A Weekend at the LA Times Festival of Books


I recently attended the 17th Annual LA Times Festival of Books on the campus of USC. I adore going to the book festival because of the variety of authors, exhibitors, and things to do and see. Saturday’s agenda was my own but Sunday was dedicated to exploring the children’s area and catching a couple of performances on the Target Children’s Stage with my little girl. But first…back to Saturday. The ... Read More »

Who owns your online content? Judge’s Ruling Says It’s Twitter

I tweet daily. Sometimes hourly. Sometimes many times in an hour. I tweet about my day, my son, what I’m eating, my mood, the weather, what movie I am seeing… I even tweet pictures from my Instagram feed. Just like every word I publish on my blog, I feel every 140-character message I send into the world is my property. In fact, Twitter says so too. So, isn’t it?  image via Flickr ... Read More »

Wordless Wednesday – The London in West Hollywood and Jordan Wines

london hotel west hollywood mom bloggers in los angeles

The London Hotel in West Hollywood hosted a group of writers last week to experience lunch by the rooftop pool. After lunch we were given a tour of the hotel. My favorite over-the-top fact; the hallways are papered in suede and someone from the staff brushes it 24 hours a day. This week, I was thrilled to be invited back to the Jordan Winery 40th Anniversary Party. Jordan makes only ... Read More »

Who’s The Fairest?

It began with a moment. If I could only lose 10 more. Then I would be happy. Then I would fit into my dress/jeans/ideal of what I think I should look like. I would be more confident, I would try new things, I can actually go out wearing a tank top without feeling so self-conscious…. As women, most of us have thought about our weight and body image more times ... Read More »

Wear Denim on April 25, 2012 To Help Stop Sexual Violence


April is National Sexual Violence awareness month. More than ever these past couple of months I have paid very close attention to cases about violence against women. It’s horrific to think that even in 2012 we need to stand up and bring attention to these issues. Don’t you agree? In February we were reminded just how precious life is as Josh Powell took his life and the life of his ... Read More »

Fresh air, sunshine, bikes. It was going to be fantastic. My 8-year-old wanted to celebrate Earth Day early so I had an entire day planned.

CicLAvia is an occasional festival where 10 miles of downtown streets are blocked off for bike ... Read More »
