REPORTER: Alyssa Brown

 

Our crew recently teamed up with Foray Collective to send some major fashion It Girls off to one of our favorite Hawaii vacay spots. Perched on a rugged red lava cliff that towers over the white sandy beach below, the Four Seasons Lanai was home base for a series of photo shoots and adventures for a handful of Foray Collective’s top fashion influencers.

While staying at this (did we mention gorgeous?) resort, the ladies rode horseback through the Lanai hills, hopped a catamaran to the best snorkeling spots in Hawaii, and indulged in lots of acai bowls. If you’re about that life, check out the offers you can book exclusively through The Venue Report. Perfectly timed, the horseback riding and snorkeling excursions are on special till just before Valentine’s Day (hint, hint).

Here’s the DL from Foray Collective about their experience at Four Seasons Lanai. We do not claim responsibility for the legit FOMO you’re about to feel.

When we say, "We've been dreaming of this for a while,” boy, do we mean it. In early 2016, our office got a new nickname, The Greenhouse on 2nd, as our office space housed not only us humans but a variety of plants lives as well. Cacti staked their claim, vines overwhelmed the ceiling and us - well, we were all heart-eyed at the view around us. As the team grew so did our greenery collection and smorgasbord of disco balls. So why not combine the two for an epic end of the year bash, right?!

The Jungle Disco theme was set, but as planning progressed we found ourselves getting even more inspired by new beginnings, good fortune and looking forward to all that 2017 has to offer. The mystical feels spoke to our creative teams' nomadic souls and Gypsy Jungle Disco was created. After months of building up this idea, this pre-meditated party truly deserved the royal treatment so we brought in A MIHO Experience and Barcon for food and cocktails. To round out the theme, we partnered with local San Deigans and good friends Pow Wow Design Studio and Hostess Haven for magical decor and tableware. Lastly, additional greenery and florals were brought in, Eucca was a girl. Let the party begin! Welcome to our Gypsy Jungle Disco dream.

In Los Angeles, the coolest spots can be found anywhere. Now, that’s not necessarily suggesting that each and every diner and dive bar in the City of Angels is of equally awesome merit, though it honestly feels that way on some blocks. Instead, it’s more a curious case of finding your favorite escape in anything from an abandoned warehouse to a mysterious mansion to a parking lot.

So it doesn’t seem too surprising — if you’re from California anyway — that a spectacular farm-to-table experience awaits you in a magical alleyway tucked on the eastern edge of Downtown Los Angeles. Indeed, in the very colorful Arts District, Sarkis Vartanian welcomes you to his enchanting urban oasis, The Daily Dose Cafe.
