About Us

LocalLove805 Team

Eat. Shop. Play. Explore. LOCAL.

LocalLove805 is a place to celebrate, promote and support our community. It’s a one-stop shop for discovering local hidden gems, planning your next event or weekend getaway, and tapping into your community resources. We were inspired to create this site, not only to share all that Conejo Valley has to offer, but also to share how to live a social, active lifestyle without blowing your budget. We are three young professionals who grew up in the 805, and after moving away for a period of time, have all returned and chosen to call it our home. I mean, absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? It was only a matter of time before we each individually realized that you don’t need to travel far, or even outside the 805, for the latest “LA hotspot” or weekend getaway. Instead, we choose to engage here in our community- to eat, shop, play & explore- and to spread the love back to you.

So whether you’re coming to visit the 805 and surrounding area, or you’re a local, WELCOME! Please spend some time with us. We are so happy that you’re here and we hope that you come to love the 805 as much as we do.

{P.S.: for those of you who think there’s nothing to do out here, you’re probably not looking hard enough. It’s all here, right in your own backyard.}

LocalLove805_Tanisha Kipling


Tanisha is a nurse at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She and her husband Mark bought their first home two years ago, and have been renovating ever since (luckily she married quite the handyman/woodworker!).  She’s an avid reader and a member of her wine– ahem, book club, and enjoys planning weekend getaways that allow for both exploring and unwinding.

LocalLove805_Hayley Texidor


Hayley is newly married to her husband Luke, and they are currently in the process of building their first home together in Agoura Hills. She works as a Project Manager for a top digital media company in LA. On a more personal note, Hayley has a hard time making decisions, often either blaming it on her middle child status, or just deciding to try them all. She is perpetually buying local deals and finding ways to get more for less.
