A Day at the Races {Santa Anita Race Track}

It’s tough living the “suite” life … which is exactly what we did on Opening Day of Santa Anita Race Track’s 2016 season!

Aptly named #theGreatRacePlace, it is absolutely the place you want to visit this year.  After undergoing a ton of incredible renovations, it has a whole new look — and it definitely isn’t your Grandpa’s weekend haunt anymore.

We started the day off by entering through the Chandelier Room — a gorgeous hall (with — you guessed it — chandeliers) featuring live jazz music and food stations …

Beach Body on a Budget {Bikini Series}

At the top of my New Year’s resolution list this year was getting into shape and eating healthier (OK, it’s actually at the top of my list EVERY year).  But, this year, I really wanted to do something I would actually stick to long term — instead of returning to my old habits come February 1st.

I somehow came across a women’s fitness company at the end of last year called Tone It Up, and started checking out their website and blog. I figured they must be doing something right since they had over a million followers — and not only do they …

Take a Pizz-a My Heart {Urban Pizza}

If you know me, you might know that I have a strong pull toward a few things in life — two of them being melted cheese and discounts.

Naturally, I was drawn to announcements of the newest pizzeria in town, Urban Pizza, which just opened up a new location in Westlake Village [right next door to the Trader Joe’s with the world’s narrowest aisles 😉 ].

Their Grand Opening Event, which spanned over the course of three days, offered HUGE discounts, free items, and tons of perks to get you through their doors.  We made our way there on Saturday to take advantage of the “88 cents …

Nike Training Club + Run Club {& a free app!}

{photo credit: Nike, Nike Training Club West} [p.s., can you spot Hayley and I?! ;)]

When I first moved to Santa Monica a couple years back, I was hard-pressed to find a replacement for my favorite neighborhood gym that I left back in the 805.  Most workouts that I was interested in were costing anywhere from $25-$40… per class.  After a few months, I had pretty much exhausted all of the available Groupon deals in the area, and the YMCA classes were just not cutting it for me anymore.

I checked Meetup.com [great resource!] and found something called Nike Training Club.  The big things that grabbed my …
