Last week I had my first work trip of the year to Sonoma Valley (just outside of San Francisco) for the launch of Lancome‘s new Absolue collection. The Lancome team has been one of my favorite teams to work with, so it’s like catching up with old friends each time we get together. They brought out about 10 other bloggers and everyone got to bring a plus one for the getaway. It rained most of the trip, but it didn’t even matter because it added to the relaxing ambiance of the trip. It was so peaceful at night listening to the rain 🙂
The first day we had the most gorgeous brunch to learn about the new products. Can we talk about this flower set up though??
Their new soft cream is now one of my favorites! It’s hard to explain but it goes from like thick to thin to thick, so it spreads easy, but it leaves your skin super moisturized like a serum.
Mountain views from our brunch!
The whole room and the Lancome products smelled like roses!
I got to bring my best friend Jen along for the ultimate girls trip 🙂
It rained pretty much the entire weekend at the ranch. It reminded me so much of where I grew up in Washington (Port Angeles). It made for the perfect lazy days, listening to the rain from our room.
After the brunch they set up facials with the new collection. My face felt so hydrated, I didn’t even wear makeup that night for the dinner because I felt like my skin felt so good.
They had our bathrooms decked out with the most beautiful flower arrangements ever!
They gifted us with these amazing cashmere sets – it was the cutest bag with our names on it and inside had a blanket, socks and eye mask. The way to my heart is all things comfy things like blankets and socks so this cashmere set was the best gift ever! ❤️
On the drive back to San Francisco we convinced our driver to stop at the Golden Gate bridge. I’ve only been to San Francisco one other time, so I was really excited to see it again!
Hope you guys are having an amazing week!
