Last weekend we teamed up with one of our FAVE bloggers, the ever-so-fabulous, Miss Kelly Golightly, for a pre-Cinco De Mayo #FlamingoFiesta! And let me tell you- this girl knows how to throw a party!
Naturally, our favorite part of ANY party is the food. (Duh.) Kelly’s flamingo-themed fare was out of this world! With some help from her “food stylist” (yep- that’s a thing) Hope, these girls created a spread that almost looked too beautiful to eat!
From flamingo shaped watermelon, bowls made out of pineapples, and a tower of macaroons; we had plenty of pretty snacks throughout the day.
The drinks were just as adorable- in fact we were sippin’ straight out of L*Space curly straws! Kelly mixed up some amazing libations with two of our fave drink go-to’s: Skinny Girl Cocktails and Nektar mixers. A match made in cocktail heaven!
Stay tuned for our next #FlamingoFiesta blog post; where we’ll re-cap our second favorite part of any party…the fashion!

Hi loves! Kelly Golightly here and I’m thrilled to be hosting a pool party with my friends at L*Space on May 3rd in Palm Springs! I wanted to give you a sneak peek at what’s inspiring our Poolside Glamour Pool Party + a fun cocktail recipe so that you may be inspired to host a pool party of your own…
Pool parties are a great time to have fun and unwind with your best babes for a day of sunshine, sips…and swanning! always look to the king of poolside glamour, Slim Aarons, for party inspiration. And I love to include my Swannie Golightly and must-have ‘mingos.
Every good Slim Aarons party includes an element of humor and surprise and since our party is the weekend before Cinco de Mayo, we’re having a flamingo fiesta! Think bright pops of pink as well as citrus hues…you can see more of my inspiration over on my L*Space Pinterest board!
And be sure to follow along on Instagram for sneak-peeks as I prep for our party this week!
But for now, a cocktail recipe to get you in the mood for poolside lounging:
Palm Springs Punch
2 parts Skinnygirl White Peach Margarita
2 parts grapefruit soda
1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
Serve cold over ice + garnish with a lime wedge
See you at the pool!
As a sizzling summer approaches, it’s out with the old and in with the bold! Speaking of which- have you seen Too Faced’s latest innovation in lip color? It’s stunning! Melted is a lipstick that has been liquefied, so it doesn’t lose its pigment or shine while keeping a comfortable, flexible and cushiony wear. Melted provides the lasting power of a stain and the intense color of a liquid lipstick in one long-wear formula that lasts through and through in the sun, surf, and sand.
Turns out, these six intensely hot shades create bold, sexy lips that perfectly complement an array of L*Space bikinis! So we partnered with the glam squad over at Too Faced to give away the ultimate summer prize package! One lucky beach babe will win all six shades of Melted and six matching bikinis from L*Space! Own a sexy, beach chic look as you stroll the sands of Cozumel or sip strawberry daiquiris poolside in Palm Springs. Learn more on how to enter HERE.
