Escape to Holman Ranch

Looking for a unique place to host an event, retreat, holiday party or get married? I’ve got the spot for you…Holman Ranch! Nestled in the tranquil Carmel Valley in Northern California Holman Ranch is absolutely magical. Wade and I were invited up to spend the night, have dinner, and tour the property and we fell in love with the history and breathtaking views. We need an excuse to host a party here! Maybe we can renew our vows for our 10 year wedding anniversary?!

HR-82

Holman Ranch offers the ultimate private ranch retreat experience and is a place where anything and everything is possible. Along with being an event venue and having all inclusive packages as well as the a la carte approach, they offer themed retreats such as Culinary Escape, Wine Lovers Delight, Sports, and Great Outdoors. The accommodations are super relaxing and luxurious enough for any event one could dream up. I love this place! There are 10 beautiful guest rooms, each themed with posters from old Hollywood movies and the entire ranch is PET FRIENDLY! During our stay we met a couple and their 2 adorable dogs who live in an RV (one of my “if I win the lottery” fantasies) and writes a blog called GoPetFriendly.com about how/where to travel with your pets. I was fascinated!

HR-50

HR-47

For dinner, our hosts Hunter and Nick had us in the carriage house for a catered family style dinner paired with Holman Ranch wines. It was so festive and I could easily imagine it being the perfect setting for a wedding. With the help of their event professionals, it would be so fun to create your own one of a kind experience.

HR-79

Heres a little history of the Holman Ranch. In 1928 a modest Spanish-style hacienda was constructed on the ranch nestled in the Oak trees and was nicknamed “Casa Escondida” or “Hidden House” and served as an exclusive hideaway for Hollywood celebrities like Charlie Chaplin and Theda Bara. In 1940 Clarence Holman of Holman’s Department Store purchased the ranch and converted it from a “gentleman’s retreat” to a resort which hosted many parties and community events. The Holman’s also entertained a bevy of Hollywood’s finest like Joan Crawford, Marlon Brando, Clark Gable and Vincent Price. In 1989 Dorothy McEwen took over, planted vineyards, founded the stables and outfitted the hacienda (which remains 95% original) to accommodate celebrations of all kinds. In 2006 Thomas and Jarman Lowder fell in love with the property and purchased it. They have refurbished and restored it and are continuing the tradition of hosting magical events with the help of their daughter and Director of Hospitality Hunter and son-in-law Nick.

The historic Holman Ranch is in Carmel Valley which is the perfect location as you are close to Carmel-by-the-Sea, Monterey, Pebble Beach, Big Sur and San Francisco. To inquire about having your next event there contact the lovely Director of Hospitality Hunter Lowder at (831) 659-2640 and let your dreams unfold!

 

Splash Spa Event

Last week I enjoyed a day of pampering and relaxation at the Second Annual LIVELOVESPA SPLASH event in LA. I was treated to a 30 minute mini oxygen facial from Intraceuticals that was so amazing I didn’t need makeup the rest of the day and met with a selection of the most exciting brands within the spa industry! The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas was there serving up signature cocktails to cool down guests as it was nearly 100 degrees that day!

I came home with a ton of loot and can’t wait to try everything out and share it with you!

temp tattoo
I loved this temporary tattoo on my inner wrist. I kind of want it there permanently! Do they make silver tattoo ink?

I met so many wonderful people and got to take home so many amazing products that I am going to have to start a “Beauty Product of the Week” post to review all of them! Here is a sneak peek at what I got! Stay tuned to find out how they worked!

Moroccanoil– I am already a huge fan of this brand. The Hair Treatment is amazing for all hair types. I have been using it on myself as well as in the salon for years and nothing else even comes close. It is the best leave in treatment. It defrizzes and adds amazing shine. If you have never tried it I highly recommend picking up a small bottle and giving it a whirl. The scent is very unique. Most people love it so I was thrilled to get to try the body wash and body shimmer oil! I of course love them too.

Aesthetic Ambassadors Crave Embellash Eye Lash Conditioner– I have never used a product like this before so I am looking forward to seeing what it does for my “average” lashes.

Trophy Skin at home Microdermabrasion– I love the idea of this. It is a lot more cost effective then getting the treatment done at a spa. Then you can put your money towards a different kind of facial that you can’t do at home! I got a Stem Cell Serum sample to try.

PrAna– This lifestyle brand had gorgeous workout/yoga clothes. They gave me a cute headband and reusable tote bag!

COOLA Suncare– They say that their organic sunscreen is so awesome that you want to put it on and they aren’t kidding. The spray on Pina Colada sunscreen smells so delicious and feels so light and its not sticky! It will be perfect for my upcoming trip to Hawaii!

PAVÉ Toenail Crystals– The lovely girls from PAVÉ embellished my big toes with their crystals and I loved them! They have stayed on for a week and my feet have never felt fancier!

Jandilli– I am trying out the face/body cream as well as the Brightening Eye Cream that I already love. The way the top pops up on the bottle is brilliant!

Clairsonic Sonic Radiance– I already own a Clairsonic and love it so I am excited to try their line of products with it. So far I used the AM and PM cleanser and brightening serum once and I already see a difference. My skin tone feels even and bright!

Knesko Skin– This is a holistic luxury line of face and eye masks made with Diamond Powder and 24K Nanogold (fancy!). I sampled the eye pads at the event and they were amazing. I can’t wait to try the whole face mask!

Circadia– This line not only makes skincare but they have a super soft, hydrating pillow case as well that I am already in love with. I am sampling the Moisturizer with SPF 37 which is fantastic. Lightweight not heavy and greasy. I am also going to be trying the Vitamin C Serum which is supposed to be life changing!

Hydro Peptide Power Serum– I am loving all of these serums. I am going to use each one separately for a month at a time to really get a feel for what they do!

The Comphy Co.– They gave me a pillow case too, which I love. This one is very luxurious as they sell to high end spas and hotels.

Vita Liberta– You all know how much I love sunless tanning products and these are top of the line! They have a long lasting formula that after 3 applications can last up to 2-3 weeks! I am on my second application now and love it. It goes on colored so you can see where you are putting it and it dries up fast so you can’t even feel it on. It has a very mild fragrance too which is perfect.

Travertine Spa Collection– I sampled the most amazing smelling hand cream that feels silky and luxurious. Such a treat!

What new products have you discovered that you can’t live without?

 

Show Your Style at The Beverly Center

Last week I attended a super fun and fashionable event at The Beverly Center hosted by Los Angeles Magazine and 3 of LA’s top Fashion Bloggers Aimee Song, Adam Gallagher, and Chriselle Lim. They did a little Q&A about current fashion trends and loves with Los Angeles Magazine’s Style Editor Linda Immediato then announced the winners of the Show Your Style contest. I met so many wildly talented and creative people and left totally inspired!
