Let’s Talk Fall Rituals – LOS ANGELES HAUNTED HAYRIDE

October 11, 2018

FALL RITUALS: Sure, there’s your moon ceremony, fall equinox dance and organic apple picking to make whatever the latest adaptogenic, keto approved dessert is on the menu. But there’s a ritual in town, come Halloween, that I personally LOVE to celebrate, all in the name of fun – and isn’t that the most important health hack of all?

And that’s the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride.

Not familiar with this? Then you’ve been dipping into way too many CBD edibles. The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is an immersive scary, hilarious night of entertaining live fun  and most importantly – it brings my fam together. Yup – you heard me. Anything where both of my kids (8, 12) and begging to go – together –  means they are amped for an adventure where we all can connect IRL (hard these days when we are buried into screens). Not to mention we are on all the hayride hugging “for dear life”  because it’s all with a clear understanding of the wink. That’s the good news. They understand it’s all entertainment…they are growing up in Hollywood after all. Here’s some info on the history of it – created by a bad ass woman entrepreneur – Melissa Carbonne (Shark Tank_) ( hail yes!) and more deets on how to get tix etc. We cannot wait to hit it this Saturday. See you there?!! BTW, her company is almost all women so hell yes!

The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is in the haunted Old Zoo area of Griffith Park and Tickets are currently on sale with limited pre-sale tickets available until September 1st. You can purchase your tickets here.

As this is Hollywood, you just might catch David Beckham, Pete Wentz, Katy Perry, Nicole Richie getting their spook on. You’ll want to Instagram the crap out of it.   You’ve got your heart-pounding House Of Shadows Dark Maze, the disturbed neighborhood of Trick Or Treat and everyone’s favorite haunted village, Purgatory.

Oh HEEYYYY!!     I can’t WAIT for my kid to freak our over this one
Some carving inspo? You got a live jack-o-lantern Pintetest board right here.  Don’t forget the carousel. 

Some more history:

For fans that have been to every hayride, it will be an unforgettable ride through the nightmares the hayride has been inducing for years.  You will also be treated to new surprises and some larger than life additions that one would expect for a celebration as grand as a 10 Year Anniversary. For first timers, the experience will be a hayride on steroids as every memorable demon and apparition returns to say hello once again. Do you remember the demon church of “The Congregation”? Or the legions of psychopathic clowns from “Though The Eyes Of A Child”? Maybe you’d love to take a ride back through “The Rift”? Then, this is your year and then some! If you haven’t been to the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride, you will not want to miss out on this limited run special edition.

“I can’t believe it’s been ten years!” said Los Angeles Haunted Hayride founder/creator Melissa Carbone (@MelCarbs). “I want to send out the biggest ‘Thank You’ to everyone who has bought a ticket, worked for us and given their blood to make LA Haunted Hayride the most popular independently owned Halloween attraction in the country. Bringing back the content that the fans have told us they love and want more of is my way of doing that. I’m so excited to see the incredible characters of the past. Oh how I’ve missed them,” Carbone smugly laughs.

When you visit the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride your evening will include a stop in Purgatory. The charm and magic of our old world ‘haunted village’ invokes the nostalgia of Halloweens past; smell the freshly cut hay and see the deep, rich, orange glow of jack o’ lanterns as you pass through our gates. Become a part of the show at Theatre Macabre, ride the ‘Scary-Go-Round’, enjoy fair food & drink faves at the Grub Shack, have a clandestine encounter with a psychic, and don’t forget to grab your limited run anniversary swag in the Bootique.

Returning for this massive anniversary, the park will bring back cult favorites House Of Shadows and Trick Or Treat. The legendary House Of Shadows sends you into complete darkness as you grasp onto your group and stumble through Southern California’s only true dark maze! It is a disorienting, claustrophobic experience where you might find yourself totally alone in the shadows. At Trick Or Treat, it’s Halloween every night. Check out our ALL-NEW ghoulish residents as we have amped up the fright factor for this annual freakish block party.

