Xpocity Vancouver 2014 – A Girls Night Out!!

Xpocity VancouverI was extended an invitation by the Socialettes (a local all-women’s PR company) to attend the first ever Xpocity Vancouver event, held at the swanky Four Seasons Ballroom Vancouver.

Xpocity Vancouver was described as a “social shopping” experience that combines a ladies evening out with product sampling and shopping.  Sounds like a superb girls night out to me!  I quickly enlisted Miz Brown Sugar to accompany me for some fun.

Xpocity VancouverIt was an all-out soiree.  Ladies were dressed up to the nines and there were photographers, photo booths, just fun all-around.  Vendors ranging from fashion to food, event coordinators, spas and makeup were on-site for the ultimate in ladies’ pampering!

Xpocity Vancouver - Moroccan oil Xpocity VancouverSome vendors offered mini manicures, some offered make-up and eyelash touch-ups.  We got a short but relaxing hand massage at the Moroccan Oil/Eccotique stall.  We even got a hairstyle change with Moroccan oil products…I got my straight hair curled and Ms. Brown Sugar got her curly hair straightened!

Xpocity VancouverMs. Brown Sugar and I had lots of fun at Xpocity Vancouver this year.  It was a very well-organized event and everyone was obviously in good spirits.  There was a decent amount of stuff to see but I didn’t feel there was enough to spend a lot of time there.  However this WAS the first event ever so I think it’ll only go up from here.  I hope they’ll continue to grow and expand to become THE event for ladies every year!

Comment? Question? We'd love to hear from you!
