Fryday – a night in Beverly Hills!

Hi!!

I recently was invited to a California girl’s overnight in LA and had a blast. Its aways fun to connect with my friends who also happen to be bloggers! We get to chat about business, how we manage our families and our successes and frustrations. I miss the community of bloggers I used to have in Utah so it’s been fun to build these new friendships! And since these girls are all killer fashion bloggers – they have you get in a bed with matching robes for pictures. I was an active, willing participant and these Plum Pretty Sugar robes are to die for.

We stayed at The Beverly Hilton which was so iconic and absolutely amazing!! I mean the pool area lights up pink at night – what more do you need for a girl’s night?! The atmosphere is so easy, chill and uber chic. Also the fooooood. We literally had a 3 hour lunch sitting around talking and just feasting on the most gourmet grub. I was SO impressed with the food there – which obviously means I’ll go back. I only wish I had this caftan i just found on prime….YES PRIME. So there will most definitely be a next time.

My aviators here but I also found almost an identical pair for $12 here.

My dress and sunglasses.

We ate dinner at Ceccoinis in West Hollywood which was a recommendation from a friend. Appetizers were stellar but my main dish was okay. Ambiance is super LA and cool but it was sooooo loud! It’s kind of a hot spot but I’m just telling the real truth on it in case you’re considering it 🙂 After dinner was Sprinkles Ice Cream, always.

I blogged about these shoes earlier in the week and they’re just THE BEST and a fall must have for everyone. I also found a similar grey tone in an awesome boot for 1/4 the price here. Also can I just say about bodysuits that I TOTALLY remember wearing them as kid and was astonished when they made a come back. But here’s the thing….your shirt NEVER comes untucked. That’s huge. And worth it. I love this one because it’s actually not tight. It’s mean too be a looser fit body suit so if you’re going to start somewhere, here’s a good place to.

Pedicures at Olive & June only the prettiest place to ever get your nails done. I want to live in there it’s THAT good. Their nail art is seriously on POINT too and so detailed.

Worth it – we had the best time and I’d never been to Flywheel before. I’ve been wearing a hat I got there religiously. My leggings are a random Lululemon purchase which means you won’t find them online BUT I found these crazy cute similar (and inexpensive) ones – love the laser cut. Also my Nikes are on sale here.

And to end I’m just going to share with you something I learned and love about each of these women. I think online as bloggers we can assume a lot about people who share their “lives” when really it’s just a tiny portion of who they actually are.

Leanne // is hilarious and unassuming. Do you follow her on snap chat? Then you may know. She is witty and never at the expense of others – she is so kind hearted.

Kailee //  is smart, savvy and such an inspiration to me. She NEVER complains online but her husband has been in medical school/residency for 9 years now and she has 4 kids! I mean she’s a freaking rock star and doesn’t pat her own back about it when she totally should.

Lisa // is strong. You could easily think her life is “charmed” when in reality it’s just her perseverance and fierce love for her kids that has made her have a life that you might envy. She’d give you the shirt off her back – in fact she offered to lend me the dress off her own body for a trip I had coming up 😉

Merrick // is quietly confident. She is so humble but knows her boundaries. She knows that she’s doing the best she can and doesn’t carry guilt around her as a constant burden. She is light, easy and focused. She has so much I can learn from!

Omg this was long (as always) but hope you enjoy getting to know these women like I have!
