Art of Exchange + Awesome Giveaway!!

Okay, remember that super cool weekend I was fantasizing about...the Art of Exchange at The Ace Palm Springs with Kimmel Kids? Well, here are some images back from the weekend...seriously, don't you want to book your tickets right now for the next one? and if you're feeling a wee bit sad about missing this one hang tight, scroll down and check out the fantastic giveaway you could win!!

S’mores, yum!!

Check this out!!
Confetti System Pinatas & Movie night under the stars
No one has a pair like this!

The 48-hour adventure included everything from s'mores under the stars to a family movie night with luminescent glow sticks. The art workshops ranged from designing your own Converse sneakers, to macramé, dioramas, and jewelry design made of scraps of cloth donated by American Apparel. Parents joined the activities too, as one proud mom told us her scrap necklace was inspired by vintage Lanvin. Evenings were spent with family style dinners (Taco night being the favorite) gathered around the camp fire.

You can check out future dates at Kimmel Kids
