I just wanted to share two great things to take note of and make for a full day of family fun.
Palos Verdes Street Fair
Sunday June 13 10am-9pm
If you want to have food from different cultures, a new wardrobe, adopt a kitten, listen to live music, buy beautiful artwork or have solar panels installed in your house then this one stop shop is great for you. They even have pony rides and those ones that make you sick to your stomach. :) ENJOY!
A small article with more information here
(PS there are some folks there that rescue abandoned animals, we brought them some bags of kitten food. Any donation is appreciated and they have dogs and cats!)
Fuchsia Show and Sale at the South Coast Botanic Garden (oh and for the men the FERRARI show will also be there)
Sunday June 13 10am-4pm
South Coast Botanic Garden"
26300 Crenshaw Boulevard
Palos Verdes Peninsula, California 90274
Phone: (310) 544-1948
Have you seen a Fuchsia? I discovered my love for these amazing little flowers while galavanting through Inismor Island in Ireland. I found these flowers that looked like dancing ballerinas, still in the Irish darkness after the rain made it's stop on the sleepy town... it is then that I fell in love with a flower. I think every girl should have some Fuchsia's to bring out their inner ballerina. :)
Here is the one and only photo I got on that trip of my dancing friend
Have a fabulous Sunday

Did you miss the huge sample sale at Tulle? Poor you, BUT you may be in luck! Tulle has announced their JUNE ONE DAY SALE which is online only and will be happening in just a few days.
June 1, 2010
starts at 12am PST
here at the Tulle website
They have some really great prices lined up so be sure you tune in and act fast, I have learned in the past that things do not last too long sometimes.
Memorial Day weekend will be a huge event in the South Bay. If you are a fan of the arts and the beach, time with family and friends, live music and beer gardens (especially that benefit great charities), then Fiesta Hermosa is the place to be!
How lucky are we that the "largest arts and crafts fair in Southern California" will be right here in our own backyard. This event has been going on for over 30 years and will have nearly 300 artists and crafters and 18 different ethnic food choices all just a block from the sand. There will also be activities and rides for kids so this is for sure an event for Family Fun.
The parking scene is horrendous but there will be shuttles and as always a bicycle would be a great option! Check out the Fiesta Hermosa website for more information and to answer all you questions. See you at the beach!
Check out this VIDEO of Fiesta Hermosa so you can get a feel for it.

Sadly this is all of the information I have gotten and I do not see anything online about the event, however anything having to do with keeping kids safe is an A+ to me, so it should be worth while to check out.

Monte and Kiley graced us all with beautiful music last Tuesday at Suzy's bar in Hermosa Beach. Here are a few photos from that evening as well as videos of their performances. We hope to see them again together soon! (sorry it has taken so long to put these up) See many of you this Saturday Feb 27 at Fantasy Springs in Palm Springs for the Adam Lambert concert!

Tuesday, February 23, 2010, Monte Pittman and Kiley Dean will be performing together at the Suzy's Bar Open Mic Night in Hermosa Beach. The time is not yet determined, but I would say do your best to be there no later than 8pm. Monte Pittman is not only known as being a great guitar teacher, but he has been a key musician in the bands for Prong, Madonna and his current position is as the guitarist for Adam Lambert. If you have been to a Madonna concert over the past 8 or so years or if you have seen any of her live performances such as the Hope for Haiti OF if you have seen any of the interviews/performances with Adam Lambert from television performances such as the Grammy's, Oprah, David Letterman...etc... then you have seen Monte Pittman. You can follow Monte on Twitter @Monterrific
Kiley Dean is a contemporary singer with 3 Albums on her belt, some which have been produced or had guest appearances by big names like Timbaland and Randy jackson. Much of Kileys recent work included being a back-up for Britney Spears on two different tours and most recently touring as back-up for Madonna during 2008 and 2009. You can follow Kiley on Twitter @KileyDean
Suzy's Bar Open Mic
The South Bay is in for a treat as these two talents will combine Tuesday evening. There is no entry fee so come and enjoy the many different artists that perform 15 minute sets, giving you just a taste of their talents and making you want to return every tuesday. Suzy's Bar has great prices on tacos and beer during Open Mic night and always a varied crowd gathered to watch musicians from an array of genres. Seating is quite limited, so if you come hungry and thirsty it may benefit you so that you may get a table. Please be 21 and over.

