Secret Room Events held their annual gifting suite for the MTV Movie Awards in Hollywood. The event hosted some of today’s most unique, fashionable and luxurious companies, products and services.
Many gay celebs were in attendance at the awards, like “Drag Race” stars Trixie Mattel, Katya, and Alyssa Edwards, “Schitt’s Creek” creator/star Dan Levy and his co-star Noah Reid, and Pose’s MJ Rodriguez we’re there too.
With every Secret Room event, there is always a very special charity, this time around it was DoVE Project – Dogs of Violence Exposed, a non-profit organization created to support the end of the Dog Meat Trade in Asia. DVE was on site with some adorable doggies that are up for adoption.
New Way Horizon Travel gave away resort stays to The Marriott and Hilton Waikoloa, a 7 night stay all-inclusive trip, with fun activities like Eco Zip line and a boat trip, SKINFIVE By AVA MD was gifting Uplifter – radiofrequency microneedling to firm up celebrity skin, and Emsculpt, electromagnetic body contouring to burn fat and build muscle, which perks up the posterior.
My favorite swag at any gifting suite was actually seen at the Secret Room! Mister poop, Toilet Accessories was a fun looking plunger that kids will love. It actually glows in the dark too!

Oftentimes, with all the running around people do in West Hollywood, we become overwhelmed by the amount of multi tasking to do. So much of our daily attention gets drawn toward what’s happening outside of ourselves versus what’s going on inside. Because of this, it’s so easy to live on auto-pilot day to day. Often, it’s a major life change that shifts our perspective and meaning on what is most important to us.
Hollywood’s Vanessa Petronelli, Global Spiritual Leader and founder of Soul Aligned Success, calls these life changes “forced awakenings,” because they are hard to avoid. “They require us to reevaluate our current choices, habits and life circumstances and turn our focus within. But we don’t have to wait for a crisis to make a deliberate shift in our choices, actions and direction!
“In my experience, most people are craving a deeper sense of purpose. While often associated with our career,” said Petronelli. “It’s actually more to do with connecting with and discovering more about who you are in each moment. We aren’t trained to do this, so it’s up to us as adults to carve out daily time to gift ourselves with the time, energy and commitment to turn off and tune out external distractions and outside influence and listen to our inner guidance. That means unplugging from social media, Netflix and the news.”
Petronelli recommends taking a personal inventory every 90 days, that will help you find clarity, fulfillment and purpose. “Find a quiet spot free of distractions, bring a pen and journal and ask yourself: “What is most important and meaningful to me right now? Where have I been spending my time, energy and money the past 90 days? Is where am I spending my time, energy and money in alignment of those values? What do I want my life to look like over the next 90 days? What traits do I want to embody over the next 90 days? What do I need to keep doing? What do I need to stop doing? What do I need to let go of? What do need to start doing?”
I started this exercise myself and found it to be such a rewarding experience! It’s up to us as adults to carve out daily time to gift ourselves with the time, energy and commitment to turn off and tune out external distractions and outside influence and listen to our inner guidance. That means unplugging from social media, Netflix and the news.
