Hot Spot: Cafe Nouveau

I absolutely love going to Cafe Nouveau for breakfast on a weekend, it is seriously one of the best breakfast spots in Ventura! The restaurant is hosted in a 1920s Spanish bungalow and even has an outdoor patio in a Mediterranean setting. It's so gorgeous, it's a must place to dine at! The restaurant does get [...]

Hot Spot: Lure Fish House

When my parents were in town a couple weeks ago, I wanted (ok, needed) to take them to Lure Fish House in Ventura for dinner. I absolutely adore coming here for their drinks and fresh seafood. The place is always packed, no matter what hour it is. It's that popular and the staff is always [...]

Know Your SoCal Cities and Explore

I have a question for born and raised Southern California residents that I just cannot figure out since I came here 7 years ago: Why don't you know where cities are in the region? I'm not saying you are all like this, but I feel like a majority of the people I talk to don't [...]

The California Earthquake Reality

If you ask anyone in SoCal, they will tell you that we are long overdue for the "Big One" - earthquake, that is. There's not a month that goes by where news outlets aren't reporting something about it, all of which are very informative and helpful to read: LA Times: San Andreas fault 'locked, loaded and [...]

Hot Spot: Agave Maria’s

My parents came into town from Florida during Easter Weekend, so on Saturday I decided to take them to my favorite Mexican restaurant in Ventura County: Agave Maria's in Ojai. According to their website, Agave Maria’s was established in the early 60s in downtown Ojai and renovated in 2010 under new owners. I love the establishment because [...]

Hot Spot: Duke’s Malibu

Malibu is my favorite city along the PCH to visit, especially Zuma Beach for sunbathing, taking a walk along the ocean or playing a game of volleyball. But something I love more are the restaurants. Whenever I have a chance, I try and stop at Duke's Malibu for some good seafood. The restaurant was named after [...]

Day Trip to Palm Springs

I haven't been to Palm Springs since the fall of 2010 and I was dying to get back, so I decided to jump in my car and head east for the day last Saturday. From LA, it's about 2 hours east. I love Palm Springs for the colors, unique desert location and the relaxed environment that it [...]

Find Strength With Yoga, Pilates and Meditation

Yoga, pilates and meditation are a huge thing in SoCal, so I thought I'd ask my friend Payal, who is an expert and avid in those areas, about the benefits of each, the membership she uses and the advice she has to offer for those who want to start! What are the benefits of yoga? [...]
