L'Oréal - VIP Insiders Event

L’Oréal is the biggest and most influential cosmetics company in the entire world. They supply everything from hair to skin products and continue to make the newest and most innovative products on the market. This past August, the Make Your Life Sweeter® team had the opportunity to make the night a little sweeter for a small cocktail party celebrating all that is L’Oréal!

As my team and I arrived to the Omni® Hotel located in the heart of downtown Dallas, I was reminded how beautiful of a place the Omni® is! We proceeded to the conference floor to begin setup for the nights event. When we arrived, we were greeted by the sweetest team over at L’Oréal and soon became quick friends!

As quests started to make their way into the room, they were greeted with a Fluffpop® Artisanal Miniature Gourmet Cotton Candy Live Spin Station with your choice of either Guava, Lychee, Pineapple or Strawberry flavored cotton candy! As I passed assorted flavors of Fluffpop® around the room, I was engulfed in eager and excited guests hoping to grab a taste of the sweet treat!

Throughout the night, those in attendance were welcomed with a variety of food options like street tacos, lobster rolls, sliders and even a diy salad table! As everyone conversed and danced through the night, they were able to remember the event perfectly with a very special and intricate photo-booth with your choice of wig!

It was such a magical night celebrating L’Oréal! The Make Your Life Sweeter® team cannot wait to collaborate with them again!

Neiman Marcus - Hudson Yards Pride Event

Neiman Marcus is a chain of luxury department stores with facilities all around the country. Every year, the Make Your Life Sweeter® team travels vigorously to multiple Neiman Marcus stores to provide one of a kind experiences for eager shoppers.

A few months ago, Neiman Marcus opened their latest store in the newly built shopping center in Hudson Yards. The Neiman’s team flew us out for the grand opening and we all had such a SWEET time! This past June, we were approached by Neiman Marcus Hudson Yards to participate in their fabulous Pride event at the store.

The Make Your Life Sweeter® team arrived in New York to prepare for the days event. As we arrived to Neiman’s, we were directed towards the front of the store, adjacent to the shoe department where we began our setup. As we started arranging our station, we were constantly being surrounded by eager shoppers inquiring about our activation. By the time the event started, the Make Your Life Sweeter® dessert station had a line out the door of ecstatic people who couldn’t wait to try our Sweet treats!

As Neiman Marcus shoppers made their way in, they were welcomed with an ModSweets Artisanal Truffle Bar and a customized Neiman Marcus Hotpoppin® Gourmet Popcorn Bar. Everyone had the opportunity to choose their preferred flavor of Popcorn and Truffle and couldn’t get enough!

Throughout the event, Neiman Marcus provided a live dj, refreshments and professional artists into the store to make the event POP! I couldn’t have thought of a better way to kick off Pride Month! I’m so honored to have had the opportunity to participate in such an amazing event! Can’t wait to see what Neiman Marcus has in store for us next!

Facebook - Bring Your Kids To Work Day

Facebook is the most visited social media platform in the entire world. Every day, millions of users check into the site. With offices all around the world, Facebook is the most influential form of communication of the 21st century. 

The Facebook office located in New York City, is home to hundreds of eager and driven employees. Taking occupancy over multiple floors in one of New Works finest high-rises, everyone has more than enough space to fulfill their most creative potential in order to produce their best work.

This past June, I was asked to Make Life a little Sweeter for Facebooks annual “Bring your kids to work day”, and I was thrilled to be able to attend with my Sweet team!

My team and I arrived to the Facebook office the morning of the event and were greeted with the biggest smiles! Everyone was in such a great mood because of the days events. I was handed an abnormally large MetroCard with the days festivities printed on the back as the Make Your Life Sweeter® team was directed to the Instagram floor to begin setup.

As fellow Facebook employees made their way through the building with their children, they were all welcomed with a HotPoppin® Gourmet Popcorn Bar and a Sugaire® Organic Cotton Candy Custom Tasting Bar! We were placed right next to the complimentary Instagram juice and gelato bar, making it the perfect place to stop and grab a Sweet treat!

As the day progressed, I was able to walk around the Facebook and Instagram offices to see all the festivities that were brought out for this special day. They had face painting, balloon artists, book readings and even real life lego characters running around!

The Make Your Life Sweeter® team had such an amazing time and I am so thankful for such an amazing opportunity and chance to be able to hang out with the cutest kids all day! Can’t wait for next year!

