Last night I went to the annual Cookies & Champagne Party hosted by The Hip and Urban Girl's Guide at Steam Whistle Brewing. If you've never been or even heard of such a thing, it's a big gathering that happens in Toronto, where guests are asked to bring 3 dozen homemade cookies and then participate in a cookie exchange while hanging out with a fantastic crowd and enjoying a drink or two. You also have the option to not get involved with the cookie exchange and simply buy the networking ticket.

There were some really great vendors on-site and perfectly themed for Valentine's Day including LUX-Spa offering manicures throughout the evening, Inspire Cosmetics, Arbonne, Samantha Stylish, Laborde Designs, Stella & Dot, Le Dolci, Pita Break, Summer Fresh and more.

This was the first year that the HUG ladies opened up the event to guys as well. I was impressed to see 10 per cent of the crowd were men. ;) Hopefully there will be many more next year.

 
 
James went to the HUG Cookies & Champagne Party with me and had a fantastic time. Maybe I should drag him to more events with me, hehe.


It was good to see + catch up with Raymi again! Yep, we were stuffing our bags with cookies.


There were sooo many choices. I was amazed at some people's creativity.

 

Saw some beautiful pieces at the Laborde Designs booth, and had a nice time chatting with Margarita who was representing the brand.


Always great seeing Canadian/local brands being represented at events! Samantha Stylish (left) is a writer and photographer, and on the right we have Manda, who is the head designer for Manda Designs.

I will be uploading the rest of the photos from HUG Cookies & Champagne Party along with recipes of the cookies James and I made on PB&J Mag in the next few days. Look out for it!
