Be Gone, Dry Skin!

29 October 2015

Ladies! Happy Thursday... The autumn weather is FINALLY starting to arrive here in Southern California and I couldn't be more happy. But what do we all have to deal with when there's a change in the weather - especially Santa Ana winds? Dry skin! Thankfully, I have found a FANTASTIC facial moisturizer that makes my skin smile...

NINE Continues to Delight!

27 October 2015

Local community theatre, Camarillo Skyway Playhouse, in the Ventura County has been charming patrons with their current production of Arthur Kopit and Maury Yeston's NINE.

Directed by Ken Patton and Choreographed by Ken Patton and Eric R. Umali, the community production is a good team effort from the twelve member cast that works well with Yeston and Kopit's sexy and beautiful ensemble piece.

Two Thumbs Up: Protein Hair Mask

24 October 2015

Ladies, I am thrilled to share with you an amazing product that can not help but bring a smile to your face.  Arvazallia has come out with their own Fortifying Protein Hair Mask infused with Argan Oil and Macadamia Oil that truly works miracles.  Since receiving my hair mask in the post, I have used it once a week as recommended and seen immediate results for the better that last for days. My hair feels glossy, looks shiny and the frizz is at a minimum! Seriously amazing stuff.
So how does it work, you ask?

Disappointing: Sagano Review

20 October 2015

Be honest... Do you have stinky shoes? Well, I will confess that one of my favorite pairs of wedges can benefit from a fresh powdering of Johnson's Baby Powder after a day on my feet (without nylons). A freshening never hurt anyone, right? So when I heard about Sagano's "Activated Charcoal Shoe Odor Eliminator" I figured it would be worth a try. The reviews on Amazon were positive with an average of 5 stars. Sadly, I was disappointed with my own results and will be sticking with Johnson's Baby Powder.

Cabrillo's Damn Yankees Hits a Home Run!

19 October 2015

Cabrillo Music Theatre's smashing production of Damn Yankees opened this past weekend at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. And what a home run it was! Starring four bright AEA actors, including Jersey Boys' Renée Marino (Lola), Broadway's John Sloman (Applegate), and LA favorites Travis Leland (Joe Hardy), and Sarah Tattersall (Meg Boyd).

GIFT Guide: Q&A A Day

16 October 2015

The holidays are fast approaching so time for  -- the 2015 gift guide!

And today I am thrilled to present the third recommendation, Potter Style's Q&A A Day for Creatives. This creative book is unique and makes a great gift for those creatives in your life! So pull a cuppa and keep reading as I share why you should consider gifting Q&A A Day for Creatives to someone special in your life this upcoming holiday season.

Q&A a day is a four year diary for the creatives. It measures 9.5 x 0.9 x 7.6 inches and while it does not lie open flat it is still quite flexible. Each page is dated with four squares (1 per year) and a suggested topic. Today, 16 October, the prompt is: Draw a trophy for someone deserving of praise in your life. Other prompts include: (1) what does family mean to you? (2) Practice your graffiti styling. (3) Illustrate your latest guilty pleasure.

There are additional versions of Q&A A Day including a version for couples, families and mom/child. 

I would say this book tends to grab the interest of the creative and the female.  Anyone from a child to an adult could get good use out of it. Might be interesting for someone who is about to embark on a four year adventure (eg. high school, university).

This gift book can be found at gift shops, Barnes & Nobles and online.
Happy Shopping!
 Disclaimer: I received this product for review purposes, thanks to Penguin Random House and Blogging for Books, but all opinions are my own.

The Conejo Players is wrapping up their 2015 season with Stephen Sondheim's Follies from 13 November - 13 December following a delightful, energetic and entertaining production of Jason Robert Brown's 13 the Musical that just shuttered. It was certainly a great way to launch into autumn, showcasing the talents of many local teenage thespians including standout Haley Hallman (someone producers should seriously be looking at for their future Dorothy in Wizard of the Oz).

The upcoming 2016* season looks rich with potential and diversity featuring:

GIFT Guide: For the Wine Lover

06 October 2015

The holidays are fast approaching so time for  -- the 2015 gift guide!
And today I am thrilled to present the second recommendation, X-Chef's Corkscrew Wine Opener Set. Any wine lover needs a good quality corkscrew or two in their kitchen because everyone hates a cheap and useless corkscrew that has you calling down Zeus' bolt on the manufacturer. ;) Thankfully X-Chef has created a beautiful, strong, and easy to use product for the same price as the cheap drugstore version.

MUST SEE: Sound of Music on Tour

01 October 2015

The verdict is in. This gorgeous new equity tour of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Sound of Music is a breathtaking and heartbreaking love song to the soul! Captained by Jack O'Brien, this new production had the opening night audience on our feet before the first bows were complete and for once in a long time I can attest this cast was well deserving of said standing ovation -- everyone from the nun ensemble to O'Brien's spectacular find, the riveting Kerstin Anderson (Maria), were all vocally strong and full of life and rich passion.
