In celebration of the new Nordstrom Rack Grand Opening in Huntington Beach, CA, I was asked to compose a post of my preferred haunts and rituals in my favorite neighborhood of Huntington. Me? Oh yes, I can help with this!
First, let’s get to the good stuff. Nordstrom Rack. Now, I am sure that most of you think of this department store mecca for your stylist clothing needs, but did you know that Nordstrom Rack has some of the best beauty deals around? Serioulsy, they do. This is the store where I stock up on my beloved Kerastase Oleo Relax, and Chrome hair products. I also count on the Rack to help me find great beauty kits at a steal. Last trip sent me home with Urban Decay 24hr Eyeshadow Pencils (which have now become a favorite) and Stila Angel Eyecolor palette.
After your trip to Nordstrom Rack, Huntington Beach CA, I suggest you visit the following to complete your day:
- Hyatt Pacific Waters Spa: I adore this little escape. For $35 dollars you can spend the day at the spa, relaxing in the hot tub and sauna or hanging out by the pool and watching the surfers tackle the waves below. They have fantastic spa deals if you and a friend want to indulge and pamper yourselves.
- Spark Woodfire Grill: After you indulge in the spa or pool, jaunt down the street to one of my favorite places for a weekend brunch. Mimosa’s and an amazing smorgasbord of food. I particularly love their gravy and biscuits.
I must admit to a tinge of jealousy. Ok, maybe it's more than a tinge. It's a big fat ball of jealousy. When I think of a cool chick that has it all, I instantly picture Blake Lively. The gal is stunning, has the perfect body, cooks, and I have been told she is genuinly nice….oh, and did I mention she is dating my crush Ryan Renolds??
Kitten eyeshadow has long been a celebrity and makeup artist favorite. This best selling shade is a flattering beige pink with gold undertones and a soft shimmer finish. It looks amazing on everyone, and is the go to shade for a simple, classic eyelid look. I use this personally and professionally, and find that it is the eyeshadow i reach for when I need a soft, illuminating look for the eye. It is an instant refresher, and a great color to perk up the eyes after a long night out about town.
