Beauty Buzz 411 Gives Back to “Fuck Cancer”

FCI_logo_doc_horAfter months of planning, the day has finally arrived for the Beauty Buzz 411 2nd Annual Charity Gala. There has been so much buzz and support, my heart is overflowing with love.

Two years ago when Beauty Buzz 411 launched, I knew that I wanted to celebrate my anniversary each year by giving back to charity. BB411 has blessed me with the opportunity to work with amazing companies and I have met incredible people along the way. I believe that one person can make a difference and no amount of giving is too small.

Last year on BB411 Anniversary I cut my hair and donated 11.5″ to Locks of Love, the proceeds raised went to the Make a Wish Foundation. With such a great turn out,  the hype for this years event has been building for months. We hope to beat our success from last year and give back by bringing awareness to an amazing organization for a cause that has affected so many people. 545684_10152582073880621_111483793_n

When scouting out what charity to support for this years gala, I kept coming across Fuck Cancer. There was just something that kept drawing me to the organization and it felt very dear to my heart. From the moment I got in contact with the team they have opened their hearts and supported me in so many ways. I love the community they have and their focus on education and early detection. As the weeks went on I soon realized that Fuck Cancer was not just a charity, it was a family. Fuck Cancer educates Gen Y on early detection, prevention and the communication of cancer.

With the help of an incredible team I wanted to create a photo shoot that would show my support and capture the raw beauty of this amazing charity. I wanted to take a stand and not only be a voice that supported the cause, but be part of the change I want to see in this world. I had the absolute pleasure to be shot by Photographer Martin Szabo, Stylist Crystal Carson, Make Up Artist Allison Giroday and Hair Stylist Simon James.

After doing our shoot I went through a health scare with the C word and lost a friend to Cancer. This event soon became closer to my heart. Stay tuned for the in-depth story

I want to send a great BIG THANK YOU to the following individuals and companies, your generous support and beautiful hearts made this night possible. To all those that are attending I look forward to a great night ahead.

Giving Back~Anniversary Charity Event





On February 25th, 2012 Beauty Buzz 411 celebrated it’s one year anniversary. I wanted to do something special and decided I would take the opportunity to hold an event and support two different charities. Charity work has always been dear to my heart and I think it is important to give back and pay it forward. I wanted to show that one person can make a difference. The event took place at Hype Hair Studio in Vancouver, where we celebrated with music, wine and cupcakes! At the event my hair stylist, the amazing and talented Jessica Viel cut my hair live! For everyone in Vancouver looking for a great stylist check out Jessica and book today. You can see in the pictures that I had a lot of hair to donate and I’m now learning how to become creative with my new do. My hair was donated to Locks of Love and all the proceeds from the event went to Make a Wish Foundation. These two charities are incredible and I encourage each and every one of you to get involved with an organization close to your heart

The event was a huge success and I am already looking forward to next years. I also want to extend a very special thank you to all the sponsors and companies involved that helped make this event a huge success.
