California's Great America

Great America has been one of the best theme parks I've visited. I grew up with Great America out here in the bay area, and I know that the park attracts visitors from all over the country.

If you've never been, you should check out the 70+ rides and attractions they have. I've been to shows here, and I always have a good time. If rides aren't your cup of tea, some of my friends come out for shows and to have a picnic, or to hang out at the water rides/slides. You can even check out Planet Snoopy. It's a good time for the family and kids.

Gilroy Gardens Lumination

I recently saw an advertisement for Gilroy Gardens' new Lumination event, and wanted to check it out! 

Lumination is a festival of lights celebrating 2,000 years of Chinese culture and history. This is the first lantern festival to take place on the west coast, with 30 major sculpture displays and fun landmarks that are represented.

I'm excited to bring my family and friends here. The kids will love the dragons, pandas in the bamboo forest, and they will even have live performers!

This event will take place from now until November 29th. Gilroy Gardens is a family theme park located in Gilroy, CA.

Hollywood Wax Museum

Last month, I took a trip to Los Angeles and Hollywood for the first time! A few places were recommended to me, including the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the Guinness World Records Museum, so we checked that out during our vacation.

Digital Media Academy - Summer Tech Camp for Kids

I live in the heart of the Silicon Valley, where technology and ideas are as innovative as they come. I think it's really cool for camps to start incorporating technology into their summer programs for kids.

If you're looking for a fun and educational way to help your son or daughter learn some of the latest technologies, such as robotics, app development, or even programming, check out Digital Media Academy!

Trip to Hollywood

Hi everyone! I've been missing in action due to work and personal events this year, but I'm back on track. I decided to reward myself with a trip to LA this week, and I'm so excited!

I'm going to be in the Hollywood area, and I have my eye on a couple places to check out.

First off, the Hollywood Wax Museum! I'm so excited!

Coobie Bras Review

With everything that is going on in my life right now, one of the most important aspects of life to me is my comfort. Even when my days are 14-16 hours long, I still manage to remain comfortable, thanks to Coobie!

California's Great America Theme Park

Every summer, I take my family to visit Great America. You just can't have a summer without the fun rides and theme park memories! 
Luckily, we live in the bay area and we can visit as much as we want. Whether you're a Northern California resident, or visiting for the summer, check out this great deal on tickets!

The Grizzly (wooden ride pictured above) is actually one of my favorite rides at Great America! Other rides include Gold Striker, which is the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster in Norcal. The Gold Striker has the longest initial descent tunnel on any coaster!

 Aerial Ice Extreme (as seen on Season 8 of America's Got Talent) is a brand-new, high-energy, aerial, stunt and ice show with an incredible cast of ice skaters and acrobat gymnasts! 

Here's another cool thing about California's Great America - it is the only theme park in California to offer a complete water park inside - free with park admission, known as Boomerang Bay. 

In the fall, Great America transforms into an amazingly fun Halloween extravaganza featuring 8 mazes, ghoulish monsters, 3 scare zones and shows. The 100-acre theme park is located on Great America Parkway between highways 101 and 237 in Santa Clara, CA. 

The park is open daily now through August 16, and each weekend throughout November. 

Score a great deal with the online Family Four Pack (tickets for just $37.99 each)

Nature's Best Vitamin C Serum Review

This month I wanted to test out several vitamin c serums since my skin has responded really well to them. I wanted to share a serum I've been using by Nature's Best Vitamin C serum. It's useful to get these serums in a dropper bottle so you can control the amount that you're using, as opposed to a pump or squeeze bottle. 

Nature's Best serum is formulated to stimulate collagen and helps with fine lines and wrinkles. I noticed that in the last few years, my face products were not helping my skin's elasticity and firmness, so I wanted something that would target those issues as well.
