In the evening I reunited with my cast-mates from a gameshow I filmed in St. Lucia back in September. I literally had never done anything like that before, but I had been experiencing a lot of weird changes at that time and needed a little spark to my life so I literally said yes to this gameshow and jetted off with 25 LA peeps, and now it’s been one of my top highlights of the last 2 years in LA. We grabbed sushi then went back to one of our friends spots to drink wine, laugh & dance. I seriously love those people.
We literally were living our best lives sipping on cocktails and laying out on the rooftop with all the best foods. I was definitely in a food coma, but in the evening we gathered the strength to take birds (they’re LA scooters that are officially taking over the world, ha!) in search of fireworks. At the Venice boardwalk we saw some in the distance at the Marina coast, but they were a little far. So we opted to go to our favorite dance spot- Townhouse. Which is a place to go only if you’re in a reallyyyyyy dancey mood. We didn’t stay too long because the place was crazy crowded, and then just chilled out instead- which resulted to me falling asleep and magically waking up to Olivia saying “Do you want pizza”- funny how that happens?
The rest of the day was spent by the beach. It was a nice 100 degrees outside and the beach was packed with people. I reconnected with my friend from college, Allie, who was visiting and then spent the rest of the night with Najla. We went to CAVA which is basically a Mediterranean chipotle aka: my heaven and ate Halo Top Ice Cream for the best of the night. The Chocolate Hazelnut Chip is officially my favorite flavor.
Speaking of, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts this week. Honestly, although the social media/blogging craze stresses me out about this sale (bloggers are ruthless) it really is such a good sale to find your staple items for fall. I want to be a good resource in helping you guys find the best stuff, so I’ll be doing a try-on-haul at Nordstroms along with a few different posts on my favorite items. The items I got last year will be staples for years, so this year I’m only looking to add a very few basic staples. I have a lot of clothes already, and I’m trying to declutter- but we all know how tough that is sometimes!
Here’s to a new week! I’m looking forward to AC, productivity, and BEAUTYCON! I’ll be there all weekend so come say HI if you go! 🙂
