A Galentine's Day Celebration with Style Collective Sisters

PC: @goirishphotog
I got to meet up my Style Collective Sisters this weekend for a Galentine's Day celebration! Our festive Valentine’s celebration was held at Shade Hotel, Redondo Beach. Located in the beautiful Redondo Beach marina, there’s no more perfect venue to toast with my Style Collective sisters in high style. Set along the waterfront, this brand new property captures the essence of the South bay vibe. Relaxed and family friendly, this is one hotel that has perfected the customer service experience. Greeting us with a warm welcome and a sparkling champagne toast, the staff at The Shade embodies the essence of hospitality.  Sea Level, offers both waterfront dining or a casual bar with views of the marina. Light, bright and cozy, Sea Level bar is a great place for a casual evening.

In true fashion blogger style, SC Sisters were decked out in various shades of red, pink and white and on a mission to celebrate Galentine’s Day with a splash. The Shade made us feel so welcome and pampered us with a delicious dining experience overlooking the scenic waterfront. The Sea Level Restaurant is filled with comfy sofas and fire pits and it wasn’t long before the sofas were overflowing with colorful fashion bloggers excitedly chattering away. Serving up the crispiest, mouth watering pizza loaded with carmelized onions and the tastiest goat cheese, the women were definitely enjoying the treats along with the atmosphere. Alongside, our waiters brought out the freshest beet salad with arugula pesto and toasted pistachios to top it off. The piece de resistance was a tasty citrus cured hamachi with one of the most beautiful presentations in town. We laughed and we toasted as we began forming new connections, sharing our fashion blogging and life journeys together.

We laughed and we toasted as we began forming new connections, sharing our fashion blogging and life journeys together. I was so happy to be able to connect with these amazing ladies. Some of which, I've only "met" online previously. Lots of photos, snapchats, boomerangs and videos for instastories were taken of course. Can we talk about these amazing balloons? Balloon Celebrations delivered an enormous truckload of balloons. As balloons always lift the spirits, we all worked together to set up all the massive balloon decorations. Balloon Celebrations went out of their way to ensure the event was a success by setting a lively and fun vibe. We had letters that spelled out "Style Collective" and "XOXO" which made for the perfect photo op! Being surrounded by all these beautiful gold balloons was a dream come true! There was also an amazing massive heart balloon sculpture!

It wouldn’t be a fashion blogging event without raffle prizes and goodie bags filled with treasures. Jessica @petitestylescript, and the creator of www.petitestylescript.com, made sure we were taken care of with lots of sponsored treasures. She is a big fan of Dermalogica and won us all over with gifts of their daily superfoliant. I can't wait to try this stuff! Core Water provided the natural refreshments with their classic water as well as several fruit flavored varieties. Core is known for it’s high quality reverse osmosis process which helps to balance the alkalinity in our bodies. The precious edible centerpieces were handmade for us by a fabulous company called, Lette Macarons. These special displays were made of the lightest and tastiest macaroons. In the most vivid colors representative of the holiday, they definitely set the tone for a festive afternoon. Each tasty creation is hand made with tender loving care.  Rounding out the gift bags was a gift from Bloomingdale’s and the Kiehl’s counter. Fond of natural products, Kiehl’s has been a leader in the field with products that help you to look and feel beautiful in the most natural way possible.

Joining Style Collective is one of the best decisions I have ever made. As #GirlBosses, we’ve developed a bond like no other united in bringing beauty to the world and to one another. Fashion is a powerful medium and we are delighted to be on this journey together. Women of all kind are always welcomed with open arms. I love having this community of supportive women who are never competing, and always rooting for each other. Can't wait for the next meet up event!
