Support Save Our Scruff at PYA Importer’s Sample Sale: May 7-9

Posted on

Although it’s really no surprise to anyone…here at NKPR, we’re all about the puppy love! Few things warm our hearts more than a fluffy, cuddly kiss from a puppy (and that “new puppy” smell – don’t even get us started!). This weekend, we’re shopping an amazing cause in support of our favourite furry friends.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas – For Him & Her

Posted on

Ah, Valentine’s Day…that day of the year we’re reminded that love is special and most definitely worth celebrating. We’ve all seen our fair share of overly sized teddy bears, obnoxiously large boxes of chocolate, and instantly forgotten knick-knacks (cue eye rolls now…).

This year, we’ve decided to opt for the “wow” factor. To give that special someone something that shows you’re really thinking of them and something that shows you care beyond those typical cliché gifts.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite products that will make this Valentine’s Day your best one yet…

For Her:

Celebrating 10 Years of NKPR

Posted on

“Sometimes the little things you don’t think are anything while they’re happening turn out to be what marks a whole period of your life.” – Andy Warhol

When choosing a quote to encapsulate the past ten years, I think Andy Warhol said it best. All of the little moments throughout the years have really defined NKPR and who we are!

On Wednesday night, I had the amazing opportunity to celebrate a decade of my life and business with some of my closest friends, incredible staff and inspiring clients.

The theme of the night was “Love & Candy”, and I have to say, you could really feel the love! Although we had over 250 guests, the atmosphere felt intimate. Looking around my backyard was like looking into an NKPR time capsule. Everyone that attended has made NKPR into what it is today and impacted my life in so many ways.

As for the candy portion of the night, my favourite store Petite & Sweet – now featured on the Food Network’s “Sugar Stars” – created a stunning sweet table for the event. Not only did it feature some amazing treats like brownies, cupcakes, chocolate and candy, it also displayed my favourite quotes about love, written in chalk above the sweets. The table was the focal point of the party and Petite & Sweet did an amazing job of capturing the theme!

“Love doesn’t make the world go ‘round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” – Franklin P. Jones

After such a special night, I want to take this opportunity to truly thank all of the people who have been present throughout the past 10 years, particularly my dedicated staff. You exceed my expectations and inspire me daily.  All of our little (and big) moments together have really marked a period in my life and made NKPR exceptional!

I believe that true success in life, is being surrounded by people you love, that also love you back. At the end of the evening, I crawled into bed after marking this 10- year milestone and felt an incredible sense of happiness, peace and achievement because of the amazing people I know and love.

Thank you for all of your support!
