While visiting in Newport Beach last month my sister, Dorie, whisked me away to a place she knew I would love. It's called the OC Mix, at the SoCo Collection, a group of locally owned boutiques and specialty food bites all wrapped in one easy, breezy afternoon.
We were joined by lovely Marcia, Dorie's mom and my birth mom (that's another story here).
We enjoyed a fresh, healthy, crave worthy salad at Greenleaf Chopshop for lunch. Dorie and Marcia created a succulent business, Broadway Botanicals, and vendor their beauties at Greenleaf and a number of other locations in Orange County.
(Shhhh a little secret...where does Dorie get that glowing skin here?)
These are just a few of the latest creations from Broadway Botanicals.
Dorie finds the most unusual types of succulents and vessels. I'm not surprised at her creativity sinceshe is also a fashion designer and was a lead designer at St. John for 21 years. She's designing succulent creations now and look for more fashion designs from her in the months to come.I have just the perfect place-Stylemindchic Boutique so keep your eye out!
We've been having a love affair with succulents the last couple of years according to Pinterest. For some, especially in colder climates, succulents need special care during the winter. I found this 'Winter care for succulents' here.
If you ever find yourself in Orange County California I highly recommend you put the OC Mix on your travel agenda.
Thanks for sharing sweet sista!
