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!
Jade is a make-up artist beauty influencer, her instagrams are unreal… and her contouring skills are like no other! She’s stunning and literally as sweet as they come!
Christina is an gorgeous fashion and lifestyle blogger and is just plain cool. Like the very essence of cool. Her style is sophisticated and effortlessly Parisian. We became besties by the end of our trip… you can clearly see why!
Sona is a beauty and fashion blogger, her youtube videos are addicting and she’s even more gorgeous in real life! Not only is she super lovely, but she’s also launching her own beauty line soon!
We are all a part of the L’Oreal League this year and getting to know them has been amazing so far! I can’t wait for our next adventure!
But first, let’s talk about this one…
The L’Oreal team arranged a day of fun and photo shoots in L.A. for us girls, and honestly the photos turned out amazing, but the day itself was even better! We began the day with full hair in make-up in our suite at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills. Once we were all glammed up, we headed out in a fleet (yes, FLEET!) of vintage cars! We each had a car that matched our look for that day, and our first stop was Rodeo Drive.
I hadn’t ever been to L.A. before so all the things I knew about it I learned from the movies. Rodeo is the 5th Avenue of the West Coast, everything you could ever want is right there in between the palm trees. The perfect location for our first shot and a little window shopping of course!
Next, we hopped into our cars, and headed down the Pacific Coast Highway with the top down out to Malibu for another shoot on location. They don’t call it the most beautiful drive in the world for no good reason. We couldn’t of asked for a better day, the sun was shining and the breeze was warm. It was the PERFECT California day.
One thing I loved so much about us girls is how all of our styles are so different, but perfectly complement one another. The shots of us together are just so fun, girly, and totally portray each of our personalities.
After Malibu, our next stop was The Broad, which may in fact have been my very favorite thing of the entire day. We got a private tour of The Broad museum -Beyonce and Jay-Z style. They sneaked us in the back entrance, unlocked the doors, and flipped the lights on just for us. It was seriously unreal. I have never experienced anything quite like it. Just standing in front of so many important pieces alone in a quite museum was enough to give us all goosebumps! I loved every second of our trip to The Broad.
These are just a few highlights from the trip and I could keep writing all day! But like I said, magical. I am not sure we will ever be able to top this L.A. trip… but we are sure going to try!
