A Contest!!!


I would first like you give Kathy a shout-out…. She has been amazing with this blog, and has truly livened it up with her humor, intelligence and her outlook on life. Kendra and I love love love her writing! Kendra is doing well with baby Marcus, and is officially able to get out of her place from time to time… which is REALLY good because she was going a little stir-crazy. I am done on the Ville. I had a wonderful few months and will miss many of my Smallville peeps dearly.

So…. during this holiday lull, we are throwing out a really exciting contest for all teen girls from 13-17 in the L.A. area. If you are NOT in L.A. but are willing to get yourself there, that is fine too. A newsletter saying the exact same thing will be going out tonight or tomorrow… If you have questions just comment them, or e-mail them. If there are FAQs, I will post the answers before I leave on the 25th. Here are the details:


TIMEOUT RETREAT and GIRLS BY DESIGN partner for this unique retreat sponsored by Warner Springs Ranch in Temecula, California.

TIMEOUT FOR TEENS is an overnight holistic retreat for teen girls where they will have the opportunity to attend rotations designed to empower them to have access to tools to achieve balance in their lives.
There will be an evening event introducing young female celebrities who will attend as speakers for the evening as well as mentors. Retreat is opened to all girls aged 13-17 in the Los Angeles area.

  18. jessica f Says:

    hey just a suggestion, are there any volunteer opportunities for us older GBD-er gals to more involved with the workshop? I’m pretty sure some of us are around Kristin’s age (me 🙂 ) or younger that would love to get the chance to help out. just wondering!

  19. jessica f Says:

  20. taylor nikole Says:

    happy holidays and merry xmas to you too jessicaaa!

  21. Kathy Says:

    I am now deaf from your shout-out.  Thank you. 😉
    And I’m going to jump on jessica f’s bandwagon and wish you a “Happy way early bday” as well.  I’m not sure if we’re talking like a December birthday here or a July birthday or what, but I figured I should cover my bases just in case.

    Best of luck to everyone who decides it sure would be nice to chill in Cali for a couple days.  🙂

  22. G Says:

    Well, don’t I just feel like an old Canadian cow 😛

  23. jessica f Says:

    HAHA lol Kathy, you’re super funny! 🙂 Cali weather is pretty nice, but I would LOVE to live in NY. Thanks for the shout-out Tay! Kristin’s bday is next Tuesday I believe (12/30). Yay go 1982 babies! haha!

  24. taylor nikole Says:

  25. Gina Says:

    I can definitely pass for looking 17! That’s too bad though. Good luck to everyone else!

    Hehe, Santa Monica Blvd, I used to hang out around there.

  26. kristina Says:

    And now it suddenly sucks to be living in Texas!

  27. Auntie Kailin Says:

    You mean most of us regulars on GBD are not in the demographics? I’m not the only Auntie around, I guess, meaning older, wiser woman. At least Kristin was so sweet to say I’m “young lady Sparklesoup” in the newsletter. Thank you, Kristin! I don’t feel so old right now. Glad you and Kendra pick CA, too. We do have the most creative teens around…just ask Taylor Nikole!

  28. taylor nikole Says:

    haha i know i saw that
    I’m like the only one so far on This blog entry
    who is in location to attend
    or in the age range

    and binks
    should do it with me
    but nooooooo

    hahah thanks auntie kailin LOL

  29. Auntie Kailin Says:

    Binks should definitely go for it, too! This is a great workshop to extend your creativity and to learn from some top-notch mentors. Seize the Day!

  30. Kathy Says:

    “Glad you and Kendra pick CA, too. We do have the most creative teens around.” – Auntie Kailin

  33. jessicaf Says:

    although its really not

  40. *dacara* Says:

    I was so excited when I first heard about this, but I’m also not in the age range for the contest. I would LOVE to be able to help out at this workshop if there would be any way to do that.

  41. Auntie Kailin Says:

    I’m telling my teen nieces about this contest, but is this open for those teens already working in their chosen professions? One of my teen nieces starred in a long-running tv series so…not sure if she qualifies. She’s now 16 and lives in Los Angeles.
