Kimberly's Bridal Festivities


♫ Amber Mark- Way Back ♫ 

Dinner at Gracias Madre before Kimberly's bachelorette party!

This weekend was definitely one for the books! We celebrated our friend Kimberly's bachelorette and bridal shower.
We started on Saturday by going to dinner at Gracias Madre and ordering some of the yummiest vegan Mexican dishes! Afterwards we drove up to Hollywood and partied the night away, so much fun for sure, it had been a while since we saw each other so it was great catching up!

Sunday morning we had an all girls Sunday brunch with the most yummiest food and desserts!
Every piece of decor was beautifully handmade/DIY'd and they even had an ice cream station!!! 
Overall it was such a great weekend spent with these lovely ladies, we go way back! I can't wait to plan more fun adventures with them this summer!

Versailles Photo Diary



♫ The Radio Dept.- Pulling Our Weight ♫  

*Picture Overload*


Hey guys!

Hope you all are enjoying my France pictures so far! 
So I finally got a chance to visit the Palace of Versailles this time around, last time I was there back in 2012 I didn't get to go inside the palace since we were short on time,  but I'm soooo glad I got to finally go inside and check out the hall of mirrors, the rest of the palace, and the beautiful gardens!

Overall it was such a great experience, the architecture and decor was out of this world beautiful! Loved it! However, my absolute favorite part was getting lost in the gardens of Versailles and walking under the lush green boulevard of trees. It felt so nice enjoying the nice breezy summer day, I swear we maybe walked about a mile and half just exploring the gardens and we still didn't even cover all of it haha ! There is just so much to see and do but it was still so beautiful and fun nonetheless!

*Quick tip* -If you're planning to go to Versailles, try to buy your tickets in advance,  and try NOT to go on the weekend if possible! I also suggest arriving early to beat the crowd! ! :) 

PS- Don't forget to check out the gardens, a MUST-SEE for sure!











































Exploring more of Versailles outside of the palace :)
