2014 CHOC Walk Disneyland

We are participating in the CHOC Walk in the Park on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at the Disneyland Resort.

Please join us in our efforts to raise needed funds to support the care, services, education and research that CHOC Children’s provides children in our community.

Your support is needed more than ever, as funds from this amazing fundraiser support the care and treatment of Southern California’s children.  For 50 year’s CHOC Children’s has stood as a distinguished non-profit children’s hospital, committed to providing the highest quality medical care to all children, no matter what their family’s financial capacity.  In 1964, CHOC broke ground on the original campus in the City of Orange with one mission: to nurture, advance and protect the health and well-being of children. No child is ever turned away.

Your support will help ensure our kids’ futures will be brighter than ever.

HYLUNIA Wellness MD Spa


HYLUNIA Wellness MD Spa

Recently, I was invited to the HYLUNIA Wellness MD Spa by the lovely Recessionista. The ONE and ONLY Recessionista, often imitated, never replicated. This was something I desperately needed.

I had been working two full time jobs, taking care of children who had just went back to school, been diagnosed with Celiac Disease and ultimately just overwhelmed.

They offer so many things from yoga and meditation to facials and massages.

Eastern natural therapies combined with Western science are your key to achieving your body mind and beauty goals. Defy aging, manage stress enhance happiness with Hylunia’s holistic science-based natural therapies…

I got a lovely facial and a massage and left feeling like a million bucks. I went in an overwhelmed woman and they put my mind at ease. I honestly felt like I was in Bali. They have amazing changing rooms complete with a flat iron for our hair! That was genius, I must say.

HYLUNIA Wellness MD Spa

They have an amazing skincare line. It’s a safe, natural and vegan skincare line that works. Toxin free, paraben free, gluten free, GMO free, preservative free, holistic and vegan. Something I can use! I am so excited about this.

So, if you need to relax go visit HYLUNIA Wellness MD Spa. I did and it was totally worth it.
