Founders Kyla & Jody, and Blogger Randa Salloum.

For any fashion loving woman, the idea of sitting down with a glossy magazine and flipping through the pages will always be more enjoyable than scrolling through on a screen. It is relaxing, inspiring, and the perfect way to break up the digital overload in our daily lives.

When I Like Her Style Founders Kyla Getty and Jody Belanger contacted me last year with their plan to launch a Vancouver Based Fashion Magazine, I was beyond excited. I saw their vision, and I believed in it. There is no shortage of talented women in business in this city, and Kyla and Jody saw an opportunity to connect, collaborate and a create a media movement to showcase this talent.

After months and months of hard work, these ladies turned their vision into a reality. Last week was the launch of the first issue, and to celebrate, they went ALL IN!! A private party held at Coast Restaurant, with a full guest list of Vancouver’s biggest influencers. No detail was missed; the decor, food, music, contests, prizes and swag bag were ALL great, and the entire event came together just perfectly! And who better to capture the night than Kim James Photography?!

Let’s talk about this swag bag. So many goodies inside!! The ladies of I Like Her Style not only hosted a fabulous party, they spoiled their guests with some amazing products too! I can’t wait to soak in the tub with these Kismet salts (maybe while drinking the Henkell’s and eating the candied pecans! ;-))

Stay tuned for next week’s post about my feature in the magazine. I can’t wait to share more with you!
