I have been going to Famous Nails for over a year now and has become my favorite place to go for a manicure or pedicure. They do such a great job. I normally choose a simple manicure but they have a lot of designs to choose from if you like those. Their pedicures are great too and very relaxing. The staff there are very nice and highly skilled in their craft.
I have only shopped once at the Memory Lanes Antique Mall because I heard about the place from a friend of mine who said they got a really great deal on a piece of antique side table. The place is conveniently located right off the freeway and a parking lot is available for shoppers. I was surprised to see so many vendors selling their merchandise under the same roof. Unfortunately, I didnt find anything remotely suited to what I was looking for and I thought their prices were a too high.
Home To Garden is a store that sells outdoor furniture and decor and is located inside the Del Amo mall directly across the Macys department store. They carry some really interesting items for the garden like benches, gazing balls, arches. The style is more like antiquated Mediterranean. It was kind of fun to browse around the store and look at their merchandise.
Book again is a very nice book store that sells a lot of used books at very cheap prices. I like to go here and see if I can find hardcover books that I want to read. Sometimes I would call ahead and the staff are really nice and can let me know if theyve got a particular book Im looking for in stock or not before I make a trip.
My husband and I decided to visit the Normandie Casino since it is so close and we always see their commercials on t.v. We went with a couple of our friends and we had a great time. We didn't really play any of the table games we just went for the live entertainment and food. The food was great and so were the drinks at the sports bar.
I sometimes go to Conroys Flowers when I want flower arrangements for myself or to have it delivered to my mom. They do great floral arrangements and the have a lot of designs to choose from. The staff are also very nice and courteous and go out of their way to help you find the right arrangement to fit your budget.
My co-worker told me about the Griffith Park pony rides actually and so I took my daughter there to try it out since she always talked about wanting to have her own pony after seeing them on t.v. She was a little intimidated at first to ride the pony but the guy that worked there was so nice that he let her get back on again after her initial refusal to get on.
The Elegant Child of Beverly Hills is a very nice childrens boutique. The store sells a variety of items for kids like clothing, books, toys, furniture and accessories. The store carries some very unique items like handmade dolls which are extremely expensive and very cute photo albums that can be personalized.
My daughter also loves the Santa Ana Zoo which we dont go to very often since its farther away than the Los Angeles Zoo. My daughter loves the Crean family farm there where she gets to touch the farm animals and feed them. The goats and other farm animals are really gentle and dont mind the kids petting them either.
My daughter loves going to the zoo and I try to take her as often as I possibly can. We had gone there during the summer to see the new baby orangutang which delighted my daughter quite a bit. I would recommend though to bring a stroller because I had forgotten to bring my daughters stroller once and had to pay $7 to rent one which I thought was really expensive.
