NOTE: I received complimentary tickets to the event, but all opinions are based on my own experience.
I was invited to attend Xpocity Vancouver 2015 hosted by the Socialettes which happened last week at the Four Seasons Hotel ballroom. Xpocity is an event that brings women together for an evening of socializing and shopping and showcases a variety of fashion, food, drinks, beauty, and fitness vendors that women would be interested in.
There were over 60 vendors and everyone was extremely friendly! Tons of samples and new experiences at the event.
SocieTea Events offers boutique mobile high tea and brunch services and had afternoon tea treats for us to sample. I loved how girly all the chinaware was and can see it being perfect for showers or birthdays!
We got to sample some marshmallows and macarons at Bon Macaron Patisserie and I tried the Matcha which was strong in tea flavour. K tried the Yuzu which was also delicious! I like how the flavour tasted very natural and the meringue was light. Owners are from France, so you can be sure of the authenticity!
At Sweet Petite Confectioner, they set up a S’mores Bar and I got to sample a torched earl grey marshmallow. This melted in your mouth and had a strong earl grey flavour. They offer a variety of other sweets other than marshmallows and is perfect to book for events.
One of my favourties of the night was from Everyday Superfoods. They have a variety of products, but the one they were showcasing that night was their new product It’s Not Bacon. They’ve pitched on Dragons’ Den with the product and they definitely fooled me with it! These are coconut flakes that taste just like bacon! K who is vegan enjoyed this thoroughly!
Truffles Fine Foods was also there that night with some lemon meringue pies and tomato basil and Bocconcini skewers. They offer customized experiences and are have a variety of menus for catering.
The Juice Truck has been around for quite some time now and they have even opened a store since. It was my first time trying these healthy juices and I was surprised that they actually tasted pretty good. I tried the Skin Deep, which featured apple, strawberry, kiwi and lemon.
Then it was time to try some wine samples! We headed over to Firefly Fine Wines and Ales which is a private liquor store and we sampled some white wines. My favourite was the Prosecco by Luna and it was ever so light with a bit of sparkle and hint of sweetness. The wines they featured were also quite affordable.
There were also some funky looking bottled spirits featured at Odd Society Spirits.
Another favourite vendor of mine was Pure Float, which offers Vancouver’s first all-float room spa. Well since they couldn’t transport those rooms to the event, we got to try a 15 minute NeuroSpa treatment instead. It was pretty relaxing after a long day at work and I felt vibrations along with music that went down my spine. Pretty neat!
Another one of our favourites was from Flipbook Entertainment and it was even better because we each got to take home a memorable flipbook. You pick your props and then step in front of the camera which films you for a few seconds. Within 5 minutes, they are able to produce a flipbook for you to relive the moment!
Overall, I was very pleased with the vendors at Xpocity 2015 and look forward to attending next year again! A fun night to hang out with your girl friends! Thank you to Xpocity for the invitation!