The Knot Pro Workshop - Dallas

Through the years, The Knot Pro has worked hand in hand with wedding planners and caterers all around the world. This year, the well known wedding industry has started something new. Instead of being exclusive to only planners and caterers, the Knot Pro has decided to open their doors to the public. Through their highly rated “test trials”, brides of all walks of life are able to come up close to all of the wonderful products and services that The Knot Pro has to offer. This past September, the Make Your Life Sweeter® team was asked to participate in the Knot Pros very first trail run in Dallas Texas!

My team and I arrived in the early morning to set up for the days festivities and were blown away by the transformation of the venue. As guests walked in, they were greeted with an ombre wall of colors and important information as they checked in for the day. Brides welcomed quests through the doors, dressed in the most beautiful dresses that I had ever seen.

As you walked through the building, you were transformed into multiple dream weddings. We had the modern bride, whose room was chic and glam; we had the traditional room full of beautiful finger foods and floral landscapes. To the left we had a room full of donut walls and chairs of all different shapes and sizes, and in the other we had floor seating with bohemian table pieces and tapestries lining the walls. Every kind of bride was illustrated into the making of this beautiful masterpiece. Wether you wanted a traditional or bohemian wedding, you were sure to find inspiration within these walls.

When the Make Your Life Sweeter® team arrived, we were escorted to the bohemian room and began to set up for the days festivities. Guests were welcomed with a Sugaire® Organic Cotton Candy Infusion Bar as they entered the venue and were ecstatic over the sweet treat.

The Knot Pro’s first bride friendly convention was an amazing success and cannot wait to see what the future has to offer for this amazing company!

D Magazine - January 11, 2018

100 Ideas for Living a Beautiful Life in Dallas

Our first event of 2018 was soooo SWEET!

We made it on the D Home “100 Ideas for Living a Beautiful Life in Dallas.” YAY!!!

This event showcased some of the best vendors around Dallas for living a beautiful, luxurious life. We had a very special activation for this event. Instead of using our popcorn bins and a regular table, we worked with our venue and space and had HotPoppin® and Sugaire® INSIDE SINKS!!! We have never done an activation like this and it was a total HIT!! Seeing everyone’s expressions as they walked in to see popcorn and cotton candy inside sinks was so memorable.

The venue for this event was none other than Expressions Home Gallery in the Dallas Design District. It almost felt like Expressions was made for this D Home event. Every aspect of this venue was so aesthetically pleasing. The very first thing people saw was a beautiful bathtub filled with a gorgeous flower arrangement from The Southern Table. I could feel the excitement of people as they walked in to see the home gallery wonderland.

Bass was rattling chandeliers, The Bowen House Dallas bartenders were serving up some amazing cocktails and Oakclifff’s Garnish Kitchen was Flambé-ing away.

While mingling, guests had several different activations to see. Oil and Cotton was teaching calligraphy with leaves and Maxine Owens from The Southern Table was demonstrating DIY flower arrangements.

D Home and D magazine are very near and dear to my heart. I have been working with them since I started Make Your Life Sweeter and I am so glad I still get the opportunity to work with them. This event was SO SWEET! Everything came together perfectly and my team had a blast meeting new vendors, clients and new friends.

Until next time, D Live!

Facebook Holiday Party NYC

New York City is home to some of the most innovative and high tech companies in the world. This past December, we had the opportunity to explore Facebook’s insanely SWEET office.

Most large work spaces and offices are designed with cubicles and plain walls - Facebook is NOTHING like that. Everything about this office was fascinating. It’s every employee’s dream office; no two rooms or floors are alike, you’re fed three meals a day with an abundance of options.  Here are just a few of the SWEETEST things I saw while at Facebook NY!

  1. Nestled inside the world of Facebook is Sweet, sweet Instagram. The North side of the 7th floor belongs to Instagram’s programmers and consultants.  Since the holidays were just around the corner, we treated the Instagram team to a hot chocolate bar infused with their choice of  Sugaire® Cotton Candy (Classic, Sweet Peppermint or Sea Salt Caramel).

2. Micro Kitchens are conveniently located around each floor, stocked with a plethora of your favorite snacks and drinks. Each micro kitchen included a snack cart, three refrigerators full of every drink imaginable, and a latte machine for coffee and tea. My favorite snack was Peeled Snacks Organic Dried Mango with a FOUND Elderflower Sparkling Water. SO YUMMY!!

