ELLE Canada VIP Event Recap

girls night out wine elle canada


I’ve been an avid reader of ELLE Canada for ages. I find that this particular Canadian magazine has very professional articles that span a wide range of topics, suitable for all ages. Living in Toronto means that we're right in the centre of all the action, especially where fashion and beauty are concerned. I signed up to be an ELLE VIP events member at least a year ago, which put’s you on the list for invites to their fun-filled evenings happening a few times each year.

My most recent ELLE event called “Beauty, books & wine - The perfect mix!” celebrated the launch of Lindsey Kelk’s most recent novel Always the Bridesmaid at the super trendy Airship 37 event venue in the Distillery District.

We were all greeted at the door with a glass of white wine, and then proceeded to take a seat end enjoy a Q&A interview with the super successful, gorgeous and hilarious author.

The rest of the evening included mini-manicures from The Ten Spot, makeup touch-ups from Smashbox, and raffles in collaboration with The Corsage Project. If you brought in a lightly used bridesmaid dress as a donation to the charity, you were gifted a Smashbox lip product.

It was such an enjoyable event, mingling over hors d’oeuvres and enjoying little desserts, both on the outdoor patio area and inside the lounge.

As a beauty enthusiast, I was thrilled to receive such a luxe gift bag, which included a little addition from each of the sponsors: A bottle of BFF Red fromGirl’s Night Out, A Smashbox hydrating primer (ob-sesssed), an Essie nail polish in Splash of Grenadine (one of my favourite shades) along with a yummy strawberry-vanilla lip balm from The Ten Spot. We all went home with a signed copy of Always the Bridesmaid, which I started reading on my vacation last week. Not only is the book seriously relatable, but it adds a really authentic dose of humour as you get to know each character. I’d highly recommend it as a fun, light read! For the $25 ticket price, I’m so looking forward to the next ELLE VIP night out.
