Los Angeles Panelists
Small town girl from a rural town in New Hampshire. At the age of 18 I packed up three suitcases and made the trek to LA to pursue my dream of becoming a model. By the time I was 19 I had 2 magazine covers under my belt and a billboard on the famous Sunset Blvd. My modeling career took me around the world to some of the most beautiful locations only most dream of. When I turned 24 I booked the hit TV show “Deal or No Deal” as one of the briefcase babes. Being on a TV set sparked a new passion, a passion to not only be in magazines but on the big screen as well. Being in the entertainment industry gave me a platform to give back, which is the reason I started my own charity Cause 4 Paws. Ive been giving back to the homeless community and their pets for the last 7 years here in Los Angeles.
I’m a hippie at heart that loves to frolic the beaches in my bare feet, drink Pinot Nior and see where the days takes me…..always up for a new adventure..big or small.

We’re just a couple of local guys with one big goal: make the best alcoholic beverages. We’re done with the sugary, hangover-inducing beverages on the market, even the ones that are supposed to be “better for you”.
Instead of waiting for a better option, we created it. Introducing Nude Vodka Soda, a sugar-free, sweetener-free, and gluten-free alcoholic beverage with only 100 calories per can. Nude is made with triple distilled vodka, sparkling water, and all natural fruit extracts and essences. We worked with an award-winning natural beverage developer, resulting in a crisp and refreshing beverage that we believe is the new standard in the beverage industry.

Sweet Treats by Alicia
I started to develop my love for baking while attending the University of British Columbia, studying Kinesiology. I used baking as my creative outlet, making cakes and treats for every special occasion.
After graduating from university I knew this was the career path I wanted to pursue, so I attended the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts and graduated with a diploma in Baking & Pastry.
I love how baking allows me to combine my background in science and my creative side. My goal is to make desserts that are both beautiful and delicious. I want to make all celebrations unforgettable by creating sweet treats, just for you.

Arro is a brand made by women for women. We built our brand based on what we wanted, what flattered our curves, and what gave us the most confidence to power through our work outs.
The seed for Arro was planted when we were seeing real results from similar products, but knew we could create something better. We had been introduced to wraps made of neoprene and rubber that would insulate the core to help you get the most out of your workout! The results were great, but the reality was a bulky waistband that would slide around as you built up sweat during your workout.
At the same time we had also become obsessed with finding new workout brands on Instagram and seeing if we could find that one perfect legging! After having many failed squat proof tests, and constantly having to worry about our leggings sliding down during our workouts we realized we could probably design a better legging ourselves!
Who were we to make gym leggings – but more importantly who were we not to? We sat down, made a mind map of all the features we would want in our dream leggings and then we started! We started down many wrong paths – we even both bought Sewing Machines thinking we would sew all the leggings by hand. Lol that never happened. There were many hiccups along the way, but we are so proud of the product that we have created!
Arro is based out of Campbell River on Vancouver Island. It was founded by Farro Mackenzie and Alice Field in 2017 based on the desire to create something better. We promise to always strive to improve and create the very best products we can!
