The GBK was a Golden Affair for Golden Globes weekend. Upon walking through the doors of the gifting suite at the Montage Beverly Hills you were instantly greeted with a glass of Blue Nun 24K GOLD wine. 24K Gold Wine is a delicious sparkling wine which is light, and elegant with a touch of fruitiness. Its effervescence comes from an old fermentation process, which highlights the natural bubbles. To finish the process they add genuine 24K gold flakes.
Celebrities made their way through the lounge, while perusing gorgeous rugs by eSalesRugs.com and original artwork by LMK Art. LMK Art had a manhole street cover sparkling in Gold glitter with Los Angeles imprinted across. Think what a unique piece that would be for anyone to have in their home or office.
Next stop were some African inspired, hand-made, golden jewelry from California by BOPULENT. We loved the look of these pieces with the gold accents. Gold, after all is the color of awards season!
GBK is famed for their top-tier beauty products. This year they showcased: CO2Lift by Lumisque, which is a state of the art carboxy therapy treatment mask for the Face, Eyes, Neck and Hands. CO2 Lift is clinically proven to lift, hydrate, & rejuvenate your skin with immediate results and no downtime. Who doesn’t love wrinkle free skin?
GBK’s star feature is their focus on great charities. Rodney D. Bullard was in attendance, he is the Executive Director of the Chick-fil-A Foundation. He shared his new book, “Heroes Wanted”. His book “Heroes Wanted” shares inspiring stories, he hopes will help demonstrate compassion in meaningful ways to the people around you. As well as to understand the nature of courage and how to make brave choices, and ultimately to provide hope to the downhearted. Although we didn’t get the pleasure of meeting him, we did chat with his collogue who kindly gave us a gift card for a free meal at Chick-fil-A, because we mentioned in conversation that we have NEVER had a famous chicken sandwich from there (don’t judge us). We’re also looking forward to read “Heroes Wanted”, because who doesn’t want more meaningful people in their life?
We were shaking with excitement as we approached the next vendor. Are you prepared, our fearless reader!? This next product is The Avocado Sock! ( Insert Dramatic Pause) It’s an all natural and effective way to speed up the ripening process of an avocado to ensure a perfectly ripe avocado every single time, read that again EVERY. SINGLE. TIME! Buh-Bye unripe heathens! Avocado nation REJOICE, and get the sock!!
Last but certainly not least Celebs were gifted a tote with over 40 products from The Artisan Group, which includes a collection of handcrafted jewelry, accessories, spa, bath products, candles, cosmetics, clutches, pet accessories, stationery, and other handmade gifts from their artists. We’ll let you in on a secret: alot of our jewelry collection is from the Artisan Group. So many amazing handmade items in this bag its so hard to pick a favorite…. soooo we just keep everything. In return we always have some new pieces to show off during award season.
