Go America!!!

Hey Babes! Happy Hump Day ;-)
4th of July is just around the corner...2 more days until crazy fire works shows, BBQ's, parades, block parties, and whatever else people do to celebrate our independence. I personally can not wait for the fun and games to begin so I compiled some happenings that are going on in Los Angeles on July, 4th. I also wanted to show you ladies a super simple DIY nail art project so you can look extra patriotic AND cute on the 4th. 
Please continue.

Fashion Inspiration

Over-sized Vintage American Flag Print Shirt. The belt adds structure.
High-Waisted shorts and a printed body suite will look great on any body shape.
Denim Jacket with  American Flag Printed Fabric Sewn on Back.
American Flag Knit Cardigan- Can be worn as a swim suit cover up
Patriotic Man
For the Boys- Vintage Polo Ralph Lauren anything will work on the 4th

Cute & Simple Nail Art

Patriotic and nonboring nails, yes please. Step by step instructions are included, of course!

1. Basecoat. Easy. Done.
2. Paint your thumbnail red (Try Marc Jacobs nail polish in Lola), your pinkie nail blue (Maybelline nail polish in Blue Bombshell), and your three middle nails white (Chanel nail polish in Eastern Light). Let them dry.

3. Lay striping tape (you can buy it on Amazon) diagonally across your middle and ring fingers in the pattern shown above.

4. Fill in the spaces you've sectioned off with the red and blue polish, but don't let it dry all the way.
5. Take off the tape. Note* If you move slowly, you should take the tape off as you go. Otherwise the polish will dry into the tape.

 6. Use a small brush or a dotting tool to paint a silver glitter polish along the half-moons of your pinkie, forefinger, and thumb. Then trace the same polish along the edges of the colors on your middle and ring fingers to create a border between them.
7. Apply topcoat.

  Voila! Fin. 

Lastly, there is seriously a ton of events that are cracking on the 4th of July this year. I added a couple of my top rated things to do while in LA.


Party all day and throughout the night with Rhonda at The Standard Hollywood! This party will definitely popping with some of LA's coolest club kids. 

8300 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069. Rsvp and info here

Grand Park
Grand Park is hosting a free block party lasting from 1 p.m. until they blast off their fireworks from a rooftop at 9 p.m. They have a full line-up of musical acts performing. You're welcome to bring your own picnic baskets, but keep in mind that this is an alcohol-free event, so that means there's no beer garden and you'll have to pre-game or leave your frosty six-pack "at home".

Hollywood Bowl

The L.A. Phil Harmonic along with various other musical performances will be at the Bowl on the 4th and the U.S. Air Force Band will be playing some patriotic tunes.

Their festival launches at 2 p.m. on Friday, with motorcycle stunts and music performances, including the Liverpool Legends, a Beatles tribute band hand-picked by the late George Harrison's sister Louise Harrison, and teen pop star, Ian Thomas.
