3 Super Fisheye Camera Lens Kit 3 in 1 by Zeso would make a great gift!


I have to admit that even though I have a camera, most of the time I take photos using my iPhone. So, I was quite interested in finding out about this product. The Zeso Lens Super Fisheye Camera Lens 3 in 1 Kit is an unique set of lens designed to work with most any internal cameras found in today’s mobile devices. I have to say that I really didn’t know what to expect! But, this set of lens works great! I am having a lot of fun using them to take photos! There are three lens included: the Fisheye, 15X Macro and Wide Angle. So far, my favorite is the 15X Macro but the Fisheye is fun too! I love that it comes with a waterproof case and this would make a great gift for teens and adults! It would make a great graduation gift!

Universal CityWalk Serves up Four-Star Cuisine with the Addition of Acclaimed Chef Ludo Lefebvre LudoBird Restaurant, Opening Saturday, March 26


World renowned Chef Ludo Lefebvre brings his famous buttermilk Provençal Fried Chicken-inspired menu to Universal CityWalk™ with the debut of LudoBird™, serving up a vibrant and flavorful take on the American classic fried chicken sandwich, beginning Saturday, March 26, 2016.

“In my 20th year in Los Angeles, I’m excited to open LudoBird at Universal CityWalk,” said Chef Lefebvre.  “As the top entertainment destination in Los Angeles, CityWalk is the ideal match for my passion for this great city where I can create sensational food everyone can enjoy.”

CityWalk’s new establishment, LudoBird, which originated from Chef Lefebvre’s food truck concept called LudoTruck™, will invite Southern Californians, and guests visiting from around the globe, to dine alfresco on his tantalizing menu of fried chicken, signature sauces and side dishes.

“We are thrilled to welcome celebrated Chef Ludo Lefebvre to Universal CityWalk as we begin to phase in the next evolution of our dynamic CityWalk entertainment complex,” said Larry Kurzweil, President of Universal Studios Hollywood. “LudoBird’s landing coincides with Universal Studios Hollywood’s much anticipated opening of ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter,’ and we look forward to entertaining guests with everything that’s exceptional, from attractions to food.”

Celebrating 20 years in Los Angeles in 2016, Chef Lefebvre has shaped many culinary trends on both a local and global level and has gained notoriety as a culinary leader in the Los Angeles dining scene.

Chef Ludo Lefebvre hails from Burgundy, France, where he trained with the great masters of French Cuisine before moving to Los Angeles in 1996.  From the City of Lights to the City of Angels, Chef Lefebvre has redefined fine dining at his acclaimed Los Angeles restaurant, Trois Mec, has given Angelenos a taste of a true Parisian Bistro at Petit Trois, and uniquely combined French and Mexican cuisine for the most exciting brunch spot in town at Trois Familia.

Chef Lefebvre was named “One of The World’s 50 Greatest Chefs” by Relais & Chateaux, a global fellowship of individually owned and operated luxury hotels and restaurants, and was nominated for a James Beard Award in 2001 and 2015.  In 2015, Chef Lefebvre was “knighted” by the French government, receiving the prestigious Chevalier dans l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres award, which recognizes individuals for their contributions in furthering the arts in France and throughout the world, for his outstanding achievements in cultural diplomacy.

APPLE iPad Mini 4 Case by Boonix is a Must-Buy!


Do you have the iPad Mini 4? Looking for a great case that is even great for kids? I love the APPLE iPad Mini 4 Case by Boonix! It seems quite durable, is available in a variety of colors and my favorite thing is that it has an Anti-slip dual layer design that helps to protect from drops and scratches. I had my son try this one out and it is a hit in our house! It fits perfectly to your iPad Mini 4. All cutouts and buttons are precisely designed to access all your device’s features. I love the Blue Air-Cushion style one that I received. It fits snugly and it seems well made. I am quite impressed!
