How To Have The PERFECT #Galpal weekend

Let's face it - life can get pretty hectic and before we realize it we are just moving through the motions without enjoying the most important things around us. That is why it is so important to sometimes check yourself and make sure YOU are the priority in your life! This means that you have to have balance between the things that you simply want and desperately need.

One of the ways to find balance: Surround yourself with people that you admire and trust. I can honestly say that I am super lucky to have a solid group of gal pals that I not only admire, but trust whole-heartedly that they want whats best for me. I am one lucky gal in this department and do not take it for granted (I have had my fair share of bad apples in the past). That is why when a #GalPals weekend comes knocking, I don't say no....especially one of this caliber...

I spent the weekend at the Orlando Hotel in the heart of Los Angeles for an all girls slumber party staycation in honor of my Boss Babe friend, Kinya. We had an incredible time and it was sooooo what this girl needed. I cannot take the credit for coming up with these genius #GalPal weekend essentials, but will share with you what The Orlando Hotel put together to make our stay unforgettable and flawless, so you can do the same with your gal pals....

When we first arrived for the weekend they had every detail laid out to perfection. Seriously, it was so cute. We stayed in the entertainers suite that was perfect for a cute boutique hotel like The Orlando. It had the best balcony that overlooked 3rd street and plenty of room for all us girls to just chill out and relax. We had dinner at the BEST Mediterranean restaurant I think I have ever had, Cleo - located just off of the lobby of the hotel. The food is served family style with handcrafted cocktails that are to die for! After we finished dinner, we got snuggled up in our pajamas from Bed Head Pajamas and watched the Oscar nominated movie - I Tonya (so good!). The next morning we woke up and worked off all the calories we took in the night before (mine mostly from the naan bread and drinks) at Bar Method Los Angeles. This was my first time taking the class and I gotta say...it kicked my butt!! It was okay tough because after we were treated to mimosas and breakfast before we headed out and back to reality...

The GAL PAL PJ PARTY Package Includes:

The package for four starts at $650 for a deluxe king and connecting queen – a great value at $162.50 per girlfriend – and $899 for a suite and connecting room. Additional nights are $450 and $650 respectively. The package can be booked online or by calling 1-800.62.HOTEL.
  • One night’s accommodation for up to four friends in a two-bedroom suite.
  • Four bespoke cocktails at Cleo -- with names like “A Night in Marrakesh.” 
  • 15% discount at Bed Head Pajamas – with an array of themes like “Champagne & Strawberries,” “Sweet Tooth”and “Bold Strokes.”
  • In-room Beauty Goodie Bag with Face Masks from Credo Organic Beauty & Samples of the top three most popular scents from Le Labo Perfume plus a certify for 15% off a purchase.
  • Four, One-Hour Bar Method Classes
  • Four, $50. 00 gift certificates for Talisman Necklaces at Pyrrha

Don't be afraid to treat yourself, because you (of all people) deserve it!

A Little About Me

Here is the low down: I am a California transplant with some deep Texas roots. I came out to Los Angeles in 2016 immediately after I graduated from college with a degree in Converged Broadcast Media. I was chasing after that California dream to work in entertainment news! It is crazy to think that I now really do work in entertainment news and cover all things from Brad Pitt to the Bachelor on a daily basis. However, you won't find any of that juicy stuff here on my site. Here is where I love to share my other passions in life (boss babes, fashion, traveling, beauty...) and give you guys some advice I have learned along the way! I originally started my blog in college as a way to share my life experiences/interest with my friends and family. Since then, I have changed things up a bit and evolved my platform as a way to motivate and inspire people from all around the world. My site is a space where anyone can come to check out what is going on in my life and connect with all of YOU! If you are a twenty something millennial (like me), I know you know the struggle of trying to figure everything out while having a life too (AMEN!). I am here to tell you that while it is not easy, but can be done! Click for more...
