Mixing UP Yummy Cocktails

The Legacy Lounge for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, hosted by TPGPR at the Congo Room at LA Live Complex, celebrated music's biggest stars...... Some of music’s most celebrated stars, nominees, presenters, performers for the MTV Video Music Awards, actors and VIPs strolled through the Legacy lounge while being gifted with SWAG of new, hip products, as they sipped on Vitamin Water, Smart Water, Monster Energy drinks, delicious cocktails made with Dolce Touch Vodka, and munching on Pirates Booty corn puffs, frozen yogurt and yummy cupcakes.

Chill Cafe

As we entered the lounge everyone was thankfully greeted by Chill Café, who was serving up cups of their delicious frozen yogurt and sorbets with fruit for the VIP guests to enjoy during this Southern California heat wave!


Rowenta Beauty

Rowenta Beauty was gifting celebrities and VIP’s with their fantastic high end line of the luxury hair appliances, which can be found in Canada’s top salons.  One of my favorite products is their straightening and curling iron all in one, making it the perfect companion.  It’s made with titanium technology, and has a layer of ceramic for non-damaging infrared heat. 


Ryan Blackstock of Schoodie

Schoodie is going to be one of my favorite new products.  It’s one of those “why didn’t I think of that” things---a very cool looking, soft warm scarf with built in hoodie---I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this.


Darryl Jackson (Jaccpot Records Star) Poses With Serious Pimp Sunglasses

Serious Pimp, owned by rap artist, Snoop Dogg, was gifting the celebrities, stars, nominees, presenters, talent and media to their choice of their awesome sunglasses.


Stud Life Tees

Stud life has a very cool collection of tee shirts with fun designs.  With the new Playboy Show coming up, I had to choose the Hugh Hefner.


SmallCakes Cupcakes

We were all enjoying Smallcakes cupcakes that feature seasonal and special flavors created by Jeff and Brandy Martin. After appearances on the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars” seasons one and two as well as on the hit daytime talk show “The View,” Smallcakes became well known and in hot demand in neighborhoods across the nation.

Crunches are an innovative breakthrough in blending great taste with important nutrition: Crunchies® – freeze-dried fruits and vegetables have proven hugely appealing to everyone.  Available today in a wide variety of deliciously nutritious flavors, Crunchies® are produced by placing individually frozen fruits and veggies in a refrigerated vacuum chamber that removes up to 97% of the moisture.  They’re not just good—they’re addictively scrumptious.


Sports Massage Extreme

Art San was sharing the pain erasing techniques he developed, by giving mini treatments of his Sports Massage Extreme to the invited guests at the Lounge.

Peter Stanyon of Heart to Heart Non Profit Organization

Heart to Heart is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Jayne Stanyon to benefit organ and tissue donation. The Stanyon's lost their two daughters in two separate car accidents; a tragedy changing their lives forever. The first accident took their daughter Kirsty in 2003.  It was during this time that their daughter Hollie shared her wishes with her family to become an organ donor should she ever be faced with that. The untimely phone call that followed, which shared the news of Hollie's accident, was earth shattering to say the least. It was at this time that Jayne and Peter were able to donate Hollie's organs; saving 6 people's lives and enhancing the lives of many more through tissue donation.

Heiresses of Mercy, Ooh La La Boutique, and Caribbean Living Magazine.

The Nominee and Presenter Gift Bag Sponsors included Fendi, O.P.I., Eden Fantasys, and Wasted Cupcakes.
