Tuesday was a big day for us at LaineyGossip as we celebrated the release of Duana’s first book, The Name Therapist!

From Duana:

Tuesday night I got to celebrate “The Name Therapist” with my friends and family and all the people who made it happen, including so many people who inspired the stories in the book themselves. Everybody has a story about their name. Everyone has ideas about how the name makes the woman or man. . So many more of them came out just last night…a night where Lainey reminded me “you take pictures while the makeup is fresh”…a lesson I’m trying to remember!

The book is on sale in stores and online across Canada and we are coming for you, United States – “The Name Therapist” will arrive in just a few weeks! I’ll keep you posted and can’t thank you enough for wanting to read it! Check out the pictures below and think…what’s your story?

To help us commemorate the occasion, vitaminwater was on hand at her launch party.

In addition to celebrating the launch of The Name Therapist, we’re also celebrating the launch of the newest vitaminwater flavour: watermelon pink grapefruit called shine and zero calorie shine zero (sweetened with a stevia blend). As you know, I write the stories on all the zero calorie vitaminwater flavours and here’s the latest:

It’s available in a full calorie version sweetened with cane sugar and a zero calorie version sweetened with a stevia blend. Electrolyte enhanced. No artificial flavours or colours. And an excellent source of vitamin D and a source of calcium. Did you know that Canadians tend to not get enough vitamin D, and it helps in the absorption of calcium?

vitaminwater’s think+drink+do is all about supporting people as they do more of the things they’d rather be doing. This is rooted in their own start-up history as pioneers of delicious hydration with the added bonus of vitamins and nutrients. Few people I know have more think+do than Duana. And vitaminwater knows this too. So much so that they invited her to write her own special edition label for her favourite flavour: multi-v (lemonade, vitamins b-zinc). Check it out here:

This is not available in stores or anywhere else but here, so we want to share this with you. Penguin Random House Canada has provided ten signed copies of The Name Therapist, and we’d like to send ten of you a copy along with a special edition bottle of multi-v and a case of new vitaminwater shine and shine zero. If you’re interested in entering the draw, tweet @vitaminwater_ca using the hashtag #NameTherapist. We’ll draw randomly from the entries received before EOD (PT) Friday, April 8th.  Standard contest terms apply. Good luck and think+drink+do!
