Standing in Secret Location, the coolest retail/restaurant concept store in
 Vancouver, I was able to catch a glimpse of THE Man Repeller herself.   
Waiting in line to meet her, I contemplated what I'd say to Leandra, the loveable blog 
celebrity from NYC.  Surrounded by some of this city's most fashionable, I 
was sure they'd already asked all the great questions.  And I kicked myself 
for never taking any journalism courses, as interview skills
 would sure come in handy at moments like these. I decided that I'd meet The Man 
Repeller with no plan at all, except to just be my weird self.  And so, that's what I did.  I'm
 not even sure what exactly was said, but we did a bit, complete with impressions and
 funny voices, had a good laugh, and then took a few photos.

Leandra was exactly how I thought she'd be and even sweeter.  I'm so glad

she came to Vancouver and that I had the honour of meeting her.  Thanks so much
to my dates for the evening Miss Melissa and Style Without Bordersto Secret Location
 for having such a great event, and to The Man Repeller for laughing at my jokes!
