Museum Of Ice Cream SF

You’ve been living under a social media rock if you’ve never heard of Museum of Ice Cream. The first location is in Los Angeles and the newest location in San Francisco just opened this past weekend.  I was lucky enough to attend before opening day to see it all first! When the MOIC opened up in LA a few months ago, my Instagram feed was FLOODED with beautiful pink photos, sprinkle pool shots, and crazy candy! Obviously, I loved and adored every single of them. I even contemplated going down to LA to go there. I was obviously ecstatic to find out that it was making it’s way to SF!  Keep reading on to see my full experience at MOIC SF, (most) of the rooms, and my honest review if it’s worth the whopping $38 per ticket.

Be prepared for A LOT of pink photos…

Down the ice cream vault … What is so cool about the MOIC is that the building is an old bank, so walking through the museum, you’re literally walking from transformed room to room. There are so many tiny details around each room, make sure you take your time to look at them all! As I’ve heard about the MOIC LA, it’s one huge warehouse type building. I could be wrong. Anyways, we begin the journey by going down some stairs into the ice cream vault which is “the magical door” to the ice cream magic! Super cute concept and definitely gets you hyped up!

Carnival Games! This room was so much fun because it’s carnival themed! Totally LOVING the striped pink walls and carnival tickets all over the floor. You can play ring toss on the whipped cream bottles and win prizes if you make it. Already getting interactive with the museum, so that was fun. Sadly, I didn’t win any prizes, aha. It’s ok! They also have screens in a few select rooms you can do some fun boomerang videos in and airdrop or e-mail them to yourself!

Scooping Bi-Rite … I think this was one of my favorite rooms in the whole museum! One, they served Bi-rite, one of my favorite ice cream stops in SF ever. And two, it is the cutest pink 50’s inspired diner with the bar stools, juke box, and everything! Ok, and don’t get me started on this ice cream flavor!! It’s called Strawberry Ginger Snap, an exclusive flavor made from bi-rite and holy yes, it is so bomb! I’m not sure if they’ll be the main sponsor throughout the duration of MOIC SF, but get it while you can! It’s like a strawberry ice cream with some sort of or cinnamon or graham cracker twist to it. SO GOOD! … Can I back just for this flavor???

Spell it out … This next room is a huge freezer filled with .. you guessed it .. more ice cream! The pink magnetic letters cover all four walls and you can pretty much spell or create anything you want. This room provides you with some mochi ice cream, yes, MOCHI! Choose your flavor, chocolate, strawberry, or cookies and cream.

Sugar high!! Ok, I seriously just finished my mochi ice cream and as soon as I walk into the next room, there is GLITTER COTTON being spun! And yes, they spray magical glitter all over it! This room is seriously so dreamy with the floating cherries and cotton candy clouds! Can I mention that it’s also blinding in here because of the metallic (but beautiful) pink wallpaper.

COACHELLA DAY 1

I’m sure all of you know by know that it was just Coachella szn. (if its not obvious enough from the million of social posts) I went to Wknd one and it was so much fun!! I am proudly a Coachella veteran since my first Coachella was last year. Coachella is honestly a marathon and it’s SO important to plan for it. I definitely learned a few tips on how to make the experience better. The time and preparation it takes to get ready is really overwhelming, but the buildup definitely adds to the excitement you get when you’re actually at the festival!!

I would totally write a whole post on my overall experience of Coachella, but it would honestly be sooooo long, so I’ll just talk about my outfit for Day 1! Coachella might as well be a fashion show, people are dressed up in their festival gear, girls put together the cutest outfits, and everyone just goes all out! I honestly love it.

Anyways back to talking about my outfit. I was highly inspired by all the sheer pieces trending, including sheer dresses and skirts. I love the idea of wearing pieces that aren’t everyday, so I leaned towards this daring outfit. Keywords that represent me: SLITS AND DEEP V NECKLINES! I looked everywhere online for some sort of sheer maxi skirt, but was having no luck finding one I loved. I ended up fashioning a sheer maxi dress and having it sewn into this skirt. It’s from the Coachella collection from H&M. I’d usually NEVER buy something made for Coachella to the festival, but it ended up being perfect! The fabric has really dainty and cute details throughout including lace and polka dots. I hit up my talented friend/fellow fashionista/awesome designer + sewer Amery (link to her Instagram!) to fashion the dress into this skirt with a high slit. For the bodysuit, I found this studded deep v one on sale from Forever 21! Unfortunately it’s sold out now, I had to grab a large since it was only size left. I ended up having to alter and sew the whole thing to fit me the night before leaving! Anyways, I thought the skirt and the studded bodysuit were two very interesting and complimentary pieces to wear as an outfit. I sinched up my waist with a western concho belt and matched it with these western booties (which were way more comfortable than I thought they’d be)

#PoshOnCampus

December has been quite a busy month for me. Finals, Christmas, and finishing up my internship with Poshmark, it’s safe to say I’m glad it’s over and now it’s time to move on to 2017! Before 2016 is over, I wanted to highlight the end of the semester Live Posh Party I was able to host as part of my internship with Poshmark.

First of all, if you’re unfamiliar with Poshmark, it’s basically an app where you can buy or sell new or previously owned clothing. It combines selling and buying fashion, but also is a social app. I’ve been a Poshmark user for about 4 years now! It’s a great way to make a quick buck by just selling some clothes or shoes in the back of your closest. Out of all the places to sell clothes, Poshmark is my go-to! Especially because it’s a safe and dependable platform. Especially for girls like me, that only wear clothes once or twice and never again! I love cleaning out my closet, ridding myself of unworn clothes, and finding new things to list.

You can find the app in the app store! Make sure you use my referral code HOPYC while signing up to receive $5 in credit towards your first purchase.

Anyways, this semester, I was fortunate enough to intern for Poshmark as their #PoshOnCampus Captain Rep for SJSU. Feel free to check out their website to learn more about the program here. #PoshOnCampus is essentially a college program designed to bring Poshmark brand awareness to our college campus. Every campus did different things in order to tailor the program for their campus. This semester, Poshmark worked with Bay Area schools, and I was lucky enough to work with 4 other girls on my team. We worked together to plan and host marketing events for our school, manage social media, and much more. To celebrate the end of our semester, we were able to host a huge live Posh party for our campus.

Even though I’ve only planned small scaled events, I’ve found it to be something I really really love to do. Our Posh Party was at SP2 Communal Bar + Lounge in Downtown San Jose. It’s a cozy and cute little restaurant with rustic features made it perfect for our little party. We had some custom made macarons from Macahhrun, a little macaron bakeshop that custom makes tasty macarons. She makes a the cutest little patties, and hand paints all the designs on! Food and beverages were served from SP2, too. All guests were given some goodies from our swag bags. This included some Poshmark goodies and some lashes and polish from Eyemimo, a local SF company that specializes in beauty. I’ve used their lashes before and love how light and natural they feel on my eyes. We also had a cute little display box for Eyemimo product samples that girls got to check out at the party. Other activities included raffles and a photo booth, where our guests can take home some cute photo strips. Overall, our little party was so much fun to plan and throw. Thanks to my #PoshOnCampus team for putting on this shindig with me!!

Here’s an quick little video from the party!
