On the moning of the second ever #YYCGirlGangHang, I finally got my act together and wrapped up editing the photos from the first hang last month! It was fun reminiscing again on that evening — such a fun night of drankin’ yummy Monogram bevvies and meeting local boss babes!

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I had mad butterflies moments before walking into the hang. Waltzing solo into a networking event? That’s so not me, on so many levels. But I took a deep breath and repeated my favourite mantra of all time: do it scared. And it totally paid off. As it always does. You know what you get when you put a bunch of talented girls with different passions and similar paths in one room? One of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have with some of the most inclusive, kind, and supportive girls you’ll ever meet. And lots of well-styled Instagram photos. And even more laughter.

It’d be an understatement to say that I’m grateful for spending those few hours with the lovely ladies who made it to this hang. I loved having such a unique opportunity to make new lady friends, talk about our passions, and be able to relate with each other about the tumultous, fun, frightful, and rewarding paths we’re on as boss babes. I love that such a beautiful community has come to life in this incredible city of creative souls. And this is just the beginning.
