It's Spring, Let's Blossom: May 2022 Newsletter
MAY 2022 NEWSLETTER
They say that April showers bring May flowers...
Although I do not recall a significant downpour in April, May still proved to be a beautiful month in which to blossom. Business was straight forward, but May 2022 will forever be significant for me and hold a special place in my heart. Read on my dear Tribal reader to discover why.
Mother's Day 2022
For those of you who do not know, family is one of my core values.
For as long as I can remember, I have been blessed with a family that continuously provides unconditional love, support and encouragement through every journey and new adventure I travel in life. What I did not learn until recently, however, is that there are few individuals in this world who have the privilege of experiencing a similar close-knit and loving family relationship. My entire life has been beautifully veiled by this love and my recent unveiling has made me not only more aware but more grateful indeed.
Although I relocated from my family in 2020, leaving, what I consider an isolated community in Northern Ontario, for a more spirited life in Eastern Ontario, we still remain close. Thanks to the power of modern technology, it is easy to send updates and we never let a holiday pass without connecting. But, things got extra special for me this spring when I got to celebrate Mother’s Day, albeit a week late, with my mom, aunt and grandma in person in Ottawa! I do not think there are enough adjectives to fully describe the excitement I felt about getting to share my new City and home in person. This is the first time my aunt and grandma have gotten to experience my Boho vibin’ crib in person. It was a fast-paced, whirlwind visit, complete with wine, food, shopping, tulips and a lot of laughs…and a full behind the scenes glimpse of Bohemian Beach Boutique.
Shortly thereafter, I actually took a flight back to Northern Ontario to extend my visit AND assist my mom. After 25 years in the same home, she is gearing up for a big change and I couldn’t be happier for her. Our week together was bittersweet; Reminiscing over old pictures and fond memories while building new memories, all while knowing it would be our last time bonding in our “family home”. Surrounded by family and friends we said goodbye, and through the sadness emerged much joy for what lies ahead.
Williamsburg Country Market
I attended in Williamsburg for the Country market twice this month and have had two incredible experiences.
Getting to know fellow vendors, talented artisans and the Williamsburg community has been a joyful blessing. I look forward to the upcoming Williamsburg Country Market taking place this Sunday, June 5th, on World Environment Day. If you are in the Ottawa area with no plans for this Sunday, I encourage you to partake in a short road trip to this quant town and support local business owners and designers. Whether or not a business has a sustainable specific product or brand, shopping local reduces global waste and emissions associated with mass production and international trade that is not fair. Your support goes a long way in changing the retail industry.
I want to send a huge thank you to Valerie Devine et al for all of the time and dedication given for the ongoing success of all vendors and the Williamsburg Country Market itself. I am grateful that you have invited me to participate and continue to welcome me back.
You will find us at Jay’s Tire and Repair Shop Parking Lot, conveniently located on the main drag in Williamsburg, Ontario.
In-Home VIP Shopping Parties
I don't know about you but for me, the May Long Weekend always serves as a reminder that another summer is FINALLY upon us!
This year, I had the privilege of spending the May Long Weekend in Mississauga, Ontario where I conducted our first VIP Exclusive Home shopping Party. Despite an unexpected storm, which, for many, was more severe than most May Long Weekend storms, it was a superb road trip. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting some incredible women who were ready to shop chic Boho fashion for the summer season.
If you are in the Ottawa area, Gatineau or the GTA and resonate with the care-free Boho lifestyle, with a free-spirited wardrobe to match, simply grab your girls and a bottle of wine and contact me to schedule a date and time for your custom VIP in home shopping experience.
Enjoy the luxury of a girl’s day, or evening, in, avoiding store crowds, shipping delays and the general uncertainties of online shopping. Bohemian Beach Boutique will come directly to you so that you can take your time to enjoy, browse, touch and try before you buy. I will be on site to directly answer any questions that you have about our products, and recommend different styling options to suit the individual personalities of you and your guests
Simply email email@example.com for more details.
I began this Newsletter by sharing with you that family is one of my top core values.
Another one of my core values is giving back to my community and making charitable contributions to causes near and dear to my heart. For me, this includes progression with animal rights, female empowerment and youth programs. I am thrilled and honored to report that Bohemian Beach Boutique has been collaborating with a fabulous not-for-profit organization located in Ontario. This organization is dedicated to empowering and supporting young girls and women locally and in Nigeria to ensure that every girl has the opportunity to live, learn and grow FREELY. Starting in July, Bohemian Beach Boutique will be donating 5% of all purchases to this organization in order to help young girls around the world Thrive so they too can give back and empower girls and women in their communities. This means that your favourite body lovin’ Boho styles will not only unleash your confidence, but will help empower and free others.
The formal announcement and specific details will be dropping in to your inbox soon so please stay connected.

Sharing my Story
For as long as I can remember, I have been an avid reader and writer who enjoys sharing stories and my point of view with those closest to me.
I am thrilled to announce that I have recently signed-up with Action Takers Publishing to go one step further and share my stories with the World.
As a child, often I considered writing fiction when I grew up, but I am now going to be sharing, in detail, some of what I have overcome to follow my heart and pursue my dreams. I will be collaborating with other women who are sharing their stories of Overcoming, so that together, we can empower many! Dreams aren't achieved overnight, but they are fulfilled when you relentlessly believe and chase, despite the odds. To say I am excited to be drafting a chapter that will become my first EVER professionally published work is an understatement. More so, I feel the utmost joy, knowing that my story will be bound together with impactful stories of other women who have overcome, and, together, our stories will change the world for even just one inspired reader. That is what I consider beautiful+UNCONVENTIONAL!
Well, that's a wrap for May...
It has been a heartwarming month and I am grateful for all of the opportunities to connect and reconnect with friends and family and to share my story for the World to see. With that, I say, its time to bring on the summer adventures!
Please know that I am incredibly grateful for YOU and this growing Tribe of empowered women. I look forward to sharing future goals, triumphs and hardships as this small business continues to grow.
