CR Travels: Malibu

CR Travels: Malibu  

Two weeks ago, Stan and I headed to Malibu for 5 days of fun with friends to celebrate a friends birthday. It was an amazing trip to say the least. From the beaches and restaurants, to the shopping…the West coast is one of my favorite places to visit because there is so much to do!

We spent time outdoors hiking and paddle boarding, as well as exploring the city and eating such great food. I love the culture of California and can't wait until I go back. Until then, enjoy a few pics from our trip.

Last minute packing the night before. Let's be real, every girl needs her options!
Of course I could never go on an adventure without my Discovery Collection kit. TSA approved and super convenient to add in your carry-on.
Hello Malibu!
EATS
Last week I told you about Mastro's Ocean Front, so this week I wanted to be sure and mention Malibu Farm. Located at the end of the Malibu Pier, this place serves organic, fresh, REAL food. The food was excellent, service exceptional, and the views were amazing. I highly recommend visiting Malibu Farm if you find yourself in the area.
EXPLORE
We had such a great time doing things outdoors. The hiking trails were brutal, but the views were worth it!
CELEBRATE
As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, we went with our friends to celebrate a birthday. This is me with my dear friend Lisa who we celebrated all week! 

Happy Birthday, Lisa! 

It was a very memorable, relaxing trip and I can't wait until my next adventure! Of course I'll be sure to share it with all of you. What are some of your favorite places to visit in California? Tell me below.

Colleen's Summer Essentials

Posted by Colleen Rothschild on

I love SUMMER!

Summer is a great time for hanging out with friends and family!

I--like most of you--am getting ready for this 4th of July weekend and wanted to share all of my favorite essentials whether you are poolside or have your toes in the sand! 

Sunglasses: I love my Chanel glasses! They feel classic, yet glamorous and are great for everyday.

Drink: I love all things Sparkling ICE. My favorite flavor is the Pink Grapefruit and my fridge is always stocked with this delicious refreshing drink! Definitely helps beat this Texas heat!;)

Book: Currently I am reading Quantum Wellness by Kathy Freston, and I love it! What summer reads do you recommend? 

Magazine: Who doesn’t love a magazine why they are relaxing pool side or at the beach? I love reading MORE Magazine—it gives me an update on all things style, health, and work in one.

Skin Protection: Protecting your skin from that hot sun is so important to keeping it from getting spotty and wrinkly! I use my Daily Defense SPF 25 on my face religiously! Let’s face it, really tanned skin can make you look older. So let’s not do that, ok?  

Style: While I am protecting myself from the sun I like to stay looking cute! This JCREW fedora is one of my favorite go-to items as I head out for a day by the pool or beach! Grab a cute hat and cover-up  to match your suit and you are good to go all day!

Beauty Water: Definition of refreshing! You know that sticky feeling when you are out in the sun for a while? One spritz of this leaves my skin cool, hydrated and with a healthy glow.

What are your essentials for this 4th of July weekend?
