Loose Button's Summer Trends 2012 Event

On Wednesday May 16th, I found myself outside of 720 King Street West. A beautiful building right in downtown Toronto. This is where Loose Button held their Summer Trends 2012 Event... and I was going! Thanks to my fantastic best friend Aleeza from Stylish and Literate for inviting me to be her date! I had a fabulous time. Ate cupcakes, listened to a great presentation from Chantel Guertin, and rounded out the night with a stellar gift bag. You out did yourself Loose Button!

Cupcakes from the event. Super yummy!
Benefit display..so pretty!
Awkward little me :)

And as for that gift bag I mentioned, here's a little look into what each guest received. It was extremely generous and a little overwhelming to receive so many nice things.
Each bag had a copy of The Kit and Chantel's book Stuck in Downward Dog (just in time since I need a new book to dive into). As well we received a special edition Luxe Box and a Demalogica gift set.
The special edition Luxe Box contained a roller ball sample of Valentina by Valentino (which even my mom liked and she is not a big perfume person!), a full size sample of Benefits new Hoola lip gloss, and KPAK Bio-Advanced Restorative Treatment. 

As if the Luxe Box wasn't enough (which it was!) the Dermalogica gift set topped off the night. The set came with: Special Cleansing Gel, Daily Microfoliant, Skin Smoothing Cream, and MultiVitamin Power Firm . I am going to use up what I am currently using for my skin care routine so I can jump right into this set and be able to accurately see the results.

I have to admit I was a little nervous going to this event, I had never been to anything like this before and was sure I would stick out like a sore thumb! However, everyone was so nice it made it easy to have a good time. It was definitely worth driving down to Toronto and sitting on the 401 in traffic :) Again, thank you to Aleeza for bringing me, she is the reason I started blogging and is such a good friend to me.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
