I don’t know about you, but midway through summer with the kids out of school I always seem to be in need of a drink at the end of the day (don’t judge).  If you need a night out like me every once in a while, then check out a couple of new bars in L.A. called HARLOWE in West Hollywood and GOOD TIMES AT DAVEY WAYNE in Hollywood.  Both have amazing decor (Harlowe looks like Hollywood’s Golden Age and Good Times At Davey Wayne is straight out of the 70’s).  The drinks are delicious too.  Feel that summer stress just melt away once you step in the doors of these chic new bars.

I was lucky enough to go to FRENCH LAUNDRY'S 20th Anniversary Party in Napa, CA and let me tell you, it was an incredible event.  The food and wine was remarkable and proof that it is hands down one of the best restaurants in the world.  If you are in Napa anytime soon make sure to make a reservation now because it's hard to get in.

If you have kids like mine, they mean well, but they make a mess out of everything.  So when they ask to watch a movie on my laptop my first reaction is usually to say no because I know they’ll leave my keyboard a hot mess.  Well I got to test out a new product called KID LID (coming out soon) and it changed everything.  KID LID is a simple, smooth and durable keyboard cover that completely kid-proofs your computer and protects the keyboard from toddler hand pounding and drink spills! It’s genius! I mean, how many times have you had to restart a movie because they wont stop hitting buttons on the computer?!  They’re also coming out with products to cover your smart phone and tablet.  For more information check out Kid Lid’s Kickstarter page.  You’ll want one too!

MY SKIN RIGHT AFTER THE FACIAL

I have to let you in on a secret.  I found an incredible new place to get facials called KLS SKINCARE right in Toluca Lake.  Owner Kristy Swailes Konopka seriously knows her stuff when it comes to a holistic approach to making your skin look flawless.  Not only did I get a customized facial with natural, organic products (you won’t find anything with harsh chemical or toxins here), but I also got the most amazing massage as well.  What mom doesn’t need that?!  Whether you need blue LED lights for acne or an oxygen facial/peel for anti-aging,  she’s got it all.   And to top it off, it’s completely private.  Kristy only takes one client at a time so you can relax at your own personal retreat.  I’m telling you, this place is a gem.  Check it out now.

I was getting into that workout routine rut when my girlfriend told me about BODY BY SIMONE and now I’m actually excited about exercising again.  I know it’s been open for awhile now, but I’m so glad I finally got my lazy butt over there because this workout is killer and fun at the same time.  Yes you read right I actual enjoy going there.  They have all sorts of classes that range from dance or trampoline cardio to full body sculpting that instantly gives you the look of a dancers physique.  So get off the couch like I did and get yourself that body you’ve been wishing you had.

For a good laugh on my expense I decided to post these dorky photo of myself way too excited to be doing my other passion: acting.  As you can tell I was thrilled to be on set this week working with Jane Lynch.  Happy Friday!!!
