I got sick from the food prepared by Marty's Catering & Barbeque. I hate to even say it, but I did. We were at a party they did and within an hour of eating some pork ribs I was in the bathroom a mess. I was so embarassed and mortified, I stayed in there for the duration of the party. I don't know if it was the port itself or the spices, I just know it didn't agree with me.
Chanel Islands Catering did the event we went to with friends for a fundraiser for the local children's hospital. I liked the layout of the food verses the actual quality. I somehow feel the caterer was a bit limited on the budget and was told to stretch the dollars. For what variety they had, it was plentiful.
King's Mobile Detailing surprised me when my fiance arranged for my car to be detailed. He had them come to my office and take care of my car and his, which he brought when they arrived. They did such a nice job and my car looked like her old self when they were done. I had been so busy with work and wedding errands, I was neglecting her. My fiance took care of us both.
Cat Vacation took care of my cat when we were gone over the Christmas holidays last year. They were so good to him, he didn't want to come home! They pamper the pets they take care of and gave me a daily accounting of how he did. My little boy was a love muffin while there and was invited to come back for a vist any time.
There's no doubt about it, I had the quickest pedicure of my life at the Paradise Nail & Spa. I was in and out in 15 minutes. It certainly wasn't paradise as I was practically manhandled and rushed through my service. It felt like I had barely sat down when they were rushing me over to the dryers.
The seaweed wrap I had done at the Por Vida Skin Care salon was just what the doctor ordered. I never realized how time consuming wedding planning could be and decided to schedule in some alone, relaxation time. Por Vida was my answer to a modern day dosage of Calgon.
Ardie's Waxing did my eyebrows at the urging of my sister. I could take a hint, so I followed along and practically cringed along the way. Despite my minor theatrics, my eyebrows came out nicely done.
Oooohh the chocolate confections from Ojai Chocolat are beyond my ability to describe accruately. Imagine dark creamy chocolate, savor it on your tongue and then wait for the richness to overtake your senses. It's heavenly. I've been buying their chocolates for quite some time and fell in love when I first tasted them at the Ojai Farmers market.
Lassen's Health Foods has a nice selection of the foods I normally buy. I would much rather support them than say a Henry's or a Whole Foods. Their products are always right on and their employees are always willing to lend a hand to help me find things. I enjoy shopping there.
Optimal Nutrition is an interesting place. They do sell all sorts of nutritional supplements and protien powders and all the latest fat loss items. What I found interesting about them isn't what they sell per se, it's the person doing the selling. I didn't catch his name, but he had an over the top personality and didn't mind telling you/lecturing you on how to be more healthy. I enjoyed what he had to say, because it reminded me a bit about being in the audience of a stage show.
