How to ‘Wow’ Your Mom This Mother’s Day

Friendly PSA from your team here at LL805: Mother’s Day is almost here!

Let’s get down to brass tacks for a sec: your mom dealt with you all throughout the whiny years, still fed you even when you dissed her cooking, and you lived to tell about it {hey, let’s face it — you weren’t exactly a gem in high school}.  Your mom deserves a little extra love at LEAST one day per year!

[p.s., aren’t these moms such total babes?! #wegotitfromourmamas]

You’ve got something brilliant planned for her this May 10th, right? …right…? ::crickets::

Deep breaths, people.  Here’s how to inch your way to the top of the “favorite child” list!

1. Brunch

  • Westlake Village Inn {$76/adult; $18/child} :: Walk around the gorgeous grounds of this hotel, and stop in at Stonehaus for wine afterward 😉 Brunch buffet for adults includes a glass of champagne.
  • Four Seasons, Westlake {$119/adult; $59/child 12 and under} :: Live music from a roaming guitarist, a decadent brunch display featuring carving stations, seafood, and dishes from Executive Chef Jesse Hansen, and a Build-Your-Own Ice Cream display.  BonusMom gets a free gift upon departure!
  • Harvest Kitchen + Bar, Hyatt Westlake {$55/adult, $25/child 12 and under} :: Enjoy farm-to-table cuisine that celebrates local produce, meats, and dairy products.  Many dietary options are available at this brunch, such as vegan, gluten free, and dairy free.
  • Make it Yourself! {budget-friendly} :: Check out this delicious and healthy Mother’s Day dish, or look up a favorite brunch dish to make for your mama.  She will love the extra love that you poured into it, and it will save you some dough!

2. Pamper

  • FIT Bodywrap BOGO {California Health + Longevity Institute} :: $125 gets you two 50-minute bodywrap infrared treatments, which detoxes while relaxing your whole body!  Sounds like a win-win situation, am I right?!
  • Wow-Me-Wednesdays, The Spa at Four Seasons Westlake Village {$119} :: Choose between a 50-minute Custom Organic Facial, 50-minute Maternity Massage (for the mom-to-be in your life!) or 50-minute Tranquility massage.  If you book a treatment between 9am and 1pm, this package also comes with 4 hours of free childcare!
  • Mani/Pedi {prices vary} :: A quick search will turn up tons of wonderful nail salons in the 805.  Choose one with good reviews, and you will be sure to have a wonderful and relaxing experience.  We can’t wait to try the new BCBC Nail Spa at The Shoppes at Westlake Village!
  • All Tressed Up {$35} :: For a lovely hairstyle that comes with a killer scalp massage, look no further than All Tressed Up.  Mom will love having someone style her hair, and the experienced stylists will primp her locks to her liking.



3. Explore

  • Conejo Valley Days {Thousand Oaks} :: Does your mom love the heart-pumping adrenaline of a good carnival ride?  Or maybe the way to her heart is through a delicious funnel cake 🙂 The final day of Conejo Valley Days is on Mother’s Day, so why not treat her to a day at the carnival?  On this day only, all moms enter for the price of a child’s admission ticket {$5 — must be accompanied by at least one of her children}.
  • Mom’s Day Run 5k/10k {Ventura Beach} :: Raise money for cancer research while running a race with your mom!  Try not to feel too bad when she crosses the finish line before you [moms are sneaky like that], and then spend some quality time at the beach together afterward.
  • Mother’s Day at Ventura Harbor Village {1-4pm} :: Live country music will put a spring in your step as you wine taste along the harbor, captain an electric boat through the Ventura Keys, or enjoy lunch overlooking the boats.

    This is a Fun Run/or Walk along the beach with your mom, in honor of your mom or in memory of your mom. I lost my mother in 2010 and made a promise to do whatever I could to help find a cure for VHL. The Mom’s Day Run is my way of keeping that promise.

    Tacos Los Koras will provide his famous, humongous breakfast burritos to all the participants, We will have Chocolate Covered Strawberries, the biggest Donut Holes you’ve ever seen from Rolling Pin Donuts, Cupcakes from the 2 Times Winner of Food Network Cupcake Wars, Choctal Ice Cream….and more.

    Plus: A Mother’s Day Card craft table, a Photo Booth with props and more…What better way to celebrate, right? Bring a friend, bring the family,



    And keep up with the latest information.
