      Thank you everyone for your kind comments!
      Although we did not win the Best Media Editorial Award this year..we were in the Top 3 Finalists and that in itself is a big achievement.

      I did not win the Lifetime Achievement Award - that honour was justly deserved by famed Canadian Beauty Maven, Lise Watier.

      Grant and I would like to thank you for your kind comments - it means a lot to us!

      Many thanks again,
      Marian Bendeth
