Happy 1st Birthday to hug!

We can't believe it's already been a year since we launched this website. Wendy and I hosted a SOLD OUT birthday party last night with 200 of our closest friends to celebrate over at School Restaurant in Liberty Village, Toronto. 
Guests sipped on Pink Lady's, Berry Sangrias and Mimosas while chatting up new friends and networking with familiar faces. 
The rain held off for the rest of the night and we were able to enjoy a breezy evening on two patios. 
Prodigy Entertainment kept the music going, while Paintlounge ran our live canvas guestbook. Our friends from Diet Coke even brought along their Mobile Spa to treat our guests.
Here are a couple snaps from the night, with more on our Facebook Page. Enjoy!

See the FULL ALBUM online on our Facebook Page and tag away. Don't forget to LIKE our page before June 30th to be entered to win an Oxygen Facial ($130 value) from our friends at Elmwood Spa. Thanks again to everyone who braved the rain and the wonky King Streetcar to help us celebrate our first anniversary. 

Special thanks to my sister, Amy Ng - who gets roped into everything I do. She was nice enough to take all our photos.  Woo hoo Team Ng! Also shoutouts to Sarah Hamilton and her awesome team at School and our Hip + Urban Husbands for working the door and Jarvis Emerald for the upcoming video. Big ups to all our friends, readers, contributors, tweeple and supporters for making this website come as far as it has. xoxo --- Lisa & Wendy
