Seattle-based businesswomen Chieko Watanabe, Michelle Babb, Karen Pfeiffer Bush, and Wendy Lomme are something of a powerful girl band. Their professions are, respectively: business and life coach, MS/RD/nutritionist, professional organizer and home stager, and landscape designer. And now, they’re all adding “author” to that list.

The group just published The Imperfect Perfectionist: Seasonal Secrets for a Happy Balanced Life. In it, each pro contributes tips, tricks, and personal stories—from healthy eating advice to gardening techniques—for rounding out your life in every quarter. Some of our favorite snippets being “5 Ways to Fall in Love with Beets” and a chapter titled “Planned Spontaneity.”

To celebrate the new book, the gals are hosting a brunch launch party this Saturday, April 18 at the Seattle Tennis Club. Meet the authors, sip mimosas, and ask about spring cleaning your junk drawer (just me?).

Tickets include brunch with drinks, a copy of the book, surprise giveaways, and a panel discussion with the crew. Bonus: Wendy Petersen of Style by Wendy will be there showing off spring fashion and offering makeover tips, and Tracy Klinkroth of ChickChat is coming to provide help with networking tools for women.

Extra bonus: A portion of ticket sales benefit Justice and Soul, a nonprofit dedicated to preventing sex trafficking around the world.

Doors open at 11. Tickets are $45 and available via EventBrite.
