SUMMER SOLSTICE RECAP
What we've been up to lately. . .
We’re so lucky to have such beautiful weather year round here in Southern California, but regardless, when Summer rolls around and the June Gloom fades, we can’t help but feel like there’s a certain kind of magic in the air. Sunday marked the official beginning of our favorite season with the Summer Solstice, and we couldn’t be more excited. Summer means longer days, more adventures, and a packed social calendar! We’ve already checked off some exciting events here at Cleobella – here’s what we've been up to, and what we're looking forward to!
BIKINI BIRD X CLEOBELLA POP UP & PARTY
Because nothing says summer like a new bikini, we teamed up with the ladies of BikiniBird.com
to host a pop up shop and party to celebrate the season. Guests got first dibs on new arrivals from Acacia Swimwear, Mikoh, Beach Riot, and more, while enjoying fresh sangria and appetizers, flower crowns by Flower Gypsies
, Henna tattoos
, and live music by DJ Pretty Boy Paul.
LA VIE BOHEME YOGA EVENT
With National Yoga Day coinciding with the Summer Solstice, we felt it was only appropriate to host an intimate yoga class steps from the sand at the Cleobella Boutique. We partnered with La Vie Boheme Yoga
to host a trunk show to with the class featuring their gorgeous bohemian inspired yoga mats and accessories.
ANGELA AND JIM RETURN FROM BALI
When our owners Angela and Jim decided to start Cleobella, they knew for sure that they wanted to produce all of our designs in Bali, Indonesia. Bali is such a special place; there's an indescribable magic there- its artistry, its love-filled people, and its natural beauty are unlike any other place we've been to. Because all of our designs are handmade here, Angela and Jim spend part of every year overseeing production and working on designs with our manufacturers.
This past weekend they returned home after a three month stay in Bali feeling accomplished, refreshed, and excited for what lies ahead. The past three months there have been a whirlwind of photoshoots in Bali and Thailand and working on developing upcoming collections. They were able to balance work with pleasure by taking weekend trips to Uluwatu Surf Villas
, Gold facials at the Gold Dust Beauty Lounge
, celebrating Indigo Skye's first birthday with a blessing ceremony, and renewing their vows on Sumba island.
I think it's safe to say this Summer is off to a great start for the Bella Tribe, we can't wait to discover all the adventures that lie ahead!
