Malibu Cafe at Calamigos Ranch, Pt. 1 {Local Eats & Venue}

So I may have a soft spot for Calamigos Ranch [my husband and I got married there in October 2012], but it really is a magical place – perfect for any occasion.

Malibu Cafe offers a plethora of seating and games on their huge lawn, making it super dog- and kid-friendly too (so don’t be afraid to bring those little ones with you – they’re more than welcome here and they’ll love it!).

Pacific Surfliner Train Santa Barbara Getaway {local getaway}

For our mom’s birthday, we decided to surprise her with tickets to see Foreigner and Styx at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Boy did she love it! I must say, it was one of the best concerts I’ve been to too (sorry N*SYNC) – the bands were great and super energetic! Plus, the SB Bowl is such a beautiful setting, tucked away in the hills with ocean views from the top of the amphitheater — PS next time you’re there, make sure to walk up to the top for some beautiful photos of the sunset.

The Tasting Room Opening {Four Seasons Westlake Village}

We are so excited about the latest addition to the Conejo Valley and 805 area. On Friday evening we were fortunate to attend the opening event for Four Seasons Westlake Village’s much anticipated Tasting Room. It was perfect timing for a celebration too, since the Malibu Coast just received their AVA!

Four Seasons Westlake Village opened The Tasting Room in partnership with Malibu Family Wines to offer another beautiful location in the Conejo Valley for both locals and visitors to enjoy California wines in a classy, yet subtle environment. The Tasting Room will be featuring wines from the Malibu coast and other California locations.

This Week’s Edition {eat. shop. play. explore.}

eat {and drink}.

Yesterday was National Tequila Day and today is Friday – I think that means it’s time to lay back and enjoy a delicious margarita (or two), right!?

Lucky for you, we recently made our own DIY pear and peach jalapeño margaritas – and they were delicious! Here’s the recipe we based our Peach Jalapeno Margarita off of, courtesy of Baking Addition, and then we made our own version of this with pears! Both were delicious and we highly suggest putting an umbrella in your drink — then you can really lay back 🙂

Perfect Place for Alone Time, Small Gatherings & More {Chocolatine, Thousand Oaks}

When was the last time you spent some quality alone time? Enjoying the leisure of having no plans or time constraints. It’s been awhile, right? I find that the older I get (and I’m not that old;), the more rare that time becomes. However, recently I went to JiffyLube for an oil change on T.O. Blvd (sounds amazing, right?;) and while I was waiting for my car, I walked over to one of my favorite local cafes, Chocolatine.

If you haven’t been yet, Chocolatine is a French Pastries & Tea Room located in Thousand Oaks off of T.O. Blvd. It’s owned by the sweetest …
