Coming up with a creative bachelorette party idea that vibes with your gal's design savvy and her desire to think outside the Vegas-box can be a tall task. And since we're always on the hunt for awesome ways for you to celebrate your bestie, we kinda freaked out when we spotted this stunning beachside camping setup. Spending a weekend on the beach with your main girls is always a lovely way to spend a bachelorette weekend bonding with the ladies. But wouldn't it be more fun if you threw in a surprise she'd never expect? Enter this idea: dinner party pop-up picnic in the sand, complete with a cute and cozy tipi. Get creative with it and hire a tarot card reader to setup shop in the tipi, or maybe pile up the pillows inside and make this into a cozy reading zone.

A crew that rents out a host of vintage campers, tipis, and bell tents, the creative geniuses over at Tinker Trailer Co. put together this insanely beautiful photo shoot with one of their cool tipis set on a Central Coast beach. The fur coats, the greenery-adorned tipi entrance, the geodes... I mean, is there anything more Pinterest worthy than a photo shoot that's full of mixed textures and boho-chic decor?

A wedding gown fluttering in the desert breeze is a stunning sight to behold. With such a bare landscape, all colors pop and the bride stuns as more heroine than model. Such a bleak yet beautiful background wholly serves the bride, so that her hair glows and her features radiate. She becomes the only thing that matters against the horizon.

It's Mr. C if You Please

REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

The Los Angeles of yore was a strange, ritzy affair, welcoming the rough tumblers alongside the class acts. West coasters knew the value of paradise out among the palm trees and a city always under construction, and if you had picked any brain of a mid-century Angeleno, he or she would’ve told you anything was possible in the future if you could protect what’s yours in the present.

These days, philosophy doesn’t always make its way into the luxury game. Too often, respect and relaxation aren’t backed enough by earnestness and empathy. One stunning L.A. gem, however, is as chic as it is classic, because no joint in town knows how to recreate the City of Angels’ old-school charm like Mr. C Beverly Hills.

“To all the ladies in the place with style and grace….”  If the month of May means pops of pastels, placin’ bets on ponies and raising a little hell with a beveled bourbon highball in hand…  all the while cocking your chic chapeau of course, this #BirthdayBucketList is for you. We’ve been chomping at the bit to put this gamblin’ gathering at the top of our #BirthdayBucketList but we figured in this case, slow and steady would win the race.

We wanted to unearth an experience worthy of your group of gorgeous gals where tradition took a bit of a turn… you didn’t think we’d be all big hats and mint juleps did ya? (Not to worry, both of these beautiful traditions remain solidly a part of this story) For this bucket list you’ll still worship at the alter of the Churchill Downs but your “Old Kentucky Home” is a decidedly more modern, chic and art-filled after party at relative new kid on the block, 21c Museum Hotel Louisville.

So gather your favorite guys and gals, grab those fabulous fascinators and head to Louisville to host a bourbon-filled bluegrass bash at the Derby and 21c – our cards are on the table and baby, they’re just showing hearts.
