I can’t believe I didn’t post about this earlier! If you are looking for something fun, amazing, educational and did I mention FREE for the entire family, you have to check out the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The festival will be taking place this weekend April 21st to April 22nd. The Festival of Books is held at the University of Southern California’s Campus (USC) and is absolutely Free. The only thing you will have to pay for is parking ($10).
The goal of the LA Times Festival of Books is to connect people that love books, with the people who wrote them. Simple as that! The festival is a free public event, and includes exciting author events, storytelling, cooking demonstrations and poetry readings. The Target Children’s Stage will feature the authors of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the voices of Dora the Explorer engaging in storytelling.
For mom and dad, there will also be some FUNtastic authors including Bethenny Frankel, Betty White, Ricky Lake, Cheryl Burke, John Cusak and many many more. Some of these panels require tickets. The tickets are free but there is a $1 processing fee.
There is something for everyone! You won’t want to miss it. For additional info head here.
I love a good day at the spa. It’s been quite some time since I’ve had the time to head to the spa with a girlfriend and relax all my worries and stress away. One of my favorite spas in the area is Burke Williams Day Spa. You relax the minute you walk through the door and have a glass of cucumber water. Just thinking about it makes me relax!
Burke Williams is offering three special Mother’s Day packages that would be the perfect excuse to get away with a friend, sister or a great day with mom. Here are the specials offered in honor of Mother’s Day. They have locations throughout Southern California with two in Orange County, Mission Viejo and Orange and five locations in the greater LA area, Pasadena, Santa Monica, Sherman Oaks, West Hollywood and Torrance.
