I attended the fantastic Emmy’s 2010 DPA Gifting Suite organized by the talented Nathalie DuBois-Sissoko. It was a lovely summer day in Los Angeles and the gifting suite was outside on the patio of the Argyle Salon & Spa on Sunset Boulevard. Stars attending the Emmy Awards were pampered and gifted with the newest in luxury, fashion, beauty and food.
I started with a wonderful shoulder massage from The Massage Express , a traveling masseuse for any occasion and event. Then I had a bit of wonderful tea at Kusmi Tea, a company out of Paris that originated in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1867. Kusmi Tea comes in a variety of high-quality flavors packed as teabags or loose teas. I really love the beautiful tin packaging, too. Yummy crepes were provided by Crepes Sans Frontieres, a mobile crepe maker available for any event. I overdosed on Nutella crepes because they were so so good.
After I wiped the chocolate off my mouth, I made my way around the suite and checked out beautiful, vintage-inspire jewelry by RGK D’Zines, a clean, sweet-scented perfume by Jus D’Amour Parfums, handbags by Paola Graglia, trendy and chic yoga-wear by Delano Wear, beautiful bracelets by SwedArt embellished with pearls and buttons made from reindeer antlers. SwedArt gave me one in a what else, but … Pink!
My favorite panda, Lil Panda, was also at DPA’s gifting suite. I did a post a few weeks ago on the adorable panda known as Lil Panda. Stylish and hip dresses in slinky fabrics and colorful designs by Eva Varro were gifted to the stars. I chose a Monet-like tunic that I can see myself wearing on a beach or during a day of shopping. Gorgeous couture gowns were offered to the Emmy nominees by Nina Skarra. Each gown had incredible detailing regarding the cut and style of the dress.
Chiaya showed their new line of versatile wraps that can go from the beach to a night out. ChewyLou provided fun yoga-wear with inspiring words, like ‘hope’ and ‘give’. Designer sunglasses were gifted by Marchon. A new character called Jizo and Chibi was unveiled at the suite featuring jewelry, hats, and even a children’s book called “Why A Fly?”. Timree Art showed their whimsical art on ceramic plates, bowls and canvas- all customized to you and your taste. They will even paint your soiree down to the detail of each guest so you can remember it forever and ever!
Luxury beauty line Natura Bisse gave away beauty products.The Argyle Salon & Spa offered their Brazilian Blowout favored by celebrities to all the nominees of the Emmy’s. It is a revolutionary lasting hair treatment that smooths your hair and makes it full and healthy. A entire line of Brazilian Blowout products were gifted. A fragrant and unusual candle was offered by Milena’s Boutique. It is an all-natural soy candle in different scents (my favorite is White Jasmine) that when melted can also be used as a moisturizer. It smells so amazing!
Several lucky stars received the DPA staple, a luxurious vacation at Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa. I wound down with a refreshing Steaz drink, a variety of flavors made with natural ingredients and green tea, and a scrumptious Millie’s Cheesecakes, hand-crafted, gourmet cheesecake bites in several wonderful flavors, like lemon. Luckily, they deliver nationwide for cheesecake fans. Speaking of delivery, Wholesome2go delivers healthy, organic foods in the Los Angeles area right to your door.
Also, included in the gift bags were Coca-Cola products, SmartWater, a DVD of Food Matters, and others.
It was a wonderful day at DPA’s gifting suite. Award season has officially begun! Until next time…
PS- Here is a video that I shot of the suite.
