Make no mistake, it is very unsafe to hike in the full sun, in almost 90 degree weather without the proper amount of water. Our group had the proper amount, and we all ran out of water at the end of the hike, even though we packed more than we thought we would need. This got me thinking, if beginners don't respect the dangers of hiking in such heat, maybe I should write a few quick tips on what you should do if you go hiking in the summer to get that cool Instagram picture. I know it seems like common sense to a lot of us, but it's important for those going on their first high intensity hike to respect nature and protect yourself so you can stay healthy.
This post is long over due. I saw the Wonder Woman movie on the Friday it debuted, but I was fearful of giving my readers spoilers. So, if you still haven't had a chance to see the movie and don't wish to be spoiled, please skip this post.
It has been about two weeks since I posted about my tiny patio garden, and I know you all are DYING for an update. Well, I think I'll just let these pictures speak for them selves.
A few weekends ago, my husband and I enjoyed a getaway trip to Big Bear Lake. I had never been to Big Bear, and as a Northern California girl who loves Lake Tahoe, I was eager to see what all the fuss is about.
I thought I'd share with you a new endeavor of mine: a herb and vegetable patio garden! Since summer is coming up, and I love adding fresh ingredients to the food I make, this is the perfect time to start gardening. Or so I think. Only time will only tell if I have what it takes to make a patio garden thrive.
This past weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting a diner that is so charming, I just can't keep it to myself! If you are planning to visit Orange County this summer, do yourself a favor and eat a hearty meal at Galley Cafe in Newport.
Do you like cake? Who doesn't like cake?! (Okay, I think I know one person...You know who you are.) When it comes to making a cake from scratch the pressure can be enormous - especially if you don't have time to mess one batch up and make another.
The creative process involves a lot of reading for me. Reading books, online articles, blogs and listening to Podcasts. Lately, I've been seeing many Facebook friends post articles that have titles such as, "13 Things Successful People Don't Do" or, "10 Things to Start Doing to Become Successful". Finally, my curiosity got the most of me, and I read a few of these articles.
Around Easter every year, I get a hankering for some BBQ. Something about the longer days and the temperature warming up, is the perfect recipe for some major cravings for ANYTHING GRILLED. However, if you don't have access to a BBQ/grill (like me), or the weather won't corporate with your food cravings - I have the perfect solution. It's my caramelized pork steak recipe!
It had been 10 years since I last visited Universal Studios, and since then they added a lot of new rides, so it was naturally time for a visit! I'm not only interested in the rides, but the FOOD. Who isn't? So, I've got a list below of the top 5 things you should eat at Universal Studios in Hollywood, if you get a chance to go.
An Easter celebration is not complete without beautifully colored eggs. They are easy to make, and the process is rather fun! I enjoy having a few around during Easter, they are great decorations and look so much better than the plastic ones.
Today (March 30) marks the 36 anniversary of President Reagan's assassination attempt. While this might be a rather dark way to start a travel review, I believe it is the perfect time to shed some light on one of the most interesting Presidents the United States has ever had.
