It was pure girl power this month for a couple of big reasons. First, the beautiful ladies at Expert Recruiters hosted a private showing of “Confessions of a Shopaholic” at the Scotiabank Theatre to launch their new designer handbag rental venture called “It’s Your Secret”. Next, the Women in Film and Television Vancouver (WIFTV) toasted their own during their gala film festival which honoured achievement among their peers.
