Heading to NYC for July 4th? #Author Monica DiNatale Has Tips on Eating & Exploring! #guestblogger

I know a lot of people here on the west coast, love to head east and spend some time in NYC and the Hamptons or other locales of equal interest. The city is less crowded and easier to navigate. It’s also more like getting the best of both worlds being out on Long Island as well as in the city proper.

EB5’s Original 5 in 1 Intensive Moisture Anti-Aging Cream Is a Dream Come True -For Your Face!! #Giveaway

I learned about eb5 skincare products via email! The interesting part about this line is that it’s the “original wrinkle cream”: eb5 traces its roots back to 1904 when pharmacist Samuel Heldfond opened the Heldfond Drug Co. in Portland, Oregon. Samuel and his son Robert spent their careers creating life-changing remedies for customers of the apothecary.One such remedy combined a unique, highly absorbent, non-greasy...

New Year, New Destinations: Catch Up + Slow Down in Calif. Central Coast ! #travel

I love to travel. The biggest issue is always finding the time. I have to say that I was so looking forward to getting out of “Dodge”, i.e., leaving LA & traffic behind and just hitting the road to head up the coast for a couple of days.

California’s Aquarium of the Pacific, Queen Mary, Long Beach Grand Prix and numerous other events. However...
