Veld Fest 2013 Pictures

If you are from Toronto I’m sure you have seen and heard about the wild concert/rave at Downsview Park this past long weekend. Over the weekend there was Caribana, Drake’s OVO, and EDM Veld music festival. It was the 2nd year for the festival and last year attracted over 50,000 fans and some of the top DJs around the world including Toronto’s Deadmau5. Here are some pictures from the festival, was it better than Caribana and OVO? What do you think?

@SchonMagazine Pre-Olympic Fashion Party

The 2012 Olympic Games will be held in London town this year, and it looks like everyone is cruising in to town on some really high technology. The German embassy kicked off the festivities with a gorgeous party on their Deutschland boat.

Tonight’s lavish party was hosted by Schon Magazine‘s Editor-in-Chief, Raoul Keil. PS: he’s wearing a Hugo Boss suit. I can’t believe it!

And look who I found! Toronto’s own fashion beau Yossi Fisher looking cute as ever in that yellow bow-tie.

Although there’s definitely a lot of competition going on with the International attendants tonight. Check out these punk kids!

There was also a cute photo booth posted by Coco Photobooths with lots of hats and other accessories to play with. Here are some of my fave looks of the night.

Oh, and let’s not forget the very German food served. Can we say sausage and cheese? YUM!

Stay tuned for more Olympics madness by yours truly, in London!

Winter Glamour Party at J. Sisters Salon

Last Wednesday, Social Exposure Media kicked off 2012 with the Winter Glamour Party at the famed J. Sisters Salon inside the Limelight Marketplace. Guests were invited to experience spa-like treatments, hair-styling, makeup touch-ups, baked goods, sponsored cocktails and VIP gift bags.

The Winter Glamour Party is a part of the “Social Exposure Intimate Series,” which focuses on bringing people together to talk shop in unique environments while experiencing luxurious services, products and goods that are specifically targeted to their demographic.

The well-attended event was filled with beautiful faces, many of whom took the opportunity to add some glam with mini-makeovers.

Sweet treats were all around. The cupcakes tasted like marshmallows!

Next, I tried a Hypnotiq cocktail.

The red bottle is the newest Hypnotiq flavor, Harmonie. It has a great berry flavor and goes well with Champagne.

Kansas Clean Distilled Whiskey is a perfect for the new whiskey drinker, with it’s extra smooth and mild taste.


Other sponsors of the night include:
Mina D. Jewelry
Real Beanz Coffee
Voli Vodka
Soy Spacasso
Rain Africa
Angela Angiulu Personal Training Certificates
Sophie Blake Jewelry Designs
Alzerina Gomes Jewelry
Jennifer King Style

@AKOOClothing Holiday Party

AKOO Clothing, rapper T.I.’s clothing line, had a holiday party last Friday, but it wasn’t all about yule tide self-indulgence.  This private party was a canned food drive for the the Food Bank for New York City, and a donation of a minimum of 2 cans was mandatory to attend.

During the jubulence of the holidays, it’s all to easy to overlook those that are less fortunate.  But the fact is, there are many people in our own city that go to bed hungry at night. Enter Food Bank, which helps provide 400,000 free meals a day for New Yorkers in need.

The event, held at SL in the Meatpacking District, featured a Grey Goose open bar and an evening of music and good times.

Here are some shots from the night:
