It’s Monday morning and we’re ready to start the week with a little extra spring in our step after having a friend and fun-filled, beauty-centric weekend! There’s nothing like a great weekend to put the wind in your sails, so we’re sharing our weekend highlights, and then asking you to do the same.

Highlight # 1: NARS 8412 Melrose Boutique – On Friday, we spent the afternoon visiting the West Coast Flagship location of one of our very favorite brands, NARS. Not only did we receive a VIP welcoming and a tour of the sleek, modern boutique, we also had the chance to get our makeup done (and pick up a number of new techniques) from two ladies that put the artistry in makeup artist; Head NARS artist Phuong Tran and Katy Holland. Check out the goodies we HAD to pick up above – and stay tuned for all the details of our NARS field Trip!

Highlight #2: Supernatural Session at New Beauty at Fred Segal – Saturday morning we joined up with our friend Jen from My Beauty Bunny and headed to the gorgeous Santa Monica Fred Segal location for a seminar on natural and green beauty led by New Beauty Editor, Anna Jimenez and Chalkboard Editor, Suzanne Hall along with the founders of Arcona Skincare, Briogeo Haircare and W3LL People Makeup.

We had the chance to chat with fellow beauty obsessives and then spent a few hours roaming the incredibly curated New Beauty at Fred Segal locale. We swatched, sniffed and played to our hearts content – and picked up a few goodies along the way of course.

After some drinks with Jen, we headed back to Hollywood, ready to take on Saturday night.

Highlight #3: Dinner at Wirsthaus – We met up with one of our oldest friend and his boyfriend for dinner at Wirsthaus, a German restaurant with an impressive beer menu. We played games, drank beer from giant mugs and had quite a fun Saturday night!

How about you? We want to hear all about YOUR weekend – so big or small, share your three highlights in the comments.

    The hubby had to work Friday and Saturday, so I was on my own and took the time to hit up the stores he hates to go:

    1. Ulta run! On Friday they had Too Faced’s Sweethearts Perfect Flush blush on sale for $15. I picked up the Something About Berry shade. Stunning!

    2. Sephora run! Grabbed a Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed and NARS lipstick in Funny Face (Getting my radiant orchid on!). Also picked up a bag of samples and redeemed some points for a Benefit perk containing a full-size Girl Meets Pearl.

    3. Chipotle burritos and Game of Thrones wrapped up our Sunday. WOOT!

    I am hella jealous of the German food, @stef ! Wiener schnitzel is THE balls!

    1. Bridge to Brews 10k – fun times with fun friends :)
    2. Timbers vs. Sounders soccer game. Tied 4-4 :( But it was soooo much fun being there.
    3. Ate a delicious marionberry scone at the Farmers Market on Saturday morning. Something about going down there and people watching and eating tasty treats is just good for the soul!

    1– Grand opening of a new Gabriel Brothers, my favorite East Coast bargain hunting store. Scored a bunch of Michael Stars tees for $3.99 each!
    2– Basket Bingo fundraiser, where I got to see @glamazon56 , which is always a treat!
    3– Wore my new Jawbone UP fitness tracker on a long Sunday hike with the pups. I love a new gadget, although so far this one isn’t really telling me anything I don’t already know: I walk a lot, and I don’t sleep very well.
