This month, we are honoured to feature our the amazing Shandi Shwartz, owner of Strut Footwear and Apparel in Kelowna, BC as our Girlfriend of the Month!


We asked Shandi to share some of her best advice and wisdom with us that she has learned over the years. Make sure to go follow Strut Footwear and Apparel at @strutfootwear on Instagram!

Here are her answers:

I love how friendly all the staff are every time I come in; it is such a welcoming and clean space. The brow artists really listen to what I would like done and work with precision and care every step of the way. My brows always look great and I love that each treatment finishes with the coconut massage; it is heaven.

Definitely my Mom. She taught me how to work hard, love people, and give back to our community. Her work in the non-profit world has helped change the lives of thousands of women and children. She is truly an inspiration.