3. Motivational. Posters. EVERYWHERE. Literally everywhere I turned there was a poster telling me to continue doing what I love and I loved it!! I was introduced to many new quotes, along with some of my favorites. Positivity was all around! Along with the motivational posters, each office and conference room was named something hilarious. There was a “Pokemon” office and a “Leggo my Eggo” conference room, to name a few.

4. “The Weekly Push” - this is a weekly update posted inside the stalls of each bathroom stall that gives insight on specific Q & A’s, How To’s and updates on how Facebook is doing as a whole company. Besides the articles on the stall doors, these restrooms are DECKED OUT! Essentials such as sanitary items, deodorant, toothbrushes, floss and mouthwash are provided in each of the restrooms. Forgetting something essential at home is so annoying, but Facebook has helped employees by providing everything that they may need to be comfortable in the office.

5. My favorite thing about FacebookNY’s office is none other than the FOOD. Gourmet food is provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Desimone's is a cafeteria set up like a school cafeteria, but with a more adult feel to it. Cafeteria tables are set up and employees actually sit next to each other and socialize. The chef’s prepare food for all dietary restrictions. There is also an extravagant salad bar with any salad item you can imagine, a make-your-own sandwich bar that ends with panini grills and even an ice cream cart filled with your favorite flavors of organic ice cream!

Every Thursday from 5pm-7pm a happy hour mixer happens in the cafeteria. The awesome event staff that organizes this event, features different vendors with yummy snacks and treats every week! This happy hour happened to be SWEETER than any normal happy hour, because we were in attendance with a Hotpoppin® Gourmet Popcorn Bar bar and a Sugaire® Organic Cotton Candy hot chocolate infusion bar! While all of the employees were enjoying their Chinese takeout inspired dinners and taking pictures in the photo booth, they were stopping by our tables for some popcorn and hot chocolate!

My team and I had an unforgettable experience at the Facebook office. Our clients, Carolyn Nagler & Daniel Stokes, took such great care of us and we can’t wait to be back again to make Facebook a little bit sweeter!!

McKool Smith

A night full of serendipitous laughter and dancing were in full effect the night of December eighth. Held at the beautiful Belo mansion, the Mckool Smith law firm held their annual holiday party in the most extravagant way.

The “lights” theme was in full swing starting at the door. Guests were greeted by 12 foot robotic characters signaling their way to the entrance using laser guns, quite the entrance if you ask me! Inside you were handed light-up necklaces from women dressed in LED dresses with matching headsets.

The historic Belo Mansion was completely redecorated to fit the nights theme. They sure lit it up!! Chandeliers made of disks were covering the ceiling, reflecting a beautiful rainbow off of anyone's path it crossed. Light’s of all different colors ran up the walls. Floral pieces decorated the tables with the most magical embellishments.

Every room had a different theme, as well as a different act. In the first room you were greeted by an insanely talented singer with a dress of fire. (Don’t worry, it was computerized!) In the second room, dueling piano singers doing some amazing...well, you guessed it, duets! In the next held Tarot readers, dressed to the nine in the most whimsical outfits anyone had ever seen.

The food was served in fish- bowl like dishes to guests and included many choices for even the pickiest of eaters. From shrimp to french fries, everyone's deepest cravings were satisfied with the food selection.

The excitement of the night skyrocketed as the Make Your Life Sweeter® team entered the party. Whimsical women dressed head to toe in reflected outfits carried a plethora of light up Sugaire® on trays out to eager guests. The party- goers couldn’t get enough of the SWEET treat. Flavorful poofs of Gingerbread and Sweet Peppermint flavored Organic Cotton Candy couldn’t make their way around the room fast enough!

The night ended with men and women of all ages dancing and singing on the dance floor to a Canadian cover band with an amazing spectrum of songs, as well as eighty different costume changes. It was a SWEET night, to say the least!

MS Society Luncheon - November 10, 2017

Each year, we donate our services to some SWEET organizations and charities. The MS Society® has, and continues to hold a very special place in my heart. A few years ago, my aunt was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I have seen the effects of living with this disease first hand and am more than happy to help in any way possible when it comes The MS Society®.  

This past year I was chosen as the “MS Society Person on the Move” and was so grateful for the opportunity to make everyones day a little sweeter. The MS Society® of Texas was also celebrating their 1 million dollar donation milestone, which made for a amazing evening!

What an honor  it was to be selected as 2017’s “Person on the Move”! I still can't believe it, but I am so proud to be a supporter of The MS Society®.
