Angus Glen Bridal Show

I just thought I would share a couple of pictures of the Mindless Sophistication table at this weekends bridal show that was held at the Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham, Ontario. The venue was great. I met lot's of amazing brides and vendors. I wish I had time to take photo's during the show but; that shows you what a great event it was.

The booth was designed by the talented Carol Rame. She absolutely captured the essence of what Mindless Sophistication stands for. The materials used were all top quality. The design was elegant. She was able to blend my functional items; such as computer and banners with a design that was mindlessly sophisticated.

We accepted raffle entries for a draw to take place later this week. The prize is a beautiful Michael Kors handbag that is filled with:

- Godiva dark chocolate pearls
- A Complimentary Day of Coordination from Mindless Sophistication
- A gift certificate for a complimentary massage & personal training sessionc at the exclusive Shape Health & Wellness in Toronto
-Mikasa wine bottle stopper
- Swaravski crystal heart pendant necklace


Oh Sweet Swag Bag

Tomorrow night marks the opening of the 2010 Angus Glen Bridal Show. Mindless Sophistication will be there with bells on.

As many of you know raffles are a common thing found at bridal shows and Mindless Sophistication is no different. We will be offering a swag bag of goodies valued at $1800. This swag bag almost didn't happen because my intention all along was to donate a Stuart Weitzman handbag in Mindless Sophistication blue that came from my very own collection. Don't worry; I have never used this bag and don't anticipate ever using it. It's a hard colour to match up. Why was this a problem do you ask? Well you see gentle reader; I'm a designer handbag-a-holic.

I admit it. I have a handbag problem. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE designer handbags. When my boyfriend does something wrong I rank it in handbags; "Oh, honey this is a Chanel level offense" or "Oh no, you've really done it this time buster. Not even a Hermes Birkin can get you out of this mess." You get the point.

Anyway, my handbag disease got the best of me. Although I will never wear this bag I just couldn't go through with giving it away. I almost ditched the swag bag idea. I tried to be strong; but I just couldn't do it.

I started to think about what designer handbag could I use for this swag that I wouldn't want to keep. It had to be something from a design house I would NEVER want to own. Something cheap enough that I would NEVER want to be have one. I won't mention the design house I came up with because many, MANY people love their products. I do not wish to offend those people. Well the brand I came up with wasn't an option either. Why on earth would I give away a bag that I myself wouldn't own. Well the answer is that I wouldn't. So you won't be seeing that brand this weekend at our booth.

Thankfully tonight the problem was solved. My good friends at Michael Kors have supplied me with a beautiful gold handbag to give away to some very lucky bride. There are rules attached to this give-a-way. Firstly, I'm not allowed to look at this bag more then I absolutely have to. At the moment it's safely hidden in it's dust-cover. No matter how tempted I get to keep this spectacular bag; it MUST be given to the winner of the Mindless Sophistication Swag Bag Raffle being held at Angus Glen Golf Club this weekend.

It's going to be hard; but I can do it. I envy the winner of this bag. It's so lovely. The winner of this raffle will not only receive my envy and a gorgous Michael Kors hand bag; but they will also recieve:

1 Tin of Godiva dark chocolate pearls
1 One free day of coordination compliments of Mindless Sophistication
1 Mikasa wine bottle stopper
1 Swaravski crystal heart pendant necklace
1 Free massage compliments of Shape Health and Wellness
1 Free personal training session compliments of Shape Health and Wellness again.

Combine those items with the Michael Kors handbag and that's some great swag. I invite everyone to come to the Angus Glen Bridal Show this February 19th and 20th in Markham, Ontario. Please stop by the Mindless Sophistication booth. We're booth #38. As an added bonus we will be printing out personal contact information labels for anyone wishing not to strain their hands as they enter all the fabulous raffles.
