An LA visit
I snuck away for a long weekend in LA a few weeks ago to attend a bridal shower for one of my dearest friends from childhood (we met in 5th grade!). Guests were asked to bring their favorite beauty products for the bride-to-be, and I loved seeing all of the can't-live-without products that she ended up with. She won't have to buy make up and beauty products for a few years! I brought Benefit's Benetint and They're Real Mascara, Josie Maran Argan Oil and Bert's Bee's Tinted Chap Stick, and tucked it all inside the monogrammed toiletry bag/travel pouch I made for her honeymoon.
It was an incredible visit filled with quaility time with the girls from home (with lots of late night reminiscing), a visit with a friend I met in Chicago who moved to Redondo Beach (I wrote about our last visit here), shopping on Abbot Kinney, visits with family in Santa Monica, and a stop at NEWBEAUTY at Fred Segal, where my perfumes are carried. The trip couldn't have been more amazing.
Here are a few shots from the visit...

I love cake stands, so was drawn to this stack at Bountiful
