There are TWO LA-area ELLE beauty events happening this week— you can join for one or for both via a simple RSVP! Just make sure you mention the preferred salon in the subject line. The first event is on Wednesday, May 28th in DTLA, and the second one is on Thursday, May 29th at the Glendale Galleria mall. DJ Tessa Young will be DJ'ing both events, and guests will enjoy drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and gift bags. [Photo by Rachel Murray]
Memorial Day is a wonderful little calendar gift that too many of us take for granted. It is a holiday that should be recognized and celebrated for many reasons. The obvious and most blatant, of course, is the celebration of men and women who have passed while serving and protecting our country. But Memorial Day also marks the commencement of summer and generously provides (most of) us a three day weekend. While some of us may have been proactive and booked great weekend getaways, Angelenos who'll be staying home need not worry: Los Angeles will be just as poppin’ as the rest of the West Coast. So click through for all the best day, night, and day-to-night bashes happening this MDW!
Summer is just around the corner and we all know what that means. It’s the best time of the year for everyone’s favorite between-meals meal: brunch. During the summer, it is almost always acceptable to indulge in a late-morning/early-afternoon culinary experience every weekend. Or maybe every day? Whatever you’re into, we’re not here to judge. However, we are here to help. Check out this list of some of LA’s finest hot spots where you can get your brunch on.

Ummm...whaaaat? You guys! We are way too excited for this year's FYF Fest. The line-up is a sort of mix of the last two years of Coachella (which is fine by us) with some heavy hitters in there, and the VENUE! Personally, the dust at the fest's usual park located venue in Chinatown is NOT our fav, so we were so so happy to see that this year it'll be held at the L.A. Sports Arena. Side tip: check out music act Darkside (a semi-new fav). You won't regret it. Yay! See ya'll there. Psst: tickets on sale Thursday, May 22nd at 12 p.m. PDT right HERE.
- Just when we thought nothing could ever surpass the heat of Ryan Gosling, Los Angeles slapped us across the face and surprised us with this May inferno. If you’re anything like us, this weather can bring out your inner bitch: between fighting the running foundation, blinking through dripping mascara, and smiling through chapped lips, it’s all a recipe for disaster. For the safety of all humanity we must find ways to stay cool. So grab your bikini and gal pals and head to these luxurious pool destinations. All over Los Angeles, there are top-notch pools for you to grab a cocktail and relax for the day. If you’re in a party mood, there are also high-end pools for you to grab a few drinks and party all day and into the night. Click through to find out how to combat the heat and spend the day in peace. And, in the inspirational words of wise hip hop artist, Nelly, “Its gettin’ hot in here (so hot), So take off all your clothes” (but maybe leave on the bikini).
