One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning in Laguna Beach is to grab a coffee and pick up fresh flowers in the Lumberyard Mall. It’s conveniently located on Forest Avenue in the heart of downtown Laguna. There are little shops, a few eateries, art galleries and boutiques.
The D23 Expo is a Disney fan convention that happens every two years. I recently attended and wanted to share a recap of some of the exciting highlights!
We are headed to Disney World this summer! It will be my first time in Florida AND my first time going to Disney World. While there, we will be celebrating our 5th year wedding anniversary (a little early). Here’s how I’m preparing our little family for this exciting trip to the Magic Kingdom:
Did you know that a lot of toys that children play with today are made with harmful chemicals? Luckily, we can choose to make better decisions for our own health, for the health of our families and for good ole’ Mother Earth.
Since Laguna Beach is my hometown and also where our little family currently resides, I rounded up a quick list of things to do— perfect for a quick trip to Laguna for the day. Laguna is such a unique town filled with creativity, inspiration and a whole lot of History.
As you all know Mother’s Day sneaks up on us and next thing you know you’re last minute shopping for something meaningful/useful for your special lady. It’s time to prepare to pamper and spoil our Mamas. Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas this year…
I recently visited Blown Away Beauty Bar in Laguna Niguel and received my first blowout EVER. Blown Away Beauty Bar is extremely courteous of your time and always wants to ensure that while you’re there, you’re being pampered, you feel relaxed and leave the salon looking and feeling empowered. I can definitely say that that’s EXACTLY how I felt while there and when I left.
With all the craziness and chaos in the world today, I often think about our daughter and how we hope to raise her to be accepting of all people and to know her identity rooted in Christ. We also hope that while she’s growing up and starting to build deeper relationships with friends, that she’s known to be loyal, someone who’s selfless, and always putting the needs of others before her own. I’m so grateful to have found a children’s book series that points our kids to God in a compelling way.
This past weekend, we attended Disney on Ice, “Dream Big” in Long Beach, CA. Watching our baby girl in awe of the show brought back so many childhood memories. Seeing her giant smile gazing at the organized chaos through extremely talented and entertaining ice skaters was so cute I could’ve cried. Okay, I did!
Buy Hand is a cute little boutique shop in the heart of the HIP District in Laguna Beach. It’s owned by sisters Vidya and Kavita who opened the shop with the vision of bringing its customers the best American made products. Everything in the store is handmade and one-of-a-kind. Buy Hand recently hosted a “Grand Relocation Celebration,” themed Bollywood, at their new location in Laguna in the HIP District and it was so fun!
