Last Friday, we celebrated the launch of Curated Life magazine at Her Majesty’s Pleasure with Toronto influencers and our community supporters. The event was attended by recording artist, Liz Loughrey, CEO of the[fix], Dr. Liza Egbogah , blogger/image consultant Tara Leydon and members of the Peace Collective. The event also marked the upcoming season of MASTERCLASS events which will resume in July. For those who haven’t heard of the venue, Her Majesty’s Pleasure is a beautiful salon/spa and cocktail bar located in the King West Village of Toronto, Canada.
Just before the long weekend, it was the perfect time to pamper our guests with a complimentary nail polish change. Guests also enjoyed decadent cupcakes from our second-time sponsor, the Bakeshoppe. Like all Curated Life events, the launch provided a networking experience for millennial women entrepreneurs and professionals. Guests in attendance were also able to view the first copies of Curated Life magazine. If you were not able to attend the event and would like to purchase a hard copy, you can do so here. Most of the price covers the cost of printing, but $5 from every copy sold will help fund editorial projects for our second issue.
After the event, each guest was treated to a complimentary gift bag stuffed with these items courtesy of our in-kind sponsors:
A carry on essential, the Jet Lag Therapy kit contains two masterblend teas – Energy and Relax. Energy is an invigorating blend of mint, citrus, yerba maté and ginkgo biloba to help keep you focused. And Relax is a floral, caffeine-free blend to help you ease into a peaceful sleep.
This sampler is a collection of Tealeaves’ top 10 masterblend whole leaf teas. Each blend is packaged in a convenient pyramid tea bag for easy enjoyment. The sampler includes flavours like Organic Earl Grey with Lavender, Vanilla Rooibos and Monsoon Chai.
Established by husband and wife, Joseph and Caramhel Villegas, Toronto Popcorn Company has quickly become a main attraction at Kensington Market. With over 100 flavours of gourmet popcorn, from classic caramel to cupcake, it is a foodie paradise. Toronto Popcorn Company has generously supplied grab bags as a perfect take-home snack.
Glowing skin is always in season. Try this ultra-hydrating overnight mask made with all-natural ingredients. It contains watermelon extract to brighten and nourish with vitamin C, neroli to increase skin elasticity, all-natural silk peptide and aloe to soothe your skin.
Made with a blend of botanical humectants like rosehip, lavender and aloe vera, this Neroli Eye Ritual is an overnight beauty must-have. The ritual works to hydrates your delicate under eye tissue and to minimize puffiness. And the full-size ritual is packaged in a roller-ball for easy application.
There is so much to love about this fragrance brand. Inspired by a mother’s love for her daughter, each perfume is created in France and bottled by the owner’s family in Alberta, Canada. It is a more natural perfume, free of the harmful chemicals found in mainstream fragrances. Bloom 23 is a blend of regal gardenia, jasmine, ylang ylang and vanilla. And Joyfull is a blend of orange flower, lime blossom, rose, jasmine and sandalwood.
Flashionistas is a Canadian line of temporary metallic tattoos you can wear as jewelry. Easy to apply and completely waterproof, these jewelry tattoos are the perfect accessory for the summer!
