Each Wednesday one of us will be posting about Wicked Women or more popularly known as our Women Crush Wednesday (WCW).
I’m up first and these days my WCW is Roxy Earle.
If you don’t know her, can I suggest: get to know her!
She’s a Torontonian, body positivity activist and a lover of everything fabulous.
Roxy looking Glam. (Is there any other kind of Roxy?)
Roxy, please excuse me borrowing the photographs!
I started following Roxy when I saw her on Real Housewives of Toronto. What I admired first was how articulate she was in a conflict. During the show, Roxy was “confronted” (I put confronted in quotes because when it fell flat due to Roxy’s eloquent response, the anticipated confrontation fizzled), by a fellow housewife who decided she was going to educate and scold Roxy. Roxy responded respectfully and maturely – and she shut it down!
Maybe I pay special attention to that given my profession, but when somebody can say precisely what they intend to say in the face of someone yelling at them, I say bravo.
Following on that, I watched Roxy with interest and when she turned her experience and new fame into a body positivity movement, the WCW was solidified.
Add to that her profound love of her dog, Lola, and she got me. If only I could treat Q to the kind of pampering her pooch gets.
What dog doesn’t need her nails did?
And, these shirts! The cutest, Am I right?
I follow Roxy on instagram and can say that she regularly gets her glam squad to prep her for her big days out on the town.
I had an event in Toronto last month and tried to book the same glam squad: Fancy Face, but they were all booked up Next time Fancy Face, next time! What I love, is that they come to your house as you get ready there. Such luxury.
Now if you weren’t convinced already, you should know she also loves her current hometown Toronto. Although we are based on Ottawa, I totally respect the Canadian pride. Plus my head office is in Toronto and looks out on a similar beautiful view.
Roxy, I look forward to seeing what everyday adventures you go on next.
