I was so excited to be able to attend Unique LA this weekend at the California Market Center! Although, I was only able to attend 1 of the 2 days, I managed to score some awesome bits & pieces! For all of you unfamiliar with the subject, Unique is the destination for all things made in America. It is a way to bring over 350 hand-selected, local designers and artists to the masses, while helping to support, sustain, and grow small businesses and the local economy.
At the event, we received cotton tote bags, unlimited re-entry for both days, free drinks and snacks from JOIA All Natural Sodas, Honest Tea, GT’s Kombucha, KIND bars, Cookie Chips, and LUNA! There were even DIY craft projects and a free photobooth! Unique is also expanding to NYC & SF, so if you are in any of those markets, be sure to check it out! If you are in LA and want to attend another event, they are returning in August and December! Go to their website for more information!
Omg! These sauces were so good that I had to get all three – Red Pepper Romesco, Pistachio Mint Chutney, and Thai Chile Cilantro Dressing! I recommend that you get your hands on these pronto, your taste buds will thank you! But first, help them get their first large scale batch to the market, by supporting their Kickstarter Project!
Red Pepper Romesco works with pasta or pizza sauce, sandwich spread, mayo substitute, dipping or finishing sauce for meats & veggies.
Pistachio Mint Chutney works with finishing sauce, grilling sauce for meat & veggies, breakfast eggs, paninis, or quinoa.
Thai Chile Cilantro works with salad or pasta dressing, marinade for meat, chicken, or fish, or as a finishing sauce.
I was able to sample this scrub today and it was AMAZEBALLS! My hands felt so silky smooth and smelled like heaven! It is not only for your hands, but for all parts of the bodyyyy! It will be a BODY PARTY…
Avocado Chocolate paleta? Umm… YES!
Leather Bottom Vida Cross Body Bag! As soon as I saw this, I knew it was meant to be. What made me love it more was the fact that it can turn into a fanny pack! Awesome, right?! See below!
I thought this shirt was hilarious… my parents didn’t… fail. hehe.
I hope you all enjoyed an inside look at my “lovely F&*$%#@ day” at Unique LA! It was such a blast and I cannot wait to go back in August and December!
