The founder of online baby boutique California Cozy is a mother of two herself, so she carries products she's personally tested and adored. Perhaps not surprisingly, that's left her store stocked with items from award-winning brands such as Aden + Anais, Barefoot Dreams, and Melissa & Doug. Her celeb-approved collection has been featured in People and Us Weekly, particularly perennial favorites such as Little Giraffe's chenille baby blankets—which snagged Most Ridiculously Soft Baby Blanket in the 2012 Cribsie Awards. The diverse selection also includes mealtime essentials, furniture, and toys, which no doubt led to California Cozy's selection as a finalist for Red Tricycle's Most Awesome Baby & Maternity Shop award in 2012.
Since receiving her dental degree from Loma Linda University in 1990, Dr. Tania Baker has made it a point to stay ahead of the technological curve. At Calabasas Dental Spa, she and her staff schedule advanced general and cosmetic services such as Zoom! teeth whitening, CEREC crowns that can be implemented in one visit, and laser fillings that can replace certain types of cavities without drilling or dynamite. Keeping with the modern theme, the office features sunny yellow walls in the waiting room, earthy green walls in the treatment rooms, and light wooden floors throughout.
For more than 25 years, Miami Tan's bronzing experts have been doling out tans without subjecting clients to hours in the sun. Since opening the first Southern California location in 1985, the crew has helped clients achieve natural-looking tans with multiple UV beds of varying intensities. As the center grew in popularity, so did its offerings. Today, the award-winning tanning salons offer clients both UV and UV-free treatment options, including professional airbrush tans, red-light collagen therapy beds, and Formostar infrared body wraps.
At Escentials, a beauty shop nestled in the rolling hills of Calabasas, licensed aesthetician Trini Ponce de Leon hydrates and exfoliates complexions. Working in the shop's private facial room, she sloughs away dead skin with microdermabrasion treatments, and pampers visages with an array of facials. With her custom waxes, she also strips away unwanted stubble.
The raw nature of Southern California is a painting turned into reality. Mountains kiss the sky, hills roll across the horizon, and canyons cut deep into the region's red, cherry-hued rock. SoCal Adventure Company's guides take groups to all of these destinations. With gear and healthy snacks in tow, they lead beginners and experienced adrenaline junkies alike on day trips ranging from rock climbing to canyoneering, a mode of adventure hiking that mixes in some thrilling rappels.
The guides lead groups on hikes through the mountains, help them climb top ropes, and rappel down cliffs through waterfalls. Occasionally, they even pause to swim through the pools at the canyon's bottom. Additionally, SoCal Adventure Company's guides always look for new ways to explore. To that end, they lead a trip of the week with an ever-changing itinerary.
