They say resting beach face is a real thing. It happens when you haven’t been to the ocean in a long time so, when we got the invite from The Wedding Artists Collective to jet off where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez, we accepted. Our final destination was a resort carved into the cliffs of the southernmost tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.

The views are endless with pools that blend into the watercolor hues of the ocean. Pull up a front row seat to the crashing waves and sandy beaches that are quietly tucked away from the colorful chaos of downtown Cabo itself. The Resort at Pedregal is I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E.

ARRIVE Palm Springs
REPORTER: The Venue Report

 

ARRIVE in Palm Springs is an immersive local experience that celebrates the design and tastes of it's surroundings, taking notes from the expansive landscapes and mid-century modern architecture of this small yet luxurious town. When it comes to desert inspired gatherings and pool side play time, ARRIVE has every detail covered! When they asked us to join in on their Fan Club Grand Opening weekend, the answer was an obvious, OF COURSE!

We had the pleasure of spending two days at this palm tree and cacti covered oasis alongside the guests that came to celebrate summer’s grand entrance as well as take part in the events ARRIVE had to offer. It was a weekend to remember complete with the launch of The Venue Report’s exclusive Luggage Label Collection. Missed the memo? Don’t worry! Stay tuned for our 2nd Edition Luggage Labels coming soon.

REPORTER: The Venue Report

So what is Fashion Feng Shui? Here's the backstory. In 2008, Catherine Sheppard of The Life Styled moved from New York to LA. She had no job set up, but knew that she wanted something different for her life plan than the event marketing path she had kind of fallen into. Right around that time, her mother (a Feng Shui practitioner) told her that she discovered something that sounded up Catherine's alley: Fashion Feng Shui. On a whim, she signed up for the 3-day certification course and flew to Boston for it. During those three days, Sheppard was in her element (no pun intended). She was the youngest person in the class by a good 20 years but was inspired and open to a world of possibilities for her style, career, well being, and that of others.

How does one figure out their style? What makes you different than the rest? It’s a big question. These days, there is so much out there. Pinterest and Instagram are chock full of outfit ideas, and we can all easily find our favorite bloggers to follow. But after a certain point, doesn’t it get a little stale? Sure, there are plenty of cute outfits out there, but sometimes when you go to recreate it, something feels off. What’s REALLY right for YOU? What makes you strut down the street rather than just walk? What makes other people look at you and go “she’s really got something”? Catherine has the answer and is telling all.
