Holiday Party 2017

Oasis of coastal gardens, twinkling Christmas trees, and the most magical sunset are a few words to describe our Holiday party at Casa Romantica. The views from the 30 gardens are indescribable and the entire center was decorated for the Holidays with some of the most amazing decor we have ever seen! Casa Romantica opened up their Octagonal room that has 360 views of the ocean and it really made for the perfect night. This venue would be perfect for so many special occasions or even just for a day out with your family and friends! The staff gives Casa Romantica a warm happy feeling with shared smiles and helpful tips if you get turned around.

Most of the babes wore Eliza J Dresses for the occasion and each piece was absolutely stunning! Eliza J pulls inspiration from current runways and mixing it with perpetually classic style elements that stand the test of time, the line is unique in that every look is not only on trend, but a timeless piece that transcends the seasons. Every print is developed in-house by the talented design team with the Eliza J girl in-mind and is truly beautiful, feminine, and special. If you are in need of a dress for a special occasion make sure you check out Eliza J’s latest collection!

We have to give a HUGE shoutout to all of our wonderful gift sponsors. The first 20 Babes to arrive received a multi-purpose combo set from Original Beauty Box, and we can’t even express how grateful we all were to open up the loot!

The two acrylic pieces stacked on top of one-another to display all of our favorite makeup and jewelry is every bloggers goal setup. Our own Danielle of @daniellealanareyes also took home one of their newest products, the Crystal Beauty Box, which is adorned with faceted pulls. We can’t wait to shop the rest of their site, and to get all of our beauty products organized for the new year.

Whish Beauty provided another of our giveaway packages, complete with three skincare items. They produce high-performing natural skincare products, everything from shower gel and hair removal products to eye cream and face masks, and all of the babes went home with deodorant wipes to test out. We love that none of their products are tested on animals, and will definitely be shopping their self-tanning line for the warmer months. Congrats to Stephanie, from @thepracticalwoman, won this awesome prize!


The Babes loved their new hair towels from Aquis. These high-quality towels are created specifically to dry different types of hair, from short to long, fine to thick. The ultra-absorbent material cuts drying time by 50%, which reduces damage due to spending less time underneath the blow dryer. They are also now sold at Ulta, making it easier than ever to find their products!

H2Rose provided two flavors of their delicious rose water, which is infused with saffron and natural flavors. Rose water was initially created for royalty, which is exactly what we felt like while drinking it! H2Rose can deliciously be paired with vodka or champagne for parties to mix things up, but we served it chilled as a lovely refreshment to quench our thirst while mingling.

One last special shout out is to Claudette for capturing special moments of the babes! We know how hard it can be to capture it all at events and she made a point to not miss a thing. If you’re in need of a photographer in Orange County you can schedule your session here!

Thanks to one of our members, Nikki, for capturing some of the moments too! You can check out her website and book her, here. We love you, babe!
