Hot Spot: Malibu Farm Restaurant

My friend Payal lives in Westwood and I live in Oxnard. We hadn't seen each other in awhile, so we decided to meet halfway and stop at Malibu Farm Restaurant for a good meal. The food source comes from local and organic farmers markets and suppliers throughout SoCal.

Ventura Two Trees Hike

I love to get a good walk in, so when I heard about the Rancho Ventura Conservation Trust's hike to the historic Two Trees, I was all in. I was originally supposed to do this hike back in December, but because of the Thomas Fire, it never happened. Two Trees (Blue Gum trees) is located [...]

All proceeds supported the Rotary Club of Ojai-West Foundation. So I am not going to lie to you guys: wine festivals are expensive. I have seen them go [...]

Memorial Weekend Getaway: Reno and Lake Tahoe

After years of saying I am going to visit this place, I finally made my way to Lake Tahoe for a long Memorial Day Weekend. I had heard of how crystal clear the lake is and just the peace and serenity of the whole place. With my life being busy, I needed that kind of atmosphere! [...]

My Enhanced Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

As far back as I can remember, the very first thing I ever baked with my mom was chocolate chip cookies. This is by far the ultimate, most classic dessert of all time that I love baking. Unfortunately, when I moved out of my parents house to come to LA 8 years ago, I hadn't [...]

Pressed Juicery 3 Day Cleanse

Last month, I was diagnosed with eczema. I cannot begin to tell you guys how itchy, dry and at times flaky it is. It usually gets worse if it gets a bit hotter outside, if I feel stressed or if I do vigorous exercise. It's controllable, but annoying. It started out as red bumps that [...]
