The 10th Annual Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic

On Saturday, October 5th, 2919 I attended the 10th annual Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic. I absolutely enjoyed this dope event. I enjoyed a day of being a Boujee milf with my extra’d ass friends. We sipped Veuve Cliquot champagne, ate fancy cheeses and mingled with the most stylish guys and dolls at Will Rodgers State Historic Park.

Polo matches are typically a drag to me but the perfect backdrop on a gorgeous day filled with lots of champagne, fashion and fun. I played life size board games, met fabulous people, took lots of pictures while the deejay played all the jams.

If your like me and never attended an event of this nature you definitely want to be prepared and know what to expect. So I’ve created a little guide and I hope this helps if you’re planning to attend next year.

Ticket options

There are three ticket options; Early Access, General Admission, and Rose’ Garden. Tickets range from $90-$475. Please note all tickets are final sale.

The type of experience you want to have will determine what type of ticket you should buy. General admission is fun but go early because you won’t have a designated spot to sit. Included in your GA ticket is a free shuttle ride to and from event and a souvenir. This year they gave out Veuve Cliquot branded fans.

There are also great photo opts but the crowd is way to big for the space, yet great for people watching. Fun fact: Will Rogers was a polo connoisseur and this event takes place right outside his former home.

Most people who buy GA tickets bring blankets and picnic baskets with a nice little spread of snacks. The seating is first come, first serve and is not included but can be purchased at the champagne bars.

There are plenty of food trucks to make your life easier if you don’t feel like carrying a picnic basket but be prepared to spend a pretty penny. This event is not cheap and neither are the food prices.

Lastly, I heard of a VIP section for the celebs but this area is on a need to know basis. If your looking for a ticket you won’t find it. There is not a purchasable ticket for this area.

What to wear

If you’ve googled polo classic then you know that you better come to slay. You’ll be hanging out with a crowd of fashionistas. That dress in your closet that’s over the top, take it to the cleaners and get it pressed because it deserves a moment and the polo classic is the perfect opportunity to dress to the nines. You’ll see lots of high fashion, tailored suites and Kentucky derby inspired hats. Most people come to show off and they are busting out all their labels. If that’s your thing don’t hold back. Glam it up even if you’re a guy. Over dressing is basically the attire.

I don’t suggest heels if you want to be comfortable. It’s mostly grass at this event so thin heels are a hassle because you’ll get stuck a lot in the grass a lot. Alcohol, heels and Mother Nature don’t mix well but if your a diva or divo you’ll figure it out but don’t say I didn’t try to warn you.

I wore heels the entire time but had flats for the way back (I’m so glad I brought them just in case.) Speaking of the way back, I highly suggest coming early and leaving early. Never leave at 5pm when the event is over or you’ll be stuck in the mayhem. Waiting for the shuttle to go back is ridiculously long. Luckily, I thugged my way to the front. I had to get back to my kids and was wore out from day drinking a ready to go home, so I had to do what I had to do.

Parking

Parking at UCLA near shuttle is $50 and real limited. They suggest getting dropped off but I found parking in the neighborhood and walked two blocks up. No biggie for me, it just depends on you. I saw a lot of people that went the party bus and Uber route. Just remember you will experience higher waits on the way back when waiting for a ride.

You are not allowed to drive up to the park and park. At the shuttle there are two lines. One for GA and one for VIP. Once on the shuttle it was about a 15 minute ride to the Will Rogers State Park.

Souvenirs

Umbrellas (Super expensive)

Champagne cups

Champagne Sleeves

Packing List

Hat, blankets for picnic, snack food, sunscreen, sunglasses, camera, large tote, comfy shoes, pre-packaged food, picnic basket, water bottles and don’t forget your tickets.

If you’ve been thinking about attending…GO! The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is an event held on an annual basis that you don’t want to miss. Even if your not into polo it’s an all day star studded event with world renowned polo players, beautiful decor, plus you get to pay homage to the culture while drinking lots of bubbly.

How To Make Milksicles

Teething is a normal part of a baby’s development when their baby teeth are in the process of erupting. It typically occurs from 6-24 months of age and trust me you will know.

During this time your child will most likely experience discomfort due to tender and swollen gums, become irritable, go through tons of bibs from drooling, and try to bite on any and everything to relieve the pain. Oh and lots of crying.

Teething is a stressful time for you and your baby as you struggle to find ways to relieve their pain but thanks to one mom named Tasia Blackwell (same name gang 💁🏾‍♀️ so I like her already) who invented Milksicles there’s a solution to this challenge.

Shit just got real! I said Yaassss

It’s been one week since I got engaged and it feels exactly how I thought it would feel-simply amazing. I’ve been smiling from ear to ear this whole week. Just happy, gloating and drunk in love.

I’ve literally been playing Beyoncé’s “Love On Top” in my head on repeat. Hitting the high notes and everything. LOL. I’m making sure it gets played at my wedding (it’s never to soon to start planning) because I’m obsessed with it right now.

The lyrics hit different when you know exactly what Beyoncé means when she says finally you put my love on top. Man oh man, like this post if you understand.

This love shit is work. It’s easy to be single and selfish. To be in a relationship is hard work but to be able to depend on someone is the best feeling in the world. A lot of times you are all you got so to find someone you can be unapologetically you with to go through life with is a game changer.

Let’s just say about a year ago I came up with this passion project-A working moms support group. I work and I love being a mommy too.
