Surviving the Commuter Life {10 Things}

{via}

OH, commuting.

It’s a reality many of us have to face if we want to work in the city but live in the ‘burbs. Having the best of both worlds means that you’ve gotta make a few sacrifices — one, of which, means that you are probably braving the 101/405/134/210/I-5/insertfreewayhere. Every Monday through Friday. During rush hour. All. Year. Long. {p.s., LA was rated #1 on the Forbes List of Most Traffic-Jammed Cities in the U.S. — yikes}.

It’s enough to make you go all road-rage-Thelma-and-Louise-kinda-crazy, amiright??

Best of… Dog Friendly Restaurants {805 area}

As I am sure you have come to realize, we love dogs {and pretty much all animals} but especially our cuddly canines.

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 …
