Beauty Secret: The Socializer

25 year old Margot Grant knows a thing or two about being tired! She is a world traveller and her busy work and social life keeps her on the tip of her toes! She is also the mastermind behind the Socializer! She is the brains behind the product, package design, etc. The product was inspired by her lifestyle. Margot is the head of PR and Marketing for Elizabeth Grant and she is always traveling the world for events, business meetings, – out late, up early! etc. And Elizabeth Grant happens to be her grandmother!

The Socializer Late Nights pen helps to erase the telltale signs of too much fun and too little
sleep. Apply it before you crash and wake up looking fresh and dewy.

The secret is “ulva lactuca” an unique algae that helps improve the skin’s elasticity and increase
collagen synthesis, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and regenerates skin allantoin to relieves
irritated skin. Chamomile soothes and calms the skin.

The Socializer by Elizabeth Grant is a sleek silver cylinder with two little pens full of powerful potions that will help you make the scene any time. From flashing lights to goodnight, The Socializer™ Late Nights is your key to looking like it never happened. It’s your too-much-fun-too-little-sleep remedy; apply before you crash and wake up looking like you slept like a baby.

I was so lucky to meet Elizabeth and Margot at FIDM this past year!  She is simply amazing and inspirational.

Divas in the City

Toronto’s First Forum for Fabulousness

She’s got the upwardly mobile 9-5, company blackberry, one bedroom plus den, Pilates class pass and a weak spot for VIP sample sales. Everything is good on paper, but she’s searching for something more…and that’s not code for “boyfriend”. Call it meaning, passion or joie de vivre: She wants to be Diva-fied.

Starring: Martin Lindquist, Carla Lopez, Rodrigo Fernandez-Stoll & Brianne Hogan
John Mayer’s a “douchebag.” Everyone knows it. He knows it. Tired of his tabloid tenure as Hollywood’s “Mr. Wrong”, he sets out to find his long-lost Japanese summer school love, Rihanna (no, not that one) to right his romantic wrongs. Inevitable hijinks ensue when Rihanna’s pals, Carly and Calvin, learn of their friend’s forbidden love, realize their own artistic careers could benefit from a Mayer-iffic meeting, and do everything in their power to make it happen—even if it means creating a “Heartbreak Warfare.”

Beauty Industry West at Studio BeautyMix

Studio Beauty Mix is heaven for beauty product junkies and it is located just off Freeway 10 in Santa Monica. I attended my first BIW event – the annual beauty mixer!

Thank you Huey for ths ‘instant’ pic

I got to see my FIDM friends as well as make some new ones.

There was a mix crowd of manufacturers, beauty bloggers, raw material suppliers, componentry folk and a slew of beauty students trying to find their place in the not so glamorous side of the beauty industry.
My new fab beauty friends!
