Social media is a funny thing. When used for good, it opens a whole new world of fun and friendship. Darcy Vandenberg and I met on Instagram and have been friends for years. We both happen to work with properties located in two different states…me in Washington, and she in Utah. I found a way to mix business with friendship when I was invited to fly to Utah and attend the GRAND OPENING of Mountain View Village in South Riverton, Utah with Darcy!
A great trip always starts with a GREAT travel outfit, and this one worked so well for me! It was 56 and raining when I left Seattle but was landing in Salt Lake where it would be sunny and in the 90s? I also committed to traveling with carry-ons only which was a GAME CHANGER, and now I know I can do it!!
Sweet Darcy picked me up and we headed straight to the gorgeous Utah capitol building. I love traveling to new cities and experiencing their history!
Mountain View Village
Spending the day at the grand opening of Mountain View Village was so fun. The property is gorgeous and the shopping is FANTASTIC. This location will host some of my FAVORITE stores: Evereve, Anthropologie, Athleta, and so many more!
One of the most fun things to do when shopping with a girlfriend might be going to Sephora! Your basket fills up quickly when you have someone sharing all of their favorites with you!
Mountain View Village had so many fun things happening around the property, from reallllly tall ushers…
to caricature drawings…..
to hanging out with “Maverick and Goose”!
Since we were staying right at Station Park, we had to take some time and do a little shopping!
A trip anywhere is always better when you can pop into Evereve and do a little try-on!
Station Park’s Ulta store happens to be one of the very few stores that have a full Chanel display! So much fun!!
We had the most delicious dinner at Twigs and a chance to sit and visit after a very busy day!
I had a very busy 36 hours in Utah, but oh so much fun! Head on over to Darcy’s blog, and read her version of this fun trip!
Thanks so much for reading! xx
