Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I think it should be a rule that you take a girl's trip at least once every few months. One whole weekend, dedicated to dressing up, going out, shopping, laughing and eating. Life gets so crazy and sometimes....you just need a little girl time. With all the madness of the wedding going on, a mini vacation with my sisters was exactly what I needed a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately our plans to go to Napa Valley fell through, so we opted for Orange County instead. 

It was a stay-cation. And it was awesome. 

I love being able to explore new parts of old familiar cities, so I was all about spending our Saturday at The OC Mix when my sister suggested it. I used to live in Orange County (5 years to be exact), so finding this cool new spot in my old city made me pretty happy.

The OC Mix, located within Costa Mesa SOCO, will feed your entertainment, decor, fashion and food cravings. I am a lover of all those things (who isn't?), so I was basically in heaven. They have everything ranging from entertainment and event speciality stores, home decor, unique boutiques and amazing restaurants. Here's some pictures from our day there!

Gorgeous outdoor set up and future backyard inspiration.

I highly recommend this as a cool spot to spend the day wandering around with your girlfriends, going on a day date or have some quality me-time. I'll definitely be back when it comes time to furnish our new place after the wedding! Or when my cupcake craving comes back....

What are some of your favorite spots??
