MALIBU—Lest you forget, Malibu Country Mart's major summer block party is going down this Sunday from 2 to 6pm. To further entice you to make the trek to the seaside shopping haven, Planet Blue is hosting a meet-and-greet with jewelry designer Natalie B. Guests can nab her statement accessories at 20% off and score 15% off all other jewels and swimwear in the store. Thirst-quenching coconut water and wine will also be in the mix all day long. It's a guaranteed Sunday funday you won't want to miss. [Racked Inbox]

SANTA MONICA—Besides the sand and the ocean, three reasons to book a staycation in SaMo: bronze, booze and brunch. The new Miramar Pool and Beach Club at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is launching a Bronzing Bar. Starting this Sunday and continuing every Sunday through the end of summer, hotel guests will be treated to a beach-perfect glow with complimentary bronzing sessions by Benefit Cosmetics makeup gurus. Libations from their new cocktail cart will sweeten the experience and $3 tacos will seal the deal. [Racked Inbox]
