I met my friends for drinks in Downtown Long Beach at SIP bar and lounge inside the Renaissance Hotel. I worked there a few years ago when it was called Tracht's, in partnership with renowned chef Suzanne Tracht, and I always loved the outdoor patio and fire pit. Now that I'm no longer an employee I can go there for leisure.

Tracht's was really nice with plush leather chairs and minimal lighting, but very linear. Sip is much better, in my opinion -dark with funky uplighting, Animal print armchairs and a less-linear layout. It's a better fit for the DT Long Beach crowd. There is a also a really cool glass wine cellar-type-thing, that gives you a view of all the bar's wine stock.

It was a warm evening, perfect for sitting outside while we each drank a Cuban Society (like a raspberry mojito) and munched on spicy chicken wings, garlic fries and potato wedges topped with crab meat.

 

We had a great time catching up, helping Ashley plan a romatic weekend for her BF's birthday, and watching the street scene. We ran into several nearby events, including a private birthday party at Sip (that we were invited to kuz we're so awesome) and an annual jazz festival on Ocean and Pine. Luckily we showed up dressed for a night out!

BTW, I love my H&M heels. I've only worn them twice so they're comfortable as long as I'm sitting down!

Vivid by Youngblood Mineral Comestics

At the Think Thru Fashion Accessory Swap Soiree a couple weeks ago, I got a mini-makeover from YoungBlood Mineral Cosmetics. All attendees were gifted with what was described to me as a "summer pink" lipstick called Vivid, I'd been waiting for an opportunity to give the color a test run and I finally got my chance the other day.

The color went on thick and rich, so I had to blot a few times until I got a tint I was comfortable with. The lipstick was long-lasting and I only had to reapply a couple of times throughout the day. A lighter tint is good for the office or any daytime activities, but I would definitely wear it a little heavier for the nightlife.

It's not secret that I'm really anxious for Fall, so this fun pink was exactly what I needed achieve the summer-casual look that I was going for that day, Although this is isnt typically a color I would pick for myself, I was really comfortable wearing it so it's managed to warm it's way into my make-up bag. Overall I'm satisfied with the product, so I'll have to see what other amazing products Youngblood has to offer for... for the fall of course!

Girl's Day Out!

Earlier this week, my cousin Myla and I had a girl's day out at the Grove and Farmer's Market in L.A. I love that the Grove is so close to my apartment (walking distance if I'm feeling energetic). They always have lots a great family-oriented events like movies in the park, concerts and promotional events for upcoming movies and books.

Myla and I spent the afternoon perusing Fresh, Nordstrom and Guess by Marciano. We cruised the perfume aisles sampling the newest scents, played around at the make-up counters, and tried on the most expensive Jimmy Choo, YSL and Mui Mui stilettos we could find.

I was really excited by the Eat, Pray, Love fragrance and candle collection at Fresh, inspired by the movie starring Julia Roberts. The fragrances are mostly sold out, but since this store is hosting a special event (which we signed up for) next week  they'll be receiving an additional shipment and I was able to special order the very pretty, floral Love scent.

After a busy day trying on shoes and dresses, Myla and I headed over to the Farmers Market for some Chinese food (that turned out to be over-priced and not very good) and some pastries that were soooo amazing (Oreo Cake for her, Red Velvet for me). After our big meal we were totally pooped, so we called it a day, but what a great way to spend a Monday afternoon. We had such a good time that highly recommend this girly day out to all of you! Have fun!

On me: Old Navy denim (distressed by me), Heritage top, Forever21 sleeveless cardi and knit Cap, Loeffler Randall for Target bag

On Myla (top picture): all Guess by Marciano!

I knew my attempts to disctract myself from fall fashion werent going to work. I came across this amazing slideshow of J.Crew Fall '10 styles over at FabSugar and I was yearning for crisp October weather all over again.

I headed over to Polyvore so I could share the fall trends I'm most looking forward to:

Did I miss anything? What trends are you looking forward to this fall?
