Bands for Arms are handmade bracelets made out of donated military uniforms to support many military non-profit associations.

I loved the gourmet M&M’s that were award themed. Their display was conveniently located by Dr. Jamie Sands, a cosmetic dentist. How apropos! You can indulge your inner sweet tooth then look into treatment from a wonderful dentist.

Haala Denim’s line looks super cool! The material felt really soft and the jeans look stylin’. I liked that these hand-crafted premium jeans are made locally in Los Angeles.

I love Sheela’s beautiful bracelets from Shatra’s Designs. She combined her daughters names, Shaya and Autra, to come up with the catchy name of her handcrafted jewelry. Created with theatrical whole person in mind, each piece affects who we truly are.

Suja Juice is the fastest growing organic, cold-pressed and non-GMO beverly company in the US. Suja means long, beautiful life.

Still with You is a heart-warming memorial statue depicting the many ways our loved ones comfort us that have passed on.

Katia of LASTAR Greens Perfect 10 Superfoods

LASTAR’s Greens Perfect 10 Superfoods were healthy, but oh so tasty. It’s the world’s first certified organic blend of the top ten superfoods and it’s made in Europe.

I’m a gal on the go that loves LUNA Bars. They use the best ingredients possible and nutrition that matters most to women.

Monster energy drink kept the celebs and media in attendance revved up.

Tasty Pasta Chips are made with semolina flour and Italian herbs, giving it a nice kick over the typical snack fare. They’ve married this Tuscan inspired chip with different seasonings based on regional Italian favorites.

Popchips are a favorite snack of mine and are delicious potato, tortilla, corn and veggie chips like I’ve never had before. Crisp, airy and oh so tasty, they are never fried or baked and they start with the finest ingredients. These chips have all the flavor and crispiness, and half the fat of fried chips.

I loved LeMedallion Champagne. Very great tasting and fruity accents. It’s classic French champagne created for the affluent consumer and it’s aged 30 months rather than the typical 17 months.

I also loved John Kelly chocolates. Their rich truffle fudge bars are utterly amazing and I’m a true chocoholic. It’s not surprise that these bars are award-winning.
