Nathalie Dubois-Sissoko / DPA Gift Suite at the LUXE Hotel on Rodeo Drive September 19th, 2015

What more could you ask for? A perfect Southern California Day in Beverly Hills on top of a boutique hotel and being treated to loads of gifts for The 2015 Emmy Awards. DPA gift suite did not disappoint, with all it’s elegance and glamour there were lots of unusual gifts to be had.

They have it so organized, upon entrance you are put into a small holding area until your guide is ready to take you through, every perfect detail is covered. As you wind your way around the rooftop many fantastic people and products greet you. Thank God for air conditioning; it was another one of our hot September days in Los Angeles but the inside offered a nice cool reprieve as well as beautiful panoramic views from the rooftop which added to the overall ambiance.

Here are all of the vendors represented:

Gavee Gold, 24 K purified liquid Gold skincare (, Cinq Etoiles a new collection by NY Arido jewelry, (, M. Andrews Sartorial luxury collection and its custom made leather shoes (, Bow and Arrow 78, tee shirts with images of Bruce Lee, R System, Zimbabwe’s menswear Line Xipixi, India’s couture gown designer Sai Suman, Petsmood, a new line of accessories and furniture for animals, Judy B Swim, Barebumz bikinis, Underground Culture, NDS LA and celebrity hairstylist Shann Christen and his BioMethod line, Milena’s Boutique, SquareHue, Truly Yours Parfums, Lyft, Pacific Beach peanut butter, Faucet Face, Victory Career College, Truth in hand, and Marchon eyewear. Also Luxe Hotel Rodeo Drive, High Brew Coffee, The Berry Company, Icebox water, Kneady bakery, Cake Eater bakery, and Amara Coffee. There were also two great charitable organizations: Lupus LA and the Wolf connection, where howling was abundant amongst the celebrities that were doing interviews for them.

I also must mention this great new deli Carvery Kitchen, “The Art of Deli.” They provided some delectable salads and lovely hand carved sandwiches, I need to go to their Santa Monica location and do an official tasting cause the food was so good.

I was gifted a lot of hair products from R System and Shann Christen, which are always welcomed because of my very large mane. I was also gifted a bigger booty bikini bathing suit from Barebumz Bikini’s that I love! I tried the line of skin products from Gavee Gold and was very impressed. The owner’s story alone of surviving Stage IV Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma was just the most heart warming, uplifting, heroic story. Tiffany Andersen is a force of nature, and her creating Gavee Gold for the heath conscious was in itself an amazing feat. Her undying dedication to never give up when faced with the most severe adversities, and her energy was so contagious; I get teared up just thinking about Tiffany.

There were some celebrities when I was there, but most showed up earlier hours. I saw Kevin Sorbo who brought his adorable daughter, Octavia, as well as Dalton Gray of American Horror Stories. You can check out DPA Facebook page to see who all attended, they get all of the A-listers!

I love the camaraderie with the vendors, the celebrities and the media. We all have just one thing in mind, to enjoy the day! DPA makes sure that our time at their suite is very memorable, and truly makes me know how fortunate I am to be in this glorious business!!

I am always very pleased to be invited to Natalie’s wonderful gift suite, and find that every time I attend it enriches my life in ways I did not know were even possible, thanks Natalie!
