sponsors was set up, giving away their refreshing alkaline water. Close by was a candy station by Squish Candies. If you haven’t yet tried these amazing candies, you’ll get your chance to at our LEAN-MAS party tomorrow! After munching on some delicious food and treats, we headed over to the bar to try out some of the premium liquors on display. We tried a gin and tonic by Aviation, tequila by Aguamiel and Vodka by Stoli. (These were taster glasses, not full drinkies!!)
Overall, Notable hosted a great party and we all had an amazing time celebrating and enjoying a few too many whoopsies. THANK YOU to everyone who supported me, and I truly feel like the best is yet to come!
