Winter in L.A

It’s snowing all over, but 80 degrees in L.A! A little song about this time of year:)

Winter in L.A

Winter in LA is not the same
Sunshine, top down every single day
But I still hear the jingle bells ringing in the cheer
and the combination makes the season kinda weird

Winter in LA in kinda strange
sun tanned Santa often overheats and get deranged
the snow machine is chuggin while everybody’s shoppin,
and most of it turns to rain
Oh winter in LA can be quite a shame

I dreamin of the day to cruise Sunset in a sleigh
with a hot eggnog latte, spinnin dreidel,
watching police tryin to put on chains

Oh winter in LA is not the same
The city of snow angels would be nice to see
Ill admit the LADWP light festival is quite the display

But if a blizzard graced this city,
those palm trees would look real pretty,
then Christmas in LA, Oh Chanukah in LA,
Oh Winter in LA would be such wonderful days.

- Roman Wood

Ojai, CA Getaway

One of the best thing about living in LA is getting out of the city for weekend getaways. There are so many great places only a few hours from the city, and it’s a great contrast traveling from the concrete jungle to the beautiful mountains that surround us! This past weekend we drove to Ojai, CA, and had an amazing and relaxing weekend in this cute little town. We definitely recommend taking the short hour and a half trek to Ojai from Los Angeles and want to highlight some things you must do while there.

Highlights from our  trip:

Boat ride on lake Casitas

Wine tasting at a few local wineries

Barts outdoor bookstore

Beautiful lookout and hike at meditation mount

The Food! Many of the restaurants served only local and organic ingredients and we highly recommend Farmer and the cook and The hip Vegan. Both places have the most amazing chai tea (fyi)

Shopping in downtown Ojai

Ojai has some great festivals too, check out the community calendar and pick a time to visit!

KODIAK CAKES: THE BEST FLAPJACK MIX IN THE WORLD

One night we came home late from a little date night of ice skating and coffee. We stopped at the store and found this flapjack and waffle mix we have never had before, and nothing is better than eating breakfast food late at night, right? Well this mix made flapjacks from heaven! If manna tasted like anything I image it like Kodiak Cakes. I (Roman) cant stop eating them, I’ve even tried other liquids to mix when making the batter instead of just water (as what it calls for), such as vanilla coconut milk and even Samuel Adams Winter Lager. A spiced beer with this mix is by far the best. To top it off we used some real Canadian maple syrup, Alaina is proud Canadian, she doesn’t mess around. Just thought I’d let you all know. Next time you need some comfort food get some Kodiak Cakes mix. Makes you want to go to camping in Canada ay buddy?

We are really excited to be working with them, they are one of those few music companies that are extremely supportive of the artist and their artistry. If you are looking to license music for any of your projects or films you must check them out, there is some great new artist with a amazing variety of musical flavors!

Weekend Getaway, Julian CA

If you live in Los Angeles and are looking for a quick vacation out of the city you need to check out Julian, CA.

Many people have never heard of this little historical town in San Diego County surrounded by apple orchards and vineyards.

There are many private cabins available to rent in the mountains near town, and the village is filled with antique stores, galleries, and bakeries serving fresh apple pie!

The cabin that we rented was called Eden Paradise Retreat, definitely recommend going here. The price was very reasonable to rent the cabin for the weekend, we showed up to  fresh baked pie and cider,  and the view was breathtaking!

If you would like to check out the cabin, click here.
