Had a great time at the Celebrity Connected 2017 Luxury Gifting Suite Honoring The Academy Awards® at the Millennium Biltmore downtown. Ever the foodie, I was excited to try all the treats such as Nu-Health Fruit, Gourmet Inspirations Salted Carmel Whiskey spread, Twizzles Tasty Treats (my favorite flavor thus far is peanut butter), Route 66’s Root Beer, Gorp Clean Energy Bars, Ricos Nachos on the Go, Something Sweet’s by Maddie Lu’s chocolate chip sweet edible cookie dough, Vegan Noms (my favorite was the brownie variety), Ohana’s Cupcakes (especially the lemon flavor), Sorelle and Co’s sweets, Kung Fu Tea (the Mango flavor), Hemp Kitchen, Vital Wines, Provincial Vodka, Phure Water, Matcha Konomi, and Souley Vegan (Vegan Nuggets).
Last but certainly not least, were Collettey’s Cookies. I saw Collette’s story in the news and I truly found her to be so inspiring. Born with Downs Syndrome, Collette didn’t let that get in the way of her business. Ironically, Colette couldn’t get a job, so she created her own company and has not let her disability get in the way.
Though I have hair (everywhere!), Top Knot Extensions looks really cool, My Real Earth Products, System 02:19, Sand and Stone Handmade Jewelry, Villa Sorgenfrei jewelry, Dome Beauty products, Glo Drinks, Kader Boot Co’s cute boots, Vision Haircare from Sweden (gotta love hair care products from the Swedes!), Kiss My Butter (love their red carpet scent perfume), Elyptol antimicrobial hand gel,Freeman Jewelry Collection, Letter Craft kitschy celeb pins and magnets, Oke Swimwear, Booty Perfect, In the Weeds Natural Skincare, and Bella-Maree Natural Dog Products. The ladies from Balm Skincare lost their mom to environmental hazards, so they made it their lives’ work to create healthy skincare.
Additional products/companies were Quick Shoelace, Watch Ya’ Mouth, i stay safe, Kalayaan, Rla Collective, Global Imagination, 13 1 Modern Sportswear, Maximum Human Performance, The Real Man Company, The Fairy Door Store, NV Holders, Burn Hot Sauce, Bliss Edibles and Pure Hemp Technology. There were great charities there as well such as Feed A Billion, Barbells for Boobs, and Hello Gorgeous!
