RECAP: World Heart Day with GUARDaHEART @guardaheartorg #targetingheartdisease #worldheartday2013

A few weeks ago for the World Heart Federation’s World Heart Day, we attended a special red-carpet event hosted by GUARDaHEART, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting heart disease through awareness and prevention.

The black tie James Bond-themed event focused on “Targeting Heart … READ MORE

Haunted Hollywood Sports #Review | @HauntedHSP @GiantSportz #HauntedHSP

I’m scared of zombies and dark places so when Haunted Hollywood Sports invited me out, I sent my friend Angela (who loves this kind of stuff!) and this is what she reported… Do you like thrills? What about chills? Does picking up a paintball gun and blasting some zombies sound like a fun night to you? Then you would absolutely love Haunted Hollywood Sports at the Hollywood Sports complex in Bellflower. Every Friday and Saturday for the entire month of October, one of Southern California’s largest airsoft and paintball complexes, takes on a terrifying transformation.

Last week, a wonderful surprise arrived at our door step. Can you guess what’s inside this insulated grocery bag from Winder Farms? If you guessed chocolate milk and cookies (what gave that away?), then you are correct! The cookies are so good! They were made in a home kitchen from The Cookie Lady Shop (she’s local). We also love the old-fashioned glass milk bottle and need to figure out how to recycle it back to them. Thanks, Winder Farms!

Family Dining Experience at Dominique’s Kitchen | #Review @DominiquesKtchn #dominiqueskitchen

We were invited to have a family dinner at Dominique’s Kitchen, a Euro-French restaurant. It wasn’t as intimidating as I thought it would be. About a week ago, we ventured out of OC to Redondo Beach. I was a little nervous, because my young kids are wild, but I was reassured that families are welcomed. My first reactions were this place is really trendy and nice inside. (Also, hope my kids don’t break anything). We received a warm greeting from Liza, the owner/Hostess, and she was seen walking around making sure guests were comfortable. She came to our table at least three to five times throughout the evening and was … READ MORE
