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.
