{OC Local Love} The Cove is a year old!

Do you love a party? Cuz parties are fun in my book….especially ones that involve “cocktails, nibbles, polish changes, & shopping”!


and parties that include a food truck…a food truck makes my day!

So what’s the party for??

The Cove, a hip and newly re-purposed shopping destination on Newport Beach’s Mariner’s Mile, is celebrating it’s One Year Anniversary with a “Sunset Soiree” party on Friday, October 7 from 6-9pm. During the day, each boutique will be hosting special deals and offers, while the Seabird Truck will be in the parking lot from 11am-2:30pm making food that made them famous on Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race“.

Have you ever been to The Cove?? It’s on Coast Highway, a very cool spot…

Recently named one of OC’s hottest shopping spots in Orange Coast MagazineThe Cove kind of makes me feel like we have a little vintage LA  shopping spot right here in our backyard.
