Better than a cruiseFairmont Jasper Park Lodge - Christmas in November
Last November I got to meet some fabulous women and present a fun series of image and dress seminars for the JPL Christmas in November at the beautiful Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Jasper, Alberta. It was my first time for Christmas in November and if you haven’t been, it’s like a cruise especially for women in the mountains.

Warning – it’s addictive.
Great food, great tips and advice to make Christmas and life more fun and more enjoyable. People attend this fabulous Fairmont getaway from around the world and many have been coming back for years.

We had such a great time that I was hoping they were going to ask me back. And I just heard from them, we’re going back! (Lucky Terry gets to go along as “my little helper”) Click here to see Christmas in November photos. Check out photo #11 – Terry with the tie and no head, dancing with me and 200 women.

As an image consultant, I presented dress seminars on tips for dressing for your figure type which was a surprise hit in the Jasper Park Lodge program which featured workshops, tastings, advice and tips from celebrity chefs, mixologists and decorators. (Caution – name dropping below.)

A little name dropping
I don’t like to name drop but … Like all of the attendees we got to wine and dine with celebrity chefs Ken Kostick, Anna & Michael Olson, Gail Hall, Elizabeth Baird, Julie Van Rosendaal and Michael Smith. As well as celebrity decorators like Karl Lohnes and Edmonton Journal columnists Liane Faulder, Chris Standring and the very funny Scott McKeen. (Scott attended one of my dress and image presentations and good-naturedly allowed us to do a makeover on him)

This year’s roster is sure to be as good if not better.  Click here to check out a fabulous girlfriend or family getaway  2 Night Weekend and 3 Night Midweek Packages.in one of the most beautiful resorts in the Alberta Rockies.

The staff at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge exemplify everything that Terry and I teach in our business etiquette and client relationship seminars. They will really make you feel like an honored guest and ensure your stay is memorable.

Bring your men – Terry had a blast.
Last year the weather was so warm at the beginning of Christmas in November that we got in some hiking and Terry got to kayak and do some fishing before it froze.
He is already salivating at the thought of the great food and activities in Jasper. (Anticipation of CIN is a little hard on his vow of living more in the moment as per Eckhart Tolle’s book The Power of Now. But Terry is trying to live more in the present, honest)

Enjoy the summer and I hope to see you in November!
