not to brag or anything, but we had a super FUN week! here’s what went down…a couple members of the ban.do girl gang took a working trip to las vegas to check out magic and hang with our besties at bc footwear (spoiler alert!). we also hit up our favorite las vegas hot spots including the neon museumthe pinball hall of fame, and the peppermill. we also finished up a super fun week at ny now and we can’t wait to ship out everyone’s orders. and as for this weekend’s activity? it’s time to BUY YOURSELF A HUGE BOUQUET OF FLOWERS! oh go on, you deserve it. and don’t forget to snap and pic on instagram with the hashtag #bandotodolist. your photo could be featured on our instagram feed…and that’s pretty cool. happy friday, here are some of our favorite links from around the web!

Ban.do loves LA – The Flower Market

if pretty flowers are your thang, you gotta check out the flower market in downtown los angeles. not only does it smell incredible, the flowers are super cheap and crazy fresh. you’ll find flowers there that you didn’t even know existed! here are a few tips to help you navigate your way around. 1) go early. the early bird gets the worm. and in this case…the prettiest flowers. 2) parking…it will most likely suck if you don’t know what you’re doing. we recommend parking at moskatels: they validate with purchase, and you should probably buy something there anyway cuz it’s really cool. 3) don’t buy the first bouquet of peonies that you find (as tempting as it may be)…shop around a bit to find the cheapest vendor. trust us on this one. 4) check out the rainbow roses – they will BLOW your mind.

disneyland must-haves!

for our 6th birthday, the ban.do girl gang took a trip to disneyland. wait what? you haven’t seen our disneyland video? it’s pretty magical. a couple of us are die hard disney fanatics so we thought it would be cool to share our must-haves for a day at disney! we couldn’t have made it through the day without the following items:

flip side clutch: it’s disneyland…you’re going to be walking around ALL day. the last thing you want to do is carry a huge backpack. our flip side clutch worn as a cross body is perfect for all the day’s necessities.

heart shaped sunnies: because it’s bright out and you wanna look as cute as possible, right?

evian mineral water spray (travel size): it’s small and compact and when you’re waiting in line and it’s hot…it’s a total lifesaver!

simple revitalizing eye roll on: it’s cooling and wakes you up at the end of the day!

disneyland button: did you know that lost and found (located right outside the park) will give you a FREE  button if you ask for one? ours said “i’m celebrating!”

ban.do back me up mobile charger: no joke, all of our cell phones ran out of power around lunchtime. luckily, a few gals had our mobile chargers and it totally saved the day!

vitamin b12 – these little babies dissolve under your tonge and give you a little boost of energy and helps clear your mind…disneyland is kind of overstimulating if ya know what we mean.

iphone + case: you’re going to be taking tons of instagram pictures so you might as well have a cute case on your phone!

neutrogena ultra sheer sunscreen: sunburns are NOT fun.

minnie mouse ears: a sequin minnie headband? it’s just too awesome not to own.

if you have other disneyland must-haves, we’d love to hear about them! and, if you wanna see more pictures of our fieldtrips or just our daily life in the studio, make sure you’re following us on instagram!
