A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting Beverly Hills, CA to participate in the 2016 Fiat 500X media drive. After verifying that I wasn’t being punked I quickly started to pack. I never pack early so you can imagine my excitement.
When I arrived at the airport, there was a car waiting and we headed to the elegant Mr C Hotel of Beverly Hills, California. I have officially classified the spectacular oasis as my favorite hotel. The vintage vibe is amazing and the spacious rooms are cozy and super plush. I am still dreaming about having breakfast on the balcony while taking in the mountainous view. To top everything off, it is walking distance from tons of quaint restaurants and the luxe Rodeo Drive; which is pure bliss for a wanderer like me.
After checking in and finding out that media would be on their own until dinner I decided to explore the city. I always make it a point to verify the weather conditions before traveling to ensure I pack accordingly. It was a beautiful 70 degrees, so I threw on a black jumper, arranged for a car and was on Rodeo Drive in a matter of minutes.
I have to admit I was in complete awe. It has been a dream of mine to shop on Rodeo Drive since I saw Beverly Hills Cop in the 80’s. While making my way alone the strip my initial thought was, “Wow! Very Shiny”! LOL! The palm trees, tall building, bold colors, high-end stores and very, very experience cars were simply amazing! After a few hours, it was time to get back to the hotel for dinner, get acquainted with the other driver and prepare for the next day.
On the day of the drive, all participants headed to 3Labs Warehouse in Culver City, CA for a brief overview of the Fiat500X. Once completed, we paired up, picked the vehicle of choice, and headed toward the dreamy Santa Monica Mountains to test drive the sporty crossover.
The drive along Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) is intoxicating. My partner and I stopped at several different points to take pictures and get up close and personal with the scenery. I enjoyed the entire 3 hour experience! The vehicle is super cute and sassy. “It is also very strong and powerful with the ability to handle rough terrain and winding roads with ease“. I would totally recommend it to anyone, especially a fashionistas such as me. 🙂
Me and My Girl All Thing Fadra!
After reaching the turn around point in gorgeous Malibu, we made our way beach to Culver City with huge smiles on our faces. This road trip is going down in history as the #BESTEVER!!!! In addition to taking the best road trip ever, we were now returning to the BEST hotel ever! Yipeee! While heading back my insides were turning with excitement, because I was super tired and so ready to enjoy my last evening in the plush room after a full day of driving.
On the day of departure it was bitter sweet. I was excited to get back and share my story, but I was sad to leave Cali, Fiat, and Mr. C! Oh well, all good things much come to an end, but one thing I didn’t leave behind are my my memories! I will be dreaming of the time we meet again Mr C! You and the Fiat 500X are everything a girl could ever ask for!!!!!!! LOL!
I just want to give a special shout out to Fiat and to Mr C Hotel for making this an experience of a lifetime!!!!!
