Father’s Day Recap: Biking in Ventura

Hope you all had a relaxing and refreshing Father’s Day weekend 🙂 It was Brett’s first Father’s Day as a new “dada” (as Graham calls him… ok he calls me that too sometimes, haha!), so I decided to take our little family north to Ventura for the day!

We loaded up our bikes and lathered on the sunscreen because hellooo did you see how beautiful it was yesterday?! There’s a free parking lot at the far end of Main Street, right near …

5 Simple Ways to Incorporate Exercise into your Vacay {DIY Fitness}

I love to be active and explore while on vacation, as I think most people do — unless you’re more the lounging, reading a book type, which is also fine (I guess;). Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about laying poolside and enjoying a few Pina Coladas (which the waiter so kindly brought over to me) … BUT, that kind of vacay only happens every so often, and after a day or two of lounging, I’m usually ready for some activity anyway.

I was recently camping at Refugio Beach (one of our family’s fave local campgrounds) and realized how many simply ways there are to incorporate exercise and/or …

Are You a Camper or a Glamper? Or both? {local getaway}

We have the perfect getaway for you — so perfect, in fact, that I almost want to keep it secret. But we wouldn’t do that! Just keep it on the DL so all of LA doesn’t catch on to how awesome the 805 is 😉 JK!!! kinda…

Anyway, here’s the scoop –

You’ve heard us talk about our LOVE for Santa Barbara and camping a few times before, so here’s a little more.

Ocean Mesa Campground and El Capitan Canyon, both located north of Santa Barbara, offer something for everyone — the glamper and the camper! El …

Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa: Local Parks and Trails {Newbury Park}

One of the great things about living in the 805 is the abundance of parks and hiking trails.  Even though I have lived in the area pretty much my entire life, I have only just recently discovered how many great areas there are to hike. It’s a little overwhelming to me, actually.  Last week we mentioned Hill Canyon in Camarillo and this week we are highlighting Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa Park in Newbury Park.

Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa in Newbury Park is home to a wealth of hiking, biking, and horse trails.  The main entrance is at the cross street of Via Goleta and Potrero Road and …

Hill Canyon: Local Park & Trails {Camarillo}

I’m often in Santa Rosa Valley, since my parents live there, but it wasn’t until recently that I discovered Hill Canyon (thanks to my mother!).

Hill Canyon is a beautiful park area offering picnic & BBQ amenities, panoramic views, bird watching, 2 equestrian riding areas, and plenty of biking & hiking trails. As you drive down Hill Canyon Road off of Santa Rosa Road, you will see a parking lot just before the bridge and fire road entrance.

If you head toward the bridge, it will take you first to some picnic tables sitting underneath the shady trees and alongside the creek. There’s also some trail maps and park info on the …

This Week’s Local Edition {Eat.Shop.Play.Explore}

It’s Friday!! Here’s the low-down on what we’re loving and looking forward to this weekend!

EAT. 

We are loving everything about the newest health food spot in Agoura Hills, The Rabbit Hole Cafe. First of all, it’s ADORABLE. I mean, look at their menu! We first heard about this new hub via Conejo Deals, which sold out super quick! Everything about it is to die for, and they stand for everything we believe in — community, healthy food, local produce, and character:)

A Small Mountain Town Getaway {Idyllwild, CA}

Are you guys aware of the small mountain town nearby called Idyllwild? Because although I grew up here, I had never heard of Idyllwild until last October when my husband and I were planning our one year anniversary trip. I was scrolling through Groupon and Living Social (oh my gosh I can’t help it, but that’s another story) and I saw places like Catalina, Mammoth, Newport, Santa Barbara … then I came across Idyllwild Bed & Breakfast.

Well, I absolutely LOVE bed & breakfasts, so of course it caught my interest. I mean, they had me at “small town getaway”. I feel like the Idyllwild …
