A Favorite Caffeine Fix: BeanoVino {Newbury Park}

There’s really nothing better than a cute little coffee shop that serves delicious lattes, invites you to sit in a comfy over-sized chair, and use their free wifi… until you discover they also serve wine.  So now you’re only dilemma is what to order. Coffee. No, wine. No… coffee {I mean, it’s only 11 AM so I guess it’s coffee ;)}.

Those are just a few of the reasons why we love BeanoVino in the Dos Vientos Ranch community of Newbury Park, located in their Village Center.

It may be a little out of the way, but it really is the perfect place to …

$1 Boot Camp Classes {Ventura}

Hey everyone! It’s Nicole (the other Nicole), and I’m so happy to be back on Local Love 805 today for another Work It Wednesday.

By now I’m sure you are in full swing with New Year’s Resolutions, and I bet most of you have a fitness or nutrition related goal for 2015. I mean, who doesn’t?! I, for one, need to break some bad eating habits {can we say too.many.cookies..?!}

Where should you start when looking to achieve your fitness goals? If you need a fresh, cheap, local idea… you are in luck!

Locally Roasted: Beacon Coffee Co. {Ventura}

Have you ever heard of a cupping class? We’re true coffee fanatics at LocalLove805, but we’ll be honest — we hadn’t heard of one until last week. So, as you can imagine, we weren’t sure what to expect when we signed up for the New Crop Cupping Class at Beacon Coffee Co. in Ventura.

We were thrilled as soon as we discovered this local coffee shop.  They not only purchase their coffee directly from small producers and single estate coffee farmers and then roasts it here …

805 Summer Bucket List

Even though it’s felt like summer since, like, February, the summer solstice has come and gone… which means, it’s official: summer is HERE!

Summer time means more play time on the beach, staying outside later to enjoy the late evening sunsets (so much more time in the sun!) and those special summer vacay(s) — but it also means more time for yourself and trying out new things.

As they say, the world is your oyster. And what better time than the summer?! We created our very own Summer Bucket List of things to accomplish over the next couple months. Hopefully, our Summer Bucket List will inspire you to …
