Southern California

J for Jamie Blog | Southern California Whenever we go down to Southern California, we try and see as many friends and family as we can. We only had a couple days so we squeezed in quite a few activities aside from the wedding. For our weekend trip, I decided to give the Bare Minerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation a try. It's light and stays on so well, just like the powder foundation I normally wear. The best thing is that it doesn't feel cakey, feels natural, and stays on all day - even in the warm Los Angeles heat. I'm definitely hooked! Here are some highlights from our trip.

We drove down with our 6 year old nephew, Henry, who had quite and adventure with us! We spent the night at an Air BnB (Henry's first time!), ate delicious Mexican food and looked for seashells on the beach.

Before the wedding, we met up with Henry's two sisters and their mom (Chris' sister). We went to the aquarium to see the fishes and then had lunch by the water. We love seeing our adorable nieces and nephew - I mean look at those eyes!

After Santa Barbara, we drove to Los Angeles where I met up with some of my favorite girlfriends. We had a picnic and wine at the Hollywood Bowl and danced to the Robyn and Royksopp  concert. Such a lovely and much-needed girls' night out!

Before heading back up to San Francisco, we stopped and had coffee with my friend Hailee and her adorable daughter, Harper. We walked around one of my favorite streets in Los Angeles, Abbott Kinney, and did some window shopping.
