A setting sun illuminated the South La Cienega, Smog Shoppe—a platinum LEED certified event space—as media professionals arrived for ‘An Evening To Experience Total Electrolytenment.' An open floor plan, was enhanced by a sky-lighted ceiling and succulent plants artfully caressing the walls. Sponsored by lifestyle site Daily Candy and Resource Natural Spring Water, the gathering melded visionary up-and-coming lifestyle brands in the LA market. During a VIP cocktail reception, host Jeremiah Brent, a reality star on Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project, introduced the evening’s partners, which included Lion'esque Style, Women Empowered, KitchIt, Blushington MakeUp & Beauty Lounge, Ballet Bodies and Christine Avanti Nutrition.
A beer and wine bar poured a nice Rose, pairing well with passed bites and a signature lasagna cupcake station prepared by local organic caterer, Heirloom LA. Food played a common theme throughout. Most noteworthy, a company new to the culinary community, servicing the San Francisco Bay area and Los Angeles: KitchIt.
