Venice Beach on a Quiet Winter Day

Top and Dress, Galimier. Shorts, GUESS. Sunglasses, Urban Outfitters.

I love how retro Venice Beach feels. I styled myself accordingly in this rad animal print Galimier top, and white cutoffs. I love dressing down a loud pattern, but this shirt would also slay with some leather pants and stilettos! My constant style goal is to wear less basic tee shirts, so this is definitely a start. Check out the Galimier site here for more resort wear inspired statement pieces.

I can’t get over how quiet the beach was this day. Emily and I literally laid out in the morning, and not a soul was on the beach. Our Venice-living friend laughed at us and told us a real Californian would be in a jacket pointing at us and scoffing, “Tourists.” We New Yorkers will do anything for the slightest bit of sunshine. Stay tuned for more travel – next up is Whistler, Canada and Seattle!

Abigail and I are big fans of Dr. Jennifer Levine! We’ve been into her office previously for SculpSure, which you can see here. This time we went into see the newly renovated space and test out a new photofacial process. She is located on 79th street between 2nd and 3rd avenue. The perfect Upper East Side locale. The space had undergone it’s own facelift and it looks beautiful. Very comfortable and chic – two things that don’t normally go together. 

Next, we went into the photofacial room and got set up. They put numbing cream all over our face, which felt funny, but also wicked cool. After that comes goggles and a gel protectant. Dr. Levine then took the hand piece and for lack of a better word zapped our faces. The feeling is like the snap of a warm rubber band, totally bearable, and over within a minute!

They wiped off the gel, and we were done. There is absolutely no downtime, and our faces didn’t even get red. That night we were already raving about how our faces were glowing and felt firm and smooth.

 How is it possible that two choco-holics have made it to age 28 without going to Hershey’s Chocolate World?! HOW!!!?! Thankfully, our bestie Bex invited us to visit her hometown in PA, so naturally the first two things on our bucket list were Hershey’s Chocolate World, and a town called Intercourse in Amish Country.

Thanks to Hershey, we were able to create our very own Wanderlust Girls candy bar! Not pictured above: a ridiculous photo of us in hairnets and aprons. Not our best look to date. You can even customize your own wrapper! I used a vintage Hershey logo and a black and white palette… obviously. Also spent about an hour bopping around the shops, which is basically dessert heaven and torture simultaneously.

Leave it to me to pack a full snakeskin suit for Amish Country. Thank you to Bex for finishing off my look with this insane floppy hat. Very reminiscent of Samantha in the Sex and the City movie. Where’s my guacamole? Okay, I’m rambling it’s been a long Monday. Also, still can’t get over these maple bacon doughnuts. This weekend made me gain 5 pounds, but I’m totally okay with it. PS how cute is her dog, Lola?
