Countdown: Whim Things 1 Year Party

I can't believe the Whim Things 1 Year Anniversary is a little over a week away. It seems like months ago when Amanda and I had the crazy idea to celebrate this accomplishment. It's been a whirlwind year, that we without a doubt would have never conquered without the support of our friends, family and the brands we both work with on our blogging endeavors. We couldn't be more thankful to the brands we work with, and to the new ones who've reached out, who have come together to help us celebrate.

If you haven't done so already make sure you RSVP (by clicking here) because it's a guaranteed great time and the perfect way to kick off summer!

zeroUV: Y'all know how much I love zeroUV's sunnies. I'm wearing a different pair every day and have at least four different pairs in my purse at any given time. zeroUV was founded in 2001 by eyewear enthusiasts, zeroUV has become a prodigiously curated eyewear boutique for the fashion savvy individual. My favorite things about zeroUV are their range of sunglasses and their affordable pricing. There really is something for everyone, at a cost that won't break the bank. I'm legit obsessed, I feel like I have almost a hundred pairs and they're constantly featured in my personal style posts.

SleekHair.com: Joan, the COO of SleekHair has been one of the biggest supporters of Amanda and I's respective blogs and it's not surprising she's been a huge supporter of Whim Things since its inception. Joan and the SleekHair.com team actually hosted the Whim Things launch party last June. I can't believe it's already been a year. SleekHair.com was founded in 1997 and jumping to present day is one of the leading online source of exclusive, quality beauty products from classic, emerging and niche brands. You'll be able to shop some of SleekHair.com's best sellers as they'll have a beautifully curated pop-up shop at our 1 Year Anniversary Party. 

Fresh Prints Photobooth: What's better than grabbing your friends and some fun sunnies to take photos in?!?! I'm a huge photo booth fan and am excited that Fresh Prints will be at the Whim Things 1 Year event. You'll be able to snap some pics with your friends and get photo prints and a digital copy to remember all the fun you has with us. 

Haute Shop Co: I love small business who support other small businesses (even better when both business owners are girl bosses #girlpower). Haute Shop Co. is a local Orange County e-commerce boutique curated with perfect on trend pieces that capture the California cool style. Haute Shop Co. is one of my favorite places to get fun, stylish and beautiful pieces to add to my wardrobe. One of my most recent style posts featured a beautiful jumpsuit from Haute Shop Co.

BECCA + Isabella Rose: Becca Swim and Isabella Rose are definitely my go-to swimwear brands. Amanda and I have been working with both these brands for almost a year now and couldn't be more grateful for all the love and support they've shown us. In my opinion, BECCA Swim is the romantic and trendy swimwear brand that features ruffles and lace, while Isabella Rose is the fun and girly swimwear brand with lots of florals and prints. Last year Whim Things partnered up with BECCA Swim to do a fun swimwear giveaway and then for festival season Whim Things partnered up with Isabella Rose to do a festival season themed giveaway. In keeping with the giveaway trend we've got going with these fabulous swimwear brands, we'll be doing a live giveaway at the event, raffling off a swim piece from BECCA and Isabella Rose.

B.Candy: Anyone who knows me knows I love candy. Anyone who loves candy needs to know B.Candy. I attended an event that Amanda hosted at B.Candy a while back and man oh man, it's like a real life Willa Wonka's Chocolate Factory. So many sweets and treats to choose from. They also have a bar set up where you can order cookies, cupcakes, ice creams and shakes. B.Candy will be at the Whim Things 1 Year Party with a sweet summer curated candy party. Make sure you brush your teeth twice that day because you won't be able to stop picking at the tasty treats!

Thoughtfully: Ever wanted to find the perfectly curated and thought gift set for your loved ones but don't have the time or know where to start? That's where Thoughtfully comes in. Thoughtfully believes that a gift should last long after the beautiful wrappings have been torn away. A truly thoughtful gift is not just a gesture but a memorable experience. I love gifts that double as experiences because that's what you remember years down the road... the experiences. 

NESW Wax Co: I'm a candle hoarder. Let's be honest, I have boxes of unused candles just in case I run out of any scattered around my living spaces or if I'm super busy and forget to get a gift for a friend (my secret's out). NESW Wax Co. is a husband and wife duo (Amanda's fiance is actually friends with them) who started out by creating candles for their daughters birthday party. WIth so much love for their home state of California, they create candles in hopes it reminds you of a special memory from that location and maybe, just maybe, you can continue to enjoy those memories each time your candle is burning.

I can't wait to celebrate with you all next Saturday, June 24th at zeroUV HQ. All the brands listed above will be at our event for you to take home, experience or hopefully win. See you all then! Xx
