First off let me just preface this with, yes I do realize that this in not real life, and secondly… how do I make this my real all the time life?!
The Vanity Fair Young Hollywood Party was Tuesday night in L.A. and I’m here to tell you that yes, it is just as magical as you might have dreamed it would be. As you know, I’ve been working with L’Oreal this year, and this is my third event that I’ve attended as their guest. Each event just keeps getting better!
We travel fairly often, and I have always been a notoriously bad packer. I mean… really bad. I never have the right thing, or I always have too much of the wrong thing. But this year, I have vowed to become better at it. So instead of tackling the entire “become a better traveler” thing all together, I’ve decided to take it one category at a time. First up was my travel cosmetic bag! And I’m going to be 100% real with you, this has taken some time. But I’ve got it down pat, and I can travel knowing at least my make-up bag is in order!
On Friday afternoon we packed up our weekenders and headed to the West Coast of Florida for a much needed weekend getaway. Last week was heavy with the loss of both our sweet Lucy and my great grandma (she was 103, ALMOST 104!). We were in desperate need of a change of scenery, and this trip couldn’t have come at a better time for us! We vowed to take time to sleep, read, and rest. And absolutely no laptops were allowed!
In November, Ryan and I spent 7 days in New York City for events, meetings, and a bit of fun. The entire trip felt like a magical-whirlwind! We were busy hopping from place to place and event to event, but each time we passed by Central Park we had to just stop and stare. If you haven’t been to Central Park in the Fall, you need to stop what you are doing right now and put it on your bucket list. It’s one of the most incredible things you’ve ever seen. The colors are so vibrant and the people are buzzing with excitement about the holiday season. It’s all When Harry Met Sally You’ve Got Mail-esque and it’s the best.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend L’Oreal’s Women of Worth event in New York City, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. Before attending the event, we spent the afternoon in a fancy penthouse suite that was overflowing with champagne and girl talk. Post girls day, the night was so surreal, and it ended up being one of the most special evenings as I sat in a room full of incredibly accomplished women while we celebrated a select 10 who have made service their life’s work. We did all the girly things that night: we drank champagne together, laughed together, and most of all cried off of L’Oreal mascara together. It was a night I’ll never forget.
Our trip to L.A. a few weeks ago was so dreamy. I’m not even 100% sure that I have completely wrapped my head around all the magical things that happened, seriously. But these girls right here made L.A. even brighter! Starting from the left we have Jade, Christina, and Sona, all three girls are amazing, beautiful and complete internet sensations in their own right, I just loved getting to know all three of them!
A few month ago Beth & Danielle from Palm Beach Lately and I started chatting about me coming down to Palm Beach to hang out for a weekend to experience Palm Beach their way! I was of course 100% on board with this idea, because um…. Palm Beach is fancy and I like to pretend that I am fancy… so we began planning one epic trip!
Take a peek inside for how to see what we were up to and how to plan the perfect Palm Beach vacation!
