I was recently flown out to California with VS Pink & CollegeFashionista!! 
I had an AMAZING time and wanted to share my weekend with you guys <3 <3

I was flown into LAX early in the morning on Friday; I took the shuttle to a Hyatt by the hotel to meet my style guru gang <3 Annoyingly, we missed the PINK bus so we rode on the basic bus. It was so fun meeting all of my fellow influencers in person, especially since I was in collaborations with them before, and we had been texting for weeks leading up to this weekend. We were given a mini VS PINK bag with some goodies!! My favorite was the portable charger with PINK NATION MOTEL on it <3

We rode for about 3.5 hours to PALM SPRINGS, which was an amazing surprise!! Of course our bus broke down on the way, though, but the PINK rep's made it up with Pizza, so it wasn't a total loss ;) We arrived in Palm Springs around 8pm, got checked in, met up with some of the other people and went to our rooms. When we got in our rooms, there was a huge bag of goodies waiting for us, cute little plants, a cactus lamp, and a VS PINK throw on the beds. I was rooming with my friend Brittney who actually lives close by in Jersey :)

We went out to ride go karts and play mini golf around 9pm - we were so tired, though, so we didn't stay for very long. We had an early breakfast in the morning so we wanted to be fresh for that.

On Saturday, I woke up around 6am (time difference struggles) and Britt and I took our sweet time getting ready! Hair, makeup, cute look - of course! We went down to meet our babes for breakfast, and headed off to our activities. I chose the Gondola ride to the top of mountains; some did an ATV ride, while others did a hike. I'm not about the active life so I chose something simple ;)

The gondola was so beautiful, and fun, though! I went with some amazing girls, and we had such a good time bonding, taking photos, walking around!

After the gondola we headed back to the hotel for a pool party, which I was most excited for!! But we had about 2 hours to kill, so we took an uber to the infamous pink door! It was only like a mile from our hotel, and soo beautiful! I love the cacti outside the home, and the minimalistic vibes the house had goin' on!

POOOL PARTY TIME! This was the best part! Some food, a DJ, cacti pool floats, tanning in the sun, piña coladas, a VS PINK MODEL!!! So much greatness, I really wish I was back :( It was so amazing to just lay on a cactus pool float for like an hour, and just enjoy my time in the sun with my new besties!

After the pool party, we had like 2 hours to shower, and get ready for dinner! It was nice to lay in the cool AC room, and we rejuvenate after the long day. We went out to eat downtown PS at this cute place called Lulu's. PINK really went all out which was amazing, my mind was constantly blown. We had a scavenger hunt, but one of the girls in my group had a broken foot so we just gave up and got ice cream ;)

The next day (Sunday) we had farewell brunch at 9am, and then I pretty much had to leave. I was on the 10:30am bus back to LAX; my flight was at 4pm so it felt good to get there early!

A HUGE THANK YOU TO VS PINK AND COLLEGE FASHIONISTA FOR SENDING ME TO CALIFORNIA!!! I am so grateful and I loved every single moment of the trip!! <3 <3
