Raw, Organic and Cold-Pressed Juice. Why we LOVE it and you will too!

You may or may not know, but recently Wild and Heart moved out of the city and up to beautiful Squamish, BC to open our first brick and mortar store. Being the nature enthusiasts that we are the transition was easy, and Squamish seemingly welcomed us with open arms. Squamish is a small town located just 45 minutes outside of Vancouver, BC and nestled in between the mountains and the ocean. It was a couple months after we opened that we stumbled upon this to die for Cold-Pressed Juicery in North Vancouver, The Juicery Co. It was LOVE at first sip! Living a healthy and balanced (and fashionable) lifestyle is something that is very important to us, so partnering with The Juicery Co was a natural fit for us. We want to be able to offer our customers an alternative to pre-packaged grocery store juices that were currently only available in our town.
Not only is cold-pressed organic juice delicious, but it is extremely nutritious! ‘The cold-pressed juicing procress allows each juice to maintain its maximum nutrient and vitamin retention, and allows you to get a concentrated amount of live enzymes that would otherwise be difficult to achieve just be eating raw fruits and vegetables along.’ For more info on our juice please visit us in store 38036 Cleveland Avenue, Squamish and/or The Juicery Co in North Vancouver.
We will be restocking the Juice weekly and maybe even bi-weekly, you can check out our Facebook page and/or Instragram to find out when we will be restocking so as not to miss out! This juice sells fast and can last up to 3 to 4 days in your fridge at home! Enjoy! xx

Festival Fashion Show

A couple weeks back, we had our first Fashion Show as apart of the Refresh Market. It was stressful and wonderful all at the same time. Countless extra hours were put in during the weeks leading up to the event. We hand crafted the backdrop (pictured above) and this was no simple task. We wanted it to feel very bohemian and gypsy, like the models were walking out of a dream catcher! 

We were so lucky to get the models we did for the show; Maggie Heilig, Julia Olsen, Alison Hutchinson, Randa Salloum, and Tatum Monod. Each of them rocked it in their own way, they were all rookies when it came to walking the runway but you never would have known! Thank you ladies! xx

Next, huge thanks to all the other vendors involved that donated some of their lovely designs to the show and were involved behind the scenes; Sasha Eillenna Jewelry, Soul Stems, Billies Flower House, Devlin Salon, Sea to Sky Nails and Lashes, Rebecca Amber Photography, and everyone who else participated in the event.

Lastly, thank you Rachel and Shannon (event hosts) for inviting us. We have always wanted to put on a fashion show and this was the perfect way for us to do it, and be involved in the community! 

Below are some behind the scene images and fashion show pictures in case you weren't able to make it to the event!!
