This past Friday, I hosted a Privilege Toast for Angel Merino (@mac_daddyy) to celebrate his recent accomplishments and his birthday!! This was held at the Commissary at The Line Hotel and the setting was absolutely gorgeous. We were on the rooftop, beautiful view of Koreatown, Edison lights (my fave), a gorgeous setting, delicious food and of course – some amazing unique Hennessy Privilege cocktails!

We had some of the top Beauty / Fashion Influencers in attendance such as Emily Sears, Peter Anthony Perez, Arika Sato, La Demi, Carolina Enamorado, Vanessa Ceballos, Anthony Bradshaw and Jackie Aina and more! I must say, our table was looking prettyyyyy gorgeous! Highlight on fleek! lol We enjoyed cocktails by Hennessy Privilege including The Garden of Privilege, Ginger Privilege and Hennessy Privilege Neat. Yum!

Mid way through the dinner, I stood up and did a Toast to Angel and spoke about his recent accomplishments and how I am so proud of him – Named one of the top 7 Beauty Gurus to follow by Latina Magazine, Hosted at Beautycon LA, new website launch for ArtistCouture, just shot a new Ad Campaign for Nyx Cosmetics to name a few 😉 – and this kind of started a domino affect. After my toast, Angel stood up and spoke to his guests then 2 of his guests stood up and did a toast to him as well. It was all very inspiring! Really glad I spent my Friday night with genuine, inspirational people. Very refreshing and I can’t wait to do it again!
