(Covet & Crave / Westshore Town Centre)

In light of all that’s happening in the world, we think you deserve to treat yourself to some serious self-care; and luckily, Westshore Town Centre has everything you need (and then some!) to indulge in the perfect virtual day of fun.

On November 29th, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. via Zoom, Covet & Crave will deliver a day filled with workshops on everything from food and fashion to beauty and décor. All designed to pamper, inspire AND entertain.. in the safest way possible!

Event tickets are complimentary, and you can grab yours online today, but it gets even better!

The first 100 guests to register will receive a complimentary digital portrait – using a selfie you provide – created by Lauren of Lovely Lolo Creative. Bonus, all portraits will be used to create a future art installation at Westshore Town Centre. ⁠

It’s completely free to follow along with your friends for the day, but if you want to partake in the “make and bake” portions of Covet & Crave, you can grab yourself the Playdate Pack. ⁠

The Playdate Pack is only $20, and you’ll get a box of goodies (valued at over $150!) to make your day extra special, including:
