Harry Potter by the Bay

As you all know by now, we love Harry Potter. We're sure you also know, that we love attending concerts at the San Diego Symphony year-round. Getting to watch our third Harry Potter film concert, "The Goblet of Fire," was absolutely incredible. Not only is the orchestra music amazing, but being outside and right next to the water is always an incredible experience. We are always recommending the symphony to our friends, because it is definitely one of the best things to do in San Diego!

We were able to get a table with seats for this performance, which made it really special for us. Although we love the picnic seats, the table seats were a fun change! The Bayside Summer Nights concerts have just begin so go before Summer ends!!

Our outfits are from one of our favorite boutique stores here in North County, San Diego, named Liv 3. We love that three sisters own and run the store and sell the cutest clothes and goodies. We felt that these crisp white and pastel colors were perfect for this outdoor, summer event! These gaucho pants with flowy fabrics made for the most comfortable- yet cute outfits.

Beach Hangout with Red Bull Organics

Having the opportunity to work with Organics by Red Bull was so amazing! Pitching this beach-tent idea was accepted because we knew it would be a hit with our friends, family, and fellow bloggers. Since the color scheme was beach-neutrals, we knew the soda can colors would pop out for passerby's.  It was such a beautiful, relaxing evening, we think everyone who came had a great time. The ocean was our backdrop and view for our photos and throughout the night.

Harry Potter Symphony!

Our time with the San Diego Symphony, once again, was phenomenal. Apart from being huge fans of the Harry Potter series, we have grown to absolutely love attending these symphony performances. It's always an incredible experience to listen to the orchestra and be completely captivated by the music.

Although we did not dress up in the Harry Potter class colors, there were a few attendees who did, and it was so fun to see! During the performance, it seemed that the audience was so engaged with the music and film that was being played simultaneously.

We truly want each and every one of you to experience this for yourself, it's definitely worth it!! There are performances that go on throughout the entire year of all genres, so there is sure to be something that you'll love!

Ratatouille at the San Diego Symphony

Getting to enjoy the afternoon at the SD Symphony was so much fun! We usually go to the night concerts, but Ratatouille was on a Saturday afternoon. Since we love all things Disney, the cartoon movie, Ratatouille was so fun to watch. The orchestra performed alongside the movie that was playing, and it was absolutely amazing!

There are so many fun-filled Holiday concerts coming up, for us,  they're always the best way to get into the festive spirit! Go check out what's playing!

We got our hair done at Blow Pop Salon at Horton Plaza where they did our hair in some cute braids for the symphony! Our outfits were created with pieces that were currently in our closets, from stores like: Forever 21, Chicwish, Shop Salt & Arrow, and more!

2017-2018 Season Opener for the San Diego Symphony

Going to the San Diego Symphony is always one of our favorite events to do. We were so excited when we were asked to attend the Black tie Season opener event. Getting dressed up in beautiful powder blue and burgundy Jarlo dresses, Public Desire heels, and getting our hair done at BlowPop SD Salon, all led to an overall exceptional experience!

From the pre-concert festivities like delicious hors d'oeuvre, live jazz music, photo booth fun, and food tastings, we had a spectacular evening!

Guest conductor, Edo de Waart, Richard Strauss’ Ein Heldenleben, performed “A Hero’s Life” with musical mastery, Richard Wagner’s short Meistersinger prelude. French piano superstar, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, brought his own Parisian panache to Franz Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto, a fascinating journey of melodic transformation.

Tchaikovsky by the Bay

As you all know by now, we love attending the San Diego Symphony! Their Summer nights Bayside concerts are the best kept secret here in SD. Last night, we attended the Tchaikovsky Spectacular, where seven compositions were played of various composers- mostly being Tchaikovsky. The conductor explained how Tchaikovsky's compositions were very "ballet-like" because he wrote some of our favorite classical music pieces like "Sleeping Beauty," "Swan Lake," and "The Nutcracker."

Although the Summer Nights concerts by the bay are finished, there are always upcoming concerts at the Symphony Hall year-round.

La La Land Bayside Symphony

Getting the opportunity to attend the Bayside Summer Nights with the San Diego Symphony was so amazing. We were so excited to hear that La La Land would be playing because we love the Oscar nominated movie so much! The symphony played the soundtrack to this movie so beautifully, the whole night was an amazing experience for us. Having the San Diego bay to the left of us and the city to our right, the magical ambiance it created was something we will never forget.

We got to sit picnic style on the lawn where we could view the symphony and movie simultaneously while snacking on food and beverages throughout the night. We recommend all San Diego locals or visitors to experience a summer night with the San Diego Symphony, because it is such a special experience!

As for our outfits, we opted for a comfortable look wearing jeans and flowy Free People tops. To find brands, tap our Instagram photos to shop!

Bestie's Bridal Shower

We loved getting the privilege to celebrate one of our very best friend, Jessica's, bridal shower. We have been friends since birth, so it was amazing to be able to host this for her. Having all her friends and family from around the world able to come and help us celebrate was absolutely amazing!

SD Cake Pop Shop so kindly collaborated with us and created these amazingly beautiful treats for this special day. Our theme was desert cactus, so they made us mini cacti with pink flowers. The talent that went into these cake pops was phenomenal!

Our mom cooked and made gourmet appetizers for our meal, it was too delicious! From cheese platters to stuffed peppers and sautéed shrimp skewers, we could not have asked for anything more. The décor of sage and coral tones to create the desert-vibe. The gold and metal accents off-set the lace and ribbon streamers and delicate glass tableware. Party décor has always been something we love to do, and being able to create a beautiful event like this one was a lot of fun for us.

Any time we get the chance to celebrate love and happiness, it makes us appreciate even more all of our friends and family. If you have the opportunity today, we hope we have inspired you to show your appreciation to your loved ones after you read this post!

The Flower Fields

As one of our annual Spring traditions, we go to The Flower Fields at Carlsbad, and each year it seems to be even more beautiful than the last. Roaming around the Carlsbad Ranch is always fun because we absolutely love flowers! This place is covered with the most beautiful colors and variety of flowers of anywhere we have been.

We met up with our fellow blogger friend, Nihan, so we could catch up and take photos for each other. The dresses that we wore, are as much again. We love the way these dresses blew beautifully with the wind and coordinated with the colors of the flower fields.
