TheWIFTS Come To Toronto

It’s that time of year again, The Women's International Film and Television Showcase (TheWIFTS) is back, and for 1 year only they will be in Toronto, Canada! This year, Elizabeth Grant International Inc., is pleased to be hosting this inspirational event. Elizabeth Grant herself has been bestowed the honor of presenting awards to a number of rewarding recipients.

TheWIFTS is an outstanding organization that honours well-deserving women of any field or profession. In doing so, women are motivated and empowered to continue their outstanding work which benefits all of us, beyond our reach. Additionally, the work done by these women encourages younger generations of women to work toward their goals, dreams and strive for what they wish to accomplish in changing the world around them. Mama Hill’s Help is an exceptional example of these extraordinary efforts. Mama Hill’s Help is known by everyone in the community as a “safe haven.” Their efforts promote education, reduce gang violence, and strengthen families in South Los Angeles.   
Elizabeth Grant’s granddaughter Margot Grant Witz, VP Creative Global Director and marketing genius at Elizabeth Grant International Inc., has been granted this years TheWIFTS Foundation "IT" Award. Margot’s uncanny success in revamping the Elizabeth Grant Skin Care image and for her generosity in a number of charity initiatives has made her a perfect recipient for this years “IT” factor award.

Movember is coming to a close. I don’t know about you, but all of my Mo bros have turned their baby faces into full on man-staches in support of prostate cancer awareness research!

It is a sad statistic that everyone knows someone affected by cancer. That is why I think it is so important to remember that Cancer is a cause that should be recognized all year around. We can always raise more support and awareness for cancer research. What are you doing for Movember!? Send us a picture of your completed Mo Bros Stache and help spread the love.

During November, Elizabeth Grant Skin Care will be supporting Movember – an annual, month-long fundraising campaign where thousands of men sport moustaches on their faces to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer – the number one male cancer.

To support Movember and Prostate Cancer Canada, 20% of elizabethgrant.com web sale proceeds of the Grant For Men After Shave will be donated to the cause.

Once Movember comes to an end, here are products from Elizabeth Grant’s Grant For Men line that will help you tame, shave and smooth out your skin post ‘stache:

Favorite Winter Fashions: Brown Leather Bags

It is starting to get cold outside, and while it pains me to put away my lively mini floral print clutch, I’m happy to make the transition. With fall comes new boots, new coat and best of all new bags! This fall Its all about chic yet practical leather bags. Bold leather, colour blocking and my favorite fall item, The Saddle Bag. These bold leather numbers are super-cute for a night out with a little black dress and amazing boots, or perfect with dark casual jeans and a blazer during the day. I always have a staple bag that looks great with my winter jacket, however reaching out and finding a bag that is as colourful and bold as you are can be used to add that little bit extra to anything else you wear this season.
