29-ish: A Backyard Birthday Bash

I find a lot of joy in planning parties for other people, but not gonna lie — when they’re for me, it is 100{fd7f0a6624fbd2224f3c60e3404acbd2207eb416c38268e7e97265ebe361b912} stressful.  I waffle back and forth between “I don’t want any attention on myself” and “people are giving up a Saturday night, so I want it to be worth their while.”  And then I get on Pinterest, and that’s when the downward spiral begins.

I kept brainstorming for how I wanted to ring in the big 3-0, and soon decided that all I wanted was to have all of my friends, sitting around a table together, drinking wine, and eating delicious food …

3 Must-Haves for a Killer Workout Class [& how StudioBPM has them all]

Let’s just make one thing clear: we are pretty picky when it comes to workout classes. Also, workout classes and memberships are NOT cheap.

So, in our opinion, you have every reason to be a bit pickier than normal — especially when it comes with a service you are paying for and ultimately, investing in.

Having spent almost two years as ClassPass members, we’ve spent a lot of time in various studios across LA and the 805 — and from those experiences, we’ve put some “must-haves” in place.

Last week, we got the chance to stop in to the new StudioBPM in Agoura Hills for a Cycle + Circuit Combo class …

Five Friday Faves {This Week’s Edition}

1. MadeWest Brewing Company :: joining the ranks of my faaavorite breweries in the 805, MadeWest is hot on the scene.  Grab a generous 4oz sample size of any beer for only $2 [seriously!] with most full-size beers coming in at $3 and $4.

1.

Maternity Photos: Malibu Creek State Park {Brooke Borough Photography}

I have known the lovely Brooke Borough of Brooke Borough Photography since she was a junior high student and hung out with my little sister — they both were adorably awkward and hilarious growing up, so it’s so much fun to see what a lovely and talented woman she’s become! (…still waiting for my sister to grow out of the awkward phase… just kidding TayTay! 😉

After seeing her work with Tanisha’s maternity photos, I knew that I had to have her take my maternity photos one day.  Funny story actually — in December, I was in the early stages of my pregnancy, …

Tunes & Tastings {Whizin Market Square}

Every Thursday from 4-8pm, the Whizin Market Square in Agoura Hills is hosting a Tunes & Tastings event featuring artisanal food pairings and performances from local musicians and artists.

We love the idea of exploring the Whizin Market Square’s different boutique shops while enjoying small bites and beverages made from fresh local ingredients!  It’s a great opportunity to try something new, as well as support local businesses and artists (which we are all about).

The shopping center’s restaurants will be offering happy hour specials as well.  For more info on these events check out their event page here.