Dive N Surf is a great local South Bay business that is known around the world, mostly in the Surf community. In 1953 the Meistrell twins invested into the local sports shop with a couple of friends. Business grew and grew and in 1957 the Meistrells bought out their partners and became the sole owners of Dive N Surf. 1990 marked another landmark year for the Meistrell brothers when they were "inducted into the Diving Hall of Fame and the Pioneers of Surfing." Dive N Surf is still going strong today, even after the passing of brother Bill Meistrell, the company continues to be as popular as ever. Dive N Surf is a household name to many South Bay residents. I love that you can get Dive Certified through Dive N Surf. That is certainly on my to do list!

This is the last week for the Dive N Surf Annual Yard Sale, it will end on February 28th. You can score some great deals on dive/surf gear, clothing, gadgets and other goodies. If you buy some specific items you may even score some life tickets to Mt. Baldy!

Here is a video shot in Redondo Beach by Holly Beck a local South Bay surfer and diver, Holly is what I would consider the Poster Child for Dive N Surf. She truly encompasses the passion for the sports that Dive N Surf lives for. Holly is quite inspirational and such a great girl. Look for her videos next time you are on Holly Beck's youtube and become a fan on Holly Beck's Facebook Fan Page. She has some wonderful stories, videos and photos to share.
What is "Punk Art"?
It seems only suiting after my recent post all about the music scene of the South Bay that there will now be an exhibit featuring the art of South Bay punk music. Local company, AMI Productions, formed by some South Bay natives has created an art exhibit that is on display in Hermosa Beach and features fliers, posters and other media that has graced the area over the past 30 years. The gallery is showcasing the classic and world famous South Bay Punk bands such as Pennywise, Black Flag and the Descendants as well as those better known around the area and those just getting started. This will certainly be an interesting look at how the Punk scene has progressed over the years.
When and Where:
Punk Art will be on display NOW- April 1, 2010 at the Hermosa Beach Historical Museum and is open to all Ages.
Hermosa Beach Historical Museum
710 Pier Avenue
Hermosa Beach, Ca 90254
310 318 9421
HOURS: 10am-12pm Wednesdays, 2pm-4pm Saturdays and Sundays (excluding holidays)
On Tuesday, February 23, 2010 it will be the IHOP National Pancake Celebration where from 7am-10pm you can get a FREE short stack of 3 buttermilk pancakes. IHOP asks that you consider making a donation to the Childrens Miracle Network, but they are not requiring it. (however it would be a great idea!) :)

If you are not already a PINKBERRY GROUPIE then I strongly suggest you go to pinkberry.com and become one. Why? Well, because every so often Pinkberry sends out some great offers to those that have signed up. The new offer they just sent out is for 2/12-2/19 Buy One Get One Free PINKBERRY. Go to that link and print out the coupon, you can even print more than one! I am excited especially because I have a $20 Pinkberry giftcard I just got, so this means I could potentially get $40 worth :)
I am thinking you may even be able to order it online and use the coupon... You might have to call and ask :)
Look in the shaving area OR in your clearance section. The Gillette Fusion Razor that is a special BRONCOS edition is on clearance for $5.00. Match that up with the $4 off any Gillette Fusion Razor coupon from the 2/7 PG and you will have a new razor and a couple of blades for $1. These are usually priced between $7-$10 on average. You could even buy 5 razors if you have the coupons and it would be about $10 less than buying refill blades.
I can not find a photo anywhere but this is a great deal. :)
