Take a look at these awesome freaky labels! The ghosts and ghouls attending your haunting party can take their pick of poison, fresh blood, or witch’s brew! Tasty! Which would you like to try first? 😉

4) Spider Web Personalized Stickers and Treat Boxes


I saw these and knew they’d be perfect to hand out to the students that I tutor and teach as you can personalize them with the name of your choice. This would be perfect to hand out to friends, co-workers, or for kids to hand out to their classmates at school or to their good friends. I love the look and the colors in this, and it is the perfect size to put in some yummy holiday treats!

5) Trick Or Treat Have Some Sweets Personalized Candy Bowl


Halloween wouldn’t be complete without the perfect bowl to put your Trick-Or-Treat sweets in! The bowl is VERY heavy, but it is very large as it will hold 5 quarts of your favorite treats! I love the saying on the bowl, “Trick or Treat, have some Sweets!” and the fun Halloween colors make it very festive. It is the perfect bowl to keep my candy in for all the trick or treaters that come by.

I think we are all set for Halloween now! What are your “Must Haves” for the Halloween season?


Detour Bistro Bar Opens in Culver City #BestDetourEver @DetourBistroBar

Detour Bistro Bar Opens in Culver City

By Erin

As if there weren’t enough detours already in Los Angeles with all the freeway and street construction that is continuously going on, this is a Detour you will want to take. I took this Detour myself the other night as part of a media preview, and it left me curious to try more. The Detour Bistro Bar has arrived in the Los Angeles area into Culver City. The Detour combines farm-to-table produce with seasonal California and European inspired dishes to create a unique neighborhood  dining destination in Culver City. This westside restaurant  belongs to Los Angeles locals Ranni Kumgisky and Dane Pearson who are long-time caterers. These two are always searching for the most fresh seasonal ingredients to create weekly menus that will keep customers wanting to come back for more.

The Detour is open daily for happy hour, dinner and weekend brunch. Starting April 6th, they will be opening for lunch at 3pm Monday-Friday.

Why don’t we take a look into what the Detour has to offer?


The Detour is a quaint little place, but the decor is very LA. I loved the layout of the space, it made it feel bigger and more spacious that what it actually is. It is a very nice, bright and airy space and also has an outdoor patio you can enjoy on a nice sunny California afternoon or evening.


Best Detour Ever. I love the walls here.


I know many people, including myself who would love to have one of these! So creative.


The menu for the media preview.


We started the evening out with some drinks. From left to right; The Diablo, Honey Old Fashioned, and the Summer Splash. I had the Summer Splash which consisted of vodka, cranberry, pineapple, and sweet and sour. It was very refreshing and not to fruity, perfect for a nice warm spring evening.

Detour-Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp Tacos: Cabbage, cilantro sauce, corn tortillas. So simple, yet so good. This was my favorite item from the night. I love shrimp, and these shrimp were pretty darn good, I also love tacos. It always makes for a great combination.


Lamb & Goat Cheese Flatbread: Lamb, Goat cheese, apricot marmalade, and mint. This was also a pretty tasty bite that we tried. Very flavorful and tender.
