Choices Recovery created much needed awareness about addiction in Hollywood while enjoying their “Sweet Choices Candy Bar” courtesy of Infiniti Sweets. Oh Choices Recovery, if you only knew of this roving reporter’s sweet tooth addiction.
Noted talent, media and VIP’s enjoyed a fun day of music from DJ Mike Shay of Superbox Music and tasty sweets from Sugar and Spyked. I enjoyed all the sweets, but the standouts were the lemon margarita cookies and the double chocolate whiskey cookies. Yum!
There was also tattoos by Adam Daniel and a fun motorcycle display courtesy of Nash Motorcycles, make-up touch ups by celebrity makeup artist Victoria Rowe and hair styling from Stephanie Martinez. Rowe had given out some fabulous Primo Lash serum for attendees. “It’s an all-natural lash growth serum,” said Rowe. Durkin’s guests enjoyed tasty burgers from Fresh & Meaty and award-winning beer from Beachwood BBQ & Brewing served in sustainable tableware from Repurpose Compostables. “We have about 60 brews,” said Aaron of Beachwood.
Clothing and accessory-wise, attendees were well taken care of. Festival goers picked up trendy Brazilian yoga jumpsuits from Shama Jade and jewelry from STAGE Men’s Collection & Glamarella JUNK. “Our fine supplex fabrics are manufactured in Brazil and our company headquarters are here in LA. Jade means unconditional love and shama means enlightenment and spark of fire and that’s what I’m trying to spread with this line,” said founder Avalon Barrie.
There were also glamping vacations to Moab and Glacier National Forest from Under Canvas, played with CUSTOS (Debbie’s charming English Lab) in the celebrity pet lounge from CAMP Run-A-MUTT and Letters To The Universe teens-on-tour collected letters from celebrities to generate a connection with self, others and the Universe! “Letters to the Universe is about connecting to self, to others and to the world at large,” said founder Kathy Joy.
Refreshing drinks were served from Icebox Water, True Toniqs, Slim Chiller cocktails and popsicles and took home a gift bag filled with Modern Oats, Barefoot Athletic Company, Fullips, Santa Fe Soul and more!
Photobooth was on hand to catch the antic of the expressive celebs in attendance.

It was an amazing event and kudos to Deb, her staff and the event sponsors for being so eco-minded.
