It was the night of all nights in retail at the 2018 Gift & Life Instyle awards. The awards night started off with a bang, literally, as attendees enjoyed a performance from tribal entertainment group, Soul Drummer complete with fire dancer! Our MC for the night, James Tobin, kicked us off in style and the night ended with a solid dance session with thanks to The Baker Boys Band.
Life Instyle wishes to congratulate each and every single winner on the night. We are so proud of your achievements and cannot wait to see where the rest of 2018 and beyond takes you.
A special mention to By Brooke Creative who took out 3 awards on the night including product of the year as well as Stoned Crystals who took out both of their categories.
