A Summer Day To Remember (with Stella Artois)

Summer is all about getting out in the sun, laughing with your friends and the ones that you love, and having moments that you'll remember forever. That's why to me, Summer is always the best! And being that I have become quite the hosting extraordinaire these days (I am known amongst my friends as the girl that throws the best little gatherings now), I wanted to host a Summer moment that my friends and I would remember forever. So I teamed up with Stella Artois, the brand who has a legacy of curating the most memorable hosting moments that live on forever,  to create probably one of the most epic Summer moments of my own.

Seeing as I live in LA-- when I think Summer Soiree, the ocean instantly is the first thing that comes to my mind. So I decided for my memorable moment, I wanted to rent a boat for the day in the Marina del Rey! Inviting some of my favorite girls who I dubbed as my "Stella Summer Squad", we took off from the harbor and went all the way to Santa Monica and back with the cutest little Captain of the boat-- Captain Alex! Of course, no hosting would be complete without some pretty decorations, tasty snacks, and obvi some ice cold Stella Artois drinks (that literally actually saved us all from getting sea sick!). Having the cutest little day ever and the most perfect #SundayFunday I could've ever asked for, my friends and I are already talking about a redo on this because it was that good!

Now what's going to be my next epic hosting event?!

A Down and Derbylaine with Stella Artois

If you followed my adventures on Snapchat from Friday (@iamfashionlaine), you saw that it was a day at the Derby here in LA! The Kentucky Derby was this past Saturday and while I couldn't be there physically, you know what they say, if you can't be at the Derby, then bring the Derby to you! (Ok, I may have made up that saying, but I think it's a logical one that everyone should utilize if they don't already).

In honor of Stella Artois' new Cidre drink, I decided to rise to the occasion and host my very own Kentucky Derby gathering with all of my favorite bloggers here in LA. (Stella Artois drinks + all of my blogger besties= the perfect kind of Friday Funday right?). I told everyone to dress #KentuckyDerbyChic and I knew they would all rise to the occasion... I mean, we are fashion bloggers after all. And that of course included my own outfit as well which meant I couldn't settle for anything less than Derby perfection with the ultimate Derby brands: Ted Baker, Soludos, and The Hat Shop (see links below).

When it came to venue-- there was honestly only one place that was in my mind to host the most perfect Friday afternoon Derby brunch-- Fig and Olive. Selfishly just because I love any and every opportunity to devour their famous crostinis, but also because the venue itself has the most amazing ambiance and vibe-- the day couldn't have been anymore perfect (especially in between the mini LA rain that came our way).

Of course, no event of mine would be complete without giving a few gifts to all of my attendees-- because I love to give gifts any and every opportunity I can. So on top of great fashion, delicious Fig & Olive food, and fantastic Stella Artois Cidre drinks, the day included the cutest charm bracelet making station by Spartina 449 where each guest got to pick our their choice of charms and band they wanted to create their very own bracelet. And on top of that, every guest left with their very own Sorial or Quilted Koala backpack / Ora Delphine wallet to go.

....I mean, I don't think even the actual Derby in Kentucky could compete with a day like this!

Oh yeah, and did I mention I had my own Snapchat Filter for the day?! Check it all out below!
