REVOLVE REVOLVE REVOLVE! 

All I can say is I’m obsessed with this company for so many reasons. I’ve been dying to peak inside their store front on Melrose since I first found out that they opened. FINALLY they opened a beauty pop-up to the public that features a ton of products found on their site.

For all my Instagram picture loving babes, this place is pure Heaven. I know some of you don’t live in Los Angeles, so sadly you don’t have the opportunity to stop by and see what it’s all about. I’m going to give you a look inside so you can see why I’m so in love.

When you first walk in the door you’re greeted by all of the beautiful girls working there who are all extremely knowledgeable and helpful. You can ask them questions about the products, or how to build your own product box which I’ll talk more about later.

The interior in here STUNNING! pink velvet chairs, marble, and copper. It’s like I just walked in to my dream land.

Product testers are scattered around the store with tons of different things to look at. They have a little bit of everything for everyone. Some products are well-known such as Becca Cosmetics. Others are more unique which I love because you can find some true gems.

The build a box option is really cool because you can get products that you’ve been eyeing, as well as try some new ones. There’s a sheet filled both front and back that shows products you can get discounts on. Choose six products from the list and get a 20% discount on each one. You can also get it gift wrapped, which I of course did. You can also add products in to your box that aren’t on the list, but the discount won’t apply to them.

When you finish picking out your goodies, head upstairs to take some pictures and have a glass of champagne on their rooftop deck.

Floral Kimono

Floral Kimono

Fall is coming and part of my is ready, but part of me isn’t. I always love lounging around in a bathing suit all day, or high-waisted shorts. Thankfully Los Angeles never gets any crazy season changes. I got a little excited to pull out some of my fall pieces and decided to throw this outfit together. Lets just say, the decision was a dumb mistake. It’s still 80 degrees in LA and I was sweating like a nasty little piglet. Aside from my sweat filled body, the outfit was killer!

The tassels on this kimono are like an accessory on their own. I decided to wear very minimal jewelry to keep all the focus on the kimono. Sometimes minimal jewelry is the way to go!! These shoes are also EXREAMLYYY comfortable. Clearly the wrap around my jeans wasn’t showing off the shoes as well as it should, but they would be great with a dress.

As always I will link all products below, or try to find similar ones for you babes!

Malibu Wines

Malibu Wines

 

Wine, sunshine, and………Giraffes! What more could a person ask for. If this placed had macaroons I would have just died right there and gone to heaven. This is seriously such an amazing place that everyone needs to go to. Here’s a little tip DON’T BRING THE KIDS! Malibu wine safari is owned by, you guessed it, Malibu wines. The safari has a shuttle that takes you over to the winery after your done with your tour, or you can hit the winery first and then go on your tour. Lets jump in to some details so you know how to make this experience as amazing as possible.

IMG_0479

Here is a little info on pricing. The giraffe tour is the most popular option bar far because this is where you get to meet and feed Stanley the giraffe. The cost of this tour is $96 per person and includes a taste of six different wines, an hour and forty-five minute tour, and complimentary crackers and spread. The cost of the tour is per person, so this is why I say DON’T BRING THE KIDS! Make this an enjoyable adult day out. If bringing the kids is something that has to happen, then you can opt for the family tour. This tour is $55 per person and includes a tasting of two wines for everyone of age, lemonade for kids, an hour-long tour, and an animal feeding. This tour does not include feeding the giraffe, so keep that in mind. I personally would splurge for the giraffe tour because the experience was so neat.

Make sure to arrive AT LEAST forty-five minutes in advance to your tour time. Keep in mind that the safari is in the middle of the hills in Malibu. Traffic is always going to be a little backed up around that area. Leave wherever you are with plenty of extra time because the tour will leave without you if you’re late to it. If you arrive shortly after your tour has left, they will drive you out to catch up with everyone. You will of course miss out on what everyone else had already seen and done. If you are late to your tour by an extreme amount, then….that’s it. There aren’t any refunds given to people for being late. So AGAIN be. on. time!

When you arrive you’re going to head to the wooden shack that’s pictured above to check yourself in. When you get inside, they will have you sign a waiver and get your tour wristband. There are also complimentary waters inside, so grab one for when your out on the tour.

IMG_0485

Take note of this sign! the tour guides that take you out on the amazing tour do accept tips. Bring some extra cash or ask for their Venmo information so you can give them an appreciation tip. They do an amazing job at guiding the tour and not making the experience feel rushed.

This is your awesome safari car that you go out on the ranch in. Let me just tell you it’s HOT out there, so bring sunscreen! Tip number 2,000 for this tour, EAT BEFORE!!! you’re out in the hot sun, drinking wine, and probably going to the winery after. Neither place has food and you’re high up on the hill. Eat a heavy meal before you head out and make sure you have a DD or take an uber!

IMG_0508

There are three white wines that are taken on the tour with you and then at the last stop get to try three different reds. The wines are selected by the tour guides each day, so wines that you try on one tour might be different another time around. They also take different tour routes of the property. This makes it to where you can go on the tour a few different times and get a different experience than the first time around. At each stop, the tour guides will give you some different facts about the location and then let you go off and experience that area. You can take a bunch of pictures, feed the animals, and ask them questions.

Feeding the animals was seriously so much fun! The animals are all extremely friendly and have been handled by humans since they were young. You don’t have to worry about any of them biting you or being aggressive.

IMG_0621

I was BEYOND excited the feed the zebra. LOOK AT HIM!! I obviously had to tease him with lettuce so he would pay attention to me.

IMG_0629

Get ready…..HERE COMES STANLEY!

IMG_0754

Oh yea I fed him with like lady and the tramp and I think we both enjoyed every second of it……

IMG_0765

I even got a little Stanley tongue action and I was surprised to say the least!

IMG_0809

The final stop is where everyone will get served the above crackers and spread options. The olive dip is to DIE for! You can sit and enjoy your crackers and spread while enjoying the last tastings of red wine. Don’t forget that you are able to purchase the spreads, bottles of wine, and tons more inside of the gift shop.

IMG_0836

Once your tour is over….Don’t stop! Because why would you? Head on over to the winery via their shuttle. The shuttle is the easiest way to get there because their isn’t a parking lot available. Friday-Sunday the winery has a bunch of fun things like this adorable flower crown pop up shop by cake and punch.

IMG_0855

IMG_0924

I highly recommend grabbing one of these and letting the girls design one for you! They have so many cute flowers and designs that they can create.

IMG_0943

After you get your crown, head on over to dream pops and snag a yummy popsicle!

My level of happiness (and drunkness) in this picture is too much to handle! Seriously though everyone splurge on an awesome day in Malibu and go check out these places because I’m OBSESSED

Ouai haircare

Ouai haircare

There is no Ouai that you haven’t heard about Ouai Haircare and if you haven’t you need to continue to read this post to learn about how amazing it is! I’ve been coloring my hair since I was fourteen years old. I started out going bleach blond from my natural golden brown color, from there I went to dark brown, and from there I started highlighting and experimenting with my hair. So obviously my poor innocent hair has been through hell and back. Anyone who has ever colored their hair before knows that the first five to ten colors are awesome! Theres no noticeable damage, your hair feels soft and amazing, and it looks great! As time goes on and you color your hair more it begins to break down and become brittle. The ends become exreamly dry and for me personally, my hair got very frizzy. Continue reading “Ouai haircare”
