Grand Opening: Nespresso Beverly Hills Flagship Boutique

By: Ruth and Erin

Disclosure: We were invited out to the Grand Opening of the Nespresso Boutique in Beverly Hills. All thoughts and opinions are our own. Photographs all taken by Ruth. =)

This past week Nespresso opened up their doors with an extravagant Grand Opening Celebration for their new Flagship Boutique in Beverly Hills! I was bummed I could not make the trip out myself, but was excited to be able to send Ruth from So Cal Pocket Memories in my place. So here’s the scoop on what’s new in the 90210!

Last Wednesday I was invited to Nespresso’s grand opening of their Beverly Hills Boutique located on Beverly Drive.  Funny story, I was getting there and I was so excited to see the parking structure across the street.  Mind you I am an aggressive driver when I drive my little car.  A person crossing the sidewalk probably thought I wasn’t going to stop.  When he saw I stopped I looked at him and it was Jerry Springer!  I should of chanted Jerry!  Jerry!  Jerry! as he crossed, but decided to keep my cool since I was in Beverly Hills!

Come Enjoy California With A Coastal Wine Package At Cambria’s Blue Dolphin Inn and the Wine Wrangler!

 Come Enjoy California With A Coastal Wine Package At Cambria’s Blue Dolphin Inn and the Wine Wrangler!

By Erin

Disclosure: I was invited out to come stay at the Blue Dolphin in and go on a Wine Wrangler experience for purposes of this review. All thoughts and opinions remain my own and I have always had a love for the Central Coast in California! =)

One of my most favorite places to travel to in California is to the Central Coast, and Cambria is one of the things to love about the Central Coast. Cambria, CA is a quaint little beach town along the Central Coast where The Blue Dolphin Inn is located. Cambria is just 28 miles from Paso Robles, one of California’s most popular wine regions with more than 250 bonded wineries. The Blue Dolphin Inn has partnered up with The Wine Wrangler and is now offering a new “Coastal Wine Package” for those who want to enjoy crush season and some much needed coastal R&R!

The perfect travel destination for a romantic weekend with someone special, a girls getaway weekend, or a fabulous stopover point on a drive up or down the California coast, the Blue Dolphin Inn features the most luxurious accommodations that you will find on Moonstone Beach.

Wordless Wednesday: Cambria’s Scarecrow Festival!

Wordless Wednesday: Cambria’s Scarecrow Festival!

By: Erin

I recently went on a trip to Cambria (another post to follow on the amazing Blue Dolphin Inn and The Wine Wrangler) and we were greeted by many friendly folks along the side of the road upon our arrival. We soon realized that these friendly creations were scarecrows and that the scarecrow festival was going on right now in Cambria until October 31st!

The first Cambria Scarecrow Festival  was back in 2009, starting out with only 30 scarecrows. Now in 2013, over 400 scarecrows line Cambria’s business district. Cambria is a perfect year-round escape, with October being one of the best times of all to visit.  The warm October sun brightens the quaint seaside village. Hundreds of unique  scarecrows are displayed throughout Cambria’s East and West Villages and along Moonstone Beach Drive.

Here from October 1-31, the Cambria Scarecrow Festival will wow and amaze you while on your next visit. While here, also be sure to check out the cute boutiques, tasty restaurants, and don’t forget about the wine and beer tasting too. 😉 Take a stroll on the magical beaches or hike the many trails that wind their way from the beaches into the pines. You will soon see why I love the Central Coast so much with a visit here!
