Our Special Christmas Party - Brazilian Bloggers Night to Remember

Hello my fabulous people,

The Brazilian Bloggers are taking over :) We had the most amazing party EVER!
It's Christmas time and I'm counting the days to be celebrating the best holiday of the year with my family in Brazil.
Before I get to that (which will be next week), I would like to share with all of you the amazing experience celebrating Christmas with my LA family. This past Sunday was really special to me, it was the first of many Brazilian Bloggers Christmas party. It will be a annual celebration now. It was an event promoted by the three of us: Flavia Araujo (Fromriotola blog), Nani Bergman (Lipstickcookie blog) and I(Fabulouschannel),  Thanks to all friends, and friends of friends who attended and brought their great Christmas spirits to our party.
What an amazing night!!
To describe a bit of it I would like to mention the many things that happened in our special night:

  • There is no Christmas without a beautiful house completely Christmas decorated. We had one. So thanks to the party host Patricia Leao from Brazilian Nites Events, to let us use the house for this celebration.
  • There is no Christmas without a beautiful table full of the best foods and desserts. We had a great variety of delicious dishes including the best brigadeiros provided by the Cupcake Brigadeiria(I totally recommend it), and the amazing Christmas decorated gelatin/Jello made by Mimi Guzman (delicious and beautiful) !!
  • There is no Christmas without a great deal of holiday songs and we had the best music a party can have. We had a live performance by the sensational singer Coleen McMahon. She put tears in a lot of eyes during her warm performance!
  • There is no Christmas without games and we played a very FUN one, BINGO! That was just the most engaging part of the night. The Brazilian Bloggers took the lead and went for a short speech before getting started prizing the winners of the night.We had a pair of tickets to spend New Years Even at the Queen Mary, (tickets provided by Patricia Leao - Brazilian Nites), we had bottles of wine, jewelry ,kits, and a dinner for two provided by the Pizzaria Bella Vista.
  • Ah, one more thing, there is no Christmas without tons of pictures,so, we had a Christmas backdrop exclusively created to ours awesome clicks by Livia Wippich!
Here are the Highlights of the Night!

And if you are in town for New Years Eve, you've got to go to the Queen Mary for the best Brazilian Experience Ever!! Here is all the info:

Special Sunday with the Brazilian Bloggers

Hello my fabulous people,

Happy Holidays in advance!!
Let's welcome Christmas time with a lot of love and great spirits.
I'm counting the days to celebrate it with my family in Brazil, but before that I must say that Christmas time starts here with my LA family. 
This past Sunday I had the honor to meet up with my favorite Brazilian Bloggers, Flavia Araujo (From Rio to LA) and Nani Bergman (LipstickCookie) at one of the best Brazilian restaurants in town, Gamela Grill, located at 7250 Canoga Ave, Canoga Park.
They have some SERIOUS churrasco(best Brazilian meat cut right in front of you from the grill -  bacon wrapped chicken · garlic beef · Picanha - hot dishes · and much more) a great variety of home made food. 
I was in heaven with all my favorite meats and dishes right in front of me and had no idea it would taste so homey! 
Wondering what's their differential?? Hum, a great chef in the kitchen of course... Ah, it's not just a chef, it happens to be the Brazilian mom whose daughter (Anna) owes the restaurant. They both were there to give us a 5 start treatment. We loved the visit. The food had a special taste that you will only find out when you come by..  
The afternoon was fun from beginning to ending. Thanks to our photographer Livia Wippich we had amazing shots to share with you guys a bit of our experience at the restaurant.
Now it's your turn to visit and eat some DELICIOUS HOME MADE BRAZILIAN FOOD!!
After all the eating, photos and talking, we arranged the make plans for our Christmas party coming up this Sunday. If you got the invitation, you are a lucky one. Be ready for some fun with the Brazilian Bloggers!!
