LA Auto Show

Every man in LA knows that Thanksgiving weekend brings the Auto Show, and my hubby was no exception. Every year we attend to view the newest and hottest cars out on the market.

Eco is all the rage in every market and of course there were several wonderful Hybrid options in the car market available, I'm happy to report. Aside from that I was excited to see car manufacturers giving out ECO SWAG as well as being GREEN with their booths and displays. Toyota was one such manufacturers that stuck to me with the Toyota Racing Display. The Toyota floor was made of recycled tires and to take their promotion a step further they gave guests that stopped by their booth a non-woven reusable bag. Very green and very clever.

FIDM Event Catered by Gordon Ramsey

The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising "FIDM" held their annual Alumni holiday dinner. Held at newly opened "The London Hotel" in West Hollywood our dinner was catered by Gordon Ramsey of "Hell's Kitchen".

What about the SWAG you ask? The silent auction offered an array of cosmetic baskets, designer garbs and handbags. The raffle was equally fab with the opportunity to win an autographed LAMB bag signed by Gwen herself!
