Freak Of The Week: PCH Cabin Porn

As predicted in my last post (Pray For Rain), our incredible Los Angeles Rain Fest 2017 continues. It was fun for a while, but after the Netflix queue is caught up and you’ve eaten your bodyweight in Pirate Booty, a girl’s gotta get outside! So during a recent gap between deluges, I headed down to the beach to reacquaint myself with salt water when what to my...

Petersen Automotive Museum + Kids + Mama

I recently took 4 kids: 3 boys and one girl to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.  We were there to answer the following burning questions: *can kids truly be entertained at a museum? *will the partnership between Pixar & the Petersen fly with the little monsters? *is the Petersen’s remodel a hit or miss with the kids? *can Mama handle an entire day...

Car Slut Confessions: Pantera Perversion

Freak of the Week: The Mexican Croc Hunter

One of my favorite places to look for crazy cars is Mexico.  My Latino friends (especially the men) aren’t shy about being as freaky as possible in their rides.  But sadly, this summer I’ve been chained to my desk and unable to stray south of the border. The good news is I live in LA, where Mexico comes to you. I was recently driving into...