The terror of the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride begins on September 29th, 2018 and will be open select nights until October 31st, 2018. Operating hours are Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 7pm-10:30pm and Fridays and Saturdays from 7pm-12am, with the exception of September 29th when we close at 11pm. General Admission and VIP passes that surpass the line are available, as well as a Platinum pass that includes VIP parking! There are also a limited number of Hayride Only passes starting at $26, all expected to sell out during the pre-sale. Pre-sale for tickets will end September 1st. Visit www.losangeleshauntedhayride.com for exact nights of operation and other details.

H FACTOR WATER

October 9, 2018

Katie Welch looking gorg with H Factor.

When a new hydration situation pops into view, we get excited – VERY EXCITED.

Here’s the deal – plain and simple:
“Because Hydrogen is the smallest molecule and it is a carrier, it bonds with the compound molecule of water and permeates the water directly into your organs and tissues and muscles. your brain is a giant muscle so it reduces inflammation and hydrates you in real time.”

People have had results of, clearer skin, energy boosts, relief from chronic pain, and so many more.

HYDROGEN INFUSED WATER IS CLINICALLY PROVEN TO
INCREASE
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE
REDUCE INFLAMMATION
FROM EXERCISE

DELIVER POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANTS 

 

The water comes in both a can and eco-conscious pouches which are built to hold the perfect proportion of hydrogen. The pouches are my perfect handy go-to. I am never not thirsty. I seriously suffer from a chronic dry mouth. These light weight pouches save me from lugging around bottles of water all day and I now just make sure they are tossed into all my bags, my car…well…everywhere. My kids are obsessed and anything that makes drinking water fun for kids…I AM IN!!

Culture Alert

October 7, 2018

Here
October 25, 2018 through January 6, 2019
Opening Reception, October 21, 2018, 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. 


The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG), and the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation (BAPF) are pleased to present the group exhibition, Here, which will be on view at LAMAG located at 4800 Hollywood Boulevard in Barnsdall Park, from October 25, 2018, through January 6, 2019, with an opening reception on October 21, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Here is a group exhibition that examines shifting physical/geographical and conceptual/imagined boundaries (and boundlessness) in, and around, the metropolis of Los Angeles. Boundaries provide us the physical and conceptual framework to delineate the idea of “self” from “other,” and “here” from “there.” However, boundaries contain an inherent paradox; as political theorist William E. Connolly succinctly suggests, “Boundaries provide pre-conditions of identity, individual agency, and collective action; but they also close off possibilities of being that might otherwise flourish. Boundaries both foster and inhibit freedom; they both protect and violate life.”    

In addition to the natural and traditional human geography (such as neighborhoods), the artists assembled in Here investigate Los Angeles’s internal physical and conceptual boundaries, the bridges in-between, and permeability of these boundaries. Here explores these localized frictions – the hybridity and fluidity of Los Angeles – to uncover these bounded and unbounded landscapes within Los Angeles. 

Here features works by Heimir Björgúlfsson, Sandra de la Loza, Gajin Fujita, Gloria Galvez, Anna Sew Hoy, Iris Yirei Hu, Annetta Kapon, Patrick Martinez, Jane C. Mi, Alison O’Daniel, Renée Petropoulos, Nancy Popp, Umar Rashid, Sandy Rodriguez, Fran Siegel, Henry Taylor, and Mario Ybarra Jr.


Step2 presents the 7th Annual Celebrity Red Carpet Event

September 26, 2018

September’s Child Safety Month ended with the 7th Celebrity Red CARpet Safety Awareness Event, a fun-filled, educational, inspiring and engaging event for parents and kids that benefitted Baby2Baby!
The event aimed to help spread awareness about Car Seat Safety as well as other areas of safety (Activity Safety, Car Seat Safety, On-The-Go Safety, Home Safety, Body Care Safety, and Kitchen Safety) that affect parents and their precious loved ones.
As a mom, Baby2Baby has always been tucked away deep in my heart where it holds forever space. An incredible, inspiring organization that really holds to the simple words – give back.
Celebs stepped out to celebrate and bring awareness to this worthy life-changing cause.
