Did you say happy hour??

Why yes… YES we did.

How to Treat Yourself & the Environment {Lessons from The Wellness Kitchen}

We still can’t get over the amazing food we cooked at the Wellness Kitchen and how much we learned in so little time. Our tummies left very satisfied, but more importantly, we were inspired to make a change in our diet and share this nutritional wisdom with anyone we can.

Seriously, there was so much that we didn’t know about nutrition, and how it not only effects our own health, but also the environment.LocalLove805 - Four Seasons Westlake Village - Wellness Kitchen - hands on cooking class - healthy cookingLocalLove805 …

7 Reasons Why Brunch is a MUST at Outpost {The Goodland in Goleta}

As soon as we drove up to The Goodland Hotel located in beautiful Goleta, just miles north of downtown Santa Barbara, we were instantly obsessed. And I mean, instantly. Everything from the font used on their signage, the dreamy airstream trailers and green grass lawn out front, the eclectic decor and vibrant colors all throughout, the laid-back Southern California facade that transports you to a swank yet breezy Palm Springs hotel in the 70’s — yeah, I’d say The Goodland had me at hello.

ESPN LA: The Jeff Fisher Show {Westlake Village Inn}

Guess who’s back… The Los Angeles Rams!!

For people that are clueless when it comes to football (liiiike myself…), LA has an NFL team for the first time since 1994.  Why should you care?  Because their practice fields and facilities are in our own backyard, at Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks!

This means more than just catching glimpses of NFL players at your local Trader Joe’s.  With the move of the Rams comes some fun events — case in point, ESPN LA’s radio show, The Jeff Fisher Show, which broadcasts from the Westlake Village Inn every Monday during football season!

Oysters + Martinis = the Happiest of Hours {The Gallery Restaurant, Westlake}

Most of the time, happy hour means cheap, fried food and a decent bottle of domestic beer — you leave feeling somewhat satisfied, but mostly a little tipsy and a lot bloated. This is definitely not the case at The Gallery Restaurant, located at The Shoppes at Westlake. The Gallery is a casual, yet elegant restaurant that boasts specialty cocktails and a gourmet menu which will leave you feeling more than content.The Gallery Restaurant - Westlake - Shoppes at Westlake - bar - happy hour - LocalLove805 The Gallery Restaurant …

DIY Flower Mart Themed Baby Shower {DIY events}

As you may have seen on our Instagram feed, my sisters and I recently hosted a baby shower for our very own, Tanisha Kipling! She is having her baby girl #2 due October 7th — so soon! {PS if you haven’t already, check out her maternity photos here!}
