Toronto Social Media Workshop

Random Acts of Pastel and Bicyclette Boutique are always dreaming up new adventures, and social media is a massive part of what we do on a daily basis. We love snapping Instagram photos and updating our Pinterest feeds, and over the past few months we’ve worked together to grow our brands, both on the personal blogging front, and the business promotion front. After a lot of giddy discussion, we decided we wanted to share our knowledge about this fun way to promote yourself with, well, all of you. In case you haven’t guessed already, we’re doing our first Social Media Workshop right here in Toronto!

As small business owners, freelancers, creatives, and makers, we use social media tools on a daily basis to share what we’re up to and communicate with our followers. It’s a way for us to connect, to offer a peek behind the scenes, and share our personal style and aesthetic, which in turn helps build a brand- all the while inspiring ourselves and others through the process of doing so.


Each different platform holds value in its own way, and when you bring all of them together to build a cohesive online presence, you’ll really start to see them working for you. Because social media varies so much from person to person, It’s really about finding the balance that works best for you and allows you to be authentic and genuine, while still getting your brand out there.

We’ll be offering a 2 hour seminar led by Alyssa (Random Acts of Pastel) and Paige (Bicyclette Boutique) early next month that goes over each of these platforms and provides tips and tools to manage each one effectively to make them work for you and/or your business, all while establishing your brand in the online world.

We will be covering pre-planned key topics and points, but we also want the workshop to feel collaborative and open, so we invite you to bring any specific questions you may have with you, and we’ll be sure to cover them through discussion. We’ll also be offering scones and jam from Kitten and the Bear and Sloane Tea, a photo booth where you can get your ‘gram on, and special swag bags with all sorts of amazing surprise goodies! Please note, tickets are non-refundable.

  • hi there! i actually am doing the social media for a luxury fragrance brand that is all about traveling and using the fragrances for “on the go” in roll-on, travel spray, and fragrance wipes forms. I’m having issues myself, being that I live in a completely different part of the country (they are based in NYC), of getting good quality photos that are relevant their branding. I live in a very non-urban non-chic place (think portland, oregon) where i’m mostly surrounded by mountains, rivers, and hippies (and to be completely honest, I can’t necessarily relate to that lifestyle either as i’m a very simple person who doesn’t really do much shopping) ;-). Also, I don’t have a creative budget at all, and it would mostly come out of my expenses to purchase any photo props. AND, i live in a tiny apartment that doesn’t really have any opportunities for cool background shots. sorry, i would go to your workshop but i live in the south in the u.s. any ideas or suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. I LOVE your instagram account and the photos you take!

    • Hi Nicole! We may look into live-streaming or taping the workshop so folks who live out of town can buy a session 🙂 I’ll keep you posted!

  • Hi Alyssa!

    I’d love to attend the workshop, and tried signing up using the form you’ve provided. Unfortunately, it’s not working for me. Is there any other method for registering? In the mean time, I’ll continue trying.
