Oysters + Martinis = the Happiest of Hours {The Gallery Restaurant, Westlake}

Most of the time, happy hour means cheap, fried food and a decent bottle of domestic beer — you leave feeling somewhat satisfied, but mostly a little tipsy and a lot bloated. This is definitely not the case at The Gallery Restaurant, located at The Shoppes at Westlake. The Gallery is a casual, yet elegant restaurant that boasts specialty cocktails and a gourmet menu which will leave you feeling more than content.The Gallery Restaurant - Westlake - Shoppes at Westlake - bar - happy hour - LocalLove805 The Gallery Restaurant - Westlake …

DIY Flower Mart Themed Baby Shower {DIY events}

As you may have seen on our Instagram feed, my sisters and I recently hosted a baby shower for our very own, Tanisha Kipling! She is having her baby girl #2 due October 7th — so soon! {PS if you haven’t already, check out her maternity photos here!}

We were fortunate enough to host the shower over a delicious brunch at Mediterraneo on the Westlake Village Inn property. We love their outdoor patios and of course, their food! It is the perfect setting for a shower, and any small gathering at that — plus, it’s conveniently located right next door to Stonehaus in case any guests want to continue …

A Scenic Hike to the Top of Lizard Rock {Thousand Oaks}

Over Memorial Day weekend, my mom and I hiked up to Lizard Rock for a scenic outdoor workout. We entered from Hill Canyon in Santa Rosa Valley (which we’ve posted on a few times now!), and you can also enter it from Wildwood Park in Thousand Oaks.

From Hill Canyon, you can head up the switch backs to the left of the entry gate. Luckily, it was a cool day — and of course, the earlier you head out, the better.

Here’s a couple reasons why we love Lizard Rock/Hill Canyon & Wildwood Park:

How to keep the pounds off this Holiday season {Work it Wednesday}

November starts the season of impending holiday binging on Turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie which then leads to Christmas parties full of cookies, wine, and even more pie.  Now don’t get us wrong, we love a good holiday party {have you seen the Schussel’s Fakesgiving party!?!}, but all these delicious treats leave us feeling a little…well bloated and guilty.  But never fear, we have a fun, effective, and calorie torching workout for you courtesy of 3 Elements Lifestyle gym in Thousand Oaks.
