This week Al and I attended a stylish soiree, thrown by Extreme Fitness and sponsored by Glow Magazine, Woman.ca, French Connection, Lacoste, Blowfish Sushi, Dermalogica, Tony Chaar Salon, and a few others. What sold us on this party was the promise of free cocktails and free sushi (What? I blame the economy and my shopping addiction). Cocktails we got, sushi not so much. With Blowfish Sushi as one of the sponsors, I’d assume that we’d at least see a few trays of yummy deliciousness passed around (saw two trays all night). I understand that it was a fitness party, but was it implied that fit people don’t eat?! We were so hungry, that when I found a girl with a tray of seaweed wrapped carrots, rice, and lettuce (is that even food?!), I grabbed one for myself and one for Al and carried it triumphantly upstairs. I almost had to fight the starving women off me, with many inquiring where or where had I obtained that precious piece of something edible.
With the gripe out of the way, I must admit that the rest of the party was a blast! Hair and makeup makeovers, eyelash extensions, oxygen bar, and skin care consultations! Gift bags, French Connection styling competition, jumping models of Lacoste, DJ Chris La Roque on the turntables…so many things to see and do! Great time was had by all. And I guess the free flowing alcohol made most of us forget about the lack of food!
On a side note, this being a fitness party and all, I finally signed up for a gym membership! Hooray! Last time I had one, I used it maybe 10 times (in 2 years). But am positive that this time will be different! I can just feel it!
