50 Shades of Vain | The Vanity Events

13 Aug

50 Shades of Vain Collage 3On August 3, 2013, I got sexy and vain at a fabulous and fun event by The Vanity Events called “50 Shades of Vain”. How appropriate! Held at Berlin Nightclub in Vaughan, the venue was perfect for this event as it featured a burlesque bar like new look and a gorgeous patio. This ladies only event encouraged us to enjoy in the little pleasures we love most; such as decadent chocolate sampling, delicious wine, sexy treats, massages and much more!

50 Shades of Vain Collage 1The very sweet Eliza Sipin and Karen Viray, owners of The Vanity Events, treated us to my very own booth at the event; which had very special treats for my guests and I. My very good friend, Theresa TK, joined me at the event along with the lovely Sandy T. and Bisma Bhatti.  We ladies had a very fun time which included our very own red and white wine bottles of STLTO Wine (which I fell in love with!), a delicious 3 dip appetizer from Berlin Nightclub and exclusive VIP bags. We could not have asked for a better girl’s night out! The fun continued when we got our makeup touched up by Sicilianna Beauty, hand massages from BMK, wine sampling from STLTO Wine, tanning demos by Tan on the Run, sexy treats from The Stag Shop, and chocolate tasting from Succulent Chocolates. The chocolates really caught my attention since one of their samples was a dark chocolate from Peru – how could I not indulge in the chocolate of my people?! (In case you didn’t know…I was born in Peru!).

50 Shades of Vain Collage 2Elevate Magazine was the publication sponsor for 50 Shades of Vain which also featured sexy advice from sexologists Dr. Jessica O’Reilly and Dr.  Stephen de Wit. After all, a lady can never be too educated and informed when it comes to sexual health!

We got a chance to speak with Sarah Liberatore, Founder and Marketing Director of STLTO Wine, who gave us some insight on her company and winery; which we were delighted to find out is run by an all women team. We spoke about wine pairing and how wine compliments various tastes ranging from chocolate to heels (Yes, heels!). We tasted the STLTO Malbec Merlot, STLTO Unoaked Chardonnay and the STLTO Pinot Grigio. We loved them all! But my fave definitely was the Malbec Merlot as I am more of a red wine kind of gal!

50 Shades of Vain was a fabulous event which created an excellent atmosphere to mingle with the girls and celebrate our vanity, confidence and sexyness! After all, every woman is sexy and vain in her own way!

With Love,
Christie

Shop for Jayu’s Green Carpet Fresh Collection Launch

7 Aug

SFJ Green Carpet Fresh Collection Launch

As many of my friends know, I have a soft spot for Shop for Jayu’s designs so I could NOT miss this event! I was very excited to browse and shop their latest Fresh Collection on the day of their launch.

The lovely Sally Han, founder and designer for Shop for Jayu, gave us a warm welcome on July 27, 2013 as we walked in to The Gladstone Hotel; which was decorated with a green carpet at the entrance to set the mood. The vibrant venue and layout truly brought the new collection to life! The new designs are a new look for Shop for Jayu, containing pieces which include vibrant colours, that can be worn on an everyday basis or can be dressed up for a night out look.


As I browsed through the new collection, I felt like a child in a candy store. I could not get enough and it was way to difficult to pick which designs I was going to take home with me.  I usually opt for the pieces with a bit of an edge to them since that is my personal style; girly with SFJ Fresh Launch Collage 3an edge. One of the pieces that caught my eye was a single spike pendant with a rhinestone at the head of the spike. It was hard to pick between gold, silver or copper; but I finally opted for the gold. The exact name of this design is Aislin Gold. Next I browsed around the rings, which were absolutely adorable! I decided to take home the Spike Opening Ring in Gold, the Sailor Ring in Silver, and the Snake Wrap Around Ring. Don’t for a second think I forgot about their fab bracelets…cause I didn’t! I got the Arrow Bracelet in Silver. These are just some of the designs available that day so I, of course, snapped a few more so you can get a better idea of what the new collection features.

Of course, no Shop For Jayu pop-up shop is completely if treats aren’t present! they had an adorable old style pop corn machine set up so that you can enjoy a snack while you experience the new Fresh Collection. Another wonderful perk about this event is that we got to experience Bio Seaweed Gel for the first time! The girls were lovely and so was the polish! I promise to tell you more about it in an upcoming post. It is definitely worth a try!

I hope to see you at the next Shop for Jayu pop-up shop! Keep in mind that if you shop at these events you can save 15% off purchases with their social media discount – all you have to do is like them on Facebook or Instagram, or follow them on Twitter!

Nine Beauty Lounge Launch

1 Aug

As women, we are constantly reminded how essential volume filled, long and fluttery eyelashes are to our beauty. Whether we flip through a magazine or watch TV, mascara commercials are truly inevitable.

Which one is going to make our lashes look the longest?
Which one is going to give us the most volume?
Which one is the most waterproof?

How blissful would it be if we could completely ignore those advertisements without thinking about whether that product might work for us better than the one we are trying now?

If you are on the same page as I am on this topic, I may just have the solution for you!

On Friday, July 26th, I was invited to attend the launch of Nine Beauty Lounge. They are a chic salon, located in the Port Credit area of Mississauga, that specializes in eyelash and hair extensions.

Nine Beauty Lounge Collage 1At first impression, I was quite impressed with the detail they had paid to the branding of their salon and to their overall look; from decor to their business cards. I must add, that I loved the idea of their wet bar!

The owner, Shellyza, who I was meeting for the first time, was a very welcoming and professional individual. Of course, she was VERY excited about the launch of her salon and the event. I would be too!

So here is the part where we get to the solution I mentioned I had for you!

Nine Beauty Lounge has eyelash extension services which can leave you giggling at your silly past of trying to find the best mascara. The eyelash experts can help you narrow down which type of lashes are best for you and what styles are best; depending on what look you are going for. Some of us may want a more natural look, while others may want to go for a more glam look. If you have any general questions about eyelash extension, or if this is a new idea for you, they may be addressed here.

I have gotten eyelash extension in the past and I loved them! The greatest thing about them, that I found, was all the time I saved when it came to getting ready; whether it was to head to the office or go out with friends. It was as easy as adding some colour to your cheeks, lipgloss and I was ready to go! As I’m sure you can tell, it won’t take much for me to make an appointment at Nine Beauty Lounge. I am really looking forward to it!

Wondering what the cost would be to getting your eyelashes done at Nine Beauty Lounge? I know you are. I definitely did, since that is something I take into consideration with all the services I try or get regularly.  See the pricing below:

P1020483
Their full lounge menu can also be found here. Keep in mind that after you get the first set done, the refill price is lower and, as mentioned on their website, you can go on average about 2 to 3 weeks until you need the next refill. Yet as you gain more experience maintaining your lashes, you may be able to extend that time period between refills.
